"Blessing it (feat. Substantial & Pase Rock)" by Nujabes


Each one, teach one we free each one
Maryland and Cincinatti to the far east son
And we just begun to spread the gospel
Substantial, Pase Rock, hip hop apostles
Far from preachin with this art you call rappin
Takin y’all back to before this all happened
Frontin hardcore when you barely soft porn
Never penetratin the inner to get your heart warm
Rock on, at the ridiculous pace
Disrepect hip hop and I’ll spit in your face
These pitiful wastes of oxygen, it’s madness
Get in your case, and all your shit, like back checks
Got my eye on ya, like insanity grabbed ya
Y’all seedy packagin, and I can’t stand rappin
You’re bound to get ripped, and then turned into garbage
I stay blessin mics, my followers pay homage

Substance, blessin it
Yes I am, blessin it
UV for life, hell yes we stay blessin it
Pase on, blessin it
Yes I stay blessin it
Five Deez forever you know we stay blessin it

On point like the pens we write with
Livin righteous, in these times of peril and crisis
The pain’ll squeeze you lifeless, dead, what’s the matter who’s the nicest
Who’s alive, who’s gonna live to see their life
Hopefully me, my lifeline a MC
Extends past paying dues how much it cost to be free
Deep-rooted underground, but on the surface a tree
Branchin out, all I ever really wanted to be

They want to put us in a box, and then pack it away
But we ain’t havin that, no pause, no which way
Yo I’m goin to the top and that’s where I stay
Fuck the middle ground, poor, gettin biz while you was sittin down
The joint sound hittin now, freestyle’a written down
Your flow’s played out money you need to get that shit a style
Speedy on the quick fast, long term we make it last
Forever and a day stay clear on the path cause yo

Substance, blessin it
Yes I am, blessin it
UV for life, hell yes we stay blessin it
Pase on, blessin it
Yes I stay blessin it
Five Deez forever you know we stay blessin it

Children of the sun look out here we come
Live in Brooklyn, Maryland’s where I’m from
The beat don’t stop, ‘til you’ve had enough
Five Deez, UV, connect that’s what’s up
Children of the sun watch out we comin for ya
Rockin from the ‘natti mid-west to California
And it don’t stop even when you’ve had enough
Pase and Substantial dude that’s what’s up
Blessin it, effortless
Testin this, doubt it
Mic specialist son, we have events crowded
As nice as you wish you were
Good mics are my signature
I thought you said this shit is hot
It’s barely room temperature
We scorch it, we torturing cats from Cincinatti to New York
And back, word to Pat, don’t say jack
When we bankrupt your crew from spinnin the wheel of fortune, black
We take you there and send you walkin back

Substance, blessin it
Yes I am, blessin it
UV for life, hell yes we stay blessin it
Pase on, blessin it
Yes I stay blessin it
Five Deez forever you know we stay blessin it

Metaphorical Music by Nujabes was his first solo album. Though there are many contributing artists such as SHING02, Cise Starr, Substantial, and Five Deez, the album is still considered instrumental. It was very well received by fans and critics, many claiming it to be a masterpiece and groundbreaking in the hip hop scene. Nujabes’ unique style combines hip hop with jazz. Following the album, he worked on both soundtracks for the anime Samurai Champloo. He has inspired many artists including Marcus D and SHING02. On February 26, 2010, he was killed in a car accident.
On a more personal note. In my teen years, I had lost my love for hip hop. I found it to be uninspiring, cheap and dull. It had lost its real feel and seemed to be about “bitches, money and clubs”. In 2006, I came across this album and completely fell in love with it. The music, the lyrics, the feel to it, I had never heard anything like it. It inspired me and, though it may sound cheesy, it enhanced my emotions. I hope everyone enjoys the album as much as I do.

Hail to the Thief (The Gloaming) by Radiohead comes to an end. Glad to see some Radiohead fans out there. Hope everyone else enjoyed the album as much as I do. The album is not available for free legal download but can be bought wherever you buy your music online. If you can find it at a record store, buy it there instead because there’s nothing like owning a physical copy. Not only that but record stores aren’t as abundant as they once were. Support your local record store! New album starts next!

