Biography

Obnoxious is much more than a uniquely written word, a company or even the next major movement in hip-hop. Obnoxious is a way of life literally! Obnoxious is made up of the colorful characters of "L.A.W"(Live.Awareness.Within) and "REALLY REAL"(Righteous.Energy.Attracts. Light..Love..Life). These two handle the hip-hop, while the 3rd member of the group "LaiLani Mosely" handles the melodic Rhythmic and Blues sounds of the music. Together with their unique personalities and drawing on their hard walked paths of life, combined with their insightful views of reality, the members of the group unite with Producer extraordinaire "Dublin Beats" (San Anselmo,ca) to create music that brings hip- hop back to its essence and at the same time takes it to new levels. If one was to try and draw a comparison that would be somewhat accurate you could say that OBNOXIOUS could be compared to the Fugees with a sprinkle of Outkast topped off with a little N.W.A. Co-founding members of the group "LAW" and "REALLY REAL" have taken the major negatives of there lives, which include both serving 5 year prison terms for armed robbery and LAW defeating a 15year to Life sentence, and created a positive outlet. What the word OBNOXIOUS means letter by letter describes how the members view hard times .Overcoming.Barriers.Navigating.Obstacles.Xunkown.Initiating.Opportunities.Using.Spirit = O.B.N.O.X.I.O.U.S. And since everyone experiences hard times in their life, everyone must have a little OBNOXIOUS in them. The group is taking a uniquely independent route to emerging into hip-hop. The group has purchased their own tour bus and plans to travel nation wide and reach the people in a way that has never been accomplished.

Lyrics

Heart of a Child

Written By: Obnoxious

[Chorus][LaiLani]
Back in the day when i was young
I'm not a kid anymore
but some day's i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore

[LAW}

So many answers to find so many questions to ask
and i cant even count the blessings ive had
things have effected my past
finally led me to the truth at last
and i shall sit and wonder what the future has
i wish i could view the past or just go to it
before i heard the beat picked up a pen and wrote to it
get a blunt and a light the picture book well go through it
old hair cuts and cloths lookin so stupid
Dr Suess books that i thought were so useless
but i guess they really weren't you listen the flow prove it
before bush officially waged war on me
back when loving my brother wasn't such a foreign thing back when we followed our roots and hunted for truth
how OG Bobby Johnson touched us all after the Deuce
Rodney King happened to him it could happen to you
Evolution or Revolution wont be the last thing i do

[Chorus][LaiLani]
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore

[Really Real]

My hand has a mind of its own its psychic
writin rhymes before i think i might never see nothing like it
matter of fact my pen press rewind
travel with Really Real as we go back in time
before i was Big Will i was on a Big Wheel
even when i was three i was still a big deal
and back then all the kids was hateful
i was in the front yard with the castle of Gray Skull
after that you gotta feel what im sayin'
i protested recess i wasn't playin
while yall was flyin kites i was riding bikes
on the paper route tryna see my pockets get right
wiser than what my age suggested
cause when i wanted something i would manifest it
it started off with them bmxs
twenty years later see me in Lexus

[Chorus][LaiLani]
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore

[LAW]

What if we could go back to essence and get knowledge itself
would that help you acknowledge yourself
you gotta crawl before you walk walk before you run
remember writing on the sidewalk with chalk in the sun
plenty of fun
but today there's many a guns to choose from
just as easy to make a life as it is to lose one
many different views to choose from
no more i bet you cant rub you belly pat your head and chew gum
nowadays its filled with comments like life's pathetic
what ever happened to pinchin booty's playing hide and go get it
did we catch a glimpse of the truth grow old and forget it
this is pathetic the American dream never get it
thats exactly what is a dream don't you get it
but never sweat it heavens what you make it in the
present
here's a lesson you control whatever your destined
god and you are one go head and count your blessings

[Chorus]
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
Back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore
but some days i sit and wish i was a kid
back in the day when i was young
im not a kid anymore anymore anymore anymore
