***
Delivering unstoppable, in your face rhythm with a REASON. Sky D and LeGrange evolution is a modern powerhouse of funk and rock with vintage tones. Sky D’s fierce, lyrical call for unity in an “every man for himself” type of world is potent and relentless.After realizing that negative trending rap was not for her, Sky broke out of that box to be free to express her contempt for prejudice, violence, repression, and the cut-throat nature of society. Her music, which ranges from aggressive power rock to hip hop and soul, was featured in many NYC venues, underground spots and showcase competitions throughout the last 8 years. Additionally, her solo performances have been showcased on VH1, NBC, and UPN. Today, Sky fuses conscious, militant and sensual content to construct an original sound that is uplifting and urgent, all while keeping the fun alive. She also radiates a sassy, powerful sensuality – the “come over here right now and nail me up against the wall type of sexy.”

With much fortitude and resourcefulness, the band was recently able to self-finance and produce 9 song CD. Sky D and LeGrange Evolution’s debut album, “Join the Evolution
Available on iTunes Feb 26, 2010.

PreHook

They said to me ‘Just be You’
and that’s what I’m gonna do
That’s right I’m living my truth
I use my head I don’t shoot

Verse 1
It aint my fault I’ve been picked out to be a renegade
Against the way these rappers out there like to imitate
Everything the great ones do Its like they syndicate
These repeats make me gag. Half of them are spittin fake
Fabricating these stories about their day to day
So I’ve been sent out just to call it. Yo a spades a spade
I’m not gon let this music rape me jus for getting paid
So you music prostitutes can enter Hip Hop pearly gates

Even if you spit it and live it why do you glorify this way of life teaching younguns how to die.

I’m like a lion, I can’t go nowhere without my pride
I did my dirt and I’m not tryna get locked down inside

Sky’s the limit get with it you don’t need ice and fitteds to live a life terrific

Must I get specific?
Do your own thang be original. Own it. Live it. Claim it or be forever nameless

PreHook
They said to me ‘Just be You’
and that’s what I’m gonna do
That’s right I’m living my truth
I use my head I don’t shoot

Hook
(Shout it)
Can a soldier get a hand clap?
(Shout it)
Something wrong with a sista tryna give back?
(Shout it)
I’m sick and tired of giving into the masses
(Shout it)
I gotta put this foot of knowledge in their asses
{{Repeat}}
(Shout)

Verse 2

It starts small. Now take me literal. From the house to the block to the civil.
To the county to the state to the federal
Eat my words they’re incredible edible kibble for the mind
While you on your grind
Think about the precious things that you put on the line
Baller status now get out before you ride the pine
Underground its simple with your family left behind
Used to think I had to be like them him her
The more I tried the more my light got dimmer
Put my finger to my temple, stepped out of limbo and picked up this pencil so I could treat it like a sickle
And whittle away at all the grime around me
I wanna have success and I wanna lift up my peeps
Believe in karma, you do sow what you reap
I’ma shout it now so later little ones will lead

Hook
(Shout it)
Can a soldier get a hand clap?
(Shout it)
Something wrong with a sista tryna give back?
(Shout it)
I’m sick and tired of giving into the masses
(Shout it)
I gotta put this foot of knowledge in their asses
{{Repeat}}
(Shout)

Don’t get me wrong. Yeah I used to do it to
Ya tryna conform to what society set up for you
See whats in the news dictates behavior to the pigment of your hue
Now listen get a clue
Let me explain the rules
Do what you wanna do
But if you’re no longer two
Wanna act like you grew?
Ya see from my point of view.
No time for singing blues
I’ma need all my might for showing what I’m tryna prove
They call it paying dues
I’m boiling. Call me stew.
Im directing this movie
Action
I think that’s your cue
They saying keep it real.
I’m saying keep it true
We didn’t get our freedom to act like we in a zoo!

PreHook
They said to me ‘Just be You’
and that’s what I’m gonna do
That’s right I’m living my truth
I use my head I don’t shoot

Fake

Written By: Sky 'D'

You’re Fake

Caught on to that charade
Tried to play me like an arcade
Truth is best from the gate
But now you’ve made me slightly crazy
Can’t take it don’t like tricks
Can you vanish like magic
I’m bout to have a fit
Look out for I throw these hot grits
A little bit of Fee a little bit of Fi a little bit of Fo and Fum
You a goddam lie you a goddam lie now shut it down you done
Take advantage of me no more no more
I’m at the end of my string.

