Track Name: Guilty ft. DJ Swab
[Intro - Napoleon Da Legend]
I admit it I did it
Guilty as charged
The return of Pharaohgamo, just like the wise men predicted

[Verse 1 - Napoleon Da Legend]
Staring at Armageddon ride a camel thru the desert
And execute the code for the nukes in a text message
Witness the next level, pecs, metal "x" devils
"S" on my chest S.O.S., let's the rest settle
My whole mentality's Soweto I'm Thomas Sankara
Dominant don, you can catch Pharaohgamo in Ghana
Dolce Gabanna, Qaddafi lamping in Abu Dabi
I bag a hottie then I bend up her body Pilate
Loddi Doddi the slickest ruler, Biakabutuka
Monogamous mover, Picasso I pop ya medulla
Spark a cigar up in Cuba and never sweating nothing
Part of the perks, barter a verse for ya pension money
And my attention funny this shit can get boring fast
Copped a car, brought it back then I'm back with my touring ass
Out for the glory only like Spartans, marvelous artist
I'm modest told y'all I was on it I'm a keep my promise

[Chorus - Cuts by DJ Swab]
Guilty that's how I stay filthy
Guilty of it all
I ain't denying it was me
We all guilty admit it

[Verse 2 - Napoleon Da Legend]
Prophecy fulfilling, the prophet exceed the limit
"Trust the process" philosophy just to be specific
I'm a be prolific, what you speak is what I'm living
Politicking and cheffing up inside the kitchen
Nutritious artifacts
Where else you find an artist that will feed the masses?
My words alone reverse a heart attack
Drug dealer carter chat, Magna Carta rap
Wild victorious but place my name, next to where the martyrs at
Peep how I play this, I'm shaking the snakes like Petyr Baelish
Told by the elders I got what it takes to be the greatest
It's with a heavy heart my semi spark you ready paul?
I shoot, make my adversary catch bullets like Gary Clark
That's a flashback, scratch that I tackle backlash
Everything you saying you attract that
Who you see on the horizon? I'm epitomizing
Spit a fly line turn it to a bank deposit

[outro - Martin Luther King]
In the process of reaching our rightful place
We must be guilty of wrongful deeds
Track Name: Confucius
[Napoleon Da Legend verse 1]
Your algorithm off Po’s like Malcom riffing off
Beyond the slick talking got my trigger finger clicking off
Most of us live insecure trynna impress our friends and all
It’s an intrinsic flaw like me binging on alcohol
Steriods gonna shrink ya balls everything to get an edge
Cause life can do you dirty like tap water in Bangladesh
My slang a threat to the establishment and wealth
Why would I want to get put on? when I’m establishing myself
Took a stab at it myself I learn the ropes
like Earl the Goat
Every verse personal I got a word perfect flow
It’s the Proverbial introspective Napoleon perspective
Holy chilling in Tibet with felonious connections
Live show perfection then Fallopian is stretching
With a goal to totally destroy Colonial perceptions
Life is like a rodeo we rolling with the punches
We soaking up the lessons then we grow it with abundance

[Napoleon Da Legend chorus x2]
Mind of Confucius killing the illusions
Heal ya with some organic food instead of pills you using
medicated music for the dedicated user
the minds the only thing that separates us from the future

[Napoleon Da Legend verse 2]
My scheme are Fibonacci not for feeble minds or Nazis
Illuminati bars for evil doers trynna to stop me
Some many watche watche hibachi I spit it choppy
They try to copy so I switch it up can never stop me
Trafficking this dope for all my kinfolk
Rest In Peace to Kimbo it’s not simple living sinful
Staring at my window seeing struggle on the face expressions
Reminding me to stay present cause everyday’s a blessing
Some days is overwhelming break it up in increments
Ya body’s just instrument you use to make ya vision live
I use my time like it’s a prison bid never say I wish I did cause everything I did I wished
That’s the Jedi mind trick, paint my world like it’s a Lucas film
My goal I target then I shoot kill bounce and let the rumors spill
Akuma with the skill since I was a juvenil...
Thru the years the movement built can tell from how the music feel
Track Name: Slash
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
Infinite respect slash beat ya gimmicks to death The crowd claps before i finish a breath the benefactor
Slash been a vet slash young max the benefit
Slash been a threat slash beat ya to ya deficit
Slash better than slash ya favorite rapper
Slash doing major damages spray the cannon
Slash Peyton manning
Bullet pass peep the bulletin slash Pulitzer
Slash did it To the fullest never what I could have done
Slash epic Abode Flash slash edit
Slash ghostwriter slash you need add me to the credits
Slash I said it was before slash don't worry kid its paid for
Slash I cook that fire but the line stay raw
Slash grenade slash one man army brigade
Slash green beret no doubt I'd still smash Lisa Ray
Slash piece of cake slash automatic
Slash asthmatic slash half these rappers is ass backwards
Slash Ghengis slash Alexander slash candor
Slash all the slander slash opposite of propaganda
Slash champion slash I shit bangers in my sleep
Kenny Anderson slash I be handing em a seat
Slash Petrovic slash rudeness mixed with etiquette
Slash player president and all the exceteras
Slash multi million dollar settlement slash Benjamin
Slash symbol of hope for those in tenements it's Po yall

