Track Name: Angela - Angela & Hugo - "Vibes"
Chorus
I'm living my own life
Doin my own thang
Singin to myself
When no one is listening
Just livin my life (just livin my own life)

Verse 1
Just me in my own right now
No one to take control right now
Can't feel no weight to hold me down
(Hold me down)
But sometimes it feels there's just so much
There's stuff at home, ain't the Brady bunch
But maybe if I block it out
With my headphones in n music loud
Track Name: Terrance, Nathan & Isaiah - "In Da City"
Intro
Living in the concrete jungle
can be quite a struggle
when growing up they tell us to be silent
That's how the cookie crumbles
life is hard with money and violence
and not to be accepted
now people being separated by abilities
well the poor are casualties

chorus
you can choose to be happy or sad
or you can also be mad
but you may never be glad
but that's just living in the city (x5)

verse 1
the way that we live
is no acceptable
sleeping on the ground
and living in many obstacles
drugs, money, alcohol
making people sick
but they can’t see it at all

verse 2
the traffic on the 101 is killing
every time i try to find a strategy
sometimes i feel like driving on the see
but most of the times i can’t breathe
their will never be peace and quiet will their be
i try to take public transportation
but how can i really even pay
when i get payed minimum wage

chorus
you can choose to be happy or sad
or you can also be mad
but you may never be glad
but that's just living in the city (x5)




Outro
In this city you can get your gold
silver or bronze you can complete your goals
go down the right path not a blood bath
in bad times sign up to the chimes
now good bye
and have a good time
Track Name: Thomas, DEZEL & Mic Murdock - "Deep Sea Diving"
Verse #1
The outcome the election is insignificant
The real leaders and their businesses
Will shell out dollars and indulgences
Call me unimpressed
But this system is as old as the nation is
Why'd we move west
Dolla incentive
Gold silver all the rest that i can't mention
If precious metal aint your game
You can move your gaze to the islands that we claimed
Every decision ever made
In public, they still hiding in the shade
Here's why this election is confusing to ya
Motives shadowy reasons ain't blue to ya

Verse #2
I'm gold as the gate,
to heaven where my brother is heading.
In the city where u get dropped for a dollar and fifty
,raise you hand in the air if u feel me.
I feel like a caged bird and the gate is rusted,
my hate ain't nothin.
Shout out to the FAM in Lakeview who knew I was something.
But the peer line is where the pure line stops.
And the 39 lies start.
Bart is the only way out but everywhere else they got they speech loud.
And I got cavities so the sound might break a tooth ow.
The world is on the prowl.
For a dumb city kid who doesn't know how except for now he has a pow

Verse #3
Lord have mercy on my body.
Illuminate probably goteem.
You can never stop me from speaking my mind
If I was I blind I could still rhyme.
Weather its hill or don't we all got conned.
Both are blond and have no bond with the race of race.
They want the space and think they're the ace.
But they just late to the game.
If the country catches flame, we're to blame?
It's just a shame how we will be critically acclaimed for how low we became
Dreams hit u like a shotgun.
But they still ask what's he on
Track Name: A to Z - "What’s Going On?"
Verse 1
It's hard to fight a fear that can always fight back/
Meyday meyday we're under attack/. She's dead he's dead they're dead boom/
There goes another hashtag. And there goes justice for anotha goon/
People getting famous after they're gone/
they forgetting What matter while catching Pokemon/
Black lives are being so
Disposable/
all lives matter for the incomprehensible/
Now People seeking vengeance on the 5-0/
fighting fire with fire gets no results/Mothers are crying, brothers are dying/and people are angry so anger is rising/
one less brother me one less father/
The balance between people getting farther and farther/
All this negativity is hard to contemplate /
Like MG said only love can conquer hate/


Verse 2:
I don't feel safe walking out my door/
Feeling so quiet feeling unsure/
Will I get shot, will I get tased/
please officer don't use the mase/
All lives matter that's a joke /
Let's be serious we've been provoked/
Scared for lives seems there's no bright side/
But till this day we hide/
Hide from the ones that protects us/
But lately they seem they neglect us/
Feels like a modern day war/
Haven't we been there before/
Back in 1954/
Civil rights movement has just been restored/
Mlk said I have a dream/
It was a dream without the peace/
More like a nightmare with the police
Track Name: Isaiah & Nathan - "Must Succeed"
My name is Nathan and i came to take control
Let you Know
That Im running, and I'm headed for the goal
For the dough
Need the bread
and the lettuce
and the cheese
Im saying please
knocking down the door, I never needed keys
we must succeed

Hook
Never Fail x6
we must succeed , we never fail
Track Name: A to Z - "I Call Your Name"
Verse 1:
Sometimes we be in our feelings just because,//
we wanna go back to those kids without the peach fuzz.//
Man I hate growing older I wanna refund.//
ironically as a kid I thought'd be fun. //
But when I look up at the sky I think of yall.//
N how the lord gives me strength just to bare it all.//
N u held out ya hands everytime I'd fall.//
N I know when I need it I just need to call...
You know I wouldn't ever ever try to let u down,//
AJ King feels she can't wear the crown. //
There's always expectations no salvation cause Im always downing myself even knowing when no ones even hating.//
N everytime I'm in my feelings i start thinkin deep too steep things are getting heavy i just need to breathe.//
I'm always getting caught up ha call me trap queen//
yeah someone call up fetty yeah oh god please me I call....


