About my Blog son

Okay, so I'm no professional blogger but, i think I'm pretty freaking interesting, sike. But for real I find cool shit on the interweb everyday now i can have it all in one place, right alongside the randomness that is my life... Be forewarned there will be an excessive amount of profanity at times, that's just how I feel



My second favorite Track from George Watsky's Guilty Pleasures after Midnight Hour has to be Hercules... On GP he puts this joint over the Flashing Lights beat, by and large the best use of that track since Kanye did it.

I know I’m just as strong as Hercules
Because it’s wired in my circuitry
And if I’m just as strong as Hercules
You’ll see I’m just as strong as Hercules
Verse 1
In 1638 they came from Sweden,
Ship shape settlers late looking for Eden,
the Delaware tribe wasn’t really keen on leaving
so they “bought em out” or slaughtered them quick and got to breeding
1659 they built a fortress
stationed soldiers, and gave them horses
but now their forces were losing their resources
moving in the living quick as moving out the corpses
started changing courses, when we got the Quakers
and they been running town since Cromwell met his maker
they didn’t take pay cut, Quakers got their cake up
the paper came triangulating, trading with Jamaica
Now in the 1700s they took care of biz
built the families through some noble marriages
Still in WIlmington, doing what their parents did
living up on 7th street in Mansions they inherited
1800 and in step the du Ponts
Irenee du Pont was fleeing the war in France
he made the jaunt cause apparently murder rate
was higher for gentle people spitting on the third estate
He started working late, he had grand design
And when we cut a couple fingers off the hands of time
The Du Ponts were running under Delaware like panty lines
they built a mill for small explosives on the Brandywine
But gun powder’s just as temperamental
as the rich kids with CEO potential
It’s essential to compete for our emergencies
Which brings me to a company called Hercules
I hope I’m just as strong as Hercules
I hope I’m just as strong as Hercules
But when it comes to stacking currencies
I’d like to be as strong as Hercules
Verse 2
Hercules Gunpowder started kind of small
Du Pont had it all, were sparkling wall to wall
They were ballin in the fall of 1899
when T.C. Dupont crawled up the Brandywine
Now Thomas Coleman, started as a coal man
In the mines in Kentucky with his old man
joined whole fam, and flipping the strip tease
Went from fig leaves all the way to big cheese
Never got on his knees for the love it won him
from couple of brothers, Lewis and Russell Dunham
They were running shit with Coleman’s muscle
Lewis wasn’t clueless
But Russell’s on his hustle
Now brother Lou, was Coleman’s true blue man
T.C. would Idea and Lou drew plans
Dupont had seventy percent of GDP
When it came to gun powder and TNT
they bought even bought Hercules
said the government, so brought on anti-trust
litigation, and they split business up in three
Into Atlas and Dupont, and Hercules
But certainly they were busting heads
put in work at Hercules, then made Russell prez
in 1912 up the road from Dover
my great great grandfather Russ took over
I know I’m just just as strong as Hercules
I know I’m just just as strong as Hercules
Because It’s written in my history
I know I’m just as strong as Hercules
Verse 3
Russell Dunham, we said Daddy D
Or sugar Daddy D to half the family
Ran Hercules as an affable property
slap on the wrist from capitalist democracy
And so between TC and Papa D
A bit improperly they adopt a monopoly
And instead of dotting the i’s and often crossing the T’s
they take a walk in the trees, and talk and pocket the cheese
And when Russell dropped to his knees, his heirs cashed out
every generation after the shares passed down
(So where’s that now?) Split between six ladies
and my mother had the stocks till the 1980’s
(If Stonewall pays my phone calls
If San Juan fills my scantron
If every molten shower out in Okinawa fueled by smoking powder
pays my broken power send my folks the flowers)
if it’s irrelevant to my intelligence
gimme a shotgun, I’m dropping these pink elephants
I’ll take a tranquilizer shot and sell the sedatives
out in delaware well aware the fella lives
(And what if Iwo Jima)
all the skeletons in my closet are dead relatives
(And if the Fall of Saigon)
And then I grow up to be another screw up
(And if the Tet Offensive)
But if I blow up
it’ll be cause they blew up
My mother loves me more than Hercules
My parents work harder than Hercules
But if I think of this as burglary
I know I’m stronger cause of Hercules