Napoleon Da Legend [verse 2]
The black sheep they couldn't black ball Slash hacksaw
Rap sport shooting lay ups from the half court
Slash more slash gravity defyer
Too savvy for a liar throw a salad in the fryer
Underground rapper but might see me with Khaled on a flyer
Survive zombie apocalypse throw dollars in the fire
Slash hired for verses over ballads with Mariah
Slash rapid fire degenerate slash Messiah
Slash pariah cause riots when I'm quiet
Self centered with a short temper when I'm tired
Slash biased slash Demi-God Hercules
33rd degree slash seminars don't work for me
Slash purpose on this earths surface slash word perfect
Make these birds nervous since the day they first heard it
Slash closest to God the man next to Buddha
Executioner Lex Luger barracuda on a scooter
Slash imperial majesty dressed casually
Talk shit congratulations u the next casualty
Finesse happily slash never rapping haphazardly
Not The path for me my soldier clash with cavalry
Slash born militant passport filling up
Blast off a villain slash 24 cylinders
Slash agitator gift of gab elaborator
Slash Jada to the Kiss when he kills a collaborator
Track Name: Shinobi ft. DJ Akil
[verse 1: Napoleon Da Legend]
Dominique windmills wind chill I been real
Fish scale rocket Ishmael cartilage spill
Rappers with androgynous builds we don’t feel at
Question where the skill at you can catch me where the real at
Chill at Chinese restaurants upper echelon renaissance in the Pentagon with some Decepticons
Looking for energon cubes stressing like John Q
That’s fondue push ya album back like Lebron’s due
Take it back to '92, '86 laying up crazy chicks
Baby momma crib smelling like baby shit
Bathing Ape the latest kicks dictatorship dick slay the chick
Up late eating mad potato chips
The devil not of afraid of it I level up a rebel what? You peddle drugs? While the government try to embezzle us?
The surrogate prepared for this Charismatic gentleman
Pharaohgamo lit we don’t negotiate with terrorists
Flatbush and Farragut black foot flash drive
WiFi get rich or die trying half a dollar
These folks still mad Obama How u live?
Show me what u did bad karma fucker this is what u get
Berlusconi burn slowly shinobi should know me
Red black Sauconi don’t talk about it show me
James Toney sugar Shane Mosley the game soaked me
Ladies at the venue play me closely

[Chorus: scratches by DJ Akil]
Napoleon Da Legend
Later on right, cause I'm a winner
Drop emcees like car collapse 'blawww!'
Rap legend, "yea! son!"
Living in the ghetto tryna get the hell out x2

[verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend]
This ain’t melodic illogical episodic, exotic
Doing Pilates with a Hot chick hard to process
Toxic, hit the block quick Pac shit talk shit
Confidence I walk with u awkward
Forklift my fork lift never pork looking like u never fought
Did some petty crimes but I was never caught
Fuck all metaphors and rhyme schemes I swipe screens and like memes with my wifey chilling eating ice cream
You trying hard to sound hard you sound fraud
I’m vanguard took the hand off and ran off
Randolph, Mortimer, Nautica sort of an extortionist
Louis Roderrer cast spells like a sorcerer
Resourceful expertise extra P i plead allegiance to no flag
I’m a nomad I left the region
Battered up and flesh bleeding neck leaking barely breathing
Rest In Peace to Heavy Dee I’m very genius
