about

GET IT was recorded in Brooklyn, NY in 2016 - with the exception of "Nuddy Buddy" which was recorded by and with Dr. Bliss at THE BOOTY FACTORY in Atlanta, GA. Thank you Dr. Bliss for your dirt nasty bass lines and engineering skills!!! Crushing it!

The music on this album, and its title (title track) are expressions and reflections of what is currently going on and relevant in both my life and the world at large - a need for change, personal and social, individual and collective... you listen to the music you'll get the idea

Ancelmo James uses Fender guitars and basses, Fender, Orange, Ampeg and Dr. Z amps, Rogers drums and Zildjian cymbals, Dave Smith and Moog analog synthesizers, Dave Smith analog drum machines, Roland Spdxs drum pads

Grateful to and thankful for all three of my Quickly Quietly bandmates for having made contributions on this album. I love them all immensely

Massive Ups to my homie Mike Irish for the sick beats on -

Booking@shiftedrecording.com

Massive Ups to my best friend Chris O'Brian for the analog Tempest beats on -
'Get It'
'Be Love'

Chris is the drummer and co-founder of Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad - a national touring reggae band for over 15 years. Giant Panda released their 6th studio album 'Make It Better' on September 16th. It is currently number 1 on the Billboard Reggae charts. All their music can be found at LivePanda.com

A big thank you to my homie Zac Mallard for making the album art for this record. Zac, aside from making album covers, is the founder and proprietor of a very fresh and cool Brooklyn based men's all natural hair product company - Empire Apothecary - I'll say this, I never put anything in my hair for 30 years... I use his pomade. All inquiries regarding graphic design and general jib jab contact Zac at
Zacmallard@gmail.com

For all necessities and curiosities regarding style and grooming -
empireapothecary@gmail.com

And yet again, for the 4th straight album - A special thank you to Aaron Hyzen for his mixing and mastering skills, without which this record would not sound nearly as amazing as it does.
Aaron is straight killin it, and it goes without saying, although I'll say it anyway, that a large part of my sound, the vibe of my records, are very much the result of my collaborations with Mr. Hyzen. Aaron and I aren't going to stop pushing until we start approaching some kind of Nigel Godrich/Radiohead level of insanity. Can't thank you enough homie!!

Aaron is the proprietor and engineer/producer at Nothing But Air Studio located in Williamsburg, BK - he'll set you up nice AF and make you sound real good. This man's talents are, only for now, available at some incredible prices. GET AT HIM!!!!

Track Name: Be Love
Love is what it is right now/
love has always been and yet somehow/
we sometimes forget love is boss/
love will overcome at any cost/

its time to face the truth/
truth is much we have to lose

We need love/

Love is what it is right now/

world out of control from west to east/
love not war that will bring peace

its time to face the truth/
truth is love we have to do

We need love/

Love reaches not from coast to coast/
but through all time and space, love is the most

We need love/

Track Name: Nuddy Buddy
Tonight's the night for ice cream some a dat nice cream/
who knew it'd be so frighteneen to go down to the local soda parlor with my homie n get looked up n down this ain't no nice dream/
it's turnin into a nightmare mr man gave A n I a scare/
Rollin up mumblin and grumblin bout givin us a ride down the drain in those eyes you can feel the pain of years that might bring tears which brings us full circle to the fears of a dreary heart of a nation embodied in a man with a van/
Let's not forget our man down on Ponce de leon with dat plant in his hand/
sittin on the side walk/
indecipherable jib jab rantin n ravin bout ayunis Mohawk/
chalk it all up to what?? /
big trouble in little five points/
3 days/ two goons/ 1 track of lit grooves

We shall overcome

Shout out to King Ray n JB/ Georgia on my mind, in my skin I smell you I'm tellin you it's hot/
this ish is thot/
my rhymes not so fleek but really ain't so bleak/
workin on it, playin on it, crushin on the meatbox Hank brings the sub synth stank spank/
fuckin bass lines is straight swank/
loungin at the Claremont with my man Andre 3000/
omni theater remains in light/
to this day Gota drink yo juice if you wana stay right!

