Remix BS 01:41
Off rip I never miss the beat I'm here to eat Lay it down when I leave you hype an I never sleep You can find me in your dreams talking the final leap Life is greater than it seems I'm rolling a new leaf My belief systems out the norm there's few peers So the pressure was never on to off a few beers Though I can apply it when it's timely to say cheers (ready on the right) to let go of the fears I shed so many tears holding back from society I could row a boat up the river notoriety Now it's high time I tear thru you got ya eye on me Aligning me within your top five is where I got to be I got it B ain't no denying this microphone Is blessed in contests I take trophies an thrones Any games no bones about it no holds barred Get scarred for life hot bars char them clones I get to grilling a poem using lava to cook it With no protective clothing how's that looking? To haters that keep it locked like I was their central booking May this record set you free or Mobb Deep on a shook one Get to cooking hold the whipping or the drug metaphors Get the cookies hold the whip cream rest on the floor Let the bookies own the sixteen under the score And bet on self ad infinitum while raising the bar (Are you ready on the left are you ready on the right?) Catch me as I stage dive headlong into life Code switching by James Data and Megaciph (Are you ready on the left are you ready on the right?) Catch me as I stage dive headlong into life Code switching by James Data and Megaciph (are you ready on the left are you ready on the right?) Off rip I never miss the beat I'm here to eat Lay it down when I leave you hype an I never sleep You can find me in your dreams talking the final leap Life is greater than it seems I'm rolling a new leaf My belief systems out the norm there's few peers So the pressure was never on to off a few beers Though I can apply it when it's timely to say cheers Release my anxieties let go of the fears

To The G 02:04
Get you in the mood ie destination mode This is escalation interludes reservations on the phones meditation done at home in solitude and often elevations sentence poems and nonbelievers soften these are high grade offerings no time for deception I had former selves in coffins awaiting the resurrection Now we over the wall and aimed in your direction What you mean you ain't get the call? check the connection! I got these fibers optically locked on making it better knocked knees hypnotically rocked and shaken is clever Chorus I work passionately to be free and keep it peace heaven is tomorrow All this passion in me you could see I keep a piece between me and sorrow Let the passion less see love is free and peace increases when gave and borrowed Freely from the soul so freely from the soul you couldn't see so heaven is tomorrow Verse 2 No time for sleep no time for slumber we got data leaking No counting sheep or binary numbers while he speaking These mountains deep no getting under over the weekend genius fountains peeped setting suns for the meeting Steeped in metaphor tea leaves and life's lessons Cannabis galore my reprieves and my blessings What I have in store is receipts for what I'm selling Cuz the people want more they return and get to yelling Telling everybody how great the feeling is When you in time with yourself and know what true love is Chorus Chorus I work passionately to be free and keep it peace heaven is tomorrow All this passion in me you could see I keep a piece between me and sorrow Let the passion less see love is free and peace increases when gave and borrowed Freely from the soul so freely from the soul you couldn't see so heaven is tomorrow Freely from the soul so freely from the soul you couldn't see so heaven is tomorrow

Bass line heavy rich vocal on a mean track break nine levees ditch locals tell em lean back Make mine Chevy switch logos go team Black!! Take ya time Baby rich moguls don't need that Respeck homie respect comes from within Ask uncle snoop he went Rasta after juice and gin And aftermath was never the same after Em No matter who Dre sign they just after Em ... You do the math who really got control? The man who own ya masters own a piece of ya soul And if you ain't writing that's a piece you don't know So take these subliminal shots it's not a show For me this culture is my life fuck the music industry I was never interested in what them vultures do for me Parasitic and they artharitic on technology With their carcinogenic frequencies COPD Find me in warrior three my practice dynamic Veer uh buh DRAHS uh nuh I speak it in sanskrit Read the Bhagavad Gita on the floor in a mansion Butt naked with this cold flow keeping it tantric I'm godhead I'm cosmic I'm highly sexual Introduce you to your body macrocosm lyrical ..... This spiritual practice keep you Trapped Inda Bass With ya head nodding feet planted walking in space (3x)

