Track Name: Njoy the Intro
Yeah I’m out that Tribeca
Now I live in Brooklyn
The city it is my mecca
I recognize that the eyes that’re looking at the lines and the hooks in my rhymes in my books been reading like Ruxbin
Teddy Grahams
steady hands
ready fam?
any man fuxin
or fixin to mix with this magician will just be gone like fishin
I’m the Juan like Dixon
Listen, fiction isn’t my mission
i don’t make spread sheets on excel
but I excel at making beds squeak well
and when I do spread sheets I use a new technique.
A few heads seem to be confused at me.
I'm a dude that speaks about the truth plenty.
My room's empty just a few stems, seeds
I've got a window with a view that's sweet
Got a blue red streak
see through legs, knees, heads need twenties when they sittin on chrome
Bentleys, man please I be sittin at home
In will-i-amsburg
They call me clark kent avenue
(are you bein real?) I am sir
I step into the DJ Booth pull off my suit in a frenzy
emerge as a superhero emcee
I’m super flavor man, my suit has got some tapered pants
I got a laser made of razors and I keep it stashed
Nah there’s no weapons in my arsenal just persons who report to me so I can thwart the evil, nothing personal
I’m burstin bubbles trouble’s in trouble I’ll make em struggle and what’ll become of all the clowns who really hate to juggle positives and negatives
I’m the one who begs to live
Talking’s so repetitive so sedatives’re what medics give
It’s 360 for me I move with these degrees I choose simply to be a new form of pedigree
even your pet agrees I got the world begging me to set em free I hold the key to the f-u-t-u-r-e
you are me
shit, there’s a new army
and I’m the admiral holding you up but still got 2 arms free
now that’s admirable but i’m too defiant to just keep flying while I’m laughing passing ya’ll who keep crying
like little Michelle
Stephanie, or DJ Booth, table, stool seat me anywhere I’m easy
Put it on replay
I’m open and hoping for someone to show me the ropes with no delay
What the hell did he say?
Nothing that was cliché
i never decay or betray facts
I never wear DK or TJ Max
How much that cost on ebay? Quince?
Please say we say
That’s not what you think I’m doin screwin with my free time
I’m Patrick Jewing chewing on some key lime
Pie squared
I’m there monfreir
Don’t you even go there
Me without a mic is like a seat without a chair
And I repeat that I don’t care because I’m here just to share
So njoy
With no “e”
It’s no free
But so be it
It’s no secret
But be quiet anyway
Shouts to my sister jenny, yay

(v1)
My mom named me Jesse
Hebrew for emcee
Majestic since birth
Quick as a jet ski
I was home and ingesting
No milk, just words
What a fine blessing
To be raised so well
Rays of light even when I raised hell
Razor sharp was a phrase I knew well
My reign was inevitable, never to fail
Then I got older, by the age of one
“Crawlin!”
I was dangerous
Met a girl named Rap, it became a crush
The rest of the world seemed lame to us
So lame to us, it’s so lame to us
The whole entire planet was a game to just be played on so I stayed on my course
No chores, just bars, sharp darts and metaphors

(Hook)
Eyes opened wide
But you can’t see me
If I was your guide
Still can’t see me
Might if you tried
No, you can’t see me
Leave your mind petrified
You can’t see me
x2

(v2)
Mom named me Abrahammerhead shark
Jaws so sharp that I gnawed on bark at the doggon park and I crawled on shards of glass so fast that I never got scarred
Never got taught never got smart
Teachers tried to reach me but they never got far
In Hebrew school when I was eight my teacher tried to tell me that God was everything
I raised my little hand and said, “How can that be?
God’s not stupid, God’s not mean.”
“God’s flawless, perfect and great. He makes everything.”
“Does he make mistakes?”
You can’t teach me about God
That’s not something I can learn from the outside
No doubt.
Now what do I shout?
If it’s not from within it’s without

(Hook)
Eyes opened wide
But you can’t see me
If I was your guide
Still can’t see me
Might if you tried
No, you can’t see me
Leave your mind petrified
You can’t see me

I invented clapping
I invented snapping
I invented
I invented kissing
I invented wishing