Spottieoddiedopalicious in yo face

Georgia on my mind, Atlanta you so fine

Down in east ATL Hotlanta it's a spell/
sticky AF like a nutty buddy so what!/
yall want a ride? Fuck no we ain't no clowns /
tryin ta get me in yo van paddy wagon style /
put fear in my eyes like cops with their lies /
brutal hate breeds fear /
fear will kill us all/
Gota stop the fuzz from Beatin kids /
187 on these mutha fuckin pigs/
can't take it no more any more is too much /
the system run so deep divided and conquered it's a go, shit is steep/
hill trump same team /
whichever cheats, wins makes no difference to me /
we Gona flee to the promised land is there even one? /
(We shall overcome)
We shall Over come this vile style so entrenched in psychological warfare / on the horizon i see our only hope in a man with a plan mr sanders yes we can /
let's do this before we lose this beautiful country to the kkklan/
of bank owning old white men desperately grasping to the whispering tails of a medieval idea that they have a right to control us, oppress us,
the time Is upon us together and united we stand!
Track Name: So Beautiful
I die in her eyes/
I cry in her smile/
she looks at me it's the truth/
truth is it's been a while

first time in a long time/
feel the way I do, n I do cause of you

You're so beautiful/
every day, all the way, thank you/
you're so beautiful

We struggle it's real/
she tears me apart/
she come at me all honest/
cuts straight to the heart

first time in a long time/
feel the way I do, n I do cause of you

You're so beautiful/
every day, all the way, thank you/
you're so beautiful

Infinite loops, cold brew n ice cream scoops/
late nights in the studio/
in the art house with boo

You're so beautiful/
every day, all the way, thank you/
you're so beautiful
Track Name: Get It
Rising like the sea level/
change of climate comin, climbing, reachin for the climax/
she brings me here, I take her there/
we come together like Sir Paul I slay them lines like lions/
low end growlin, sub oscillatin, investigating sounds, research, theory its all science til you gota lay it down/
bring them boys home I aint talkin bout no troops/
Im rappin bout skrill, bones, colones, dat paper son/
father told me it aint about excess it's about success
make what you love work for you/
work for who you love and she'll love you for you

You gota get it, go out and get it

Workin hard, hardly work when you love it/
love gets me up in the am, keeps me goin til the am/
long days in the cave reachin, diggin, lookin for that flavor, pushing that envelope filter til the mopho blows your head straight off/
straight up and down music is my life/
I made a choice, I aint looking for fame, I seek the truth/
ruthless to find a voice that is my own/
one you can hear through that drum in your ear/
move to the beat of your own/
can't hear until you listen/
listen to me when I tell you, you gota go out and get it

You gota get it, go out and get it
Track Name: Jus Wana Dance
Leavin the crib, goin to the club/
walkin down the street, shakin in the tub/
wit da buds thumpin in yo ear/
starin down that PA blare/
think golden feet on the king of pop/
Prince's magic soles just dont stop/
throw it back to the OG crew godfather of soul show us how he do

Can't stop this posi feeling/
feel like cuttin rugs this evening

I jus wana dance/
gona crush the floor tonight/
gone sweat til daylight
I jus wana dance/
need to shake it up and down/
take it high down to the ground

So feel the groove, let it make you move/
that drum n bass always set the mood
baby makin music good for you/
hip hop don't stop the rhythm is true/
bee bop still crushing old school/
you like me funk'll make you swoon/
Bach makes all the girls panties drop/
3 centuries killin at the top

Can't stop this posi feeling/
feel like cuttin rugs this evening

I jus wana dance/
gona crush the floor tonight/
gone sweat til daylight
I jus wana dance/
need to shake it up and down/
take it high down to the ground

don't matter what you listen to/
how you get down for you to choose/
when you shake it you look so fine/
dance all night or til the end of time

I jus wana dance/
gona crush the floor tonight/
gone sweat til daylight
I jus wana dance/
need to shake it up and down/
take it high down to the ground
Track Name: Crush On
I worry, I wonder, how we could reach such a point this excess of blunder/
drastic measures are called for in these times of disastrous consequences far reaching from a history of greedy motherfuckers/
greedy motherfuckers consciously creating a system so dark and evil even Zod would kneel/
before them a deep sadness overwhelms when one realizes how far we've fallen/
the end is callin/
is anyone answering?/
and to know it could be better/
that polar bears don't have to vanish forever/
no amount of guilt will do/
still i feel, the real deal is to crush on, killing it in the name of love

Crush on and Kill it

Crush on, killing it in the name of love/
in the footsteps of giants before us Jimi, Albert, Hunter up above/
these guys knew how to see it, feel it BE IT, be it/
be what it may, whats the point? the point is this/
now's a time we alive not having what is needed/
and those that have are not human/
for this army of darkness humanity's survival/extinction is meaningless/
let me forego all the allusions to war and death. fear and hate, sickness and sadness, destruction and fate/
if there was ever a time to rise, a time to decide/
a moment to crush the junta and revolutionize/
that time is now!/
we all in this together/
let's make it happen

Crush on and Kill it
Track Name: Outro (Don't Go)
don't go/
please don't go

remember when you still smiled/
you used to see the world through the eyes of a child

don't go/
please don't go

we need you here/
i really care

please don't go
