Affirmation

Who do u think u r ?
Who do u think u r ?
Somebody put a spell on u !
somebody put a spell on u !
*CHANT***

She give me love
But all she get is lust
She had a thing for aliens
Cause her minds a mess
They try to put me in pine
but still I rise
use to say that I'm odd
Cause I'm different from ya
Quick jab to the left jaw
I fault soft pau
Always stayed on defence when it came to my heart
And she would always give me shit
Before I kick her to the bricks
And If u dnt know me yet
Then It was never meant
**chorus**
I have to keep u far
Every time u look at me
u picking me apart
Like u from another galaxy
And you never seen a star
Or is it because I'm bizarre
If u dnt like it u can suck my balls.
....
**chorus**

Who do u think u r ?
Who do u think u r ?
Somebody put a spell on u !
somebody put a spell on u !
****

I never felt like this before
Its so much jealousy coming at me bruh
wonder how I moon walk with egg shells on my feet
Its like I been on parole
Since december 16
If I make a misstep then its back and forth
The constant revolving door
For the young black and poor
And when u come up
They whisper
I wish they stayed where he came from.
So here's for the pundits
Who got to say something

**chorus**
I have to keep u far
Every time u look at me
u picking me apart
Like u from another galaxy
And you never seen a star
Or is it because I'm bizarre
If u dnt like it u can suck my balls.
**chorus**
Who do u think u r ?
Who do u think u r ?
Somebody put a spell on u !
somebody put a spell on u !

My Dashboard

Written By: Shauliel Storey

Check out my dashboard
All the lights n buttons hits a nigger deep in the core
220 on the dashhhh
__ _______ _____ __ _ flashhh!
My dashboard*(2)
Got more control
hands on the wheel eel eel eel
feel in control
Storm out the house mad got no place to go
But when I see my dashboard everything lights up and glow

**chorus ends**

A mans car is like his place to chilllllll
Before I turn the keys
Check out myself in the mirror
I'm so so
But my car's a bad hoe
Lay me back
Heat me up
Can't live without your touch
U can see me live
See my rear
I'm going fast u might see me veer
Can't let the world get to me
Sometime the pain gets to me
Power locks keep out them thoughts
Call me smooth in my candy drop
****
**Dashboard*(2)
Check out my dashboard
All the lights n buttons hits a nigger deep in the core
220 on the dash
__ _______ _____ __ _ flashhh!
My dashboard*(2)
Got more control
Hands on the wheel
Feel in control
Storm out the house mad got no place to go
But when I see my dashboard everything lights up and glow

**chorus ends**

(Pause)
(The Zulu Machine)

If u see me on the streets
I might look like I'm sleep
But I'm just high
looking down on the sky
Fingers hit the dials with a hand on her thigh
Turn off them radio vibes
At nights the lights are brighter
As I flick on my lighter
Rock on
To a rap song
Or a blues song but no popcorn.

**Dashboard*(2)
Check out my dashboard
All the lights n buttons hits a nigger deep in the core
220 on the dash
Go anywhere in a flash
My dashboard*(2)
Got more control
Hands on the wheel
Feel in control
Storm out the house mad got no place to go
But when I see my dashboard everything lights up and glow

**chorus ends**

Soldiers

Written By: Shauliel Storey

Its a war going on outside no one is safe from
Brothers n sisters run and
get your hand guns
No one to trust and
some scared of themselves
Never mind the t.v
To busy living show and tell
Single mother 5 kids making minimum wage
can't judge a book by its cover and not read a single page

Can't watch her kids all the time
So they dabble in crime
Damned if she don't get a job another project mom
Looking out the window dreaming of the day she wouldn't have a pinto
Another detail of war bailing her son out
said its all good then dashed on shortly after was the big house
Courts gave him 3 to 9
Now he turned out
Where your father at
Junior gave you that I don't give a fuck face
Dcf replaced him he got his hands on a 12 gadge
Now he lays smack dag on the cover of front page
If you can't read between the lines
That's a motherfucking crime

****chorus*
He's a soldier_
He walks in the belly of the beast
_
He defy's gravity when he leaps.

She's a soldier_
She never been a victim of defeat
_
Even a blind man can see these soldiers.
Military combat if necessary
_
Or march like martin luther king
_
Now the people can't tell me anything . . .
cause I'm'a soldier.
To my soldiers
****End chorus***

Conspiracy theories cloud my mind
Don't know who to trust so I grip on my 9
When your off to war its out of sight out of mind
Human shield for your lifestyle
Provides you the time to dine
Grenades go off all around me HIV
That's why I wrap it up
Even with the baddest queens
They men hate it
Better respect it
Got guns bigger than texas
Metal detectors can't detect it
But what matters most
Is protecting those I know
My family and friends
Close to kins to hooligans
I aint a hero
Cause I did push rocks n blow-
-Go to the studio when its time to share my soul
So I'll never die through my legacy I leave behind
musics immortal when I'm gone turn it high
Never forgetting what they need
As a real MC
Lifting my people up
til I rest in peace
**
******chorus*
He's a soldier_
He walks in the belly of the beast

He defy's gravity when he leaps.

She's a soldier_

Or march like martin luther king
