Track Name: Intro
Track Name: Nome De Plume
*yyeah yeah, we're back around again/rounding out the trinity
Intromish,hustle like rain to laser reyes
* the phrase that pays "bukue one what's next?" The letter head project or black fletch? Well...
at this point its time to pay homage to...the merging of two entities, "tion bukue"
* One name sums it up, both sides of the brain, blue - white collar maintain on both planes,
*More than an emcee / had to make room Clear the pathway for the new nome de plume
* First - mom given, last-self made, Grinding on dual levels, now its the high grade
* before - you knew me as either or..Depends on how you met me - sk8board or graffiti .
* fruitvale yard or EMB, just a portion...a side of me, but rarely peeped the whole skit
* imagine voltron / first as young lions/ -honing their craft / definin their path
* until the time was right when the planets aligned, then they came together synergized and combined.
*harmonized by design, group dynamics aligned as they found they complemented
* each other. Brothers of the same, important to the game, not knowing of the major changes coming on...* "the renaissance"... industry woes /, along with economic slowdown, body blows
* to the status quo, stifled the whole biz flo, but for me that was beautiful, The changing of the guard
* diversified talents or ya might get ousted, 
 said it and meant, & strived to document it
* 1st spoke upon it in 1 triple 9,I felt omnipotence to sign of the times to come

2.gotta be that way, total focus notice no sleep self inflicted wounds, gunshot alize or boones room, shits hard already. the temple of doom

5. its here, right here and now, I see it clear
6. If yo perceptual filter is effed up then tough luck

Preoccupation is not a cure , just a distraction.

Track Name: Callin' Shots
* soul controlling,
Neva folding the hand that's dealt to me
Its up to me to manifest destiny

* the rest can be, waiting in a jail cell
Of mediocrity,.... you know that's not me

* no sir ree, bob, that is in not my job
,job title Or career choice... far from it

* no runnin around dumbin down my ability
Here to build equity investing accordingly

* sweat capital
Combinin power moves, knowing who's who and who's not worth their wait in salt

* caught out there, strugglin earhustlin
Not moving a muscle as reputation is plummeting

* ja marcus russellin, folks see it clearly
That's why I let productivity speak for me

* now I let my credibility be the key
Opening the doors long before I knock

* shot callin yes, and still humble as a rock
I've paid dues, no talk, success leaves clues

* and I'm hear for you
Utilize me as a resource
Each one teach pathway is my focus

* - turnin the hopeless to hopefull by the handful
Through documented steps and the right tools

* - combined with true teachers who've...
Really live through....... what they're trying to teaching you

* and ascend on and on
No longer falling victim to venom we'll stay strong!
Track Name: Wantie Wantie
* I want it so bad, I can't live without it
Can't live with out you, I doubt it

* wants vs needs/ we caught the disease /
co dependancy, a state of emergency

* - addicted to what was prescripited
- drugs... pushed by pharmeceutical thugs

* so called health care tsk they could care less
Curing sickness- decreases profits

* so they medicate, sedate and supress
Masking the prob causin side effects

* nuff Side effects, as you try to fix one
It just multiplies to worse problems

* to fix, mo prescriptions increased profits
Vicious cycle, downward spiral

* now, whatcha wanted is now what ya need
Addicted beyond conscious decisions...


*I want it so bad, can't live without it
Can't live without you... I doubt it.

*I dont what Id do, if it it was true
I can't live, can't breathe w/out you

* but nah, no codependancy, we rise above
Posession has nothing to do with love

* true love as we know has been erased
by Fear of being alone, fear of being replaced

* fear of the alpha male stealin ya girl,
So you handcuff her, cause you don't trust her. Jealousy

* nothing but... insecure
disguised by " its just cause I love you so much"

* fallacy- and gurl you don't need a man
That treats ya like a 2 when you are a 10

* let that man go stopped trying to save him
Being alone's not as bad as being a victim


* wantie wantie needy needy
Don't really need have of dem believe me

* so addicted blown out of perspective
only things ya need is whatcha born with

* love is the truth, your love is king
Not tethered to a person place or thing

* thass why falling in love is so overrated
Id rather not fall, but share love with all

* deserving. upliftment of spirit
Through students, teachers and kindred spirits

* love if a currency, flowing none stop
If you hoard it ya kill the flow "bloodclot"

