Track Name: Gold Kimono
[Napoleon Da Legend verse]
I don’t beef with Goats got the chicken and meatloaf
Plyometric and Aikido on a speed boat
Walking El Camino in kimonos and a thick Filipino
That type shit’ll heal ya ego
Vinyls by the kilo, busy signals on the land line
Shorty rocking intentional tan lines
I don’t stand in line, baselines I vandalize
My language wise, fans fantasize
Standing the test of time, masterpiece I craft is genius
Striking while the irons hot, half u cats anemic
Ya momma should’ve slap her fetus, that was needed
Black Negan back to back, I just brought the bat to beat ya
I burnt the fur out her closet I’m for Peta
I’m a early riser, my circle solid like Serena’s
Williams quadricep, jet crash I’m fly to death
Jet lag hey yo I said that I’m nice to death
Christ of Nazareth, make sure you get the cash correct
Laughing down in Calabassas with a bachelorette
I’m at the M.E.T. eating crabs and crepes
Classic french breakfast, watching a world class chef crack an egg
Call me captain Mecca, I’m never caping though
I play a note or two and sprinkle some oregano
Me and Giallo paint a gallery
I mean I told u so, everything I spoke came to reality
Track Name: 2 Train
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
My product heat Scientology, lock and key
Keep ya 2 dollar philosophy for Dollar Tree
Fake deep conversations with some false statements
Going live on Facebook from ya momma's basement
I like action more than theory rather ask Siri
YOU cats scary sounding like a canary
Ditch ya blackberry, tap the secretary
From the back like Halle Berry foul smell, pussy was unsanitary
Bergen, Atlantic used to hop on a Virgin Atlantic
The stewardess no longer a virgin after we landed
Lost my passport I almost panicked
Customs opened my baggage they seen the merch
And now they wanna tax it
Small thing for a king
I love the finer things
Like Bing Bing Bada Bing! it's magic
Don’t need to jump off a cliff to catch an epiphany
Rap in a pill form make em develop a dependency

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
I’m on that type of time
Imhotep inside a rapper’s mind
You peep the news u saw the headlines
I’m telling bedtime stories on the red line
On the train I’m bout get this work
Flatbush, Newkirk, Beverly, Church
Winthrop, Sterling, President, Franklin
Eastern, Grand Army, Bergen, Atlantic

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Undercover cops at rap shows facts tho
While you assholes is talking shit they taking mad notes
Murder plots, I’m in and out like the Burger Spot
Die slow, I’m up 20, I’m a burn the clock
Like Mark price from long range I’m remarkable like
The archetype, I make it really hard not to like
Keep the drama light, I’m bronchitis on the mic
These artists ain’t really much when u minus out the hype
This game is full of insecure handshakes and fake smiles
From bunch of dudes who still ain’t noticed they got fazed out
Like John Basedow, don’t make me put ya case out
Like Pilgrims on the Mayflower looking for a way out
Cats turning Jordan Peele for that recording deal
For me to even budge I need at least 3 quarter mill
That’s sort of a build but the real gets more morbid still
Talk shit all I got is time u gave me more to kill
On Tour still, drinking water mixed chlorofill
Backstage looking like how Sodom and Gamorah feel
That’s why I walk an enormous shield
Black Pope, feel it in ya gut like a lactose meal
Saxophone thrill like "Do, Re, Mi"
I make the dough the dough don’t make me
That Gritty shit no H.D. spent 8 G's in AC
Sweating like 100 degrees with No AC

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
I’m on that type of time
Imhotep inside a rapper’s mind
You peep the news u saw the headlines
I’m telling bedtime stories on the red line
On the train I’m bout get this work
Flatbush, Newkirk, Beverly, Church
Winthrop, Sterling, President, Franklin
Eastern, Grand Army, Bergen, Atlantic
Track Name: Game Plan
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Intelligent savage with baggage on my soul tatted
A moving target hard to kick like a coke habit
William Shatner traveling thru lands beyond
Under Armor gear with Eye Candy on the arm
Routine traffic stops with cops and they guns are drawn
Mind of Syrian civilian kid I’m numb to bombs
I run it like Lebron, hold my weight like Cinnabon
Buttoned up for meetings they buzzing me up the intercom
Descendant of Solomon in Harlem my aura halogen
Tour thru colleges dig up this knowledge like archaeologists
Low tolerance for dummy who refuse to grow
Can never leave ya comfort zone going on cruise control
Boris Kudjo, Boutros Boutros, new clothes and new goals
These new rappers is Glucose
Flew north on Soutwest for that new dough
Then it’s South by Southwest in a Northface and Hublot