"Wolf at the Door (It Girl. Rag Doll)" by Radiohead


Drag him out your window
Dragging out your dead
Singing I miss you
Snakes and ladders
Flip the lid
Out pops the cracker
Smacks you in the head
Knifes you in the neck
Kicks you in the teeth
Steel toe caps
Takes all your credit cards
Get up get the gunge
Get the eggs
Get the flan in the face
The flan in the face
The flan in the face
Dance you fucker dance you fucker
Don’t you dare
Don’t you dare
Don’t you flan in the face
Take it with the love is given
Take it with a pinch of salt
Take it to the taxman
Let me back let me back
I promise to be good
Don’t look in the mirror
At the face you don’t recognize
Help me call the doctor
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
I keep the wolf from the door
But he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he’s gonna mess me up
Steal all my children
If I don’t pay the ransom
But I’ll never see them again
If I squeal to the cops
No no no no no no no:
Walking like giant cranes ah
With my x ray eyes i strip you naked
In a tight little world and why are you on the list?
Stepford wives who are we to complain?
Investments and dealers investments and dealers
Cold wives and mistresses
Cold wives and sunday papers.
City boys in first class
Don’t know we’re born little
Someone else is gonna come and clean it up
Born and raised for the job
Someone else always does
I wish you’d get up get over get up get over
Turn the tape off.
I keep the wolf from the door
But he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he’s gonna mess me up
Steal all my children
If I don’t pay the ransom
But I’ll never see them again
If I squeal to the cops
So I’m just gonna’

"Scatterbrain (As Dead As Leaves)" by Radiohead


I’m walking out in a force ten gale
Birds thrown around, bullets for hail
The roof is pulling off by its fingernails
Your voice is rattlin’ on my window sill
Yesterday’s headlines blown by the wind
Yesterday’s people end up scatterbrain
Any fool can easy pick a hole I only wish I could fall in
A moving target in a firing range
Somewhere I’m not
Scatterbrain
Somewhere I’m not
Scatterbrain
Lightning fuse, powercut
Scatterbrain

"Myxomatosis (Judge, Jury & Executioner)" by Radiohead


The mongrel cat came home
Holding half a head
Proceeded to show it off
To all his new found friends
He said I been where I liked
I slept with who I like
She ate me up for breakfast
She screwed me in a vice
But now
I don’t know why
I feel so tongue-tied
I sat in the cupboard
And wrote it down real neat
They were cheering and waving
Cheering and waving
Twitching and salivating like with myxomatosis
But it got edited fucked up
Strangled beaten up
Used in a photo in time magazine
Buried in a burning black hole in devon
I don’t know why I feel so tongue-tied
Don’t know why
I feel
So skinned alive.
My thoughts are misguided and a little naive
I twitch and I salivate like with myxomatosis
You should put me in a home or you should put me down
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis
Yeah no one likes a smart ass but we all like stars
But that wasn’t my intention, I did it for a reason
It must have got mixed up
Strangled beaten up
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis
I don’t know why I
Feel so tongue-tied

"A Punch Up at a Wedding (No No No No No No No No)" by Radiohead


No
I don’t know why you bother
Nothing’s ever good enough for you.
(By the way) I was there and it wasn’t like that.
You’ve come here just to start a fight
You had to piss on our parade
You had to shred our big day
You had to ruin it for all concerned
In a drunken punch-up at a wedding
Yeah
Hypocrite opportunist
Don’t infect me with your poison
A bull in a china shop
When I turn ‘round you stay frozen to the spot
You had the pointless snide remarks
Of hammerheaded sharks
The pot will call the kettle black
It’s a drunken punch-up at a wedding yeah
Oh no no

"I Will (No Man’s Land)" by Radiohead

I will
Lay me down
In a bunker
Underground
I won’t let this happen to my children
Meet the real world coming out of your shell
With white elephants
Sitting ducks
I will
rise up
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes

"There, There (The Boney Kind of Nowhere)" by Radiohead


In pitch dark I go walking in your landscape
Broken branches trip me as I speak
Just cause you feel it doesn’t mean it’s there
Just cause you feel it doesn’t mean it’s there
There’s always a siren singing you to shipwreck (don’t reach out, don’t reach out)
Steer away from these rocks we’d be a walking disaster (don’t reach out, don’t reach out [x2])
Just cause you feel it doesn’t mean it’s there (there’s someone on your shoulder)
Just cuz you feel it doesn’t mean it’s there (there’s someone on your shoulder)
There there…
Why so green
And lonely
Heaven sent you
To me
We are accidents waiting
Waiting to happen
We are accidents waiting
Waiting to happen
