I wrote this by relating the lyrics to being a working professional that gravitates towards a peaceful hobby. lyrics [Chorus (Scratched) - 2x] *Professional slash Hobbyist* *Yo, P the Wyse, show em how we grind, precise writing* *With this mic, I'm God* *I put words together like Peter Jennings, aight* [Verse 1] I do this for fun, sometimes I would like to be known A king dethroned, like Lebron without a ring so... I practice daily, with no monetary focus I sway the hopeless, with 16 lines of dopeness// Do I need to rhyme? Why I am I speaking lines? Work, then school, rhyming in my leisure time The ultimate outlet, to release my mind This is love right here, yes the sweetest kind// Strive for printed articles when I freelance Interact with the crowd, astound, when I meet fans Greet, seek, finds things that are unique Spread the name around, thus expand thy reach// Give one hundred percent, nothing less Research or Google, I'm trying to be in depth Working on a new direction with an instep Writing in my dreams and letting the pen rest// [Chorus (Scratched) - 2x] *Professional slash Hobbyist* *Yo, P the Wyse, show em how we grind, precise writing* *With this mic, I'm God* *I put words together like Peter Jennings, aight* [Verse 2] Blue collar, professional slash hobbyist A junior reporter with big dreams of politics Toddlers, Tiaras, contracts and contacts To big city dreams, people saying model this// Hustle hard, with a squad, yes the grind exists Be a leader, not a follower, fam find a niche Climb a fence, forget useless limitations This is penning greatness, next step innovation// Life on pause, with this mic I'm God Nah, before the mic gripping, I write these bars The pencil is my tool, yes my instrument The notebook, the streetwalker and I'm pimping it// Kicking simple scripts, the opposite of intricate Stay the course, no matter how bad the mission gets Be patient and wait your turn A hobbyist with the grace to learn With the grace to learn// [Chorus (Scratched) - 2x] *Professional slash Hobbyist* *Yo, P the Wyse, show em how we grind, precise writing* *With this mic, I'm God* *I put words together like Peter Jennings, aight* [Verse 3] It's Earl from 8 to 4, Patrick from 5 to 10 Praverb when the rhymes begin Shows lack, I don't have the time for them Ten people in the audience, nine are friends// No money from the door That means no gas No merch for your show When you perform last Thoughts of robbing a bank with no mask Run rampant in my mind, sheesh, at least I'm recognized// [Bridge (Scratched)] *Recognize* *Living proof, what I spit it the booth* *My verbals known to crush bones* [Chorus (Scratched) - 2x] *Professional slash Hobbyist* *Yo, P the Wyse, show em how we grind, precise writing* *With this mic, I'm God* *I put words together like Peter Jennings, aight*

All too often rap monikers seem entirely arbitrary to the actual content of the music that follows. Ruthlessly bucking this trend of empty promises is Singapore Kane, whose aggressively crisp delivery swats the versatile array of beats featured on his fifth solo project, Wrath of Kane. A veteran of the Boston rap scene, Singapore Kane’s latest effort hears him coupling his bent for street-centric battle raps with socially conscious, yet realistic, commentary. On tracks like “Ill Bomb” and “Dividends”, Kane nods at his boom-bap roots with unrelenting lyrical vigor. Meanwhile Kane’s flow is able to melodically slow it down for brutally vivid reflections on tracks like “Outside the Margins” and “Mad at Me”—perhaps Kane’s personal version of couples therapy. Meanwhile, Kane’s heartfelt “MLK Tribute”, which Kane recorded after a sudden jolt of inspiration, caught ears and hearts across the rap world on Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday. While the Wrath of Kane mixtape showcases the Boston MC’s proficiency at conquering industry beats, Kane also stays true to his Beantown roots, employing original bangers from Bostonian producers like Purpose, Allegory and Alexander the Great, all of whom lay down gully East Coast fire. Meanwhile, Kane’s gritty narratives collide with original Cali-tinged soul from West Coast producers like TKSTR (“Outside the Margins”) and Lee Bannon (“Dividends”). And, as Singapore Kane readies his next project (an EP of entirely original production), living-legendary producer DJ Premiere blesses the remix to “Play It”, where Singapore Kane’s prowess shines alongside other lyrical heavyweights Royce Da’ 5’9 and fellow Boston MCs, Big Shug and Termanology. Across the board, whether he’s musing on the ups-and-downs of relationships and life or reveling in the ascension out of poverty, Wrath of Kane is the latest offering of explicitly real hip-hop from one of Boston’s illest and most promising wordsmiths. credits released 07 March 2011

