We Need It


I called up Maxime Robin and asked him if he had any cloudy beats.
He sent me a crateful.

I wrote narration raps over some of the beats.
It came out in english, my mother tongue.

Maxime mixed it all up.

Thanks for listening,

Track Name: A Good Friend
Sick if preachers, sick of Moses,
No doors to break down it’s open
No mountain, no tablets:
There are only habits.
Are you satisfied yet
With how many good answers you get?
Questions to each other
Remain unanswered.
I did not write this like my thesis,
Lauryn Hill get over it.
If my teacher sees this,
He won’t see kosher shit!
I treat this like a good friend
See them often, laugh and lend
A helping hand :
Treat your work like you’d like to be treated.
Too many thinkers think alike
Some beacons do remain unaligned
Kindness drips towards inside
To places yet unseen.
Too many things
For no reason being said.
Too many human beings
Satisfied with what they’re fed.

Too many rappers
And way too few poets.
Too many newspapers
Too few classics.
Too many bucket lists
For one or two crazy trips,
Way too much emphasis
Put on passing useless tests.
There are no second chances
At intercepting fresh glances;
Borderline romances
Are the only kind.
I can’t hear what you’re saying :
I’m busy helping out the hostess.
It’s not a popularity contest.
To be honest, we’re all blind.
Track Name: Taking Control
Don't stop me now?
I don't know how!
Far away from the crowd,
We've found our place.
To those screaming, I ask :
Who is hearing?
All left is feeling
We know our place.
Time running faster,
My hands disbanding anger
Two rights aren't an answer
Celebrate and sing!
Timeless gaps - where we relax
I'm getting fat, but who is counting?
This heart of mine shines through the windows
In the life we chose
Both friends and foes.
They shine their crowns
But no one listens
Secrets remain hidden
To those trapped in missions.
The light gets dim
But I think of them
One taken on the chin
Will likely bring a friend.
Lend a helping hand
Most often unseen;
Those in the sand :
Keep mindful of the dirt.

J-Robin :
Taking control of the airwaves.
Taking control of the sea waves.
Any wave you got, we pretty much cover it.
