Track Name: Mission Statement 2
No much has changed since part one...
This periods been a dark one everything escalated accelerated and aggravated, climate change deniers, flat earthers, fake gurus
And trained liars remnants of birthers
Keyboard warriors moving their cursors division and racism
Tikki torches erased wisdom biased police enforcement
Were all targeted heavy victims of marketing movie producers frolicking derogatory comments turned apologists
The music industry’s guilty of dumbing us down further
While gatekeepers block our more profound versions
Misusing the word culture to slowly drown its murder
Moral deficit deeper than that of the national budget
Mass incarceration why was Ronald Reagan heralded
For starting a drug war he helped supply?
Break families watching the helpless die selfish
Lies agents doubling as black entertainers, child molesters and rapists
They downpressed and withheld our wages
And failed to properly educate us no longer will we tolerate it
We gotta do it ourselves, eat better, live better, think better
Make better choices and judgement, work with each other better let’s flip this pyramid scheme and myth of the American Dream uphold the responsibility of proliferating and carrying genes
It’s starts today
Track Name: Jiren The Great
Intro Speech
"The finest warrior this planet has to offer
I can sense no limit to his energy
Somewhere on a far away planet
A being exists who is my match
One who can rekindle my passion for battle"

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
You heard about the pain you heard about the grief
You heard about my game I’m a certified beast
Smack a gossiper drinking a lager watch my saga
Continue countering contras like I’m in Nicaragua
Seeing notes like Lady Gaga singing at her loudest
You mocking our culture I’m making our people prouder
Erase the doubters take a bow to Siddartha I’m Power
Incarnated in a man I make a villain cower
Slightly melancholic selling rhymes to make a dollar
Crowds applaud em cause they really know what’s real about him
Project my aura out from Wall Street to project corners
Blasphemous challenge divinity make a god a goner
Grey skin defending justice what a great king
Still training ready for the challenges a day bring
Dearly depart ya daily I’m a target
But whats really scary is that I’m just barely getting started

Napoleon Da Legend [Chorus x2]
This is a state of mind prepared for my fate
Face ya fears erase the fear on ya face Jiren the great
Either you build or destroy I’m a kill and create
Watch the opposition disintegrate Jiren the great
Yo yo yo

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]
This the shit that got Jon Jones banned
No man lands you represent what I can’t stand
True power coming busting ya head with Nuke shower
Rush with the velocity that knocked down the two towers
It’s Jiren the shuriken thrower get some insurance I’m a purist
Y’all zombie got the vaccine that’ll cure it fought Berrus and I can put a galaxy in check
I came to collect your whole morality’s in debt doggie fetch
You an insect ya songs is incest
(Punch sound) thats chin check no argument been best
Swipe u like debit card and I ain’t set the pin yet
Take ya princess get the type of coverage Kim gets
Flick you with my index damage ya body structure
Blood gushing after-party flooded with some Russians
I’m solitary I don’t talk u do the commentary
Can never handle the weapons that PharaohGamo carry

Chorus x2

Outro speech:
"I am the dominator of the universe
Eventually I found there were none left who can face me
I came to know the torment of utter, all-emcompassing
Boredom"
Track Name: Chinese Creatine
Katt Williams [intro]
"Some of us are against the Illuminati
And we are against the Illuminati at our own
Detriment. When people are against the Illuminati
They get punched in the face all the time, the press
Hates em and nobody likes em... End quote"

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
The corruption is blatant
Got us suffocating blood pressure raising
Need doctors to resuscitate ya
We in a hologram polygraphs and dollar scams
Another scapegoat isis over taliban
What’s the difference between pre historic and Modern Man
Did god make us in his image just to follow man?
We spending dollars on the popular brands
It’s propagand... artists selling products to fans
Does god exist? Is it a he or a she
Are you a sheep or a beast?
Does it Matter what you perceive?
Prestige and social status climbing the social ladder
Something bad happens everybody wanna know about it
Low salaries choking on some calories
Elections racially charged
Phones on low battery
Drones surveillance, worshipping the A-list
Putting each other down when our origin is sacred
Marketing is changing our behaviors
Poverty’s contagious it’s Sodom and Gamorrha in the matrix
Smoke and black mirrors trynna stop the cash getters
It’s lame, the music games full of ass kissers
Morally bankrupt You saw me when I came up
Same bluffs now I’m back fucking the game up
Change up nothing but the beats I rock to
Get u some Chinese creatine kid I got u

