about

Thought it was time for a change. So I bring to you my new persona, The MoonShooter.

This is a concept I've had since I became a rapper, but frankly never had the skill and resources to even coming close to pulling it off...until now. Hopefully you will not be disappointed. This is not the usual Dragon, or Skull Kid, but those personas have long dominated all my tapes/albums, especially and most recently, The MΩΩN series.

Don't worry though, Dragon/Skull Kid-persona fans, I'm still me, and that aggressive spirit makes occasional appearances in this series...albeit with an adjusted purpose.

We will start with Disc One, which is almost entirely love song-based. Every track on here has some reference to my personal life, family and/or previously-well-guarded emotions. There are also several space and astronomy references, from song titles to entire rhyme schemes. The instrumentals are hand-picked to be Neo-Soul and 90's/Golden Era-based, with a little dark/spacey trap here & there too. Listen close and enjoy the journey.

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” - Les Brown

For my fellow dreamers...

Track Name: Go For It! (Intro)spective: with Spoken Word by Frivolous Shara [prod. Thrill Beatzz]
Poetic Intro (Frivolous Shara):
Who am I?
What am I?
To you I am nothing,
I am nobody
I have no body
I am brain with no torso
A picture with no frame
A soul with no name
I am the dirt beneath your sole
An organic state of pace in the human race
Among the dead do I live
To the soil I take and I give
I cannot tell if this rain or if these are tears
but I yearn to be greater than this
I feel that is my fate
My destiny awaits, so, well, I must survive
That's when my shell began to quell
And I thought over was satan's banishment to hell
And I screamed
scared of my own power
I was the one to break through the surface of the ground and stretch into a tower
Jack, I only thought these were fairytales
But I stalk the inhabitants of Earth as I live beyond the sky
And so I must ask myself,
Who am I?
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

Verse 1 (AGenius):
I grew up on concrete floors
Rent was $25 a month lizards slipped in through our doors
Spiders the size of your palm would visit us making tours
Hella roaches Shoppin our place like a grocery store
100 degrees in Florida A/C we can't afford
Humidity on top of that so we here burning more
Than a bootleg mixtape
Had no cable of course
We'd watch the same old movies to keep from getting bored
Or chilled at the rec center n played N64
Starfox super smash showed No Mercy on da homies
Tried to avoid the druggies, just went to Mario Parties
Or played football after school
& Chopped it up with the shorties
Shout out to my parents who did their best to Support me
From Living hood to living good
It's still a struggle
But I'm built for it
Just more hurdles to overcome
In my victory lap n they'll say I won
'Cause I went for it

Chorus:
Yes I know you got goals so be bold
And just go for it
Go for it
I can see you have dreams so believe
And just go for it
Go for it
You got goals...
You got dreams...
So be bold...
And believe...
And just go for it!
Go for it
Go for it
Go for it

Verse 2:
My momma graduated from college
I'm proud of her
'Cause since she lost her momma I know life has been hard for her
Sure it don't help I don't make much effort to talk to her
Sending these letters through all vendettas I got for her
Look at my dad and all the time that he let go by
I just want him to live one dream before he dies
Look at him and see all the symptoms of a battered man
Whether momma likes it or not I'm a pure reflection of him
Lend a helping hand
Won't let my gifts go to waste
Another day
So with every breath I do this for them
And now I got kid
So I can see the vision
Now I can see there's reasons
God brought me to existence
Now I can see these lyrics
Can make direct impression
And every word I say
Will pave someone's direction
A dream deferred
So I'm Gon be their greatest accomplishment
And be the soil for my seeds to flourish
And just go for it.

Chorus:

Spoken Word Outro (AGenius):

[Bridge]
Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane

[Verse 1]
I'm suited n booted

When it comes to music
Bet against me how could you be so foolish

You knew this
be wise when you're choosin
Father n husband musician n student
A lot on my plate but I'm chillin I'm coolin
Just more for the meals when we eatin we full and
I'm never shaped square me n stars more congruent.
Ahhh
In da chamber
Pushin bars heavy weighted
Train wit super gravitation
Kayoken flow I'm just Sayian
Rappers take shots, they don't phase me
Got dragon balls, recuperation
Oh you sleepin on the Genius?
What you sayin? Mane quit playin!
I'ma make em get up!