[Napoleon Da Legend Hook x2]
You format the universe the way you think
And you blocking ya blessings when u say u can’t
Paint a picture without a spray can
Show and prove execute and don’t share ya game plan

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
A lot of people quit at 98% percent
Stress body aches and rent time wasted making ends
With dead end jobs and dead end friends
These words will hit the mark like a box that Fedex sends
Panda Ex', GMO in the land of the oppress
Eating flesh, emotional men / with PMS
Ya DNA is mess gotta counterattack the agenda
Open ya third eye so the cataract cannot enter
Street griot story teller storm sweller born a go getter
At the corner store copping a stella as the plot develops
World Peace Metta metamorph without the Meta
Used to think life was a bitch my world view switch when I met her
It takes a fine understanding of the nuance
The nooks and crannies, a crook in chess I move my rook uncanny
Takes an elevated outlook to understand me
Some welcome me with open arms
While other countries wanna ban me

[Napoleon Da Legend Hook x2]
You format the universe the way you think
And you blocking ya blessings when u say u can’t
Paint a picture without a spray can
Show and prove execute and don’t share ya game plan
Track Name: Beige Whales
[Napoleon Da Legend]
Minute Maid fans gather round the lemonade stands
Eliminate the spam and the distractions when I make plan
Christian Bale weight it on the fish scale and switch the mail
Catch the package run it back like a Rocket Ishmael
I make the chick yell get wet that fish filet smell
She got us, had sex with my cousin that Michele spell
Section 8 tales, complexion of a Beige Whale
Violate and death is at wake that’s what my name spell
Raise hell like Thanos in the multi verse, hold the work
Sold em merch, my connect rocking a John Travolta shirt
Spoken word controversial like Flex and Peter Rosenberg
Shot you fired flying off my skin like it’s no concern
Rule breaker laws get overturned like David Dennison
I just made America pay attention to the pen again
Full salvo my sentence’ll make a child grow
Chances of winning slimmer than the waist of Gwyneth Paltrow

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
We can choose to do war or we can spread love
Shit is exactly what u thought it was
You can choose live clean or u can do drugs
Shit is exactly what u thought it was
Either you follow protocol or you become the plug
Shit is exactly what u thought it was

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Fela Kuti in a Fila suit I’m still the truth
Fois Gras on my bread man they killed a goose
Cabernet this ain’t Fabregé, doubling the average pay
From Spain to Dublin in a half a day
You the peep the math I play
They praying they can catch my wave
It’s a fact that the vast majority infatuate
Congratulations Po, you made it thru the fray
Relaxing in a whirlpool with two babes to rejuvenate
My mood was gray it took about 5 to recuperate
The deal I got on the table worth about what Bradley Cooper make
Filipino lunches, Peligrino numbers
Got me Gassed up, add the math up, I see more hundreds
Money bag emoji symbols, Moby Dick and Kimbo
Switch my lingo, every single every chick is single
It’s hard to pick a single, I’m Spartacus and Ringo
Intercontinental ride an Uber Lincoln Continental
Can pimp a dominatrix bomb the matrix
It’s time to mate, I’m like a caveman my mind is ancient
Don’t got shit to prove, this is just for confirmation
Me and the goats we all share the common denominator
I make it easy like Suge Knight, DV Khrist
Art of War, how he win the battle never seen him fight?
I keep it light shake ya hand I try to be polite
I can sneeze extinguish ya whole species like a meteorite

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
We can choose to do war or we can spread love
Shit is exactly what u thought it was
You can choose live clean or u can do drugs
Shit is exactly what u thought it was
Either you follow protocol or you become the plug
Shit is exactly what u thought it was
Track Name: Road to Riches
I give it straight like the trajectory of a stray to a bystander
Refuse to walk on all fours I rather die standing
Trying to live to a standard that wasn’t meant for mine
I live my life to the fullest by keeping death in mind
My people lost how much does peace and freedom cost
How do I chase money without losing my soul to an evil source?
My people get mocked and laughed at
Shot and slapped at
Worldstar is a joke gotta get passed that
Bottles in hand spending dollars on brands
Riding on dollar vans and only seen ya daughter through a sonogram
No father since our forefathers
Living with no knowledge of self but we the most stylish
So childish, celebrating being broke and selling dope
Hell is cold the devil welcomes you to sell ya soul
Make ya record blow have u sounding silly yo
Thinking you a goon but you a coon looking clownish in ya video
Six lane highway that leads straight to a jail cell
Police trained well while the drugs hitting ya brain cells
Hoes in the Poconos, coke in our nose and broken hopes it’s a slope, We at the bottom on this totem pole
My soul is sad, bottom of the social ladder
We pros at acting like shit all good life is a prophylactic
You don’t build yourself by hating someone else
We all want the same thing it’s everybody for themselves
I’m tired of fighting against my own common sense is gone
Showing dominance with chrome life turned my heart to stone
Halogen dome, born only to create starving for years, desperation was the only food we ate
No one taught us to be great our role models were pimps
Drug dealers, blood spillers, slug peelers
So fuck feelings, it tough living when you failing
With no road maps or direction in the ocean while you sailing

