Track Name: Bars 101
You gotta be kidding a lot of yall are beginners
Clogging the business in the kitchen cooking yall should just be
Washing the dishes on social media clocking my pictures
Watching me get it god forbid the following he got’ll topple the system
It’s god given I would die for this surviving in this wilderness
You filming this? Bars 101 inside the syllabus
Spiritually a lyricist fly bandit with high standards
Making moves while I’m standing and quite frankly I’m
Cut from the clothe of Myer Lansky
This is the grand scheme rack a gang of green
You catching gangrene sipping sangria
You waiting for the man to free us
Transmitting via satellite with the panacea
Panoramic anagram only the famalam can understand
Random taking artists out like the son of Sam
I go hard on these chicks like Roxanne you a sham
I’m God Shamgod with the hands
God Damn God or Man is he God or man?
Got product you can cop I got a box in the van
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Mad Squablz - Black 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!

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
Track Name: Andromeda
[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
Track Name: Brother J
[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
Track Name: African Drums II
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
Diet plant based roaming in Savannah landscapes
Secret handshakes we syphon ya fanbase
Plan dates to inundate your airwaves all day
Lurk in every corner like that roach in the hallway
Tribal sacrilegious ceremonies we got machetes
But'll put the double barrel to you homie
Can't teach this my DNA kid I bleed this
Genius dropped part one and made em fiend this
Brothers trying to sound deep talk about Egypt
I tell em take a trip there before they start speaking
Abidjan don style is Burkina Faso murder y'all slow
while I'm swerving thru Lagos
God knows I'm nice large bowls of rice
It's a gold mine we rock keep large goals in sight

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
I’m futuristic I rap in a Delorian
Bums I’m cum ladi slum valedictorian
When I bless I get press like peterians
I hit em with the African heat sub-Saharian
Get C-notes in my section we call it a caesarian
The force of a galloping horse no Sagittarius
Clandestine guided by my ancestors
Shark tank spark an idea get mad investors
Cameroonian Liberian anthem
Whole team shady like Nigerian bankers
Used to have anger issues now I let the slang hit you
When the music has you traveling lands then its official
I’m a survivor came a long way from the bottom
And now I got it sip colladas in Addis Ababa
Modern day Garvey Marcus logic
The richest continent coming together we marching
This for my people
Track Name: Freedom
[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
Track Name: Smithsonian
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
Mental foggy with the melancholy / running with a felons body
Selling Molly ducking federallis
Jealous posse models wink inside elevator lobby
Got the box seat set up how we celebrate and party
Taylor made Cavalli also lay up in Canarsie
Martini Rossi sipping now we switch the car seats
Relax like the shape of suits on Steve Harvey
NDL varsity jackets up in the Barclays
Moxie of a winner all you see the glitter
Very far removed from days of TV dinners
Lunch with the minister no pictures out in public with her
Got the biopic on the way texting the publisher
Whoever fronted now I'm snubbing em
No subs eating breakfast / grubbing up in Dublin
Numbers doubling and tripling Napoleon
My art should have a place Smithsonian

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
I move the crowd move units move the score on the board
Moving bodies like a coroner when I'm on tour
Meet with ambassadors what up Paul? What's happening?
I say it real like bars after which u put a facts in it (facts)
Maximum ILL my chill is automatic ILL-Matic
Troublesome the clothe that I'm cut from is real fabric
U polyester / I'm a jolly good fella
bread expands shoot with red cams Hollywood set ups
Haters mad when u this nice how could u mess up?
If I made that type of music probably would be fed up
But I don't - Midas touch platinum plus you mad much?
I'm what happens when u talk and then u back it up
Action speaks loud peace clown
Have a seat enjoy the show I'm a beast clown
Dennis rodman offensive when I rebound
Stopping the gun violence rather send a message with a beat down
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend featuring Deepak Chopra - The Nature
[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….
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft DJ Blowout - S&P500
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
I spill like petroleum boats opium blow
My slogan overdose emotions like emoji in phones
Napoleon quotes on podiums spoke sold out show
Can make a sniper rifle fold out of my wallet and go
It's a wrap's been a fact finna smack the benefactor
Send it back with the cash in the package and then I tap ya
North east south east got mouths to feed
Avoid unnecessary beef that's more cow to breed
Nobody else looking out for me looking for Houses to purchase
I got no care in the world u got a 1000 nurses
Mountains worth of hearses Berkshire Hathaway
shots fire birds fly away it's my way or the highway
John woo scene Mujahdeen self-confidence of two Ali's
My will power made me who I am that's a black eye pea
Catch more than just a black eye when u tussle with me
Buckets seat up in the vee I don't hustle for free
U begging labels for a push I can unplug ya machine
Don't be caught sleep shit can be costly
closing deals behind the scenes catch games on the floor seat
Sp 500 close a 500 thou fly to London Without funding doing loud numbers
You threw the towel fronting I dropped a song got the Dow jumping
Teachers said I would amount to nothing

