Meet me inside the wire fire light the vision that you know In the middle of the night, you find your way now In the middle of the fight, you find your way out Meet me inside the wire fire shine the light upon your flow In the middle of the night, you find your way now In the middle of the fight, you find your way out Boom! We put the music in the ground and bury deep so no one else will know Boom! Peel back concrete on the sidewalk Pitter-patter footprint of your side-talk Ear to the ground of my body rock Rock rock rock steady Are you ready We the risk-takers for the fakers Ready for the money-makers and the movers and the shakers Lick shots pon di haters We’re creators and the makers of everything That you wish you were We all gettin’ laid like it’s Caddyshack But AIDS in the mix so check your facts And you say that it’s love but it will not last In this world, stay alert and watch your ass Break it down in a minute then laugh last And pass it on down the line make that cash People ask me if I got a job I laugh But I cam from nowhere so I had to ask Many different ways to get the same place We all do our thing at just our own pace Travel on my own time fuck a rice And yeah a life of competition is such a waste Yeah yeah mind erase A life of competition is such a waste Never been a competition Never been a race Debate fate really why the fate they wait Happenstance took a chance in the middle Destro took a toll when it made the crowd giggle To the riddle of the sphinx big up to the Pharaoh Sanders got you dusted in fro and cornrow oh Yeah, we go 365 In the middle of the jungle try to stay alive Yeah, and I got to just strive Balance on the telephone wire up high Hit me on the one time with your one hand out Boom up di system Yuh twist and shout Yeah yeah twist and shout It’s Evolve and Abiyah, workin’ it out Thinkin’ that you better not be absurd I move to my own rhythm not with the herd You can't hear a word In 2015 we fly like a bird Emcees bringing back the power of the word Fuck what ya heard Boom! Meet me inside the wire fire light the vision that you know In the middle of the night, you find your way now In the middle of the fight, you find your way out Meet me inside the wire fire shine the light upon your flow In the middle of the night, you find your way now In the middle of the fight, you find your way out Boom!

about

The first collaborative effort by two of Cincinnati's alternative hip hop pioneers, Abiyah + Evolve, 'Boom' inspires overcoming obstacles through self-motivation and self-improvement...with a unique and melodic fury.

Offered here on high-quality chrome cassingle (cassette single) in two versions, one produced by Oakland-based DJ HALO (with post-production rhythm cuts by DJ Rare Groove), the other produced by St. Petersburg, Russia-based Possible Address, with additional production by Evolve. While containing futuristic elements that are decidedly not reminiscent of the 90s-golden-era vibe, the 'Boom' cassingle does hearken to the days when the B-side housed instrumental versions for the people; featured on Side B are slightly-tweaked instrumental versions of the Side A full versions.

'Boom' crosses over into DIY, alternative hip hop and avant-garde/experimental audiences, while still maintaining a sensibility that transcends classification and can work just as well as a club banger (Side A2) as it would as a backdrop to a backyard house party (Side A1).
