This project also features performances from Narubi Selah, Mad Squablz, Skeezo and ProducHer Beats. The first single / video is titled “Black Privilege” produced by IllMind directed by Rae Maxwell featuring Mad Squablz, which challenges common stereotypes associated with “White Privilege”.

Verse 1 [Napoleon Da Legend] Highly debated documented from the bottom how I made it On a long journey got a marathoner’s dedication Muscles sore double shot of adrenaline in my core Feeling the hot sun beating on my melanin more You’ll never understand my pain and what I effin’ endure “No” is “Yes” don’t accept rejection anymore The embodiment of strength god gave me the gift All these jealous haters patiently waiting to see me slip Climbed a mountain just to find another mountain to climb They wanna muffle my voice they tried to silence my mind But I’m here! You can’t humiliate or kill me with fear I’m full of life that makes me rich I’m billionaire Regardless your education your bank account and your privilege I’m achieving more with less and that’s where the difference is I’m focused can never take it away from me Salute the G I’m going all in pray for me! Chorus Verse 2 [Mad Squablz] Sellin me short I’m sellin my knack for dying they say cause I’m black I’m showing my lack of triumph attack and conquer we have to prosper they can’t decline us try to desecrate as we pose a threat to ya whole environment strength in numbers they hate to love us we know that’s why a lot was taken from us there’s strength in color was infiltrated mainly to make sure you hate ya brother giving us drugs and weapons to help us erase each other its wicked listen they privilege is white our privilege is death they living the life we live in distress scrambling tryna find the answers to this madness the sadness why the hell a white man gotta to kill us for us to realize we matter batter and bruised I’m either mad or confused we have to win every battle either that or we lose unbeatable when united that’s the only way to fight it fists up eff the system yeah they know we the truth

[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend] I touch a generation what I generated got em jaded I dropped a tape all this garbage no longer tolerated You dropped your pants to get famous I’m anticipated I got a plan and plus I cannot be manipulated I’m from the jungle half of you bums is domesticated My sound is rugged but I like my chicks sophisticated Fuck with me I’m KGB get physically eliminated Its rather particular the way that I articulate it Your raps is gibberish I rep for the indigenous You getting cash I’m getting stocks that give up dividends That’s the fundamental difference Not to mention the legend’s not sentimental kid I’m not conscientious Bomb your henchmen catch me on the big shit Lama’s spit bullets to racist folks acting condescending Get smacked like Trump supporters at a Farrakhan speech The pharaoh lives long like the legacy of Sean P listen [Chorus x2: Sean P] I’m in a whole different space call it Andromeda Battlestar Galactic with the ratchet I will lama ya [Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] Proper Kundalini opposite of Mussolini Picture two centerfolds poolside in blue bikinis Who can see me send a missile through your beanie Whodini if you don’t like it delete me In a tipi with a native you might see me on a playlist Might be cheating on your wife she might be cheating with your neighbor They watching every step thinking you smarter than the rest Ready to stab you in the back like Monica Seles People love success but they hate successful people So I let my music do the damage that’s the lesser evil The devil’s in the details reach levels unheard So when you hear a bar from PO put respect on his word

