    Just some old flows I've had for years that I'll never put to work so I figured I might as well post em here. It's the most work their gonna see..

    All unfinished and all have something to do with what was going on at the time, back when i was a little more wreckless then I am now, or am trying to be, so here's a peep into my average foundation

    whats my life like? lemme tell you it aint right
    settle the score in two ways, either mic or a knife fight
    get you lit up quicker than a night light livin the night life
    the white hype, strappin up cause its fight night
    livin in the trenchs, snatch your girl and your necklace
    claim you a player but only sit the benches
    shit is hectic... i dont even got time to stress it
    hit you so hard all you kids ell be born dyslexic
    im wreckless, an used to be like fuck it
    smokin weed an poppin e's used to be like nothin
    so i started sellin the shit to make a little somethin
    an now these other motherfuckers are actin like im frontin
    you want the bread? then go out and earn your dough
    no matter how many times i said it they never heard it tho
    so you want in for what? a girl to hold in a convertable
    remember the first ones to step up are the first to choke
    don't waste your time fixin shit that aint broke so...
    like az hopin those open an close cases never re-open
    an even tho i got away clean hope the last case starts closin

    ***********************************************************

    the illest to do this
    and ill stand up to prove it
    a genius on the mic take the beat and go to school with it
    a flow like fluid kid others askin who is this?
    im far from new to this, get off the stupid shit
    think you got me figured out, the kid with a vicous mouth
    that spit so hot, my tounge could dry a fuckin river out
    one to switch it up when i hit em up in they ribs an guts
    even with your chin tucked you wont be wakin up
    keep you foldin like sheets just to make my ends meet
    thats the way its gotta be, risky like armed robbery
    fuck comradery always doin it for self
    mistook your cd for a book the way it sits on the shelf
    im bad faya health so fuck it its them or us
    never been more carefull about who i can trust
    lifes a gamble, its a given, takin chances a must
    to realise how big this bet-tis like a head up with the bus
    im troublesome who chew through emcees like bubblegum
    an treat you like seatbelt the way ill make you buckle up
    had enough? cause this is just the beginnin
    grab the mic cord and leave you all hung like linen
    now who's winnin? never sat around for clowns
    an ive made gravity jelouse by the way i put it down
    what now? nah still not ready to stop
    now listen real close for when the beat drop
    emotions through music an i know how to use it
    i mistreat the beat when i speak like car keys the way i lose it

    ***********************************************************

    this was just a story about a heist, it was about going to new york and switching plates from two of the same cars, so when one person reported theirs stolen, the cops would trace it to another persons with the stolen liscense plate that they didnt know got put on their car, while i drive the "legit" one back to ct, so I could pull off another heist with an untracable car for the time being in ct.

    i got to new haven left my gloves on the pavement,
    pulled my hat low made my way inside the station,
    hearts racin, hate doin dirt in public places
    hoody up head down, no cop could ever trace this,
    left the car behind so no bashead could miss it,
    walked up to the booth an got a one way ticket,
    waitin for the next ride down to ny,
    with two things on me an a plate on my side,
    got on the metro an made sure to sit in the back,
    triple checked my pockets an the shit in my back pack,
    left the stolen whip on the block with the keys in it,
    doors open still runnin, gone in like a minute,
    yea first step finished now its onto the next,
    with little while left i took a quick rest,
    breathin easy just to ease the stress,
    held my necklace an kissed the cross that rest on my chest,
    put my head down closed my eyes got my shit together,
    thought to myself soon imma pass this bad weather,
    make it better whatever it takes to see brighter days,
    got off grand central an its onto the subways,
    made my way uptown, stopped real quick to eat,
    five minutes later, i was back on my feet
    back in the street, an packin my heat,
    just incase i have to cook some of that beef,
    i need a fast whip somethin i can crash with,
    i seen a benz vision, with 2 on the dash kid,
    thats it, took the door cracked it, jacked it
    took about a minute to put to work what i practiced,
    fact is? forget about a chase no cop can match this,
    drove a couple blocks got out an switched the plates,
    by the time the cops catch on ill be outta the state,
    if anything theyll be out chasin the wrong car

    ***********************************************************

    Somethin I wrote for my boys voicemail, when we got bored we used to sit around and write something up real quick an call the other one up an if they didn't answer we'd leave a verse on the message...

