Biography

TORONTO, ON Toronto born-and-bred DJ, producer, songwriter, rapper and definitive multi-talented musician, Miles Jones, released his highly-anticipated album, The Jones Act Part III, on October 23, 2012. Through his own label, Mojo Records and Publishing, the release features collaborations with fellow Canadian hip-hop mainstays like Kae Sun, D-Sisive, Kayo, Ghettosocks, Tona and A-Jaxx.

Blending futuristic beats with that unassailable boom-bap head nod quality and familiar strains of house, Jones has crafted a critically-acclaimed brand of urban music that speaks to his eclectic upbringing in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. His infectious charisma at live shows can be in part attributed to the early influence of his father, Deadly Hedley an influential DJ in Torontos club scene.

After releasing his 2006 debut, One Chance, as his graduating thesis at McMaster University, Jones began working on his 2009 sophomore release, Runaway Jones. Featuring some of the top players in Canadas hip hop scene, including Boi-1da, Black Milk, Percee P, Kae Sun and Shad K, the album charted at number three on iTunes Canada and received sync placements on CBSs CSI: Las Vegas, ABCs Rookie Blue and on the 2010 CTV Olympic Broadcast. While garnering international acclaim, the album won Jones a Toronto Independent Music Award for Song of the Year and a prize for the 2010 Billboard Song Contest.

In addition to his activities as a DJ, producer, singer/songwriter and owner of Mojo Records and Publishing, Jones is a contributing affiliate of the creative group AMDcollective, which has produced most of his unique visuals, including the back-alley-rap video for his song Never Wrong (Remix). The video was picked up by MTV and accompanied his breakthrough into the U.S. marketplace.

As inventive in business as he is in the studio, Jones recently co-created the Catch Me In The Rye Comic Book with writer and illustrator Ben Roboly. Based in his second home of New York City, the comic gives visual backdrop and expands on the story told in Jones recent single Catch Me In The Rye. There are 11 more issues to come, each based on the premise of a different song on The Jones Act Part III.

Early reviews for The Jones Act Part III signal another hit for young Jones.

Lyrics

Rocket

Written By: Miles Jones

ROCKET

Verse 1
Get a girl, get a drink, get your move on/
I push my rhymes like weight, something to grove on/
Just listen to me/ until your glass is empty/
And watch how swing that ‘boom’ girl don’t tempt/
Cause I been straight playing my drums like a drummer/
And I been great making hot beats all summer/
So don’t mind me/ if I charge a little fee/
I learned that everything’s business ain’t nothing for free/
Gotta make that cheddar/ just to make life better/
They say to be rich I need a Gucci sweater/
But that don’t phase me those material things/
And really gets me/ is a girl that sings/
So I keep my cool/ that’s my #1 rule/
Until temptation gets the best of me like Paula Abdul/
And no I ain’t a fool, just a rapper skeeming,
I guess I’m intoxicated from this life I dreaming cuz/

Chorus
I ain’t trying to do anything you ain’t trying to do/
Girl your trying to chill, well I’m trying to chill to/
But when it comes to ‘Rock it’/
I’m a set you off like a Rocket so watch it/
I ain’t trying to do anything you ain’t trying to do/
Girl your trying to dance, while I’m trying to dance with you/
But when It comes time to ‘Rock it’/
We can blast off like a Rocket so watch it/

Verse 2
Feel the bass go bump and get your swerve on/
Get low like elephant man now get curve on/
But don’t be rude/ giving lip to the dude/
Who wants to have a little fun when acting prude/
Cause if you act that way he going to call you boring/
He’ll be miseducated like your name is Lauryn (Hill)/
So get drunk or high/ and push your hands to the sky/
And grab that guy who said you was fly/
He didn’t lie/
Keep that pretty smirk on you don’t need no make-up/
And do the belly dance, give your body a shake up/
Let’s twist again like we did last year/
C’mon please get down because I’m so sincere/
And I walk the walk there’s no need to talk it/
So tell your friend not to block it let’s Rock it/
Chorus

Bridge
Let’s break it down/
C’mon and break it down/
Hey miss c’mon and break it down/
Ha ha ha ha ha ha (whispers)
Break
Let’s break it down/
C’mon down/
Let’s break it down/
Ha ha ha ha ha ha (whispers)
Now let’s go
C’mon

Verse 3
Sorry in advance if I come across blunt/
I’d rather swing for the fence then go to first on a bunt/
So I do what I do/ please don’t misconstrue/
Thinking I just wanna get in those jeans it’s not true/
I wanna rock with you, not cause my name is MJ/
And your see sweet mmm mmmm..let’s go play/
We’ll skip the parle-vous straight to francais/
Baby girl do you dance/
But remember that

Chorus

Solo

OUTRO (whispers)

