about

In June of 2013 I released an EP (INFINITE MOTION) under the concept of a mixtape in a different light. So I approached as a performance in the future with my favorite bands, rather than a group of songs from the radio that I wrote verses to "just because". To me these songs are more than just a number on a tracklist. This is the negative and positive energy that controls everything from how we take a step to how we take a breath. I heard that energy doesn't disappear, it just gets transfered from one to another.
Carrying the same ideology of that project resulted in a full length album released under Enjoyment Records. "A Constant Motion..." is the time at night where you reflect on all of your mistakes and short comings with intent to change you life for the better. Slowing down from the "INFINITE MOTION" of your monotonous life and breaking the cycle of mediocrity. This is what moving forward in feels like in the flesh. This is positive travel in a constant motion.

Track Name: Moving Foward (Featuring Gatherer)
[Blak Tha Map]
This is sound of progression, check with flo if you need some assurance
This is sound of my depression; I drop this flow just to show some endurance
Maybe cause my close homie died, Or maybe because I’m all alone at night
Maybe because every conversation with my family starts great but ends with a fight,
I’m tired of arguing about bullshit, while I’m in a constant motion of a full trip
Barely holding on to sobriety, Tryna do my damnest to forget
Naw fuck that, this part of me, This why I give you all of me
I’ll give it all even after the fall of me, Consider this your property
I guess no one has to listen to me because I have no evidence of a college degree
I’m just trill nigga with an obscure degree of honesty obviously

[Gatherer]
This is the loneliest that you've felt in life
but we haven't gone yet.
And when you get back,
how will we find the means to start again?

They're all dead.
I can still feel it.
[Blak Tha Map]
Emotional shipwreck
I remember the sweet details
And I can still feel it
I’m moving forward
I can’t see the light
But I can still feel it
They're all dead.
I can still feel it.
Track Name: I V Drip: Part 2 (Featuring Skadoi Benji)
*The XX*
You leave with a tide
And can't stop you leaving
I can see it in your eyes,
Somethings have lost their meaning

*Blak Tha Map*
And I can see it your eyes, I can see it your eyes, You feel something ain’t right
Now maybe I’m trippin’ but on the way down I loss grip on my sight
you should be lucky that I listen to talk about blah za blah ze
But I should lucky that you put up with me all nonchalantly
You got some issues and all magazines can go out of date
And this is me telling you to put your baggage in place.
Admitted I’m an alcoholic but, I’ve been fixing it from the start of this
Truth be told if you knew it all I don't think you would have started this
And your jealousy makes sobriety hard to grip, I’m starting to think you didn’t want apart of this
That’s prolly why we don’t have arguments, just phone calls full of apologies
Oh I’m sorry that one hugged me, or If someone in the crowd said they loved me
Or if your friends don’t think that I’m loving, or that I won’t amount to nothing
Or maybe if they empathize, they wouldn’t be judging my life
When we both know our living isn’t right, We both try to stay up to hype
Just a couple of hypocrites in hypocrite recovery
And when it’s all said and done, just make love to me

*Skadoi Benji*
And I just give you my life
Even if my living isn’t right
I’ll try
To cut thru all my bullshit and cut thru all your problems
So if I see you in the morning, then we should try to solve them
(Part 2)

*Blak Tha Map*
No I don’t believe in love at first sight, believe sex on the first night
No I don’t believe in love after the first try, After that, your body suffice
I’m just riddin’ round with niggas, loss sobriety might kill us
Twenty times over limit, Under the influence, Over this bitches
All because I don’t want to look needy, I’m making you leave for no reason (for no reason)
Naw I’m lying But I don’t wanna hurt no feelings
Am I staying cause your parents are racist or are you becoming complainant?
Or at shows you becoming impatient, Why you interrupting conversations for?
Right now I wish you had a phone, Cause feeling these uppers and downers aye
That’s some Jeremy Bolm shit, Touché Amore
"I did this to myself , Hammered nails with the words unsaid
To look up to me is to look down on everything you said"
Look, I’m driving myself insane, hoping this isn’t in vain
I’m drinking expensive pain, that’s Russian water in my veins
I know sometimes I need to watch what I’m saying.
This all is a prime example of that statement
My I V is dripping the current to see if these meds are working
Only one way to know for certain (3x)
So tell me if its working
Track Name: The Swim/Khloe Refain
Friendship, Play toy, Fuckin’, Touchin’

I’m living that life where the women are more than certain
It’s less certain that I call because I’m playing until the curtain
But they keep falling like I made them spot being a virgin
The alcohol stop hurting but, my eyes still burning
It’s hard to connect cause I tell’em I won’t fall again
And since I’m not in a relationship, my relations are in sin
Sex, money and syrup. Touring artist. I’m a tourist.
The thought process the same but, the money it dilutes it
Arrogant and foolish. Hottest out and coolest.
Writing albums in brial, my scribbles make me look jewish.
Hebrew look amish. Do their daughter’s speak ebonics?
She wanted to break away so I took her ass to sonic
God damns most but, the devil in me fucks the rest
She wants me but, can’t accept that I have no feeling left
But wait a sec. I never said I won’t fall in love again
But a friend that’s a girl she won’t be anything other than

Friendship, Play toy, Fuckin’, Touchin’
You’re nothing more than that.
Oh, you’re nothing more than that.
Someone when my bed gets lonely
No strings attached. Girl you don’t know me.
You’re nothing more than that
Oh, you’re nothing more than that.

