Download: Flight Distance - All Crushed Under The Same Terrible Wheel
Now that's how you name a song. There is (believe it or not) more to this song than just a nice title. Flight Distance is a group that's probably most recognised for the fact that one of it's members is current KOTD champ and multisyallable extraordinaire, Bender. Patience, the groups other MC, is no slouch either though as is clear from this track.
Sullen and sluggish, 'nuff of us suffered a troubled history
but muster some love to crumble up brother, come bun it with me
now, them snipers never catch the whites in my eyes
staying bloodshot from the bends, holdin' a nitrogen high
a knife in my side, spent my februarys in a slump
respected as writer, legendary as a drunk
Saids it all really. 'Gritty' and 'raw' are (extremely) overused descriptors when it comes to describing Hip-Hop but they apply to this track so well it's hard not use them.
