Track Name: Puppy Love
Thinking out loud talkin to my homie
I'm concerned we ain't eating
it was never suppose to be this way supposedly
I've fallen near the apple tree
I been hearin do good for yourself
Hearin Go to to school is how you do it for yourself
I been hearin they aint build rome in a day
Got ta get to workin if ya tryna get paid
Gotta get to workin if your tryna get paid

My girl hate that i work so much but I’m tryna get paid
Hate that i don't see my two daughters enough but im tryna get paid
Bills piling up cause us artist don't get paid
remember i used to hit the bend for a crisp line and a fade
Man i Wish i knew then what i know now
We been movin kinda fast lately maybe we should slow down
Wish i knew then what i know now love me for a phase
than be gon in the mornin hold on hold on
You cant buy love like you can't buy good health
Few things i love aint no good for my health
Its gets expensive to dream now let that soak in
im taking my talents to cali on the next thing smokin

Perhaps i was wrong this time
Last time worked out just fine
Was it just puppy love
Was it just puppy love
Perhaps this life aint for me
What if this life aint for me
Was it just puppy love
Was it just puppy love
Is this just puppy love
Track Name: Conversations Ft Mike
I just wanna know what it’s like to be you
On a summer day in june
Do you listen
Do you feel
Sun feels nice
You were right

Cause i feel empty
in this conversation
And you know
all my moves

Screamin hallelujah hal if ya hear me like a sunday service
Buy they lives than regret the purchase
I ain't gettin no younger still trynna pin point my purpose
or have a conversation scratch a little deeper than the surface
All differences aside this breeze feels nice you ain't never lied
Trial and error
Trynna do what aint been done but aint no guide
Through one ear and out the other
Smiling faces death ears
I can see right through that cover
Before we ashes to ashes dust to dust
We should have this heart to heart
Finish what i started that's a must
cause ive done enough to break my mothers heart
I rarely been on time because i stopped to smell the roses
Appreciate the beauty in the little things we move to fast to notice
And id love to pick yo brain shares smiles feel yo pain but i
Track Name: Ms. Coretha
You gon make a fool out of me
But go easy babe
Cause you drive me crazy
You gon make a fool out of me
Homies say i need to give you up
But i cant get enough of your love

He say he dont love me nomore but i dont believe him
I know he aint perfect and thats ok i aintk either
Even tried to tell myself taht i didnt need em
Man i must be crazy casue i finally found a keeper
This man is a keeper man you even met my momma
What imma tell my poppa
You gon mess around and make a fool out of both of us


Trynna get back to making the music
That made us fall in love with the beginning
Most like most men i tend to be easily distracted by women
And i been like this myu whole life
And i dont see no changing in site
Made a few lefts should have made more rights
Extra extra read all about it
another dead black male who gon tell the mamma
she gotta bury Her son she never thought shed outlive
something got to give stay more positive
But even on the bright side theres always shadows
and the grass aint always green
I been rocking show after show
Trynna blow like hiroshima
We all pray we make it but aint no telling
If its fate or effort aint no tellin
Prolly boil down to youtube views if you let soulja boy tell em
I been locked up in my room locked up in my room
I know these 20 dolla beats wont pay salie no time soon




Il arrive a day before the day comes
I been made a fool
Ms coretha

Wont at down and settle down or stay down
All my life with you

I just cant leave this girl alone i cant just leave this girl alone
Cant leave coretha
Wont leave coretha
I just cant leave this girl alone i cant just leave this girl alone
I wont leave coretha
No no no no
Track Name: Sasha's Song
I’m from where the stars form
You can find anything hear
Everything is very near
You make it if you try
Spread your wings let your dreams fly
where the stars form where the stars form

Sasha don't take no from nobody nobody
Sasha don't depend on nobody nobody
cause dinner depend on her body her body
Cause Sashas the big life of the party life of the party
So go head dnce sasha
So go go head go go head go go head

