about

The lyrics are almost all by me, Aden Mendelsohn (except for the features and some of the choruses). This was my first mixtape. I recorded most of this in my room using a mic and my laptop. I did not produce the beats. I did the majority of the vocals (specifically almost all of the rapping-again, except for features and some choruses). I recorded this mixtape in late 2010, and at the time I was 15 years old.

Track Name: A.M. & Naz - I Walk
I Walk

(Naz)
I walk the hall of mirrors and saunter in a dream
Cling onto any songs that wander in the streams
which fondle the emotions that haunt the very scene
Then conquer every dawn I ponder to be free
Never bask in the forms of places up above
But I latch what we adorn on faces of a love
And cuz I won't let it fall at a violent pace
I plead my soul to crawl from its hiding place
Won't find my paths straddling the silver lining
I can't let my life shadow in the shell of compliance
Don't want tomorrow to pass while i'm still dying
And find the scars and the scabs braced and defiant
And a part of me vibing as my arteries tighten
While sorrow is surpassing like a conquering lion
So when adversity is present and hearts are in a twirl
I arm myself with thunders and march against the world

I fought the portly mourning to make the sobbing perish,
A sullen sodden soul, transformed to a solaced Seraph
With hoping hands reaching to what we often cherish;
and drifting on the wings of our concocted merits
I'm a soldier of burning love, music and blooming life
Celebrating my roots above, influencing newer heights
I swing with winds, cuz i'm dancing with my heart
Put a hinge on my dreams just to hang'em on a star
And as I rise to my flight I see'em tangent to my eyes
I soar into the night and see'em dancing from afar
So when adversity is present and hearts are in a twirl
I arm myself with thunders and march against the world

(Devilish Thoughts)
I walk these broken roads with hope nowhere in sight
The poems of my people become the verses I write
Overtaken by hatred I've been lost to all the light
Consumed by darkness as I walk into the night
As He whispers in my mind and dismembers my soul
A chill runs through my spine I think I'm getting cold
I watch others suffer in their sorrow I can revel
I'm lost and controlled by bad thoughts from the Devil
I run from my past but I can't out-run my guilt
A prisoner of these vast castle walls I built
The sound of the violins translates my heavy mood
Backed by the drums and the sounds of impending doom
A son of the Sun, the Man that's on the Moon
Incept thoughts in my head to watch ideas bloom
So as I giftwrap my soul and make ready to sell
I arm myself with Fire and march my way to Hell
Track Name: A.M., Osgood, AK & Naz - Close Your Eyes Remix
Close Your Eyes Remix

(Naz)
Open up, look around--tell me what you see
I see a school of lost souls drowning in their own greed
Brothers clutching eachother's throats – unprovoked
Fear has toppled our empathy, and our hopes
A world that's reduced to a scandal of insanity
And the candle of humanity's dismantled with our vanities
Vandals left us stranded as we're tangled in calamities
Strangling our dreams in the mantle of brutality
.....I couldn't but take a sigh
We're nothing but a number in societies deprived
Man meets power, then man meets doom
Cuz power blinded man from seeing that he's consumed
So if Ignorance is bliss, and happiness is within
I'll combat this goddamn system with apathy till the end
Those savages can win, I'm just happy to sur-vive
Hide in the mannikin within and close my third eye


(FigureOfStruggle)
I close my eyes, only I got the key to my mind
As I go inside and coincide with my thoughts
I see dead people, it's a blow to my pride
What happened to my home?
We got left behind
Moses split the sea,
and now we
Ride with the tide and we drowning in it
I'm a soldier, concrete battle field, God's my lieutenant
I fire at the devil but he laughs and says I missed
This is my consequence for lack of consciousness
With my back to the steel fence
I failed the monsters test
And so I close my eyes
And I...dream

(Chorus)

(AK)
I close my eyes and think of bigger and better dimensions
Everything I imagined seems so stupid and pretentious
I feel like I'm boxed in with all these phonies and pretenders
So persistent, I won't pretend they ain't relentless, yet resistant
These thoughts run in my head and I'm just trying to connect them
And my eyes are staying closed but slowly I start to suspect them
As if they were open all this time
But like a father and his son my eyelids will protect them
‘Cause the shit that they have seen
should never have been fuckin’ mentioned
So I close my eyes, and forgot about the horrors
The past don't matter, it's the future that's important