You think she won’t? I bet she will
Hoes like that just want to fuck and deal
I said they want a fucking deal
But I’m not into them bull shit problems, that late night drama, that one tree hill
She mad; Can’t concentrate.
But no stress; I’m sipping on concentrate
I’m only a mile away she filled with hate
Because I came home all kinds of late.. but shit!
She luck that I came home
She wanted to be treated like a girlfriend and not a “bitch that I bone” but, what’s wrong?
When I take her out she want to be home alone
But when home she be acting all different and trippin’ because I just finished her sentence
But that’s what happens when you get closer
Emotions seems to match her sex, “Fucking Rollercoaster”
I’m starting to have second thoughts about getting to know her
Shit if I get any closer I’m gone be runnin’ no motor from…

Friendship, Play toy, Fuckin’, Touchin’
You’re nothing more than that.
Oh, you’re nothing more than that.
Someone when my bed gets lonely
No strings attached. Girl you don’t know me.
You’re nothing more than that
Oh, you’re nothing more than that.

[Khloe Refrain]

Oh I just want you here in my bed right now… my bed right now
I just want you here in my bed right now…
So tell me if it’s wrong to want you here in my bed right now…
Right now..

Baby I just want you in my bed right now… Right now
Baby I just want you in my bed right now… Right now

I just want you here right now…
Right here.. Oh, right here
Baby I just want you in my bed right now… Right now
Track Name: Musical Infanticide
[Blak Tha Map]


I’m type of person you don’t see everyday
I’m not even stuntin’ but I make you feel some type of way
There’s some hate in my city, I’ve done seen it today
But it’s half hearted cause that real is not in their DNA
Like Woadie, Woadie. Woadie Boy that hate will never hold me
They mad cause I’m original, but bump like top 40
I’m finna road run yo hood and you looking like wild e coyote
Feel sad killin’ em’ o.d, I got your girlfriend to console me
You mad cause I’m really doing it, or mad cause you not doing shit?
Now the only thing I’m missing is.. Chicken and beer no ludacris.
They sayin blak tha map losin’ it, truth be told I done already lost it
I sound like a chill ass mosh pit, Dope raps, with beat in coffin
Like how who knew putting out this feel shit was gonna bring out all of these critics
They gimmie that screw face cause I speak on my addictions
Like why you spit that life when you could be popular with the fiction
Maybe if I say get bitches! Then somebody would listen right?

Now I could be wrong… But I don’t think so
But I don’t think so..

Ok I’m stone cold, Seen the face of medusa,
Heard you callin them shots, but you aint got a phone for a shooter
Riddle me why you pussy but you be smelling like tuna
Your house at the LA riots my people looking like looters
I’m a lot less peaceful cause I quit smokinin’ the Buddha
These the problems you face when you become your own ruler
Practicing innovation, giving the game that renovation
Perfection takes time like thank you for your patience
More beef than an Iron chef. I don’t need to wear no apron
Serve it up better than what you dish out, it’s not your fault that I’m amazing
It’s amazing like name the time and location
I mean anytime. Name it. I’ll school you on my vacation.
Like oh man, oh damn this shit not part of the program
I hope you stumble on this while you Pandora channel cruzin
This different from my norm but hey I’m only human
Who said you can’t ball and still be on food stamps?

Now I could be wrong… But I don’t think so
But I don’t think so..
Now I could be wrong… But I don’t think so
But I don’t think so..
Track Name: Dirty Chai Manifesto (Featuring Case Arnold)
I’m in Chicago right now.. and I go by Blak, Tha Map


Now the difference is… I’m different
I’ll be the same nigga in house slippers even if I’m at the MGM
See I gotta lotta wack songs but I don’t release it
I just give you my best, but that’s a secret
Don’t let me kill your songs boy, mike Myers, now rot in pieces
Essay for that verse, essay, consider this my thesis
On how I’m better then whoever too clever and shit
But I still deal with the bullshit not rich but I wish this
This 9 to 5 wasn’t kicking my ass,
8 hours a drag, so I got my pen and a pad
Boss talking that shit, so now I see how it is
So when I get a little bread, I’ll be taking his bitch
Cause they won’t let a real nigga get his way up,
Gotta elbow corporate for a lay up
Act like pay cuts just a shape up
But the daily bullshit won’t change us
Blak Tha Map for the people keeping the people in the picture
A black leader of our free world, but still yellin’ free my niggas like..

