"This Is My Demo" as written by and Derek Andrew Safo....
Ladies and gentleman,
wellcome to the end of the beginning
My name is Sway, aka Little Derek
And right now, im about to take you, to the very beginning
Before the after
prior to the present
before the hype
before the magazines
before the buzz
and before the mix tape
back to the Blood, Sweat & Tears

growing up i had to much on my mind
so i needed a way to get, all of this crap out of my head
so i chose music

this is my beginning
this is my introduction
this is my dream
leasten very carefully
this is my demo

its da arrival of dcypha,live from dis london dunjon (underground)
dats where ive bin puttin it down for my people on the
north side (get up) east side (get up) west side (get up) south side (get up)
inside (ye) outside (get up)
dats wot im sayin ye? and for years dats how long i waited here
and im prepared back then people neva wanted to hear me tho
dats wen i had to shoot a lil video now im givin the album here we go
ever since i was a lil kid about 6 7 8 9 or 10 i always wanted to be bigga den big ben
but dreams can easily come to an end wen ur livin in the big l.o.n.d.o.n. the city dat never sleeps so how do we dream?
lil kids forced to think like men and the big smoke just gets u lean
to get a good start in life i took a run up insted of pikin a gun up
i piked up a pen and i shhot for the sky run up on the clouds
dats y i got 1 up on u clowns
now im becomin da talk of da town
jus yesta day i was walkin around
tryin to figure out how im gonna come up on the crown
now im in the middle when the gathering crowds are sayin:

(sway) the beggining is still in my memory
(sway) i was sittin in my chool assembely
(sway) never listen to wot da teachers tellin me
(sway)i was thinkin will i live to 70
(sway) and if i die will the world rememba me
(sway)whos my frends and hus my enimys
(sway)who will love and hu will envy me
(sway) now im redy for woteva is ment to be

i put my blood sweat and tears in this music, i will not fail
your lisenin to this is my demo

once upon a time in a place haringy lived this average african black kid tryin to get up in ths (industry)
flat 23 brook road he would practice rapping rappidly this rap emceehad a lot to say with a little time so he rapped quick
not to say he never had any frendsbut he neva had many never had a penny to acces the industry
05/09/82: flew back to the mother land where he grw flew back to the other land he was 2 english boy with an african accent
05/09/92: using the music rooms in his skl recording rythems then he rid em with riddles now hes an african boy wit an english accent
now hes 22 and ur lisenin to his first official lp debut
and i got the energy-eh
im not jus an n.i.g.-ger
im still hungry and im eager
and im more ready than ive ever been-er
because ive been persuading this thing from skl since commodore
atari and amiga
remember me sir? i aint in it to be number two
five albums dats wot im gunna do five albums then im dun then im through
the enimies-ahhh bite the dustthis is all before the hype, the buzz
this is all before the wife the lust and the lies the thugs with knives and guns
its entertainment for u but its life for us, its time to buss my niggas


left side islamic prayer
right side christian prayer

ive got angels on my nokia im out here and i got no fear
no foes or no phobias so all these plottin with the obeahs
and voodoo deres no hope for ya
hang urself i got rope for ya i said deres no hope for ya
hang ur self i got rope for ya
coz god would neva let the devil harm any g's
and when im in the dark read psalms 23
im tryin to good on the path for the beasts
a palce where the bad boys are the police
trapped in between the imman and the priest
and i cant see if im gonna be in the church with a cross around ma neck
or in a mosque witha quran and a palm full of beads
