GETTIN DOWN

(produced by Chemical Problem

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

 to get up!….

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

I might sit down…

I might get down…

but that won’t mean I’ve given up!

I might have me some me time…

But in the mean time…

I’m visualisin’ gettin up!

____

VERSE 1

Just gettin down to get up, lit it up, Hit the switch

lluminated the environment with lighting, now you’re enlightened.

Got inspiration from Bristol to Tasmania, Small World to Ozora (temporary Zions)

Shamballah to Boom Town, From London to Brighton,

From the Magpie to the Upper Florentine to Chi Wholefoods with Rainbo Lion

and from Matter to the Hive dons switched my mics on.

From supporting Chester P in Passing Clouds to Congo Natty in Lakota,

Zion Train in Trinity, I’m not sure which was doper.

Or performing in Stonehenge as a Bard among the Druids,

I kept it real, and kept it Hip-Hop with a reggae flow that’s fluid.

But when depression set in I didn’t feel like reppin

I kept indoors to release… the pain and the stressin

It’s all exalted, the curse was a blessin

time to write and time to heal, and I’ll come back with brand new weapons

the pen is mightier than the sword, and still ain’t no half steppin,

I’m full steppin to steppers dub with all my synchro bredrin!

__

CHORUS

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

Just gettin down…

 to get up!….

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

Sometimes you got to get down

…to get up!

I might sit down…

I might get down…

but that won’t mean I’ve given up!

I might have me some me time…

But in the mean time…

I’m visualisin’ gettin up!

Just gettin down

Just gettin down

Just gettin down

 to get up!…. x2

Just because you aren’t making progress as fast as you think you should does not mean you’re not making progress. Keep going! Relax, but keep going. And shine.


 

Planet Earth

CHORUS

Planet Earth, …concrete on damaged turf

Where mans have burst… dams n worse for a fatter purse

Mother Earth… concrete on honoured turf…

I kiss the rose quartz on her alter… for her worth. x2

__

Standing Rock… hard… like an obelisk

I fell in the cauldron as a baby like Taliesin and Obelix

I boil pots of healing herbs, algae and plants  like Getafix

If you need chlorella, neem, or CBD see me to get a fix.

Prescipicise of global warming on the edge of mass flooding

Guess ya wish politicians and energy companies were less money grubbing

Earth goes through her cycles, Earth will be fine,

but is this humanity’s time to go… or time to shine?

Let’s change it all, we don’t need these chains at all, do they use their brains at all?

It’s unsustainable… if it’s not sustainable…

Sharing is caring, whatever’s available giving,

solar panels, car batteries, crops… Sustainable living.

Maybe we need to reassess priorities and pollution’s the penalty,

living in babylon… and music’s the remedy,

Babylons just a state of mind… and music’s the therapy…. maybe it’s high time for renewable energy.

Where mans have burst… dams n worse for a fatter purse

Mother Earth… concrete on honoured turf…

I kiss the rose quartz on her alter… for her worth.


 

Sweet Ting

VERSE 1:

Sweet Ting,  the epicentre of each other’s comfort zones,

ignoring the vibrations from our mobile phones,

when we’ve got to get up for work, missions or roam,

its hard, it’s oh so hard for me to leave the girl alone.

It’s difficult leaving her, I believe in her.

She’s a sweet ting like Stevia.

Reading up on Dzogchen buddha, cooking up the healthy food, huh?

She’s a sweet ting like coconut sugar,

she’s wise, full of good info and the best advice,

her wisdom’s a good addition to anyone’s life

She’s compassionate with X amount of empathy,

I’m so lucky to share with this angel Heaven sent to me.

___

CHORUS:

her smile is the sweetest ting in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her hug is the sweetest ting in the world…I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her kiss is the sweetest ting in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

Her love is…the sweetest ting  in the world. I’m so unbelievably lucky my sweet tings this girl.

___

outro?:

We walk through the orchard of delight

holding hands n picking apples for an apple pipe.

Her eyes are blue with gold… just like

…two circles of labradorite…

 

(Dungeons and Dragons)

electric blue illumination of clouds, wondering aloud, …and standing proud,

honest communication leads to open heart relation, …empathy over retaliation.

Competition’s not better than collaboration,

more beneficial than nationalism’s seeing just one nation

love expressed through the subtlest of gestures…

open-ended benefit, I’m existing for her pleasure.

open-ended benefit, open hearted,

open minded, not hard to find its always there,

it’s not something we find but something we remember,

remembering to remember with a tribe that’s tender as fierce,

yin energy receives but yang pierces,

weird it’s unfamiliar but at the same time home,

between each breath’s where the spirit guides roam… stop…. Pause. (16)

Breathe…

believe in yourself, admit your fears,

now your braver than you were, see what a love warrior shares

is not the spoils of killing but stories of will and willing

to love and learn, and build bridges we once chose to burn.

