I'm showing my skills
I know we obsessed with making these bills
I'm keeping it real, How do we go about making a bill?
I think I'm goin go to the government
Tell'em the truth, we just not lovin it
We need positions of power in place, Let's come together, Let's form a covenant
Let's make a way today, before we just fade away
Let's cover all of the angles, talking like A to Z
Let's get together, so we can do better, for those that paved the way
Life is about all the choices you make, It's really about, the games we play
Imma lay back in the cut, seeing what's up, seeing what moves to make
I can just handle enough, never to tough, What's in the news today?
People be following fluff, all of it's bluff, They be confusing me
Tryna get us in a rush, buy all this stuff, These devils are using me....

Pledge allegiance? Is this the allegiance you pledge?
I pay no mind to anything that he says...
So far, what he's said has led to people dead..
I wonder what's going on in these peoples heads...
I'll starve b4 I ingest a spoonful of what these people fed...
THERE'S PEOPLE DEAD...and though I want to blame him...
We're past the point of calling out & naming..
No doubt, he's helped create the environment they're raised in...
Built walls, kept kids caged in...
It's a shame thing, he seems to have none of that...
If we had an option to vote again, I'd run it back..
But I'm done with that, I'm sending love & blessings to the families involved
I hope one day the human race can evolve...
But maybe I'm a dreamer
Love is the ultimate power, the ultimate redeemer
I just hope we all realize it, b4 we leave here...

Day Aftermath..

We rose from our sleep, there's only certain goals we should keep
The earth shall be ruled by the meek
That washing is deep, from the hair to the clothes, to the speech
To the image that you see on that screen
It's vivid, that dream, juss 2 live as black men
To break out of the box, when they want us boxed in
And I ain't knockin, whatever you do 2 hustle
Gotta always take care of the ones that say that they luv you
But life is just a struggle, an everyday thang
To make it through the struggle, that's an everyday pain
So I remain sane, as I make my game plan
To figure out a way up out the Matrix
I pray faithfully, Hoping God don't ignore me
Standing at my altar, so to God be the glory
I wish I could describe how I authored this story
But I rather just submit, and let God speak for me...

Play No Games

I heard it's hard in these streets, they play with hearts like strings
Stop at the light, I feel tight, when the boulevard King
Martin Luther, don't let this world pollute ya
Bring up your past so much, it dilute your future
Man I know about the ills and the twists and turns
Experience the best teacher, better sit and learn
Time is slowly running out, time to get concerned
If you don't take heed, then you'll crash and burn
Life is earned, either through work or respect
Roll up your sleeves and work up a sweat
Yes, know that you blessed
And let God just order your steps
Move forward, let go of regrets
Get control of your stress
All the pain's goin come to a halt
But deep down still think it's your fault
Naw..yo..you gotta learn to let go quick
Don't let it play with your vibe or mess up your gift
The time is now, whatchu talkin bout that you goin quit?
Naw...this ain't the time for that to enter your mind
Cuz weakness is just a sign, that we don't take into too kind
Sitting back and recline and thinking back into time
Till you get in your mind, that you were destined to shine
Moving fast and go forward, never pressing rewind
Steady climb, to the top of your journey, till you lay in a hospital gurney..

Suffering

This is a song I did for my record label. I wrote and performed the rap part....

Home Tonight

-VERSE 1-

I really feel you left me out
Why you mad? What could you be stressing bout?
Without a doubt, you the one with all the clout
Now you wanna take disagreements up out the house
I'm about, to simmer down a lil bit
I'm no fool, I ain't nobodies idiot
It's hideous, the things you did, since we were kids
In the pantry, in the closet, is where you hid
Then you slid, away for the summer
Moved far away and changed your number
Left to reminisce, on those days we slumbered
Moved to present day, and you haven't changed none ah
Your adolescent ways, kinda make me wonder
If you'll ever change or ever stray from the
Person you became, a reflection of your mother
It's hard to change a person, that's one thing I discovered
I could hold your hand, it's up to you if you recover
Therapy could help, all the truth that they uncover
Thinking to myself, does this make you smothered?
I think I'm just goin have to say a prayer for you brotha
To show you that I really do care for you brotha
And I hope that you really are aware that I love ya

-CHORUS- Repeat 3X

Is this real life? Or just a real dream?
When I go to sleep, keep thinking that I see things
When I wake up in the morning I can hear screams
Got me questioning myself, if it's the real me

-VERSE 2-

Dayum, where did all the time go?
The beats playing, but where did all my rhymes go?
Writers block got me thinking that my mind's slow
Matter fact, what the hell i rhyme for?
For a lane? For the fame?
For the people, to recognize my name?
It's such a shame the way we play these silly games
I feel the pain cuz it's messing with my brain
All those days that I sat up in the rain
Talking to myself, tryna figure out this game
Writing down my goals, tryna figure out my aim
Thinking to myself could I really be insane
It's hard to attain all the levels that we wanted
If I could be point blank downright honest
I'm hoping one day I can realize my promise
And take back the reins and do things that I wanted
Yet I know, that's not always how the story go
Gotta go thru a maze, before you reach glory road
Then you sit back amazed, once the whole story's told...

Real Friends

-She like the confidence, that I exhibit
-They tried putting me down dawg, but I ain't with it
-Cuz I am gifted, and I am blessed
-Take a deep breath, whenever I am stressed
-And I confess, had a lot of tests
-Passed em all, bounce back like Basketball
-And I'm standing tall, never losing faith
-Cuz life is what you make it, go ahead and choose your fate
-On the road to great, depending on the road you take
-I mean it's no mistake, I made it, it was worth the wait
-The ones that hide their face, those the ones that's first to hate
-I made it to the top, they mad cuz they cannot relate

-HOOK-

Cuz it's like that, you know it's like that
When times get tough, you gotta fight back
No matter the pain, stay on the right track
And forever remain just on your life path

Like That

-If you want the honest truth, I think this world anointed you
-Cuz everything that moves, probably was born in you
-If they ask me what is God, I'm gonna always say it's you
-Cuz you the type of blessing making all my dreams come true
-Your divine inner essence always throws me for a loop
-I'm just tryna figure out how you fine woman do
- I'm inclined to recline and align with the truth
-Ain't no time to deny cuz your shine is the proof
-You make a better man of me, acting like a muse
-Got me jumping up on Oprah couch, like I'm Tom Cruise
-Please don't get in twisted, don't you misconstrue the news
-If you made it up to me, and it wasn't up to you
-The world as we know it would obey your every move
-Cuz there's something about you aura, and exception to the rule

-HOOK-

-There's something bout your aura, an exception to the rule
-They ain't messing with your essence it's a blessing that you cool
-The message that I'm stressing, wasn't lessons in the school
-So I'm hoping that this message serves as blessings for these fools

Exception 2 the Rule
