Scar'D For Life is a song about people going after their dreams and never taking no for an answer. From becoming a world renowned Hip Hop star to just making good money at your job.The struggle is an obstacle that many of us go through and tend to give up easily on overcoming it.Like Biggie Smalls said.."It WAS a lll a dream.." Hence the word WAS. You really have to go after what you want in life because only you can get you there.
Scar'D For Life is more than just my slogan. Its an EXPERIENCE I try to leave people with; a mark. You listen to J.Scar and you won't ever forget.

Lyrics for Scar'D For Life
Rough times through these days make me wanna blow up the sun and be blind through my weak days
Easing the pain with my eyes shut, bumpin to Bob Marley at Utica Ave on the 4 train
"Could you be loved and be loved" while you're jammed packed in tryna make it on time to that mini-wage
Passed up for promos and raises and gettin gazes from the phony friends with the many faces
Waitin' for the opp like that side ways cop tryna purge your soul into the places with cases
X said "Its Dark and Hell is really hot" so you gotta make the move so you cool it to the top
And come up with a plot
To give it all you got
You better be prepped when this war gets real cuz their ain't no troops on this solo deal
Chase these dreams every night I sleep
I can't stop now cuz I'm in too deep
Round and round these tracks I flow
So you see me on the wave, then you know I gotta go
Black man, white man get out my face
See it ain't about race cuz I gotta win the race
Here these words pierce through your life
And get caught by the edge and get Scar'D For Life
Lost my little cuz to the streets but he's still alive inside cuz that Henny makes his heart beat
That brown juice, best served neat, got some dudes on the street talkin loose and they feel it's the truth
Till the crews come around, then you're watching the news
Young honor roll student dies, something to prove
Two shots to the head, two shots in the head, now we're going viral 10 million views
World Star Hip Hop, Huffington News
I don't follow any cuz I stay in the news
Occupy Wallstreet, Local 1-2
I used to work for jobs till I made the Daily News
Iphone tech, rapper 'Underpaid'
rumors even had it, I got my friends a raise
Lemme make it clear, don't believe the hype
But the thoughts that I thought, are now coming to light
So I'm dancin on the moon, tryna make a leap for mankind, cuz man aint kind no more, closed doors, no keys, Oh please, you can't stop me, J.Scar baby i'm movin with ease
From the bottom, to the top
No guts, No glory
No pain, change
No game, no gain
So I'm shootin prayers up to the lord like free throws, I can't miss or its good bye in this game...
No! I just got in the game, I aint starvin for fame
But its part of this 3 course meal
I'll embrace when I feel
To the crowds I appeal
With these beats that they feel
And my songs that reveal
My ideas are so real
That they kneel to these words of ideals