[Chorus]
(Errbody get up!)
Raise my daughter UP
Make my stock go UP
Sacramento got bars but I'm here now rappers better step it UP
(Errbody get UP)
I don't light it UP
But I'm Fired UP
Haters gon hate but if they tryna bring it my way I'ma jack em UP
Keep my education UP

We just Tryna break these ceilings
On a paper stackin mission
Maneeeeee
x2

Verse 2
What will I do?
Where will I go from here?
That's a constant dilemma for me everyday I write the verse of the year!
Haters swerve while I steer
In my own lane on 5th gear
On da HOV lane no peers
Run da whole game make it clear
Shout out to Anna O!
Most other crews out here are terrible
Vocabulary on 3rd grade level
Here's dictionary dont embarrass yo-
Self any further
Get into Trouble
Feed you the bass wit a side of Treble
Take you a sip of potent Genius flow
Act like a Buster you finna be Ghost.
No Bill Murray....
You rappers are scary
Being unique gets y'all worried
So I crank this up on you clowns n bust out of da box cuz y'all don't do Jack for me
I can smell the hate on you like curry
You want beef? Tough, that's jerky
Raw but I still give God glory
So try but u never can never will hurt me
So throw sticks n stones You never can hurt me
Prayers up so God's got me
Favored up, think I'm cocky?
Keep my head at high altitudes
Treat my queen like royalty?
Daughter up on a pedestal
Self-esteem on a rocket
Been down n out for too long
Rise from the Underground
Raise the bar where my star is
Errbody get up!

(Errbody go up!)
Raise my daughter UP
Make my stock go UP
Sacramento got bars but I'm here now rappers better step it UP
Stay prayered up
Staying favored up
Feeling down 'cause I won't dumb it down lil homie better smarten UP
Turn the bass on UP
Turn the hi-hats UP
Raisi sampled Barney, WHUT?
Remember this here song growing up
Everybody turn UP
Turn down for what?
We gon' live it UP
Hear that? Guess we shut them haters UP!!

Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane
Nah It's just G-g-g-g-Genius, he stay fly he do his thang
And one day he'll make it rain
But til then yo I ain't trippin
We just Tryna break these ceilings
On a paper stackin mission

Track Name: Don't Look Down! (feat. nosticthepoet) [prod. Flxtch!]
INTRO
One time for your mind now...One time for your mind now
The world needs love!
Two times for your mind now...Two times for your mind now
The world needs love!
Three times for your mind now...Three times for your mind now
The world needs love!
Four times for your mind now...Four times for your mind now...

VERSE 1 (AGenius)
We can be happy if we try
Reject society you n I
They say that we will never touch the sky
Proud to be on my feet
But I still I desire to rise
Crawl before you walk
before you run
And then you'll fly
Seems like nowadays even love is something money can buy
Then realize
Things so easily comprised must be defective
No lie
I don't have much to my name collecting pennies
But I
Got plenty heart and a drive for your repossession
Be my... soulmate
Make love to your mind
And watch our souls mate
Make me smile inside
Like it's sponsored by Colgate
Give me butterflies
Put me on n Press play
N let go no need to rewind
What's so hard to understand?
Can't you see?
You + me = Harmony that's the simplest algo-rhythm
I hope you catch my tempooo
My heartbeat the instrumental
N watch how it races for you
Speedy Steady yet simple
Now can we Kick it like kenpo
Drink all of our love til we're drunk
Tu amor-etto
Let Cupid be the focus of art
That's amoretto
I hope you get it, don't cha?
Could go on and on just as long as it about you
Funny how sweet nothings have so much substance now
Under the presumption I'll love every discussion
We'll have
Now You can see me as your latest mistake
Or the greatest decision you ever make
What will it take, huh?

CHORUS
I'm so glad that I found u
After all of this time
Don't want anyone else but you
You're the ultimate high
I know this altitude can scare you
I share all of your fears
But I got you
I got you
Just say "I trust you"
All you must do
Is don't look down
(go, go, go, go)
Don't Look Down
(go, go, go, go)
All you must do is Don't Look Down
(go, go, go, go)
Don't Look Down
(go, go, go, go)
All you must do is Don't Look Down

VERSE 2 (nosticthepoet)
nosticthehusband on the mic and in a new track
Featuring the girl I took to the moon and never flew back
Ha your soulful singing sends me super saiyan in my music
But simply put baby "I like the way you do that"
Ha who ha
It's like I'm taken to other dimensional planes
Your love is unreal without playing no games
It's fire like natsu or Thai food
I got you beside me I promise im taking your pain
I promise I'm never gonna hurt you again
Gimme a bit of your trust
Then watch all the fear start fading away
I wanna mix and master my jokes with the way that you laugh
Cuz Da prophecy says that marriage is the greatest collab
Qarl me Supa Bwe Wizam magical qualities
We can hurt everybody and make mulatto beats
if you just take my hand i could show you the world
i'll give you a ring cuz you know you're my girl
We can make the sweetest music that ain't never been played
Cuz you're the greatest decision I ever made
Now what ya say?

