Ode To This Beat (FF 76)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



This beat got legs
It might walk to the abyss and peer over the edge
It might contemplate the risk of jumping over the ledge
Then show up to your crib and fix some bacon and eggs
Breaking some bread, making some friends
This beat got years ahead of it I’m merely breaking it in
Never feeling out of place it’s comfortable in it’s skin
Never frontin actin fake it doesn’t have to pretend
Got a passion for making things happen magic begins
The instant this beat meets up with an emcee’s pad and a pen
This beat is ballin, runnin up a tab and it spends
Like Diddy in ’98 with a charismatic grin
When I’m rappin on this beat I get sad when it ends
A little sappy but I’m happy just to know where we’ve been
We’ve had a lot of good times together memories and rhymes I’ll treasure
This beat let me down easy, nothing lasts forever
