The Timing Is Off / Trying To Get Back In Sync


Whats up? diplomatic immunity was revoked…I noticed the timing was off.. now were trying to get back in sync!

We dipped back to the community..jokers were acting brand new with me…some blame it on the Full Moon In Aries… or even the Uranus Pluto Square….but we continue to go there…but its like were on the Titanic about to sink!

Or maybe the Costa Concordia …..run for the border bruh!! its like Young Jeezy vs Rick Ross at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta… a fanatic was trying to flex!

Or like Ahmadinejad vs The UN…whats happening? Total Chaos was the business;  mathematics revealed it..now I’m saying damn!!  whats next?

Feeling The Energy / Something Ain't Right

Feeling the energy..... what will the deal be? "something ain't right" per Keith Sweat... morale was low;  plus the flow was lethargic! 

I mean really.....whats the deally? car bombs still blast in Iraq; in Kabul Afghan insiders continue to do that!! passes were thrown like Jim Zorn to Steve Largent! 

.....Seattle Seahawks ...now with Russell Wilson;  but some are through dealing...a brotha can see how this goes; I'm in the heart of it the hostile territory! 

DJ Drama hits you up with the drama at the BET Awards here in Atlanta...as Young Jeezy and Rick Ross go at it....meanwhile the beat and prose is delivered by this hot messenger; using a hot style to tell the story!

Feeling the energy....whats up with that? the full moon in Aries can make the drama come to your front door..what did jokers front for? some fell from glory..now they're in need of a hug! 

The devil will oppose per the old school Baptist preacher; reality will teach ya...now some are in need of a mug! 

.....a mug of beer or hot coffee; what are they on? getting off will be the mission!

....or finding a new drug ....like kratom to get their minds right;  maybe they can pay attention! 

....maybe they can pay their bill again to keep the energy flowing! 

LGE...Florida, Georgia or Duke Power..whoever; Louisville, Jacksonville, the ATL or Charlotte are knowing! 

They're feeling the energy....."something ain't right" ..things are depressing per homie; things are tight in these hoods! 

But we proceed and continue..were trying to comeback like Tiger Woods!

Exploitation PT.2

They brought the drama to your doorstep...it was like Republicans mad at Mitt Romney...what will the response be?  please ..I was chilling at the compound...but I even heard gunshots outback!

Whose chilling at the BET Awards? some people tried to get away ...now on I-285 in Atlanta caught in traffic behind the Subara Outback! 

Jokers exploit the situation...on a world tour or Award Tour per Tribe Called Quest?  riding down Peachtree Street smoking backwoods..as smoke drifts out of the Cadillac Escalade! 

Jackers exploit the situation....busters will get played...hustlers were in the old Cadillac Sedan Deville like the brothas in Louisville roll in....whatcha knowing? in the cut they laid..

Checked the economics....it reminded me of my peeps in Detroit that had the Caddie; its worth more than their raggedy house..so how is the game played? 

Hackers exploit the situation; what were they facing? they were caught up in the system / matrix...soon flipping out like James Holmes in Aurora after they found out about the illusion..the charade...

You'll get played...jokers exploit the situation... as they get theirs ...soon smashing and grabbing! 

Soon they'll fill the void....old dude told them to choose their poison; now some are snorting bath salts, smoking weed, and brown paper bagging! 

Some even tried the Kratom....meanwhile O-Zone is cutting and pasting..dropping and dragging this good word..exploiting the situation! 

Watch your mouth!! watch your tone!! I told Mitt Romney types boasting and bragging about 47 percenters..jokers will try to exploit a situation!

So whatcha facing? bumping heads with circumventers..contracts? they'll null and void them...

So whatcha facing? between spoiled ballots and Voter ID laws ...slick politicians exploit the situation..

Damn!! I keep dealing with these chefs in hell's kitchen preparing ill menus!

Or maybe like the Charlotte Observer vs Cam Newton.. acting like you knew...acting brand new again.....word from Maserati Rick?  I see zombies stalking about! 

So whats up with it? authorities were yellow crime scene taping it .....white chalking it out;  some were acting false in the hood..jokers were making a killing! 

Like Wall Street brokers...Bernie Madoff or Jim Donnan style ..with the Deliberate Falsehood...check out the shady dealing! 

New world order per Ahmadinejad? I told these actors and actresses to miss me with the drama...I'm sick of them! 

I'm all about this breakbeat scientific business...check the  knowledge I kick to them! 

