about

Hip-Hop Artist and Graphic Novelist P.SO the Earth Tone King brings his debut album The Gateway to Greatness. Nearly two years in the making, The Gateway to Greatness is P.SO’s otherworldly album & graphic novel combo designed to give fans a completely original experience. Aiming to deliver a substantial contribution to the culture, The Gateway to Greatness includes such standout tracks as the popular “Find Out”, the self-produced, hard-hitting “ Black Holes”, the airy, ethereal “Floating” featuring Denitia Odigie and the instant classic "Back Again" featuring Outasight. That graphic novel P.SO speaks of is the 45-page collaboration with talented illustrator Anwar Morse that coincides with the tracks on the album. The first chapter will be available in the digital booklet of The Gateway to Greatness.

"Overall, "The Gateway to Greatness" is a polished body of work from start to finish. By putting together diverse ideas and concepts into one cohesive album, P.So the Earth Tone King manages to offer his whole identity without compromising it or turning to cliches. If there was ever an album to serve as an example for the benefits of taking time to craft music that will stand the test of time, this is it."- RefinedHype(dot)com

"P.SO the Earth Tone King is an artist who has his stuff together. From the moment I pressed play on his album, Gateway To Greatness, I knew I was listening to an emcee who has the total package. P.SO has a fresh sound merging organic live instrumentation and electronic music, and a unique futuristic style gleaning from his skills as a graphic novelist. It’s rare to have an artist so grounded in abstract cool and everyday man charm, but P.SO pulls it off."-Imadeintruth(dot)com

Track Name: Find Out ft. Andrew Reid
I wouldn't doubt you
Got my hands all over your blouse boo
Now every love song I write is about you
you out-do
most women chilling in House shoes
It's kinda cold when I'm living without you
I wrap my soul and the rhythm around you
You top jewel
Some got a blemish but not you
I found you
funny like riddles by Doc. Seuss
You bless me (ahchoo!)
Queen I crown you
sit on my couch boo
if you wanna let loose I wouldn't stop you
There's a lot of things that I wanna cop you
All the money in the world couldn't amount to-
You
Getting over you that's doubtful
Don't want a taste baby I want a mouthful
Being without you well..
That is impossible
Deep in my flames shorty I must douse you
And I'm about to

Find Out
You're gonna Find Out
Find Out
You're gonna Find Out

Her whole style is simply sick
She's not a trendy chick
She likes Thai food and Indie flicks
I won't lie boo you get me bent
throwing hissy fits
over politics in crispy kicks
I might follow you if this is it
we hot Cajun
so Blazing
half woman-half amazing
stop playing
I like'em Asian, Jamaican,
as well as brown, yellow, Puerto Rican and Haitian
So cool you listen to Hip-Hop
And diss pop
style so Fresh they should put you in zip lock
You get love, these other chicks not
In this spot,
I'm seeing lots of "Birds" like Alfred Hitchcock
Speaking lots of words got you laughing, it's not
the same without your passion
Lips lock
tight like slipknot
we spend a lot of time
Tick, tick, tock
Looks like I need a new wrist watch
"Exit the gift shop"

Find Out
You're gonna Find Out
Find Out
You're gonna Find Out

You remind me of Bonita
Ms. Applebum having fun when I meet her
she likes that I give her respect like Aretha
Frankly I'm crazy and can't wait to see her
My face is so hazy, babe I'm just a dreamer
You take the harshest critic and you make'em a believer
You're not a diva you're more like Serena mixed
with Latifah mixed with Alicia
Walk on this grass
It ain't getting any greener
Forget about the past we on to the next feature,
Future
Gimme those ten digits to reach ya!
A hit of cologne when I'm fixing to meet ya
Kansas, Topeka, Atlanta, Antigua
we travel to beaches
Yes I like to freak ya
Spicy, Paprika
You say, Eureka!
Can I get a drop of love or can I get a liter?
High top sneakers while she dancing near the Speakers
I need her

Find Out
You're gonna Find Out
Find Out
You're gonna Find Out

(put a L air in the love x8)

Find Out
You're gonna Find Out
Find Out
You're gonna Find Out x2
Track Name: Poppyseed
Nice with the rhymes though I haven't hit my prime yo
grind slow
before the fat lady hit the high note
I'm dope
Opium, heroin POPPYSEED
You don't need the latest drugs,
you can just copy P. SO
you can just copy P. SO
you can just copy P. SO

We bleed all the same
I never be shook a you
Nocturnal Animal
caged in a Brooklyn zoo
City cesspool, Darkness kiddie screams
fun house mirror shit,
nothing what it really seems
dazed how the moonlights
shine off of shorty eyes
even more dazed when she pull the chrome .45
damn-
even skirts sticking ni**** now
staring at her high heels
then he heard the trigger ((blow)) x 2

