Track Name: The Calling ft. Adam Whiterock
(Verse 1)
I can feel something calling me
in the wisdom of the calm breeze
my heart beat to the rhythm of these dark streets
must remember every lesson my scars teach
right of passage in the jungle of concrete
all for a greater cause only God sees
initiation complete now it’s on me
to listen in the silence, my heart speaks

(Verse 2)
responsibility to speak truth in this world so deceitful
these lies are like bullets and they lethal
change of the times, we ride for the people
our tribe will survive, live backwards is evil
I’m rollin’ close with my soldier folk
so composed in this battle taking over souls
broke the code and we rose from the comatose
12 helixes awakened in our chromosomes
visions of my heart I gotta translate
to sine waves manifested into time space
vibrate into the form that this rhyme takes
shine rays, hustle hard and supply weight
for the cause, flippin’ keys for your mind-state
to make 3rd eyes see from behind gates
it’s high stakes when I’m moving with divine faith
futuristic flow making time wait
Track Name: 2 Lightworkerz ft. Ynn
(Verse 1)
from coming up hustlin’ with ambitions for those dividends
now I’m on the conscious tip, living what my mission is
now I don’t be talking sh***, I’ll show you how I’m livin’ it
broke out those boxes, I’m dealin’ with this infinite
to manifest dreams we envisioning
living in between 2 worlds, take initiative
hustle conscious, product I’m still flippin’ it
lyrics is like a narcotic but this a different trip
inner-light give sight to life’s shadows
frequency high, so we fly, where they can’t go
still dealing with my devils and my angels but…
now they help me see my life from different angles
trust when I listen, the silence is where the guidance is
so I don’t need a roley to know what time it is
soul mining for diamonds that never counterfeit
for lightworkerz shining like a halogen

(Ynn)
it’s just 2 lightworkerz in a Cadillac
keep ya 3rd eye open, no cataracts
x2

(Verse 2)
initiated for the journey I’m facing
now the city is the jungle and hustle in my nature
and I smell the imitation when dealin’ with snake agents
who change faces like masqueraders
trying to put a price on my shine like appraisers
but I am just vessel, all praise to Creator
laid the foundation, no slave to label, I stay straight
as a razor to pave my way, we trail blazin’
down for my city but the world what I travel now
keep the circle tight, need no friends, only family now
see I do this for my future baby girl
and the indigo child in the crowd that could change the world
with that old soul wisdom
surrounded by false idols talking loud and God’s whisper
better learn to listen, with proper intuition
that put us in position to complete the mission

(hook repeat)
Track Name: Imagine
(Verse 1)
fly lady, fly lady, just passin’ by
fly lady steal my heart wit no alibi
fly lady so refined like a diamond
she the type you hold tight when you find it
summer nights ridin’ out the city, catch the glow
of the sunset sky, breathe in northwest natural high
frequency, we tuned to the vibe
no stress on the mind, it’s all in the perfect time
where nothing really complicated
sweet as caramel melting in the conversation
enticing as her smile, I look into her eyes
deep into the sky, I see the stars aligned
like it was destined, I’m guessing she a Gemini or Aquemini
that wind to my fire
elements combine, natural alchemy
where we meet between dream and reality

(Verse 2)
John Lenon said imagine what the world needs
so we just staying under sheets to make love and dream
lady luscious queen, when I lay with you
it feel like deja vu, but now I live the dream
the morning light streams in, the summer breeze…
and the motions of the sea put the mind at ease
vibin’ out, 2 souls in harmonic keys
word to Coltrane now I know a love supreme
just in our own zone, keep the vibration high
through dimensions we ride imma hold you close
take it slow, feeling this resonance
til’ we hit just the right chord progression
synchronize rhythms, I feel ya body give me cues
to raise up the tempo, than hold for interlude
one Love is what we searching for
so we savor this moment before the encore
Track Name: Too Deep
(Verse 1)
now once upon a time not long ago
when a player from the P didn’t have no flow
you could find him at the Roseland hustlin’ snow
got you the low, plus his demo
living with dreams but day by day
he just trying to get by in this paper chase
living by the code of the game we play
and only God knows if he’ll change his ways
started with grams, move up to flip zips
thought he’s the sh** but the homies hit licks
for the come up, they’ll run up with a mask for ya cash
then one day they ask if he one of
the real ones down to ride
gotta put in that work if you ‘bout that life
scarface dreams, pounds of white
and what’s life really worth if we ‘bout to die?

