Slow Down Son!! Your Killing Them!!

*I’ve Got The Speed You Need*

They told me to slow down son!! your killing them!! “said I couldn’t stand the heat” like that joint I heard on Kiss 104 in Atlanta by Loose Ends…

I Told them; “they should know how Brotha O gets down.”  I’m *Moving At A High Velocity* please!! these folks will have you “Hanging On A String” by who? Loose Ends!!

Previous episodes in life? a lot of loose ends, fragments, breaks, bad breaks, setbacks!! damn!! I had to let go!! I had too much baggage..

Easy to get it was Afghanistan / Pakistan/ Iraq / Somalia!!  but from Ferguson to Baltimore to even Charleston  they’ll get foul with ya!!  we’re all up in the spot where *Reason Gave Way To Madness*

Back with this!! I never bragged or boasted, but I got roasted by these comedians!!  some of it was personal, I told you they want me to slow down!!  some can’t catch what they can’t understand..

High Velocity with the speed you need!!  but some want to catch me out there by the border like David Sweat up in New York!! they want me to take it down a thousand..

True indeed!!  some will cry something something / something something  *just ain’t right* like Keith Sweat!! reality will house them…

Blue collar style work is put in!!! we break out in a Cold Sweat like James Brown!! now the Hot Message is delivered;  we’re *All Up In The House Again*

Once chilling up on Mars, but aliens  aroused me!! now It’s On / Once Again, we had to leave the Red Planet!! .

Mystic Voyages were taken, now I’m back  down on earth with this BreakBeat Science business after the mothership landed..

Back down to earth!! we’re moving at a high velocity!! jokers moving in slow motion were shouting slow down son!! your killing them!!

Like Rare Earth I told them to Get Ready!! I was actually trying to help the massive, I’m at the service desk returning bogus merchandise, plus throwing in these bad hands gamblers out for a fast buck were dealing them!!

Check out the Intergalactic High Velocity Mix by O-Dog

Reality Checks (Thirsty Thursday Edition)

Weather forecasters mention ninety degree weather down here in Atlanta; that enabled this Special Thirsty Thursday  Edition…

Whatever said those that hated!! due to the hot weather I stay hydrated!!  now the O-Dog Podcast will blast!!  check this brand new funk from a brotha; as I play the new rendition…

Reality checks are cashed, now some will get what’s coing to them!!   where were they hiding? joints I’m casing like crooks for the home invasion…

Reality checks are cashed!! but no merchandise can be purchased at Lithonia’s Stonecrest Mall like Crooks and Castles outfits; damn!! I guess I’m out of it, but somebody said it’s all love like Babyface. and the Deele;  on more than two occasions..

Reality Checks are cashed, only merchandise purchased was Clearance Rack Epiphanies  on this hot day /  Thirsty Thursday..

Reality Checks are cashed, now some are basket cases!! storm clouds roll in due to Dylann Roof  and other StormFront roll calling!!  proof of history repeating? Throwback Thursday?

An agent of this reality disrespects like Donald Trump fronting on Mexico; some devil’s advocates won’t let go,  they’ll spark it..

So what’s up with a brotha? sounds will thump as I cash reality checks and make sound effects!!  during intergalactic journeys I interacted with aliens who told me how the funk should go!! now I’m back down to earth; the Mothership? I’ll park it…

Noticed how dark it’ll get;  Reason Gave Way To Madness!!  some will try to change their identity like Bobby Jindal!!

Ear shattering gunshots exploded as the situation got out of control!! plus haters tried to identify me as one who’ll roll with  Hazardous Material!!

Fear bruising and battering egos eroded confidence!!  Republicans frustrated because they can’t stop Obamacare?

Winning?  / losing?  episodes shattering a Negro’s confidence? naw man!! I  just drink up!! then I keep cashing these reality checks!! it’s my method of payment, as I take it there!

Reality Checks : My Method Of Payment

Whatcha Know? I thought I told you it’s rough out here!!  Reality Checks are my method of  payments

My reality? like Slick Rick / Doug E Fresh O-Dog is cashing checks and making sound effects; staying a step ahead of Hunger Games Peacekeepers trying to avoid arraignments..

Arrangements made with slick lawyers?  Rick Ross is going to need one, out in Evander Holyfield’s old house trying to get slick..

Rain gets heavy during the storm; the reign began with a drizzle, but I’m not trying to get sick..

The pain gets heavy!! due to previous episodes I’m trying to heal scars!! at the end of the day? some know the dizzle after somebody lied..

No divorce from reality is granted!! please!! don’t get Judge Judy started!! request denied…

Reality Checks issued now somebody cried;  they thought the wages didn’t add up!! was it due to karmic repercussions?

Others were *Shady Like Grady*  like Goldman Sachs vs GM they tried to play me!! these brothas *Rebuked The Hostile Takeover*  with this word and percussions..

O-Zone? he had sacks of this good word!!   this concrete gospel is preached by this mentalist typing this mental list!! bringing you the discussions..

O-Dog is the funky instrumentalist!! now the Sonic Assault is unleashed!! some will get what’s coming to them due to karmic repercussions!!

Discussions needed between fundamentalists?  Islamic / Christian / Jewish /others; so they can get on the same page?

What’s up son? I kept working with drumkits and typing this good word!! Had to admit, during Outback Chronicles I enjoyed the spoils of spiritual warfare like I was a pirate!! but my people are still suffering per Dylan Roof / Charleston  or even Ferguson / Baltimore type of business , so I’m actually feeling the same rage…
