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
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
