GET IT NOW, THE ITUNES LAUNCH Will be more for "Them" less for us. lol


i wanted to make a record that held some of the audio art that runs through my head. this EP was done with the understanding that i am making life difficult for reviewers, buyers, fans and subsequently me.

but, this is what came out.

this is a record that focuses less on a unifying theme nor pushes one form.

in the past we have mixed mediumed our releases but usually under one concept. my attempt this time was to make a bunch of music then create an EP of the best material i enjoyed.

i pray that was accomplished.

on the project I am rocking live; spitting a poem in the middle of cypher; singing about missing work to stay with a lover, with the snare drum absent; telling about my love for children over spacey jam by jonn nubian; getting electro-soulish to discuss sex; and, dropping some break beats that would make James Brown and Sade envious.

i had fun making all this music -- and i believe it shows!!

perfect way to end this project
foolish men
fool themselves
into thinking they
can acquire
your heart.

it's true they
can plan
as perfect
a plan
to know
your inner beauty

but the
breeze way
to your heart
is not through
your panties
or ,,,
your curved
soft lips

it's not
even through
your heart
no ....

it's not even
through your

it's through
the eyes
of a man
who understands
no man
can hold
your hands
through plans

and there are
reasons why
tulips are hugged
by you

they have lost
their insecurities

no more trying
to be roses...
