Lyrics: Surgeon

Crowd live – hype – on the verge of surging.
Lights shine bright, white like a virgin.
Brave new tricks, new kicks emerging,
with a beat so sick it’s gonna need a SURGEON*

*bit of an update on Sway’s ‘Download‘ lyric there.

Next week the random word to rap with is EARTH

Lyrics: Flash

I’ll never be a king in this game, unlike Sway.
Or muder all the bars like KA.
Writing the rhymes to help me pass the day,
unravelling my mind, see what it’s got to say.
The story of my life as I walk this way,
enter a decade on my next birthday.
No FLASH in the pan, yo I’m here to stay,
so come along for the ride, we’re going All The Ray…….

Next week we have to rap with the word: REPUBLIC.

Lyrics: Motel [36bar special!]

As a rap fan, you can’t hear the word ‘motel’ and not think of ‘Rappers Delight’! Even my wife started reciting the ‘hotel, motel, Holiday Inn’ line. So that’s where I’ve begun this week and have ended up doing a bit of a hip-hop history timeline. It’s super-long which hopefully makes up for me missing 2 weeks due to holiday!

We used to rhyme about the ‘hotel, MOTEL, Holiday Inn’,
dip dip dive, socialising.
Up-rock, twist and lock – body popping,
Grandmaster Flash would get the needle dropping.
Cut and scratch the beat – he invented mixing.
Doug E Fresh complete mental beatboxing.
Flip, turn, do the worm – breakdancing.
Kurtis Blow yo, had the breaks happen to him.
Run DMC – they were down with the king.
We all wanted to be paid in full, like Rakim.
Flavor Flav rocked the clock – tick tick tocking.
P.E. and Spike Lee, yo do the right thing.
Daisy age, De La Soul – ring ring ring.
NWA with lyrics shocking.
Rap CDs – they started stickering.
East coast / West coast – they started bickering.
Notorious BIG and Lil Kim
Pac got jacked and the light went dim.
Nas and Lauryn Hill were world ruling
She revealed her miseducated schooling
Snoop Dogg sipping on juice and gin.
Warren G started regulating.
Eminem showed us who’s the real slim.
50 Cent got all the clubs jumping.
Common and LL started acting.
The Beastie Boys were Intergalacting.
Jay Z got busy empire making,
while his girl B, got booty shaking.
Dizzee Rascal – now the UK breaking
So Solid – 21 seconds for the taking
KA, Wretch, pass out from Tinie Tim
Sway upped it and he’s Still Speeding.
Hip-hop–Don’t Stop, we’re still rapping.
The clock tick-tocks yo there’s no slacking.
Grab that microphone and get recording.
RAP – let the new chapter begin!

Almost written as a verse for an Up Your Speed remix in a ‘call to arms’ youth movement kinda way:

London – Up Your Speed!
You better get ready for the youth STAMPEDE,
stomping so hard, it’ll make your ears bleed,
we’ve more legs moving than a millipede.
You’re too slow, if you smoke that weed,
need clarity of thought, mind, word and deed.
Mobilise against the lies, yo fight that greed,
be blazing a trail wherever the Spirit leads!

Top Ten Tunes 2013

Alright gang, thought I’d post my top-ten tunes I’ve been listening to this year. They’re not all necessarily from this year, but have made up the soundtrack to my 2013. Not all rap tunes by any means, but an insight into the listening pleasures I enjoy.

10: Sway – No Sleep.
I like the beat to this, and I really like the KSI verse. Hadn’t heard of him before this. Sway is easily my favourite rapper and am looking forward to the album finally coming in 2014.

9: Tyler James feat Kano – Worry about you
Fantastic tune, really catchy hook. Great to have a bit of Kano back in my ears.

8: Jacob banks – something beautiful
This guy has a stunning voice. I read about him in 1883 magazine and went and checked him out.

7: Nina nesbitt – statues
The amazing Nina Nesbitt took over mine and Aaron’s life in 2013. This is beautiful and the video is gorgeous too.

6: Ellie Goulding – Burn
Best dance track I’ve heard in ages. Verse 2 is cracking on the first two fast lines. This would be so brilliant to drop into in the middle of a worship tune in church!

5: Bruno Mars – Treasure
What a tasty chunk of funk. Again, verses are great. really fun to sing them.

4:  Billy Joel – The longest time
Brought to my attention thanks to appearing in a Glee episode. Like ‘treasure’ above, it’s a song I sing to my daughter.

3: Beth Croft – Arms of Grace
Great worship song. It’s all about the bridge!!

2: Sway and Kano – Still Sway and Kane
Monster monster tune! Apart from Kano’s potty mouth, I actually think he edges it on this. I like the way he varies his flow over the verse. Shame they never got to release it properly. This looked a cert to take the number 1, until …….

1: Nina Nesbitt – Way in the world
She really did just take over my ears from the second half of the year. Upbeat with a lovely sunny and fresh video. Just a ‘pop’ tune, but, this was the real moment Nina cemented her place in my life heh heh!!

aaah, failed again!!! Even though I was quite excited by this week’s random word, preparations for my son’s birthday took over and I never got beyond the first 2 lines [which are keepers!] or had time to write them up. Turned into a fun list of some of my fave things though….

Like thick yellow CUSTARD on a hot cherry pie,
you bring me comfort, make me feel warm inside.
My love for you, it is the greatest joy in life,
nothing else comes close, be as hard as they try:
TLC – No Scrubs, with the rap from Left-Eye,
or the Creep video, where they’re looking superfly.
Listening to Boyz II Men – Water Runs Dry,
or bouncing with the Luniz – telling me how they’ve got 5.
Marvin and Tammi singing “you’re all I need to get by
Jackson’s Smooth Criminal dressed all in white,
a sublime sunset, a yellow/orange painted sky,
or Lara Lewington doing the weather every night
A well designed font, with ligatures on the f i,
even football tennis, kicking the ball up real high!
You’re the top of the pile, like Sway at DCY
Happy Birthday son, I love you my special guy!!

Lyrics: GENIUS

Well this blog’s been running about a year and a day,
Thanks to all the poeple who’ve joined in along the way.
We get a new random word every monday,
then rap me up some lines, get in the game and play.
I’m no rap GENIUS, I’m no threat to Sway,
but still representing my team UK.
Just hoping you’re enjoying what I rhyme ‘n’ say,
here’s to more years, cheers! Love Simon Ray

Lyrics: CANE

Cannot help but be influenced by my fave SWAY on this speed themed one:

Seatbelt – click, click. Engine revving – tick, tick.
Right hand up on the steering wheel, left hand on the gearstick.
Wheels spin spinning like slick slick. Pedal to the metal I’m quick quick.
Making noise in ya ends, gonna CANE it round the bends. I’m gonna make ya sick sick.

Next weeks word: FIRE
