If they show love, Ima show it back. If the catch is too small, Ima throw it back. I've done a lot, but I ain't got a lot to show for that. x2 a lot of things have happened since we last spoke. like smashed hopes. half empty? Naw the glass is broke. ...I'm the captain of this crashed boat..... and when its time to sink or swim I always choose to do the back float I know that not a lot of humans are as sharp as I am, my modesty's my greatest quality. It's not I'm lying, ..I know Im just alright with this art of rhyming, no I'm not applying myself, in fact I'm hardly trying but just imagine what would happen if I stuck to rappin, yo Id prolly have a helicopter and a couple mansions, guard dogs with a bunch of fans they love attacking Probably not, but its fun to imagine. I cant complain at where I'm at I'm just happy to be hear Id be ecstatic if we happened to have a repeat year, ....thanks to ProleteR I'm rappin to heaters while passing the reefer. man that's what I call having a breather. chorus bridge Its your story, frame it how you wanna frame it. I get the picture, but that doesn't mean I've gotta hang it. I used to be a mormon, saying things like "gosh & dang it" now I'm trying to rap while I act like I don't want to make it. Fuck a record deal,.... I only say that cause they haven't made the offer yet, I'm confident they never will. my only competition is my self from the year previous, its clear to me I have to fear greediness and steer clear from them devious types, and media hype, I'm booking my expedia flight immediately.... That's right, I'm leaving tonight, to find peace on a beach is where I'm needing to write so fly me to France, I think its time my life is enhanced, teach me all about fashion, lets go buy me some pants, There might be a chance, that I can finally find some romance with a fly little mami who invites me to dance. chorus x2

ProleteR Toulouse, France

It's already more than 10 years since ProleteR dropped his debut EP. The signature sound of the french Producer, made of banging hiphop beats and clever patchwork of wonderful jazz and swing samples, was the missing link between the underground beatmaking scene and electro swing music. Some of his contagious feelgood tracks are underground classics. ... more
