Biography

Noah was born “Noel Dixon” to Honduran immigrant parents that divorced when he was a young child. The middle child of a group of five, Noel and his family lived in a housing project in Boston’s notoriously violent neighborhood of Roxbury.
At nine, Noel witnessed his older sister brutally shot and murdered outside their home.
At 11, Noel’s mother Celia Dixon was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Unbeknown to anyone, the death of Celia Dixon became the birth of inspiration and the story of hope in little Noel.
In the absence of his father and after the death of his mother, Noel’s oldest sister took custody of the unwieldy clan. After an extended period of unrest and trauma in the Dixon household, Noel sought music as a refuge from the bleak circumstances of his environment.
During an in depth and personally revealing conversation with his cousin Sadik Don, co-founder of Black Shade Records, Noel reached an epiphany. Seeking more for his life, Noel recommitted his self to school and Rap music.
Unable to forget the traumas of his past, those experiences served as the basis for Noel’s transformation to Noah. Believing that a new life started with his musical rebirth, Noah has used his life story as the back drop to the music he creates. Seen by many in the underground Rap community of Boston as a fresh start for a city that has been plagued by a poor showing in Rap music, Noah’s debut album, “the Beginning” promises to deliver.
An eclectic mixture representing the diverse facets of Rap music, the Beginning is the bastard child of Southern Hip-Hop and East Coast Rap. Hard knocking original tracks and intriguing stories produced by the best of the Bean. It is the vessel by which Noah brings life to a new world.

Lyrics

Gonna Change

Written By: Noah


I remember when you were there for me we used to hang tight
I first met you fell in love in the same night
You hated me then because I lived the gang life
You know how hard it took for me to change right
It started good now everyday it’s the same fights
Not like before we used to be the same type
Got insecure when I climbed up more
You knew what this was about its what you signed up for
What the hell did you expect I’m networking with executives
Plus I do the music hit records are consecutive
Yeah they show me love they know that I’m the president
Claim you say I’m cheating but you can’t provide the evidence
Never said I was perfect can’t say that I’m worth it
Just scratching the surface but rap this is my purpose
I’m way too young to go along with marriage
I’m sorry this way of life comes along with baggage

I know you do your thing I never criticize you because
I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW I DO THE SAME THING
I changed my whole life and I did by you
I KNOW….
My times not slowly moving my god I’m only human
I stop and I think at times what I am doing
Everyday I don’t know should I stay should I go
Dealt me a bad hand should I play should I fold No

I did things that’s unheard of
Won’t speak not one word of
To think yo I could’ve been jailed or been murdered
Was nervous the drug game overpowers a little kid
Been lying if I said I didn’t dabble a little bit
Who can turn down 15 gees in one week?
Reminded by the old blood stains on concrete
Chalk lying over somebody’s body who’s gone deep
In the game shots woke me out of a calm sleep
Chose the wrong road traveling down that long street
Moneys power could have your enemies gone cheap
You see you either starve or eat
And where I’m from if they don’t recognize you your getting robbed atleast
This is the harsh reality police brutality
To increase you salary the street mentality
You try to shake my hand I believe you doubted
I was raised by these see the streets come out of me

If you hustle to survive I’ll never criticize you because
I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW I DO THE SAME THING
I hustled yeah I did it I admit it that’s true
I KNOW….
My times not slowly moving my god I’m only human
I stop and I think at times what I am doing
Everyday I don’t know should I stay should I go
Dealt me a bad hand should I play should I fold No

Hey you my life is like a football field its going fast now
And everyday I wake up it’s like the last the down
The pressures on but my heart won’t collapse now
I’m a grown man go ahead and check the background
I ghostwrited my mind is both sided
They’re trying to eat of my style chill don’t byte it
I like to pop bottles so what I ought to do
I mastered the corporate side but the streets were calling too
Seen an opportunity for me to make a couple dollars
No time to be a couple the game is what I followed
Was focused and girlfriend I hope you understand that
And when I come through everybody just stand back
Best of all rappers the next Deval Patrick
Unless your all backwards
Respect were gonna jack ya
Your girlfriends around expect I’m gonna mack her
I’ll never pass judgment collect and get your stacks up

Chorus III( repeat chorus II)

Visions of War

Written By: Noah


Chorus 1.

I woke up and when I opened the door
I nothing but shells on the floor
This Is My Vision of War
I can’t sleep I want to settle the score
Burning me up I can’t take it no more
This Is My Vision of War
His moms crying cause here sons now dying
And revenge keeps knocking that door
This Is My Vision of War
This little boy selling crack to survive
He’s scared so he keeps that gat by his side
This Is My Vision of War

Turned on the hall light cause I was up all night
Drenched in sweat thinking about the times of a hard
Nightmares of three different visions of war
First I’ll talk about the ones from the night before
It was twelve he was headed to the nike store
Sharply dressed rolex and a nice valore
But the haters across the street
Thought the kid was sweet ran up on him
Took his sh** put him right to sleep
And the word got around and retaliation seeps
Through the minds of his fam they’re hurt their hearts are weak
And it’s not just anybody it goes twice as deep
These are killers on the block they’re not nice to meet
Not a word to anybody its not nice to speak
But like at midnight they’re gonna strike and creep
And now the story unfolds they compromise their soul
Because somebody close died this is the way it goes.

Chorus II (repeat chorus I)

I woke up was looking over my shoulder
Seen an Iraqi chocking an American soldier
Was an angry sight to see dressed in army fatigues.
This a vision of war I just couldn’t believe
Was ordered to force democracy up on their soil
To protect the people but we were just protecting the oil.
Protecting the contractors poor with no jackets
Little kids were strapped up this s*** is just all backwards
First we conquer this place then the rest of the atlas
So we can tell the world see look yo we’re baddest
People running towards us bombs strapped to their waist
In the end it’s him or me I took a look in his face
Consumed by my surroundings feeling my heart pounding
Started letting of rounds he slowly hitting the ground
Reaching his hands out shit was so profound
Started to cry tears what do I do now

Chorus III (repeat chorus I)

12 blacks in a room like a family reunion
In a grey uniform we were part of the union
Lord were gonna need him we were fighting for our freedom
Slavery were gonna keep it to profit that’s the reason
What the hell was I thinking late president Lincoln
Promised us 40 acres what the hell was we drinking
His intent was right when we were sent to fight
In order to risk our lives we need incentive right.
Emancipation proclamation guess he meant to write
Confederates were the enemies we were sent to fight
Holding up the flag feeling the time pacing
Marching down the hill in single line formation
In a situation you’ll get shot for real
It’s either that or its back to them cotton fields
And they say its history
But s*** it his story
This war is more bloody than movie scenes in glory man

Chorus IV (repeat chorus I)
