In “Paradise Found”, over the TALK IS CHEAP 2 rap contest beat prod. by Young Aspect, PROPHETRY the prophet rapper lets loose a flurry of syllables to vanquish the competition.
“Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven”
— John Milton, “Paradise Lost”
My pet serpent’s a wordsmith, slither in shadows, lurking;
Deliver sermons to turn the uncertain to scourges.
When I spit in parceltongue, don’t start to march or run;
Bite my apple twice, let there be light, the dark is done!
You were dead dumb, followed my breadcrumbs,
Look where it led, hon! I saved you, gave you a brain and then some.
You paved over Eden, laid concrete, depleted these trees
‘Til the park is not but a parking lot in the street.
You tossed the pair of dice that cost you paradise; very nice!
Your new rubric is hubris, fused with the rarest mind.
Your paradigm’s an abusive quest for a pair of dimes;
No error, this terror loosed is a noose YOU designed.
Rivers pumped with sewage, lakes of chemical waste;
Welcome to the Hell you and your brethren create…
Say you’ll change your Fate, sadly talk is cheap;
The Father’s gone, now I’m your Daddy, so stop to kiss my cheek.
