    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

Easy going, easy flowing, just rewarding myself
good peeps all over, who be needin’ our help
Fuck the selfish, the wealthy neglecting their alms
Shelter’s not gonna hinder Armagedeon’s pawns
Raging Storms, forest-fires, still believing you blessed
living in denial, still can’t perceive it’s a test
better sleep, get some rest, on the words that I speak
you know the verbal lightning bolts that I hurl from my peak
working for that world peace, you do the opposite shit
because you broke, and you need a big war for the quids
far from legit, gig’s up, letting them know
so they can close the curtains on your whole treacherous show
raking the dough, on sacrificing your own
like pawns in a game of chess, far from home
masonic society, Skull & Bones, toga parties
smiling having good times, on piles of bodies

You know I’ll fight like a brave - ‘til I lie in my grave
You know your lies can’t save your whole line from disgrace
better open both eyes - cease’ playing with fire
in denial, change ways, for the straits are dire

Everywhere I look I see the foundations crumbling
Information overload our souls they are plundering
Falling for the trap, we some saps, leaves me wondering
If it’s time to bring the rain, hammer down, it’s thundering
Programmed for war, activate the system
Infiltrate with music, spread the web and make them listen
This world’s at war, it’s fighting for attention
Convinced that we’re free while we build our own prisons
Their mission accomplished, suppress their knowledge
Entire generations became debt slaves after college
Call this an homage to things never abolished
Serving us turds painted gold with shiny polish
We take it, we love it, we want some more of it
Makes me sick deep down feel it tear apart my stomach
Navigate the straits, they are dire near the summit
Watch the kingdom fall apart when their stocks start to plummet.

You know I’ll fight like a brave - ‘til I lie in my grave
You know your lies can’t save your whole line from disgrace
better open both eyes - cease’ playing with fire
in denial, change ways, for the straits are dire
