Realness 02:17
If I had a million bucks for every time I gave a fuck I'd barely be a millionaire, I never seen a ceiling here I'm just barely feeling air, I can't establish limits here I'm just trying to fly, welcome to the sinner's lair Interfere, feel the fist as the first of my winning pair I ain't got no third eye bitch my vision been impaired No illuminati carbon copies of the missionaire French make it rhyme, stupid fuck pick up a dictionnaire Reference rappers reeling in for the fishes They going for the line, I'm going for the picture Bigger than the frame they were ever in They could never win, they just here to clean my dishes, bitches Born alone, die alone, no crew to keep my crown of thorns I'd sleep like a newborn if this was my final song Ugh, the realness Ok, I was sent here to better the human race Better later than never, we moving at a stupid pace Love is hate, we started bashing on Cupid's face Now everything laced, cloud nine is a huge disgrace Smoke weed to clear my mind, soothing grace That petrol, impossible to say its use is safe Soma fiends poppin pills like they doing base Famished, food so bad it feels more like fuel intake If this the cruelest fate, then I'm in a shooting phase I'm going out on my own terms like feuding states Damn, I'm high off that realness Got weed as well, but I get by with this real shit I don't need any big words for you to feel this Never footed in a circle, I'm giving y'all a REAL twist It's keep you on your heels tip, limitless, fearless I'm speaking my piece, shit, it'll make your ears twitch That fukushima, don't wanna come near this My wrath is godly, and you been told to fear it Peel clips, bananas for monkeys in the zoo What I shoot is a problem you gon have to deal with… REALNESS

I was born in 89 with a crazy mind Lately I'm looking back at the past tryna find way behind What I can't see in front of me, passenger seatbelt on comfortably Like it's all part of a great design I wish I could make this mind believe that Imagine having a friend who can always provide feedback Who answers all the questions without having to read facts I guess the only question is do you really need that? It's probably hard to answer this When you were born already signed up for a membership Look at the world around the time when December splits Saying grace even though nobody gives a shit The power of prayer is the power of the pray To become the predator at any moment of day Belief in one's self, fuelled by love or hate By a system of victims asking a God to be saved… A fraud can be great, but never authentic And a God can't be made to fit in our image Look at the universe and all the shit in it And you think WE have the answer for all that's infinite? Billions of galaxies, Star Wars scenarios far away We can't even have peace in our own estate We go to war for golden states, warriors lost Looking for wages in the golden age Tell me how can you say we got the soul When we can't even work towards a common goal Tell me what kind of collective wisdom Allows us to act like we got control, cause I'm trying to know...

Oh - so you watching the news Tick tock the clock going through Minutes pass - oh so confused In at last, it's all feeling new Finish last, gimmicks pass Image crashed, but they're keeping the rule Cynics laugh, business path Those with the knowledge lead the abuse - but If a nation of millions can't hold us back Why a few thousand leading all the pack Shoulder strap on lil soldier remind him who's the boss and who he sposed to attack Rolling strapped - and they get on fields Dropping bombs like it's exxxon deals Growing strong as their rep is sealed in an imprint get shit set for real Extra millz, extra millz Why they tryna act like they ain't wreck the wheel?! Stoned age, they don't play Keep us zombified while the checks are filled Get that money money cause the paper getting funny They setting the weather whatever fits when they make it sunny …and if the rest are getting hungry Make it rain like david blaine teleporting to another country Shit, it might sound funny to you But it don't seem funny to me They believe things that they ain't never seen I done told y'all that you can never sleep They don't listen, nope, they don't listen Society don't care if it don't glisten If it goes missing, and it's non-christian Who will give a fuck cause it ain't your mission So say fuck that shit, might as well abide if the run that shit So load that clip, buck that clip, - go ahead society, cut that wrist HOOK: LOOK LEFT, GO RIGHT TRY NOT TO BLINK IN THE STROBE LIGHT COLD LIFE, NO RIGHTS THEY TRYNA MAKE YOU GOUGE OUT YOUR OWN EYES IGNORANCE, NOT THE RAPPING KIND LEADS THE CONFUSION TO THE MINDS EYES CLOSED, MINDS TOO ILLUSIONS EVERYWHERE THEY LEAD THE BLIND ILLUSIONS, ILLUSIONS CLOSED EYES CAN'T SEE THE MOVEMENT ILLUSIONS, ILLUSIONS CLOSED MINDS CAN'T HEAR THE MUSIC ILLUSIONS, BETTER KNOW THIS WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS WILL YOU ACT? CAN YOU BACK ALL THAT SMART TALK WHEN IT'S OVER? Simon's wisdom Shown on track feel the fire within Blinded vision, wise decisions The two don't mix like crime and children So I'm mayan with it Feel the future slip by our system See the shooters clips dying with em' They tryna prove a point that they could never make so the stakes are fake And the trials are fiction People got a mild addiction, feed em lies, feed em fries Feed em fat fucking burgers, foetus-sized Freedom muthafucka ain't it free to die Penalized, cause it ain't free to live so the fees just rise And evil lies in the feeble eyes of an old rich man that can't see his thighs, see it's why I don't trust anybody but me If I'm making moves it ain't for my country It's to further my cause Ain't no laws against trusting my team so I'm trusting my team Trusting my team, y'all know the meaning No illusions when I blow the scene up Faux demeanour when the phoney lean against the fourth wall Verses are north korean Kim Jong, ping pong thoughts in screening Eat it up, live it up, find the cost of treason Cause propaganda's like proper ganja Cloud of smoke will get you lost in reason Social stigmas, soul is missing How can you call those growth conditions A slow collision, is what we headed for Thanks to old world chauvinism While y'all worry bout I Worry bout eyes in triangles they straight bury y'all pride Make you look left while they all go right It ain't about death, it's all about life HOOK: LOOK LEFT, GO RIGHT TRY NOT TO BLINK IN THE STROBE LIGHT COLD LIFE, NO RIGHTS THEY TRYNA MAKE YOU GOUGE OUT YOUR OWN EYES IGNORANCE, NOT THE RAPPING KIND LEADS THE CONFUSION TO THE MINDS EYES CLOSED, MINDS TOO ILLUSIONS EVERYWHERE THEY LEAD THE BLIND ILLUSIONS, ILLUSIONS CLOSED EYES CAN'T SEE THE MOVEMENT ILLUSIONS, ILLUSIONS CLOSED MINDS CAN'T HEAR THE MUSIC ILLUSIONS, BETTER KNOW THIS WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS WILL YOU ACT? CAN YOU BACK ALL THAT SMART TALK WHEN IT'S OVER?

