This Love (prod by Sage the One)

from Words Beyond Measure by EKD x J.Smo



Another late night, another day with no sleep
Grinding hard for everything I love, the company I keep
My kids are tucked in bed, beats from Sage play in my head
Wifey in the sky, spit these flows until she lands
Scoop her up in Sacramento, take her to our residential
Sneak up on her in the shower, leave the picture for your mental
Most be dreaming of this love, call me blessed from high above
That patient, slow, all night, soulful kind of love
What you don’t see is what it takes to be the boss
See the highlight reel then your envy starts to talk
But you’re too lazy to walk
Screaming gimme gimme gimme gimme some more
Salute to Sage the One, let my homie up the score
I’m out the door
Jump into the Flex, I-5 North, windows down
Let that California air spread the sounds, paint the town
J.Smo, BUNKS, Sage the One, EKD, MPC
Hip Hop, it don’t stop.

This love I have is real, keeping me above
troubled waters, but even finding peace can be a job
in and of itself, life can be so tough, treat you rough
beat you up, leave you bleeding in the mud, but we keep it up
what else is there to do, than to seek the love
and strive to keep it cool, keep it true
we write the jewels, precious words for the thirsty minds
the urge to rhyme got me bursting lines that reverse the lying
cancel out the curses, bring real rap to the surface
words with purpose, ‘cause they got you acting nervous
I’m at your service though, flowing soul with J.Smo
everytime we rhyme we close the curtains on the crazy show
I’m not raking dough, not rotated on the radio
that’s okay though, never believed that was the way to go
I just wanna speak on a beat, set it free
show my love, rep my steeze, be myself, EKD