A foul one will get slick with them...pepper spray them like students at UC Davis; who'll behave with this?  glitches in the matrix were introduced!

Some said its all love....now the saga /struggle continue as witches and warlocks seduced!

 O-Dizzle rocked beats are produced; O-Zone has the good word ...check out how we get down! 

Hustles are knocked in these streets...some are like Romney they talk the other way..plus sideways glances revealed how these folks get down!

Being built or torn down?  debatable circumstances have us wondering! 

As the saga / struggle continues...but we keep it moving; just like orbital / space junk through the universe were wandering!

Change Or Be Changed

What was the word on the curb? it was like Israel vs Iran...the prophetess said change or be changed! 

I'm ready to roll after I observed the scene; I noticed the cards had been shuffled by gamblers out for a fast buck...they were rolling like Village Voice Pimps...everything was on the backpage...its rearranged!

Oh yeah!!!! we're back...our minds are engaged..O-Dizzle's beats still banged...he gets down.....and this good word is dropped! 

Thought and fashion police were still rolling..Chris Brown knows; but some crooks were still a step ahead..they weren't caught when the bait was dropped!

Facebook's stock dropped...face to face with a crook? some stopped...others thought public education was a waste..they dropped out of school; now security cameras caught them pulling a caper! 

Republicans like Ann Coulter flip flopped..moving forward? some stopped...change or be changed?  check the technology...plastic or paper? 

Danger zones make some respect the psychology...noises were made by jokers wearing flip flops....the natives are restless!

A change is gonna come per Sam Cooke...slow like the drip drop from C.I.A. waterboarding in Afghanistan?....while another was hoarding..whats up man? the stranger was just another crook; but he won't get the best of us! 

....even though we know there's no rest for us...the saga / struggle continues!

Chefs stay busy in hell's kitchen; the meals aren't nutritious on these menus! 

Beats bang in these venues!! the Sonic Assault is unleashed plus check the Random Thoughts From A Brotha! 

Whats really go on? change or be  changed was preached...maybe somebody will be reached...before they're caught out there on some other other!

Life Is Hectic / But We Proceed And Continue

We kept it moving....similar to being on the road to Damascus like anti-regime groups in Syria...as we proceed and continue; but were realizing life is hectic! 

True indeed!! especially if your outside the box like me..what can you ask us? we're not up in the network! 

True indeed....bounties are out for the anti-Islam film maker...now jokers said they're trying to get work.... but I hope its the good kind! 

The Negro College Fund commercial said a mind is a terrible thing to waste; especially the good kind! 

Negro please!!! dude will "holla at me" ...because I'm the hood kind; who will work with a bro? please!! I'm fighting like Jon Jones in UFC 152...acting like I knew....but I see the morale is low all up in the spot! 

Check the swag /steelo...O-Zone's  good word and and O-Dizzle's brand new funk; that's the style when I'm all up in the spot! 

But life is hectic...meanwhile another hero tried to roll up when Tina Turner told us we didn't need one! 

Check the mathematics....another zero behind the decimal threw the equation off!!  now companies are laying off...its a struggle trying to feed one! 

Abe Lincoln supposedly freed one or another; but citizens are still caught up in the system / matrix! 

Not blinking when we stare into the eye of the tiger...not trying to be on the one with it like dude who jumped into the exhibit at the Bronx Zoo...but we proceed and continue; I was never the type to fake it!

Not thinking? please!! my mind works overtime..acting like I knew...life is hectic...please....its tight in these hoods....

But we proceed and continue...check the comeback..a brotha rolls like Florida State Seminoles...trying to put it down like Tiger Woods..

The I-20 Chronicles/ I Still Recognize The Pattern

Back at the scene of the crime...like the renewed unrest in Libya;  I'm seeing what it do...I could already recognize the pattern!

Back down to earth like the Space Shuttle Endeavour..what can I tell ya?  the mothership has landed...usually chilling on Pluto / Mars or Saturn! 

Now I'm back down here on I-20 in Atlanta.....stuck in traffic behind a Saturn and a Subaru Outback! 

Dealing with G-8 and G-20 ...plus decisions made at the Jackson Hole ...acting like I knew...going all out;  but the drama is back! 

.....it said it never left ..now a brotha is back up in the spot...but I see nobody is checking for me! 

....unless scapegoats are needed then they try to set me up;  disrespecting me! 