I invented lying
I invented dying

I invented freshness
I invented questions
I invented
I invented water
I invented slaughter
I invented
I invented walking
I invented talking
I invented
I invented melting
I invented helping
I invented language
I invented anguish
I invented smiles
I invented style
I invented frying pans and drying fans and buying plans
I’m spiderman on vitamins
I’m spiderman on vitamins
I’m spiderman on vitamins
I’m spiderman on vitamins

But you can’t see me
Still can’t see me
No, you can’t see me
You can’t see me

(v3)
So my last name’s Hartman
Man of the heart
And my plan from the start was to stand out apart from the bland and depart from the land and the stars I’m a one-man caravan.
Clan? Not a part.
I float so free
Mother Nature & Father Time had a baby named me
I was born in BC and I live in AD
20/20 vision? I see in HD
I spit my LMNOPs back in elementary
Broke the record for consecutive sheckets when I was three
I guess I could explain what that means
But I never feel the need to clarify speech
It would leave you terrified if ever I preach
Never irate cuz I’m always irie
JAH the initials written on my diary
If I’m not inspiring then I’m retiring

(Hook)
Eyes opened wide
But you can’t see me
If I was your guide
Still can’t see me
Might if you tried
No, you can’t see me
Leave your mind petrified
You can’t see me

Track Name: One Day ft. Eric Sosa
(v1)

I drink a shot of pain
a glass of death
a death of glass
back in Nazareth we
we pass the test we
we ask for less, we turn the cheek with merit, we inherit
spirit and the free
the mirror is the miracle the nearer we would be
if fearing the empirical's comparable to weak
so lyrical we speak
if literal you seek, you thought you sought the wrong route
talkin bout everything my mind ever thought about
blocking out, blacking out, cracking down now I'm
like lightning and thundering
not tightening my dungarees
it's frightening to wonder who is underneath
my writing
it's nobody
my mind is mine
and I'm inclined to shine bright as fire, I'm tryin to find my own design
so behind time I noticed I'm focused on the climb
The world is round
So up is out
I heard a sound
Love is shouting, screaming dreaming bout a breathing demon, I'm beaming light
seeming bright
need to be breathing steam if I'm redeeming my

(Hook - Eric Sosa)
Mind, I think that I can
Redeeming my soul
I feel that I will
You ain't have to listen
I know who I am
Can't nobody tell me different, wouldn't change it for a mill
I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day
I'll pro'ly grow
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day

(bridge)
One day will it come x3
One day

(v2)
Will come sooner than you think
Sooner than you blink
So pour all the rumors down the sink and
look at yourself in the vanity
Shelved in your sanity
Don't let yourself melt in a pan of greed
In a pot of hate
I got a lot to say
So I approach is like it's corporate, and it's not for play
If I ain't focused, put a fork in it, and not the steak
See I just noticed it's the cautions that I got to take
A battle from within
Beefin from a distance
Like I have to win if I speak it into existence
Why would a fool be avoiding if a disc could sell
Tired of the bullshit with a toilet as a wishin well
So I demand that you stop killin his dreams
Standin on the rooftop of a building in Queens
Squintin while I'm cookin up the Cuban
I ain't lookin for the man in me
I found that
I'm lookin for the human

(Hook - Eric Sosa)
Mind, I think that I can
Redeeming my soul
I feel that I will
You ain't have to listen
I know who I am
Can't nobody tell me different, wouldn't change it for a mill
I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day
I'll pro'ly grow
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day

(v3)
Everything I do is rock n roll
Everytime I think I've got control
Turns out ink doesn't got a soul
I don't know how to go from normal all the way back to radical
Static or havoc, it's a habit, tragic is magical
A biblical sabbatical
Seven days, seven years, ok then will I have it?
Novocain's saying "no" to pain
Plain days aggravate
Sane ways agitate
Can you imagine it?
a castaway
My stomach's knotted
Even if I passed away I'd have to say the summit's rotted
Cuz that is not it
I'm searching for a paragon
If I am gone & you are gone, there, that's a pair of gones
A marathon
Let's walk it out
Love, vibrations
That's what I'm talking bout
Fats Waller nodding out
On the train, riding round
Sight and sound, they might abound, but might is trite if it's not profound
I'm antilost
Why can't I cross Kate Moss with weight loss?
I hate when you say "pause"
There's only none
The holy sun
Amongst a clan of bullets
Standing is a lonely gun

