This Track is inspired by the "strange fruit" that hung from trees that tainted the Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, dirt red.. As a man who understands the legacy of music I am standing on, I have a responsiblity to make music that reflect the excellence of my ancestry.

It is my interpretation of a reminder to what "black music" is all about. This tune is my idea of AUDIO CHITTLINS! It's nasty... it's funky... I took all the "wrong notes" and put them in with "good notes" to make something from the past and present collide to create a future...


The Old folk say
you gotta moan sometimes

Clean that evil out
get it out right now!!!

The ONLY way
to scare the devil out

You gotta get ready
To moan sometimes

Go tell the devil
to get the hell outta hear
In Order to scare the devil
you gotta MOAN MOAN MOAN!!!

The Old Folk say
You gotta get on a bended knee

but sometimes my knees HUIT
from prayin all the time

So I gotta

Walk it out.. I gotta .. walk in faith... I gotta ..walk it out

And know everythang gon be alright!!!!