[Case Arnold]
Don’t know where my days gone, This thing I hope it all last
From the kid who used to skip class. All the popular girls used to walk pass
Fuck a Motherfucker if they can’t show love, Kiss my ass…
That’s why I stay on my J-O-B can’t wait til they see me doing it in First Class
[Blak Tha Map]
In that first class, first class, first class, first class
The don’t want to see doing that shit in that first class..
That first class



I’m tryna live good, I don’t need a persona
Hot girls from Tijuana, serving chai from teavana
Women with daddy issues, make some good enchiladas
My team is eating good, like bring on the peach cobbler
I do it for niggas sellin weed on the corner, flippin’ bricks Sellin nicks,
Riddin round with bitch, turning tricks just to pay rent, still banging
Fake niggas talking bullshit, arguing over a bitch
Who just gonna leave you for a grip can you feel me
“Um Just a little bit, I’m drinking, just a little bit”
Alcoholic, just a little bit, was Anonymous just for a little bit
Had bad day, turned great evening believe me
Steady performin’, dumb rockin’ shows too easy
But harder than the generic gimmick, cause I live it
All about my dream team I reek of team spirit
I was fighting temptation, but now see things clearer
Can finally look in the eyes of the man in the mirror

[Case Arnold]
Don’t know where my days gone, This thing I hope it all last
From the kid who used to skip class. All the popular girls used to walk pass
Fuck a Motherfucker if they can’t show love, Kiss my ass…
That’s why I stay on my J-O-B can’t wait til they see me doing it in First Class
[Blak Tha Map]
In that first class, first class, first class, first class
The don’t want to see doing that shit in that first class..
That first class
Track Name: Moors Takeover Zeitgeist
Don’t Sound like based god huh
Holy Grail of bars huh
Demi-god goin’ hard huh
Akeles heel still won’t stop’em
Young nigga with substance
In mix, dope as freebase
Trip hop athlete track meet
Running this shit no relay
Was a stick up kid nigga gimme this, come out that
This a hold up! What’s the hold up? Aye partner gimme that!
Now I’m out the trap, stand by my actions I won’t give it back
Business credit card, bank teller asking where the business at
Mine yo business, Open your third eye, It’s been written
So when I get it, It won’t be Christmas, I won’t spend shit, that’s business
Cause if cash rules the world, I’m gonna look like a god in your eyes
And if you I despise, then your demise I’ll supervise

This shit sound like God don't it

Arrest cardiac, The war in Iraq, Congress countin racks
Suicide, homicide, genocide
Religious scandal, The church up in shambles, dismantled
Section 8 living, Innocent in Prison, No wrongs forgiven

And all of these things... Sound like God, don't it? x6
Track Name: I am He that THEY speak of (Featuring Everley)
I be that muthafuckin nigga
Don’t you understand I be that muthafuckin nigga
Look at me mom aren’t you glad I’m not a killer
I almost got robbed that time but aren’t you glad I have a temper
I got hard head filled with ambitions
Provided that I’m not drunk, you punks will never get my visions
But I won’t stop I got the world in my palm meanwhile these drugs in palm
It’s got me in acoma don’t ring the alarm
Just last week adoral claimed my nigga javon
I want rehab, but can’t fathom even telling my mom
I know my songs have a depressed nigga overtone
Too much feel shit, that’s why you listen to this when you’re alone
So I’m proud of me. The fault, failure, and shame
I feel that I’m famous even if you’re faded you’ll still remember my name
I’m so vain, I’m insane, it’s okay, I’m just sayin’
This is me, All of me, This is pain, this is gain

It seems like yesterday this was all a dream
I did all by myself, I influence me
No one will ever change how I believe
Because… This is me!

[Tyler Dishman]
This time
This is me and this my life
Don't take it for granted
This is me
And this my life
Track Name: The Big Finish (Featuring The Lives To Come)
I’ve got fireball burnin in my lungs don’t stop Naw I get it
You never meant it from the beginning, just kidding
Just forget it, I was never what you craved for after all
And after all I’m just an outline of my former self on adderall
Plus alcohol, You’re appalled, now I’m appalled? No not at all
Truthfully we were bound to fall, I’m hoping that the ground is soft
Cause really I’ve enough of your over blown emotional paper cuts
If you weren’t allergic to weed I’d get you to ash a blunt
Or have some fun. Maybe you should run like you said you would
Or maybe I’m not the one, I tried being the one but I never could
I find it funny how we find comfort in distances
Funny how we use just kidding just to back track our words when we really meant that shit
Well honestly you don’t know what offensive is
And honestly right now I don’t know how we’re supposed to end
And I’m torn to go back to the beginning
You know I’ve never been good at venting and..

On the day we died,
I cut my hair for the funeral,
and on memorial day, I started drinking
because it got kind of hard just sitting there thinking
about you all alone in that house,

You just want to start over, I just want to stop
You just want to start over, we really gotta stop
You just want to start over because I want to stop
We just want to start over but know we should stop
