Track Name: GODSgrace(REALfriends)
(intro)
yo/
i'd like to dedicate the following track to all my real peoples out there/
you know/
the ones who keep it real with what they say/
but more importantly/
the ones who keep it real with what they do/
yeah/
and that's the truth/
check it out/

(verse 1)
yo/
now what's the difference between you and me?/
well i do it for the love while you do it for the fee/
what the *&#@?/
you be thinkin' that you gettin' it from me?/
forget it/
you gettin' dropped rocked and thrown out to the sea/
honestly/
you blown out emcees don't phase me/
we bring it to ya thrones drop ya drones ably/
crazy if you thinkin' that your lifestyles rich/
you prone to gettin' splayed out like some mark ass tricks/
i got the fix deep in my center/
creeps sleep when i enter/
when i speak they surrender/
cos i see through pretenders claiming realness when they not/
jus' cos you speak the language don't mean you hip hop/
so jus' stop, knock off the bullsh*t ya talkin'/
wanna keep it real?! well then you better get to walkin'/
backin' up those words that you droppin' cos often/
what you do reflect more on you than what's on the surface/

(hook)
yeah/
this tale begins around the bend/
for all those who pretend?/
and all those who my friends??/
when push comes to shove who remains in the end?/
real love for the ones who keepin' it genuine/
(repeat)

(verse 2)
and blam! damn! Pak is back!/
kopped the heat off my man dj Wunda's track/
gettin' back to the basics face it/
i come to correct crooked vision like a laser Lasik/
you hate this cos i make corrective statements/
but when you fake the game? imma make you face it/
take it to a place where you can not waste it/
i give all i got to keep hip hop blazing/
amazing you can even show your face in/
this place when the space you create is rapin'/
our children and everything you say's endangerin'/
men and women who feel you not breakin'/
the cycle like rifles you come complacent/
complainin' 'bout all while you keep enslavin'/
you can fall from your tall walls brawl and all/
imma ball from the basement/

(hook)

(bridge)
yeah/
now people gonna talk/
a whole lotta "i am this” and "blah blah blah”/
but the only thing that matters in the end/
is whether not they true to what they said/

(verse 3)
yeah/
now if you wanna talk a whole buncha whack?/
understand you gonna get smacked right up off the track/
genuine is not an act/
true life is how you pass through it/
reveal your real and cruise through fluid/
think before you speak and the way in which you do it/
otherwise this beat gonna smack you through stupid/
if you claimin' you the Don? you probably on foolish/
so cool it/
relax/
remember who be the truest/

(hook x2)
Track Name: FLASHbackAHEADofTHEcurve
(intro)
it's all for the love/
yeah/
it's all for the love of the/
yeah/
it's all for the love/

(verse 1)
yo/
on and on it goes/
this story's been told a million times before/
our hero lays face down on the floor/
a million eyes shift view stare then behold/
as his body turns cold but his soul on a journey/
for the time being time stops cos he not returnin'/
while his dj keep turnin' with the records of his raps/
it's all left back in the past with his stacks of memories/
people tearin' up now who's to give the eulogy?/
the few who see recognize on the stage is not who they used to see/
cos the one who passed is the one who never really last through all of these/
copies carbon copies like the poppies stop me if this sounds familiar/
like the scent of sensimillia/
if he only had the sense to tell a few they would remember his name/
but he only did it for the love of the game/
and is this ever gonna change?/

(hook)
who remains in this world unchanged?/
the pain break through through the pain come changed/
gain a sense of perspective/
let this feelin' run ya over 'til ya breathless/
(repeat)

(verse 2)
and they say time waits for no man/
so i go a nomad 'til i find my own land/
a land filled with milk cream and rich like with honey/
cos money ain't a thang 'cept for nickels, dimes and pennies/
and i got plenty/
workin' on the grind i keep steady/
ready for the next even if the next comin' heavy/
like a jetty/
protect 'til my kin come n' get me/
i give it all i got 'til my heart stop wit' me/

