    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

In a world where the race back into space is bigger than ever and the techno-elite are striving daily to exponentially automate the world, J.Smo and Fell Peepz drop a soulful, lyrical assessment in rhyme of this fast-paced world of technology, automation, mining asteroids as well as private interests racing to be the first back into space and eventually set up colonies on distant celestial bodies.⠀

Why do they want to leave Earth so bad? Why is everything being automated? Are we really going to reach the point of Singularity aka humans and artificial intelligence/technology existing as one thing by 2045?⠀

Hell if I know… but I wrote some pretty dope rhymes expressing some of my thoughts. Feel Peepz cooked up the fresh instrumental. Enjoy.⠀

lyrics

4 AM time to rise and grind,
get the kids out of bed so I can catch this flight,
on a paper chase lately trying to build this life,
been lost in the shuffle, been lost in the stars,
been lost in the hustle, finding pieces of the puzzle,
the haters start to shout, find a muzzle for that mouth,
West Coast living but my core is Dirty South,
assuming what you know but you don't know what I'm about,
chilling in my lane, doing my own thing,
building something epic, might even bring some change,
even if it's small, the lasting impact will remain,
peace never comes without sacrifice and pain,
galactic, we looking at the skies, it's drastic,
they trying to leave the planet, too tragic,
invest a billion dollars like magic,
while the rest of us are choking on plastic.

hook:
trying to understand the world,
it ain't nothing but a whirl,
changing so fast, these moments don't last,
keep on moving forward 'til we forget the past.

automate the cars, automate the system,
automate your life soon they'll automate the prisons,
invasion of the robots, replace all the humans,
perfection in the program, we blindly consuming,
I see it all coming yet I can't make it clear,
technology theology is what we're holding near,
strap us to the VR, start wondering who we are,
the bound of reality have never strayed this far,
...so where is it going?
I have no clue but I have to keep flowing,
I have to bring awareness, I have to flip the token,
against all the odds I will show you what I've chosen,
I will fight for my freedom,
no amount of bling will impede on my kingdom,
no amount of pressure will implode my being,
I will stomp my feet and I will keep on singing.

hook:
trying to understand the world,
it ain't nothing but a whirl,
changing so fast, these moments don't last,
keep on moving forward 'til we forget the past.
