Track Name: Manifest
I made the most of what the hand dealt now my name's in foreign lands on a glass shelf I'll be a relic of the era epitomize the grind cause all it takes in getting better ignore the mind that fear sets I sought your ears and tuned mine to a clear yes had to practice patience for a result now the people sharing me go hit that repost the wack can take notes cause life is like a seminar and breath is the admission I wrote my rhymes to make sure I wasn't slippin if I'm gripping mics then I'm grounded I'm thanking god for nights that Im Surrounded by abundance lack I couldn't run with he had a second cousin named worry them two were fleeting always in a hurry paranoid they would see things and repped a void I didn't like their business way too much dissonance developed different interests no hard feelings I just like to keep my distance and focus on my penmanship so when I spit a listener's attentive if my talents are observed then that's icing on existence nature ima serve and improve my transcendence keep enunciation on beat being different is my shine watch me manifest my dreams

Track Name: Life
Yea Listen uh Let me tell ya'll a story its a long long time ago this boy Chaye Tione thats why they used to call me listen
Let's start at cottage Oct 24 85 my heart was harnessed chosen for a journey called humanity moms got handed 4 before me the divine miscarried one thus birth her youngest son Chaye Tione c-sectioned at 11:47 almost lost my life before I got here that coulda been a plot twister cause the cord twisted. 20 some odd years later now they say that boys gifted wit mics vocab the plight just to top it off far from the generic stock hawkin while they bouillon crowds can get their groove on gotta freak these speakers so the page my pen gets loose on I'm super hot boy but I'm not a rapper started writin poems and the beat became a factor I'm actually sayin something they bumpin gums or worse just bustin guns to glorify rollin in a hearse but dog I'm tryin to live tho be 80 on my porch rockin real slow yea just to keep the rhythm show these whippersnappers the man was really spittin I'm tryin to live yo be 80 on my porch rockin real slow yea just to keep the rhythm show these whippersnappers the man was really spittin

Life instead of condemnation apprectiating differences providing variation to get I had to give to live I had to let faith be on my side just to throw away the stress. yo It's a daily struggle my heart and mind they tussle makin sense of what's been normal to me that doubt and defeat frequency was then now it's safe to say that I'm more focused on my wins reconditioned got clearer vision and the glory to him her my spiritual subscription. Redesigned my paradigm with music as my mission and if them haters hate then I'll still be about my business. cause look I'm tryin to live yo be 80 on my porch rockin real slow yea just to keep the rhythm show these whippersnappers the man was really spittin cause dog I'm tryin to live tho be 80 on my porch rockin real slow yea just to keep the rhythm show these whippersnappers the man was really spittin cause look I'm tryin to live yo be 80 on my porch rockin real slow yea just to keep the rhythm show these whippersnappers the man was really spittin
Track Name: Refund feat. Lisa Kim
oh I need that
They said I had to find my lane be original and unafraid of change. At the pick and pull it dawned on me that has always been my motive and my motivation. I shrugged my shoulders and I got a hunch yo innovation can be lonely so without a bunch is where I tend to be doin me on these records love cause if you ain't my demographic then I'm passing ya to persist wit instant classics on the regular. I'm Makin sense of my ambition mixed with obligations keeps me from ever perpetrating with the daily faces of emotion keeping speakers swollen focused on a brighter side immerse you head to toe wit a different vibe I'll hip them cynics to this optimist full of lyrics that one can grow with my hope is that the bogus get a glimpse of dopeness If I say you wack then like ladies that's just fun I'm poking and while you step your bars up I'ma keep these fans from snoring.

My state of mind has no price look at what they sold to me glad I got my receipt now's about that time I get free
My state of mind has no price look at what they sold to me glad I got my receipt now's about that time I get free

I'm cool off cigarettes generic hits and ample wastes of time like unnecessary naps in the middle of your grind people quick to throw their sense in and their contribution none nothin nada just a whole lot of opinions I used to listen too then I heard my intuition. That's been the best map I've ever used at no costs these skippers sound like rip offs call me captain save a soul lately we've been losing those at a fair price right?

