 Brunswick, Georgia, USA
SoloHip HopEDM

TKTRAV is H.P. Lovecraft's favorite rapper. Its as if an etherial entity from outside of time begins to channel through the lowest 808 kick drum and the highest hypnotic sine wave. With elements of Chillwave, dubstep, and beautiful Chaos, this is Cosmic hip hop. For the brilliant and for the dull.

Biography

"As a producer of five years, TKTRAV has experience in crafting musical expression in various genres. A wide range of sonic taste is what enables him to bring a very unexpected sound to the music scene at large. Sometimes dark, always fascinating, you'll never predict the visual display of his live performance. You can, however, expect that the mystifying presentation will not hide the brilliant sound that has already converted many. Trill style hip hop with a death metal attitude, this experience does not disappoint."

Lyrics

RENOUNCE (the Banishing)

Written By: TKTRAV

I RENOUNCE THEE, EVIL WORKINGS OF DEATH
I RENOUNCE THE SHADOW WALKING OF DEAD ONES
I REJECT THEE, DEMON WHORES OF THE (EARTH,)
I REJECT YOU VAMPIRES OF THE CONSCIOUS ONES

This is my testimony, mad black Arab trapped in the wilderness
too many books that I should not have read
Al Hazred will have passage
tell 'em what they wanna hear
tell them all the dead names
of the ones that they wont fear
they cant see or believe in demons
no Sigil magic will make it happen
ugh
testify
What's not dead can eternal lie
With strange eons death may die
subconscious predators
deep creeping metaphors
Incite the animals
spread out the tentacles
and bring out the Elder ones

Hark at the mountains of madness
strange sounds make the comfort vanish
Savages beat the drum
while the women gyrate for the graven idol
some things never change,
still sacrifice for the one not named
suddenly from beyond the ocean
subconscious gateway opens

who are you who are you?
they've waited so long
tell me you are the one who they seek and call
I've been waiting and waiting too
to kill your grip on my mind

The Pretty Monster

Written By: TKTRAV

This is time for all the visual efforts to pay off
this is the time to live up to expectation
This is the time to extend all the boundaries
this is the time to augment our reality
This is the time to pick up all your pencils
The time is now to draw out the rest of destiny
This is the moment I lift the sword to the sun
This time has dawned for the rising of the Golden one

I'm up and over it. Are you mad now?
did you bring about/ the tears now
flat out
is it bad out? I think its bad out
we should head out
or better yet
you head out
and leave all the shit that I paid for before we made out
And if you think that I'm playing around
I'm serious
I'm as serious as your brain is delirious, and sherlock holmes solved mysterious mysteries of jack the ripper, and your a webcam stripper
like lil wayne told you to lick the rapper, and so you licked the rapper
now there's a video out
wait, what, woah how did that get out

um well excuse my french
but could you please refrain from releasing that flatulence
of a voice that's a stench in my ears
its a choice not to hear
all the bullshit you spew
Had enough, how about you?
You're too dense to leave clues
Now I bid you adieu
Fuck you

Stark raving mad
like a little white kid in the grocery store who wants the skittles really bad
and his mom's like "no tyler put it back"
and he retorts with "fuck you bitch I wanted that"
now who's calling the shots?
the children are running the adults with the authority of cops
and politicians are bickering a lot
while the right wing terrorists empty the pot
neo nazi fascist timeline like twitter
observe the NSA as your babysitter
P.o.W. niggas not found, M.I.A
Get your door kicked down by the black Berets
for some stupid shit you typed in on Google
for a frugal man to disenfranchise the powers that be
from voting away your democracy

Chakra

Written By: TKTRAV

They tell you when to get up
they tell you when to sit down
they tell you shut down your soul
whenever I come around
They make you put up fence
and tell you not to resist
I bring you entire worlds
inside of your own existence
And when they feed you distraction
it don't make any sense
Your soul is the universe
you only use ten percent
And then the message appeared
when only God came near
You are the power they fear

OM KUNDALINI
THE CHAKRA

from the void I am born
into wave and particle
in the end created life
emerging an oracle
into the fabric of time
weaving an entire line
Vibrating into the dirt
ascending into the sky
Experience
importing, absorbing, recording
the roaring of billions of stories
of every form of life
Until we remember
that time
is just a state of mind

You Came To See Blood

Written By: TKTRAV

First saw her in the parking lot
Things that we said, they were more than not
3 cigarettes she was ballin' now
Dreams never came so we threw them out

But that there was my fault
and here I thought you would save us all
put you on a pedestal thats much to tall
didn't even know you were raised to fall

in the wake of the ashes
we break out the matches
and make out the static
that brings you to panic

so let it all out
tell me words you been thinking about
in through the ear in a minute its out
hoping one day you will figure it out.

I'VE SEEN YOUR PICTURES PAINTED IN RED
YOU PAINT ME SO CONFUSED
YOU CHANGED TO FAST
AND I WANT TO
MAKE USE OF WORDS
THAT LONG SO

You came to take blood
don't feel you/ no vision
You came to take blood

Your alarm bells
they should be ringing

Who are you

Written By: TKTRAV

save the truth for later
when you meet your maker
"who am I "
baby you should know for sure
"so you know when you know and you know?"
"Living the dream"
the illusion, baby
"tell me enough is enough i'm alone"
"living is easy when you're free"
what have you done baby?
"truly all that I wanted was love"
"Is there a meaning?"
the elusive MAYBE
"tell me God, do you want me to know?"

All I wanted was a love
I think I gave too much
kill it off just to cover it up
still drowning you can find me in the liquor store

I know it sounds bad
but it could be worse
simulating perfect in the mirror
takes it toll on your soul
trying to play the role here you go

and when you know
that everything is for the gold
even though
its only a stone
per -cep -tion is the antidote
now let the flow bring the anecdote

who are you now?
"I don't know"
who are you now?
"leave me alone me alone leave alone"