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
Nobody love u until everybody love u
When they making money off u everybody love u
F' u ain't making no numbers in this world kick rocks
U know u buzzing when these chicks start blowing up ya inbox
Till they start calling you for favors and verses
people in and out ya crib now the neighbors is nervous
Fake pages and impersonators trolling u out
The music biz was doing bad I sold em dope in a drought
Looking happy when u see me what u joking about
Baby here's something for u to suck on open ya mouth
Interviews with stupid questions like how u got into rap
everybody's into rap so why u asking me that
The money changer with/ one in the chamber my stomach
grumbling from hunger pains / case u wondering
Case u wonder bout the passion in the bars that say
It's part of me I put my heart inside the cards that I play
Didn't graduate from Harvard or Yale but still I talk well
And I keep talking my talk long my talk sell
I “lol” to the bank making deposits
Extorting corporations for bank shaking they pockets
Clock it I'm a hotter than a terrorist watch list
Cash flow is emirate Arabic logic
A dream that's American moved from Maryland up to
Brooklyn then I made it must mean I'm something special then
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. Skeezo - Bring The Action
[verse: Napoleon Da Legend]
Yo the grain I go against it like a slave boat in Memphis
The stage show’s electric and my late flow is Netflix
Mindframe is overzealous my main goal is to get it
Paid flows collecting pesos from angels and devils

[verse: Skeezo]
With music ill never settle Set the bar at higher levels
Bang it out like heavy metal Verbally express my mental
Through verses written with pencil While others trace it like stencil
I exercise on instrumentals Lyrically I’m presidential

[verse: Napoleon Da Legend]
And now the rents due you gotta pay the piper
I was in the gym putting in work like the greatest fighters
Po and Skeezo bring it to whoever claim the nicest

[verse: Skeezo]
Before the righteous I was slap boxing with lifers
Doing pull ups in the yard With da gods in the cypher
Build with Osiris And dropped gems
So heavy its priceless You moving like us
A Cookie cutter of illest writer's
But You a biter like 97 my ears on fire

[Hook: Skeezo]
Napoleon & skeezo Like clockwork

[Hook: Napoleon Da Legend]
Step in the square Get your mic broke And feelings hurt

[Hook: Skeezo]
Pursue the passion With the rapping Now let’s get it cracking
What they talking We been walking So we bring the action

[verse: Skeezo]
The sharpest dagger Wit the swag of a pastor
Poker face stay straight See i move like a master
Spray the place Beat laced We some actual rappers
You an actual actor Acting like you a trapper

[verse: Napoleon Da Legend]
Regardless you just a corny recording artist we just corner the market
Bookers ain’t calling you they calling you garbage
Polly like Gorbachef handling beef like Stroganoff
Fly to Bogota while you screaming the most you can get close
But no cigar you overloading bars trying to act lyrical
Shit is laughable they love you first as soon as you pass em
That’s when they mad at you always been a hustler
You always been a buster anything I ever utter’s better
Than what you can muster

[verse: Skeezo]
Certified line's Hook sinker
Roll with sharp thinkers The bait heavy like steak
Chase the beef get laid to sleep your shorty on my meat
No pardon how i speak I’m from the street
Hard for me to be discrete While you sucking like leech

[verse: Napoleon Da Legend]
For some likes on the “Book” like stripper chicks
I make em melt from getting too close to the son (sun) like Icarus
I’m on some different shit building with knowledge wisdom and wealth
Why ask another man if you can just get it yourself… nah mean

[hook: Skeezo & Napoleon Da Legend]
Track Name: Life of a Champion
“I failed”
“Good, now go fail again”

[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
High risk majestic high def leopard
Smuggling this contraband Pyrex methods
Who does it better? That question was rhetorical the oracle
Display great testicule fortitude
Anti-political star 5 general
Living life at a high intensity interval
Pinnacle pen game you figure my end game is splendid
Like a happy ending with 10 dames I bend frames
And shatter backs matter of fact don’t chatter back
My anatomy adapts to the habitat
Honor code of samurai not a man alive
Can withstand the firepower when this man’s hammer fires
Can’t deny it I’m Len Bias in his prime I’m the future
Like Nostradamus’ mind don’t identify with clichés
And stereotypes I introduce your preconceptions to
A burial site and get em like
You’ll never come back the same like brains after years
Of chewing aspartame plaster my name in every hood
Corner or block and when it drops the street’s will be absorbing the shock
Corporate or not disregard it we never miss our target
Trying to do the most while Obama is still in office
Pharaohgam Don Buju Banton brand new shit
Sick on the loop we call it Lupus

