Track Name: What Up
Verse

To go from needed to nuisance on tightrope walking this noose
To needs of virgin fiend pussies generation feelings be loose...
Generation feelings be loose
from core believers to follows tweeters religiously WHO!

Appears to be the newest god on this Twitter charts
with the media screamin’ out GOD! Look at me too!
Drug addiction to be liked, tagged, followed retweeted
and then repeated so to not lose relevance...

Ima make evident as Gilligan, Breaking Bad
with colour depictions paintin’ a picture perfect scene scenario,
to follow crowd is to comfort until your desperate in desperado
Oh No - he ain’t the type to break the stereo

But what’s the stereotype,
What if I’m the stereotype?
I mean I fuckin’ love my voice maybe I should marry the mic!
Because it didn’t seem to work with thoughts of marrying her...

(Whoa whoa whoa man pause that pause that pause that
man why you always gotta do that shit JuLS?
I mean I’m just sayin’ let that shit go!...Aite?)

Rewind, stop, play that back, moving forward as I!

Intervene and intertwined, interchanged
Interfaced and interlaced, into space!
To outer thoughts of outer space
from out of love and out of hate
from in-and-out-and-in-and-out-and-out-and-in-again!

Close the window on innuendos with easy breezy’s
I’m breathin’ air into these beats, CPR repeatin!
No cancer sticks, I’m sick of socializing for no reason
I’d rather season vocabulary throughout the seasons!
That goes for anybody sufferin’ from diseases,
sufferin’ from peasant - sufferin’ from leases
with’yo heart set on leaving - now yo heart’s barely beating
I’m as honest as my sleeve is,
I’m just saying What Up...

I don’t worry bout who’s next, I’m just saying
What Up...
I ain’t trippin’ bout my ex, I’m just saying
What Up...
Da Lai Lama on my quest, I’m just saying
What Up...
In yo presence with my gift, I’m just saying
What Up...

And I don’t blame gravity for this!

See Ima young go-getter, Soulful spitter
Flow Walls of Jericho, no forfeiter!
Expose counterfeits, soulless scribblers
who be talkin’ bout cash they ain’t got, go figure!
Fake ass rappers, Pinocchio figures!
Fibbin’ on they flows and they nose got bigger!
Vancouver’s Own Unknown knows better...
Vancouver’s Own Unknown knows better!

Yeeuh! And he’s sayin What Up!
And he’s sayin What Up!
...yeuh, and he’s sayin What Up!

Intro

Verse 1

Been patient way too long
my enemy’s my inner me and bitches kiling me soft...
Said I’d never call a woman no bitch but prove me wrong,
the second all these bitches did me wrong

Loosened my tie and took off my cape
said goodbye to the office and kissed Lois Lane
said goodbye to my old ways
hello to a new day...

Yea I’m taking the leap of faith and you can’t

Catch me! (catch me)
Baby I’m falling! (falling)
Ain’t lookin’ for safety baby,
you ain’t gotta call me (call me)

I ain’t comin’ back - Ah! Ah!
I ain’t comin’ back - Ah! Ah!
Ima be too high, Ima be sky high to parachute back - Ah! Ah!

I know I promised (promised)
I’d never leave ya (leave ya)
But babygirl - you know I ain’t ready to keep ya (keep ya)

You’ll never leave, just trust!
and take my hand!
this ain’t goodbye, Ima show you why
Ima help you un-der-stand!

Verse 2

Been thinkin’ way too much,
been drinkin’ way too much,
I haven’t seen enough
ain’t flyin’ straight so much - my cape’s all fucked, Ah!

Know that Sky’s The Limit
verse on The Tenfluence was hittin’
meant every word,
so until my name’s engraved on heaven’s gates - with the greats
I’m sober flying straight
Ms. Hourglass ain’t on my side
I turned that bitch sideways and I said Fuck’it!