Like the saying, “anger is sadness’ bodyguard”.

Let go of the anger, let down your guard.

Don’t try and be soft just be…

Just be… don’t try and be hard. (8)

VERSE 1

I wish for everyone to feel relaxed, like just after you’ve climaxed,

Ninjas vs Wizards… (edited)

It’s like wizards versus agents, ninjas vs angels,

yeah wizards and angels vs ninjas and agents,

ninjas vs wizards x4

It’s a little bit ridiculous isn’t it,… but from my perspective it’s just the way it is.

Wizards vs ninjas. Ninjas vs wizards. X2

MI5 and CIA’s agents and mercenary ninjas

overseas with an economic hitman’s hit list.

There’s no need to hide my face, look they’ve already seen my facebook,

we profiled ourselves in the empire’s database. Oops.

But Matrix agents and ninjas could never beat noble wizards,

who choose not to fight or compete – they’re just snowflakes in my blizzards.

Angels vs agents, ninjas vs wizards,

and in a way it’s racist if we blame it all on lizards..

We were never krusties, we were Rebel Alliance, ignorance blinds us to US and UKs Evil Empires, stealing oil, splitting atoms, abusing Jedi science, but the sins of our politicians never defined us.

Now I’m more like bendu, I see the illusion of light and dark, it’s all exalted benefit and I’m just playing my part. Is that light, good, positive? It’s all love from the start, so I laugh at nations and corporations while waving my staff.

like Darth Vader on E, or james bond, he’s

more like that Alchemist double o seven John Dee

but not at her majesty’s secret service unless her majesty’s mother earth it’s the rapper with the deep poems or poet with rap verses.

It’s like wizards versus agents, evil ninjas vs angels, yeah wizards and angels vs ninjas and agents,

ninjas vs wizards x4

It’s a little bit ridiculous isn’t it,.. but from ny perspective it’s just the way it is.

Wizards vs ninjas. Ninjas vs wizards. X2

BUt it’s the illusion of division, like war between religions… My ego saw separation where there isn’t… Everything is one and that’s a given… It’s your reflection you’ve forgiven… You’ve got what you need so look within.

I’m one with the Lord, and the Lord is with me

I’m one with the Goddess, and the Goddess is with me

I’m one with the Tao, and the Tao is with me

I’m one with the quantum force, and the force is with me…

 


BLISS + JOY = NOW

I’m the master of time and space…

I ‘m the joker, the King, the Queen and the ACE.

I’m abundance for freedom and power,

I’m bliss plus joy equals now is the hour.

I’m a Melchizedek advising kings, king of peace

I’m Elijah mocking spiritually impotent priests,

“you have no power over me” – ‘Labrynth’ –

I’m like David Bowies codpiece,

that means I’m the centre of attention, the centre of the bindu point z/ero point energy where peace releases tension.

I’m the master of time and space, one love intervention,

agent of good karma and good angels are my henchmen.

I am the master of time and space…

I am the joker, the King, the Queen and the ACE.

I am abundance for freedom and power,

I am bliss plus joy equals now is the hour.

___

Super Kev with the money and the funding,

the freedom, power and abundance to invest in some things

positive, to spread love and wisdom to the community.

My super power’s increasing love and unity.

You wanna learn the skill? Chill, the workshop’s sold out.

I’ll put you on the waiting list, I got you, no doubt.

My super speed n super strength leaves my push bike worn out,

and lovers passed out on cloud 9 like “ah wow”.

My super hero mansion fosters love and community

Altruistic philanthropist with tree-houses between two trees.

Ewok village, some of the workshops in yurts shock

visitors to the love lodge not ready for nudity.

Psychedelic decor, it looks like Ozora

Meets Wayne Mansion, meets Cirque de Soleil on tour, huh?

Children teaching adults Bible, Koran and Torah

Taught to respect all cultures, know their rights and the laws, huh?

____

I love smiles, I travel to events for miles for smiles.

I don’t get excited by travelling to Ikea for tiles.