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
On the road to riches and diamond rings
This the sacrifice we make just to live
X4

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Companies are making money off us
Our moral compass is off
Record companies is making offers like slaves in auctions
They warned us in the past to take precaution
I’m lost already kid I just wanna save my offspring
So I talk it from the heart and share my life with you
Much rather that then fight with you
The right situation will have u doing dumb shit
Got me thinking of my crew in D.C., I used to run with
I had to motivate out and change my path the youth in the street play with guns like a game of laser tag, got a taste of that
Bitterness lingered inside my mouth
Crib to crib, body tired, surfing on another couch
Back spasms from playing ball on cement
Always worked for mine
While some would get it all on the strength now they all convinced
Trying to figure out the magic pill but
How you gonna get the mass to feel you when you lack the real?
And I just spoke cataloguing all my soul in the bars
From the days of analogue tapes when I rolled in the car
Soul of a star not celebrities the ones in the sky
We only show appreciation when one of us dies
Numbers lie, so don’t believe all you hear
It’s politics a lot of tricks
Knowledge without any wisdom’s nonsense
Selfish and divided, self-entitled
They call us entertainers never recognized myself in the title
My brain itself is idle, that’s when the devil enters
How do I put myself first without becoming self centered?
Feel like someone else everytime I hear
Myself get mentioned like there’s something
Over me staring from the next dimention
It’s... puzzling sometimes I think about it
Music’s too precious and I know that I can’t live without it
Let it resonate like bass in section 8
I just pray and leave the negative for yesterday

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
On the road to riches and diamond rings
This the sacrifice we make just to live

Track Name: Kremlin
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Salutations to the savages and scavengers
Learned my ethics from the traffickers
Society treats us like pathogens like Spirit passengers
Trying to patch a broken past like the path of Anakin
Jedi mindstate on a red eye overnight on a wake
Even a small oversight can leave you slain
Looking for my Lois Lane, traveled down the lowest lane
5’6 but I got the strength of a Samoan frame
By now you know the name you seen the picture the poet paints
Pitching this cocaine with a poker face and no shame
Code name Gamo got a chick to clip toenails
My weight broke the scale so many wait and let it go stale
No sales, you get the full price, pull a heist
This year I’m getting that Pulitzer Prize winner hype
Music blogs spin it right, dim the lights
These rappers Vanilla Ice, I’m Attila with a knife
Drinking Miller lite

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
At the Kremlin looking splendid like I’m trying na get elected
My whip electric ten chicks around me looking eccentric
I set the benchmark u talking shit from the bench paul
No guest star I slide like Cholesterol and make ya chest stall
Hack in the system like Draymond green
Got my game on these pages put my name on memes
Drinking chivas playing "rock, paper, scissors"
The pot roast delicious, paparazzi's taking pictures
Media whores surrounding, I’m just a meteor
Trips to Singapore, you never seen a king before
Christian Dior listening to Bjork, simmer the chicken broth
Battling stress, I got a million thoughts
Sicillian cloth, persecute the prophet lift the cross
Piss em off when u smile: that’ll kill em sof ...
Lauryn Hill flip, human with a kill switch
While they popping bottles behind velvet ropes so they can feel rich
Track Name: Burden
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Living broke is like watching a film that's out of focus
They clipped a note right on his door that’s the eviction notice
Down on his luck lost his job feeling kind of stuck
D.U.I. lost his license, he used to ride a truck
Girlfriend and two kids looking at him like
What we gonna eat tonight? baby crying everybody tight
Chain smoking and pacing in front the building
Stressed and feeling like he’s disappointing his children
Fuck it, he bout to rob a store, decision made
Pistol on his waist, wild grimace on face
Automatic door slides open, as he slides in toting
Loud sound, bystander drops his bottle and broke it
Shoots him off the reflex the bullet checked em
Time stopped arm extended black smif n wessun
Half drunk, left him laying in a puddle off blood
God damn, dashing out the store like what the fuck?

