Track Name: Super Hot Fire (I Am Not A Rapper)
Super Cold Remix

“I’m not a rapper”…nah, I’m a liar
Lupe Cold?? Nah, I’m Super Hot Fire!
Can’t put me out…I’m goin’ in
Like bowling pins, strike a match and watch me blow like winds

Set to detonate like it’s my time and not a second late
Bet the race, the torch is mine and y’all just second place
Desire burning and you can see it shine through every state
Yes I am LIGHT but I’m still a heavy weight

See, I bring the HEAT like Riley did with James for Wade
I got the temperature rising when I levitate
The game is crooked…you’ve been led astray
You the jury and I’m here to set the record straight

Turn it up, boy, I’m on it; What do you want?? I got it
So much drive in each verse you’da swear my bars were rockets
‘Cause I’m launching to the top, I’m the topic of discussion
Buzz be bubbling ‘case you wondering, money cuming like we fucking

Invested and I love it, call that balling on a budget
And its mind over matter, put nothing else above it
Bitch, I’m hot…hotter than an oven
I’m hot as hell, hot like mail, I’m hotter than the sun is

And I ain’t one to fuck with; I’m a fire breathing dragon
In the game, spitting flames, roasting rappers who be swagging
Yes, it’s MaJiK…so, hot I’m melting hearts
If I was there, the Titanic would’ve never fell apart

…I’m the cause for Global warming
Mother Nature can’t extinguish me, take that as a warning
I be blazing up the forest and I’m not just puffin’ smoke
Snorting lines the only time anything you do is dope

I’m no joke…I don’t miss, I’m never cold
I’m 24 at the buzzer, you D12 Choke
So…stay the fuck out my kitchen
I’m a flow cookin’ wizard puttin’ rhymes into a rhythm

With precision, every syllable’s hurting beats
Through a scorching thesis, call it lyrical third degrees
A burning speech that’s turning each track into infirmaries
I’m a god in the flesh, call me Hercules
Track Name: Let ‘Em Know
Let ‘Em Know

First off fuck bitches, fuck hoes
And if you was offended then you probably one of those
Sucka mu'fucka livin' under anotha stuck up
Like swag, swag, swag huh??…W'dup??
Oh you think you cool with your snap-backs, tank tops
Vans look like sneakers while your whack ass planks, stop
With the fads...kids will twerk their ass
Trending topic for a weak and now you back
…to the real world
15 minutes of fame is up, why the fuck you still hurr??
Oh you think I won't last, don't make me laugh
I ain't in it for the money and no it ain't no act! Fuck rap!
Game is trash and y'all ain't shit, y'all crap
I been doing this way before stacks, do the math
Poetry's first, being real is second nature
My holy trinity is a beat, pen and paper

Moving forth, of course I'm always on course
To be a better me than I was beFOUR
Making shit happen with my business partners
And now my name be buzzin' like a fifth of vodka
I'm star at the top like a Christmas tree
Going as high as I can before I'm 6 Feet Deep
Boi, 7 8 9 and if you don't wanna be lunch
Don't underestimate someone that's hungry as fuck
So ‘till my tummies filled up, I'ma keep at it
Set the bar to the stars and then reach past it
C- my flaws through each practice
A+ is what I'm after, never B avergage
I was meant for something great, that's my fate
And MaJiK's all about belief, call it faith
You can try to tell me different, I won't listen
Stubborn with my vision, sight's locked like a prison

Listen, it's my mission to build a better life
For my children like my parents were able to do for mine
And there isn't a fuckin' limit as long as I try
Until lie, faced up to the sky with closed eyes
I would die for my dreams, it is that fuckin' real
Most of y'all don't understand, over-thinking, sitting still
Warming up the bench, watching others play the field
Keep sleepin' on it homie and it will get killed
‘Cause the reality is this…time is of the essence
Opportunities come and go, if you find one, count your blessings
And take advantage of the chance, you might not get a second
Keep on pressing to the next one, be aggressive not acceptant
‘Cause it's hectic and expensive to just think short-term
Life is what you make it, this is confirmed
Dreams come to those who chase, they must be earned
Think you know it all?? You've much to learn

