Lyrics

Obscene

Written By: Sterling Daniels

(Hook)
I'm fresh on the scene
One of the freshest you've seen
There is no bestin my scheme
I go so extreme
Runnin on too much caffeine
Now I'm just blowin off steam
I'm blowin the green
Crush in a little codeine
My whole Ora gone like Eugene
Guess I'm just a fiend
Party like I'm Charlie sheen
Tonight we gon get so obscene
(Intro)
Yeah tonight we gettin radical
Walk in the spot where the drinks at
SeeJac I been grindin I need a sabbatical
So I'm askin where the pink at?
Keep an eye out for the federals
Make sure know where the stink at
Tonight we on a flight I'm the admiral
I'm official what you think jack

(Hook)
I'm fresh on the scene
One of the freshest you've seen
There is no bestin my scheme
I go so extreme
Runnin on too much caffeine
Now I'm just blowin off steam
I'm blowin the green
Crush in a little codeine
My whole Ora gone like Eugene
Guess I'm just a fiend
Party like I'm Charlie sheen
Tonight we gon get so obscene

(Verse 1)
I'm fresh on the scene
One of the freshest you've seen
There is no bestin my scheme
Don't f with my team
Or try to cut the regime
Less you want coroners at the scene
Rock you like I'm queen
But you know I am a young king
Bow down little slut kiss my ring
Play y'all like 2 strings
Ballin out is my routine
You just a hack man like youz gene
There is no vaccine for sickness I'm spittin
I'm gettin yall sick just cuz y'all got witness
My bidness is boomin y'all just got evicted
I spit that crack music you just got addicted
I'm over committed. I'm over you kiddin. This just the beginning. Like this the 1st inning
I just drank 2 fifths you can say that I'm tennnin
And I cannot lie man I think the rooms spinnin
Pour it up it up like ri ri feelin like a ri ri tryna find the genie
In this bottle of cap
and get wishes
What's that?
To be The Lord of rap
And that ass that's fat to be sittin in my lap
And I hope she could gotta face to match
But if she can't I take that wish back
Instead gimme a lac, filled with some stacks, 15 bottles of jack
And green crack widda model who can roll in the back
And that's that

(Hook)

(Verse 2)
I'm blowin the green
Crush in a little codeine
My whole Ora gone like Eugene
Really in this state I shouldn't be seen
I'm grabbin my crotch yellin fuck the police
Backhanded this broad could she just spilled the greens
I Don't care how good you look in jeans
All of those trees were uplift my gs
Want my forgiveness best get on your knees
Actin preteen
You think I'm too mean
What's gonna go do leave the team?
You just a pussy Jonathon marten
Go on take this sausage and that's not jimmy dean
Pool full of liquor dive in no clohrine
I can't feel shit is this laced w/morphine

Fuck it Lets rage like bull bitch taurine (x2)

Now we Rollin round the town
Poundin down crown
Lookin round for the cop sounds
Not goin down town
So I drown myself in brown
blowin pounds down
With the sounds loud
Sittin on a cloud, lookin down at the crowds
Feelin like pipes goin hard in the underground
But I'm makin more noise than a thundercloud
Viking flow yeah u kno I'm bout to plunder now
I'm the best I won't give you the runaround

On every track I'm an animal
Know my flow is sweeter than a danimal
Become one the beat so I'm a cannibal
Cuz I eat it's face off like I'm Hannibal
Lector
Lyrical expert
Haters suck my septor
Bees swallow my nectir
Than get up out my sector
I've been workin like a machine
Tonight don't matter I'm gettin obscene

(Hook)

Half Mast

Written By: Sterling Daniels

Seen to many flags at Half mast
Been a couple weeks no change how will that last?
Life is a movie, we about to kill the whole cast
Keep this up and we'll all be gone in a flash
(Damn)
How many people must die?
How many hearts broke how many tears must we cry?
Pray for this pray for that all these hashtags we contrive
But it's too late for the ones who lost they one life
And the worst thing bout it it's like they dyin' in vain
See the times get worse but I ain't seein no change
See the crimes get worse but the results stay the same
Start pointing fingers and start calling some names
Instead of talking we keep shifting the blame
Truth be told I don't understand it
Lawn of love has been under managed
Got rough times it's a thunder planet
Got Bad habits tryna Sunderland it
Give us peace cuz we do demand it
Cuz things around here getting sloppy manwich
Automatic we must raise the standards
Automatic gotta raise it cuz

[Hook]
Seen to many flags Half mast
Been a couple weeks no change how will that last?
Life is a movie, we bout to kill the whole cast
Keep this up and we'll be gone in a flash
(What you gon' do?
We gon' treat it like a glass homie
Raise It Up (x10)