Captain of the dance team till the school cut the funding
Let her teachers tell it shed never amount to nothin
If she aint find something more becoming to invest her time into
Guilty of bending the rules done skipped school a time or two
Ya sure but who aint
Went to a couple parties but she never drank
Paid for some lesson wit some pennies saved in her piggy bank
Aint to much about her typical
Now she on youtube twerkin for some retweets
talkin bout she taken her talents down to atlanta
She hit a couple casting call but never got a call back
everybody tried to tell her she should have a fall back
But when you trynna chase yo dreams shit you ain't trynna hear all dat
When you trynna chase you dreams you aint trynna hear all dat

Everytime the beat drop she gotta dance
she tellin me all about her different plans
Plannin out the weekend in advacne
Know a couple way for us to make bands
You the life of the party all eyes on you
Niggas willing to lose lives over you
To me you so beautiful
Black queen ou so beautiful
Sasha dont wait round for nobody go go head
Shsa dont wait round for nobody go go head

What you sippins not the question put it in the air
I see you shootin for the stars well girl i'll meet you there
I know yo mamma aint gon like what youve become
But you got all the makins, you got all the makings
I'm the man around town the way it stands
I did good before and il do good again
Cause i got all the makings, i got all the makings
Cause i got the makings
Track Name: Talk To Me Ft J.Rob
Young black boy found slain but left out all the details
daddy dearly departed got caught up pushing product
Product of a broken home aint excuse
he fightin a losin battle what's the use
Cant beat em fuck it join em
Waist deep to late to second guess now
keep kosher careful who you croos
Count yo blessing be a boss
Feeling desperate just might do something drastic
Lately been trynna be more upfront and less passive
But when youve grown so used to the fasad its tough to know whats real
Hopin i dont lose myself just trynna find a deal

Never wanted to be the one that wondered what could have been
Hate it or love it you gon remember
Hate it or love it you gon remember

Feeling desperate just might do something drastic
Lately been trynna be more upfront and less passive
When youve grown so used to the facade its tough to know what real
Hopin i dont lose my self trynna find a deal
Never wanted to be the one that wondered what could have been
Hate it or love it you gon remember hate it or love it you go n remember

Hate it or love it you gon remember me
Lil ol me
I been dishin out these lyrics since i heard the first beat
Never been the type to back down
Never passive aggressive
but im good at passing a message
like im holding a weapon
I seek knowledge
But i dropped out of college a long time ago
but i did that without lettin my mamma know
Dropped out like some dominoes
fast in a hurry vision was blurry
After that i man though about servin but it aint worth it
Thoughts rearrange lookin for change
Pennies With holes got alot smarter told myself i was gon get
Now they clap they hands whenever they in the stands
now i got fans in japan that want me up in ???
Beautiful struggle
I used to want the bubble on some ds
All the jays with the chick on her knees and all the weed
But im grown now i been on my own
And as far as life goes
I think i got it
you listen to the product aint cha

These are the times
These are the times that i need you

I got this groove that got me feeling so good
So good so good
Track Name: I want, I need
What you call trah sure looks like treasure to me
90 lashes for 9 years teach ya to ever try to be free
Heard the pastor from my childhood church just got sent up state
Kinds crazy to think at least now him and byron can relate
i know my lineage full of kings they try to convince us it was heathens
i want my eulogy read my morgan freeman
From on top of the sears tomorrow scream freedom
bear it all like eden and jump
is cool to follow just be careful who's leadin less shootin more readin
less shootin more readin
The pressure getting to us all even jordan gone vegan
Cant wait to look back on these times
i had to pick jalil up on wheaton reading
The kzoo times like why we aint on that cover yet
Lately only been interested in inner peace
trying my best to tame this inner beast
Nothing worth having comes cheap
And thank the lord that all that self doubt deceased

Shoot up my back like there's no way to relax
figure out the facts after im bleedin
Im a beautiful human being
Imma be everything i said i was dreamin
Remember how they prayed for me all day
but i was at the spot spendin money
Time for me to take a step and turn around
everything im doing is for better now

