about

This EP captures the real behind the scene lives of two young men struggling in life, while trying to maintain a failing music career.

In "The Under Dawgs" EP Fleurimond (Lyricist) and JB (Vocalist) really show a side of urban artist that you have yet to see. Hip-Hop and R&B is known for misogynistic lyrics and arrogance galore, it is in these two genres that JB and Fleurimond paint a picture of two vulnerable and very beaten down individuals. This EP proves that no one should ever write off any genre, for there might still be a gem yet discovered.

Track Name: Hopeless (Intro)
First Verse JB:
Have you waited for,
Good things to come.
To live and learn,
You crashed and burn.
Then friends turn foes,
They leave and go,
What are we doing?
Say why are we losing?

Hook JB and Fleurimond:
When it's all said and done,
It seems hopeless.
Hopeless, Hopeless, Hopeless
(Repeat)

Second Verse Fleurimond:
I'm fueled by the addiction,
This liquor gives me peace and it eases my intentions,
10 years on a grind makes you bitter not to mention,
The failed relationships, miscarriages resentment,
A life commitment naw better yet a life sentence,
A wise rapper said mo money mo problems,
I feel like I'm rich but with none of the commission,
Ten years and still no success,
I guess that's why i feel it's hopeless.

Hook JB and Fleurimond:
When it's all said and done,
It seems hopeless.
Hopeless, Hopeless, Hopeless
(Repeat)

Third Verse JB:
Have you been requested for,
To weigh the world,
On your shoulder,
Ask how much longer,
Welcome to the life of being under.
Track Name: Clarity
Hook Ludas:
Been through pain,
Clouds and rain,
But I never stop fighting for a better day.
I stood tall,
Through it all,
Looking back I could see I cam from a long way. (Repeat)

Verse 1 Fleurimond:
These words are to empower,
These words should give me power,
But these words just make me sour,
I'm in my darkest hour,
In the dark I'm in my zone,
Sitting all alone,
With this bottle of patron,
To console me through the storm.
My Self pity engulfs me,
Don't pity me ,
Because this liquor will indulge me,
It loves and adores me,
Let me bathe in your strength,
Just take away this pain, please ease my pain,
Make me numb till I'm insane,
Make me numb until my brain,
Doesn't recall a thing,
Wash away these stains,
Of failure in which I'm stained,
Failure, bastard, useless, it's the same,
Let me take a sip bare the shame while it plays.

Hook Ludas:
Been through pain,
Clouds and rain,
But I never stop fighting for a better day.
I stood tall,
Through it all,
Looking back I could see I cam from a long way. (Repeat)

Verse 2 Fleurimond:
These words should inspire,
These words should light a fire,
But these words are liar,
Unattainable desires,
I'm back for round two,
Fresh bottle of absolute,
Hope this bottle has this truth,
Unlike the bottle of grey goose, set me loose,
On my personal quest to find the truth,
To uncover all the lies,
This lying world has spewed, so confused,
Humble Been patient I paid my dues,
Stay humble but yet I loose,
Where's the future they debuted.
From the teachers to the movies,
They all lied to me,
Didn't Aladdin get Jasmine,
Didn't Simba become King,
Didn't you say to me,
If I dream I shall achieve,
Well let my dream,
I'm a drink until deceased.

Hook Ludas:
Been through pain,
Clouds and rain,
But I never stop fighting for a better day.
I stood tall,
Through it all,
Looking back I could see I cam from a long way. (Repeat)

Verse 3 Fleurimnd:
My visions getting blurred,
My words start to slur,
But I will not be deterred,
From the destruction which I've reserved.
Deep in my depression,
Lost in my own obsession,
For acceptance,
Just to be greeted by the rejection, it's so vexing.
Friends, family, strangers, it's still rejecting, felt neglected,
That’s when this bottle became such a blessing,
It was heaven,
This feeling became my only weapon, of suppression,
Awake physically but mentally asleep inception,
Accepting the pain, bathe in the rain,
Not another step because I'm physically drained,
With No more left to give, I accept that this is it,
Take My final swig, moment of clarity so clear.

Hook Ludas:
Been through pain,
Clouds and rain,
But I never stop fighting for a better day.
I stood tall,
Through it all,
Looking back I could see I cam from a long way. (Repeat)
Track Name: Escape
Intro Fleurimond:
Hey no stress tonight,
The vibe feeling nice and this drink got me right, right
Got me feeling so high, everybody say it Loud,
Just let me live life,

First Verse Fleurimond:
Bills piled up, and my rent bout due, (due)
Car repoed, and I'm feeling so screwed, (screwed)
Me and my girl about through,
Call Topnotch, let's go and get loose,
Mix my Patron with Cranberry juice,
Three straight shots just to get me in the mood, (mood)
Parking lot Pre-Game,
Gotta get right before we even step through,(true)
Cell Phones off for the you know who,
No ring, no wife, no time for bugaboos, (you lose)
Get live tonight,
Take a sip, get right, live life tonight!

