See I have this associate of mines
And whenever I see him I speak
and ask him
“What sup?”
“Whats good?”
He be like
“Chilling, just Chilling”
“Ya feel me”
20 years old
With the daily routine
Rap bullshit lyrics
That words are similar to those in comics
Try to get girls with the same bogus
Yellow bus as lines
Tries to be hard
But doesn’t know how to execute it
See hard to him is grabbing a gun
And spraying a few niggas
Fucking every girl
Getting fucked up and selling drugs to his society
Just to add up figures
And cursing in every sentence his tongue weaves together
And dresses like he grabbed the clothes
His dad left behind
When he left him and his mother
Ass out on their behinds
Trying to fill the shoes of the fictional gangsters
Like to be auditioning for a role to play in
Boyz in the Hood
Those fellas who played the roles in
Blood in Blood out
But he doesn’t know the real definition of being hard
For he been broke the number one rule of being hard
Never break to your situation
And he been done that
After becoming another statistic
Another standard black male
Spending everyday doing the samething ….. Chilling
Monday thru Sunday ….. Chilling
365 days beneath the sun ….. Chilling
While puffing on some weed
Dressed in his regular oversized white tee
Baggy pants that drag off his ass
Sitting in that same spot like he does everyday
Using the excuse that his life was hard
Barking out “Thats why I am what I am”
Fuck life ain’t easy for nobody
We all go thru things
But he don’t want to hear that
He doesn’t want to hear the truth
Instead he rather be …. Chilling
I start to think
Maybe he really is ….. Chilling
To point his brain is frozen
Perpetual brainfreeze
Stuck in this mental ice age
Where evolution is far from tomorrow
And he …. is just …. confined there ….. Chilling
In the labyrinth of his mind
Cryogenically frozen
Puffing on his weed
A human popsicle
But actually he’s slowly melting away
Wasting away as time does it toll
He is just one of a dozen
Ice cubes that sit in a tray of yesterday …. Chilling
Never to defrost and evaporate into the skies to rain into tomorrow

Artist's Description

I know for most this is just an expression but for most this is a way of life…..chilling
Do something with your life get up off your ass and START LIVING…AWAKE FROM YOUR CRYOGENIC SLUMBER AND LIVE
I live where alot of young people are “chilling” ….cryogenically sleeping away there lives and think one day something shall just fall in their laps…..just by “chilling”
I we continue to live
and will not get caught chilling
Life is a short trip ….no time for “chilling”
