The Spring Up


if you're city isn't on the map gotta make tracks
like leave and get love to take back
those that can do
those that cant shouldn't say jack
but i don't talk about haters
haters hate that - funny
im that dude based
mostly out a suitcase
arguing with airports
about toothpaste like
im not quoting the koran
with a vest on
who the hell's ever made
a bomb made of crest?!
armed to the teeth - funny
(you owe me 5.99, dog)
westjet said
let the head rest
recline on em
so im coolin out
flying home
thru some cyclones
over time zones
sky shining like a rhinestone
neil diamond mine
full of fine poems
yall gotta dig
when we dig
and then grind
these refined coals
call em gems
call up friends when i land
back in van
like, "dave
whats the
shplan, man?
lets get some sha lin…

Mad international, Shad in the passenger
Seat, on the beat, it’s a blast like Plaxico
Clasico, panoramic scope
Transatlantic, you could grab a boat, but I take a plane
Take pains with everything I wrote, make sure it’s sounding dope
Instagram photos, showing shows to the folks at home, and the span grows
Make rap flows, rent a van, go and pack clothes
Play some rap shows, get some cash then go back home
From British to the District, I spit a sentence
Be there in an instant for an instance, so witness
Here for a good time not a long time
With some good songs and it all rhymes, alright
Pent up in the confines of a ride
Just to bust out and share the confines of my mind, yeah
Dirt City, Real City, I rep
Hit me up if you need a sublet, oh yes

couple macbook bros
making hot songs
over hotmail
t dotcom
back to the future
kid with the faster computer brain
marry mcshad is the username
scratch - we can do the hang
hang like a dookie chain
master the craft
and laugh like it's pootie tang
lo city rep, flow gritty plus so pretty
shoulder shimmying in my videos like the old ditty
busy playing whitney at my neighbours crib
bring some whiskey they can sip and stay a bit
pray before i make a trip
labels wouldn't check for the kid, no babysit
no every stage is like home when im playing it
hotel check-outs
check out the passport
miles on the dashboard
that was just last tour
now im back and im sitting till my back's sore
back at the house
you can catch me on the back porch