I love hugs, they make me happier than booze or drugs,
With middleclass ravers… or rudeboy shotta thugs.
I love meeting friends through miraculous serendipity,
linking team members through spectacular synchronicity.
I love watching cartoons, and spitting raps like harpoons
…I love star-gazing under dark moons.
Did I say love cartoons like Steven Universe? Thought he was truly cursed
til he mastered his powers… and he speaks the cutest words!
I love deep stories like detailed anime arcs.
I love sunny days under trees in the breeze in play parks.
I love performing, post-performance feedback’s heart-warming,
the next generation’s storming the frontiers of a new age dawning.
I love children, kids from Nepal to Filton.
I love sub bass. Look, I just love sharing poetry on facebook.

Young man – talk to older women if you want to learn

what to say to girls your age in your world

Wise women prefer good conversation,

But probably won’t say no to diamonds or pearls.

The Holy Grail to me was a job that doesn’t depress me.

Pays for the rent… but does’t over-stress me

or was it a Goddess as wise as she’s sexy

to love me, hug me and bless me, and vice versa, Thank you and Yes please!

The Holy Grail was to have both fun and prosperity

Some dreams come true, may I stay healthy n get more wealthy,

not to get on Instagram to take the arrogant selfies

but to help people like when I had nothing good people helped me.

Every little cell in my body is happy and well see

Each cell glowing with love, deep rooted like Elm trees,

Showered in love from the cosmos above us,

To shine light on road for man dem, gal dem, sisters and brothers.

 

UR INFINITE #spiritual #conscious #hiphop #ukhiphop #kevthepoet

You’re infinite (poetic Hip-Hop with live violin)

    

Ice and Lava

Stepping out of the water into the fire
Out of reception of the mystical to share and inspire

all’s one, water flows, fire burns, love will entice.
all is one, liquid fire – lava, solid water – ice.

Stepping out of the water into the fire
Out of reception of the mystical to share and inspire

all’s one, water flows, fire burns, love will entice.
all is one, liquid fire – lava, solid water – ice.

_

The dark side isn’t more powerful, just more seductive,
eventually it would consume you, it’s more disruptive.

But accept that’s within you, no need to duck it
or hide from it, your shadow is with you so love it.

It may seem easier to express anger than express sadness.
But repression of depression only leads to madness,

and expression of the lessons leads to big rewards
we’re just concepts with concepts so put down your swords

that barely exist, ignore judgments of people who just do
not care. The people who do care won’t judge you.

Don’t hide fear and sadness behind anger,
These days I tell someone I trust or trust the page and write a banger.

Big picture’s infinite possibilities, why limit your possibilities?
We can’t see the big picture with limited thought but feel it with limitless ease.

Big picture’s infinite possibilities, why limit your possibilities?
We can’t see the big picture with limited thought but feel it with limitless ease.

What planet-saving inventions will come out tomorrow? Conversations healing our sorrow,
or positive aliens pop round to borrow a lawnmower and finish off braiding your cornrow?

What’ll pop up from the chamber under the Sphinx’s paw?
More treasures than you’ll find on the grill on Chinx’s jaw?

What technology will make our whole lifestyles obsolete?
Prophecy may cause military property to fall at your feet.

When will a billionaire finally watch the Ted Talk “6 ways
Mushrooms can save the world”, and transfer the cash to Paul Stamets?

“This transaction will probably take six days”
and we can sit back and let the fun guy with fungi save this planet.

Some fungi can eat oil slicks AND radiation,
These days I find solutions online instead of cheats for Playstation.

We don’t know… if the next generation
will see borders and nations or pure inspiration,

will see through all the BS and simply not support government
that work for corporations causing just more sufferin’.

_

Most mainstream political parties in most 1st world countries
are corrupt from the inside out, but it’s too late to hunt me.

Cos the truth seekers outnumber the greedy, believe me
And one day soon the truth knowers will outnumber the ignorant

and the truth is truth doesn’t exist, it’s subjective,
perspective, the truth is that we’re ALL ignorant

and paradoxically omniscient…
We’d all be omnipotent if we weren’t ALL omnipotent.

How can there be a God unless it’s science, or unless science is nature? Don’t doubt that

includes all the science we’ve not worked out yet and may never work out, yep!

{And that’s each and every one of us. Astrophysicists sum us up.

As star dust, and that’s sun dust. Mainstream dumbs us down? I’ll fun us up. (chill, chill)} (not sure whether to keep this double-time bit or replace it with the half-speed that folllows)

…And that’s each and every one of us…

…Astrophysicists sum us up…

…As star dust, and that’s sun dust…

…Mainstream dumbs us down? I’ll fun us up…

_

All is one, that’s what’s up.
Feeling down? Well that’s what’s up

All is one, that’s what’s up.
Feeling down? Well that’s what’s up

_

All is one? Liquid fire – lava, solid water – ice.
From icebergs to volcanoes, from Buddha to Christ.