Brother J 03:08
[Verse1 : Napoleon Da Legend] Camouflage dashiki Anunaki species Kamikaze god body in a tipi Your gossip was leaky watch when you speak me My life much liver than what you watching on TV The beast rapes Africa Machiavelli massacre You fronting with a mask on ya I’m a hunted gatherer I’m coming that’s the date that you circle on your calendar You die by the gun when you flirting with the caliber Arthur with Excalibur scar a challenger Eating halibut in Austria the kid is awfully talented Jigsaw quick with the draw Chuck Norris Better withdraw like a corner with a drug shortage Your career gets cut shorter get deaded for cutting corners I’m clutch like Jordan in the fourth quarter Sucks don’t it? Fast rhymes over produced Not even half as good put the one over the two Or the three over the six do the math it’s half The last shall be the first so who gets the last laugh Penetrate the zone like Isiah Thomas in the Pistons Oppress us with some diabolical intentions I tell it unapologetic they stole the swag stole the land Sold it back and we still owe tax Blow stacks to show status status quo is this establishment I quote Brother J time to civilize the savages [hook x4: Brother J] Here’s the move cause I see none I never boast I never brag I get the job done [verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] The messiah was prophesized on Sumerian rocks Then the dots start to connect on luciferian plots They built projects we call em experiment blocks Start to speak out you get put on a terrorist watch Racist chatter to make the electorate hit the polls You want to be a star for them you gotta fit the mold Cause ignorance is big money they caking on us Making promises turn around and faking on us How long you gonna fall for the trap? They switched the rapping to trap So many failed cause it’s actually that Ducking bullets like Donald Trump be ducking questions Too much aggression growing up in spots drug infested America’s a colony they occupy the streets Showing documentaries that make us idolize thieves But my third eye sees that the system is rigged The rich get rich had to switch the way that I think Urban scientist masters of the earth’s environment They threw us dirt then we turned it into diamonds Search for the knowledge while you burn through your dollars Hitting dermatologists to fit in bleach your skin And teach kids to hate their melanin Drugs you selling em you intelligent but now the beast arrested your development Blissful state of ignorance fickleness leads the bitterness Peace to Brother J I’m a let him finish it [hook x4: Brother J] Here’s the move cause I see none I never boast I never brag I get the job done I'm not the monkey political, nor am I the physical The rhythmical spiritual, the mystical magical Movement is circle, never 90 degrees of a square I'm the gorilla - robotics will run in a scare Just to find that the zero's the ground

Freedom 03:11
[verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend] Incorrect intellect on Internet spread Political threats when you speak the truth to heads Losing respect for these rooster head cats who mislead All the masses into thinking it was cool to beg It’s lies to me I’m only civilized to a degree The sodomist philosophy won’t agree with the god in me Solomon breed turn to bottom feeders inside of gotham fiending For a pot to piss in the clock’s ticking hard to be so optimistic Positive thinking is key symphonies come in epiphanies We don’t want no sympathy If you live to see passed 25 you a god Cause the odds are against that hard for them to defend that If power was a guitar then who’s pulling the strings black? From PE to X-Clan I’m bringing that thing back We selling drugs on the same streets they used to lynch at Freedom lies beyond where the fence at remember that [hook x4: Napoleon Da Legend] Freedom is in the mind [verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] Me and the queen at the door Cuba Afena Shakur Mahogany scenery playing like I seen it before Speak for the poor throughout the years you seen me mature ‘f I didn’t learn from my mistakes I would repeat em for sure 2 pennies a thought great bars worth millis and more Riding till the wheels fall and my Achilles is torn The city’s yours feeling like Iverson before the draft Everybody saw the potential way before came the cash Plate of sweet potato mash say grace then we laugh Sacrificed my life for this you can say I’m a sado-mas Socrates and Plato math I played the back and studied Don’t sleep on this humility pay me in cash money Hit the pavement in Beijing we don’t play with these things My name rings taking selfies in Dubai on skate rinks See my name on the Sphinx moving cake like Brinks Sometimes I stop and meditate on how great and blessed my life is [Verse 3: Napoleon Da Legend] Had to stop playing roles resistance’ll take a toll Or let the wind take control of my bare naked soul Gliding like the fingers of Curtis Mayfield on the instrument And stretch my vision further than just getting the Benjamins Its cleansing and quite pleasant a glimpse of heaven cause Peace inside the mind is where you find the essence Where you find answers to all your questions Erasing doubts you can see the devilish energy and chase it out Vice breeds inside the psyche twice the light speed I rather live my life then dream of how it might be Keeping my third eye open on this earth I’m free Got joints on my phone that’s so hot it’ll burn through my jeans I never spit kid these words I bleed from deep within Was born a quite introverted child I used to keep it in But music helped me break the shackles and made it natural Cause when it catch you ain’t nothing like it

