Track Name: Game Up
Hey yo dinner is served time to eat Po
Sting em with the venom and crack em in they ego
Moves I never telegraph hook me to a polygraph
That’s a green light for every single paragraph
I tend to grab attention like Teddy Pendergrass
Been killing it and that’s been a fact
I been a dad without a biological seed
Shining despite the obstacles from diabolical breeds
I’m Godspeed lock me in don’t box me in
My toxic pen increase the flow of oxygen
inside ya cells and molecules cause these slots is slim
To Pac’s chagrin he died and y’all dropped the clip
Rasta grit apocalypse more knots to grip
This ain’t Medina you can steal this we won’t chop ya wrist
Middle of Medina spittin growing crops from bricks
My mindstate is money making when I cross the bridge
Corny artists disrespecting they brain
Calling themselves recording artist
like it’s one of the same "no it’s not"
That’s artificial Botox chip of the old box
Knock the chip off of ya shoulder Mr. Robot slash
Same emotion when ya phone got snatched
Wave riding cruising on they lil boat got gassed
This is counter culture, put against over the counter culture
Flatbush and nostrand corners eastern and Saratoga
A pack of Funyuns with a peach flavor Arizona
I mix it with a little vodka and it got me zoning
This ain’t fluff we ain’t cut from the same stuff
Let a 3 fly at the buzzer chump, games up!
u working on ya fantasy bracket I’m changing tax brackets
Staying away from the Jake snakes and backstabbers
This mathematics back to when the fact mattered
Throw my body out the window hear the glass scattered
Track Name: Rap Pays
Drinking cocktail Molotov’s with some Russian oligarchs
Rushing thru Scotland Yard without even a bodyguard
I got the stripes and body scars to prove it
The target shooter f I get caught Im a do my time like Martha Stewart
Robert Mueller investigate then pop medullas
There’s nothing to it take advantage like an opportunists
Already been thru been done it bit the bullet
Cold barrel of the gun on my head but he didn’t pull it
I’m still alive to tell it package it I rather sell it
Same word can have different meaning depends on how u spell it
Example: take rain, that’s rule or precipitation
Get what u give that’s the rule of reciprocation
Money is meaningless the value is in information
Are we real or are we living in a simulation
Accept no imitation keep em honest
hold em accountable for breaking promise
like the Trump administration

Chorus x 2
Nowadays cause rap pays
You got a million rappers and a thousand DJs
All wanna talk about how much they flip
Runnin off at the mouth so much ya tongue was kicks
(but...)

What democracy you talking bout ?
When we see something that’s ill in this society we call it out
Respect my focus I can spazz in a seconds notice
Beat jacker fuck around and get ya record stolen
Africa pendulum necklace and now my neck is golden
Everything I touch I make it look so epic don’t it
Glitches virus’s hackers photographers
Novelist artist masters admire this
Hardcore environments a product of em
Example: the whole industry’s in shambles I’m a start to govern
U seen a demi God becoming a god
They love me locally, plus I’m doing numbers abroad
Clean sweep trifecta battle my reflection
Nobody in this Millenium Been gifted with this type of blessing
Live and die a legend, fulfilling prophecy
I was birthed with mutant powers I’m a pimp em properly
Track Name: Adam and Eve
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
I got my gift challenging my curse u out of luck
What’s the diameter of earth I don’t give a fuck!
The pharaoh, Iron sheik blessed mind and physique
Mahershala Ali inside of shorty balls deep
Still bump Mobb Deep I got em kissing gods knees
Ménage three, all consensual never pull a Cosby
From the slave boats but not by choice keep ya mind moist
Experiencing blind joy growing up a foul boy
City where the righteous starve licans spar
Titans fall show y’all how Pisces ball
Twice evolve, came up out the woodwork
With soul like a hood church
Four mixtapes? That’s some good work
Pitch black jacket with a fly actress on IMAX
Don’t get sidetracked, here comes the climax
Another freebie what I do daily
And That’s cool but hit me back as soon as u can pay me
Gamo

