about

Domestication is an emotionally fluid project about a man navigating his way through adulthood. While on his journey, he learns the value of empathy, logic, authenticity, and determination through his personal trials, as well as the trials of others. Some highly unique. Most highly ordinary.

Track Name: Human
Have you ever been depressed?
To the point where you don’t wanna have sex?
You don’t want to talk to your friends,
you don’t even wanna talk to your kids I have.
Wait a minute listen Miss Angelou say that make me Human.
I need to talk to somebody so I don’t lose it.
I’m leaning on the worlds' breast right now
She accepts me with open arms like baby sit down she say…

Nobody else ever went through in they life It’s no excuse
for you to miss daylight live in the night and miss your kids day life get off your ass get some social proof. (2x)

I said You ain’t going through nothing new, nothing new
Nobody else ever went through in they life tell the truth.
You scared of living, you scared to get in it
you think the sky is the limit, I don’t believe it go and handle your business you human.

Do you ever think about what you supposed to be, or what you finna do.
Can you make a decision between saving your money up for the future
or buying a pair of tennis shoes, nigga this ain’t middle school.
You wanna commit suicide now, cause your lifestyle ain’t like your neighbors
your lifestyle more like a scene from good times
struggle together to keep it together remember the good times my mama yelling….

You ain’t going through nothing new, nothing new
Nobody else ever went through in they life It’s no excuse
for you to miss daylight live in the night and miss your kids day life get off your ass get some social proof. (2x)

You ain’t going through nothing new, nothing new

You scared of living, you scared to get in it

What the fuck is the future to you?
To me it’s a colorful group of people forming up a community.
But you shoot me down every time I climb
I don’t understand this is you out your mind the solution is
Fuck your feeling this about all of us entrust your children
with the knowledge of us enough for centuries
this is simply a single opinion from a fellow human being hello human being
Your mama should have told ya…

“You ain’t going through

You ain’t going through nothing new, nothing new
Nobody else ever went through in they life tell the truth.
You scared of living, you scared to get in it

Track Name: Beacon
“Daddy have you liked anyone besides mommy?”

I’ll be back, I’ll be back, back with some bitches.
Gold Chain, Gold Chain, and on my wrist is,
a old thang, old thang ass ridiculous
My whole gang, whole gang come take some pictures
Don’t post em though.

Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.

Ain’t no future in that shit you talkin’.
Billion dollar mouth, nigga why you still walkin’ .
Opportunity in hand we could run a Boston,
but you still out here tryin’ to fuck bitches bruh. And.
Ain’t you a married man oh no.
No hoe shit bro, I live by the man code though,
Last time we spoke in, front of a group of kin folk
you imposed your opinion like cheating in sinful. I’m confused.
Your religion must not be working for your ohh.
Either that or your perception of truth skewed.
Same age we wasn’t raised by Youtube.
You know better but to do better you refuse.
Breeze cool, nigga now you see through.
You ain’t got you wife’s back how can you have mine conclusion drawn on an easel.
Pretty picture, till your bad bitch start to whisper.

Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.

Let me know you love me, beacon in the distance.
You show me the light and I won’t fuck with no more bitches I promise. Huh?
Let me know you love me, beacon in the distance.
You show me the light and I won’t fuck with no more bitches I promise. Again.Huh?

I’m known for fucking up especially when shit is good.
I get bored with the minutia hope thats understood.
I go out, I see medusa and she from the hood man.
A seducer I’m bout to dust off that College Park game.
Conscious say you wrong, still I step in the arena.
Karma protected long, fucked it up when I seen her.
Drink, Drink up. Sip on anything you can think of.
Bruh you good? I’m straight but I’m gone be here, this me cuz.
Me on the bar leaning, her outfit all teeny.
Body like she crawled out a bottle I swear she all Genie.
This club done lost meaning, I’m in my thoughts thinking.
What if I just call us a Uber and get the boat sinking?
Then the song change, Kilo Ali.
Followed by Outkast, OK back to reality woah!
Too much Tequilla, shots, too much for me bruh.
If this was back in the day baby I promise we’d fuck.
I should move on.