The Nature 05:14
[Deepak Chopra] Intention on the fertile ground of attention Has infinite organizing power. As long as you do not violate the other Laws of nature, through your intent you can literally command The laws of nature to fulfill your dreams and desires [Verse1: Napoleon Da Legend] With the intent to be an MC that’ll touch souls up close and personal dialogue with the upmost Never sell myself short like Mugsy Bogues in Baltimore I got the vision the universe provides enough support Took crazy steps outside the box no safety net Faced death with an open door policy like H&M Our intuition is the greatest gem trees grow That’s their nature I might as well just take a page from them [Deepak Chopra] Cars and houses and bank notes and clothes and airplanes: These are symbols. Chasing symbols is like settling for the map Instead of the territory. It created anxiety anything that exists In the physical universe can be acquired by relinquishing your attachment To it, because with detachment there is freedom to create. [Verse2: Napoleon Da Legend] Uh Huh detachment is tough no such thing as having too much But it becomes a burden when what you have is a crutch I rather gather trust in myself create and make more Hit the pavement and score turn around explain what I saw Diving train of thought no longer chained to what I was taught People talk that’s the same stigma Iverson fought Rocking in Belgium then I fly to New York like Boris Yeltzin Investing in the moment when I spoke I’m sure you felt it [Deepak Chopra] Like a river, money must keep flowing. Otherwise it begins to stagnate, To strangulate and it can no longer support life. Circulation is what keeps it Alive and vital. [Verse3: Napoleon Da Legend] Life is a cycle that is survival be generous with your gifts you can’t measure What it will buy you Heart attacks happen when the arteries clog When money stops to circulate that’s when the system is flawed Imagine earth that’s not spinning you breathing but not living Drowning yourself in pity mentality of a victim Not that not the wave you get what you give So reinvest and never sweat it when you spending your chips [Deepak Chopra] Do less and accomplish more ultimately you come to the state When you do nothing and accomplish everything This means that there is just a faint idea Then the manifestation of the idea comes about effortlessly What is commonly called a miracle Is actually an expression of the law of least effort [Verse4: Napoleon Da Legend] Let my moves talk Michael Jackson to the bank I moonwalk I’m in the pool hall moving furniture in U-Hauls New crib new walls cruising inside a 2 door Drop the new raw relaxing while these cats do more I let it come to me never bark loud Move in silence renew the balance spark it when it’s dark out Can swim in peace even when the sharks out Travel far south eating Paleo style leaving the carbs out [Deepak Chopra] You have a unique talent and a unique way of expressing it There is something that you can do better than anyone else In the whole world expressing your talents to fulfill needs Creates unlimited wealth and abundance [Verse5: Napoleon Da Legend] AZ in Doe or Die I’m Rather Unique Rather teach you how to fish cause I rather you eat Allow my soul to drive the car and take the passenger seat I’m the only one to occupy the space that I’m in You can copy the bars but can never say it like him You can’t pursue your life purpose going 80% Heart of a champion all in we playing to win [Deepak Chopra] Everyone has heard the expression what you sow is what you reep Obviously if we want to create happiness in our lives We must learn to sow the seeds of happiness Therefore, karma implies the action of conscious choice making [Verse6: Napoleon Da Legend] Whichever way you look you make decision Add up all these choices and it equals how you living Intersections situations and plenty questions Grew up in a city where youngins is very reckless Hustled and schemed to put dough in my Perry Ellis That creates karma that can infiltrate your armor Did things at the crib that would incriminate my momma Had to balance it out we was wilding out fly south try another route Manage my ego and drown it out They say that karma’s a bitch karma’s a snitch It’s blow your spot in time after the drama’s lit [Deepak Chopra] When you discover your essential nature and know who you really are In that knowing itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have [Verse7: Napoleon Da Legend] K.O.S Knowledge of Self To manifest your full potential is to honor yourself The law is universal you can never murder the truth Kick in the door show the world the best version of you My ego scarred when I was reaching for the stars Speak from the heart before you know it You’ll be seeing Po peaking the charts Beacon of light in the dark know what it’s like to feel defeated Taking dirt naps and then repeat it We all got the mind of a genius in our genetics It’s all connected it’s up to us to manifest it Word to Napoleon Hill whatever the mind can believe and conceive It can achieve You can achieve….

