Crackhead laugh prod. Simon smthng

Verse 1

Still Stuck in the dungeon,
Survival has been my biggest foe,
Mind over matter,
Let em know,
That you already know,
For those that brag and boast,
Label this the antidote,
The modest being honest,
Quick to turn up every stereo,
It Started with that notepad,
Now we in the studio,
The power's in the people,
That's exactly who i do it for,
Mapquest what path to take,
A million miles away,
Long days,
Late night,
Tryna keep my eyes awake,
Every bar frame,
Somehow just rejuvenates,
Airstrikes detonate,
Designed made to separate,
For Better words segregate,
But Saturday's we celebrate,
Until we teach the robots,
How to operate,
The universe is listening,
To every paraphrase,
Interpretations of a rebel with a renegade,
Hey mama,
Watch your sun shine,
For these rainy days,
And picture perfect don't look perfect with no picture frame,
And id assume that all these problems seem to come with age,
Its sad to say that they rubbed off me in the worst of ways,
I plan to finish,
Once I balance out the difference,
we just Cruising round the city,
Continuing on the mission,
Tho,

Hook

Ayo


My objective,
For my artist tryna illustrate,
Continue towards the method,
Apply pressure,
Open heaven's gate,




Let us politic,
Back and fourth some common sense,
Idc what seem legit,
Nor what these critics gotta say,

I peeped that shit a mile away,


My objective,
For my artist tryna illustrate,
Continue towards the method,
Apply pressure,
Open heaven's gate,



These critics parasitic,
Draining just like cable vision,
Cut off ya radio'$ and television's,







Verse 2

Still
In fear that things will never be the same,
Forbidden knowledge found
in every book,
And every page,
Every composition carbon dated,
The opposition's got it complicated,
Meere layers now levelz,
like alkaline metals,
Not to calcify the brain,
Restoration and regain,
Play the game,
Fasho,
I find it funny Some say knowledge is a burden,
And so,
How ironic,
I say perfect just ain't certain,
You know,
The De-classified,
Categorized as primitive,
Ignorance is bliss,
Within this whole collective consciousness,
Micro currents energize,
Electrify the genesis,
Apex predators,
Identify my nemesis,
My Dreams changed,
Tho the motive still the same,
Don't hate the player,
Hate the game is what i will say,
I plan to finish,
Once i balance out the difference,
We just cruising round the city,
Continuing on the mission tho,
Track Name: Reflections (Prod By Simon SMTHNG)
Tayla prod by simon smthng

Verse 1

The earth spinning,
Most of this hand written,
My future still blurry,
Somewhat still vivid,
A lot still missing,
A picture with a mission,
My reflection not perfected
One ghostly ass image,
Bumbing me against the world,
No cure for this illness,
This fight for humanity,
One dirty ass scrimmage,
I mean far from finished,
Back to reality,
Back off the map,
In the dungeons of rap actually,
I'm still me,
For anybody else that's mad at me,
Sprouted from the facility,
Welcome to the academy,
Whatever family need,
Indeed,
For our dreams,
I was told don't let nothing come between,


Hook

x2

We just living in the moment,
Tryna grasp it, if not own it,
Note that every rap,
is a counteract move for my opponent,
Live fearless and focused,
These vibes still in motion,

Verse 2

Planted seeds
Hoping that we grow this money tree,
Still blessed,
But feel cursed for eternity,
Back when my brother,
Was still out committing burglaries,
Even nowadays,
Stitching samples like its surgery,
I never changed,
Just cemented in my own ways,
Dreaming of the fast life,
Even in the slow lane,
These pit stops,
Call for octane,
These city lights
Show a different pain,
Altho one in the same,
Know the game,
And how it played, fasho,
My representatives agree,
You do all this just for show,
And So,
What you think we finna pull on the low?
An introduction of,
What people never seen b4,
Correct.
Anytime i got it right,
I probably guessed,
Signed checks,
Success,
Mo money more stress,
luv yours,
I was told,
From the wise,
Proceed,
I agree,
Altho it might take some time,
reason is reasoning,
I throw in every rhyme,
Visuals for the blind,
Designed for the paralyzed,
Who else but the enterprise,
Fortified and synchronized,
Our origins are hidden,
I just read between the lines,
I pray along the smaller things,
That keep me satisfied,
And Nowadays to save the world,
We gotta strategize,
I say it's u-n-i,
Others call it genocide,
Fuck whatever telling lies,
And f*ck whatever's televised,

