Track Name: Call It How I See It
Verse 1:

This story is about Nicole who was BOLD & beautiful
her boyfriend was Nick-his feelings for Nicole were mutual
he worked in a hole, a cubicle-the pay was sub-par
An indy hip-hop artist-rockin' clubs & bars
He had big dreams of goin' on TOUR
To rock the whole damn world-tryin' to make it for sure
He was determined-focused-wanted to leave his girl breathless
Wit a diamond ring and a new PEARL necklace
He was strugglin' to make rent and pay the cable
He submitted his demo to a major label
He had an incredible gift-he was fresh wit words
And he always felt he was ahead of the CURVE
The rappers on tv-he called 'em very wack
then one day-he got a call from Barry (BERRY) BLACK
To make a long story short-now he's rock star status
Wit a Shawn Carter ego-feels like he's the baddest
Ready to ball like he's playin' various sports
And this was his time - his turn to carry the TORCH
On the tour bus travelin'-now he's in predator form
Relationship rocky tryin' to weather the STORM

HOOK:

I CALL IT HOW I SEE IT AND THE WAY IT LOOKS
HE'S GETTIN' BUSY LIKE THE PHONE LINE IS OFF THE HOOK
FAT CHECKS HE BRINGS HOME-ROCKIN' THEM BLING STONES
AND EVERYBODY ON THE STREETS GOT HIS RINGTONE
GOT A COUPLE VIDEOS ALL OVER YOUTUBE
NICKNAME IS GREEN THUMB ROCKIN THE BLUETOOTH
THE BEST STUDIOS MAKE HIS VOCALS PRECISE
GOIN' HARD USIN' TWITTER ON HIS MOBILE DEVICE

Verse 2:

His STATURE as a rapper is attractin' all the groupies
Life for him now is like what he saw in the movies
About to go on an ADVENTURE to RENEW his career
Programmed to KRAVE the limelight and get used to the cheers
His AURA and BUZZ is big - he's the main attraction
Fortune and fame-he's graspin'-causin' a chain reaction
Gone are the days of passion as a rhyme sayer
Now he's controlled by the majors-it cuts deep like a RAZR
But LIFE'S GOOD when he's rockin' the stage in a big ARENA
Fans DASH to the front in enV-he no longer drives a Kia
Hum-V status-CHOCOLATE color-they GLANCE at the whip
And BEHOLD a superstar rapper who now raps for the chips
And the glitz & the glamour-a VOYAGER in planes & limos
Things nowadays are no longer plain & simple

HOOK:

I CALL IT HOW I SEE IT AND THE WAY IT LOOKS
HE'S GETTIN' BUSY LIKE THE PHONE LINE IS OFF THE HOOK
FAT CHECKS HE BRINGS HOME-ROCKIN' THEM BLING STONES
AND EVERYBODY ON THE STREETS GOT HIS RINGTONE
GOT A COUPLE VIDEOS ALL OVER YOUTUBE
NICKNAME IS GREEN THUMB ROCKIN THE BLUETOOTH
THE BEST STUDIOS MAKE HIS VOCALS PRECISE
GOIN' HARD USIN' TWITTER ON HIS MOBILE DEVICE

Verse 3:

A year later INSTINCT told him somethin' was goin' on back home
RUMOR was Nicole was seen wit this cat named Tone
Who was an underground legend in the indy rap scene
Son had bars-he would murder a track clean
Back at the hotel-Nick couldn't keep quiet
He wouldn't stop his RANT-about to INCITE a riot
Nick called up Nicole said he was gonna COMEBACK home and see her
And that she better tell punk ass Tone to leave her
Alone or mess around and get his ass capped
Cause wit his life - he's gamblin' like BLACKJACK
He caught the next flight home-SMOOTH landing-Nick arrived
Fists collide when jealousy conflicts with pride
then his cellphone started ringing-this was the KATALYST
His manager callled - said the new record's not a platinum disc
Nick got dropped from the label - he used to define dope
It was too bad - his career didn't end on a HIGHNOTE
This is just a MEMOIR of a fallen rapper
No ACE up his sleeve - it was his final chapter
For a very short time - he made an IMPRESSION
now Nick's life ain't the same - he's in a state of depression
Shocked in a TRANCE - the SAGA doesn't continue
Tryin' to RECLAIM his lady - Nick headed to the venue
He spotted Nicole at the bar and she was talkin' to Tone
He wanted to EXCLAIM his return - let his presence be known
It was HIGHLIGHT time - straight scrappin' like it was a cage match
Nick got socked in the grill and his chain snatched
Word on the streets is that they sayin' he fell ill
Now his phone's disconnected for not payin' the cell bill
Track Name: The Endless Pursuit featuring Ed Ward of Gotham Heights
COME ON EVERYBODY - LET'S ALL GET DOWN
WHAT WE HAVE IS A BRAND NEW SOUND
NOW EVERYBODY OUT THERE GET YO BREAD
DON'T FAKE IT - STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF INSTEAD
HAPPINESS - SUCCESS - EXCELLENCE - LOVE
SOME 9-5 IT - SOME ARE PEDDLIN' DRUGS
STAY FRESH IN THE BOOTH - REPRESENTIN' THE TRUTH
THIS IS LIFE - IT'S THE STRUGGLE - IT'S THE ENDLESS PURSUIT
