Time Travel (My Self-Produced Single)

This is a song about self-exploration and government conspiracies, as well as revolution, and metaphorically delving into the concept of being eternal and timeless, immortalized in the universe as a memory never forgotten.

*There is swearing, it is a rap song. Mature content and listening advisories apply here*

Completely produced by me, beats, rap vocals. I'm not the best when it comes to audio production just yet, but it's a process. I didn't get to focus on it from childhood due to school, but ever since after high school, (2013), I've been all music like my life depended on it.

My official rap name Is LYnK, which stands for "Learn Your New Knowledge."

The song itself is a mix of trap with adlibs, with lyricism and flow similar to Eminem, with lyrics being extremely poetic and deep.

It isn't really my genre, but the beats are good. Lyrics are okay, but I have a hard time reconciling a 'deep' or spiritual song with the word 'bitch' in it, lol. I would keep working on your rapping ability.

Good luck with the music.

Ya I agree take some of the cussing out. Doesn't really fit with your lyrics. I liked the beat and the flow wasn't bad either.

Did you even listen? I didn't even use the word bitch once in here. (adlibs aren't real lyrics, they're so people with small minds can just bump the beat and the adlibs and ignore the lyrics, as they always do) Here are the censored lyrics:

dum spiro, spero-while i breathe, i hope

cogito ergo sum-i think therefore i am

mens sana in corpore sano- a sound mind in a sound body

ne obliviscaris-do not forget

-living in a memory, endlessly attach the past
-when spittin' for a future ensuring that i can grab the cash
-the now is never here, i try to see it, it's already passed
-try to snatch the moment, but it's expanding just like a gas
-so i learned to make it, [....]and then elevate ****
-enhance the life that id hate if id never tasted that [....]
-pacing myself so the days are slower then my patience
-get impatient and anxious then use my brain to rearrange it
-take the anger and hatred (and) replace it with a greater good
-equate my favorite type of time wasting, just not by the books
-**** education, im educated, to the skies i look
-for aliens to save me, and take me to where the prize is took
-by aliens i mean sapiens in which i never met
-respect is hard when they dont get that a legend's heaven sent
-hella text, irrelevant, to you, to smoove it benefits
-novice experience, intelligence past the veterans
-how do we better this? what's the point of pressing on
-when i press my finger on the screen to type in every song
-they're never gonna hear me or listen til im expressing wrong
-then reject the concept that i project when im flexing strong
-but i ain't here to beg or plea, or have me seeming weak
-im just tryna get famous, cuz everyday is part of semen week
-i know i make a lot of jacking puns
-but sir jacks a lot jacks a lot so i rap to just jack **** up

-the world gets scary with each day that i pave
-i want a button to undo the unjust
-and i'm always tryna fly away
-but i guess i just wanna rise up, rise up

-**** the government and what it stands for,
-**** who governs this, and what he raps for
-**** who governs you, and what they act for
-**** these other moves, like man what was that for

-time travelling, when battling the mind
-handling rhymes that lack design, it's whatever fractions that divide
-grabbing the basket of my lines and watch the blackness refract into a magnet and become shrapnel, attackin' I.

-history repeats itself, it's just a futuristic past
-never learned my lesson, it came with too many different tasks
-now im repenting for envisioning light, and living black
-so, **** a message, im just tryna keep lynk intact
-bleak when the system snaps, should've seen and fixed the cracks
-but now i bleed til i lose energy
-and have to re-get me back
-when the soul's depleted, a new host is needed
-then the ghost will float into a dome that can hopefully feed it
-my physical's an obstacle that only death's defeating
-but i defeat death by giving life to beats when i be-gin
-being a being in which you are not seein'
-like i am fleeing, like a free man's first dreamed wish
-rhyme schemes will leave fire fiends
-not able to burn my league
-down, grinding, a league of my own, so remind lynk, now, to mind me,
-i might be king of my throne,
-rewinding time's a no, so, i need to fly, please go

(hook again)

-revolution's evolution, the only solution to our community's pollution
-of the system we using
-take communion with my music, cuz i eat these other spewers,
-but it doesnt really do **** as long as the flaws influence
-russia and chinas moving together to ****ing nuke us
-destroy the earth we knew and conquer the space we aint used to
-microchips in our vaccines, if you ask me, **** is stupid
-and the way they got the news, the truth is never viewed, it's foolish
-the internet is watched, so if you try to learn you stopped
-manipulating waves til your brain melts or pops
-place a shottie in your house, nsa calls the cops
-cia takes em out, then they blame you on the spot
-man, this mainstream plot must really just decease
-**** peace, it cant arrive until the war wants to leave
-we in a battle where we're sheep to sheeps in wolf clothing
-9/11 was the first step on the staircase to baloney
-the government could blow me, im sick off just off the doming
-let me ask them for recordings that they saved, maybe they can loan me
-cuz i never press record when im chillin, spittin', smokin'
-smokin' gun, obamas holding, he's doing it for the fortune
-his ego just wont let go of him
-we sinking so slowly, when we hit the bottom we wont know it
-and when you notice, you've already drowned, cuz we all soulless
-and i got the antidotic potion, but just be careful of overdosing

I'm trying to curb down on the cursing, but I got into rapping by battle rapping and making diss tracks just to make a name for myself, but the listens died down when I stopped the drama. I used to curse almost every bar, now I can go a full verse without doing it. Thanks for the feedback though.

Ya but you leave out the " that's Latin bitch" and the echos of a voice saying to suck my d In the very beginning.

Those are adlibs, for fun. In the type of music that's prominent now, it's all about the beat and things that can grab people's attention. Although it doesn't fit the song's main theme, it fits the current schema of today's rap era, and how am I going to make it if I don't make what attracts the masses?

At least I'm still being myself in the main course of the song. Adlibs don't mean anything to me, I usually say stupid things just to please my friends because although I take music seriously as an art form, it's good to let loose. If I wanted to be 200% serious and boring all the time, I'd go into another genre.

That is fair, it just takes away from your deep and poetic lyrics that you are shooting for at the same time is all i am saying.
And ya I don't listen to the newest era rap. Tend to listen to the old stuff.
Jedi mind tricks, deltron 3000, people under stairs Living legends to name a few
Oh and if you want some revo rap i hope you know of Immotal technique.
Oh and you might want to edit your above post, see a pretty big t&c violation.

Of course I know of Immortal Technique. I also am influenced by Raekwon and Wu Tang Clan.
Can you give me a hint to the violation? Is it a portion of the lyrics that needs to be censored entirely? I censored all the words.

Edit: Never mind, I think I found it. Censored lyrics promoting drug use. I feel like this site is run by Stalin the way I have to censor expression in a country based upon freedom of self.

Not bad friend, but I do agree about the cussing, can't have too much, or else it retracts from your point IMHO. I'm a big fan of AOTP, Wu-tang, Living legends, People under the stairs, Del the funky homosapien(Deltron 3030), Immortal Tech, etc. And some of your lyrics remind me of these guys. So keep it up man, practice makes perfect as they say. But remember always have fun with your music!

I was trying to help you out, friend. I did listen, but the ad-libs as you call them were the first thing that stuck out to me. I hear that and I am shut down or changing the channel. Just saying.

Again, good luck.
