about

Inherited High is as much an auto-biography as it is a concept album. Based on the Story of Jonah and The Whale, the songs work together to expose the reality of my privileged experience attending private High School in Washington, D.C.

Track Name: Preface (Intro) (ft. Mikah Feldman-Stein)
Verse 1:
Existential Visions of the Man that I might have been if I hadn't started smoking...
Never got to meet my brother and to this day I wonder what he would have to say about my Moleskin.
Mulling over my preconceived notions of the motion of Poetry's got me Zoned in
I had to quit Toking to Exfoliate my Focus
Keep my Friends close
But I keep my Foes closer
And my role models the Closest.
Said I quit smoking,
But I still smoke
Said I'd never hit it again,
But I'd still poke
Got yellow's mourning (morning)
Whites cracking up like Egg Yolk
Plus my black friends like,
"Yo my boy's dirty as gay throat."
I made an oath to stay afloat when I face my quotes,
Never let the taste of those hating impede my Patient Growth
My greatest Fear's this very album,
That or disappointing the descendents of Malcom,
Tell me the Outcome?
(Or tell me how come...)

Verse 2:
So this is for my Sister and her Tutor,
Who thinks that she needs an Adderal to keep up with her Schoolwork
For the future of the Freestyle Club,
And the producers
Grinding behind the scenes while grinding green in their Buglers (Smoke!)
These rumors have me Buggin' Out like Fyfe
Hey Preacher man, Can't I live my life?
I'm only going to say this once,
I won't say that twice,
Cuz by the time I sober up,
I'mma forget last night.
(Get it Right)
Track Name: Ninevah (ft. ABH, Izzy Plus, David Peck, Kaite Solomon & Jack Ladd)
Heebie Jeebies,
My sweetie getting needy,
Fiending for that Pee-Pee,
Make her Kiwi so Creamy,
Please believe me,
She freaky as Kalisi,
And my weed be really kiefy cuz she ship it in from CC
CC my DC-homies that know me Deeply,
And let them know tonight is a night to forgo a repeat,
Sore throat is a given,
Let’s coat the door in Graffiti
And hold a moment for the meaning of living
I know you’re with me,
C’mon,

Kalabunga
Cali cali cmon
Cali bud is in my blunt and I be bumping my song,
Rappin raspy addi-addict snuffing stuff by the bong,
Hustling pong,
Rubbing a Voluptuous Thong
Ashing fatties have me Happy,
Hugging, Humping along,
So Kalabunga,
Cali Cali,
Kalabunga C’mon,
Puffing something and struggling just to shuffle the songs,
It’s tough to move on,
But lately I’ve been in love with my wrongs – So get up!

You buy it,
You pinch it,
You Plop it,
And then you twist it,
Lick it, Lick it,
My train of thought need a Ticket,
Lickity Split,
Admit it,
The Kid is sick with the Triplets,
Bruk-it-down!1

Tittie pics to Tricuits
I’mma eat it all up
Forget about the Cash-Used (Cashews)
Got each hand on my wall, nuts, (Walnuts)
… Doesn’t matter what I gots to take a shot of
I’m awestruck,
That you can’t see the crystal in the Sawdust,
(I) Pocket my worries and hurry aboard,
Slapping a cup off the table I’m able to see when it’s coming and bury the score,
Heard she a whore
And trust me yo the last thing I need’s
Some piece of ass to squeeze
I came here to get stupid,
Fuck it,
Let’s trash the scene,
We singing…

Chorus


--------------

I'm just tryna have Phun

Saggin britches
Classic rhythms,
You gon’ have to listen,

Passive pimpin,

Yal lack incentive
And back the system

Collapse of Business
I don’t rap for riches
But I’m the villian?!
Yall ass is ignant

Verse:
This is what I meant when I said I was gonna start a revolution
I have been excluded by the music that I love
but I’m mentally above

foriegn to the hood
and ive never done coke

iz: Supreme. feel da aura
iz: Bodypaint like a dream: LSD in a forest
maryjean smoke screen betchu see a ninja tortoise
Bodies on lean. Please don’t leave- You're a mortal
Techniques that’ll getcha bedsheets all soiled
Platinum teeth: I assume that's aluminum foil
White tee, black lights. That's illusion all on you
Dae: Seduction is a game
both: and I'm a lose if I want to (wan-yu)
Iz: Lose if I want to.
Both: Get loose if you wantoo
iz: I'm in the fast lane til my name is Keanu
Hop off the ass train then claing to bottle
Dae: Maintain my Claim to Fame, Can you follow?
机关我思想开放 - Although my mind is open and liberal
你保守 - You remain conservative and close-minded
Dae: … In the back
Both: Back on the wall; walk past the pack, Sipping Jack
Iz: Without coke --
straight no chase strong taste. Hope Yall don't :
OD- H20: Please sip this so yeass dont die.
Past that junt as you pass by
"Oh me?
Oh my...
Concubine Binary
James Bond bawlin' on Mariah Carey
Raekwon in a Shaolin Monestary
With a blade in his pants ready to stab a fairy

Bridge 2:
Isolated
I’m so faded,
Isopropanol: Mind’s sedated
I can taste it,
high five the waitress, (might be better to end this line with ‘playlist’)
Assalamu Alaikum; no lies nor hatred
X2

Chorus:
Ride with the Vibe
Vibe with the Contraband stashed in the Ride

Bridge 3:
Your vision's blury,
I could give a fuck.
Kiss you worries away with Angel Dust.
It's getting Early babe,
Let's light our lust.
Let go,
Trust me,
Let's go fade into me.