I find myself doing what I thought I couldn't cuz I was told that I should not It's a high wire dance and a online chat with a hold that I would not This is my last chance stand don't fall flat those that said i could not Make an advance in this so called rap game chose cuz what I got That's a different view in addition to the way that I deliver On a mission too like I'm fixin to dunk your head in the river What I'm giving you is a gift that you embrace when you feel shivers It's a holy bath or a baptismal for all you true believers Chorus You know Bobbie he got hobbies he got passions too But he probably never ever gonna see them through You know Bobbie she not working she got attitude But she probably not the type to see the 2 plus 2 You know Bobbie you know Bobbie you know Bobbie too You know Bobbie you know Bobbie you know Bobbie too You know Bobbie Bobbie probably is a part of you If you know Bobbie then you know just what you gotta do Verse 2 Tell em I got dreams matched by my plans and I see where I will be when I put effort into action gain traction in that direction I'm a fraction not a Friction my diction it has no holes Punch for peace not for conflict a reflection of the whole Another prophet for the peace marches with a gift that is respected A prophet here auctioning my service to the underrepresented I pull off your ear what it's worth to show you that I meant it I pull off the year that I want my future in this culture is cemented chorus You know Bobbie he got hobbies he got passions too But he probably never ever gonna see them through You know Bobbie she not working she got attitude But she probably not the type to see the 2 plus 2 You know Bobbie you know Bobbie you know Bobbie too You know Bobbie you know Bobbie you know Bobbie too You know Bobbie Bobbie probably is a part of you If you know Bobbie then you know just what you gotta do

WOU 01:54 video
These are the reasons I rhyme (repeat rapping and singing) Peace ... Unity ... justice ... Community .... love ..... joy .... family Yo I'm a take it to the limit lay my life on the line I'm Breaking night for inspiration Megaciph on the rhyme I get these manic moments magic comes from making them mine And taking the time to manage right my body and mind I'm so elevated meditate to reach the divine My daily demonstrations teach you each of you can align The vertebra in the spine pituitary to shine Over mountains we climb to reveal cloud nine ..... Silver linings and gold dust these trappings don't hold us I'm keeping it robust and she can get no lust Material's so much controllers I go crush The soul is no rush this hand I hold so flush I wanna go grow kush and be known for dope hooks And read some more Bell Hooks in general more books And get less or more looks and let off of more hooks Increase some more outcomes in other words outlooks .... This is not how it looks this is just how it is All our people ain't crooks you just killing our kids How many lives get took and they don't do no bids? How many eyes won't look at our perspective? So I don't respect the system try to infect it With these injections my sickness invented Use my sixth sense with a hiphop intervention To break down barriers cause an ascension

3 GS 01:55
Now as night fades to morning and the dreams stop We begin to wipe the crust from our last tear drops Eyes burning ..... the soul yearning for more When that bubble pops it's like the feds kicked in ya door Bitter and sore from a life of rejection With ya face stuck in the ground asking the questions Love or apprehension? fear or fearlessness? First and last empower middle ground can't deal with this The hot and cold bear witnesses their fitness is More spiritual than lukewarm fabricated differences And you can wear this message it's chain mail armor Protection for ya mental from a world that'll harm you I come in peace I only come in peace now (8x) I meant it when I said it life is little more than metaphor Your daily actions are the seeds planted in the garden store So what's the farming for if not to harvest at the right time Find me at the wine press bottling the fine wine I'm ever present with designer lines for your palate In a moment I been known to knock you off ya balance Saying hone your skills and talents bring it all to fruition Make it wonderland and Alice beyond halls of tuition Go forth and make decisions that'll change the world For the better and be remembered forever Tremendous wherever Always and 4 ever and ever and ever and ever ....

Happy Rose 01:31
This day is like the last you know what it's gonna be Humble man run fast get punished in front of me I can't breathe all choked up smoking this potently Openly you choking me hoping i can't breathe Eric Garner on the corner Syrians crossing borders Governors dirty water this whole systems out of order Fukushima no more Hiroshima no more Nagasaki I can't take it no more i need tequila and hot sake The way these pigs rocky i Luau on their slop house Dance in the ashes aloha to the straw house Lustful giving wood all up in the Brickhouse Elohim pick this up and make it run out your mouth A race of beings ancient kings presently the underclass Naming things claiming history board the mother craft Call the ancestors daily For a simple life free of the rat race do the math When the path of the righteous won't just lead you astray May I have the time when corruptions not the way? When it's not Hillary or Trump to lead the free people When true freedom means no beings can lead you I beseech you the truth of the people won't be silenced Suppression of these shots fired suffering the violence From Riker's island plantation to pelican bay Survivors of these race wars in slavery today This day could be the last emancipate away Humble man run fast riding to light the way

