My band is like the "The Roots" with a bit of "Outkast" & the bravado of Kanye West all in one! Not many hip hop acts incorporate the musicianship that me & my band "Tonight at Nine" bring to the table! This makes us a hit with the Urban and alternative crowds because we cover both aspects!

Lyrics

Hello

Written By: J.Rhodes

Opening: It's been a Minute Man like UMASS/ Where have I been what you ask?/ Well, just living life and doing me, not doing too bad/

Those that are familiar with me know that I'll blow ya mind/but there're still are some people thats listening to me for (the veery first tiiime"/

I pimps the pen, I makes the tracks I do it all/Say what's on my mind with no buffer like my named Lil Duvall/ urrrbody know me say I'm too Raw/ Haters wanna try but they can't come close/ No further introduction needed I'm J.Rhodes I wanna say

Hook: Hello- I'm J.Reezy and I makes the hottest beats I say
Hello- Give me a microphone you know that Imma eat they gone get
Caught up in the take over man it's right on Schedule
Promise, Promise, Promise, that them boys ain't on my level (repeat 1x)

Verse 1: Man where did the time go, I thought I had plenty/ Now I look up and I'm more closer to 30 than 20,/ lets see... I don't lost friends, I done lost sleep, I done damn near lost my MIND trying to make it in this industry

Lot of shit/politics/ and radio payola, but we fighting through the bullish/coming out with full clips/ and firing/ your spot at the top expiring/ instantly when I come in/ Doctor prescribe the vicatin/Painful/ Same ish all on the radio it's shameful/ They make a song you make one like it/ Where I'm from we call that biting/

I keeps my composure/ I'm focused/ on being the dopest/ the game is like Mervyns because it's /OPEN OPEN OPEN

and I'm finna claim my spot in it/I'm aiming for the top of it/ and bringing all my people in so they too can be prosperous/ take shots like Stojakavic/ but you ain't got a pot to piss?/ I coach my team like Popovich/ I promise their is no stopping this

Hook

Verse 2. Oh, I guess you mad at muah?/ Because your ish sub par?/ Got hatas feeling blue like those people on avatar/ and plus my flow so hard/yea yea yea yea so Hard/ but so Intelligent it's kinda like it passed the bar/

It's like I've come so far, but still I got so far to go/finna run my city like I'm working on my cardio/ All-Star team, doing All-Star thangs/So I guess it's only right we got the All-Star game/

I'm a Dallas Texas 80's Baby reppin mofo/I'm a piss me off you better find the exit Mofo/Tell them wack Mc's leave they rhymes at the do/ Or better yet, kill yaself on ustream so you just can't rap no mo!/

Yeah that's harsh, but I gotta be/, these dudes are nowhere hot as me/ The juggernaut is moving so you KNOW their is no stopping me/

Going for the jugular and thus we are not stopping/Until everyone that claims they're on the top are at the bottom/ Say!

Hook