Your vision's blury,
I could give a fuck.
- My vision's hurting, Don't you give a fuck?
Kiss you worries away with Angel Dust.
- I'll be your devil bring that Angel Dust
It's getting Early babe,
Let's light our lust.
- It's getting late now babe, let's light this blunt
Let go,
Trust me,
- Let's go
Let's go fade into me.

Chrous:
Ride with the Vibe
Vibe with the Contraband stashed in the Ride

Let's go fade into me.
Track Name: Talk To Me (ft. Genna Degroot)
8 bar Intro

Chorus:
Tell me what it’s going to take to make this real,
You say you want to kick it,
Like, “Baby, when can I visit?”
But I know there’s more to what you fee

Verse 1:
I Figured that I see you here
And here we are
Sippin’ Beer at the bar
Discussin’ Kierkegaard and our fear in god – I
Never thought that it would be this hard – Eyes
Cross room, meet from afar, Why
Try and Hide what we going through
I got a beer in my hand that I owe to you
But I can’t deny
With the album on the way,
I’ve been on my grind,
And I haven’t had the time to find the words to say,
The way I feel,
But feel me,
I can learn to change
Now,
Just us
Puff Puff
Toss your filter in the snow,
With only our breathes in between us,
Lack the strength to let you know – that

Pre-Chorus:
I can be - what you want from me - but I’m going to need - Some Help
Talk to me, Baby, Talk to me, I can’t do this by myself
All I need - is some honesty - You don’t have to free – My Belt
Talk to me, Baby, Talk to me, Girl, do it for yourself,

Chorus:
Tell me what it’s going to take to make this real,
(Talk to me, Baby talk to me, Baby talk to me, Baby talk to me)
You say you want to kick it,
Like, “Baby, when can I visit?”
But I know there’s more to what you feel
(What you feel)

Verse 2
I feel blindsided by my bias’s for you back end – But,
I still imagine when you speak to me with that accent- Fuck
These people, always be asking – questions
As it is I get mad defensive
Pass the weed,
Get passive aggressive and peace out to lay a beat down,
I can see now,
What you need from me,
But I’mma need at least a week,
If I’m gonna choose the key, and tweek the beat
It isn’t fair to make you think that I’m free to meet – up
Tough Luck,
Hush Hush,
I don’t want to hear you cry
But I’d rip this right from my rhymebook to wipe that tear from your eye

Pre-Chorus
I can be - what you want from me - but I’m going to need - Some Help
Talk to me, Baby, Talk to me, I can’t do this by myself
All I need - is some honesty - You don’t have to free – My Belt
Talk to me, Baby, Talk to me, Girl, do it for yourself,

Chorus X2
Tell me what it’s going to take to make this real,
You say you want to kick it,
Like, “Baby, when can I visit?”
But I know there’s more to what you feel
(What you feel)

12 bar Outro
Track Name: Roll Up Rmx
Hi,
How are you?
You're high?
Well, I'm high!
How high are you?
Dark eyes and Car rides is all I do,
Now,
If you're high get those arms high too!

I Roll Up,
Bumping Hol' Up
Homies have me giving no fucks
Doing donuts in Lexus
In a necklace and Gold Cuffs
Got both hands on both nuts
And she does too
Puff, Puff and Pass 3 or 4 blunts to you as I

*Cough

So what,
If we got the car reaking like an old lunch
For a whole month
With the goal of
Enriching underground trap - Gold Rush
Red and Blue pass - Don't budge,
Taking hits down low like a Cold front
Go ham - Get sandwiched like Cold cuts,
No rush, so we ...

[Roll Up the Grass]

Just to lick it like a lower leg
Hit it again and again and then Go to Steg

[Roll Up the Grass X4]

That's how I know if a Girl's a homie
Rolling Up,
Up beside me in Cut,
Lick a Blunt and light me up
With any luck I'll have international fans,
Stuck in a nasty girl's inner-vaginal glands with her ass in my hands...

