Track Name: I'm Still
I'm Still (Marley, Lavish, Silex, Dejazz & Ebonic Raven)

Marley
I'm still, ill here ready to kill/ I'm still rappin' like an animal/ I'm still trying to stack all types of capital/ Flow blowing like a daffodil/

Lavish
I'm still a kid but my body is older/ They say I'm colder, I say I'm October/ I'm up front and realer/ And more than ever/ Change for the better/ That's what I tell her/ I used to be inside with nothin' to do/ Now nobody could really step in my shoes/ The mistakes I corrected made me who I am/ ''I am a man''

Silex
Silex or you can call me Sam, yes I am/ Still the son that my parents raised/ True to my words, values at the right place/ Close to my heart, still passionate about life/

Dejazz
''I'm still'', that phrase is static/ I'm grounded by granite/ Bold as graphite/ With no alike/ Hip-hop needed a heart and mine's been transplanted/ Never again taken opportunities for granted/ I'm still candid/ Utilizing this urban language/ Every word is Purolator packaged/ Never experience a power outage/ I illuminate like lamp posts/ Over soulful samples/ Everything happens for a reason/ And I broke my ankle/ Another part of my story that I unravel/ God gave me time to spiritually travel/ Possess the blood of an Israelite/ Undiluted/ Like the great exodus led by moses under JAH/

Silex
Explore the environment at my own pace/ Never let my dreams go to waste/ And hey! When my motivations change/ I go green recycle my dreams in different ways/ Flexible, adaptin' to last minute change/

Dejazz
I start a movement/ The truth is being commuted when I conduct this music/ I build stanzas so there is always room for improvement/ I don't associate with a Judas/ I haven't attracted bad credit/ Wool fabric fresh outta the dryer/ I'm ultra magnetic/ I'm so stagnated/ Never change no I'm not nickel plated/ In the hood I'm still situated/ Sticking to basics/ Deeper than notes played by a bassist/ Bound to bust I fly to places I'm a bullet train/ Joseph is my name I'm still the same, yes sir!

Lavish
Ok I came from a long way/ Thankful like a Sunday/ I remember when I played video games all day/ Now I'm writing more bars like the number after Andre/ Learning to stop and listen to another might say/ As a lad I didn't know what I had/ Years went by and I feel glad/ To know I have life in my hands and I carry on and think twice when I can/



Ebonic Raven
It's the Wizzard, the mathematician that's spitting and grabbing isms of wisdom/ Insisting on inflicting this deadly rhythm/ Still iller than sickle cell/ With the pencil I bring my will/ Instrumentals are getting filled with the brillance I reveal/ Too exquisit with mass appeal as he's passing through the hill/ Feeling passionate 'bout my skills/ Slammin' it for the real/ Slappin' rappers so rapidly, snatchin' their gravity/ Slashin' their cavities/ Check my rapsody/
Track Name: Cracked Windows
Cracked Windows (Marley, Oxymore & Hazer)

Chorus
I remember way back in the ghetto when i was little/ Cracked window in the master bedroom/ But it was all good, livin' in the hood/ Livin' in the hood, livin' in the hood/ Give me that 514, give me that 514/ Give me that 514, give me that 514/ Livin' in the hood, livin' in the hood/

Oxymore
Je viens du continent invisible/ Et ce voyage m'a fait invincible/ À leurs yeux je suis sorti de nulle part/ Les épreuves me font plus fort mais ne me tuent pas/ Je rappe tout-par pendant que les MC font des touze-par/ Je viens du Vanuatu, j'en ai fait un atout/ Même si je n'suis qu'un sale bab-tou/ Et qu'on me frappait à la récré/ En m'appelant face de craie/ Quand j'écris, les tasses crient/ Je suis un mécréant m'écriant avec mes crayons/ Et mon blaze restera gravé, j'ai gravi les montagnes et les océans/ Avec ce son né des palmiers/ Des bananes, et des paniers de coco/ J'ai vu les touristes sourire/ Prendre de la coco/ Je crois qu'y a un quiproquo/ Avec leurs portefeuilles en croco/ Ils ont volé la terre des indigènes indigents/ Je me suis toujours méfié des gens qui se disent intelligents/ Peut être que je ne suis pas très che-ri/ Mais au moins dans ma vie moi je ris/ Et ne croit pas que je crache dans la soupe/ Le voyage j'aurais bien pu le faire dans la soute/