(hook)

(verse 3)
now i gaze at the man in the mirror/
i see what i see before the sandman delivers/
dreams seem to keep me on the edge of this river/
do i dive in? go with the current? stand on the bank or jus' shiver?/
like the figure in the eight caught up who can't escape/
with his fate on a plate served in front of his face/
take a taste, but wait, before you do?/
understand one taste gonna lead to two/
and if you do what'cha wanna what'cha wanna do?/
cos there these times in life in which you gonna have to choose one or the other/
i shudder when i don't choose the lover/
but the greatest thing about this life is i can choose the other if i want to/
i can be anything that i want to/
everything that i could possibly want if i want you/
and aren't you just that thing? yeah if you are you/
know that i'm comin' and when i find you i found you/

(hook)

(outro)
it's all for the love/
yeah/
it's all for the love of the/
yeah/
it's all for the love/
Track Name: COMEwithIT(pickUP)
(intro)
yo/
relationships ain't always easy/
ya feel me?/

(bridge)
life/
ain't always an easy road you know/
sometimes you feel high/
sometimes you feel low/
and sometimes, well, sometimes you jus' feel broke/
but hey/
it's okay/
so long as you jus’/


(verse 1)
come with it come as you are/
scarred like two x's ripped marked deep in the heart/
wounds of insecurity lash out against true sincerity/
all i can be is me/
and i refuse to apologize for sharing my joy my glee/
true spirits vibe as i emcee/
speak my mind as my mind speaks for me/
seek the real on the low as the green smoke choke her violently/
those green eyes soaked by red flames of misplaced trust/
and jealousies fan the flames of hate and embers of lust/
my cool i lose til i snap through a million fixed images of/
love the kind you feel when in the morning you waking up/
next to the love of your life who bring to your life the love/
a feeling so appealing revealing i can't get enough/
healing with every desire to give her all that she wants/
but sometimes that's not enough/
she got to get it herself/

(hook 1)
pick up/
the broken pieces and reform this image/
a picture perfect new beginning/
now's the time to get it/
(repeat)

(verse 2)
now i been down on my life at times needing a life line/
my luck seem to turn upside down and down right/
shady feelings like original black concealing/
matter of fact it's beating me down beating me down/
i wonder who hearing me now when it all falls down?/
can you hear me?? could be my new best friend/
understood it's all good though when good i'm reppin'/
though wherever i go it seem a ho be wantin' to step/
temptations always there but hey check it i'm never pressed/
here to toss temptations off and rep real hip hop/
respect mean more than shaking hands and dappin' it fresh/
respect when you treat your girl the way that she be meant to be/
heaven sent to me so we can always be heavenly/
healing with every rhyme metaphysical line energies/
who am i kidding? she musically running through my veins/
taking the pain away and bringing the gain/

(hook 2)
pick up/
when you feelin' down and out on your luck/
make a new sound sing it loud and yo i tell you what's up/
what?/
that you gotta figure out what is that you want/
give it up to live it up but don't bring me (us) down/
(repeat)

(bridge)

(hook 1)

(hook 2)

(outro)
relationships/
ain't always easy ya feel me?/
but yo so long as you jus'/
come with it come as you are/

to the people who be kickin' it back/

one life to live/
so bring it back/

(verse 1)
now it's a sunny Californ-i-day/
all the way out to HI Ha-waii-ay!/
it feels so great with the sun in my face/
take a taste of the breeze..it got a hint of the sea/
and the palm trees green i see lining these streets/
emceeing for the sake of being happy and free/
like my homey dj Wunda who be laying this beat/
play it loud in ya jeep bring it back then repeat/
now if you diggin' on the vibe get ta tappin' ya feet/
noddin' ya heads yeah i see ya smiling cheek to cheek/
this makes me feel complete because you feelin' G/
double O D on the peace like smokin' the leaf/
feel a sense of relief as the stress is released yes/
this is jus' the rest of all that you need/
please just accept what it is that you be/
and we can move on together like the melody/