[Roll Up the Grass]

So we can light it up like firewood,
Try,
My fellow's ship (fellowship) air tight as Elijah Woods

[Roll Up the Grass X4]

Rodo Splashing with Frodo Baggins,
Photo-Tagging a Moco ho in action
Dragging on my Komodo Dragon
You know the passion of a ho jacking it,
You say Slomo - She go fast as shit,
Know what?
That's the last those lips will Drag-On
Ballzy as Go-Tenks
Smoke stank when I show up
Cul-de-Sac dime all grown up
Ask her zodiac sign like, "Yo, Sup?"
Opening line is two corona and limes,
Eye contact high,
Pass by and laugh as I

*Cough

Cough like I'm a motherfucking boss
And if we had tossed, turned, and laid the Girl's way
I'd teabag her like Earl Grey (You heard meh?)
This is for my women that smoke more than I do
And manage to overcome their misogynistic rivals,
I know,
It's hard when people demonize weed smokers,
Must be worse when they see your thighs and dehumanize you,
It's psycho,
Makes it so I

[Roll Up the Grass]

Even though that every time I

[Roll Up the Grass]

Just want to go

[Roll Up the Grass]

Paradox
I like tits and ass but I'm scared to watch
You flinch and ask if it's fair or not
To objectify thick sexy thighs.
Rare or not,
I'll testify that compared to Pac
I spit it krass,
And let it slide like I'm next in line for the Business class,
High,
Sitting high,
When I

[Roll Up the Grass]

LGBQS & T
On my independent hustle,
You can trust that what we need
Is a Safety Breach,
Basically,
Backyard, 8-inch deep,
Rap Hard, Break the leash we

[Roll Up the Grass]

I got a question for the club.
How does it feel to have your butt dry-humped by a thug?
I don't like it,
And if you do, that's a gender position
I never settle for kissing or getting her seven digits,
I'm in it for fetish finish like Tony Starks,
Stubborn as Rosa Parks,
No wonder these new-comers don't know the art,
Solo and Smart,
Broken apart,
Part enlightened - Part glow in the dark,
Holding a spark,
Flow off the charts,
No Noah's Ark,
But I'm stoked to Start!
Track Name: 6070 Freestyle
6070
Double-Click, Let it Load
Cold Shoulder the Eskimo
Bumping "The Next Episode,"
Pssshhh - Just How we get it Bro
Don't Ask - Don't Tell
Make it a Point of Pride that I Don't Pass Broke L's
The Joint Lasts... Hell, Maybe a Couple of Minutes?
Me and Few Homies
The Ladies in Double Digits
Look
The Trouble isn't Shoes Too Big to Fill
Bitch, I'm an Invasive Species
I Move in to Kill
In the Booth? Keep it Real
Got a Galick Gun and Corner Him
As Bad of an Historian as a Valedictorian
Rapping to Accordion by MF Doom
As we Whip it Down the Freeway beneath a Crescent Moon
I get Depressed by Tunes that my Peers give Praise to
It's like - Rewrite your past, Sell out, and They'll Raise you
Went from Eloheinu
To F.A.C.E.B.O.O.K. Dude
More Dazed (Days) than May-June
Pill-Popping Creludes
Thrill-Shopping Breakthroughs
Rock bottom as Cave Ruins
But Stouck got 'em to Stay tuned in with the Lines I Wrote
Higher Zone than Fighter Drone
Switchblade Kaleidoscope
C'mon... It's Kind of Dope
To Fake Fucks who think the Microphone's the Lightest Load
Try Delighting those Convinced that you're Too White to Flow
Aight
I'll Smear Butter on the Sear Suckers
Of Any Bitch-Hipster that's Flipping Quarters like Deer Hunter
Yippie!
And that's all you got to know about me
That, and the Collective wouldn't throw a show without me
Rep DC
Fresher than FIJI
When you Walk like a Warrior
No Steps are Easy - Why?
Cause Mo Fo's bet that I was Rubbish
But shiii, I'm So Fly - Carried On like Overhead Luggage
When I was Sober, I was Sluggish
But I got Around That
Out Snipe the Combat
Bowling Team got it Down Pat
I Camouflage my Sabotage
Make it Look Average
Cater to the Catelog
Hot Box the Campus Quad
Mac like Macintosh
You Play how you Practice Dawg
And when my Lyric On
My Spririt Bomb Gone Dragon Ball - Z
See, there's no Adjective to Describe it
My Objective is to Brighten as Selective as a Hyphen
Check it and get in Line kid
It's opening night
Shout out to all my Classmates that Didn't Know I Could Write
Let Alone Murder a Mic Every Night; No Question
Question - How does one Perfect Perfection?
The Lesson Here is that you Can't Unless You're Me
But if you Want to Learn Yourself - Press Repeat
Track Name: Behind Bars (ft. Skinny Berlin)
Turnt Up
Going 54 in a 35,
Burnt Blunt,
Smoking, Sipping Forties, as we murder rhymes
Whip it ‘til the Turbine Dry,
Certain I ain’t swerving mine,
Copping grams in my Momma’s van where I learned to Drive

Racist bastards – fake ass fascists
Corrupt cops cant condone and that’s fact bitch
Clocking digits, getting dope in the mail,
If youre white, don’t worry, you aint goin to jail