....or we play ourselves like Mitt Romney...whose electing me...a caste of thousands? it gets stereotypical! 

What will the response be? drama like Sons of Anarchy?  please!! O-Dizzle is wrecking beats in response....digital / analog stereo ...when we get you!

.....surrounded by these pitiful ones..Steve Harvey / Tom Joyner listeners or Republicans tuning in to Sean Hannity! 

....told a joker not to start with me...I could recognize the pattern;
 might have to invoke diplomatic immunity!

As we dip down I-20 in Atlanta in the hooptie....right at the moment of the fall equinox ....this Negro rocks....shining like northern lights...

Patterns are recognized...the system / matrix knocks the hustle..no need to debate it like Obama / Romney...as we drop these insights...

Light At The End Of The Tunnel

We were deep down in the mine; rocking the hardhat with the lantern on top! 

Avoiding South African authorities trying to shoot us..the drama doesn't quit and doesn't stop! 

...But we kept it moving....we didn't quit and didn't stop; but it wasn't Fast and Furious like the gun trafficking operation by the Feds;  we could see the light at the end of the tunnel! 

Others needed their meds...they kept grooving; please!! they're drunk, snorting bath salts, or smoking Usain Bolt OG kush through a funnel!

 Some tried to run a bro; I peeped game...checked their technique; damn!!  had to admit I was afraid of them! 

Now I stay on point like Tupac; I keep my hand on my gun because they've got me on the run....but I change my strategy;  in the cut I laid for them! 

Plus I prayed for them; they were waiting in the dark...they said they had a hunch! 

The media had a grip on them....on Mother Jones Romney said they're living in a fantasy world..thinking there's a free lunch! 

The media had a grip on them...they front like Pastor Terry Jones; but like an accountant numbers we crunch...doing the math after reality checks were passed out! 

The O-Dizzle sound will get funky!!! check the Sonic Assault as a brother lashed out!

 O-Zone crashed out in the tunnel.....it was too dark!!  but I can see the light! 

Rising out of the ashes like the Phoenix?  like Barry White would say.... "sho you right"

The Hold Up / Burglary /Robbery PT.2

We're all up in the spot....after Hezbollah said protests against the anti-Islamic film are on!! now its easy to get jacked;  were in the danger zone! 

Caught up in the system / matrix; whats up with ya?  its easy to get macked;  so what are you on? 

....wasn't brought up with a snitch that faked it...please!! they were dealt with...old dude said choose your poison....get your weight up!!  and keep it moving..or you'll get gaffled! 

These days?  jokers lose weight per Charles Barkley and weight watchers...or they hit the duodenal switch...but check out the hold up / robbery or burglary;  in Atlanta the tourists look baffled! 

Don't even start with me...Louisville / Newburg told me how the staff will do; now bear witness to what this math will do..check out the critical stage of development...now some ask; who will work with me? 

Hill of Horror in Johannesburg type business? Pluto in Capricorn ...the death and rebirth of me? 

Smoke and mirrors type of business? that's the deal!! so whatcha know? auras and swaggers are stolen!

Like Tiger Woods I'm even trying to get my swagger back, trying to catch up on my pimping! 

But its tight in these hoods...not a simple thing; the dagger in my back has me mad at the world! 

Whats good? old school..rocking a LA Dodger snapback in the ATL;  Tyga said they were back..but in Syria rocks are hurled!

During the mass hysteria Occupy Wall Street is back..meanwhile O-Dizzle rocks;  he's rebuking the hold up / burglary /robbery! 

...knowing plans fizzle; plus enemies plot and scheme on nuking the compound; like Craig Mack can I get down? who will work with me?

Some Are Still Contributing To The Confusion In The World

There was a discrepancy...like in Libya...US embassy's security; now some will contribute to the confusion in the world! 

There was a shift in energy; will the Chicago teacher strike end?  my intuition is working overtime...the truth was disputed..now the drama will unfurl! 

La la land residents didn't get likes on Facebook..their news feeds were blocked...but some will get the last laugh like Mike Vick...

"La La La means I love you" types like the Delfonics  were found to be tricking...face to face with a crook? others like Mullage said its alright "if you've got it!!

Ha! Ha! Ha! some found out the jokes on them...whats the response to this? please!!..like US troops in Afghanistan ...whats up man? they found out there's no benevolence.. while they were daydreaming they got jacked! 

Rah Rah types once optimistic become skeptical after the website  or even their smartphone got hacked!

