Free The Optimus lyricists C.Shreve the Professor & Mike L!VE just released another collaboration from their forthcoming album 'FTOLive'. On "Family Tree", Shreve & L!VE contrast a laid back soundscape (courtesy of Japanese producer minthaze) with the razor sharp lyricism that has become their trademark.
You want in the game? Try it out, make a team / But it’s step by step and rep by rep, there ain’t no fakin dreams / You foolin yourself, you lost in that illusion / Your two cents that’s the cost of solutions
And if you needed paper, I‘d give every cent to you / You my right hand but I sacrifice a limb for you / Fam forever, God knows / So here’s a pine cone with the Fibonacci spiral / Love in that, heart beat cuz it’s love in that / Build with the contract and chop it up with lumberjacks
FTO members have often described their connections as a brotherhood. "Family Tree" is a demonstration of both their foundation and their goals.
"Link the ground to the sky, and that's a 'Family Tree'."
