I’ve been workin on this my whole life,
To finally be here boy it feels so right.
I'll never forget this this is a highlight,
Doing what I love that is so tight.
I've made this built brought this from the ground up.
I'm like a father watching my music grow up.
I worked real hard, don't really believe in good luck.
I've got to where I am by being who I am.
Have I made it? Na not even close yet.
You still workin? Boy you better believe that.
So what you doin? I'm celebrating right now.
We took a big step we're so much closer now.

Bojack Horseman in the hills of Hollywoo committing arson,
Trolling PewDiePie that’s why they call me Eric Cartman.
Still loving Roger Rabbit, Oxford magnet on my fridge,
With a shopping list for Tuesday, making anthems for these kids.
Big O and I go hard, we be blasting ballsy beats.
And I’m still down Son Goku call me Dragonball MC.
Waylon Smithers on the mic because I go for the full Monty,
Tracked these vocals on an Apple, pass the 3.5” floppy.
Don’t got the greatest flow, so I spend my nights at home,
With the lights out in bathroom watching space ghost on my phone,
Or maybe rick and morty, won’t stop rapping till it’s boring.
Jasper Beardly on the mic can’t believe I’m nearly forty.
Where’d we park the van? That’s another story,
Cause touring every year feels a lot like Finding Dory.
I heard that Donald won - he’s always frightened me.
Sadder than the plot of Manchester by the Sea,
And we’re taking Pepe back your authority is over.
Re-tweeting Bernie Sanders glad I finally got sober.
With my Vocals sounding crisp, and my levels always balanced,
As I sneak into your playlist just like Putin at the ballot.

I been doin’ it doin’ it on my own dime,
It’s finally paying off and it's blowing up my mind.
If you don't like it that is absolutely fine,
Cause today is my day and this is my time.
I played a show with lars and then he got back to me.
I wanted some northwest dates and he gave me the whole country.
10000 miles seeing things I've yet to see,
And I'm bringing my best friend it's better than I dreamed would be.
Got a DJ Solo track that's a bit of hip hop history,
Gotta feature on that track from a pioneer in this industry.
Got some people who are influential that are working with me.
Gotta lot invested here the test is near it's all up to me.

Track Name: All By Myself
I've been given a chance,
To do what I do.
Won’t take a second glance,
I'll make my future come true.
I don't believe in destiny,
I'll make my path up.
So while they are tellin’ me to grow up,
Imma blow up.
An architect, doctor,
maybe an actress.
Nas said I can do anything it just
takes much practice,
I believe that!
I believe that's so true.
That's why I stand here confidently,
Doin’ what I do for you.
Lemme open up my mind for you.
Lemme show you what it is I do.
Sounds like a dream but not always true.
Lemme do what I need to do.
Not a control freak but I'm in charge.
Creativities locked down my arts at large.
Free mind thinking I can grab the stars.
Whose world is it?
The world is our, the world is our.
Whose world is it?
The world is ours, the world is our.
Nas

Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, ain't nobody else!
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, ain't nobody else!

Imma do me all by myself,
The Lord is my guide I don't need nobody else.
I'm headed in the right direction,
Boy you know I know it's true.
Your thoughts are nice but I thought twice,
I had to keep on pressing through.
You've been given one life,
make sure you make the best of it.
When it all comes to an end,
You’re going to find the throne of judgement.
What will you do? What will you say?
God forbid, but what if it were to all end today?
What did you believe in? It's all up to you.
Imma do me, and you just do you.

Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, ain't nobody else!
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, all by myself,
Imma do me, ain't nobody else!
Track Name: This Song (feat MC Lars)
I've gotta chip on my shoulder,
But I've been getting much bolder.
I’ve got words coming out the way I wanna say with no delay,
I portray what's on my mind today, black and white their ain't to gray.
No confusion I'm straight shootin’
Working hard is what I'm doin’
Can I have your attention please.
Don't ever tell me that I can't do it,
Imma get to work and then I'll prove it.
I’m tired of everyone doubting me.
Imma do what I need to do to be me.
I’ve been workin’ my tail off for four full years,
I’ve been doin’ what I can to get me here,
Don't tell me that I don't belong right here.
Do you see these eyes? I know no fear.
I work real hard I did my time,
It's DIY until I die.
Do it everyday.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die,
Independent Open eye.
Clear vision, on a mission,
What I do is my decision.
Do it every day.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die.
Do it everyday.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die.

This song goes out to those who wouldn't booked me.
This song goes out to those who underpaid me.
This song goes out to those who never believed in me.
This song goes out to those with negativity.
This song goes out to those in my home town,
Who never been to a show to see my live sound.
This song goes out to locals not sticking around.
This song goes out to suckers just like them.

