Track Name: Hello
Hello, my name Raashan Crown City b-boy
tryna get fame like Leroy, the art of rap construct
recluse down in dirt and muck
breathing smog and filth man I’m just living

Hello, I stay in my room closing the doors
Writing rhymes that’ll hopefully reach to yours
With the beat in my headphones breaking my dome
And it’s breaking my heart man I’m loving this art

Hello, I take it too serious sometimes
Drop a tear lose my mind when I hear that rhyme
Wanna drive real fast when the beat’s on smash
Zoning out of my mind til’ I almost crash

Hello, put it together man it’s easing my brain
Take a pen take aim write away the pain
No rent no sickness no rich no poor
No bitches no niggas no cops no war

Hello, I’m sick of giving half asses the time
Who wanna talk business instead of writing a rhyme
Or just dancing the dance, or just cutting the cut
Or promoting the show ya’ll leeches you suck

Hello, can we get a real hip-hop show
Where people dance to the music not just watching the flow
Where the bouncers don’t ego trip,
d.j’s spin b-sides, and brown people support the vibe

Hello, I want your ear from the suburb block
To the hard rock who tote glock and lick shots
The music wasn’t made just for one type of person
That’s the record business tryna keep the diversion

Hello, and right here yo I’m talking to me
I’m bout’ a week away from throwing away my t.v.
Mute and watch the videos what do you see
On the news the suspect always looks like me

Hello, my name Raashan just your local m.c.
Steady mobbin on the planet til’ the day that I’m free
Build with fellow travelers the way that it go
Assalamu alaikum, greetings, Buenos dias, hello………..Hello.
