I didn’t come into the hip hop game to change it, but rather give a message of hope, peace and most importantly love.

Biography

When X-DOZ hit the rap scene with his deafening group, the X-CLAN THANG in his high school days, all hell broke loose. Why? you may ask, well, primarily because there had never been any young hip-hip groups in IDEAL COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL who revolutionized the sound of hip-hop music as fast as they did.

They are the only group who knew how to precisely give you lyrical food for your mind while simultaneously making thongs shake and drop (check out the meteoric rise of their platinum demo single"Tha breaking Atomz").

Plus, they redrew the rap map and became an influential force in the musical genre.
Now, as one of the toughest and tightest emcees to ever grip the mic, X-DOZ, tha X-CLAN THANG's front man, is on the move to jump-start his solo career in Nigeria with his unprecedented album "THA FIRST EPISODE" which due to its brilliance and a tight production by DAFLOW, is destined to go down in history books.

The infamous X-DOZ "Okunlola Olufemi" has built a career on the backs of wanna-be wise guys unaware of his lyrical dexterity. He has been since early childhood.
Word on his witty rhyme prowess began spreading 9 years ago as a potential-laden twelve-year-old rhyme animal clawing at opponents on a battlefield. Its not that his opponents were lyrically weak in any shape, form or fashions, as they would come to battle equipped with some 16-bar ammo,It's just that the born to kill X-DOZ would extinguish whatever little fumes they'd create with fire lines.

All from the top of his head."If anybody was winning a battle it was me",says X-DOZ confidently in reference to his early street, lyrical brawls.I had millions of rhymes that just tore people's head off.

Lyrics

Still I Rise

Written By: X DOZ

INTRO:
You can't run me down, cuz on this block I'm gonna keep it locked.
Waste no more of ur idle time cuz like the sun X.D.O.Z Still Rise!....STILL I RISE

VERSE 1:

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

HOOK
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

VERSE 2:

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
Aint no stoppin to ma shine this time.
Still like morning I rise.

REPEAT CHORUS

On The Ground

Written By: X DOZ

[INTRO:]
Ladies and gentlemen, this is 2 double 0 3,

[VERSE 1:]
See my true creativity leaks like a slick freak
X in the rap like medelling thang, I aint gone shift no bling
I play my rap thang and I started to fling
I strike mind and target in film I play it with rap and I splat your back,
I'm not to be trusted
and i spell that out with a fake smile and funny stare
It's not fair to tell you that i tell more lies than Tony Blair
I've got a ferocious heart combined with roars from my thunderous head
and I'm hiding all Sadam's weapon of mass destructions under my bed
all hail the kid..anyone who can't clap..I go impale the flid
and plant in you a destructive seed,
all verses is writen again,
letz see the which mc will flee the fastest, like sending
troops into battle wearing nuttin but a neon target and a gun
that looks like a lawn tennis racket.
I'm a freedom act, I'm known to breaking locks and chain
All hail when I get out of my cage no number of mc
could survive the rage
u need to see me battle rhymes garbage and their interpreters
live on stage, wait till the rap lord hit ur phraze
cuz i dunno wat tha f**K u think u play, I'm spittin this sh*t
directly into ur faze.

[CHORUS]
X is on the ground wack emcee been turn around

[VERSE 2]
I'm coming with an hard act like a touch of spice
ready to set it on the ground with ma lyrical might
be on the line the rap sultan is about to spit ur rhymes
Im too mean to be dissed cuz i sting like bees
that scares all 'em to face me in the ring
cuz i come with sh*t too tick, and locked it down for no reason
than just to spit for fools and cause terror for y'all
throughout this season, I'm too strong and firm
none of you can ever uproot me from this ground
call me tha lyrical highness, that set your eyes ablze
and cause you a broad day blindness
X DOZ slam tracks with too much brawness,
just to make u feel ma lyrical brawness
You can stand the ground with me cuz of my rawness
AND that make you think thats the phillies in me
come clean like a medicines used for crack spot
I shot ur stunt-gun with a bare slippers
I'm a rhyme snipper, tha lyrical cipher and X wanna eat ur supper soon
Throw my track like 'em bending the ball
I come tough like lyrical hawk, kicking the gall
X dey yan lay low I aint moflow this is Daflow
X dey yan everybody na freestlying dey go,
It's ma time to be mean dare u to come close to ma dip crib
This is time for flow (Come.. Common)....... GO!