This the shit that got Jon Jones banned
Ambidextrous I can hit with both hands
I can do what no man can
I learned to survive in No Mans Land

It’s time to reprogram ya whole plan
From the shithole where they steal the gold and coltan
And the petro, along with minerals in the land
Suffer a thousand deaths for dissing the original man
Make u feel the soul in it like an old school jam
I’m the go to player kid my flow Sudan
Wolfenstein eradicate the Ku Klux Klan
Can give two fucks just like Ruk in the Boot Camp
My shit is niche fuck mainstream that shit is sweet
Virtually everything industry says I disagree
Perfect symmetry of beef and conscious
I don’t care about ya followers ya speech is nonsense
They killed all the leaders from Malcom to Fred Hampton
Threw a few of us some money held us for ransom
Changed up the sound a few real left standing
Last hard shit from the East was Dipset anthem
That’s heatmakers and Juel Santana
Live long like the revolutionary black Panthers
Never that flash in the pan rap
I’m pan-African pen massacres send ya ambassadors
I been crafting this 20-20 lens crafter
I been graphic I’m demolishing ya bracket
On some fantasy rap shit, hand em a classic
Random attacks, hand on my cannon I clap shit
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Daddie Notch - Black Privilege 3
Daddie Notch [intro]
Haaaa
Outta di dust
Our people shall rise
And victory shall not be denied

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
Hope obliterated post race liberated
Familiar names in Obituaries in the papers
Corpses cremated strange fruit on trees hanging
Slaves segregate incarcerate 3 phases
Deshumanizing our nature in the legislature
Emancipation was joke just to test our patience
Kaleif browder is dead another martyr bred
Our time on earth is short like Eric Garner’s breath
Violence in our language is trivialized
The music business rewards the uncivilized
Misunderstanding the complexity of my complexion
In the mirror conflicted when seeing my reflection
Is it my Power you afraid of ?
My prowess with the cadence
I can just smile and exude greatness
The world best scientists couldn’t explain it
And everyday we make it thru despite is amazing

Daddie Notch [Chorus x2]
Straight through the struggle and trife we fight
Straight through the pain of life we rise
They wan' take our life
But they can't break our pride

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]
Standing strong after the storm and the winds settle
The pains only boosting up my strength level
Pressing my luck cause being oppressed sucks
Police pressing us the situation messed up
Woman and man up we don’t get rest up
Gotta give the best of myself I gotta step up
Cause the stakes is raised up some wanna erase us
Racist and then again afraid to face us
So I praise everyday I day I wake up
Shaking the game up adrenaline is pumping my veins up
Making my way up we not from the same cut
We gave you a chance you turned around and betrayed us
Changed up the channel just to channel my anger
Still surviving despite being embattled and banged up
Blessed highly favored and prayed up never gave up
Shaped up on the path to be great what!!??

Daddie Notch [Chorus x2]
Straight through the struggle and trife we fight
Straight through the pain of life we rise
They wan' take our life
But they can't break our pride
Track Name: Black Rice
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
On my Kapernick activist bagging it up
While u babbling I’m traveling and stacking em bucks
Gut check from a javelin they patching em up
I’m irrational and passionate when mashing em up
Like Akhenaton tapping on buttons up at the Pentagon
Megadon leader of the black Renaissance
Dropping jewels for the neighborhood Youth
The Last Mohican that the labels weren’t able to fool
I Say the truth I don’t get paid to assume so stay tuned
I don’t blame if you shocked you listen to fake news
Day 1 they were skeptic I got em Day 2
Got em swearing the second of Christ came thru
That’s Jesus ... that ain’t me I'm sipping grey goose
Playing it cool that must be some good K2
Bring the cake thru and let the whole tape play thru
Playing 2K black rice and boulet too
You ain’t living it it’s too late to relate to
This is the raw without the filter that T pain use
Pre-game Booze it’s innate don’t debate fools
Shredded headed to the caymans on a 3 day cruise
Like Sekou Touré In Guinea I get busy
The Chances of winning slim like Heidi Klum skinny
The game is coon city half the shit they do silly
I’ll be good new kicks and that triple goose fit me

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]
Blind to the hate I stay playing collie Buddz
Solo rapper rock alone and kill a posse cut
Now that I’m buzzing think I might need a body double
Was blessed with god given talent and a lot hustle
Fast-twitch muscle when I speak the shit subtle
I don’t cuddle miss I still dodging piss puddles
Shit is lit tho I’m flip mode in Gitmo, Diplo
Should I let that kid flow? "Shit no"
Slick flow Denzel I feel like I can’t fail
Some claim they popping but I swear that I can’t tell
Breath in a chem Trail let my lung sort it out
Allergic to the bull peep the slug my gun coughing out
Get tossed out should’ve put in now you lost out
Going off route now its back to the dog house