(Hook - Eric Sosa)
Mind, I think that I can
Redeeming my soul
I feel that I will
You ain't have to listen
I know who I am
Can't nobody tell me different, wouldn't change it for a mill
I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I ain't givin up
Mind, body, soul
Said I ain't givin up my
Mind, body, soul
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day
I'll pro'ly grow
I'll be good one day, I'll be good one day
Track Name: Play On
(v1)
And so I felt that,
I could melt that ice that had sheltered round my little heart
At age ten was dealt some brittle cards
So I looked to women to warm me up
I put a note in her cubby
"i think I like like you, if you like like me check the box next to yes and we could be tight"
she said, "Yes"
Success!
I was quite hyped
it’s the fifth grade
I was Adam, she’s my rib cage
I was an atom, she’s the membrane
I wasn’t that obsessed with slap bracelets
Ok, yes I was, and yes I had braces
I even fronted like I cared about stickers
Fuzzies and oilies, the girls were all about em
At lunch my table was always crowded
“Watch me spin this dreidle,” I shouted

(hook)
if music be the food of love, then play on

(v2)
I got older
Writing this girl’s name on my folder
I told her the same thing I tell you
And that’s everything
Writing poetry so she notice me hopefully
Girls getting bagged like groceries
But to me that ain’t the way that it’s supposed to be
Introduced my best friend to the love of my life
And then they started dating, and it fucked up my life For a minute became a bit of a cynic
Wasn’t in it to win it
And I dressed like Dennis the Menace on the Apprentice if he was playing tennis against a dentist in Venice,
ok now I’m exaggerating a tad
Graduatin from masterbating was rad
The fascination of imagination had passed
But my high school was frightful
the vibe, it was sad
And college?
I think you’ve heard enough about that

(hook)
if music be the food of love, then play on
x8

(v3)
If love is blind then I was Hellen Keller
Or Anne Frank,
a cellar dweller hiding from independence
For years she seemed so heaven sent
But it was evident that merriment was missing
we were each other’s medicine and vision,
I stayed reticent and wishing
That we would be the couple that I knew we could be
She was megan, we grew equally
But we also grew apart
sayin "peace" isn’t easy
but, shit, sometimes it’s gotta happen
This was round the time that I started hitting stages
Now girls approachin me as if I was rich and famous
But the fact is I was still switching phases
An ignoramus, now I’m playin the field
I’m just playin a game, these girls playin for real
Maybe ain’t the way it should be just the way that I feel
it's like

(hook)
if music be the food of love, then play on

Track Name: Connections ft. Jeanette Berry
(v1)
I heard you said that you alone
You at home in your bed, it’s not true at all
You know feelings of dread, they run through us all
You see them obstacles, run through em all
Yeah, screw a wall
Nothing can hold me back
Show me that stranger and I’ll show you homies that know me for a minute, a second, a friggin moment
we own it,
our eyes are moldin
we zonin
ain’t no alone
and we knowin the culture’s growing
ain’t nothing slowin
it’s 4 in the morning,
and I still want the microphone and I’m still goin in
Ok, if you got a towel then you throw it in
Ok, if you got a scowl time to grow a grin
No pretending, sentence relentless
it goes unmentioned
unless if it’s in a sense of suspension you learn a lesson no matter the session
We all connected like tetris etcetera
literally
I’m you
you’re me
We're connected

(hook)
there may be moments when you feel alone, it's true
life might not be on time
i'll always do the best for you
believe in trust, that's just the way we do

(v2)
I don’t believe in a paradox
Some people imitate the same way a parrot talks
I come correct with more props than Carrot Top
I’m a triceratops
my nonsense never stops
you think your life is different?
whether rabbi or reverend
you know we're all connected
I hear all your suggestions
Say you wanna hear me rappin slow
Here we go now with the crack free flow
Givin me questions back and forth
What in the world are you askin for?
In Orlando like a Backstreet bro
No doja in your dojo?
Oh no – yo
Crows in Dumbo seen a elephant fly
Can't tell if he’s a mellow or intelligent guy
I play the cello smooth as Caramellos in the sky
With propellers and elevators and escalators I’m so hiiiiiiiii mom
Yeah she’s chillin with me too on this planet that I’m on


Let your spirit shine
(Let your spirit shine)
Through the darkest time
(Through the darkest time)
We've all been there before
And we're worth so much more

