about

Marcus J: Probably going to need C-Doc straighten out the mess I’m about to make describing this song… but here is what I think happened. We had a song called “September” as part of the same project as “August” was to appear on… or so we thought… I think… I’m pretty sure we both remembered the song existing but could never find a trace of it. So we wanted to add something on to the end of August, and we wanted it to be September. So C-Doc cooked up a beat and I dug up a verse.
Now the verse I dug up also has a long twisted confusing history. A while ago, a couple of years ago probably, I did another one of my write for the sake of writing verses. I called it “A Peephole For My People”. I wrote and recorded it and filed it away. I don’t even think I sent it to C-Doc which I usually do just in case he can make something of it. So anyway months later, DJ Def Chad is recording his “Black Holocaust” album, and C-Doc contacts me to get down on a Chad track called “My People”. Wow… perfect… I remembered what I had written months before and re-recorded it over the new beat for Chad’s album. Well I don’t think Chad liked my verse, or at least part of it. And I honestly can’t remember if it got used for anything at all.
Anyway when “September” came around for this album we were at C-Doc’s recording, and he asks do I have anything for this “September” beat? And I started digging through my lyric sheets and pull out “Peephole” yet again, and after flipping a few words and lines, I record it again. Pretty sure this was the last thing I recorded for this album.
That’s the way I remember it anyway… but I’m getting old.

C-Doc: Uhh...?!?!

lyrics

Marcus J: I know too many people, care for my people
Lie, cheat and steal, bet I kill for my people
Guessing it’s these times that mold and shape my rhymes
And birth a permanent pessimistic state of mind
Sometimes I’m a bad friend, spread myself too thin
Giving to the needy keeps the needy coming back again
I tend to ignore those that do not need my help
Even me cause honestly I rarely help myself
See I know me like you may know yourself
But who am I if I’m not helping someone else
Not bragging the opposite I’m needing understood
Sometimes I do bad but it’s for the greater good
Like Robin Hood I’m rob’in just to give it away
So when I see my people you know I'm quick to say
What's understood really don’t need to be heard
I love you… without saying a word
