Track Name: You'll Never Take Me Alive
You’ll Never Take Me Alive

and where I’m at is on another level
so high up the locals never heard of devils
they say my songs are the chants of the rebels
and that one day the voice of many make the one tremble
so many souls die without a legacy
let alone me who wants to die being legendary
i will take it to the levy watch it break the water bury
carry out survivors and rivers run with capillaries
I’m looking to do more than create a first impression
truthfully this music is therapy for my depression
from all the loss all the hardships we be facing
get it out with one mic and a tape in the basement
if its hate you’re emancipating
be aware of your complacence
I’ve seen karma too much to know it aint my imagination
im chasing my dream you can achieve yours
I’m cool with my girl you can keep your whores
Hors d’oeuvres for the amateurs i be on a diet
get some rest in the morning we gonna grind or die trying

My Mission aint classified
to gain access where i was denied
forget pride this is a ride or die state of mind
i do it for trayvon’s life and if not yeezus then i’ll fight
i aint about biting no tyson, something aint mentally right
as if the lights went out, now I’m just chillin' under halogens
they got lights in the air, more outside? well then send ‘em in
so everybody know who we are talking bout 1 win
time is right and so is this atmosphere so lets begin

I’m lyrically painting pictures with a sick sense of persistence
its in the details where the devil dictates his business
so it’s crucial that you’re here, in dress code to bare the witness
the sight of the blind man begging for forgiveness
that feeling cringes inside us like a stomach filled with leeches
and death coming for all us so fuck ya’ll riches
im in battle swinging while ripping open my stitches
you can burned or buried down 72 inches

no no no no, no no no no, no no no no, no no no no...
No, you aint taking me nigga nah
you’ll never take me alive x2
No, you aint taking me, or imma kill you first
you’ll never take me alive x2
Track Name: Camouflauge
Camouflage

what do you say when the earth gets further and further away…
what do you say when the earth gets further and further away…

no such thing as hibernation for a beast like me
got miles of forest to scout before i sleep
my search engine will cease when i’ve cleansed the land of meat
specifically the taste that once tried defying me
taxidermy experts hire extra interns to classify
exactly which family of vertebrae i coincide
like coats of pride buttoned up tight such is my hide
it’ll take more than your life to try to excavate mine
Ursa Major, Slave to a powerful love’s labor
turned for creating anger when she only offered favors
thats where i detour - see I’m the anger but with focus
i got more goals than most except most would never notice
i’ll politely decline when you tell me my life was chosen
i been down roads that offered closure to eyes wide open
thats me hoping, you aint gotta bring action to this
cuz boy i take you out quick like you didn’t exist

what can i say i like wearing camouflage
(it keeps me warm at night)
x4

leanest black bear you ever seen so don’t fuck with me
i got the right intentions and the guidance high above me
channelling that energy from the elite who got love for me
to use it to annihilate those with a red cross on me
I’m no pawn homie, i did my homework too
now all i see is failed business plan in you
im a straight investment with returns that gone see me through
the next storm while you pretend them shits is De Ja Vu
the story so sad, Dave Ramsey said don’t feel bad
them fuckers got themselves there and I don’t need that
the steps taken by greats to make millions is just facts
so I’m reading stats back to back while doubling up my stacks
hard to picture that: Baloo wit more swagger doe
still i look dope scruffy in a tailored suit yo
of course its all mythical all this shit is visual
that don’t mean shit so don't under estimate my physical

what can i say i like wearing camouflage
(it keeps me warm at night)
x4

break down and build up to break down again
everything comes back around in the end
x4

where was i a year ago, time flies
hoping ya’ll can hear me trying combine heart and eyes
led and paper make it final, music then applies
the adhesive that we needed to get this floatin' in the sky
oh my dreams died years ago, but i found a resurrection spell
practiced till i had it but the actual didn’t go well
demons crawled inside my dreams and told me if i don’t raise hell
they’d eat what was left of a dream from the inner shell
i didn’t know what to do,
i went along with it and that devil brought me right to you
told me if you follow me he won’t make you choose
which one of us can walk away and who got more to lose
how heavy is your heart now?
oh he gone hear that heart beat without a doubt
meditate and focus constantly to slow it down
if we defy demons with silence, we can hear them howl

break down and build up to break down again
everything comes back around in the end
x4
Track Name: That New Upgrade
That New Upgrade

but at the same time I’m chilling,
breaking backs just to make a living you know i gotta kill it
when i say I’m high I’m out side the box so never mind the ceiling /
never forget this feeling if you ever forget to feel it /
high gear my path aint the same path and i’m sorry if I’m avant garde
i been keeping my guard up, i’ve sparred enough, coming up by the shipyard
good god, make a nigga miss innocence
none of this was by coincidence
the ink don’t lie I’ve been forgiven
that don’t mean i got an easy living

