Track Name: Mansa Musa
10 outta 10 times penning land mines
How I plan mine snapping like a bear trap-bare facts
She naked truth in the booth-heat like over proof in a glass with vermouth: shoot
This rhyme don't follow protocol
Best duck and cover y'all
Looking for the fallout shelter
Delta, delta mayday, delta
Wave the white flag only thing that could help ya
Rappers are in danger like high blood pressure
Gotta breathe baby don't let this world stress ya
Shrine to ancestors on the bedroom dresser
Fresher than parsley ring the alarm
See, of me there's an army
Beautiful, charming
Sound bombing the storm before the calming
Heads need embalming dead on arrival
They doing it for fame, she do it cause it's primal
Instinct arrival of a new era without the fitted cap
Tighter than a doobie wrap
Fill a verse with content, still have em running back
Navigate exploring that
Cause they wanting more of that
Organic and raw from the 12th sign zodiac
Sharpening the scimitar, securing the perimeter
Big Ben pen game- never do it miniature
All Rights Reserved is following my signature

lead pipe the stereotype, thought i told ya
sister solar flow so polar
yin that yang, cop that slang
long range thinking like arms orangutan
split banana boat tracks like cantaloupe
sledgehammer gallagher smashing the amateur
front line, they rhymes get ate like lunch time
complete im plus nine, they close but no punchline

Track Name: Get Em High-(w/Ozy Reigns & DT)
Sprinkling stahhr dust the shine is a must
crush stress wont let it worry us
cause we some warriors mau mau maroons
oya, ogun every movements in tune
most high guided so suckers be quiet
we didnt start the fire but will finish the riot
maybe they could defeat us- i really wouldnt try it
of course we are the dopest, not just because im biased
trust- bound to make mistakes when you rush
hush- thinking before you speak it is a must
vice and virtue woes thats universal work through inner voice programmed to alert you
there's thieves in the temple coveting instrumentals picture perfect music scape courtesy of illastrate
finesses-2 H's to blessed to be stressed
i guess fools clueless or else they woulda knew this
get em up

Track Name: Sun, Moon & Star (w/Everliven Sound)
Everybody gazing shine so amazing
shooting across the galaxy leaving trails blazing
celestial track lights zodiac map type
keep the blood diamonds my northern lights is blinding
lucy in the sky- wit a golden tigers eye
metaphorical- i guided atreyu to the oracle
i never roam alone, call the heavens my home
im well known- Hollywood drones settin sights on my zone
harriet's torch as she fled to the north
brilliant of course-constellations integral force
when eyes open its aurora borealis
score treks and wars-im always burning like a chalice
morph from white dwarf to nebula-so inter stellular
press me to check messages on tha cellular I'm tellin ya
seriously, im that sirius b- twinkle, twinkle little star- most definitely
2009 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Track Name: Noire
Its late burning jasmine in the gates
Stronger than ever up against these feather weights
They throwing up plates, im throwing up eights
Spit an iller 32 so what you wanna do?
Respect true reflect the clear view dare you to counter that
Forward not a holla back
Take two and swallow that who you throwing dollars at?
Im not for sale like john robinson polishing off another zombie at a rate that’s astonishing
Harnessing chi- set me free like a pardon when, facing the row that’s a place too many martyrs been
Chasing the flow with a glow from the heart again
sankofa to the days we were closer expand poster-child for wild out the holster
my mind spray to the corners and the hallways the 9 to 5ers and the block lockers all day
chorus:
black love black thought black state of mind black light black stars what a way to shine

corrupt government handing out punishments wonder if we pulled the rug from up under it
would it fall like berlin wall smashing with a wrecking ball its the final call
ride or roll out return control alt delete and reboot now im out of the loop as im flying the coop with cats in hot pursuit choke on the dust of this angel yo tengo morenos I lust a head or a bust however I rock got all chambers on lock no more punching clocks astray from the flock im throwing it down like heather b and them glocks cream of the crop hop hip spit glyphs so slick don’t trip loosen reality’s grip potent cultures swarmed by vultures dusk approaches spark up your roaches