(Rakim) through my travels I try to take righteous steps
(Common) I’m in too deep to sleep
(Rakim) through my travels I try to take righteous steps
right or left could mean life or death
(André 3000) the world’s a stage and everybody got to play their part
God works in mysterious ways

(Verse 2)
so if you really down for the squad
this dude got a gun collection at his spot
he all alone, family out of town
we you just need to drive cuddy, are you down?
they creep slow through the street
wipe down the bullets, load up the heat
puffin’ on bomb, trying to stay calm
but he can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong
and somebody watching
thoughts of the consequence of being made the accomplice
for the get away part he play
he just pray, the cops don incarcerate
as he watching them walk to the door
he thought, what the f*** am I doing this for? don’t know…
right in that instant, he seen the police roll in the distance
he yell po-po!

(Verse 3)
everybody run and jump in the back
drive slow, pray not to see the lights flash
hats off, be cool, let em pass
the cops turn the block and then roll right past
damn, everybody just laughs
back at the house, talk shit, blunts pass
give daps, roll out, he wanna just drive
outta town, he look to the sky
wondering if there’s more to this life
and if all of this karma come with a price
from all of this dirt and people he’s hurting
if life has a purpose, does he deserve it?
he pick up the pen and start writing
he didn’t know this would help him to find it
and stay out that lonely cell
now years later I’m alive with this story to tell
Track Name: Look Inside ft. Annie Sea
(Verse 1)

yeah, I know the pain of waking from a coma over-dosing
now seven years later on this path that I have chosen
I kick it with my fam and I’m the only not smoking
that’s when I start notice, depending on the dosage…
that medicine be poison, sometimes it be the closest
one’s that love you co-dependent, hurt you most, cuz they don’t cope with…
seeing that you changed, stuck up in their ways
but I don’t need your criticism, I don’t need your praise
and I don’t wanna hear if you just speaking cuz you blazed
one day… the next you on other some sh**, blasting stray
guilt trippin’ like I aint do enough for you
but that’s just how you are and I always got love for you
with no conditions, just know I got a mission
and yeah it’s your decision if you choose play the victim
I’m sorry I can’t be the one to take away your stress
it’s on you to choose heal it and I’m wishing you the best, one love

(chorus)
if you look inside and realize
can’t nobody live your life
there’s a path only you can find
if you look inside and realize
can’t nobody live your life
you and I got to do for you and I

(Verse 2)

now I’m living this dream exactly how I wrote it
life’s a trip, flying overseas, I’m high off the aroma
dead sober seven years, I put down that bottle
with no role model, with no pathway to follow
now this world I travel with a mic and a Apollo
stay humble, hustle hard, you know the motto
never caught up in the drama that be consequences of my design
so I’m looking at what I choose what manifest inside
mind staying focused, I know that it’s my time
born leader, yeah aries, so you know that it’s my sign
while followers be trying to throw you off your course
projecting fears, is it mine, is it yours? it’s clear..
I just keep it moving and don’t think I’ll be missing you
got the guidance and I know who to listen to
in this game of fools gold, I be giving jewels
just wanna motivate, those who got a vision too