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
This ain’t fake deep, I’m waist deep inside maze see
Some rather stay sleep me I never waste speech
Cause we in dire time of false messiahs for minds eye
Quasi- philosophies from false gods
This ain’t a diss to Nas don’t misconstrue it
Rather for the corporate vultures who would pimp the music
On an exodus, the garden of eden we exited
Rest In Peace Bourdain, it’s hard to be perfectionist
Melanin tone light, I can see in low light
Been thru hell never sell ya fairy tales Snow White
Po-lice hunting us, bullet wounds no life
Being brokes like being wet and naked on a cold night
Death can be oversight moms grieve
Other side is palm trees with yatch parties
Fell the need to escape and play is safe the devil waits at the gate with the leather face, trust the process this is yellow cake
Track Name: Conversations with Doubt (Devil)
[Devil]
You never gonna make it Po! Throw the towel
This industry don’t care you got no power
They kids don’t wanna hear bars you gotta make em jump
They wanna hear about drug use cars and guns
100 stacks in ya grill that don money rap
They don’t want none of these jewels and a ton of facts
Create an image, put some more lies in it

[Napoleon Da Legend]
Why the fuck you gotta pop up every 5 minutes?
You ain’t welcomed in my cypher you a dick rider
I don't do this for the clicks I only think broader
If I can have a positive effect on one person
I can die happy knowing that I put work in

[Devil]
What you afraid to play with major leaguers?

[Napoleon Da Legend
To me it ain’t a game if u was on the book I’d have ya page deleted
I’m here to leave my legacy and spread a certain vibes
Success ain’t only about being commercialized

Chorus x2
The devil speaks when you’re vulnerable
Throws a few compliments to get along with you
U let him in then he gonna have the floor with you
Let u rot until your core turns deplorable

[Devil
What if u drop a project nobody talks about it ?
Cause the way this game is man I really doubt it
Everybody got a song everybody got an album
You on ya soap box u saw how they deaded Malcom

[Napoleon Da Legend]
You know you make me laugh, you used to serve a purpose
But ya no longer needed thank u for ya service
I do this, for me and select few
That stay loyal to the cause like Jet Blue
I used to hate my own voice and the way that I looked
But in time that all changed look all the places I booked
People gonna judge regardless they just wanna hear me honest
And spill my guts over beats that’s a bit melodic

[Devil]
That’s idiotic! What’s the point if there ain’t no profit?

[Napoleon Da Legend]
See that’s the problems, you suckers always counting pockets
So don’t worry about ya boy I always find a way
To survive, and still thrive in this modern day
You can keep chasing, I’m be patient
Even tho I’m not patient I’m a keep making
I know ya true nature Azazel
Our relationship ends today, find another friend to play

[Devil]
I’ve been with you for too long u can’t cut me off
Who else u gonna talk to when u by yourself
And all is lost ?

[Napoleon Da Legend]
I’ll be alright I can figure that one out
Until then I wish you luck kid peace I’m out...

Chorus x2
The devil speaks when you’re vulnerable
Throws a few compliments to get along with you
U let him in then he gonna have the floor with you
Let u rot until your core turns deplorable
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. BBass - Black Privilege 4
[BBass Chorus]
We shall overcome
We will pick up the pieces
We've always been so strong
We can build empires with our will
And I will climb so high
and the people will rise once again
it's in my DNA
it's my privilege yea

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
I Gaze at the horizon see the sun rising
With an idea that sparked a barrel full of gun powder
Been bashed and laughed at bad mouthed and assed out
Crashing out on a stranger's couch passed out
I Never tapped out got myself a laptop
Treat it like a trap house and make sure that the track hot
Always had to fed for myself Investing in myself
I refuse to put the blame on anybody else
Was told I needed hits was told my numbers too low
Was told I was too lyrical and I needed some new clothes
Was told nobody knows u u need some more publicity
Get some tats dye ya hair make ya image more interesting
Follow fads, matter fact take ya pride and swallow that
That’s where you wrong I don’t show my ass for follow backs
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks up in my gut
They banking on the fact we thinking we not good enough

[BBass Chorus]
We shall overcome
We will pick up the pieces
We've always been so strong
We can build empires with our will
And I will climb so high
and the people will rise once again
it's in my DNA
it's my privilege yea