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 3]
No competition was forced to battle my own shadow that would foreshadow the fact some rappers more fragile
Carry the torch ride out without a horse saddle
Dodging when they be sending shots I’m of course agile
Stay the course stand firm like Jordan’s statue
You crying for they support they wanna get passed you
I'm just caught up in my capsule never passive
My Sound’ll still be living after this era passes
Like when crack brought terror to the masses
Good and the bad it also brought rappers that were charismatic
Track Name: Half a Mill
Half a Mill [intro]
"Growing up in the projects is like
You trying to find the right road
There's a million roads to choose from
These streets will definitely make you
Or break you, teach you how to be a man
Or clown. One of the other
Easy to get on drugs, easy to sell drugs
It's easy to get into a fight, it's easy to fight
Easy to get killed, it's easy to kill somebody
You know what I'm saying, it's that easy, seriously."

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
Love ain’t part of equation often
This world can leave you abandoned
Like an Albanian Caucasian orphans
Funeral service with a black man playing organ
IRS in ya pockets you gotta pay em often
Straight morphed into a blade brain lazer sharp
Analyzing all the angles and I played the part
We was born amazingly smart study the ancient arts
Toxic energy I block off like H&R
The streets my A&R block after block promotion
Church and Ocean celebrate and pop mimosas
I drop notions for ya third eye to open
And glide over the ocean give fallopians slow convulsion
I make ya mindstate reach Ketosis
Decompose ya whole anatomies and
Have you reach ya peak emotion
They wanna ban my music so I hand to hand my music
I’m addressing all the foul gossip and the rumors
I’m not chance the rapper I’m not trans rapper
Transform and slap ya I’m an advanced form of matter
Humanoid I twist ya joints up like rheumatoid
A lloyd of London with the power of a super droid
A sly cyborg a sci-fi lord
I don’t abide by laws a sense of pride I would die for
I’m darfour times four and it’s a mind war
You was born to be a god why you living blind for

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]
Blessings to the ancestors resting in the infinite
Don’t put a limit on me these bullets indiscriminate
I stare white supremacy in its face and demonstrate
That I cannot integrate something that I originated
Im way beyond what small minds can grasp
Anybody break my projects down I send em my congrats
No weapon made by man can stop me this is prophecy
There’s no game without me no Trag... without Khadaffi
That’s like pistol without a trigga party without no liquor that’s now cypher like Flipmode without a Diggah
That’s like yo fuck that I’m just a scientist
Ahead of my time the lines I spit ain’t even mine yet
A thousand year out of my prime riding a comet
I can see ya great-grand son writing a comment
Ain’t a stage big enough to hold my weight my soul can make waves motivate the whole of the culture to go be great
In this reality we co-create exfoliate
Dumb motherfuckers some of y’all shouldn’t pro-create
All u do’s appropriate I’m a repo
And when I speak truth to power watch the people repost
You coward we pull ya peacoat Time to reload
Bruise ya ego the Eloheem got em emo
I’m a keep spreading the math until all of the masses fell
Minus the mass appeal Rest In Peace Half a Mil
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Nejma Nefertiti - Encrypted Wisdom
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

Show me who’s successful who behind em benefits
Put a mirror to they face notice em get sensitive
Everything you know about rappers I’m the anti-thesis
I’m what happens when you mix the soul with some arithmetics
Made music selfishly mixtapes is infamous
Soon to be litmus test for other lyricists
Broke down the system refusing to be victimized
That’s Signifies I stand by my brothers like I’m sigma phi
Epsilon High echelon spit til my breath gone
Then You can send the contract and now let’s it get it on
Smif-n-Wesson song next level lexicon
Standing next to devils that pentagrams is a hexagon
Like the shape of France I don’t wanna slave for bands
Carved a path and built my temple I don’t need to make a band
Started to read speaking like a educated man
Smuggling contraband through an entertainment brand
I got a greater plan currency is trading hands
Paint a picture on ya wall without having na spray a can
Graffiti rhyme scheme nerfitti mind reader
Holding the down the fort like Hotel Rwanda Don Cheadle
Got em addicted heroin needles on the vinyl
Final call peep my word like it’s on the Bible
Speech is homicidal sub-consciously I travel
Divine geometry that sub-atomically attract you
Deuteronomy the second law mood swings
Like wrecking balls These rappers gassed up on ethanol
Part of me is Escobar nah I don’t connect with y’all
Doing squats my legs are sore taking baths with epson salt

Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Witness a queen speak
Nejma Nefertiti [hook]
Witness a king talk
Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Make it a clean sweep
Nejma Nefertiti [hook]
Get em with the pitch fork
Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
This is encrypted like

X 2

Nejma Nefertiti [verse 2]

Nefertiti Adirondack flow you already know
I’m too futuristic and advanced for ya’ll to catch me though
Where intellectual meets the ghetto I’m flexible
Freedom fighter stance this injustice unacceptable
Not to the right of you
Not to the left of you
On another level, so much more impeccable
Legendary like Napoleon multi dimensional
Revolutionary unforgettable professional
You lacking common sense and consciousness it isn’t sensible
Far beyond the usual volume 10 times the decibels
I am exceptional sexually irrepressible
They couldn’t take my soul when I did 5 up in correctional
I’m too respectable to deal with ya’ll unethicals
They ask me what my secret is I eat my vegetables
Dope fiend rap Donald Goines you susceptible
Smacking on them veins my word form injectable
Commemorative mint condition a real collectible
Going up in herstory undeniably ineffable
I am the Tao of lyricists there’s none identical
Ride the beat like a super shero it’s all intentional
You talking too much shit while grabbin on ya genitals
Homophobe behind doors a bonafide homosexual
Anything you do I do it better on my menstrual
Keep it 100 like a perfect score on a test in school
Not impressed with you annihilate a sesh or two
Trifecta personal Venus grace a perfect pentacle
Across 5 points 6.7 mill authentical
Abundance only is my new mantra plentiful

Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Witness a queen speak
Nejma Nefertiti [hook]
Witness a king talk
Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Make it a clean sweep
Nejma Nefertiti [hook]
Get em with the pitch fork

Track Name: That Time at the Gym
Napoleon Da Legend [verse]

Drinking ginseng tea she rocked pink mink
We hit the gym i had just gave my ex the pink slip
20 set squat barbell heavy set
Spotting her from the back her face cherry red
Felt the burn after 500 side lunges
Visualizing our body for the July summer
Double dip on our dips Felt the pump in my tricep
Her body right like Rosa Acosta
We had the gym to ourselves I knew the manager
We hit the sona she start to put on me like Pamela
Disclaimer adult language bout to ensue
If got kids suggest you tell em to leave the room
We was dripping like a Chinese sweat shop
Look at her breast shorty was stacked like a Brinks truck
Kinky as fuck too Timbuktu
And both single as fuck no need to think this thru
We was sweaty both of us smelling like a zoo
Animal sex the lady was riding my bamboo
Hitting every note with a slowlong heavy stroke
Ripples in her thighs thicker then an Iberico
Loving the slope on her back made her shoulders crack
I’m so cold my tongue put her clit in a cul-da-sack
Post-workout snack put protein in her bag
You can post on Snap let em chat

Napoleon Da Legend [Chorus x2]
Dips pulls ups crunches
Burpees push ups and lunges
We gonna get ya body right
We gonna get ya body tight
Track Name: Days of my Youth 2
Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Days of my Youth 2
Back in the days when I was young
All we knew was sneaking out of school
And acting dumb
Chasing these broads to get the buns
Spit rhymes play ball it was so much fun
Reminiscing on

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

How you rise to your potential in the midst of crime central?
Wanna borrow games? how about the 5 that I lent you?
We gonna run it back minus Malik on the team
He be turning the ball over and his defense is weak
Feeling chic high top sneaks with extra large jeans
After ball we pushing weights I did my set to Mobb Deep
Paul’s a hater had Decepticon and Autobot beef
His game was garbage probably studied tapes from Olden Polynice
Stretch marks between my shoulders and chest
I'm getting bigger mad at myself
When I would miss Rap City with Big Tigga
Most the girls would claim they were virgins like Richard Branson
Rocked the strength shoes and
Worked on my footwork like Barry Sanders
Rushing to grow up would fantasize on hitting clubs up
Most of the decent girls in school were acting stuck up
You know what? all this rejection built up my character
Flew overseas it hit me damn I grew up in America

Napoleon Da Legend [hook x2]

