MEDIA QUOTES
“…mixing a wall of head-nodding noise and some lickety-split quick rhymes, “Bricks to Bmore” is as energetic as energetic is.” – BP, Urb Magazine

“Boom. Bap. Boom. Bap. The sound of real, golden era hip hop has returned. With a decidedly pleasing throw-back approach these two Baltimore Mcs team up with DJ Addikt on their latest EP, “Bricks 2 Bmore” and bring tight rhymes and with back to the forefront. After hitting #1 on college radio hip hop charts…the pair are poised to make the ‘old skool’ new again with their talent-fueled return to simplicity.” – Schuyler Lindberg, Urb Magazine Next 1000

“…Rather than embracing one of the personas MC’s held during the Golden Age, Pro & Reg adopt a vast range of styles and subject matter for their first full-length album, Life of a Vagabond, on Pro & Reg Records. The two Baltimore MC’s shift from comedic party rap to political discourse without losing a step…Pro & Reg deliver a rapid fire flow that allows them to effectively adapt to each of their new sonic surroundings.” – Urb Magazine Review

Reveloution

Written By: Big Pro

Weve had up to here with created lies for fear
That’s Instilled into our ears from who we call our piers
They over see our structure while we hooked on gas and oil
As a whole our country is a junkie but that plan has foiled
Congress is a mess, a sea of incomplete laws and flaws
With more time spent on the campaign crawl ready to call
Around for more dough companys invest
In politicians so that they pass laws for corporate intrest
Fuck the machine that we feed, a network of lust and greed
They keep us in our small worlds and feed us TV
It’s time to strike back We ain’t taking it no more
Let your country know that you know what were fighting for
A non renewable source that leaves our planet scorched
The one that makes it too hot to sit on the porch
Sweep it underneath the rug Our childrens world we fucked it up
For environment we need repuplican retirement.
This is not a hoax or liberal world we live in
Republicans should not have power we need a new beginning
They bailing on Bush why can’t you stick with your boy?
I told you in 2000 that he’d leave this world destroyed
It’s the party that I’m bashing their only out for dough
And they got broke white people following the same road
Rural America just don’t get it, they getting shit on too
But they see that texas money and their like “this could be you”
So they roll with the right wing thinking that it might bring
More money through less taxes but they’re all lost in the hyping
It’s suppose to boost your spending to keep us in assention
But everytime they get power we end in a recession
They create wars to keep power instilling fear in all our people
We are not equal or free…. just enslaved to evil
And ya’ll can’t see it so I’m bout to get militant
Not hippys at a ralley angry fighters you’l be dealing with
Of course that’s the rage we locked up in a cage turning the page
Discussing our ways, only thinking about ourselves and finding way to get paid
Back to engage in our lives we portray stuck in the matrix
Not the movie our country The real one that shapeshifts
I stay swift and progress filtering the gossip
And live life in natures Eye Proton the Profit
We need a plan so I was like okay I will be the man
I’ll put it down in lahmens terms so you can understand.
We ask the gas and oil industry to find a new energy source
And have ford and chevy create vehicles that support
We keep the same companys in power and slowly change our energy
So we don’t rely on roughe nations for chemical dependency
Break our addiction for fossil fuel and not be some stubborn muels
With simple views we see all Just like I can see you
We deglobalize on imports that don’t rationalize
Reeconomize our enterprise to save our childrens lives
Oil is our new crimson tide, it’s composed by life
And there isn’t enough left to justify the pain and strife
The world is bigger then a fight between who was wrong or right
This is bigger then a candidate or terrorist strike
It’s your childrens future that’s finished and now the time for action
Now not later lets optimize and use some passion
Instead of pointing fingers ct the mansion
Instead of pointing fingers at the rich mans mansion!!!
Reveloution

A Pro

Written By: Pro

Have a little rhythm given you a feeling for opinion
your own dominion get yours or not the world is still spinning
we winning and grinning past days of sinning living the life
cause we’ve driven and risen through all the missions and sights
Listen I’m right If you don’t trust yourself who you gonna trust
This isn’t hype, witness the gifted ripen the mics
It’s pro for the pro man, pro testing the program
Infiltrating with experience knowledge cause Pro plans
Pro means so many things so just dub it the truth
It means me it means you and all the members of your crew
If you’re a Pro you set your aim higher then you have to
blast through competition or whoever channel through
don’t let your stress handle you manage your own self control
analyze strategize and build with positive goals
and we all veer off and play the negative roll
But a Pro steers back cause that world can get cold

We starting the new mold and it comes from the sole
Some get it some don’t weather you young or you old
You got to be Pro it separates you from the pack
It’s the way to go it’s as simple as that

A pro is punctual, either on time or early
Deserving the earning and learning to take praise from the worthy
Not concerned with the rumor mill that’s churned by the dirty
Cause he’s too fair and too good he’s the man for the journey
A Pro remains humble bringing the best out in others
Theres a Pro in all beings some just have not discovered
Together we suffer take turns when cooking the supper
No mistake this is great like the bond between lovers
When you hit rock bottom and all you gots each other
For all sisters and brothers all fathers and mothers
We got to reach for stars not life behind bars
I know times is hard we got to take charge for ours
And teach the young to follow in a world that’s hollow at times
Cause you can’t touch the real if your always online
Follow my lines, I hope it guides you for piece of mind
even though I’m not positive every time I rhyme