(bridge)
When we’re apart we’re still a part of each other
When we’re apart we’re still a part of each other
When we’re apart we’re still a part of each other
When we’re apart
A part a part a part

(v3)
A part of me is inside you
Hard to see but it is true
Pardon me for partially imparting thoughts original
It’s critical to listen to ideas that aren’t visible
We’re indivisible
I know the ritual’s dismissing new or different -
Ain’t nobody different
What’re you sniffin?
Whatchu been piffin?
Actually the fact is no matter what is the pattern of Saturn they’re only manners of action you know we’re scattered like scrabble pieces, unleashing the thesis, Jesus, nephews or nieces, we as cohesive as pieces of pizza greases onto a napkin
So what happens when laughin is viewed as a distraction
When it’s a sign of passion
There’s no maskin the fact that we’re one in the same
You mumble my name
The same thing as sayin your own
Deviations blow away in the cold
Breakin the mold is what I’m doin
you and me we ain’t so different

(hook - Jeanette Berry)
there may be moments when you feel alone, it's true

Track Name: The Moment
(v1)
I could run with you
I could roll with you
I could rock with you
Walk the dog for you
Stop to talk to you
Block the block for you
And I won’t stop till that beat drops
You could see in me
Breathe so easily
Speak so peacefully
Please to meet ya we’ve greeted recently
Tweeted frequently
And I won’t stop till that beat drops
Like some Reeboks
I’m so classic
I make ya knees knock
I’m so nasty
Classy, doin gymnastics for practice
I’m bombastic
Enthusiastic
Crem de la crem, them fools you be passin
They made of plastic
i’m organic
they so frantic, see how they flock?
and I won’t stop till that beats drops

(hook)
I be up on it
That’s how I like it
Grab the microphone and
that’s how I ride it
That’s how I write it
I write about the moment
I’m on it
Yeeeaaahhhh

(v2)
I can make your day
Stay awake and play
Jake the snake was a fake, I’m A-OK
You can take away
Say no way, Jose
Cuz I won’t stop till that beat drops
We could run away
Two is one today
Speakin in tongues only we understand
We could be in wonderland
But I won’t stop till that beat drops
You know you need not worry
You’re worthy
Like James, your game’s filled with strength and flurries of furious action
Scurrying fast and
most can’t imagine the passion you have and we never be a fraction
We all of it
Yes we all love it
and they can tell we ain’t askin, we grabbin, we have to have satisfaction
and we won’t stop till that beat drops

(hook)
I be up on it
That’s how I like it
Grab the microphone and
That’s how I ride it
That’s how I write it
I write about the moment
I’m on it
Yeeeaaahhhh

(v3)
at times people say that I’m a crazy guy
cuz I don’t have a pair of khakis or a navy tie
people look at me and think, “oh, he may be high”
make no mistake, I could motivate a lazy eye
I stay inside
You could say that I’m a home addict
Chillin in my cold addict
I’m never nomadic
more bounce to the ounce, nope, never no static
And I won’t stop till that beat drops
So dramatic
Like a soldier, I told ya
no traumatic’s gonna slow the composure
Flow emphatically
ecstatically
got a text from my ex i was glad to see
it ain’t a tragedy, factually we flourished
morris less like Zachary
less is more
I’m deep like a reservoir
I think it’s time for the hook
Oh yes of course

(hook)
I be up on it
That’s how I like it
Grab the microphone and
that’s how I ride it
That’s how I write it
I write about the moment
I’m on it
Yeeeaaahhhh

(v4)
I could run with you
I could roll with you
I could rock with you
Walk the dog for you
Stop to talk to you
Block the block for you

Speak so peacefully

Track Name: Words Past The Margin ft. Blu
(verse 1)
When I told em I’m a pugilist
They ain’t argue
They just said, “What’s a pugilist?”
Like I’m new to this ruthlessness
Like a novice in the office who the bosses call a tuna fish
He’s a nudist jewish buddhist who is scrupulous
Mutinous mutant whose students would say is ludicrous
They said his humor is just foolishness
As a emcee he’s empty as a stewardess’ uterus
They said his vocab is superfluous
He’ll never murder the scene in the city like
David Berkowitz
And that’s the Son of Sam
He’s just a son of Sand
And I seen him do the running man at summer jam
He’s that J-E-S to the S-E-A-B-R-A-H-A-M to PM
Yeah so maybe if you investigate you will find truth behind what he’s sayin

