Verse 1:

Catch me at your terminal. luggage full of merch/ raised in the Bay with the gutter punks and nerds/ the hippies, thugs, killers, and scholars are my friends/ rap around the world making dollars, euros, yen/ yeah the people’s champ, initiating trends/ the love is overwhelming, once the hate begins/ ride for the 510’s local residents/ the 2nd floor general known for my diligence/ ughh 95 Air Max match with my Frisco fitted/ my attitude: if it’s rap money let’s go get it/ but don’t you ever, compromise for the cheddar/ the game’s tedious but our lives getting better/ yup love to put my folks on even though we argue/ this became ah damn life, but remains an art too/ real life edition of Samurai Champloo/ fifty ninjas ready yup, you getting dismantled/


NWA, I’m an NWA/ a ninja with an attitude, get out my way/ a top tier lyricist outta the Bay/ “swinging swords like Shinobi”/ NWA, I’m a NWA/ a  ninja with an attitude, get out my way/ a top tier lyricist, outta the Bay/ “jet black ninja”/

Verse 2:

Asiatic immigrant conditioned to be militant/ living in the everyday struggle, which is imminent/ each breath be precious, but we on the reaper’s guest list/ ready for your death wish, hexes, and prejudices/ this just some ig’nance that E14 taught me/ and mix that with my DNA, a kamikaze/ you gotta monster modern day psychology don’t diagnose/ gave up on the psych meds, therapy, and bible quotes/ ninety four I started smoking, slightest hope I didn’t have/ now I travel around the world feeling like a diplomat/ Genghis Khan conqueror, always seek adventure/ a ninja with an attitude never speak the N-word/ and we could sell our souls, but never lose momentum/ soldier salute me when you hear my name mentioned/ gotta love the hate ’cause there’s no time for vengeance/ you could have the jewels, but you ain’t outshining Kensho/

Verse 3:

Bilingual marksman, my hood pass all access/ rappers acting backwards get smacked off they axis/ yall talk about the good days in the past tense/ while I vape flavors in a fine gyaru’s black benz/ she got an accent and wanna study overseas/ so I recommended San Francisco State and Berkeley/ looking for a man to help with her school fees/ I was told to never save ’em, she can’t fool me/

Longevity w/ DJ Shin

I recorded “Longevity” w/ DJ Shin this past August in Osaka, Japan. DJ Shin, DMC World Team Finalist, is a long time comrade of mine, and I was featured on his 2003 “World Famous” compilation album. Although I was in Osaka for less than a week, it was a memorable recording session since we haven’t collaborated in close to a decade.
