Track Name: Bump
I ain't got a leash on my neck, nope,
ain't no, burden or monkey here controlling my steps,
I've been looking at it wrong was a man with no specs,
I dismantled all my rights but didn't handle my lefts, I'm,
Smelling things from my youth, like yo I've been here,
I swear I've smelt this moment but it wasn't ever this clear
Got a grip on my wants and I'm a set a date
A dream’s just a wish if you never let em get some play
So now I'm setting ‘em free, I know they'll come home,
they need me, they're way too greedy just to run alone,
they need a spirit to fill they need a human touch
they need someone else to get ill cause they ain't doing much
I saw my fears in the light, they get clearer at night
looked in the mirror started hearing my sight and what I,
saw was a sound that was nearer my height, I used to,
fear the clap but now I'm steering my mic
It gets deep when you wake, even deeper than sleep,
and if you, feed the hate then you get weaker than weak
so now I, feed the love to keep my feet on the street,
and now I, know what I need when I heat up a beat


Hook

This will make you bump right, make you bump now
this will make you bump right, this will make you bump now
Make you bump right, make you bump now,
this will make you bump, bump, bump, bump, bump, bump
This will make you bump right, make you bump now
this will make you bump right, this will make you bump now
This will make you bump right, this will make you bump now,
this will make you bump, bump, bump, bump, bump, bump


I'm barely in this for the money or sex it's for the irony
of hoping that a label will love me and want to hire me
where everything I do made my crew want to fire me
I'm a maybe, a someday, I'm what my environment be, I
Got some bills, got some debt, I got it all dude,
Got some rent, got some friends, yea a small crew,
I do my thing I ain't focused on what y'all do,
I ain't only 'bout the Challah bread, I ain't all jew
I'm for the good times and toasting to the death toll
I ain't met a bill I ain't loved, bring on some escro,
I'm getting lucky I'm just going where the gets go,
I need a better view the truth been blurry from my threshhold
this is truth in the flesh yo, better than fresh yo,
got good, studied the best flows, and
now I'm killin it grillin it til it lets go
I had a feeling I would be chillin somewhere that's less cold


Hook

This will make you bump right, make you bump now
this will make you bump right, this will make you bump now
Make you bump right, make you bump now,
this will make you bump, bump, bump, bump, bump, bump
This will make you bump right, make you bump now
this will make you bump right, this will make you bump now
This will make you bump right, this will make you bump now,

Track Name: Kill Or Be Killed ft. Soul Khan
I keep on, walking the block and seeing people limited to lifestyles they can't afford,
and this intricate marketing of a war has got me sparring with the lord
because religious sons of bitches keep rewriting our laws,
it's revolution, America is facing evolution,
gots to pay attention they don't mention that they looting,
and shooting people quick for some shit they didn't even do,
and in the name of the lord, they believe it's true,
I fight fire with grace, you could wire my place,
but when we riot we gone retire the jakes cause,
we need escape from police states,
increased rates of hate has got each state on weed breaks,
take a nap and slap yourself to know it's not a dream,
government schemes are as blatant as a scream,
nothings what it seems we've been covered in lies,
by these media supplies that treat us like we're fiends

Hook
yo its, Kill or be killed, will or be willed,
you could lead you could follow, you could die by the sheild,
you could try to get a deal or you could just get dealed,
but when you're dead it doesn't matter how much money you yield
yo its, Kill or be killed, will or be willed,
you could lead you could follow, you could die by the sheild,
you could try to get a deal or you could just get dealed,
but when you're dead it doesn't matter how much money you yield

Yo, I'm tired and fed up, it's hard to keep my head up,
I get knocked down and then I get up,
the rain just won't let up, and it keeps on soaking my mind
hoping I find another reason for breathing besides time, cause
waking up just ain't enough these days,
I got enough to worry 'bout from these oily waves, shit,
Gots no love I gots no hope,
these beats and these words are my only ways to cope
so I keep my friends close and my mind on my family
tryin to find solutions to these problems life keeps handing me
and I ain't looking for amnesty in this fantasy
so if you feel trapped like I feel then come and stand with me

