released February 7, 2012

A gritty 90's style album for those who grew up on Illmatic, Midnight Marauders, Only Built for Cuban Links, Moment of Truth, and Ready to Die. Behind The Scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. This is unfiltered, real sh*t on tape. Some of the stories are intensly personal and Sean second-guessed including them, but if it ain't raw it ain't real. Behind The Scale is about change, transition and growing up.

Track Name: Go Hard
Go hard
Facin sumpin evil/ got a closet full of mason jars filled wit diesel/
I'm all about the people /
leavin the perico in the 90's wit the RICO /
cuz my lil niggas tell me that it's pullin in the equal/
Nigga u don't want mine/ I been on the frontline/
Hotter than the sunshine/ duckin from the onetime/yeah... While u was workin on ur punchlines/ my whole squad we out side we go hard/
They past crazy got anything to prove/ they real dumb/ shoot anything that move/
Bring the heat out/ pussy queef ur teeth out/
U won't do shot cept lay on the ground and bleed out/
Bitch I'm a problem/ dare a nigga to solve him/
I will semi/sawed off or revolve them/
And We got plenty of anything u involved in/
But ima ghost/ got lil niggas so call them/

It's born baby I'm back/ back on that real shit/ I'm back g'in a pack trappin is real sick/
I'm back baby I'm back/ back on that ill shit/y'all rap niggas is wack/ rappin that bullshit/

Nigga youse a bitch if u brag how u handle folks/
U can get ur head, opened up like an envelope/
Nigga this the jungle/prey on weak like they antelope/
Halfa 1/4 of chem/ get u more than a gram of coke/
cousins did ten in the pen/ now they coming home/
To a different city/ different life than they used to know /
The 90's is dead/ who knows what the future holds/
was it all for not/depends on how the future goes /
I been at the bottom so long that the view is skewed/
prolly just the glass in the ceiling we viewin thru../
This deez got me leanin to the side / like I'm leanin in the ride/
Got crack under my nails/ son, I'm feenin to survive/
I'm back bitch , I'm back on this real shit/
Live amongst the young wild niggas who kill shit/
I told u that We keep it low/ and we know nufin but indo/
Mad cuz me and b blow chem in the benzo/

Track Name: Bullshit // feat. Hassaan Mackey

Niggas talkin big/But they always on bullshit...
Wouldn't clap a round/niggas empty a fullclip/
Play the background/ while I'm smokin on good shit/
I been all around/ niggas always on bullshit/

My cousin Nick in Europe tryna be a doctor/
While I'm stuck here doin dumb shit..
Ridin round with the gauge in my lap/
Quarter Ki and a quarter P of the sour D/
And that super sour haze in the back/
I ain't got the patience for rap/
I ain't got the patience for rap niggas/
Iont really wanna slap niggas/ iont really wanna clap niggas/ iont really wanna call them trap niggas to bring the plastic to wrap niggas/
Fat niggas ain't tryna b hungry again so/
U fuck me/ we comin after ur kinfolk/
Been broke bitch/ pen stroke rich/
Four-fifth make the floor flip/ make a nigga core drip/
I ain't for that court shit/ I got problems nigga iont need ur shit/ it's always more shit... niggas is fuckin wit ur money or them whores on that whore shit..