Fourth track off The Gospel is FREE 2 that features guest verses from California firespitter Blame One and Canada's own Theo 3 (two of my favorite emcees). The track is produced by Teddy Roxpin and features cuts from Dj Grazzhoppa (enjoy). Basically I wanted to present a track that revolves around emcee skills and lyricism. lyrics Verse 1: (Praverb the Wyse) P spit fire and brimstone, the messiah has been home We can battle, no need to rattle like Jim Rome You not on my level you just like the devil with metal Playing Russian roulette, I'll let you spin chrome// Go ahead send clones, I'm ready for war You show up with pocket knives I got machetes in store Go ahead pull for your heat you stupid to me Expose you foes like entering a pool with a leaf// I'm an adult you sounding quite juvy to me You not influencing me cause your music is weak Think about it, I don't need the ink to mouth it I attack the pad, letting the words sprinkle around it// I'm calling you out, you squirm like an earthworm Involved in a drought I'm the one that peeps keep talking about P the smooth type, I seduce mics 6'4" and unsigned I guess I'm the new hype// Verse 2: (Blame One) Yo, yo I'm a master craftsman, word archaeologist Digging up the spirit deep within, go ahead and follow this Pace, the knowledge to race, my predecessor dead a lesser Rhyme professor, the true pen and paper time investor// In my prime I design the pressure I'm putting emcees under the, I'm the lighting and thunder kind of fresher Than your average mortal from the way I hold the mic I drop jewels, still cuss you out like I was Dolomite// I steady rise, while you rapidly demise While you rappers full of lies, I just build with P the Wyse Enterprise, now enter the eyes of an assassin I move like a samurai slow with no compassion// For the wack I'm attacking cause I flex to win Pass the sword, my son sharpen for your next to kin And it likes that, sorry but it is what it is I stay ahead of these kids and my legacy lives (rock on)// Verse 3: (Theo 3) Yo Forget Captain save a hoe, Dr. take a life, savior like Mary had to look up in the manger twice Say goodnight, BYE BYE, 5 guys afraid to fight Act tough but couldn’t buy Pride if they were Dana White// y’all cats know it’s Pros vs, Joes Lift a JVC, spike TV’s on your toes till you bleed out your nose for foes got flows that aim at your cavalry, average emcee// he be Patrick Dempsey bullets Grey’s Anatomy pull it, names a casualty drop like stock act tough call your bluff and raise y’all like a family top 5 spot think not y’all are fantasy// Cameron D only act up where the cameras be, damage me, please y’all are mellow like Anthony. I’ll put wings on your shoulders no Randall C, Stay humble that’s word to Prince, F#ck Vanity//

Second track from The Gospel is FREE 2 that features an amazing guest feature from Detroit emcee Nametag. The track is produced by Teddy Roxpin and features cuts from Dj Grazzhoppa (enjoy). I did not record any solo material in 2009 and I wanted to prove that I could come back with heat in 2010. lyrics Verse 1: (Nametag) Back with heat, Tag body bag a beat That emcee that'll prove I'm that elite Usually stay ahead of those that compete I be on that left expressway traffic speed// Yes indeed, I lyrically stab a track and leave it With an increase and massive bleeding Matter of fact I know that to most rappers I'm a headache I am quite sure it is aspirin needed// Describe me as intriguing Each line is steaming like a pot full of tea gets Your team gets fatigued, going against me And my whole legion, leaving the playing field uneven// Reality show for one season About me succeeding til I'm done breathing I'm a necessary instrument the drum needs me I'm sick I spit mumps and leave chumps feverish// [Chorus] 2x We got the rhymes, we more than stars Hitting competition with a load of bars Attacking the track, Tag and P It's 2010 and we back with heat Verse 2: (Praverb the Wyse) I am in a kill zone, reciting some real poems I won't lead you to death, P is no Jim Jones Seeking my calling, preach when I speak No need to be balling, cause he is no Jim Jones// Untamed beast, loose without a leash On streets I channel the, same emotion of Gemstones No Gemini, men will die, when the pen collides With the pad, leave em' toe tagged unidentified// Cold case, case closed, work the caseload search for higher powers, yes the one that Mase Knows Y'all lying, y'all scratching on that fake nose Treat your face like a vase cause we break those// Walk around with a lion's skin and ape bones Plus we entertain well we strive for great shows You want to collab, well the going rate grows To a large number, what you working late for?// [Chorus] 2x We got the rhymes, we more than stars Hitting competition with a load of bars Attacking the track, Tag and P It's 2010 and we back with heat Verse 3: (Praverb the Wyse) From VA to MI to Corpus Christi Jedi like mind state, the force is in me Brought the torches with me Set your body ablaze The crowd is amazed, they gaze at your crispy corpse// Check it, the odd ball in dodge ball In a dodge car, charged to challenge those in squad cars Eating emcees in an edible form It's P-Viz the Wyse, theoretically born (what)//

