Truth Bomb.. yo, those struggle ain’t real.. they’re just self imposed ills your parents pay your bills and still heat up your meals a grown man brat that just wants to rap.. And hustle pyramid schemes Instead of square deals... hand over fist, spreading fake love to strangers, while your homies feel dissed.. cry me a river with them suicide memos and woe is me levels you’ve compromised your gift on a monetized grift.. False idols on the internet theres nothings sacred or innocent the current state feels inclement bullshit self promoting on the internet your downfall is imminent you gotta lick you wounds, when you got some skin in it Reveal your little stunt front, you dumb fucks are ignorant... These wack busters are lackluster and impotent Plus they all move insignificant.. Ulterior motives get exposed in an instance Suckers MCs best keep they distance Alternative perspective you can’t contend with.. Tell me that I’m wrong, Tell me that I’m wrong I’ll reply with a truth bomb! Smoke and mirrors and shattered egos Confessions of killer the necessary evil Mandatory stories of the ill category Heaven, hell or purgatory Stop avoiding, pick your poison Six million ways to die those are your choices feel me like the baseline no time to waste rhymes so we gotta be vigilant Lock Step Diligent Militant and steady killing shit... we share humble beginnings but that’s about the end of it... Our journeys ain’t equivalent So quit your sniveling there ain’t no conspiracy so adjust your voice Like a puppet or ventriloquist Systematic oppressions the way that living it.. Listen to this audio try to stop skipping it play it back and realize victim of your own demise that struggle ain’t real.. it’s reel to reel revealing it.. Ulterior motives get exposed in an instance Suckers MCs better keep some distance Alternative perspective you just can’t contend with.. Tell me that I’m wrong, Tell me that I’m wrong I’ll reply with a truth bomb!

Shells on the Ground For every vantage point, there's a counter blind spot for the damage and plot the ugly truths inconvenient harsh reality, expected tragedy and impending fate with the doomsday mechanics Condescending saint don't fear or panic, don’t fear or panic It's the sign of the times in your daily feed Log in for your fix and stay up to speed Politics, and religion with the misinformation and a strange arrangement unfollow, unplug and switch the station Clear some head space to debug and reprogram with rhyme and reason Everyone indulges and divulges Dr. Strange love at war with ourselves to the juxtaposition and project your ambitions Stop, look, and listen to protect your interests Image, and perception, snapshot allusions Create the awe, draw your conclusions.. We're too real for the fake never handshake a damn snake... yo, we excel, huh, I excel.. yo, we XL, huh, I’m XL yo, we inhale, huh, then exhale!!! then exhale!!! then exhale!!! yo, we excel, huh, I excel.. yo, we XL, huh, I’m XL yo, we inhale, huh, then exhale!!! then exhale!!! then exhale!!! it’s all love, one take.. never try to hate what you can't debate so let the bullets fly with the shells on the ground As the foolish lie on a road hell bound Diluted with the truth, manufactured drought Convoluted views and unanswered doubts Polluted the skies, fluoride in the water... trends in the news and contaminated food the good news that we don’t lose faith Self preservation for the human race We live and we learn or whatever it takes. Sacrifice is part of life, that some don't know and just can't relate! the worse case scenario.. Well, you can't escape what you can't erase So look to validate the heart jump skips and palpitates pounding the base the ground it shakes the sounds that it breaks the sounds that it breaks yo, we excel, huh, I excel.. yo, we XL, huh, I’m XL yo, we inhale, huh, then exhale!!! then exhale!!! then exhale!!! yo, we excel, huh, I excel.. yo, we XL, huh, I’m XL yo, we inhale, huh, then exhale!!! then exhale!!! then exhale!!!

Love Don’t Die (The Revival) 
 Her design is so flawless.. She got the mind of a goddess... she make a bad man honest... And that’s a good mans promise... one day we’ll get beyond this.. enjoy what we deserve... A love so preserved... so beautifully absurd... she got me mean mug grinning... now I’m head bugged tripping... wet love dripping.. every day is so real... and every week gets deep.... imagine a lifespan! Girl don’t sleep!!! tell the time & tell me the place show me the sign cos time I don’t got to waste... I’m a sucker for you space... committed to your pace... Well, you satisfy my thirst... and salvage what I’m worth... and you justify my case... cuz you’re more than just an ace! so warm & so safe... yeah restores my faith... the beat to my break... when I was empty in my tank and my mind drew blanks... I was shooting from the hip now, it’s you I have to thank... I was shooting from the hip now, it’s you I have to thank...
 Well love won’t die... cuz I won’t let it... so don’t you forget it... just remember who said it... I never had to front cuz I got strong credit... so live in the moment and don’t be a tenant... own it and accept it.. it’s our time to take... it’s hard not to fake... the heartache and pain.... the distance in between is only inches away... so don’t - walkaway love won’t die if you don’t let it.... every word I meant it... all truth and no lies no secrets to hide... these feelings wide open too deep to subside... so don’t leave my side... standing on my own... stranded all alone... romance without the stone.. no chance with these clones you got the prototype chromozones to fill the void rebuild we what destroyed... replenished what diminished.. a new start without the finish... I’m a countdown the minutes for us to relive it.... a life with no limits.. no hype and no gimmicks so clearly defined a sight so vivid it’s just you and I... walking off in the distance... a storybook ending to a fantasy fairy tale.. written on the fly...content you can’t deny...