It's less than suggested retail these numbers come from thin air so ask again just what exactly am I saving the theories we're debating makes no difference without wisdom this I contemplate up in my kitchen. I stop my raps about the world cause I gotta get nutrition. another day will be here in a minute trying to end this one with some meaning maybe giving a pound a hug or sending off intentions like well wishes my daddy left I beat some stress then I found a way to redefine success By puttin life inside a page while carmack 'll have you feel you like you outta space my skill will take you back to when lyrics meant makin change yo my militance won't let me spit the nonsense that your used to. I cruise through life and write to rythms that improve crews familiar but revolutionary with a sound that lifts you out the gutter man just put them sneakers down

Track Name: Yesterday
Soon as they start speaking them can’ts I know I gotta change the station keep them limits and negation to yourself had to tighten up my belt before I fit my britches knew I had to shine before I could get my riches needed to figure the bigger picture now that focus is the inner possibilities im bound to keep on living til im finished once you make a start theres no more riding on the benches speaking from my heart means that im free to keep on giving im beating stress with the ease of a breath a sigh of relief speaking life keeping it fresh this microphone’s a tool so I gotta give the glory cause nobody could do it for me im kicking loses to the side cause lamping on em tends to be boring look at me soaring vibing with this tempo so cool I make it sizzle some knew since I was little that (nobody) could compare to me

Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me

My name is Chaye but you can call me Seamus yea I just wanna rhyme put my life inside these pages gotta move and shine like the sun between the ages yo when youre on the rise some ‘ll love and some ‘ll hate it no time for the faking cause the truth is always with me I kept it organic to put it simply this raw you gotta dig me I set aside the status cause I knew these bars would lift me couldn’t turn to sadness inspiration came in swiftly. Procrastination is resistance yo these words help me manifest something like a wishlist I tried to tell the closest to me bout discoveries but (nobody) wanted to hear me that couldn’t slow me down for the depth of inner vision gave the momentum for these lyrics dropping in rhythm rabid with a conscious flo you might just call him vicious cause (nobody) can try and dis this

Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me

How bout I write the dopest verse I ever wrote before in hopes to captivate my audience like an emmy winner simply centering myself around this paper and a bic softgel first think spell guess you could say I ink well over instrumentals ive been know to take my mental and project whats in it flippin thoughts like im bisquik this here is original no subliminal biting im writing cause im capable fighting while im able to. Not to concerned with what a hater do my purpose is to get in the biz like a gumshoe and bounce off topics like an anchorman an eyewitness to forgiveness line bending like a congressman filibustin line punchin I fill the gaps to please substance I need nothing but a pen and some paper never mind the vapors I’ll breeze through these lines and embody the creator.

Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me
Yesterday im better than but you could never be a better me

Track Name: Trippin'
I aint tryin to play the victim but listen I cant be trippin off whats continually missing from your thought box ima keep this lock jaw didn’t see punch in a clock so slow your roll boss soupin up rhymes cause spirits all stock to make the false stop yo why they spittin gainin at the expense of the children yo who they kiddin applauding at the thought of some change but keep on sittin stickin to that lack of hope kids’ll tote and smoke. A shallow attempt to grasp a life of meaning yo its shallow cause they fear the unknow aint even breathin words like fear I hope they outgrow and keep on dreaming don’t ease up keep that hate down peace up real before convenience coming out your speakers is what my spirit needed add a different pattern to the frequency you’re feeling healing villains are overrated cages is populated grace is loving a racist. Developed my genius cause some ‘ll sit around and waste it patience tried and tested image is a collective I cultivate and strategize and aim to be respected leaning towards the brighter side im sure to seep my blessings even when youre down and out be sure to shape you heaven limit what is fear and doubt and recognize the present got a royal state of mind and some ‘ll treat me like a peasant but

Dog I aint even trippin off them
Man I aint even trippin off them
Look I aint even trippin off them
I aint even trippin off them
Yo I aint even trippin off them

