Pancho and Lifted of The New F-O's
​If you pick up a copy of this week's Phoenix New Times, be sure to check out this week's music feature on local hip-hop-infused pop band, The New F-O's. The guys have been making quite a name for themselves both in the Southwest club scene, as well as nationally with music placement on television shows such as Jersey Shore and Wilfred.

Up on the Sun has an exclusive New F-O's track called "Town," featuring Sam Bruno and Hannibal LEQ. The guys say the song was inspired about being a performance artist, and they hope the lyrics give listeners some insight into their musical careers.

Singer/rapper Pancho says, "It showcases life in the spotlight, both positive and negative, and how people look at you differently once they realize that the music we create is the same music they jam out to." Rapper Lifted stresses the song has an uplifting take-away, saying he hopes fans "stay positive through any situation and try to find the silver lining in anything and never quit or give up."

Check out the track, along with lyrics, after the jump, and check out the band tonight when they perform at The Roxy Lounge in Old Town Scottsdale at 8 p.m.

Town

PRE-CHORUS
I'm used to living out my life on all these stages, the bright lights shining down on me
I'm sick of feeling like I'm kept in all these cages, gotta learn to let it be

CHORUS
I'm goin' for it all, control my own fate 
Headed to the top, destination outta space 
Trapped behind bars, is where I feel safe 
My dream is a nightmare, I'm prayin' I won't wake
(It's time to blast off) I'ma blast off
The countdown started, I'm comin' out the dark
(I'ma blast off) it's time to blast off
It's mind ova matter, only matters if you lost

HANNIBAL VERSE
Famous, call me Lupe Fiasco
Back stage blown da Donnie Brasco
Lights on me isn't this what you asked for
A beast in the cage plus he an asshole
Bet I be livin' good, said I'd be livin' straight
Veteran from the hood, a delegate in my state
Got the spotlight on, in my black and white ones
(Huh) let me out my cage that's when I transform
Microphone my arm flame on one section
Space jam jordan, score witout stressin'
Made for this lifestyle, music's my employer
Travelin' man, travelin' lands like Tom Sawyer
I wouldn't change none of it, neva gon be don wit, 
Til the butterflies in the pit of my stomach quit
I'm in for the long haul wit a strong fan base, 
In a town near you, I'm jus waitn' on the paper, paper (yea)

PRE-CHORUS
I'm used to living out my life on all these stages, the bright lights shining down on me
I'm sick of feeling like I'm kept in all these cages, gotta learn to let it be

CHORUS
I'm goin' for it all, control my own fate 
Headed to the top, destination outta space 
Trapped behind bars, is where I feel safe 
My dream is a nightmare, I'm prayin' I won't wake
(It's time to blast off) I'ma blast off
The countdown started, I'm comin' out the dark
(I'ma blast off) it's time to blast off
It's mind ova matter, only matters if you lost

LIFTED VERSE
Yeah, as they're biting on the bait now
Hey, all these lights in my face now
I guess that's just the price you gotta pay babe
That's if you want the icing on the cake yeah
The only life that I wanna know
Fells right now I'm hype as I wanna go
I'm on the radio, I'm up until I fall
Nobody's safe from the lames so we kill 'em all
So until tomorrow, it's been a pleasure fam
It feels right when I'm killin every measure damn
And real life in my company
Nothing's free as usual and that to me is beautiful

PRE-CHORUS
I'm used to living out my life on all these stages, the bright lights shining down on me
I'm sick of feeling like I'm kept in all these cages, gotta learn to let it be

CHORUS
I'm goin' for it all, control my own fate 
Headed to the top, destination outta space 
Trapped behind bars, is where I feel safe 
My dream is a nightmare, I'm prayin' I won't wake
(It's time to blast off) I'ma blast off
The countdown started, I'm comin' out the dark
(I'ma blast off) it's time to blast off
It's mind ova matter, only matters if you lost
