Break It Down

about

Life happened. I needed to release some rage and use the music as therapy. You could say a certain string of events unleashed my inner lion from its cage. This is the result.

lyrics

disrupt the habits before they disrupt you,
walk around like some zombies but we got no clue,
better stop and ask some questions before you make your move,
derail off the tracks, landslide, loose caboose,
missing all the comforts of my hometown,
missing simple times, it's so hard now,
complicated, complex, we on a roll down,
destroy to rebuild until I take the crown,
gonna hand it to my queen so she knows who's the realest,
a lion in this jungle trying to show them who's the illest,
motivate my team, they rise up when they feel it,
momentum strong but bad hands they keep dealing,
rise above the ashes as I crash through the ceiling,
cast the net wide to get more fish for the feeding,
got a small army and we down for some feasting,
raise these kids up to guarantee they ain't heathens.

hook (x2)

let me break it down,
I came to melt the crown,
crack the walls with my sound,
hear the lion roar now,
digging through these trenches,
ethic so relentless,
keep chasing wishes,
while we blow this off the hinges.

better hope he don't find me chilling upstate,
better hope he don't realize I'm in first place,
baby powder, smack a fool, all in good tastes,
this old school pimpin', true kings accept their fate,
you can't imagine the pain I've endured,
you've never walked your boots through manure,
the frequencies I dictate are nothing short of pure,
surrounded by a sickness so I'm searching for the cure,
and if I never find it, know I died trying,
you hiding in your secrets and slowly dying,
feel that karma coming for you, I'm the pilot,
as soon as I see you I'ma start a riot,
this Hip Hop it don't stop, I told you it don't quit,
a fire breathing dragon when my soul starts to spit,
feel the heat rising as the steam starts to lift,
i see this as a curse but some call it a gift.

hook (x2)

let me break it down,
I came to melt the crown,
crack the walls with my sound,
hear the lion roar now,
digging through these trenches,
ethic so relentless,
keep chasing wishes,
while we blow this off the hinges.

read between the lines, I know that you feel this,
raging through these pages I am suddenly fearless,
music is the one thing that's never betrayed me,
on this grind until I shine, fuck you, pay me,
too many dudes been trying to fuck with my lady,
y'all about to see the beast, watch me go crazy,
universe been pitching me curve balls lately,
calm it down, hit the bong, let me get hazy,
...back with a vengeance,
ride to this beat, let me know how you feeling,
it's pouring down rain and there's holes in my ceiling,
wipe the tears away through these layers I am peeling,
...it's the truth that I seek,
the meaning of that word changes every other week,
keep the music spinning as I dig through the crates,
you can keep on sleeping but I'm fully awake.

hook (x2)

let me break it down,
I came to melt the crown,
crack the walls with my sound,
hear the lion roar now,
digging through these trenches,
ethic so relentless,
keep chasing wishes,
while we blow this off the hinges.