We were cruising down Fessenden with an eighth in the dash
Young Adults doing anything for a taste of the past,
I had one hand on the wheel,
The other chasing a flask
(We got) Pulled over by a state trooper making his laps,
He asked,
“Son do you know what I’m stopping ya for?”
To color code our offenses,
Or call a daddy on the phone,
I’m not a mind reader,
But I’ve seen it happen before,
This the Racial Discrimination that your captain condones
So No way no police gon’ mess with my crew,
Especially when we polite and dress like we do,
No matter if you po’ up,
Got a baggie or scale,
Chances have it,
If you’re white,
You won’t end up in Jail

Chorus

Hey I was born rich, educated, still I made a wrong move
Smoked weed, snorted pills,
Drank beer bong brew
Drove drunk
Got away with it cause I'm white and rich
Facist ass feds never stop me when I'm high as shit
Racial profiling ass bigots
Sny condescending, so pretentious, got me livid
I be taking trips raking zips in
Clothes stay christian
Dior stain, listen to the prose I lay with rhythm
95 police don't incarcerate me ever
Spark it,
blaze it better
I'm a narcissistic legend
Cops let me off because they racist and complacent
while a bad bitch naked in my space ship
skinny so rebellious and ruckus
and yes this smelling is concocting
i mean it's loud when I'm twisting
I'm never telling the officers
when you pull me over bitch,
I'll be reclining with laughs
Cause they never think the white boys are supplying the packs

Chorus

Story of my Life
And since I’m authentic
It’s the story that I write
Four-leaf clover,
Tall, Tan, Sporty, and White
Shit, I could have been a lawyer and gone to court with a fight
But I recorded every night
And distorted every type
Of stereotype
- White Hairy delight who bury the mic
Barely a night passed without a freestyle session
I learned the art of lyricism while driving in a Lexus
And signing my seconds over to a car full of talented people
Challenging falcons that are quick to sink talons in equals,
Practicing Raps
And Balancing passion with Ego,
Passing illegal substances
Blasting the speakers under us and…

Chrous
Track Name: Carried Away (ft. R.E.N.)
每天下课以后我和我的朋友开车
有的时候吸毒 - 有的时候饶舌
西哈文化给我们一个机会
可处于有利的地位
所以批评者应该闭嘴!

I made it!
Right??

Lost Sight,
And since I said my name was Dae it’s been a Long Night,
But

没想到
到二十一岁还有越跑

I premeditated change,
Told you I would do it and I dedicated days
To elevating the game,
Spitting, Endlessly Laughing,
And celebrating fame,
But wishing it never happened,
(Exhale) Take a sigh of relief,
Interpret, Generalize, Reapply, and Repeat
Used to ride around and get high to the beat,
‘Til it got in the way of what I aspired to be
Now, look at me

Getting Carried Away
Lord know the Truth,
And he dare me to pray,
Fair to Say,
I inherited the narrative of careless kids in Maryland,
A variant of Their D.N.A
Ha (ha, ha), and mine too,
So I do … what I do,
Cause I knew
That private high school was never meant to educate us
More like systematic nepotism meant to separate us
Using standardized tests and AP’s to grade us
Glorifying the Alphas,
And justifying Omegas,
As satisfying as Sega dream cast,
Lean back and reminisce of the fiends we used to be back
Parking up in the lee,
Sparking and spitting free’s
Ain’t – Ain’t no body gon’ to worry ‘bout me
Ain’t no body gon’ to worry ‘bout me
Third-Eye High,
No state of mind was duty free,
Please.

你应该同意
每天都微笑不容易
听我的建议
把每一天当作
生命最后一天来火

别纯金在你的回忆
继续努力
达到你的目的
最好的无疑
是自己的鼓励
我的爸爸告诉我
如果
你幸福感不够

答案不是秘密
勇敢地去寻找生命的意义
第一; 问自己
If you could make someone listen to you what would you say?
Not me man,
I was too high in the Backseat - Carried Away

(Skit)

Riding High and we Blazing
Got my Blazer in Blazin'
Bitch, your dick resembles a Raisin (Oh!)
Spend my nights at the Days Inn
With the women who you were Raised In
She Lays around on a Shady Lounge in a Suede Gown while I'm tasting
Uhh
Couple Cocky Caucasians
Hickory Dock
Her Dick's in a Box
That's what you call a Cock-Caged-In (Caucasian)
Check the Vibe....
...Ayo,
Respect the Rotation
Titties bouncing - That's Basic,
Fuck Movie Stars in my Basement
My crew at large,
You eat Luna Bars and got Bruno Mars on yal Playlists
Face it!
... Another fun day in a Hyundai
Opposite direction of a One way,
Gun play blasting
Some day Crashing
One stray sun ray flashing
Through the cracks of the passages in the Skyline
My raps are immaculate
Like the Iodine of a Flask
Of Ejaculated by my Thigh
Try and imagine a more Passionate Cannabis Smoker
Pulling up the Mansion: It's Over.
Track Name: Underdose (ft. E. Oks & Tanaya)
If you would give your attention to the choir, for a minute...

