Description
It has been too long since I've dropped a song here on the site. To be honest I have been almost completely occupied with work. I wish I had more time to check everyone out here, but hopefully if things go my way I will.

...Anyway...

This is another one of those songs I made on deployment, but never got around to finishing. The original beat was made overseas and the lyrics were written between there and back home. This song has gone through 3 different versions, and it wasn't until recently that I stripped the entire beat and made a new music bed altogether. I may post the other two versions on icomp or something, but for now enjoy the latest incarnation of this Jam.

Lyrics

verse 1
I've got a love for the life I lead
The life I chose;
The prose that I might compose
What I write in rows is like light to those
Within the dark when my mic explodes
Try to keep my actions positive despite the woes
Of these runway rappers trying to strike a pose
There's no telling what they might propose
In a Black made genre that is white controlled
But you wont see me shucking and jiving
Or barely surviving;
I'm trying my best to keep rising and prosper
My goal is to foster progress
We all get tested
And some get blessed with success and left with abundance among us to share the rest with
Those with less get assistance and new commitments for those who see the goal and want to go the distance.

chorus
Uh say what to the boogie to what to rock steady
To the beat bang over the drum
I said a like-to-like-to-like this
I said a like-to-like-to-like that
Sure shot on the rhythm I rock for ya'll
If you can't back the culture its not for ya'll
But if you are Hiphop mind, body, and soul then you know that we cannot be stopped at all

verse 2
If the truth hurts
does that make me a masochist because I want the truth first
Things are hard, but they can do worse
But despite that fact I do my best to bright the light with every new verse
Life is too short to dismiss reality
Or to get by on some technicality
I exist for my family
And the legacy I leave to contribute to humanity
Bringing order to calamity
Its like the entire world is on the brink of insanity
If its not the mistrust its the vanity
Or some complex to make the people panicky
You have to have faith in yourself
Awaken yourself
Stop taking yourself for granted
Realize you have the advantage
And endowed with the ability to manage

nice
love the scratching intro with the string stabs. great lyrics as always. the chorus is great, strange: more contemporary sounding/accessible than your other stuff. might just be the doubled vox; either way I like it a bunch. you never let down.

Something about the original beat brought the chorus about. Wow. Does this mean I'm ready to go mainstream...lol. Thanks for the comment and taking time to listen. Always appreciated.

Hello sir
Thanks for the kind words. I still think the original beat goes better with the chorus, however I haven't been a big fan of it. Glad you liked it.

On fire
Heya Mitch!! So good to hear from you again. It is interesting to hear an almost bipolar work (production wise). Produced/written over there and here certainly left marks. I am proud of the commercial approach you took, music wise but more over vocal wise. Maybe commercial is not the right word, I think you are getting more professional. Very good job. Marc

I always enjoy hearing your impressions of my music. I suppose I may be entering a different phase in my music progression or maybe I just got lucky this time. At any rate I feel great about being able to still make music. I have a few more tracks to release here, but I want to insure they are perfect. Thanks again for coming by to listen.

you pretty much single handedly won me over to rap. But, I think you are several cuts above the rest. And to think that you manage this quality writing and performance in your spare time from a demanding job....that is amazing. Thanks.

Hip-hop/rap
is/are genre/s that I don't normally enjoy much. The one exception over the years for me has been eminem. So - I really like this. You have a great voice Mitchell, and your phrasing is really good. Musical backing is excellent (although my 'phones found some of the sub bass pretty challenging) and the lyrics are thoughtful and interesting.
OK, so I like eminem AND spitlogic!

Me and eminem huh?
Ok. I think I can live with that (lol). I do think there are much better MCs than myself or eminem, but to be one of two that you listen to is a huge compliment.

Chorus was the easiest part to write, but the hardest part to perform. I recorded it 3 different times and had to make sure each take was together. Glad you enjoyed.

I really like the verses too!
Commenters keep focusing on the chorus, which is indeed cool, but I'm really liking your clear + present delivery on the verses. Great track!

is hot man.
Really cool stuff. Tight and clever. The rapping has an easy flow to it which I love.
Fan!!
spitlogic said 3103 days ago (October 26th, 2010)
Alright
Thank you. The original track was more laid back so I delivered it as such. I think if I made this beat first the delivery would have come out different, but the smoother delivery seemed to work.

Cool track. I dig the beat, the bass is super deep and the EQ overall sets a great space for all the pieces. My one crit point is that the reverb on the vox is a little clean/dry and separates the vox from the rest of the music a bit, a little more 'verb on the vox might tighten it up with the backing track a little better. Dug the lyrics. Good to have you back.

You made your bed…
… and then rapped over it. And then made the bed again...

Very nice! It would be interesting to hear those other versions too; maybe you could post them here?

I guess the thing that draws me in the most about this is the poetry; it makes me think about stuff, which seems to me to be exactly what poetry is supposed to do. The sound bed is good too; it draws me in right off the top, but it's the lyric that keeps me wanting to hear more. Fantastic.

crisp
A very cool and sparse bed. Love the vox, tight as usual: "Life is too short to dismiss reality, Or to get by on some technicality " excellent. The chorus is particularly groovin' on this track. At 3:11 it seems short (which is good, nothin worse than getting bored), could almost use a instrumental break or bridge in there maybe to break it up. Very cool.

love the scratching sounds at the beginning. that ride cymbal is a really nice touch too and the strings work great. Logic really made you sound that much better. no easy task considering you did such great stuff to begin with.

Spotlight on the Rap/Vox
Cool stuff. Love the clear and easy to understand rap. The sting hits are really nice. Chorus is very catchy. I wonder what this would sound like with a more orchestral string hit (more reverb and a wider stereo spread. Also the drum programming is cool. Would love to hear some more effected drums playing this same thing, would be an interesting contrast to the clear vocals.