(Chorus)
Track Name: '77
comin’ up with my team and the city of the P know we…
reppin’ double seven headed to the T-O-P
from the dungeon, family getting Ceelo green
that means pockets stay deeper than Jnco Jeans
moving product and these hip-hop fiends O-D
droppin’ knowledge is the key though and we don’t sleep
dope as kilos, chopped up like a Primo beat
do my thing, stack C-notes, they be low key…
throwing salt in the air, praying that we fallin’ off
but never showing up
it’s like all of y’all are ghosts in my city
yeah we blowin’ up, got a moletov
and give a toast to my city
who set the bar, I raise it up
flying ‘round the world trail blazin’
they just blazin’ up
I can’t relate to what…
they say if they just complain
I don’t think they give they thanks enough, straight up..
stay up out the crab bucket if you comin’ up my brother
work with what you got, double up
there’s 8 million rappers with a dream and we one of em
better know the reason that you hustlin’
my old homie said my music helped him cope with recovering
that’s why I’m putting all my love in it
and still grindin’ like the best of em
they got the methamphetamines, I got the medicine
and middle-finger to gatekeepers who won’t let us in
all they trying to give the people is a sedative
to sleep walk and be a slave to the nemesis
we breaking chains making way for the exodus
out the shadows of the cave, gotta represent
by living proof from the page of my testament
my inner-light be the truth that I bless em wit’
and to these ghost-writer rappers I’m the exorcist
yeah, keep the circle tight with no parasites
I see snake in they eyes… pair of dice
as a youngster all I wanted was a pair of dimes…
and my paradise… now I'm trying to change the paradigm
and I ain’t got no air time on corporations
I ain’t got no caroline
all I got is hustle but don’t carry white
now baggin’ up these prayer ties
call us crazy to change the world but we dare try

(24)
Track Name: Signs of the Times
(André 3000) baby, grab the baby, cause baby, it ain't much time
Mama Earth is tossing and turning and that's a sign
dying and crying because of you

(Verse 1)

America — I’m not living in this lie
land of the native tribe, shadow of the genocide
ain’t hard to see, that since the colonizer brutalized
democracy, is just a system that can prove your lies
bloody hands, clean suit and tie
foolish pride while headed for suicide
why?.. bombs dropping out the sky over Palestine
you paid your taxes now look into that child’s eyes
is that your son or daughter that you see?
or would you say that this price we gotta pay so that we “free”
to this system all the people are commodities
and 20,000 children die every day from poverty
that’s deep, but the part that really bothers me...
it seems most of us think that this the way it gotta be
while the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting less
so tell me who’s next? with their plans in effect
I know it’s hard to take
but living in denial — things will never change

(André 3000) baby, grab the baby, cause baby, it ain't much time
Mama Earth is tossing and turning and that's a sign
Mama Earth is dying and crying because of you


(Verse 2)

can’t nobody live a lie like us
and block out innocent cries, with our eyes wide shut
one nation in a trance, in god we trust
every 4th of July, see the skies light up
while the bombs over Baghdad and over Pakistan
tell me who’s behind the master plan?..
the master hand of the puppet politicians slick talking
all I hear is false prophets and a broken promise
ain’t no real change
these republicrats all be on the same track
just different trains
people got possessions, but they mind enslaved
dreams of armageddon, see the sky in flames
are we supposed to die and just be giving up?
are we supposed to live and just not give a fuck?
and if “keep it real” is what you calling
giving praise to the slave owner’s face on the dollar, I ain’t with it
I’m saying — I believe there’s another option

(18)

(André 3000) she could not take it anymo'
raping her heavenly body like a ho
Mama Earth is dying and crying because of you
baby, grab the baby, cause baby, it ain't much time
Mama Earth is tossing and turning and that's a sign
Track Name: Cold World ft. Adebisi
(Verse 1)

peep the timeline, police kill a black man
pay money to the tax man, to drop bombs on an afghan
while the kids are bustin’ shots, playing call of duty
pretend to be in the military, fighting for the free
now marvin G I gotta ask what’s goin on?
even as a child, I could feel there’s something wrong
now that I have grown I’m trying to comprehend
before a youngster of my own, coming in
gotta find a place that we could call home
before they feel the cold of this world
oh baby girl, please don’t lose ya soul to this world
I want you to see a brighter day
I want you to know there’s more than this
so you will know the right of way
so I will just pray for this world that we leaving for you
people giving up but we gon’ be there for you
cuz there’s a reason for you livin
another world we dreaming for you
for now, in my heart is where I’ll keep it for you

