Track Name: Family Values
Wanna talk about my family/
Cause I know that they'll be there for me/
Like they know that I’ll be there for them/
Through the good and even bad times/
Wanna talk about my family/
All our trials and our tribulations/
All our smiles and our vindications/
Keep our family keep our family values strong/

Verse 1
Wanna talk about my family, Moms a backbone - Pops he been gone - but he’s back now!
That’s the music you hear of pure joy up in the background/
My Big Bro V holding us down, My Big Bro E holding us down/
And they have families of their own, takes some real men to raise families and not to leave families alone/
My older Sister C made me tougher, prepared me for this world even when times got rougher - I felt no pain/
My Sister M see I feel your pain, family is family despite of distance – it’s the lack of persistence in communication/
Blood is blood in these veins see we're still connected; lets pass these jewels to the next generation/
And to my nephews and nieces family is family always/


Verse 2
As I pass through these hallways of my lifetime, I wanna see a stronger family in this lifetime/
And it’s not about just spitting a nice rhyme, I want these words to touch every family member/
Even my cousins that I never met, how you been cuz? Where you been cuz? I understand fate has kept us apart/
But through this song I touch your soul so keep it in your heart and forever it’s there like the musings of a final start/
To my extended Fam, no blood ties - but we closer than most, dips in pools where love lies, and the haters they boast/
No time for indecision and back stabbing, no time for cheap talk only the ones that loath blabbing/
It’s sad when love is lost and residuals tragic, when hearts beat with metal veins but recipients plastic/
So when time passes and I happen to catch a short pause, just realize that family is not a lost cause/

Keep our Family; Keep our family values strong x 3
Keep Our Family Value Strong…x3
Track Name: I Cared
Facebook activity Log – 2009 or is it 2010?
I can’t even remember
But yeah
How are you doing?
This one is for you…
You know who you are…

Verse 1
Well it started off online your man a mutual friend/
But I didn’t wanna indulge, I didn’t wanna offend/
I could see that you were a Beauty, more beauty than most could see/
If Beauty lies with Beholder, this Beauty is mad deep/
Can’t remember that first little message you sent/
But I remember we went on and on and on/
And I will be the first to admit, that I was taken by your gracious soul/

Do you even care, if I’m here or gone x 2
Through the rain and through the fire/
You’re always my desire and I Cared/
And I Cared/

Verse 2
Then there was that first call, a voice of an Angel/
I couldn’t believe that I was privileged enough speak/
To reach to you, somehow I could I teach/
I wanted to seek but it’s more like I preached to you/
You and dude was having problems but I didn’t care/
I just wanted to make you smile so we could be a pair/
You told me in the night hour of 03/
That you longed for my touch the right hour to hold me/
Maybe it was Dreams speaking cause you were half asleep/
And I was half as weak, so we can do the math and keep/
1 + 1 = 2 hearts 2 but one heart hurt, still on the mend and I was trying to defend/
Reached the wanted end but only reached the carpet bend/
Where friends catch feelings and talking about A plus dealings/
And I will be the first to admit, that I was taken by your gracious soul/

Verse 3
There was that first chance meeting, my eyes steady gazed/
Your eyes met mine yes! I was amazed/
You were trying to expand your reach to other parts of this world/
I was trying to expand my reach to this girl/
I understand you had values, I grew to respect that/
Set my agenda from the start, I was trying to inject that/
I could sense you had doubts but I could sense feelings too/
Can’t ignore butterflies and chemicals reciprocal/
Life like a Hype magazine where centerfolds are pivotal/
And Baby girl I wanted to make you the centre of my world/
I probably lacked the right ingredients that made your perfect man/
I had the characteristics of the dude before last but that is the past/
You never to let it go; I am Zion’s rivers this Liquids deep, you need to let it flow/
And I will be the first to admit – that we were never meant to mix as two souls.
Track Name: De La Rue
We ain’t talking bout De la rue, its Giesecke and Devrient on this avenue x 4
Verse 1
Wells it 50 years on away from colonial rule but we're still being governed by colonial tools/
Monetary policies, when will set our minds free - they said being African is poverty disease/
The age of Ebola - the age of choice so I can pick between a Benz or Corolla/
Friends on my shoulders; messiah complex - bottled water soon they're gonna bottle sex- so what is next/
No flex zone - music's digressed no wonder we're so vexed homes/
In old age homes, when will the cancer catch up from minutes these cellphones/
We already living this, we're not living bliss, so heaven call - Angels fall that I never missed /
These are the rantings of a columnist/


Verse 2
Zambia we're Fifty years young, let us groom our land/
We can do so much - with both feet and hands/
Tell our leaders they needs kulibe va chikonko/
kulibe vo kudya, tiza liza ma mpoto/
Yes indeed the land is rich where resources lie/
So take the land and grow your dreams let resources lie/
Child of the motherland, it’s your birth right/
Abuse the environment, destroy the Earth right?
Being a Black man is not a curse right? It’s a mental struggle we fight get out the Trap!
So what is Rap - it’s an Expressive form - made to feel like an outsider - so what’s the norm?
These are the rantings of a columnist/

Hook x 8
Track Name: Fly Away
Verse 1
Twas about 07 me and Pope, totally Zoned out music our hope/
Al Kani Introduced us to the homie Dope - We made the Zone Fam - Phonies couldn't cope/
Then we met Roxa - they said he was a boxer - they brought Bars, like Foreign direct cars, who wanted a masterpiece - we wanted to paint ours/
Verbal would Battle lists - he burnt scripts like an Arsonist/
Thugga the Wiz Kid Lsk wasn't ready for em - these solo cats - burn rubbers like its pirellis on em/
The Voltron Team - they wanna take mo shots but those Glean, right off the side of my head/
They wanna kill Hip Hop but it ain't Dead/

Me and the Homies we still a Team/
Since 2010 yo we shared a dream/
So we can smile today/
We built some paper planes so we could Fly Away/
Me and the Homies we still a Team/
Since 2010 Yo we shared a dream/
So we can smile today/
Believe in yourself you can Fly Away/
(Just Believe you’ll Fly Away)

Verse 2
2010 we made that full script, Teck-Zilla the Beast with Beats Ripped/
Africa was watching with Shaka Zulu On Em but all we really wanted was to chuck a dokkie on em/
30million viewers in 2011, award shows, Business Effex, it must have been heaven/
My brothers handled it well, cause even stones shine and past beefs we would never dwell/
Alky went the solo route and I became the Manager, it’s still Fam and I would never take advantage of/
Cameras flash, we wanted that money fast - but it takes more than cash to double that honey's glass/
It’s still an open chapter, the Book of Zone - live happily ever after/
It’s still SDR - they battling open wounds from the pesky bars/
