about

Oso Negro (Ontario, OR/Boise) presents the free, not for profit online release of The Doze Project EP, produced by Doze (Sioux Falls, SD). Each beat is sampled and sequenced from one particular Doors song, and then coupled with original lyrics. In general, Oso takes the original theme from the Doors song, and puts his own twist on it. Some lo fi fun with high flying concepts and delivery.

Oso Negro may now be an integral part of the Northwest hip-hop scene, but before his interest in the genre solidified during the golden-age of the early nineties, he was a huge Doors head. After hearing Doze release a string of mash-ups, Oso contacted him about making beats using Doors songs, for which original lyrics would be written. Doze agreed and began to crank out a dozen beats, exluding songs already sampled regularly in the past (LA Woman, The End, 5 to 1, Riders on the Storm, etc.). With great honor, Oso embarked on integrating his world view with flashes of the music he relied on so heavily as a youth, while working to respect the original context in which the Doors were created and existed.

01 "Good Together (Intro)" (sourced from "We Could Be So Good Together") - carnivalesque head nodder sets the mood & soundscape.

02 "U.S. 2.0" (sourced from "Unknown Soldier") - addressing drone warfare and domestic surveillance.

03 "Vilde Khaye" (sourced from "Wild Child") - a little bit of origin story, a little bit of observation & critique of "the scene."

04 "Permanent Fix" (sourced from "Unhappy Girl") - we all know that we are our own worst enemy.

05 "Big Reveal" (sourced from "Wild Child") - a 6/4 rhythm accompanies this diatribe on art and democide.

06 "End of Dream" (sourced from "Yes The River Knows") - a 5/4 rhythm supports this pondering of nature and life.

07 "Icy Refreshers" (sourced from "Alabama Song") - let's hit the bar and be a little misanthropic, shall we?

-fade away from fake-ass persons -i can see the way they're workin
-i concede my way ain't perfect -i can keep from the craze of the world/ if i
stay with my girl, part ways from my girl, 8 daze from my girl, then i've made the circuit
-that's called the touring life, -for those who're poor in scrilla/ and
can't afford to hit the road, -just keep it pure GORILLA
-i see you seeing the scene in a singular light/ but gotta
surPASS, the grass is greener, beat that chest and keep on fightin
wasted wasting time, tastin grime and grit, finding it
frusTRATing patiently watching the sloppy gettin stage time while
miming spits, combinin trips with legendary artists,
fallacY, reality is they just chauffer, don't go for their
scarlet carpet marketing, i'm~part~of~the~scene, impart~what~i've seen/
imPARtial's~the~thing, not a room full of yes men, to doom your destined, no MF reference
'xcept to the mf's who never pay deference~but always demand, that their name gets mentioned

---------- a fuckin buzzsaw,
see o wheelin round at the speed of sound, as i cut all the
particle~board artists i abhor who whore the hardest spittin

marginal and fronting that they're positive, but on the grift and
heartless~dark~in~the~cardiac, turn off the news, then spark my sack