    This was the second one, I can't find the others...

    a second sumbission outta the blue without your permission
    its the second edition so listin while im kickin
    a lil rhyme that i wrote in no time
    the flows fine while the lines so defined
    i wanna be rollin dice in sicily
    love is love wether you get none or you dissin me
    its like a mystery how the flows flow you kiddin me?
    i dont even really write its a given gift you was missin me
    well im back... so grab a bat or cock a gat
    robbin trains banks armored cars all of that
    as a matter of fact i never left young buck
    it was just a break so you had time to get your weight up
    watch how i switch it up my crews pitbulls
    yours? sittin ducks your fam wont miss you
    so grab the tissues ill leave you spittin up ribs an stuff
    cause its just that official now imma pick it up

    so count with me

    the flow is dispicable along with twice as nice
    cause me without a mic is like miami without vice
    chinese people without rice, religeon without christ
    dark without light an summer days without nights
    houses without mice, suits without ties
    cops without nines our courts without lies
    husbands without wives, shit without flies
    a watch witout time or boxin without fights
    in reality theres nothin you can do to stop us
    thats what happens when you clashin with mobsters
    ask hoffa... the detects? got nadda
    catch me in nevada while your swimmin with lobsters

    the same ones i got chillin in butter on my plate
    while j-mills chicks orderin him another steak
    so make no mistakes cause your fake with a given fate
    and i hate to have to make your mom order another wake
    so get your shit sorted out stretch out your mouths
    cause the flow is nasty an goes well past 12 rounds
    an dont even bother me with any that petty beefin shit
    keep our names outta your mouth while you already eatin dick
    shoot you in the calf so you wont have a leg to stand on
    tellin me to relax man... when i am calm
    an dont come back with no rhymes no lines no response
    don't get mad at me cause somebody stole your box of tampons
    i use the chrome the same way i use a comb
    to push back the wig on the top of your dome

    a jigga induced flow so you can watch ya dame follow
    stack chips to get rich, use paychecks to flip bricks
    wether illegal or legit, homey just stack that shit
    i wanna have money like vegas got chips
    have trump sayin "damn wish i could afford that shit"
    im out for the ice and cream i got diamond dreams
    cause a little of my knowledge is a dangerous thing
    the things i plan on acheivin aint nothin easy
    an you only live one life so please believe me
    you want a track master? then read the cd
    yall cant see me if i was stuck on the tv

    jadakiss

    i only sit on rims that are 20 an above
    cause they so old they could get drunk in a club

    canibus

    ill battle you with a broken neck after a car wreck
    an get upset cause you havent left yet
    what you expect switchin my flows on ya cassete deck
    and creep through the wires just to snuff you through the headset
    you can find me on the net earasin the traces of your past occupations
    so social care an welfare applications result in disqualifications
    you ride the bus im gettin around through modern day communications
    while you at your boys house playin the fuckin playstation
    im so veristile every rhymes worth your while
    cause i spit so serious that it hurts to smile
    i got more styles then there are inchs along the nile


    nature

    alotta people think they got somethin to say
    i shrug it off as childs play before i tuck it away
    learned not to speak my mind at a young age

    from day one ive been out to better myself

    an keep thinks hot like rockin a sweater june
    this is why im better than you im on my way to bein a veteran soon
    few make it this far guns a filled to kill
    spill yours guts an you can get your guts spilled
    its the way shit happens i dont plan on makin it rappin
    im more realistic than that

    cormega

    act like you the hardest cause me an marksman
    we dont have enemys we got friends and targets
    used to stack dough on the streets but now im straight
    to see any of my money you gon have to rob a bank
    an that shit is insured so you aint hurtin me
    aN i dont have to pull the trigger thats left to security
    im white so i moved on to legal hustles
    while you runnin around gettin stuck cause you got see through muscles
    im much smarter then you an yea once i got stuck up
    i done came up hustlin weed an es while you was stuck on the same stuff
    all that did was make me step my game up