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
We cried a desert of tears enough to fill up all the Great Lakes
And made us sing amazing grace so they can save face
Endangered like honey bees we the worlds melaninators
My soul stuck inside a Paisley Park elevator
This ain’t for the charts, travel to the uncharted
We bombarded tackling obstacles unguarded
Bout to finish what I done started
Mix some black magic with some mutant powers to become marvels
And from a spark all things are possible
No weapons that’s formed against us shall prosper
And No longer shall slander against our name stick
Left our baggage on that boat and we abandoned ship!
Game face like everyday’s a championship
And take flight without thinking of a landing strip
From a seed grows trees like Malcom by any means
Word to combat jack we gon dreams those dream

[BBass Chorus]
We shall overcome
We will pick up the pieces
We've always been so strong
We can build empires with our will
And I will climb so high
and the people will rise once again
it's in my DNA
it's my privilege yea

[BBass Bridge]
Know your place
know your worth
it was written
with blood
in the dirt
that you are
a child of kings (yea)
every time they tell you no
you have to take a swing (yea)
I am living proof
descendant of slaves
they try to tell me no and make me behave
we can't help but lift our voice and sing
(lift every voice and sing)
we found our power
and the joy that it brings
Track Name: One Shot for Madlib
Assertive, committed murder over the beat surface
Rocking T shirts over the years you seen my words flourish
Like my discography discovery my mythology
Encourage you to steal it keep ya dollars ain’t no cover fee
It’s on me tonight, open bar, tip the bartender my life changed
that day I hit up the guitar center
Bought me the pro tools a 103 TLM
And got on a 24 hour cycle like CNN
Fox News and MSNBC back in DC like
"I need to move out of this city, think I see the light"
Stuck in my ways I had to Feng Shuey, drunk state
Out here I can’t excel that’s a cheap Hyundai
20 years in DC was a week in New York
Meeting my hero’s in the flesh they ain’t the people you thought
And yo they fucked up and twisted like me, I’m motivated more
Snoop said "to be the boss you gotta pay the cost"

Chorus x2
1 shot for Madlib 2 shots for Dilla
Peace to Big L and Tupac / he was the realest
3 for the heads that bop when the beats dopes
And 4 for the hustlers who set and reach they goals

I don’t mind the birds these bombs is time deferred
I’m a cross between Ip Man and Heisenberg
Iron Mike Tys', twice superb
And No!
We don’t sound alike, I rhyme with different of type of words
I might stir controverse inside this universe
Tackle uncertain times my attitude is super sure
Weather storms stronger than Jupiter’s mingle with the unscrupulous the same people rumored to have ruined this
Passed the meme watching and gotcha gotcha
That classic, Frank Sinatra
Submarines Tanks and choppers
I got to war with class, and switch the format
smash the phonograph in half I’m on a war path
That rebel INS, I level up and get fresh I’m next to none
I get the bread you keep the excess
And now I got em apologizing on they dead bed
And I accept it I ain’t even mad that shit dead yo

Chorus x2
1 shot for Madlib 2 shots for Dilla
Peace to Big L and Tupac / he was the realest
3 for the heads that bop when the beats dopes
And 4 for the hustlers who set and reach they goals

Black like tar like the plight of avatars
Black like the black light shine black like a star
Black like the streets at night Black like dreadlocks
Black like afterlife the aftermath of a headshot
Black like the passion of Christ and absence of light
Black like my fashion is right
Black like /
Damn that fucked me up you actually right
Track Name: Jodeci
Sexually speaking I’m like an expert
See you rocking a vest networking but how that neck work
30 percent gentlemen 20 percent jerk
The rest of me is animal you can be my vet nurse
I like em best when they squirt leaving a wet skirt
Dressed down around the crib with a sweatshirt
Ultimate "Beat" master petite physique bagger
Tea bag for the tea but who gon' kiss the feet after
Freedom of sex matter fact but both freaking obsessed
With fantasies society wouldn’t even accept
We know our deepest secrets and all our turn ons
I’m might just dip under the table just keep ya shirt on
Stay nonchalant, finish ya plate like nothing happening
Pass the napkin I’m a wipe my face up right after it
Next stop parking lot elevator no cams
Like my favorite slow jam she required no hands
And now the score is tied we ain’t even make it back
We in the back seat naked I’m bout to break her back
Windows fogged up with my socks up aroused up
Fuck around, we gon get both our asses locked up
Heard a car screeched we rushed to put clothes back
Heart pounding I can smell her scent on my nose cap
Both knowing I gotta take her home
I just make em moan I know girl damn c-mon
She live with her sister and I’m staying with a friend
And she promise to be home to babysit for a friend so
For today that’s how the story ends
At 4 PM with an ice pack laid up like a scorpion