(Hook)

Hold on
you got to hold on
in this cold world
hold on

(Verse 2)

I got no answers only questions
if both sides think they’re righteous
will the road to hell be paved with good intention?
got no facts I’m only guessing, would it be effective…
to fight ‘em with the weapons they invented?
I can feel the tension, every time I give attention
to the time line that downloads into my mind, all by design
so divisive feeding in my vices, social media be
streaming freely, but I wonder what the price is
is this the way that life is, living in a society of sickness
where you gotta be sick to fit in, oppressor or the victim
where false idols shout loud and God whisper
I’m learning how to filter and learning how to listen
and what I choose to give attention to is my decision
if I turn it off, and look inside, will I find the wisdom?
beyond the definitions of division we been given
another world is calling, tell me what’s your vision
Track Name: Guidance ft. Nafisaria
(Verse 1)

reminiscing as a child plagued with premonition
recognize the signs, they say it’s superstition
there’s a fine line between curse and a vision
learned to find mine for this purpose I been given
looking into the eye of the heart of the spirits that be watching me
I know that this life is my odyssey
I been guided and I’m grateful that you walk with me
through the fire, I trust the plan that yal’ can see
still the shadows of my past be trying to follow me
but I accept it as a part of me
I know the heart in me, love with the armory
judgement of this world don’t belong to me
get it out of me so it don’t harden me
finally be healing up these scars
so I can hear your wisdom like I knew it all along
navigate this journey prepared for what’s to come
I put down my weapons but the battle just begun

(Hook)

ooooh I feel the battle's just begun
ooohhh though I’m here, I know we’re one
so I pray I can listen
knowing to keep my faith in you… in you

(verse 2)

and now I’m just a man without a home
they say the measure of the man is by the miles he gone
many crossroads have passed that lead to sacred ground
many lost souls don’t last
dancing with these sacred clowns, hypnotized
now do you see the truth in the game?
do you see the beauty in the pain of the sacrifice?
they’ll stab your back then gas you up like exxon
better get a vest on and find protection
for when it’s feeling like too much
I say that to say that I’m grateful to know who I can trust
in other worlds, somewhere in between the message
energy intention, reality and dreams
manifested, credit to the blessing
remember stay connected to my heart, that’s the essence
my destiny been written in these pages and my life is the test
dried the ink in my pen so I freestyled the rest

(Hook)

ooooh I feel the battle's just begun
ooohhh though I’m here, I know we’re one
so I pray I can listen
knowing to keep my faith in you… in you
Track Name: Rain Over Babylon
(verse 1)
coming up from the underground, seen the world turned upside down
lightning crack thunder sound, the weight feel like 5 hundred pounds
dark age of a thousand years, where the people still live in fear
fuel the greed and desire, the white race misuse the fire
first the spark, then the flame, then the atom bomb that rained
from the sky on Japan, world domination, that plan
been in the works, set up control, but truth is
what the future holds no one knows, humanity at the crossroads
better be watching our step, mother earth we making her sweat (hot)
life’s goes on, but the virus must be cleansed, bet
the so-called “civilized” ‘aint ready
better recognize what’s petty and what matters that survival of my family
can’t be hooked to the mental narcotic, fiber optic, feeding our energy
attention, we are the product, of the realest hologram perception
I been sent to tell you raise ya muthaf***** hands

(Hook)
and stand up for what you believe
or be a slave in the mind in the land of the free
just another day in babylon until it rains
what is it going to take us to wake up, in times of change?

