    The Proforms “Elroy Preston” Release | @TheProforms @ace_one_ @proformjoe @skittzformpro @djspoolz

    Well, it’s tax day, and that means that it’s time for us to share The Proforms‘ second project as a group. This seven-track EP is a tribute to Elroy Preston, one of their favorite musical icons. The group’s Joe Harvey produced the entire project, and of course DJ Spoolz provided all of the cuts. Their new album release party will be this Saturday, April 19th at Sabbatical (921 Broad Ripple Avenue). They will be joined by Tony Styxx and Pope Adrian Bless on the stage.

    In other Proforms news, their first album, titled Atavism (and also sponsored by us here at BDTB), was recently chosen by Indy’s Nuvo Magazine as one of the 100 best albums to come out of Indiana. That’s pretty cool.

    Skittz & LONEgevity Presents Beats & Breakfast S2E4: “Get Back” ft. R-Juna & Ace One | @beatsxbreakfast

    It’s hard to believe that we’re already on the 4th episode, but here we are today sharing the next episode of our Beats & Breakfast series with Skittz and LONEgevity! For this episode we brought in R-Juna (Strong Roots Records) of Bloomington, Indiana area and Ace One (Cut Camp / Proforms / Breakdown Kings). Skittz cooked up some chicken with corn flakes and pancakes, and other great items. It was a clean, comedic day of making music, and the record turned out quite dirty. That’ll all make sense as you watch and listen. Check below as you can see the credits for episode 4, listen and purchase the song on your favorite medium, and follow along with the lyrics!

    “Get Back” Credits:
    Verses: R-Juna, LONEgevity, Ace One
    Chorus: Skittz, Ace One
    Production: LONEgevity

    Purchase Get Back” Below:


    Verse 1: R-Juna
    The hip hop Oroku Sak show you how to blow the spot
    Whether ya know it or not, one of the dopest to rock
    I stay exposin’ the plot with flows that’s nonstop
    Keeping this shit on lock til the bombs drop
    MC’s got the itis we’re raw rhythm providers
    So be surprised when everybody tries to bite us
    King Midas of the mic and key
    Guarantee ya fake artist ain’t as nice as me, light tree
    puff puff pass to me, I’m about to change ya mind frame drastically
    For me it has to be, nothin but the authentic rawthenic
    Sweet poison from the flow of R-senic
    Though I live conscious, spit reckless
    Back to the basics beats with ya breakfast
    We don’t give a shit about ya chips and ya necklace
    Buscemi-ass rappers with a strap and a checklist

    Chorus: Skittz / Ace One
    Get back to the basics…back to the real
    Get back to creative…back to the skill
    Get back to the basics…back to the real
    Get back to creative…back to the skill
    Get back to the basics…back to the real
    Get back to creative…back to the skill
    These are the times we destroy and rebuild
    Bring the noise it’s time to get ill

    Verse 2: LONEgevity
    Take me away from tomorrow..the “oh no” sorrows
    Got a light or thought that I could borrow?
    I craft like a doctor, Dr. Morrow
    I put ya head where ya ass lies and pull back like a Toro
    I start it up premium, keep it all regular
    Skills extra medium, but you still feeding him
    Secular rose thorns is second to no form
    Meaning: if struggle’s your lifestyle then I fucks with you no more
    Still friendly but passive tendencies are wrecking me
    Social awkwardness is a face bone specialty
    I smile no option aside, I look alive
    With the mouth of a screaming dragon…I rise
    I fly not the same
    Chances are I’m sane to my A-alikes, but otherwise I’m quite strange
    But that’s what happens when you try to be “you” in a world of the same…

    Chorus: Skittz / Ace one

    Verse 3: Ace One
    We buck wildin’ like restless natives on an island
    Backflippin’ on mattresses and sleeping on pallets
    We kick it dumb dude, kung fu… Shaolin
    Parappa rapper rapping ass rappers are going down
    Not by violence, we silence, by style and
    Assassins Creed every passage we speak…murder sound
    Pump up the volume…don’t ever turn it down
    Turn it up loud don’t ever turn it down…
    Here’s the lesson that you need to learn now
    We the public enemy that’s burning Hollywood down
    The reason Jack White’s home is Dollywood now
    In the middle, we got that sound that you ain’t heard in a while
    Bout to do it…like it ain’t been done… in some while
    Give you that feeling like you ain’t known in a while
    When you hear it in your spirit and know that it’s going down
    It’s time to tune in and zone out…nap..town

    Chorus: Skittz / Ace One