So Young

Verse 1
Yo check the flavor, I know that it’s real/
And when I see shorty boo ya I know how I feel/
She got a mass appeal, a body so fine/
I know she got a man but I’m going to make her mine/
That’s fine/ she could be like my princess forever/
And I’m a be her man yo whatever her endeavor/
She’s clever and kind of crazy/
This girl she done amaze me/
She can direct my blues like Martin Scorsese/
You gots to understand the situation/
Right now we friends but soon we’ll be blazing/
Unless of course yo she tells me that it means nothing/
Then I’ll be like yo miss why you been frontin’
And keep on searching til’ miss perfect drops my way/
Thought it was you, damn with that body you what can I say/
I can’t front I thought it was a sealed deal/
I’m So Young but c’mon girl let’s make it real/

Chorus
I’m, I’m, I’m so young/
I’m so young but this is how I feel/
And I’m/

Verse 2
She was my amber rum love/ Colour brown honey love/
The kind of girl that most sit and day dream of/
Ya she was my fly cutie pie/
Progression of expression can be hard but you know I do try/
I don’t lie because I do feel blessed/yet sometimes stressed/
I need that fragrance aroma of zest/
My eyes they wonder lost in her presence/
Her lips, hips thighs to eyes show the beauty of essence/
Damn I think I like her with a body so tight/
Could never of imagined that I’d find a girl so hype/
You my type just like the sun always shinning/
Can’t you see what you’ve done you my reason for rhyming/

There’s other fish in the sea but I don’t want know other/
Ya we’ll keep it strong no need to ever smother/
Hope to say one day that you my friend like a brother/
And be my guiding light like that one true lover/
You vision is why I rap to this/
When I’m with you my world is paused with happiness/
I hope I do the same for you cause my heart is hung/
I’m just saying ma, yo I’m way to young/
C’mon/

Chorus

With U

Written By: Miles Jones

With U
Verse 1
I had a dream that it was me, the one that you came to/
when times got rough, would be the one that you claim to/
blame you/for feeling now the way that I do/
see it was not in the plan to catch feelings for you/
just like the untouchable, unclutchable, beautiful thing/
wish to hear you sing/
with a voice that eased my mind intelligence unreal/
this had my up late nights wanting to tell you the deal/
but I couldn’t cause circumstances stood in the way/
blocking my say/
but most of all blocking the day/
that I wished would come new it wouldn’t all false hope/
this had my heart on a dream/ this not a day time soap/
it’s uncontrollable, an urge from a wonderer’s heart/
this feelings I had I knew could set friendship apart/
imagination set free like an unused drug/
so I re-lease these words as my untold love/
and sing

Chorus
When I’m with U everything’s right everything’s cool
(everything’s alright when I’m with U I ain’t with U homeytte so I miss U)
When I’m with U everything’s right everything’s cool
(everything’s so cool when I’m with U I ain’t with U homeyette but I’m wishful)

Verse 2
I apologize drunken night wasn’t my fault/
you see the liquor let the feelings quicker out of the vault/
I tried to say it when sober but I’d bite my tongue/
This is the second time I’ve felt like this and I’m still so young/
High strung bell rung situation’s a mess/
I keep it in my memory call it the magic from Hess (village bar)/
But it eats me up inside to think you probably forgot/
Therefore I run like a fugitive until I get caught/
By the one who cares for me I’ll make everything cool/
cause truthfully in this scenario I’m playing the fool/
Just tried to spill it out, emotions built up and they popped/
I tried to fight 'em off but in dreams they couldn’t be stopped/
I let my pen be the guide til’ the plot sees the end/ only pretend/
Visions of you holding my hand/
It’s so surreal to imagine but it pleases my soul/
making me strong to move on and making me whole/

Chorus
When I’m with U everything’s right everything’s cool
(everything’s alright when I’m with U I ain’t with U homeytte so I miss U)
When I’m with U everything’s right everything’s cool
(everything’s so cool when I’m with U I ain’t with U homeyette but I’m wishful)

Verse 3
I swear I held those perfect hips, kissed those soft lips/
Had fantasies that we were doing honey dips/
On the surface it’s like sometimes I feel it’s a sin/
But I can’t help it cause this feelings goes deeper than skin/
Deep from within/ I’m waiting I’m wanting to learn/
I guess I’ll wait another lifetime until it’s my turn/
You know it’s true what they say it’s hard to settle as friends/
But every heart that’s been broke I know eventually mends/
I like the fact nothing can buy you/ not even diamonds and pearls/
Those are the things that making you my favourite girl
I sing U the world because you always feeling my vibe/
Want you to travel around the globe in passenger side/
Or chill in my ride crusin’ your smile’s like sunshine/
Want you to put your arms around me just one time/
I said it now I’m done I’m glad my words have been spoke/
That’s how I saw it my dream one night until I awoke/

Chorus X 2

(Outro)

Bring it Back

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse 1

Some say your gone, I say you’ll never lose it/
You’re true to me, I stay true to the music/
When my back’s against the ropes and I’m on the grind/
Your like that one true love that I’m hoping to find/
Define you cause you is more than rap/
To find you don’t need to bust a cap/
I just chill maybe puff some la/
I praise you like Rasta’s praise Jah/
And I never stop til’ I reach the top/
I’m like you, despite you had to kill Pac/
And B.I. my G. Jigga had the flow/
Nas broke it down on the political road/
And that’s that, the Roots and Gangstarr/
My influences but in truth there is way more/
I gotta say emcees today are wack/
But on the real I just want Hip-hop back/

