Whether you know him as OC, Omar Credle, or as Mush, you cannot deny this Brooklyn brother got skills on the mic. Both "Word..Life" and "Jewels" are serious LPs by any rapper's standards. Here's a version excursion on OC's classic joint "Time's Up". I know it's hard to fuck with a classic, but hopefully it's a refreshing change from the original. Let us know in the comments what you think.
"You lack the minerals and vitamins irons and the niacin
Fuck who that I offend rappers sit back I'm bout to begin
'bout foul talk you squawk never even walked the walk
More less destined to get tested never been arrested
My album will manifest many things that I saw did or heard about
or told first hand never word of mouth
What's in the future for the fusion in the changer?
Rappers are in danger who will use wits to be a remainder
When the missile is aimed, to blow you out of the frame
Some will keep their limbs and, some will be maimed
The same suckers with the gab about, killer instincts
but turned bitch and knowin' damn well they lack
In this division the connoisseur, crackin' your head with a 4x4
Realize sucka, I be the comin' like Noah
Always sendin you down, perpetratin' facadin' what you consider
a image, to me this is, just a scrimmage
I'm feel I'm stone, not cause I bop or wear my cap cocked
The more emotion I put into it, the harder I rock
Those who pose lyrical but really ain't true I feel"
"Their time's limited, hard rocks too" - Slick Rick (from the song "Hey Young World")
