"Rock-A-Bye" is East Oakland emcee Shady Blaze's first offering of the new year, soundtracked by emerging San Francisco producer DEEPTHAWTS.
Shady currently releases material through Main Attraktionz' Green Ova Records imprint, and those still sleeping on him are advised to wake up ASAP.
"They want my soul and my mind and me deceased / What's a nigga in a world full of chaos lookin' for peace? / Ain't no heroes anymore, kids can't even turn to police / Predators lurkin' around, huntin' the streets / Pick up my seed, get a hit of weed - sometimes I feel like this is it for me."
"To be honest, I don't even know what selfish is / That's right, I gave my daughter life, and now I've gotta help her live / Rappers rap for what? Just to say some clever shit? / Some catchy lines? Get all competitive, it's repetitive."
