about

Following the success of his 2018 instrumental beat tape, "A Christmas Album," this time Gazaway flips the concept on it's head by stepping up to the mic and collaborating with a stellar lineup of emcees including Dillon, Napoleon Da Legend and Awon.

"The Christmas Spirit(s)" delves into the ghostly perspectives of Christmas past, present, and future, adding a unique modern twist to the Charles Dicken's timeless classic ' A Christmas Carol."

lyrics

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway]
Yo don’t mean to wake you up, but is the ghost of Christmas past
My bad I didn’t mean to spook you homie just relax
But I want to talk, 'cause I can see that you been mad
At the world, and starting to affect they way you act
'Cause lately your perspective is that everything is rotten
But what I’m about to show you is glimpse of days forgotten
Let’s take it back to when you were just a little boy
When the the room is filled with laughter in your heart was filled with joy
And underneath the Christmas tree was all your favorite toys
But then you grew up and you had dreams destroyed
I know that life is hard, but you always have a choice
There’s a lot of people out there who don’t even have a voice
So this Christmas? Let’s be thankful for what we have
Laugh, and make memories that are gonna last
Here’s your stop, hit me If you need to catch a cab
Signing off, here’s my card, it's the Ghost of Christmas past

[Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway]
Yo I don’t mean to interrupt, but it’s the ghost of Christmas present
I didn’t mean to scare you but I’m here to teach a lesson
See some people think that Christmas time is all about the presents
But I’ma show you a just couple things you been forgetting
And I know that for some folks, Christmas is a blessing
But for others this time of year, Christmas is depressing
People stressing, and I ain’t just talking bout Tiny Tim
I’m talkin' 'bout the homeless shelter by where you live
What happened, to just trying to help and give
Seems like we forgot the meaning of Christmas and what it is
If not do it for yourself, at least do it for the kids
'Cause the sound of their laughter is like music to the ears
It’s a new year, So let try not regret it
And all that negativity? Yo you just need to dead it
I’m here, to send you this message I hope get it
Signing off, truly yours, It’s the ghost of Christmas present

[Verse 3: Amerigo Gazaway]
I don’t mean to interrupt but it’s the ghost of Christmas future
I’m sorry if I scared ya, yo I didn’t mean to spook ya
But picture this, everybody gathered at your funeral
Cousins, nieces, nephews and and all the people you know
But as you look around? Nobody sheds a tear
Because when you were alive, you were never really there
We tried to call, we tried to show you that cared
But you were always too busy, tried to stay out of your hair
Yet we can’t forget, all the good times that we shared
The the laughter, and all that good food that mom prepared
Things could've been different if you’d been a little kinder
Having Christmas parties but nobody was invited
I know it’s in there somewhere if you look inside and find it
But life is strange, I wish there was some way we could rewind it
This is just a reminder, be kind, pay your producer
Until we meet again it's the ghost of Christmas future
