The Mortal Coil Produced By & Cuts By Fifth Seal

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.

We preserve whats left of a dying breed
Its a Hip Hop jungle where the lions feed
We the sickest in the biz there's a finder's fee
Survival of the fittest we the fittest you seen

Shackled to the plight of our physical form
Its the Farmer in the field who works the soil
Doomed to a life from the day that you're born
So hot in the sun till your blood'll boil
Eternal fight against nature's storm
The won't quit yeah the grand is royal
The fabric of space and time is torn
Mortal man seeks a plan to release the coil

It's the Grand Architect yeah you know the name
Some try to claim but they sounding lame
When I weight in hundred pounds and change
So sick of kids running round the game
Don't have to say it it comes with the title
Tidal wave when I slay these rivals
Cypher rage a page from the bible
Type to blaze couple jays life cycle

Its the tower of babel that men try to climb
Down to the final hour ten then the nine
Change in the season the wind in the chimes
Give me a reason to keep up on rhymes
Take apart your life with a piece of your brain
Start an new heart then give it a name
Its the beautiful tracks like art on a train
The human syntax grand arch is the name
With the tools that I have Ima do it myself
Exclusive to you my music on shelves
I do this for you abusing my health
Whats a body to me its used to this hell
Before the trap Ima get my packs right
Before I collapse and the casket tight
Seems the dose only lasts half the life
But my soul live on in the afterlife
