This one night i saw my pops stared long at the mirror

Touched the wrinkles on his face; in his eyes i saw terror

Something wrong. He looked beyond the form, he sees

He was gone. Lost. longing for the fondest memories

I stood quietly. Concealed myself behind his presence

Time clenched. Gold grip stripped this man of his essence

He looked older that night than he did before

Shoulders bent. Back arched slighty towards the floor

A detour. Perhaps a sign to where he’s heading

One thing’s for sure, yall, death is always destined

This aint the same man...i saw pacing today

Bony hand embracing his ever changing face

Tired of searching. His eyes prying for an old friend

His youth...a part of him he’ll never know again

Reduced to ash. “Was i moving to fast?”

Nah pops time fly so its easy to lose track


*Chorus*


Its hard for me to watch he aint supposed to be weak

This is my pops, fuck, a future version of me

Sometimes loneliness beckons the appearance of ghosts

Even Christ knows that despair (the spear) can pierce ur soul

Its a personal matter. He couldn’t run for help

He rather keep it to himself; play the card he was dealt

Death comes in different forms, whether elders or newborns

The worse yet is when a part of you is gone

The night silence. As he strive to find it

Kept his composure but in his heart, my pops was cryin

I heard him sigh...as he walk away from the mirror

No more fear in his eyes cuz it all became clearer

Hear the word of the wise: except the change in ur lives

Even in the trouble water...reflections don’t lie

He caught me with a smile. Slowly lift me up

He whispered in my ear: “enjoy it. Enjoy ur gift, ok, son…”


*Chorus*


I was seven then. 20 years had past…

Im watching him again. Memories can last

I’d walk a day in his shoes, but it was too big to borrow

In case i was lost, he left his footprint to follow

I saw my dad as the man before…

Sturdy and strong; Can withstand demanding force

No more wrinkle and scars. Just twinkling stars

A bright spark in his “I” pride engraved in his heart

Made of “stone”. yep, he was a tower of strength

Persistent. Held his own weight through thick and thin

In ur life, pops, u never stop to smell the rose

I dropped by to gave you flowers.

It got cold

My eye swell as i felt a warm embrace

i knelt down, allowed myself to cry before his grave


I got home about a quarter to 9

Then i look in the mirror….i thought i saw some lines (shit)

Yooooo put this on as I smoked up, glad I did

First verse was dope, cool presence, solid intro.

Good development in the second verse, content is delivered honestly and I was really digging your presence here. 

Third verse ending it well. This was really well done man, a really well rounded track. Your versatile! Looking forward to our collab coming together

bro.... finally something not phone recorded.... and you fuckin killed this shit. you got a dope ass grimey voice, really good for recording. the mixing is dope, the lyrics are dope... I mean what is there to complain about. you got a really good presence on the mic.
 
now a big thing I would recommend is boosting up the volume on the vocals a little bit.
 
this was really dope and I really look forward to hearing more drops!
 
lyrically this shit is on point, and its great having the lyrics to go along with the track. you do some neat word manipulations to smoothin out some rhymes.
 
solid job on this drop Sammy, solid drop.

You are a one ill sonofa...

Vocally you sound a little bit like Shyne, I liked the way you mixed up the delivery at points, obviously quality lyrical content, the style of the hook was cool, all round really good drop man.

Breathing life back into this Audio Mic!!

well, piano beats are always a good thing.

not overly sold on the hi-hats...

jesus bro. you got that benefit steelo on this one. (raw)

lauren hill samples will always be a good call. common not too bad either. could do without nasir ;)


yeah, overall. this was super dope sammy. I loved how on that old school joint you had you sounded like a lyrical version of troy ave and on this one you sound like benefit on proceed with caution... but I am not comparing you to these rappers, just merely pointing out how fucking polished you are.

the song as a whole is raw. kinda reminded me slightly of meet the parents.. especially in delivery. but I felt this was a better song imo.

if we don't do something im going to take it personally. you too dope family.

one of the best audios ive heard here in a while. really glad your posting old joints here again, ive always loved your shit. you need to email me a compilation of your old shit bro lol. i really loved the lofi old school feel of this song, idk if that was intentional or a limitation of equipment but it really gave everything that haunting 36 Chambers vibe. i caught a little Immortal Technique off of this as well, it sounds like a really raw track that you would hear on an early Revolutionary tape, and you cant ask for much better than that, so props to you bro. this is actually some real inspiring shit, makes me want to go back to pen and pad and pen some rugged 90s shit again lol. i love this one bro. awesome work

We definitely need to try to do something else. I may have something i can get you on if you got time to record bro.

As far this piece it felt like the 90s all over again. The nostalgia of the Golden age of hip hop. Story telling unmatched with perfect development. Your cadence fit this peace very well. Definitely a 10/10 for me bro keep it up
