Track Name: Reparation
Living in a world as a Black man
They wanna see me ghost like Pacman/
I backhand my way to stay,
Thinking bout Martin who paved the way/

Thinking bout X who held the K
Not afraid to say let the lead spray/
I segway for our dearly departed
Kimani Gray, Trayvon Martin/

My pardon this sound harshest
Blacks killed by correction officers/
Stop-n-frisk laws to meet quotas
Set by the bosses higher up/

In government office with their corporate sponsors
Laying out coffins/
Education suppression is a deadly weapon
When concealed from classrooms to the cell/

Pipeline of iniquity is bigotry
Check the media we're portrayed as the enemy/
Labeled terrorists for fight freedom
Look at Assata Shakur see fear is what they feed them/

Them being guards of the status quo
They being dreamers in the ghetto/
Kids with their heads slumped slow
Praying for hope on the front porch of their home/

Do the math take a look at the past
Look where we're at systematic gap/
Between Whites and Blacks, Whites and Hispanics
Whites and Natives one would swear that they hate us/

In the city poor communities is what they gave us
We only equal on constitution papers/
In the city poor communities is what they gave us
In stead of a mule and them 40 acres/
Track Name: 1997
INTRO:
Back in '97 when I first started rapping
Once was a dream, can't believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Well I guess I tell you how it happened/

VERSE:
I was living off of Chalmers Eastside of the D
We stayed on Promenade, just my sister, mom, and me/
My third grade year in St. Juilianna Academy
Then our funds got low went to the school down street/

Gooddale Elementary, my teacher was Ms. Wilson
Little old white lady teaching all them children/
In that class I meet Marcellus, but we called him Mark
He would be my very first homie from the start/

We hit it off, all the time we would talk
Discovered he stayed not too far if I walk/
Just around the corner so we hung-out reguraly
His moms knew my moms, we morphed into a family/

You know how it go, now we're both cousins
In school frontin, had all the girls buzzin/
His older cousin Bryon introduced us to spitting
Sat us down to write our raps in their grandmother kitchen/

Now I'm ripping, little boy on a mission
Bumping DMX watching Dragon Ball Z only wishing/
To do my thang, on a stage with a long chain
This around time I got my first rap name/

OUTRO:
Back in '97 when I first started rapping
Once a dream, can't believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Once was a dream, can't believed that it happen/

Back in '97 when I first started rapping
Once was a dream, can't believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Now you know how it happened/
Track Name: Cashin' Out (College Version)
CHORUS
Four years straight, no breaks doing all that work
Economy looking bad, people said it gone get worst/
Look I owe you, but I gotta pay Sallie Mae first
They want they shit no latter than the third/

I got 80 racks in debt girl I'm cashing out
Spent 100K on my Bachelors I'm cashing out/
Four years straight, no breaks doing all that work
Economy looking bad, people said it gone get worst/

VERSE
I got Sally Mae on my back, these creditors on my back
7am blowing my nap, talking that yap interests rap/
But I can't pay that interest back when my job don't pay me jack/
Gotta degree in a field that I can't work tell me what kinda shit is that/

It ain't funny no more,
When you're paying more than rent in student loans/
See the money comes, but the money goes
Now you broke eating off-brand HoneyCombs/
It'd be a long time till you paid in full, less you hit the lottery
With a lot cheese, but we know that'll never be, so continue paying till you're old in your seventies HA/

CHORUS
Four years straight, no breaks doing all that work
Economy looking bad, people said it gone get worst/
Look I owe you, but I gotta pay Sallie Mae first
They want they shit no latter than the third/

I got 80 racks in debt girl I'm cashing out
Spent 100K on my BA I'm cashing out/
Four years straight, no breaks doing all that work
Economy looking bad, people say it gone get worst/