BRIDGE
I'm so glad that I found you
(I love you...I love you)
Don't want anyone but you
(all you must do...all you must do is Don't Look Down)
I know that this altitude can scare you
(but I got you...I got you)
I'm so glad that I found you
(all you must do...all you must do is Don't Look Down)

[Chorus]
Track Name: Find Your :-) (feat. D-Real [愛] & Jaya Soul) [prod. jtbs. & Courtney Scott]
[AGenius]
Maybe it's when you wake up to the sun's shine
Or you hear a classic record for the first time
Or got that "wanna chill?" Text from that girl you like
All cheesin but you keep it g, text back "aight."
For me? It's when I look into my daughter's eyes
Come home from a long day then I see my wife
Or when my new song gets a hundred likes
200...
300...
"Daddy, no bragging" ok you're right
Really though it's when you say my song changed your life
A struggle easier's to handle when friends sympathize
You're not the only one going through what you're going through
A thousand miles away but through music I can touch you
It's amazing...
God gave me a gift; I embraced it
Told me to switch the way I give you all of this flame ish
So I brought a little change to the bars
Hearts hella large
And I wanna share it with y'all
Yea life is hard
I am no stranger to shards
In between my toes
Couldn't afford shoes in my walk
Feet got many scars
But with every step I move forth
Now I'm hella far
So good to know you have direction
Scared of the dark?
Nah you know I've been there before
But never more
The Son shines again in the morn
Wait til tomorrow
Forget where I've Gone
Now I've answered the call
Now I Smile til there's sores in my jaws
Then I smile a little smile more

[D-Real]
Price of a smile well i've heard that it varies
like jewels that chirp i've heard of canaries
like Fruit that burst and girl you a cherry
can i be that first it hurts i'll surely
be that nurse AG know the area
I can figure out the math of that dairy air
ohh i know whats inside you got a spell bound sound your magic is my rouse
name D-Real im that dude that flirts girl i bank on ya dreams baby prove that worth
in love with ya spirit baby you that church come and bath in my wave baby do that surf
i could lighten your soul jaya queue that mood, now show me your moves to the new jack groove

[Jaya Soul]
Stars above...
I'm gonna smile...
x4
I'm gonna soar
No matter where I am
I'm gonna reach the top
Just as high as I can
Lemme tell you what I won't do
I'm never gonna change
I'm gonna stay the same ol' me
x2
Never gonna
Never gonna
Change
I'll always stay the same ol' me

[Bridge - AGenius & D-Real]
So I brought a little change to the bars
Now I smile til there's sores in my jaws
(We gon' find your smile)
God gave a gift, I embrace it
Through music I touch you, it's amazing
(We gon' find your smile)
x2

[Outro - AGenius]
Turn this up make ya neck work
Vibe to it neck jerk til ya head hurt
Love yourself
Cut the check make deposits to your self worth
Food for thought wisdom's a buffet, so self-serve
Seems like everyone is so much more focused on the frowns
And everyone online is only out to keep you down
So login to your social media now
And tag me in a selfie with the smile that you found
Genius.
Track Name: Jump Through the Fire [prod. HOME]
[Intro]
I'm just tryna groove like the vinyl
Change my view to Kaleidoscope
No tunnel vision
But this is the only life I know
Im just a circus clown in this live show
And if lying (lion) through the fire I go
She's a melody of a mellow day
But through I give she just takes, & I'm
tired of the changes...
And I'm running out of patience....

[Verse 1]
Play my tape for my classmates
But they ain't tryna hear a lyric since I ain't Drake
When ppl act like you gotta be famous before they press play
Or top the iTunes charts before they click n pay
That's what I hate
But what can I say?
Even when they peep my music, they just pretend...
To listen close, say "yeah it's dope" n never listen again
Man...
Sometimes I'm glad it's just me and this iPad
Instead of working so hard to be the next fad
And you...
Can't even say I have you these days
Cuz you be actin all brand new these days
Staying "single" can't even stand a play through these days
All I studied yet somehow I never knew you these days
Man, Who are you these days
Rather have mumbles than a real convo?
Rather hear magazines clap than cover real issues?
Went from your star to you shooting my heart with a Big Bang
Left a black hole in my chest; I'll consume everything

[Chorus 1]
But still I...will jump through the fire
Let this flame be a sign of desire
Hey
I will jump through the fire
If that's the only way that I can ignite us
Hey...
Ho...

[Bridge]
Every day
My community
Cirque de soileil
Currently
Flipping out on stage
With No progress made
You ain't afraid
To cross the line, Even if it's a tightrope?
Would you still walk this path if they shatter the lightposts?
Move aside
Unless you're do-or-die
You're a target
While you scrutinize
Each other none of us are moving farther
So worried bout your bars u forgot to be an artist
Trying so hard to be heard we forgot to be performers
(Wowwww!)