(Devilish Thoughts)
I wake up, to the sounds of their screams
Voices in my head seem to haunt all my dreams
Insanity plagued me, rap was my escape
So I bottled my fears and out came my mixtape
Now everybody who didn't give a fuck before
Suddenly all seem to respect me more
So as I dream of fame I close my eyes
I don't want the money, I'd rather die
The industry's a joke, full of fakers and fiends
Takin' our money so all we got left is our dreams
And my "mama told me there'd be days like this"
"Ambitionz of a Ridah" who was lazy as shit
But fuck it,

I searched for hope at the end of a noose
Fought the Devil within and I try but I lose
So I,
Dreamt of a world where I was free from these thoughts
Only to find I was really 6 feet deep in a box
Track Name: A.M. & AK - In The Morning Remix
In The Morning Remix

(AK)
Listen, baby seasons can’t describe you,
I swear that if you fall I'll be the first nigga beside you
And I ain't being desperate like I wanna get behind you,
Just wanna make sure you're fine and okay, cause girl you fine too
As soon as I help you up I'l spit some game on you
Maybe get your digits ‘cause I wanna hang with you
And when I come over you best not be frontin’,
‘Cause you know I ain't into huggin, I'm into lovin’
Let’s make it sum’in
Sleep well tonight, and tomorrow we be cuddlin’
Like we’ve known eachother for months
My promise for the night is that I know you gon’ enjoy it
I’m savin’ energy and I hope you won’t destroy it
Tomorrow I be lookin’ forward to a crazy mornin’
Breakfast, you cookin’ in the kitchen no clothin’
I creep up from behind and ask without a warnin’
With your permission baby,

Can I hit it in the mornin’?
Can I hit it in the mornin'?
Ay, can I hit it in the mornin'?
The sun risin' while you moanin'

And can I hit it in the mornin'?
Can I hit it in the mornin'?
Ay can I hit it in the mornin'?
The sun risin' while you moanin'

(Devilish Thoughts)
Baby words can't describe you, but I'll try
Swear her name was Mary Jane cuz when Im with her Im high
Come along for a ride I told her baby let's fly
Let's hit Paris, Tokyo maybe chill in Dubai
High from her smile cause without her I'd die
Inseparable, somethin' like the sun and the sky
Wonderin' why she stay with him but she cry
I can treat you better you know you can't deny
Then she looked at me with sex in her eyes
At that moment I knew I had her wet in the thighs
Legs open wide with her eyes on my prize
Temperature rised she's impressed with the size
Went all night flyin' high, she was soarin'
Sex on fire she was hot, we were scorchin'
And when we was done gettin' ready and goin'
She blew my mind and said

Can I get it in the mornin'?
Can I get it in the mornin'
Yes you can get it in the mornin'?
Rollin' 'round while you groanin'

And can I hit it in the mornin'?
Can I hit it in the mornin'?
Can I hit it in the mornin'?
Sun risin' while you moanin'
Track Name: A.M. & Osgood - Where Did The Music Go?
Where Did The Music Go?

Where did it go?
Where can I find it?
Don’t even listen to the radio
It’s like nobody tries (nobody tries)
That’s why nobody buys anymore (nobody buys anymore)
Is it still in stores? Let me know, where did the music go? (music go)

(FigureOfStruggle):
Searching for the common ground
Common sense was lost, nothing found
Damn, I used to love h.e.r
But now she the slutiest bitch I know
Damn, where did the music go
All I hear on the radio, cars and hoes,
Money, Lui v and Gucci clothes,
Fake rappers spitting freestyles written
Rappers tripping Contents missing, no lyrics
If there ain’t meaning then I don’t hear it
Boring talk bout money and cars
I wanna hear deep thoughts a nice beat and dope bars
Hip hop died for our sins
She aint alive to see the bullshit so called rappers bring
You chained her up with ya ice and bling
She used to be so pure and so beautiful
Lynched her they destroyed the culture
Now she’s left for the scavengers and vultures

Where did it go?
Where can I find it?
Don’t even listen to the radio
It’s like nobody tries (nobody tries)
That’s why nobody buys anymore (nobody buys anymore)
Is it still in stores? Let me know, where did the music go? (music go)

(Devilish Thoughts):
Where did the music go? It’s gone or so it seems
We traded self-respect for swag and skinny jeans
These fake fucks made me sick to my stomach
They killed rap, she was the one I was in love with
I'm sick of it.
Why doesn't anyone give a shit?
Fuck money I loved H.E.R in the first place
They took Hip Hop and destroyed her in the worst ways
It hurts the way rap was slayed, murked fucked and raped
Now she Dead And Gone but Murder Was The fuckin’ Case
Hold up though, do you think they got enough dough?
Then what they still prostitutin’ our love fo’?
They abused it
And now it’s so wrong
But let's get back to the music
And leave the other shit alone
I can feel it in me the music is so close
Lost in the songs I've started to lose hope
Real music's been gone I'm askin where did it go?