Chorus x2
I want you back again/ Let’s bring it back when the music was real/
When the beats and the rhymes would give you that feel cause/

I want you back again/Let’s bring it back all the way to the start/
When emcess would just rhyme for the love of the art/ cause/

Verse 2

It’s less of where I’m from, more what I say/
Even better bless to make music my/
It’s less of what I do, more of what I see/
My opinion, If you right to please/
It’s like you gave away your right to breath/
A way with words, how you might describe me/
A blend of dopeness from Rakim to Kool G/
On the streets of whatever city at whatever time/
Somebody killed dying/ I don’t even blame it on crime/
I see the bigger picture, better yet things beyond me and you/
Forces we can’t see we just embody the struggle/
A younger me would have thought to go knuckle for knuckle/
Intellectually pound for pound/ mind over matter/
I stand for the words the Malcom (X) spoke/
Floating on Diallo’s last breath even when broke/
Hip hop’s all I got left/ Let’s bring it back baby/
The voice of Africa, I told y’all/

Chorus x2

Verse 3

Let’s join forces bond together it’s a hip-hop nation/
I’m sick of rhymes built on exploitation/
So I fit me and Kae in the equation/
It’s amazing take a toke(yo) like we was Asian/
No matter the subject we always crowd raising/
We not temporary like Holidays Inn/
It’s just a way of life/ I didn’t choose to live it/
It chose me ya’ll see so I’m supposed to live it/
I do it all put my heart and soul to it/
Ya’ll knew like Nike I just do it live/
Stay fluid lived through it so ya’ll know the deal/
Paint a picture of my life like a movie reel/
Thanks Kae I think we blessed this track/
MJ you know we blessed this track/
Peace to emcess who hold it down lets stay in contact/
But on the real lets bring hip hop back/

Chorus x2

Breakdown
It don’t stop we bringing it back/
Because we love hip hop so we singing it back/
My people
It don’t stop we bringing it back/
Because we love hip hop so we singing it back/
Mojo
It don’t stop we bringing it back/
Because we love hip hop so we singing it back/
B-boys don’t stop B-girls don’t stop let’s bring it back/

The Boom Boom

Written By: Miles Jones

Intro break

Chorus
I want the boom boom day, the boom boom night/
The boom boom fresh, the boom boom tight/
I want the boom boom kick, the boom boom snare/
If you want the boom boom put your hands in the air/
I want the boom round, the boom boom shape/
The boom boom music on my boom boom tape/
I want the boom boom kick the boom boom snare/
If you want the boom boom put your hands in the air/

Verse 1

You see the boom attracts my eyes just like a magnet/
When I see it’s nice and fresh I gotta have it/
So I grab it, hoping that I don’t get slapped/
If it’s another man’s boom boom then I might get capped/
Like that’s a rap, I stop and think for a second/
If it’s not my boom boom then I got to respect it/
But I can’t! Why not? Cause boom boom’s my life/
I want a boom boom car with a boom boom wife/
Ya understand what I’m saying I’m spraying to make sense/
I hit the boom boom like a car dents/
Maybe it’s soft or hard or a middle between/
My lady friends say that I’m the boom boom fiend/
I can’t lie I am the boom boom man/
I want the boom boom from the T dot (Toronto) to Japan/
So I slam like the doctor (Dr J) Sam I am/
There’s no coincidence my star sign is a Ram/
Like god damn/ girl I wanna grip the ham/
So I be licking my chops like it’s a fresh rack a lamb/
God damn/ girl I wanna grip the ham/
So I be licking my chops like it’s a fresh rack a lamb/

Chorus

Verse 2

I see boys holler the ladies like the boom boom is free/
Ya see to get it you must have G.A.M.E/
Get a circle of girls like Bill Bellamy/
But as for me, I get mine with zero fee/
Got wax it, relax it, jet and flee/
Leave no traces, like snipers on a killing spree/
Ya feeling me/ well guess what I’m feeling the boom boom/
Tight waist, thick hips shaking the room room/
Like ohh ohh, I’ll De La your Soul/
A true gentleman I wanna butter your roll/
The polls in and boom boom is number one/
I be fast like Reed Johnson, hit and run/

Chorus

Verse 3

Most girls wanna shake what they know they have/
Kinda like a signature or an autograph/
They say there you go Mj thanks for coming/
I say no problemO then I get to running/
To the next boom boom, there’s a lot to please/
A quick massage then I put the girl at ease/
With a tease, moving on straight to the topic/
So pretty so fresh wanna see how I rock it/
Like up, down, left, right and center/
Dangerous zone caution before you enter/
Into the land where the boom boom resides/
It’s a love rollercoaster we can go for a ride/
They go from dancers, gymnasts, to natural born/
They range from nice and new to used and worn/
It don’t matter, the fatter the better to get done/
I don’t wanna be a player, ask Joe peace to Pun/ (Big Pun)
Hey hun, don’t be letting me on/
cuz in a minute I know we’ll getting it on/
I can’t lie, I’m loving the boom boom/
It’s no ad for Mazda but I say Zoom Zoom!/