Hook

Red White blue in stitches
Stripes and stars fall endless
Own commander shot them
Our young boys are his toys
The news projects his voice to avoid the paranoid
I don’t buy it.. Get him fired
Nothing but deceit… a little make believe it is not ok
You a goddam lie you a goddam lie
Let shut it down today
You’ll be repaid for these things for sure for sure
I see your shit and it stinks

Hook

Bridge
Stop acting like were helpless
War paint like we are natives
All we can do is our best
(BELIEVE WE ALL CAN MAKE IT)
How real can we all keep it
Lets take our minds and deepen
The system we can beat it
(PUMP YOUR FIST, PUMP YOUR FIST)
You’re fake You’re fake just get out my face, just get out my fac
You’re fake You’re fake
So get out my face!

Down With This Reign

Written By: Sky 'D' & LeGrange Evolution

Kanye was right when he said it after the hurricane
But he left one group out and that’s the human race
That idiotic son of a bitch don’t care about me
He don’t care bout you neither. That just the way it be

It’s all about the power. It’s all about the paper.

He’s more ghetto than we wanna give him the credit for
He’s more of a terror threat than those we’ve tried and more

I implore to the hoards of innocents in the audience
Subject to the torture of government rigamortis
It seems democracy is dead
Cause no matter how we object they just do what he said

Come together. Down with this reign
Come together. Down with this reign
Come together. Down with this reign
Let’s pretend again this place is the peoples domain

And don’t forget it
You won’t regret it
Our children will be indebted
You’ve seen the blood and the tears. Now put your sweat in.

Its not a game. This lame is playing battleship with us
Toy with disaster. Kill our families as a catalyst
Gassing evil intentions while smashing pupils thus
Without seeking the truth, we should be mad at us

Tell me more. Tell me more, I thirst tell me more
Are you the elephant’s whore
Tell me more. Tell me more, I thirst tell me more
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Sometimes ya gotta kick down the door

And don’t forget it
You won’t regret it
Our children will be indebted
You’ve seen the blood and the tears now put your sweat in.

Come together. Down with this reign
Come together. Down with this reign
Come together. Down with this reign
Let’s pretend again this place is the peoples domain
Tell me more. Tell me more, I thirst tell me more
Are you the elephant’s whore
Tell me more. Tell me more, I thirst tell me more
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Are you the elephant’s whore
NO SIR
Sometimes ya gotta kick down the door

Broke Me Up

Written By: Sky 'D' & LeGrange Evolution

VERSE 1
Mouth dry and I’m feelin low
Gut cries cuz its full of hole
Heart black it’s a lump of coal
When will I be whole
Pounded grounded like beef
Inside blended smoothie
Frozen but I wanna bleed
Why can’t I breathe
Heartbreak from another planet
Moth through the flame burned like Janet
Stop the lies cuz I cannot stand it
Smile snatched like a midnight bandit
Ya took a knife and you cut my digits
And cut the rest little bit by bi – it
Used to think we’re the perfect fit
Now I’m buried inside aparment

CHORUS
You Broke me up.
You broke me up
Put me Back together
Put me Back together
Put me back together

VERSE 2
Cracked up desert heat stroke
Burnt up my spirit smokes
Inhale I only choke
How am I still woke
Hurt unlike anything
Torture vice gripping ache
Russian roulhette gunplay
I’m thirsty for daybreak
Kicked hard but you did not let up
Ya had charm plus you had me set up
Ambushed so I could not get up
I’m unraveled like a sweater
Effort unmatched I rumbled
For us this fortress crumbled
Can’t walk can’t even stumble
I guzzle my liquor combo

CHORUS
You Broke me up.
You broke me up
Put me Back together
Put me Back together
Put me back together

BRIDGE
Lets trace the past you treated me foul
Now you on blast you’s a reptile
I need a fix, I’m a pile of bricks, I’m a fucked up chick and you did it you did it
Now I realize I waited too long
You were dead wrong and I was head strong
Tryna pick up the pieces with this song so don’t sweat me be gone

CHORUS
You Broke me up.
You broke me up
Put me Back together
Put me Back together
Put me back together

Fyah

Your sweet nectar, It taste so good to me

I just… can’t get you out my mind you’re under my skin
I love the… way it looks when it’s out and when it’s back in
I think about it and feel that sensation even when it’s not happenin’
Baby come to my pad (I can’t fake it) official climax
Uncontrolable impulses make me ravage and grab
Discovery channel show I’m that jack rabbit
I don’t even have to beg You want it just as much
That’s why we tear at each other nakedness is a must
I say ohhh.
Every inch of me moans
Its so hot that were steaming up the windows
I’m burnin up One way to describe….