Hook
yo its, Kill or be killed, will or be willed,
you could lead you could follow, you could die by the sheild,
you could try to get a deal or you could just get dealed,
but when you're dead it doesn't matter how much money you yield
yo its, Kill or be killed, will or be willed,
you could lead you could follow, you could die by the sheild,
you could try to get a deal or you could just get dealed,
but when you're dead it doesn't matter how much money you yield

vader

now fellas get stuck in the flow

I can move for ya, pay a couple dues for ya,

commit a crime for ya, do a bunch of time for ya,
make a shrine for ya, pray to it in kind for ya,
cut my eyes out, and lead the fucking blind for ya

Track Name: I Don't Mind ft. Elle King
I don't mind
he does this to me every time
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love
I don't mind, no
he does this to me every time, yo
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love

She says things like "we're doomed, I don't want to be consumed,
there's a thin line between love, and holding a broom,
and I ain't tryin to live life to someone else's tune,
I'ma hum my own future so for you there's no room,
and I'm singing the same song I don't wanna be groomed,
I'm tryin to find my own peace of mind so that I could bloom,
I ain't tryin to own nothing but my movements and acts,
stay accountable for me, I'm not abusing the facts, it's like,
what can I do for you if I can't do for me first,
gotta be responsible no matter how much she hurts,
and she knows this even better than I do,
sometimes I wanna cage her but I know she gotta fly too

I don't mind
he does this to me every time
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love
I don't mind, no
he does this to me every time, yo
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love

Listen love, I wouldn't say its bad for us to kiss and hug,
right or wrong writing this song is not me giving up,
I'm trying to get it right, and I just wanna do my thing,
set a date, let it hang and turn into my everything,
fuck the blues I ain't got time to waste on other shoes,
walking in my owns been enough for me to cover dues,
but still I owe her cause she showed me I'm an artist,
and since she lovin a sad song, I'm going where her heart is,
dearly depart us from things that we expect to be,
failure's just that feedback when on the road to ecstasy,
I learned my lesson but I can't leave it or let it be,
I know you wanna be alone but love it when you're next to me

I don't mind
he does this to me every time
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love
I don't mind, no
he does this to me every time, yo
he comes by then I start to cry
he's not, the man I should love
Track Name: Lost Control ft. Curt@!n$
since the days he was young, he was running round pointing a gun,
taking your money that’s a past time for dun,
ain’t no trick or treat it’s click or clack trying to git a stack,
of whatever’s up in your pockets and you’d never get it back,
slinging that crack is nothing that’s a side pot for dunny,
he’d blast five shots at your knot for money,
it’s hardly ‘bout the cash he’d almost do it for the thrill of it,
he likes the look on your face and once he even killed a kid,
illiterate, the only math he knows is through a chiseled brick,
breaking up g packs of crack is just some little shit,
it’s all about the get down or lay down cousin and remember
this kid smiles while he’s busting your muffin, you better,
play your cards right, if you bluffing,
cause if there’s turkeys round he makes stuffing,
puffing and buzzing off what he pushin,
he barely knows his own name,
you do crazy things when you high on cocaine

Lost, lost lost control of my mind,
flip flip flip flip the safety off the nine
Lost, lost lost control of my mind,
flip flip flip flip the safety off the nine
Lost, lost lost control of my mind,
flip flip flip flip the safety off the nine
Lost, lost lost control of my mind,
flip flip flip flip the safety off the nine

Track Name: Sheep ft. Vader the Villin, Silent Knight
vader
Aye, yea tell me what your God like,
you believe in the bottle or pray to bong pipes?
have you been tappin the throttle or taking long flights?
come and meet a couple of fellas who work it all night
now they got nothing to sell us we never lost sight
i gotta frostbite flow, might turn white
meaning i keep the bars real cold like klondike
everybody making the gold they puttin it on right
yeah, we got this funny little skill
and now these big shot dummies who’d kill us to make a deal
want wrist watch honey? no money, i gotta steal
how come all the people making a million i couldn’t feel?
gotta keep both feet on the pedals spinning the wheel
and these fellas keep kissing the devil to get a meal, aye
i’ll never settle for bread or keepin it sealed
and my dreams ain’t hitting the bed til i make em real