(verse 3)
They say the best things in life are free
I say the best things in life aren’t things
Honestly what bothers me is modern people’s constant need of modesty, debauchery, technology and posturing
It’s got me pondering how they could think they’re honoring the genre it’s a mockery, it’s nonsense so there’s gotta be a confidence inside of me
Providence and prophecy
Consciously demolishing the policies of poverty with colonies of prodigies
Novelties and oddities
My qualities are arguably the hardest thing since broccoli for wannabes to swallow
They wallow in their wallabies
“Socrates philosphies?” chill, it ain’t 93 -
I ain’t tryin a be a nominee
I made bread and built a house
Ain’t livin in no cottage cheese
So check my velocity
My wattage is a problem, it’s an audible atrocity
Track Name: Written While Sittin' On A Hammock
(v1)
You could pro’lly catch me runnin at a fast pace coming outa last place loving in the rat race
Becoming a giraffe takes growth & I don’t lack faith nope I never lactate
Heart inside a glass case, never pressing backspace, straighter than a back brace
I don’t have a masked face, read it on a faxed page, you should get your facts straight
All I do is embrace, love the way a stem tastes, taller than Dikembe
Never mind what your friends say, you aren’t in 10th grade, you can be a sensei
You can eat some tempeh every single Wednesday, ok? Comprende?
I don’t need no ash trays, I ain’t getting cats spayed, I don’t go to cafes
All I say is

(Hook)
You want it
You got it
You get it
You need to feed it (x4)
You saw it
You plotted
You hit it
You need to feed it (x4)

(v2)
You can be an outcast, you can even outlast a bombastic bomb blast
The future will be long past time could move so darn fast you’ll be like, “it’s gone? dag”
Foreal, it is beyond flash, life is like a long dash be nice to your mom & dad
Drink out of a brown bag, think of a profound fact, blink and never doubt that
That is just my advice, I’ve never had head lice, I like to eat bread slice-s
I remember Greg Nice, music was my friend I used to listen in silence
Then the truth it fled, “bye”, everything I read twice, ok what’s ahead? I is
Open up and spread wide, I ain’t talking legs I’m talkin bout your head’s eyelids

(Hook)
You want it
You got it
You get it
You need to feed it (x4)
You saw it
You plotted
You hit it
You need to feed it (x4)

(v3)
Whether you’re Latino or you’re from Tokyo, Rio or from Reno
You are my amigo, everyone, all people, sorry to sound emo
I eat jalepenos, you go to casinos, and you went through some chemo
We are all the same though, me and Galileo, we all count 2, 3, 4
Life is like a free throw, looking through the key hole, everyone is Neo
I am finding Nimo, swimming in the free flow, bring me home like depot
Everywhere that we go, everything that we know this song is bout your ego
this song is bout your ego, this song is bout your ego, this song is bout your ego, so we go

(Hook)
You want it
You got it
You get it
You need to feed it (x4)
You saw it
You plotted
You hit it
You need to feed it (x4)
Track Name: Figure It Out ft. Fresh Daily
(v1)
Holla back if you can figure it out
Hollow facts make me bicker and shout
Although that’s what we’re livin in now
We’re driven to be givin ribbons if we’re fiction and foul
It’s got me livin in doubt and my mission’s about the transition of wishin that vision wasn’t a cloud of dozens of clowns mumbling sounds they built a pile made of style
Then it all came crumbling down
I’m wonderin now I’m tryin to find a reliable viable person who is desirable maybe like Lion-O it’s undeniable I’m excitable when I try to pull
An idol who rivals definable features
It seems I’m tired of teachers
Who scream, “I am prestigious!”
Obscene, highly egregious
Cuz they should be trying to reach us
Your genius is your weakness
Just be trust, and lead us
So follow back if you live in the now
Not talking twitter
I’m talking bigger pictures ya now?!

