    then he pressed the emergency stop button because he missed his station

    he got off at west ham like us and got on another train going the other way

    to this day i wonder what happened to that poor drunken man

    put me right on edge

    luckily after that i drank myself into a state of glorious abandon and cooly g played

    Dancehall definitely an influence on nurap but also memphis rap circa 1995 and gregorian chant circa 9th-10th century CE

    the whole point of you young people is you have to explain this stuff to us so we feel in touch. can you play your part please and we can tell you stories about going to a garage rave in 1998 or something.

    it's a village and we all learn from each other. the elders dispense wisdom and life learning and stories about that one time they went to a garage rave and in turn we leech off young persons life energy. everyone has a part to play. ta.