Lake Suksess 02:11
Shanks to mumble rappers lackluster with a shaky flow Yank you stumbling actors out of ya motherfucking door Drank two numbing packs of another less than average show Thanks dude humble after hit wit a kitchen sink of soap This immaculate dope coast to coast fresh produce Delivered door to door it's direct or it's no use I'm into intellect old school in a phone booth Snatching capes off the fool and throw him of his own roof Homicide with the proof bloody as dictators hands Or America's troops deployed to these foreign lands This ironic truth still most don't understand Yet and still they will subscribe and like on Instagram I give a damn if you fam or not when you deserve it Let the whole world know I got plans for the worthy Have you heard me? Are you (sing) listening? To the wayward pastor get your christening? To the Vatican I'm at it again like Anakin Shatter mannequins or hooded men touching boys with grins Don't let me get at these hypocrites original sin Sickness within can be cured with a little juice and gin Illmatic ... or some fear of a black planet Are you Ready to die I still think Pac planned it We cross the spectrum and stay highly demanded Here's why ... Fuck it you wouldn't understand it Yo I'm a seventies baby with a sixties soul I got like 8 dimes in me with this nineties flow My millennial know how black and I'm proud Speaking futuristic when I'm thinking out loud Still sticking it out got hits I'm thinking about Invest time you know I ain't just poking around When I motion the crowd and get emotional shouts I can't lose I have no confusion or doubts I made this for the crowds and uploaded to clouds So sharing it could be how we get this message out Let's free the people now with our verbs and nouns So the healing surrounds us with words and sounds (Ohm, amen and the wailing wall Poems save men from taking it all) 2x

Baby Ooh 01:31 video
i know this may sound crazy but ... I don't wanna score I just wanna lay up I just wanna Netflix and stay up Til the break of dawn in the AM Till they break this song on the AM Make the rotation and they payin Saying what most of you thinking Smacking locations in the matrix The body of work is just greatness Wait list on the props to come through Make this all the dreams that come true Some view sweat and tears as work Most do less than peers to add worth Uh I could fake but I'm just playing son I would look at where you aiming guns I should wake up when the people won I could've would've should've ain't no fun (2x) Verse 2 let's keep it up I got kids next door Bass peaks with a sound this pure The way I speak gets me out on tour When the data leaks I'm crowned for sure I'm bound for Europe and down for more Go town to town and door and door Shore to shore with this art of war Working peace at home and peace abroad Veterans for peace freely speak for all When we take the streets unleash the call Will it please the Lord see me in the mall? Or increase the reach of a QBs ball Kaepernick stands where others fall Dare to stand in the shoes of a man this tall Able to take the hate and still throw the ball Because the plight of some should be the fight off all Chorus I could fake but I'm just playing son I would look at where you aiming guns I should wake up when the people won I could've would've should've ain't no fun (2x)

Xylo Man 01:47
Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Universal music is drum patterns and rhythms We're each unique thanks to beeps and glitches In these streets I'm driven in these beats I'm living Timeless resident of change and I'm delivering Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud The offbeat illa prefer hemp to chinchilla This artistry I breathe don't need malt liquor When on these beats I'm a Silver back gorilla Monsters in my league tyranasaurus godzilla Space manipulator I'm with you now and later Shouts to my previous mixtape this one's greater Shouts to my brother and producer James Data Shouts to the future introducing MegaData Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud Frequency and vibration reach our soul and speak aloud A pebble thrown in limbo making ripples on your mind A rebel growing older and maturing like some vino A devil know I'm a man with a penchant for some rhyme A level up I don't bet but I'm good money like casinos Freak shows and fuck free shows that's behind me Obscene flows and passion you ain't seen til my shows Remind me why I'm anything and indefinable This light you see is blinding and undeniable And you can find it too that's if you trying to Yeah you can find it too cuz it lives inside of you

Life is fast pace the rat race in a cat chase Lace these tracks like shells and a fat lace Mace and beat blacks fill cells with that race Disgraced displaced at this rate it's all a waste Interlace interface make it great in the place To be or not to be when I shove it in your face This is not a waste of time unless you are a waste of time I ain't out here wasting mine there's too many heads in line Divine with the number nine climb til it's R time I need a moment to reflect ...... Now I'm fine My spit kinetics kick in your head ... And spine Hey, there's a dick in your bed, and it's mine I'm just joking no I'm not I'm just poking cuz you're hot I know I get you open with the way that I rhyme I influence the times people power and the media With relevant rhyme for people power & the media Cuz I'm a product of people power and the media I'm here to free the people with the power of the media Key ingredients are truth and not misleading ya Dope frequencies for the youth I believe in y'all Open to seeing the future ... we live on! I ain't hoping no more had to change that song Barack kept us calm for 8 it's time for revolution! This an open letter I can make a resolution Whatever you talking bout begins with restitution Or it's like kicking teachers out for teaching evolution Or shutting schools down and funding war and it's pollution I'm punching with new sounds and offering solutions First we put guns down stop killing other humans Then we overturn the system by controlling our consuming Demanding an improvement in daily life Re distribution of resources why I survive We ain't seeking a peace offering cut rewind I connect with your soul and touch your mind Intertwine with the live mind kicking the rhyme Visit timing as if it's your last mission alive There's a reason each and everyone of us has arrived There's a reason each and everyone of us has arrived

