about

The very first mixtape. The title "Looking For..." is taken from the novel "Looking For Alaska" where I got my rap moniker Takumi. This mixtape is a little bit of everything because as the title implies, I'm not entirely sure on what I'm looking for, but eventually I'll find it.

If you live in the PDX area, you should buy a mixtape! If you like that real CD feel and real CD cover status.

Best wishes and enjoy.

Track Name: Ascend
[Chorus] x2
Can we get much higher? (higher, higher)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

(Verse 1)
Crawling at the bottom: street rat, weak rap
Sewage, disgusting, un-trusting, meek crap
Only wearing rags, bags, and tattered gowns
Lags, sags, tears of a sad clown
Struggling and surviving to make a little scratch
With this kind of garbage no one would attach
A poor beggar and pauper, nothing is less proper
A prince to a servant, what can I offer?
We're all in the gutters, but I'm looking up
Drinking dirty tap water from a Styrofoam cup
Glancing at the stars, mirroring my ambition
Raise my position, paid the tuition
Knowledge at my fingertips and my disposal
So prepare yourself for my decent proposal
I'll never be the best, and I know that for certain
But it's a brand new day, open your curtains

[Chorus] x2
Can we get much higher? (higher, higher)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

(Verse 2)
Ascension, pretension, let me have your attention
I'm the pension mentioned with every detention
Imprisoned decisions provide provisions
Mine, just glisten, with vivid, intentions
Lifted to the utmost degree of revisions
Please visit, the timid, limit, of pistons
Fired up on each cylinder, I am blazing
Half-man, Half-supreme, it seems I'm amazing
Rags to rubies, rocking Gucci to Louie
I'm the wealth you seek, just try to pursue me
Paper chase, flavor race, if this is the final case
Buy face, purchase grace, embroidered in silk lace
A platinum Saturn, symbolize a monument
A golden Poland, cover the plates and continents
Hungrier, lovelier, more I'll start conquering
The following is brought by the sponsoring

[Chorus] x2
Can we get much higher? (higher, higher)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

(Verse 3)
Opulence has brought me this, statuettes
Fifty of the palace set, deliver it to me in jets
Mercy me, mercialago, toggle the goggle
Marvel at the rumble of the throttle
Soul not sold to the devil, on the contrary: Diablo
Pablo, dope flow, Rob Roy, bravo!
Ego bolstered and cultured even more grand
So please stand, give a hand to the diamond band
Riding easy, prosperity, nary a rarity
Nay to charity, I spend less than sparingly
A prosperous rocket ship represents myself
The heat I seek bubble the shuttles and melt
An Einstein on the grind and in the mind
But lost to the divine dimes of rhyme
Time is currency currently buy a moment
But if it all dries up, will it be as potent?
Track Name: Lance Uppercut
I went to the hospital, got checked out
Two specialists decided to have a personal bout
Diagnosis, prognosis, prescribed a different dosage
Both doctors gave me a different result, stamp and postage
Each argued with each other when my results returned
A strange pair of docs is all I had learned
A few more lessons I've recently discovered
Peer pressure will only have you land-lubber-ed
So I get bored of their games, I'm not in mood to play
Either way when I roll, I'm here to say
Collect go and so, if you already know
I'm designed like dragon boats, I'm ready to flow
Ready to row, steadily stack up columns every Autumn
Meaning I make em fall in the time allotted
But I still build them up, I don't sky scrape the rest
Instead, I dreamt in fact I was an architect
But also a republic that keeps rappers in check
Meaning my signature is big money, no need to inspect
Put my pen to the pad and the tracks get glad
Came to box, left in a bag, my raps maximum rad
Max power to the hour, take shots, Hennesey
XOXO, frequently glance at the pedigree
A Titan like Tennessee, they shout, Hercules!
Different trials and styles, verdict: I murk with ease
Perfectly, reportedly I stole this track: burglary
So that means the crime is in the nerd degree!
Nintendo crescendo, a classic rise
Cut by the boot in the booth call it Levis
Not big or small, but with two pockets in the back
Blasting off without the aid rocket packs
Drinking out of a juice pouch, never do I slouch
Spit it from the mouth and you reply with ouch
Take water, I'll make wine, take words, I'll make rhymes
Been shipped up like I'm coming outta Shanghai
I'm flyer than what's below your belt
I deck you jokers if you didn't get what's dealt
And then I'll smooth you out so it gets felt
So don't hide, because then I'll have to pelt
Ambidextrous flow, so you get left, right?
Reading from the left-right, I'll defend my right
Haters say "I'll have left" I say, "Is that right?"
You get left behind because I do more than write
And I've already left every passage of rite
Jab with the left and finish a straight right
Confusion occurring, but I already got you hooked
Line's in the water, go fish if you want a book
At this point, I'll be brief like Boxer's butts
This is what's up, what's sharp: Lance Uppercut
Track Name: Drum Roll
{Chorus} x2
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll

