"Mainstream" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 22/9/2014

So Is It... " Your Dream "...
To Become MAINSTREAM... ?!?

I CANNOT Lie Sometimes My Mind...
Has Been Inclined To Visualise A Time Where I ...
Could Be... " THAT GUY "... !?!
That People LOVED Like WARM Sunshine ... !!!
But Recognised That DARKNESS Rides...
With Getting A Slice of The DEVILS' Pie... !!!!
Because MANY It Seems Now Seem To BELIEVE...
That ILLUMINATED Teams Run MAINSTREAM Scenes...

.................... “ Know what I mean !?! “ .............…

So If That’s True Mainstreamers Move...
With SHADY Dudes And Females TOO... !!!!!!!

... “ Mainstream for two ? “
.... “ Nah dude, just you !
.... I think I’ll cool, and do my do,
.... for the heads who choose,
.... to listen to men who deal in sense,
.... instead of those who present big hype and pretence,
.... for dollars and cents from, Corporate Heads “

You Can See It In Sports...
I’ve Competed With Guys Who’ve Received AWARDS... !!!
Been In NATIONAL Sides And Watched And Thought...

.... “How are they mainstream,
.... when they’re clearly weak,
.... and aren’t better than me !?!“

But Then WAKE UP From My Daydreams... !!!!!
But RECOGNISE... That To Join The TOP FLIGHT...
Some Athletes Find That They Have To Compromise...
But That’s Alright...
The MAINSTREAM Can Bring STRESS And CAN DEPRESS... !!!!!
Some Mainstream Heads Have Met With DEATH...
Because of Their DESIRE For The Mainstream To HIRE ...
Their EGOS For SHOW And YES... BRAVADO... !!!
Because They LOVED Being KNOWN Wherever They’d Go... !!!
.............. Mainstream For Me .... NO ................. !!!
But I Want Some DOUGH From Their Pots of Gold...
Cos' TOO MANY Ho’s Have Got The HIGH Roll For SELLING THEIR SOUL... !!!!!
It’s Time For TRUTH SAYERS To Get MAINSTREAM Paper... !!!
And Start To Turn Heads In Their RIGHTEOUS Benz’... !!!!!
Cos’ NO Rubbing Shoulders Or BENDING Like Folders... !!!!!
Because WE ARE Soldiers Whose Wordplay Is BOLDER... !!!!!
Than Twerking For JERKS Cos' We DIRTY Their Shirts With Our Written Works... !!!!!
And When We PERFORM We’re... BEYOND The Norm... !!!
We ARE Something MORE Than MAINSTREAM TYPE Whores...
So Let Me Make CLEAR MAINSTREAMERS Adhere To... "CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS"...
To Get Their POSITION In The MASSES VISION But Like... “ Q-Tip said “...
.... “I ain’t messing with them til’ I cop a deal,
.... that gives me exposure, and spotlight to steal !“

So That I CAN EAT BEYOND Where They Be... !!!
Because NOW The Streets Would... RECOGNISE Me... !!!!!

.................. “ Big Virge In CONVERTS ? “ ..............

.................... “Maybe a... Bentley !?! “ .....................

See THAT’s How Worms Turn... LUSTING LUXURIES ...
LEADING To GREED And EGO FILLED Deeds..... !!!!!
To Get BIG MONEY And FORSAKE Artistry... !!!!!
I Just Want A Piece To Live... Comfortably...
And Write What I See Debt FREE... HAPPILY... !!!!!
A Couple of MILL’ Should Do Me NICELY... !!!
Then I Could Just Chill And Build LEGACIES...
of Poetic ART That Touched MANY HEARTS From NEAR To AFAR..........................

Because I STAYED SHARP And Just Took A Small Part...
So That I Could SEE A Part of The Scene That Is DEEMED As...

............................ “ Mainstream “ .......................