[Verse 2]
Barnum & Bailey came to my city
I shared the stage as I struggled to juggle many
Things while fake friends start throwing daggers against me
Went out on a limb but there's no trapeze to get me
Jumped through all these hoops, I just get burned all it gets me
Saw my fellow acts they hit the stage with me looking iffy
All these clowns and still sold no tickets, what a pity
All these clowns and still sold no tickets, what a pity
And you...for your attention what I gotta do? Huh?
What kind of sound do I have to pursue? Huh?
Seems like these carbon copies are enough for you
Huh?
Either that or hypeman in panda suits
Or
If I pretend that I get high up in the booth
Or
Maybe it's just to stay alive, it hurts to choose
This...
Can't tell if it's her heart or my heart's broke
Something tells me it's both
Yo I don't know
But...

[Chorus 2]
But still I...
I will jump through the fire
Let this flame be a sign of desire
Hey
I will jump through the fire
If that's the only way that I can ignite us
I will jump through the fire
Maybe then can I make your eyes light up?
I will jump through the fire
Then you'll see if I shine a little brighter
Hey...
Ho...
x4
Track Name: Just Something About You (feat. Loretta Mars) [prod. jtbs. & Blankz Cloud]
[Verse 1 - AGenius]
I'm not into parties
We grown so We loungin'
We maxin relaxin
Sultry Satisfaction
Sexy
It's so refreshing to match with
Someone with your understanding
Engage in a conversation
embrace mental elevation
Suppling some soulful stimulation
So much more to your presentation
Than those IG chicks have to offer
Things that keep me on the phone
From pm to 6 in the morn
Up in class with you on my dome
When I should be taking notes
At the same time you motivate
Me to get back on n stay focused
One conversation with you feels like I've known you for years
Making me do and think things too early this journey
Oh baby
It's miraculous I could find
Someone on your level
Only right the way that you shine
I put you in bezels
No way that I can deny
You're Special
Can't put my finger on it
To be honest
Getting ahead of myself
Is it this atmosphere
The lights
Maybe Your natural glow
I'm not sure
Can't figure it out
But for now all that I know is

[Chorus]
Oh yeah
x7
It's just something about you...
It's just something about you...
Oooooh
(x2)

[Verse 2 - Loretta Mars]
Show me
Yeah you have to show me
Words; I'll lower standards
You settle, I'll be in action
Films, 'cause I'm attractive
Globally.....active
Attacking all these distractions
I'm never overreacting
I...want a man who can do me right
Wanna put him in a suit and tie
No time for the f....and hide
Cruising in on a 4-wheel drive
Ain't got a record, but I got records...
My book of songs look like previous love letters
I know...I'm just Loretta...
Change is better...
You will forgive her...
You won't forget her...
It's now or never
I say it two times
I thank God for my talent; I won't lose rhyme
You lose your mind over love; I won't lose mine
And everything that you go through isn't a waste of time
I got dreams; I'm gon' chase mine
You can plot, but all that planning, it don't save lives
Take mine...

[Chorus]

[Verse 3 - AGenius]
Girl...
I know that it's wrong,
Tend to be too focused when it comes to this music
Thinking that these lyrics are strong without actions to prove it is just foolish
So I hush my two lips bought a bouquet of tulips then I kiss those two lips
My fingers proceed to such Movements
Through your hair locks girl keep the key to this
Heart...
Others in the past had little Nuance
To my mood which proved a nuisance
To continue to purse it
Until you then this mood ring changed its hue to
Something Blue from
Something blue within myself
Cuz of You.
So lemme ask before I pursue:
Where have you been all my life?
5 minutes in wanna make you my wife
Wedding bands groom and a bride
Picket fence house the whole 9
Dressed in all white my tuxedo
Tailored in black as your equal
Matching bow-tie for the people
Ying to my yang yes I need you
Have us a child make our sequel
Prince and princess so Regal
Look back and reminisce when we made our vows at cathedral
But
I'm Still on my grind....
Just A way to bide my time
But I can't deny
You're a distraction I wouldn't mind
Cuz oh yeah

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Track Name: Sunrise (Lipstick on My Collar) (feat. Warren Peace) [prod. jtbs.]
[Intro]
One time for the grown
Two times for the sexy
Don't know how you gettin' home
But I can take you if you let me
One time for the grown
Two times for the sexy
You don't wanna be alone
So watch the Sunrise with me

[Verse 1]
She likes a man in bow ties
She intoxicates I get so high
These lines are tailored can you read between my pinstripes
Caught me speeding to her twice cuz she too fine
This love's poetic
Get it, girl tell me what's really on yo mind
Don't call me disrespectful
I'm older wiser now and I just know
Y'all don't think too different than men do
Just sayin though
You just wants guy with those classy features
One who Looks you in the eyes n maybe see a future
Who Gon Put the timbs aside n take the time to suit up
He puts you in loubuitons but can't compliment cha?
Mind on cloud 9 soon as I see her
Got goals and got ass, classy fashionista
Heart beating through my chest fiending? Yes I need her
I don't know her name but can't wait to meet her