[Verse 1]
The air before a speech given is filled with static
That magic moment that's so potent: fantastic
Anticipation with complacent thoughts tonight
Inflation and durations ought to fly with flight
Because the main event has arrived, here I am
I have survived every disaster, fear won't stand
Battle scars like avatar and I rattle bars to prove it
Isolated like Cinnabar, I split a star less than prudent
Not just a student, I hold a black and a white belt
I pelt the knowledge that's been dealt so it's really felt
Triple threat, I write and act, but I think I talk to you best
Lest you forget, I am the MET of this set, never regret
Not talking baseball, but I am a new era like a fitted cap
So with my vivid raps I finish that so we can all hear it back
Raise the bass and repair the snare
Tonight we're making the whole world stop and stare

{Chorus} x2
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll

[Verse 2]
Fingers tapping like drum sticks against the hi hat
E-r-s, I'm e-r fresh, you like that?
Piano flow that flips the script like a dyslexic actor
I hold keys to the city but money isn't a factor
I'm the secret chord that pleased the lord
Stronger than any sword or army or savage horde
I orchestrate in a violin mind, not a violent grind
But it's off the chain like of the rottweiler kind
Deeper than a baritone, so let it be known
If I've got space to roam, I'm a Caesar almost grown
Like the change of the channel, switch to a soprano
Blackout to nothing and start an instant scandal
Musical vandal, playing from an iPod nano
iTune into zunes and resume on a new panel
We're major like scales, but no need to salute
Just pretend I'm at the awards in my suit and...

{Chorus} x2
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll
Can I get a drumroll please?
Drumroll
Track Name: Mr. East
I'm almost famous so I aim this
I'm not nameless, ignoramus, please play this
I've got checkers not gameless, and even the lameness
Claims that everyone loves me so call me Raymond
Not trying to be pretentious or too conscientious
But when I rep it they don't wanna mention this
And that right there is preposterous
Elemental rhymes, phosphorus droppin this
From the esophagus of this metropolis of consciousness
My rhymes in the prime, roll out, call it Optimus
My posture sick and monstrous: loch ness
I call my wrist Rick Roll, people keep viewing it
This is the truest influences that provides nuisances
I've already proven this that my ruler wit
Is measured beyond the mind of mortals: it's ludicrous
I do this not foolish or stupidness and I don't loosen it
I've got a super spit that makes even lugers trip
Seen a lotta stress, I confess and yes seeing to much fresh
When I walk to my closet it's like a fest of dress
That would impress the less and rest because
My prepped gear from the bottom to my chest is best, yes!
I stay fitted and I rip it in a minute kinda like Mr. West
But I'm Mister East, not a mystery, but this beast
On beats rises like yeast to a certain degree not the least
Slick like I'm greased, fresh to death like I'm deceased,
But I increase the peace like Priests and even flyer than Geese
I've got this in abundance, my subsistence, comeuppance
I rubbed this, so love it, baked and shipped out like muffins
My words electric in a metric ton son, not dyslexic
Or eccentric, it's synthetic and has power like kinetics
And I'm never done son! So you pathetics call this a conundrum
Track Name: Favorite Song
Let me be the one that you listen to every night
I'll be the reassuring constant telling you it's alright
I'll massage your brain and settle your mind
If you let it find I'll be more than kind
Unwind your thoughts, I'll help you get there
And I'll share the rare occasions and be fair
When you're riding the bus on your way home
I'll be there talking to you, wherever your roam
I'll help calm you down when stress arises
And provide compromises when there's a crisis
Not lifeless or worthless, let me play my purpose
I'll melt away the nervous, that's my service
Put your presence at ease, it's all at peace
My essence believe will let you fall asleep
We'll go back and forth like a game of pong
C'mon, let me be your favorite song