Track Name: Food, Clothing & Hip Hop (w/Aleon Craft, Sa-Roc, Ekundayo, Stanza & mikeflo)
Sirius b shine- kings make a beeline
nothin less than fresh, fly beyond the flesh
levitate- black dot green light heavy weight
deep concentration breathe life to nations
feed ancient lips these sacred scripts
breaking grips-no need for chains and whips
aura full of bling, warrior queen like nyahvinghi
chanting til the enemies beneath me
spit sojourner truth wit kushite roots
Haile I salute Rastafari youth
cryptic visual hierogyphic residuals
this subliminal thought from the mineral vault

2004 ALL RIGHT RESERVED
Track Name: Lexilla (w/Marq Spekt, J-Live, Huey P.Capone & Ozy Reigns)
built strong like ptah was in back of it
virgin birth mcees call me immaculate
mother to they style, the bop and profile
they biting like lycans pays to be enlightened
elevate comatose mental states decimate they real estate got em back on the block
base heads like they back on the rock
this that verbal detox goldenseal green tea on the rocks
when it pops fam quick with the god u's
a rebel squad that think different than ya'll dudes
breaking the mold i was told to fold crews
soul control yous, shine like gold do
my lack of patience is blatant that's why im fasting and waiting trance meditation bringing clarity verily
merrily boats capsized with a quote
get lost in translation hot sauce like capsacin

2009 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Track Name: Planes, Trains, Automobiles (w/Cymarshall Law, John Robinson & 4RCE)
no tsa beef, im flanked by sharifs
word to my nav-el, trolley cars and cab-els
ring bells- that's fact, e-ticket fast track
abstract- breeze thru no checking the back pack
bullet train fame tagging my name on dashboards
upgrades at the counter i get what i ask for
first class royal treatment, moor stamps on the passport
Global approach with a spark like roach
sleeper coach to the west coast- embracing our folks
spread love-she approachable, respect non- negotiable
leers and cessnas-even navi on a Vespa
carry on bags when catching red eye connectors
cross the Atlantic first time-a travel virgin
they got my rider requests and cut the checks like a surgeon
I bless the mic with the gods-
Word to siddartha-
mother earth, j.r., Law and lewis parker
2010 ALL RIGHT RESERVED
Track Name: GMF (Great Mother Flow)
Chorus 2X:

I am the great mother- the cosmic womb
Source of life-sonic boom
DNA of the immortal
Stars align- open portals

Never break my spirit- futile to even try
I Learned to love instead of hate that's the reason why
I am on my square in the midst of chaos
Channeling the spirit without a séance
It's my nature fam- mother natures plan
Calling the four corners with a snake in hand
Symbolically- I am the tree
Deep roots many branches for the family
As Kundalini rise, charging the left side
Alternate nostril breathing- let the stress ride
Aura like lavender-calms and soothes you
Build and destroy- born to improve you
really simple ain't it?nuthing new it's ancient
sacred sentences cracking the coded matrix
copal resin over charcoals repelling agents
intoxicating every breath white lotus fragrance

Chorus 2x:

first teacher-light breeder
Bearing fruit- sharing truth
healing taking care of you
Mentally preparing you
the fez is a womb- Tassles umbilical
cord- one heart, one mind, one accord
birthing elohs- as above, below
complement the herus- to the point like zero
see yo- reflection inner moon sun shining
original not plagarized-heaven lies between her thighs
home on the throne-with a king she belong
backbone- ride or live/survival imperative-
in natural order-love and honor Morrocco to California
empress, queen, mother, daughter- all life begins in water
sunflower-lotus bloom/honeysuckle first womb
jade crystal, moonstone-master self move on
copper ankh activate-opening the stargate
charging up the universe-spoke the name of g-d first