(hook)

(verse 2)
now i got raps on the cabana rolled up like a Havana cigar/
i come with funky style i never be hard hearted or hard headed/
cos i live with the larger picture/
embedded like the skies with the stars/
i liftcha if ya feelin' like ya never been loved/
come get some if ya want it there's no need to be scarred/
or scared for those impaired by the words that i slur/
ya heard it all before but you ain't ever heard these words before/
performed before your very eyes/
i speak the truth homey only some fools lie/
but why??/
ain't no need for that when i feel live jive high/
lifted shifted gifted jus' like the sun rise/
connect like Wi-fi/
you i? why fight?/
the right type of vibe keep you and i high in flight/
so i like to do like the doers do/
and say "peace catch you later when you come on through"/

(hook)

(bridge)
yeah/
and that's a fact/
haha/
you can count on that/
check it out/
this jus' how we do/

now you soaking up the feeling when you soak in the sun/
you joking with this feeling when you joking having some fun/
and if you open to this feeling then you open to us/
and with you open to the feeling you be open to trust/
just do what you wanna do/
coming through for the people who be coming through for you/
cos that's the only way to give it live it/
when you with it kick it stick it/
deep in your soul center/
you'll be feeling so better/

(hook)

(verse 3)
now it's evenin' time and yo we gotta close this rhyme up/
what better way to do this then to tell you all what's all up/
the hold up is that the love seems to be holed up deep/
only way to come together is for us to speak/
now i understand there's mad men lurking in this world/
tryin' to teach little boys and girls/
the mean things, the bling things, the cash rules everything/
but that ain't right see there's more to this life/
than what the eyes see i see livin' this life/
and what that life means is keepin' on to chasin' ya dreams/
doin' good things and makin' sure to keep earth clean/
and helpin' people out when they ain't got nothing to eat/
havin' good times with friends and everyone that’chu meet/
has got something to teach if you listen to each/
reach inner peace/
through the birds and the trees/
like the birds and the bees/
calm and complete/

(hook, repeat)
Track Name: MAKEsomeNOISE(bumpIT)
(intro)
yeah/
it's time y'all/
time to get it going/

(hook)
now bump it/
yeah/
make some noise/
still poised to destroy the system we join/
said bump it/
yeah/
make some noise/
for the people reppin' peace and who still keepin' they poise/
(repeat)

(verse 1)
i'm still breakin' ragin' against the machine/
got cajun like flavor hot spice when i scream/
fiends know what's happenin'/
they happy daft platinum/
they rackin' they brains tryin' to put us in chains/
but hey!/
the men who adapt fast avoidin' they death traps/
and those who gon' laugh last are those who get laughed at now/
for speakin' the truth the proof is in all that you see/
for me it's the L.O.V.E./

(hook)

(verse 2)
now the picture gets clearer when i see through the fear to change/
the system in place is for the corporate gain/
the pain caused by 'em? too much to relay/
but hey!/
we can try so y'all feel this vibe/
why we can afford to fight wars but not give life?/
universal healthcare mandate this basic right/
let's face it the profits are what now guide/
our system's course of action in this here life/
strife the only outcome for the ones who lie/
time to break it down proper let the truth arrive/
the proof evident if you look beyond the signs/
to the shores of the third world where boys and girls find/
their lives confined by what they bein' denied/
clean water, education, and the means to thrive by/
all cos some guys at the top want it all?!/
no way we say "hey! yo! it's time they fall!"/

(hook)

(bridge)
yeah/
it's time/
time to make some noise y'all/
make some noise for what you believe in/
make some noise for equality/
for justice/
make some noise against those who oppress/
who enslave/
who cripple with debt/
those human traffickers/
those war mongers/
those who preach hate and greed/
check it/

