Track Name: Lovely
Chorus
This is the story of a lovely lady x3
And now she livin' on a planet of her own

Verse
Henny, Weed, Crack, Blow
Yeah I said so
Hard times
Harder drugs
give my body
tough love
Can't see
Can't breathe
but it feels
good to me
Sippin on that bubbly
Now I'm givin' love for free
so those girls mean muggin me?
Cuz all they dudes is buggin me
Yeah I'm on that kryptonite
Anything you give tonight
I just wanna feel something
Know I'm real
and not nothing
If it's wrong
don't wanna be right
Just wanna party all night

Chorus
This is the story of a lovely lady x3
And now she livin' on a planet of her own

Verse
Liquid Love
Snow magic
Pop pills
while I'm at it
No! I'm not an addict
with this life
I've simply had it
when I batted
I struck out
Ma said
get your things and get the --- out
I feel like doctor strangelove
because I love these drugs
but I'm a stranger
to those I used to love
They call me hussy
They try and cuss me
But I got my drugs see,
and that's enough for me

Chorus
This is the story of a lovely lady x3
And now she livin' on a planet of her own
Track Name: Daylight (feat. Natalie Pierro)
Chorus
Daylight find me
Give me life
Take my wrong
And show me right x2

Verse
Common and Mos Def
They talk about the light
But it’s hard to find the light
In my very own life, like
I feel like the captain of a night flight
No auto pilot and I’m lookin like I might bite
The dust – cuz I can’t see the run way
Round trip ticket now it’s turnin one way
Lose control this wind is violent
And now my cruise control is wilin’
Jesus walks but do he fly with me?
Will he ride with me?
Through the wire and be
There for a lost kid struggling?
Just got buckled in
Now I’m kinda wonderin
WWJD
If he was tryna fly but he couldn’t see
Can I find the light that’ll guide me home?
Cuz the sky be lookin darker than the back of the moon check it

Chorus
Daylight find me
Give me life
Take my wrong
And show me right x2

Verse
I wanna be awakened
But I’m afraid to live
What if he askin for
More than I have to give
Telling me can’t blow weed no more
Or do I really have to go sleep alone?
I’m a toys-r-us kid
I don’t wanna grow up
Hold up
How I’m gon’ get through
The weekend if I can’t get to’ up
Po’ up the alcohol and sip sizzurp
get it in every day like pre-Beyonce jigger
What I’m gon’ do if I’m not Gucci-style wasted?
Do I gotta live my life, turn around and face shit?
I feel sick like a patient but imma be Spike Lee
do the right thing just do it like Nike
I been tryna find the light searchin’ in these bars
Just as smart as tryna find some brand new life on mars
Tired of failing all the time
Use the same excuse
Made so many damn mistakes and
Blamed it on that goose

Chorus
Daylight find me
Give me life
Take my wrong
And show me right x2
Track Name: Hate
Intro
I know you like to think you shit don’t stank but
The South stank harder than the stanky leg
We be keeping it one hundred in New York and Philly
Where ya silly ass rhymes will never make a milli,
You Yankee’s see we stylin’ on ‘you

Took ya girl hip hop now you getting’ jealous

HATE – WE CALL IT THE TRUTH
HATE – SAY IT’S JUST HOW I FEEL
HATE – FROM THE STREETS TO THE BOOTH
HATE – WE CALL IT KEEPIN IT REAL x2

Verse
Wasn’t raised in the ghetto
Not from the street
Don’t sell crack
Don’t make beats
Call me a sell out
Cuz I makin’ sales
Meanwhile you
You tryna make bail
Jail all the time
I'm on my CEO grind
Only bars I’m behind
They be servin' wine
Yeah my girl white and
We drama free livin'
She not a hood rat don’t
Take without giving
You’s an Uncle Tom
Imma leave your ass alone
Dippin’ in that milk
Something like an Oreo
Shuck and jive
Like a coon
It makes no sense
Like MF DOOM
Nah you ain’t the man
Cuz you pull up in the lambo
Got us thinking damn
Look at little black sambo
You was a part of the fam yo
You ain’t a black man
You's a white with a tan so
Imma show you

