Shady's Moment of Clarity... Under Current: Cultured Solutions
New Farm Layout, Album, Thread, Cuts, and Nutrients... Let's get this party started right...​

(feat. Chris Brown & T.I.)​
(Hook: Chris Brown)
If anybody feeling fresh in the building​
Take your hand, hold it high to the ceiling right now​
And say damn I'm killing them, damn I'm killing them​
I know they feeling me now​
And if you too fresh in the building​
Then take your hand, hold it high to the ceiling right now​
And say damn I'm killing them, damn I'm killing them​
I know they feeling me now​
(Verse 1: B.o.B)
And I'm still here with a lifestyle you would kill for​
Still here with the same shoes that I had on from the get-go​
Straight out of Atlanta, Georgia, for any of y'all that didn't know​
And I'm never that hard to find because 420 is my zip code​
But back then couldn't get dro, cause back then I was this broke​
That's why I got so many hustles, Bruh man from the fifth floor​
What would you do in the middle of the winter​
When the sun goes down and it gets cold?​
Growin' up in a house with no stove, no doors, no walls, no windows​
And my brother was always fresher​
I would go to school in his clothes, when I did go​
So that's why now this the type of life that I live for​
Comin' up as a youngin', man some nights I would vomit​
I would throw up on myself cause I was so sick to my stomach​
Now I'm the shit, fix the plumbing​
Feel with me y'all, I'm this close​
Spent my whole life chasin' chips, where's Nabisco?​
My past memories, I miss those​
Hey, all I can say is you get what you wish for​
(Verse 2: T.I.)
I'm fresh off my pit-stop, flow airtight with no Ziploc​
Get shit pop when my shit drop, no hip-hop, this Tip hop​
I'm back standin' at the tip top where I belong, it won't be long​
'Til you hear me on a B.o.B song, some chick gettin' my skeet on​
To touch the sole of my feet, G you gon' have to get your reach on​
I'm up all the way high, all the way fly on the ground and I'm off the radar​
Bernie Madoff money, dawg got killers paid off with it all​
I got the juice, could you place a call and we place a call to who place a call​
Don't get your part and not too hard, I disregard what you say​
Back up the trunk and pass the buck, here's where I'm stoppin' today​
Got swag all on me, homie, can't wipe it away we too ill, ill​
That's how we got arenas, domes, and stadiums filled​
How you feel?​
(Verse 3: B.o.B)
And I'm still here with a black whip from the strange clouds​
And I'm still here with the same team, nigga stay down​
Still here for the east side, ain't a thing change but the bank account​
Hands high when I come 'round cause I'm killin this shit nigga, hands down​
And I go hard, my passport's like a postcard​
Give a fuck if I'm solo, I'll go toe-to-toe with your whole squad​
With the soul of a soldier but even still I don't want no parts​
And no niggas with no hearts, you cocksuckers need throat guards​
I'm throwed off for the most part, a young dog with an old bark​
Flow dumb, but I'm so smart, I compose art, call me Mozart​
My nightlife's like a soap opera with two chicks like it's Noah's ark​
They got nice dresses with no bras with good bodies like "Oh God!"​
From a poor child to on top like a mohawk​
But I always knew I'd go far like a gas truck with no park​
So no applause, hold the applause​
Just put your hand up if you know the song​
(Hook x2)

Chillin' in the Shade...
Tuned in! May the Force be with you!
Thx for the support Shane!

Love it dawgy! Good to see you knocking shit out! What u runnin this round?
Whaddup bud! Thx for the kind words... I'm monocropping the UC for the first time and running all Skywalker OG. I've also got quite a few beans to pop, but I'm about to flip the following cuts from the soil side which is temporarily in my 3rd light setup, and then move them next to the UC after the Skywalker OG cuts are vegged for about a month...

gangSTAR bruh nice n clean
Thx brah! I'm feelin' fresh in the building...

Round 14... Roots Organic

Before I post up the veg shots of Round 14, I'd like to say that I finally hit 19 oz under the 600W HPS during the last round in Roots Organic. I also hit over a lb in the UC, so I did decently without supplemental CO2 or a dedicated grow room AC other than the house AC... In any event the following shots were taken over the last week or so after a month of veg where I topped once and then supercropped every 3 days... These plants were also transplanted to 3 gal Smart Pots a day before these shots...

Roots Organic R14-2.JPG

Then I cut all of the tallest shoots for clones...

And finally a couple lights out shots a week later...

P.S. The Roots Organic lineup is White Fire #3, Ghost OG, Plum Princess, White S1 (Pheno #7), White Stardawg, and Strawberry Bubba... Many thanks to my friend for getting me back in action... :cool:


Super clean setup as usual Shady, can't wait to see it all play out...
