Title: Streets
Artist: DeX
Instrumental Produced By: War-spawn (http://war-spawn.newgrou nds.com/)
Mixed and Mastered: mseemercury aka Merc (http://mseemercury.newgr ounds.com/)

First submission of 2010.

Well I released a more mainstream sounding track a while back and I think it's about time to release my first solo track and one of the more underground songs that I have. I hope that every person pays attention to the lyrics because they send a powerful message. Either way, enjoy the song and don't forget to drop a review and vote.

Shout out to merc who mixed and mastered this track, thanks a lot man.

~Lyrics~

Verse 1

These kids growin' up with no one to follow
mistakin' gang banger's for some type of role model
my own motto is always anticipate tomorrow
livin' in the projects will make your heart hollow
life can be awful but we gotta survive
it ain't about the strife but what you do with your time
we complain about racism when we can't coincide
even when we try with the presence of our own kind

*Hook*
These streets, our children bein' swallowed
growin' up with no one to follow
stuck between the creases of the shadows
their lives endin' up in sorrow

Verse 2

Take a step back and think about your decisions
I'm sure an early coffin is not what you envisioned
either that or you'll soon be locked up in a prison
it'll all be contingent on whether you're malicious
I'm indignant with people lackin' common sense
no matter what race, religion or continent
I compliment those who avoid this nonsense
but in the end you're stuck in the void of the projects

These streets make me feel incomplete
These streets robbin' kids of their dreams

I hope ya'll realize that I'm speakin' the truth
I ain't preachin' lies so don't get it misconstrued
I refuse to admit that these people are confused
what's real is we all have the ability to choose

*Hook*
These streets, our children bein' swallowed
growin' up with no one to follow
stuck between the creases of the shadows
their lives endin' up in sorrow

Verse 3

This is for the lives that took one for the streets
wrong place, wrong time but still have been deceived
it's sad when the gates of god open for dreams
it ain't the shots that scream but the souls that sing

*Hook*
These streets, our children bein' swallowed
growin' up with no one to follow
stuck between the creases of the shadows
their lives endin' up in sorrow

-Outro-

These streets
These streets
These streets...

Undisputed..

Without a doubt you are the best at putting a flow down on Newgrounds. Your delivery and your subject matter is diverse and speaks to the true essence of Hip Hop and isn't this lame manufactured bullshit being pushed on us but the record companies. Keep dropping hot shit bro.

Take this 5 homie...good shit.

Pretty Good

Man for some reason this song reminds me of something Atmosphere would make. If you haven't heard of him check him out. Anyway, good job dude.

Yeah I've heard of Atmosphere, not a big fan of his but he does make some real hip-hop and I respect that in every way. Thanks for the review, stay up.
