'Artists' ... A Poem written by Big Virge 8/2/2016

MAN What Is It With ARTISTS... ?!?
When It Comes To The Markets...
Where They... Wanna Be SEEN... !!!

SEEING Money... And Their ARTISTRY...
REACH The Peeps' Who They're TRYING To Reach...

Well There Is A PART TWO To The Q-Tip Rule... !!!!!
A LOT of Young Artists Act... STRANGELY... !!!!!
And RUN A LOT of TALK That's CRAZY... !!!!?!!!!

Masta Ace Was Right...

Some of Them Are... " alright "...
But... NOT TOO Many... !!!

Quite A Few Move SMELLY... !!!
Cos' They're Just NOT READY …
To Talk Like... " JENNY "... !!!

ESPECIALLY When...
Other Artists Send RESPECT To Them...
And Suggest That They Should CONNECT And Blend...
The Styles They Have Like DJ's When They Use... 1210's... !!!!!

But Many Get EDGY ...
When Their Peers Drop HEAVY... !!!
And Are NOT AFRAID To Collaborate... !!!!!!!!

The Question Is... WHY... ?!?
Well... MANY Are Sly...
And Are QUICK To DENY...
OTHER Talents A Try...
Because of Their FRIGHT...
of Being.... OUT SHINED.... !!!

EGO DRIVEN Minds Whose Jealousy DEFINES...
Insecurities And IMPURITIES In How They CHOOSE To Ride... !!!!!

LEGGY Types USE Sexy Vibes To Get To The Guys...
Who Decide WHO SHINES Under... " SPOTLIGHTS "... !!!!!

But Some Get PIMPED By OTHER Artists... !?!
Who USE Their LOOSENESS To Get To Producers... !!!
NO Confucius Or Stewards To STOP These ABUSERS...
SUCKING Like HOOVERS And... Martha Stewarts... !!!!!

Until They Get CAUGHT Behaving Like WHORES... !!!!!
So I'm GLAD To Work With Dudes Whose Experience PROVES....
That Meeting Someone NEW Can Be GOOD For You... !!!

If They're GOOD At What They Do... !!!
And Their Vibe Is..... " Cool ".....

NOT EVERYONE ... And That's The TRUTH... !!!
But Staying With One Crew Is NOT Always Shrewd... !!!
Especially When As Time Transcends...............................

ARGUMENTS Bring An END ...
To Something... " STRONG "... !?!
Because Some Heads Get TIED In KNOTS...
Because They're LOCKED In FEAR And DREAD... !!!

... Rather Than Common Sense... ?

The Common Sense Approach DOESN'T Walk Down Roads...
Where You're ALONE In ... ARROGANT Zones ... !!!!!

Things Can Turn COLD If Your Head ROAMS...
In A Place Where ATTITUDE... IS Your Home... !!!

SAVE Your Attitude For Your PERFORMANCES Dude …!!!

Because When You CHOOSE To EXHIBIT Such Moves...
When People Make Moves To Work WITH YOU... ?!?

It DOESN'T Serve Well When Your Head SWELLS...
Because Your Mind Gets LOST INSIDE...

Your World of FEAR And Thoughts UNCLEAR...
NO MAN Is An ISLAND But Artists Be TRYING...
To STAND By PRIDE... WITHOUT Other Lions... !?!?!

It's AMAZING To SEE Within ARTISTRY...
The Levels of Devils Whose Mental Just REVELS...
In Being...... " UNSETTLED "...... !!!!

Because Their Heart ISN'T IN Their Art... !!!!!!
Insecurity STARTS To TEAR Heads... A P A R T...

When ART That IS PURE THROWS Them OFF COURSE... !!!!!
It's REALLY NOT CLEVER To THINK That You're BETTER...
Or THAT You're ABOVE Working With Someone...

Who MIGHT HELP YOU IMPROVE ...
Cos' They Bring Something NEW...
To The Table You USE ...
For Your Artistry To BLOOM... !!!

TOO MANY AREN'T Schooled So NOW Act The FOOL... !!!
Cos' They THINK That They're COOL...
Because of A Tune With Some Youtube Views... !?!

WAKE UP And SMELL The Coffee ...
And STOP Being SO COCKY... !!!!!

Look At The BIGGER PICTURE... !!!
Businesses Make FIGURES...
Through PARTNERSHIPS That TRIGGER...

BIGGER And... BETTER Things... !!!!!

INSTEAD of... "Limiting"...
Themselves To STUPID THINKING...
That Leaves Their BUSINESS...

.............. SINKing............. !!!!!!

To Me Art Should Be...
Like GROWING Trees BRANCHING OUT.....
NOT STUCK In Mud That DRAGS It... down...

Some Artists NEED To THINK ... BEFORE...
BURNING Bridges That Could DRAW...
A Path To MORE Than What They HOARD... !!!

NO MONOPOLY... OWNS MY BOARD... !!!

Creating... PROPERLY...
IS The LAW That I STAND FOR...
And THAT'S For SURE... !!!!!

I'll Collab' With ANYONE …
Whose BASS Lines THUMP... !!!
But DON'T Play DUMB …
Cos' Neo AIN'T The ONLY ONE... !!!!!

I'm One of MANY Whose Flows ROCK STEADY...
But KNOW I'm HEAVY So... DON'T DO Petty... !!!

But RIGHT Now SEE That TOO MANY Are SMELLY...
And Acting Like... They're HOT ALREADY... ?!!!?
When What They Have Are UNSETTLED Bellies... !!!!!

Ya See Artistry DIES...
When CREATIVE Minds CHOOSE To COLLIDE...
INSTEAD of Ride The Wave... TOGETHER... !!!
I'm A ... DIFFERENT Kind of Fella... !!!
NO Bending Spoons Like URI GELLAR... !!!

... I Believe In STELLAR Artistry... !!!
So That Folks Can See How UNITY...
Can Breed STRONG Teams Where Artists FEED... !!!

So We ALL Can EAT Rather Than COMPETE... !!!
To SEE Artistry Be What We... DEFEAT... ?!?

Because of These ASSES... !!!
... Now CLAIMING To Be...

The HARDEST And SMARTEST... !!!!!

Instead of Just Being Cool...
Just Like … THE BEST …

……..… ARTISTS ………