[Bridge: Jodeci]
Tonight, I need your body (I need your body)
Tonight, you've got my time (Girl whatever you want, I would do it)
Tonight, you won't be sorry (You, oh-ohhhhh)
Tonight, you've got my mind (Ohhh, ohhh, yeahh, yeahh)

[Verse 3: JoJo]
Shit, I could go on for days, I couldn't go for weeks
I could even play with another body but it wouldn't last cuz I'm a freak
Ahhhhhh, everything you say, just adore everything you do
And now you want to close my eyes, all I want to freak is you
Track Name: Chicken & Waffles
Graduated napoleon I'm glad you made it
Got masses going crazy infatuated
Got the naysayers agitated impatient
Trying to solve it like algebraic equation
Calculating probabilities for him to blow
Against the odds like tanning when it's 10 below
It's Po street entrepreneur hit the block like in
Normandie when the yanks conquered the shore
Or when the Kamikazes hit Pearl Harbor for war
It's too late check mate what u arguing for?
They put obstacles against us it's hard for the poor
Still accomplish everyday we sharpen the sword
With slang, type colorful like Wu-Tang skits
For the gusto till they say I'm too damn rich
Urban legend of a marksman who can't miss
My target and leave a mark like Lu Kang kicks
Refusing to starve like them Sudan kids
They try to change you when u make it like the New aunt Viv
It's amphibious, all the slander is hideous
I stay real, those who pander be the silliest
I regulate black panther in the city kid
And spread the movement like Wu-Tang affiliates
Yep tell it like it really is ain't hard to tell I don't really mix with the idiots

Chorus x2
I'm Picasso, everything said colossal
Holier than thou kick that gospel
This that chicken and waffles ask Roscoe
Cooking up another batch kid i got chu

Controversial like the wall to separates us from Mexico
Game’ll do you dirty like a glory hole episode
They violating everyday we accept it tho
Was caught slipping that was only for a second tho
I like it straight, either it’s a yes or no
Hit it then I’m out on my 007 flow
Black Connery Sean it’s just the god in me
Feel like I got a ticking time bomb inside of me
And i am that I am while u try to be
Staring at impossible odds from the driver seats
Power moves that affect my own privacy
More stress but I never let it bother me
This new shit’ll give ya brain a lobotomy
All I wanted was to make my pops proud of me
Maybe he watching me regardless of what
You gotta pay back all the shit u borrowed from us
From dawn to dusk I bust don’t respond to fluff
That’s like a tri-cycle verse a monster truck and yo
Unshakable faith cause everything that
You got the next day god can take it away
Then it’s gone and you crying like bitch
Bow wow challenge trying to lie like you rich
It’s an experiment they fucking with our minds yo
We been thru a lot worst we gon be fine tho
God flow incorporated no pork that’s for Satan
I gotta keep it raw for the basements
Wasn’t designed for ya local station
But can still catching rocking in exotic locations yea

Chorus x2
Picasso, everything said colossal
Holier than thou kick that gospel
This that chicken and waffles ask Roscoe
Cooking up another batch kid i got chu
Track Name: African Drums 4
Adamantium monks up the bunk
With the pump, body in the trunk smelling like skunk
Static to the selecta claim the sector
It’s a threat like Anti-Balaka versus Seleka
Tribal wars warrior clash and lion’s roar
Another dies and then a child is born the paths torn
Stabbed with a black thorn that’s the norm
Digging up some diamonds from the ground and pass em on
While Imams and pastors mourn those who past on
We keep tackling the day with our mask on
Bronze and copper playing soccer
Tuma Basa crafting like George Washington Carver
The saga 20 in 10 off like Tabata
Secrets of the Kaballah eating rice with Mataba
It’s deep like Sound of drum that shake the ground
and walls and feeds the soul only found in the slums