Ima fly if it’s the end of me
Ima take this shit beyond pi
and rocket to infinity
was never good at math, but remembered what you said to me
embedded in my memory, you told me that you’d wait for me

And baby you’ve been waitin - been waitin’ for so long!
I’m finally who you want me to be, did it take too long?
You’re the one who said I would make it
Here’s the keys like I promised
Let’s getaway, let’s drive away
matter fact take my hand!

Verse 1

Fuckin’ with my crossword puzzle
that’s asking for trouble
Thought I wouldn’t know this shit
ain’t you fuckin’ notice yet?

I don’t ask for much
Life is a bitch, life is a broad
Life is a dream in a real fast car
with money from the sky pouring down from, God!

What we pray for
Living through pain for that paper
People knees down, Jesus for the lotto
Betting their kids’ birthdays

Bet the fuckin’ house!
...bet the fuckin’ house
5 across and 10 down
19 red, shots all around
13 hits, heart sinkin’ down...

Ironic shit, workin’ so hard for this moment

You ain’t know shit! x2

Verse 2

Money root of all when the cash flow’s on
then the rich get more
Money root of all when the cash flow’s gone
then the poor get poor

Barely broke, bare feet walks
Bear crawl through, bearing dough
For her rent, 4 years spent
Four year old, four-play dead I know
That’s life!

Survival of the fittest
single mother in the gym get fitted
Feelin’ denims ain’t no longer fittin’
Tighten up that ass ka-blam-PLOW!

...said Mr. Plow
That’s my name, that name again
I say again, I’m saving while
he’s making that, she taking that

She gives it back, she gives him needs
He gives her security,
she on her knees unhappily
but rent is paid, so naturally

contractually she feels,
obligated in heels to
feed the man’s ego to...
feed her little man I know, I know, I know

Verse 3

Highs and lows
But who really knows, when nobody knows
Everybody talks, but nobody sees
People shallow end, people drowning deep

People quick to judge
People quick to speak
Drug dealer fears, for family
Insanity, for sanity

Yosimte Sam, no sanity
Man in the wild here chasing the same shit
Tryin’a make ends meet, sitting complacent
Dude dreams big, but sleeps in the basement
Wakes to his plan A running his race man

And girl talk’s one of the same
Who’s realer than fake
Fuck fame, fuck makeup today
While facelift friends proclaim
“You need change”, she says
“Why disguise good brains”
Track Name: Spaceship
Intro

Searchin’ for serenity symphony serendipity simile
silly me I was confused with my own synthesis - if
only I foresaw, things I foresee now, further than far seas
land of opportunity I!
Pity the old me, I! Woulda told me to,
own these feelings of nervousness
I couldn’t grasp...hold...
clutch, grip, clinch and every other synonym of
knowin my own well known gift
vivid timid memories like scorin’ your first kiss
yearnin’ for the chase of somethin’ real - never forfeit
If it wasn’t love it was money - the whole stretch
addicted to this drug known as life - the full fix
wanting the attainable, go through the hardships
sense out of nonsense,
fuck all the bullshit,
bullseye targets in line now it’s only just a matter of time...

Verse 1

You talk like you got it,
Talkin’ the talk, but you ain’t walkin’ about it
Talk like you know it when you ain’t know shit about it
You talk like you own it, I talk like I want it

In layman’s you lame
Payin’ strippers homie, I’m paying mind!
You fuckin’ bad bitches, I’m fuckin’ nice dimes!

See you got Nos in your ride

Verse 2

High on your plane shit,
Everybody nowadays on some plain shit,
It’s fuckin’ predictable
fuckin’ predicament
fuck all the ignorance...

See I’ve tangoed with the devil like Robert Neville
I’ve rebelled against, the treble and bass
to care for the cure!
The cure for the truth is in precision
so precisely watch what Ima do! shiiiiit

Ima take yo A and B rhyme scheme here mon frere
Add a touch of Francais, put it in, right there!
see your girl wanted French for a little bit of tongue
But I don’t share taste with the tasteless

And homie you taste lust, I taste love!
I procreate, fucker you just pre-cum
gave her the diction - I ain’t fuckin with yours
what I tell you in the first place, huh -

tryin to please everybody with yo fake ass, candy coated cream puff ass
you know what matter fact...get the fuck up off my spaceship man!)

