Track Name: Dear Future produced by Lmntal
Dear Future wherever you are,
Hope you strong, have heart and you reach for the stars
Dear Future wherever you be,
I’m a part of you and you a part of me,

Not sure when this message will reach you,
You might hear it soon, but it might not seep through,
Might go through them tussles and them ups and down,
Know it’s for your best, even if it don’t seem like now,
Put a lot of thought into when and wence you came,
Saw some single and some playing young love games,
Took a turn for the worse then they split due to drama,
Wanted more for you, no baby dad or baby mama,
Two together do it for you and then over again,
Sacrifice, just to give you the chance to win,
And some humility, top to the bottom is we,
Never k now where its end or where the road leads,
Just learn about who is you and have that pride,
Not too much but enough to get through this ride,
It’s filled with many hills, valleys, and pit stops,
But if you put in the work you cant make it to the top,


Cherish that blood that runs all through your veins’,
From holy men, women, teachers, on up to queens,
Africa to Japan and back around again,
Edo to Egypt never forget where you came,
And look ahead to where you going, don’t dwell in the past,
Every season, you can live to be first or last,
Walk through them open doors, try to open some more,
Use honey over salt, fight for peace not war,
Surround yourself with the people that you strive to be,
Don’t forget to give back, remember that save me,
So that save you and in turn stake your claim,
If they don’t let you in, then create your lane,
Trust in your own mind, have faith yourself,
If you get it then that's cool, but don't be chasing that wealth,
Unless you know what it is, more than jobs or tools,
More than shiny things, cause you are my brightest jewel…
Track Name: Land of the Living produced by Wardrumz
Land of the Living

Some people say that you irrelevant,
But we know the truth and keep on spreading it,
Get up in the booth and spread around the globe,
In the Philippines they battle for something that's more than gold,
You can see it in they eyes, no longer feeling alone,
Breaking all the thorns, like a rose out the concrete,
In Africa, the youth moving mountains to a beat,
Its rap politics and the parents still don't understand,
Trying to use you to get votes, but not to help people advance,
Just like the suits in the suites, or these vipers trying to rip,
The very fabric of your essence, but never will in my presence,
I raise an army through a battle cry, mic in hand ready to die
Whether lock behinds some bars or spitting it through a wire,
What’s understood is through the silence, got to read between the lines,
This is not for everyone, no matter how much you rewind,
If you get it then you got it, then you seek and then you find,
We paint this picture for the few, if you was looking for a sign…

Now you could never write a rhyme, never make a beat
Never do a backspin, never scratch ad repeat,
But you can walk this, talk this, live this, breath this,
Die for this, this is my culture not a myth
Now you could never write a rhyme, never make a beat
Never do a backspin, never scratch and repeat,
But you can walk this, talk this, live this, breath this,
Die for this, this is my culture not a myth
Track Name: So Much produced by Rey Resurreccion
I put my soul to this microphone,
Since a youngin used to write the poems,
Heard a curl and kept micheal on,
My uncle nate said you got something to say,
Did that first demo, put these jewels to a tape,
ADats to cake, had crawled before i walked,
Me and Rip in the basement, then we started to spark,
Mixtapes on pavement, posters on the light polls,
Corkscrew, Nero, himalaya crew,
Millienium, to Metrop, Shyne before he got pop,
Rock top of the flats, put Bottom Line on the map,
Rhythm Room, ladies first, whoo kid, monte rok,
Nate dogg, Bizzy Bone in Lorain wit Flip,
Gave Del the cd, the Heiro Halloween,
Blacked out to Black Rob, freestyles wit Freeze,
Opened up for the Gza with my path in sight..
Then met vElo, Sundance, Hip Hop 4 life...

Never knew which way I would travel this road
Give thanks to the people, who filled my bowl,
To the friends and support, and some family too,
From the bottom of my heart, got love for you,
Shouts out to the ones who looked out for me,
Stirred the pot for this P Rhyme recipe,
Just a work in progress, know I caused some stress,
But life is a test; know I gave my best,
Only because a lot of folks looked out for P,
Miss Hodge 2nd grade saw Fred in me,
Miss Jordan 4th grade, taught me how to sing,
Set a good foundation, taught me we were kings,
With skin like me in elementary,
Lil boy from the hood be all you can be,
Not quite a beastie, but fight for your rights,
Nat Turner, John Brown, burning candlelights,
Track Name: F. G. P. featuring Rey Resurreccion produced by Squareweezy (of the Bangerz)
I don’t shoot for the stars, bring the stars down,
Soul sadistic, Rhyme so super stylistic,
From Haight to Haraguku,
Blaze a booth in suit, got juice but still smooth,
Yeah we know what you do that but that’s so passé,
Grill Mcs by the bay, serve they girls rosse,
Up bflo slanging 45s with Billy Drease,
Flavor that you savor, just us, no piece,
3 sections for the staff, no room for naysayers,
I'm a grown ass man, no time to be a player,
No need for them deals, I just keep on writing,
More like the DMV, the way we hand out license,
My art of Hip Hop more like a Bison,
No Kool aid in my heart so I keep on fighting,
Rappers is metal gear, but we more like lightning,
Stay original, while you dudes stay frighten,
Track Name: Half Past Ten featuring Vic Freeze and Crazy T produced by Madd Caesar
Half past ten, the beginning of yo end,
Half past ten, the beginning of yo end,
Half past ten, the beginning of yo end,
Half past then the beginning of yo end,