    ***********************************************************

    this is some shit when i was tryin to stop sellin an shit, alotta people wanted to get at me cause I was makin alotta money at the time, I'm white an that didn't help, but anyways without going into specific events, heres this... its all jumbled, never got put together

    i did this with no equipment no studio an no nothin
    but ive overcome it, rose above it, with somethin to show from it
    an no matter where you walk someone will judge it (yup)
    smarten up an you can get shit done without a budget (so fuck it)
    its like i never even wrote these rhymes (nope)
    i just closed my eyes and then i traced the lines
    fuck plottin crimes an facin time my goal is to get up
    an give my boys a real reason for once to keep they heads up
    never let up, always smile even if your on your way down
    if there was 1 person breathin down your neck theres 8 now

    damn, thats when i put both of these hands to work
    thats when i started thinkin so hard godman it hurt
    about how am i gonna get up outta my current situations
    my third felony im facin fuck i still got open cases
    an im not even stressin this shit your missin the message kid
    a humble man

    turnin water to wine
    through the steps ive walked im not lyin
    ive overcame odds a veteran gambler shakes his head at

    to change my fate to a humble man from an enemy of the state

    thats cool with me its not even an issue son
    go outta your way to pop shit and thats when your tissue runs
    that red river life but tonight its the color of death
    so weak if your head was underwater you wouldnt have the strength hold your breath
    a beat like this could humble the hardest man

    if some asked me whats my life like? id tell em you wouldnt want to live it
    so when it almost got took believe me i wouldnt have missed it

    do you know what its like when everyone wants to get at you?

    ***********************************************************

    This one was about my mindstate at a particular time in life, around 16-17. I got the last part which was added not too long ago from someones quote on here, i forget whose it was...

    through highschool played the lowkey role
    try to stay on my toes to hit em with the okey doke
    used to blow weed smoke an started my affiliations
    when a philly was the only blunt but now a phillys nathan
    i feel hes fakin, im waitin for him to fuck up
    ill get him smashed in the back of a company dumptruck
    musta been dumb luck, im waitin to catch this dude slippin
    when im the one tryin to step on people but comin up missin,
    whats my position? stand firm or bust guns like sperm?
    cause one of us aint leavin until the barrel on this gun burn
    im unconcerned, about the outcome of this situation
    but in the end it was a fuckin felony id be facin
    i fell hard for that shit once tho, but never again

    A girl calls and asks, "Does it hurt very much to die?"
    i told her "yes, if pain is the essence of death"
    the feeling of death is an ox... sliding across your neck,
    the feeling of a slug, burnin the flesh, inside of your chest,
    the feeling of a knife, slippin inside of your breast,
    how sweet the air is when your tastin your last breath.


    I got more shit but these are just the ones I'm not doing anything with at the moment, their a few years old...

    "an dont even bother me with any that petty beefin shit
    keep our names outta your mouth while you already eatin dick"

    Your speaking what you think and not what you know...

    I didn't start this thread to showcase your ignorance, it's more for people like me to relate, an to get some shit seen that would not have been otherwise

    Go be an internet thug somewhere else, I'm unconcerned about you or you opinion, I'm suprised you actually took your head out of your fuckin ass long enough to speak up tho... movin on up...

    It's funny how Marlboro Red criticizes iCEBERG for writing about things that are sketchy and most likely didn't happen.

    Well for one thing, I seriously doubt Marlboro is from NYC.
    If he is, chances are he's some pussy kid that's afraid to leave his house, and thus has plenty of time to go on his computer all day to talk shit to people.

    Don't worry... I notice my hypocrasy, but hey, he was the asshole first.

    At least iCEBERG shows a little talent and creativity, and the unadulterated BALLS to show it to an online community.
    He has won my respect.. I like the shit he wrote.