Blah blah candidates were like Mitt Romney...they lacked substance!!  the stories couldn't be verified! 

Ha!! ha!! ha!! per jokes from the comedians contributing to the confusion in the world; after somebody lied! 

Jokers were impeding progress..somebody cried after the Total Chaos took a toll on them! 

Jokers were speeding through the galaxy swerving!! soon they crash and burn..taking a loss after they saw authorities roll up on them! 

They were just contributing to the confusion anyway; observing the scene in these hostile territories..I jumped to that conclusion! 

Jokers were disputing the truth while we were dedicated to it;  with visions of winning not losing!

Jumped To That Conclusion ...That Some Contribute To The Confusion This World....Check Out This Mix From Brotha O

Dealing with the Total Chaos....how did it work bro? the reign became heavy after the drizzle....now like Mike Vick vs the media...trying to get the dagger out of my back so I can move forward! 

The pain was dealt with during the healing process; now I exercise power like a forward!

 But whats up with it? I'm not surprised...jokers act funny...like the Bears and Jay Cutler..might have to cut them from the team! 

Whats up with it?  jokers hold up progress like homie in the deuce and a quarter...on another realm?  behind the scenes  jokers plot and scheme! 

The American Dream turns into a nightmare; Chicago teachers bear witness...no boundary or border is recognized! 

Meanwhile I'm sharing this dream...what does it all mean?  check these clearance rack epiphanies; value meals or supersized?

I'm not surprised...jokers think their cool in the deuce and quarter; ...I'm not mad at them...I had one back in the day!

 But I had to pass homie up; I'm circulating..in transition...moving forward until somebody else gets back in the way!

Will.i.am Vs. Thes One « Whats Really Going On?

Food For Thought PT.2

I was chilling like a villain..or like a Louisvillian...in the kitchen the food for thought is marinating!

Jokers were snitching....or like Pastor Terry Jones...hateful movies they were pitching... but those fools were caught after they did their share of hating! 

Rules are taught; part of the street code...but jokers will violate it rolling through danger zones like the Mideast / Muslim world...they didn't act right! 

Schools of thought were attended by these brothas; O-Zone has this good word...while O-Dizzle will make sure the track is tight! 

Backs were against the wall; we had to fight....that's what this fool was taught! 

We didn't get the story twisted like Rush Limbaugh...whatcha know? a lot of experience was gained.....I pass it on; serving you this food for thought! 

The drama is visited then revisited...jokers need to watch their mouth / diet....out there drunk like Sally Struthers...that fool was caught... 

The drama is visited and revisited...some brothas thought they were slick...like greasy chicken from Churches and Popeye's...check the high cholesterol ...in their systems? the food is caught..

What was it that a fool thought?  this meal is prepared with herbs and spices! 

I see a fool was caught out there;  selling bath salts, x-tablets, and herb from Jamaica...Usain Bolt OG kush? whats the rush? he said his products were the nicest!

Herbs and Busters had an identity crisis; they should have played their positions! 

No justice no peace!! that's food for thought...as we undertake these missions!

Choices

Its like Heatwave; with the mind blowing decisions...choices are made! 

Some misbehave..blowing chances; attacking embassies like in Libya...the wrong decisions were made ..they heard voices; advice was given..but its all a charade!

A masquerade per George Benson....whats the deal with these?  some were curious like George; multiplication and division used in the equation when they did the math! 

How was the game played? was it with precision per the Sun / Mercury conjunction in Virgo?  hope they're on the right path! 

Hope they studied the right math; like Jim Calhoun retiring from coaching UConn...forcing the AD to keep Kevin Ollie... soon they're backed into a corner! 

No where to run or hide; jokers tried to play it like Slave and Slide; now they're caught up in the system / matrix that's out of order! 

Whats are the choices?  might need to pray...so the Lord can order your steps!

Like the GMWA Women Of Worship....so how will you work it?
I see you trying to climb out of the abyss.....but the devil put grease on the steps! 

But a joker steps like they're in a HBCU fraternity or sorority! 

Full of adrenalin!! check the choices a player made..they said something about getting it in; per Kid Cudi...so whats the deally?  soon subject to fraternal orders running the territory! 

Subject to the authority;  said they were on to something!! but they couldn't pass the test; scores were from zero to 60...subjects to drama royalty were fooled by the multiple choices! 

Now others are working it out like Negro National Anthems; everyone is singing...lifting voices!