Verse 3

Steppin’ to me’s like, steppin’ to Cassius Clay-more mines!
Ready to go off at any minute now
Rope-a-dopin’ with time
Rope-a-dopin’ my rhymes
Rope-a-dopin’ to great heights!

On to this tightrope, y’all thinkin’ I might choke
I’m thinkin’ of mic-check, y’all thinkin’ I’m cocky
I’m thinkin’ I might just
Prove confidence is prominent
without talkin’ bout “these hoes I get”
without talkin’ bout “this dough I got
just to make it fuckin’ rain, no overcast!”

WOOOOOO!

Hook

Ask me how I’m doin’ now homie - I be good I be good
Couple years ago, I’d be fuckin’ flyin...
Oasis...all day all night
I was gettin’ drunk I was gettin’ high

Damn shorty you..fine!
Lookin’ good gawdayum, back then I be slurrin’ on my lines
Oasis...all day all night
I was gettin’ drunk I was gettin’ high out my mutha’fuckin mind

Bridge

Couldn’t see where I was goin’
couldn’t tell you if I opened up my eyes...
Wasn’t trying to be foolish
more like ‘check it, we could do this every night...’

Do this every night, we could do this every night...
yeuh, every morning like...
why...the fuck...did I..

Verse 1

Goin’ through some shit like every kid who was around me
Thinkin’ that you know me, you ain’t know a thing about me
Bendin’ with the truth became the truest thing about me
I became compulsive with the thought of being not me...

Couldn’t walk words, couldn’t talk straight
thoughts were delayed, thoughts were reversed
in my mind I was hurt, but I numbed all touch
so to not give a fuck about the world - my views were

Chatter box vision with the crew lookin’ kodak
151, A-Dub was our Moet
Pocket full of bombers we was mah’fuckin rollin’!
Made some extra dollars in the club gettin’ lifted like Legend did,

I was Ordinary!...
Blues Clues had JuLS extraordinary,
but I couldn’t fight the feeling couldn’t knock
shorty’s ass was readin’ 10 like a fuckin Russian Rocket

Verse 2

Now I done gone through my share
of breathalyzers and passed, don’t ask how shit I don’t even know
throwin’ back gold bottles of patron
with a couple of caps to relax mind from torso

shit I remember now -
that was the same night Pacquiao, took it right to Cotto...
we celebrated up in the club
I must’ve blacked out, woke up when the sirens went off

The scene was quiet because everybody shut the fuck up
I packed a 7-seater with 8, and me in the front
the cop was sayin’ I was swervin’ but never once did I slur
“I’m the designated driver, not a single drop sir”

(So you wouldn’t mind stepping out of your car and taking a breathalyzer then)

..shit, man I was thinkin’ I’m fucked
I took a big breath, blew out
“Yup! He’s good!”
wooord? - even I drove off like ‘what the fuck’

Hook

Ask me how I’m doin’ now homie - I be good I be good

Intro

Cops coming y’all fuckers thought I done stole this flow
my life’s in these bars so who’m I stealing from...
mama said follow yo dreams
so why the fuck would I be runnin’ from what I been chasin’ for

[Cop’s Voice]

Verse 1

Say it, go’head, say I’m fuckin crazy
that I got some, crazy disorder of thinkin’ abnormal shit,
thinkin’ outside of the box, boxin’ robotic thoughts,
smile if I get popped...even Uncle Manny dropped

I’m leadin’ with my best foot forward
it’s either you or me I am no pushover,
it’s Ether-Takeover,
it’s Griffin or Perk’s shoulders shit,
play or be played or it’s game over...

Real change, backpack brain kid
played the cards I was dealt then I lit’em like Gambit,
gambled on the streets even attempted to slang shit,
but didn’t wanna have my parents go through the same shit - NAW!

