Beezy had good things to say about Oddisee’s latest album “People Hear What They See”. I still need to listen to it myself. This is a nice record with Olivier Daysoul on vocals who is pretty dope himself.
You were there from the start/ taught me to be aware of the sharks & prepare for the dark/ you kept a secret you practiced what you were preaching against/ your inner demons were praying I would tear apart/ you won’t admit but you competed just a little a bit/ I could tell cause you’d be heated over little sh*t/ telling me to quit trying & get real/ I got a little shine you was like big deal/ I was pursuing dreams, steady doin my thing/ you wasn’t doing the same you wasn’t doing a thing/ from my truest to a brutes to a judas/ to who knew that this would happen/ but the fraction was brewing it seems/ I should have seen, mistaking smoke for a little steam/ it turned to fire you burned me hoping to ruin me/ I won’t even mention your name in the bars, it’s too close to the scars/ but I’m sure n*gga you know who you are/
You Know Who You Are
You were there from the start/ you told me what ever I’m doing to do it from the heart/ I was pursuing a dream that was cloaked in the cloth of the uncertain/ making money music & art/ and it wasn’t perfect/ you told me what ever’s worth it is worth hurting/ double edge seemingly sharp, rather unnerving/ but still, you believed in a brother/ I was starving as an artist, you was feeding a brother/ you could see in a brother what I couldn’t see myself/ when couldn’t see myself needing help/ one reason or another I was trying to do it all/ there’s allot of ways to fail but that’s the fastest to the fall/ but through it and after all you was with me not against/ you cheered me from the bench/ and now you’re with me as I ball/ and that meant, I ain’t got to mention your name in bars/ you know you’re close to my heart/ so I’m sure that/
You were there from the start/ before you were even aware of a plan you part/ of the scheme, grand as it could seem at the top/ man can only go so high before you reached where we can’t breath/ but you know your limitations you walk patient/ while everybody starts to run for their plan B/ like a fire escape, but you stay in the kitchen/ let them sleep on their dreams, you just lying awake/ you stay eyeing the cake, they getting greedy/ and then they turn their side against you like their getting sleepy/ try to prevent you cause you ain’t too what they bout/ get in your mental convince you to take the way out/ please, let them try, let the me fail/ let them tell lies on you let them be/ let them see you prevail/ let them bail on their attempt to stunt a star/ in any event be sure that you know who you are.