When you fall apart
I can make you strong
When it all goes wrong
I'll be your favorite song

When you lose your way
And the road is long
Let me come along
I'll be your favorite song

Romeo and Juliet without the tragedy
I'll compose poetry and be with you passionately
In actuality, we're not star-crossed, different galaxies
But despite our differences this is happening
Individually unique, but together astounding
Different techniques for the love that's amounting
I can't give you 20 karats or a trip to Cancun
But you enjoy my merits, I'll serenade you with tunes
Hand-made crafts, telling jokes to make you laugh
Collect go and pass, I'll save all my cash
To spend it on you, even though you don't need it
So receive and perceive it, and not even conceited
A classic tale of the boy meeting the girl
And his whole world upside, let it unfurl
Let me express all my emotion and devotion
Never we'll be divided, you're my quotient

When you fall apart
I can make you strong
When it all goes wrong
I'll be your favorite song

When you lose your way
And the road is long
Let me come along
I'll be your favorite song

I'll be the warm coat you slip on in cold breeze
That tingling hot that will have your frigid skin appeased
I'll be your mark inside your favorite book
Keep your place where you want me, never mistook
I'll be the covers and sheets on your bed and pillows
Holding your body and keep you sleepy like a willow
I'll be the light bulb inside that lamp you use the most
Always bright, always shining and always at my post
I'll be your trusty worn in sneaker shoes
Be right there at all times, step by step, with you
I'll be your diary that you write in late at night
Tell me your thoughts in full color, not just black and white
I'll be your lucky coin that you keep inside your pocket
So you can get an A on your test and your projects
I'll be your home-cooked meal on delivery wheels
Hot and fast, in a flash, this is how home feels
Track Name: RE:
Remix!
Rising out of the flame like a phoenix
You might think you've already heard or seen this
But put my pinky to my brain and I'm a genius
Deemed the self-esteem as steam since I dreamed it
Back pack on the track to respond reflectively
Redundantly I respect the previous props over and readily
Over and over again on it's respective axis
Rebel tactics got the world spinning all the way to Braxis
A toast to a ghost and return to the roots
A higher Templar absolute igniting lighter fluid
I lay down the tracks so I must have a diamond back
Response to that requires an attentive knack
Cause I Thor over more than previously expected
Ending wars with pours of knowledge redirected
Are you ready for this? Prepare for the swarm
It's always more real in the eye of the storm

RE: MC, Master of Ceremonies
RE: LV, Leveled up Victories
RE: RP, Risky Preliminary
RE: AD, Answered Definitely

Revenge of the nerds is never as absurd as you think
Return of the Jedi, Bet I, more sly than a wink
Relevant intelligent, I reign with decadence
Coupled with resident precedents, rule checked events
Reboot if you don't shoot for the stars and galaxies
Last time I remembered, rejects are in galleries
Van Gogh didn't listen to one thing they said
Immortalized reverently though he's far dead
Many things am I, but none of them defines
Put it all through a filter, purify and even refine
Than perhaps, a solution created unequivocal
But more confusing than literary versions of reciprocals
The battlefield of my mind grows wearier each day
But the requiems and ballads flow clearer each way
Renowned and hated, a clown and regraded
Congratulate me eventually, even if belated

RE: MC, Master of Ceremonies
RE: LV, Leveled up Victories
RE: RP, Risky Preliminary
RE: AD, Answered Definitely

Regenerate and reiterate the previous status quo
Zephyr weights lifted less than great on lattice glows
A product of my habitat, listen to the rat-a-tat
I made nothing out of something like a rabbit in a hat
So reply and recall the messages spoken
Poetically regrow pentameters battered and broken
Relish on the remarkable and priceless statements
A resplendent take from the basement to a spaceship
Feel the relaxed grip around the circumference of the mic
Heal the attacked Hip Hop in abundance alike
A righteous kung-fu, see if they come do what I do
Shoyuken like Ryu, I typhoon like isles in the sapphire blue
Never restrained, uncensored and revving the engine
What the game is missin, see the mission, reposition
Responsible and influential on instrumentals
All elemental when I rhyme from a released mental