Chorus

Hazer
Chaque soir c'était barres, pétards/ À se taper des bars, une bande de fêtards/ Toujours à l'arrosoir accoudés au comptoir/ Le regard hagard égaré à regarder les meufs/ Pour niquer les keufs arrêter les reufs/ Et je ne vous oublie pas de lobby à roumi de sage à déka/ En passant par les jahs et la alternative familia/ Affirmatif, ça bouge pas, le kiffe ne part pas/ Et la mif j'oublie pas/ La blanche, on a craché dessus et ça, j'en suis pas déçu/ Des reproches j'en ai reçu, le manque je l'ai perçu/ Et même je le perçois/ Les choses que j'aperçois/ Guident mes pas/ Toujours des flèches dans mon carquois/ Tel un iroquois avec ses gars/ Connu pour nos cones et pour la déconner/ Des icônes des connes/ La réputation s'est faite à force de faire la fête, se casser la tête/ Pour chopper la verte, je t'assure tu n'es pas prête/ Pour le GSD la porte est toujours ouverte/

Chorus
Track Name: Rappers
Rappers (Lavish)

I write cause I'm good at it/ And my flows automatic/ And straight tragic/ Oh you're fantastic? Man I wish you well with that/ You need a lot of words in your thinkin' cap/ And real and original on any track/ Copy another artist that's wack/ And if your writing, you gotta suffer from writer's block/ That sucks in means your brains suck you can't write/ but a lot of rappers are nice, in their own ways/ Some spit just to get paid/ Some should just flip the page/ Some think they're the best, I think that's the worst/ But it don't get on my nerves, I fly with the birds/ Cockiness don't mean nothing unless you got intelligence/ Cockiness is different from confidence/ Nowadays I don't hear real music/ So I go on classics and spit acids/

Chorus (2x)
Rappers, actors, lyricist, writers where do you fit in?/ Rappers rapping - this is my thing/ And I'ma do it 'til the end/ I'm never signing off, this is no pretend/

I enjoy to destroy, oh boy I'm employed/ Press record, promise you won't be bored/ Aboard with me I'm sending rappers to the morgue, oh lord/ My flow dirty like mold/ Spark fire like cole, J's on my feet/ Name starts with L, listen to me preach/ Positivity should be how you preach/ I speak about what I see in the streets/ And should be released/ In a little body still sound like a beast/ Living for the moment 'til I'm deceased/ Flowin' 'til I make my words increase/ My rap is my hobby, careless if i sound corny/ I tell my own story/ ''money, money, money'' often the top topic/ Mixtape coming, can't wait to drop-drop it/ Music is patience, kill with no hesitation/ I got reservations for progression/ You want an invitation, you want information?/ Replay my information/

Chorus (4x)
Track Name: Rock to the Beat
Rock to the Beat (Dejazz & Ebonic Raven)

Chorus (2x)
Rock to the beat, get wrecked on the regular/ Listen to me because I cause mass hysteria

Dejazz
I tell a story like Aesop/ Surviving is my day job/ Manufacturing popcorn, Orville Redenbacher's/ Hip-hop is an art form and we are Picassos/ Lyrics always make sense/ Never value dollars/ Treated with honors/ Graduated from the corners/ Transitioning into owners/ We're lyricists without boarders/ On the frontline we soldiers/ From my mother take orders/ Conduct Cosa Nostra/ I move like a mobster/ Associate with closers/ To gain security like I ride with OnStar/ Help my brother own a restaurant and Marley open that clothing store/ Dreams of an entrepreneur/ My brother was known for moving raw/ My sister interested in law/ I got two more Yahsua and Yashima/ They both stars/ Cadillac Records I'm Adrian Brody the benefactor/ Pass around the coleslaw/ Uncle Lou gave the booth to us/ Though it's not closed shop/ Create a contrast so sharp/ Images are our products call us panasonic/ My illness is chronic/ I'm influenced by various artists/ Showing street prophets homage/ Off of knowledge the youth profit/ Education brightens up prospecta/ And I'm heading for a communication doctorate/ Real life is the the topic/ I leave a fossil they should document/ My goal is to spread like oil through every continent/ Witness the rising son revealing GOD's awesomeness/ We making music that got people shaking like condiments/ Plus we brining awareness to your consciousness/

