Lewis M. Boston, Massachusetts

Lewis M. is a boston-based (and Providence born) poet, beatmaker, and MC. He has performed at the Apollo Theater in NYC, The Smithsonian, among many other venues. His beats retain a refreshingly simplified approach to hip-hop production that harkens back to the boom-bap of the 90's while remaining fresh and new.

Track Name: Heel Turn
On my heel turn shit.
Bash at the Beach 96.
Been a hermit, nigga.
Too afraid to exist without a permit, nigga.
Like I packed a plastic fork
to do battle with nigga
with a samurai sword.
I’m ill-equipped for this shit,
and by shit I mean LIFE.
My pens runs out of ink
any time I try to write..
I swallow all the bile and emotion
half-hoping that choke on it,
and vomit it at an empty page.
But, I ain’t that fucking lucky.
Call me bitter. I’m asking…
a question… which one,
I don’t know… Guess I’m destined
to never have answers…
Forgive my lack of panic.
But, uncertainty’s a fact of life,
and it’s fucking standard.
Oh so boring at this point.
can’t afford to really worry.
Yet I’m worried at my lack of worry,
verdict on myself as if
I am my own jury.
This song, you already heard it,
know the words, just sing along.
Just sing along, y’all.
I am a disaster,
for real thanks for asking.
If I wanted to be anonymous,
I really should quit rapping.
Stick to staying home,
and watching netflix while
eating breakfast as my roommates ask,
hey nigga, wheres the rent kid.
Hate to hear my own voice,
must be why I self-censor.
Insecurity is its own
shitty fucking adventure.
Chew on my own truth,
keeps cutting the roof of my gums…
Can’t feel the words I speak,
my mouth is numb.
Dumb shit.
