I got a new flavor coffee, I got an old flavor rap Equip the A1 tones to make too cool kids relax b-boys hounding for the sounds 2015, my bank account was nowhere to be found, look at me now hardcore composer, 4 to the floor spinnin' glitterin' sunny shores, worry never no more promoters score off me, lab rats want the cheese, flip your expectations with ease oh please You say you're making big moves, adjust my aim by degrees I see you breaking the rules, before you know what they be I'll see you taken for rides, while I am given the keys Only success loves to hide, while failure wants to be seen But I won't give it the pleasure, I'm rising measure by measure I'm making money by minutes but keeping grip on my tether I'm whippin the competition collecting more hearts than castlevania hit me to catch the jet set mania If you feel it and you like the sound Say somethin say somethin People bring it a little closer now Say somethin say somethin Heart warm with a cold style Say somethin say somethin Transform then we roll out Say somethin say somethin When you see me in the streets say Say somethin say somethin If you like the fresh beats Pay somethin pay somethin New ideas each and every day They somethin they somethin Aaaay~ I know they gonna say something bout how I'm rappin again Most that grab my album don't know how I be grabbin the pen I come and stab em again, they can't get mad at the kid, just go look at what I did, put back the grind in your skid It's just the biz, money talks I only listen when I spend just to live, then I go and make it all back again With millennial friends, celebrate the last days raise hell and grab praise through a love drunk haze I feel I'm falling, but the music props me up in ways Haters calling, but the lovers lop it up, I just sway and sashay to the timing of the beat and perfect lines bass correcting my spine this is the only divine, I'll take my time

On the mic with the lyrical weapons let it bang just to keep y'all steppin Tokyo-to is the city I'm reppin art and music collab intersection Bring it on if you think you can hang but if not then let me ease your pain got a lotta years on my belt so my passion is felt and it's living through the things that I sang they want me to come and come off the mic stay silent shut up If they cut off my tongue then the records I'll cut up If they cut off my hands then I'll use my feet Kick the beat, rock the beat, flip the beat Live the beat, master and give the beat hit the street, spin wheels make connects and sleep Which is something I ain't had all week, I'm all weak cold bleak but you know it's that heat when I speak The streets are filled with blood we're running out of options the rich are in their houses we're gonna buy their coffins I wish I knew my future I dream about it often I sharpen weapons, softly From now there ain't no stoppin Rock the fucking beat

Poison Jam 03:11
My first draft is better than your last draft Rappin like a vampire wrapped in a black sash All blood everything blood red adidas color coordinated know the jam when you see us flying down the hills on the wheels of steel Jet Set blades on parade in the shade I'm the type of cat you can't spot in a mirror only talk to girls that dress just like vampira She got mascara, we got masks that scare ya crew Claws that tear ya crew, eyes that glare at you it's all about blood flow no love, GGs wet em street's hell on your knees you learn to say please better Come to Benten boys, come to Kogane-cho and bring your radio, we always ready to go You know you better get, all two of your boys then that's right I don't spit fire I spit poison Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I got a lumpy face, my hair is scraggly I'm all lonely, nobody wants me 'cept for the other monsters, we doing monster things run your block, cop bones like chicken wing Spot me watchin' Nosferatu on loop Amygdala-destroying enigma yeah that's poison Rokkaku catch more bodies than chainsaw massacre if we ever workin' together then that's the factor me and my baby on the graveyard steps always rock matching ice after a blood sacrifice Parlay with gang action to reclaim our rep should spray with the same passion that you pray for death Don't need chemical fix for my maniacal tricks 420 can spark in hell, give me 666 So if you wanna get with this, form up join hands get a knife share blood and give your life to the jam Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam I spit Poison, from the can in my hand Ay ay ay down to die for the jam You can't grind away on rails that are soaked with your own blood Poison Jam, casting a shadow over your neighborhood Rokkaku wants to gentrify, we just want to petrify Echo-locate like bats, split you like an ax with the rap spit a spell in a salt circle and shit, got you shaking in your boots GG troop Fright and terror, with the fresh Nike Airs you can't see in the mirror See you in your nightmares

Memories of Tokyo-To is a dedication to the music and style of the Jet Set Radio series of games. Produced chiefly but not entirely by composer Hideki Naganuma, the soundtrack's vibrant, hip-hop inspired attitude has entertained me for over half of my life and I am finally giving back.

I think that this album is the most true to myself I have been since I started making music, and I hope that you all enjoy listening to it as much as I have enjoyed making it.
