"The Living Rock… A godsend to some, a place of friendship to others, to me it is a place where I feel welcome and can, for a brief time, find solace and kindness from those who were kind enough to give their time and some things, though I would rather it not be needed, their hard earned money."

TRI-Rock Freestyle Rap

 

I want everyone to know what’s going on in their city

When you say nothing is pretty I beg to differ so give me

A chance to say what I got, when I stare at the block

I feel blessed that I got a chance to work at the Rock

I got a lot of supporters helping my way to the top

Yeah it taught me a lot,

like how to hold on to a job I know I’m I lucky I got

How can you say you took a chance but never gave it a shot?

You miss 100% of all the shots that you don’t take

TRI-Rock’s helping out in more than just one way

Just better not show late, opportunities don’t wait

I’m constantly on a mission won’t stop I got no breaks

Unstoppable show faith, impossible no way

Point you in the right direction when walking the wrong way

Stay strong on a long day

You should never have to say that there’s got to be no way

‘Cause tomorrow’s a new day (so there’s gotta be)..

 New ways

--

I can crank the heat in the kitchen to full blast till I sweat

You been sleeping but I’m thinking you should crack your eye lids

7 bills bi-weekly that’s what I get

I ain’t no baller but I’m still surviving

It’s survival of the fittest I got rent to pay

So I dedicate myself each and every day

‘Cause TRI-rock’s where it’s at I would never waste

Their efforts made to help keep my head on straight

‘Cause if I ever needed clothes on my back I know they got that

Ever needed food in stomach I know they got that

Ever need some light on a dark day they got that

Paying for my bus to get back to where my spot’s at

When life gets tough better prepare to change it

Truly this is amazing, truly an inspiration

Have you feeling free when you usually feel caged in

Yo… Are you picking up what I’m saying?
