9 to 5 by Language Arts Crew

"Caught in the idiot race. Lost in the infinite days."

Artwork for I Shot the Shepherd

I ran into Language Arts Crew a couple years back, and wanted to give them credit for a few of their songs that’ve stuck with me over the years.

9 to 5, being one of them, first caught my attention when I heard it sample a few classic movies lines from Office Space and American Beauty (good Marketing technique!). It has some talented rhyming by the four MC’s of the group and one featured artist, X.I. I would try to type out the lyrics for you to follow along to (since there isn’t any online), but I’m too lazy and it’s too complicated (i’ve tried, it’s not easy). Anyways, give it a listen and tell me what ya think… then maybe i’ll feature some more of their finest!

By the way, the best part of the song is at 2:01 for both it’s rhyming and lyrical ability.

I’d also like to celebrate because this is my 50th post! :D
