(Verse 1) Historically speakin’, I was competin’ with niggas in this rap game Five years ago... with my same flow A lot corny rappers too jealous to even know So I decided to part ways and now the Obvious remains Describin’ me is ratin’ me a 5 on a rap rubric Life stories I use it to express with this music The purpose of this art form is not just to make that green like your lawn But to create a hip hop bond I’m rather fond of my own sound... not soundin’ conceded But that’s just the way I’m gettin’ down From here and beyond... fuck the silver and the bronze I want the gold and that’s it... the Obvious is on some shit That’s probably what your sayin’ in the cut is where I’m always laying Makin’ these hot rhymes while these corny rappers is always playin’ My job is rap all day and everyday Just take a seat my nigga and stay the fuck up out my way (Hook) My story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC (Verse 2) A lot of these rhymes were created from pain New ways of doin’ things... I can’t do it the same I could tell you probably didn’t really plan your whole album You was probably pissed off high and free-stylin’ I got more rhymes in me and more shit to talk about A lot of stuff to help alleviate your doubt A clouded backdrop fills all your empty thoughts And makes you wanna hate on this fly shit I bought (Hook) My story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC Sometimes my story needs better clarity It's just another day you watchin' TV On MSNBC

about

Carta’ P. aka “The Obvious Wonder” who hails from the talent rich city of Mount Vernon, NY debuts with his full length solo album “A Beautiful Mess”.

In collaboration with french producer Parental, the two combine to mix melodic samples, strong baselines and infectious drums in conjunction with stories about women, relationships, life as an adult, money, children and family. The combination of Parental and Carta’ P. help produce a sound very similar to the 90’s “Golden Era of Hip Hop”.

The entire project was produced by Parental and written by Carta’ P. over the span of two years. The two musical juggernauts collaborated and recorded over twenty songs together. Throughout the project, you can hear the musical chemistry along with the development
of the album.

Carta’ P. is part of the hip hop underground group ADAGIO! from the mid to late 90’s. A lot of the same musical influences and lyrical creativity from ADAGIO! Can be heard through this latest collaboration.