(hook - Fresh Daily)
It's on
And life keeps goin, on
Them lights keep glowin, strong
But what're we all here for?
But what're we all here for? (x2)

Holla back if you can figure it out
(x4)

(v2 - Fresh Daily)
Holla back if you can figure it out
This great mystery what livin's about
I'm too old to be livin in doubt
The sky's the limit and I live in the clouds
A pure spirit if you hearin me out
No gimmicks in this human experience that we livin in
For me it's all peace, no beef like vegetarians
You attain that frame of brain, you see how clear it is
Therein lies the key to what makes life mysterious
But really it's no secret, if need be reach deeper
Me, on each beat, I freak beats and speak ether
Jesse ain't an elitist, and me either
So we combine rhymes and climb high on each speaker
As lyricists our theory is findin answers
You ain't kickin what they feel, you might as well be rhymin backwards
This human existence I haven't mastered
Tryin to define that line between cryin and laughter
like

(hook - Fresh Daily)
It's on
And life keeps goin, on
Them lights keep glowin, strong
But what're we all here for?
But what're we all here for? (x2)

Holla back if you can figure it out
(x4)

(Bridge)
So whatcha sayin, huh?
(x16)

(v3)
Holla back
Have some challah, I’ll have half
Hallucinations in Holland
A holy holograph
Hallelujah
Holidays they all go fast
Hollandaise and halibut are all just but a hologram
I have a halo
It keeps me safe in case there’s hail or Hailey’s comet fails and plummets to the earth, I’ll feel a rainbow
I never say no
Unless they ask me on a game show
If there's Barbarians out in Barbados.
As a kid my mom said, “You wanna play with plato?" (no)
"Not the toy, the philosopher.”
“Why didn’t you say so?”
I ain’t no plain old lame-o John Stamos gone famous
My aim is hiatus I ignore an ignoramus
I excel like Chino; I’m a bambino
I could start a generation with the mayo from my juevos
My rhymes are like my babies cuz they help me elevate
I sell a brat then I celebrate

(hook - Fresh Daily)
It's on
And life keeps goin, on
Them lights keep glowin, strong
But what're we all here for?
But what're we all here for? (x4)
Track Name: I Wanna Hear Y'all
(v1)
I’m being honest
I’m the bee in your bonnet
I’m beyond bein appeasing I ain’t bein ironic
A busy bee I’m the bees knees
I leave felines pleased as punch
Cats catch the sonic boom
boom or bam bam
Blast from the past
Like blues clue or van dam
Cat’s out the bag
I zoom through like Grand Ams
It's true you are Ham fans
From YouTube or Rubix Cubes, view my grand slam
Graham was a cracker I’m more like Betty Crocker
not a actor with an angle, protractor
no doctor
no tractor no opera no factor no copper
I’m the lowest common fact or fiction I’m improper
Like a fraction with friction I’m magic with diction
I’m practically flippin phonics backwards
rippin and robbin
Rockin and rollin stopping the strollin
My rhymes gotchu pausing often like commas and colons

(hook)
Hey - Have you got some to say?
Go ahead I’m listening
Please do not be afraid
I wanna hear y’all
Yo - Where did your voices go?
Let’s all enjoy the show
Boise’s in Idaho
I wanna hear y’all

(v2)
A bird in the hand’s worth two in the bush
I know you're workin with hands, jerkin, lurkin after tush
For certain, you stand for purple and kush
I’m workin, my purpose is perfect circular hush puppies and yuppies are lucky to touch me
Most groupies are pudgy or droopy, ugly and yucky
Like puddie it’s silly, but really it’s funny
A Millie Vanilli Philly’s only filling for dummies
Just a dead ringer like a phone on vibrate
I’m irate like old folks watchin Elvis gyrate
So dilate, pupil, you a carbon copy
Savin rhymes on a disc whether hard or floppy
Sloppy Joe's don’t feed me,
I’m eating flows and beats, speaking and havoc I’m wreaking
whether it’s fact or it’s feces
Rap can appear to be easy actually that’s deceiving

(hook)
Hey - Have you got some to say?
Go ahead I’m listening
Please do not be afraid
I wanna hear y’all