(verse 2)
stay tuned, coming soon to theaters near you…
destruction of humanity, saved by technology
that’s a red flag of the blue bloods saying go green on a bluetooth
black magic looking so beautiful when it seduce you
hypnotized by all the screens in the matrix field of dreams
simulated fantasy, don’t think, just be a battery
on a nine-to-5, another clone, hive mind, honey comb
keeping it G-M-O, vibrations stay so low
like we walking around in a coma, what type of sh** are we on?
this that brave new world soma, the only reality that we know
they don’t need no cameras when the camera is all in your phone
they don’t need no prison guard when the prison is all in your dome
I see it I call it, but change coming, no way to stop
this system falling under it’s own dead weight, hollowed from inside
your stock is worth nothing when electronic grids shut off
if we don’t respect our holy mother earth we get cut off
yeah…

(Hook)
better stand up for what you believe
or be a slave in the mind in the land of the free
just another day in babylon until it rains
what is it going to take us to wake up, in times of change?
Track Name: Fade To A Memory ft. Bella Jolie
(verse 1)
I just wanted loyalty, she just want commitment
I just want a rider, she just want the tickets
I just wanna see the world, manifest the vision
she just going with the flow, feeling my ambition
‘cuz opposites attract, how we met was synchronistic
but now it’s like our timing’s off, and we so different
I’m on the road, trying to grind for my goals
and I wonder if her highs are worth her lows
in the lab trying to focus, hit with accusations
feeding off the drama, so I aint tryin to play this
I just wanted something real, now I wonder if it’s there
fixated on the image, did we live it just to share?
let you in my home, now it’s cold on the side where she laid
just another twenty-four and this story fade away
guess I’ll never know, but wonder why she came so fast
but the pain leaves so slow

(hook)
I don’t know why we play these games
and I dunno why, I let you in my world
just to watch it fade away
I don’t know why we play these games
guess we’ll let this be, another memory
so quick to fade away

(Verse 2)
sometimes I forget that…
this some type of game and it’s not the one I’m best at
looking back I confess, my heart… wan’t really in it
trying to win a queen like a chess match
funny she be jockin’ me when I don’t text back
she just want attention, right up until she get that
what we want we can’t have, maybe that’s the dichotomy
afraid to leave the past that’s the self-fulfilling prophecy
and I dunno if you can play this game with honesty
the more she got to know all of me, she seen the flaws in me
probably she just want the image that she saw in me
but she don’t like my posts no more, she unfollowed me
it’s all good, I just thought that you should know
that I thought you something special and I thought that we could grow
but I know, but just the way it’s meant to be
like your timeline, quick to fade into a memory

(hook)
I don’t know why we play these games
and I dunno why, I let you in my world
just to watch it fade away
I don’t know why we play these games
guess we’ll let this be, another memory
so quick to fade away
Track Name: In This World
(hook)

somewhere overseas, I fly alone
all I got is dreams and a microphone

living through the music gotta give my all 
find my place in this world… I don’t belong


(verse 1)

I been longing for a queen wit me, on the throne 
but for now I let my heart be my only home
seeking healing and forgiveness and to right my wrongs
feel my destiny is calling gotta write my song 
let the journey unfold, stay in my zone
stay patient, listen close to what I’ve always known
to calm the inner conflict of longing for a love that’s sacred
but stay moving with a hustler’s nature, trying to make it
but the definition keep on changing
aint got a label, it’s more than entertainment, I’m trail blazin
this road with no vacation 
no recognition I deserve but I stay patient
with desires my ego an my spirit, I walk that fine line
trying to make it so they both co-sign it or go loco to find it
this world got my soul so divided 
type of pressure that mold coal to diamond

(hook)

(verse 2)
it’s been a long time coming from sleeping in my cutlass
feeling like there’s no one I could trust in
but give thanks that my skin got toughened
so I can keep the hate out now I’m trying to let the love in
and let the past be and decomposed
put it all in these redemption songs we compose
see Creator got the plan and it’s a need to know… basis
I blaze mics to make your speakers blow
studied game and learned the secret codes
don’t just do this for the fame, but so the people know
I see another world, people say I’m dreaming though
I keep on going and speaking in these freedom tones
translated from my heart to make a decent song
everyday I’m working hard for all the seeds to grow
so I package up my harvest, now it’s legal though
and I’m hustling my product ’til it reach ya soul

(hook)

somewhere overseas, I fly alone
all I got is dreams and a microphone

living through the music gotta give my all 
find my place in this world… I finally belong
