In the Hood

Sample Spiel:

[Intro Verse 1]
In the hood, my neighbourhood
Where people thought I would
become only a bum or hoodlum,
I knew to ignore the stereotyping
and kept trying to beat the odds
and keep improving,
Now I travel across the globe,
And with music I deliver hope
to people of all races and colour
So that they too can
make their hoods better!

[Verse 2]
I used to think about hip hop
Tried to rap but would always drop
Off the flow, but that didn’t stop
me from trying, each morning
as I listen to another beat,
tap my feet to sync with each bar,
move my body like a superstar,
and keep believing one day
I’d make it to the top of hip hop
10 years later I’ve paid my dues
another album release with rave reviews
It may even go platinum…I’ve made a few
Now I make my return to the hood
Retracing my steps to the good
times, and the place where I stood
to formulate my first rhymes

Playing Tough

Genre – Rap/Hip-hop

Sample Spiel:

[Intro]
Yes, Mr. Bigman
Playing tough
or always looking to play rough
and you know that’s not the way things go
But you just keep on playing, seen!

[Verse 1]
You claim you are the reason
The West was won, that you are
War’s only begotten son
Always quick to fight
and never interested
To make things right
But your words are contrite
You’ll run away at the first sight
of a threat or someone looking upset

[Chorus]
You believe you’re tough
Yet you’ll never stand up for anything
but yourself. That’s not enough
to earn your respect in this town
And why you’ll find yourself on your own
Just another unknown entity
in search of an identity