"You ain't got a job Tommy!" Now he's resting in Peace
She gave me a hug and a kiss what an affectionate tease
She was 3 years my senior yet she recognized my genius
Big homie scooped me up his whip had extra large speakers
We would analyze flics like Juice and Menace to Society
Bragging about the chicks he pulled that sucka used to lie
That's his prerogative like Bobby remember Bell Biv?
Selfish for life T was allergic to shell fish
Copped a Bath Ruth and a 64 ounce slurpee
Favorite color was blue I used to hate Bobby Hurley
Nothing personal I was a Terp cops came we was alert
Jessica was teasing me to death she was a flirt
Scotty used to cheat he used to sneak to smoke weed
They sent his ass back to Gabon that's a country overseas
I had the crazy handles used to watch Childress Randolph
And write breakthrough lines like Ernest Byner on the hand off
The Wizards were the Bullets Manute Bol would shoot 3s
My mentor was Ron Williams I was told to do me
Doc's Gym Iverson used to come with Norris Moochie
When you dropping 27 a game you getting groupies
I loved it Naive showing affection out in public
Thought she loved me, that reality check was the roughest
Dreams of playing at the Rucker
Conversations were like "How we rank among the best in the nation?"
Slam Magazine Hip-Hop quotables in the Source
Rocking Illmatic in a Walkman portable of course
Used to watch Beavis and Butthead what a horrible show
How I grew to be a man only the oracle knows it goes...

Napoleon Da Legend [hook]
Ahmad [hook]
Back in the days when I was young I'm not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again
Track Name: African Drums 3
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

Before Palpatine colonized the continent
Raped and try to mentally sodomized our dominance
Steal from the land and kill children women and man
Imposed religion turned our homes to concentration camps
Now it’s more weapons tribal factions
Violent practices rivals wanna get it cracking
Before slavery made us distant cousins
And Got us dissing our brothers like in living color
Dirty dozens following trends like a herd of mouton
Judge Dred serving us justice is the repercussion
Facts tho they want our black gold to stack dough
They stole our Afros injections in there butt to make they ass grow
Changed our borders turn around take our resources
Then come back with some fake ass peace offering
Camouflaged in the mangroves this is a guerrilla war
Eating off the land where the plants grow

Napoleon Da Legend [hook]

This the rhythm of the African Drums
Red black and green flag waiving at sun
In the cities the villages jungles and the slum
No matter where you at still rep where you from
It goes
Fela Kuti, Patrice Lumumba, Nelson Mandela
Papa Wemba, Zao, Salif Keita, Angelique Kidjo, Digbeu
Gohou, Alpha Blondie, Tyken Jah Fakoli
Hannibal Barca, Chinua Achebe, Biko
Zulu And Tutu, Marcus Garvey
Thomas Sankara, Toussaint, Marley

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]

Cassava leaves in Brazzaville where we shop and chill
In Ghana we build where else u get that kind of feel?
Plus the melanin is excellent color tones
Is subtle poems ya mothers cooking got u running home
Rhythmatic posture with cinematic shakras
Go to Ethiopia the traffic there’ll shock ya
Drum beats inventors of the baseline runs deep
Make you see the unseen power from the sun beams beaming
With knowledge like the Dogon tribe
Same mystique energy that makes Gohan fly
Masai Warriors and Haile Selassie carry the god seed
And breaking out of the cycle we living now free free free
Botswana
Small time little league playa pop warna
African investments Akon electric
WiFi connections with a beautiful complexion

Napoleon Da Legend [hook]

This the rhythm of the African Drums
Red black and green flag waiving at sun
In the cities the villages jungles and the slum
No matter where you at still rep where you from
It goes
Fela Kuti, Patrice Lumumba, Nelson Mandela
Papa Wemba, Zao, Salif Keita, Angelique Kidjo, Digbeu
Gohou, Alpha Blondie, Tyken Jah Fakoli
Hannibal Barca, Chinua Achebe, Biko
Zulu And Tutu, Marcus Garvey
Thomas Sankara, Toussaint, Marley
Track Name: Black Excellence
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

Hey yo Netflix cut Monique a check give her what she worth
Let her earn so we get it when we get our turn
Race and gender always part of the agenda
Imagine if we all came together like Avengers
From the fringes to pop-culture mainstream
Even though my name seems politically incorrect I’m still threat
Like Alcinder at the rim staring at the winter
Like Kaepernick on his knee like an Aborigi....
Just a tad richer and a tad is relative
Reminisce my days past had spat with relatives
Sprinkle some western education mixed with melanin
Tell a friend to tell my friend my opps took an "L" again
Duke Ellington smooth not what they tell you at school
If you don’t research I can tell you a fool
Buying more shit so you fit more they slept on me so I snuck through while they snored this what I'm built for
Killgore slash king without the decor
Non shaded untainted my fabric my raw
When I got back from Comores? I was lost and confused
A young adult still with something to prove
Had to shake it up and move
That’s the best thing I ever did
Caught ya attention like a chick with a big set of tits
Getting paid for conversation that’s my type of life
I had to try quench my insatiable appetite
Once In a blue moon Cheese puffs and blue moons
In my boom boom room we hit it off boom boom
Whats ya definition of a coon?
Let’s set the rules so we can kick em all out and make room
Black Excellence

