about

I met Uptown XO when he and his crew challenged me to a battle outside of Capital City Records in the early 2000's. We battled to a draw, and the mutual respect instilled in us that night carries on to this day.

Kokayi is one of my mentors from the DMV's legendary collective Freestyle Union. His talent as a musician goes far beyond his considerable skills as an MC, he is a Grammy nominated artist, and an awesome dad.

lyrics

Seez Mics:
I don’t wanna sit and stare at a spreadsheet
That is telling me humanity is dead meat
My kind of fun is solitary and stress free
Refilling the tank when my empathy is empty
Friends see it all- the good and the bad
So when I‘m bad at being good, it’s for the good of the math
Add the energy you have, put a foot on the path
Before judging another’s smile as too crooked to laugh
Mistook it for wrath, the lesson was one of benevolence
discovering elements
Of surprise, surprise- we’re all under development
Hate to say I told you so for the love of intelligence
None of it’s relevant, so listen up
We all drink the same water, just from different cups
A cigarette’s the only time I’m kissing butts
Cause I know my way around every nip and tuck, zip it shut

Uptown XO:
I don't wanna sit and stare at the city streets
I need a outlet ..a plug it's 10 degrees
My heart will freeze if I go below zero
So whenever I see doe I docie doe
Stability is required for manhood
Didn't understand the mechanics until I lifted up my damn hood
Fuck materialism that isn't him you or me
And killing your brother for nothing doesn't make you a G
I talk to God everyday he created you and me
The planets and stars are organized
Today I thought of lines to make
The sourt of lime
light to over ride
Any team I'm the coach of mine
Approach the mic with a cultured mind
Here to take the game into overtime
Like Jordan 23 or 45
With the truth I'm flashy
like Nas I'm nasty
I tell em perseverance what got me here when they ask me


Kokayi:
I don't wanna sit and stare at a sketched piece
Mugshot slug shots now he resting
Blood shot eye water no jet stream
The purge of further murder his mother utters the next thing
Jah bless em cuz he nah wan tessem (test em)
Now he peeking from the urn top a beech wood dresser but she preached good lessons
Yet he heed no warnings but got inspired by the choir every Sunday morning
Lawd (lord) please save em she beseeching
Betwixt her grieving amidst relieving
the third shift at the shipping and receiving
Juxtaposed to his growing greed and packages he stuck both his feet in
good til the product ain't a factor but his math was misleading
so his path lack the crumbs of bread to lead em back now she howling at the sky with a tear stuck to her lashes
a quarter moon amidst the stars as the waves keep crashing, so...
