Biography

Dreyson S. Clark aka "DOUBLE PORTION" was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. He has been musically inclined since birth. Although Dreyson was raised in a Christian home, after the death of his father, he quickly indulged himself into the sinful lifestyle that was being promoted by several main stream rap artists at that time. Dreyson wrote his first rap verse in the spring 1990, “In any competition I’ll win; tougher than alligator skin…” From the spring of 1990 thru 1999, he was connected with several local rap groups spanning from Texas to South Carolina. His first rap concert was in the spring of 1993 at ‘The Bomb Factory’ in Dallas, TX. In Dallas Dreyson continued to grow in his talents as a rap artist. In the fall of 2000 Dreyson executively produced his first solo album entitled “Thursday the 12th Day B-4 Drama” it sold several thousand units and his life was changed forever.

In 2003 the Dreyson experienced a life changing event where he came very close to death, but LORD saved and blessed him. Even though his first full length LP had been distributed to several local stores throughout the city, the Spirit of God directed him to retrieve them from those stores. Armed with the Word of God, and blessed with a commanding and powerful voice with the precise ability to put together complex rhyme schemes; through Christ DOUBLE PORTION is bringing back the lost souls and leading Christians all around the world in an offensive attack against the enemy and his strongholds. The Lords’ divine planning allows DOUBLE PORTION to continue honing his skills as a holy rap artist, so that he remains an efficient and effective weapon for God’s Army in these last and perilous days and times. The Lords’ will shall be done!

Lyrics

THE FAITHFUL SPY

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)

Verse 1:
I was deep in the streets like Precise and Red
I've seen things that go bump in the night ran with the dead
Ran with the red ran with the blue tryin' to get the green
I was hooked on thug life like nicotine
thought I was up on game but I didn't have a clue
I ended up embracing a lie and runnin' from the truth
I couldn't see my error I was right I suppose
So I commence to move elbows and chop Os
from halves to wholes cookin' dope on stoves
I watched fiends fill their nose til' their whole face froze
this is how it goes on the other side of wonderland
my bloodshot eyes had my mom at home wonderin'
when her baby boy was gon' come back home
where did she go wrong satan entered our home through a song
the rap arena it changed my whole demeanor
I went from the chosen one to felonies and misdemeanors

Chorus:
The grass ain't greener on the other side
you received a false report the other spies lied
The grass ain't greener on the other side
you received a false report the other spies lied
The grass ain't greener on the other side
you received a false report the other spies lied
The grass ain't, grass ain't, grass ain't,
grass ain't, grass ain't greener on the other side

Verse 2:
Then the game changed, that's when things got strange
I thought everyone was out to get me like Max Payne
next came paranoia from makin' friends with the destroyer
let's chop it up lil' homey I got a story for ya
cause he never was no friend of me, could never be no kin to me
this is how I wound up sleepin' with the enemy
Injecting all this sin in me how could I pretend to be
something that I wasn't I thank GOD cause it was meant to be
Now I see how the other side moves
and and learned the number one rule that it ain't no rules
I went deep cover my brother but Jesus brought me back
to bring to the young Christians the first hand facts
and it all started because I wanted to rap
I walked from under GOD'S protection and I fell into a trap
but he showed me bout' that street life, showed me what the streets like
and now to the ghetto and the church I can teach life

Chorus (1x)

Verse 3:
Just like the second hands on the clock
I won't stop preachin' until' I reach the block
to the brother with the matchbox in his socks that's full of rocks
to the sister that dance and romance with no tops
this is how it goes down fake pounds and heavy rounds
police sirens got moms cringin' from the sound
they got rupauls rujohns and all types of other names
youngsters losin' their life indulgin in hood thangs
the hood is strange and this is the funny thang
the people moan and complain and sayin it's a money thang
TVs and videos got chains on their brain
pockets in a strain rejectin' GOD embracin' flames
the ghetto ain't a place it's a mindstate
and there's a reason you've been placed in a state where the crime rate
is high
so you can look to the sky
let the LORD dry your eye
he's the answer to your why

Chorus (2x)

20/20 VISION

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)

Chorus:
Hindsight! Hindsight is 20/20!
Hindsight! Hindsight is 20/20
“Jesus!” Back then I didn’t want Him! Now I’m saved I’m all up on Him!
‘I said!’ Back then I didn’t want Him! Now I’m saved I’m all up on Him!

Verse 1:
Some times life is tricky and people are phony
like in ‘The Mack’ with Goldie ask your boy Pretty Tony
Envy and jealousy will take your number 1 homey
and turn him into your enemy at the top it’s lonely
I said all that to say this
if your works ain’t fully committed to God it’s a hit or a miss.
And even if you think it’s a hit it’s always a twist
what good to gain the world and lose your soul in the abyss.
Experience let you see your mistakes crystal clear
but it don’t have to be your teacher so listen here
Take the bumps and the bruises of another mans walk
and line it up with his fruit and sincerity of his talk!