Track Name: Chorus Collection (staHHr Verse)
crazy 8's escape dub plates create landscapes
increase the papes and frequencies at which the vinyl rotates
yet dont equate whether your song is really great
wack verses conceal the fate you wither like Mary Kate
take em or leave em believing hooks are the key to success is nonsense impractical just not factual conforming sabbactical think right radical

Track Name: Mountaintop (w/mikeflo & MLK Jr.)
Get out the belly of the whore-Babylon travel on-the wings of immortality
Tap into the ausarian faculty
in it never of it-covered in white linen
Aromatic gum-spinning
Webs like ananzi-words become flesh
Dressed to the nines-outta my mind right into the ether-plane
Releasing the strain of holding on to the flesh/mastering breath-tai chi mighty
Step in the arena-you can feel her even if you never seen her-deep to the root- mulahadra chakra/
clearing like angihotra
khonsu the vulture-moon agriculture
-rescinded 14th amendment status
To the point like cactus
The facts is-The beast use contracts to trap us
Its All in the signature-
It really dont get much simpler
We on the Rise-check temperature
The last shall be first, reversing the integers

2011 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Track Name: Impressive Presentationals (w/Prophetix)
Prophetix directed respect the femcee m-e-m Tennessee a-t-l trinity
Jon Doe is nuts with beats and breaks we all state futuristic landscapes way out black blue opera throat chakra
so what I speak proper and pop dukes is a doctor posture got her deep breathing crowd pleasing
these fruits in season many search for the reason
odds with even indelible marks repeating pimp strut or two seating
shifting plates when sound freaking down beating believing
knowing got me open break the wooden like bokens token female prevail with clientele and I bet not break a nail
this impress official riddim I procreate with vision greats relate to this muy caliente sizzling

Track Name: 16 Bars of Gold
Inherit the merit of 24 karats

ease down the breezeway-please believe me
im more dope than bricks of Peruvian sniff
still hits when It miss got the gab and the gift
intense wit tha spit-taste the passion in it
ascending-fire ball I'm singeing, binging
eating tracks and wax with acid facts
her frame 3 stacks of that- s.o. dopalicious
opposing hoes in queens clothes- movin suspicious
matrix glitches red dresses and all
see I'm above the rim and this is how I ball
entering spots quick fast on smash
push the richter scale way past ten- wheatgrass slim
imma pass with grace, betta fix ya face
never star struck, I'm trying to get these star bucks (whut)
2009 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Track Name: Grind Season RMX (w/Boog Brown & Methuzulah)
She making 2 dollars out of 15 cents
Feed the whole neighborhood with this one pot of grits
Mama gotta gift sorta like the clipse-swift
No foot on the clutch with a stick shift
juggle 3 jobs or more-seeds plus 4
first shift to third shift and never miss a Sunday service
sequester food clothes and shelter-delta
operation lock movin like heltah skeltah
run with the world on my back-a mommy dat
married or single got it bagged like kristopher Kringle
not in the club to mingle- just more heat to bring you
24 hour mix- cook clean nurture in between
volunteer braiding hair- you can call me claudine
giving birth to the youth then, im back in the booth
giving birth to the truth and im working it too
certain to prove mommy grind is a pertinent tool

Track Name: Guinnessez (w/Angelika & 4-Ize)
SHAYTAAN NEVER CAME SO ILL, HE GOT SKILL
MET A BROTHER FROM NEGRIL THAT GAVE MY SPINE CHILLS
ALL THIRTY THREE NERVES CONTROLLIN MY CURVES
COMMON SENSE JUST SWERVED EVERYTIME I GOT SERVED
STRESS, FRUSTRATION, EMPTY RHETORIC
COLD AS WINTER IN CONNETICUT
COMPASSION LACKIN DEFICIT
THOUGHT IT WAS LOVE- LIKE SENT FROM ABOVE
YOU NOT A SOULMATE
WITH WAYS AND ACTIONS OF A PRIMATE
FOOLED BY LOWER SENSES COMIN FAKER THAN EXTENTIONS
PISSED AWAY ALL GOOD INTENTIONS OUTTA HERE SISTER WAS MISSIN
INTUITION-MAYBE IT WAS ME I COULDN'T SEE
HOLDIN ON TO FANTASY, GETTIN BITTEN BY REALITY

