heres the lyrics

 

It was the last days of summer, sun shinin' thrue the window

Life movin' real slow, you know how things go

His friends knew him by the name of Bingo

as he turned up the volume on a hot new single

from Looptroop his favourite rapgroup

He love how they represented him yo, the graffyouth

from the grassroots. He came from Sweden too

felt proud when he played his new friends the latest tunes

(Check this shit out man!) That he had to download

Cus his local record store was on the other side of the globe

They didn't carry the stuff, but he felt it was ok to do

He spread the Troop's message all the way to Australia, dude

and man that couldn't be wrong

when Long Arm and Freedom Fighters were his fuckin' theme songs

in the headphones those nights he spent when he stayed up

Adrenaline Rush, when he entered the lay up, singin...

 

[Chorus]

You know graffiti won't die

Because these walls don't lie

I'm dedicatin' this piece

He said, to those DVSG's

 

[Verse 2]

And stepped in with a grin and a boosted Kangol

mimicking the king Rick the Ruler's manners

fresh dressed in his newest shoes and flannels

then began lettin' off with the loosest cannons

figurin' this'll be my coolest panel

but when they see it all they see is just a gruesome scandal

earasin' all signs of life, callin' the youth some vandals

They can't handle the truth so that's how the truth is handled

Deep into the music and his art man, his true love

didn't even notice when the train pulled up

and before the bloodstains faded or the engine cooled off

that very same train hit another writer: Olaf

on a different continent though: Europe

but then they came to the same place that I'm sure of

In this world people always looked upon them as a terror

but now 50 000 chariots singin' the chorus goin...

 

[chorus]

Graffiti writers won't die

Because these walls don't lie

I'm dedicatin' this song to those gone, your memory live on

 

[bridge]

I know a lot of people including myself get uncomfortable

when people including myself get emotional

but I gotta be true to myself and to most of ya'll

Man I still got love for graffiti culture though

a lot of people including myself get uncomfortable

when people including myself get emotional

but I gotta be true to myself and to most of ya'll

Man I still got love for graffiti culture though

 

[Verse 3]

a lot changed from the days of Spraycan stories

See me in the yard today, lost like a freakin' tourist

and I don't claim to know much, all I really know is

we were 17 once actin' like we were immortals

Fearin' no evil, people said we have no morals

That's fine, their corrupt world it really wasn't for us

We just laughed at the bullshit names that they called us

hated us, we hated them and both sides found out what a war is

we were winning in the beginning then found out 'bout the horrors

Don't get me wrong my love a hundred percent, no less

and peace to my people, we grow with the knowledge

I bite Tone Def same time I'm payin' homage

to cats from South Africa, writers from New York

Australia, Spain, France and Germany, up north

Still the same rapper tellin' cops to fuck off

and all my writers: Survive! This my love song to ya'll...:king:

 

Wherever Adam is, I know he'd be fucken stoked that Promoe/ Looptroop did that for him...

 

Massive respect to Looptroop...

 

RIP Adrock...
