This is the second installment in Liam's beat tape series. I called this one volume 1½ and not volume 2 because I decided to keep it a short format and leave the official second part for a longer tape. The project was made in its entirety by sampling Kitaro's An Enchanted Evening live album. The title and track names reflect that cold time of the year and the events that lead me to randomly find that Kitaro album in my mom's car.

My generation's focused on Sega Saturns
Projects so bad they don't matter
Anti-matter colliding with atoms going backwards
Fuck it going faster
Than the speed of light, the streets are bright
But not their chatter, I'm a
Definitely modern man
Artisan with college grants
Polo socks and a no-name brand
Out the box in a no-man's-land
They want me to think like I'm on the brink
Of being extinct but that's no damn plan
Cause they dinosaurs working 9 to 4
If they align for war they got no damn chance
Uhm, fuck a minor role they wanna cop designer clothes
A hunnid yachts - some other boats, OH
Fuck making the gold I wanna go around the globe
Don't care if I go broke, nope
2-5 with real goals cause fuck a dream
Trust the muthafuckin team
Knowledge busting through the seams
So come and take a flight with me
We gon get it right, got a piece of advice
Put this weed in the light and spend the night with me
Painting portraits I'm Da Vinci getting high, quickly
My title at the end of my life will be the…
It's the Renaissance man
Time to paint a different picture than a coffin
Wanna get the definition of a prophet
Then look in the mirror not in your pockets, that's the offset
