A Harsh Life

April 5th, 2019   admin   Uncategorized

My teammates and I lived a harsh life, our bodies are riddle with bullet holes, have razor keloids and wounds from knives. They’re bad predicament reminders, scars of attempted murder, some tatted over, I left mine in plain view because when I look at them they’re motivation to go harder every sight fuels my fire. Why couldn’t everyone have trap graff on their epidermis instead of a lot of men being placed under the surface or in a fiery furnace?

Sand box homies dropped chasing the almighty dollar, it was the same fate for the generation after, there’s war scars on sons and fathers, big brothers buried little brothers and vice versa, the root of all evil produced cloak less reapers, if he dies… He dies, the streets will get bloody for come up paper. Life has no worth to those scheming to get rich off others gain, if you’re the middle man you get removed by slug rain

The things we did had some men getting locked up while anxiously awaiting a child, during those bids their kids had a kid, they still have time so son and grandkids won’t see grandpa, who was a young hustler, on the outside for a long while. The things we did and the reactions stole my smile. We wanted to end poverty and we did, since we reached that type of success we figured why not take it further, organize to monopolize in the state of empires, it wasn’t greed, it was wishful thinking that led to mass murder.

Albert Carrasco is not only a rapper and spoken word artist, but also a motivational speaker of sorts, using his words to uplift young people faced with the same difficult life choices as he was. Growing up in the Bronx, New York, Carrasco lost his father at age 12 and within four years he was arrested, shot twice and dealing drugs. He saw so many of his friends die off and he couldn’t stand the idea of his newborn son growing up into that life, so 11 years ago Carrasco turned his life around. He began to write poetry as a release, tapping into the harsh lyrical honesty that continues to permeate his music. “I write about religion, poverty, basically anything young people are going through,” said Carrasco, who proved to be an anomaly on the spoken word circuit with his unique subject matter. “This is what I saw in my life. I’m speaking from reality, not from my imagination.” At the behest of a friend, Carrasco made his spoken word debut at the Nuyorican Poetry Club and continues to appear at open mikes throughout New York City, to rapturous response from the crowds. Carrasco’s first album, On the Wrong Path to the Riches, debuted in 2010, fusing spoken word and rap to make a new genre all his own. On it, the now-married father of three raps on 11 acapella and R&B-based tracks produced by R. Twice and Max Perez. Perez also serves as the guest vocalist on “Wake Up,” the first single from Carrasco’s new as-yet-untitled album, due out in 2012.
