Track Name: 02 -SUN BLOOM
SUN BLOOM
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol. 1
by L. Scatter



Palm trees upon these soils labeled domestic
sway semi-silently save no trace of hectic
hustle, tectonic muscle movement majestic
earth movin rhythm exposed when I projected
sounds that be quaking the ground vibration penetrates
souls of those makin the sound that motion imitates
no limit, then it breaks a barrier unheard of
divisions are hidden like gettin hate when you preferred love
equal and opposite when opposites are equalized
like the sounds through the board that which we provide
record onto tape and then modify, I know a lot have tried
to duplicate complexities of life as trife as it gets but bet
we bring good things to life like marionettes or
general electrical charge in effect it’s still
larger than life sound and motion are a spectacle

they consume and wanna produce like in the womb
sound and motion combination makin the sun bloom
they consume and wanna produce like in the womb
sound and motion combination I’m makin the sun bloom
Track Name: 03 - BROWN HALO
BROWN HALO
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol. 1

Brown halo, setting of the sun, slow cooked process
rotisserie runs, rotational with the gravitational one
electromagnetic interference can stun this
population of technological innovation
with no cessation in fact it’s acceleration
is unchecked unmatched and indirect
by-productive ‘cause greed is in effect
make ends meet, or take ends street by street
til you stack up enough so you can eat
it’s all a hustle, whether monetary or muscle
means to an end and in the end they lust still
and must kill, so they can make it
body clothed in the best but their souls laid naked
like you got a bad feeling and couldn’t shake it
‘cause you had the worst thirst and couldn’t slake it under a
Brown halo, ring around the righteous
chokehold increasing the grip like seven vices
each day of the week, makin sacrifices
compromise callin collect payin the prices
1-800- WHY-HATE unin-
habited individuals who keep the runnin
pace and the space limitations a waste
instead of racin into space you should check out the base
ground control to major tom, major problems
plague the afraid to face them like hobgoblins
and God’s watchin but we don’t know what he thinks so
we speculate on whether or not we’re on the brink of
disaster, let me ask you a question,
do you make your own path or is everything pre-destined?
you might let the inquiry injure the
mentality force reality to set you free under a
Brown Halo ring around the righteous
Brown Halo setting of the sun
Brown Halo ring around the righteous
Brown Halo Brown Halo Brown Halo
Track Name: 04 - GROOVE RIDE SMOOTHER
GROOVE RIDE SMOOTHER
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape

It may behoove you to move with rhythm and found grooves
in the night if it’s hype or mellow the sound soothes
speakers reverberate when the plate moves
under the stylus the style is simple and straight smooth
and the crinkle of breaks prove that the
static could just add the magic that synths lose
and just like the hatchet that splits crews
the divide between live and electro I find grew
the vinyl or the records, the records I dig through
with reckless abandon I jam in a big stew (mixed!)
resulting in tracks to spit to
whether versed or just top of the head to get you, my
mission is the compositions I let flew
whether tracks to relax or rhythms to sweat to
back to the axe and grindstone to cool
hack on the stacks of vinyl I’m gonna do

so can I get a handclap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
can I get a ‘clap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?

It never died, the vibe survives where I reside
outside the lies applied to blindside
where the Cyclops can co-op your Hip Hop
and wrap a slipknot ‘round your neck like a sick cop
as you stand there, frozen like a mannequin
in the land of the blind it seems the one-eyed man is king
but despite that, you fight that sight back
and have a good time, for tomorrow you’ll be right back
in reality dealin with your tragedies
but tonight spark a light down a brew and think casually
get on the floor and get bizarre epileptic
but don’t electric slide but get by on some next shit
with a b-boy/b-girl effervescence
back to the essence, magnificence manifestin
I’m missin this as a presence in prisons of pretense it’s
pretend things are right, just tonight in consensus.

so can I get a handclap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
can I get a clap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
Track Name: 05 - BREAKIN A SWEAT
BREAKIN A SWEAT
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol. 1


Overcast is over fast, caught breakfast the next graph
for us to transpose is school direct path to let that
trip over be soon, minutes made or minutes wasted
in the halls of buffoons, wish to consume victory taste it
in the sky with blue moons, not so often that I crave it
it’ll be over soon info’s free, books have enslaved it
on the mic I’ve cocooned with the hope I might escape it
and people think I’m a loon, but fuck people, cause I can make it
creature in the lagoon, no mans an island so I’m filing for
financial aid boon, with the solace that I’m rhymin
and the rhymin’s in tune with my aura and my feelings
later for makin dubloons, ducats and shillings for a killin’

why am I, breakin a sweat
work smarter not just harder if you’re breakin a sweat
and smoke some arbor by the harbor if you’re breakin a sweat
‘cause what they charge for livin large got suckaz breakin their necks…
Track Name: 06 - I GOTTA LOVE
I GOTTA LOVE
BY L.SCATTER

