Real Reason Produced By DJ Nightfloor Featuring Shana Hartfield

from by The Grand Architect



Humans have throughout time exerted themselves to have release from the physical form and ascend into a higher state of existence, yet now the common goal of society seems entirely satisfied with accepting your chains that bind us to the creation and blind us to the creator. We now look towards the future in hope of answers that bring us closer to find out what life is truly about.

The Grand Architect, has embarked on a quest to relay powerful messages through rhyme. The struggles of the everyday tend to avert our attention on the relevance of why we are really here. Aptly titled "The Mortal Coil" this debut solo album will explore Grand Architect's idea of transience, life purpose, destiny etc. The title track "The Mortal" produced by 5th Seal of the Beat Bandits sets the tone for the album's agenda. Tracks like "The Real Reason" produced by DJ Nightfloor keeps the deep conscious theme rolling. Even for as serious as the subject matter is, Grand Architect manages to slip in some comical material with "Stop Clowning Around" produced by Vherbal of Enemy Soil and Anno Domini Nation. This is a culmination of works that's actually showcases one different producer for the 14 track listing which provides a variety of sounds to match up against Grand Architect's deliberate style.

Well known for features ranging from international to national to local, Grand Architect take the proper steps to solidify his standing in the Hip Hop platform as an established solo artist. Already working with Cook Book Records counterpart Illastr8ed for another group 'Double Helix' album and a collaborative project with international French connection 'Alalmy'. Look for "The Mortal Coil" in an exclusive outlet market thanks to Darkstarz Records and the Brain Kave Music Group, physical and digital merchandise to hit shelves for an autumn release.

Its too much to bear its a heavy cross
These kids walk around with their mini glocks
Don't use their noodle end up spaghetti sauce
All over white tees from the semi shots
Have to walk a thin line its a tight rope
Every time I cut the life line from a life boat
Everyone wanna shine they got high hopes
But they choose a life of crime and they buy dope
Suicide seems like the easy way out
But so many grieve when you take that route
Bombs taking out the youth so quick
Shootouts in the schools its just so sick
Nothing is worth all the lives that are missed
Go somewhere else when you feeling that pissed
Evil deeds get you closer to hell
So don't feed off the anger they're trying to sell

I'm asking what's the real reason
People so cold so damn freezing
They weak in the week looking for the weekends
Tell me what you really seeking

I'm done when it comes to games
Fools in the midst try and lock their chains
I won't even grace your face with names
No wonder when I make moves they can't complain
No wonder they so jelly I'm doing so well
They staying in the hotels or the cold cells
Tuxedo flow ride the coattails
I'm blowing o rings while you hoping your show sells
I've seen lots of lows but mostly highs
Try and rain on my parade like most these guys
Wanna make slaves that's no surprise
Hell no not G I'm the poltergeist
No disrespect how you get your checks
Cause you get what yours I'm a get what tect's
Been there before now I'm on what's next
Besides I think the people want what's fresh