[Bridge 1]
Suddenly this party seems so lame huh?
Let's get some time alone stop playin games huh?
one engaging conversation of what I'm sayin sho I got her
Can't control anticipation got her lipstick on my collar...
Suddenly this party seems so lame huh?
Let's get some time alone stop playin games huh?
Her skirt up and my shirt unbuttoned just one kiss I know I got her
No goodnight, more like good morning; watch the sunrise with a brother

[Chorus - Warren Peace & AGenius]
I know you wanna ride
(I just wanna)
See the sunrise with you
Can't be alone tonight
(I just wanna)
See the sunrise with you
With you
With you

[Chorus Bridge]
One time for the grown
Two times for the sexy
Don't know how you gettin' home
But I can take you if you let me
One time for the grown
Two times for the sexy
You don't wanna be alone
So watch the Sunrise with me

[Verse 2]
She grew up on the beach but there's much more
Guess that's why she's ocean deep I can't wait to explore
I experience her radiance daily
And it's "just something about you" that I can't ignore
One ring one child one dream
That one day I'll give you all the finer things
In the meantime I rap and I sing
So when I say how I feel you'll know exactly what I mean
I met her my sophomore year of college
Was underdressed We might as well had worn pajamas
That's how I knew you were the Juan like I knew Spanish
Cuz through all I do I feel so comfortable around your presence...
Whether we talk making love or sit in silence
Through this hellacious life you are my steps to heaven
Plug in your hot spot so I can get connected
But even when you're gone I think of you every second

[Bridge 2]
Suddenly I wanna give my last name huh?
Let's take this to the alter no more games hun
And to this very day still reminisce the day I hollered
Checked my closet for that shirt still got that lipstick on da collar
Suddenly I wanna give my last name huh?
Let's take this to the alter no more games hun
I wake up every morning see her beautiful as ever
9 years of sunrises I'm so blessed I still love her

[Chorus]

[Chorus Bridge]

To all my bros who gotta work on the weekend

To all my girls who gotta work on the weekend

I feel ya pain baby
To all my bros who gotta work on the weekend

[Verse]
Can we just sleep in and not do ish today?
Watch avatar marathons Kill la Kill the time away?
Order in some Chinese eat straight off the foam trays?
Watch vine n laugh as we lay
The bed is such a sacred place
Why leave it?
They have us work all week
Calluses on our feet
12 hour shifts no sleep
Convinced they shorten our slumber so we won't have a chance to dream
Say be glad for what we got so we don't want nice things
But they right
I don't need em
Just gimme the weekend
Just my baby so we can
Talk, cuddle, lil freakin...
Maybe...
My phone is on silent yo what's the reason?
Maybe...
My friends full of drama and I don't need em
Raise the minimum wage just by a couple cents
As if raising our pocket cents will lower our common sense
One day we'll wise up to the BS they feed us and
One day we'll rise up above the shackles they keep us in
Til then...

[Chorus]
Can we just kick up our feet n do nothin
Nothin?
Nothin
Nothing?
NOTHING
Can we just lay in the sheets n make love then?
That's the only work I'm puttin in
'Cause it's Saturday
(x2)

[Outro]
To all my bros who gotta work on the weekend
I feel ya pain homie
I feel ya pain homie
To all my girls who gotta work on the weekend
I feel ya pain baby
I feel ya pain baby
To all my bros who gotta work on the weekend
That's a shame homie
Yeah that's a shame homie
To all my girls who gotta work on the weekend
I feel ya pain...
Yeah...

MOON BOOTS II
[Intro]
(Aaliyah & Timbaland sample)
Baby you don't know...
What you do to me...
(Baby girl...don't you know I am the man)
Between me & you...
I feel a chemistry....
(Don't you know....Better tell somebody...)
Baby you don't know...
What you do to me...
(Baby girl...don't you know I am the man)
See no one else....loves me like you do
(Don't you know....Better tell somebody...)