Rap to This Ugh, make em clap to this, we can make em clap to this..(c’mon c’mon) Rap to this, well we could rap this, we can make em clap to this..(uh uh awwyeah) We can rap to this, we can make em clap to this.. (c’mon c’mon) you can sideline or purvey / or survey the wordplay / while my verse slays like a curse laid! / Ugh, bird of prey when I snatch you by vertebrae / hey, someone call a nurse for the first aid / leave these bird brains with blood soaked- shirt stains / curled up like a mermaid / so easy to persuade / once I get my terms laid / Gel Roc and Doc Lewd / so throwback Thursday / all up in the cut like a skirt steak / we shirk fake and murk snakes / with these curt takes / then put em in the dirt / and shake em up like an earth quake / to show’m how the turf taste / curb cakes with burnt paste / 3rd Base with the Gas Face / like an MC Search party / somebody! anybody! say Grace / in the first place / cos we can’t relate! Nah, we can’t relate! Ugh, make em clap to this, we can make em clap to this..(c’mon c’mon) Rap to this, well we could rap this, we came make em clap to this.. Aye yo, aye yo.. lightening strikes when we on this mic thunder claps when the beats this hype We’re spitting gutter raps, from the sewer pipes Yo the calm before the storm, it’s brewing just right fire in the sky and we’re high as a kite hard as hail hits ground, just how ya like.. We never failed the town and tonight’s not the night! We came to get down with no invites So, step out the way and watch us ignite! Coast to coast some kind of rappers delight So, suckers take note or were taken your stripes Cold crushing your hopes when we’re throwing these strikes! (Doc Lewd) This shit is so good, I hit it, had to take my shirt off Murder type of style, that ya prolly never heard of Non-stop, bottom to top, like low hurdles Im’a hop, like chalk on the block, I’m not nervous Dirty job, do it in my trash man green You know the scheme, is necessary, by any means I Be Thousand, like a stack of green singles Rifle in my hand, like Malcolm at the window Shadows play the walls, like old puppets Ya boy walked in, and then, they blow trumpets Emcees mumble and crumble, like a couple of crumpets Old school game, battleship, sunk it Pullin’ rhymes out the water, like gold nuggets Ya team just muppets, told ‘em zip it up puppet Run around gunnin’, shoulda been Jim Plunkett They way I hit the bank, I coulda been Tim Duncan

