Rhime Divine – Media Shower

Intro: Ted James

This is an underground show
Get low to the floor, Baby Doll, touch your toes
Got ambitions, let ’em go, don’t you know
This is a Rhime Divine track
All my soldiers in the back with a sack
Roll a batch, strike a match and unlatch to this rap…

Verse One: Ted James

Kurt Cobain, ain’t nothing changed but the numbers on the range
Got a gauge full of rage and I’m popping it on stage
Don’t be amazed just be afraid I didn’t make it through this phase
I’m on a page where I’m displaced like a Saddam in a cage
You feel the craze, you feel the heat like in a daze, you feel the beat
But can you dig it like grave, can you feel the fucking street
Up on your feet, rebel people, it’s time to begin
This ain’t the hotel suite, this ain’t the Holiday Inn
This the been forgot spot where 2Pac got hot
In the zone straight thuggin’ on the motherfuckin’ block
Tick tock in the drop with the gun cocked
Staring down a cop, open up shop, let them burners rock
Let the thunder roll, let the lighting strike, let me rip the mic
Let me hold your soul, it’s going down tonight
Light the peace pipe, grip your freedom tight
Let the sky drop showers on the hype ’till we shut it down right
It’s a fight doing music that can make the crowd loose it
Bringing true shit hard and ruthless with no capital to move it
The FCC just won’t approve it so radio won’t let it spin
But since the public can’t refuse it, we on the FBI’s Top Ten
The kicked the Patriot Act in to get us up in the pen
Rhime Divine been burning bushes since way back when
The Public En – next of kin – with some Rakim mixed in
We make the goddamn music to get you tripping again

Graffiti Radio Live! Interlude: D-Wattz and Ted James

What’s up, it’s the underground radio show live. We in San Antonio.
Let’s talk about revolutionary music and why it doesn’t get exposed. [D-Wattz]
Music is money and money is music. [Ted James]
It’s a product, man, it’s not a fucking art form anymore.
That’s something that has to be changed, man, and that’s what we doing. [D-Wattz]
Yeah. [Ted James]

Bridge: D-Wattz

Can you see the shooting stars ’cause the gunning
Break ground by the dozen, can you hear the gat humming
Soldiers march, the underground sound drumming
Embrace the media shower ’cause it’s coming, coming, coming (repeat)

Verse Two: D-Wattz

Blau, stream it live, turn your set up loud
Ignite the datasphere like waves but downloaded through clouds
It’s like a missing murder witness testimony by sound
That spreads out, no doubt, by word of mouth through the underground
Hip hop phenomenon, new age communicator
Youth yelling truth against the lies in the news today
But most are stuck in a box of pimp daddies
We can’t get attention for you to pay, hey
This is the last call for scientific rap like the Big Bang
Competing vaccines fiber-scanning your sick brain
Chromosome of rations televised through the pigs vein
Passively excusing all corruption and real pain
They engineer consent, selling sex to the world
With strict diets of pop culture, puppeteering eternal
Another propaganda journal cut straight from the kernel
Leaves you distracted and inadequate to notice the murals
But yo, it never dies, you can be it, you can see it consumed
It survives, multiplies, stored away and resume
So until the media destroys who’s owning the truth
Re-force your eyes on graffiti, strict escapism new
‘Cause your favorite rappers turned bitch and just threw in the towel
Lap dog is in a niche for Clear Channel, Michael Powell
We circumvent your towers, rip and flip the underground
The mainstream powers with shooting stars creates the media shower

Grafitti Radio Live! Outro: D-Wattz and Ted James

But that shit is never going to get exposure on the corporate radio station. [D-Wattz]
98.5 The Beat, if you listen to that your silly. [Ted James]
Their playlist is sanctioned by big record labels.
Knowing that it’s going to get bought. [D-Wattz]
Check it, dawg. Y’all got the fucking technology now, bro.
All you gotta get is a computer and a modem…
Tune in to the real shit. [Ted James]