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
It’s a tough maze stuck in a rough place
Corrupt state get it no matter what till they ship us upstate
Up late frustrated staring at a struggle plate I hate to hustle
And wait I rather cut the cake/ suffocate suckers stay up in your face
They play a role slaves to the dough must stay focused must stay composed
The age old story is told your brain’s controlled the state patrols
Hard to stay away from trolls players fold the game is sold that’s the player’s code
The face is cold front of the mirror staring at your soul paranoid
Distant the devil whispers sadistic unfiltered wisdoms got you listening
Persistent pain instant fame leads to shame fatigued brain intrigued no sleep for days
No easy way out laid out you played out night crawlers should have stayed in the house
But you stayed out
Track Name: Mocha
[Verse: Napoleon Da Legend]
Macking like Ray Liotta kissing on her Areola Vera Wane odor
Serenading her fallopian take a step back the way you built
My god you can shoot me with anesthetics I would still get hard
No holds barred ain’t no location that’s too sacred let’s do it
In a pyramid Cleo let’s get naked middle of the flight bathroom
Rendez-vous keep it down man if they catch us I’m a be on the news
Can’t even be around you you gonna get me locked up
Get my rocks off with my socks on you got me stuck
Porn style you a star never waste a drop
Feeling like the bed about to shatter when your waste drop
Stop praying ma sexy face painting like a Geisha
Your body went into convulsions like you entered labor
You’re a freak by nature top of that a freak of nature
We can go deep and later sip tea with Echinacea
We the perfect match sexual acrobats on yoga mats
Held ya in the pose of a cobra while I was stroking that
Orgasm orchestra loving you mocha tone love
My wood posted up in your vagina like what’s up
On a balcony without a care let’s let em watch
Propped you on a chair slowly in and out of your twat
Got me bugging thoughts of making babies enter my head
That’s the sex talking think I gotta censor myself
Shit… you got me going too far baby
Track Name: Pale Horse
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
This that ignorant intelligent
That straight illiterate but u can tell I read a bit
Hey yo militant and illegitimate
That inconsiderate / disrespectful etiquette
Filthy! make sure it’s wet before u finger it
Do the knowledge on the knowledge when u filter it
Is your attention span short? got u listening
This ain't no radio song there's no resemblance
Catch a timberland boot time to repent again
U know that cash rules it's all about the Benjamin
Break that dough out ya wallet it's time to spend again
Tell a friend to tell a friend hey to it’s him again
If u can count from 1 to 10 u know what's up then
We all we got against the one percent

[Chorus x 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
The house is white the horse is pale
industry is corporate the culture failed
They hate us for us it's either broke or jail
Auctioning us off with our soul for sale

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
Rebel without a cause X you out without a thought
Power off pull the plug and choke you with the power cord
You a day late and dollar short
You rather talk I rather blaze it with Molotov
I'm a scholar boss with a BLUE collar walk
Publishing / looking about / what a Bugatti cost
Politics / got that president Mugabe talk
She got a body wanna digging in her like volleyball
U acting hard inside party with ya bodyguard
With a battery pack on ya back when u writing bars
U a dub not a thug fuck a sub diss
Sucka for a piece of ass we heard u fall in love quick
On the web always crying on the timelines
Spectating criticizing from the sidelines
I spit cyanide sitting in a high rise
Hind side is 20 / 20 should have used your mind's eye
Track Name: Napoleon Da Legend ft. ProducHer Beats - Really Hatin'
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
Wooden African chain check the stat behind the name
Student of the game like Jay when he sat behind Kane
Max out the game then I’m a stretch it even further
Bodies falling everywhere they tried arresting me for murder
Product of my environment nah this not the norm
Shows that sell out in a day lines around the block form
Competitors wanna diss but I’m a pray to God for em
Just landed from Stockholm dummy don’t get your spot stormed
Black Ops style my skin is thick like crocodile it’s lopsided
Like Kat Williams boxing verse a child plus I’m versatile
Was unknown they thirst for me now
And when it comes to chicks personally I like em wild
That’s a better fit cause what is a friend without the benefits?
Tell em to send a check I’m just warming up my pen a bit
What yall sweating is cute I deal with absolutes
Either it’s dope or it’s trash Ciroc or Absolute it’s taste
Cheddar talks chatter is waste don’t even judge just observe
Peep the pattern and wait often I felt out of place my barometer
Shakes around snakes and say the truth in Hypocrisy’s face
In this business of entertainment the majority’s fake
I had to navigate teach myself how to be great
I knew how to rhyme had to learn how to get cake
And this is for the record I had to set the record straight

