Track Name: Remember The Days
[Verse 1]
Loving the feeling and filled with adrenaline
Growing up, A.D.H.D. no Ritalin
Really was chilling and B-Ball dribbling
Spider-Man cartoons, imitate the villain and
Pop Dukes grinning while the ceiling fan spinning and
Wife-beater kicking it, was only the beginning man
Crunch toast cinnamon, breakfast and dinner man
Picking on the kid, but he was still a gentleman
Who you kidding type of life I was living
A sense of innocence introduced into the sinning
When he walked into the room that was Sour-Deez scented
More clouds than the sky, nah I'll never forget it
See cuzzo put me on when I was only eleven
First taste of independence, peace to my adolescence
Show me how to throw it in them little baggies like damn
It's that quick, now that's what I call an Instagram

Cuz I remember them days, yeah I remember the days
I remember them days, do you remember them days?
Cuz I remember them days

I remember them days, late nights, trying to get right
Just trying to get right (2x)

[Verse 2]
See when I hit puberty I became a G
And under more scrutiny, turned into a beast
Started hitting the streets, late nights while you was hitting the sheets
I made moves, didn't sleep and started living the dream
What I was destined to be, the Jake's heckling me
But never phased me in the first place, they're second to me
So pay attention you'll see, how I stepped on the scene
And made it look so easy, so effortlessly
Never claimed to be a killer nor pretended to be
Just surrounded by them shooters representing for me
Who ready for beef, really just protecting their seed
So if you really think you're live, you could end up deceased
Started making cream before I became a teen
All for the green, became addicted like nicotine
Then on to a bigger scheme, building the illest team
Just reminiscing about how it used to be


[Hook Repeat]
Track Name: Things To Say
While I'm sitting here trying to think of things to say
While I'm sitting here trying to think of things to say
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I wanna see today

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I wish that I could go back
To the day my grandfather sat me down on his lap
He said, boy you better work hard, no matter what you do
And have respect for your Moms, Pops, and your sister too
Pay attention in school or you're considered a fool
And if you making the plays, then you'll be running them too
Plus you ain't ready to lose so you'll be bending the rules
This is chess though, so that's what I expect you to do
Words of wisdom from a wise man
And I can still see his face every time I close my eyes fam
It's like a gift that was given by God, gave me the vision
So I shared with my bredren before he got trapped by the prison
Wear the crown and never let it touch the ground
That's what I told my Brody as soon as I left the town
Yeah I know you're sitting down just to finish up your stretch
But I'ma be right here until there ain't nothing left, nothing left like


What can I say man
What's left to say man
Long way to go

[Verse 2]
Look mama I made it, but I'm far from the greatest
This one is dedicated to everybody that hated
And all my loved ones that patiently waited
Who sang along to my song whenever I played it
Couldn't forget that even if I had Alzheimer's
If this was hell on earth, I'd let the lord find us
Cause I keep it one-hundred, I put that on the bible
Feel like the jet crashed and we were the only survivors
And when I say we, I'm talking about the fam
If you don't know by now, you wouldn't understand
I do this for a reason, a plan, never random
Look I ain't make the plays, I just ran them
So slowly but surely I'm gonna reach my goals
And in the end just remember, you reap what you sow
If you don't know by now, I can't fail
Cause I excel, yeah yeah, it ain't hard to tell

Track Name: Rewrite History
Blizzy I got you
Yeah yeah, uh
You know what it is
Mack, yeah yeah
Take you back, back to the future
Uh, Yeah

[Verse 1]
Okay I'm back up in this time machine
The suicidal doors on the Delorean, you know it's me
Marty Mack fly, set the destination to
December 28th, '89 that's the time (that's the time God)
Just watch the pedal hit the floor
And take flight, 88 on the dashboard
Jordan number four drops, Reaganomics crack rocks
Bulls vs. Cavs, better known as "The Shot"
This all leads up to the birth of a star
A legend in the making and you know who we are
I mean who I be, tape players in the car still
Before vehicles became equipped with CD's
Big Daddy Kane talking, Biz Markie
"It's A Big Daddy Thing" and "The Biz Never Sleeps"
I'm talking Beastie Boys, yeah I'm talking Heavy D.
Who did it "Big Tyme" up in "Paul's Boutique"
It was De La Soul and Queen Latifah
"3 Feet High And Rising" but "All Hail The Queen"
"The Youngest In Charge," that's Special E.D.
Had "Unfinished Business" EPMD
The Boogie Down Productions, B.D.P.
"The Blueprint of Hip Hop" who else could it be
(Yo who else could it be God)
And ladies loved cool James
Cause he walked like a panther with smooth game
Still nowadays, how did all of this shit change?
Emcees became endangered species and rappers are too lame
Back to the future, it ain't the same damn time
Who said you need two chains in order to shine?
Who said you need auto-tune if you wanna get signed?
If that's the truth, then they're outta their mind
(Yo son they're outta their mind)
I guess I'm going back to '96
So I can put a stop to whoever killed PAC and BIG

Seems like that's the only way to fix things
So it's up to me to try and fix things
If that's the only way to fix it
Then it's up to me to make a difference
I gotta rewrite history
Yeah I'm trying to rewrite history
Wish I could rewrite history
Until then, it's just an unsolved mystery

[Verse 2]
I take it back like a Beta Max or Eazy-E in a LA Raiders cap
Ain't nothing you could say to Mack
Before Busta tried to make it clap
Before Nas dropped Illmatic and Hov tried to Fade To Black
Before 50 taught you how to rob
And ain't nobody said whoa until they heard Black Rob
This one's for Cube, Dre, Snoop to The LOX
And everybody wanna rap until they're ass gets dropped
You win some, lose some, but you live to fight another day
And that's what Craig pops told him on Friday
Them lames gassing you up, taking the highway
While I'm taking the cuts, doing it my way
All black everything and some fly jays
Representing the struggle my brother, crime pays
You could save money, but ain't no time saved
That's why I could give two middle fingers what a hater say


It's like that that, like that yall
Track Name: Highs & Lows
You hit the highs, you hit the lows
One day you're rich, next day you're broke
Whether you Blood or Crip, Democrat or Republican
Religious or not, it's all the same shit