Chorus

Bridge
I want the black boom boom/ the white boom boom/
The day boom boom/ the night boom boom/
The Asian boom boom/ the brown boom boom/
The girl that I just saw downtown boom boom/
Latina boom boom/ I want the boom boom
All over the world

We Playin'

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse 1
C’mon you gotta fix yourself/ and stop thinking life all depends on wealth/
you gotta give it up if you got your health/
but now let’s keep it down move around in stealth/
you say that your impressed cause I understand/
what makes you tick/ turning boys to man/
you say that your ex-man/ hit the road and ran/
had a quarter-life crisis and hi-jacked a plane to Japan/
is it cause he got so frustrated/
or is it cause deep down he knew you weren’t stimulated/
that must of made him so degraded/
you say that you loved him, but now the boy’s so so hated/
and I know it takes time to re-group/ before we shake it up like Salt-n-Peppa and shoop/
why don’t you tell me the scoop before I tell you you’re swell/
and if you want the “uh ah uh uh” then make sure it’s “DL”(on the down low)/
because

Chorus
Uh you’re making it hot/ it’s getting me higher/ I’m playin’ with fire with fire/
I be damned to stop/ it’s taking me higher/ I’m playin’ with fire with fire/
We’re making hot/it’s getting us higher/ we playin’ with fire with fire/
and we be damned to stop/ it’s taking us higher/ we playin’ with fire/

Verse 2
C’mon baby girl slow down/ don’t wanna be the promiscuous girl of the town/
and no I’m not accusing/ just being cautious some people make mistakes
in the morning they nauseous/ plus I kinda like all the tension building/
there is something about it that’s so fulfilling/ you tell me that I’m bad
reminiscent of Shaft/ whisper something in my ear and then you giggle and laugh/
you say you got a man but he ain’t here right now/
you blow me a kiss gimme a wink with your brow/
I give you a bow/ being the queen of the games/
you say you’re so tired of always dating these lames/
I said I’m feeling the same/ why don’t we keep pursuing/
but hold the phone wouldn’t want our friendship ruined/ doing what we doing/
as opposed to prior/ we both said “shhhhhhh” and played in the fire/

Chorus

Verse 3
I heard a rumor that you was creepin’/ but not in the physical in your mind
you were sleeping/ with somebody else, I’m thinking I could it be/
I’m not telling you to stop, but is he better than me?/
But, who I am to judge what if I did the same/
some people tell you that love is more fun as game/
and truthfully it’s shame/ that we be outing the flame/
to find out what we desire/ danger...we playin’ with fire

Chorus

Bridge ( 8 Bars )
break it down La La La La La La La La’s
and everybody sing La La La La La La La La’s

You know we make em say uhhh

Fade Out

No More

Written By: Miles Jones

INTRO
One life to live, one life to love
One life to live, one life to love
Chorus
No more Drama, No more wack, we gotta come together and stay on track/
No more Perfect, No more pure we gotta make life right and find a cure/
Repeat X2
Verse 1
Lost anticipation of the this hip hop nation/
fortified live to cause mass devastation/
recession, depression, to max inflation/
I paint a perfect picture using verbal animation/
demonstrate with character on the mic is a must/
keeping the words varnished shine to avoid all the rust/
then I bust with the lust like a lover with a fetish/
most don’t understand as if I spoke to y’all in yetish/
can’t you see/ when I plea/ I’m tossing knuckles like a pitcher/
hit ya! feel the game as I switch up the mixture/
lighting up the dark like a bulb to a fixture/
they took you on the wrong path it’s kinda like I jinxed ya/
I heard from the wise man never to snitch/
and then the gold digger showed money hungry is bitch/
I found my spirit in the gutter my soul in a ditch/
the future prophesized it was my time to be rich/
rich in health and rich in the mind/
giving sound to deaf, giving sight to blind/
I never hesitate to ventilate on weapons and war/
I’m just saying yo, “ I can’t take it no more/
Chorus
Verse 2
One, two, three, I blemish your history/
Most cats don’t understand like it’s an unsolved mystery/
Not concerning me/ I speak using seven ghetto languages/
I put you with just bread, eat you like some ghetto sandwiches/
My rap damages you like bombs in the middle-east/
I hit you with a punch-line, get nasty like some yeast/
It’s my mission, my nouns and words I use as ammunition/
I slash the best, can play any position/
so listen my objective to reach the whole nation/

Never Too Late

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse 1
How’d it get like that / how’d we let it slide/
Can’t quit it/ I was with it/ I got too much pride/
Less room for error, less time /
Less of what I thought was a dream to be mine/
Didn’t want to be the barer of bad news/
You might understand if you saw from my shoes/
Situation went from worse to loose, loose/
And that’s when we blew the fuse/
And it a’int all good/ and the that’s the truth/
Had to fall over the edge to cut shit loose/
And it don’t make sense like a light from the tunnel in the sky/
And now I’m stuck asking why/ like oh my my/
How did we go this low from that high/
I guess it snows where the roses lie/
So why say bye, We supposed to be friends/
Well keep your enemies closer and make amends/
My man/