But don’t forget the goddess Mary’s Magdalene and Mary mother,
Don’t forget mother nature, or the goddess lover.

All is one? Liquid fire – lava, solid water – ice.
From icebergs to volcanoes, from Buddha to Christ.

But don’t forget the goddess Mary’s Magdalene and Mary mother,
Don’t forget mother nature, or the goddess lover.

For My Like-Minded Outsiders

Me and my like-minded outsiders don’t fit in any tribe,
We may drift with hippies for a while engulfed in one love vibe.

Now we don’t mind being engulfed… in the one love vibration
But if it gets judgmental… well we’ll soon run out of patience.

Me and my like-minded outsiders don’t fit in any one scene,
But blend in til you see we’re not sheep on the team.

Now we don’t mind you taking drugs, mix and snort until you cry,
But we may eject from your scene… when one too many die.

An outsiders community might sound like loads of fun.
But we tend too share our stuff on stage, or private one to one.

An outsiders community is kinda not allowed.
Cos most of us just pretend not to feel anxious in a crowd…

An outsiders community will be safe and be fun.
We’ll play ukeleles by ourselves and share poems one on one.

An outsiders community is the future without doubt.

Cos just ask around – you’ll find most people feel weird in a crowd…

POP – People Over Profits

Old Skool Priorities (people over profits)

I used to tell my parents things like “I never chose to be born
on a planet cursed with pollution on the brink of a nuclear war”.
I used to pray to God and wonder if he heard me,
if I read Buddhas “existence is suffering” a little too early.
Now I know if I chose to be here now like Ram Dass then it’s likely
that I was a warrior, knowing very well that I might be
burdened with priorities at odds with mainstream society.
Didn’t have many friends as a kid, who cares if facebook says you like me?
But give thanks for those that love me, that are like me, and share my priorities;
that people are more important than profits. Or please,
that affection is more important than sexing or sex.
That’s just my data, we’ll all die so lets not live with regrets.

People over profits. Affection over sex.

Still making profit, making love and living life without regrets.

People over profits. Affection over sex.

That;s just my data, let’s not regrets.

(But if you choose it, it’s pop music.

Popular music if you’re brave enough to choose it.

But if you choose it. it’s pop music.

My data’s People Over Profit. P-O-P that’s pop music.)

I was a weirdo before Joey Badass and Ab-Soul made Chakras and third eyes trendy
When people said all that ‘spiritual’ hippy-hop would end me.
Before chakras and third eyes and spirit science was trending,
I was mind bending before Kendrick spoke to dead rappers on his albums ending.

Difference is now Kendrick Lamar, Joey and Ab-Soul are all rich.
I can only blame myself, not just cos my Hip-Hop’s real or British.
My videos weren’t HD, my tracks weren’t mastered, it’s
true, it’s not cos I was spiritual but I was no perfectionist.
So learn to dodge these fakes, and learn from all these snakes,
and don’t let my time be wasted here – please learn from my mistakes.
Mistakes? Oops, my mistake, mistakes don’t exist.
I’m always where I’m meant to be, even in pubs getting pissed.
And the ‘spiritual’ may judge you, but judging ain’t too spiritual.
I remember when I was so tee total sober and thinking I was too cool.
I was a weirdo before Joey Badass and Ab-Soul made Chakras and third eyes trendy
When people said all that ‘spiritual’ hippy-hop would end me.
Before chakras and third eyes and spirit science became mainstream rappers themes,
Before Kendrick told interviewers he spoke to dead rappers in his dreams…

People over profits. Affection over sex.

Still making profit, making love and living life without regrets.

People over profits. Affection over sex.

That’s just my data, let’s not live with regrets.

Blossoming Branches (Prophecy Part 2)

Blossoming branches got em enchanted walking uncharted waters on Mars kids.

These are not the only trees that we planted in the seasons of Harvest… “I menstruate Gold… it makes the soil fertile”

were nearly planet Earths last words, but we let her bleed on the pastures… You should have seen her smile.

But do words carry less weight off the dead weight of paper made from her wild.. trees if they’re just in my phone or Microsoft word file?

Rocking a black Scully, Mulder reopen X-Files at nerd file, and store my words I know for the future they’re worthwhile.

Short moments of relaxation whatever’s testing patience in mayhem – I’m surrounded by serenity like group meditations. .