I gotta focus on my brakthroughs getting what im dreamin speak of act on see me on the rise bet you wonder what I be on makin me takin these steps to improvement don’t like my two cents so I drop gems on a skinny beat following a passion now the ends chasin me so I put em where I need em like associates treating my silence like the gold it is pushing to develop while some meddle in the business of another yo id rather shine than diminish under covers perpetuating lies like a register if im black does it matter what the kettle does start pointing fingers and im running out for there’s three pointing back to keep it relative like a start to the finish or lord to the sinner the raw to beginners you’re peering inside to the mind of a winner my bid is something like a lyrical savior polished this sermon so you see what the brain do I aint trying to take away from God or Jesus keep them hands high cause I’m here to reflect you but I aint finish couple more bars for them critics cause without art theyd just be feelings sympin creation without creating man but when they ask about the mainstream

Dog I aint even trippin off them
Look I aint even trippin off them
Nah I aint trippin off them
Look I aint even trippin off them
I aint even trippin off them
Track Name: Be

And If you cant feel my joy how bout you kick rocks cause they gon play this like a toy wheres the disk jock I just wanna be

Last I wondered if my name would stand the test if time be remembered by generations we left behind I hope they quote my tracks in times of question run it back try to redefine my essence just out of pleasure debate on definitions of what resonated some incite to further violence they're dehumanizing but every verse I write is meant to keep the people smiling cause ive connected with my lows like insufficient funds and now I'm budgeting my woes so I can bank on the moments never bought with em reaching up to grab the sun and maybe pocket it stopping if the sound is forced yo all this pent up energy I'm trying to find the source instead of fixing others id rather lend a ear even the biggest man might turn around and shed a tear after the loss of you fill in the blank cause if a man can feel then it's also possible that that same man can heal
life death abundance lack joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less
Now do people get to veto if equality is an ideal tangible to certain tax brackets and what's more real foreign poverty or them poor folks right here the could be blocks away without a meal to eat we throw away the left overs from earlier this week I know I said I'd make you smile I also make you think what's it worth to play the victim sticking to independence there's only us and them no thoughts of we I either existence. Just ponder and your input actions and your words does it fill the world with judgment the last time I observed I was trippin cause everything is everything and now the world became a place that I could fill me dreams among the life death abundance lack joy pain more less complaining on behalf of apathy the unpleasantries the petty brought me up to choose and prove the possibilities in
life death abundance lack Joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less life death abundance lack joy pain more less
Wishin on tears like falling stars who grants these wonder a motto if forward I'll follow a path of possibilities the past paved with all of my abilities I pass ways that didn't serve a vision blurred
Coulda woulda shoulda gotta act now by getting up and moving yea that's how I make a change can't stay the same dreams will stay dreams without the goals in between
Line em up don't back down chin up wit your chest out i'll be the one they ask about i'll be the one they ask about i'll be the one they ask about i'll be the one they ask about
Track Name: I'ma Handle It feat. Lisa Kim
uh yea My ego tryin to get me on that other ish the ladies try to make make have another chick this is just the start ain't even half of it most times I'm way beyond the star while they at the fence. Wishin on a breakthrough man can't nothin break without some common consent you got it made fool. Ditching vices like fourth period extending my experience. How real are your fears when thoughts are limitless? How clear can I steer if drivin consequence my success is too near to let the nonsense in. That's why I treat it like it's contraband write these lyrics rock some fans i verse and over stand what I get from life I'm puttin in. Morphin strife gripping pens writin life to get my wins who's keepin score at the finish line yo all's i know I'm doing more till I'm gettin minE
and what

What ever it takes Ima handle it
My will they can break ima be fine
Whatever it takes ima still shine
Whatever it takes ima handle it
ima handle it
My will they can break ima be fine
Whatever it takes ima still shine
Whatever it takes ima handle it

Now It's been time to get specific so I can reach the lands of living mystics. Make real of my envisions with skilled intention that's written. I'm gonna see those doors of opportunity my hearts been filled with mutiny. breaking off them mental chains i aint a rasta but that Marley plays singin don't worry about a thang now I got my head down grindin wit my soul lifted. disagreements spark some soul shiftin but it's not what happens to you more like what's done for you hate ain't worth a morsel in my thinkin cabinet so once I start to cook it's like an instant classic

What ever it takes Ima handle it
My will they can break ima be fine
Whatever it takes ima still shine
Whatever it takes ima handle it
ima handle it
My will they can break ima be fine
Whatever it takes ima still shine
Whatever it takes ima handle it
