about

Meltdown, the second single from his project Dream Release is influenced be re-occurring nightmares he has in regards to global chaos and the climate crisis. Raw lyricism with a flow influenced by the likes of Big Pun and Black Thought. Tufawon takes you back to the golden era of Hip Hop in this gritty boom bap track.

Every last Friday of each month Tufawon releases an exclusive single. He has been keeping a dream journal for the past several months, and the songs are themed around the dreams he logs. Some are literal translations, and some are simply influenced by the energy of any given dream. Some of them are even related to his day dreams. Step inside the mind of Tufawon as he shares a side of himself that would likely be forgotten without this journal. Through his art, he preserves his visions.

lyrics

Southside Minneap’

Brrr stick ‘em ha-ha-ha stick ‘em
Brrr stick ‘em ha-ha-ha stick ‘em

mask up, hoodies on style grim reaper
slice throat grave site flow dig deeper
Bang this shit loud on some real big speakers
forgot about the rap flow you must have amnesia
Anonymous post apocalypse kill a zombie shit
Clouds ominous down pour on the whole audience
bring the pain while I’m bringing the rain I bring
light where its dark still spitting the flame, uh
I’m having visions of the sky fallin
In a world quite lawless so use caution
i’m Keeping a dream log, what I see is so daunting
hesitating to write it all down it’s too haunting
i’m seeing cyclones tornadoes and hurricanes
landslides and flooded plains I’m talkin title waves
death and dark spirits its fuckin up my brain
Thoughts moving like a hydroplane and now I’m wide awake
And you wonder why we all struggle
The common theme is to exist within a small bubble
Micro aggressions from a small huddle, the one percent
Won’t be defeated ’til we all rebuttle, its trouble

Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
‘Cause we must be living in hell now
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
‘Cause we must be living in hell now

I’m from that home of purple rain
Tufawon will move a ton of dope shit to say
With a whole clip of flows kicking won’t slip away
Choke hold with a cold grip, leave em wit a broke hip
Dakota 38 descendant with a secret weapon
My pen will lead the insurrection like a smith and Wesson
More like a tomahawk you prolly on an instant message
Telling your mistress it’s impressive when we get to flexin
Topic of conversation I’m talking annihilation
Upon arrival and all my rivals, abominations
Fuck everything basic I’m on a different wavelength
I’m hoppin on a spaceship and land in different places
Puerto Rican Rick and Morty ‘cause I’m sort of loco
Because I think beyond local and I’m not a bozo
Yo it’s the prophetic, authentic, odyssey
Brown pride honestly, south side anomaly
Take flights economy I’m on my way to Paris though
Train ride bay side about to play a pair of shows
Just shot a video, catch me in the south of France
I got a solid plan to earn over a thousand fans
Keynote speaker and my speech will leave ‘em speechless
In an auditorium where people don’t speak English
United Nations with a black hoodie sneakers on
Reppin my people strong like smoking with Cheech and Chong
Fresh fade everyday, ten page resume
Abbey road institute, fresh made lemonade
Control my own destiny flow with my own recipe
Conduct my own symphony show ‘em I know telepathy
From tipis to the tenements I represent my lineage
And messages will transcend here’s the evidence
I’m living proof I’m at the pinnacle
Divinity up in the booth is what I give to you spit the truth

Brrr stick ‘em ha-ha-ha stick ‘em
Brrr stick ‘em ha-ha-ha stick ‘em

Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
‘Cause we must be living in hell now
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
Everybody’s having a meltdown
‘Cause we must be living in hell now

Even if I stuttered I will still sh-sh-shit on you.. haha
