    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

And if I die, you know I gave it my best,
Stayed BUNK to the soul, I gave this heart out my chest,
Kept it simple to the core, shared my wealth with the rest,
Staying true to the music, living life with no regrets.

I say a prayer to my God, cross my fingers to my chest,
Bust one last time before I lay this beat to rest,
I’m blessed with a gift but I’m cursed with the use,
I pour out these stories, they’re my feelings cut loose,
In the booth, I’m a legend, in my mind, I’m a star,
For giving you a taste of these rhymes and my scars,
I live out my life every day on the beat,
Like my world’s an open book, for everyone to see,
Every heartache, every joy, every tear, every smile,
Just to do it my way, makes it all worthwhile,
I kept it BUNK to the core, shared my wealth with the rest,
Stayed true to the vision, lived my life with no regrets.

I was ready to die until my son showed his face,
The night he came out of the womb, I was put in my place,
Now I’m all about my business, ain’t got time for detours,
But I met with crossroads and the trials they endured,
Twenty pounds of plants and they $500 a pop,
All of a sudden distribution became the job that I got,
And soon the heat was on, and they looking right at me,
It seems my neighbors, they be talking ‘bout what they never see,
Eventually, it’s gonna give, tell me how you wanna live,
Vice always up in ya crib, I don’t want to lose my kid,
I bet you would feel the same, I’m done caught up in the game,
Never wanted it this way, on the road to better days,
Staying BUNK to the core, keep it true to the music,
Time to use it for improvements, giving you some amusement,
I put the soul back in rap, beg you please don’t confuse it,
I’m meditating on Confucius while thinking ‘bout Buddhists,
I was raised a country Christian, yea my daddy a preacher,
But my sermons come in flows and the beats, they the teacher,
Together we the team and we’re coming to beat ya,
Smo & Gro, we make the BUNKS and we the hottest new feature.
