Track Name: You Know When its iLL (Intro)
Chorus (Hook)

Do You Know When its iLL,
Do You Know When its iLL,
Do You Know When its iLL,

Intro:

Welcome to the Album,

Do you know when its Hot,
Do you know when its Cold
Do you know when its Young,
Do you know when its Old,

Do you know when its New,
Do you know when its True,

V1.
Do you know when its got that glow,
Ready to blow,
Don't really think so,
Don't really think so,

When its got that glow,
Don't really think so,
You a coat tail drag er,
You a coat tail drag er,

Don't really think so,
You know you got,
A whole new swagger,

Now let me go and get that
Hit that Rip that,
Don't think you know when its hot,

Got that heat behind it,
With knowledge that keeps them climbing,
Telling truths no time for lying,
Making moves like a hungry lion,

Other rappers don't think they trying,
Making excuses steadily crying,
Steadily crying I stay on triumph,
Stay grinding like Pusha T,

Call me Pusha E or Manny Duke,
MD that main directive,
I check the method,
Or check the message,

Coming thru with real music,
Classic drum set,
ha real music don't think you heard the line,
Classic drum set,

8-piece Tama for your Mama,
To feel it in her back,
As I rip this track,
And do it don't need no dro sack haha,

That was the old line the get line
The new line you never get in line
If you got a great lining
Then your fresh to death like my flow is (Woah)

You ain't even know,
I do this off the top,
As I go kid,
Too much practice every Tuesday,

At the 606 getting it.

Bridge

(What up Jory)
Do you know when its iLL,
(What up Shadow, Chi-Town)

Do you know when its iLL,
Do you know when its hot,
Do you know when its real,

Do you know when its hot,
Do you know when its real,
Do you know when its iLL,
Do you know when its iLL
Track Name: Light Year Student
V.1
We do it like Spike Lee and Those Michael Dudes
Jordan and Tyson, Bo Jackson Moves
Whip into shape so don't mistake
My lines and rhymes don't save Face

Ain't never fake so take a page
Out of my book live in the moment
Push homie push survival of the strongest
Down to the wire clutch on the opponents

Combustible components vision like we zoning
On that remote control it Windy City Rolling
The prize in sight can be denied
With passion this fly its a wrap no lie.

Chorus (Hook) Repeated Twice

Live Fast, Like a Light Year Student
Wake up everyday just to do it
And not just to do it
Ain't like you gotta prove it

Prove it prove it prove it
You known to just do it

V2.
Faster than the speed of light,
Feeling everything I write,
Writer block I use a brick,
Algebra 2 trig

Archetic a new road,
We can all cruise on,
Not those goofy tune songs,
Annoying on ringtones.

Stay making theme songs,
Bounce so you can lean on
Then get more gone,
Than a non free man,

Just seen the keys,
Put the squeeze on,
A piece of the pie,
No minimums

Down in a funk
Deserve addition
Tremendous conditions
With sweet renditions

Nobody wanna be
Just a wanna be
A has been Half ass
Chasing after first or running from last

Too concerned with the past
Are you prepared to be exact
No one ever prepares to be whack
Track Name: My Own Cool
V1.

Look stud we different,
No time for your ignorance,
Only stating common sense,
Your past tense,

Build the suspense Fuqua with a Pen,
You past tensed to scared to send Trends,
I'm so prepared to get it in,
No cookie cut outs could dare to contend

Pose or pretend,
You know where it ends,
Where the road you travel,
Why you roll to the one beaten thin,

Chorus (Hook)
I'm on my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
We Chilling,

I'm own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
Chi-Town iLLin'

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
We Chilling,

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
Chi-Town iLLin'

V2.
I rather turn heads
Drop jaws and lady's drawers
From spitting ill shit,
Things they never though,

No half as beginners,
Could never get the picture,
Could get the way they feel,
Too concerned with fingers pointed,

Couldn't give a fuck less,
If it didn't concern checks,
Couldn't give a drop of sweat,
No regret

Rather my success,
Getting shit off my chest,
My own cool,
Stand out like a purple jet yes.

