Def Sound IS Alive.

  • Streaming + Download

    Its 2010, all I wanted people to know was I was Alive. So I made this in my first year of fully dedicating my life to art. I want you 2 feel as Alive and inspired as I do. Its an ITtape because its not really a mixtape its just IT for now. Whatever IT is 2 you. Its been 2 years since I dropped “Something.” literally… EVERYTHING has changed. I felt like writing my name on everything especially things I dont own. Like your ears. Just like a young graff artist with a bunch of new cans he cant wait 2 use. Just a reminder 4 people I am Alive. I thought about it the other day randomly and BIGGIE named his first album “Ready 2 Die” and I am naming my first tape “Alive”. Theres something significant about that without trying to be different. I just am. I didnt want to make something that was 2 contrived or boring I wanted something 2 show the growth that had 2 happen before I put out the Sequel 2 “Something.” (“Anything.” Jan. or Feb. of 2011) there have been many transitions and choices (Art is just a publically displayed choice that exists independent of opinions and its creator). I wanna thank Maceo for the artwork, every feature, guest, muse, and The Port's for all the support on the project, and EVERYONE who already knows the deal I couldnt make this without ALL of you.I feel like a completely new person.
    I am Alive.

Let me make a list of
everything you missed it
chopped and screwed point of views
auto tuned my whisper
had 2 change my hair before my hair changed me
if you looking if you listen its the same me

party less
praying more
speaking less
reading more
sleeping less
seeing more
God with us meet the Lord

i aint writing 4 reviews
i aint writing 4 results
im writing 4 my pulse
so u aint gotta post

mind state global
mad shows local
studio in no ho
Mace did the logo

the logo is my icon
Roy Hobbs whens Mic on
get the picture Nikon
a new dawn my eyes on
etc and so on
I'm so on
hi with the LO
if you listen its like you got my life on

talking 2 myself
helped me learn 2 talk 2 beats
got an inner view without interviews
I met Shafiq

Britt got my on Gondry
art got me Godly
Ty got me more Ghandi
Henny got me more charming

Poetic got locked up
now he's out all love
Holly was the mentor
Fasfa got me in the Mac store

"so what we doing 2night?"
all i wanted 2 know is what we doing with life
cut her like my locks and shit
aint a dissss Raad is missed
but ever since shes gone and went
Happiness no accident

doubters wont believe me
RC went 2 Fiji
inhaling on sea weed
Lite dropped a cd

Cut Ties with Fresh 2 Def

"wipe me down I'mma mess"

Local Tourist sponsored me
didnt wanna manage me
its all love applause

5 hour energies
OD'ed on inner peace
I'm not more polished I'm just more honest
I'm not less human I'm just more artist

living in the now,
Mos say I'm Def
say Hello 2 Mr. Sound

Track Name: If.The.Sky.Was.A.Her.She'd.Be.U.
Verse #1:

Love without instruction
speak with out discussions
something something something
i didn't like the rest
cuz I'm nothing like the rest
I write songs about her
she'd rather i send a text
when i commune with cate
I'm anti gravity
I'm immune 2 wait
everybody likes her
but i would never say
i would rather show
she would rather know
without further notice
her favorite song it goooooes

I been waiting on you
but you been hating on you

why is she so scared of heights ?
don't she knows shes the sky?

Why she gotta learn 2 fly?
forgets shes the sky

Why you gotta learn 2 fly?
don't you know you that your the sky ?

don't you?

verse 2:
(*clear thoat*)
Ummmmmmm sorry I'm late 2 the 2nd verse
I couldn't find parking
can i beg your pardon?
ilove a lil joy your my favorite martian
i aint window shopping
and you aint on the market

does everything have 2 be a poem?
we're different
the difference between a crow and a desk
collecting all the o's plus the x
catty corner categories
cuz they kinda really bore me

I loved you before i liked you
I drew you before I ever eyed you
forgot, before I ever knew you
standing still and then I still moved you

our sidebars need on stars
we dream on beyond stars
beyond far
find us here


(Additional layered hook)

Track Name: In.Fat.U.ation.
Verse 1:
The innocence of hello
the natural high of hi
the 1st text message
you waiting on reply
love aint like like
aint a metaphor you try
in hindsight
my sight caught her right eye
Caught her like cold
she was under my nose
like words my words go
but certain words wont
when loving love dont
she so butter
shes so cold that I want covers
but i wont smother
multiple choices and i check other
blind like stevie but I wont wonder
I just want her
love aint science
no L. Ron Hubbard
invest all my time I'll just fund her
for certain and forsure
she "in search of.." a n.e.r.d
I'm in search of some words
(2 insert within hers)
shes like favorite song that I've never heard
but I know every word