Tell Give Show Tell'em what they gotta to hear Give'em what they need to know Show'em how to keep it clear when you drop it, let it go... (Syn 228) Tell all the truth but from a slant success in circuit lyes too bright for our inferred delight the truth's superb surprise like lightning to the children ease with explanation kind the truth must Dazzle gradually or every man is blind. In spite! Of every single doubt that was ever brought against I'm still here to swing it out so you better know defense over every single obstacle I'm hip enough to hop them all it's never as impossible people are convinced the visit is a conjugal When syn is in the mix, wanna treat it like a comical until you get convinced now you feel the philosophical you die from diabolik was relying on my molecules the cadence don't quit. Taking rappers down in a permanent dirt nap the underground occurred and preferred to revert back to the love of spoken word like we did on the first raps Aiming at the soft shit, pop , burst that.. Not the boy about the bubble cuz that ass is in trouble turn them into of rubble or worse fast it hurts bad, Ravenous wolves with a hunger and thirst Pat the victims on the back but they didn't deserve that double e double I double b double fly from the few to the Phi to the foes of the phone I'm a giant on the motherfuking Beanstalk Kickin that Supreme talk what's the way I run it when I come Stunning and I'm gunnin for the number one spot, Hunting with a fundamental run of mental moxie syn 228 serving like a proxy sticking to the concrete roots like epoxy Tell'em what they gotta to hear Give'em what they need to know Show'em how to keep it clear when you drop it, let it go... (Myka 9) Spell out the proof to all the ants unless the dirt is dry Don't fright in war when people fight Somebody's hurt and dies divide and conquer buildings speak of ammunition crime The proof is battles casualty over every land in time Insight.. from everything about hoping that I'm making sense I was clearly reaching out took a mile and gave an inch without any little a typical mimic and a gimmick together very plausible present the evidence commencement common when they put you in a ditch you wanna become mannered now you're up against the rinse killing in the hospital you're urban not illogical implying how it's comical they made you one to hit! looking at these clients as you terminate work path they wonder how I heard about the murder and dirt pack for some of them'll lurk and be murkin the worst cats be wearing camouflage then they pop up at earth dance the voyeurism of edition ass is a bubble she considered hustle what works and it hurts dad vibing these fools getting hungry adverse I can remember way back when you didn't desert math Tell me why do we need trouble from enemies that we fight and defeat with the drums am i fly i'm a brother stuck in this form knocking and be fit from pumping up with people and i jump... some of them'll run up and they're gonna get socked!! common a phenomenon i'm bombing on the block g been through section 8 rolling with moxy bigger than a posse just get up off me!!! Tell'em what they gotta to hear Give'em what they need to know Show'em how to keep it clear when you drop it, let it go... Stay in pursuit to advance And not be left behind Don't live a life full of regret We only get one try... So open your eyes to see the light And swallow oneself pride... It's never too late, to heal your wounds naturally with time. Inflight! Fly on my route While fly above the rest sky writing in the clouds... while your left in suspense anything is possible it doesn't mean its probable even tho it's plausible it doesn’t make sense scared of the audible all caught up in the audio looking for a hint but you’re coming up with lint holding on to follicles minuscule the molecules your partially responsible for knowing what it meant... Put your dogs in the ground I know that you heard that Original Gel Roc google & search that YouTube, bing! then maybe refer back Dope to a fiend when it occurred that! they don't want to rumble disgruntled with rebuttals I rocket like a shuttle! tell your people to learn that living in a silo, thinking earths flat looking for asylum, they don't deserve that.. Double M Mass Men with a cap & a stem subtlety subtle lies suddenly sudden death When my kingdom comes I'm a giant so the beat drops and my feet stomp on the one.. coming & I'm gunning to put you in your plot busting off a dozen when I load another shot.. put you in the hot seat you'll never out fox me when I spit at mock speed and rock it like lockheed !!! Tell'em what they gotta to hear Give'em what they need to know Show'em how to keep it clear when you drop it, let it go...

Lord Knows Well we’ve done tried... lord knows best... Praying hands to the side We've been put to the test... And seemingly failed... yo, one more round, before the hammer hits the nail.. the hammer hits the nail.. Your life's a mess While you steady broadcast Running ya mouth, but it's all trash... Coming up short for the long pass curse when the god blast! getting burned like hot baths full of acid in the tub or the shit on the porcelain how many times must we reinforce again... you're the short end of the stick watch it all transcend... No remorse for you friend... this is true heavyweight... project blowed and mass men dope reads the caption... fuck your reaction.. We’re blessed with the game your a guest, sign your name ain’t no questions of how... I manifest and vow to hold it down / profound but suckers wanna test me in a round Unable to expound So the pressure compounds While the styles compile and astound Every king will be crowned Or jester to be clowned fate or luck falls into the footsteps wallow in them hood reps thinking it's all good when it's quiet as kept... A trail of shit, gets left behind you... Nobody likes you... except losers and lame fucks It’s one in the same they all fucking sucks... like the sign of the time So stop feeding them ducks.... hey, we put one in the brain then paint the town red with what's left of your empty ass head.... like stir of echoes served when you mettle... puppet on the strings call me gepetto... the pendulum swings I’m hella unsettled... G O D's Killing you Devils! Pause to the Rebels... extra flawed in your perils.. through ya hearts wit an arrow got you in my sights at end of the barrel Dropping insights for the shallow and the narrow... it’s a cradle to the grave dropped from the label cause you can't behave... that's a bad hand played... lacking demand on a road unpaved... off to the side, lost and estranged... I’m a beast on the beat unleashed from the cage... and you're a pet in the petting zoo... perspective's reality must’ve got ahead of you... butt of the verse, getting smoked like residue! no sense of self worth... or halfway sensible... Well we’ve done tried... lord knows best... Praying hands to the side We've been put to the test... And seemingly failed... yo, one more round, before the hammer hits the nail the hammer hits the nail.. the hammer hit the nail.. So why do we try? And waste all our time!!! Well you wanna reach one, teach one, but they just outta scope... on the borderline of dope... cos they sorta can't cope... always coming up short throw ya hands in the air with the mission to abort!!! Well who are we to judge... hate or begrudge... When intentions are good And it’s done out of love... Or at least we think.. Til, we hear ourselves speak... But we all contradict And live as hypocrites... So what's it all mean... like heaven or hell... When your intentions are well... well you know how it goes.. both the ups and downs, and how it flows.. mistakes get made and the pains still grow... like a product of environments these seeds we sew... the truths be told, life's cold as snow... from youth to adult... shit gets ill and feels difficult... everything's real and still metaphysical... Life’s lessons to learn... we're all just students... So we all guess and get burned... With room for improvement... but nobody's perfect! so stay in your lane, and serve your purpose and try and maintain before wires get crossed And you lose your signal and starts to short circuit.... ringleaders and clowns of this big top circus.... or cheerleaders and groupies doing hip hop service... so pick one that fits one and don't play victim don’t play the victim Well we’ve done tried... lord knows best... Praying hands to the side We've been put to the test... And seemingly failed... yo, one more round, before the hammer hits the nail the hammer hits the nail.. the hammer hit the nail..