Chorus (Hook)
I'm on my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
We Chillin.,

I'm own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
Chi-Town iLLin'

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
We Chillin,

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
Chi-Town iLLin'

V3.
Copy your swag out a TV ad
Then get mad
When your shit old and whack
How is that

All That posing for the past,
If you didn't know,
Posters all got dates attached,

All great trends come full circle,
Takes a special person
To come through and work it
Cliff hang swag over the edge

Going full speed ahead,
Without breaking a leg.
Ha!

Chorus (Hook)
I'm on my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
We Chilling.,

I'm own Cool,
On my own Cool,
On my own Cool,
Chi-Town iLLin'

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
We Chilling,

Setting my own rules,
As we all cruise,
Style like pro's do,
Chi-Town iLLin'
Track Name: I Want it All
V1.)
We all want it all, we all have dreams
We all got fight some low self esteem
No means drive guts to get the green
Which seems to control a hold on everything

While others hustle trying to make the cut
Making a way to keep their weight up
See an opportunity and don't wait up
Don't give to fucks about you fakers

Getting paid more ways than a pay stub
Dressed to impress ladies with at least a C Cup
Cop new whips chains shoes and gift
Brag about trips to hanging with a click

Ladies getting fake tits injection in their lips
Close that don't fit heels that shape shift
Feet to hammer toes ashy elbows
From jumping circles to chasing bank rolls.

Chorus (Hook)

I want it all, I want it all
I want it all such a simple dream

I want it all, I want it all
Living check to check
Living check to check
Ain't the life for me.

V2.)
Ain't the life for you, ain't the life for me
I have to ask where's the referee
Of this here life, I take a right
What's behind me, flashing lights

How could I provoke with passive aggression
Thinking adolescence giving up gun possession
Here for my protection I go the wrong direction
And we need correction I don't get it

The people that got it never really get it
Soon as they get it forget it on to new shit
A void they can't feel for lack of feelings
While the rest of us hustle to maintain steam

Fuel for our dreams rise like cream
Yeah we want it all what all does it mean
Lots of green, fulfill a vision we've seen
Not just to be seen fresh and clean on scene.

Chorus (Hook)

I want it all, I want it all
I want it all such a simple dream

I want it all, I want it all
Living check to check
Living check to check
Ain't the life for me.

V3.)

Couldn't be me an over spoken phrase,
How you the best and don't know how to play,
You participate often hesitate,
Lil homie stand back you might catch a wave.

Or a whiff as I zip like YKK,
You hoes scared like Y2K,
Seeing out my plans like the CIA
Or DEA I don't take off a day.

I prepare for the week and not to be weak,
To be known like Bo before 93,
Persevere like Jackie waiting on my relief,
To be stress free after I succeed.

Make you all believe like proactive,
How I'm proactive,
Plan with wit like witnessed it before time hit,
They heard the last tick, I ran home with it.

Chorus (Hook)

I want it all, I want it all
I want it all such a simple dream

I want it all, I want it all
Living check to check
Living check to check
Ain't the life for me.

(Bridge)

We all want it all,
We all have dreams,

We all want it all,
We all have dreams

We all want it all,
We all want it all,
We all have dreams.

Chorus (Hook)

I want it all, I want it all
I want it all such a simple dream

I want it all, I want it all
Living check to check
Living check to check
Ain't the life for me.
Track Name: Party Jungle
Must be a Party Jungle

Yeah, Yeah

V1.
Party, Party, Party we back in the basement,
18 years old no conversation,
Hips Straight moving bass vibrating,
Neon Lights smoking Haitian,

Purple Hazing bumping Dipset,
Juicy J Project Pat,
Them Hot Boys Outkast,
Ruff Riders and No Limit,

One more drink we in it Jack,
Choosing her minds at,
I'm on it like a Sales Rack,
Women stay shopping Black,

Press all up like the Tribune,
Her perfume they wanna consume,
A Nice rack and back you can concur,
She poked it out an I Conquered Her.

Chorus (Hook)
(Repeated Twice)

Animalistic everyone go Ballistic
Must be a Party Jungle
Hot and Frisky everyone so Sticky
Must be a Party Jungle

V2.
Lame dudes staring awkward,
Acting like he saw her first,
That's how your lame brain works,
Couldn't find a wrench to make a twerk.