[Verse 1]
My high is so official
Since I breathed you in damn I miss you
Their gravity's artificial
They can't bring me down
I'm on Neptune when I kiss her
My thoughts of her are on Nimbus
She's my only sweet surrender
I must abduct her now
Went to Saturn to put this ring on
Which language will let me Klingon
To you...
Fill your neck with an asteroid belts
Shoot her comets funny how this ice makes her heart melt
My eve
In our element connect our atoms
Show me your Erbium
So I can Break down your Pink Matter
Put this rocket in turbulence

[Chorus]
You're an alien....
You're out of this world something I've never seen
I don't want none of these girls
You're something else to me
Put these moon boots on...
So I can show you me
Girl come escape with me....
Girl I can't wait to leave....
(Turn the lights out)

[Chorus Bridge]
Baby girl...
I'm the man from the Milky Way
Bring that ship round my space
Come listen to what I gotta say

[Verse 2]
I ain't from here
I'm that shooting star y'all wish on
This ain't my home planet baby
It's just my current mission
I'm the ill one
To infinity and beyond
Forget what these earthlings be on
My inspiration is Krypton
You don't need 106 to view this Black ET
That interstellar space dweller
Seems like been traveling forever
But now that star lookin better
Put my dogs on that's Cruella
And my girl's one in a million
Prepare for liftoff we're going
Places where there ain't no ceilings
So Listen
Baby girl...
I'm the man from the Milky Way
Bring your ship around my space
Come listen to what I gotta say
Baby girl...
I am known as AGenius
Spit that fire to rise ya high as the phoenix
Bars the nicest but style is kinda da meanest
I'm da Martian searchin to ride witha Venus
Could it be you oooh is it I cannot believe it
Gotta probe ya must explore ya I have to know ya I need ya
And I'll beam up any hater I hate ya gimme a reason

To a place

You

[Chorus]

[Verse 3/Outro]
Your love....
Makes me wanna change my ways
Say goodbye to my villain days
Put the Sith Lord cape away
Babe...
Your love...
Fills a void in empty space
Used to conquering planets
But you gravitate
Can I just revolve round you babe?
And If I....
Let you in my starship
Would you could you say goodbye to all this?
Life is just a big trip in the Tardis and
I'm just trying to shake these Daleks
If I....
Showed you where my heart is
You can see that I'm different...
I'll love you like an alien
Cuz you Out of this world I'll take you places you've never been
But....

You'll never see Earth again....
(But is that so bad?)
Humans bring pain; come with me & I promise you will never hurt again but...

Track Name: Planets Away (feat. JaqKel) [prod. ChopGodLewi] {Edited Version}
[Intro - JaqKel]

[Verse 1 - JaqKel]
Girl I know...
I've been smokin' heavy
I got some stress on me
You need to understand me
You're in my ear all the time, "Where the hell you've been?"
I did no wrong, but you decided to believe your friends, no
(For real?)
This how this gon' end....
With us just being friends...

[AGenius]
I wonder will she miss me when I'm gone?
Miss me when I'm gone?
Miss me wit that bull you won't be Mrs Me if I'm gone
Got enough bullshit at work, don't bring that to me when I'm home
Been too long
Tell me I'm wrong n dog me out for Tryna bone
Used to be insomniacs from all the hours on the Phone
Used to make the neighbors mad from all the hours you would moan
Used to prize me like a winner
Used to go out of your way to
Make me feel like I'm that n.....
N' let me smack that a... on the way to dinner
Freaky gentleman
You used to luh dat, luh dat (sheesh)
Tricks Chop ya box in half like magic
Used to luh that, luh dat (sheesh)
Don't tell me appreciation fades with infatuation
Now Fights make us lack the patience
got more tolerance for strangers
Now I'm Tryin to connect I'm gettin tired of the space
Keep us grounded but you take off when it counts what can I say?
Now You're from Venus? I'm from Mars?
Used to be stars Our galaxy
Used to be so down to Earth but now you're 2 planets away
J...

[Chorus - JaqKel]
I don't know what you want
You say I'm never home
And I don't pick up the phone...
But who them n.....on your phone?
Girl you don't know what you want...
Girl you don't know what you want....
Baby tell me what you want....
Just please tell me what you want....

[Verse 2]
I wonder will she miss me when I'm gone?
Miss me when I'm gone?
Miss me wit that bull you won't be Miss Me if I'm gone
Sleep in the same bed but never felt so damn alone
Communication is so distant it's no wonder why I roam
Snappin' every second "Yo you better watch your tone"
Show our darkest sides "Yo I wish I would've Known"
Time to Take half of all I own
Since I'm Always out of minutes
In debt I owe so much attention
You wonder who co-signed my Interest
Love, trust, respect, commitment
But we forget mistakes are made neglect importance of forgiveness
Salt on the wounds where there should've been a bandage
you'll be damned you give ya heart back to whom that did the damage
Yo I'm Tryin to connect I'm gettin tired of the space
Keep us grounded but you take off when it counts what can I say?
Now You're from Venus? I'm from Mars?
Used to be stars Our galaxy
Used to be so down to Earth but now you're 2 planets away
J....