D-Wattz) Verse One: Nick Jones Everybody got a dream that they trying to chase But it seems to never catch it when it’s right in their face You just settle for less, afraid to take the chance To be something great, instead of living a sham I understand chasing a dream can be a risk But living is a risk so you gotta…

City of the Year – That was freaking insane. (No, I’m not talking about President Trump firing F.B.I. Director James Comey on Tuesday. While that was the desperate attempt of an unstable leader to cover up the high crimes and misdemeanors that could prove his illegitimacy and was unquestionably insane, luckily for the former reality show star who currently occupies the White House, this is a basketball blog series so,…

Pale Blue Dot

Written on:January 20, 2017

In an effort to add some context to a troubling day, theLeftAhead turns our thoughts to the incomparable Carl Sagan. In a public lecture at Cornell University in 1994, Sagan presented a photograph of planet Earth titled “Pale Blue Dot” that was taken on Valentine’s Day 1990 by the Voyager 1 space probe. He then delivered a brilliant, poetic speech about the photograph’s deeper meaning. For those of us who…

Take the Power Back – I’d never spent that much time thinking about it. I never really needed to. His performance was too consistent, his presence too permanent. Few things in life were as reliable. Tim Duncan was the San Antonio Spurs and the San Antonio Spurs were Tim Duncan. It sounds so simple yet it’s the simplest things that are the easiest to take for granted. Sure, the unthinkable…

These Moments

Written on:August 27, 2015

For Brian I guess these moments are painful now Eyes watered in these moments now Like chopping onions in these moments now In these moments now, it burns. Our bond reverberates endlessly in the echoes of Expand Your Mind Déjà vu bottled and stored like vintage wine in a cellar of souls Aged in inferno, climate controlled to blister and scar the skin With every instinct beckoning to leave, it…

Rhime Divine – Expand Your Mind

Written on:November 2, 2014

Artist’s Note: It seemed like the game was rigged. We were young, frustrated, creative, agitated, innovative, irrational, and determined. We were more energy than knowledge but that was a good thing. Fearlessness emboldened us to dare. We perceived evil in the world and we knew we needed an outlet to resist it. We reached new depths of cynicism but dug underneath looking for something pure. We weren’t necessarily searching for…

Sixteen Down

Wish You Were Here – I clutched the rose on my necklace and peered blankly at the television screen. Moments earlier, I had been standing with my wife, Jenn, in the center of the living room. After screaming, receiving a spectacular hug and then exhaling when it finally happened, I subsequently retreated to the couch and sat down utterly exhausted. I couldn’t move. I quickly realized that my momentary euphoria…

Juicy – It was all a dream… All thirteen players that suited up for the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the 2014 NBA Finals dotted the box score with at least two points. Yes, thirteen players scored for one team in an NBA Finals game. This has never happened before. The NBA expanded the active roster for an NBA game from 12 to 13 players during the lockout-shortened…

City of Blinding Lights – It has been quite a long time since the San Antonio Spurs have had a superstar basketball player on our roster who was born on the American mainland. 29 years to be exact. “How could this be?” you ask. Well, Tony Parker obviously doesn’t fit that criteria. He was born in Bruges, Belgium on May 17, 1982. Manu Ginobili obviously doesn’t fit the criteria either….

Here Now – It was a devastating way to lose the NBA Finals. When you’re up three games to two and you have a lead on the road in the last minute of the fourth quarter of Game 6, you have the trophy so close within reach that you can almost scape a fingernail on it. Even though no lead is ever safe in the NBA, the reason why you…

B.O.B. – When the hip hop duo, OutKast, released their debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, on April 26, 1994, Tim Duncan had just wrapped up his freshman season at Wake Forest. Fast forward twenty years and OutKast is the most buzzed about act on this year’s summer music festival circuit and Tim Duncan is making his twentieth appearance in the NCAA or NBA postseason. In the past 20 years, OutKast has sold…

Wild International – The San Antonio Spurs organization should strongly consider sending a case of HEB salsas to Paul Pierce of the Brooklyn Nets, as a small token of our appreciation.
