Sugar coats never seemed that sweet to me, eventually, I’ll look past the disguise and see, what was meant to be…
There’s always something more, behind what we hide, always a silver lining, our pride forces us to deny, although reality might not be your cup of tea, it will always be mine. So say it straight, hit me with the punchline, but spare me the white lies.
I want to see the light, even if it hurts my eyes. Because I would rather look for beauty in the ugliest truth. Than look for truth, in the most beautiful lie.
Introducing Mr.Wondz, one of the dopest up and coming producers on the UK urban music scence, had the pleasure of creating this mural style peice. Based on his indentity and his energy , mr wonds is a colorful creative, but i find a lot of his work to be more than what just hits the surface. I wanted to create a painting that demanded a second look for the producers whos beats demand a second listen!
heres a track he produced for grime artist cadet in 2015 called ‘slut’
The waves danced like devine feline across the shoreline, to the tune of a moon so full ,it could have worn out a ware wolf. she was refelcting the suns light when the days got darker, she went through her phases but she was always there, on time, in rhythim. contantly influencing under the influence. A guiding light in the blinding night, some payed her no mind, she was out of thier scope.. but to the creatures that didnt sleep at night….she was a beacon of hope
Peace in one eye, love in the other, too blessed to be stressed and too cool to be bothered …
not that she didnt care, or couldn’t notice…Even those wo claimed to know her wouldn’t know this, but at one point she cared more than most did. The winters of life had forced her to grow colder shoulders, but after a while its was too hard too ignore what her soul had told her…. so she took a trip, took a chance, trusting the cos=mic forces to bring her a new balance…
she did just that, then came back, with peace in one eye and love in the other.
“We are all here for a reason on a particular path You don’t need a curriculum to know that you’re apart of the math Cats think I’m delirious but I’m so damn serious That’s why I expose my soul to the globe; the world I’m tryin’ to make it better for these little boys and girls I’m not just another individual My spirit is a part of this, that’s why it’s spiritual But I get my hymns from him So it’s not me, it’s he, that’s lyrical I’m not a miracle, I’m a heaven sent instrument My rhythmatic regiment navigates melodic notes For your soul and your mental That’s why I’m instrumental, vibrations is what I’m into Yeah I need my loot by rent day But that ain’t what gives me the heart of Kunta Kinte I’m tryin’ to give us us free like Sinke I can’t stop, that’s why I’m hot Determination, dedication, motivation I’m talking to you of my many inspirations When I say I can’t let you or self down If I were on the highest cliff, on the highest riff And if you slipped off the side, and clinched on to your life, In my grip. I would never ever let you down And when these words are found Let it be known that God’s penmanship has been signed With a language called love That’s why my breath is felt by the death And while my words are heard and confined to the ears of the blind I too dream in color and in rhyme
So I guess I’m one of a kind in a full house Cause whenever I open my heart, my soul or my mouth A touch of god reigns out.”
This poem by j. Ivy. was recorded on the track “never let you down” on kanye wests graduation album in 2004 .
“The force that unites the elements to become all things is Love, also called Aphrodite; Love brings together dissimilar elements into a unity, to become a composite thing. Love is the same force that human beings find at work in themselves whenever they feel joy, love and peace. Strife, on the other hand, is the force responsible for the dissolution of the one back into its many, the four elements of which it was composed.”