Track Name: SBYL / TheOne (Outerlude) [prod. STB.]
Intro
And I'll never let go...
Girl say it ain't so...
x2

Verse 1:
Love ain't like the amusement parks when we rollercoast
I try to balance my emotions with no net on a tightrope
How long can we keep up this charade?
How long I need to heal a heart that I break?
Long as it takes....
But sometimes I know it feels like I kick the cast that it's in...
Kiss the wounds I caused, stabbing through the bandages
Oh so you mad again?
Tears fall on both ends
We're desensitized to the rain
But Who better for ya than the boy
Every freckle every curve every angle I enjoy
But I know
I ain't appreciate you before
But if there's one thing I learned through the storm ya endure
'Cause the sun shines
Rather not look back on days you was mine
Rather not wipe tears just make the song cry
Rather struggle for a night than be out ya life

Chorus:
Don't wanna be mad when I say good night
But if I had choice well I choose to fight
Because I had a glimpse of the other side
And I refuse to hide
My feelings from ya time to open up and...
(Stand by your love)
So if we're mad when I say good night (so be it)
But if I had choice well I choose to fight
Because I had a glimpse of the other side
And I refuse to hide
My feelings from ya time to open up and...
(Stand by your love)
....
And I'll never let go
You feel like giving up baby say it ain't so...
Please say it ain't so
Give me anything n watch how tight I hold
And I'll never let go
You feel like giving up baby say it ain't so...
....girl say it ain't so
You're still the sweetest thing that I've ever known

Verse 2:
More than ever there's some hurdles down the path
To happiness and can't look forward too much focus on the past
And even through the stress I think you're hella bad
I'll still leave ya yellin Jesus like a nostic tag
Saying all kind of things to make me mad
Am I really the one you can't stand?
Huh?
Is this just a call to action?
Still think that it's the only way I'll show some passion?
They say some things are better left unsaid
While that might be true
some things will burn if left to brew
But when it comes time to tell the naked truth
It's word porn, we bust out and just feel dirty when it's through
So What am I to do?
Through All the lies
I messed up
Trust denied
Can't build you back up
But still I try
'Cause you deserve as much
Effort I took to break you
To be your standing crutch

Chorus...

the one (outerlude) verse:
Lately you're so quick to Regret me
Carl Thomas in your playlist like you wish you never met me huh?
But I can make you happy if you let me
I'm your soulmate I complete you I'm the one yea I'm the Jet Li baby
One
Minute you want me next you hate me
Swinging at me minutes after Making love so hot n heavy
You may not get it but you get me unh
I'm Your Air you need it but it's so unhealthy
Contaminated
Lethal inject when penetrating
After I stuck you something died inside
I'm....
Sorry for it
Years that I ignored it
But you heard it's God mode
My words can bring us back alive
My
Confidence is through the roof
Lies
I told before but
now I'm the truth
And you
My light side of the moon
My better half you'll make it through
If it's the last thing that I do
Boo
It's Genius...

Loving you
All I Wanna Do baby

Loving you....

Jaya Soul's Verse:
Finding love can be so hard
Like searching for 1 bright star
I found you now you're here
To take away your fears
Baby...
Fill you up with all my smiles
It's gonna make you love me 'cause it's so worthwhile
Can you hear me now?
Cannot compete with fate
Now that you're here
You know it's no mistake
Listen to me baby....

Hook

AGenius' Verse:
I know I messed up, baby
Could've left this life behind and even left our baby
Might take me years to make for when I was lazy,
But....
(All I wanna do...)
Is treat you right...
Make it even better than when we were dating
How I cherished every moment every thing you were saying
Drink every ounce of your love til there's none left n I'm faded,
Cuz your taste is amazin
And I'm still craving
So we talk
Til the sunrise....
So I can see the pretty mahogany
In your eyes....
Every kiss on those lips I swear it changed my life
I wouldn't trade anything I'm so blessed you my wife
So blessed you my wife...
Forget these ratchet beezies
This ain't skull kid this the real me
I can't be mad at the world because I have you with me
You're capable of so much but still tell me that you need me
Fallen apart so many times yet somehow you still believe me
When I say...

[Intro]
Now if you got a little one put your hands up high!
Put your hands up high
And if you got a little one put your hands to the sky!
Put your hands to the sky
Now if you got a little family put your hands up high!
Put your hands up high
And if you got a little family put your hands to the sky!
Put your hands to the sky

[Verse 1]
I penned this verse to your heartbeat's tempo
Does it goes wit Kenneth's sample? Can only hope
You can sift, your way through all the villainy
And you find this piece for you that ya Daddy wrote
No one can argue that human perfection doesn't exist
Cuz I have you....
No pressure though just so you know you're gonna make some mistakes
And when you do I'll still love you
This is Unconditional
Unquestionable
Apparent that I'm not a parent out of convenience
A parrot one day you'll be straight reflection of AGenius
Which persona will you emulate?
I guess the one I demonstrate
But yeah
From a princess to a queen
You're the girl of my dreams
With a whole lotta mommy
And a little bit of me
Ayeeee
Give my last breath to kiss your little cheeks
I can die that day knowing I left the greatest part of me