Time Keepers While you're taking your time. Things around you fall in place... While you're living your life Don't always play it so safe... (Gel Roc) Just bury the hatchet Stop fronting and marry the ratchet scratch it off your bucket list and attach it to your fuck it list exquisite prerequisite ring of fire with a handful of excrement unable to bring me higher - pessimist...sweet nothings of excellence for your royal pestilence counters all intelligence countered w the sex and affectionate...emotions and logic meshed with negligence created the separatist dictating the messiness...that exists with a fist full of emptiness... a fitful temptingness... forcing you to leave an empty nest preemptively but indefinite.... Lonely and desolate solely resting on laurels over lost loved quarrels and beef - washed up like coral reef Without morals and belief for the engagement Dead floral arrangements divorced from the sacred pained tainted with toasty matrimony woe is me bank statements paid in cozy alimony payments... While you're taking your time. Things around you fall in place... While you're living your life Don't always play it so safe... (Self Jupiter) Now this style is in demand in the year two zero zero zero tolerance ordinance 10 motars war of words blow a hole the size of a destroyers turret Oh you trying to kick some knowledge Bureau no breno ryhmers euro step into my office The broom closet defies logic have a piece of licorice from the mentalist chew as long as you want The view comes with a croissant & a churro dont act non chalant you cunt my time is valuable it's a heirloom mine if I can somehow turn back the witching hour in which my hairline could bloom but you'll never find me upset I'm too consumed With these beautiful ladies that love me long time At the meeting of minds I'll be seated and reclined eating from a vine and reading from a book you crook! While you're taking your time. Things around you fall in place... While you're living your life Don't always play it so safe. (RadioInactive) Hardware store cashier Ash in a beer Chola Dolly Parton with a Tattooed Tear Telling jokes while smokin Dressed up like a ghost by the ocean Dentist and butlers  Confronting disgruntled Chemists and hustlers On their sentence structure Deconstructing orchestra conductors With a porcupine texture Spreading my mustard Imagine, matchmaking Striking matches on a mattress Hitchhiking to Atlantis On a romantic vacation When you’re camping in Vegas With masons, foodstamps are amazing My instrumentation Is a miniature claymation vacation In a train station Fasten your seatbelt In Aspen and eat Kelp McMuffins defeat health Stuck in a small intestinal 405 Never New Jersey Drive Too dirty to die When Im going 35 miles an hour In a shit shower Im gonna miss power Misalignment of mistletoe Baltimore Maryland Monroe On a golf course doing helium with Edgar Allen Poe And his pet crow Time traveling in the armpit of Art Laboe Using lowrider oldies as smelling salts Do a driveby on your sinuses, In the name of timelessness

Out of the dark, I shed I the light Into the light, I cast the shadow set the mood and do what I do... who's ready to battle... prevail and pursue Like I'm well overdue... but nobody asked you! Nobody asked you!!!! to fill in the blanks... I fill up the tank... like I fill up my drank... My glass overflows... and spills into the bank... And it smells so dank Question me...then I’ll question you... So let’s pull rank.... know your role then run that flank... cos your sorta wack..while I call the plays... like the quarterback...with full control... suckers are just full of shit.... and need to quit while I raise the bar... so high in the sky like a midnight star... Let me cover my grounds.... with the dirt of a scandal... and the worth of a vandal... who's heavy with his words and can drag you through the gravel When you’re running out of ammo.. Has it ever occurred to you??? Severed the nerve in you... Let it emerge in you!!! Let it all purge through and cleanse your whole.. Let it all be to fulfill your goals... My Lifestyle grown Everyday is a milestone... Played out on a microphone... Day to day, and it always fluctuates... Never monotone... I adjust the pace...according to the known.