Track Name: Figures 1-3
[Verse 1]
Before we explain this, let's lay down some foundation
Have a little patience and let's do some preparation
Inertia means things want to keep doing what they do
If something is sitting down, it'll keep and continue
Until something moves it out of the way with force
It'll only move when it's hit with unbalanced of course
With that being said, we move onto law number uno
The law of inertia, similar to the one said by Galileo
So, let's teach about the way things go and flow
Then the more you know, the more you'll be pro
A ball sitting on a table, very stable and able
It's sitting still and quiet, unmoving, that's it's label
Because the forces acting on it is balanced
It'll be as steady as a rock with no other challenge
But send another ball flying it's way
Unbalanced force hits it, demonstrating it today

[Verse 2]
Second law of motion might seem to cause commotion
But it's not magic and potions, it's easier than a quotient
Remember this, the holy grail equation
Force equals Mass times acceleration
If you're moving a 50 kg mass at your full potential
It'll move pretty fast, that's just instrumental
But add more mass to make one hundred kilograms
It'll go slower than molasses covered ham
Each of those things are all proportional
Remember F=MA and you'll end up venerable
Mathematically, you can solve for missing variables
It's all elementary, it's simply charitable!
This law is one of the most powerful and fundamental
A large component of physics, very elemental
The quantitative calculation of dynamics
One of the hugest cogs in the world's mechanics

[Verse 3]
See it all around you, yes it is true
All of these laws, 1 and 2, happening around you
Including number three, let me help you see
This is the last one to learn, go ahead and breathe
Third law of motion is a simple statement
But the things it influences will have you in amazement
For every action an equal reaction
For ever small fraction, an equal transaction
Look at the world, and you can spot an example
A sample: the flame and flicker of a candle
The fire reacts with the chemical on the wick
And with the air around it, yeah, it's pretty slick
How about the majestic blast of a rocket?
The gasoline from the engine, no don't knock it
Now you know all of these things, so you can profit
Of having these laws pat down, snug in your pocket
Track Name: Brother
[Intro]
I had to do it myself
I had to do it myself despite what they thought
I mean, if I didn't, who would?
You gonna love me man
Whats up man? (Whats up.)

(Verse 1)
As if we were villains by necessity
Maybe I gotta work on my broliloquy
Because even if we past every tragedy
There's always going to be a little comedy
Periodically I'm in my element: Bromine
So keen with not gangster lean, just gleam
Self-esteem went through the roof, here's the proof
I'll have you broken, aloof, and gone just like poof
Brocabuluary knowledge, street-smart polished
Like the fingernails on the punk rock logic
Brobust and vibrant, a fresher vibe
Inside I ride with pride that's less than snide
So ask me a question, and I'll answer passionately
If you're waiting for the brotation, wait for eternity
Because I'll be here permanently
Broting these words so fervently

[Chorus]
I'll be that bro on the go
Scrambling up in the know
Laying down tracks and flows, and oh, so whoa
I be posted on a whole other globe
And show, I'll be that bro on the go

[Interlude]

(Verse 2)
Broasted and flamed up by instant hate
Let me sign for the rebate for a better future state
Emails for the retail leave my detail
Analyzed by the guys saying I am female
But regardless I got the bromo that makes em so blown
Not rocking brolos but in the brozone
Solo, chill glow, like a brozen lightbulb
Meaning, my ideas are freezing as they take hold
Broperation is necessary, but force will be used
So conclude that in another mood I'll be crude
Brocially networking across bandwidth and wires
Through a universal language of heart and fire
Burning, learning, earning my stripes
Yearning, turning, observing this life
Let me rephrase if you don't understand
I'm the kid, the bro, standing up to the Bland

