about

By definition 'Atonement' is about correcting a previous wrongdoing, so consider this the first step on the pathway to redemption for anyone whose been napping on M-Dot until now.

Ego & The Enemy: Part 2 is due for release this summer, and features collaborations with some of the best producers in Hip-Hop, Pete Rock, Erick Sermon, !llmind, Apollo Brown, M-Phazes, plus a few other surprises.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
Flow atomic
Blow fire like your toke of chronic
Came up sick
Like the back of your throat with vomit
Iconic stature
Looking right past ya
Study my quotes like a monk & the book of the pastor
Stop sleeping
You ain't equal
We're not even
You squids were caught creeping
I live in the lost deep end
I’ve given my thoughts
Penned em down...Bar Demon!
When I exit now?
I hear them say ‘a stars leaving’
It’s shark season
The eyes are turning black
You lie, I confirm the facts
I climb & burn through tracks
I’m eating now..
Get in line..you herbs are next
Go speak out
Slap your spine out your turtle necks
It’s mine for the taking!!
Blackout, lock the doors
Cut the lights shut the blinds in the basement
Now you gotta stay!
Scripted like it was Sutter Cain
This the moment the TV camera needs to cut away
I’m done asking
Slurred words, gums flapping
This mumble rap these nerds deserve gun clapping
I’m dumb nice
Spray fire
Raise the gun price
Don’t believe? You “Fuck-ing” “stupid”..like Trumps wife/
We need a new leader
So we need to search among us
Don’t let em disperse the fungus
The venom the serpents tongue is
Telling men to murder hundreds
Abundance of hate mongers
The papers that pay pundits
These puppets have days numbered
I hear you talking
But you really need to say something,
Long as I got brain function
And blood in my veins pumping
Imma keep on fighting
The goal is to be enlightened
The flow is like breathing lightning
Never notice equal writing
As long as I been spitting
I didn’t, admit it
I’m the best that ever did it
Die with flesh wrapped in Gold linen
Got minions who carry my clothes
Tearing through shows
bury my foes
Bump me till your stereo blows

Chorus (2x):
Deaths knocking on the front door right now,
Looking to repent but you don't know how,
Somethings gotta give someway, somehow
Right now, Right now
Deaths knocking on the front door right now,
Looking to repent but you don't know how,
Somethings gotta give someway, somehow
Right now, Right now

Verse 2:
A mans pride will eat his soul alive have em pop off till last rights
The priest is notified
I feast as they recline
I find that hunger still
Bless my seeds
Let my light shine my son with skill
The pens divine
Scribe a rhyme the lungs will spill
The raw under your skin
Decayed fungus nail
Man you washed out
And hanging from my clothes line
Bang em with a close-line
Quit singing on them ghost rhymes
I’m sick of the faking
The bickering, I can’t relate
I been aching to wake up
Hit my day job blazing
Grab my pay stub, days been impatient
I’m pacing in place,
And casing the place
Till I break in the safe
And make off with cake
I’m famished!!
Who brought the hammers?
The shooters? The biscuit, the Lugers?
Pop em in the air!
Now punch a fist thru these losers!!
You posing!!!
I want that real back
Back when you would feel tracks
The decks would still scratch
And tecks would kill rats
Snitching wasn’t cool..
The pigeons got their due
If you’re cringing from what I’m spitting? I’ve written it for you
Consider this a jewel
That I drop from the tip of my tongue
Sincere air lifts from my lungs
I’m here to spit for the slums
No gimmicks or stunts
The unadulterated
You played it. No alter madam
You listened, I offered wisdom
Like Christians to God & Satan
Cause friction from what I’m saying
Yet the truth is sorely needed
Watch the poor stay more depleted
While the glutens fill their palled
Most the public’s left to ravish
Politicians Pumping malice
Cringing watching Trump attack his twitter followers
They hope & pray though to get rid of all of us,
The upheaval of evil
Doubt I’ll see it, hope my daughter does
apart of this I blame on....pill popping rappers
Instead of guiding the youth
And providing the truth
They lie in the booth
Make songs just with eyes on the loot,
You ain’t dying to shoot!
Wanna die? I’ll provide the tie & the suit!
tired of dudes
It’s like they’re trying to lose...
you Say you fire?
Then I’m the ignition before they wire the fuse!
Violence influenced
TV supplying the sewage
Kids hit with strays
Hooked up to pints of fluid/
Riots are brewing
The water supply is polluted
Yet a flag we’re crying over whose trying to salute it?
While kids are abandoned...Shooting schools, killing at random
We’re worrying about whose sitting & standing?//

Chorus (2x):
Deaths knocking on the front door right now,
Looking to repent but you don't know how,
Somethings gotta give someway, somehow
Right now, Right now
Deaths knocking on the front door right now,
Looking to repent but you don't know how,
Somethings gotta give someway, somehow
Right now, Right now