You think Anarchy means mayhem, carnage, and riots? No. It just means without rulers. We could live in the flow.

Do we need to reclaim these words for their true meaning? Has it already gone too far, am I only dreaming?

You think feminist means ‘man hater?’ Do me a favour, Have you got to see apparently a true feminist just wants equality.

Do we need to reclaim these words for their true meaning? Has it already gone too far, am I only dreaming?

But if I try to define words I find my own hypocrisy cos there’s no independent nature to an ideology.

Just grey areas, grey but no shade, just blurred lines but no Robin Thick, no low grade.

I used to just want to inspire people, I cared for no wage. I still want to inspire but now expect to get so paid.

Pause… “hey why did you just put the pause on?” are you ready for a reality check of an epic proportion?

Okay then, “normalisation of an intense vibration” …please proceed with caution.

I once believed we were part of prophecies of ‘Shambhala Warriors’ and of ‘Rainbow Warriors’ destined to save the world with people of all colours.

Sometimes I still believe that. But truth is I used to need that Now I see that was just a story I indulged in to replace stories I was avoiding,

cos the stories that we’re born in sin, or born for no reason, or born just to make money were stories I was more than annoyed in.

But a story of prophecy was an inspiring one of more glory but I’m more likely to fulfill prophecy if i let go of stories paradoxically.

But now I know I am an open-ended benefit creator my destiny aint changed but it ain’t ever been greater

and my destiny is Heaven sent, in the illusion of time my past and present is just like my future, power-born open-ended benefit.

For the benefit of all. Not restricted by context or pretext it is Open ended benefit for the benefit of all is where I’m ending it.

So I may as well just rest with it. Truly there’s nothing else I can do but thank the trainers and community I found through Balanced View.

[Exaltation Addendum]

To be true you see I mainly owe that to the Balanced View team training and community which may be the best tool to see

 ourselves as power born, beneficial beings and stop it being victims or villains we’re seeing

there’s no independent nature, so called villains are there for the benefit… and we’re all one with them.

History of a Real MC (raps about poetry and poems about rapping part 2)

History of a Real MC

(raps about poetry and poems about rapping part 2)

Before Kate Tempest was big… We used to jam with Planetman at the end of his gig That was festival season 2007, full Of good memories, I couldn’t be resentful The first open mic I did… With Yungun aka Essa, at a night hosted by Taskforce, why would I fib. With Ricochet of universal soldiers, My Edmonton rhyme mentor with bare shotters on his shoulders, The mic was scaleded, the mans dem applauded, Highbury estate Bury crew and mudfam. Not recorded. I was only 16, a little bit lean, Before canibus and eminem had battle Mcs spitting mean. Early days but some of my so called biggest gigs Were early days at a time in-between. My bredrin Sparxillva I met at university The cue ball and 8 ball, he would trade a verse with me, Jungle or DnB but we loved hip-hop, our Holy Communion We supported some of the biggest names in our students union We opened for Adam F. Altern8, LTJ Bukem. I skinned up for Ian Brown, we kept the dancefloor cookin. Years later I’m jamming with Dub FX and Mr Woodnote, did they meet in the magpie? Yeah, I should know. Who helped convince Dub to move to Bristol? Yeah, KP n Craig did. Dub FX has a great affirmation. “I’ve already made it.” Years later im in Stokescroft basements in Bristol cafes, Knowing I’ll look back and say they weren’t bad days. Chatting to Sonny Green, glad I had patience, Glad to have faith in… The next generation, Indigo children, crystal children, those are just new boxes to get out of but I feel them, They walk in their own shoes when they fill them, And have wisdom beyond age, time and space, and reveal them. remind me best days are not behind me cos you’ll find me At best raves in conversation with the next generation. I could have more fame n I used to feel so resentful The universe says “lack of mainstream success is heaven-sent, fool! Communities you respect the values of respect you, Musicians, and activists, rappers, poets too. The free-party people, healers, the festival crew, But most important is that you respect, love and accept YOU.” I started performing when I was 16, and kept my sword sharp, But started writing aged 11. Depressed in the dark. I’m still not where my HEAD WANTS to be, so I’m sensitive bout my art. But im always where I’m meant to be, and this I know in my heart.

If you’ve helped me on my path and I never thanked you, I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me… And thank you.

If we left a broken planet cos we rolled with gas tanks full. I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me and thank you.

Thanks for the big ups, more love, MORE FIRE! more wealth, Because I’m fully loving and accepting myself.

To everyone I know, all love and respect due. Remember to respect, to love and accept you.