First Verse:
I light the Thickest L
Breathe in the High,
Greedy go reach for the pie,
Reason for my Recent demise,
All of the bleeding that is seen in my Eyes,
Cleaving wise ass ideas that leak in my mind,
As I think,
Aw yeah,
What a genius am I?
I'm sweet and I'm Fly
Thinking that it leads to decline,
Leaving my peaking behind on the downward slope
Cause seconds after thinking that I doubt I'm dope
And nobody can tell me how to cope,
They want to ground and broke down
Pound the pulp round,
They say as they fill the blunt with mounds to smoke
And I'm with it,
So I hit it,
Then we spit for it minute until I bounce to throw down writtens
And I'm hitting the second floor of my crib
But as soon as I hop in my bed
It's like Fuckkkk I forgot what I said! Dam man...

Verse 2:
And as I sink into his chair,
Looking up old verses versus I stare
Into this document,
Consciousness on a rocket ship
Locking in on the consonants necessary to fair
Well in the social scene of Judgemental glares
Where coke and weed consume vocal fiends fundamentally scared
Of their own potential
And I'm in no way special
When I pick up a pencil I tend to be unprepared
Pair that with the tendency to relentless tear
Back through bare paragraphs with the intent to repair
The rare rhyme that's weak
Cause I was high on weed and anxiety frightfully fought sobriety,
Leveling my Derriere
I'm scared
That I might just do it
Slip a message in my music and use it to spur a movement
I was lured in like a dufus by piff in the game
Fuck writing raps lets play some videogames.

Chorus:
Why do you - Puff, Puff, Puff?
All day long - Puff, Puff, Puff
Pass off the blame,
Scratch up a flame,
And laugh off the fame,
Yet we Underdose on Love
I can't take it
The stress builds so I take hits
And get at it again,
With a pad and a pen,
Yet we Underdose on Love.

Why do you - Puff, Puff, Puff?
All night long - Puff, Puff, Puff
And press pause
Addressing every flaw when the pressure's on
Yet we Underdose on Love
I can't take it
The stress builds so I take hits
End up alone in my Room
Penning a poem to the Moon,
Yet we Underdose on Love.

Verse 3:
Oops...
...Yeah?

"David, I vacated the body and skull that my brain stayed in to find that I ain't painted..."

"What? A proper picture with words?
Have you considered that herb has come conditioned your nerves?"

"Nah, Fuck that,
I'm chilling on the automan,
Filling up on pot and gin,
Feeling like I'm god again"

"But dog,
Look at the place you've gone again,
The look in your face,
Took me off guard,
And hooked me to hate the following,
Awkwardness, autumn wind, and only using my cock to piss"

"Blah, Blah, Consequence,
Stop being obnoxious,
Going on and on about an autumn wind,
You cocky bitch,
I may be high,
But that does not make sense!"

"Well, maybe not to you Mr. Intoxicant,
Who consciousness can't comprehend the consequence of Blazing
Caught within the cycle of leaves changing their phase when
Green turns to Red deeming a sail full of a Day's wind (Dazed Win)
It's amazing..."

"Wait, what?"

Chorus:
Why do you - Puff, Puff, Puff?
All day long - Puff, Puff, Puff
Pass off the blame,
Scratch up a flame,
And laugh off the fame,
Yet we Underdose on Love
I can't take it
The stress builds so I take hits
And get at it again,
With a pad and a pen,
Yet we Underdose on Love.

Why do you - Puff, Puff, Puff?
All night long - Puff, Puff, Puff
And press pause
Addressing every flaw when the pressure's on
Yet we Underdose on Love
I can't take it
The stress builds so I take hits
End up alone in my Room
Penning a poem to the Moon,
Yet we Underdose on Love.
Track Name: Inherited High
The sun shines in your eyes when you arrive on the rise,
Out of touch of the homies that left me alone to die
To you guys that taught me why, when and how to survive,
I wouldn’t be the man I am if you hadn’t been by my side
Look, I know it’s been hard since we went our different ways,
And that I’ll never recapture it rapping within a phrase,
But at the end of the day,
I’mma wipe that slate clean,
And spend the rest of the night in self-denial of our dreams
We were only 18
Playing pong in the basement
Face it
Daydreams of bongs and thongs kept us complacent (Complacent)
Patient pillow talk,
Cogs working long Dayshifts, (Dayshifts)
Mass-producing smog, inheritance, and sedation, (Sedation)
Wake up,
Before you pass out,
Lash out and re-imagine making your dad proud,
Ask around,
Learn what it means to be on your own
Monthly allowances predetermined your yawns and moans,
Wake up, (wake up)
Stimulate your citadel,
The Intel in a Dell simulates a Prison Cell,
Who knew, (who knew)
Mixing Seagrams with ginger ale,
Kiss and tell on the weekends,
And every evening that paralleled,
Passing out, (passed out)
On what we-have been given –
Would make you think beauty sleep was a rational decision,
Stay Awake,
…Really though, Stay awake

Bridge:
Trust me, I know it’s hard,
Catch us of guard when we least expect it
Trying to Piece a Message
Together from Fleeting Seconds
Question the Easy Exits,
In Essence,
No open Door ways
Will ever treat Connection to all that you’re Hoping for say,

Chrous:
Wake up, (wake up)
Open your eyes,
There’s no limit to the interests you can hold in your mind.
Dismiss the disappointments and envision where you’re going,
The code of owning the moment is exposing the blind,
If there ever was a time, It’s now,
To take control of your life,
You can either hit the snooze and push the Folgers aside,
Or wake up and stay focused,
It’s your moment to shine.