[Verse 2]

Hard to accept the effects of dejected respect is what led to the big issue
Feel disrespect when you vexed so instead of inspectin' your specs you just take it with you
Rather deflect and neglect than reflect and select introspect that's a big miscue
Thats incorrect on the test cuz rejectin 'the facts that erect got ya in a igloo
Stuck in a tundra no coat and no fire
No food no supplies you denied the supplier
You stocked up on lies thinkin you a survivor
Now time to survive and you find you a liar
Open your mind situation is dire
You trying to die or become a Mcguyver
We just gotta roll like a nation of tires
Don't swallow the goop that they say is Godiva
You gotta get active kid
Movin' and shaking establishment quakin'
Like oatmeal they mad at the activist
But with some debatin' we maybe can make it
A movement that they can't assassinate
We venom like head of a basilisk
Change in the world we the catalyst
Believe I'll go back up to bat for this
Cuz

[Hook]

Tribulations

Written By: Sterling Daniels

I got rent due on 1st and I'm a couple stacks short
Stuck on tryna ball but maybe this the wrong sport
Momma keep ya head up, I know we can persevere
Accounts get overdrawn I know the hurt is severe
Waiting for hearse to appear that ain't the way to be livin'
Complacency is the villian
So Imma fight like Jake Gyllen
On my Goku when all the world is on Krillin
Imma Grind until I die so I'll be makin' a killin'
So I go pick my cell phone up
Hit the plug up real quick
To cop me a zip
For me to go flip
Gymnast with the pack you think that I'm practicing tricks
But that's the old me, this right here is just a quick fix
On top of my shit, like a fly buzzin' around
I'm juggin' thru town
Back up in a couple of hours
Still got some sour
Pull off to go cop some white owls
So I can get so graduated like a cap and a gown
I Go to dip my car won't start
It's fallin' apart
My whip and my heart
The days feelin' dark
Not seein' a spark
Kept sayin' that I would but now I'm all outta bark
Can't stay above the water I've turned into a shark
Desperation look for life raft
Things are quite bad
Don't just wanna float I need to chart me a flight path
Cuz on the other of the storm, it's all clear
That's exactly what I always would hear
(They used to tell me)

[Hook]

If there's one thing I know bout trouble it's that it don't last always
But I know the trails and tribulations they can tell you its all pain
But lemme tell ya all the losses that you take lead you to your greatest gains
So I know that I'll strive and survive cuz I was born to fly

[Verse 2]

Feel death all around me on an island of life
Corpses floatin' in the water lost ones all in my sight
On the cusp of giving up and just jumping in
Feel nothing inside of me besides potential I may never spend
Savings account that over yonder ain't workin'
Cash out on this side like I've been bumpin' She twerkin'
I'm for certain
That the serpents
That been lurkin'
On the surface
Want me to fight and kill myself Tyler Durden
Life hittin' like bourbon,strong, sick to my stomach
Kinda odd with the facade put on in the public
Confident and bold but that gold is kinda hollow
Wanna lead and never follow
So second is hard to swallow
Things have been hard. More than 4 hours. Call a doctor
Especially when the storm is coming better check the Doppler
But no trip Cuz on the other of the storm, it's all clear
That's exactly what I always would hear
(They used to tell me)

[Hook]

[Bridge]

Trouble in my way I have to cry sometimes
But we'll be fine so I don't mind (x3)
But still sometimes I

[Verse 3]

Cry out
Sigh loud
Lookin' for the line out
I wanna sell my soul but I don't really like the buyout
Negativity all on my team don't get a try out
I've got the fire I will never die out

[Hook]

[Bridge to Fade]

Wave

Written By: Sterling Daniels

[Intro]
Waaaavvveee
Yeah I caught the Wave (x3)

[Verse 1]

And I ain't talkin kelly slater
We just tryna take the city better go and tell the mayor
Good for your heart and body but ya boy not sellin bayer
Bout to take off on this wave I'm yellin see ya later
Imma slayer of the haters opinions I don't give a shit about
Asking whatcha missed well the kid is always hittin now
You should just be sittin down n watch me like toonami
And ya bet not move a muscle and get hit by this tsunami

Gimme the loot not talkin biggie
Makin bread not talkin jiffy
Wit my dawgs and we been jiggy
Not wit the wave Don't sit wit me
If you wit the wave get lit wit me
It's a ride don't get dizzy
Do it big no Chris Christie
Maul the game, it's too grizzly
On my grizzy I'm never off
Anti-squishy I'm never soft
I'm the coon, that's tryna boom till I'm in the tomb like Laura Croft
Fabric cut from a different cloth, fitting in is not the way
That normal path I got stray
Just tryna rage
Ever since