Same pain, knees on the pavement,
tears up on my shoulders when the news started breakin’,
my homie’s mother asked me “what the fuck was he thinkin’!”
I caught myself askin’ the same shit

What the fuck was he thinkin’ - shit
What the fuck are you doin’ JULS?!
I was proof of hypocrisy shit
with the life I was choosin’ yall!

Just a matter of time before this nightmare turned lucid
Adjusted my rear-view, drove off to the future
said let’em know I got soul

[Cop’s Voice]
Cops comin’ y’all fuckers thought I done stole this flow

Verse 2

I’m in the presence of, somthin’ greater than,
whatever the quadratic equation is,
success is a word we all stretch!
What’s money and power without respect!

With value perceived,
it’s hard to believe what comes next, but it comes next,
cuz value to me,
is fuckin rockin’ crowds like a legend

With a timeless flow, with the spotlight on
I witnessed my favourite rapper then witnessed his favourite rapper
Legends from AZ, to the God MC
I shook they hands and knew exactly who I would be

Shit Ima be just like them, except Ima be me,
Like EveKey with Reason Ima share my reason through beats
Ima show y’all my purpose, that purpose is worth it
Ima tell the whole world that I’m Just Unique!

Cop’s comin’ y’all fuckers thought I done stole this flow

Verse 3

I found myself I found my gift
quit all that stupid shit,
quit all the booze and all the drugs
that nearly killed me man,

His lights were beamin,
but really shit was a reflection of,
My whole life flashin’ before my eyes hit that Civic I!

Slammed on to the brakes, caught!
One-two-many breaks, I!
Started payin’ attention, Universe I’m here to listen
Universal mindful message,
Don’t take for granted the blessings surroundin’ your presence Naw,
Be fuckin greatness y’all!

Ain’t nothin’ sure in life, you better hold on
Reality’s unreal that must make me an oxymoron!
Because I’m chasing somethin’ bigger than what’s normal
While these normals lookin’ at me like I be some fuckin’ moron!

This for my mom’s and my pop’s
This for my brothers - Ima showoff all the lessons they taught!
This for my best homies - didn’t have fathers around to see that they
THE BEST HOMIES! - they father figures and ain’t even know it

This for my team! Rockin’ that Green!
Light Go, Light’s On, just follow my lead!
While I’m following hers, and by hers I mean Eve,
Keys got me goin’ tune out let’s ride with the beat
GOT ME FEELIN’ LIKE!

...that real epiphany feel!

See I done told myself plenty of times
To do plenty in life,
so I put the real into these raps
with these poems of mine,

And if it reaches even one who felt hopeless to know they worth it,
I guess my struggle and come up was on purpose
...told y’all purpose was worth it

And this here’s my reason for breathing - Believe That!
Giving the hopeless something to - Believe In!...

I’ll caffeine my intentions
Inject my Inception
Workin’ under pressure
My discreet proression...

I live with decisions I’ve made from the beginning
cuz who you become means shit if you ain’t Fuckin Representin!

Take time to decide!
If you wanna start a family,
respect all the hours inspired!
If you wanna go to school, be prepared to do time!
Just don’t act like it’s a prison and complain for yo life!

Pay wits to the solace of mind,
cuz mindless mindsets can land-mine ‘less you diamond’ing mines!
I be mining for diamonds!...
Nevermind, don’t mind me,
my mind is bouncin’ on some Cloud 9 shit!
Bouncing on some Cloud 9 shit!
Back to 4th bar, reminiscing bout’ 9-6!
What a fuckin’ good year, man a fuckin’ great year,
Not for the Charlotte Hornets!...

Lakers turned 8 into pure gold...

...Lakers turned 8 into pure gold...

It ain’t how hard you fall it’s how hard you be fuckin willin!...

To make history, not to be history
To be remembered, not to be a distant memory!
Shit Ima do this till my city be accepting me!
That’s Vancity till the mother-fuckin death of me!

Just Soul, Just Lyrical, Just Unique...
EveKey they gon’ feel this just you wait and see,