Chorus
HATE – WE CALL IT THE TRUTH
HATE – SAY IT’S JUST HOW I FEEL

Verse
Look at that chicken head
Yaki down her back
Olympic games
You can see the tracks!
Excuse me while I turn into Don Imus
Nappy headed ho’s you are not the finest
Edges look rough like sex
Relax your hair it look distressed GIIIIRL
Light skin b like this is why I’m cute
Skin the only reason why the looking at you boo
Thought you was the business, so naïve?
Typical delusions from a po’ house slave,
Look at that dark butt chilling in the corner
Mug stay mean cuz these dudes ain’t on her
Purple like rain rain go away please
And don’t come again with your daily hating
Girl don’t cry, wasn’t tryna be mean
But you lookin’ like Blade with a weave this is called

Verse

Chorus
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
To make good music for you always – x2

Verse
My hand to the bible
Head to the sky
Solemnly pledge
To always abide
By the rules of the real music makers
Not paper chasers
Time wasters
Fakers
Something - like a stick up
I give you all I have
Maury show style
percenta – jaaazz
Like one thousand percent sho
That you gonna love this tempo
Do you know?
What it feel like?
To let God take your hand and write
Sky color changing from old Michael Jackson
To new Michael Jackson, and I’m like
I’m gon’ make my music
It don’t matter if it’s dark or light
Radio’s gone rock it
I don’t care whether you hate or like
Turn off the phone, lock up the do
Fuck a club, I’m makin’ love in the studio
Ridin’ the beat, feelin’ on my flow
Stroking all the keys on my piano
Like phones this is my callin’ baby
From BK to N’awlins baby
Fly high like tailspin
Beats dumb like Palin

Chorus
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
To make good music for you always – x2

Verse
I ain’t concerned
With the Rari or Jag
Switchin’ four lanes
Cuz I can make music
While I ride the j train
And I write best when I’m a starvin’ artist
So broken hearted
Make flow’s retarded
And when I go live
Like the magazine you better vibe
Like ya’ll feelin me
My bass thump like heartbeats
So well done not raw meat
Sit backstage make a prayer
That ya’ll can feel how much I care
Step into the light
Like a Bronx bound 6 train
People start’ rocking
Goin’ that way this way
It’s like insane
I’m thinkin’ damn ya’ll missed me?
Ya’ll missed Sa’
mmus I’m back again to bless
The world with time-a-less perfor-a-mance Uh
I give you my pinky
You you give me yours
and we, we make a promise
Tighter than some wedding vows
I pledge my allegiance
To `all – all of my fans
When people want some good music
I’ll always say yes we can, cuz

Chorus
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
I – I – I make you a
To make good music for you always – x2

Stunting like my mommy

Got power in my body
Yeah -- I just made a reference to DBZ
Bet you never thought you hear that from a PYT

Shoulder leaning
With a 4.3

No fake glasses
My vision is imperred
I was studying fo’ classes
3-6 Mafia
I stay fly
Afroman
My IQ high
Cuz I’m in the league of the I-V-Y
You’d be too if you T-R-I-
E-D-ucation
Took me places
Like a vacation
And it’s spacious
At the top of the mountain
Sitting here bouncing
To my own tracks
Dead-president countin’

Get it shawty
Magna cum Laude
Still lookin good

Michelangelo
And I’m Don
Believe me I can pass a test
And I can still stop traffic in a freakum dress
Ain’t drop outta college but I’m West-style fresh
Ya boy ain’t got no brains, like the show I tell ‘’m NEXT
If he got a big eh eh eh vocabulary
I’m smashing monster balls something like I’m Halle Barry
Wanna be with me better be prepared cuz
I’m always on my E equal mc squared
I need a dude that practice tai chi
Look good like wifey
He actin’ type geek and I’ll make him a papi
And if he understand the flow
And he can stand-alone
Than he can handle dough
I got my people sayin’

Chorus
