about

Reuniting with director, Nathan Cheney, Keith Phelps is providing music for the All New Sitcom, “Baker’s Boys” starring famed comedian, Tony Baker ( NBC’s The Last Comic Standing, The Carmichael Show, HBO’s All DEF Comedy). The release of the sitcom coincides with the release of a soundtrack from Phelps that features brand new music. The appropriately titled, OLA (Only Legendary Attempts) features a few familiar names and voices you’ve grown accustomed to hearing alongside Phelps. Producer, Ellis Woolfork opens the project with “Euthanasia” a track that allows Keith to flawlessly reflect on his journey thus far in the music industry. Frequent collaborators James Adkins and Brandon Joyner also return to lend their genius touches to the project. It’s clear and evident that Keith Phelps’ Real Music Affiliates will not accept anything less than maximum effort. Only Legendary Attempts from here on out.

Track Name: Ellis Woolfork - Euthanasia (feat. Keith Phelps)
Pretend to show me love
Just to gain my trust
Bet you never thought I’d get past you

I came in bright eyed bushy tailed
A gullible rookie fail
Showin' up to the playground with a shovel and a pale
Was tryin to build a castle made of obstacles and hassle
Imagine tryna stop Steve Jobs from making Apple
Imagine making so many beats that you could retire
Imagine making enemies out of those you admire
Imagine bein' so raw that they wishin' you would expire
This irrefutable greatness with audible qualifiers
That's 712 contacts in the Rolodex
I’m paranoid
Who gon' try to pigeonhole me next?
Who else gon' try to act like I ain’t what I say I am?
Like I ain’t on my Diddy and get with Daven and make a band
I wish that people would call less and just pay more
Come watch me blow
It's all mine
I'm Mr. Claymore
Claim to be a fan a supporter
Let’s hear you say more
Opposition slain and I'm forecasted to slay more

Pretend to show me love
Just to gain my trust
Bet you never thought I’d get past you

Pretend to show me love
Just to gain my trust
Bet you never thought I’d get past you
Track Name: James Alexander Adkins - Better Without Me (feat. Weava)
I’m not just talking
I wanna be down for you
Do all things that people do
When they’re together
But I know better
There is a lot
That stands in between us
I know we got
And it ain’t love
So what’s the rush?

You text me how feel
Say it's so
If it’s real
From your heart to your soul
To me you were beautiful

You text me how feel
Say it so
If it’s real
From your heart to your soul
For me I gotta let you go

When I was good with having you
It took so long to speak the truth
What I say to you is over due
You will be better without me
So much better without me

We tried to leave it to chance
Without even standing a chance
Completely ignoring truth
Like we don't have a clue
Like I ain’t been through this time and time
Again again with you
You be aggravatin' my soul
Every time you bang my line
You just wanna fuss and waste all my time
He say, she say, we say, hang up then you

Text me how feel
Say it's so
If it’s real
From your heart to your soul
To me you were beautiful

You text me how feel
Say it so
If it’s real
From your heart to your soul
For me I gotta let you go

When I was good with having you
It took so long to speak the truth
What I say to you is over due
You will be better without me
So much better without me

When I was good with having you
It took so long to speak the truth
What I say to you is over due
You will be better without me
So much better without me
Track Name: Keith Phelps - Humble Man's Struggle
Momma always said don’t overemphasize the prize
Don’t let them people dangle that karat between yo eyes
Don’t let yo downfall be the result of your surprise
And when you make it to the top
You don’t forget about the Christ
I can see so many things beyond the naked eye
Industry seem so strong until you view it from inside
These people they do the most for the cost of burgers and fries
Entire dynasties and legacies founded upon a lie

Exposin’ the truth is met with the accusation of hate
And if you get to you loud yo people might find you dead in the lake
The very ones who did it be the first to show up at the wake
With the falsified sympathy and the tissues for family pain
Often ridiculed for having a soul and having a brain
Cuz having both of those delay the time it takes to get paid
It’s like a player sent to the bench right after the huddle

Correction sir its just the Humble Man's Struggle

What do you do when you know so much but you can’t speak?
When it’s so close to you but you can’t reach?
When they make what is evil look and taste so sweet?
Makin’ sure people like just you are never to be seen?
Cost a couple of thousand just to get a record made
Go head and throw in your soul and maybe you can get it played
Gotta keep quiet and continue the holy hustle
Ladies and gentlemen this is the Humble Man's Struggle

I get question all the time
How is that you haven’t blown like military mines?
How is it that you drive a car purchased in ’05?
Amongst the stars, within the industry I thought you would’ve thrived
I mean thought you would’ve had a house or two by now
How come them people that you know don’t ever shout you out?
You mean to tell me they won’t work with you because of clout?
Because your heart is full of venue seats that never sell out?
That’s a game you know your boy was never qualified to play
To be an industry fraud who’s searchin’ for his claim to fame
Before you ever can abound you get your strength being abased
And when He give it to you, no one else can come take it away
No, no, no, no, no, no
Takes a great deal of time and patience
To influence and affect a whole generation
So when you hear my records
See my band and all the hustle

You’ll under stand the beauty of the Humble Man’s Struggle

What do you do when you know so much but you can’t speak?
When it’s so close to you but you can’t reach?
When they make what is evil look and taste so sweet?
Makin’ sure people like just you are never to be seen?
Cost a couple of thousand just to get a record made
Go head and throw in your soul and maybe you can get it played
Gotta keep quiet and continue the holy hustle
Ladies and gentlemen this is the Humble Man's Struggle

What do you do when you know so much but you can’t speak?
When it’s so close to you but you can’t reach?
When they make what is evil look and taste so sweet?
Makin’ sure people like just you are never to be seen?
Cost a couple of thousand just to get a record made
Go head and throw in your soul and maybe you can get it played
Gotta keep quiet and continue the holy hustle
Ladies and gentlemen this is the Humble Man's Struggle
Track Name: James Alexander Adkins - Overthinking
Overthinking
Steady overthinking it all
How should I, how should I handle my heart?
So many ways to play this
Don't know if I should say it
Goodness gracious
I think that I'm falling apart

How will I manage?
This love'll do you damage
All the things that could surface
Will they all be worth it?
Are you feeling how I'm feeling?
Do you know the things your dealing with?
My heart is yours for stealing
Though it needs a bit of healing

Help me get this off my chest
Or else it won’t be safe for me inside my head
I’m hoping that you hear me when I say I love you
Just don’t leave me here alone without you
I can’t breathe whenever you’re not here
I’m drowning
Help me get above the waves
They’re crashing on me
Take my hand and pull me out the water
Free my mind they say and the rest’ll follow

Overthinking
Steady overthinking it all
Overthinking
Steady overthinking it all

I be lost in my mind
Can’t find the time to ever get right
All in my head
That’s what keeps us apart
Blind from the start
Shots in the dark
I will never hit my target
If I forfeit my heart
Win or lose
Win
That separates boys from men
Comin' out with your soul
But I knew that going in
Fragile are my feelings
Still waiting on healing
All this and then some
I’m still overthinking
So please tell me

How will I manage?
This love'll do you damage
All the things that could surface
Will they all be worth it?
Are you feeling how I'm feeling?
Do you know the things your dealing with?
My heart's yours for stealing
Though it needs a bit of healing

Help me get this off my chest
Or else it won’t be safe for me inside my head
I’m hoping that you hear me when I say I love you
Just don’t leave me here alone without you
I can’t breathe whenever you’re not here
I’m drowning
Help me get above the waves
They’re crashing on me
Take my hand and pull me out the water
Free my mind they say and the rest’ll follow

Overthinking
Steady overthinking it all