Chorus

Ebonic Raven
Metaphors and punchlines can open ya mind/ I keep the cannon smoking/ Cause when I'm flown' it's lunchtime/ I crush mic's, I blow ice, I'm spitting out spikes/ When I write I light the city on fire/ My bars decapitate, assassinating fakes/ Smash they face into concrete/ Move wrong and you'll see/ I'll wreck the deck off your teeth/ If you looking for beef.../ Nah never that/ You're too much of a wussy to eat/ It's just so easy to see/ When I spit this, it's like syphilis to ya ears/ Cats get squished like insects/ I'm ripping this ish/ Split the dictionary in two, I'm killing the words/ With the verbs that I be murkin' I'm serving MC's/ With degrees that can squeeze, I'm freezing the beat like an iceberg, I sink/ A ship like Titanic/ I'm a bandit with the lyrics/ A blizzard that speaks/ Cool as winter in December/ It's Wizzard the beast from the East/

Chorus
Track Name: Visions of Insanity
Visions of Insanity (Ebonic Raven)

Witness discrimination, inside this nation, that we claim as sacred/ The system's shaking, cause we made it into simple living/ They list the immigrants as criminals, in many districts/ They strictly wishing to see us, deceased or barely breathing/ People be thinking that they heroes by killing the negros/ Deceitful and so typical, it's getting me pissed/ To be a victim of this weekly, as I reach through the streets/ Men and women stare and grilling at this kid named Rasheed/ Over the pigment of his skin, being different than theirs/ Ridiculous ish, I'm sick of this here, I'm flipping the script/ Forbidden written as I'm building the shift (yeeah)/ Still in existence is this ignorance in citizens here, fear of a black planet/ That's why they standing under blankets,I'm like ''damn it!'' filled with anger could strangle a rabbit cause they managed to turn me savage, by the language they using/ Damaging children, with their ranting to vanish humanity/ This is visions of insanity/

Chorus
Through the valley of insanity, it's hard to be me/ I just wanna live in peace, fly away from this grief/ Yet I'm getting depressed, I'm sick of this mess/ Got me stress bout to tomorrow, it's the sorrow of living/ So just listen to my lyrics, to decipher my feelings/ Valley of insanity (2x)

Feeling sorrow from the burrow of my heart and my stomach/ Start to vomit from the stress, massive treads of depression/ Gone aggressive and depressive, cause I'm very upset/ Sick of ridiculous and hideous facts, we lack in vanity/ This crap is such a tragedy, I'm terribly mad/ Every place I go, I'm facing many traces of hate/ Basic thinkers reigning over faithfulness it's a trip/ Arranging racism in nations, through the way they portraying/ The so called negros as criminals, convicted as sinners/ Is this real for an Israelite that lives in society?/ I know Satanas wants us hanging from branch until we crash/ And pass away into the chainy waves, finally break, but I'm reciting from my mind/ That the time will arrive, to say goodbye, to all the shattered dreams and finally see/ The end of suffering and struggling for many mc's, inside the seeds of depression/ We keep on stressing, this is visions of insanity/

Chorus

Been riddin' solo on this road, I don't know where it goes/ Feeling colder than the ocean, in December I froze/ The temperature continues dropping as I'm locked in my thoughts/ Gotten bitter overtime seeing winter and crimes/ Enter the depressing and distressing days, heavy with pain/ Will the rain ever stop? 'til my brains start to pop/ Burning flames on my brain, turning chains into blades/ Picking cards no spades, I'm playing this game/ Life's drama got me scarred, I'm bleeding it hard/ Breathing heavy, every second, losing sleep on a regular/ These people got me heated, over ways I've been treated/ Phrasing barriers of anger, changing chapters for answers/ Replacing data about our ancestors, they rather we clash/ Grab attention of our bredrens, tell 'em, what has begun/ The fall of Babylon is imminent, the system will fall/ Plus the destruction of this company, the trumpet as blown/