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[VERSE THREE:]
this is my word again for y'all who think X is Insane
I don come again but this time na to come teach una lessons
How dare you call the gods invane, not knowing the seriousness
of his name as blessing, we moving in unmarked van
disguised as a light tan with plastic phasers in a rubber hand
begin take shape and form cuz when the gods get on it
we gonna crash your college doom!
I broom sweep the room wack emcees halt when colt start stomping
thunder stike ur mind with a jolt, your stamina level is low
like a volt from the roll. So wack emcees u better be firm
cuz the DOZ is gonna blow off your defense
You don't have to relent your strenght, cuz this
party song aint suppose to dey make una sweat
itz ma testament to play heartricks in rap
X is about to spit it all no doubt give it up to the mic lord
itz a way u gonna die u dont have a choice than to roll along
Put your Phelim Fingers up and X gone fresh along
we dey make rhyme go party and everybody put it on
Itz me D. O. Z dey yan lay low, don't u f**k with me

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[OUTRO:]
Yeah you don't have a choice than to give it up to the lyrical being

Fades with Instrumental.

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[VERSE 3: POPE]
through the misty eyes i see the lonely sky
lonely road to babylon, heaven knows pack my bags tonight

where all eyes dim and all gold GLITTERS
say farewell but never say goodbye
days we spent apart is a friend that trash my *** so hard
that make me lean that things I've done is bad
every bit of my heart tears me further apart
I am lost and alone in the dark gurl let behind
how i miss her now is my saddest hour please don't make me cry
cuz the plan was to have you as the mother of my babies

please don't wave bye come back I'm still here
take this message to my babe say Pope still luv her.

[TALK: POPE]
Hey girl sorry for the pain i caused you

whether signed or unsigned x just don't give a damn
itz tactically warefare so get prepared
itz right here hope u come fully with ur shield and hardware

REPEAT CHORUS:

VERSE 2:
It all started in the winter of 83,
my mum gave birth to nuttin but an holy seed
my inner voice was a prisoner waiting to be freed
i drop tight and hard lyrics like a destructive seed
now 20 years after here to silence the luaghter
if no one is real why shouldn't X DOZ i have ta
let me tell u about the way i finess..
Every microphone i touch i bless and every microphone i bless I'm touching
itz like the meaner i look the harder i'm clutching
you can't run from me cuz itz useless when ur dodging
I'm the one who drop knowledge in a rage
forcing fake ass to turn the page you locked me in a cage
and i just burst ur gauge close lining u lyrically in a mid rage
like an angry sage I've been working since the age of juveline
dropping continous hot beats and a fat style
walkin tall yet stolen profile and now ur in court
time get ready for the trial.

REPEAT CHORUS:

VERSE 3:
It baffles me how wacks mcs got guts to spit at me
when i wanna spit back they saying X we aint battling u
my style too skill to be a half of me
You couldn't be half of me even if ur mini me
or rapping on ur both knees,
if u're rain I'm a paraplet, army fleets starts to retreat
faster than record breaking track athlet
I outsmart cats like Jesus did the pharases
I'm lyrically phat don't need gravity to stay on my feet
I shine the brightest rhyme is my feet and my kit
Ever since the earth creation I've been shining
God said let there be light and i started rhyming
That's why cats should never battle me
I'm the first out to there to be fly like a petrodis
me and the mic is connected like ur hand and ur wrist
my style is like a lighhtning flashes
cuz after i strike emcees are reduced to a pile of ashes
I don't strike twice in the same place cuz
the first time i strike i get ur frame erazed.

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE:

OUTRO:
X DOZ: Hey Yo daflow
DAFLOW: Watz up X
X DOZ: Are u pondering wat am pondering?
DAFLOW: Han hun
X DOZ: Letz get ready for the next track
DAFLOW: what happens in the next track?

X DOZ & DAFLOW:han hun! Taking over the radio! For real!
