A Hot & Curated Hip-Hop Playlist

Making Music In The Twenties Of The 21st Century

  Episode #7  

What to do with the rest of this crazy year?
Well, I guess in my case the answer is: Making Music, for I am a musician.
So, I continue to tell you inside stories about Making Music In The Twenties Of The 21st Century.
Here are some of the things that have kept me busy since last week.
First, I’ve curated a really nice Playlist on YouTube & Spotify. It’s called MASTER’S MONKEYS‘ Hip-Hop Favorites.

Writing Hip-Hop Lyrics

It is not a requirement to write “Explicit” lyrics, even if it is fun. You can write lyrics in hip-hop without being a member of a gang.
Currently I’m working on a new song. I’ve just started the recordings, so I can’t play it to you now, but I can show you the song lyrics this time. Usually I’m starting with the lyrics.

Don't Feel so Well
Words & Music by Paul 'Aka' Kessler

Verse 1

Don't mean to scare you
It's getting worse
Don't wanna lie
I know it hurts

You are the last
Of a dying breed
A true hostage
Of your silly greed

The weather's changing
Growing concerns
Soldiers march
And cities burn

You feel the dark
Like going blind
Nowhere to turn
You don't have time

Hook

And I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
Well, I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
What the hell? Who can tell? Wish you well
Well, the hell will take care of itself
And I can tell I don't feel well
Don't feel so well myself

Verse 2

Don't wait for help
To come to you
So be prepared
In solitude

There's no one left
To give a cheer
Just dig your grave
Where ghosts appear

You shall not care
Why not let go?
A simple yes
To the steady flow

You sold your soul
Well, it's no crime
You gotta go
You don't have time

Hook

And I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
Well, I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
What the hell? Who can tell? Wish you well
Well, the hell will take care of itself
And I can tell I don't feel well
Don't feel so well myself

Breakdown

Don't mean to scare you
It's getting worse
Don't wanna lie
I know it hurts

We feel the dark
Go with the flow
We don't have time
Why not let go?

Hook

And I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
Well, I'm not feeling well myself
Don't feel so well myself
What the hell? Who can tell? Wish you well
Well, the hell will take care of itself
And I can tell I don't feel well
Don't feel so well myself

There's no one left
To give a cheer
Just dig your grave
Where ghosts appear

We feel the dark
Go with the flow
We don't have time
Why not let go?

FINE

Beyond streaming, you can also  DOWNLOAD THE SONG  directly from the producer for your own music collection. Awesome!

THE MONKEY CHANNEL Is Growing

I’m like a farmer. (What?) Slowly but surely, my YouTube channel, THE MONKEY CHANNEL, is offering a diverse range of entertainment. From snapshots to vodcast episodes to short films and music videos.

Just take a look!

That’s it for now!

Ev’rybody, have a good time!