I want i need
A change in me
No more doubting myself no more insecurities
Gotta be sure of my destiny
Gotta be strong in my faith and always know my place
Track Name: Flower Girl Ft Yolonda Lavender, DC
My love for you
Will always be true
Unconditional
Limitations unknown
Swim the deepest sea climb the highest tree
Sacrifice for you, give my life for you

My pops pop hit the pave he was 11 yrs old
Promise god he wouldn't let his kids feel it in they soul
Kept his word in and out of the alter
Word to the potter death to the plotter
For the times he tried to take his daughter
But it made him a martyr for the word for the truth
Pass sermons down to rhyme so i was saved in the booth
So many lessons learned sittin at the kitchen table
Be fearless as mary never love like cain loved able
Most fathers are fable mine chose to be fact
Worked 3-4 jobs funeral homes to car shacks slack never
There for whatever
Planted seads and breathed life and worth
From my roots to my leaves
Kept him up late at night
When i was stagnant in the streets comin home at all hours
Prayin show in one peace but
This is my moment and i want you to know it
For all them years i cant go back t
I love you pops and not for all that you've done
but for the women that you help your little baby girl become

Seams like yesterday we brought you home and now yo birthday cake got 6 candles
I see you satchin so i try to set a better example
Keep you from making all the same dumb decisions yo daddy
I pray you reach every accolade
A miracle i mistook as a mishap
but gods got a funny way of disguising blessing in a gift wrap
you queen girl and d0nt you ever let nobody tell you no different
or make you feel some crazy type of way about your pigment
it ways to be persistent
And as much as id like to hid it in time you’ll find that the world is pretty twisted
But it only takes one to make a difference
And you gon be that one to make a difference

Pedals from the flower girl
Scattered petals all around the word
Petals from the flower girl flower girl
Track Name: Motherland Ft Kidd o
Its pretty cool to be seen but id much rather be heard
Wonder what ever happen to a dream deferred
Feel like i aint slept in a month
Thanks to an obsession to socialize amongst
The greats the grace dont fall to far from the throne
Told my momma imma snatch that crown
And bring that thing home
Hope they they listenin hope
Is this thing on
Fucked up a few times but that's not important
Received a message in a bottle from bermuda
Rode a paper airplane to aruba
Got a dose of holy water from my dilla
Yesterday i made beat wit dila
Dealt a loaded deck but iv never crapped out
Definitely got my ass whooped if i ever dared to act out
It 2017 wonder why good guys still finish lat
Crazy good lies can still cover up the past
Words still hurt worse than any weapon or smith and wesson
I should be more careful and count my blessing
Worse off only a hop skip and jump away
itd be coo if this next line i say this was just a throw away
Sunday morning holy then friday night we raise hell
Rumor has it byron and gucci shared the same cell
I wrote this right before i through some pennies in a wishing well
….


Moderation Conversations, constellation
The stars at night the sky is waitin
Grab yo waist around the way
No waistin time no waistin mine
be patient with my groove
What chu you do to me
I usually speak body language fluently
just dance like its just you and me
Track Name: Diamond Match
Aint this what you asked for
Aint this what you wanted
Compose my magnum opus and expose my soul upon it
sold my soul to be they pawn
If you aint makin em no ends then you aint worth the ground you stand
Nothin to see here folk thank you kindly please move along
Chose this road just to prove em wrong
Lost a couple partners could keep up with the paces
Same dream just a couple new faces
Been the same wince all white air forces with the knot in the laces
them gimmicks don't get you no longevity its time to get back to basics
Rockin a dashiki in the dungeon cookin up something to melt yo face
Ohh ahh we cookin now and i don't see us koolin down
had to learn to appreciate a little before i was blessed alot
started taking having for granted until i had not
they shoot blacks for sport we complain then do the same
please pass the short
Dont deny me my nicotine
Detrimental to my health but man them things can ease the pain
Holding in my two cents is starting to take its tole
Music you had me at hello his eye is on the sparrow
And im sure moses would have voted obama for pharaoh
We workin hard to make it easy and there'd be no such thing as poor if it wasn't for greedy and can't appreciate being rich if you aint never been need
Coward is as coward does aint this what you asked for
aint this what you wanted
Aint this what you asked for
Aint this what you wanted