Chop the head of a chicken u see the blood drip
Seasonal rain you can see how deep the mud gets
We throwing rocks at the trees to pop mangos
So hot fuck a sneaker rocking flip flops or sandals
Cop some bread from the corner store for my grandma
My moms never met her pops that’s my grandpa
Labattoir looking like a scene from Avatar
Burn Babylon the french tried to grab it all
Take it back to the roots that’s where the proof lives
Some of y’all cry like Babies when the truth hits
The myth the legends the gift the essence
The "it", the trick was for us to think we separate
And slowly erode the thread that connects us
And Disconnect us from the soul and infect us
My heart is in mainland where you don’t need a spray tan
Eating plantains and eggplants, Africa
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Crazy DJ Bazarro - Exhibit Y
[Napoleon Da Legend]
When I was up and in my teens clubbing the scene
Drove a gold Sebring called it a yellow submarine
Rocking Custom made T's hustling just to supplement my fees
Not too far from our government of thieves
If it was up to me, all these politicians out of here
Corrupt system of blood suckers rush these killers out of here
Trump types out of here, all these judges out of here
Neighbors sending me threats telling me it’s getting loud in here

[Bazarro]
They can go to hell and get the fuck out of here

[Napoleon Da Legend]
Smoking black and milds drunk Daily was routine
Hitting Adams Morgan up: 14th and U street
Cedric have the two seat tita had the beamers
Phenom broke out Lexus before the court subpoenas
Head up to Potomac at Malick's crib was chilling
Alonzo Mourning's neighborhood freak chicks in the building
Ritz and DC live was popping Tupac D
Dominique Moxie I was 15 belligerent and cocky
Heading to the back to the embassy, women in the car seat

[Napoleon Da Legend]
There was Yankee Boy, Ron Deberrie contrarily to popular belief
most the action happened on the street
Prostitution was in full effect these girls were turning tricks
We was at school next day and we wasn’t learning shit
Unapologetic it was ours for us to get it
And anything less would means we would be raising Armageddon
Charlottesville to Philly, King of Prussia, Delaware
Tolerance for liquor high we drunk and still we well aware
We was on the come up traps were hidden everywhere

[Napoleon Da Legend]
They sell us fear yet they scared of our melanin and hair
our intelligence athletics and our flair
Cause my culture and my heritage is rare
Camouflaging their intentions, underneath the mask that they wear
I swear, it seemed I would escape death weekly
Scoop Life in PG county then we would jet to DC
After hour spots we let the food absorb the liquor
Dodging DUI's paranoid, when the lights would flicker

[Bazarro]
Yall were crazy, running around like...

[Napoleon Da Legend]
At the Eye Bar with Tita, Tony Kitrell and Marlon
Brawling with Allen Iverson's bodyguards in the process
a Belvy bottle broke, blood was flowing on the carpet
Chicks were screaming, we were throwing wild blows in the darkness
Woke up in my apartment like "did that really happen?"
Couldn’t snap out of that reality I was attracting
Infatuated by entertainment and the life of rapper
Brothers had some talent and we just want to tap in

[Bazarro]
Oh my God! How you still alive?

[Napoleon Da Legend]
They call me Po the Leg emperor
Fuck that!
Call me Po the leg Tesla, Leg the pro wrestler
Po the Leg excellence wreck a set on the regular
extra-terres' embezzler my weapons got the best of ya
They slept on the beloved, methods I got a plethorah
You ain’t really tough, when nobody standing next to ya
You yelling what? Bruh, you prey or a predator?
Calling a vic' a prey what happens when they arresting ya?
At the church praying with the man who oppress ya?
Track Name: Questions
What car did Malcom X drive? What brand was Martin shoes?
What type Of liquor Marcus Garvey drink?
What type party Bob Marley hit?
And What did?
Harriet Tubman rock? Langston what type of watch he got?
What type of chicks Haile Selassie hit?
Who was Steve Jobs mistress I wonder if her body lit ?
What Peter Tosh wear? What does God fear?
Everything I says a prayer from my lips to god’s ears
What did Biggie read? What about Billy D
What type of crib does Lauryn Hill live in?
What about Capleton what type of Soda does he drink?
Did James Baldwin like rocking chains and Cuban links?
Does Warren Buffet vape? Does Kim Kardashian meditate?
Does Jamie Dimon drink lean to medicate?
Did Louis Armstrong fake publicity to sell a tape?
Did Victor Hugo hit the local bar to celebrate?

We so curious about certain things for some people
Other people get a pass
Or it just don’t matter
Why is that?
Or are we all just too distracted to notice ?