CHORUS
WAR WOUNDS, PURPLE HEART, LOVE VETERAN
MORPHINE, PAIN KILLERS, DRUGS AND MEDICINE
ANYTHING JUST TO FORGET THE HURT, INCOMING...
TAKE COVER HIT THE DIRT
ON THE FRONTLINE, THERE'S CASUALITIES IN THE MIND
AND THE POW'S GET LEFT BEHIND
MENTALLY SCARRED FOR LIFE, LOVE IS WAR
AND SOME CHICS ARE JUST TOO HARD TO WIFE

I SHOULD'VE DEADED IT FROM GENESIS
INSTEAD OF HITTIN THEM GUINNESSEZ
NOW I'M FREE FALLIN CURSIN MATCHES, STREET BRAWLIN
HE CEASED CALLIN, NO APPETITE TO FEAST DARLIN
SO DEEP ALL IN, I BET HE NEVER STOPPED BALLIN
(SOME)WOMEN, FORSAKE GOD FOR THE SCENT OF A MAN
SACRIFICE OUR WHOLE LIFE FOR A SLICE, OVERSTAND?
MAYBE IT'S MY LACK OF PIGMENT
LONELINESS IMAGINED FIGMENT
ONLY GOT THE CAR TINTED TO PULL EXTRA CHEESE IN IT
DAMN JODY, COMIN WITH THE OKIE DOKE, HOKIE POKE
STEADY ROCKIN BOATS, GOT ME AIMIN FOR YA THROAT
SNIPER SCOPE, WEREN'T WE SUPPOSED TO ELOPE?
PROPOSED THEN YA FROZE, I DON'T THINK THAT I CAN COPE

CHORUS

CONSTANT FRUSTRATION, STEMMIN FROM A NO WIN SITUATION
RUSHIN LUST AND FORNICATION, ADDING TO THE COMPLICATION
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE, PAIN RUN DEEP WHEN LOVE DESERT YOU
LISTENIN TO WHISPERIN, CHOOSIN CHAOS OVER DISCIPLINE
SIMPLETON, LIFE SHOULD REALLY BE A PIECE OF ENTENNMAN’S
RELATIONSHIPS STRENGTHENING
FLOWER ESSENCE: PENSTEMON
GENTLEMEN, MY FAVORITE SHIT, SO IM NEVER FORSAKEN IT
I PRESEVERE, MAKE IT FIT, SCULPTIN AND RESHAPIN IT
TAKIN SIPS OFF A FIFTH OF IF PASSIONATE
INCENSE, INTENSE CANDLES LIT, SCANDALOUS
EMOTIONAL BANDAGES, WHY WOULD HE ABANDON THIS?
GUESS HE COULDN'T HANDLE IT, THE BOSS IS MAGNANIMOUS

CHORUS

Track Name: Problem Solved (w/ Punchline & Homeboy Sandman)
I am a force to be reckoned with
reckon that's why they dont like me
wont invite me to they parties-too much coke and bacardi
i sip tonics from herbs, fuck what ya heard
flow oh so crisp/connect with all that exists
behind my lips, the road to zion cross the pylon
live from the black dot-no name no face
too expansive to define by race- im everything plus some
through healing been revealing-word to my plus one
universal trust fund-I am the light
I am the wrong, I am the right, I am the struggle and the fight
the moon reflection, sun projection choose my weapon
of choice is voice, vibrations are the foundation I rock
solid as the lock on a chastity belt I'm felt
deep subcutaneous sunning the ignoramouses
not caught up in no fame cuz this game is illusion confusing
if u not ready, aim steady- looking for the Malcolm to complement my Betty
the Rob for my Mabel Williams-amazing children
spring forth from balanced unions won't let the beast consume them
when I was lost I thought to floss was the ultimate
but now I'm on some other shit lookin for the mothership, mothership, mothership