What’s the difference between a Frat and a Country Club?
Trick question; Tap into the Stomach of
A Child who was force fed pats and patrimony,
The Act of Giving Back is how I counteract the fact I’m lonely
Unemployed,
Getting blunted with my boys
With the Privilege to make a difference,
But Fuck it let’s enjoy
Killing Yoshi and Roy
Sushi Coated in Soy
Waking up at 11, by 12, hell, I’m destroyed,
And it happens everyday,
Shit, It happens everyday,
Said it happens when it happens and it happens every day
There’s so much that you can do with your time besides getting blazed,
But it happens every day,
And it happens every day (Fade)

Chorus
Wake up, (wake up)
Open your eyes,
There’s no limit to the interests you can hold in your mind.
Dismiss the disappointments and envision where you’re going,
The code of owning the moment is exposing the blind,
If there ever was a time, It’s now,
To take control of your life,
You can either hit the snooze and push the Folgers aside,
Or wake up and stay focussed,
It’s your moment to shine.

As a Kid,
I used to ask my father why,
When we passed a bum on the corner
We just passed by,
He stared at me and said that we donated to charity,
Apparently,
Apathy for his Poverty is the fairest fee to pay,
To say,
That I now act any different,
Would make me a Egotistical Hypocrite,
Listen,
All I can say is this is,
A chance to be heard,
And Hip Hop deserves some content besides dances and herb,
Word
Track Name: To The Top
Opening hook:
To the Top
Yeah, Said, I’m heading
To the Top
Swear, I’mma take it
To the Top
Where the land overflows with milk and honey,
But the fans transpose skill with money,
So I’mma make it
To the Top
Determined to torch who you endorse
To the Top
Doing world wide tours for you and yours
To the Top
Where a stage name can live above the Law
If he maintains that thunderous applause,
I’mma take it
To the Top

Verse 1:
I start my morning with Spliff and a cup of coffee,
This goes out to every professor that’s ever taught me,
Truth is,
I read Verses instead of Novels
And where your lessons lacked,
Emcees, they kept me thoughtful
So I give back,
Never with Tax,
Clever with facts when I sit back,
Weather the Storm,
Better than Norm,
Can’t forget that,
I’ll forever represent the crew,
That influenced the man that I am to you
Up on the Move


Chorus:
To the Top:
Doing world wide tours for you and yours
To the top
Determined to torch who you endorse
To the Top
Where the whole crowd’s cheering my name,
And yet I doubt that yal can hear what I’m saying
So I’mma make it
To the Top
So I can redefine the status quo
To the Top
It’s more than reading rhymes and rapping flows
To the Top
What I believe in and my energy, in essence,
Are the reason my trajectory is destined,
Swear, I’m heading
To the top

So all of y’al Rock to this
From Bethesda to the Mac,
Go ‘head and Rock to this
Middletown lighting up and taking Shots to This,
And down to G-town by the Docks and Shit
And I know my Grasshoppers’ll Rock to This
From up in Naples, Me where the Lobsters is
To the Mac, where at chill, and the family’s at
Let’s bring it back,
C’mon,

Verse 2:
From every stage and every page in my moleskin
I re-arrange and break the chains when my soul spits
Check the business
Second semester spitting it
Twisting up in the burbs like a Westchester blizzard is
Some girls got a brain,
But this is a chest and titties bitch
Invested in my city, Switch,
Wesleyan to the death of it,
Eloquent
Sentences come (cum) together like Lesbians,
Relevant as Apprentices under pressure of selling it To the Top

Chorus:
To the Top:
Doing world wide tours for you and yours
To the top
Determined to torch who you endorse
To the Top
Where the whole crowd’s cheering my name,
And yet I doubt that yal can hear what I’m saying
So I’mma make it
To the Top
So I can redefine the status quo
To the Top
It’s more than reading rhymes and rapping flows
To the Top
What I believe in and my energy, in essence,