You ain't growing, then you dying, fall then keep on rising
Failure yields success if you keep on trying
Until I triumph I will chase the horizon
‘I can stare at the mountains or say that I climbed ‘em
And that is how we differ, the way we see a picture
You keep looking at the bottom and my vision's getting clearer
When I look into my mirror, I don't just see just a man
I'm seeing the potential of all that I am
See, I know just what I want, for my name to last forever
So before I leave this world, do something they'll remember
If you stand in my way, I'm prepared to go to war
Whack rappers, you've been warned, show yourself to the door
That's right, I'm cleanin' house, get wit it or get out
And shut the fuck up if money's all you ‘bout
This life is too abundant to concern ourselves with numbers
No matter how high you rack it, you gon' still end up under
Track Name: Why I’m Still In Love (Spoken Word)
Why I’m Still In Love

Because I’m an MC
So Hip-Hop is to me as you are to your parents
Even when you disappoint, it’s just too hard to stop caring
See, we know there’s potential and that there’s no such thing as a limit in skill
What you see is what you get, but look beyond the frames and there are images still
Just picture this; imagine a dozen roses, now imagine a dozen more
With your imagination, you can visualize more flowers than there actually was before
It’s like staring at the ocean and all you see is the top
But there’s a world beneath the waters who’s breathing don’t stop
The quality in the art is infinite like the numerical system
A beauty of connecting minds through the sharing wisdom
As I labor on the page painting these words of thought
All I ask is for you to appreciate the skill displayed through all works of art
And it always pains me to see others stoop to low-levels
Sell-out for instant gratification, never realizing
. .That they can't buy back what is took by the devil
But in just one moment. .one good line can rectify however bad I may feel
And that's why I still lover her. .always have, always will

Y'know what I'm saying?? When I get that feeling, that feeling that puts me in awe, makes me appreciate what a person just said.
That feeling like, "dayum, you hear that?? Did you hear that??". . .THAT feeling. It's more than just good music. .it's Skills.

Ugh, I flip words with my pen like the page was a skillet
Feed you multiple meanings 'cause that's what my phrases are filled wit'
Yes, I do to these words how kids be playing with legos
Mold each term like clay, looking like I get creative with play-do
Start with a letter, mix in some commas. .I'll even stretch the line
String along the end of each character with spaces like I’m etch-and-sketching rhymes
You gotta think outside the box if you want to heed unseen designs
Note the position of every letter and try to read between the lines
'Cause I try to make you think, see, my lyrics ain't for the obvious
Turn the paper into something else. .lyrically origami it
Words so fly lookin' as though each and every letter soars
The epitome of double-meanings, put my name in your verse and call it a metaphor
I plant a thought, but seeds ain't gotta spread to fill the sentence
Long as you can see-through to the point, I'm still A-Parent
I'm a breathe of fresh air, not just somethin' to smoke
But if you lookin' for work, check my track record. . .nothin' but Dope

Tell me I ain't!!

Fuck it, I keep going, bet I'd win in a race between that Energizer Bunny
Let him knock on the drums while I rhyme 'til the end of time, it's nothing!!
Man, I'm only getting better and better, don’t doubt this kid??
Ain't usually wit' the bragging, but trust. .nobody has an inner-voice as loud as this
Look, I'm as humble as it gets, I guess that's why crumbs is all I get
My stomach gets so full with rage, it makes me wanna run away and quit
'Cause I don't like the idea of settling for less than what I'm able
But what happens when you let everyone go before yourself is
. .By the time you get to the front, there's no more food left up on that table
They say that money is the root of all evil, I bet hunger was the seed
So many times I've glared at my empty plate wanting to slit the throat of my compassion and throw it away underneath my greed
Damn. .I'm sorry guys, I catch myself thinking a lot - see, my mind tends to slip
But whenever I get lost in these Bermuda Triangle's of Ideas
. .I remember that I'm the Captain, and no matter what, I must defend my ship
That's when I grip the wheel and steer out whatever cycles I create
Quit with trying to turn myself around, set my sight and just go straight
Stay on course with who I am, get back to my desk and let the ink tell my story
Write against the odds for the same reason Achilles went to Troy
- We’d die just to live in the glory
Track Name: TOO DOPE
Too Dope

Line for line…I’m too dope
Bar for bar…I’m too dope
Rhyme for rhyme…I’m too dope
Y’all already know…I’m too dope