How many units Sade did in her first week?
Who dated Rosa Parks matter fact Joan of Ark
Did Galileo keep his sneakers clean?
And during the civil rights, did Dick Gregory pick a team?
Would the Virgin Mary take a selfie?
And would Toussaint drop a viral video if it made him wealthy?
What’s Jordan’s thoughts about law enforcement?
And mass incarceration?
what type of juice did Sammy Davis chase with?
What type of telephone did Jack Johnson have?
What type of social issues make Magic Johnson mad?
How about Elon Musk what types of chicks he cuff?
Did Michael Angelo and Picasso get pissy drunk?
What type of weed they smoke was Tupac really broke?
Was Nostradamus trolling or did he really know ?
Did Ghandi break his fast during the hunger strike ?
Do you like music from famous co-signs or cause a song is tight ?

Would you marry without pre-up ?
And If you had to pick, you rather big butts or double D cups?
And if it’s used, do you throw away or dust it off?
How many strikes you give a friend before you cut em off?
You borrow money do you pay it back?
Or do you charge to the game and just escape the fact?
You keep ya word? Return ya favors? Are u jerk?
If I bring my girl around and leave, will you flirt?
You know your worth? Are you jealous of ya friends?
Do you cheer when they lose secretly cry when they win?
Do you love to feel important cause
a little child inside ya feels inadequate?
And does narcissist admit to it?
Would you share an opportunity you felt as
if you had a friend you knew could handle it better than you could?
Or let it fall by the wayside for a stranger?
What you do when you feel anger?
Track Name: Biopic
[Napoleon Da Legend verse1]
And yo I travel with a wealth of knowledge
Language is well polished
Seen friendships get wrecked for less twenty dollars
I’m fake modest seen too many break like a promise
Cats acting arrogant and spitting straight vomit
I make do with I got like Sekou
Touré and jetted when them bastards came thru
On Wall Street rocking a grey suit I’m recluse
Play it cool it’s getting ugly cover ya face boo
Realities harsh not Pixar, Chicago to Crewshaw
that’s why I stay sharp like Gemstar
I’m Nimrod, skating thru the scene like Lindross
They silent when I speak could hear the sound of a pin drop
Freestyle moves I treat life like improv
Some talk behind my back but stay flooding my inbox
Shorty wants me up in her stinkbox I think big
Only way to make it thru this games with a thick skin

[Napoleon Da Legend chorus]
If you make a movie bout me get Spike Lee
Co-direct with Tarantino hit up Jet Lee
Link it up with Denzel and tell Will to play me
Alchemist can do the soundtrack, verse from AZ

[Napoleon Da Legend verse2]
This my biopic, sign a photograph they wanna buy a pic
You wanna feature? Speak to my psychiatrist
Seen rappers compromise and acting like side chicks
My mind sick analyze it every single line stick
I make the time shift like Caribbean pirate
And stay under control guess a part of me’s a tyrant
Spit hot fire like Dylon and hydrants
Third world surviving in Saigon environments
Most of y’all can’t fit my dialogue requirements
With power like iheart, I’m die hard, my conquest Rigar
Targarian I spar with dragons
Stabilize the tripod it’s quite hard to catch him
Drop 10, only then, I might start relaxing
Travel thru the uncharted like star galactic
A mix of wit and sarcasm when I start blacking
Park avenue action, all I do is drop classics

[Napoleon Da Legend chorus]
If you make a movie bout me get Spike Lee
Co-direct with Tarantino hit up Jet Lee
Link it up with Denzel and tell Will to play me
Alchemist can do the soundtrack, verse from AZ
Track Name: Lost Jewelz
Cop this product wholesale my soul ain’t for sale
No need to ride any coattails you know the smell
When Lucifer’s ass pops up in the room
Like a Piru wearing blue, I do not approve
I’m scoring bucket making awkward moves life is hardcore
I just parkour over the obstacles
To the limit pushing anymore would be impossible
It’s obvious, no need to call a whore a prostitute
I got the proper tools to rock a tune opportun'
Hit em with a chopper "Boom" make sure they copping two
This is proper food come feed you too comfy
I hustle like I’m in a third world country
Pimp C, Bun B, the sun on me
Blue chips this shit stupid kid I’m dumb on beats
Carry the burden of my people got a ton on me
When I enter they stare like I got a gun me
Chapter 4, page 6, don’t play around with these chicks
Fuck around you’ll get jacked for all the paper you get
And these well branded bandits in the music scene
Throwing smoke in ya vision and compromise what you believe
This the real talk not that fake woke shit
Well grounded on earth no Frank Ocean