NEAR THE END OF 97 ALMOST 1998
IN THE SMALL AUDITORIUM, LONG BEACH CAL STATE
UNIVERSITY, DIVERSITY WAS CERTAINLY HAPPENIN
AND YOU COULD SEE THAT REFLECTED BY THE PEOPLE THAT’S RAPPIN
ON THE STAGE IN THE THEATER, BLAZED OUT AND BEING THE
BEST EMCEE THAT I COULD BE SO THAT EVEN THE
CROWD WOULD RECOGNIZE AND I’M CHECKIN SETS OF EYES
‘CAUSE I ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH EVERYONE INSIDE
THERE WERE A PAIR OF FEMALE PEOPLE NEAR THE FRONT ROW
WHO CLEARLY APPRECIATED ALL THESE PERFORMERS AT ONE SHOW
YOU HAD HOMEMADE GRAVY, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, THE BLACK WHOLE
AND ME THE SCATTER B. JERN ONE AND MINO
WE WERE THE MINDTRAP AND WE CHANGED OUR MINDS BACK WHEN
WE WERE EVOLVING OUR IDENTITIES AND RHYMES BACK THEN
LOVE IS BLIND BAT MEN I SMILED SHE SMILED BACK AND
IT WOULD LEAD TO ASIATIC DRAGONFLY ACTION

MONTHS PASS BY BUT 98 IS STILL THE YEAR THOUGH
I’M KINDA USED TO PEOPLE LOOKIN AT ME LIKE A WEIRDO
I’M AT A CLUB ON SANTA MONICA THURSDAY NIGHT REWIND (LEGEND!)
HAD MORE THAN A FEW DRINKS BUT NOT EXCESSIVE, I’M A BE FINE
HOOKED ON CIGARETTES, TO THE PATIO MADE A BEELINE
IMPOSED ON THE CHAIR OF A GIRL AND THOUGHT “AYO SHE FINE”
CONVERSATION WAS A MATCH STRUCK UP IN FLASHES AND
SHE ASKED ME IF I WAS FROM “MINDTRAP” I STARTED LAUGHIN AND
I MADE HER FEEL UNEASY, BECAUSE ME AND RED CLEEZY,
AND JERN WERE TALKIN ABOUT CHAGIN THE NAME OVER A BIDI
WE HAD USED IT FOR THAT ONE SHOW QUOTIN ORGANIZED KONFUSION
BRING IT ON MUTHAFUCKA BRING IT ON THAT’S WHAT WE’D DO THEN
AND SO I BROUGHT IT ON AS SUCH A CHARMING RAPPER DO
SHE INVITED US TO DENNY’S ON SUNSET FOR SOME CLUB AFTERFOOD
SMOTHERED HASH BROWNS AND COFFEE MADE MY APPETITE
SHE HAD A GRILLED CHEESE WITH TOMATO AND A SIDE OF RANCH THAT NIGHT

YEARS GO PAST, THE HAPPINESS AND UPS AND DOWNS AND
MIDDLE GROUND AND DISCONTENT THAT JUST SEEMS TO SURROUND THEM
THE DISTRUST AND DISGUST AND THIS JUST ASTOUNDS THEM
AND DUMBFOUNDS THEM, LOVE LEFT FOR THE UNDERGROUND THEN
AND THE CROWNIN ACHIEVEMENT OR CHERRY ON TOP
WAS GETTING MARRIED BY SHOTGUN, A NEFARIOUS PLOT
TO SOME, IT CARRIES A LOT OF BAGGAGE
LOOKED AT AS A SAVAGE IN VARIOUS SPOTS
THIS GLADIATOR GOT HIS CHARIOT ROCKED
AND WILDIN OUT TO WHERE HE’D BURY HIS COCK DEEP INTO VARIOUS TWATS
VERY MERCENARY, DIRTY AS THE HARRIEST COP
I CALLAHANED IT TO HIM, YOU REALLY SERIOUS? STOP
BECAUSE CLEARLY YOU’VE GOT A WOMAN WORTHY OF PROPS
WHOSE LOVE ENDURED THROUGH HATE AND SEPARATION IT’S REALLY A LOT
TO COME BACK TO, AND THAT’S TRUE I FEEL THAT I OUGHT
TO LET THE WORLD KNOW, AS FAR AS GIRLS GO MY ‘CILLE IS THE TOP
I GOT A LOVE
Track Name: 07 - PANIC ATTACK featuring Lyraflip
PANIC ATTACK feat. LYRAFLIP
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol. 1
By L. Scatter and Lyraflip

Scatter: It was a panic attack another manic Monday
but I manage to rap and damage the track
the runway that I ravage is wax and amateurs lack
the advantage of the man that could smack
the competition into submission and then sandwich the wack
in a vice to squeeze tight, no room to breathe hyperventilate
and then makes you see light in a spectrum let them
see the disadvantages of being a rectum