(verse 3)
you gotta filter through the bull which fools gon' pull quick/
the truth through spirit come cool and ooo it's/
the way that you know what you do is cool ish/
the rest left cold don't know they foolish/
losin' they grip on spirit they ego trips with/
delusions of grandeur and hittin' it big if/
they only could phony they souls to switch it/
off and pop off 'bout walls and profits/
corporate politics got me sick to the stomach/
shun it, confronted, done it now no way i can front it/
hunted the illest in this game thinkin' that they can run it/
the name Elohim demeaned by those who be haunted/
and say "give to me! give to me! i'm most important!"/
so my recording is for those who don't wanna be stunted/
who don't wanna give up they dreams for the corporate hundred/
i mean it when i say i pray for all to be loved/
now i say bump it/
yeah/
make some noise/
for the people reppin' peace and who still keepin' they poise/
said bump it!/
yeah!/
make some noise!/
if you livin' still givin' out your dollars and coins/
for the point of living hear this is for us to enjoy/
and if they takin' that away then that's what we will destroy!/
and the only way to do this is for us to deploy/
to use our voices together and together to join!/

(verse 1)
Liberty/
got something to do with this/
don't know what it is?/
well let me get you to the truth with it/
the state of being free within society/
from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority/
on one's way of life, behavior or political views/
the truth is that the savior is in you/
so when the time comes whachu gonna do??/
give up? or stand your ground and power on through/

(hook)

(verse 2)
Freedom/
got something to do with this/
don't know what it is?/
well let me get you to the truth with it/
the power or right to act, speak, or think/
as one wants without any hindrance or restraints/
as the paint dries you can see through the lies of saints/
i mean the so-called ones who call themselves what they ain't/
with the chains that they use to enslave they make they own graves/
while we break away from the pace they set for us/
try to whore us with they Hollywood thrills and green bills/
still we kill em with the spirit we spill instilled in us/
to rid us of the chemical things they still sell us/
we come together spittin' the truth and still zealous for the truth/
while we chill with the ill they can't get us/
cos the way that we livin' is proof of the realest in this game/
peace and love is the name/
respect and unity the flame/

(hook)

(bridge)
can you hear me?/
and believe it or not/
everything can change/
just like that/

(verse 3)
boom! yeah! and the Spirit is back/
like that!/
yeah i be back on the track/
with the bat to crack at it/
fully evolved with a resolve so automatic/
hittin' hard is the static but i'm ready/
yeah i'm ready to come at it/
illmatic like my name be Nas i got status/
and backed by Jehovah Allah i can't vanish/
the way that i roll when i roll my advantage/
and the road that i'm travelin' on is undamaged/
fully invincible with the principle i establish/
i got what it takes to make it to the palace/
while my people got me up in the streets they keep balance/
and everything we doing for peace? it's unchallenged/
cos everything we do it be on the calm chalice/
with the voices as One raise up in the ballad/
comin' through yeah we doin' it true and keepin' at it/

Track Name: WAYbackWHEN
(intro)
my favorite memories?/
where do i even begin/
well i guess the beginning is as good a place as any/
ya feel me?/
yeah/
way back when/
where this all begins/
yo/
i'd like y'all to close your eyes for a minute/
come with me on a lil' journey/
it starts like this/

(verse 1)
roll up a phat one pass it around/
bump up the beat be one with the sound/
lean back lay back look up at the sun/
yeah/
this is what we used to do for fun/
on 'em sun blindin' springtime afternoons/
rollin' 'round town spittin' with nothin' to prove/
hopped in the ride took off for the bay/
flowin' dope rhymes all of the way/
every day a new adventure we had plenty to take/
101 vibe ridin' as the melodies blazed/
of course without a doubt we had plenty to say/
jus' look around wont’cha? don't be afraid/
the pretty blonde meetin' your gaze her hair in a braid?/
or that man with a cigarette pipe and his fade?/
what they say?/
well jus' look close in they eyes/
close your eyes and you can see 'em jus' as close as i/

