about

“This is not my profession, This is me living,
This is me everyday, this is me giving,
My thoughts, my soul, over these rhythms,
This is my follow through with my decisions....”

With a different sound not instantly recognised from his previous offerings, Blee has thrown all caution to the wind, adding a new flavour mixed with his unmistakable traditional flow to jump-start all your rhythm buds....He goes from addressing the establishment in the consciously mellow ‘At Eaze’, to showing no fear in the Dancehall hyped ‘Barefoot’, unfolding his heart in the beautiful ‘Moments like these’ to causing chaos and raising eyebrows in the provocative ‘What Year is this’.

Track Name: What Year Is This
WHAT YEAR IS THIS
CHORUS 1
Hold up, what year is this?
It's the weirdest ish
Did somebody just call me a n.....?
Yeah, go figure
I thought that we were bigger
I guess the news never got delivered
It feels like I'm caught in the matrix
Why is everybody still thinking so basic
I've gotta find a way to build myself a spaceship
And navigate the galaxies and find new places

VERSE 1

Hold up, is that still cool
Is that still the way that we really wanna move
We wanna take a word that was used as a tool
For spiritual suppression and increase it's use
I know you understand that this word carries energy
No matter you try you can't get pass it's legacy
And yeah yeah I know you're gonna say it's just a word
But you need to observe what occurs when it's heard
So step from the herd and think for yourself
There's power in words so I think for your health
You need to be aware that your spirit is affected
Every time you hear this word get ejected
From the lips of your people
Ignorance is bliss but it's power is lethal
When you trying to get a little juice in this vehicle
And get everybody on a level that's equal, come on now people






CHORUS 2
Hold up, what year is this?
It's the weirdest ish
These so called leaders still fighting wars?
Come on take a pause
Think for a minute the responsibility for all the violence is yours
It feels like I'm caught in the matrix
Why is everybody still thinking so basic
I've gotta find a way to build myself a spaceship
And navigate the galaxies and find new places
VERSE 2

So what do you think's gonna come back
When you try to solve your problems with combat
It's about time you moved beyond that
Little ego and try to make contact
With that, inner child that only knew love
What happened, mama didn't give enough hugs
Were you bullied at school, your child hood rough?
Then why so angry now you're grown up?
Come on, grow up! Stop being a hypocrite
I mean my 8 year old is getting sick of it
How can you say that killing is illegal
Then turn around and celebrate the murder of people
What? They're not quite as equal?
Oh I get, Animal Farm, this is the sequel right
Ok, let's carry on playing the game
And pretend that we're not insane

CHORUS 3

Hold up, what year is this?
It's the weirdest ish
Are you telling me religion’s still relevant?
Please, where’s the evidence?
Are we really gonna keep walking round this room and ignore that elephant?
It feels like I'm caught in the matrix
Why is everybody still thinking so basic
I've gotta find a way to build myself a spaceship
And navigate the galaxies and find new places







VERSE 3

Ok so you believe in God you believe in the Devil
If you believe in the Devil then on some level
You should be prepared to accept the position
There's a 50/50 chance the devil started religion
Now listen, do you not think the Devil is smart enough
To put together a plan to keep us apart?
And what separates us more than these rituals
That we derive from text that we claim are spiritual?
I'm just saying, the possibilty is there,
You weren't there so how can you really swear
That these text were the wd of God
When the chance that the Devil is behind them is not that hard
To believe, just look at what'ss been achieved
In the name of religion I mean people please
Just take some time to chew before you swallow
And don't let fear dictate your tomorrow
