Track Name: Boom (Real Ni**as Don't Die) [feat. Front Page]
"Boom (Ream Ni--as Don't Die)" lyrics from "Herecember 20NOW"

written by L. Marshall (Heat Lamp Music - ASCAP) and K. Dunkley II for Karl Anthony Dunkley II (BMI)


Adams and Crenshaw
Ni--as make moves
Mid-City live action
Better than pay per view
With the shits
Early with it
Before it hits the news
By the time the cameras roll
It's all boom boom boom boom

Verse 1:
You a skip and a jump from being a punk
Negligee away from being gay I see through you chump
Quit pissing sitting down on the toilet and man the f-ck up
Broke ni--as nag about they wallet no matter the time of the month
A homicidal rhyme recital fans ain't bleeding enough
More than imported vinyl to the Japanese "Ohayou"
I be knowing what's up I get draws off "Kon'nichiwa"
She down to smash even with the Kotex
Made her sign a waiver then she bounced seeing no checks
Built for these bars studio more like Bowflex
My jams on the radio haters feeling are insulted
Hard to read me your education was the culprit
Product of the crack era I can see your diagnosis
Fetal alcohol court involved mind dissolved from momma's dosage
I don't rest my case till the casket drops and they close it
Constipated attitude taking no sh-t

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Verse #2:

I understand mane you made a little stain in the game
I'm here to proclaim your spot's over
Drunk off success I'm barely sober
The balance between enlightened as the ayatollah
And rubbing on some concha while flying in a Porsche Lotus
My season year round where the crown for 20NOW
Swear to God ni--gas getting your hoodies on
Because like September prepare to fall
Bars raw enough to maul ya'll like pits in gallerias
Keep the game on it's tippy toes more than ballerinas
The culture's savior a walking Professor Xavier
Charged up more than X-Men making magazine freshmen
Sh-t on themselves old geezers I guess they were seniors
They words empty as the bogus POTUS and his Breitbart demons
Backwards crackers I'll be the hacker to get your alt-right deleted
The voice of voiceless undefeated

Chorus (repeat 1x)

"The Logos God" lyrics from "Herecember 20NOW"

written by Lyndon "F.Y.I." Marshall for Heat Lamp Music (ASCAP)


In the beginning was The Word and The Word was with God
Then He came to me and said ni--a get on your job
You gots to write your way out (no excuses)
You gots to write your way out

In the beginning was The Word and The Word was with God
Then He came to me and said ni--a get on your job
You gots to write your way out (you got the juice)
You gots to write your way out

Verse 1:

No stopping the / Mid-City philosopher / I'm Genghis Khan / When the mic is on / More than conqueror / Like the gram I come on strong / Bullets massage flesh / If you rub me wrong / 40s poured when you dead and gone / It's shame that a man's life eulogized over St. Ides / The Klan invested in malt liquor / To laugh at ya'll ni--as / Arizona tall cans / Train kids to drink early / Yes it's all planned / If cancer is hell on earth / Then we all damned / Naw / God got the bridge / He said F.Y.I. I made you to live / Plant jewels in these seedlings / That's positive / F-ck up the world / Till your pee stings / That's figurative / I'm cleaner than the Center of Disease Control / Baby sauced up by my bars she need a blow / She hornier than a trumpet / Because I'm a player that's triumphant / n-gga

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Verse 2:

Let's grab Uncle Sam by the pu--y on some Trump sh-t / He's still not my president / So f-ck the name dropping / The game huddled around me for leadership / I'm calling on the options / Respected from LA to BK / All coasts / Get NFL owners' side chicks legs up for me like a goal post / In the zone / Running through the holes / Oh well Odell / I'm snatching up your hoes / More righteous then Kaepernick / US antagonist / Snatch governor's collars / But a hero on this rapping sh-t / Most of this hip hop is buttocks / Little nigs glued to the YouTube for gluteus / Mumbling and fumbling over words / Bro the foolishness / Blame the school districts / For graduating illiterates / Make these crack babies kick rocks / A pop star is code word for writer's block / My pen jot the Top 5 Spot / From the life's octagon / To winners' circles / I won't stop

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Verse 3:

My gift unorthodox like a Jew that's Messianic / Tested in the life / Got my blessings / Feeling brolic / They say millennials is colic / Spoiled babies that went to college / I did the knowledge on the beats / I got a Ph.D / In being hotter / I vibe off a record player / Sweet Angel / Anita Baker / Damn I miss my mama / Beyond woke / It's insomnia / I'm on it more than flockers off of Normandie / Normally / Looking for the stash box / In the Bahamas / Silk Pajamas with a laptop / The workaholic with no days off / I went to the White House / Serving cocktails that's Molotov / I'm in my bag / F.Y.I. forever shine / I make the winter sad / More soul than a negro spiritual / Make'em free at last / The only ni--a from the century / To inspire artists and the fans / My words turn to numbers / I'll take money over tweeting hashtags (Yeah)