This verse is not my final, still look up to my idols,
They gave me inspiration when I felt so suicidal.
Tendencies to Rise Against anyone back in the scene,
With a negative approach as I’m still living my dream.
I still represent the bay like Steph Curry here’s the remedy,
Down on Greenpoint Ave I’m blasting the dead kennedys.
You haters are Fugazi, I make it rain like Slayer.
Still a Minor Threat even though this G is major.
And I see the earth in crisis, so I’m Sick of it all,
When I see the Youth Today on their iPhones at the mall.
I just want to Pierce the Veil, only for a minute, man,
I’ve always been a misfit since I toured with Simple Plan.
So Myles here’s a tip - keep grinding it will happen,
You spend your mornings rapping, they spend their weekends napping,
And trapping well not really but their Facebook game is solid.
I’d rather spend my day with a coffee reading Ovid

Hard work pays that's what they always told me,
And Now I'm payed the suckers who owe me tryna get ahold of me.
What am I supposed to do about that?
How am I supposed to react?
Should I smile, ignore the fact and just come back?
No No No!
I'd rather eat a sucker,
Kill a sucker dead.
Eat a sucker,
Kill a sucker dead.

This song goes out to those who wouldn't booked me.
This song goes out to those who underpaid me.
This song goes out to those who never believed in me.
This song goes out to those with negativity.
This song goes out to those in my home town,
Who never been to a show to see my live sound.
This song goes out to locals not sticking around.
This song goes out to suckers just like them.
Track Name: That's What I've Been Told
5 o'clock. Bright and early.
Alarm starts sounding, gotta get to work early.
Stoked to have a job gotta pay my rent,
Gotta get that money save it for retirement.
Grab a granola bar on the way out the door,
Half asleep I think of life and that I really want more.
Listen to the radio sitting in traffic,
Gotta negative attitude already that's a bad habit.
Rush in, clock in, and get to working,
Pretend to like your boss and his non stopping talking.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you been told, that’s what I've been told.
I put my time in, a full 8 hour shift.
Made it through the day now I'm done with it.
I'm scared about my time won't know where it went,
And that's a real fear man I ain't being sarcastic.
Get in my car and turn the stereo off,
I'm literally supposed to be a better me stop.
Why should I care to die a normal guy that's my thought.
They build me up then watch me drop, they make hot then cool me off.
I trade a 3rd of my day so they can get they product off.
That's a 3rd of my life that I'm missing,
A 3rd of my life that I need,
That's a 3rd of my life that's really pushing me to succeed.
But I should be happy with where I'm at a lotta people have it worse then me.

That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.

Four full years yea I'm breaking it in,
2017s my year I can feel it within.
Don't always do what I'm told and I'll say it again,
This is my life and I'll live it right to the end.
I ain't talkin about fame. I ain't talkin about the glory.
I ain't talkin about the money. I'm talkin about my life story.
What I do, who influence, how I help the youth,
My work is coming together right now what I do is the proof.
And the kids these days that's the next generation,
If I don't live my dream then what am I saying?
Should I quit give in and become a statistic?
Or should I dig right in? I think I'm willing to risk it.
I put it all on the line without seeing a dime,
I think it's finally time for me to get what's mine.
And I hope you do the same!
The world is yours. You ain't gotta do what they say.

That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
That's what I've been told, that's what I've been told,
Always do what you've been told , that's what I've been told.
Track Name: Good Days Bad Days
Good days come,
Good days go.
Good days always welcome here,
Good days what I live for.
Bad days come,
Bad days go.
Bad days never welcome here,
Bad days won’t you stay clear.
Every days a fresh start,
Start out with a loving heart.
Gotta give the day chance,
Start out with a joyful dance.
Life's to good to start out bad,
It's your choice to make life rad.
Even when the hard times hit,
Dig real deep and show some grit.
Today's your day so make it real,
You're in charge so make the deal.
You are you and that's the best,
Live life well now that's the test.
The world is crazy that is true,
Love them all but take care of you.
With a big smile on my face,
All good days is how I set my pace.

Good days come,
Good days go,
Good days always welcome here.
Bad days come,
Bad days go,
Bad days make me stay clear.
Good days come,
Good days go,
Good days always welcome here.
Bad days come,
Bad days go,
Bad days make me stay clear.


In this crazy time in life the world is going insane,
Naturally I just wanna close my brain put on a video game and point the blame.
But I can't do that I gotta stay involved,
Love for all that's problem solved.
It's not that easy people fight it,
Scared of something new so they won't try it.
But that's where we come in.
Community bonds when we join in.
So let's take the problem work to solve it,
Like a science project we'll devolve it.
People come together all for one reason,
Its real life that were living so you better be believing,
The number one thing we need to work on is communication,
That will improve our relation.

Good days come,
Good days go,
Good days always welcome here.
Bad days come,
Bad days go,
Bad days make me stay clear.
Good days come,
Good days go,
Good days always welcome here.
Bad days come,
Bad days go,
Bad days make me stay clear.
