Aye, What yall getting into lat-e-ly, I'm looking for a place to be, I'm looking for festivity, a little bit of imagery to keep em in vicinity, action, Jackson, Rupnarine symmetry Back up cracker, I'm strapped up cracker, with knap sacks of barrels, crack her in her saddle back, love seat Cadillac, best not to battle back.

Impatiens 02:21
I do what I want, trying to get a piece of that Only if I can, looking for at least a tap (man I take a sneak attack) we trying to make our stories have a happy end We want it all now, impatiens I ain't trying to make small moves I'm trying to get ahead this ain't a pleasure cruise Lots of folks fed up they need better news, They need better lives more than them better shoes But the patience wear thin like a pants crotch on a fat man, watch crackers hit the jackpot, And nuthin left for the dark and the bro We been planted in some soil that don't grow But I ain't trying to be a seed all my life, There ain't enough time around hear to think twice, got others underground looking for the light, And we can't leave em in the dark, that ain't never right So you could either see us all at the finish line, Or you could get a bite after I have finished mine But I'ma have my hand out if you wanna grab it, Cause the tortoise ain't losin to no jackrabbit

Flippin the feel, totally evident Skimmin the deal, totally relevant Reticent definite, never to share Not that your freind list ever gon care Back on the pulpit, takin no bullshit, stuck in a corporate atmosphere Yeah I could forge it, so they could gorge it, takin in comers from everywhere Low, slitherin sloppily though Feelin like copy me? Go Whether or not, you made or you got, people out there aint gon know Brothers they movin too slow Sisters they movin too slow Sick to my belly, yellin for rememdy, but you aint hearin me tho Ima say girls Ima say girls Ima say fellas be dumber than ever, and ladies they runnin the show Dudes be playin the fool, ladies be gettin the glow Ima say girls Ima say girls Fuck, everything you like, everything you dig on Everything thats hype, everything thats klingon Romulan Thug Life, fuck logic, more strife Cloaking is for pussies, like believin in an afterlife Ima say girls, Ima say girls Ima say world listen up bitch Time to "press yuh on switch" Ima say word, Ima say word If you ask if I wanna set fire to the suburbs Ima say girls Ima say girls

Who want it, who steppin up first Who act in hard and yet have they mouth terse Got no time like I'm missing the minute hand Watch me rise for an hour, not a minute man Limits nah, not really known to be prophetic and not afraid to say it when my people act pathetic man We got to beat these labels and these names so when they try to the tables the tables already made

Monotheism is like a monkey sound

I'm known to fling words around, Damn if it injure bystanders, Be the shogun to a ninja My master is the man in the mirror, Man in the mirror mastered me Through a terror esque thought process, Can't keep it locked in, So I let the shit go like a fart in the wind. Smelt it dealt it so the fuck what My shit smell better than your armpit, "gon git!" I ain't mean to start beef or a fuss My b my buss my buss my b my b my buss buss.

about

The newest album from sound designer, composer, rapper and voice over artist: M-CUE. This album was released over the span of 5 months, with a new song every Monday, starting January 6th 2014.

A note from M-Cue:

I've been working on this album for about a year, with a very specific idea in mind about its production and my artistic approach. Every song that I've made for the last year (excluding ones I was paid to make for videogames, and thus are contractually obligated not to sell on my own) is on this record. You are getting an unfiltered look into my creative output for the last year. Nothing has been edited out, nothing has been cut.

It's been quite a open-hearted experience for me, but one that I think will help me become a more fearless artist, which was my goal with this record.

Pricing: I decided to go with the pricing of $13 for the album, for a couple of reasons.

1. Its a 20 track album. I think there are folks out there charging $10 for 5 song dubstep albums, and people gobble it up. Just because I'm an independent artist, doesn't mean I have to conform to thrift store pricing in order to make my music heard.

2. 13 is usually regarded as an unlucky number. What I've done creatively on this record is unorthodox, and perhaps a bit unlucky in its very concept ("what? you're not editing yourself? that's crazy! Aren't you afraid of getting a crap song on your album?"). All good points, however, I choose to wave the red flag in front of the bull, and challenge my own fate, so $13 just seemed appropriate. Might as well embrace the unluckiness.

So I hope you enjoy the album, it's a wild ride through many, many genres. Its stitched together like Frankenstein's monster, and deliberately jarring at times. It represents how I think this human race must look from above, which I think is disjointed and confusing, even when you're on the ground. We really don't make a whole lot of sense as a people.

Many thanks to all who supported me through this insane journey, and particularly to Naomi, who always has my back, no matter how semi-baked my concepts and thought processes may be.

How We Look From Above.

Sincerely,
M-Cue