[Verse 1]
Pardon my demeanor, confidence is gold medal
Olympic with the flow, bars on another level
Competition’s too sweet, they be dancing with the devil
My soul is priceless; theirs are two for one special
Line me up, inch by inch, I’m the dopest by far
They coming up short and I’m reaching for the stars
They ain’t standing tall, peeping game from their garage
I’m in the streets with artillery, aiming at Mars
Outer space with my thoughts, new world point of view
Fireworks with every spark, ideas going boom!
TNT of the mind, endorphins running wild
So fucking sick, what’s more contagious than a smile?
Cloud 9 with my passion, so in love with myself
Thank God for where I am, place above nothing else
In a heightened state of mind, different class, no swag
Invincible ain’t shit, Immortal’s where I’m at


[Verse 2]
Frank Lucas, Rick Ross; I am Pablo Escobar
On the mic, serving fiends with my products, no charge
‘Cause I got it like that, take a hit and I swear
I get ‘em hooked off these lines like fishes, beware
This ain’t for light hearts, this is for heavy minds
Deep souls with opened doors, bright thoughts that needa shine
At the top, chasing highs…new feats being climbed
Feel the drips trickle down; I drop jewels from the sky
…Reign supreme, I rain dreams
Cartel vision, running with the same team
Everybody eats, that’s the regime
Anything is possible, just carpe diem
It ain’t hard to see, I got beliefs and hope
And it’s a part of me, I gotta feed them dope
Bagging rhymes in these verses, cut up lines with a purpose
Then call that bitch crack like the breaks in a surface


[Verse 3]
Music is addiction…Hip-Hop is my drug
Needle on the record, melodies get shot up
Speakers in a table…Coke on a mirror
Flowing in the nostrl like sounds in the ear
Mind so clear, it’s Nirvana you can hear
A high so good, you gotta share with peers
Bump it with a beer, bump it, then a shot
Bump it in your ride while you beatin’ down the block!
Mu’fucka I’m on top…and I’m still getting higher
Spark an instrumental and I will smoke up cyphers
With a mic, no lighter…set booths on fire
All pure, uncut…every ounce of my fiber
Was crafted out of fate, made in a perfect image
One with the universe so there isn’t any limits
You can hear it in my lyrics, feel it in my spirit
Forever’s intrinsic…my Dope is Infinite
Track Name: Drinks Up ft. Ruby Nguyen
Drinks Up

Now that we’re here, we made it this far
We came from the bottom but now we’ve reached the stars
And we gon’ take a toast tonight
Came out of the dark into light

[Verse 1]
Step through the door, All Eyez On Me
Like Pac…Five shots…
…Thug Life…Why not
…Tonoght…Let’s rock!
They wanna know what I’m about
Round after round’s how I get down
My, my, my…shawty now
Be saying how she likes my style
And I ain’t like them other guys
So I tell her I lover her eyes
“Bet you no one has fucked ya’ right”
Then she turned ‘round and strut her thighs
She got me in the mood
Led me straight to the room
And y’know what we gon’ do!

Now that we’re here, we made it this far
We came from the bottom but now we’ve reached the stars
And we gon’ take a toast tonight
Came out of the dark into light
Now put your drinks up, up, up, up, up
Put your drinks up, up, up, up, up, up
Now put your drinks up, up, up, up, up
Put your drinks up, up, up, up, up, up

[Verse 2]
Put your drinks up let’s toast
Roll the weed up let’s smoke
We been puttin’ on that work and now it’s time that we unload!
Every day’s a celebration
Good vibes...don’t ever hate it
High as fuck but never faded
Drunken moments never waisted
I was wonderin’ what’s yo’ name
I ain’t into playin’ games
And I hope you feel the same
See…I must be honest
I…can’t make no promise
Love…is not an option
You…got my thoughts in
Contradiction and now I’m twisted
Heart and mind’s in disagreement
And I don’t know who I should listen
To but baby, please believe me!