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Crazy work ethic, educated man of ethics
Well-respected at work, his smile infectious
Doubled his goal today bout to go home and meditate
To get his head straight spotify streaming Etta James
Loud headphones in the drug store, copped a Guinness
Got all his ducks lined up and feeling optimistic
He hears a woman gasping
Dude with a black jackets toting a canon walks in like assassin
The shock hit him dropped his bottle on the store floor
Cocked the 44 shot em and took off his jaw
Looking at hands bloody he hits the ground without a sound
And see his soul elevating from his crown
Vision out of focus as the colors fade to light
He hears his kids voice and sees the face of his wife
As his heart slowly tapers floating towards the holy sacred
If sleep is the cousin of death that statements overrated
Track Name: Chopped Cheese
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Magnum, my back numb, magma, collapse lung, black guns
Tony Braxton I got her ass sprung
Went platinum then her cash plunged in class drunk, grab crumbs Smack up the alumn' last run, the match done
Blaxson, Jackson, fly jackets, I’m jacking high hats in Tallahassee Fashing, action
Lights, A-alikes, favorite mic, pay a dyke, late flight
Never two days alike, my neighbor's right
Sex, Henny Pepsi, Pimp C, Dizzy Gillepsy
On leather seats mami blessed me
Epilepsy, frenzy down in Bercy, lesbies
Best steez, Rest In Peace, rappers winning espy's
Collect fees extra terres-me, extra next week
Extra cheese kid I’m so extra
Arista, elekra, Sylvia Rhone, silk tone
Flip phone and hit songs heads to put a hit on
Pimp don, stiff arms, Nikki Barnes, big bombs
Vietnam got another job for u "Hey mon"

[Giallo Point scratch Chorus]

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
Fly quotes suicide notes, side show 5-0
God flow I know what I’m worth, that’s a side note
DeBlasio not woke, plot holes, me and god spoke
Nachos, hot stoves cooking up this pot roast
Lobster and toast cops know, Kevin Costner
47 doctors, Aristotle
Any model, Remi bottle, semi nozzle, Eddie bravo
That’s heavy gospel get ready for the debacle
Busy body tipsy at the party, Abu dabi
Ricky Bobby with Mouamar Qaddafi
In the lobby, contracts, hypercondriac contacts
Rest In Peace to Combat, you know qw on that
Dead shot, red dots, Red Fox, rest stops
Prescott, you want a war? Let’s not
Or else die
Next stop, lay over, Daytona, stay sober
Next year the take over, game over

[Giallo Point scratch Chorus]
Track Name: Get Out My Crib
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Already told y’all to leave y’all disrespecting my crib
Coca-Cola on the carpet man this is where I live!
Who them chicks smoking in the bathroom looking like kids?
Underage with some cigs and one of their feet stink
Malachi passed out on the couch wake ya ass up!
It’s Sunday! Go see ya pastor give him ya cash
What the fuck is that written on my basquiat piece?
Got this dude looking Pacquias niece, the balconie’s packed
Party over, should have never left T the keys
Slipping on condoms, knocking down some bottles on my sheets
Who in my fridge picking on some leftover Chinese?
General Tso motherfucker dropped Mumbo sauce on my sneaks
Pills and weed on the coffee table, it’s made of glass
I’m a be late for class gotta turn in this paper to pass
Broke in half family picture frame and the popper stoppa bent
TV on channel 10, I guess that’s how the party ends

[Napoleon Da Legend hook x8]
Party over get the fuck out of my crib
Get the fuck out of my crib

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
What the fuck u doing here still love?
You ain’t got a place to stay so u sleeping in my tub?
Who invited you? Matter fact who empowered you?
Half drunk in a stranger crib would ya father be proud of you?
Oh my bad, you never knew ya father?
That was insensitive my bad I beg ya pardon
Come... let’s have a beer, what brought you here?
She said she broke up with man, wanted to switch her atmosphere
Ok you look like a nice girl but yo yo yo
I ain’t the one to save u girl no no no
You gotta get yourself together cause these dudes
When they see you they see food
And I’m a dog too, but I know how to keep in check
No disrespect but that’s not how you gonna get respect
But check until then finish this plate
Here’s a ten use it to get your ass home it’s getting late
No capes

[Napoleon Da Legend hook x8]
Party over get the fuck out of my crib
Get the fuck out of my crib
