Mr. J. Medeiros – “Hero As Fool”

blame it on Shake December 16, 2015

With less than a month to go before his Milk & Eggs G.A.D. album is released, Mr. J. Medeiros decides to gift fans with another leak.

After hitting us with the title-track at the end of November, the Colorado Springs native returns with “Hero As Fool”—produced by Tim Stewart, Spanky McCurdy, and Mr. J. himself.

Press play below and head to Bandcamp to pre-order G.A.D. before its January 12th release. Those that do will receive the album two weeks in advance.

Maybe if I bragged more then I would have more
Fans in an ad war men what you mad for
Damn it this track going Hamlet Act 4
One part rapper three parts actor rap lore
Blaring out a dashboard cracked like a whip
Got me tearing out their script act tore
Is this what they ask for humble right
I’m the subtle type I don’t need the caps or
To shift my command for a hashtag capture
Kim with a cam and a trash bag after
Kids want to stand where we have that trap door
Just to understand it’s a laugh track at work
Flashback mastering a half packed lounge off a DAT track
This is that tour
Blasting out a maxed set of louds see this sound is that raw

Eight hours to each town I rapped for
Some cash for the meals gas for the wheels
When you ask what is real
I’ll tell you it’s a map and a heel to the asphalt
This is that walk this is how it feels when you cross that
Deal with it all facts are most calls aint a call back
And most deals got them draw backs you know that Shady type
Lose Yourself in the crosshatch maybe it’s right to save a fall back
But all I had saved was a mic and a ball cap call that
Sacrifice lose half your life in a song that costs but a tall black coffee
And it’s all that and a small snack
Gave’em my arm and let’em maul that
Used the other to play along in a game we all call rap

I gotta be Fantastic Four/for the means to adapt
Even though you know it’s been/Ben Grim
Its still a big Thing to be active you know the radio kind
I’m elastic see the play in those rhymes
Reed/read between them catch how I stretch them
And leave the meaning with a sway in it’s spine
And I’m still guaranteed no radio time it’s obscene
I’m committed to the unseen love ensues (loving Sue) what’s love to do
When it succumbs to a word it becomes unused
Like the ones I choose I trouble to use
I try and adjust their meaning to double their use
Just another excuse to become invisible
“You see my brother it’s not sensible
You wanna be the torch for the simple who are fooling themselves
Quick to pour fuel on themselves
just to be like you cus you’re human as well.”
