about

“The Snapback”, the first single since his debut solo album “For My People”. The highly anticipated single arrives with a much lighter feel than his previous work and continues the ongoing collaboration with music producer Abdias Ernesto Garcia.

“The Snapback is a personal account about the simple and uncontrollable nature of the creative process” says the young artist. The songs simple approach lends itself to delivering a solid performance that will surely become a gem in the ever changing game of Hip Hop.

lyrics

The Snapback (Lyrics)

food in my belly
cloths on my back
wrote a little medley
scribbled on a pad
ive been rocksteady
on the beat and path
when my hearts heavy
the remedy is rap

guess im being heady
after multiple drafts
dream up a melody
wake up at the crack
as mellow as can be
i take it to the rack
im just getting ready
so i fire up the track

popping off tags
as i throw on my swag
with my Taca snapback
and my apogee mac
talk about commitment
and the need to bootstrap
talk about consistency
the balancing act

im a lyrical acrobat
flip a few syllables
skip the death trap
finish with combo
like in Mortal Kombat
its the mighty Montune
and not the abstract

2X
food in my belly
cloths on my back
wrote a little medley
scribbled on a pad
ive been rocksteady
on the beat and path
when my hearts heavy
the remedy is rap

fundamentally
we find ways to adapt
loop the instrumental
lose yourself when the slap
of the snare as it cracks
in my lair when i lay down
my bad, dazed in the lab

U V rays
in the middle of day
ozone on the map
yo whats the word play?
en mi zona on the low
on the 408
its the 407
so i know you can relate

thats twenty four seven
life around my way
on the eastside of town
putting food on your plate
think bigger than the sound
so it resonates deep
within communities
and create opportunity

focus on beauty
and learn from the pain
lets work on unity
and bring about change
contribute to the movement
and eradicate hate

2X
food in my belly
cloths on my back
wrote a little medley
scribbled on a pad
ive been rocksteady
on the beat and path
when my hearts heavy
the remedy is rap

12 O'Clock on dot
just a snap shot
living on the spot
im on the blacktop
make it universal
rehearsal at the skate shop
when you get the muse
put it in a head lock

then chuck a deuce
im setting up a leg drop
down to my shell toes
im down for the co-op
nothing like home grown
the cream of the crop
thinking out the box
esto es puro hip-hop

1X
food in my belly
cloths on my back
wrote a little medley
scribbled on a pad
ive been rocksteady
on the beat and path
when my hearts heavy
the remedy is rap
