Holding a crystal ball with a vice-like grip before smashing it to smithereens, Confucius MC imploring you to ‘Look Deeper’ takes snapshots of seasonal gloom and bitterness. Lead in by ghost train rumbles en route to realness and foundation, a QBC warning shot made unmistakable by pianos and horns laid in the cut by Blah's alchemist of anxiety Sam Zircon, Confucius’ fixed gaze examining the inner mind’s eye is a classic hoods-up-heads-down anthem telling you to keep your chin up and your chest out while fact blurs into fiction. Shit out of South London is about to get hectic.

Cited by Kate Tempest as "a huge influence on my life, my character and my rhyme-style", Confucius has been carving his own echelon in the UK hip-hop landscape alongside working at a London primary school teaching the art of writing and lyricism, on top of running creative workshops for young people in his community. A top tier collaborator who has worked with Blu & Swarvy, Verb T & Pitch 92 and Micall Parknsun & Giallo Point, Confucius earned rave reviews as one half of Old Paradice with producer Morriarchi for last year’s ‘The Last Resort’ EP, and on the Jehst single 'Autumn Nights' at the tail-end of 2019.


I said look
Take a good look
And look deeper
Everybody take a good look
And look deeper
Tell me what you see
When you destroy the image
Trying to see your enemy
In a hall full of mirrors

I look at the date
And wonder where the time flew away
Caught up in the grey
Mind flew away
Seems like just the other day
We were young whipper-snappers
Rhyme writing in the booklet of life
The sickest chapters
Pen was the footstep
Page was the grizzly grey street
Stayed in line
But we strayed on the beat
Penning in permanent marker
Shared pain
In a circle of laughter
Felt the pressures of life
Became darker
Some would leave no imprint
Except for their memory
That's why we raise a couple of glasses
And toast the heavenly
That left the battlefield unexpectedly
That's why I cherish everyday of my life
And the breath I breathe

I said look
Take a good look
And look deeper
Everybody take a good look
And look deeper
Tell me what you see
When you destroy the image
Trying to see your enemy
In a hall full of mirrors

I look at the skies
And wonder the seasons don't change
Caught up in a battle
And the reasons don't change
Fiendin' for some meaning
Cos it's seeming so strange
How we keep the seedlings dreaming
Of the Beamers
Gold chains
Until they're sleeping
Lullabies
From a plasma screen
Looking up
Trying to catch the beam
This life can change shape
Like Plasticine
While we're trying to hold money
Like cash machines
Spiritual warriors
Trying to scale The Holy Mountain
Lonely townsman
Sipping ale
From the lonely fountain
No connection
To the grounds were found in
And if you listen close
You can hear the sound
Of the thousands drowning
Some would leave no imprint
Waste a royal life
Throwing weed in to king skins
Taught very little
So we feed off of instinct
And put it all down in the book
Saying look
Look
Look

I said look
Take a good look
And look deeper
Everybody take a good look
And look deeper
Tell me what you see
When you destroy the image
Trying to see your enemy
In a hall full of mirrors

I look in the mirror
Greeted by a creature so strange
Many different shades
But the features don’t change
Fiending for some deepness
Because its seeming so strange
Because they keep the preachers preaching
The defeatist old game
Until we're sleepless
How do you dream
Until you know what its real?
How do you love
Until you know what to feel?

I said look
Take a good look
And look deeper
Everybody take a good look
And look deeper
Tell me what you see
When you destroy the image
Trying to see your enemy
In a hall full of mirrors