Let’s all enjoy the show
Boise’s in Idaho

(v3)
I’m stackin a bag and attachin it with the shit that I got
if you’re lackin a sack then match me every hit for a shot
I’m thinking about the plan, you’re handin your stamina to me
your energy was spent for free, I got a camera close to me
psyche, is this supposed to be a life with no potency?
my focus was hocus pocus now I suppose the joke is me
the doom is growin like tumors and showin that humor is just a rumor
all the villains are killin and spillin the blood of all these baby boomers
20 years of my life was spent hidin behind lies
But now I’m bringing it back to facts, bitch, my rhymes never die
my mind’s feverish, I had a seizure twitch
rather be feared or respected?
you ain’t neither, shit
this rhymes leisure, it’s nothin for me to be spittin
every lyric you rip is something doesn’t need to be written
Y’all wanna party
Ain’t listening hardly
I’m an artiste
Everything I think, it gets RTed

(hook)

Track Name: Always & Forever ft. Homeboy Sandman
(verse 1)
I’m just a boat
Floating on the sea
The waves wave at me
I wait patiently
For wind to push my sail even though it’s always happening
No man’s an island but everyone’s a captain
This water’s infinite but once I’m divin into it
I intuitively become too intimate –
Artillery is artistry; it’s all ammo here
i’m swimming in my arteries my hands hold fear
so I’m sinking in this part of me
thinking that it’s hard to be on varsity
listening with Van Gogh’s ear
should I - pull the plug and let the water down the drain
empty out this ocean of devotion, emotion and pain
my mouth is watering
but blood is thicker than the picture that you picture when you drown your tears in liquor
i’m a swimmer in tsunamis
a swami in this slaughter
the story that I tell is of hell and high water it’s

(verse 2)
did you know that I grew up to believe that writin a novel isn’t novel
i’m full of awe but never awful
rofl
all full of water is my ship
I fall off of the lip of the cliff taking notes as I drift
lift and raise my sail to no avail
so available I write with no veil so frail is my flow
I stay warm though
Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
Might the yoke from in a egg turn slow
To a nectar
And then petrol
Patrol the tides and control the mast
Cajole the masses amassed outside
I’m a ship in this mist even if I’m dismissed by business or listlessness
I exist
amidst the richness of quickness and imprints of figment princes
I swim in pigment
It’s just
Track Name: Ridiculous
(hook)
What am I supposed to do?
I’m tryin to get close to you
but my posing is over
I’m toasted but I’m sober
And I might get ridiculous
x2

(v1)
Get with us when we walk right through the door
I’m cocky to the core cuz I’m rocking new velour
it’s shocking cuz I swore that I’m not suited for a suit that’s in the store
but I got booted before from a club, they said I looked too comfortable
I didn’t realize I’m supposed to be uncomfortable
I could pump you full of tales from my past
the disasters I’ve had acting brash but I’ll pass
now at last in the spot, I got my last shot
I flash what I got and I ask for a spot in the VIP
I know that I’m not VIP
But my style cannot be copied
In my head I am the top seed
what I need is a bottle, then I’ll look distinguished
talking to some models who can’t speak English
sing this song, and ring the alarm
where’s the after party could you bring me along?

(hook)
What am I supposed to do?
I’m tryin to get close to you
but my posing is over
I’m toasted but I’m sober
And I might get ridiculous
x2

(v2)
Now the spot is crazy hot
Almost time to smoke this haze I got
But this ain’t Dazed and Confused
Misbehavin is rude and I’m a nice gentleman
At least tonight, my plan is to settle any beef that’s unnecessary
keep it clean
We don’t want 5.0 to have to peep the scene
but I might need caffeine cuz I didn’t eat my greens
all I had for dinner was a frozen Lean Cuisine
it’s insane how the flowing’s still goin
we won’t throw in the towel till morning
don’t know what time it is, it’s so complex
You never wear your Rolex when you roll on ex
but I ain’t got no diamonds, flossin or shinin
You won’t see me crossing that line into the player zone
Cuz I’m a stay my own until my days are gone
What you waitin on?
Who you got on your team?
I support the youth like I’m protein
yeah

(hook)
What am I supposed to do?
I’m tryin to get close to you
but my posing is over

(v3)
so the next day you wake up, and the clock reads three
your reflection in the mirror makes a mockery
your face is rocking a crease
you think to yourself, “hey, yo, stop being weak”
you spent most of the night smoking broccoli, at least
humble is born, cocky’s deceased
cuffed up nights lead to gritty days
the city way of life is getting blazed
your life has become nothing more than a spoof
that’s replacing your youth with the face of a dude who is hasty and rude
now you’re burnt out
your girl’s concerned about your sperm count
drugs and beers by the dozen
hear my discussion of fearing and fussin
we are accustomed to see our disgusting actions, and we call it fashion
imagine, singin bout not being wasted
take this song, copy and paste it