    As for Marlboro, hold your fuckin tounge.
    You've made yourself a target.

    Ha, I do agree quite well with the one named [email protected]@n.

    Constructive criticism is one thing, but being rude and quite frankly, ignorant, for no plain reason is absolutely ridiculous. Marlboro Man, you show absolutely no intelligience by acting in such a manner.

    Grow the fuck up!

    Nah i just did it kinda like... if you listen to someone you get a feel for how they carry themselves you know what i mean?

    An I was just givin myself a break, kinda like breakin away from my usual flow to like... stylize... a verse after whoever. I didnt finish that jada one, that was the last verse i was gonna do but never got around to finishing it.

    Anyways I'm takin off for the day, if I can dig up more shit somewhere I'll post it. Gimme a few months an we'll have demos an everything, we'll not even demos full cd's cause we're not lookin for a record deal, I don't even really write, we're gonna do everything ourselves from promotion to distribution etc...

    We've all been around and have got shit to show for it along with things to add, I don't even really write, maybe like once a month if that an most of those were over specific beats, they carry real well over the beats you can't pick up on it through just text, your missin out on the delivery etc...

    But anyways yea me an my boy are pullin our shit together to help out the rest of our boys. You probably won't here me on any of the shit, maybe a verse here or there, I'm more of a behind the scenes dude, I'm not as interested as making my own cd as I am putting out and marketing their shit but yea, in a little bit, if I'm still around I'll drop the website or whatever for you to check everyone out at...

    another one I found that I wrote when I was recoverin from an accident and got to sit back for awhile and see everyday things from a different perspective, kinda like watching certian shit that happened to you on a t.v.

    never finished it, never cleaned it up etc... like a rough draft

    the way things been goin got me thinkin recently/
    now i easily see when people try sneakin me/
    i cease to sleep my mind chews on problems like the weakest meat/
    i now dine on knowledge cause for me its just feast to eat/
    emotions released in beats most souls hidden beneath the feet/
    you were supposed to be close to me watch the lies retreat/
    my mind is a weapon, used at my discretion/
    an its almost at perfection while my wisdoms manifestin/
    listen to this lesson, i teach like no other/
    when it comes down to it i am my only brother/
    ya see the things ive seen an people that ive talked to/
    why explain youll only go around what ive already walked through/
    think about it...

    okay now lets say we take all emotion away/
    that would be like having no sun in the middle of the day/
    are you catchin on yet? am i over your head?/
    the saddest part of all this is your mentally dead/
    so instead im gonna try a different approach/
    think of me not as your friend but more like a coach/
    showin you the ropes clarity wisdom and propserity/
    while chances are your probably not even try to hear me/
    how to open your mind, heal your own wounds/
    ive done it a thousand times and now i see the truth/
    its the best of weed, purest form of ecstacy/
    got you thinkin all this just by standin next to me/
    ...

    i see through guys by lookin through eyes/
    to eventually aviod the whole concept that of which is true lies/
    so now lets say the average person wasnt allowed to think/
    true everyone has thoughts but they arent the same thing/
    your influenced for one reason or another, your manipulated/
    seein life through thoughts subject to outside stimulation/
    see writins kinda like a therapy serious or even parody/
    it makes truth shine through an reality now appears to me/
    i now realize the truth when i see real lies/
    while most are speakin on life they've seen through sealed eyes/
    i think much harder smarter an deeper than you/
    but still get caught up in shit just like a sneaker do/

    IT'S NOT MY FAULT THAT iCEHERB TRIED TO WRITE SOME HALF-ASS LAUGHABLE BOOTLEG BULLSHIT FANTASY BARS ABOUT SHIT HE NEVER DID, AND IT'S EVEN MORE NOT MY FAULT THAT HE DECIDED TO PLAY HIMSELF BY PUTTING THEM ONLINE SO PEOPLE LIKE ME COULD TAUNT HIM WITH HIS OWN INSECURITIES...

    I almost tried defending myself to you earlier, but then I realized how much of a joke you are, an how noone takes you seriously, even over the internet, so I didn't...