(hook)
high in the ride with the windows down/
rollin' 'round town livin' life lovin' the sounds/
like this (echo)/
like this (echo)/

(verse 2)
now she took her seat legs crossed flashed a hint of her thigh/
i had to ask her sittin' there "how ya get so fly?"/
she laughed looked me over said “i was her guy”/
like that i was almost taken aback/
'til i realized she was lookin' for love back/
like that we was two found again/
best friends though we didn't really know it then/
'til the first place that you really notice in kicked in/
and i was high on cloud nine/
and ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen and five/
it was a sign really jus' a feelin' inside/
that grew like a vine from the heart to the spine/
and not a day goes by i don't look to the sky/
sayin' "thank you God for the love of my life"/
oh yeah it's A Wonderful Life/
tho with a lil' mo' color mixed with the black and the white now/

(hook)

(verse 3)
now look in to the future what do you see?/
i see me doin' everything i used to be/
'cept for bullsh*t free and with some new beliefs/
straight off that classic tip though i still do speak/
i hit the mic in the night rip the grind in the day/
give up what i can to get a little back in this play/
on and off the stage i rep hard what i spray/
take charge of my fate and make what i make/
i stay away from ones who hate expose those fake/
a lil' bit of love i find is all that it takes/
to create a space so great where all can relate/
pause the beat squash the beef then take it away/
hit the leaf if you feelin' so inclined to recline/
do what you gotta do to keep up on your peace of mind/
if that a piece of mine? then lemme piece it out/
figure out what you about then follow that route/
no matter what you gotta do it up as you feel/
hence the reason why i'm doing what i do when i spiel/
and if it's real? then you got more than you need/
to full power on ahead with all of your steam/
and the more you puttin' in it? the more you receive/
like the same way you waterin' life outta your seed/
first believe, then work hard and you can achieve/
yeah/
each and every single one of your dreams/

(hook x2)

to a time when/
everything was all good in the hood man/
(repeat)

(verse 2 – wunda)
‘bout ten years old justa rollin' on my bike/
starin' at you girl cuz you looked nice/
swingin' on playgrounds n' runnin slip n' slides/
thinkin' that one day we could be tight/
on the grounds where i played we just did it all day/
keepin' it fresh like this i gotta say/
holdin' hands n' playin' truth or dare/
back then when people really cared/
now turnin' the knob up like bumpin' JBL's/
young kid pimpin' a black Taurus for real/
cruisin' fast corners n’ makin' wheels squeal/
always stayin' fresh yes that's the deal/
cuz in this life we all kings n' queens/
we all deserve respect like royalty see/
the promise one day to take us all home/
a place to be free and it won't be long/

(verse 3)
now this lyric goes out to my women and men/
all my friends who happen to be out on the bend/
or on the mend if you feelin' like you needin' it and/
only way we get to sleep is prayin' for peace Amen/
around the world it goes for those who in need/
feel the breeze with the notes laced deep in the keys/
C to D to E to F to G and A to the B/
off the record kop the sample now the scale is complete/
if you see what i see? then you seein' the need to bring it back/
practice what we used to be/
spiritual beings on a higher level walkin' with kings/
where the money's dummy funny and don't mean a thing/
cos we were all for the cause of helping humanity/
to get along singin' these songs and reppin' for peace/
from the castle to the streets/
no matter your scene?/
we one and the same/
yeah you know what i mean/

(bridge)
you know what i mean?/
yeah/

hahah/
Wunda and Pak/

Track Name: RHYME4aREASON(theREASONweRHYME)
(intro)
yo/
everybody listenin' right now/
let me ask you a question/
you ever wonder why we do this?/
ever wonder why we rhyme?/
well imma tell you right now/
check it out/

(hook)
rhyme for a reason/
the reason we rhyme/
what's life?/
the reason we rhyme/
what's right?/
the reason we rhyme/
what's light?/
the reason we rhyme/
now it's up to you to decide/