Chorus
It’s Never too Late to say sorry/ Got me wondering damn where are we/
It’s Never too Late to say sorry/ Got me flipped out can’t believe we tripped up/
It’s Never too Late to say sorry/ Got me wondering damn where are we/
How’d it get like that/ how’d we let it go/ I know we both to proud to ever let it show/

Verse2
You know we both too proud so instead we misbehaving/
Waiting for the other to cave in/
Like “I’m sorry!” No you’re not! / if you were we would have loosened this knot/
Forget who’s right/ forget who’s wrong/
Forget how it started and just move on/
But it’s been soo long it gets harder to do that/
The days go by it gets harder to move back/
True dat, true dat, it’s over blown/
But it just takes one time to pick up the phone/
But now I’m all alone screaming I don’t care/
Went for the strike/ got stuck with the spare/ and it’s hard to bare/
Too tough to fix/ like a grape juice stain/ or scuffing the kicks
So play your cards right don’t try to act clever/ and it’s too late never
Never ever, ever ever
Chorus

Outro

Closer

Written By: Miles Jones, Janey Brown, Dan Griffin

Take a minute, sit and set your mind at ease
You’ve been moving so fast that you’re forgettin’ to breath
Stressin’ yourself out so bad you can’t even sleep
And it keeps on gettin’ worse you need to set yourself free

Hard work, No rest
There’s nothing is you left
Tears, blood, and sweat
You’re runnin’ to death
You’re dues have been paid
Believe that soon they’ll be a change

Don’t give up-
It’s gonna’ come around
Open up-
You know the time is now
No more-
Getting knocked down
Those days are over
You’re getting closer

It seems the rain’s been pourin’,
For days and days and days
Your patience starts to shorten,
Can’t wait to break away
You’re screams don’t make a sound, they’re numb with too much pain
and it’s hard to stand you’re ground when you’re going insane
Crazy! In this world of broken dreams
So frustrated…
‘Cuz they’re out of your reach
But know they’ll be change
You’ll grow out of this phase

Don’t give up-
It’s gonna’ come around
Open up-
You know the time is now
No more-
Getting knocked down.
Those days are over
You’re getting closer

*Miles Jones* RAP
I can’t wait another day, feels like I’m gettin’ closer in song
I try keepin it right, but like ‘Big’ I’m dead wrong
Takin’ hits from the bong like Cypress, I might just
speak proud, but my head’s in the cloud
Broken promises haunt me
My past still taunts me
I’m never givin’ up like Rocky,
Can’t stop me
I’m not cocky –I just know I’ma do it
M.J., Janey Brown, Soul Fluid, bump to it

Don’t give up-
It’s gonna’ come around
Open up-
You know the time is now
No more-
Getting knocked down
Those days are over
You’re getting closer

Chorus x2
From city to city from place to place spread love it’s the only way/
And from town to town we raise a toast across the world from Coast to Coast /

Verse 1
Jones in japan mr. half African/ im blowin’ up the spot like blam!/
Got my jeans cam, see the sunset to night / cherry blossom trees got me feelin’ alright/
Take another bite, belly full of raw fish/ sips of Ashi & Sopporo with my dish/
And I’m gonna make a wish that this is not a dream/ Tokyo birthday I brought the whole team/
Culture so rich, cooled out nation ‘Arigoto’ (thankyou in Japanese) Mr. Jones, I’m lost in translation / listen to my station I keep it on soul /
Hungry for more so I want another bowl / Well I’ll be on tour so hit me when I’m home/
I found some inspiration to write another poem / and maybe I can show em’ that this be ‘for real’/
Had a meeting in Shibuya struck another deal another deal/

Chorus x2

Verse 2
I tell my friend throw that tape on, let it play our song /
a little while longer while the days young
we did, / watch the dust settle over parked cars, mid-day heated then it spark /
This place I call home originated my vibe, African sunrise bigger than my pride /
It's A double C -R-A the place where I stay, Mama said son you get love you give praise /
So with that thought I was raised, till I retire, buried in the hills overlooking something beautiful /
Check out the land with the golden face people, freedom and justice see what we live through, /
It's less than a dollar a day for most of these kids, joy in the simplest things for most of their years /
Whichever way the wind blows, peace is what we need most, coast to coast i raise and toast the motherland. /

