all i got is this here beat they say my vocals is unique still i travel by feet meek livin' in a tent but keepin' positive works logical perps and specs while i'm breaking my neck 'cause cold ground was my bed last night a gold crown on my head last night killer sound speakers bled last night we do the works 'till you scream that's tight whether studio stage or street corners with no amp'd up mics i fight critics with their love for hate shit you might feel indifferent still i'm sharing my plate it's all love like a sexual bait they keep bitin' at it creative habbits got me writing words with automatik let's start the static the krackel the pop the boom back pockets is inside out until i make 'em clap you know the burnt crew is outta the norm smoke a spliff do the works and we movin' on, yo... sometimes it's no thought just feelin' let the blood flow let the mind... relax and gently flow yes so calmly as the breeze i know plant a seed watch it grow i'm on my spiritual quest and never rest 'till i get my soul blessed to highest remain a star life the trinity is what we are the sun the moon and stars fire have fe burn yes i know i-tinually them fe learn i and i i and i... sometimes it no thought just feelin' when i'm moshin' in the pit the crowd surfin' hit the celing and i strive to bring the blazin' irie vibe that's so appealing so let the music touch your soul because you know it's healing we are an army and so far we're hardly armed with armor so we're gonna start another march in front of wal-mart cause we're starving for equal rights and justice so i must bust these rusty cuffs 'cause the shackles in my mind only keepin' me behind from reachin' up into the most heights devine if i open up my spirit and let you suckas hear it nothing is the way that it appears so fuck appearance that's the reason why i try to use my rhyme to fight ignorace so sit your ass up in the back and let the fearless steer shit as we approach the coast on the horizon shine i and i most high, seen.

tiny weatherd craft beaten by waves taking on water with each passing day blistered by sun broke but not done my soul is my boat afloat everything born must die watch as each and every day sccumb to night the longest drought does end in flood to get some life you must risk blood for every high there is a low fate will find you wherever you go i know i and i know it's so easy remain complexive comprehend balance for your own objective life living well do something respected i know how you feelin' when shit's depressing down-pressor boy wanna take your blessings and all you got is self and your already stressin' but who jah bless walk in his protection down with every breat for the holy connection the irony of it how we love addiction soft touches borderline heat of friction raised on skeptics and superstition but still aiming high to evoke the mission extension exertion my exposition giving you cowards life through your darkend vision afloat 'till you crash like a quake collision you wake up and rise with a clever decision.

about

Our third album is an eclectic mash-up of styles-- from hip hop to roots reggae; from dancehall to dub; from electronica to raw punk-- start to finish Tortillas is a journey through the underground of California's sonic landscape. This album features original beats produced by IntoCognition and Mikey Cannon (formerly of the B-Side Players), as well as searing vocals from MC Karmic Basis, dancing keys from Ryan Tomizan of the Debonaires and more!

The core of BURNT for the Tortillas sessions consisted of Rob LaPorte (Drums, Percussion), Kathik Suresh (Bass), Joe Ransom (Lead Guitar, Bass) and Danny Franco (Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Bass)

The bulk of the music for Tortillas was recorded at Stems and Seeds Studio B in San Diego. An old store front on 30th Street in North Park, which served as both the living and working space for the band, is featured on the back cover.
