Living Legends

Living Legends - Nothing Less

rate me

(feat. Slug)

"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams, come along"

[Chorus]

Nothing Less, nothing less

[Grouch]

Well I bet you that I get the last laugh

Bet you that my funerals packed

And the tune you all blast is my crew's shit

New shit or old it don't matter

Bold I get swole in the zone where you gather

I'm alone but together with the folks

Not really knowing where I'm going

But my goal's to provoke thoughts

Devote lots, show some fools the ropes to hop

Scope the top from above it

Love it, then leave it alone

I believe that I'm grown showing the way

Owing the bay for going astray, now I'm blowing away

Like that bag in American Beauty

Truly blessed and nothing less

[MURS]

I'm nothing less than a criminal

With minimal convictions

Serving up my customers a hustler of the diction

Crushing my afflictions, I'm sick in the mind

Depends on how you ask

And I can do anything depending on the task

I tend to be on blast more often than not

Between a rock and a hard place

I soften my spot, talking a lot

That's if my CD's get played

But if that's not the case then I had nothing to say

My crew been tight since we was up in the bay

Been down for a while, now watch us

As we take it, up and away

Something to play when you're laying on back

Felt the love when I wrote this

So I know y'all feel what I'm saying on tracks

[Chorus x3]

[Slug]

The first step was birth

Now forever cursed to analyze his self-worth

The second step was belief

He had to make that move before he even grew teeth

The third step, respect awareness

He could trip over the next step if he's careless

That next step, number four, was love

Can't touch it without stepping the other three above

As he froze for a moment

Ignoring the remaining ones

He was approaching, focus stolen

Looking down at his hands to see what he was holding

Nothing, empty

No choice but to keep going

The fifth step felt like a misstep

It was a re-evaluation of the first four

The anxiety, fear of what it hurts for

Caught in somewhere between the earths core

And the first floor

When he finally made it to step six

He could no longer see it for what it is

All of his views and family and life were askew

Number six had been twisted by the previous two

The last step, the seventh

Was the only thing left that kept him outside of heaven

One last breath and everything could be pleasant

Life through death, man's final lesson

[Chorus]

[Sunspot Jonz]

Nothing less, god bless the days I rest

In this mess called life

Trying to be the best for the best dressed

Female, but she just brings hell

In the wishing well, I drown pieces of my soul

Born to rebel

I'm the black James Dean of the underground

Yelling at shows

Like rallys in Cali, I blow rhyme under the trees

Wanabees talk shit all day

But don't got a tape to play

Nothing genuine to say

So they bite the next man

Like they gonna make him the best man

In this crusade the future looks black

Like Taye Diggs' forehead

We can't go ahead and let the whack break our spirit

[Chorus]

[Scarub]

I know my expectations are high

But I refuse to lay low

No compromises only improvising

From what I manifest in the mind

Even though they say no

I follow through if it's true

You know those type of serious questions

That are asked in a playful manner

So if assumptions are wrong

They can act like it's a joke?

"What do you do for a living?"

That's the words they spoke

When they first heard that I wrote to stay alive

While they work a 9 to 5

I work just as hard as you

But got a different focus

And while you focus on me I'm gonna be all that I am

All of SIAM, while others run at the mouth

With nothing to show

I'ma use what I know, manipulating my flow

From here to there

I origami the situation from what is considered

Unsuitable to something beautiful

The outcome is legendary, and nothing less
