about

This EP is made up of three tracks from my upcoming album "The coolest Nerd you know". I chose these three because I feel they summed up what the final album will be about and give you a feel of the type of music I'm laying down. If you like the eclectiX EP, then you'll probably like the final album. It will be a mixture of my soul, heart and mind . . . which means it will be all over the place.
I do have ulterior motives for releasing this EP as well as the album (no smartalik, it's not just money). Performing doesn't really suit me, but I love creating new instrumentals and writing lyrics. Bottom line, working with other artist and trying to create a song that expresses what they are trying to say in an entertaining way is what I'd like to do. Unfortunately, finding other artist that are geologically close and have the time to put into music is difficult even with the internet because perception means a great deal. Right now I'm basically a nobody in the music world. Most artist want to work with others that know what they are doing. Just like a picture is worth a thousand words, a finished album is the same thing for the music biz. Assuming the listener likes my genre of music, I want them to listen and know if they worked on a track with me, it would be up to a certain standard. I'm treating this EP and the upcoming album like a music resume. I'm hoping to share it with others and grab some artists' attention and show that I'm capable of putting together a good product.
So if you're a listener, thanks for checking it out. If your an artist, contact me. I'd love to collab.

Track Name: JXD (feat. Danielle Marie and Mia) - Shake it up
INTRO
Hey Mia. What do you want them to do?
Shake it baby.
JXD, Danielle Marie, Mia
Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt this program to bring you important news

VERSE 1
If you're layin' in the cut, stand on up
If your cruising in your whip turn your speakers up
And if your up in the club, put your hands on up
If your sittin' at work, sing along while doin' paperwork
food for thought, encourage your train of thought
don't want your brain rot, lady's i gotcha stocked
stuck in a rut, This is 4 wheel deluxe
The big dog is here, don't worry young pups
I'm the redundant assassin here to mix it up
I'm the charm with the leprechaun bringing ya luck
Put the classics in the attic for a spell, rock the new hotness; its got that new car smell
frownin' all week, try laughin' for a while
sick of the same music, try changing the dial
hate being broke, try investin' in your dreams
not feelin' that, just sit and listen to me, baby

CHORUS
You can wait around
Go round and round
Same ol' sound
Shake it up!
You can play it out
Take the same ol' route
Same ol' style
Shake it up!
You can wait around
Go round and round
Same ol' sound
Shake it up!
You can play it out
Take the same ol' route
Same ol' style
Shake it up!

VERSE 2
Couldn't keep up with the jones' so I started my own race, new attitude with a new pace
Replaced the silicon, it was too fake, money exchange, tryin' to change the rate
Tired of the merry go round, I'm off to swings
when I'm up high, I'm gonna jump to new things.
Old wrestler, the undertaker of re-players
To fast, passed a tortoise like a hair
Pardon me sir, haven't heard
Life's a blur, mr bond had it all along, shaken not stirred
Even money-penny concurs
bump what you heard, Birds the word
and I just flew over the cuckoos nest
Nurse R with some pills to keep me mentally wrecked,
*they're great, they'll help you keep your wits up*
Bump that, I'm jack, and I'm tryin' to shake it on up

CHORUS
You can wait around
Go round and round
Same ol' sound
Shake it up!
You can play it out
Take the same ol' route
Same ol' style
Shake it up!
You can wait around
Go round and round
Same ol' sound
Shake it up!
You can play it out
Take the same ol' route
Same ol' style
Shake it up!
You can wait around
Go round and round
Same ol' sound
Shake it up!
You can play it out
Take the same ol' route
Same ol' style
Shake it up!

shake it baby
here we go again
here we go again
Shake it up!
here we go again
here we go again
here we go again
here we go again
Shake it baby
here we go again

Track Name: Off my chest
Intro
Check it out
I wanna get something off my chest
Uh

VERSE 1
I’m solo on this track
No one on my six strapped to watch my back
Feelin' like I got box full of fakes can’t hold em back
Shootin' blanks like neutered cat
Uh huh, yeah
The metaphor I explore, is what holds my doubt
My internal conflict is what I’m speakin' about
Wanna give up, throw up the white flag, but if I do, I know this man ain't comin' back
Indecision, I’m tearing apart, my souls flatlinin' and insurance won’t cover the open heart
Fakers Stop preaching on god, i see you in the devils playground all day long
Oh well, pack my bags and my jewels, if you're speak the truth, then I'll see you in hell
Meantime, work the hot fields, endure the pain-stake
But can I keep fightin' if I never taste the lemonade

CHORUS
Hold on to my faith and friends
It’s struggle, but it ain't the end
Talk about it, get it off my chest
Watch my spirits lift
Perspective , control my doubts
Find the light, breaks in the clouds
Shed the baggage, there we go
Get it off my chest, let it go

VERSE 2
The more you struggle, the quicker ya sink
its quicksand baby, hold on to your dreams
I'm the mad hatter in this vision i see,
I'm caught in the wonderland lost sea
CSI couldn't track me patrolling the beat
This ain't allegory, its the mind of JXD
I HATE, what this world has done to me
Mentally I'm a screwed up and crazy G
I'm a young black specimen: Fightin' for the reckonin'
and every day I make it I’m pushing for the testament.
Systematic putting beats together, Music is the glue that holds me together
Shortage of real cats among fakes and frauds, can't spot 'em
princes made from frogs
No nonsense , I got goals to make.
I'm the notary man, I'm stampin' the date

CHORUS
Hold on to my faith and friends
It’s struggle, but it ain't the end
Talk about it, get it off my chest
Watch my spirits lift
Perspective , control my doubts
Find the light, breaks in the clouds
Shed the baggage, there we go
Get it off my chest, let it go