Verse 2:
infatuation will arise
but u gotta be smart about it

I am on a 24 hour Def sound diet
*laugh*don't knock it before you try it
love i cant describe it
i can just supply it
I love her 4 her brain
you want the booty like a pirate

I am on my disney shit
u can call it pluto flow
here we go like merry go
in the air we aerial
a ring or a fling

Lines written in martian

Say a prayer that is hopeful mom's cookin Tofu

If you really gotta talk to me
keep the convo @ a midget
short words
short terms
food 4 thought
I'm just loving life G

Verse 2:
Living my every day like I'm not your everyday

of pictures that your past paints
down 2 earth grass stains

1 minute def sound on
streets that we driving on
aint a walk in Kenneth Hahn
got me got my living on
tracks that I'm spittin on
got Val gets his spinnin on
artwalking attention drawn
copy and I paste every quotes of day 2 the twitter page
analyzing thru the waste
for the miles that it takes 2 put a smile on her face

with the passion of me
captured belief
ahead of my time as a past time
til I'm passing and leave

Track Name: A.Song.Call.ed.Alive! feat. Ragen Fykes
Verse 1:
Let forever start here
diamond in the ruff lookin like debeers
in class of my own with a absence of fear
so alive so gone is he here?
Dark hours
Bright moments
Great seconds
God's blessings
I bring 2 my brethren
and I sing thee exception
of extinct black perceptions
sick flow infecting
talking 2 the people that they say were invisible
here another rapper that they said you'd never listen 2
Def with the vision 2
20/20 syllables
listen man
my mind is a parachute
openly I share with you
sicker than some theraflu
free falling
landing where airfare is due
leaving birds with jealous view
and the telescopes are telling you
your 2 high your 2 fly
gravity is scared of you

(sang by Regan) :
He makes me feel so Alive
Alive Alive
and I tell him
that every moment is Alive

Verse #2
Hahaha aint life funny
one day ya rolling like a rinking raking in the money

listen 2 and love me
2 def life or 2 something
Wave good bye the shackles they used 2 chain us
say Soo long 2 angles they used 2 paint us
self hate they wont claim they gave us
Alive, amazing times we living in
sometimes, you just wanna hear the instruments......


U.&.Ur.:) Lyrics:

just you and smile
lets be here while

Verse 1:
midnight dancing on a star
real life looking so bizarre

we get lost
lost in who we are
you aint moving
seems far


some days ya don't wanna speak, ya know
some days I just wanna see, ya smile

Verse 2:
Tried loving @ life speed
God gave me my heart back
like something you need
hit record when I'm board playing with heart strings
swear she aint from here
something you sight see

ya know,uh

she must be a tourist
she might be a taurus
I seen it in the star
she's in another orbit

relationships a tour bus
the single lifes a porshe
seats a few 4 a few
imagine when tour stops

ya know,

mentally absorbing ya
the apple of my cornea
dead all ya fears
you can leave em @ the coroner
the girl of my dreams
but I think I got insomnia

hey,aint we all thee exceptions
behind every break up there hides a blessing

Word, uh
even tho ya walkin out
looking in ya rear view
always something 2 smile about...


Track Name: Captur.ed.Laugh.ter.
(All sorts of Captured Laughter)

Verse 1:
hate is just love that we dont know what 2 do with,
listen 2 or mute it, close your eyes and view,
find it more or lose it
find yo mind so we lose it
in conclusion
we're confusing
and batteries included
it sucks when your stressed out
and yourself is feeling left out
sanity is less now
spoiled like left the milk out
old views old you's
rolling with your ex now
phonetics with yo feelings
trying 2 sound the rest out

music is a hiding place
I hide away
I'm wide awake
I write away
right away
now is now
ride the wave
title wave
of lesser played
you say that you like it def
I'll glady be your hearing aid
this is sick you hearing aids
let be sincere and say
you arent who you appear 2 play
I'd rather just watch a play

Its the Natural
the organic
4 the love
the romantic
The Natural
the fantastic
the miracle
no magic
The Natural
all planets
the everywhere
the outlandish
The Natural
all passion
so foriegn
no accents
Just Natural
you cant plan it
its something
it just happens

Verse 1:
Dance floor general
All things awesome mind state

No that aint subliminal
the mantra when we meditate

verse 2:
Change yo twitter status'
find the ugly beautiful

If everybodies weird
what makes you unusual?

look inside my lab and see
I'm recharging my batteries
Anythings almost here
run around on saturns rings

landed on yo planet

re appeared and vanished
put the in in your insanity

Jig saws
freak shows nympho's
low life's
lost my mental
