Roll and Coasters: The Soul

R&Cs: The Soul

Top Dawg Etertainment, home of Kendrick Lamar and SZA, recently added Reason, a Carson CA rapper, to their quality-loaded roster. Along with the announcement, Reason released an intro-of-sorts titled “The Soul”. We lead off with that fiery one and some of the lyrics (quoted below) justify why.

Look, patience, new beginning’s comin’
Niggas been had drive, had to get the engine runnin’
You either die chasin’ dreams or you gon’ live for nothin’
Shit, nigga I’d get murdered ‘fore I not make it
Niggas told me, “spot’s taken”
Nigga, it’s Reason, word to Liam Neeson
If it’s taken once then you can take it twice
Don’t ever think they love you, that’s some great advice
So if you ain’t used to pay attention, gotta pay the price
Shit, just a year ago, nigga, I was hatin’ life
Eight to five workin’ for massa, I slaved through it
Nights cryin’ to P like, “I hate music”
Now my shows sell out like Ray Lewis

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