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] Its diabolic how we die for the dollars why even bother Being civilized surrounded by savages at the bottom Like Sodom and Gomorrah chop it up in the tour bus Depositing the cash watch the government extort us Exploiting us dogging us out like Calvin Broadus Life can get weirder than a Salvador portrait Drop gems more precious than a dinosaur offspring Grab necks sub-zero rip spinal cords off em Fuck a metaphor get medical attention for em They tried to give us crumbs but we never settle for it Too much melanin will mess up the decorum they said Could be building with one another but we warring instead All mislead strings tied our arms and legs The puppet master’s profiting until the target is met We just numbers tax IDs social security black men die prematurely Perception is reality what you believe is what is Consumer more is what we feeding the kids Using wire taps who’s on the phone move swift like brother Mouzone Mistakes can be fatal from the cradle to the tombstone To each his own I shine let it be known Soul searching Sojourn until my soul reach home [Akon] The system in the America was never built for black people [Hook: G.U.R.U]

[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend] It gets rough you can get buzz they Start saying you the next up Life slows ya momentum they start saying you messed up The way it's set up they don't teach us the biz Cause They scared / that's once we learn it we start reaching the kids Paycheck to paycheck bill after bill stack It's almost like a song got me feeling like Ronnie milsap Nostalgia : it's natural for us to want that "feel" back Politic with snakes mostly find me where the "real" at Started from a brick and then you wonder how they build that Some get depressed and give up hope over a mishap Followed by the shadow of death / where it's pitch black Survived hell/ that's why I take the time to give back Schools is underfunded children undereducated Leaders we would look up to is under investigation Better to love the art never worship the artist We born with a spark but often it gets tarnished Temptation of / taking the fast lane I rather move slow then burn out in fast flame Like Paul walker rest in power kid my thoughts race a thousand per hour with light beams that make the clouds split Walking thru Flatbush junction to with a function corruption starts at the top and grows like a fungus Makes me wonder how we keep from going under People’s minds waking up and we growing in numbers The color of Americas changing information is shared Love is love it's contagious to care The system is rigged and the truth is / the game isn't fair Overseas my cousins barefoot I gave him a pair Flashing paper on ya snaps but no paper to share The kids are listening so watch what you say on the snare it's your world [Hook: Vocalist] It’s Your World [Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] Judge mental no person without an apparent flaw They say the youth lost but who raised em that's the parents fault Family picture where ya dad at? Out the picture Mom bitter grew up thinking that the world out to get cha Spazzes out in school cause he's jealous of his peers Bullying the class you can tell that he wears/ his emotions on his sleeve / coping with his inner demons It's hard to shine they intimidated by the genius His mom loves him but neglected by the pops In a few years they predict he'll be arrested by the cops Emulating rap stars he be seeing on the web With these chicks you already / chivalry is dead Hanging out on the corner at night with older dudes Put in uncomfortable positions he gotta show and prove Going thru the motions for a few dollars in his pocket Copped him a pair of Jordans/ now he feeling like he got it Limeade and chicken pattie from fisherman cove All he can do is live/ day by day and get a with the flow Headphones wrapped tight on his dome makes him escape Had a chance to play ball but he gave it away They say the only to way to really learns to make a mistake Doing what he know to survive open your eyes Easy to judge from the outside And take the truth apart from the lie Low income neighborhoods is apartheid And as we grow, feels like a part of us dies A smart kid with opportunities that compromised Trying to wash the pain / like a load of clothing in the laundromat Cuffed up in the subway cops caught em with a Ganja sack / But that's exactly what he needed Life's a treadmill trynna find the meaning it's your world