(hook)
What am I supposed to do?
I’m tryin to get close to you
but my posing is over
I’m toasted but I’m sober
And I might get ridiculous

Track Name: Life is a Free Throw (remix) ft. Marquis Daniels
(v1)
Under fire cuz my style is undefined
I don’t wonder why, nevermind, I’m just stayin true
Unrefined all the while I’m inclined
Never slumber til I’m underground, coffin like the flu
Often what I do troubles you
Utter through the top of my mind while y’all plottin like a coup
But I don’t gotta think about I just be about it, I should be up outta here from talking like I do

(hook)
Life is a free throw
And I tell them all the same
it isn’t a game
ain’t nobody standin in your way
Life is a free throw
And you ain’t really gotta search for what you deserve
Long as you work, you’re gonna earn
Life is a free throw
Every time I turn around somebody’s throwin a pound
the value’s going down
Life is a free throw
But I don’t let it bother me
I keep movin logically
Ain’t nobody stopping me
Life is a free throw

(v2)
Ain’t no stayin the same or fadin away, just sayin my name
I’m changing the aim and aiming for fame, psyche, I’m just playin a game
Makin a change and I’m breakin away
Cookin tomorrow and bakin today
What can I say?
Stuck in a phase
Arts & crafts
Paper mache
You could see me writin poems at my home like I’m homer
Not Simpson, that’s a misnomer
Think I miss homework?
No sir
I’m Icarus, closer to the sun than most are
I don’t need a postmark on my letters
I don’t need a loan shark, lendin money to my creditors
Editing my editors
Sentencing the predators
Sentences and characters and references to senators
No Clay Davis
Thou shalt remain nameless
I stay gracious
Over plates I say graces
Your aim’s heinous
Shame on your playlist
Loquacious with statements I say that this

(hook)
Life is a free throw
And I tell them all the same
it isn’t a game
ain’t nobody standin in your way
Life is a free throw
And you ain’t really gotta search for what you deserve
Long as you work, you’re gonna earn
Life is a free throw
Every time I turn around somebody’s throwin a pound
the value’s going down
Life is a free throw
But I don’t let it bother me
I keep movin logically
Ain’t nobody stopping me
Life is a free throw

Track Name: Holy Crap!
(verse 1)
I’m a emcee who spits with intimacy
I want you to see into me infinitely
I want you to be friends with me innocently
In a sense it depends if we can proceed
And we could bless Eden without eatin from trees
We don’t need leaves
We could be free
Kick out the serpent his tricks aren’t workin
I’m blessed with two esses my desert’s dessert it’s like

(hook)
Who’s gonna tell me how I’m supposed to act?
I’m supposed to be scared? I ain’t notice that -
Somebody told me rap’s getting overpacked
Holy crap! I ain’t holdin back
I’m bout to

Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie

(verse 2)
I’m a emcee who seems bourgeoisie
If you can spell that word then you’re cooler than me
You could speak foolery neutered you’ll be
It ain’t new to me lunacy’s been the usual since puberty
Truthfully I grew up brutally
Then beautifully
Turned to jubilee
Kick out the serpent his tricks aren’t workin
I’m blessed with two esses my desert’s dessert it’s like

(hook)
Who’s gonna tell me how I’m supposed to act?
I’m supposed to be scared? I ain’t notice that
Somebody told me rap’s getting overpacked
Holy crap! I ain’t holdin back
I’m bout to

Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie


(Bridge)
If you’re lookin for the real (you could find that)
Want something you can feel (you could find that)
Paint your bedroom teal (you could find that)
Standin’ tall while you kneel (you could find that)
If you’re lookin for the real (you could find that)
Want something you can feel (you could find that)
Paint your bedroom teal (you could find that)
Standin’ tall while you kneel (you could find that)

Who’s gonna tell me how I’m supposed to act?
I’m supposed to be scared? I ain’t notice that -
Somebody told me rap’s getting overpacked
Holy crap! Shit, I ain’t holdin back

Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie on
Pull my hat low and put my hoodie put my hoodie
