Track Name: Remix BS
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

(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
Track Name: To The G
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
Track Name: Trapped in Da Bass
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)
Track Name: U Know Bobbie
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
Track Name: WOU
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
Track Name: 3 GS
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 ....
Track Name: Happy Rose
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
Track Name: Lake Suksess
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
Track Name: Baby Ooh
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)
Track Name: Xylo Man
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
Track Name: Log One
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
Track Name: Get Ready Again
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
Track Name: Rattle Tail
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
Track Name: NYC Go
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