Chorus
Track Name: Smile
Smile (Lavish, Silex & Marley)

Chorus
What makes you smile I wanna know, can I know?/ What makes you smile I wanna know, can I know?/ I'll tell you a little something if you let me know (HEY!)/ I'll tell you a little something if you let me know/

Lavish
It's the love from my parents that makes me smile/ Memories of me living freely as a child/ The sun and the sky, the rain and the clouds/ The people that stuck around when I was down/ Those that hold their ground, ain't afraid to speak up loud/ When I see brothers and sisters tryin' to achieve/ Those that don't doubt and learn to believe/ My favourite food that I get a chance to eat/ It's the life that I live that's ''oh so sweet''/ And the motivation I have to speak and defeat/ Body in shape, I'm thankful for a heart that's not weak/ Happy for the chance to see another week/ A heartbeat from a close friend to me/ Ability, nationality that I'm proud to be/ A birth of a new born/ Rainbow after storm/ Beautiful woman in all forms/

Chorus (2x)

Silex
What makes me smile, the beauty of the present moment/ Mpenzi yangu, the person I share this life with/ In the morning when I wake up, feeling like life is a piece of pie/ I close my eyes and relish, cherish/ Grab the phone and make a long distance/To express my gratitude to my parents/ And make my sister laugh/I recall things from the past and surprise myself with a smile/ I would go hundreds of miles in the wild/ Runnin' like when I was a child/ Many places feel like my domicile/ As long as my values match my lifestyle/ I will enjoy life in different ways/ I am blessed by grace, I embrace my days/ And for my last say/ Keep a smile on your face/Yeah, keep a smile on your face/

Chorus (2x)

Marley
What makes me happy is a question too deep/ Cause I'm a little obese/ And you think I probably represent greed/ Wrong or right/ Think whatever you like/ I don't care if it's polite/ My smiles get wild when I see a nightstick smash against a window/ In the hands of a poor homeless widow/ Making cream with the team cause there's people to feed/ Even when there's no need cause back up's good for my peeps/ Talking to the crackheads in the struggle watching them rustle and tussle with the devil's muscles/ For a bundle of change to get their fix/ And then watchin' them turn around/ With a frown and shout out ''what you lookin' at
b=!`*?''/ I smile when it's four in the morning and everything is quiet and boring/ Making noise with the boys of my core influenced by my poise, ready to kick in doors!/

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: Opposite Visions
Opposite Visions (Silex Feat. Eva)

Ready to speak, travel from country to country/
Climb the highest peaks to gain more perspective/
My personal perception is positive/
But all ain't bright illuminate (illuminate)/
Society's imprinted with, negativity/
Maintain that state of mind, see why
It's collectively defective (defective)/
Abuses are perpetrated, dissimulated/
Conflicts wicked, characters frigid/
The body's there, but the spirit is naked/
Cold hearted, like it's been incarcerated/
Isolated, they say “war-for-peace” (peace)/
Why would war and peace be hyphenated? (why?)/
The medias illustrate the world as faded/
They persuade that everything's degrading/
Spreading the belief that we near the end/

Eva & Silex Chorus (2x)

We living in this world, So beautiful so bad/
What will lead us to change?/ Let's create our own dance/
Together with our vision/ We will find a solution/

We will get through the mission/
We will clear the confusion/
Say something if you want more/

The medias illustrate the world as faded/
Portray humans and their tendency to hate/
And lose faith, wait! Check your single word/
Big brother with the power is watching/
And pockets with the money are laughin'/
It's a mockery, another day/
Another headline, I meant to say/
On the cover of the newspaper/
Another tragedy and another day (another day)/
Controversies, corruption (corruption)/
Racists keep their old beliefs/
Without even knowin' people encourage slavery (Still)/
Kids are working in the factories underpaid/
And the family barely got somethin' to eat/
Truly, the world is shakin'/ But we can get it back on its feet/
We can get it back on its feet/

