Notable Quotable – Glasses Malone’s “May 1st”

“Wiz turned the kids into some grass hypes
Only thing higher is the gas price
Can’t blame ’em, rest of us preaching ave life
As if niggas on the ave really have life (really)
If we do, we clutching 44 mags tight
Mask on, nigga tryin to get our cash right
Type nigga have a reverend scared
Up in everywhere with some dollar in the register (run that shit)
Brought terror, terror, terror like a red alert
Shit, in your darkest moments when the devil lurks
When its all pink notices in ya mailbox
Last pack of Top Ramen® on the shelf top
Them situations bring the beast out a nigga
And they wonder why our fingers stay squeezed around triggers
Ever felt the pressure all that poverty provide
Desperation and morale start to steadily collide
Being called a ‘deadbeat,’ make you wish you weren’t alive
So you make ’em feel the heat from the second you arrive
That’s how you ride
It is what it is, nigga do what it gotta when it’s time to feed the kids
Guess it’s all ‘gon change since Osama died
Guess it’s all ‘gon change…”

Glasses Malone from “May 1st” off the mixtape Cold As Ice.

Sure, there are always going to be good days, but that doesn’t you’ll have a great week. Like most Americans, G. Malone felt some kinda way when Osama Bin Laden got dropped and he looked out his window and didn’t have an urge to celebrate. Look for more prolific barbs of realness as Cali agent channels the early 90s Ice Cube on his prelude to Beach Cruiser, the DJ Skee, Mr. Peter Parker and DJ Greg Street-helmed Cold As Ice.

Bonus: Ya Boy helps the G-Man redefine ghetto fabulous for the debut LP.