(yeahhh... you know it goes, you know what I’m saying, you hear the chatter, you hear the sidelines..I don’t even pay no attention to that you know what I’m saying, I just keep doing me) Yo, party’s over here, pity parties over there.. react or respond, but dress accordingly, We’re all moving on, assess your priorities!! Fan the flame or give it no authority.. Party’s over here, pity parties over there.. react or respond, but dress accordingly, We’re all moving on, assess your priorities!!

(right) foreshadow and oppose we pay no attention to a probe (nope) power of intention what I chose.. Minding my own in my zone (ok) Not a clown or clone can dethrone Or negate any chance that arose (uh uh) yo, watch that line that you tow... with my crew or alone, still cruel with my tone...(with my tone) and I move so smooth and my homes where I roam, my Corso on the porch and my hand on the chrome...(bloaw) lock shit down not a rolling stone bumping De La Soul not post Malone (What?!) living for the now and never post pone Yo, party’s over here, pity parties over there.. react or respond, but dress accordingly, We’re all moving on, assess your priorities!!

Grandeur Well, time is a gift but time don’t exist.. so mind your ways.. ask always yourself, what’s it all weigh? on the scale of life we only get one shot to make it all right.. burn that sage then turn that page and forgive your folks Let go of that pain, don’t hold that rage Or reserve your seat at center stage.. for the drama, boy! you’re a mamas boy... so tempted to engage your daddy’s girl and it’s all your world... Watch it all unfurl.. let me give you this pearl.. go with the flow not against the grain it’s a rough terrain so take the road less traveled unless you’re built for the battle.. then roll with the punches let go of them grudges and make no assumptions the trials come in bunches put in the work and get what you want! be the change you wanna see and validate your beliefs or drag you feet and accept defeat... drop out, cop out, and embrace the hate but we’ve been that route you don’t want that bout you don’t got that clout consume by doubt Another record on the shelf Another chapter in the book Chapter in the book make way of follow suit follow through never blame maintain astute cos pain is acute so true to the roots It’s all through the roof you are my oxygen we are so toxicant lost in my thoughts again found since we talked again sounds like opting in cool? cool, as some lozenges blown! Blown in the autumn wind guilt feels so bottomless it’s on again off again on again off again on again off again carved in my heart again and sorta left scarred again left on my own autonomous etched in my stone sarcophagus ghosting and lost in metropolis deading my confidence smothered w compliments gassing my feelings I’m a guess that I’m ominous Promises promises Promises promises Promises!!! Opposite common sense Obvious I’m against Over committed but on the fence So much potential there just ain’t no stopping us Promises promises Promises!!! Opposite common sense Obvious I’m against Over committed but on the fence So much potential there just ain’t no stopping us Uh, try new things let’s live these dreams the. size our rings You’re my universe Within my multiverse Uh, back in my frame I must refrain but I can’t refrain the joy and the pain it’s hard to contain you’re all on my brain the pineal gland please over stand We’re falling in love We fit like a glove it’s just like it was it’s just not enough I’m buzzed on this love I’m rushing my putt and busting my nut.. I gave you my seed implanted at will Call it goodwill Hunting I feel Hollywood stunting like mass appeal she’s a diamond in the rough and I can’t get enough Its love versus lust... The hurt and distrust The pain and disgust... Things will never be the same Unless we learn this trust... hold up your trophy.. and front like a phony... you're lost and your lonely... in time you'll will see.. it was you and not me.. holding catastrophe... on your way to disaster lacking self mastery No knowledge of selfie.. drone like stealthy home life unhealthy two ears one mouth Ain’t shit you can sell me So I stay sucker free She’s the one got a way He’s the one let her go Who’s to really to blame And what’s to gain what was lost? besides the pain that it cost I’ve spent so much time investing these rhymes With little to no shine yet, I’m still inclined a lifetime commitment.. these street ain't safe From a cloak to cape Demon to a saint I'm deep in the paint I sleep through the pain and I dream to escape We are who we ain't they're material girls in material worlds gotta woman by side and our universe coincides with the planets all aligned and divine grand design...................................................... .........................
