Yeah, another one coming at them Jonny

Manifesting my dope rhyme instantaneous yo

As we proceed "Operation Lock Down"
Straight as an arrow yo, in this scenario
Digi by design analog to Stereo
Because its the Soundsci Soundscientifical
Hit ya with the force yes like centrifugal
I'm on my own now, standing on my own two
Feet complete busting thru all the residue
And frustrations, obstacles, illusions
Going to for self now nothing to prove son
To anyone at anytime I rhyme
Best believe i achieve know the bottom line straight up..

Check,check,check out the melody
Audessey and JonnyCuba with the Remedy

Braincells busting, rhymes im touching
Pattern my flow and I'm going never rushing
Yes a rhyme maniac, beat buster a braniac

The fat lady singing, check the ill we bringing
The illy illnes for realness is what we feeling

Check,check,check out the melody
Audessey and JonnyCuba with the Remedy

Check,check,check out the melody
Audessey and JonnyCuba with the Remedy

So now you know..



Jonny's Production notes:

I had always wanted to hook this loop up since a friend hipped me to it years ago, the driving bass makes for a compelling listen. When I looked at the samples they really needed chopping to make the pocket deeper. When it came to arrangement the real task was to keep a 2 bar loop interesting over 3 minutes... Lots of dropouts!
This is the only track on the EP where I did the cuts. I felt others in the crew could rock it much harder on the turntables, need to sharpen those rusty skills.
Track Name: The Question feat U-George
(Announcer):Hear ye, Hear ye come one come all
Have a listen, check it out..


So What's the question ..Are you and emcee or a rapper?
Would you do it for the money or be like the Blast Master
KRS(ONE ) because Knowledge Reins Supreme
In a pool of other fishes trying to swim main stream
So What's the question yeah you gotta ask yourself
Would you do it for the love, no money, fame or wealth?
When your hiphip done flip flopped, flap, fluke and busted
You put your hammer pants on saying you can't touch this
But now your a gangster a hustler , a pusher
Carrying weight in 08 yo, nobody ever knew of ya
Stop ya lying, nobody's buying,
You're a too cool fool and nobody's smiling
Your facade and fakeness found in your imagery
With no substance cheerly just gimmickry
Video stage, turn the page the next chapter
Two for ya crew and gave us a good laugh
Keep it true might I add with the suggestion
,but on the real though I'm just saying...what the question.

(Announcer): And now ladies and gentlemen, for your listen pleasure and
Entertainment U-George

(U-George)

What's the question..Have you learned ya lesson to emcee
Hold the mic to gain entry in this fraternity
Step on stage spit right out the memory
With no page I battle enemies in front of me
Hmmm the ? mark remains emcees dissapear like they David Blaine
A mind freak, you so unique but you rhyme weak
Trust me, in a battle you turn the other cheek
I an't got swag I just got tag
On the wall where I played hand ball at
Block parties give me the mic I handle that
Little tike Puma sneaks with a Kangol hat
Now I'm waiting on your answer ya loving this art form
and for the industry your playing the part for
Dont get mad , just hit the pen and the pad
Go ahead ask your Dad (fool!!!)..What's the question!?

(Announcer): Yes, yes yes the question has been answered are you an emcee or are you a rapper? In today's day in time there is a difference....the question remains.


Jonny's production notes:

The hardest track to produce on the EP. The record the main sample comes from has vocals all over it, I had to slice tiny portions from many different parts of the tune to make the basic instrumental groove. I tried 3 or 4 times to get the heavily swung feel right. Ollie Teeba helped with the arrangement putting together the great outro.
Track Name: Lost and Found
Open your eyes you never know what you'll find
When you know what you're looking for
Open your eyes you never what you'll find
This is what you're looking for

I found music at the age of Eleven
Got that itch for a scrath every minute to the second
For that sound and (GET DOWN) a kid who had to have it
Bust a break to planet rock, FrankSki and Mr.Magic
98.7 Kiss I never missed
For that hiphop flavor that heavenily bliss
of that beat and a rhyme, to uplift a state of mind
The love for creation, music sensations
Tribe to Dela it was my Main Source
Never tried to fake the funk as it will put me off course
93 to infinity there was no end
With that Boom to the Bap,High to the Low End Theory
It made me feel the essence of the culture yes, that I felt what within me
That Hiphop music that is the guiding light
Shinning thru the underground and taking top flight.

Open your eyes you never know what you'll find
When you know what you're looking for
Open your eyes you never what you'll find
This is what you're looking for


It's the hiphop jump to the rhythm of the beat and
that vibe that provides to make it all sound complete'n
the universal nature bob your head and move your feet'n
Transmitted by me Audessey the emcee'n and what
its what your looking for the feel good music
Soulfully crafted, calculatedly math'd
Superbly put together classically and old fashion the hop
It don't stop and how we put it down
Dedicated ATL crews and the underground
Hey yo, who got it all together soul by the pound
and if you don't know world you need to check it now
Like the Tha F.E.M.C.E.E. - Stahhr and Binkis Recs
A-Yo Dres the Beatnik known to catch rec
But this is just a taste of the full course meal
Open your eyes discover you know the deal, for real
for real for real, for real...

Open your eyes you never know what you'll find
When you know what you're looking for
Open your eyes you never what you'll find
This is what you're looking for

Dedications....

Jonny's production notes:

Audessey came up with the basic track in the form of a loop & basic drums. I liked the melody but thought we could take the track further. I enlisted the help of a cat from D.C, 'Bozekitty'. He played some jazzy latin guitar on it & I just had to get live bass to add to the flow. Enter NoSleep Nigel our engineer & general 3rd ear. Nigel did a killer bassline that really bought the track together. I added drums, vibes & organ. just subtle touches.