Your breath smells like liverwurst,
Your shoes look like they lack work,
Didn't come for an altercation,
Started pacing pop lock and braking.

Just to bring her home like bacon,
Show her that I'm so amazing,
Don't play like Kevin Bacon,
Yeah she gets taken,

Down like his pride Jo,
Ain't Pro now he solo,
My swag got mad holes,
Like the Ozone oh no.

Chorus (Hook)
(Repeated Twice)

Animalistic everyone go Ballistic
Must be a Party Jungle
Hot and Frisky everyone so Sticky
Must be a Party Jungle

V.3
As we cruise in my Fire bird,
Focused not to hit a curb,
Get brain not a swerve,
Her top is proper for sure,

She is the finest,
I ran into a lioness,
My hairs our like a lion,
We hit her exit gliding,

At home so exciting,
Alone that reminds me,
Go ballistic on her hinny,
She dropped her panties climbing,

Now she is co-piloting
These walls she's riding,
Kitchen tables and sinks,
We connected oh we linked.

Chorus (Hook)
(Repeated Twice)

Animalistic everyone go Ballistic
Must be a Party Jungle
Hot and Frisky everyone so Sticky
Must be a Party Jungle
Track Name: Cents for Sense
Woah, Woah,

DOYO another classic Ahhh

Chilling on my bass kick,
On my bass kick,
We spend our whole lives
trying to make sense

Though sometimes
It really doesn't make sense
Sense, sense trying to make rent.

V1)
Exchange time for sense, just to make rent,
College expense, walls caving in,
The floors look thin, no visible end,
No one lends a hand to the blind man.

Who couldn't see a path,
Avoid being trapped,
On physical seduction,
Swagger dagger function.

Rather buy a lunch able
Instead of holding a lunch in
Monkey see Monkey do,
End of the discussion.

Consume and disposable
Their mind so controllable,
Doing what they can do,
Couldn't find the truth

The passion that resides inside,
That makes you, you,
instead of being a robot
Feeling so screwed

Where's waldo probably at Aldo's,
Copping new shoes to wear for tomorrow,
Impress a few friends lost all his marbles,
Plus a few screws feeling so confused.

(Chorus) Hook
Chilling on my bass kick,
On my bass kick,
We spend our whole lives
trying to make sense

Though sometimes
It really doesn't make sense
Sense, sense trying to make rent.
Track Name: U-Turn
Let me know

V1.
If I don't change
And you don't change,
How can we sustain
in this world of pain,

Feeling in different
on how to make a difference,
Ignorance is bliss
till you get dismissed,

Then you getting pissed,
Like you shouldn't be missed,
The whole world owes gratitude
bullshit

Where's your imprint,
You've failed to impress,
I think its time to move,
On to the next.

Chorus (Hook)

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Just let me Know,
Don't got time for a U-Turn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Time to make the money Turn,
I Earn.

V2.
We take turns, we can learn,
Easier said and rarely done,
Point the blame,
Empathy and Shame,

I feel pain,
You shouldn't feel the same,
We had relations,
No frustrations,

Just inebriation,
No half engagements,
Is patience a thing of the past,
I put you first you shouldn't put me last.

Chorus (Hook)

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Just let me Know,
Don't got time for a U-Turn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Time to make the money Turn,
I Earn.

V3.
Nice guys finish last,
Jerks finish first,
Where do you turn,
Things don't work,

Rings, merch,
Heels, purse,
Just a sneak peak,
Of a woman's worth,

Taking care of home,
No time to roam,
Sheets stay soaked,
She loves your cologne,

T-Shirt panties on,
Alone don't change,
Planned bike ride,
And unplanned rain.

Chorus (Hook)

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

If I don't turn
And You don't turn
Our main concern
Do we live and Learn

Learn to live,
Give then take,
Take don't give,
Learn to act fake,

Learn to hate,
Or just be real,
Tell me how you feel,
When the world is ill,

Let me know,
Don't have Time for a U-Turn,
Just Time to make,
The money turn I earn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Just let me Know,
Don't got time for a U-Turn,

Let me Know,
Let me Know,
Time to make the money Turn,