Now that we’re here, we made it this far
We came from the bottom but now we’ve reached the stars
And we gon’ take a toast tonight
Came out of the dark into light
Now put your drinks up, up, up, up, up
Put your drinks up, up, up, up, up, up
Now put your drinks up, up, up, up, up
Put your drinks up, up, up, up, up, up
Now put your drinks up, up, up, up, up
Put your drinks up, up, up, up, up, up
Track Name: Bloody Hands ft. Sonny_B
Bloody Hands

FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up

[Verse 1]
What it do? What it is? MaJiK ain’t no trick
Bang that jungle music and go bananas in this bitch!
Dance like you the shit and fuck who be hating
Put your hands up and feel the good vibrations
Yeah…I wanna see your body move
Mami groove, rockin’ loose, and act a little naughty too
The whole club watchin’ you and they all follow suit
Living life on the ledge so y’know we got the juice!
On the mic I show and prove, puttin’ crowds in a spell
Break necks, bop heads so yes, I rock well
My flow is top shelf, ice cold and hot hell
Turn Hip-Hop back up, watered down does not sell
If you real and you know it, lemme get a soul clap
I’m feeding off your energy so don’t hold back
Get it poppin’, get lost, let the music take control
Feel the world unfold with the rhythm in your…soul

FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
SBC be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
SBC be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up

[Verse 2]
Now tell me, who got the rhymes that’ll get you off your feet
And the flow to make you bounce as we hit you with the beat?
I’m a beast so I’ma feast, see I eat instrumentals
Melodies and high-hats, bass and the treble
Wildin’ out on all levels, submerged in the sounds
You can scream all you want but your voices are drowned
Out by the music, keep jumpin’ to all tunes
While I have the DJ pump up the volume!
Look…I’m an MC
And if you don’t know what that means
Listen close, here it goes, moving crowds my MO
Get ‘em loud for the show going outta control!
…this the time of our lives
With our heads in the clouds, hands high to the sky
Caught in the moment, we dancing with the stars
Setting fire in this bitch with the passion in our hearts!

FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
SBC be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
FMG be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
SBC be the crew, put your bloody hands up
Bloody hands up, bloody hands up
Track Name: I Know You See Me ft. MacMatic
I Know You See Me


[Verse 1]
24/7 hustle, it ain’t a option
365 days, I stay clocked in
Yeah, no sign of me stoppin’
I got the green light, you just parkin’
…And now everybody watchin’
Hot shit heading to the top like a rocket
I gots it locked up like a locksmith
You coulda-woulda-shoulda bitches can’t knock it
…’Cause I’m doing me
Serve any MC any day of the week
Lyrical fiend, all my statements OD
On dope lines…cocaine on a beat
Uuhghghg…and my flow so ugly
Can’t nobody touch it..it’s nothing
…But I know you see me
I know ya’, know ya’, I-I know ya’ see me!


[Verse 2]
Who better?? I’m too clever
When I put words together down to every last letter
No cents?? Not ever, I’m currency driven
Always tryna’ do better than I’m currently livin’
…And I wouldn’t do it different
Goin’ Gaga like Rihanna, pushing to the limits
With pen to the page like pedal to the floor
100mph, always writing more
And I don’t slow down, I stay on my grind
All the time, pennin’ rhymes, chasing these dimes
Honeys and Hundreds, they stay on my mind
‘Cause Death is Promised, one day I’ma die
….So do I need anotha reason
To inhale opportunities before I stop breathin’??
…I’ma give you my secret
Work hard…make it look easy
Track Name: Flexin’

Hol' up, hol' up…stop the press
This just in…MaJiK ‘Bout To Flex!
On the best…yes…16 reps, 3 sets
And since they sleepin' on the flow…no rest
I'm killin' ‘em, who real as him? Fuck your plans like Gilligan
You Phil and ‘em, I'm iller and fresher than Prince William
See, I don't fit the mold…I don't think they know
I bake my own bread and they just get the dough
Yeah…employee, employer
The difference is unlimited... Your money is definitive
You steady chasing presidents …I'm all about the Benjamins
So My money see is infinite... And I'm gettin' it like orders
Four words...I'm the fucking boss
I'm thinkin' 'bout returns, never 'bout the costs
I'm lookin' at the interest, you look at what interests
You...consume and I am the business

…said I’m flexin’
So I’ma Flex…
…And I’m flexin’