Later we dubbed these players the 'Instant Messengers' they are our band in waiting.
Track Name: Knock Knock feat Therapy
(Audessey)

Well it’s the A what you say
Blessed to live another day
Got the word what’cha heard
Feel they rhyme you get served
From the source of an emcee older and more mature
Far from adolescence where the vision is obscured
I’m on a path and know the math to keep my money secure
I spit these bar of 16 on a vibe so pure
I got to let it go and let it flow my mind set to blow
Locked, cocked and ready put heads in the know
Do my business right for sure stack the dough
Cuz one never knows when its time to go
Well make the move show and prove my mind in the groove’n
Spark a brain cell and tell it just like the news
Not to mislead but feed minds yes the truth to get loose
The many heads that been abused
Cut the shackles and chains that traps the membrane
Like the Matix the game flips over and I say…

Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock, knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!

Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock; knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!

(Therapy)

I can’t trust myself
So how the f*ck can I trust you
I seen how lust
Can make a motherf*cker rush to
Forget how I crushed you
Head & Shoulders can’t clean as many skulls
As I brush through
I’m here to tell ya
Shawty how we do round here
(Introducing Therapy the Medicine Man…!)
I got some loose screws I hear
New attitude this year
Too many weak crews out here
I know its never you I fear
Cause I’m a known issue
Don’t let the wrong miscue
Get you blown into a tissue
(YEAH!!!!)
Now that’s your first clue
Knock, knock sucka n*gga
You don’t have to guess who…
Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock, knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!

Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock; knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!


(Audessey)

Yo, back on the scene long time no hear from
It’s a brother from Mitchell St. with something for ya eardrum
Still on solid ground and the quest for the sound
To create from the brakes from the crate we get down now
My mission is clear, to set it in your ear
To educate and entertain to make you shake your rear
Long gone is the day of living care free
Letting time tick by and I can see
It’s all what you make or waste it
I choose to create, in this moment given all that I say
With word, each verb, each noun, each adjective
The Rhyme complete verse done and I say ghost

One,two, three, four (You got to keep it moving, you gotta stay
Focused and you be prepared for what’s ahead)

Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock, knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!

Count them one, Count them two, Count them three, Count them four
Knock; knock Soundsci at your door with the rhyme time prime time
Doing it now ill mind specialized to make ya say Wow!


Jonny's production notes:
One of the 1st tracks we put together for the EP.
Track Name: Think feat Jax and Reality
(Audessey)

Well take the time out, and think out
Ya life where it's going what's all about
It's Aud, never the fraud no need for an applause
But I kick it and ask the question
Offer suggestions thru my trials and tribulations (Life Lessons)
Yes the ups and downs and highs and lows
Those things that keep ya illy that keep ya on ya toes
To make ya see life different and go uh,oh,oh yo!
I kick on the really really real
With the weight of the world on my shoulders and deal
Then grab the pen and pad and tell ya what I feel
constructed and produced it sign and sealed (you better think)
delivered (Ha!) best believe that is real
Because too many wonder, often just ponder
where they going, how they living and seem to fall under
the status quo, their thinking is in slow mo
Their mind is caught up in delusion yo I just say yo just think..
(you better think)

(Use that tool between your two shoulders)..

Just Think, come on think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it and be in it to win it

Just Think, come on think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it, do it,do it

(Jax)

I never thought that I would make bad moves
and I never thought that I wouldn't finish school (nah)
I guess that's what I get for thinking
Instead just doing while my hopes where shrinking
Jax had to expand the thought process
a plan, take a stand and give this man some more options
To play life with no pieces missing
Many of night you can catch me in a thinking position
Like hmmmmm, what next (whats next), what left to do in a world so complex
That when its broken down to a simpler form
You took time to think so you could weather any storm
That blows thru town, nothing holds you down but you
So rise up and become unstuck from the glue that keep you stagnated
Failure is a phrase that should be outdated I know I hated it
An escaped it on some burning building ,save a baby ,super power, and cape sh*t
Not just with the scheme I was doing (but remember) I was doing
One half is dreaming the other half is execution!

Just Think, come on think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it and be in it to win it

Just Think, come on think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it, do it, do it

(Reality)

Thru mind power, I shower and devour to the last hour
any coward destined to be flowered
With the lyrical strength and gift like Malcolm
I overstand keen with keen eyes like a falcon
That I'm one soul, eternal in existence
Trap in a world where hell is a life sentence
Beyond a shadow of death I vision guiding lights
I'm an angel with broken wings trying to take flight
Battling demons, DNA from my pops semen
Got me screaming Allah U Akbar when I see him
Supreme being you know the all eye seeing
Who gave breath for breathing and sin for the heathen
Now I'm beaming lay my body in a mausoleum
Death is only price for freedom
You can ask the slaves and the freedom fighters in they graves
In ancient Egypt they wrote it down in the caves..

Just Think, come think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it and be in it to win it

Just Think, come on think for second how the world revolves and how you fit in it
(Where ya see your self)
No time to be timid,
You just gotta just do it and be in it to win it and just think..

(You better Think)..




Audessey's Production notes:

Just a little something that I put together a while back. The interesting thing I guess for me here is that the effects on the vocal sample and the other noise was a sampled from the ASR10 and I flew them in and recorded them on the fly live. A nice head bopping beat as I liked to show some production versatility here on this song and with the talents of Jax and Reality on this song it really brought it all together in the end.
