[Big Rube] This is the reclamation A proclamation of intent to distribute a wealth of healthy knowledge My folks need a lifeline This dope need a pipeline Seek and you shall find the grind of the mind’s eye Turned a blind eye hastily Can’t recover time wasted We discover by design every kind of complacency Overcome the latency that’s seeded in your spirit Avoid the false fear, it suffocates your soul’s lyrics Drowns you in your sorrows, leaves no hope for tomorrow Fills the mind with self-doubt while the heart is left hollow Swallow all the pride and prejudice that guides That evil men do, don’t just intend to The road to hell is paved, the day can still be saved So seize the sunlight, don’t grieve for one night ‘Cause life’ll fly past you much faster than it has to Eternal is the struggle, we feel the time passing But the cosmos is a bubble and the fight is everlasting… [Josefina Cerafica Flores] "...One patient told me that I am everything to everybody One patient referred to me as the 'quarterback' I try to direct the patient to where they're supposed to go At the same token, I'm also a patient advocate I can be their sister, I can be their primary care doctor sometimes even though I'm not a doctor ...most especially...and from their family...so we try to put them all together, so... ...tryna put everything, all the pieces together, And make into one big patient, one person.."
[yU] Breathe...knowwhatImean Deep breath taking steps forward, never back and that's Just the way I'm living, driven, taken to the max I mean how can I relax when my Pops he didn't nap until he passed School of life, honor grad, he would laugh When quitters give him the grimace face all balled up You could call on us, less down, more up I gotta rhyme for every tick-tock there is to a clock You hear the...drop, that was just a heartbeat On and on and on shaking shatan up off me We just wanna do our thang and understand our role Make ancestors proud, God bless 'Oooh Child' Cool been a brotha's mood since I was 2 and that ain't no new style We put on the ones who put you down, youknowI'msayin? The meek are the great, lift the ultimate weight Knowing health is your wealth, put your thoughts in a bank I'm just a king making awesome mistakes, hey... [Drew Dave] Yeah...if you look into my eyes you can tell I'm hungry Never wellin', dummy, we don't need to lie So whenever we roll up, brotha, please don't be surprised How my whole crew shining like we don't need the light How my whole crew grinding like we don't need a mic But spit the dopest sh*t you ever heard I never realized that I could spit a verse Until I realized I had the illest words so I had to kill it, hearse Yeah, and now it's time to switch beat And keep it moving like the slick keys, lightning fast, blitzkrieg To all my brothas, get that Krisp-Kreme Until I'm ch-ching cashing out these 16's Back when I was 15 I started to flip things Cause Michael Carter made them beats seem flawless Used to keep my feelings under wrap tryna guard sh*t But now I put them all up in my music, this is God's gift// Oooh Child...