Chorus (1x)

Verse 2:
Now put your hands in the air if you want to get saved!
Put your hands in the air if you don’t like getting played!

Put your hands in the air if you already saved!
You accepted Jesus Christ and your debt is fully paid!

Now just bounce! Bounce for the Messiah!
Bounce! Bounce, Bounce for Jesus Christ!
Bounce! Bounce for the Messiah!
Bounce! Bounce, Bounce for Jesus Christ!

Now nod your head up and down if you really living Holy!
Nod your head up and down and tell the devil you don’t know me!

Nod your head up and down if your really living Holy!
Nod your head up and down and tell the devil he a phony!

Praise the Lord with the psaltery! Praise Him with your dance!
Praise Him with the cymbal and praise Him with your hands!

Praise the Lord with the psaltery! Praise Him with your dance!
Praise Him with the cymbal and praise Him with your hands!

Hallelujah! We must raise the praise! Hallelujah! We must raise the praise!
Hallelujah! We must raise the praise! Cause when the praises go up, blessings come down!

Chorus (2x)

PRESSIN'

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)


Chorus:
I’m pressin' toward the mark. I’m pressin' toward the mark.
I’m pressin', pressin', I’m pressin', I’m pressin' toward the mark!
I’m pressin' toward the mark. I’m pressin' toward the mark.
I’m pressin', pressin', I’m pressin', I’m pressin' toward the mark!

Verse 1:
Where should I start? Oh yeah pressin' toward the mark of The High Calling
Labor of love for The Lord cause he caught me when I was falling so for get balling
If I obey He’ll exalt me/ My eyes have seen The Light, so I serve Him you can’t fault me
He has also shown me the end of a thing!
Holy is the King of Kings. I’m playing on a winning team
So I press, press through the trials and the stress
I give God my best and don’t try to please the rest
And in turn he gives me strength to pass every test
and His righteousness covers my chest like a vest
I’m on a quest and my goal is to reach the Kingdom
entering into His courts with praise and greet our Father with singing because I’m….

Chorus (1x)

Verse 2:
I’m like the little engine that could or better yet that can
With more power than superman because I serve the Great ‘I AM’
He is my strength, because without Him I would be weak
He is my every word, because without Him I couldn’t speak
I’m attacking the Game in Yeshua’s precious name
the Messiah sent through Judah to deliver us from flames
Holding the blood stained banner in memory of His pain
I tote my cross daily of Jesus I’m not ashamed
I also pray in your name that I labor not in vain
and I vow not to put you under favor for me or fame!
You are the God that I claim/ reaching the lost is my aim
to people that don’t understand, it’s a spiritual thang!
I’m in the studio grinding/ putting it down with this rhyming
with God’s perfect timing/ it’s all training never trying
I’m succeeding in all thangs through Jesus Christ
and now there’s steak with the beans and rice because I’m….

Chorus (1x)

Verse 3:
God’s grace keeps me, and The Holy Ghost compels me
He gives me instructions and I listen to what He tells me
He keeps me up on game and His power will never fail me
By His wisdom I won’t fall for what the devil try to sell me
I’m reaching the youngsters but it’s a hard battle fought
I take them and school them about traps before they get caught
I hope they don’t think of themselves more highly than they ought
Then they can’t be taught that they were slaves that were bought
At a costly price. Man it must be nice!
To go from the gutter most to utter most over night
And serve The Lord of Host and please your Creator
turn to a lover from a hater in fellowship with your Maker
His presence will take a gangster and turn him into a Quaker.
Make a Holy Ghost roller up out a Harlem shaker
now that’s flavor for you to run and tell your neighbor
No matter what you’re going through Jehovah Nissi is able because we….

Chorus (1x)

COME BACK

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)


Verse 1:
Now when I say I love you it’s not lip service its from the heart Lord
Cause you first loved me, from the very start Lord
Even when my decisions wasn’t very smart Lord
and when the sin-o-meter was bustin' off the chart Lord
You quenched every arrow and fiery dart Lord
Your Holy Ghost is a seal which means we’ll never part Lord
Nothing hidden from you not even a fart Lord
The assignment’s been handed down I’m a play my part Lord.
It’s basic mechanics, like a horse and a cart Lord
Your salvation is free I ain't got to work hard for it
But I got my hand to the Gospel plow full speed ahead, I’m a floor it!
Faith with out works is dead and your voice I just can’t ignore it
I can hear you calling come back to Me!
Stop the blasphemy and spit this rap for Me!
Put the game on smash for Me, clean up the trash for Me,
because the worlds a catastrophe! Come on!