[Hook: ProducHer Beats]
First they laugh then they throw shade
After that they doubt then they start to hate
Then they start to see all the moves that you make
Then everybody feel it then they really hatin’

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
This ain’t the big mansion big car and money rap
But I find it funny that people don’t respect unless the money stack
So it shouldn’t surprise you to see me push a Mazzi
And dump this model just because she overcooked the broccoli
Someday they’ll write a book about me the story goes
Po came and rewrote history with his flow
Then he escaped from his exile enemies got x’ed out
Kicked my ex out for collab pull your checks out
On my next route who’s the next slouch to joust?
Ready to let out I’m a make it wet in a drought
Without a shadow of a doubt chicks straddle me on the couch
No babies kid I pull out and splash it in her mouth
I like it classic my brain’s being studied by Psychiatrics
When it comes to rap got the psyche of an addict
Nike Airmax I used to wear that and swear that I was the flyest
But for real to myself I was lying always saw myself as a lion
And aligning myself with only the stars like the belt of Orion
There was times where I felt I was dying but I survived
Contradictory my name is the Legend but I’m alive
Every thought has an inception and every rule has an exception
When you talk about the greatest never rule out the Legend
I just outgrew perfection that shit was getting old
We don’t speak the same language go cop Rosetta Stone

Track Name: Give Thanks
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
I'm so thankful for everything I'm thankful I'm alive
I keep repeating to myself I'm thankful I'm alive
I'm thankful for my eyes I'm thankful for my legs
For my ears for my heart for my kidneys for my health
I'm thankful for my friends thankful for my fans
Thankful for this love and I'm thankful for this land
I'm thankful for my drive and I thank all these producers
To my life for inspiration and I'm thankful for the bruises
Thankful for the challenges the obstacles and setbacks
Got to places in my life thought was impossible to get at
Thankful for my mom rest in peace dad my queen and my sister
Disappointment made my rhyme scheme richer
Thankful for the sun cold weather and the hot
Thankful to have a purpose now I'm tethering the knot
Thankful for the jewels Ron Williams and doc's gym
Thankful for the struggle and days I was feeling boxed in
Thankful for the pain the asthma my short stature
I'm thankful for my stutter step I can still blow passed ya
Thankful for clean water I'm thankful for the books
Thankful to artist for these fly verses and hooks
Thankful for my feet thankful for these block I walked
Thankful for the fights thankful for the stitches I caught
Thankful for these stages and the sound man who fix the mic
And give thanks for social media when I get a like
Give thanks to oxygen and all the toxins I purge
And this anxiety I cope by getting lost in the words
Give thanks

[Hook: Napoleon Da Legend]
Today I wanna give thanks
It’s important to give thanks

[Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
To ya Ls and ya Ws
Going thru hell heavens in front of u still
Only death gives meaning to life like the story Christ
We rose victorious from glorious fights give thanks
To the sun moon and stars / who'd a thought
That through the darkness we would manage finding light thru the fog
Give thanks to that plate of food we ate thru we grateful faithful thru these hard times we made it thru
Track Name: The System
[Verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
It’s the maniacal obnoxious Messiah with the knowledge
You lame probably mocking ya like Galifianakis
My gallery is stocked I’m losing calories to rock
I’m the bad seed the last to speak the last to leave the block
I’m the last of a dying breed more bodies than a Chinese cemetery
I’m legendary with these rhyme scheme
Fled the city with eleven bitties they say I’m clever witty from the
Third world where some’ll sell a kidney
To trade places play the game of life with poker faces disconnect they
Shoulder blades your show looks like it’s overrated
Paranoid be thinking everything is orchestrated
Met Pharaohe Monch he only talk when shit is sports related
Incorporate a bar praise Allah I’ll pray tomorrow
I got your money son relax I’m a pay tomorrow
Garcia Vegas Gone to Vegas knew the God is major
You can stand right next to the man talent is not contagious
Confrontational slang my conversation’s banging
The bars cost gotta pay for those man with both hands
Behind my back without a note pad
I toe tag an adversary here you go hold that

[Hook: G.U.R.U]
Am I the target for destruction and is it the system and total corruption
I can’t work at a fast food joint I got some talent
So don’t you get my point?

[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

The system in the America was never built for black people

[Hook: G.U.R.U]
Track Name: It's Your World
[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
