Treasure Island

(3-5-93 / Oakland, Ca)

state of the arts

Bare with me as we see California My way
I am from cali where
we got rappers poets sculputers artist.
I been raised here to express myself
I been in the bay swapping lines with the poets in oakland
chillen with the rappers they blowing me away with they smooth
We dont get known because are styles are different
I went to LA get see that fame and the actors
they taught me life is hard so you be harder
I live in the state where we going through things but that aint stopping us artist
If Jay has Empire State of mind
Then i got Cali state of the arts
Ima heere to stay that Hollywood can fame you but at a cost
its a dirty business
I went down to san jose to chill with the artist as they paint my verbs with bright colors and shaded my words
we got gifts here and we help our fellow man/women
Ima from the state of the arts
so come live my life

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