Welcome to the Gentrified Enterprise
re-fried East side America
home of where the Beast Hides
we work like bees in a beehive
they try to hold us down in this town but we rise
Organized crime
Genovese
demons are the enemies
crawling like they centipedes
Don't matter if you baggy or skinny jean
feet on the bright path MJ Billie Jean

keep yo feet on the bright path, MJ Billie Jean

Nice with the rhymes though I haven't hit my prime yo
grind slow
before the fat lady hit the high note
I'm dope
Opium, heroin POPPYSEED
You don't need the latest drugs,
you can just copy P. SO
you can just copy P. SO

unh..
Blo City to Jamaica Queens
girlies strut and shake they thing
anything to make a scene
and shorties look amazing in latest Jeans
maybe she was born with it or maybe its the Maybeline
the cops seem deranged when they raid the scene
breakup dreams cut off any way for you to make some cream
Police futuristic, make em mean
they dont even taze you, the blaze you with lazer beams
(break)

The Dark and the Light, God this is life and my breaks don't work
how can i stop at this light?
fog blocking my sight
I am so focused like a fiend bout to smoke the last rock in his pipe
G'night....
go to sleep, Nyquil
your world goes dark like you didn't pay your light bill I feel
I can tap dance through a mine field
If you live a false life chance are you die real

Nice with the rhymes though I haven't hit my prime yo
grind slow
before the fat lady hit the high note
I'm dope
Opium, heroin POPPYSEED
You don't need the latest drugs,
you can just copy P. SO
you can just copy P. SO
you can just copy P. SO
Track Name: So Enormous
Accelerate faster then Porsches
300 horses of course start a mosh pit
Metamorphosis to a tyrannosaurus
Flow nauseous don't need a Thesaurus
Glorious
Whole audience full a warriors , Adore us
Soldiers repeating my Chorus
Flawless,

Whole Aura simply gorgeous
U bore us u couldn't do anything for us

I'm so enormous x 2
U shoulda warned em
They can't ignore us
We are the warriors

I'm so enormous x2
U shoulda warned em
They can't ignore us
just record this

You a liar right?
You don't peddle china white
Wear designer ice
You resemble the vagina type
I'm dynamite
You bout as light as a diet Sprite
You ain't fly as I
Betta yet child go fly a kite
Or lie in spite,
I'm nice on the mic device
I got Tiger stripes
Plus I'm sharp as diamond spike
I'm a fight till the lights get bright
The hype gets right
Take a hike good night

(HOOK)

Infinity and beyond
You a peeon
I'm a supehuman being
And we are eons beyond
Everything you speak on
Please dream on
I'm the nigga that you sleep on
Total Recall
Three tits
On a butter pecan
Puerto Rican
Get our freak on.
All week long
Then we Cheech Chong
On a mean bong
Chief long
Till the green lawn has a deep fog
Peace dog

(HOOK)

Time, time, time for some action
What happened to the love
What happened to the passion?
Re-laxin we seeking the cash and please advance
The new and uniquest fashions
Flame burning you into ashes
So when us speak of P.SO You speak of the dragon--
-Every action there's a reaction
Writing classics Like John Lennon, imagine

(HOOK)

Track Name: Floating Ft. Denitia Odigie
P.SO:
My brain deranged got me thinking crazy things
Like if I change all the players I can change the game
Free thought and Meditation do amazing things
Jumped off a cliff and levitated like I'm David Blaine
floating like a dead leaf in autumn wind
I'm floating like a Dead sea offering
My ancestors slaves and they caught em in
Floating like our dreams
And the slave ships they brought us in
Feel sick self medicate
Levitate like Dr. Strange when he meditates
I'm lighter then the air, I'm a featherweight
Let me demonstrate...
I can see the sky getting paler
I see my dreams, My successes, my failures
I turn on Bob Marley and the Wailers
Never failing,I'm scaling

Denitia:
I'm Floating, yes I'm Floating
Floating through the air
I'm Floating, yes I'm Floating
Floating through the air

You left me all alone up here
I guess I'm a dreamer
I see it in your face the way you really feel
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Don't get me wrong
I been tied up
I was lost, now I'm not
Now I'm just floating
Now I'm just floating
Now I'm
Now I'm just...

P.SO:
My path is locked I used to be the laughing stock
Now I'm bout to fly this spaceship After Spock
Now watch him blast off feel the Aftershock
Crash the spot
where I'm High-fiving all the astronauts
I'm so thankful for the time we spent
You can see it written down in the rhyme he left
In the clouds softly
in the night he slept
Up here, every single person is a tiny speck

Denitia:
I'm Floating, yes I'm Floating
Floating through the air
I'm Floating, yes I'm Floating
Floating through the air