Keni Burke [Chorus]

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]

Black excellence what does that mean?
Being black excellent with an immaculate team?
Being black and relevant thats an industry term
Having melanin? and hitting the epitome curve?
Is it uplifting or marketing? Am I drifting?
Is it pitch to make money and another gimmick ?
To fool blacks and other into buying a product?
Is it for profit? and is there something wrong profit?
Is a benchmark? For all to strive to reach for?
Is it detour? An insecurity hiding a deep flaw?
Is it really the best? Who selects em?
People in power? Making money off of our affection?
Black excellence I like that term
Cause why not? Try to be best in all your work
You push me i push you pull me I pull you
Cause I don’t see any other way we gonna pull thru
This terrain complex full of pain and bomb threat
Frame of mind of a young bull mix with a calm vet
If it’s about progress then I’m on deck
You can miss me with all the rest you on the wrong thread
And If you ain’t about the people u a non-threat
Cause without the action black excellence is just a concept
We got the rock now lets run the play
Black excellence minus the black on black gun-play
And that’s on any given Sunday we done prayed
We gonna raise the bar
Born from the particles that make stars

Nina Simone [speech]
"My job is to somehow persuade them
To get more aware of themselves and where they came
From and what they are into and what's already there
And to bring it out. This is what compels me to compel them
And I will do it by whatever means necessary..."

Keni Burke [hook]
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Jise One - La Pluie
Jise One [verse 1]

Brainstorm crash the weather advisory
The mind freeze in the midst of a heatwave, the step sway blindly
But I could smell the decay, the "L" accumulate, but still on track smashing the relay race
Through all seasons, for all reasons
An acquired taste in treason break mirrors like promises
Ride in the coaster, keep ya feet in
I'm lo key, OG'd up...leaving the seat up!
Put it together, take it apart!
May as well signed a pre-nup
Love and hate are one in the same
With a grain of salt, pain will assault
Lt ya, so I dead it, look at the outline, that's fresh chalk
The eyes clear, but I'm edgy like the life of a turbulent storm, in exuberant form while the sky looks torn
Born royalty, adorned prophecy, enslaved in poverty, nail me to the cross and mock me, you can't stop Me!

That's good yo
Napoleon Da Legend: Good looking
Napoleon Da Legend [hook x2]

Don't mean to rain on your parade
Take a swig of this elixir sure to take away your pain
Wash it all down, ya lenses seem tainted
In a form of a dream woke up and then create it

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]

Yo Peeping the carcass’s that darkness left
Architect I parallel parked the car then I left
The gods told y’all to guard ya neck you face ya worst fear
U gonna third eye, second nose and third ear
Fourth leg and fifth arm drank a fifth of Tiger Bone
Gambled with life I just couldn’t leave the dice alone
Mutant powers in effect without the side effect
It’s now or nev... I live my life like there’s an hour left
With a legacy’s to overpower death remember when I ate cereal mixed with milk from a cows breast
No longer Kelogg, Napoleonic tell-all
Biographic sledge hammer that’ll knock ya head off
See it rolling down ya shoulder blade
That’s what’s you get for culture rape
Now ya inner organs turn to vulture bait
Formulate a plan to save mankind
How many times I’ve been told I’m out my damn mind
Anti-establishment I’m not the one to stand-by
I’m short but me coming up short is a damn lie
Spit quotes more famous than Pinky’s tan line
Pull up to ya block like a Mickey Ds franchise
Expand out I seen ya play ya man out
Turned ya back on your people now tell me how it panned out
Never went the spam route my regular can stand out
I’m just another unwelcomed guest in Uncle Sam's house

Napoleon Da Legend [hook x2]

Don't mean to rain on your parade
Take a swig of this elixir sure to take away your pain
Wash it all down, ya lenses seem tainted
In a form of a dream woke up and then create it
Track Name: Absence Felt
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

