Story

Seven Directional God

Seven Directional God is an ode to old school battle bars and quick witted punchlines. While what an MC said was important, in those days people also paid attention to how it was being said. Agueybana X returned to his abstract eccentric wordplay in this feature which appears 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.

Seven Directional God is a classic "War Drums" style using thick melodic kicks with energetic salsa brass and drum accompaniments to build intensity. This was also unique in the sense that the production utilized latin swing arrrangements of hihats before even resorting to the MPC swing feature found in the software.

The result is a funky Hip Hop salsa fusion with great intensity perfect for introducing the world to an artist that takes what he does very serious. Seven Directional God is an evolution of production techniques for Agueybana X and would influence every thing he has done since.

Lyrics

Seven Directional God

 

Yeah sounds like my man went back to the motherland on this one

Its all natural, its like breathing

Yeah, Hip Hop to the fullest extent

Mr Ward, Agueybana X, going in

Hold tight, strap in

 

Cause I'm that Ill Philosophic, and I'll spit subliminally caustic

Raw shit for these cats who thought I lost it

Still classic with these rap hits

Speak the weight of gold bars, you still paying off plastic

Upon the blast, the moment I'm getting into ya

Venomous, ominous, I mean theres nothing quite simular

Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center

You gotta rise to my cause, I'm still better than ever

Whether or not you believe is ilrelevent

The verbal architect coming correct with intelligence

And elements of my game remain salient

The elegance of name, is just another way of telling it

I'm Cruz-defined, now who's the mind, the lyrical

Spiritual monolithic manifested physical

I'm blessed, obvious, can't you see?

I'm still shitting on MCs as proof of my divinity

 

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

 

It's kopestic how we said it, we dead it, this whole wax poetic

Dropping bars like the ancient vedics, we shred it and meant it

Ya'll know, its the A.X. coming through, and you dont know what to do

Looking at me like you confused

I spit truth on ya, its hard to copy

The chaos I cause like Fibonacci, I get raw

And its the damndest thing ya'll ever saw

Dropping science like the Final Call, pride comes before the fall

For all you wanna be ballas and rap dons

Time to bring that street fighter like CAPCOM

And bring that motherfuckin ruckus like the Wu

And I got attitude, the A. X. is doing what I have to do

Spitting jewels since 86, this my Hip Hop fix

The rhyme architect on some street bullshit

I'm vexed, cause theres like nothing else to do

Yo, I blessed this booth and the rest is left in destitude

 

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)

(Seven Directional God, I'm still centered to center)