I said...I'm flexin'...check the tone
This is the result of setting goals
Always working out the mind...in each verse and every rhyme
You can see the definition in the words of every line
10000 hours…that's the law
While y'all was jackin' off, I was at practice, augh
…Goin' in on these pages
Like Kobe with ball, I'm lookin' to be the greatest
Don't hate it…actually, it don't fade me
Call me what you want, just don't call me lazy
You crazy if you thinkin' that I is
I'm all about commission, if I don't get it, I can't live
So bitch get the fuck off my dick
Haters need to sit and cut out that lip
...I'm as real as it gets
Wipe my ass with your opinion, now you feelin' my shit

When it comes to punches, you don't wanna tussle
I'm a classic mustang...all muscle
Closed minded fucks need to step out your bubble
I’m thinkin’ out the box, out this world like the Hubble
You see me shining… bright like a star
These other rappers gassed, all they talk about is cars
I wonder how far that gimmick’s gonna take you?
Stunt while you can, in 15 minutes, they’ll replace you
Me, I stay true…an MC in its purest form…
An original never conformed to the norm
…1989, I was born
About to take the whole world by storm
On tracks, I fuckin’ spazz…do the math
A quarter of it’s flow…lyricism ‘bout a half
An 1/8th of it’s cadence...16’s all rap
Cook it all together…100% crack!
Track Name: Rocketeer ft. Ruby Nguyen
Rocketeer Remix

[Verse 1]
I’ma take you to the top
Ain’t no telling where we’ll stop
Watch the rockets go over obstacles
And I’ll show you nothing’s impossible
‘Cause when you with me, you will see
That dreams come true if you believe
We two stars in the making
The world is ours for the taking


[Verse 2]
Put your sear belt on, we ready to launch
And where we headed is wherever we want
No matter the distance, the sky’s the limit
So that means there isn’t ‘cause the sky’s infinite
Get it?? We seizing the day
And goin’ up, up and away
Taking flight on this rocket
So say goodbye to the bottom


[Verse 3]
Now, I ain’t ever been to space before
That’s ‘cause I ain’t had no one to show
The world, up there’s a different view
Bet you never seen the dark side of the moon
Maybe share a dance on the rings of Saturn
Count the stars and find a pattern
Or make love atop of Venus
Take my hand, let’s unlock the secrets
Track Name: Breathin’ ft. Marlon D

See, I try to live free but life’s got me in it’s hold
Grippin’ on my soul and I don’t know
Just how much more of this that I can take
Lord, take me away to some place safe
Please? I’m on my knees
Hands masking my face, I ain’t got no cheese
Nothin’ to smile about, I am not at ease
And when my passion burns out, I spark my trees
Just to keep going, I know that seems hopeless
But the high lifts me up and slows down these moments
So that I can seize on it, I’m just being honest
In this altered state of mind, I can see promise
Like anything is possible with just a thought and so
To the top I go over obstacles
Just give me another day and let me live my life
And I swear, I’ma do it right this time

Anotha breathe, anotha second, where life gets so hectic
Days are too long and at nights you’re so restless
Fight and then forget it, mind is inattentive
As your soul remains lost right where you left it
But you can’t stand to look at the man who’s shook
In the mirror, it’s gettin’ clearer what the fears have took
From you…I know…I’ve been there too
And I know, nothing’s worse than not knowing what to do
But trust, it gets better, pain ain’t forever
If you make it out the storm, you can take on any weather
I swear…there’s a point to it all
You were made to get back up anytime that you fall
And it’s crazy ‘cause you’re scared that maybe if you dared
To pray he will be there to save you from despair
But have a little faith, just make it through the day
And I promise…you gon’ be okay
Track Name: Young Love ft. Lloop & Zeke Dillinger
Young Love

Hold up shawty, wait a minute…slow down
Who’da thought that you and I would be on separate roads now
There was no doubt in my mind, at the time
Adolescence thought we destined, mesmerized by your essence
You was everything that I thought I wanted
I was caught in teenage logic, thought forever was a promise
My first kiss, my first class, my first this, my first that
Can’t believe what you taught me would have this impact
On my life, I still remember, jumping on those steps
Where I held you in my arms, you put your head on my chest
In that instant was forever, and infinite moment
Words spoken through our motions and silence was golden
Though that will never fade, memories remain the same
People change, appreciate who’s in your life every day
Two people are acquainted, best friends become strangers
But love continues on through the ages

Young love, my young love
Every minute of the day it’s you I’m thinking of
And no one can compare
To those little moments you and I will always share
Baby, I know and uh, you know
That a piece of my heart you can always call home
And y’know, y’know that this will be forever our song
Track Name: Shinin’

Turn off the lights…we shining
Bright…like diamonds
C’mon, c’mon…we rising
So high…we flying
Don’t dumb it down…we lighting
Up…the sky and
Turn off the lighs…we shining
Bright…like diamonds!

