Tommy Wright III – Genesis (Greatest Underground Hits) is a testament to underground rap. Underground rap is so much better than mainstream rap. Everything from gangsta rap to horrorcore is included on this album. The sounds of Memphis rap are dark and raw. This album is no exception. Now this album is his most gangsta rap oriented rap album to date with songs such as Runnin and Gunnin, On Da Creep, Homicidal Ride, and One Man Gang. Memphis rap fans will surely dig this album. Runnin and Gunnin is his most gangsta album to date.
Runnin-N-Gunnin is an action packed gangsta rap song which gives us details Tommy Wright III’s run in’s with the law and the escapades that follow. The bold and daring Runnin and Gunnin does not fail to disappoint. Runnin-N-Gunnin serves as his story of how he committed a 1st degree murder. One can expect the song to get violent and gruesome.
Tommy Wright III started out with six bullets but ended up with zip. So he fucked around and bounced. He gave his Glock 17 to his road dog (roadie) fully loaded. Creepin’ never sleepin’, duckin’ and divin’ as Tommy does his thang.
Tommy tells us exactly how his gang got raided at the shack they were at in these lyrics. “Left my gang at the shack, some of my niggas was left on the track/Boomin’ dope, never soap, but them folks set up a raid/All them dealers dropped they dope and got my cousin caught that day”
He left his gang at the shack. Police had the shack set up to be raided so they could catch criminals. His cousin got caught in the raid that day. He got charged for 40 rocks. Police discovered his cousin had a gun and took him into custody. Now he’s serving time in the penitentiary. Down in 201 is a reference to doing time in penitentiary or the county jail.
So Tommy has his Glock with six shells. Finna break his cousin out of jail. Drivin’ down the highway, mane. You know someone is from Memphis when they say mane. He got off at the Union exit. Tommy is now scoping out for police cars. He ain’t scared ’cause he’s hard.
So Tommy walked up to the door and broke out running past the checkout cop. The metal detector went off because he shot froths chrome glock. His cousin is located on the fourth floor. Tommy finds his cousin and escapes jail. The jailbirds escaped with them. Police put out an APB. Now they run deep through downtown. They get into the hooptie, but for some reason the car is not working. All they need is to find a car that works.
They went into a bank. Tommy shot the security guard while his jailbirds stuck up all the bank tellers. All the jailbirds jumped in the back with the money sacks. Now he is down to four bullets but had to use the fourth one. He saw blue lights in the rear view mirror ahead. So he punched the gas and drove off. Memphis Police Department blocked off the street. So everybody ran on foot through the woods. Duckin’ and dodgin’ from them folks.
Shoot To Kill is a grotesque murderous track filled with violence. The song is about killing people as evidenced from the title.
Tommy Wright III is the last of MC´s because the others all left. He is never looses a battle because he fights until the last breath. He creeps with a gun. So don’t talk crap. He’ll shoot a motherfucker in less than a minute. He never runs when it’s time to spray. His rhyming scheme is quite clever and street savvy. Read these lyrics, “As I blast like a rocket/Keeping clips in my back pocket”
So put on your black mask and gloves before you ride. ’Cause it’s gonna be hell if you can be identified. Dead bodies are hauled off to were suckers get broke and can’t cope.
Tommy is like a warrior who fights like a barbarian with strength like the incredible Hulk. An uzi and a tech 9 are what he is carrying. Those are the firearms in his possession. He is launching MC´s like a catapult with strength like the incredible Hulk. Leaving niggas dead without a box. He cut off their heads, freezes them, and hangs them up on the wall to show that he wants to brawl and nail them so they won’t fall. He is just like a hitman. Tommy for hire.
He hate to see blood but I love to see bloodshed. He’s violent as hell when it comes to this type of shit. Quite questionable if you ask me. Tommy is a gangster, pimp and player. Just beware. Because he doesn’t care about your welfare or well-being. You niggas know the deal. Tommy Wright the 3rd Shoots To Kill.
H is for homicide and A is attack. So get the fuck back. Run in the house and look out the crack of the window. When he is shooting he wants somebody to die. Wasting bullets is when/while everyone is still alive something he hates doing. Tommy was brought up to beat tricks up making them wish they was locked up. That’s what they get for tryna buck with a nigga from Memphis.
The only job he has is keeping the cemetery full. His clothes are red from the blood of all his victims he killed. Compared to his speed, your punch is slow as his last. Don’t ever try to battle him because he fights dirty. Tommy keeps robbing niggas because he’s broke. There are so many holes in a nigga you think he had polka dots. If you really want mercy get on your knees and kneel to pray. No use in begging because Tommy gets loose without sympathy. Sending tricks to the med with a broke leg or two.
If he ain’t got my pistol, he’ll bust your head with a bottle of brew. One of his niggas will bust your face up with axes. It is guarantied you will need an autopsy after the massacre, mayhem, and murder when he is through. Going round for round in combat mode. There is no escape when he begins slay and spray. He is on that other level. He is gunning in the mist of this combat. Comin´ from the streets of hell. Teaching a lesson with a blessing from this Smith and Wesson. Leaving the scene of the crime like he ain’t did shit.
He is direct with his lyricism. “And when I shoots to kill you know I’m shooting directly at anyone/
I’m chewing motherfuckers like annihilators/And when I fight I’m throwing nothing but haymakers”
I rate this album 5/5*****!!