Chorus:
Come back to me!
(Can you hear Him calling?)
I’m begging you please
(Can you hear Jesus calling your name?)
Come back to me! I want you to…Come back to me
(Can you hear Him calling)
I’m begging you please
(Can you hear Jesus calling your name?)
come back to me. I want you to……

Verse 2:
This song is for hustlers and paper chasers that be on the grind Lord
And them single parents looking for a piece of mind Lord
And jackers that’s eyeing me for a piece of mine Lord
and street walkers selling their body for a piece of dime Lord
To that twelve year old girl thinking that she fine Lord
looking in the mirror spending to much time Lord
To the youngster watching his daddy and want to be a crime lord
to the ones who get beat when they praise You like it’s a crime Lord
To that freshman in high school trying to shine Lord
and the kids in the suburbs trying to rhyme Lord
And the ones seeking your face and trying to find Lord
have mercy and show them personally that you are a kind Lord
I walk by faith! The world thinks I walk blind Lord
but I can see the end they running out of time Lord!
This is for the lost sheep so don’t sleep your soul cant afford it
And to my Christian brothers and sisters His voice we cant ignore it!

Chorus (4x)

H.G.P (Holy Ghost Power)

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)


Chorus:
It ain’t nothing but The Lord up in here.
If He be for us than who should we fear?
It’s The Holy Ghost Power! The Holy Ghost Power!
We need it every second every minute every hour!
It ain’t nothing but The Lord up in here.
If He be for us than who should we fear?
It’s The Holy Ghost Power! The Holy Ghost Power!
We need it every second every minute every hour!

Verse 1:
If you put your hands in the air you can feel His power
the atmosphere is right for a Holy Ghost shower
We need you every second ever minute every hour
to instruct our steps and rebuke the devourer
Your known for turning the sweet up out of the sour
whether you walking down the street or riding in your Eddie Bower
You are the paracletos meaning you walk along side
Your name is a strong tower where the righteous hide, but!
It ain’t nothing but The Lord up in here
if You be for us than who should we fear?
You cleaned off our eyes so we can see clear
we don’t need no drugs don’t need no beer
Cause we full of New wine that comes from the true vine
it’ll renew your mind and its stronger than moonshine
So take time, to believe Him with me
and in the name of Jesus you can receive Him with me!

Chrous (1x)

Verse 2:
Now these people ain’t drunk like you suppose
this is what was spoken of by the prophet Joel
It shall come to pass that in the last days
That The Lord will pour out His Spirit in many ways
And your daughters and sons are going to prophesy
and God is not a man that He should lie
The young men are going to see visions
some of earthly things and some of Kingdom living
And the old men are going to dream some dreams
so respect your elders they done seen some things!
I’m so glad, I’m down with the winning team
and The Holy Ghost will help me to remove the beam
From my eye so in turn I can help my neighbor
then introduce them to my Lord and Savior
Fellowship with the Son is fellowship with your Maker
souls are getting saved from Green Acres to the Jamaica’s

Chorus (2x)

EVERY TIME - Feat Whitney Weston

Written By: DREYSON CLARK (DOUBLE PORTION)


Chorus:
Every time I turn around
Every single time I turn around you are blessing me!

Verse 1:
Every time I turn around a blessing can be found
when I fell down you picked me up off the ground
And your grace never ceases to amaze me or astound me
thank you for the angels you placed all around me
Thank you for your Word it shape me and remake me
and it nourish my soul and it sure is tasty
It keeps me focused when your blessings over take me
so I can stand firm when the enemy try to fake me!
Under the shadow of your wing I abide in safety
passing 3rd I’m headed home and I slide in safely
You blessing me in they face and I’m knowing they hate me
But I’m so into you I ain't had time for them lately
You had your hands on me from before I was a baby
before I lost my dad and started acting all crazy
Followed after the world and tried to become shady
but I’m the clay and you are the Potter look at what the Father made me!

Chorus (1x)

Verse 2:
I can’t believe what you did you had love for the kid!
So I place no one above and our love isn’t hid
It’s the least I could do just to honor you
and show my appreciation for what you had to go through
To redeem me from a curse/ my future was a hearse
I put you first and you blessed me with a wife that’s a nurse
And two wonderful kids and a beautiful church family
to God be all the glory and the devil can’t stand me
I’m seeking the kingdom and my desires are added to me!
When I let Jesus lead everything is all groovy
Now he directs my steps and my life’s like a movie
In the House of the Lord Goodness and mercy pursue me
Forever and ever that’s a long time
so I’m not going to waste my breath and hit you off with a long rhyme
I turned from my sin/ I was healed within
There was no way in the world I could win without Him

Chorus (3x)