Chorus

Reality seen with different eyes/ Visualize
The vitalization, self-motivation/
Lead the actions, everyday sun arises/
No matter rain or sunlight/ In my vision, life! (life)/
Gotta be glamorized/ On the road of livin' (huh)/
The ride symbolizes the ultimate prize/
Horizon is the reachable goal/
Our passion is the true gold/
Hold it tight (Jyeah!) and never leave it behind/
Sculpt images drawn in your mind/
Seize the moment, realize what's given/
Deeply the truest gifts from within (Listen)/
Warm wind delightedly blows on skin/
Back in time, back when time wasn't a notion/
Let's seek options/ Swimmin' with the dolphins in the ocean/
Look how we can truly change the world we live in/ With a positive vision/

Chorus
Track Name: Clear Sky
Clear Sky (Silex, Lavish & Dejazz)

Silex
One, two, three, ready or not, action!/ I rhyme with passion, design my own fashion/ Achieve what I can imagine, my dreams/ Ayo Lav, tell 'em how we do/

Lavish
Always spittin' rhymes/ I can't make time/ Too busy on my grind/ I'm a different kind/ That's hard to find/ I stay in line/ Keep out of mind/ I'm just trying to shine/ (I'm just trying to shine)/

Silex
Look up! The clouds disappearin' the sun gives us a sign/ Bright light is here to stay we in a positive state of mind/ How far we gon' go? (That's easy to say)/ As long as there's today (we gon' keep goin')/ Yeah! We gon' keep goin'!/ Options unlimited, flowin' in the ocean/ Flyin' in the air, choose your direction/

Chorus
Ne me regarde pas, je reconnais cet air là/ Encore un éclat de larmes dans tes yeux/ Je n'en sais pas la raison, je n'ai pas de solution/ Tu m'imposes tes humeurs, tu m'en veux/

Lavish
Now, now, now, now, now listen to a pro flow/ Incredible, special, unforgettable/ I'm a gift, like paper and a bow/ Heading for success you're not in my road/ When I rhyme, I glow for sure/ Bro said go slow, cause I'm living fast/ But I'm doing right you ain't even got to ask/ Bring me that beat and I'm ready to smash/ Ain't got to be first, can't be last/ A lie is like glass see right through/ My mind's on math/ How about you? I stick to my words/ Paper and glue/ Everything I spit is so true/ You ain't got a clue on what I could do/ I'm looking for a boo loves comes out the blue/

Dejazz
Stream of conscious that means auto-pilot/ Hidden lines penetrating ultra violet/ Vocabulary enormous plus my phonics direct/ No matter the dialect techs generate respect/ And I haven't even translated yet/ Heart is what I interject/ With the neural network I intersect/ Intellect causes the need for the mind to interpret/ It's obvious today rappers are puppets for green they're Kermit/ You must be self-sufficient if you're living life as a hermit/ My brother is just started a business is selling clothes/ Without a government permit/ I share the same views of making sure/ My family is never shirtless/ The hustle, I learned it from my father/ Who was serving detergent/ Quick money is worthless compared to the time you're serving/ Clocks keep turning/ I'm discerning, how to make moves in this urban landscape/ Social networking do it through a handshake/ Eye contact so concentrate/ Water is the beverage, when I see my reflection off the lake I see straight/ Looking for a wifey no speed date/ Life is precious get paid in full no rebates/ My music's never centred on money so I don't inflate or exaggerate/ I just relate my experience/ Like I'm in a room full of brothers and a spliff/ We're making instant hits/ Colour blind still possess Stevie's gifts/ I'm so on key call me pianist/ Invoking sight within the sightless/ Thank JAH who'll supply/ Power for the light switch/ I wish I was that righteous/ But hand eye coordination is where my mind splits/ Its a certified ghetto publisher/ I paint a small picture/ But when you frame it/ It gets bigger/ In the future I'm tryna' win a Pulitzer/

Chorus
Track Name: 360 Degrees
360 Degrees (Dejazz)