Where did it go?
Where can I find it?
Don’t even listen to the radio
It’s like nobody tries (nobody tries)
That’s why nobody buys anymore (nobody buys anymore)
Is it still in stores? Let me know, where did the music go? (music go)

(FigureOfStruggle):
Its dead yo its dead
RIP Hip Hop
I think as I sit with my grip locked
But you just thinking about what you can sell
You killed hip hop for a few checks in the mail
Took all her blessin’s
Killed her for tryna teach us a lesson
On a stairway to heaven
But she just slipped and fell
Corrupt by the devil
Hip Hop died n went to hell

Where did it go?
Where can I find it?
Don’t even listen to the radio
It’s like nobody tries (nobody tries)
That’s why nobody buys anymore (nobody buys anymore)
Is it still in stores? Let me know, where did the music go? (music go)
Track Name: A.M. & Osgood - Outlaw
Outlaw

(Hook x2)
Stuntin like an outlaw (Stuntin like an outlaw)
In the hood
Up to no good
Smokin on sumthin (Smokin on sumthin)
Sippin on sumthin (Sippin on sumthin)

(Devilish Thoughts)
Somethin like an outlaw
Watch my pistol go (POP POP POP)
Since I was that tall
I was a little cold
A great, a rebel in the modern age
Fuck it, a veteran sage
My sadistic ways have led me to misbehave
But I stay, filled with rage
Got a long story ahead of me so I turn the page
And my enemies, wish me death and pain
But Ima remain the hero throughout, and never change
Ima stay devout, gun on my waist
Knife in my hand
A stone cold criminal
An outlaw with a plan
I don’t wanna kill
I hope God will understand
It’s not the cape that makes the hero
It’s the heart that makes the man
But do I have one?
Seems like I got no love
But I got a gun
And I’ve had enough
So push has come to shove
I gotta get going, and show em that Im tough
I guess that’s why my soul is hollow
And my story, is one of sorrow
But fuck it, life is short time is borrowed
So Ima live every day, like there’s no tomorrow

(Hook x2)
Stuntin like an outlaw (Stuntin like an outlaw)
In the hood
Up to no good
Smokin on sumthin (Smokin on sumthin)
Sippin on sumthin (Sippin on sumthin)

(FigureOfStruggle)
Bullets fly, children die hit with strays
Thugs with ak’s, kids think its fun to tote guns, hey
There's some crips let me smoke one
We tired of this shit plus our dopes done
The ropes hung, khkhhh
Its suicide I tried but fuck it
Its hard to be a man, riding with my guns in hand
Screaming fuck this shit, two guns and a spliff
Fuck the pain I feel, uh huh ain’t nothing realer
I see a menace when I look in the fuckin mirror
Don’t push me cause I ain’t a killa but I wont hesitate to put a bullet in ya
I’ll fuckin kill ya, feel me? We stuntin like outlaws, but are we, really?
No need to break the law unless I have to, but since they label us
If you Arab Mexican or Black then you dangerous
Our races? Nah Mr. Governer YOU ENDANGER US.

(Hook x2)
Stuntin like an outlaw (Stuntin like an outlaw)
In the hood
Up to no good
Smokin on sumthin (Smokin on sumthin)
Sippin on sumthin (Sippin on sumthin)

(Devilish Thoughts)
A hero, I will never (STOP STOP STOP)
Until I fall
I promise I will beat em all
I will forever stand I will never (DROP DROP DROP)
Who is he?
The rootin tootin bitch buster
With him around, no one will ever suffer
The illest, sumthin like Bruce Willis
YIPPIE KAY YAY MOTHERFUCKER
I ain't even done yet
Ya see I still got one left
I told you I was a hero
Now I ride off into the sunset
Track Name: A.M. & Osgood - Hometown
Hometown