Its like
Fyyyyahhh………..
Finga tips is like a lighter
Fyahha
Good Lawd… I’m on Fire
Fyahh
Object of desire
Fyah
Come Baby Cum Now

Get It Back Sucka

Written By: Sky 'D'

Verse 1

Remember what u did? You tried to make me quit.
You picked and picked again until I flipped my wig
Talking so much trash it didnt fit under the lid
at the end of my wits I had to squish it.
Sanitation style U vermin U dirty Admit it
You's a germ Birds bite off your worm and spit it
I stand firm Sweat out my twists I yearn to lock on that ass and kick
You's a fool yo to think that u could hold me back
Hate is dead Dummy stop staring take a Kodak
I see your nose flairin I'm the best Its a wraaaap
I can't keep my cool no more Another word and SMACK!
I'm into problem solvin do ya hear me knockin?
You got me caught in this and I don't even want involvement.
Tryna think of all the ways that we could end this quarrel
All I keep seeing in my head is a revolver.

Chorus
You Will Pay! (It might not be today)
On Your Way! (Betta watch ya back c'ya Catcha lata babe)
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!

Verse 2

Ima share a lil somethin I just gotta mention
I got a few screws loose they're just barely holding back my tension
Fiendin for a chance to strike Crave like Addiction
I try to let it go but I'm on Fire aint no quenchin
At attention you degenerate Son of a Cow!
Even if I don't git back, It comes back around.
BLOW B4 you know it you'll be out and down
I'll be up dat ladder... Look up... How ya like me now?!
I aint losing sleep. U not that big. I sleep all night.
Its just everytime its came to mind, I let it slide.
The seed has grown Things changed Sick of playing nice
Where u at U stupid prick >> I will book a flight
You done got on my final nerve sup whats hattnin
got da hounds on it dontchu let em catch u nappin
You got one more chance I heard that song now TAP
Make it good O i'm gon Black Whatchu think of THAT!

Chorus
You Will Pay! (It might not be today)
On Your Way! (Betta watch ya back c'ya Catcha lata babe)
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!

Verse 3

Its not even that monthly time I'm like a Tick Tick Bomb.
I am a predator day or night the hunt is on.
Catch ya lata babe watch out when I wink and point
The killagrin is cute and vicious plus I'm easily annoyed
Don't under estimate my smile I'm just contemplating
How to express this rage with out self incriminatin
U will remain unamed I'm not gon lend u fame
But u know where u can go... Straight to damnation!
No more hesitatin fam I think I made it clear
Betta say ya prayers b4 ya slumber now... Ya Hear
You did the damage now its all on u to pay the price
Im not a psychic.. its just I don't think your futures bright

I wash u out my hair.
I let your picture smolder
I shake u off my back
I brush u off my shoulders

I wash u out my hair
I let your picture smolder
I shake u off my back
Cuz u gon git it Back

Chorus
You Will Pay! (It might not be today)
On Your Way! (Betta watch ya back c'ya Catcha lata babe)
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!
You gon git yours, You gon git yours, You gon git it back sucka take it 10 fold!

Chorus:
Betta Turn Ya Speakers Up cuz this lady bump like no other
You aint heard nuttin like this
Betta getcha game tight cuz this lady trump like no other
You aint seen nuttin like this
Betcha girl don’t do it the way I like to undercover
You aint had lovin’ like this
Betta rock hard when ya comin’ at ma S – K – Y – D
And it goes a little somethin’ like this

Soooo I got a bop when I walk but I could still model
On the cover of a mag named wobble wobble
You could look all day but do not fondle
If youre lucky suck on these like a baby bottle
Drop it like its ill and I won’t stop till my music makes a bill
And I keeps it hop fill it out wit my hips
If youre tripping get a whop like I turned into madea … Hellooo
The speakers got eyes so get up off the wall, this is a special delivery from skyhawk
Better lean wit it like ya life depends ya’ll rock wit it like you aint tryna lose a leg or arm
Just like I was thinking see them heads nodding wit the groove fight the crowd you could get downtrodden
Love to entertain my audience is spoiled rotten
Drive this hit in your head, Germans call it farfeg—noggin