Hook twice

We in a new time where theres new ways to shine
Skip the misery check history don’t live on rewind
Sip on the wine don’t guzzle it’ll poison the mind
Slowen down your efficiency and leaving you blind
My reason and rhyme ain’t typical it instills the ritual
To break habitual critical individuals
Who remain enslaved to residuals it’s pitiful
Just come a new what the hell else you got to do
Either the world has gone crazy or you ain’t done shit lately
Get with it but don’t trust it our society’s shady
I’m a real trooper riding but your laws I don’t confide in
I’m no fool so it’s cool I’m still digging for diamond
But If I get it through rhyming I’m a dip to an island
With a chick that’s legit that can listen to my whining
Cause she knows I’m just venting cause thers no time for crying
No time for lying in the eye of the most high we trying

Let's Go

Written By: Pro

Lets Go
Hello, I’m the Pro sinister with flow that grow
It blossoms while they play possum cause they don’t know
Bigger then you town, coast country or your planet
We connect with respect from pacific to atlantic
Putting emcees in check cause they take things for granted
Like the road that was paved got us enslaved to our habits
But that’s not the topic I just came say Hi
So bump the shit in your whip for this trip just ride
I’m from B-more but California I see ya
On some east meets west like sushi and tequila
Sangria in the shade serving funky lemonade
Freestyle renegade but these writtens get me paid
So sway to the track Craig Rip got my back

To get a piece of the light I’m just letting um burn

Turn my song up let it pump and sit on the curb

You're All I Have

Written By: Pro and Reg

I fall straight to her clutches better myself but she calls my name
Put her back on the shelf yup that’s my game
I’m losing my health but the world is strange
I’m turning the page I’m burning with rage
Cause I lost my wealth like I’m begging for change
Now I’m sitting on the ave mad sad thinking bout my younger days with a hunger pain
Locked in a cage, should have found my way say hi to the bad guy with too much time to play, I melt away, iv’e gone a stray, in a tomb I lay but just mentally
I got to get up get it right grab my life grab the light I have to fight for the right like yesterday
Do it my self now for a better way and stop whiling out like it’s my destiny
but this worlds so cold and I feel so old and she’s right there to ease my pain
but she keep me on pause and I’m gaining new flaws I gotta have balls and break these chains
yes I can No I can’t here we go That’s the chant
positive negative and I’m stuck with this tramp
who keeps feeding me leaving me stuck on the map
On a tread mill I stay theres no forward or back
Show me the way, I forgot where I’m at
dormant I stay in a loop I am trapped back
mesmorized by the fact I slack I’m fed with lies
I apologize To you whos true and no one else
So I’m stuck on you you’re my only help
Cause I’m living in horror cause I can’t face tomorrow
with this whore cause I know I can’t trust myself

hook Your All I have
Maybe we should break up
maybe we should be forever

At the back of the line circled by time I’m losing my face and I’m losing my mind
I travel unraveled with pains in my spine quuit my addiction of love intertwined I’m
On the road in brake up mode got to watch my back had to change my clothes
Can’t take control only two days out and I’m so alone the pain still grows
An overload my stomach burns so I yearn turn to the curb throw up hurting nerves
Showed up didn’t learn 2am calling her, atm funds deffered that’s how it goes
Borrow cash hurry back tap dat ass lifes back wifes back right track I don’t know
Counseling I go, cold turkey die slow, so we try another freak that ul get me off slow, So
She’s my Morphine but I don’t know her name so I call out to her and she looks at me strange
She tells me to go back trapped and I know that Go back I go flat where is this ho at/
Who has got my back man I don’t know the ones that my friends all feel like their foes
So I’m stuck on a journey and I don’t think it’s worthy someone pleas tell me form here where do I go
I Got to get control and slow my role set a goal start over and take life slow
Move on and get my scroughe on I don’t know how I cruise on but I know I can’t take it no mo
Please erase the data base so I can’t see her face can’t return to this place pack my bags post haste
And I’m outta this atmosphere outta here so sincere excuse me as I bow out now with no grace

Hey!

Written By: Pro&Reg

Cruising Bmore swagger use to burn l's with taggers
Now a days it doesn't even matter
respect to the elements all though the times are changing for the badder
Just keep moving on up the ladder/Hey

I'm hold my own do my thing and keep my head up
Even though this life feels like a set up and I'm fed up
Put my worries aside tell me who want ta ride
Ballin down 95 we be gettin live live
Grab a drink grab a girl hit the floor if you could
This is for the grown man in the hood trying to keep it good
Let's get loose and unwind like it's the weekend
so grab your girl or call the one you creep with
you know the one on the low like a dirty little secret
Unique with a party jam Pro is who you reaching
Sometimes Teaching but for now lets cool out
Ain't no need for you to pull the tool out, We partyin
Back to the front let me see your hands pump pump
This be that now shit twist of jazz and funk
that make you get down shit thats what I want
So go and turn the stereo up

So turn up the jam put your worries on the back burner
programmed to slam man number one rap server
here for the year bringing cheer skip the fear were
steppin to a sound underground to the clear ear
yes yall, won't fall tear it down to last call
then back to my crib liveing life by the night fall
party till the sunrise and pass me the hienikan
turn up the beat cause I think it's time to rhyme again.