Grew up up in the wood howlin with the wolves
Starin at the moon
I’m comin home soon
Dealin with the sentimental eyes start to water
Aint this what chu wanted
Track Name: Ms. Etta
Everybody i claimed i loved
Ended up hating me in the end
And every enemy started as a friend to me
People change up like the seasons
destroying a woman's heart and im breaking down myself
I haven't been good to you
What iif i was someone else
Don't take my kindness for weakness
you knew that love was my weakness,
Who knew that love could be a weakness
dont take my kindness fr weakness
you knew that love was my weakness
who knew that love could be a weakness
Have they ever told you that you changed
One look in the mirror you can see similar things
You will defeat all that snarls and scares
It gets easier, easier to bear!


How can i turn my back on you
Only source of my happiness
Only key to my heart's content never let me down
When i was low
You stuck around when i took advantage
Took it all for granted
Ooo why why o why
Don't take my kindness for weakness
You knew that love was my weakness
Who knew that love could be a weakness
Don't take my kindness for weakness
You knew that love was my weakness
Who knew that love could be a weakness
Track Name: Write More
Spent 4 quarters on a pool game
Blow a quarter just about everyday
Testin out effects on my microphone jay say i should stay and write more
Joe came over said he trascribe
Got a music ear and a music eye
We just get together and we make hits
If i gon be singin i should only sip
Byron went to prison He bout 5 4
but i know a nigga never short me though
Out here every weekend with these different chick
One chick illegal on chick like to strip
Ran out on a bill cause we aint rich
Easy pile when i get to rhymin shit
Shorty fine when i get to downin drinks
Wouldn't eat a chicken but i where some mink

Fly team coming through on the scene
always lookin fresh trying to do big things
Tell your friends that there invited
We already got the crowd excited
It might be a cover charge at the door
Jay say you should stay and write more
jay say you should stay and right more

Lately only interested in inner peace
Born broke i die in debt
Shit i got my smile at least
Popped a couple pills past around the party
and now im tweekin
brain cells and backwoods cant a brother have both
let's hope
dealin with some issues im ashamed of
prolly only get worse once we famous can't nobody
tame us rollin up like drew just got off papers
Our palms need greased to
Our songs they rock to
broke is just some shit a bruh could not get used to
Brain cells and backwoods cant a brotha have both lets hope
Track Name: Money Mike
I appreciate the time we've spent on the same page
on your search for truth i am here with you
Let me be who i am, you can be who you are
Let me be who i am
You can be who you are
Track Name: New Organ Ft Kidd O
Droppin all my plans for the weekend
Sittin in the dark and im thinkin
Eyes drinkin drinkin
Problem solving need another method than this
Couldn't face my mamma drinkin liquor and cigs
Memories of better days
Pleasant moments drift away
sometimes i need to meditate
sometimes i need t get aways
Usually im drinkin and thinkin
then i end up sipping and sankin
its gotta be sunshine after the rain
the joy will come right after the pain
Im starting to favor what ive consumed
Numb to the world let the poison be my guide
Im starting to favor what ive consumed
Sorrow to the bottle who knows bout tomorrow
Im starting to favor what ive consumed

The way i see the glass still half full
Back before ove became cool
Prolly hold my head high had i finished school
im at my best when im alone
Sometime i be trippin sometimes im in my zone
sojourner truth still taken trips to the south
Get a little buzz and get some gold in my mouth
ancestors spinnin the grave
Can knock the hustle gotta do what ever pays
On the 6th album still set in my ways
Parents finally realized it ain't just a phase aint justs a phase
So im free to smile
Free to be me free to grow
I dont know what the future holds

Yeah, usually i don't do this/
But tilt my cup, pour that fluid/
Im'a need another organ/
I hope these keys and chords will due/ aye!
Capsized from ocean view/ aye
Sink or swim, i'm floating through/
I can feel the base, i'm swinging for fence, home runner "42"/ yeah