[Hook]
I caught the waaaavvveee
And I'm never goin back, its a fact
Getting cosigned like an pact, cuz I'm apt

To catch the waaaaaavvveee
Tryna be a symbol like I'm Prince
Boy I'm it and got everyone convinced
Ever since

I caught the waaaaaveeee
And never wipin out what you thought
Turn the game into a route
End the drought

With the waaaaavvvveee
But I'm never crash
Attitude been all the haters kiss my ass
Don't be last
On the wave

[Verse 2]
Homie I'm hangin 10
Entered the game for the fun now I'm trying to run and I play to win
No time for comments objections and knockins and all of your weighin in
Mentally I have been on a new diet my patience is weighing thin
If I am not gainin wins
Long sermon just tryna to get to the ends
Maybe an 8 or a Benz
Damn you can't see me no lens
But you should see that I'm cleansed
That I be droppin the gems
You be so Stimpy I'm Ren
Doin it all for my Ns
Make sure that we never workin again
Make sure that there are no snakes in my den
Don't mistake this trend

[Bridge]
Wave and I'm yellin Cowabunga
Run it like a Marshall my Herd Rollin like the Thunder
On the wave we ride and rise when you off it you just plunder
Tryna make us blunder Man I wish a nigga lumber
Just a youngster on the wave

[Hook]
And I'm never goin back, its a fact
Getting cosigned like an pact, cuz I'm apt

To catch the waaaaaavvveee
Tryna be a symbol like I'm Prince
Boy I'm it and got everyone convinced
Ever since

I caught the waaaaaveeee
And never wipin out what you thought
Turn the game into a route
End the drought

With the waaaaavvvveee
But I'm never crash
Attitude been all the haters kiss my ass
Don't be last
On the wave

[Outro]
Yeah I caught the Wave, Yeah I caught the wave (x2)

Hi(gh)

Written By: Sterling Daniels

[Intro]
Got my feet up watch the clouds go by
Sour D and Bubba got me oh so high
Roll up my troubles and blow them all away
Great green goddess with the kief snow cap
Blunt about the size of a baseball bat
Knock me out the park I'm so so far away
Gone from all the worries that're on my mind
Remind myself that everything will be just fine
Escape from this crazy little world of mine
Everything can heal it just takes some time
Smoke two joints feelin' so sublime
Ash it in the water and get on my grind
Spirit in my system it's gonna be a helluva day

[Verse]

I gotta full plate guess I gotta get to it
Got a sack and raps that're sicker than some lupus
Tryna make my way through this life without a compass
Kush got the squares outta shape like a rhombus
I'm in another world, you can call me Mr. Tumnus
Weed tops me off. Getting bread it's my hummus
The facts of what I rap may not sit well in your stomach
But I bet I'm shooting straight, red raider shoutout Lubbock
In a world that's so low, what's the harm in getting lifted?
To be honest Imma need a new reason for you to diss it
Sounding like broken record of reefer madness
Talking bout it's badness you just bring the chiefers sadness
Yeah I love the herb, I may be a reefer addict
But it keeps me calm and sane in a world that's so sporadic
Now people getting years tryna help ain't that tragic
Just because you don't like the habit?
Uh..
My piffin' is no different
Than itchin' for other fixins
Like vixen fixin' for dick and
Fat chickens fixin' for twix and
I'm tired of the bitchin' and
Im tired of convincin'
Y'all I'm right in my mission
Though you may not see my vision
Still imma keep striving and I'll go about my business
Tryna make difference, better world when I'm finished
I wanna brighten lives I'm the sun gettin risen
Who are you to judge me on the way I'm livin?

[Hook 2]
Eyes to the sky watch the clouds go by
Sour D and bubba got me oh so high
Live your life and let me live mine
Life gets hard and we all tunwind
Can I relax and not pay no fines
Leave all my worries and my stress behind (and just)
Rise above it all
And I don't wanna fall

[Outro]
Fall, Fall, Fall, Fall
I don't wanna fall (x4)