[Chorus]
I'll be that bro on the go
Scrambling up in the know
Laying down tracks and flows, and oh, so whoa
I be posted on a whole other globe
And show, I'll be that bro on the go
Track Name: Alexander the Great
Look, look: gander gander!
The boy came down to the land of landers
The land of Portland, the important imported dopeness is too much, don't snort it
Hit the spotlight and stage: dancers dancers
Tools of the trade: hammers hammers
Pronouns profound, grammar grammar
But chill with the quill: candor candor
Hit the track like heart attack: cancer cancer!
Got a question? I've got the answer
See everything like a band of Santas
So make some noise, clamor clamor
I'm up on a higher plane but this is standard
Your mud can't reach here, don't try to slander
Caught you red-handed: stammer stammer
Louder louder, grander grander!
Cuff them and tell it to them like Miranda
Got you endangered: pandas pandas
Poetic soliloquies, stanza stanzas
Teach you some lessons, manners manners
Life isn't always about the glitz and glamor
But depends on who you've got enamored
So you gotta switch it up, Adam Sandler
Orders to reporters: pan the cameras
Nuts with this cane, Planters, planters
Adjust the frame, tamper tamper
Treat it like newborns, pamper pamper
Talking about nothing: George Castanza
This song is like the Ku Klux vs the Panthers!
Slam dunk with the funk: slammer slammer
This is all so intense, campers campers
Flow like h2o, damper damper
Hope this song isn't getting any blander
But I've taken charge of this barge: Big Commander
Spit fire like Dylan or a salamander
Takumi or if you want Alexander
Never will I ever propaganda
Just leave you in a extravaganza
An incredible festival of wordplay bonanza
I've rapped circles around this like bandanas
And did you catch everything? Joe Montana
This is all impromptu, no need for planners
Just post some giant banners
All for this dude's witty banter.
Track Name: Beautiful
[Chorus]
Ain’t no question if I want it, I need it
I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
I’m on the edge, so why you playing? I’m saying
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Not for nothing I’ve foreseen it, I dream it
I can feel it slowly dripping away from me
No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

[Verse 1]

The mood is pensive, my mind is reflective
Soaking up the entire world and it's tension
The world ugly and the world is beautiful
Trying to catch it from the window view of a cubicle
Experience the fumes of the daily commute
Details astute and resolute in all my roots
Glance at the gasoline rainbows on the sidewalk
Enjoy the little side talk, c'mon let's rock
With no money in our wallets if you've already called it
Starving artists that go the hardest, still polished
Let the guitar wail through the wires and fire
Let it be the desire that all the mortals require
Smell the roses and let's live it very vivid
No room for livid, let's get em high and rip it
Hop aboard a spaceship, let's touch the sky
Tonight we forget that us humans can die

[Chorus]
Ain’t no question if I want it, I need it
I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
I’m on the edge, so why you playing? I’m saying
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Not for nothing I’ve foreseen it, I dream it
I can feel it slowly dripping away from me
No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

[Verse 2]
Never losing focus is a hopeless task
It's asking for the daily people to take of their masks
We trip and fall, break our hips and all
Hit a brick wall and face blackmail and balled
So we grow untrusting and we never forget
But sad because we don't remember past regrets
Snap judgments made in a pungent way
So if I must stay, it'll be a redundant day
Every now and though, we lose, no stopping it
But sometimes from there, we gain consciousness
Our eyes opened along with our arms and heart
The human race is still at the line trying to start
In the scheme of things, it sure seems backwards
But if you lack words, afterwards it'll seem absurd
When we lose, never lose the lesson
6 chambers can change everything, ask Smith & Wesson

[Chorus]
Ain’t no question if I want it, I need it
I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
I’m on the edge, so why you playing? I’m saying
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Not for nothing I’ve foreseen it, I dream it
I can feel it slowly dripping away from me
No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

[Verse 3]
Lock me up and throw away the key, well
I'll make straitjackets look dope on me, hell
Brand me a heathen and a scapegoat?
I'll walk on water, just give me time to escape the boat
Lecture my performance and turn your back on me?
Then you'll see that I never front, I think wonderfully
Call my mind a shallow pool of of nonsensical letters?
Then I'll go to a deeper level and show you I get better
Point out all my flaws and say they're my downfall?
I'll make them rise and I will astound all
Just analyze me until you finally succeed in my demise
But surprise, call me a Blazer for my uprise
Kick me out from your inner cliques and circles?
Then I'll just stay verbal and more universal
Speak all about me and how my tracks aren't musical
Calm down and I'll carry on beautiful

[Chorus]
Ain’t no question if I want it, I need it
I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
I’m on the edge, so why you playing? I’m saying
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

Not for nothing I’ve foreseen it, I dream it
I can feel it slowly dripping away from me
No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
I will never ever let you live this down, down, down
Track Name: Footsteps
{Chorus} x2
Follow my footsteps if you've got no where to go
Follow me through Chinatown all the way to Queens-borough
Follow me until I finally stop walking
You can chose your own path when I stop talking

