about

Ohio based drummer/beatmaker, Holbrook Riles III (AKA hr3), produced his first ever EP entitled "Points of View." This EP is based off of the music and original compositions of the Akron based experimental R&B/Hip Hop group, Bluelight. The band leader, Phil Anderson, planted the idea in Holbrook's head to remix the first self titled EP. Undertaking the project, Holbrook crafted new compositions, while discovering a new voice in beat making/production.

Track Name: Sip Slow (feat. Jul Big Green & Chris Coles)
(Verse 1)
(Awwwww YEAH!)
This is a story about a man named James
Vicious and ambitious who didn't play any games
Built his logs up/no propane and lit his flame
So if he lost-he was the only one to blame
-Now on the other hand/here goes Marty
Always strolling in tardy/huge parties
Jell-O shots of Bacardi
Party's with girls sahris/from Delhi to the safari
Living life to the max/cus only losers lived sorry
-Now Jimmy wanted to be one of the bosses
Spent 80 hours at work/slaving working on new projects
Succeed at all cost/was his creed over his family's needs/neglected
They just had to cut their losses
-Marty only lost sleep in consciousness
And money/cus he lacked financial common sense
Phony friends/attracted to green and confidence
Stale compliments/just for his accomplishments

(Chorus)
So relax/and sip slow (sip slow)
Life is to fast/it'll be gone before you know
So take it piece by piece/one day at a time
Please be kind/because there's no rewinds

(Verse 2)
(Awwwww YEAH!)
This is a story about a man named James
Vicious and ambitious who didn't play any games
And on the other hand here we have Marty/who always parties
Who know two men so different could act the same
-See little Jimmy wanted money to the ceiling/swimming in millions
The big dogs made it so appealing
He had no hope from being broke/thought money'd change his feelings
But it won't buy happiness/ask Robin Williams
Seeing America we believe this hoax cus/we lose focus
We think we're smart/ we're being fooled for jokers
Green back stacks/live happy
That's not my approach/when we die it's just more food for the roaches
-Marty didn't believe in saving/Marty got it started
Marty had some parties that were so amazing
Girls around the world/Puerto Rican and Asian
Lobster steak/next night smashing on Cajun
Sounds fun/but the truth was
The girls his smooshed/smooched/ were all so ruthless
Marty had no roots/no one to hear his two cents
When he needed help-they treated him like a nuisance

(Chorus 2X)

(Verse 3)
Here we have party Marty/and workaholic Jimmy
Marty plays but doesn't work/and Jimmy works plenty
Both neglect the love love from the ones who gave any
Running on steam/will leave you full on empty
I could've been one of them but then life shook me
Mid hand in the jar/stealing all the cookies
I was destined for a stomach ache/but the facts I couldn't see
That too much of one thing/can be a bad thing
Cus all work and no play/or vice versa is a curse and makings for a really stressful day
Too much of anything gets overrated
Just keep it in moderations little homie
And I bet you'll be okay

(Chorus)
Track Name: The View Between Part 2 (feat. Phil Anderson)
(Verse 1)
So hard to see you fallin'/Got to slow down
I heard you back home/Seeing things (yeah)
Still upset about it/Upside down
I heard you back home/some things will never change

(Chorus)
The view from here/it isn't very clear inside my head
Rear view mirror/always looks the same as what's ahead
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you

(Verse 2)
So hard to see you lookin' back baby/you've got to face the front
No matter what you hear/don't make it really there
No matter what you think you saw/or what you've done
The view from you to me will take you there

(Chorus)
The view from here/it isn't very clear inside my head
Rear view mirror/always looks the same as what's ahead
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you
The view between/the view between
The view between me and you
Track Name: Reflectionz (feat. Lt Headtrip)
There's and older woman holding her groceries
About to fold and fall over/but I still won't get off my seat
There's a man with a cane standing next me
But I get to sit/cus I work all day on my feet

I'm entitled to a comfortable ride/I paid my fare and now I want to recline
I've earned my position/I deserve what I'm given
And its not my problem if they want what's mine

Here's to hoping I'm distinct from mankind
Here's to loathing what I need to survive
And if I ever reach a handout/and meet my demise
I guess you get what you give/the seat's damn fine
Track Name: Lover's Revolve (feat. Charlie Trenta, Michaelyn Oby, Phil Anderson
When it comes to love/I have paid my dues
And I have sang the blues
I've seen lover's revolve/I've seen love dissolve
And when it comes to us/ I hope it's not the same
I hope that we can change
I've seen lover's revolve/I've seen love dissolve
(When Love spins around/hold onto the ground/Listen to the sound/Keep on facing down/Hold onto the ground/Listen to the sound)
I've seen love dissolve
Track Name: DELAY (feat Lt Headtrip)
We've stopped the train because a man needs assistance
(But Imma' be late, and he's already basically gone!!)
We apologize for the delay, and the inconvenience
(How about you apologize to my clients and my boss?!)
We've stopped the train because a man needs assistance
(If I don't make it on time, I won't ever take this call!)
We apologize for the delay, and any inconvenience
(Apologize to my wife and my kids when I lose my job!!)
Track Name: Someone Else's Dream (feat. Phil Anderson)
You have to believe it to see it
You've got to love it to leave it
We're all in someone else's dream
He couldn't achieve it
Track Name: Sleep-REbeat
Uh, yeah. Let's get it in here
(Work, gym, sleep, repeat)
One more time, say it with me now
(Work, gym, sleep, repeat)
Repeat, repeat