Verse 1

I look up, and sure enough,
I ask for guidance instead,
Money really ain't a blessing,
I just needed some bread,
Back to thinking ahead,
No longer laying in bed,
Andy mac said yo you got it,
You just lost in ya head,
Foreal,
Me and simon smthng,
Chilling Feeling the vibes,
He said you just tap into,
Whatever you feel inside,
My decision,
Well respected,
Still not close to my prime,
I Incinerated the latest,
Slowly boosting the crime,
Me i'm focused on the future,
Not whats dwelling behind,
For those of mine,
doing time,
I wish you's right by my side,
And for those that never made it,
Ya'll inspired this rhyme,
For my team, for my platoon,
Ya'll the reason i shine,

Hook

Down these outter city streets,
It seems impossible to think,
Level up and maximize,
Because society's a shrink,
I mean,
Ive been blessed with,
Much to be expected,
D'evils infected,
Helping with my direction,
Progression,
Dividing and conquer every section,
Our method,
Melodies embedded with a message,
My motivation formulated,
Self esteem,
In a world where its never how it seems,
Nahh mean?


Verse 2

The ones that i wanna save,
Simply lack knowledge of self,
Im still Learning how to love,
B4 i love somebody else,
Mos def this black starr,
Head hunting for the black crown,
Piercing every ear drum,
With these drum kit sounds,
vivid visions take time to comprehend,
I'm Perceiving my own energy,
A place i never been,
Grab the pen,
Dodge the cell,
Illustrate,
My show and tell,
Penny for thoughts my
Wishing well,
Heaven sent,
But raising hell,
I keep finding myself walking in my old
mans shoes,
Greatness causes nervousness,
Indigo said and it's true,
Expansion one of my motives,
Its written but never spoken,
My circumstances are golden,
This problem child is chosen,
Live fearless and never frozen,
Dedicated and focused,
You feel these waves in the ocean,
Literally vibes in motion,
I'm sorry,
If what we told,
Ain't all that it's supposed to be,
Lacking all i ever wanted,
Was all of us to be free,
Track Name: Expansions (Prod By Simon SMTHNG)
Expansions prod by simon smthng

Verse 1

Im Far from excellent,
Its clear and still evident,
I speak it fluent,
Vivid pictures turn out elegant,
Heaven sent,
Stuck where knowledge,
Leads to punishment,
The Puppeteer,
With puppets,
You can find within your government,
Accordingly,
These melodies,
Lately have been restoring me,
Functioning,
This black magic must have came from sorcery,
That,
Transitioned outta body type experience,
To Parallel dimensions,
Nobody here know exist yet,
Tell me how you been,
How your childhood friends?
Ducking and dodging jail,
I just hope i hear from mine again,
Still Stuck in the booth,
Missing on a meal or two,
My homie said,
Enjoy the finer things,
I keep reminding you,

Hook
Its all perception,
Who progressing,
We enlighten,
We the titans,
Still forming our galactic wide alliance,
With my 47 pirates,
Still not slipping,
In the slightest,
astro project,
& Those who hate,
Don't have to like it,
So,
We should vibe,
Near the sand on the beach,
Looking off in the horizon,
With our dreams in arms reach,
A shift from the mind,
Easily Could spark the globe,
Funny how we all connected,
Yet all of us feel alone,

Verse 2

Fake smiles,
I no longer need to hang with,
Yea its been the same kid,
Speaking my own language,
Pedaling this medicine,
Far from a gentlemen,
My representatives,
Are none other than dead presidents,
Magnificent,
Still transitioning,
Play your position,
For this music my prescribed fix,
Quite lit,
Without a pre-rolled spiff,
High off of life,
Kind hearted,
With these verses ima spit
Peep the rhymes,
Reed between,
Why divide,
Peep the scheme,
Chasing life,
Grab a mic,
Where living life is but a dream,
You know,
This planet civilized,
We remain camouflaged,
Lurking thru your nightly sky,
Praying we all stay alive,
Cold blooded,
The system meant to confine,
If not pray upon on the weak,
Assassinate and then crucify,
Our timeline slightly shifted,
Pay attention,
I've been Working overtime,
just like after school detention,
But!
