This is not a review.
GrandSun’s No Fear didn’t try to bask in his lyrical dexterity. It came with one message and one message only: You will never be misguided if you know where you belong
The track simply asks these few questions:
Who are you?
What do you do?
Who is your crew?
What do you listen to?
If they take out the beat from your heart (your music), will you still be alive (the content be relevant)?
What have you taught the populace with your music so far?
After compromising,how much have you made? Or are you just another name tag abandoned after the course?
For those who’d like to read or find difficulty downloading this track, find the lyrics below:
Who are you trying to impress when the minds of the crowd is fickle
Better not say it’s the people
Cos as soon as the new guy comes along
They will cut your applause with a nonchalant sickle
I did it from the heart, I did it for myself
Acknowledged conscience before my cds hit the shelves
They said my content is ridiculous
I’m deluding myself
But I refused to budge so they said suit yourself
Well I did and got myself a fantastic 3 piece
It’s the same way I take my time to clothe any release
They were looking for money I was looking for peace
Yes I found God in the belly of the beast
And the brevity of life gives wisdom
I am counting my teeth with my very own tongue
You will never be misguided if you know where you belong
And I have been writing epitaphs before I was gone
Bana Tsoron Kowa
If you like take it to heart I don’t care
Out of ignorance some people hate the hip hop culture
Trying to throw out the baby with the bath water
I don’t blame some of them cos that’s somebody’s daughter
Half naked in the videos with lyrics like gutter
Hip-hop isn’t dead you just want to bury it alive …Why?
Cos any rapper that raps some truth is gonna be wrapped in poverty
Cos you just won’t buy
Why should they try?
What’s selling is sex and how to get high
Sky scrapping egos denial and the lies
This is food for thought please take a diploma (deep loma)
Muna fama da gonan litaffi muna noma
A lots going on but nobody’s talking about it
Rapping about nothing
My delete button aint bluffing
Cos the very people that claim to love hip-hop are the ones killing it
And still claiming real in it?
