[Vidéo] Joseph Rose : "Major Label" (Paroles / Lyrics)

Comme un peu partout dans le monde, la scène Rap canadienne est aussi riche que celle des autres genres musicaux. Du côté de Vancouver, on trouve Madchild (parmi tant d'autres), mais aussi Joseph Rose (avec qui le premier a d'ailleurs collaboré sur "Hands Dirty" et "Little Things").

Cette fois, Joseph Rose nous parle de son indépendance, de la difficulté d'arriver à signer avec une major et des contraintes que cela entraîne, tant pour lui que pour le label vis-à-vis de lui. Un morceau au propos et au flow lisibles servis par un clip dans lequel la belle Sierra Gedeon passe difficilement inaperçu...


I'm in the elevator, already on my way up
Hands in my pockets, so the tattoos, they don't show up
On the camera I'm just frontin', look classy in front of everyone
But I'm a good guy, don't fuckin' judge for the shit I've done
Anyways, I'm headed up to the hundred floor, I gotta meet an Universal executive at quarter of four
Sony Music, Warner Brothers, Epic and more, I'm still kinda undecided how much more I'm gonna settle for (Sorry, ah)
I kinda have my heart's set on death champ, maybe call me back when you'll add a few more million
I rather keep on goin' my independent route, where everyone inside of my circle doesn't open the mouth
You know what I'm into and capable to do, the things that I've been through, I grew up way different than you
You see that look in my eye, you think I'm that type of guy, I guess it look kinda obvious, man, you probably right
Yeah

I've got no excuses, yeah, move us to a Major Label
They wanna distribute it, just put all the cards on the table
I've got no excuses, yeah, move us to a Major Label
They wanna distribute it, I know your rhythm but..
Are you able ?


Now I'm a the head office, about to walk in, the secretary asked for my name, I take a sit (What yours?)
Grab a magazine to read, I hope it doesn't take too long 'cause I got another important appointment at quarter of three
Punctuality's important to me, it's doesn't matter who you are, I'm not gonna sit and stick around
I'm all over the planet, you can keep pretentical town, and fuck the mainstream and all of the underground
Anyways, the finally invite me to the office, my lawyer breaks down the contract microscopic
So I got creator control and own my own rights which means nobody can copy or mock it, I like it
I said "Let's do it" but just read to find details, just in case they trynna screw us, if it's all good sign seal and deliver
It's all gonna work out, ain't no point in bein' so bitter

I've got no excuses (No excuses)
Keep move us to the Major Label (Major Label)
They wanna distribute it (Distribute it)
Just put all the cards on the table (On the table)
I've got on excuses (No excuses)
Yeah, move us to the Major Label (Major Label)
They wanna distribute it (Distribute it)
I know your rhythm but..
Are you able? (Are you able?)


That's just who I am
Don't need to know why
Just be patient, and..
The hard time will go by (Go by, ah)