(verse 1)
now the times through the seasons they change like ill demons/
remain in this game? believe you gon' see 'em/
denial is tricky like a web feelin' sticky/
but when the time comes? we change to keep kickin'/
cos chains only chain the brains of those iffy/
so break from your chains we saved if y'all with me!/
God gave the Way we pray for our cities/
and give what we've got to give to keep livin'/
forgivin' every single soul on these streets/
for we all sinners in our own rights when we meet/
fight the light in your life?! you might as well be asleep/
the dawn reserved for those who guide with the peace right?/
the mic is meant to be respected/
and when you grippin' it? it's your soul you representin'/
whether empty as a hole or fiery as this record/
the culminating end is dependent upon your efforts/

(hook)

(verse 2)
check it/
my crew and i we been through a lot/
but jus' like you? oh yeah we don't drop!/
struggles come every day strivin' for the top/
but when the bustle of the hustle get too much?? we gotta stop/
and check it!/
forget tryin' to get up in the spot/
number one is a relative concept not rock/
meaning not solid meaning it's not being like a block/
of granite granted i'm feelin' like some days i'm feelin' locked/
stop!/
i got the power what i need to hop/
over any thing tryin' ta get in ma way as a block/
i will pop while i fight the ticker tocking off the clock/
like Allah representin' representatives of Jah/
come on!/
we got that rocket that you feelin' on to ride/
come on!/
we got that knowledge that you feelin' in the vibe/
come on!/
we got the message that you feelin' in this rhyme/
come on!/
we got the reason it's time for you to decide/

(bridge/verse 3)
now too many come and go/
and not too many know/
the power of the reason and the power of the flow/
too many losing hope/
and not too many can cope with the truth/
yeah/
when the truth's tellin' you what it wants/
too many feel they alone/
and plenty feelin' they grown/
ready steady they comin' empty thinkin' that they own/
they lives when really all they own is the lies upon they bones/
too many think they prone to have to live inside this zone/
when they not realizing that the lies are all they own/
and the life that you are wanting is the life that you could own/
if you could only look inside take a second and free your soul/
behold!/
what makes you whole grab a hold and never let go/
behold!/
what gives you hope and a reason to carry on/
behold!/
what brings you comfort from the fury of the storm/
behold!/
all that you are and be all that you are alone/
come on!/
you got the power that you needin' it's inside/
come on!/
you got the wisdom that you seekin' in your eyes/
come on!/
you got the weapons that you needin' in this fight/
come on!/
you got the reason it's time for you to decide/

(verse 1)
hope/
those pearly gates/
when we start to embark they await/
the ones who make peace and stray from the hate/
it's not too late/
to transform your heart/
to make the change/
and it can be hard/
but it's worth it y'all/
we come from a place/
where we can be safe/
we all make mistakes/
and that's ok/
we got what it takes/
to break from our chains/
i seen it/
believe when i say it, i mean it, i done it/
and that aint' no frontin'/
cos i been on something called truth/
look at my life microscope see the proof/
got a few clues from the people around me who done this now too/
and when the sounds sound right? you know it sounds true/
so do whachu' do though keep it love too/
and we can make it through/
we gon' make it through/
believe that/
hope/

Hope/

(verse 2)
love/
it got a place/
in every space/
it's on it's way/
be not afraid/
the only way/
is to be brave/
cradle to grave/
free men or slave/
ink on the page/
we can create/
we got the rhymes/
you get the tapes/
let's set the pace/
we can escape/
from one to one?/
we run this race/
this what we chase/
not 'bout the cake/
we 'bout the music the message our fate/
the rest of the pressure come from those who fake/
but we never measure our selves to those apes/
cos we got the greats/
Mandela, Martin, Mahatma, Jemison Mae/
they paved the way/
for us to be saved/
and it's up to us/
to rep for today/
love/