Hook
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.
Leave the Porch light on.

I’ll be back, I’ll be back, back with some bitches.
Track Name: The Others (feat. Athena Renee)
Are we transmitting?

Hello Governor how you feeling?
Hop on the bandwagon we bout to make a killing.
Money in the basement. Lock it away in the ceiling
till it’s time to spend it on something to play with.
Like a lady, ready to spread for me.
Instead of using her head she brings her bed to me.
Cause somebody told her I had some bread stashed
and she can get half if she give some head to me. Hmm.
It’s amazing you would think that, but you Black
so you gullible than a mutha fucker its just facts,
I can beat keep my receipt and take your ass back
for something to eat cause you’re that cheap.
You don’t know me I’m broke, this isn’t a news flash.
But you so used to sniffing a dudes ass
that the truth has to really bruise your soul;
and by then you don’t fuck with niggas no more.
I smell Willie Lynch’s stench in this shit.
House no father pops turned against.
Mama playing both roles living with a boat load
thirsty for something that a brother cannot quench so.
The guy choose that you are something to lie to.
Looking for love but the love is not inside you.
What’s there is, nail and hair appointments.
You’re hollowed out now the shits pointless.

Are we transmitting? Good.

I wanna change.
I’m not gonna be the same as others before me.
I’ve felt the pain.
I don’t wanna die the same as the others before me.

What’s in the trees old bird?
Is it a recipe for piece on Earth?
Or some regular nigga shit to label us the enemy
and make a white lady keep a piece on her person?
She nervous the coons ain’t changed.
No individuals born niggas join gangs
to find purpose brothers ain’t perfect with pain.
Nobody to guide us, so it drives us insane.
It’s no lane but sports and crack game for us.
Of course the dope slowed so niggas rap for bucks.
Now the chick from verse one she wetter than an aqueduct.
You fuck now she bout to have some ducks for you.
You don’t know what the fuck to do.
Give up school to support them pick up some tools,
Or skip town let things cool down.
Come back around when that baby becomes two.
Or eighteen, whatever the rule is.
You say you got dreams, you ain’t gone do shit.
That’s the same thing you been saying for years.
You’re hollowed out now sit down and have some beers.

I wanna change.
I’m not gonna be the same as others before me.
I’ve felt the pain.
I don’t wanna die the same as the others before me.
O!
As the others before me.
Yay!
As the others before me.
As the others before me.


Look high look low.
Look for anyone that talk loud and floss a lot of dough.
Looking to sell what isn’t mine.
Give a hand out, Lend a sister’s land out,
thinking that I’m special cause my mama say I standout.
Hoping to save me from these times.
In the spiritual we are growing stronger no longer the slaves to machines.
Can you hear all the cries and the screams
say I’m looking for someone anyone to love me.
I’m looking for someone to love me.
O…
Track Name: Sugar Water
Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid.
Because it plays with your brain!

Tell me something I don’t know.
Is the world gone end? I don’t know.
Is the aliens coming, probably homie
so I’mma go pack up my good clothes
and my suitcase. It’s a new place friend
so I’mma leave here foe the roof cave in.
See it’s a new building the outside is pretty
but why in the fuck all the rooms in here shitty?
Plenty of money, plenty of people
but most of us fat and we stuck under steeples.
Following crosses making pastors bosses.
We pay the offering and they somewhere balling it.
I got ideas i’d rather not share
cause I’m looking up and there’s snipers in here.
He said that their fake, then puts on his shades
then pass me a cup and say drank this Kool-Aid.

Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid.
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid)
Cause it plays with your brain!
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid.
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Cause it will drive you insane!
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)

I’m running for President.
Tell me one of them I won’t be better than.
For the critics, I develop leather skin.
No democrats and no republicans.
Only Bloods and Crips, how about this?
All of the gangs’ll be running this shit.
Does that make some since?
Well neither do you?
You rocking that suit but you acting a fool.
So now I’m on alert, cause this is my earth
and you tearing it down passing Kool-Aid around.
You thought I was playing when pistols came out.
With no hesitation Ch Ch klicka Pow!
Wow! What’s up now you want an apology?
That’s like a gay guy that’s sorry for sodomy.
Probably offer me prophecy told through the lottery
you should be locked up for robbery.
Preacher Preacher, get the hell on.
If Jesus need me he’ll call up my phone.
Land of the free, home of the brave.
You crazy as hell if you drank that Kool-Aid.

Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid.
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Cause it plays with your brain!
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid.
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Cause it will drive you insane!
(Please don’t drank the Kool-Aid!)
Track Name: Eighty (feat. Aleon Craft)
Since the birth of me, I been told what I’m supposed to be.
But I wanna be free somebody call the nurse it’s an emergency.
Take me off the plane, people it’s about to go down. Aye!
What a sight to see, when a grown man begs and pleads.
For his house, his car, his kids, his wife, a job he don’t want to leave.
So he buys a piece, now he doesn’t give a god damn.
It’s too late. So I sang.

O…

It amazes me, each day that I breath.
How a mother could love a mutha fucka that’ll pack up and run from his seeds.
Says it’s time that he needs you’ll believe the smiles of a clown. Aye!
So she finds her sleeve, a nigga she don’t really know.
Let him beat the pussy as many times as he want give him keys to the doe.
Things are better than before now the daddy wants to come around.
It’s too late. So I sang.

O…

You must be outta your mind.
Cause you’re wasting my time.
I don’t need you I’m doing just fine.
You must be outta your mind.
Cause you’re wasting my time.
I don’t need you I’m doing just fine.
I’m doing just fine.

Sometimes we stuck, really need luck.
Really need bucks baby really need chucks.
How we end up always in a rut.
Feeling like life took a foot too ya nuts. Shucks.
It must feel good to feel more pain
when the Tide get low then you need more Gain.
Cleaning up my act got a neat campaign.
Stacking my cheese I don’t drink champagne.
I’m good now wish a nigga would now.
Cadillac brain open turning up the Boog Brown.
Still a lil hood clown fried fish plate with the mash and the collards
sweet tea getting put down.
Put Down life over bass, mic to the face
then I tell a little story how my minds outta space.
Gone. How did I arrive in a place
where the music is my grace and I can rightfully say.

O…
Track Name: Breathing's Beauty
Do…

I don’t deserve you at all.
I dont deserve the praise and the applause.
When I first heard that you were coming,
yeah I got scared I wanted to run off.
Them black and white pictures,
had me reading all types of scriptures
I don’t believe but I needed life descriptors
to decipher life before you fight to get here.Huh.
There’s not enough time for that.
You’re expected and I’m strapped for cash.
I do a song and dance for people who are fans
don’t see a dime these can’t be plans.
For the future so mine is gossip by the water cooler
Or lines for former students, feeling stupid.
Life is ugly, but breathing’s beauty.

Do…

The wheels in motion they say they’re inducing
cause a C-section just may be too intrusive.
Those nervous fits of I don’t wanna do this
turn to I can’t wait to take you to the movies.
Up and down I’m so fucking stupid.
To turn a night of passion into two kids.
You bout to be a pops that’s what the truth is.
So stop the selfishness she needs your help in which to do this.
Enough. The Doctor comes in and drugs her up.
The smile on my face is just for her.
Inside I feel like I’m out to bust.
We joke and laugh about the fragile past
of a union that ain’t guaranteed to last.
Between us, see us we us for you two.
Nah. I’m here for you to call me dad when you can.
She’s fully dilated. Constant contraction start the pushing baby.
The Prince is crowing I had to sit down then,
before I drop some tears that you can drown in.
My heart is pounding I’m back to my feet.
Another one’s coming I’m getting weak.
Two little minds I’m gone have to teach.
This moment is beautiful no need to speak.

Do…
