Thelonious Sphere Monk (, October 10, 1917 – February 17, 1982) was an American jazz pianist and composer. He had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the standard jazz repertoire, including "'Round Midnight", "Blue Monk", "Straight, No Chaser", "Ruby, My Dear", "In Walked Bud", and "Well, You Needn't". Monk is the second-most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington.Monk's compositions and improvisations feature dissonances and angular melodic twists and are consistent with his unorthodox approach to the piano, which combined a highly percussive attack with abrupt, dramatic use of switched key releases, silences, and hesitations. Monk's distinct look included suits, hats, and sunglasses. He also had an idiosyncratic habit duri… more »

Young nigga behold, the challenge of a day-to-day basis
Cover the pitcher mound and we loaded all of our bases
Surrounded by strange faces familiar with the struggle
Every creature in existence is not built for the jungle
A story to be told about this young man's soul
They say the stress alone can turn a young man old
With direction nowhere to go like his life is in limbo
Taking a few punches like a Slice of that Kimbo
What else you need to know, He loves being alone
He never knows the whereabouts of his phone
They call, complain and moan, and defiantly groan
But the young'n is like a zombie in it's quarantine zone
And he got all the talent in the world to succeed
But he was taught that if you fail utilize Plan B
A fellow millennial told him that you got a shelf life
When you try to rap for living thee day becomes night
His mother and father tell him rely on his degree
But he's rejecting corporate America for his artistry
Listen to his theme song, in only God he trusts
Soul searching through his Wanderlust he's so lost

Every morning awaken, he go to work for his daughter
Had insurance to cover, money aside for the college
Calculate all the mileage of a delivery driver
But he's grateful because he knows that his baby is a survivor
Trying to make amends and rebuild with his baby's mother
Through trials and tribulations don't call her no baby mother
Derogatory term in his ear
She don't believe in the relationship they battle the whole calendar year
Low key, he played his position off the radar
But she believes the world doesn't really know just what they are
There's a key in the door he invited some people in
The people she wanted out, are they enemies or a friend
She's under-appreciated, he's over-dehydrated
The water of life between the two is evaporating
So listen to his theme song, in only God he trusts
Soul searching through his Wanderlust he's so lost

Keeping the family together as planned
Tryna balance his destination as long as his mother is in his caravan
The only child that's lucky to be alive
So imagine separation anxiety from his side
Trying to build a career preserve his family tree
Paying homage to the gods with the blood on the leaves
Why break the connection his relatives well protected
With the blessing of the Lord Smith & Wesson but regret
Within his heart, he witness his own father's addiction
Watch him chasing a ghost, with the coke it's only a sickness
Watch him choke on a rope with some dope with the chair kicking
The city took over the home that he's known victim evicted
Now he's sober but his only son is drunk with an answer
To question the diagnosis of his grandfather's Cancer
Listen to his theme song, in only God he trusts
Soul searching through his Wanderlust he's so lost