Lately i been in a dark space/
A far place from where i used to be and call safe/
but now i got the combination, "crack" the code,
that's a major "Ki", i locked away/
every thing from last night, try it all again tomorrow
/ let the church say amen,
while i twist this cap and soak my sorrow/ preach/ preach
Track Name: I Wonder
I wonder which way to go and
I wonder whats next
Casue i wonder if ill do my best
Casue i wonder if im living what's right
Will i be alright ya

Steady pacing on my meditation barely racin'
Tryna get these cycles right
to set my base n' raise vibrations
UP!... to the sky to get mine, am not only here to get by,
would like to go calmly when I die.
They say the finer things in life is on top,
Creme and dreams is the feed
All you need is the team
With it waste is the glock
I used to live by that thing fought and took what I need
Knew nothing outside of thee, then fell into the dead scene
Dream is what they told me, the pipes is what they sold me
my hope is how they fueled me,
the lies is what controls me
So I stay in the woke, reject the vain metal ropes,
one thing that they shows, is that ya can't destroy hope
Perhaps I wonder for the stacks
Perhaps I wonder for the facts
Perhaps I wonder for the raps
What good is that?
Instead I'll keep my moments close, until I reach my destined goals,
where all my family lives unbroke and not the brunt of centuries jokes
Track Name: Facebook Ft Shamar Alef
Start in the morning im working like a machine
I feel empowered by positive energy
Workin on your get right aint for nothin
They dont tell you exactly when they comin
I feel a different feeling coming on and i dont think im gonna brush it off
People looking at me in ak different way
All they same people with the strange face


Wake up chasing dream things ain't what they seem
Wake up chasin dreams things ain't what they seem
Somedays things don't go your way
But there's always another day and another day
And another day
There's a monday
There's a tuesday baby girl ya there's a food date and
a real bad mood day so what do you say

Just uploading my avvy
Feelin im savy
Add me at face value
Il show you salase
I’m sad and savvy the sad jusap with a sack beat sage me
Visit my paga and i praise the way you praise me
Cause my defect my detect my ditract matter
Twitter ig i communicate faster on facebook you see my trace took
before rapture b.l.a.c.k
Lives matters
And i hate the way you praise me
I like you i hit the like button
I like the likes up i like ya song i like ya video
I know you like likes well you should like something
Well i dont like this show me the lite of something

Im on the tight rope above clouds
I keep my focus forward i could fall down
I keep a brush on me cj said be smooth on the field
Errbody love my mamma accent on the real

For once in my life i finally feel i have something worth fighting for
For Four years i fought feelings of letting my parents down
Now i i got a feeling that things might be turning round
Wh- what you know about a king trynna chase his crown
Now ho hold on a minute
no no no no you didn't
do exactly what you claimed you would
Say you got some gifts just tryna wrap em right
and now i fill some type of way
aint never been the askin type
a million or two likes away
then imma be the bushe type aint work this hard to stay the same
they say erbody change with fame
I wonder will i change with fame
Track Name: Small Town
Im so sick i gave em all the flu
Being broke i didnt get to choose
Wakin up to win how could i lose
Singin like a bird up in the zoo
Heard em say that theyll do anything
Watch em wake up that was just a dream
Called up up like dont you let it ring
I guess everything is really everything

Im living in a small town called kzoo
Still dreaming from a big town point of view
Im living in a small town called kzoo
Still dreaming from a big town point of view

First to work and il be the last leaving
Its rarely time to decompress
Spent my whole childhood in a church
And still not sure what i believe in
Thats something id hate for my father to hear me confess
Only finished two years of school cause i had to kids
got fired from two gigs cause the bosses was jerks
Quit like 3 jobs cause i was trying to chase a career
Wouldn't be the first to bomb out the apollo
and make it to madison square
plottin where i should
make my big move 2
power to the people that just
Want something they can groove to
Don't lose yourself in the details
spend yo life sellin they retail
The cream gon rise

I been doing everything im supposed to do
I been seeing everything im supposed to see
Word to the wise im the women that im suppose to be
the cream gon rise