Chorus x2

Time Machine

Written By: Miles Jones and Khary Dandy

Verse 1
He stood tall like a lion/ brave with no fear who battled like a tyrant/
Death defiant sporting his belt like Orion could never knock a man for trying /
He made moves with style honor and grace / had secret wepons like X – Men Gambits ace / and he wanted people out of his face and off his case and that’s when began his chase/ like a time warp journey through the stars /dodging the media like meteors writing his bars/ and he wansn’t into fancy cars instead he had a Jimmy Hendrix complex to burn guitars / and he got so mad at the music his true love / couldn’t make it fit like the OJ glove / that’s when his mind and soul had been crossed, falling out of his world how did he get so lost
Chorus
I need a Time Machine to take me away / I need a Time Machine to show me how it used to be / I need a Time Machine to take me away / I need a Time Machine to show me the way I feel lost.
Verse 2
Never thought it could happin this rappin stuff / I was too used to calling labels bluff / and now that I see where I’m headed and where I’m about to be not sure this Job’s for me if I commit a robbery I’m fufilling a stereotype / but as a rappers I’m fufilling a stereotype / I want a Time Machine just like Hype / I’m gone audios find me on Skype off to never never land like peter pan / ah man I forgot the Runaway band ah damn / they taking my records just like Sam / it’s time to bounce to beyond a foreign land and maybe I can find my sanity cuz it’s not fair I swear trying to acheive such vanity I’m like MJ the Man in the Mirror and in my Time Machine it’s much clearer /
Chorus
Bridge (repeat x 4)
When it's all done and all said/
I still feel stress like shots to the head/
I pray for guidance the truth be my med (ication)/
and In my Time Machine my souls fed

Again

Written By: Miles Jones

Intro (Drums)

Verse 1
Again and again no need for a pen/ Mr. Jones plays to win/
So I jumped in on a one way track/ A one way feeling to make your neck snap/
And rock it to the rhythm/ Rock, Rock it to the beat/
Rock it for the lost boyz wondering the street/
Speak to the past, inspire the young/ play it for the peeps who are bound to get sprung/
Do it so ill/ he for real/ again and again how he do it so chill/
Oh so nice / no need for ice/
Has his own vision to breath new life/ he go again.

Chorus
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on again and again /
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on……
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on again and again /
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes Boom-Bap/ Boom Boom-Bap

Verse 2
Pick a spot, plug it in/ this lyrical starts at the finish-line where most begin/
So again, I sculpt words with my pen/
deliver a toast to the most high that’s broken in/
and I be, soaking in what’s a joke to them/
see me sitting in the shooter seat scoping in/ watch me cock back pull it, perfect 10 (ten)/
get my swerve on, mix it like juice and gin/ ladies loosin in/
cause uptight girls get shut down like the ugly friend/ and no this is not pretend it requires a snap before the beat hit like macho men/ we go again/

Chorus
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on again and again /
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on……
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes on again and again /
The beat goes on again and again/ the beat goes Boom-Bap/ Boom Boom-Bap

Abuse your frame watch me bruise the game/
because to many rappers out there seem to sound the same/
faking lyrical to spiritual and one with God/
I know the thin line between selling out is rather hard/
Like this Emcee (MC) I know said he did it for the love of the flow/
But wouldn’t perform for less than 10 G’s ($10,000) a show/
If you call that love, I call it lust for fame/
As soon as your signed they got your lyrics on tame/
Like an animal locked up inside of a cage/
the way hip hop is represented I’m viciously raged/
I hope to shine light maybe open your ears/ cause I’ve been breathing this music now for 25 years I go again.

Never Wrong

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse 1
Go getter/ Mr. Trend setter/ thought he was the shit in the patent leather/
Pimp cup / hair all waved up/ rode around the block asking the ladies what/
Said hey/ what’s up missy / you can hop a ride if you going my way/
She said wait hold up a sec/ you not quite my type but no disrespect /
He thought twice / tried to be nice / should have peace’d out like Kobe’s wife/
Just then guess what happen / dude on the spot just started rapping /
Big dubs music in loud clubs/ up late nights sipping drinks on drugs /
Girl stopped / jaw dropped /look into her eyes like her heart just stopped/

Chorus x2
And it goes on and on / pop another bottle of the champagne Dom /
Turn up the song / you don’t know what we on /
And it goes on and on / pop another bottle of the champagne Dom /
Turn up the song / we could NEVER be WRONG/

Cool dude/ liked to be rude/ ignorant mind with an arrogant mode /
Sniffed yay / liked the big pay / on-line status said random play/
Sex freak / tried be sleek/ had a new girl everyday of the week/
No stress / liked to impress/ rubbed on girl in the mini size dress/
Put on an act liked Christopher Walken/ No prob cause the money did the talking/
Picked a bar got into a fight / picked wrong dude/ wrong day /wrong night/
Rocked out /teeth got knocked out/ wound up in an alley with his body chalked out/

Chorus x2
And it goes on and on / pop another bottle of the champagne dom /
Turn up the song / you don’t know what we on /
And it goes on and on / pop another bottle of the champagne dom /
Turn up the song / we could NEVER be WRONG/

Verse
Never thought in mind I’d be taking you/ now you changed around my life and I’m thanking you/ and I’m thinking everyday how I can get to this dream I keep having see/ it becomes clear to me/ I must blow up one then my name be out/ if I sleep and I fall that’s a shame no doubt/ got a thing for smooth beats and chill girls with that same type of attitude / that is what gets through/ that be temporary/ and not quite necessarily/ stimulating where I see myself in the future so suit what you feel is the best/ I’ll give you my rest/ not a test / but it seems I’ve been blessed/ like an angel without wings I’m taking my steps just to see what is mine/ rap define / cause damn you changed my mind/

