Song Concept: This track explains how it all started for Nine Leaves.


This is how the Nine Leaves started
How five inspiring artists shined through from the darkness
It was Mamma Luce’s apartment like back in the days
Back when Chad was engaged
Aronic had braids
Zack was in the 10th grade
Before Isaac had changed
And me, fresh in my ways, rocked the fresh fade with waves
Then one day came the name and what the 9 represented
The four elements of hip-hop and the body’s five senses
That’s stupendous
The effect on us alone was tremendous
Only thing left to perfect it was the bestest way to end it
And so it came to be we be the leaves forever
As MC’s one for all
Grow and fall together
It’s all too clever
To come across clear however
Let me take you through the years that got us here together
First, Abe met Zack with the evident fusion
Then we made the track “Elements of Confusion”
The sixth man split man
We had to lose him
But he came back
Matter of fact, we’re new improved friends
Adrenaline, better know as Blue or Jen
We let her in, it was cool
She couldn’t choose her men
See Ike moved her in, then Abe moved her out
We break ties then “Snake Eyes” came about
No doubt
Our route to riches hasn’t been without glitches
We found the perfect prescription to persever past the sickness
These poetic pictures
We paint with musical notes and lyrical quotes
So you know from the very instant you hear it it’s dope
I hope you can use it
Become fiends and abuse it
It’s my pleasure to introduce this
It’s Nine Leaves music
