Chosen is the Intro track into The Broccoli Tree album, more importantly a peek into the life of Jibba the Gent. It's about finding and believing in oneself, never giving up and getting what you deserve. Chosen is an intense ride into the mind of one of Vermont hip-hops best and brightest stars.


Intro: They've been searching (searching, searching) for one (one, one)
I've been pushing (pushing, pushing) forward (forward)
man I was living like an outlaw!

Come kingdom come
for thy will be done
save my soul, wash my sins
I can't turn back now, I've been Chosen

Verse 1:
In the past I had no path, I was lost in the woods
gettin' cash, whoopin' ass, livin' fast man things was not lookin' good
then my partner got caught up, locked up
cuz he sold to a rat
could of told on me, but he didn't
no he didn't and I owe him for that
My life, hand on the mic
one hand reachin for the lime light
every time I'm rappin I'm close to god
do this for my dead get close to y'all
shit, most of y'all probably can't relate
when ya aint doin' good but you know you're great
it's a lonely place to be in these beats
the only place for me I've sealed my fate

Chorus x2

Verse 2:
And I know this, that's the reason why I'm so focused
destinies in my reach my moments on its way
like seize it Johnny, grab the beat and decease it homie
watch em try and hold me down
oh no not now, never never that
pedal to the metal I'm never looking back
hang on tight, ride of your life
oh shit handle, road so dangerous
damn, y'all might wanna get out now
y'all might wanna quit bout now
cuz even when I wasn't picked, I felt Chosen
didn't misstep just kept on goin'
planted the seed and kept on growin
they didn't have the vision before, well I'll show them
wake up, bout to send this beat back to it's maker
holy water in the face of these haters
y'all been sleepin on me since sega
now the rooms lit up like Vegas
I'm still in all black like Vader
no mask for disguise, you can look in my eyes
can't hide it I'm a crook til the day I die
middle finger up to the po-po
will I ever take it down? hell no
I'ma kick it up a notch, steel toe
steal hearts, steal shows
what y'all still broke?
What y'all still here for?
better get up and get it if you want it
y'all pissed at a Vermonter?
I'm comin' up runnin' up with a fistful of dollars
and the other one uppercuts

Chorus x2

Verse 3:
Why? cuz I deserve it, put everybody first but me
Me?aint ever felt greed
whether lending my money or passin' them trees
J-I-B-The Gent, I'll bail you out, I'll pay your rent
give you one of my lungs if you can't breathe
then when you catch your first breath you say fuck me?
ahh that's when I flip
spaz on a bitch, you aint half the man that I am
leave your body in a shadow when I stand
rip your soul out throw it in a fryin' pan
watch the grease cook
you're so grimey, you"re so phoney, you're so fake
and I still don't hate
their aint a bone in my body that relate to you
better stay out my way man, I pray for you
in the name of the father and the son and the holy ghost
if you try something slick like oily roads
I'ma leave ya ass stiff like coma toast
god only knows 'bout the lonely zone I coldly roam
I've grown to love
man enough is enough im second to none
let me take my thrown I'm the chosen one

Chorus x2
