about

Carta’ P. aka “The Obvious Wonder” who hails from the talent rich city of Mount Vernon, NY debuts with his full length solo album “A Beautiful Mess”. In collaboration with french producer Parental, the two combine to mix melodic samples, strong baselines and infectious drums in conjunction with stories about women, relationships, life as an adult, money, children and family. The combination of Parental and Carta’ P. help produce a sound very similar to the 90’s “Golden Era of Hip Hop”. The entire project was produced by Parental and written by Carta’ P. over the span of two years. The two musical juggernauts collaborated and recorded over twenty songs together. Throughout the project, you can hear the musical chemistry along with the development of the album.

Carta’ P. is part of the hip hop underground group ADAGIO! from the mid to late 90’s. A lot of the same musical influences and lyrical creativity from ADAGIO! Can be heard through this latest collaboration.

Look out for the debut single "MSNBC / Love Sexy" which is available on all digital platforms. The album “A Beautiful Mess” is slated to be released in 2019, followed by the release of the EP “Crepes and Soul Food”.

Track Name: MSNBC: My Story Needs Better Clarity
(Verse 1)
Historically speakin’, I was competin’ with niggas in this rap game
Five years ago... with my same flow
A lot corny rappers too jealous to even know
So I decided to part ways and now the Obvious remains
Describin’ me is ratin’ me a 5 on a rap rubric
Life stories I use it to express with this music
The purpose of this art form is not just to make that green like your lawn
But to create a hip hop bond
I’m rather fond of my own sound... not soundin’ conceded
But that’s just the way I’m gettin’ down
From here and beyond... fuck the silver and the bronze
I want the gold and that’s it... the Obvious is on some shit
That’s probably what your sayin’ in the cut is where I’m always laying
Makin’ these hot rhymes while these corny rappers is always playin’
My job is rap all day and everyday
Just take a seat my nigga and stay the fuck up out my way

(Hook)
My story needs better clarity
It's just another day you watchin' TV
On MSNBC
Sometimes my story needs better clarity
It's just another day you watchin' TV
On MSNBC
Sometimes my story needs better clarity
It's just another day you watchin' TV
On MSNBC
Sometimes my story needs better clarity
It's just another day you watchin' TV

(Verse 2)
A lot of these rhymes were created from pain
New ways of doin’ things... I can’t do it the same
I could tell you probably didn’t really plan your whole album
You was probably pissed off high and free-stylin’
I got more rhymes in me and more shit to talk about
A lot of stuff to help alleviate your doubt
A clouded backdrop fills all your empty thoughts
And makes you wanna hate on this fly shit I bought

(Hook)

Track Name: Love Sexy
(Verse)
I’m in a room full of OGz.... all from Mount V
Watching football and zonin’ out to Heavy D
A nice vibe as I describe this dime inside
Who was ready to take me home and lay me on my backside
She gestured with her hands and made reference to her thighs
I glanced at her shoes to solidify the vibe
We talked for a few about her friends and my crew
Then I realized she resided on Hillside
All of a sudden... we had a nice type of vibe
We deepened the vibe and I was ready to ride
And she told me she was married and a baby that she carry
So I nutted all in her mouth.... all white like the Tooth Ferry

(Hook)
I Love Sexy... where’s sexy
I need sexy... I love Sexy
I wish she would text me... Where’s sexy
I love Sexy... I need sexy
