    The days of simply using some tight hip hop loops is something of the past for most serious artists in the genre, most are branching out. But few branch out as far as J.Smo and collaborative crew have done here.” Buddy Nelson, Jamsphere

    J.Smo’s highly observant, articulate lyrics capture the zeitgeist of 2016 with “Purgatory”. via BeachSloth.com

    J.Smo is Hip Hop. He’s universal voice, from humble beginnings.” -Zion Antoni, Urban Cry, LLC

    Whose lovechild…Atmosphere with a touch of Struggle Jennings.” via The Ark of Music

    The fusion of genres in this one is undeniably fresh, and it works – experimentation or a desire to be original have not taken the place of great music, they have driven it towards you with great personality and style.” via Stereo Stickman

lyrics

Convoluted distributions make it past our third eye,
The third try, you lost your charm,
you paid the cost, but what’s the price?
Was it worth your other life?
Might have been broke, you were living right,
Dreams fed to you from a screen,
She’s too fat and he’s too mean,
Match your reds and match your greens,
Try this mauve, it looks so clean,
Buy your boss a guillotine; you can live among this greed,
Don’t you want it? Please succeed,
80s Babies did the deeds; CIA made them the fiends…
From the powder to the rocks, from the sacks up in your socks,
From the money to the safe, I feel your pain if you relate,
Correlate experiences, settle up the differences,
It’s all about the benjamins, no matter what the business is.

It’s all about the benjamins, no matter what the business is,
Evaluate your worth and cash it in for the dividends,
Appraisers set the price, never notice any differences,
They’ll sell you for the low.

Instinct is what we think,
Natural abilities to comprehend,
Legislated through businessmen,
Wall Street competing until highest price lands,
Self-employment and free love will advance,
Mass production of soul called life supports,
Foreign imported destruction of empowerment,
Relevance is key to success of intelligence,
It’s all elementary, evidently

It’s all about the benjamins,
We all some type of businessmen,
Call me Bill Gates, cause I never stack my paper thin,
I’m in to win at any cost; no wonder fellas call me boss,
Built this thing from sticks and stones ain’t no way I’ma take a loss,
Sticks and stones may break my bones; they’ll never slow me down,
I’ma keep my business growing as long as I’m around,
Feel the BUNKS In Ya Trunk and you know it’s going down,
This empire that we’re building is the talk of the town,
Towns they talk, hens they squawk,
If you bad for my business, then you best just take a walk,
Make it real long off a short short pier,
Only your momma won’t know that you ain’t here,
But if you’re going to stay I can make you disappear,
This place is up in Grundy, people ain’t seen in years,
So when you’re making moves, better get it on the go,
I’ll sell you at a high and take you for a low.