(Intro)
Hanad you found the perfect beat…I dedicate this to you…This one goes out to our hometowns…

(Hook)
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn

(Devilish Thoughts)
I keep my a map with me to tell me where I’ve been
And when I’ve been everywhere I’ll go back there again
So I won’t get lost and I won’t have trouble knowin’
Where I’m from, so I can always know where I’m goin’
But every once in a while I get cold and lonely
and sometimes it shows
They say ‘home is where the heart is’
so I pour my ‘soul’ in my rhymes and flows
A house is just a luxury that I have never known
So you see I never really had one place to call home
Always movin’ from one place to the next
(And the next, and the next)
Still I'm thankful cause I met many good people so I’m blessed
I guess if I really had to name a place you see
I got fam in Detroit residence in New York but I was born in DC
Not to mention I grew up in 6 different countries
So Ima give a shout out to the US, peace,
And a shout-out to India, Pakistan, Egypt, Nigeria, and the UAE
People ask where I'm from but it don’t matter long as I got my fam with me…
Uhh, none of it matters ‘long as I got my family

(Hook)
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn

(Devilish Thoughts)
From the East Coast of the US to the West Side of Africa
Back across the continents and all over the maps I
Been to every fuckin place that u can imagine
Got a first-hand experience of all the shit that’s happened
Places with little kids and hungry faces
Countries where they keep certain races locked up in cages
Lands where it’s either take a life or get yours took
I’ve tried to make a difference and I’ve done what I could
And hopefully I’ve done exactly what I should
But I just really hope that my message is understood
That we should come together and try to do what’s good
So I ain’t about East Side, West Side, I won’t rep my hood
And I ain’t got a town from which I’m local
The place I call my neighborhood is global
So you better understand Ima rep the whole fuckin world
My hometown ain’t in the US or the rest
Even though Somalia’s the best
It’s the whole fuckin world
So I pray to God every day
To show me the way
So that I can settle down
And finally find my hometown one day

(Hook)
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn

(FigureOfStruggle)
Injustice is evident, not the wealthy residents
Poor motha fuckaz getting robbed by the president
Puttin dead bodies in the ground hopin they heaven sent
Jobs don’t pay much so we hustle to pay our rent
Rules bent my tools meant for fixing
But we smashing the world with it
Crashing the roof in it, cool menace
Welcome to the frontlines of Africa
You gotta watch ya back cause someone is always after ya
Life’s hard when people don’t give you a chance to live
Men do all that they can to feed their kids
It don’t matter what gang your in
Cause no matter who you are they will jack you still
Watch your back or get killed
Blood spill, makes my stomach turn and get ill
We tryin to stop sinning, Im askin God for forgiveness
But this is my hometown and nothing is forgiven
This is my hometown and nothing is forgiven

(Hook)
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn
Memories are freesh
Round my hometooowwwn
Track Name: That New New Interlude
That New New Interlude

(Intro)
Okay…let me paint ya’ll a picture…here it goes

Okay a new day a new dawn-gettin up is a bitch
I sit up and I yawn, as I reach for my spliff
Take a puff of the grass, damn this weed is the shit
So obvious that God gave us all the trees for this
Cause weed is a gift
But don’t tell no one Congress wants to keep it from the people
But they don’t realize half the niggas smoke it cause it’s illegal
So I don’t know why they ban it when they don’t need to
And all the rappers say they smoke so all the kids say me too
This is the kinda shit I think about at the start of my day
That’s why every night ‘fo I close my eyes I pray
Now I gotta get to school so I can try to be cool
Like everyone else cause being yourself doesn’t help you fool
That’s what it feels like when they tell you shit’s wrong with you
20 years later they wanna do a song with you
But for now just try to get to school on time and do your best
If your late the teachers yell you wanna tell em give it a rest
I run with five minutes left-I’m losin breath
No fuckin choice-either make it or choose death
My list of fucked up places
Goes like White House, the U.S., hell, then school’s next!