Swear, I’m heading

So all of y’al Rock to this

Track Name: DaeQuil
This isn’t Frat Rap
Not Hip Hop
Far from a hot new single about a thrift shop
Not a freestyle, nor a slam poem
Just some shit that I needed to say and so I ran home
To my computer screen
Yeah, I’m a user, So I’m using what I usually
Like to light when I’m in the zone like a 2 to 3
Snipe the Mic with the kind of flow that get ‘em Googly
Google me on 2-C.E
And take a trip
These other rappers is fake as shit
Modern day carpetbaggers; Unattractive as aging tits
The type of plagiarist to write a phrase based on his
And rationalize their passion for lies with rapping to try and make it big
But, if each and of his own is a protagonist
Then what provides the check and balances for how we practice it?
Sorry for the assonance
But as it I’m capitalist
So take it from me
Making money is a labyrinth
Where every way is hazardous
Cost/Benefit Analysis
Best to keep a Dagger with
Like manuals for Masochists
If man began in Nazareth
But planned to land in lavishness
He must not have got it’s men not man that ought be activists
So raise a glass to this
Double back and tag the shit
I said while getting head in bed instead of dropping mastered hits
From Grateful Dead to Passion Pit
I studied every lyricist
Relevant to the elegance evident when you hearing this
Spirit is transient
Body is Self-Aware
Conscious can permeate
The boundaries of wealth and Where - we are
With stealth, I stare, and see far past these helpless hares heralding race as a keycard
I’ll be hard
When I’m 40 and done slamming 40’s
But more importantly
I’m recording to transcend 4D and talk to my future self
Everything you did in a studio you could of done yourself
Stop wasting time denying those who’d love to help
It takes more than one man to indoctrinate the commonwealth

Track Name: Cool Music 104.5
Live Freestyle on Chinese National Radio FM 104.5 (Never Written)
Track Name: Made In China (ft. 黑龙)
Verse 1:
Over the beep bop and beat box,
… As-soon-as the beat drops
I serenade the street block with-my marinated sweet talk
Mean while,
A lady eavesdropping on our freestyles
Sat to Chat with us at the barbecue,
Now, as artists who split our heart in two scarring you with an arsenal of market marginal jargon – You’ll
Have to understand
When she started to slip underhanded remarks about radio
And invited us to come perform live in a day or so when they taped the show at the station,
Yo!
Honestly, I couldn't believe it
Be it,
Being a beacon for disobedience leads to teen allegiance
The briefest breathing sequence could make a difference,
So I didn't waste a minute trading digits with the flirtatious
Down to earth native asian to make a friend in the district,
Excape the mason-Dixon and put and end to the critics,
This is for Bilingual lyricists and producers,
Interconnecting countries, cultures, spirits, and futures Uh
Shout out to Vivian for putting us on
Can't believe the Chinese underground producing my Songs
From Houston to Hong Kong
My fan base growing
Pimp slap the patriot act and hand shake Snowden
Though opponents approach creative
Change has been a broken promise
Name another rapper discussing second world markets
Let alone entering,
The culture shock is hypnotic
Picking up fans quicker than rice with a Chopstick
I'm nice with topic
Arouse the tongue
Like Mao Ze Dong's proudest son: I bow to none
Second we brainstorm, Yo we clouding the Sun
Teaching freedom of speech to the pound of the drum,
But Uh...

Bridge:
Well, I can't say that
Doesn't matter because you're going to get it on the Playback
Cause you can't speak you mind,
Restrictions are the people
And the people are divine

Verse 2:
It’s kind of Crazy…
We pump billions into our Navy,
But don’t really understand the other cultures that we hate – we
Impatiently pace,
Painting our babies racist and angry
It isn't that hard to see why the Mainstream hates me
Made in China
但我的乐队叫黑龙
看一看我的风格
请你判断我的内容
流行音乐的粉丝很满意
因谁是第一个老外出版双语的转机啊!
And that's easy peezy lemon squeezy
Squeeze the piece, deceased on the street beneath me
Please,
Big Perry is the best in the biz
Put Alex and I beside him and you're destined to Jizz
International master of authenticity
Cultural ambassador back packing in Imagery
The Chinese way of life is another chapter in history
Dumplings, Dragons, and Industry
On the path to Validity
In H.I.P to the H.O.P.
I'm the consequence of Consequence and H.O.V.
Making it in a private sector
Plus a semester of making connections in China,
But I was never no fake O.G.
I know who I am, why I'm here, and what I'm doing,
Pioneer for other dumb high students
Pass and ash like a Phoenix
See the dragon in my eyes?
Taking hits like Bald Eagles
We flapping in the Skies

Bridge:
Well, I can't say that
Doesn't matter because you're going to get it on the Playback
Cause you can't speak you mind,
Restrictions are the people
And the people are divine

16 Bar: First Verse

不好意思, 但古老意识
是我的优秀, 不幽默,
吃我的牛肉
从欧洲到美国
谁说我没做最好的说唱
你肯定要模仿
我的反叛行, 你刚刚听着
我的最新一首歌以后呢, 怎么样?
因巧言令色
而孔子请客, uh,
我的小伙伴都不但好看
是而且老板
虽然我平常没有一个小三
但很喜欢吃你的妈妈做的炒饭
我听说过温故知新
但吸烟的时候我考虑最近
流行的音乐真在绝路
可是我不要抱怨所以给你听这个美女

Pardon me, but me grasp of ancient knowledge make me superior to you
It’s not a joke: Eat my Meat
From Europe to the US, who said I wasn’t the best in the game?
Chances are, they want to imitate
My revolutionary nature
For instance, right when you first heard my music, how did you feel?
My childhood homies are not only attractive, but additionally bosses
Although I typically don’t keep a mistress
I can’t deny how much I enjoy sticking my face in your mother’s fried rice.
I Heard that we learn from our mistakes,
But as I sit here with this cigarette I can’t help but feel like modern music lyrics have lost the way
But I don't want to complain,
So take a listen to this lady and realize for yourself