In My Zone

Written By: Sterling Daniels

[Verse 1]
I'm an activist for masses to stray out on they own
Got up in the building and they told me go home
Feelin' like Roger with Tamara and Tia
You can hate all that you want I'm still sayin' Bon Dia
Word excel that's my outlook like a Microsoft
Old friends that dead weight gettin' Lipo-ed off
New friends comin' round, gotta keep my guard up
The draw bridge more cautious than back at the start up
Kickstarter to Vince carter the fence trotters
Either you with me or against me it ain't much harder
Getting floated like a blimp, body fellin kinda limp
Thinking how I'll turn the world to my gimp
It's simp
First I gotta catch my tempo like a metronome
Easy when the jays in me like the metrodome
Thoughts pent up in my head gotta letcha roam
Tryna build one in a day so correct ya tone
I'm ambitious with intention I expect the throne
Just been workin' like a dog but won't accept a bone
See, I want the whole steak car jet and home
Yeah you better take note of how I lecture homes

[Hook]

Cop a zone and I'm gone stayin thrown it's in stone that I'm flown when I'm shown
Fill a cone and a clone then I hone then I home cuz it's known I'm in my
Cuz it's known I'm in my
[Nikki Fasion]
Said I'm in my Zone
In My Zone
Zone Zone

[Verse 2]

And I ain't never out but you know I ball
Building up a wave that will not erode and fall
High times low times boy I rode em all
But I always stayed forward never chose to stall
Better call like I am Saul off what I install
I just scald and enthrall while the rest appall
Honestly I hate you niggas like Smitty Bacall
That's why they gettin' cold shoulders better get a shawl
No thaw
I'm keepin' it so claw
Blow straws don't care about no laws
No flaws but I've had me some faux pas
Like gettin my four broads and tryna go raw
(Cut cut cut. We'll you'll just have cut some out)
That's when I had to make a switch up
That's why I had to chick up
Runnin' game Runnin' game Runnin' game but I'm never not tryna trip up
I'm so cold never gonna slip up
Skatin' on you haters finna get cups
Goin' for the (Goal x3)
Smooth as butter n you know I'm on a (roll x3)
Grindin down the pack and I load it in the (bowl x3)
And you know we gonna (Float x3)
Ready set lets go (Up x3 )
I ain't tryna come (Down x3)
I ain't never coming (Down x3)

#MakeHipHopGreatAgain

Written By: Sterling Daniels

Mic check 1,2. 1,2
Got my new raps tighter than a new laced shoe
Watch me while I cook it like some good fondu
Ten times better than what you can do
Rondo on the mic when I'm passing out the heater
Assistin' Cliff Paul Chris Paul Derek Jeter
I never gave a damn, got no charity for beavers
All I wanna do is slay tracks better grab the cleaver
Boy I'm so cleaver oops I mean clever
It's about to go down tell Kronk pull the lever
Put the hip back in Hip Hop
The zips in the ziplock
Like 'cris how I rip tracks
And dip when the hit stops
My name, alligator no one greater than me
Lyrically I'm somebody that you must see
Shinin' like some china and you too rusty
Pastor in the game you just new trustees
So fool trust me I ain't lyin' on the record
Jumpin' all you chips King me like its checkers
Blacks and whites love me I ain't talkin' bout the checkered s
If hatin' on the kid suck my pecker

[Hook]

Cuz I'm on my way
Nobody can stop me now
Nobody can stop my sound
The mission that I'm on is undeniable
Netting every track Cuz ya boy is Ol reliable

I'm here to stay
Nobody can take me down
Nobody I'll stand my ground
I'm bustin if U trespassin
Kill me all imma lyrical assassin

[Verse 2]

Such class, to me it's elementary
Keep it 100 so I'll stay around for centuries
Put it on god I ain't talkin bout the sentries
Yeah you better Check the entry I'm Finna be
Everywhere and back before your even out the starting block
And I ain't bout the start/stop
Not just tryna reach a goal I'm tryna stride through the finish line
Wanna be known for my rap and my business mind
When I get the shine, I'm tryna light up the world
Buy the penthouse and then invite up the girls
Lift all those around me like I'm doin' some curls
And all kids will say I wanna be Sterls
Send ya head for a whirl
When I achieve everything that I plan
Show you that I'm really the man
Take the game hostage better head my demands
I wanna see ya wave ya hands

[Hook]

[Outro]

If you love the new wave and you don't want it to stop
You love the way we roll and the way that we rock
Say Hip Hop (Hip Hop)
Hip Hop (Hip Hop)

If you feelin' these beats and you down for the ride
Put ya hands in the air wave em from side to side
Say Hip Hop (Hip Hop)
Hip Hop (Hip Hop)

If you got yourself a dream that you give all that you got
And you never gonna quit till you reaching the top
Say Hip Hop (Hip Hop)
Hip Hop (Hip Hop)

If you stayin' on job like it was 9 to 5
Glad that you here and you glad you alive
Say Hip Hop (Hip Hop)
Hip Hop (Hip Hop)