I'm spirit minded career rhymer
Bad experience catastrophes appear minor
I'm analogue peep the catalogue
Never hide an behind avatar the accolades
I get cover my battle scars
"we survivors man'
I'm avant-guard universal math of god
I don't appeal to masses but rep the masses hard
Racketeer smuggled bars in ratchet atmosphere
Grab a beer we took an oath not to discuss whatever happens there
"that's sacred"
Giving the vibe away it's only my choice
U can tell I speak my truth from the tone of my voice
Camouflage, samurai, sun of Ra, enterprise
Analyze, my aura shine so bright can make rock star camera shy

Napoleon Da Legend [speech]

I just did what I felt inside of my heart man
They tried to steer me left they tried to steer me right
And I tried dibbling and dabbling in certain things but
It always came back to this man
This is my truth right here man
This is what wakes me up in the morning
This is what keeps me going this is
The fuel that’s inside of my engine right
There u know what I’m saying
So I gotta stay true to it every single day word up

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]

Machismo overload soul controller flow
That's the Holy Ghost that's in me drunk off the power
But I'm sober tho
Our passion ain't compatible
Compassion is comparable to
Passages and parables that the Bible tried to pass to you
"Seek and you will find"
Not a religious thing I'm just a king I'm just keen on certain things certain kinks in the ways that a person thinks
Certain imperfections are a blessing his or her perception
Can effect the way u step in stay sharper than curry Stephen
"Stay sharp with it"
Opportunity knocking this is for youth at the bottom
Carry the truth like a prophet
"We live and learn"
I’m super human colossus that’s proven knowledge
"That's fact'
Smack the serpent pick the fruit from the garden I’m gone
Track Name: Exhibit Z
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]

I dream of us being free
Anybody in the way can just suck TNT
A diamond in the rough like it was mixed down from D&D
From DC was back and forth like Run-DMC
Still tons for me see was told wise men travel
Went hard like the mentality when linesmen tackle
Gamble like it’s a crap shoot life’ll send shots at you
Penetrated thru my flesh like bombshell sharpnel
Non religious sitting in a chapel looking at the ceiling like
Something just ain’t feeling right
Ever since the civil rights our people got soft complacent this entertainment got em thinking it’s only way for us to make it
We wanna be the next Diddy, not the next Fred
Not the next Baldwin, Malcom X dead
Martin assassinated, our architects bled
Who’s the next Nina Simone? X-clan and Public En...
Cause we’ll die for waiting for demoCRATS and RepubliCans
Do the knowledge stead of listeNING to ya bombaclot friends
Cause History repeats that slavery can come again
Matter of fact it never left got us eating crumbs again
That’s the plan I’m eating plantain Johannesburg
Keeping in line with the magnetic fields of planet earth

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]

This candidate is Manchurian
Travel thru time like a samurai Shuriken
This is alkaline for ya body let’s make it pure again
African blood I’m not pilgrim or a Puritan
My creed is durable like Aztec structures
Inner peace means move passed past tense ruckus
Move passed the crabs in the bucket
I’m act like Just Blaze is in the room
Hitting the pads and the buttons
Move past the rats and the gluttons action over discussion
No longer trapped in Babylon’s dungeon
I’m a break a shackles off can care less about stat reports
Mapping out my course everything else is just afterthought
This a master course you can go tell Oprah bout it
Funny throughout the years was quantum leaping over doubters
The droughts over I got it from here
Peace to the fallen soldiers
The soul of Pac is roaming thru the atmosphere
Third world nothing but survivors here
We were chosen to inherit the earth
We the bottom tier
I’m here volunteer
Track Name: Black Privilege 2
[Napoleon Da Legend verse]

The biggest lie the devil told was that he didn't exist
That we accepted a second class status and didn't resist
That white privilege was something made up like science fiction
That American is wasn't built on the back of a violent system
But our gut told us different see the color of this body
Made this lady wanna cross the street instead of walk by me
Or cops stopping me next to the subway station
Claiming I fit the description of a crime investigation when they
They see my name on a resume then it's decimated
What's up my man what's the reason for the hesitation
Explain this Why my accolades look less amazing ?
Don't want your sympathy just fees and reparations see
When we say white privilege first they think excuses
Cause a few of us made it so the rest of us are useless
But some others have it hard to We can have all of the same things
But it feels we have to work twice as hard to
We ain't scared to work hard even tho we didn't start off
With a million dollars that was in Donald Trumps cards
Same song cause what doesn't kill us it makes us strong
Felt the pain repeatedly we no longer afraid of harm
We learned to be more crafty talk a little slicker
Jump a little higher and think a little quicker
Run a little faster sleep a little less
Studied a bit more and learned better to manage stress
And it's all a bit ironic like Alanis morrisette
Got us all looking up to western ideals for respect
Singling out success like Morris chestnut on a set
Straight Pimping all of our talent then collecting all the checks
Privilege is a right a special edge or an advantage
Fuck it we got better when the system left us abandoned
Black Privilege cause the upper class had its turn
White is what is given and black it's what's earned
Haves and the have nots u won't give us our share
So we take it updated and we coming up the stairs
Black Privilege

