west creative


Penitentiary chances, the devil dances

And eventually answers to the call of Autumn

All of them fallin’ for the love of ballin’

Got caught with thirty rocks, the cop look like Alec Baldwin

Inter century anthems based off inner city tantrums

Based off the way we was branded

Face it, Jerome get more time than Brandon

And at the airport they check all through my bag and

Tell me that it’s random

But we stay winning, this week has been a bad massage

I need a happy ending and a new beginning

And a new fitted and some job opportunities that’s lucrative

This the real world, homie, school finished

They done stole your dreams, you dunno’ who did it

I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS

I won’t be satisfied til all my niggas get it, get it?

Is hip hop, just a euphemism for a new religion

The soul music for the slaves that the youth is missing

This is more than just my road to redemption

Malcolm West had the whole nation standing at attention

As long as I’m in Polo’s smilin’ they think they got me

But they would try to crack me if they ever see a black me

I thought I chose a field where they couldn’t sack me

If a nigga ain’t running shootin’ a jump or running a track meet

But this pimp is, at the top of mount Olympus

Ready for the World’s game, this is my Olympics

We make ‘em say ho cause the game is so pimpish

Choke a southpark writer with a fishstick

I insisted to get up offa this dick

And these drugs, niggas cant resist it

Remind me of when they tried to have Ali enlisted

If I ever one of the greatest nigga, I must have missed it!

I need more drinks and less lights

And that American Apparal girl in just tights

She told the director she tryna get in a school

He said “take them glasses off and get in the pool”

It’s been a while since I watched the tube

Cause like a crip said,

“I got way too many blues for any more bad news”

I was looking at my resume feeling real fresh today

They rewrite history I don’t believe in yesterday

And what’s a black beetle anyway, a fucking roach

I guess that’s why they got me sitting in fucking coach

But God said I need a different approach

Cause people is looking at me like I’m sniffing coke

It ain’t funny anymore try different jokes

Tell 'em hug and kiss my ass, x and o

And kiss the ring while they at it,

do my thing while I got it

Play strings for the dramatic

Endening that wack shit

Act like I ain’t had a belt in two classes

I ain’t got it I’m coming after whoever who has it

I’m coming after whoever, who has it!?

You blowing up, that’s good, fantastic

That y'all, its like that y'all

I don’t really give a fuck about it at all

Cause the same people that tried to black ball me

Forgot about two things, my black balls

-K. West

Favorite Solos 2015 - 2016

Favorite Solos 2014 - 2015

Just to give everybody a quick geography lesson, Palm Beach is home to Mar-a-Lago. Right across the waterway is the creatively named West Palm Beach. And while Palm Beach is an ideal place for rich people to live and schmooze, West Palm Beach has crime rates on par with Chicago, a place that our president may very well actually be scared of. According to Alyssa, the nearby Delray Beach “has a reputation for being the drug rehab clinic capital of the U.S.” Lake Worth also has some major violence problems. So basically, if one of America’s most violent cities decided to lay a medieval-style siege to Mar-a-Lago, they might be able to pull it off for a hot minute.

“[West Palm Beach] is a whole different world than Palm Beach,” said Jim. “Palm Beach doesn’t have gunshots going off at 3:00 in the morning, or dead bodies being found being routine news. They don’t have to worry about meth-heads or gangs.”

Furthermore, it seems like those gangs (which are already a huge problem for West Palm Beach) really don’t like the dichotomy that our sitting president seems to represent. “There’s a gas station on one of the routes Trump travels to Mar-A-Lago,” Jim told us. “The owner is a big Trump supporter, and rolled out a big ‘Welcome President Trump’ sign. I gas up there one day, and the next time I pull in, the sign is down and covered with graffiti. It’s from one of the gangs here. They put the biggest tag on the ’T’ in Trump to make it look like 'rump.’ I walk in to pay, and when I asked about the sign, the owner told me 'It happened the first night.’ I can’t think of a more WPB greeting for the president. It’s the differences between the two worlds.”

So when President Trump comes to town and redirects police manpower toward his security, it’s actually making things worse.