[Verse 1]
Follow the leader, listen to the speaker
At ease for you tweakers, time to reaffirm the believers
March through the swamps marshes and jungles
If you're ready to rumble and tumble get back and huddle
Thoughts confused and muddled, so concentrate
Tai Chi masters and Zen scholars will reiterate
Enter the dragon and re-enter the monasteries
36 Chambers of danger, be one with the killa bees
It's been years since one has learned the ways
11 more lessons have been added since those days
We took up the torch, we added to the scrolls
We lit the passageways and published our souls
The fire never extinguished and words etched in stone
This is the only way we've been taught and known
Chinatown nouns provide a pathway for the profound
It resounds in the deep mounds of spirit, lost but now found

{Chorus} x2
Follow my footsteps if you've got no where to go
Follow me through Chinatown all the way to Queens-borough
Follow me until I finally stop walking
You can chose your own path when I stop talking

[Verse 2]
It's in chinese....

{Chorus} x2
Follow my footsteps if you've got no where to go
Follow me through Chinatown all the way to Queens-borough
Follow me until I finally stop walking
You can chose your own path when I stop talking

[verse 3]
A multitude of languages pelting your mind
A divine rhyme inside every single delivered rhyme
Ascending to the heavens, striking down the earth
This gift and curse has been handed down at birth
My brain contains insane flames from emperors slain
With range deranged and unphased by the lames
The words I speak know no bounds and limits
The life of the MC are in my words, I really live it
Dynasties primed me as the final general
Meaning every action I perform is less than venerable
Ancient elders have passed down their secrets
I don't speak it or keep it, I breathe it
Five elements of the universe in my palm
A phoenix calm mixed with a tiger balm
Lions den meeting and dragon send greetings
All reside inside me, none of it is fleeting

{Chorus} x2
Follow my footsteps if you've got no where to go
Follow me through Chinatown all the way to Queens-borough
Follow me until I finally stop walking
You can chose your own path when I stop talking
Track Name: Love/Hate
Love me or hate me, you better just choose something
Don't treat me like nothing or just be fronting
Cause I got a trusting touch on the microphone
Protect it like safety cones with walls of stone
I don't leave beats alone, I keep em company
What's done to me is actually overworked somebody
I've got a gentle pencil inscribed on instrumentals
That's less than accidental if it says confidential
I'm more accurate than stencils so I'm reliable
And undeniable. If something is done I'm liable
It's likely that nightly I stay at home with my wifey
But slightly I might righteously be clean like my Nikes
They might try me but they just end up apologetic
Quite pathetic but who am I to judge them? Forget it!
With a nice slow flow that is more combo than solo
I just go before my foes and show them my goals, yo!

Now you gotta hate me as I switch my styles
I make frowns as I smile and lay em down like tiles
I toss em down and make piles of my defeated
The haters get heated cause they believe me conceited
But believe it, I'm more sicker than a sycamore tree
I'm most definitely qualified as the infinity MC
Which means I can't be stopped and I can't be blocked
I can't be knocked like the Roc, I've got massive stock
I just keeping going, keep flowing, and I'm in the knowing
I cast away these castaways so continue rowing
I bruise the mics when I use the likes of my savagery
With mastery of deadly weaponry and vocabulary
You can understand me being called a beat killer
With scriptures and mind pictures that are much iller
I make you rappers look like a rapping Ben Stiller
So be still when I put the quill and lay down pillars

They love me for my word choice and golden voice
They hate me for my beyond poise like a Rolls Royce
Love me for the way I bring back rhymes like flashbacks
Hate me cause I do not lack packed attacks onto tracks
Adore the core of lore I speak because it's a bit unique
Despise my cries and uprise like Blazers nay-sayers
Appreciate my state of mind as I find I'm on the grind
Be disgusted as I'm more trusted to keep it adjusted
Love it cause I'm the Artisan and loves life ponderin'
Hate it cause I rock cardigans and is sharp like partisans
Admire my desire to be higher than a wire
Shun my puns cause on your head they weigh a ton
Be infatuated with created lines that I recline
Detest cause I stress you into a mess that is not the best
Just love me because I'm oh so lyrical
And hate me because you're hmmm, oh so cynical.