Say What

Written By: Miles Jones and Shadrach Kabango

Intro
Say What Say What (repeat X4)

Verse 1 (Miles)

Feels so right feels so good/
Ghetto to suburb / each and every neighbourhood /
I think he so can / be the right man / M. J. aka the flight man/
I raise my right hand and solemnly swear/ speak through music with my soul I bare/
And it’s so rare to find someone to care/ reached out to Slakah soul music’s prayer /
And he answered my call/ completed my wish/ see me penetrate and go base-line swish/
Or should I say Swiss to watch the right time/ play the same beat as I choose the right rhyme/
Uh she’s a dime body so fine/ you think you got a chance come’on please get in line/
I’m a get mine no more riding the pine/ people be like damn this dude was unsigned/
Chorus
Say what Say What
Say what Say What
We got the beats to make em’ say what say what
Say what say
We got the jazz like say what say what
We got the feel good vibe say what say what
Say what say what
Say what

Verse 2 (Shad)

I’m in my laid back mode/ slakah move back/
Rappers who’s that/ dapper dude / back backers all drew after/
It’s shad K cash made praise due fact that I make that whack pay dues like the new Napster/
Say what I don’t know what I’m saying Miles/ I just pictured cats trippin’ when the played the file/
In an age where it ain’t okay to smile/ a change gonna come just be like Janis man and wait a while/
I’m barely rapping when I rock the place/ it’s more walk this way or that Joc and Jay cut/
The new collab call it say say say what/ what with MJ meaning Miles Jones get it straight yup/
Sometimes the masses need a second or two to catch up to you/ especially if it’s fresh and it’s new /or best/
They respect if you reflecting the truth/ but if you end up with your neck and noose and they say what/

Runway

Chorus
Runaway that’s what they’d say/ Runaway that’s what they’d tell me /
Runaway run run run Runway/ Runaway , Runway Jones, Runaway
Runway Jones run run Runaway Jones/ that’s what they’d tell me/
Verse 1
Mamma didn’t raise no fool / She showed me books and she stressed my school /
She told me if you use your brain as a tool / the rest will follow son you’re soon to rule /
So I took the advice she gave / pulled up my socks made my face look brave /
Hello new world it’s me / the daycare superstar at age three/
And yes those G.O.L.O games are so boring / where’s the stage I’ll do the performing
Come on Jennifer quit that snoring / nap time’s over it’s past morning /
Who’s that roaring where’s the crowd? / party people I need y’all load/
I’m so proud but I just can’t stay/ I made my mark and now it’s time to runaway/

Chorus
Runaway that’s what they’d say/ Runaway that’s what they’d tell me /
Runaway that’s what they’d say/ Runaway that’s what they’d tell me /

Runway Jones run run Runaway Jones/ that’s what they’d tell me/

Verse 2
When I sit down with my pen / I try to think what will come of me by the end /
some play for keeps, some play to win/ I wish upon a star so it’s not pretend / and if
this is how the story goes/ work hard play hard til’ the day I propose /
then I suppose it would be all mapped out / switch up the game when I’m all rapped out/
Cause I could give a damn if the shit going to sell / no label on my back so nothing to tell/
Instead I cast a spell hit you deeper / lease suspected new school sleeper /
Think about a dream / dream about what I think / think about the day I’m going to get my link/
Never going to sink or that will be the end / this is what, this is what I think with my pen /
I need at least about ten of whatever it is/ got to break bread to survive in the biz /
of whatever it is I’m going to keep on shinning / until that day I hear the radio whining

Rhyme Like This

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse
If I could rhyme/ truly Ginuwine/ with a design/ to find a couple notes take em now I’m makin’ em mine/ and over time I’d be destined to shine/ get inspired by a book or a poem with a line/ and my shyness/ would grow into flyness /instead of excuse me um sir it might be your highness/, minus/ the stuck up attitude cuz that’s not like me/ but if you act rude then bite me./ And it be likely/ and I just might be/ a chilled out cat with a beautiful wifey/, chilling in the shade well I’m getting paid/ and yes I’d prefer to tour the world then drive around in an escalade/ searching to fine my purpose/ cuz without a purpose/ my life would be worthless, worthless. People might think I’m a joke without me sharing all these thoughts in my head and how my hearts been broke/

Chorus
Do you remember them days at a time like this/
When the music was fly and you could rhyme like this/
I remember them days at a time like this/
With that feel good vibe and Icould rhyme like this/

Trust Me

Written By: Miles Jones Russell King

Intro
trust me
and i'll give you your needs right
trust me
i will make you shout for joy
trust me now