-more faith, less maps -more grace in craft
exISting in the slipstream. i'll set the pace,~while ~y'all wait in drafts
Track Name: Permanent Fix
-you won't get me -you won't tempt me, see i know all of your tricks by
now -soul empty, -rogue entity, no permanent fix i've
found -so i separate, -observe my state, and try to keep my fists tied
down,~throwin up roadblocks? gonna~get~ya~coldcocked, devil holds thoughts shove~him~out -then~get~the~door~
locked/~and~he's already knockin -at any moment he could barge in- but who's in charge when the
situation goes beyond the margin? i are him, so smart when he pushes every button perfect
LY and dead-centers on his target, with a hard hit, my reactions makes it worth it
-first dip in a pool of rage, i was a fool to stray, i'm always WITH me, never~can just
move away, i gotta prove my ways, or i just lose the game, so i re-cu-pe-rate
re-coup weight, regroup my faith, reusing waste, refusing bait
standing strong,~vigilant~along~the~border, hands folded in arms, a little bit of order
-here we GO THEN,~boil hemoGLOBIN, -sim, simmer, & bring back the FRO-ZEN
-here we GO THEN,~boil hemoGLOBIN, -sim, simmer, & bring back the FRO-ZEN
--not gonna happen, see i'm tapped in, to all you've been trapped in
-simply the action of a batch made human cascade, of chemical
reactions, now THAT's sin? no. it's a science i'm exact in. the
laws of attraction should a put a pause in traction. flawed, and it's wack shit
-i retract it, black it out redact it, we all know for "every little," there's a reaction
livin maxims that survive time's fashions,~in-struct~from~back~then,~to victory in batt-lins
-if unable, the onset is imminent,- just tryna keep it semi-stable and deliberate
livid, still approach the most high with a civil head, limited, and that pill, i find, is the bitterest
-here we GO THEN,~boil hemoGLOBIN, -sim, simmer, & bring back the FRO-ZEN
-here we GO THEN,~boil hemoGLOBIN, -sim, simmer, & bring back the FRO-ZEN
--oSO ain't so zen, fellas, one stroke with the pen of
wellness, -more human and less android, con-sumin canna
banned-banned-banned-banned-banned-banned-banned
HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO, HERE WE GO

