The Chicago Rap Artist, dbone, was working hard this Spring and as the rain poured onto the Chicago Streets, snippets of his first mixtape have been flowing from his facebook and twitter accounts.  Everybody has been searching and asking for that leak, but all they found were a few sneak peeks.  That is until last Saturday Night, when the lucky ones were poppin’ bottles in Chicago with dbone and listening to the first spin of hoarders: buried alive in caps and kicks.  A few were able to walk out with a hard copy, as well as some brooklyn betty giveaways.  But for everyone else, I invite you to eat well, drink premium & listen even better on 6/28/2011.  Grab your digital copy of the mixtape HERE.

I met a girl from Union Square [Samantha Blurrrr]
I met a girl from Union Square [Samantha Blurrrr]
From Union Square…

I met a girl from Union Square
She said, “The hibiscus in my hair
It’s hot in the summertime, it’s drying up
I’ve been seeing mirages like dreaming
My mind is dizzy, busy drinking
Thoughts dripping from water towers
My mind is rapt, dancing in the green market
Dancing in the mixture of flowers”

An enigma found through history
People come and go to the Square of Union
In search of the pearls of the city
There’s reminisce, there’s talk
In the center, like the coliseum
No one comes to blows, the quivers full of delight
She’s a butterfly getting along with the bees
Outside in the park as a bird in flight
Perched on the bench her scarf blows in the breeze
Here she learned to crawl then walk with her mouth
A broken faucet, it’s running through naught
The spider queen has nothing on her
In the webs she’s never been caught
And when she looks in the mirror
She sees what others died for all these years they sought
The treasures that can’t n’err be bought

She’s the one without a two face
She walks above and beyond – beneath the sur-face
At a mind-staggering-earth-shattering pace
Spiritually deep, untied like shoe-lace
Converse rides – Miss Samantha Blurrrrr
Goes on escapades in Union Square
Roaming earth in a lifetime search
For trees of bark and birch
Scared of changing from miss to Mrs.
Hanging around in the caldisack
Speaking with walkabouts
Ski mask grabs her purse
What’s all that about
Spectators stand while tears roll with curse
Another black and tan
Society driving in a Hearst
Mase hit face like pan
Flying in with Hero she flirt
Out to eat – Indian with schwarma
It was cold then excitement came
Mind-enlightenment made it warmer
It’ll never be the same
Talk about Karma
She always getting the most
Her river flows to the east – to the coast