*ya aught not test, the powers of soul control
Be the love you look for then ya never at a loss

* then no matter the struggle ya still risin up
Smellin.. feelin like a million bucks!
Track Name: Come With Ft. Michael "Sluggo" Torrence
1. Come ooonn ...we must open our mind
What we've tried got us to this point
But to move farward we need to update

2. Upgrade the hard drive its our mind
Coommee ooonn relax and trust in us (yes)
Out with the old and "try something newww"

3. To get what we want in fact,
4.We have to let go of some habits that tend to hold us back

5. Comfort zones can be like shackles
6.Attached to ya ankles, rooted in the past

1"Come along"
the ego, is ya drug of choice
The little voice in ya ear, yelling loud and clear
To dig in.... stay put, putting up a resistance
To change,, maintain status quo keep it the

Ready or not change will come
Be prepared for what's yet to be seen,
beyond the horizon don't be surprised when

How things were are now extinct, forward thinking and 4 sights keeps us in sync

Death and taxes... are the only things certain
Along with the changing of the states of

Mind. Time forgives but never forgets
No regrets, the path was laid out for a reason

Come along and peep what's going on
Let's right as many wrongs and persist on and on,and be strong as can be - and fortify our legacy

This time and space is erased on a daily
Nothing but the present remains so don't dwell
-- sing songs of redemption, learn from our elder's stories they tell

And in the next view, look at the lickle yout
Not tainted by the doubts and the fear life... brings

Reality bites, and life stings
But my eyes have seen the miraculous things
Mr generous

Cleansing out my hatred with the sacred wealth

Common sense is not common currency

All so simple if we could see the catalyst

Cause you know fear and anger distorts logic

Peep the shock doctrine it'll blow ya mind..

Its been so long but yet just begun...
Verse 2

The combing of the worlds... deja bukue

* meeting of the minds... culminatin' of relations... 16 years in the makin. Takin'

All the internal prep work showing me how

* and who I am to become to this one
Young diety. She's my gravity to do it right

* keep it true... and all those other sayings
We be saying, mantra's we say to stay guided by the light

* --in other time to waste
Only time to invest, build and progress

* plant the seeds and reap the benefits
Of kharma
Arm the cipher with kindness

* yes! make a world worth living in
A place inspiring, for our songbirds deja.

Verse 3

*She's my.. amel lerrieux, my sade adu
My lisa bonet and its a different world today

*representative, of all that is free
One gyal synergy, queen born royalty

*aquarius... spawned outta earth and fire
Virgo - gemini - virgin- aquemini

* february 5th.... 2008
Her date of birth and a historic day

* obama took the lead in the primaries
Expanding the realm of possibility breakin'

* the types of stereo's that limited options
Now sky's the limit no one is stopping this

*freight train blazing up the track
Our guidance propells her , no lookin back

* ---its our job, our role, our position
To help the little misses realize her birth vision

A bag of chips to invest, in interest
Of bettering the brand

Plus cause you didn't say nuttin, ya just did it

***** I don't have ABNG's verse Transcribed ;(
Track Name: Relaxed Intensity ( My 2 cents)
* perception and reality don't always match
In fact can't see relaxed intensity

* on the surface, calm, meek and silly like
Skateboarding graff writing emcee who's livin life

* care free, behind screen you'll find an analytic humanoid, statistics, tipping point to freakonomics

* study that, mastermind with yoda then holla back,
Create equations extract opinion from facts

* identifying what's news and what's proganda, and who's paying for the slanted views we receive

* best believe, I've heard the conspiracy theories, but real talk
The threat to us is plutocracy

(Follow the money) don't be paranoid
Open our eyes. Before everything in this country's privatized

* that's just one of many topics that gets factored in this rapper's skin and membrane

* to maintain balance. Gotta see the dark to appreciate the light, and win the challenge

*of being optimistic, ...sharing love enjoying the insightful and annoying

* toying with your emotions, but fuck the doom and the gloom
I gotta crazy notion that the time is soon

* for us who were chosen to lead the way to
inspiration and know how to rise and break through

* walls, barriers and chains, shackle me not
We'll wake up and regain our rightful spot

* in the place to be whether the world or just our country
Blessed we,.... relaxed intensity :)