(Outro)
Wheww, just in time…
Track Name: Fear Remix
Fear Remix

The world’s sick, aint talkin swine flu
People hate me, whatever I do
The air fills with loathin-its hard to breathe, Im feelin asthmatic
Im standin in the open and waitin for the approachin hate addicts
They protestin my excellence and picketin my inventiveness
Dont know why I do it, my incentive aint been invented yet
There’s a higher cause…It’s the word of God
Im meant to be doin this shit the best
But in this world creativity's frowned upon, and jokes are laughed at
But when the tears of the clown is gone who really has his back?
So tell me if some hate me why should I care? Let em hate
But someday I'll be great so fuck you to those who called me stupid degenerate
And thank you, especially, to those who always stood next to me
Know this-Im thinkin of you when I bless this beat
Thank you

Dont believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isnt new
So please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me

Never cried when big died, but I prolly will when Em does
He got me through my worst moments and his music still does
But shit nobody appreciates the misunderstood genius, just the talent-less fad
The average consumer dont give a fuck ‘bout the lyrics and thats just really sad
Meanin is nothin, melodies is substance, how did it become this bad?
It was art, cause it came from the heart, not the talk box
But what happens when the substance is gone will it all stop?
Or will it be replaced with what is today’s catchy, and tomorrow’s garbage
If the real music dies then I think I’ll be the one who takes it the hardest
I love this shit, cause it numbs the pain
If I couldnt spit, I’d prolly go insane
But when the song is done it all comes rushin’ back to me once again
And once again...

Dont believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isnt new
So please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me

Ayo fuck all ya’ll, ya’ll is the reason my feelings is gone
Ya’ll the reason I unleash my demons in all of my songs
Pour my emotions onto the beat
My mind clears, my soul bleeds
I can feel the pain
As it slowly dies…I close my eyes, hopin’ what I say aint in vain
I…am lost in music, this life I choose it Im responsible for the path I choose to walk
Tell me…why should I give a fuck if Im the subject of which people choose to talk?
Maybe I should give them a reason to
Maybe I should say somethin’ I been fienin’ to
Thank you, haters is my reason to, do what I do
And if I ever give a fuck ‘bout your opinion only then I will lose
But honestly I am a lil’ self conscious, sometimes I do let it get to me
But I will never stop even if my record flops until I rest in peace
I got a hole where my heart used to be, music fills the void
Until I am dead, hell even if I lose my voice
Until I am dead, music aint my job, music is my choice
And if u really listen to what I said,
You’ll realize…there’s meaning somewhere deep in all of this noise

Dont believe the lies
Look me in my eyes
Please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me
I remember you
This feeling isnt new
So please dont be scared of me, please dont be scared of me
Track Name: Pray For Me
Pray For Me

Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark
Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark

I look up I look down, I look left I look right,
I look all around, all I see is the absence of light
I stand knee deep in darkness
But I will not weep cuz I am heartless
Not even for those less fortunate
No matta what the cause is
Many a sleepless night, filled with rage
The story of my life, but I wont turn the page
Standin on the line between
ingenius n insane
A heart filled wit love is a heart filled wit pain
N life is but a dream from which we all wake up
It seems the end will come but if it does, do I give a fuck?
I guess that’s the real lesson
Clever metaphors mask the question
Do I really care if I end up 6 feet deep restin?
Wrote my story but, couldn’t find the best endin’
I said do I really care if I end up 6 feet deep restin’?
Made some choices, life ain’t fair now I’m second guessin’
I said do I really care if I end up 6 feet deep restin’?

Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark
Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark

And u know at they say,
A pill a day’ll keep the doctors away
Well I dont like bein in a hospital
So I guess I’ll down a whole bottle
Drownin in sorrow, will somebody please get me a fuckin lifeline?
I dont wanna go, this aint my time
I still need 2 fulfill my promise 2 mama, I told her-I will shine
So for now I’ll stay, I’ll be fine
But fate wudn’t have it, it wasn’t in the cards
I didnt have a hidden ace, I was fucked from the start
Well I guess that’s life, It’s a fight, for survival
U don’t wanna fight, well then u better get a bible
But as for me, I think Im stuck in this bout
But Im losin, Im one punch away from gettin knocked out
I dont wanna stay no more, fuck it, I’ll throw in the towel
I cant endure it anymore, I guess I just dont have the power

So please…

Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark
Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark

I cant go out that way, no, Im not gonna go
Im pissin myself scared but its not gonna show
Do I have it in me, shit, I dont know
But I do know dat Im not gonna quit, not any mo’
This is my story I choose how it goes
I choose my characters n I wont choose no hoes
Ima choose a heroin n hope dat she can save me
By givin me a legacy dats rite givin me a baby
A daughter, to show me wat its like 2 be a father
Or a son, to make livin in dis world less harder
I gave too much hate, I cant give any more
But I cant die now, I got sumthin to live for
Family, dog, how u gonna affect em if u gone?
Commitin suicide, shit, how u gonna do them wrong?
U gotta hold it down, for them, u gotta stay strong
So u see, I cant leave now I still got one more song

Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark
Pray for me, I need God’s help
Pray for me, Cause I aint been prayin for myself
Pray for me, God please heal my heart
Pray for me, before I get lost in the dark

Pray for me, please pray for me…
Track Name: Rise
Rise

I will never give in to the lifeless days
I will never back down from the problems faced
I will turn my back on the world today
I will rise
I will rise

Rise up from the ashes
Rise up and keep fightin’
Knockout lines for these bastards
My pen is Mike Tyson
They tellin’ me hold up and I won’t stop now
But every time I stand up I keep gettin’ knocked down
In my fight with life I fuckin’ lost to myself
In my fight life sucker punched me below the belt
Nothin’ ain’t right I feel like somethin’s off
But I won’t fuckin’ stop, until I fuckin’ drop
And I meant it I won’t give up I got too much to risk
I never cared before but fuck it it’s time I gave a shit
So I pull myself together n I pick up my pen
Spill my blood on the page n never be the same again
It’s insane I’ve been so lost I need a map
In fact I don’t know where I’d be if I didn’t have rap
I’ve been a sleepin’ giant too long it’s time to act
I’ve been on the sidelines too long but now I’m back

I will never give in to the lifeless days
I will never back down from the problems faced
I will turn my back on the world today
I will rise
I will rise

I’m 6 feet deep in misery
Wonder if I killed myself who’d be missin’ me?
Worried bout shit on which I can’t speak
A coward behind all the havoc that I wreak
Surrounded by so much beef I could make minced meat
Feels like I’m swimmin upstream drownin’ in shit’s creek
If I rap honestly then they call me weak
If I died tomorrow would I get an RIP?
Fuck it, fuck em all I spent too much time givin’ a shit
Fuck a handshake 1 finger is all these bitches get
All you cocks can keep sayin how my shit’s wack
I’ll put my finger in a box n send a FUCK YOU that’s gift-wrapped
The name’s Devilish but I come with a divine rush
Anyone who stands in my way can get mindfucked
Cause Ima make it to the top before my time’s up
I’m at the bottom so I can only rise up

I will never give in to the lifeless days
I will never back down from the problems faced
I will turn my back on the world today
I will rise
I will rise

Went from country to country, from slum to slum
So it don’t faze me, when I see a gun
This world’s chewed me up and spat me out
So I’m sorry if money n hoes ain’t all I rap about
And if I don’t give a fuck when these bastards shout
But criticize my lyrics n that’s when the mac’s come out
So back the fuck off, everyone just give me space
Before I annihilate the fuckin human race
This is for every kid who’s ever needed a damn hug
They don’t understand us it’s time to stand up
So the terrorists might bust
Americans rise up
Oil companies use our waters like a dump
Somalia rise up
Kick out these corrupt government fucks
Egypt rise up
Yeah, everybody look deep inside
It may look hopeless but we will rise

I will never give in to the lifeless days
I will never back down from the problems faced
I will turn my back on the world today
I will rise
I will rise
Track Name: A.M., Osgood, AK & Naz - Hometown Remix
Hometown Remix

(Intro)
Of my world, of my world, yeahhh

(Chorus)
‘Round my hometown, memories are fresh
‘Round my hometown, ooh the people I’ve met
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of this world are the wonders of my world

(FigureOfStruggle)
Poverty’s the disease spreadin’ epidemic
The Monster that eats my soul-Ignorance fed it
This creature’s won for too long, I’m out to behead it
The oppressors oppressing innocents
I swear, I'll make ‘em regret it
Struggle got me doubtin’ God
So it’s hard to stay spiritual
Everybody’s askin' for Miracles
It’s not what we need though
Gotta set straight the record
We just sheep to these people
And God is no longer the shepherd

(Chorus)
‘Round my hometown, memories are fresh
‘Round my hometown, ooh the people I’ve met
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of this world are the wonders of my world