I'm literate when I leave my fingerprint/ Impressing black ink on a document/ My rap sheet/ Camera's flashing/ Under surveillance/ I've just been escorted by the bailiff/ The judges gave a sentence/ Files of pages on desk/ Lawyers carrying suitcases/ Dressed to address/ My mother is a witness along with other youth that digressed/ Some getting off light/ Others going up north forthright/ Before entering the courtroom/ I rejected liars to be ill-advise/ I laid my eyes on/ Snakes in disguise/ Father always came to court looking nice/ Judgement takes ponderation/ In that case I thought twice at the crossroads we see/ A turnaround in lives from a parole officer/ I received advice I don't remember/ Surrounded by other youth offenders/ When it comes up to it/ Only one with us is our mothers/ Lawyers trying to leave us confused/ I refused legal aid/ Frustrated cause he didn't get paid/ He tried to get the case delayed/ But I didn't even show up at my first court date/ So you think I want to stay on another display/ To a road to hell? Already knew what I was going to say/ Selassie I had me on trial/ I know I'm guilty for robbing that Jesus piece/ Sprite and codeine/ It's funny when I got caught even the jolly ranchers I had were stolen/ I earned strikes like bowling/ I remember at the moment/ Security guard tried to shake me up/ Got himself chocked up/ He tried to press charges with no luck/ Second time I spent my day in a cell/ I came to the realization: jail is equivalent to hell/ You can say politically I am liberal/The only way I live my life is being real/ I tell my life story like it was theatrical/ Now microscope back to the reel/ I'm confined to this cell where the devils dwell/ Possessed by the evils oppressing the people/ Why I drank NyQuil? I really can't explain but it would make sense if I used it to ease my pain/ And I robbed the chain for street fame/ Yet some have more profitable ideals/ Than making a living off of crack sales/ A similar struggle for the financial trouble/ Crack seems to make the pennies double so the pots could bubble/ And it's one way you can be constructive amongst the rubble/ Cause what you learn in the worldwide ghetto is to hustle/ In the block apartments/ Drugs get smuggled/ Cointel protocol: to keep the blacks humble in a more vulgar sense/ Jewelry and clothes make up for a lack of confidence/ In the hood there hasn't yet been an armistice/ Honest men trying to help mama with the rent/ Or often you hear tales of people sleeping in parc kent/ The plights of impoverishment/ That's why our attitudes are against pockets full of lint/ My pops had the attitude of forget a “nine to five”/ ''I'ma get rich or die trying" rather than make a dollar and fifty cents'/ That's a slave drive/ Work hard and it's still hard to survive/ That's life/ Within it all, drug dealers, thieves and the innocent/ Lose their life trying to make a sacrifice/ Dying violently it's like we hear no evil cause we live silently/ But this poetry gave us a means to speak/ Now i place my fingers on a different rap sheet/ My life in perspective told on an angle of 360 degrees...yes sir!/
Track Name: War
War (Siex & Dejazz)

Silex
Cold to the bone, atrocities are committed/ Dead bodies indeed replace stones/ Individuals turn to clones, military brothers/ Submit to the orders, until the war is over/ Nobody can put the weapons down and knuckle under/ Soldiers fight, babies crying at night/ Wars engender diverging effects like/ Cocos and the Nazca plates/ Victims are traumatized, Families divided/ Children taken away, young girls kidnapped and traded/ Cruelly they end up as sex slaves/ Infected by aids/ Whole villages irradiated by raids/ Afraid, kids scared to death to be abducted by Armies like LRA/ Still people have faith/ Prayin' everyday for better days/ Wishin' to forget their enemies' face/ A few are rescued, many with no clue (no clue)/ Most die, physically or inside/ Leavin' only blood and cries, what's left to realize?/ Will the leaders finally look in the sky and say (say what?): “We've had enough of this nonsense!”/ What's to blame, why this violence?/ No war can ever have a valuable motive, break the silence/