(say I’m gonna)
hustle your life away
(still)
makin that low ass wage
(i got)
so many bills to pay
(focus)
so i just grind and blaze
(un huh)
can’t tell me anything
(nah)
but I’m always listening
(heard it)
tryin to find a way
(how i gotta)
to get that new upgrade

i dream like this can’t be possible
for a nigga to have so many obstacles
life for me aint plausible
without those green apostles
perspective and patience both battle for lead
a role about one without both can’t succeed
i try to control my desire to need
i aint turnin to greed
so i hang glide i rise like a phoenix
shine bright everyone can it
so impressive it fills every arena
fill my hotel room with senoritas..
i got demons like everybody else
music the only real thing that helps
most of the time i be by myself
aint tryna grind like nobody else

Hustle your life away
making that low ass wage
so many bills to pay
but i just grind any blaze
can’t tell me anything
but im always listening
trying to find a way
to get that new upgrade

(i be Set to attack
Crew in the back
Know I gotta plan
I was raised like that
Everything black
When we carrying cash
Niggas try to step
But they step back fast)
x4

(say I’m gonna)
hustle your life away
(still)
makin that low ass wage
(i got)
so many bills to pay
(focus)
so i just grind and blaze
(un huh)
can’t tell me anything
(nah)
but I’m always listening
(heard it)
tryin to find a way
(how i gotta)
to get that new upgrade
Track Name: Forget Me Not
Forget Me Not

forget me not x2
Forget Me Not
cuz when i take your spot
you going wish you you knew
the name that got you forgot

It’s M.O.D.E.F.I. right?
x2
(One More Time What’d You say?, Thats what I thought you said)

Yo This mic was luke warm when it was handed over
and i aint even got hold just throw it over the shoulder
watch it light on fire while i get higher than yoda
then ill run circles round your game while drinking a soda
my motives never age, like they always getting carded
i got a naked white girl back at the apartment
sorry that last line was lil off the topic
i tend to crack jokes when i rhyme beside these comics
lets be honest, sometimes a beast just gotta eat
and if you got that grind on you just look like fresh meat
fuck your snapback - how sharp are your teeth?
the moves i make on a night are your whole fuckin week
imma digital criminal invading all the media
they couldnt classify me, try encyclopedia
ripley’s wouldn’t host me - twilight zone either
they all told me if i wanna play i pay the preacher

Forget Me Not
cuz when i take your spot
you going wish you you knew
the name that got you forgot

It’s M.O.D.E.F.I. right?
x2

god and me got a late hate relationship
he dont grant me shit but he’d save my ass from a sinking ship
then again my goal aint to get a whip
im after that life where Quentin would ask to write the script
fillin it with women wit different accents and swift kicks
soon after the RZA will put on for my mix
a vipers kiss aint as deadly as this
passion for extracting right brain thoughts to my wrist
everytime i leave the studio air is a mist
and if you aint sure why inhale for the gist
I arrived for the challenge - im staying for the win
armed with the green destiny, so lets begin
imma rebel in my own right - spilling out my thoughts
assassin to the game i aint never getting caught
i bet the openers already left the spot
yo it’s cool, they was never meant to be this hot so

Forget Me Not
cuz when i take your spot
you going wish you you knew
the name that got you forgot

It’s M.O.D.E.F.I. right?
x2
(One More Time What’d You say?, Thats what I thought you said)
Track Name: Confession
Confession

where you from will teach you how to interact
and where you at gives you practice
where i been aint pretty but its my past
im tryin ta get active
im reactive to the passive
when the ass out i try to grab it
imma chase it till she let me have it
then we gonna fuck to all your favorite classics
at the core we all so primitive
our perspective sometimes so limited
the reason why i always get lifted
im glad i did my whole view shifted
its more acidic all the shit its been mixed with
only takes a shot to get lifted off my liquid
twins beware my tongue is vicious
own a black cat aint superstitious
up until 12 i thought i was a christian
by 18 everything was different
my life was realer than high definition
high the definition

grind smoke stress release
x4

watcha want from a nigga in suburbia
I’m climbing like everybody else
had it worse years back yeah i been worse
fuck top shelf. fuck everyone else
imma rap, grind, party, rewind
I’m high all tha time and my life just fine
new creator of modified minds
so much money so little time
imma take it, one day i’ll make it
gimme the constant cash-flow fuck the greatest
title’s wasted -it holds no basis
spotlight don’t matter when the money faceless
everybody changes when they bank does
from brooklyn to boston i made bucks
the grind work off location
adapting can’t be a hesitation
i aint having that,