Track Name: Speak Like a Child
Speak like a child, I am spicy but not mild
It will take a while to understand how wild
The things are as he unleashes beasts onto bars
It goes very far to the distance of stars or the planet Char
I just swarm into the center of the storm
With a form so open it's the contrast of a dorm
I'm at a college level with my treble, it's incredible
I'm a rock, going to a boulder and I was a pebble
Growth is what I have achieved
Super like Mr. Reeves
I'ma fall like the leaves
Mr. Tree...
Why do you lose them all?
Why do you just let them fall?
Will it make you more than tall?
Do tell, please don't stall?
It's a secret, I won't leak it, I'll just keep it
But remeasure the temperature, read it, it just gets colder
And the leaves drop down to their knees like obedient soldiers
I'm the General Consensus and I present this
Reign that you have perceived is mist but I drench it
Like Victoria or the good city of Astoria
I get more than ya, and I get the Gloria
Do you get the story of the kid from Southeast 92nd?
Grew up around weapons and covered in tears from heaven
But with expert side-steppin avoid all the wreckin
And removed from the deckin so my name is Joker
I'ma show ya all the things they never told ya!
I'm gonna pull a bang shooter like a Ruger, but I knew ya...
Uneducated. Quick, get a tutor...
Before he ends up dumbfounded in a stupor
Whoa whoa whoa, peace just like the Buddha.

There's the natural pause for me to switch topics
I'ma drop this opposite of avalanche, so it's hotness
You got it? I'm a novice but I'm getting polished
So unknown with a power to own, what do you call this?
I go by many names, I just play many games
I will rise to the fame. Now I am Bruce Wayne
Scratch the last thought. I'm already a hero
Flyer than a Spearow, count me up Shaprio
Do you understand? Just call the number man
I just thunder slam until they call me wonder jam
So make a toast to the sir that is flyer than a bird
The Artisan with a partnership in spoken word
I concur that this nerd is very unheard
So like a symbiote, these lyrics you must quote
Take note of what the hell Alex Dang just has wrote:
Without any treason for a hundred seasons:
You should know, I'm the rhyme and she's the reason!
Track Name: Flawless feat. Sia
[Chorus]
Only legendary quotes
Listen to the play back
Whatever we make it's the return of the mack
Can you believe that?
You can receive that

It is flawless what I wrote
Try to chase this track
So far ahead you can't even trace that
So here goes nothing now
Here goes nothing.

[Verse 1]
Sitting on public transit, everything I've already planned it
Nothing coincidental, play my cards right like Gambit
Everything fresh, not rancid, snap a couple candids
I don't do jogging, I ran this, not entry level: I manage
Devour planets like Galactus without any practice
I swallow beats whole and still it comes out attractive
Study every night just to make sure it comes out right
First amendment I'll defend it with my life and plight
Flying against high winds so you call your boy the kite
And if you feel slight against me then your business is trite
Perfectionist flow, percussionists know
Keep it steady and ready I got a mentalist glow
I pulled out all the stops, pressed the button and go
Green light on, push through the door, feel the wind blow
Brush off the dirt and debris and you will see
None are as flawless and clean as me, the MC!
Say my name, T-A-K-U-Mi!

[Chorus]
Only legendary quotes
Listen to the play back
Whatever we make it's the return of the mack
Can you believe that?
You can receive that

It is flawless what I wrote
Try to chase this track
So far ahead you can't even trace that
So here goes nothing now
Here goes nothing.

[Verse 2]
Maximum potential whenever I rhyme on instrumentals
This is just perpetual, such a constant consistent mental
I go in to own, this is no rental, call this parental
And if you try to recite in my light you're gonna need dental
Obsessing and blessing every song I create
Caressing and dressing every wrong I make
Cause mistakes are just lessons further down the road
So remember each failed session and don't sweat a bad episode
My ambition wasn't overnight, but the transition polite
Since the mission was in sight, my new position is bright
Everyone can see I'm a rebel with a cause, and pause
Toying with a monster in the clutches of his jaws and claws
Is unadvised. What you provide is trying coincide
The best of both worlds: this hasn't been done or tried
So let's make history, we're starting right now
If it's not perfect the first time, we've got an entire lifetime to wow
Stand back... Ka-plow!

[Chorus]
Only legendary quotes
Listen to the play back
Whatever we make it's the return of the mack
Can you believe that?
You can receive that

It is flawless what I wrote
Try to chase this track
So far ahead you can't even trace that
So here goes nothing now
Here goes nothing.