This that real talk not that fake woke shit
Well grounded on earth no Frank Ocean
That Ambrosia for Heads minus the hipster bloggers
respectful but never been an ass kissing artist
Matter a fact, I’ve been known to go against market
And penetrate despite they efforts to defend the target
Muddy shoes over the red carpet this is Ted Talk bars
smashing records in the box office
Fuck ya firm, you can get boxed inside ya office
And then get put in a pine box, that’s ya coffin
This is rarity like a moment of clarity
I caught a piece of ya attention momentarily
This what it feels like to be dealing with integrity
Here to unlock a few doors, here’s a set a keys
Barrels of gems, buried in the ground like Medellin
Had to hustle, out on my own before seventeen
Nothing to lean on, other than my vertebrates
I had to come up plan and make it percolate
And there were days where my courage would break
When Too much pride and ya money low a terrible place
Had to scrape, feeling sorry for self, never an option
The best lessons are left behind at the bottom

A plate of escarole in life I play the Escobar role, no stress
Working hard to worry less tomorrow
Fresh barramundi, Fela Kuti In Burgundi Ferrari 2-seat
Bumping Alborosie, my life’s movie...
Track Name: Master of Fate
[Napoleon Da Legend verse1]
Add the math up grass roots, phasma
Charisma in my voice could be explained by my asthma
Kings plaza where my name rings like Gaza
Survivor, Messiah Rap epitomizer
When you powerful they’ll try to minimize ya
And put up advertisements to try to hypnotize ya
Soul Assata inside ya we rise up
Blocking the barrage of mirage and facades
Besides our nature is of goddesses and gods
And we cognizant of the fact they honestly a fraud
And The scheme is just ponzi written up in Kanji
Living in a fantasy like Jungle of Jumanji
Peace to Alpha Blondie and Tyken Jah Fakoly
Keeping watch of what I’m feeding in my body
Majestic like Garvey up in a car seat
God gene, my speed Mach 3 like Martin Lockheed

[Erykah Badu Hook]
Alhamdulillah Allah Jehovah
Yahweh Dios Ma'at Jah
Rastafari fyah dance, sex, music, hip-hop

It's bigger than religion
Hip-hop
It's bigger than my nigga
Hip-hop
It's bigger than the government
This one is the healer, hip-hop

[Napoleon Da Legend verse2]

Yo snakes in grass hide that right
Took the wrong path and I died that was a past life
Acquainted myself with my dark side dodge lies
Got more than 9 lives, how u think I got wise ?
This is a blueprint for you to copy
This is smart godfather logic not Luca Brasi
Not for the stupid and the sloppy
for those who bigger than chasing after groupie in the lobby
Independent thinkers who don’t follow influencers
In the media, those with high level intuition
Head is straight those who make plans and meditate
Self aware but not soft and not afraid to celebrate
Compassionate more mature than current head of state
optimist convinced that tomorrow will be a better day
If that ain’t you? Still cool, you can listen to it too
But put 2 and 2 together and it’s really meant for you...

[Verse Erykah Badu]
We ain't dead said the children don't believe it
We just made ourselves invisible
Underwater, stove-top, blue flame scientists come out with your scales up
Get baptized in the ocean of the hungry

When niggas turn in to gods
Walls come tumblin...(aaahhh)

[Hook]
Alhamdulillah Allah Jehovah
Yahweh Dios Ma'at Jah
Rastafari fyah dance, sex, music, hip-hop

It's bigger than religion
Hip-hop
It's bigger than my nigga
Hip-hop
It's bigger than the government
This one is the healer, hip-hop

[Verse Erykah Badu]
Told you we ain't dead yet
We been livin' through your internet
You don't have to believe everything you think
We've been programmed wake up, we miss you
They call you indigo, we call you Africa
Go get baptized in the ocean of the people
Say reboot, refresh, restart
Fresh page, new day, O.G.'s, new key...