Lyraflip: Uh, I think they lost, I’m a have to direct them
to the other side and I ain’t even leavin ‘em breadcrumbs
all on the floor follow your destiny get some
before you suffer you’ll get treated like a red-headed stepson
is what I told myself before it went downhill
the weight of the world on my shoulder felt like an anvil
was tryin to collapse on me, I’m letting the past haunt me
I’m panicking dammit I wish the man would back off me

Scatter: and keep the leashes on their dogs, and their firehoses off
and their mind control experiments that keep us in the smog
respiration is a privilege, not a right, it’s called the law
your life just gets adjusted, you don’t need to get involved

Lyraflip: but I’m a rebel with a cause, bangin heavy metal, no guitars
let the dust settle then I step in like I’m El DeBarge
I could see the future I don’t need no tarot cards
I don’t believe in that ‘cause mathematically the years are off
Track Name: 08 - BELIEVERS OF THE TRUE SCHOOL (RMX)
BELIEVERS OF THE TRUE SCHOOL
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol.1
by L. Scatter

True school renaissance spirit of old haunts
like L.Q. Bronx River and Radiotron
from Uncle Jam’s Army to Unity and the sponsor-
ship shouldn’t commercialize ‘cuz corporations will want
to milk it like they built it, but we know that the Bronx
is the birthplace of this culture in it’s previous forms
and it’s present and it’s future is dependent on con-
temporaries though we vary in the eeriest norms
but Hip Hop has no end to put a period on
just a run on sentence that we hear in a song and
if we leave it to viacom they’ll be steering us wrong
unless we detonate suddenly like mysterious bombs
check it, the mirror your on makes you tear in the pond
so when it’s clear and it’s warm, you’re still fearing the storm
‘cause there are four elements to gain experience on
True School B-Boy, I’m right here and it’s on
We’re the Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block
We’re the Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block

For the respect I get raw on a checkerboard floor
just an extention of skills, catch wreck and you all saw
‘rocks is on top, knee-drop to all fall
in the rhythm ‘cuz I’m givin’ my all so (Yes Y’all)
to the beat y’all, and it don’t stop ‘cuz the beat calls
the call of the styles appalling you while the feet fall
on linoleum, hardwood or concrete y’all
the same intensity as when I speak on the beats or
poking drum pads on my MPC pause
spin back to a backspin to a freeze or
flip up off the floor like a greaseball
sweatin beads more like buckshots spraying enemies more
I’m a see-saw quick to read y’all with the balance to defeat more
competitors like predators of retards
dual attack like you read cards,
breakin and rhymin the timings not too hard to keep on
six step to 2000 CC’s like 2 liter heaters
windmills in your face in space of millimeters
hard to sleep on, I got the Mic or the floor in my palm
word is bond flip the beat on that old
Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block

Track Name: 10 - HINDSIGHT
HINDSIGHT
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol. 1

It’s been a second since I last put paper to pen and I’m like the
Jigsaw killer with a pit and a pendulum
in the darkness I sparked this with a written agenda then to
Improvise live I’ve adopted right into the
repertoire, respected y’all, head noddin til your neck is sore
backbone like stegosaurs, check your local record stores
my vinyl’s a product of my spinal column
workin class work ethic and my mind’s evolving
maturation should match your patience
forever getting better, that’s what a master makes then
mad temptations and distractions snake in
a venomous mess like you was masturbatin on stage
the “yes yes” is the activation
of the power “to the beat y’all” a massive statement
and even if I’m one of the last to make it
retrospect’s focused so have to take it

In hindsight, I wouldn’t rhyme as tight
if I took the easy path with the blinding lights
‘cause my underground surroundings keep me shinin bright
as long as cadence, wordplay and my timings right
In hindsight, I wouldn’t rhyme as tight
if I took the easy path with the blinding lights
‘cause my underground surroundings keep me shinin bright
as long as cadence, wordplay and my timings right

I was at a crossroads although
don’t wanna play myself out, but want that tall dough also
I understand creative license, and the way that we’d be writin
but don’t ever want to come across as false, yo
I project it so you feel it in your torso
and see it in a vision as an Eloheim like Orko
it’s divine in it’s essence, and I’m finding my presence
while runnin through the obstacles that this course holds
Scatter’s not a vegetarian, no pork though
vegan dishes mixed with a potato ball from Porto’s
I stay genuine, even when makin Benjamins
while others are pretending, I’m rockin stages at more shows
transmittin spit like it’s morse code
mind over matter like use the force so
rhyming with Scatter is like a science experiment
in ocean environments circled by dorsals
and you’re only just a morsel
either that or end up washed up on the shore slow
‘cause my tidal wave of vinyl is historical
with Marvski in the mix with Scattergorical

In hindsight, I wouldn’t rhyme as tight
if I took the easy path with the blinding lights
‘cause my underground surroundings keep me shinin bright
as long as cadence, wordplay and my timings right
