about

Khaki Mustafa teams up with Diabolic for the "CORPORATE INTEREST EP"!

What do you get when you combine hardcore lyricism over slick beat production by S.E.P. and guest appearances by Diabolic and Sullee J?...

A four song extended play version of the hot new single "Corporate Interest" by Khaki Mustafa & Diabolic!

The track is a blunt message to the 1% of the corporate world that continue to get richer by using celebs to market products that add to the destruction of our society. Khaki Mustafa and Diabolic deliver this message raw and uncut with the promise that their music can never be exploited to market destructive products for corporate America at the expense of the regular people living paycheck to paycheck in our modern society.

The single "Corporate Interest" is accompanied by three more songs by Khaki Mustafa including an official remix of Corporate Interest (featuring Sullee J), and a catchy hustlers anthem called "Thats Whats Up". The EP is now available for download on itunes, amazon, cd baby and more!

Track Name: Thats Whats Up
So many rappers are selling you dreams/
About million dollar fantasies, and luxury things/

Go on get ya paper boy, that's what's up/
But Watch where it take ya, don't get trapped in cuffs/
Don't pay attention to the hataz, pass em up/
Thats whats up, yeah that's what's up/

Stayin on the grind, homie that's what's up/
Ya got Money on ya mind, stackin bucks/
Legit hustle ain't a crime, ya stats are up/
That's what's up, yeah that's what's up/

It's Friday night, just got paid from the 9 to 5/
We gotta get that paper, we all tryna survive/
Out to hit that caper, feelin fly in the ride/
Goin 90 on the 95 just feel alive/
Surprise! , I'm a hustle till I die/
Get it how i live it, flipping music on the side/
No distractions, I'm smashin, stackin, relaxin/
Beats blastin, like I'm in the streets trapping/
Laughing, wiling, wining and dining/
Without even tryin, I stay shining and Grindin/
Supplying and climbing, call it a crime/
Broke too fly, nah I hustle on mine/
I shine like light bulbs, smile in promos/
networking at shows, earning more dough/
Nothing's foretold, so grab them bucks/
I got that legit hustle, homie that's what's up/

Go on get ya paper boy, that's what's up/
But Watch where it take ya, don't get trapped in cuffs/
Don't pay attention to the hataz, pass em up/
Thats whats up, ya that's what's up/

Stayin on the grind, homie that's what's up/
Ya got Money on ya mind, stackin bucks/
Legit hustle ain't a crime, ya stats are up/
That's what's up, yeah that's what's up/

My boy used line us up when were lookin bummy/
He went to barber school now hes makin hella money/
Another brother of mine ex partner in crime/
learned how to repair cars on his spare time/
Now he's his own boss, callin shots feelin it/
About to open up his very first dealership/
This is the realist shit, true life stories/
too many people in a hurry, their realities are blurry/
Everyone want fast cash, like the dope man/
Thats why Im gettin mine, Grindin like slow jams/
Fast cash don't last is more than a slogan/
But scratch that, if cats can't get wit the program/
Set goals, focus, develop strategies and strike/
Get gold, invest, collect ya salary alright/
We gotta get it how we live it, long as digits hit double/
Grindin wit muscle, legit hustle/

Go on get ya paper boy, that's what's up/
But Watch where it take ya, don't get trapped in cuffs/
Don't pay attention to the hataz, pass em up/
Thats whats up, ya that's what's up/

Stayin on the grind, homie that's what's up/
Ya got Money on ya mind, stackin bucks/
Legit hustle ain't a crime, ya stats are up/
That's what's up, yeah that's what's up/
Track Name: Alone In The Darkness
Alone in the darkness, conscious regardless/
focused on targets, we are the artists/
I promise, this life that's upon us/
Will vanish, and leave the masses astonished/
Honest, the biggest threat to peace/ is atomics, And secretive deposits/
nuclear gossip, man made comets/
Yo, i pray we haven't lost it/
Darkness starts intolerance of knowledge/
While Part of us are starving oppressions not abolished/
dark, like the lights been tarnished/
Stark contrast at the sight of maryters/
Dark, Occupation, unjust process/
A large scale prison industrial complex/
Do they got bombs yet, they got arms bet/
All these thoughts is, alone in the darkness/

Hook
Alone in the darkness/
were its cold and oh so heartless/
Alone in the darkness/
Alone in the darkness/

They keep us trapped like incarceration/
I'm seeing all the darker nations/
Colonization, the darkness plagues them/
But wisdom is an important part of patience/
Complacence, allows the vultures/
To usurp our resources, rape our culture/
We're far from over, cuz the dark is colder/
Than the hearts of soldiers, bombin Gazas borders/
turn your shoulders, your blind eyes/
can't believe your own thoughts, the mind lies/
And time flies when your livin in a prison/
60 some years and still were resisting/
despite bein bothered by policies of slaughter/
I became a father now im raising a daughter/
Life's waters are deep, but we grow regardless/
These are my thoughts, alone in the darkness/

Alone in the darkness/
were its cold and oh so heartless/
Alone in the darkness/
Alone in the darkness/
