about

On "Young Bobby Bushido," the second track of The Aspiring Me's new album, The Aspiring Me, he makes a prodigious claim: "Awww, shit. Y'all done let the wrong nigga make a fuckin' album." In and of itself, his assertion is trite and, within the context of rap music, almost definitely a cliché. But none of the singular parts of The Aspiring Me are meant to be processed "in and of themselves." Within that particular moment, The Aspiring Me simultaneously flexes the gangster traditions that guide his protons (his late father was Big Mello, an undeniable rap force that shifted southern rap's zeitgeist with his 1992 tape, Bone Hard Zaggin) over a brooding, cosmic soundscape that surmises his own forward thinking progressivism. Beyond that, the track acts as a segue between the spastic opening "Fast Livin'" and the ticky third track, "No Worries." The entire project plays out in a similarly esoteric manner, always more involved and intelligent than it would have you believe. The Aspiring Me is a grand project with a grander narrative that successfully pays homage to an almost grandiose background while establishing its own identity. Aspirations achieved, for certain.

- Shea Serrano

"so what's up? this is first. originally produced by myself with contributing work from my brothers Charles Moon and Christian Scull of 'family here eternally'. a complete in house debut album. work ranging from 2009-2012. I went through a lot of that "searching for myself" stuff; not just sonically but in the growing human nature as well, which pretty much encompasses all. I have grown since then, and still am, that's just where we called that chapter an end. I guess I would like for my music to have that mirror of human life. which is most valuable."

[Verse 1: The Aspiring Me]
Awww shit
Yall done let the wrong nigga make a fuckin' album
Peep the outcome and I vouch bruh'
I'll drop this and they won't get enough
So am I ready for what's up?
The fame and stuff I let my brain adjust
I grab a swisher empty and refill it up
Then I get up and head to lunch..
Cuz' I just missed breakfast
Pushing that T bird so you know I'm protected
Surrounded by steel behind that wheel
I feel like an army veteran; in the muthafuckin' paint
Think it ain't but it is young black ghetto kids
Tryna get rich. shit bitch
If I was you I would do
Everything a muthafucka' said
Give me head, hop up in the bed,
Open the legs, and let a young nigga go fed
Code red; I'm a pro not a novice
And you'll know when you hold this
So why don't you and your friends
Come kick it with me and my niggas
We down to bowl and chill with ya'
Get a hotel and get busy
We drunk as hell but still sippin'
Hotel staff ain't even trippin'
Now I ain't show (sure) but I'm thinkin'
This life of mine that I'm livin' is pimpin'
Bitch I'm

[Hook: The Aspiring Me]
Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole
Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole
Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole
Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole

[Verse 2: The Aspiring Me]
Rolled up, showed up
Set this bitch on fire like a blowtorch
Rock the fucking crowd gave em Mozart; that's art
What you niggas thought, I'm playing?
You sitting here in amazement
I'm the one you gaze at and I ain't even famous
Yo' bitch know my name; just make sure that you tame her
She'll flee from you and run to me and I won't even bag her
Yall all lookin' lame bruh'
Just like these rappers that talk about the same stuff
"I'm tryna save hip hop" as the watch goes tick tock
They get old and as you know a young nigga get chose
So I gotta look like me everywhere I go
From head to toe I'm too throwed
I've been doing this shit since a kid was about 12yrs old
So how the fuck can you tell me I ain't fasho
Ho you know I'm cold; so
To all the new listeners gather round listen up
About to tell the tale of a young male
That was jet propelled and stayed true to himself
Yep, bitch I'm!

[Hook: The Aspiring Me]

Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole

Surprising like the needle through the peep hole
Young bobby bushido super hero to negroes
Surprising like the needle through the peep hole

[Verse 3: The Aspiring Me]
I'm too cold if you know me there's no way you love me
Plus the image that they paint of me is too disgusting
But the public, they love it, my minds gutter
Can't get enough of it wish they could reach out and touch it
But these busters don't know nothing
Just tryna break down my construction
Saw em' from a mile coming cuz' they got caught lunchin'
In trouble like you didn't call but missed that punch in
And yo co-worker snitched and said you at that function
What you gone do now? resistance is futile
Got a new style with new sounds to break me across new ground
Scream all aboard!
Just know this train starts whenever they press record
So in actuality it's like I had to run and hop on
So sit back and watch the master attack the track
With a swifter back slap than an Ike and Tina Turner scrap
I can't rap?
My words will shave a grizzly's back
I'll hold the patch maintain the tame by singing just relax
Yeah