(Devilish Thoughts)
I sit back and reminisce about the lands that I have seen
With memories of happiness I revisit them in my dreams
Envision my life's scheme-I cannot think of a setting
Regret each place I leave so I believe in forgetting
See I wanna keep the good times so my motto is flawed
It's hard to fit in to new places maybe I belong with God
Maybe, my home is heaven or is it really in hell?
I'd trade my soul for a home but I ain't got a soul to sell

(Chorus)
‘Round my hometown, memories are fresh
‘Round my hometown, ooh the people I’ve met
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of this world are the wonders of my world

(AK)
My memories are empty of this place I call home
But the freshness is within me it's my job to seize the throne
My hometown is peculiar, background inferior
I thought I was an equal when they said, “we were just foolin’ ya”
The only thing left, is to stand bold and stand tall
I represent the people that take shots I can’t call
These books are all your weapons
The guns are just misconceptions
The country you are forgettin', is the country I am reppin'
If you dont know your hometown then there are no further questions.

(Chorus)
‘Round my hometown, memories are fresh
‘Round my hometown, ooh the people I’ve met
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of my world
How the wonders of this world are the wonders of my world

(Naz)
I take a whiff, of the natural mystic in your air
If you listen, carefully, now you will hear
The drum-beat sounds, it’s the heart of my home
Through the lungs in the ground, I embark to my throne
The king, is back, to reign uncontested
The dream, is alive, you can't silence or oppress it
My home, is more than a place of residence
It's the birth of a journey-it's the place I represent
My veins and arteries transcribed to the Nile
An adjacent part of me is to die in your smile
I seek your progress, just to keep you spotless
Eat and breathe, the need, to speak your conscience
And if the time decides to take your past in a flood
I will bleed just so I can paint your flag with my blood
My home, my mother, I shall recover in your chest
I live by three words, Motherland or Death
Track Name: A.M. & Osgood - World Is Ours
World Is Ours

It’s a crazy world
A crazy world that we’re livin’ in
But we don’t really give a damn
Because this money’s for the takin’
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours

(Devilish Thoughts):
Rewind and replay this
My lines full of greatness
My mind is amazin’
This world’s mine for the takin’
My cool is ragin’
Ya’ll don’t know who you’re facin’
Anyone against me’s in for a rude awakenin’
Ya’ll claim u stirred the kilo’s
We the reason u heard of C though
The 3rd world heroes will murk yo people
We mostly good with a third of evil
My mind n soul were born a part
That’s why my lines ‘complexed’ like Bonaparte
But ya’ll ain’t got no listeners
So listen first
I spit on these pussies like I was liftin’ skirts
Walk around just flippin’ birds
Talkin’ shit n verbs
Oh ya’ll still feel hurt?
This is war I’ll take no prisoners
So reach for the sky n shoot down the stars
Mr. fuckin Universe couldn’t lift up my bars
My shit’s up in mars that’s why I got the coldest heart
Ya’ll came close but no cigars
Everybody knows this world is ours

It’s a crazy world
A crazy world that we’re livin’ in
But we don’t really give a damn
Because this money’s for the takin’
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours

(FigureOfStruggle):
The sound of bullets
Got me turning up my music, as loud as it goes
Let there be Light, as bright as it glows
Me and my life are sluggin it out
Im dodging the blows
When you see tears in my eyes
Its cause she hit me square on the nose
How can I play fair when Im fighting these hoes
Crazy world crazy life
Life’s a bitch, my crazy wife
But she mine and she fine
And when Im down she’s crying
Till death do us part, and we trying, yeah we trying
It’s a crazy world we livin’ in
My biggest goal is getting in
To do whats right forgetting sin
What chaper of the world is my life written in
Music is my minds motivation
I know that you hatin
They say that hip hop is run by the Masons
So I’m killin’ Satan, we ain’t makin’ music no more
It’s product placement

It’s a crazy world
A crazy world that we’re livin’ in
But we don’t really give a damn
Because this money’s for the takin’
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours

(Devilish Thoughts):
I got the whole world in my hand
A pearl in the sand
Unfurlin’ my plan
So serve my command
I got my eye on hip hop, she will be my girl
And Cudder said it best, this will be my world
It’s lonely at the top but I got enough friends
My world starts where the universe begins
We on top n we’re gonna live it up
This world is ours and we neva gon’ give it up

It’s a crazy world
A crazy world that we’re livin’ in
But we don’t really give a damn
Because this money’s for the takin’
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours
Everybody know’s the world is ours