[Verse 1]
Y’all ain’t seeing like me…vision too clear
Think I’m rapping circles, what I’ve written is spheres
360 point of view, my perceptions astute
Make the most of every moment, not a second to lose
Every statement is candor; the good and the bad
My life is just that, success and mishaps
All put into these raps to see what my minds like
Picture the results, 20/20 hindsight
Yesterday’s Tomorrow man, today, I follow plans
So my future self can gander back at all I am
And stand proud, dignified by my efforts
Lived a life to be better than the times I didn’t measure
Up to my potential, reaching new heights
Celebrated ‘cause we made it, beneath the moon shine
Tell the world to dim it down, we brightening it up
Illuminating minds with the light in us


[Verse 2 - ]


[Verse 3]
Passion fuels the heart, Soul full of spark
Mind at peace, it don’t matter where I start
See, I’m aiming for the stars, since we already are
Spreading light in all directions with luminous bars
State of mind, out this world…larger than life
Imagination never ages…sharpen my sight
Stay focused, stay patient…affirm my goals
Midas touch on the mic, flows turn to gold
Never waiver under pressure, diamonds get made
Come up clutch in dark times, my mind lights the way
See I’ve seen the other side and it’s not my place
I’ve been to rock bottom, now I float through space!
Conversing with the cosmos, ping pong with the comets
Dancing ‘round Saturn, having races with the rockets
Staring contest with the sun, at the apex of my game
Now watch me blowing up…Big Bang

Track Name: Do It For Myself
When your back’s against the wall
And you cannot face the fall
After giving it your all
You stop living for tomorrow
Trapped in a moment of feeling hopeless while your soul is
Wandering around lost in the open just going through the motions
…Blurring visions with the potions
So potent, you begin to lose focus
And everything you ever did
Did it ever mean a thing??
Maybe to them it never did
But for you, you’re better since
They let you go ‘cause truth be told, they held you back
You’re beautiful and no one else determines that
Lesson learned, shake it off, leave it in the past
You were burned but like a Phoenix, rise up out the ash

I was tryna’ be someone for somebody else
Now I do it for myself x3

When your best just doesn’t cut it
And they’re thinking nothing of it
When it’s hard to make ‘em love it
And you’re close to saying “fuck it”
But nu-uh, you done came to far, what the fuck they take you for??
They tryna’ rain on your parade, it’s up to you to make it pour
Give them all your heart and soul until they cannot take no more
And then it’s back to the lab until you cannot make no more
‘Cause you’re something they ain’t used to
They just hear Rapper and say “You too??
There’s a bunch of you on Youtube”
Nah, homie, you are you, do
You and no one else, fuck ‘em if they don’t respect it
Go ahead and ask for help but trust me, homie, don’t expect it
I know it’s hard for you to try when you feelin’ like you’re so neglected
Just keep it real with yourself; I swear it’s so much better

Track Name: Success Is Revenge
Success Is Revenge

Society told me that I should be a lawyer…
Or a doctor, I’m sorry to disappoint ya’
But I thought that I ought ta’ do what I wanna
You can let them write your story but I’ma be my own author
Parents stressing, every second, get yo’ act together
Pen a sentence; ask the question, can I rap forever?
Yes! It’s more than music, this shit is therapeutic
I would lose it like remotes if I couldn’t share this movement
I’ma do it but they doubtin’, see the hate in their eyes
They hollerin’ and they howling, but they snakes in disguise
I cut the grass, came down to earth, the smoke has been cleared
They don’t wanna see me blow ‘cause they ain’t going nowhere
That’s what they don’t get, they be trapped by freedom’s twin
I can’t stand to be complacent, so I’m always dreaming big
Ask me what I do it for, I’m tryna’ aid the kids
Success is not an option, it’s the only way to live
We was raised about the same but with age some things changed
I’m still down to risk it all and they just wanna play it safe
But that ain’t me, crunching numbers…or typing at a desk
I ain’t dissing your careers but I won’t settle for nothing less
Than leaving marks on this planet, when I’m gone, they gon’ remember
That infinity is just a thought and MaJiK is forever
…when I’m gone, they gon’ remember
…Infinity is Just A Thought…MaJiK is forever
Track Name: Forever On…
Forever On Some Fly Shit