You’ll get four acorns in the morning and three at night: What I mean to say is that I’m the zookeeper of you monkeys. From now on, I refuse to look back, The Answer is Beijing, the question is whose feeling me


16 Bar: Chorus
谁是你的爸比
孔子教我应该卑视你的法理
所以我使我的法力
傻逼是傻逼: 闭嘴
你就在我的家里
谁是你的爸比?
因我做你的妈妈,可以叫我你的爸比
不好意思, 我知道我的内容
但要是音乐没有什么感觉, 就是没用

Whose your Daddy?
Confucius taught me to never conform to your way of life -
So I exercise my beliefs。
Bitches gon’ be Bitches:
Shut up: Your’e in my house now.
Whose your Daddy?
I guess since I slept with your mom, you could call me your Daddy
Excuse the vulgarity, I’m well-awware,
But if music fails to transmit an emotion, then what’s the point?

我处于有利的地位
天堂的后裔
专辑是免费
但如果你不相信我
左右顾盼
青出于蓝
不可能反对
特别是我总是干贝
从三岁
到现在
我的编排
总代表亚文化的意识形态

You gotta admit, I’m in a great place
As a descendent of the heavens
Pushing a free album
But if you don’t respect/believe me
Take a look around
Who else has inarguably surpassed their mentors?
You don’t have the right/ability to oppose.
Especially because I’m the one buying out the bar
From when I was 3 years old to now,
My bars have always represented the ideologies of youth culture

Verse 1:
一切,发生的太快
我的舅舅跟他的太太来
接我们
敲着房门
告诉我们
只有一张(船)票给一个人
一切都是未知
怎么取舍照片和佩饰
应该留恋何物何事?
没有机会再吃一顿热食
背井离乡
别无选择
夜晚出洋
越过德国的边境
逃离纳粹的 掌 掴
中国是犹太人唯一的去处
唯一我在乎的是我的父母
航行朝着东边的方 向
承 载我的希望梦 想

It all happened so fast,
My uncle and his wife came to our house during the evening,
Knocked on the door,
And told me parents that they only had one ticket out of Germany,
Everything was a blur,
How do you choose which belongings to take with you when you are forced to leave your home?
Should I have been reluctant to leave my loved ones?
I didn’t even have the opportunity to eat a final meal with my family.
I had no choice but to leave very late in the evening,
My Uncle brought me across the German border,
And helped me escape the Nazi abuse of Jewish individuals.
China was the only viable option for Jewish People,
But all I can ever think about is my Parents,
For I selfishly left them and sailed East,
Carrying nothing but my hopes and my dreams.

Chorus:
这是我们的过去
忘本是我们的绝路
历史回忆要在乎
不能让它再 重 复
这是我们的过去
忘本是我们的绝路
为了我们的小孩
不能让过去变 成 未来

This is Our Past,
Forgetting where we come from puts us on a Road to Ruin
History deserves attention and care,
We can’t let these events ever happen again.
This is Our Past,
Forgetting where we come from puts us on a Road to Ruin.
For the sake of our Children,
Don’t let our past become their future!

Verse 2:
当我终于来到中国
脏乱的街道我没有 想 过
只身一人, 不断疑惑
卖掉所有的东西仅为把腹果
多亏扶贫机构给我找到住的地方
居住环境和欧洲很不一样
有一个同样是犹太人的移民告诉我我的家人在
纳粹手 上
邻居 中 国人家的孩子病的很 重 ,
父亲医 生 的本领一直在我心 中
我竭尽全力挽救
给他新的自由
解决家人的忧愁
之后我们 成 为朋友
我的故事很多人也有
犹太和 中 国人都感受
无私的奉献和感恩的接受

When I finally arrived in China,
The streets were even dirtier than I had imagined they would be.
I was all alone, and I couldn’t help but be filled with doubt,
So I sold everything I owned just to have enough money to eat.
Another family of Jewish immigrants arrived and informed me that my family had been killed by the Nazis,
Fortunately, a Jewish-American relief agency reached out provided me with a place to live,
My neighbor was Chinese, and his son fell very ill,
I had learned some doctoring skills from my father, and I was able to save the young boys life. In return, my neighbor helped me get a job and we became good friends. Many other Jewish immigrants have similar stories to mine,
Chinese and Jewish people have a lot to learn from one another,
We share the same feelings towards selflessness and altruism

Chorus:
这是我们的过去
忘本是我们的绝路
历史回忆要在乎
不能让它再 重 复
这是我们的过去
忘本是我们的绝路
为了我们的小孩
不能让过去变 成 未来

This is Our Past,
Forgetting where we come from puts us on a Road to Ruin
History deserves attention and care,
We can’t let these events ever happen again.
This is Our Past,
Forgetting where we come from puts us on a Road to Ruin.
For the sake of our Children,
Don’t let our past become their future!