grind smoke stress release
x4

I’m bout to roll one and light and fuck it man no ones invited
i got that real shit that don’t give a fuck if i end up signing
heard all that talk about writing records just for attention
please take a picture of my middle finger like owe did i mention
oh did i mention my presence is lethal injection, oh did i mention.
oh did i mention, all my life growing up, i was never accepted
i made exceptions. my hesitations turned into fuel
no reservations trust don’t take me for a fool

grind smoke stress release
x4
Track Name: Intentions
Intentions

My rearview mirror holds too much pain
Hard to live with no regrets no regrets at all
I need some love to come by my way
For now I got to stand tall

I made mistakes and learn from that
The real nigga still got my back
With all the thought that I put on wax
im goin in nigga thats a fact
yeah that fact

Lines blur between right and wrong
When drink in hand meet thigh and thong
When your heartbeat control the tempo
All of a sudden love ain't so simple

My eyes get wide when I see you undress
All of my answers to your questions are yes
Allow me to help you unload all your stress
With me in the sheets till there's sweat in the bed
Let any position roll outta ya head
and i ain’t opposed to you bringing friends
we love again till you decide when
our intentions should come to an end

My rearview mirror holds too much pain
Hard to live with no regrets no regrets at all
I need some love to come by my way
For now I got to stand tall

I made mistakes and learn from that
The real nigga still got my back
With all the thought that I put on wax
im goin in nigga thats a fact
yeah thats a fact
thats a fact

Ain't nobody else when you're with me
We gonna spread our love through a galaxy
Let the deepest thoughts we have be free
Trust and respect for ya body are key

And just like a door I stay locked from the outside
Ain't about a life of giving up what I give pride
Take ya time let it sink into your mind
Meanwhile the sex on rewind
speechless yo you got that fear less ness
goddess in the night type appearance
and those eyes giving me that clearance
so if you wanna do it lemme hear it
Track Name: Meditate
Meditate

one blunt to relax
meditate wit the beats on wax
step to this imma counteract
blur your view just like a cataract

overly obsessed with this context that i process
chasing the meaning of levels of different conscience
slipping outta consciousness, an offering so honest
my flow is hydroponics, and yeah i be on it
If it aint hit me like a brick its back
to the drawing board adapt and react
ambition never learned to retract
specially with the drivers seat way back

one blunt to relax
meditate wit the beats on wax

step to this imma counteract
like you woke up in the trunk of a cadillac
with a battle axe firmly attached
to your sack and the ride about to crash
talk about impact /
forget ya little imp act
i got a grim past
nothing gonna change that

i meditate to do everything i can
everything i can
everything i can
i meditate everyday to get it right
but i turn out the lights
my bad side comes to life
by fire of the lighter smoking trees to get high
getting in tight until you fuckin all night
i meditate to do everything i can
every everything i can
every everything i can

At the core I'm a Taurus
Gorgeous going cordless
Like I forged this in the forest
Then I burned a healthy portion
Gypsies miss my fortune
Mos def like Owens Corning
My reign don't end when it's pouring
Niggas sleep I catch 'em snoring
Hardcore it's what I live for
My grind belongs in marinecore
When haters call I hit ignore
Industry filled with trap doors
Hope you don't fall through
I bounced back like angry kangaroo
Yeah I'm sick like a stomach flu
But I kick it like I'm so tae kwon do
Oops I mean kwon do
I'll split ya wig with a compound bow
Cops never look long for a John Doe
My status quo is straight c.e.o
Lyrical hammer throw
Got the bitches wiggling from head to toe
My life story worthy of a golden globe
modern day Henry David Thoreau
Vincent Van Gogh - everytime I blow that weed smoke
My eyes gotta lay low
Otherwise I just feel the flow
Like that hoes throat from a week ago
A gift bestowed to me down below
you don’t even know
that ass up pre and post show

i meditate to do everything i can
everything i can
everything i can
i meditate everyday to get it right
but i turn out the lights
my bad side comes to life
by fire of the lighter smoking trees to get high
getting in tight until you fuckin all night
i meditate to do everything i can
every everything i can
every everything i can

one blunt to relax
meditate with the beats on wax
by fire of the lighter smoking trees to get high
getting in tight until you fuckin all night
one blunt to relax
getting in tight until you fuckin all night
meditate with the beats on wax
by fire of the lighter smoking trees to get high
getting in tight until you fuckin all night
i meditate to do everything i can
everything i can every everything i can