ST: I grew up in a middle class household Food in my belly, with spare to keep the mouse full Ugh, but my mom would keep the house cold Save on heating so she could provide the South Pole Never the flyest, I was on that low-cost airline Seat in the back, next to the fryer Situation's dire, when you got plenty to eat But quantity ain't quality so I'd be called a liar If I said it was all fun games, waiting for the wire My father providing the way he can sitting in the fire Dancing with the devil, cursing the messiah Cause my mom pulled us apart without the use of pliers - Plus I need a new supplier My weed guy used to be the shit, now he's selling China - damn How can we live this way? I always keep it real - how can we live this way HOOK: How can we live this way? I always keep it real - tell me how we live this way Last year - I wasn't relevant Next year - I probably won't be Last year - I wasn't relevant This year - that's what I'm gon' be I feel a force, energy flows but no God No fraud, long white beard with clothes on More like protons, cells create patterns As they repeat the knowledge gets so strong I wanna prolong, my time on Earth but not at the cost of my dignity It's not even about how they depicting me That ain't shit to me, it's just that I control my life And living it my way is the ultimate victory Get that? If it's up to me I'll hit that Blunt when I'm going in space in a dispatch Get me in a suit - oxygen for a thin lapse And just watch the stars as I get back To energy, transferred to another cause Another setting, another shape, some other laws I wanna live that way I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way HOOK: I wanna live that way I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way I wanna live that way I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way Last year - I wasn't relevant Next year - I probably won't be Last year - I wasn't relevant This year - that's what I'm gon' be .nox: My radius is constant, circumference is monstrous The meaning of my life reach Pi so it's perfect Surrounded by the right peeps, nox deep Woulda drank myself out, like "Fuck it if I breathe" Deteriorate, steady rate, poundage of a heavyweight "Wake the fuck up nigga, you need to elevate !" Yeah -- so I pick where I left off Ticked that my Bic couldn't fit what my chest poured Breath holding cigarette, stress 'bout this damn court Cuffs on my wrists made it real, I stepped forward Yeah, and that's life for ya Engineering kid, but one dumb nigga Gotta walk 'fore you run, don't walk past your own Nobody's clean as a nun, forgive and live strong Yeah, I wanna live that way Always keep it real and I live that way nigga HOOK: I wanna live that way I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way I wanna live that way I always keep it real, and I wanna live that way Last year - I wasn't relevant Next year - I probably won't be Last year - I wasn't relevant This year - that's what I'm gon' be Chibi: Clownin up like jesters Then askin fo sum justice Like who u tryna fool yo when we laughin at ur gesture No need na call no holy if ur problem be ur vessel With no mo choice na lean, fists ready fo sum wrestle Position, eyes straight lookin like a victor Submitted to em laws of strenght, and pressured  by em clevers But projettin of a warrior yet his bravery got evicted So  standin at a lost clad, we hope dat he wuz gifted Bu whats da point if granted, to live mah life ahead  of pain, as i be walkin miles with cocomilk n sandals U know u had it simple when u speak o charm n bangle But when da street collidin, u be hididin, 'hind a vessel Straight up like a shooter, ask em ppl where da missile And straight,At ur disposal, freshly cropped fo u nxt victim Goin out fo broke, Nixon mask under me brethren Its Chibi, ST, Liam, Inside the Circle

about

"Get inside the circle, you'll believe all my ish…"

You never know how far a line will take you. Sometimes, it lives and dies with the song it's in, and other times, it sticks with you and oftentimes takes a whole different meaning as life goes on. More than a follow-up to Fresh Crops, Inside the Circle is an evolution and a trip inside ST and Liam's philosophies. It's a dose of the overview effect, a look into the grand scheme of things.
Shouts out to everyone that played a part in this project - .nox, Chibi and all the others that were there to influence us, keep it real with us or simply give their support along the way.

YOU ARE NOW INSIDE THE CIRCLE.

The offical video for "Realness" is out! Check it out. TTT