[Charlamagne Tha God]

Underground rappers are broke (laughter) you ain't got no money, you ain't got no job

[Napoleon Da Legend]

Damn Charlamagne right off the gate you have to be disrespectful though

[Charlamagne That God]

You a very underrated lyricist. People watching this interview right now like who the hell is this guy

[Napoleon Da Legend]

I'm glad you said that cause we all need an introduction. I'm a tell yall a story about how it all lead up to this

[Napoleon Da Legend verse]

Wrote black Privilege for steal This Mixtape too
Tapped Mad Squablz for it the young homie came thru
Shot the video and dropped it music box copped it
Dropped some jewels for those who operate with flawed logic
Then the homie told me Charlamagne was dropping a book
It's gonna give the concept legs that's a quality look
I had some shirts made already I could drop em a few
I waited in a front of the station 3 hours for duke
Was cold as fuck ignored envy as he walked up
Angela came an hour later word she was dolled up
His boys wax was posting up as he stepped out his car
"Peace Charlamagne I got something for you and ya squad"
He paused "I meant a gift beloved I came in peace
I got a song called black privilege and gave him a T"
He said "Dope! I wrote a book that had the same title"
"Congratulations! Spread the gospel like the saints in the Bible"
He gave me dap and said "respect" then he dashed upstairs
And literally two minutes later he was live on air
I understand you a successful man so I kept it moving
Ideas is worth nothing with no proper execution
Next day seen sway the same way gave him a hoodie
First reaction I'm a wear this today it's all goodie
Posted the video sales went up
Around the time taxstone went to jail that was bugged
But where's the black privilege when you be dissing on ya guest
On ya hoodie underlined with a sentence on ya chest
And see you good at what you do and that's obvious fact
People share more interviews that get the audience mad
Fickle when u lose em hard to get ya audience back
Bringing Farrakhan don't be that Pharaoh conning ya pack
Ya Black Privilege is burned when corporations help you earn
I see ya work in Carolina to give back in return
Talking about gangsta rapper and their image in rap
But you talking and shining light on mostly rappers that trap
Or claim it I know ya struggles with Wendy and other stations
The success and the scrutiny coming from publications
I salute you love you as a brother even as stranger
It always good to see black man who made it
Wanna see you reaching higher don't resent those who ya voice represents we still holding ya feet to the fire
Black Privilege

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
Came from the bottom straight to the top my name Po what you know about me?
From the bottom straight to the top name Po what you know about me?
From the bottom straight to the top name Po what you know about me?

[Napoleon Da Legend verse]
Black Privilege black black privilege
That's the premise if you black then u primitive
That's the main stream I don't play the same stream
This ain't fast food I don't sell fake dreams
I spit it different with the words yea
I give my own definition to the words yea
I put my vision in these words and disturb
Then I Destroy the system with my word yea
They call me Po never riding coat tails
No crimes no coke sales no gunshots no jail
No co-signs from a Nobel prize winner
If u building then I side with cha yea
Climb with cha break bread drink wine with cha
It's not about the bank account kid my mind richer
If you a snake spend no time with cha
Never blind with cha never stand in line with cha
Stand tall I can tell you got some pride witcha
White privileges is what's given from society
Cops Letting go after you failed ya sobriety
Good jobs good schools u get the first dibs
Ya whole profile on paper looking perfect
Black Privileges what u did to make yourself better
Gave yourself an edge in life being a go getter
Never quitting when the odds go against you
Working on ya talent to be sharper than a ginsu
Slice the competition cause u better now u get fetta now
It's on another level now
Create my own Privilege I'm different
Everything I say sound different
Everything I wear look different
I'm different spit to beat that I kill for a living
Black Privilege black black privilege
Black privilege that's my Privilege

[Napoleon Da Legend Chorus]
Came from the bottom straight to the top my name Po
What you know about me?
From the bottom straight to the top name Po
What you know about me?