[Chorus]
Never knew in first sight that I'd fall in love
Til I had you
I must mean a whole lot to the man above
'Cause He brought me you
Don't know where I would be without you girl..
That's why I squeeze you so close with every hug
Then what? I...
(I keep holding on, and never let go of you)

[Verse 2]
(Hey, remember that 80's flow?)
I teach her how to read
She taught me how to be a man
I teach her how to walk
She teaches me how to stand
For my beliefs so I protect her from society
I learned just as much from her
As she did from me
Your future's so bright
Never cease to dream
No matter how impossible or difficult it seems
You're an angel don't let haters phase you or clip your wings
We live in a time where you literally be anything
That you wanna be
And you're the brightest star in the Mad Galaxy
Just so you know
And It makes me whole
Just to watch you grow
Speaking of no matter what you'll little star
And you'll forever glow...

RIDIN' WITH MY DAUGHTER (JUMPMAN)

Track Name: What Are We Doing? [prod. Aataze]...Spoken Word Outro
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
[Verse 1]
Emotional bruises
Somehow I keep turning these scars into more Excuses
For me to never hold a muzzle in front of these two lips
Invest 2 cents in the piggy bank of children's Influence
How foolish
To think I'm so insignificant you don't study movements
Choosin' the savage frees anger but a foundation's ruined
But not to acknowledge our sins is the crime that's the truest
Bridges burned no lessons learned, what am I doing?
Stay in the shadows so long forgot the light I'm Losing
Stay on this path is a highway to hell, but I'm just Cruising
All that cursing all that violence to prove that we're the Coolest
But that's not really our life, really what are we proving?
What are we doing?
We're just Walkin round talkin reckless
Hang each other for a necklace
Milk the game for all its worth pull out the nesquik
Here's perspective
Trying to gain respect of Ppl I have no business impressing
Satan's an expert at weaving his intricate webbing so
I'm sure God has some questions...like

[Chorus]
.....What Are We Doing?
.....What Are We Doing?
Making the same mistakes although the sin is proven
Face correction with attitude
What Are We Doing?
.....What Are We Doing?
.....What Are We Doing?
Seems like society's complacent with never improving
Afraid of our own altitude
What Are We Doing?

[Chorus Bridge]
And I know it's been said before
But you can't let nobody steal your glow
Feels like the dark is more comfortable
But Let your spirit show
(x2)

[Verse 2 Bridge]
I've learned that while I can't keep beating myself up for my past I can't keep making excuses for it either.
Neither, brings progression toward redemption after too long.
We must accept that as long as we have a voice that reaches we are leaders
And there's a little somebody somewhere that is striving to be us
And whatever we give em is the example they have
What path will you lead them to?

[Verse 2]
Your honor
I got a confession to make, your honor
It was us who made black power a joke, yeah we're the authors
Of the horrors past '68, when they shot our King just to pawn us
Jim Crow been dead for years yet look at what he taught us
How can we be "tha man" when we blame "the man" for our problems
Our women are so precious yet look at the things we call her
Why's it cooler to degrade her than exalt her, huh???
Man that's gonna be one awkward conversation with my daughter
And It gets no Better
Through it all, We're no different from our predecessors
History repeats itself I wonder what they never tell us
Any true bringer of change dies, you see the set-up?
Like is that really what it takes for us to make hit records?
I'll admit there was that time my anger got the best of
Me so I guess that
I messed up
Cuz we're so worried about that time we let NaS down
We let it get to countless times how much we let God down
What are we....doing?

[Chorus]

[Chorus Bridge]

SPOKEN WORD OUTRO
Shoot for the moon
We're meant to live out our dreams
Though our skies may be cloudy
Stars not out of reach as they seem
We only use a fraction of our brains but I'll make that 10% go a long way like tithes
Though All of my brothers dyin...
Media tells us we hood but I don't buy it
Rappers say dealing is good yo we should try it
I know they lying
But our sons can't tell the difference from living n rhyming
Momma I know you're tryin
That government assistance only does so much
Urging that man who knocked ya to be a father with no luck
That's why when I see mine, making shapes out her play-doh with cookie cutters
And know I must be here so she can dream....
So they can dream
No more nightmares because of me
Our sand castles are fragile but she held them up for me...
Now I believe...
And with each picture she snaps I picture a missing puzzle piece
Added to the fixture of a bigger reality...
Picture that
And with No better timing,
Where I now stand, Came from an Uprising
My fam the foundation that I needed so now I'm grindin
Build a better future from scratch, got calluses on my hands
Was in bed for hours mad at my life, gaining weight crying
But no longer will I let the man I was affect the man that I am
MoonShooter.
