Story

Jibaro Soul

Jibaro Soul is a gritty, yet intellectual, NO nonsense rhyme about life as seen through the eyes of Agueybana X! This is the 3rd single release and is featured in all versions of the The Warrior EP.

 

Agueybana X already had a lot of production experience from working with DJ Que-Stylez prior to his hiatus from the music scene starting in 2002; But actually producing the music himself and working with sample based production was an entirely new lane.

Jibaro Soul however is different than other songs featured in the Warrior EP; The intrumentation is keyed out using midi VST instruments and Agueybana X is playing out simple key progressions of various guitars to get this rustic type sound over a funky percussion set with salsa elements.

Jibaro Soul has become synonimous with the Agueybana X sound, being simple,soulful, beat-driven and thought provoking in the lyricismand wordplay. This version is mastered by BoTrackshack.

Lyrics

Jibaro Soul

Yeah, New for the 215, Jibaro Soul

 

This how my story goes, look into the depths of my soul

inner connected but I'm feeling like I'm losing control

this inner rage burns, every day I learn to contain it

this world picture we painted, feels like all the good is tainted

maybe these words I rap is just for me to explain it

imagine that... these old cats coming to claim it

cause its only entertainment, that's how they sell it to shame us

hoping that we make it famous and the money would tame us

so why we slaving for these fiends, who act like they made us

and play the victim for the state apparatus, asking why God hate us?

living the struggle, sounding cliché and outdated

the simplest of words, paraded profound and innovative

I only wonder how much longer I can take it

this inner rage is growing stronger and stronger, I get impatient

but keep calm, hope I never get complacent

represent the red path and try to fight the temptation to stray

from my word, these days its seems absurd but face it

I may be ancient but I'm straight with the lyric arrangement

 

This Jibaro Soul flowing deep inside of me

gotta be from God on high, so lemme try to be

wise to the roots, and build truth with the words that I'm saying

that how I'm living everyday in everyway and yo!

This Jibaro Soul flowing deep inside of me

gotta be from God on high, so lemme try to be

wise to the roots, and build truth with the words that I'm saying

that how I'm living everyday in everyway...

 

I bear my soul on paper, and let the rhythm take control of my nature

I paint a different sort of picture, but I'm with ya

Like an epiphany in how these words I speak will hit ya

its so profound in how the situation seems to fit ya

I stand calm, keep the serene and try to live out my dreams

it seems I fall into the schemes of fiends

and doing things, still coming short of the cream

and, now, I simply wonder what the next day will bring

and how, I keep it together and weather the storm ahead

I gets no love, people judge me by words that I said

its hard as hell to keep these negative thoughts out of my head

and take account for the blood, sweat, tears that I shed

it seems irrelevant, can't tell if its ever gonna change for the better

And these days its now or never

so I pray, and stay humble and grounded

on this red path I founded, with the spirit of warriors around it

 

This Jibaro Soul flowing deep inside of me

gotta be from God on high, so lemme try to be

wise to the roots, and build truth with the words that I'm saying

that how I'm living everyday in everyway and yo!

This Jibaro Soul flowing deep inside of me

gotta be from God on high, so lemme try to be

wise to the roots, and build truth with the words that I'm saying

that how I'm living everyday in everyway...

 

Yeah, That jibaro stylee, new for the 215. God bless ya'll, and I'm out...

Peace!