[Verse 3]
Supremacy, delicacy, this is definitely
I've got the recipe on how to create the best of me
Flawless, lawless, continue to get polished
Drop this rawness and make an example of the novice
Impeccable, respectable, going past incredible
Boring comatose flow so I rename foes vegetables
Effective, corrected, this is a good investment
If I get tested I'll just come out far more rested
Absolute, attribute, they are just about to shoot
Deeper than palace roots, I just wear immaculate suits
Definitive, unlimited, I told you I would finish it
Take it for the benefits and I will remember this
I continue to pursue till I go out blemishless
Started ever since December Twenty-Fifth
1993 I'm the representative!

[Chorus]
Only legendary quotes
Listen to the play back
Whatever we make it's the return of the mack
Can you believe that?
You can receive that

It is flawless what I wrote
Try to chase this track
So far ahead you can't even trace that
So here goes nothing now
Here goes nothing.
Track Name: For Paper Equations
[Verse 1]
We're all in this world looking for something
Before we vanish and waste away to nothing
Some want fame, others wants only pleasure
People want a name and refused to be measured
We're all looking for something, that part is true
And we've all felt lost, that part is not new
So we envelope ourselves in different enigmas
Trying to craft character and charisma
We search for meaning and we start dreaming
We learn, start reading and soon begin beaming
Devising tactics that require much practice
Finding our own cracks and if we lack this
And then we fill the holes with whatever we need
Into our demons we feed and we lose our creed
Until one day it bleeps back on our radars
We get into our cars and we drive away far

[Chorus]
Paper towns, paper boys and paper girls
Why can't we see into the greater world?
With an abundance of reluctance we just go
Far, far away until the labyrinth grows

Paper hearts are too fragile but still agile
You've got a cancer curing grin and smile
Build towns from the ground on simple principle
We cannot be broken: we're just invincible

[Verse 2]
Lips whispering words too inaudible and silent
Nothing is longer plausible: only violent
The world on it's a axis, spinning like a dreidel
We get out of control and are no longer stable
Find your ambitions in a hearse plagued by a curse
Ripped like a paper purse and that's not the worse
You're heart is now inside torn into 19 parts
Where to start? You now see new things in art
Seeing words that aren't there like an anagram
Analyzing like a diagram, graphing like a pentagram
The numbers no longer blunders: gives you definition
New wonders to discover: strengthened intuition
You can find you're path out of the maze and haze
Give praise to who are close and follow your ways
Thanks to pranks, no division amongst ranks
Inside libraries for life there are only think-tanks

[Chorus]
Paper towns, paper boys and paper girls
Why can't we see into the greater world?
With an abundance of reluctance we just go
Far, far away until the labyrinth grows

Paper hearts are too fragile but still agile
You've got a cancer curing grin and smile
Build towns from the ground on simple principle
We cannot be broken: we're just invincible

[Verse 3]
Let them watch your moves: they're like eagles
Acting like regal royalties that are above the people
But they are equal because we all have abilities
Just withstand their aim for your head like guillotines
Drink deeply and eat hearty: this is your one chance
In a mental trance keep steady and assume a stance
A last stand, a last dance. Your last breath?
With little time left, what do you say before death?
Do you assume everything is simply inedible?
Or do you create relationships that are unforgettable?
Tie strings that connect us from one to another
Rise from the gutters and have on-lookers stutter
Have them in awe of what you have done with yourself
There's no equation in the world that will help
Just know that you can do anything you think is real
Because it tastes exactly like how hope feels

[Chorus]
Paper towns, paper boys and paper girls
Why can't we see into the greater world?
With an abundance of reluctance we just go
Far, far away until the labyrinth grows

Paper hearts are too fragile but still agile
You've got a cancer curing grin and smile
Build towns from the ground on simple principle
We cannot be broken: we're just invincible


[Radar (Jake Bisuut) Bonus Verse]
These days seeing things a little bit closer
Noticing the cracks within makes us bolder
Who knows what kind of people we were before
Whether we were the ones to adore or abhor
Every single one of us in our own shoes,
Central to our universe, your news is no news
Going on forever, stuck in our labyrinth
Own little world, no one notices absence
The world says you need a reason to live
But a reason to die, Lord, Heaven forbid
Except everything we do sends shivers down our spines
And down to the roots, where our lives intertwine
There I know I'm tangled up in kinks,
Pulling just one string brings us close to the brink.
Looking over, each time I get pulled back down
By those that matter most, declaring my soul to be found.