I gotta gun in my hand and I'm feeling like the muthf--cking man (yeah)

Don't make get live ni--a / Don't make me blast fire

Verse 1:

Congratulations / Proud of the little homie / College bound after ceremonies / Finger f-cking tenderronies / After Grad Night
Mama saved / Since he was 8 / For that dorm right? / Textbook answers / Don't prepare for what life is / To birth a dream / Abort a nightmares / Being woke / Is where knowledge begins / Slanted eye high as they keep ni--as off they Zen / To villanize / More than Kylo Ren / Instead of weed / I rather read / Keep my mind free / From being locked up by Vape Pen / Skated on then ice to the guap / The black face mask racist goals I stopped / We run track & field / But in the class / How we learning how to get up off the block / Poor education / Achilles heel / For real / Thank God for Joseph Clark / Once the mind is spark / We more lit than chemicals / Knowledge is the new burner bro

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Verse 2:

Fear's the main ingredient / In the recipe / For rest in piece / Marinated with hate / Could turn an office feud / Into co-workers being bar-b-qued / Murder prime time / On the evening news / 8 to 11 / 24 hours / In less than 7 days / Fear can make you weak / A reason a geek / Sees a phat a-s turns the other cheek / Fuel for the athlete / That won't hang up his cleats / Chose to die for the game / Then live in an anchor's seat / A powerful weapon for centuries / Before the invention of US Benjamins / It's all about tribal survival / Since the Bible / Jews versus Gentiles / Africans versus their European arrivals to they shores / An influencer of culture like the Moors / Phobias seeping out the pores of the insecure / On all fours crying to The Lord / Robber by the headboard / Screaming face or gut / Either or

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Come along with me if you not a f-ck boy
And you on your grizzly
Sing along with me if you stay strapped up
And you rep your city

Verse 3:

They say God made man / Guns make'em equal / This is the evil / That's preached from most southern steeples / Non-whites felt a hate crime's whelps / All over the Bible Belt / NRA spells triple K on police chiefs' lapels / Violence they'll pin it on you / No matter if you a 6 figure ni--a with education that's formal / Appetite for destruction made normal / It's sacrilegious / Not to bow down / To the 2nd amendment / Quentin Tarantino entertainment / Flip the bird to love / So there's enough fingers pointed for the blaming / Bodies leaking / Keeps the economy draining / The hood angry shooting folks like them / I saw self hatred aiming / A Smith and Wesson 500 Magnum / To make 500 toe tag'ems / Of random bystanders / Handsome bullets / Make flesh ugly / Cripple a muthaf-cka / Now a wheelchair's his buddy

"Drink On Me" lyrics from "Herecember 20NOW"


Hey baby
I know you're getting ready to leave
There's a snack in the kitchen if you're hungry
And I made your favorite drink
It's nice and wet
Just like me


Sweetness with the coke bottle shape
Dirty Martini flirting
She texting for weeks about sex on the beach
Lord have mercy
No need to be thirsty
Let's drink it up right now
Bubbling Baby
Bubbling Baby
Bubbling Baby
Bubbling Baby
Bubbling Baby
C'mon on
Let's drink it up right now

Verse 1:

Ooohwee want you to do me / No lie / Your onion booty / Made a ni--a's / Eyes water / To overprotective fathers / Texting daughters after 12 am / She giving me heaven for the hell at home / I'm just saying / Senior year I made her favorite song / All night long / She waiting for me to drop balls / In her beer pong / In the moment had her foaming in the thong and / She reciting C Breezy / In staccato / I like her vibrato that was banging from the bottle / Freaky sh-t / Emoticon arousal / Fingers cumming / Text an eggplant / Toss your salad all summer / Naw leave that for your ex / Oh he was an a--hole / Spill your emotions baby / I'll pour you a glassful

Let's cha cha / To the sunrise / You and I / Tonight
With sippy cups / We pour it up / You top shelf / I'm being real

Chorus (repeat 1x)

Verse 2:

Your homies hating from the jump / Remember when we met up / Arrested your heart from the first pump / They thought it was a set up / I said "hi" / They rolled they eyes / On some ni--a please / Bitter chickens wanting you to be a side piece / You took a risk with / Proved I wanted more than your biscuits / Bad ting / Driven to get your bread up / Hungry for a king / It seems queens can get fed up / You shot down suitors / Then I took your ammunition / Cooking up for the future / Pots and pans in the kitchen / The homie say I'm spoiled / We sacked up sipping Crown Royale / Supreme diva / Let me be your teacher / Let's have a coronation / Over Coronitas

Went from Minute Maid to Fruit Punch / To TMZ wanting to know / How we do brunch / And like my mimosas prefer you bottomless / Love it when you tipsy / Because your head / Be the sloppiest / Baby is the business / True partnership
