Biography

Born in Rochester, N.Y. and currently residing in Atlanta, Spiryt was influenced by her older brother, and started rapping at the age of ten. A pure lyricist from the start she used her creative abilities not only to showcase microphone genius but also to write inspirational poetry and compositions. Her first literary achievement came in the forth grade winning the Principle’s Award, awarded for excellence in writing composition.

Mastered beyond the pen Spiryt has the divine ability to entertain. Her favorite entertainers ranges from Doug E. Fresh to Michael Jackson. The progressive emcee states, “ I love music in all its forms from old to new school, thought to conception, rock to opera.” Well-rounded and versatile Spiryt will appeal to the young and young at heart.

Inspired by a variety of artist the most intriguing is King David. Spiryt explains “He did everything with his heart. He fought battles, wrote Psalms, danced, sang, prayed, and praised God.” Her passion clearly goes beyond the music field and into the consciousness of life. “I would like to be remembered for the things I’ve accomplished musically, but more so for helping people along this journey.”

Surprisingly Spiryts’ most prize possession isn’t her rhyme book but rather an intangible quality: honesty. “As long as your honest with yourself and stay true to the music, everything will take care of itself.” Spiryt is what real artistry is made of.

Lyrics

Try Love

Written By: Ardrina 'Spiryt' Porter

Intro
Try Love
In the mist of wars and rumors of wars, we need to love our neighbor as our self

Verse 1
I'm playing with weird science but i didn’t need the clone
Got team chemistry on a stage all alone
Like Tyrone get them lines on your own
Think Sean Combs and get me a partner at home
I’m Grown and as a Queen, need a King on the throne
You know this life thing can get cruel in the zone
I see t.v. be romancing my dome
I’m sorry Stevie but the sandman gone
I guess turbulence left my sand castle blown
I roam, I know its hard to get calls on my phone
Talk to my girlfriends, like Mya, Tony, Lynn, and Joan
They Spiryt girl, that's just the pain that was sown
Like payback when the grim reaper come and get his loan
You should have, tried love and now them games make you moan
Not the bone, soup and salad make you foam, try it maybe your diet
Help your love to be shown

Hook
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love

Verse 2
Look into the smile of a child and you will see they innocence
Wondering how we went from there to menaces
Maybe a victim of the tenements
Maybe curriculum is to keep us all in bad predicaments
Stagnating our ligaments, my culture bereave and grieve
More then 911 sentiments, faces all cinnamon
Its bad plus sad when we trade the soul for Benjamin
Not just hip-hop the world should be listening
Not your judge cause I'm the first this verse is mentioning
Difference divide the nation, from the block to the globe
You can see the love hate relation, Mary called it hateration
And if not careful we could all end up with abrasions
Change the world my daughter raised in
And hopefully she'll find the grace, grandmothers found so amazing

Hook
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love

Verse 3
The absence of love is the presence of hate
And if I die before I wake hope to be found
Inside the pearl gates
So while Im on turf, heaven is the mind state
And I state my words, carefully cause you can speak fate
So I ryhme, I thank GOD that mine great
And honestly I dont mind if you imitate
My free style allow me to innovate
As I enter your mind I chill out and I renovate
I meditate, on top of the world still got to elevate
Talk to GOD, me and my people still gotta conversate
Roll dolo you know I still gotta compensate
Though the love is free, they charging me to put food on my plate
So I got to go to the show and I demonstrate
Without the picket sign call my people to assimilate
Its either that or watch them scatter and disintegrate
Man to man or Zone these words guaranteed to penetrate

Hook
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love
Now I think to myself and I'm saying I should have tried love
End of the road its either go, or goodbye love
This for the globe, my soul saying to try love
No playing, young nation, start saying, try love

Verse/Refrain
Now in order for peace to exist in the land
It takes more then raising two fingers in our hand
Its love for the Lord, then our fellowman
Cause right now things is shaky like gelatin
If you don’t try love, then try to understand
Man don’t make love, its love that make the man
Love aint without, cause it comes from within
Man don’t make love, its love that make the man
