    Teaming up to travel from Hip-Hop to Jazz, BrooklynBeatz and CandaceK begin on Marcy Avenue and take listeners on a trip to the famed jazz club as it was during its heyday just north of 52nd Street in Manhattan.

    As in life, detours, triumphs, and confusion all play a part in the struggle to find a place where you belong. But what you learn from the journey will enrich the destination. The struggle enriches the finale.

    With classic sounds from both of ends of the spectrum, jazz vocal stylings, story-based lyrics, and vintage instrumentation and vocal production, the project wouldn't be complete without a touch of soul.

    Come on down to Jazz Avenue, by way of Brooklyn.

    Lyrics:

    Feel so tired from the rollercoaster race I've run
    Always another mile to go
    Bout the time I think I’m done
    Almost there and I can see the door so clearly now
    Headed up the block got to find strength to get there somehow

    An0maly:
    I'm gonna get there
    I don't even know how
    But profound and hustling through this old town
    Life's a steady race
    I'm on my second leg
    Hope I don't catch a sprain
    or just some heavy rain
    Whoa, I'm gonna slip if I run faster
    They told me patience is a virtue
    So if it doesn't hurt you as you work through then it doesn't matter
    Just as long as you don't run backwards

    I been hustling, bustling, no discussion loving
    I'm above in the covenant no does what I does it
    Kinda fun to know that all this other struggling part of it
    I'm an artist who art is nothing comparable hardly it's
    Something that's different, a magician my carpet is
    Like Aladdin's, my castle, is quite the magic apartment
    They told me stay away from rap like it's arsenic
    But I made the race and left the speaker shaking like Parkinson's
    Yea we gonna make it

    Feel so tired from the rollercoaster race I've run
    Always another mile to go
    Bout the time I think I’m done
    Almost there and I can see the door so clearly now
    Headed up the block got to find strength to get there somehow

    CK:
    Completion (before)
    Depletion (let’s go)
    Finish line so close I can feel it
    So weary (keep on moving)
    But I'm nearing (keep on going)
    The place where I belong, can y'all hear it?

    So close
    Gotta keep on going
    Almost finished
    Bout to get it in yeah

    Feel so tired from the rollercoaster race I've run
    Always another mile to go
    Bout the time I think I’m done
    Almost there and I can see the door so clearly now
    Headed up the block got to find strength to get there somehow

    Outro:
    Yeah, yeah-eeh yeah
    When I get there I will know oh, oh
