Ape​-​X

lyrics

I am a primate or merely a multi-celled organism,
Caused by ice age, cataclysm and adaptive precision,
With vision driven by heart, I guess my art is really
just an extension of my arm. So i’ll lend a hand to fellow man,
hope you can comprehend that I don’t condescend but I collaborate.
So it exasperates me to know the blogs magistrate beef.
When external forces own the power to influence the internal
portions of our minds we’re in ruins. That’s why I roam T.O.
though, trying to reach the top of the food chain.
Bumping Shikari and Wu-Tang, hoping they’ll know my
crew’s name. STAG OUT like a deer with a flame thrower.
And my ego is leaf blower with the settings just a little bit lower,
Simply batting at the flames.

Round the corner, reach the apex.
I’m feeling like Ape-X.
It’s been a long trek,
found my footing when I lost my step.
Take one breath, to clear your chest.
This ain’t a goddamn test.
Objects are stable, ideas are volatile,
just try to balance and master yours,
all the while, evolving each and every passing day.
It’s a fact that Pearls and Bones
predeceased the human race,
To do that you negate the cynical,
Brush off subliminals,
Focus on your own proverbial pinnacle.
The hustle is real, the Stags are up next,
The A-Class, Apex.

And I’m banging’ on my chest,
I ain’t even gotta flex,
In a concrete jungle,
Where drones take arial pics

Doing lyrical flips and giving spiritual tips,
While my peers are trying tragically to be hip,
You slipped up, but you’re rocking Authentics,
Swear to god some say I’m the product of eugenics,
Uh, Strag Street the apex to where the true greats rest.
Thats Lawrence and Bloor. It doesn’t exist, it’s all in your mind,
like platform 9 and 3/4, bruh I’ma wizard with words,
and the coldest of beats are a Pearls induced blizzard.
So you better pack warmly, didn’t have anyone to come warn me.
I’m the natural selection, the result of innovation plus invention.
Like King Kong mid-fight with a chimp in a bull pen,
Got guerrilla tactics on top of these rap hits.
And I do the graphics while Pearls crafts the sonics,
Not a white boy using ebonics,
But a student to a culture that helped me deal with my problems.

Round the corner, reach the apex.
I’m feeling like Ape-X.
It’s been a long trek,
found my footing when I lost my step.
Take one breath, to clear your chest.
This ain’t a goddamn test.
Objects are stable, ideas are volatile,
just try to balance and master yours,
all the while, evolving each and every passing day.
It’s a fact that Pearls and Bones
predeceased the human race,
To do that you negate the cynical,
Brush off subliminals,
Focus on your own proverbial pinnacle.
The hustle is real, the Stags are up next,
The A-Class, Apex.