hook
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd

epick
what you know about them games you playing?
most of us obeying don’t even be hearing what they saying
all complacent while the thing we love’s decaying
and proud to represent it in that ditch where we laying
i’m saying, the walking dead, the way we working ain’t paying,
cavemen had more sense than we displaying,
a little bit of it is still too illiterate, read between the lines,
and you’ll finds that we’re filled with it,
this bullshit is in the air and we’re breathing it,
generation next? we’re the next ones repeating it,
we ain’t different, we through a different beat on it,
and did a little dance with our cake like we eating it,
please, they fed us shit and then they peed on it,
lined up for it, and asked ‘em to put some cheese on it,
it’s funny money the way that we wanted honey
is killing all the bees and overseas spreading freedom on it

hook
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd

silent knight
The unrested
untapped treasure
the young pack, unwrapped and uncensored
no question left unasked or un-accepted
that's the cut of cloth of class of who I rep with
the under privileged
under funded
understudies under fire living life, not just pundits
the front liners
who know it's more than just rhymes
and even moreso, more than just one liners
the def-dumb-blinders
from pet-drunk drivers
make me vexed sometimes
I feel like getting buck wilder
but I step much wiser
move more stealthier
keep my mind, body, and soul much healthier
put myself in a position to help more
instead of running desperate head first in a hell storm
but at the same time doing what I can now
never been the type to stop moving and stand down.
Track Name: Boom
what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout,
what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout

at first she threw me bliss, then she threw a fist,
i’m not used to women punching but i blocked it with my wrist,
told her that i loved her, tried to club her with a kiss,
but she threw me down a well and said to dwell in that abyss,
and i, tried to swim in it and be a bigger fish
but i couldn’t swim the same way i did when we were kids,
then i, made a promise to be honest and i fibbed
and that lie grew so high it couldn’t fit where we lived,
and we’d, dance around it like it wasn’t in the crib
everytime i called her baby she would answer with a bib
that would drive me crazy and i’d throw a little fit
then i’d, scream at her with silence while she asked me what she did

what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout,
what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout

she said, “you don’t have to yell to be mean,
and sometimes your silence can be louder than a scream,
i wish you’d see it and i wish you didn’t lean,
mom say’s i attract ‘em i’m just trying to live my dream,
and then you caught me and pulled me out my stream,
and strung me along while you plotted, planned and schemed,
told me that you loved me, that we made the perfect team,
but turns out that was just steam,” (No it wasn’t, Love)
“and i forgave you ‘cause i loved the way we seemed,
no one’s ever loved me so filthy i felt clean,
everything just fell apart, especially our dream,
pretending you were pure white, when really you were green.”

what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout,
what is this all about, settle down, please don’t yell or shout
Track Name: Move Slow ft. Elle King
hook
I wish that you could keep my loving
I wish that I could spread my wings
I wish I didn't keep on bluffing
I wish you didn't get your things, no
I'm wishing we could move slow
I'm wishing we could move slow

You say I'm not realistic, I say you think small
if life's just a game why not treat it like its whiffle ball
give and go, let it go, forget it like rohipynol,
can't change yesterday but I don't want to let it fall, and
doing drugs ain't helping me to get it tall
a bad back with big dreams the balance act is pitiful
treat you like a god or I treat you like a little doll
I understand you leaving but just know I'm gonna miss it all

hook
I wish that you could keep my loving
I wish that I could spread my wings
I wish I didn't keep on bluffing
I wish you didn't get your things, no
I'm wishing we could move slow
I'm wishing we could move slow