Hook JB:
Escape tonight,
Sit by the bar tonight,
Live the life,
Clear Your Mind,
Two cubes of ice,
A little bit a splash of Sprite,
Just vibe tonight,
Live the life.
And let's
Let's Go, go, go, go, go, go, go < -- Repeat
Track Name: Under Dawgs
Verse 1 Fleurimond:
I been running this marathon, no finish line in sight,
But I must carry on, something's give tonight,
Let it be clear, cause everything's on the line,
For the last time, I-I'm

Underestimated with no more self esteem,
Throwing in the towel's not an option so it seems,
So now what?
Do you give up on your dreams,
Nope! Failure not an option,
Only choice... Succeed,
So now You backed against a wall, adversity standing tall,
It seems like your own family waiting for you to fall,
And friends don't speak,
You fall to your knees like please,
And it seems like even he can't be reached,
Well Under Dawg it's time for you to bark,
It's time for you to snarl, it's time to show some teeth,
Hell it's time to show the world your not so weak,
You'd rather die on your feet than living on your knees,
When Faith in yourself, is your only option,
You have no other choice, You must believe,
Finally a song for the lost,
Its been a long time coming an anthem for the underdogs

Hook JB:
Whoa Under!
(Repeat 6 times)

The Under Dawgs, The Under Dawgs,
One time everybody for the Under Dawgs,
The Under Dawgs, The Under Dawgs,
Hands up let's hear it for the Under Dawgs. (Repeat)
Don't Stop Running

Verse 2 Fleurimond:
Under rated, under achiever, sleeper
Unappreciated, the black sheep, a dreamer,
Walls closing in, 5 minutes please,
I'm begging for a breather,
No such luck,
No sleep for the weak, no light for the blind,
Gotta put in over time if you wanna shine,
So what this means to all under dogs,
no more looking down because there's only the climb,
Wipe the tears from your eyes,
The world is unkind, it devours and swallows the weak up alive,
This is the revolution, Under dogs salute,
No longer are we losers, it's our time to rise
Give'em hell,
Show you won't fade into the night,
With a defiant voice, say... "I AM ALIVE!"
With that said, the under dogs have finally arrived,

Verse 3 JB:
Close your eyes,
Take a look into forever,
It's fresh,
The Beginning of an Era,
The fuse to light the spark,
From your mind to your soul,
So the world could feel your heart.
My Under Dawgs,
Hold my hand why don't you walk with me,
I lend my ear to let you talk to me,
It's the changing of the game,
And on this wall we all write our name of fame,
Push Back
And if you rather kill,
Under Dawg front line of the battle field,
Yeah I know you like the thrill,
Hard work, Sweat, blood, and a lot of will,
They say this the year, of no fear,
It's the changing of the game,
And on this wall we all write our names of fame,
Cause We are Under Dawgs, we Under Dawgs,
Hands up everybody for the Under Dawgs.
The Under Dawgs, The Under Dawgs,
Don't Stop Running
Track Name: Heart of A Champion
Verse 1 Fleurimond:
Over matched, out classed, that's just the first look.
I should pass, I should gag, I should just stay shook.
Look at that, he's to fat, stupid that's just looks.
Cause at last, long last, under dogs run the books!
I could take you worst, in fact that's just what I deserve.
Kick me, hit me, spit on me th-that just fuels the urge.
And this feeling building inside me th-that's just the nerve.
Counting me out, big mistake, cause I feel a sudden surge.
I'm born a loser, I guess that's just why I'm going hard.
For every insult, every loss, it just gives me the heart.
Don't stop, keep stabbing until I get the scar
I wouldn't have it any other way cause I'm an Under Dawg.

Hook
(crowd) Cause I'm a Under Dawg, Cause I'm a Under Dawg,
(Fleurimond) Heart of a Champion Baby, Yes I'm an Under Dawg.
{repeat}

Verse 2 Fleurimond:
I live by faith, baby I die by faith,
Give me food, I'm a glutton, I only feed of hate.
Let them say what they say, uh-uh I won't be phased.
Pressure produces diamonds and diamonds trumping spades.
This is the last time, You'll underestimate.
the true heart of Lion's power can not be tamed.
This that warrior music you just can not relate.
The good life got comfy is why lost today.
Cause you lost the heart, cause you wasn't going hard.
And that's why it's the year, of the Under Dawg.

Hook
(crowd) Cause I'm a Under Dawg, Cause I'm a Under Dawg,
(Fleurimond) Heart of a Champion Baby, Yes I'm an Under Dawg.
{repeat}

Verse 3 JB:
It's all out,
Going all in,
The Champion,
Cause we in this to win,
They count us out,
Won't let me in,
The more you knock me down,
The longer I will stand!

Hook
(crowd) Cause I'm a Under Dawg, Cause I'm a Under Dawg,
(Fleurimond) Heart of a Champion Baby, Yes I'm an Under Dawg.
{repeat}