Empty vessels at birth Filled with pain til it bursts Fall in love with what hurts because reworking it's worse Decompress and it works smoking nothing but herbs Earning stripes on the curves grab the purse and it purrs Life is lessons to learn from projects to the burbs I project with my words I invent what you heard I don't mumble or slur unless I'm liquored and herbed So that's high as a kite and also hugging the curb Y'all are something absurd Ikea instructions blurred The survivor that's cursed or the driver that swerved Find it out in the purge as if you got the courage Push the pedal to merge heavy metal with verbs My every level preferred my entry level on third Eyes open stay woke hustler hunting them birds Out of mind out of body out of skin Out of time out of honesty and sin Out of lies find out what's within Now it's aaaaalllll mine get ready again (2x) I am way above average but what is an average There's no bell curve for savage I am not to be managed Always living it lavish love the women but mannish Switching up on the language MI vida loca in Spanish Eating tacos and radish taking out all the madness Sneaking out of the flatness speaking out when you've had it It ain't perfect in Paris eiffel tower of glasses And it all seems fantastic til one push and it shatters Then there's creaks in the carriage Creaks in the carriage creaks in the carriage ... Out of mind out of body out of skin Out of time out of honesty and sin

Rattle Tail 01:57
Life is shaking it's tail at you won't be too many Few get bitten so it's written know it peace & plenty How you living what I'm giving is the best of me We are different I don't give in! It's my recipe Nothing's given butter tastes received pleasantly The difference is destiny I let you down gent ill Lee This is ecstacy without drug lords and victims Ain't no getting next to me on drums chords and rhythms And if you get to close to me drunk of the wisdom Escaping from the legacy by jumping off the building Suicidal shock go and hide your children Or raise em to be aware and trust in their decisions I spit incisions the system broken in disrepair The indecision has risen and now it's in the air If I can fix it with my vision call me mister mayor Working it local and taking it global my whole career Need a back up spare still a hobby rhymer there I said it who cares now go and get prepared The wars coming it's already here your hands in the air When you wave em .... Make it cuz you really care Life changing and yeah it all matters in the end So own your flaws and make a new friend Don't fight holy wars make hashtag peace trend Go find your cause subscribe and hit send Don't you wish it was that easy now? (sing songy) We could focus on the moment or dwell on the how Prepare for the future I'm sitting on clouds With silver linings and here to say what this world really 'bout God is in the heart the art is in the moment Love is in the now and the true masters own it God is in the heart the art is in the moment Love is in the now and the true master owns it Sword sharpener drove fat lady to the opera Light carpenter rose the level like candelabera Harbinger of change soul rebel to bargainers Walking thru the market flipping birds at marketers You get it or you don't believe it or you can't I'm standing in the fire kicking coals on your camp Site to sight third eye vision of a mogul The scenes I write invite you visionaries over Boundless captures in the dreams of a soldier Slave mounds and burial grounds with no closure

NYC Go 01:47 video
The verbal stimulant herbal militant Hermit with a gift heard it's limitless I burn and twist images are marvelous Governor pardon this I'm part of this Let's sponsor this and honor it With marches and impartialness Like legalizing the invention of words To raise the consciousness They say it's absolutely absurd To raise the consciousness I'm moving quick like public tesla stock options To raise the consciousness To raise the consciousness To raise the consciousness .... Rest. .. Source code genetic matrices we major league Anti agency and writing to make it to freedom Alternating currents lyric rhythms choppy feeds In this universe of ups and downs I am well degreed Freedom of information strictly newsworthy rhyming Seeking elevation got my sights set on finding it The goals in the journey run the jewels along the path The gift of this nirvana my presence in this plan I won't shift or sway or piss it away after drinking a fifth a day My mission's laid my visions staid on the course with no delay For NYC then GO today the highest peak then go belay I find a beat and then go play and when I speak they all gone stay That's the way it is that's the way it's gon be To raise the consciousness you got to be free That's the way it is that's the way is gon be To raise the consciousness you got to be free