What you focus on can fumble you, hinder you or humble you
focus on the L or you can focus on the W
whichever one you focus on will be the one you wanna do
so careful with those thoughts, especially the ones that trouble you
don't treat em like the enemy, it's easy as a 1 and 2
just show 'em that you love 'em and they'll show you that your lovin's true
you're right where you're supposed to be, now, just look in front of you
and thank god the things that you have haven't run from you

hook
I wish that you could keep my loving
I wish that I could spread my wings
I wish I didn't keep on bluffing
I wish you didn't get your things, no
I'm wishing we could move slow
I'm wishing we could move slow

i’ve been in this 15 years, no labels chasing me,
it’s been a slow grind, i been waiting impatiently,
got my man keith witty to lay down some bass for me,
rock from new york all the way out to bay city,
everything i touch turns to something much better,
i’d do it all myself but with my peeps it sounds wetter,
we organizing noise and we’re doing it prolifically,
gifted motherfuckers, show respect for my infantry,
i only got people who got skills in my click,
ill as we get i’m surprised that we’re still in this shit,
i’m the one that cooked the beat, ya heard i chiseled the brick,
grabbed a handle of the sample and then i fiddled with it
i’m making something out of once was trying to build a plump buzz,
sell a couple thou underground then make the jump up,
i’m doing dumb stuff but getting by on dumb luck,
make it i’m a genius, if not i’m a dumb fuck

Track Name: Good Man
verse 1
My, father's from harvard, my mother came from cambridge, i've been looking for a school on my own
I found this little, brittle shack on the other side of town and i went in and taught myself to get clowned
I guess my, father couldn't bother my mothers under covers and they couldn't show me right from a wrong
So I, found my own church, gave up my love and my search, and in this shack is where i learned to get down

hook 1
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you teach me? (i was looking for help, but never once thought of helping myself)
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you lead me? (i was looking for help, but never once thought of helping myself)

verse 2
My sister, she follows scriptures in the magazine pictures and she wishes she could get what they have
But then she'll, tell me i'm hopeless and that i need to get focused if i ever wanna become a dad
And my, brothers a buster, such a selfish mother fucker, he only cares about the bottom line
But, I can't blame him for MY shameless misbehaving just because he has a rotten spine

hook2
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you teach me? (i can show you how to get there now)
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you need me? (i can show you how to get there now)
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you teach me? (i can show you how to get there now)
ooooooohhhhhoooohoohhoooo, why didn't you lead me? (i can show you how to get there now)

I'm holding last place on the lips you long to kiss
Track Name: Top To Bottom
I've been committed since the day I could crawl
So I'm never playing the bench son I get at the ball
I make it known that I can score points, and make more joints
than most emcees, my breeze will leave 'em all moist
My flows hypnotic, my game is irresistible
When i leave my shows hoes call me like 'we missing you'
I had to dis a few but also got to kiss a few
while looking for a love that's unconditional
A couple months ago I was living so pitiful
Even amongst my friends my name would bring about ridicule
But now it's all changing and things are on the come up
Respect is what I'm earning, I'm learning through dumb luck to
get what I need and move what I can,
I got women now, no more fucking round with my hand
I stand alone, always at home, on my own two
but when i put it down I'm doing it for my whole crew


Hook
From top to bottom he got those, such hot flows
Even in the summertime he can leave your block froze
from the bottom to tops floors, you’re not poor,
you don't need a dollar to holler, if you got yours
From top to bottom he got those, such hot flows
Even in the summertime he can leave your block froze
from the bottom to tops floors, you’re not poor,
you don't need a dollar to holler, if you got yours


I been performing since the days I was young
And I remember like it’s yesterday the way it begun
I had a little audition for a choir and got it
and then I got hired to sing on records to make a profit
but i, i never dreamed that that would become a theme
and carry on through my teens like my fetish for greens
I know that nothings what it seems and I done struggled for a reason
at least, I succeeded in keeping my peeps believing,
cause, I seen a lot of love, I've seen a lot of hate
guess that's the way it works, life's a family holiday so,
I can't apologize for anything I'm doin, I'm the,
American dream, just look what I'm pursuing, I'm a
White kid in a black art with mad heart
who never once wavered his dream and stayed with his team
I never lost focus I've been hopelessly addicted to
the one thing in my life that holds no principles.

Hook x 2
From top to bottom he got those, such hot flows
Even in the summertime he can leave your block froze

you don't need a dollar to holler, if you got yours
From top to bottom he got those, such hot flows
Even in the summertime he can leave your block froze
from the bottom to tops floors, you’re not poor,
you don't need a dollar to holler, if you got yours