Half past ten, the beginning of yo end,
Half past ten, the beginning of yo end,
Hear the whistle in the wind, the beginning of yo end,
Half past then, the beginning of yo end,

Revolution of a revelation, final call, extermination,
Know not what you do, so we gon save you from you,
Round’em up, take they names, take they photos, take they chains,
And any remnant of whom they are, then shuffle them in train cars,

Feel like history repeating, over stand whom you beating,
Sing about the pseudo weekend, young girls catching beatings,
Consequence to mockery, fables just hypocrisy,
More like common robberies, plotting for your lottery,

Picking stones, killing clones, bloody bones, wrap in rye,
Lie awake as you die, alchemy will make you fry,
And crumble in a pile of dust, in response to your lust,
Disregard for the truth, and your stance without the sub,

You can thug in afterlife; pop bottles with demons,
Believe in freedom of speech, but you spit, not what being,
Of free will or free thought, just spreading poison you wrought,
Like a slave that’s been a broken, or chasing rings like Tolken,
Track Name: The Cliff featuring Moto produced by King Most
The Cliff

Take a deep breath,
Imagine you go under the sea,
Close your eyes, before you jump off the cliff,
Take a moment before you really want to do this
With me…

Take time, man check your life,
Kiss ya kids, man love wife,
If you got a best friend, hit the strip tonight,
If you got a love one, maybe candlelight,
Maybe get the fight, on the p-p-v,
Take a moment for peeps, a-s-a-p,
Never know when its time to go,
Right now, gotta make the most,
Unplug the phone, spend time at home,
Call up your bro, hang out wit your sis,
If you burned the bridge, best time is now,
Got make amends, don’t make the end,
Just a new beginning, the bond is still strong,
No matter the wrong, put the past behind,
Open up your mind, let your heart follow,
Pride swallow, just clean the slate,
Let love a wash it away…

Take a deep breath,
Imagine you go under the sea,
Close your eyes, before you jump off the cliff,
Take a moment before you really want to do this
With me…

Go head, just pump your breaks
Today your day, time for some vaca…
Or some personal, interrupt that flow,
Put a stop on routine, do it for home team,
For sanity, quality over quantity,
Rat race, Forget why we there in the first place,
Don’t skip birthdays, Make it point to be there,
Spending time, can mean more than dollars,
Or more tennis shoes, or a new xbox,
Kids need guidance, or straight to the block,
Or straight to a gang, or straight to a cell,
But if you grab them now, they might just excel,
From a F to A, from the lineup to the Honor roll,
That push down the right road, starts at home…
Track Name: Moving on Up produced by Deedot
Move on Up (produced by Pro Trigga)

See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,
See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,

Speak to ya soul, not just on Sunday, rock with moms on Monday,
Saturday Sabbath for some, speed through emcees I’m Aundale,
Rumba on you fools like la India smoking stogies,
You phonies talking birds, when ya story full of bogeys,
Don’t know the beat by deedot, sting like persecution,
Rhyme, 100 bullets untraceable, more like retribution,
Super sonic soundscapes, like my mic got 4 wheels,
Drive a rhythm like Monte Ellis, beef dogs you relish,
Wordplay, the words spray, breaks it down, phonemics,
You connecting bigger chunks, chants sound phono drunk,
Sorta stunt but its just nature, efficient in my element,
Seeps on its own, and got a radar for you clones,
Paradox is paradise in what we live, what we write,
Chords and graffiti lights, on the roof just for the hype,
Using sprite, the atmosphere over a thunderstorm,
Rendered in the 3D, Terrabyte to usb…


See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,
See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,











See you see it as a break, we just call it how we see it,
Seeing over what you being, overseer over seasoned,
Then watered back down, let them see not just for seeing,
But thinking through the bpm, seating swiftly then repeating,
To counteract the treason, Yes, you tricking and you treating,
Treatment not the trinity, can’t be Neo just for weekends,
You weaklings must be tweaking, no kings of men,
Just page, replacing lost time for lost wage
Not a shamen or a sage, I knew a few who cut the grade,
And showed up unprepared, try to fake it through the phase,
Forgot the placement pacing for profits,
Replacing racing through sockets, then see the rage
And seeing only windows, which would sow a seed in the grave,
The sowing seen only the days and now the wicked run in waves,
And all the animosity will never bring prosperity,
That why we let it ring, a hit the bells and let them sing…

See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,
See we moving, moving, moving on up,
And we moving, moving, moving on up,
And ya got to, got to, got to, move it on up,
Now its now its time, time to move you on up,
