    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

about

lyrics

Running full speed just trying to keep pace
Giving all I can but feel I'm running in place
I'm going out my mind, the scenery ain't moving
Hustle on this grind, endless cycles we pursuing

Why do we do this?
What are we living for?
Why do we do this?
What are we fighting for?
Why do we do this?
What do we keep dying for?
Existential questions ain't got no time for reflections

Going full speed but we're running in place
Moving so fast we lost our time in outer space
Evolving so selfish, fully disconnected
Then plugged into a system where our spirit is neglected
The temples, the ruins, the druids, the shamans, the Dalai Lamas
Running underground, the hearts pound, avoid the drama
pause like commas, hot like saunas
Don't be bothered by offers to raid the coffers of authors that designed all the prophets
...or is it profits?
you know, like money and shit?

Running full speed just trying to keep pace
Giving all I can but feel I'm running in place
I'm going out my mind, the scenery ain't moving
Hustle on this grind, endless cycles we pursuing

Why do we do this?
What are we living for?
Why do we do this?
What are we fighting for?
Why do we do this?
What do we keep dying for?
Existential questions ain't got no time for reflections

Fuck am I doing? I am just moving and grooving
I'm out here cruising for bruising
I went to castle from ruins
I went to teacher from student back to student
I"m always learning new shit
You think you're better than me?
That was all illusion
I'm out here for better cheese, you stick to parmesan
You get a couple of streams and tell your friends your on
You take a hit of the weed and tell 'em all you're gone
I keep running and running it's like a marathon

Running full speed just trying to keep pace
Giving all I can but feel I'm running in place
I'm going out my mind, the scenery ain't moving
Hustle on this grind, endless cycles we pursuing

Why do we do this?
What are we living for?
Why do we do this?
What are we fighting for?
Why do we do this?
What do we keep dying for?
Existential questions ain't got no time for reflections
