HARLOT Surrounded by shouts, the cruel accusations dragged to the court, no hope of salvation all hope was lost, becuase those who contain me knew who I was, they caught me in my iniquities I thought it seemed strange as we entered in they're stopping a young Rabbi to ask his opinion 'Imma prostitute', that's why they hate me my body can feel the stones that await me my judge...a man from Galilee yet in his eyes I can see a Father, a Brother, and a Son a Lamb, and a Lion the crowd is gathering, so angry and violent as he stood beside me, so peaceful and silent then with one word and one question He shows them that they too are guilty, and cannot condemn what does He write in the sand this man that's asking me 'were are they' I open my eyes...and through tears, see a courtyard that's empty the stones that were gonna taste my blood had been dropped back onto the ground were they came from ........ and in this new light, I now understood that He would not condenm me, even though He could..... (end with echo)

DIRTY ROTTEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME WHAT DO YOU SEE? YOU DON’T SEE NOTHIN BUT A LOW DOWN, DIRTY, ROTEN SCOUNDREL DID YOU EVER THINK THAT I COULD EDIFY? DID YOU THINK THAT I COULD GLORIFY? OR DO YOU ONLY THINK THAT EVERYTHING IS A LIE? OR DO YOU ONLY THINK I AM HERE TO MAKE EM CRY!? WHAT DO YOU THINK!? DID YOU EVER REALIZE? OR SEE POTENTIAL? AND DID YOU EVER THINK THAT I WAS DEPENDABLE? AND DID YOU EVER THINK THAT I WAS DEFENDABLE? OR DO YOU ONLY THINK THAT I WAS EXPENDABLE? WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME DID YOU EVER SEE A LEADER? DID YOU EVER SEE A SERVANT? NO! YOU ONLY SAW A LOW DOWN, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDREL? DID YOU EVER SEE A FATHER? DID YOU EVER SEE A HUSBAND? DID YOU EVER SEE THE SPIRIT? DID YOU EVER SEE THE SPIRIT? DID YOU EVER SEE JESUS? DID YOU EVER SEE ANYTHING!? DO NOT YOUR EYES TO SEE ME.

about

Dirt's second Project. This album received rave reviews (check the iTunes comments alone) for it's powerful emotional authority set in a hiphop landscape. Dirt was seen as obviously grown and maturing in Rap's game, refusing to stay the same or settle for a repeat of the first.

Don't get it twisted though. This doesn't mean you shouldn't expect the same stylized vocal presence that is unique to Dirt. On this album you get the same rough, underground flow that smashes the mainstreams perception of music, and in addition, an emotional MC that dives into his own psyche to deliver some awesomely deep and moving songs.

The lyrical content is very sincere, revealing and heartfelt, laid over production to match. Famed guitarist/musician, Jesse Sprinkle, surprisingly shows up to add the engineering presence which sends the entire project into an exciting state that melds genres while staying true to Dirt's passion as a Hiphop purist.

Many artist feature on this album, of course, representing the 'Shadow of the locust' banner with the quality and credibility we've come to expect from the crew. At the same time, Dirt definately holds his own on this highly memorable project that should NOT be slept on.