…I want more than just the glory
I’ma tell you where I’m going but I’ll start with my story
Look, I grew up good, never in no hood
The suburban life most wished they could
Have but I’ll admit that I was selfish
Took for granted what I had, wanted more, I couldn’t help it
See, I did what I was told, I mean, most the time
And when I didn’t, a little mercy’s what I hoped to find
But I gotta thank my parents, they were fair and they were just
Everything that they did, they did it out of love
Taught me with good deeds came rewards
And bad behavior was punished, pick your wall
Dad sold computers, moms did the tax
Weren’t rich, just technologically advanced
So I’m humble when it comes to these little gadgets
What my friends didn’t have, I usually had it

The example that they set was that of hard work
They came here to live their dreams and now it’s my turn
…But it took me some time
‘Cause for the longest, I was dealing with the fact that I could die
At any moment, so to cope with, I was zonin’
Only stress that I had, I was smokin’
Now I’m floatin’, 5 years between school, work and homies
Hated being at home but no idea where I was going

…’Til my eyes finally opened
Reevaluated my reflection in these poems
As I look at the years when I was a stranger
What I called “not giving a fuck” was just misplaced anger
At the world…’cause I was the nice guy
Who never got the girl that I liked
…So all I did was feel sorry
Compensated for the lonely void with a bunch of parties
But no amount of liquor could blur out the fact
That I lost sight of my future being caught up in the past
Wondering why it couldn’t last when it was staring right at
Me in my face and now it’s, no more looking back!
… it wasn’t the world, it was me
Seeking approval from people I didn’t need
People who couldn’t see the person that I’d be
They kept fighting with the vision so I threw ‘em the peace!
Track Name: I Am Not A Rapper (Spoken Word)
I Am Not A Rapper
Just someone who raps
I’m a poet to the English Language and the feet to my pen when it runs on the pad
Trying to escape the chaos in my mind
Attempting to reach the answers at point B from point A and the only way I know how to get there is by writing these rhymes…Finding the line…That connects my past to this instant
So that it can direct me towards the future after I finish…The thought
I’m the voice to the sequence of words I’ve put off
Caught…in the moment, I bite my tongue before I speak in fear of saying something wrong
I’m a sponge absorbing every experience, all the stories and accounts, each bit of information the world has to offer
Throw it all into a melting pot and water….My soul like the seed my father….Engrained in my mother’s womb, I foster
I’m a child in a grown man’s body because I haven’t lost my sense of wonder
I still stare up at lightning and count the seconds to hear the thunder…Scream for recognition
Because I too just want to be heard, bare witness….To a soul who just wants to be loved
No kid grows up….Wanting to be different until they realize that they are
I’m a star
99% Oxygen, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Calcium, Phosphorus
1% all of it…makes 100% WILL
So don’t tell me I’m not until….You tell me what you’re made of first
I’m a protector of our earth
I see the way she’s treated, it’s undeserved…Hurt….By men who’ve long forgotten that it was her precise chemical balance….That allowed for the exact circumstances….For us to be planted
And we continue reduce her life producing resources disguised as advances….And I can’t stand it
Because I am human
Obsessed with improvement
See, I know my flaws, I’m aware of my faults but when I look in the mirror I see a student…Willing to ask the hard questions
They said life is a test; tell me, why are we’re all guessing?
We count every second…Before we can clock out but not enough of our blessings
I’m just one person
But if I can do my best not to worsen…The life of another then I’m not so worthless…And if I can be of value to just someone else, it’ll all be worth it
So I spend time working…On the right way to make these words fit….Like a key into your head and unlock your potential
I want you to know you are special…And that you can do anything you want if you hard work and practice
Just access your Joie De Vivre
A joy for life beyond ends by a means…And if I can move a crowd when I let my pen speak
Then I am energy…at the root…MC