Proceed With Caution was conceived due to the awesome scratching ability of Dj Grazzhoppa. Dj Grazzhoppa has the ability to turn an ordinary track into a banger. The thing that makes him unique is the fact that he actually utilizes the lyrics from the track to create a scratch hook. lyrics Verse 1 (A.L. Laureate) Desire on the forefront Extensively expedient Drenching out of my forehead Heat waves and cold sweat I Attain clarification, in accordance to recordings leaving car speakers scorching// Never rest for a second with tutorage from the legends Taking crash courses my brain aches In depth study to salvage the good that remains Amending hip hop erasing the date rape// I’m steadfast with it, verbal artillery is out But I ain’t shooting to kill I let it set in your scalp Creep up in your brain and let it blend So sit and jot down the blueprints to my revenge// In the battlefield still getting tempted By these labels looking for they flagship apprentice I rather die thirsty next to water Knowing my lifelong thesis never once faltered// Verse 2 (Skyzoo) The human highlight reel, they pray that I might chill never happen I’m forever at it, and y’all forever addicts Nowadays with the rapping, I’m feeling so bored When I’m listening to y’all, that I rather flow backwards// Coach well as might I pro up and I No me let down it dumb can I I guess I’m leave it there And go and listen to Big wishing that he was here// Pick one of them, whether Smalls or L or Pun any one of dude Inspired by all three, I guess I’m something new I’m NY, suede timbs and all Best flow been mine, no grins involved// I got this; I did it before it became popular And I still get it, and all of them still watching huh It’s cool with me, as cool as I be I nevermind it, they all just influenced from me, you know// Verse 3 (Praverb the Wyse) I’m from the V dot A, home of the crack rap Influenced by Miles Davis and other jazz cats I pen a verse with no profanity So forget advising you, I label each song hazmat// So please proceed with caution Wear plastic gloves when my music leaves the walkman I’m a lyricist, y’all claim that your pen don’t write Every verse hits hard like a Kimbo right// I’m the future; I don’t need to lend no ice Cause I’m God’s son, I don’t want to be like Mike That’s another man; I got an arm like Rocket While y’all slow pitch tossing underhand// I stay positive; I always keep my head high Whether in Va, or chilling somewhere in Bedsty I heard a lot of dudes claim they the next guy Until they see my cd chilling in Best Buy//

By All Means was based on the concept of being prosperous and enduring amidst the economic cycle. Furthermore, the concept was applicable to hip-hop as well. We decided to present our life stories up to this point. The underlying theme for this song is based on perseverance and taking baby steps to achieve success. lyrics Verse 1 (Cayoz Da Beast) I was born April 24th, year 1989 Stepped on the rap scene like 04 or 05 But around 06 is when i met P the Wyse Wisdom’s Cafe showed he was a different league than I// Dropped Heart of the City right around the same time But my East 2 West joint had a way better vibe In 08 I soul searched & did an album on the side Suppressing the beast within was filled with nothing but strife// Still I took what i learned and i ran with the hype Then i dropped a mixtape with STILL FRESH full of rhymes 2009 I came back with the mixed vibes And word on the streets focused ready to get mine// A short time later I was hit with an invite To join the BrainStormers fam i was ready to rip mics And you know what they say son you never live twice So I took the invite and never once looked behind// Verse 2 (A.L. Laureate) In 2003 my stomach was uncovered It was a long procedure let me guide you through the hunger How could you press play when it was in disarray? If you love it you hate it, it works both ways// Rejected from the start didn’t make the numbers i expected It made listeners pass like the minutes do the seconds 7 albums recorded but deleted from hard drives The archives became the past where my heart hides// Moral in the toilet questions aroused doubts Flow is too weak My rhymes get lost in the beat If you listening and feel the sudden need to critique Go ahead cause you can’t hurt what you don’t see// Now it’s a new day BrainStormers we a fam Simultaneously creating fresh air for these fans We are forever one geared up for what’s ahead Just remember this is where we took our first steps Verse 3 (Praverb the Wyse) P is too spiritual, too conventional Need to think outside of the box, drop the lyrical Too emotional, he doesn't drop emotions The flow is ocean, I bear arms, overdosing// Critics be, critical of my energy Stating that I should be hype when I'm ripping on the mic But eventually, they understand that I won't force it Olympic runner, running swift, with the torch lit// 10 years immersed in the culture, with many mistakes Many plateaus, been stagnant with these rap flows Dreams of rocking a thousand or more To hole in the wall spots... The reality of these rap shows// Been promised a record deal and free beats Doing verses for free when I really need to sleep This lack of sleep carries over to my personal life Affecting my job performance and my search for a wife// credits