Here It Is

Random Thoughts From A Brotha: Here It Is: Damn!!!  I was chilling....like Bush receiving pre-9/11 warnings   I thought it wasn't coming..but here it is! Now Sonic Assaults ...are ...

Food For Thought

Lets get it started like MC Hammer!!  as I hit you up with this food for thought! 

Whose a part of it...the conspiracy?  I see they're in the slammer or rehab like Billy Gillipsie ...whats the deally? that fool got caught! 

The old, new, and next school taught lessons to those paying attention! 

.....That is if they weren't too broke because of the economy;  or even taking the wrong steps like Mark Zuckerburg...you heard?  some are actually through dealing! 

Actually I'm through chilling....this Louisville / Newburg brotha is ready to do it...so lets get started;  as I launch this Sonic Assault! 

O-Dizzle will drop the beat....he's a funky type of soul brotha;  while O-Zone has this food for thought! 

Whats the dizzle?....this is not the food network..but he is a chef in soul's kitchen getting busy;  providing nourishment! 

So So Def like Jermaine and them were back in the day....maybe somebody can work with this! 

Doing it to death like the JB's!! all up in the buffet like Golden Corral...some jokers will get greedy! 

A fool got caught way way out there!! I received a call..like Netanyahu calling Obama....they said they needed me! 

All I had for them was this food for thought; as I drop this breakbeat science on them! 

Its rough out here!! a fool got caught now......like Tupac all eyes are on them!

Exploitation

As we proceed and continue; taking this mystic voyage...like the Mars Rover ...we take this intergalactic exploration! 

True indeed!!  chefs bring the ill menu; they're faking...acting erratic!! check out the exploitation! 

True indeed!! football season is underway...offensive and defensive coordinators develop game plans to exploit the situation; they're like the GOP.. plots and schemes are developed! 

True indeed!!  some wonder about the reason for the treason;  bearing witness to what pushing the envelope did! 

Gold exploration part of the exploitation in South Africa; now miners get fired on! 

Old school / back in the day color coordination revealed in Downtown Atlanta ; a joker was rocking platform shoes and polyester suits.... Huggy Bear style!!  ignoring the date that style expired on! 

Chilling at Magic City...sex exploitation the name of the game? how did they work it? 

Some are through dealing...its tragic..but there's no pity...like the teachers strike in Chicago...jokers like Mitt Romney see a window of opportunity...they'll exploit the situation....check out how they work it...

Movies part of black exploitation per Superfly and Shaft; as brothas and sistas get the shaft; its foul!!  the date you were fired on? it was cherished by Donald Trump...you didn't produce your birth certificate! 

Its foul!! but the Sonic Assault will thump; check out  the mothership...it's landed back down on earth; bear witness to how we work it! 

As we bear witness to how the system works it; we're  hip to the exploitation! 

Resources get jacked....stereotypes enhanced; who advanced?  as people are caught up in the system / matrix;  in an unpleasant situation!

The Sonic Assault / The Appointment Confirmation

Check this mission statement; please!! were all about the Sonic Assault; check the steady bombardment! 

Its the response to the Hostile Takeover; all up in hostile territory ....like its Baghdad....were up in the heart of it....but we proceed and continue...as we confirm our appointment

Check the hot style used to tell the story;  don't start it and there wont be none!!...I told the so called anointed...that's what I had to tell a joker! 

Check the hot style...as we confirm our appointment...heard what was said...sounding like Mitt Romney...there was no point in it...I had to tell a joker..

Check the hot style....like tornadoes hitting NYC...O-Zone has this good word and O-Dizzle is the beat broker! 

Check the steelo /swag; its not in my file....the selling out phase; word from a Louisville / Newburg brotha;  not another that's confused with Dracula per Bram Stoker! 

Check the steelo / swag...as I holla atcha...damn!!  a joker is out here tripping!!! whats the deal?  they want me to merge with the apparatus! 

The architect had plans for us all to be caught up in the system / matrix! 

No respect when dealing with a joker that fakes it; their mind state was altered by the drank, weed, or bath salts! 

Jokers even had the Usain Bolt OG kush...they continue to push...now check the response from these breakbeat scientists; as we launch Sonic Assaults! 

We were dipping fast like Usain Bolt....confirming our appointment...but cashing reality checks taught us that's its all an illusion! 

Check these breakbeat scientists...were not tripping...as we bring the rebuttal to the Total Chaos and confusion!