Dejazz
Nuclear meltdown/ Apartheid in Cape Town/ Gun shots shape sounds/ That children hear/ Nuclear winter causing the coldest year/ People feeling cold war fear/ Cause there is still a threat of nuclear warfare/ In a state of poverty and welfare/ More money spent on the military budget than on health care/ Corporate sponsors and governments get the lion's share/ Caught in a colonial snare/ Over resources reserves flare/ Taste the blood in the air/ The earth is porous and absorbs the red tears/ Of gas a situation that can't be masked/ And is drawing out the crowd in mass/ Burying a child is not an easy task for a mother/ U.N. allows states to market lethal weapons/ That find there way in the hands of child soldiers/ Military's predatory tactics used to dishonour and dehumanize/ The ones who call others terrorists are the ones who terrorize/ Religion becomes politicized/ Hatred is used to incite genocide/ Conquer through divide/ The confusion is all lies that the media televised/ Wars are always strategized and the pot is comprised of the pieces of the prize/ In hydrocarbon society we live energy dependent lives/ Where oil is needed for the economy to survive/ We built a first world paradise by creating third world lives/ But to support it many more are going to die/ Middle eastern militants still respond to the law/ An eye for an eye it makes sense/ Around the world revolutionaries throw up clenched fist/ While paramilitary organizations playing risk/ To preserve the wealth of the rich/ And keep us in brackets/ The 99 percent in impoverishment/ Unity is strength, showing solidarity through the occupy movement/ Giving the class conscious awareness of the essence of the world's conflicts/ But we're fighting to get war abolished, yes sir!

Speech: Haile Selassie UN Speech (1963)
Track Name: K.I.N.G. (Knowledge Is Never Granted)
K.I.N.G. - (Knowledge Is Never Granted) (Dejazz, Silex, Marley)

Dejazz
My kingly character causes a natural phenom/ The strings we attached to vibrate the kings of Leone/ Before the first name add the don like Corleone/ Matriarchal system at home/ Ambiant reflect the neon/ I deliver crown jewels direct from Sierra Leone/ 93 when I was born/ I'll rock the microphone to infinity and beyond/ Making music that's timeless/ It will last for eons/ Karl Kani waterproof fabric the colour dijon/ Walking through Alexis-Nihon/ In fashion/ Heading to class and looking for a queen willing to link with/ A ghetto youth like Jasmin/ All my life I felt a pain that can't be relieved by Aspirin/ Clothes matching my mind state/ Timberlands on my feet make my attire complete/ I'm straight hip-hop/ My art-work reflects reality/ I keep those who know loyalty close to me/ Servin' Haile Selassie I/ The divine king/ Adorn us with royalty/ Like King David, blessing me with this poetry/ My dynastic link with JAH is not symbolized by a rosary, it gets deep/ Like the vision Joseph had of stars bowing before his feet/ My brother said ''looking good is not cheap''/ Well to be a king there is an expense/ Lead by influence/ Christ made the greatest sacrifice when they nailed him to the crucifix/ In North America where the Ten Lost Tribes mix/ In the melting pot, modern monarchs/ Representing god/ The lord said “go forth and subdue the Earth”/ So I maintain the Scarface motto ''the world is yours'', yes sir!

Chorus

I'm a K.I.N.G./ You know it's loyalty before royalty for K.I.N.G./ I stay humble cause I'm here to save another I'm a K.I.N.G./ You can tell by the way I look and act that I'm a monarch I'm a K.I.N.G./ And I live by the code ''death before dishonor''/

Silex
Red strong cedar, true power of a leader/ Tie the links and bring his folks/ In the right direction like he's a future reader (reads the future)/ Solidifies a nation through the speakers, solutions seeker/ And he who digs deep finds treasures/ Ideas expressed by words and gestures/ A king is surrounded by dream achievers/ Caught in a long lasting fever/ His optimism is contagious/ His mind is in link with his heart/ Plus he sees far like a visionary/ Sight goes past the struggle/ Insure all is provided with substantial needs/ Every voice is heard, nobody's hurt/ Positive change occurs finally/ I quote Mandela (listen), "It always seems impossible until it's done"/ Now a chief can help you foresee success in the long run/