I like it real real real real real real rough…. Da da da da da da da
I got a lot of bottom … I know ya wanna… I know ya wanna
(WHAT?)…. Rock my gondola
I’m that slick chick like to unmake beds
I’m always drippin wet before we even gittin it
Have ya shoutin out thing that ya never said ya peoples gon think that youre coming down with tirets
This is a queendom show some respect
If youre good then later I’ll make you bark like DMX
I ride ruff … got the ninja wit da jet kit
Skin tight leathers breakem down. Dudes sweat this
I got that boom boom for ya zoom zoom
Plus I got da (GADOOM) to fill the fruit in ya loom
I run this got my grind. Get my pay.
(IF U GETTING MONEY LIKE THIS SAY HEY)
(HEYYYY)

Chorus

(LADIES)
Get low till ya booty burn like leather seats
(FELLAS)
Felllas hit da floor and crotch drop like ya wanna eat
(LADIES)
Betta keep ya eyes wide for them undercover freaks
They tryna be discreet while they peepin at ya feet
(FELLAS)
Watch for pigeons tryna get up in them pockets
Buy her one drink then find out what her job is
But you can do all that after this song
and after the club lose all your boxers and your thongs.
real real real real real real rough…. Da da da da da da da
I got a lot of bottom … I know ya wanna… I know ya wanna
(WHAT?)…. Rock my gondola
Break ya neck to da left like this
Bust a hip when ya wind like this

Head High

Written By: Sky 'D'

Beautiful little one So unprotected So sweet and positive imprisoned by the negative
Try and see it from her perspective when mama slept while creeps crept in and didn’t ask no questions.
Everything that went wrong became her fault. Gittin whoopins for complaining no food in the pot.
Her brothers had mattresses while she slept on a cot. And everytime school teachers praised, mama was rotten,
As time passed, young sista got a job and stank mama stayed up in her pockets.
All the while told her daughter that what she wanted she cannot get. Put her out the house and locked it
How could a mama be so jealous of her own child. Cutting her down everytime she wanted to smile.
Tried everything to ruin her dreams. Makes me squeamish when I think of it she should be beat for evil deeds.
Grown sista doin alright now. At the top of her career. That didn’t hold her down
She broke the cycle got two girls of her own now treat em like they princesses.
Yea she livin strong now.

Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Kiss the sorrow and the pain Goodbye
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Its gonna be okay so dry your eyes
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. This is my life
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. Just tell ‘em. Its my life. I GOT IT!!!

Who are they to say what its okay for him to pursue. He doesn’t fit the family portrait of what they drew.
Darrell tried to confide in dudes he looked up to. He was crushed when they wouldn’t try to see from his point of view.
This is no joke to him so listen up and hone in. Being the youngest on the totem – we say the low man
They drilled on all the things that make up a real grown man
Like a little boy enlisted they barked orders on him
[ Don’t be sensitive. Be tough. Be more like Conan or gladiate like the Romans. Just show them how you are made of stone.]
{But funny thing Darrell wanted to show them other things that he could do. Like how the pros dance. He was alone.}
But he kept it moving stayed focused and in his zone.
He stayed with what deep down inside he’d always known.
He had to go. Back himself if they didn’t back him.
And now he travels the world dancing, he looks back and he’s laughing.

Hook
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Kiss the sorrow and the pain Goodbye
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Its gonna be okay so dry your eyes
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. This is my life
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. Just tell ‘em. Its my life. I GOT IT!!!

Verse 3
Its yours for the taking. Whatever happened in your life before. Just know you can make it.
I demonstrate it but there’s mad people that had it worse I just try to relate it.
I felt degraded living on the streets of LA scraping and shakin ass but naked
Got with the wrong one. We started off dating. Love makin. I think I was infatuated.
Then every waking hour every freakin day I was treated with hate didn’t appreciate my dedication.
It was a spiritual invasion. No more serenades. A fist to the skull always lay waiting.
I became jaded. If this was the school of hard knocks I needed to graduate or sedate him.
Until his life force faded and just to make sure, dig it myself and then put him in the grave.
But in my book that last page never made it. I got it together to live my life so I bounced
Then I gave myself some therapy using a little bit of lyrics mixed with a little bit of sounds
You can call it rock or you can call it hip hop but this is something I like to call GOD.
Cuz I know everything is possible and I know the limit. That’s cuz her name is Sky.

Hook
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Kiss the sorrow and the pain Goodbye
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Its gonna be okay so dry your eyes
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. This is my life
Putcha Hands up. Hold your head High.
Just tell ‘em. Just tell ‘em. Its my life. I GOT IT!!!