Verse 1(Miles)
he said trust me flow so plushly
his eyes had a vision what was given it must be
just he was hesitant remembering the past
he'd seen it all vanish like sand through the hour glass
he leant his heart out and a piece of it died
his soul casts a shadow to swallow his pride
he saw potential in her and wanted her to ride
her smile exposed what he was feeling inside
uncertain of the future
he wrote her a song that said girl i will do you no harm
and i can promise i will try
to build our friendship as days go by
and i wont lie but let's not rush
so you can tell your mama that this ain’t hush
and go ahead blush but hold on tightly
before you love me
because girl you must trust me

Chorus
trust me
and i'll give you your needs right
trust me
i will make you shout for joy
trust me now

Verse 2 (RaSoul)
if money is the root, the pain is the flower petals
she loves me, she loves me not...
just a wish, no wonder dandy-lyin so much
in the sun for the green his thumbs dying to touch
he got seeds to feed, he needs flow
go an check from the river but the bank says no
so to well wishers, wishing him well
willing to trade trust to wet up the dry spell
telling the stories of the lavish and the lush
if he wanna get ahead then in cabbage he trust
lettuce, toss ideas and brainstorm
until the pains gone
expose the root of the problem and let it rain on

Chorus
trust me
and i'll give you your needs right
trust me
i will make you shout for joy
trust me now

Bridge (Miles)
you gotta trust that

you can't rush that

ooh hush that

you gotta trust that

Outro
and i'll give you your needs right
and i'll give you your needs right

i will make you shout for joy

Things You Do

Written By: Miles Jones

Verse 1
Wrote me a letter made it out to a lady/
I’m hoping that she’s well I ain’t spoke to her lately/
I figured being apart makes the heart grow fonder/
I sent you those e-mails/ you didn’t even bother/
You know it gets harder/ it could never be east/
I’m happy to hear from you but kinda weezy/
All mixed up and this ain’t no joke yo/
remembering discussions of our baby’s cute like cocoa/
these feeling that you somehow provoke though are all so real
I guess I’m loco/
Stuck in a chokehold I need to release to breath air/
But your piece of mind gives me reason to care/
Truthfully I can’t explain it/ no reciprocation has got me tainted/
But I can’t stress I gots to stay cool/ I can’t help myself with them things you do/

Chorus
Things you do / things you do/ I’m so caught up on those things you do/
Things you do things you do/ you’ve broken through with those things you do/
Things you do / things you do/ I’m so caught up on those things you do/
Things you do / things you do/ you’ve broken though with those things you do/

Verse 2
If I’m so brave and you’re so driven then/ then when’s our investment gonna pay /
off this dividend/ and that’s how I’m living then it’s tough to trust you instead I pack
my songs with the rhymes that bust like busta/ and we could move on and be chill
again/ start so fresh like Prince and Will and them/ I’m your messenger you the
receiver just leave it to me like they’d leave it to Beaver/ Beaver Cleaver I meant
clever girl/ let’s face the seasons and change with the weather girl/ let’s not severe
girl it’s not too late yet/ I know it’s twisted but that’s how fate get / so take this
ribbon til we meet in the heaven/ and wish upon a star like eleven eleven (11:11)/
and play this song when you feeling down boo/ I know you lost but I hope I found you

Chorus
Bridge
My body’s in breakdown /my soul’s in shakedown/
I want to break down/ my soul’s been shook/
My body’s in breakdown/ my soul’s in shakedown
I want to break down/ my soul’s been took/

She a good girl don’t like to misbehave and now I’m pushing her away just to make her brave/ She tell me she gonna put nobody over me/ I said word I know your loyalty is royalty/ that’s why you spoil me with all of the above it’s no wonder my emotions falling victim to your love/ ain’t no question that my family like you/ you could ask my cuz/ I’m just saying we should chill baby a’int no need to rush/ yeah blush don’t hush you like a devil in a new dress / life supposed to be fun so why the hell we gonna stress/ and now I’m thinking all the fun that we should have had/ and now I’m fucked up MJ so Bad/
Chorus
Verse 2
Catch me in the heat like Lebron I’m scolding/ lost in NY swear my brain’s like Holden/ 2011 soon the world is folding/ media dun did it watch my life downloading / or uploading my heart’s exploding/ my soul’s been weathered on cliff eroding / with tattoo scars of the mark she sowed in/ another night, another sound-check let’s load in/ I suppose that I did to myself/ yeah self inflected yeah I did it to my health / yeah wealth addicted I was taught by society / what can I say I notoriety / what can I say I love the variety but truthfully I’m just humble/ and just like the man soon the cookie gonna crumble a gingerbread man in a gingerbread land / catch me if you can I’m the gingerbread man/ catch me if you can I’m the gingerbread man/

Quit that BS gun talking see another body outlined in chalking
Need clinical doctor walk in

Well condition-her no shampoo / reminisce about how we got here and how we stripping off gear/ I met shorty in the club and she was talking erotic conversations and you don’t wanna start with kid/
From the back she was giving me grills/ man you ain’t even heard one of my songs and you was talking about I got skills/ You play games? Well I play them much better than any man on top that I’m veteran/ next thing you know she’s the one who’s become the target seduced by the sound of my voice and how I start shit cause even when they said light skin was off the market I still make the bachelors club this dick is auction