Marley
Once only wise, he was once young and clumsy/ His locals yodelled in their vocals he was once a dummy/ Walking through the forest, barking up the wrong trees/ He fell and stumbled constantly/ Standing was something he thought he could never achieve/ Time was depressing practice/ Wearing out his knees/ And the day came where the pain drifted away/ And he can walk like a king, talk like a king/ Not taking any orders/Learning from the elders/ Setting up shelter/ Maneuvering his skill, left and right/ For forward peaceful nights/ For the youngest, plunging his hand in the dirt/ Playin' in the dirt/ Worse than the rumors of a peasant/ While making it pleasant for those/ Who live in his houses and walk on his roads/ Setting an example for everyone to sample/ That a king doesn't need a crown to rule but a consciousness/

Chorus
Track Name: La Blanche (Bonus)
La Blanche (Bonus Freestyle) -
(Lavish, Lou Piensa, Hazer, Silex, Oxymore, Ebonic Raven, Dr. MaD)


Lavish
Flow fire I'm higher won't retire require the entire empire/ I'm not a lighter filled with gas like a lighter/ I'm kinda tighter/ But tryna' live fat, with a cat, and a stack/ Outside the crib is a gucci mat/ I attack and in fact, I know how to act/ You lack my click clack split u like a Kit Kat/ Forget the chit-chat I'm where the heats at/

Ladies and gentlemen, my sentiments are never in favour of bettering unlawful settlements/ Now let 'em in/ We better win/ We crossed more deserts than bedouins/ A veteran, I've done more late night shows than David Letterman/ I still love H.E.R. though I met her when/ She was a better lover when she listened to her own soul instead of men/ In the dead of night, I remember when she woke me up and pumped me with Adrenalin/ Schools were pushing Ritalin/

Hazer
Je vis la rue seul ou avec le crew/ Je ris à la vue de ton faux rap de fou/ Je crache le feu, toi tu baves gros/ Je cache mon je, dans ma tête c'est le chaos/ Et les gars, yo! Il faut vivre je veux rire, ivre de rap music/ Tu t'affaiblis, moi je taffe mes rimes/ On vient buter la concurrence mesquine/ Aka Jacques Mesrine/ Dans ma vie je veux rire avec mes potos/ Du soleil, du croco/ Du Lauren, des bonnes gos et du pollen/

Silex
Ayo, new born babies, welcome to the circus/ As you grow up and become conscious/ Let your instincts lead you to you purpose/ Worst comes to worst, worst/ Ups and downs, words hurt/ Words, will free you from the bad clowns/ Believe in what you can accomplish/ Then, t-t-take actions its all that counts/

Depuis mes treize ans, j'appuie sans raison/ Sur la gâchette de mon stylo bille/ Dans ma maison en cachette j'écoutais des cassettes au style hostile/ Gars, Faut que je me sauve par n'importe quel moyen/ Sauf par l'illégal bordel moi j'en ai vu plus d'un/ Faire la bévue alors j'affirme mon refus/ Le rap mon refuge, la rage m'arrache la trachée/ Rangez vos clic clic, ouais je suis un chic type/ Pacifique et pas si vite, ne pas courir après le gent-ar/ Plutôt sourire que frapper le gendarme/ Ma drogue c'est la littérature/ Ouais j'hallucine quand je lis mes ratures/ Je suis le meilleur auteur et j'mets la hauteur/ Malheur aux autres, les concurrents/ Vont nous courir après, cons courants!/

Ebonic Raven
It's the velociraptor, stopping your laughter on this track,when rappin'/ I'm cracking backs and ankles like Kurt Angle slamming bastards/ My reminiscence of essence, infecting intersections/ Expelled your temple from it's sector like the rhyme inspector/ ''Protect ya neck'' like Method, then step into my direction/ For my perfection as an adolescent had you stressing/ I'll jab a dagger in ya clavicle, to have you shattered/ The name's Ebonic and I'm dropping knowledge for my scholars/

Nul besoin de jouer les durs à cuire sur ta couverture de vinyle/ Le tout repose sur la somme et la substance de tes principes/ Et j'insiste sur la technique puis la pratique/ Ainsi le doc manie mieux le beat et le rythme qu'un flic manie le flingue et le fric/ Mine de rien ma plume flanche de temps a autre/ J'attend l'aube blanche et fout le bordel sur le terrain de l'autre/ Arme de destruction massive ou simple arme blanche/ Roule avec NBS, Massive et le mec Mad en blouse blanche/
