Souls of Mischief and Adrian Younge are coming out with a collaborative album called There Is Only Now. They debuted the title track today. Check it out above via SoundCloud.

"There Is Only Now" is an awesome flashback to old-school hip hop. Despite the opening line of the hook, "The past is an illusion there is only now," this track certainly draws from past influences with its '90s-style boom-bap beat and the constant delivery of dope bars. Souls of Mischief are joined by fellow Californian and '90s hip-hop Snoop Dogg, whose mellow lyrics fit right in with this nostalgic track.

There Is Only Now hits store August 26 and is available for pre-order now on iTunes.

"There Is Only Now" - Souls of Mischief & Adrian Younge ft Snoop Dogg Lyrics:

The past is an illusion there is only now
The future is a fiction there is only now
A brief intermission there is only now
Of this there is no question there is only now
And if I get too lifted would you hold me down
And if you think I’m slipping would you show me how
The future is a fiction there is only now

Check it,
It was the kind of love
Most people only find it once
Divinely touched by angels
There was no time for lust

Plus some’ll tell that a teenage love
Will never last
Looking through the glass
Of past scars
Fast forward to the future
Where the youth
Them are a-changing

But this couple don’t care what you saying
They’re hearts blazing
Can’t nobody tell ‘em nothing
Their love is unstoppable

Overcome any obstacle
Together they will always grow

Don’t let go I’m holding on
He know they saying take it slow
To him it’s taking long
Safest place is in your arms
Her daddy saying this ain’t right
To her it can’t be wrong
Baby if we hold on a little while longer
‘Cause the love is so strong
You know that I would die
If you left me

I pray this feeling never leaves me
I want it forever
And I’ll do anything
To see that we always together
Whatever
It takes for something that no one can sever
Together, forever, whatever
It takes for something that no one can sever
And I’ll do anything
To see that we always together
Forever, together
Together, forever

What’s love
Can you imagine being told, by the old
This ain’t right, fuss and fight
Don’t you roll, it’s so cold
What’s your mold, will he break
Or will he fold
They on him, they want him
The homie Stoney
In love with his girl and so is his big homie
Now what a pity
A footnote to the cutthroat, it’s rare
See I was told all in love is unfair
One fee, one fare, done there
Fishin’, dishin’, and wishin’ upon air
Vision beyond years
Damn, people always pushing the wrong way
See my advice to the homie Stoney
Is do it your own way, the long way
And hear what the song say
Together, forever
Forever, together, ya dig
See this what it’s supposed to boast
And get close and be with the one that you truly love the most
It’s destiny

The past is an illusion there is only now

They already move
Planets and moons
The plan is to vanish and move
Flip a townhouse down south
Pow wows with the gals
Out bound fishing boat
Where the city folks sip and smoke
Then these folks pushing the envelope
Which extended hope
To a inner-most impulse
His desire for a child undisclosed

Deep inside a fire took hold
The moment that the plot was shown
Visions of intermingled souls
Matching afros, juleps on a creaky porch
Life at a slower tempo
No regulations to encroach upon their relations
Cantankerous kinfolks, damn
If they can’t accept us
Then we ‘gon scram

Can’t hide the way that I’m feeling for you
My emotions can’t be concealed (I was in love)
And together you and I will show the world (I wanted him to be the only one)
Our love is for real (I was in love)

The past is an illusion there is only now, now
A brief intermission there is only now
Of this there is no question there is only now
And if I get too lifted would you hold me down
And if you think I’m slipping would you show me how
The future is a fiction there is only now
The past is an illusion there is only now, now
