about

The frustration of being young and black in the military and America when people will often not listen to you. The track made me think of my time in Okinawa, Japan and how different it felt to be on that tiny island for 6 months. Whether people choose to listen or get forced I am determined to be heard, like so many of my peers. Young Hip hoppas have changed the global business paradigm and this is what people need to respect.

lyrics

Verse 1
This knock from Okinawa out to Pakistan
Parisian runways or posh clubs in Japan
Norwegian suites all the way down to Swaziland
Where ever you go Megaciph is the man 4
I walk with confidence in bare feet no vest
You know this mind is a gun so you’re no contest
Marine politicking with high level execs
You want conflict or interest? That’s the test! 8
Lets’s get it popping caviar and bottles to the table
Cracking crustacean shells while the cooks ain’t able
To even eat or feed their fam without six days labor
The media downplays it these problems major 12
This culture is global Selfie shots on mobiles
Celebrity locals Trading shots with moguls
This how we supposed to be occasions are rose to
Do more than exposed to like how all the flows grew 16
Make our own dude or D-I-E trying
Its D-I-Y til the day I die and dope I be supplying
M-Y lyrics get you high and fans be multiplying
I just take good notes and read the codes and that’s what I’m applying 20
It weird science with our chemical brains
This is biological warfare for my lane
I’m a carbon creation with a hulking frame
Inspiration to many that things can change 24
Chorus
Let’s go I’m on a roll you can’t stop me
Inflammatory mind they gon’ try an pop me
Product of my times Global society
To the new world order we toppling the hierarchy
I could make you all move with the word or the gun
I could make you all move with the word or the gun
I said I’ll make you all move with my word or the gun
I laid it out you just got to pick which one
Verse 2
I laid in brothels slept in hostels bought and sold from Rasta’s
Scaled a mountain trained with rifles read the whole green monster
Built with rappers earned my masters chef up some lobster
Lived on streets then the penthouse my mental’s colossal 4
Colossus with the flow real heavy on dropping knowledge
Like heavies in basic training tenured profs in college
This is not for the novice giving homework to scholars
I advise you acknowledge if you hate I admonish 8
Got em polishing knobs in hallways up in my home
For their past infractions bloggers leaving me alone
This a crystal palace you cannot enter my dome
Or rent in my vicinity you’ll flinch in my zone 12
This ain’t how I get along this is how I get the win
If we don’t get along you might catch one on the chin
The tempers real long like a jet stream wind
My weather punch like Pac you don’t wanna begin 16
Heavyweight trained to kill in the streets no joke
Off the head knock off the head of both you and ya bloke
This ain’t light smoke it’s choke holds going for broke
Dr. Carl Hart’s subjects choosing money over coke 20
It weird science with our chemical brains
This is biological warfare for my lane
I’m a carbon creation with a hulking frame
Inspiration to many that things can change 24
Chorus (2x)
Let’s go I’m on a roll you can’t stop me
Inflammatory mind they gon’ try an pop me
Product of my times Global society
To the new world order we toppling the hierarchy
I could make you all move with the word or the gun
I could make you all move with the word or the gun
I said I’ll make you all move with my word or the gun
I laid it out you just got to pick which one