Track Name: Big Reveal
they say that
michelangelo would handle~the~stone, chistle all
day, reveal~the~tangible hidden away/ envisioned~
the~bones --maybe a mandible,phalange~or~two
sometimes a man sprung forth, sometimes~an~animal,
come to find in music i can use this as a suitable
manual, listen to the doze beat, zone out,
-allow the plan to show, that's how the jam unfolds
proof hints at blueprints written in a man's own
soul, that's why you can't console victims of the cannibals
bitten by these famished trolls who spit it back mechanical and
splurge in perversions, always grippin with that sandwich hold
bread around everything, and convert worth to a canned good
sold, i pan for gold in the current with my ankles cold
standing in a rankled pose, mouth branded full of canker sores
handed lores of mannish lords who brandished swords and ran towards
the panicked shores protecting their possessions from these spanish hoards
-but i connect with the victims, love upsetting
deCISions of calm~collected officials who're pawns advancin the
shytstem of ponzi schemes and the schisms, cast upon all we
children of disHONestly written laws nazis all would've
jizzed on-pardon my french but it's germane in this situation, who
truly won the war, i guess that's all that i'm really saying? y'all
claim it's history~stranglin,~my take is it's misery~danglin,
high at risk, agents of the IRS physically handling
--exact~same~arms they~tryin~to limit~and~ban~from~us. WHAT
-corrupt the sliver. -debase the currency.
-instruct your brilliant net-works to race in front of me
-they know i'm out to get them - they tout the algorithm
-it's all about decisions -before i even reach em
-it's all about intention, -it's all about detention
-it's all about to happen or not, -all that i mention
-it's all about the rappin is it or hot or is it wretched
-it's all about the trap and pop and visible reflections
-dirigibles detecting, the chillin E-ffect mastered
-the rigid get to bending NEVER FULLY Erect after
-and i can sense the laughter -so~i~test~the ridicule
-i also hear some praise and "dude, that shit is really cool"
-but it don't ever matter, -won't fight a song's direction
back to the analogy, this artist makes but one selection
tracks sound, marble, canvas treatment, any medium
beYOND that, i'm hollow or the universe is feedin in
---and~i'm bleeding it, and~i'm bleedin it
Track Name: End of Dream
LYRICS:
hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring
cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring
hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring
cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring
-out in the desert the variety's surprising. RISING
from the desolate earth, a live scene is thriving I'VE SEEN
everything from mountain lion tracks right beside streams, TO WRITHING
earthworms workin the dirt, nature's plow providing. MY THING's
settling down to float~while soakin in environments, TIRE TREADS/
-from A-T-V's trace deep lines around these fire pits, WIRE THIN
branches handle modern dinosaurs, who climb and soar, --my MINDS UP FOR
any creature nature decides that can~be featured toDAY~FOR THESE~EYES--
speak to the skies, keep it disguised, -solo and SILENT,
-now diamonds shinin, fiery hides behind horizon, while I AM
imMERsed in life's molecules, joinin multiverses in my SOLITUDE
echos of intentions, bounce back and sound grand, as they FOLLOW THROUGH
hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring
cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring
hot time, summer under falls in a cold spring
cold times, winter at the center of a hot spring
-out in the desert the diversity is startling, STARTING
with a preservation of life among the starving, MARS GLEAMS
over reservations and tribes, on the margin, CLAW-ING
at a way of life representin star beings with CAR-VINGS
i can see the terraformed bell jar surrounding, ASTOUNDING
-stone~satellite exactly orbiting about~these~flesh GROUNDLINGS
who have elevated fellow man to a status of BOUNDARY
to be overcome, instead of trusted, discovered, and BOUND WITH
end of dream- let's dematerialize and ride the entropy,
end of dream- let's dematerialize and ride the entropy
end of dream--------------ride the entropy
Track Name: Icy Refreshers
-an empty vessel, hardly exempt from life's
stressors, --so~the~bar's where i head, icy
reFRESHers, -imbibed for a respite from
pressures -usually self-impossssed but what
ever, cup to head works, so i'm sticking to my schedule,
tasks complete, get full, grab some eats, then let's
pull some draughts, bit of jae-ger, --wait for the alchemy
need to catch my breath, resuscitated by some mouth to weed
love the taste of stouts but need to stick to the headier brews
if you're an alcoholic, suggest stayin~ a~step ahead~of~your~moves, cause
y'all can be dangerous, liver and kidney's inflamed but let's
keep on steeping and we'll be delivered by the liquor that's slaving us
-little slip shoulda been savin us, sometimes when i'm
faded i just say shit, don't make a fuss, take it, don't
hate or judge, rePLACE the screwface with a screwdriver
claw my way back onto my barstool, a true social climber
let the hours pass sippin on that sour mash, now you're drinkin w/ the O S [O]
see me go, step, reappear with dro breath, now we're thinkin like the O S [O]
yammerin with hammered thin cacklers nothing's as
attractive as words slurred by chicken-head disturbed birds, not
really, got scary, dudes stoopin to rufies and molly's to
pop cherries cause they're useless and too stupid to jock
earings drop a compliment or talk, instead. really. -stop
staring with an awful swag comparing what you got cause you're
-not nearly as hot as this shot of teQUIla and
taBASaco, true some chicks, only feelin on the assholes
proFESsional proctologist prescription, just swallow it
personalities of cocktail stirrers, just a hollow stick
can't forget about the mickey d straw tricks, the same but
y'all are thick, buyin dudes beer goggles, but at least y'all
acknowledge it
starin down black ales, hearin all your sad tales, now you're drinking w/ the O S [O]
-dab hit my favorite, cat piss fragrance, now we're thinking like the O S [O]
hmph, how you LIKE this?~homie was supposed to meet me but
burned his face taking knife hits. another night amiss
time to right this ship, but first about to burst, gotta take a
righteous piss, not the most enlightened spits, but pleez believe i'm
fightin-this procession towards indiscretion, gulps are now just
light sips, messin with just headin~to~where~i might a
burRITO or shawarma, get my card back over~the~counter, sign the
tab, find a cab....preserve what little honor i
have
-over worked the turkey, details kinda murky, now you're drinkin w/ the O S [O]
-take a fast trip to blast a little bat hit, now we're thinkin like the O S [O]
-sat~down beside her and ordered up a cider, now you're drinkin w/ the O S [O]
-slid out the back door to hit a bowl i packed before, now we're thinkin like the O S [O]
