1. LAAMB

1. Introduction:

Waw parce que kham nga mbeur mou nék dafa am thiossane

[Yes, because every wrestler has traditions]

Teh si biir waye yoyou, et, moy tah nga kham sa thiossane,

[And from those songs, you will know your traditions]

Gnou wayal la sa ndiambar

[They will sing of your bravery]

Ba takh na so nekkon ben, fouk ngay don

[And it will boost your energy from one to ten]

1. HPrizm:

As times change

My mind frame elevates

Faster

Self-law and mastery is my aim

My destiny’s imminent

Every angle I enter from’s forming a pyramid

For the here and now

Jewels I find

Under three-fourths water

From flooded streets I was brought up

Now in this era facing the ramifications

Of blocks to the occupation

As bars over propaganda

They criminalize the victim

Then the truth sets in

Contrasted drastically faces, casted from plastic

Smile back wickedly

No mask on

Readjusting back happily

Rapidly after tragedy

Casually

Now the mask is off, the masquerade is over

Now the mask is off, the masquerade is over

And now the mask is off, the masquerade is over

Now the mask is off, the masquerade is over

2. ARE YOU IN PEACE?

2. HPrizm:

I’m independent but augmented by being in it

Stayed ill, never intended on blending in

Depend and the pen still spraying an aerosol

You hear a call over the landscape

Vocally you feelin’ my hands move

Somethin’ like lettin’ the can spray

Left hand’s holding my sun up

Right hand putting the skyline at night time

Painting in works in outlines to build

 

To wake us up

It took fire water and thunder to break the spell

Magnetic memory over me

As a force field to cover me

The heel in the cut recovery

Mirrors to reflect another me

Puttin’ in work from a chain but it changed things

Let’s build

4. ORIGINE

4. HPrizm:

Within space, within time

Without space, without time

First we extend the lens to zoom in on

Seeing new positions beginning from right now

Patterns mean seeing the system break down

My seeds came weighing the same as a four pound

To raise them, not changed in, I gave them

Tools to read constellations

Their origin

Without space, without time

Their origin

4. Gaston Bandimic:

5. COGNITION

5. HPrizm:

Some may never see it

But I’m standing in it

Something in the structure helps me hear the

Double over interference

When I’m in the state of mind to make a movie

It’s a motion picture

First I fix the lens

Quiet on the set

My team is winning

We’re up

This is heaven sent

This one is all us

All black we carry the pass and the casket

To the next level, we’re movin, then zoomin’ on

This

Hesitation, step across and

Like Iverson to the next dimension

Had to pivot

Punctuated the spaces with this

Freeze the frame, change the game

Freeze the frame, change the game

6. HYBRID

6. HPrizm:

From a tradition

Watchin’ my fire cookin’ in the kitchen

Watchin’ the kettle steam, the levels bubble over

From a rooftop overlooking the city

The kettle whistles a signal, I get the pen out

Documenting ripples of waves of rage

Became Hannibal, study strategy that’s my anatomy

My mentality gradually shifted from monetary to radical

No imagination, only my real life

Pulse over drums, hope to show what it feels like

To open sealed locks thinking out of a box

Now in this life time

For my G Lifelong

I’m insulated, I made it this way

No hate infiltrated, I came in aimin’ with spraying

With games played

My namesake

How live are you

There’s a revolution, where are you

Walking through fire either scars you or it charges you

How live are you

There’s a revolution, where are you

Walking through fire either scars you or it charges you

Heat rises

Heat rises

6. Gaston Bandimic

[Symbiosis of types, White House ghetto]

Guiss lepp si yaw deh dound leu

[Seeing everything in you is a way of life]

7. DUALISM

7. HPrizm:

And then a voice said

Find your way

Navigate through the triple stage

Through another stage of development

Add the elements through ritual to chisel with skill

So, let’s build

Third, open up to reveal what’s less real

67 million away that’s light years

I was raised up in Egypt, it’s over here

That’s why Isis greet me with open wings

Until the day the ancestors greet me with open arms

Scattered ash, empty cigars on park benches

Stared at my reflection in project elevator mirrors

So when you hear me you’re hearing the spirit

Uninhabited, the game was haunted

They put hexes and spells on it

Me being a master of ceremony

Performing in cyphers I decipher with writin’ to help brighten

Lines like to cross in a planetary alignment

Line like I’m fresh out of solitary confinement

The truth is

The booth is

No place for excuses

No ceilings over me

Roofless

Over triple beams

I’m weightless

From a dream

And then a voice said

Wake up

Find your way

Navigation through the triple stages