Bridge:
Hey Gela what you doing
in 510 Hbu
I wanna hang just like we used too
I can try but I can't promise
You always do this, what about us what about me
u know how I'm livin, it's not how it used to be
I know that you trying, but trying ain't enough
Bro ur like me bestfriend n my tryin ain't a bluff
I known you for 4 years and I'd like to reminisce
U know I got love for u cause I all I know is since....
Track Name: Thomas, Zevonte, & Mic Murdock - "Haven’t Done"
Verse 1:
Off the flow
Take shots aimed at your optical
I've got to go
I've got to know
What it's like
to make it in life
They're taking your life
So I have to survive
Man I know that I'll make it so heavily debated
Everybody hating
Every saying--
I'm delaying
Actually that's andele-ing
Never complacent boy I am the greatest
Of all of these rappers I'll ever be facing
I'm waiting and training
For all this hysteria
Black on black crime yo I'm from the bay area
Add white to the picture and it starts to turn to gray areas
The day that I carry ya
That's that 365
Boulders on my shoulders every day that I am alive
Swear I'll raise the bar higher forever
We'll never see eye to eye
Ever under the same sun
Run from my shadow as if I'm racing
I'm contemplating the things that I haven't done

Verse 2:
A place with no faith to different colors and races
left my mind evicted
without a trailer fear on their faces
everything is different for me
friends to no friends
its obsolete
mom on trying to fit in back there different from me
but I'm trying moving fast
different places different raps
different colors different laughs
ooh I trip now I'm sad
but I'm finding finding finding a way to make a change
different name different man its never the same
i just hope for myself
and everyone else
that we can stop with the no's and scream yes we can
Obama gave us power
and I'm giving the strength
love can change an enemy into a friend
learn that from Martin Luther

Verse 3:
Voice higher pitched than Dock Ellis is
Relative killing with my lack of skill and melody
I'm a half pint, half jew, half right sometimes
Oakland is my birthright
Third night gunfight
Unfazed by urban blight
It's quite alright
3 AM bay bridge, dazing
Flagrant disregard for the rules that are placed in
From designer crepes to raisins in the sun
Track Name: Isaiah & Nathan - "Education In SF"
Intro
Education is key
my mom is all up on me
so i can do good deeds
And i’ll be smart homie

Elementary is easy
middle school is hard
sixth and seventh and eighth
but high school’s way too far

sf is a super city
but can be super greedy
and the schools aren’t so breezy
and the teachers here make me dizzy

Chorus
people in sf think that money is good
but are schools do not have good lunch food
so do more than just sit and listen
but make a helping action

Verse 1
Some teachers just do it for the money
Some teachers just treat us like flees
but all teachers think their the boss
and us kids just want to be free

college cost a million dollars
just learn a few things and be a scholar
but you need it to survive and thrive
in the city called san francisco

Track Name: A to Z - "Redemption"
Verse 1:
I just want to show the world there could be love
Through all the hate we can rise above
Put down the guns and open your heart
Hurry up society's falling apart
Why do people tend to put ratchet with projects
When it can be a struggle that could lead up to violence
People being petty about the simplest things
They forget the big picture that the world may bring
Always worried about all the material things
Can't expect a sound when you pull the strings
Can't expect someone to love when you can't return
Can't expect a fire that will not burn
Track Name: DEZEL & Mic Murdock - "Tribute"
Verse 1:
Quesadilla meat
Summer heat
Exit out La Cumbre
Bumpin Dilla beats
Ya feelin me
I'm no foppish fellow with the frozen feet
Speak as eloquently as Hawking on the big TV
But in reality i'm gluten free
Got no dough or cheese
Call me vegan for the lack of gouda i'm creatin
Working for a job above my station
Lacerating expectations
Captivate entire nations
From Paris TX to Paris Fr
My style is approachable
Coachable not roastable
Track Name: Angela - "Triumphant Trump"
Intro
Hi my name is Donald Trump! And if ur listening to this song UR FIRED!

Verse
Hi my name Donald J trump,//
n I think that wall sounds really nice,//
n also Mexico can pay the price//
While I just sit here with my billions//
to buy a new toupe cause my hair ain't resilient.//
N when it comes to global warming I ain't feelin it.//
Don't u know u snows sometimes? //
That's y global warming can't be true//
n Obamas birth certificate ain't true too! //
Did I mention I'm a billionaire? Cause that's also nothing new! //
N if u want to be like me,//
then have ur ego as a form of currency. //
N have the same views not from the 6ix //
but well u know me & politics//
but well there one message I want to send//
n thts to make America great again.

Track Name: Terrance -"Blame"
Intro:
War,
ya war never changes
look thru the history books they torn pages,
all the pandemics that spread through the ages
America went thru all the stages.


Verse 2:
Why are people races
why do they judge them by their faces,
why are people of color being treated like they are other,
It’s so hard to change if one day we rearrange,
Rearrange,
if one day we rearrange.


Outro:
Why can’t we live in peace
why can’t the violence cease
we are all the same but there’s always someone to blame
Blame,
Blame,
always someone to blame.
