Track Name: The Unknown intro
Ayo
I'm not a showman I am shaman
This ain't entertainment
I infiltrated the matrix
only way to change it
mechanical generation,
computation enslavement
evolution arrangement, devolution of language
Using
reason to reason, FL Studio cheatin'
home studio season I can't see where it's
is leading
Even I, victim to kick them engineers in the
rear
Why,
co's what the bucks of my budget they
disappear
Nah,
I ain't like them nutty dummies I mad involved
Y'all
don't study nobody pick up the catalog
Nigga I'm analog
Y'all some digital, unoriginal, criminal clones and it's pitiful
no identity so scare to be individuals
niggaz wearing mo hawks now, to look identical
kids say emos out now they dress identical
Damn now ya'll got my rhymes sounding so identical
Fools Ya'll are programmed, to listen to
programs by radio programs so get with the
program
Why are people so damn gullible and slow damn?
bro ham, most of you dudes are spiritually
nomads//
Never seen a signature, writing in them
notepads, in the future how we gone know that
you really wrote that?
How will we distinguish a non genius from
Chopin?
seems to me the machine just took the power
from yo hands
We created Johann Bach and even Gauguin
But somehow we end up in front of a session
loadin'
Either that or putting code in, mentally sowed
this where singularity starts
and where the soul ends
Soon we become that session and that's the
moment, some would call the omen but that's
when the unknown is
Unknown!!!!!
Track Name: Turn it up
Chorus:
Excuse me but I have heard enough, these dudes on the mic are not murderous
O'hene Savant now turn it up
Now turn it up, t turn it up 2x



Verse 1

What y'all expect I exceed it//
accept I excel just concede it//
Got excess of self I'm conceited
why else text myself (your a genius)?
Duh
I get it co's I'm nice wit it
Tell the fellas I am Hellen Keller out of sight wit it
I spit it like a King cobra, dudes lean over this
whole things over
Don't look at me like that som moma bitch
Ain't no rapper coming with this
Don't make me go in the yard and cut up a switch.
Pissin' me off what the hell you wanna get whipped?
I'm the Entrepreneurial
Hip hop oracle
G about to hit you with the four factorial
You heard me on the story so,don't even bother to
act like you don't know that I just invented a genre

Chorus:
Excuse me but I have heard enough, these dudes on the mic are not murderous
O'hene Savant now turn it up
Now turn it up, t turn it up 2x


Sub chorus:
O'hene in the game now there he is
with that E.R. flavor that's very sick
Bass bangin in your system very thick
Not too many can compare to this

Aye I mean a lotta of people rap nowadays
but this is divinity... I mean...ah, it would have to be a higher power.


Verse 2

What y'all can do I out do it
Y'all doubtin O'hene how foolish
ya'll mouths is making y'all look stupid
my style is not out and I'll prove it
NOW (just for those who doubt)
Listen to the sound,(Listen to the style you can't figure out)
of somebody who is not bound(not tied up)
Ya'll niggaz ain't ready for my tactics
quantum mechanic style and my antics
Mathematics
Master syntax smith verbally reek havoc on you bastards
LOL I am not joking, Facebook
friend ed the joker and poked em
He ain't like my status, me posting about how he dress
up in pimp clothing
But he does though...


Chorus:
Excuse me but I have heard enough, these dudes on the mic are not murderous
O'hene Savant now turn it up
Now turn it up, t turn it up 2x


Verse 3


I'm from the land of make believe, I like to make believe, that I can make the leaves do the opposite and shake the trees
I know I'm biased, but I'm so inspired my thoughts coincide with Joan Baez you should go and buy it

What an ignorant specimen
thinking you can mess with him
You would diss O'hene to your very own detriment
By my precise calculations and measurement
What is evident is the evidence of decadence

Now ever since I was in the game as a veteran
Set to win, co's I never lose I'm the best of them
Why not would you buy stock good investment
You'd be Warren Buffet by now had you excepted it
No this Heffa didn't re tweet, me sleep,
While I'm on twitter tryna meet Tweet she tweets
I only said that so I can say Tweet tweets,
I tw tw spit and these beats deceased
(Damn O'hene you really dope and I get it)
I said I'm winning this year and I meant it
You see me with Preme and know what Kane said
Meshell Ndegeocello so break bread,
This free for a week or maybe a little longer until
my fan base gets stronger I'm on ya
I warned ya this would not stop back when I burst on the disc I first dropped
Track Name: You don't know me
Chorus:
What you don't know me now?
look in my eyes and tell me that you don't know me
now
Girl I'm surprised you claiming that you won't hold me down
what you don't know me now?
Oh you don't know me now...


Verse 1
Aye
You don't remember me? I was the one you used to call when you couldn't sleep//
I used to come and break you off we had chemistry
Not only in the sheets baby you were into me
since it really doesn't make sense to me
You not mentioning me
On your Facebook page I figured that eventually
You would tweet about, me about, we about, us..
or was it just lust that's why you leave me out//
Ouch
It's hurt find that you were using me, mentally
confusing me,emotionally consuming me
You had a itch guess I was your opportunity, to
scratch it, that's it
Baby look what you do to me//
But what about the feeling the get when it's you and
My eroticism isn't what you used to see...
You can't deny the livin' fire we produce the heat
As I supply the cone, gon and provide the cream
cream.


Chorus:
What you don't know me now?
look in my eyes and tell me that you don't know me
now
Girl I'm surprised you claiming that you won't hold me down
what you don't know me now?
Oh you don't know me now...2x


Verse 2
Ha ha ha
Oh my God
Oh you don't know me now? is it because our zippers up what only now?

Co's you don't know me now?
Think that'll slow me down?
Oh you don't know girl? see time flies guess you forgot I made you're toes curl
I'm fine wine I get refined forever dope girl
but this is yo world,
I am just that old squirrel//
Went from loving me to ducking me tryna make it tough me
And don't have the luxury to watch you as you suck
your teeth
Acting like it wasn't me
who made you clutch the sheets
Co's your girlfriend's here, you tryna front on me
Please, you ain't gon throw me out,
I'll leave first instead of being a lonely clown
Your mouth say to leave baby I notice how,
your eyes say what they say when it be going down wow...


Chorus:
What you don't know me now?
look in my eyes and tell me that you don't know me
now
Girl I'm surprised you claiming that you won't hold me down
what you don't know me now?
Oh you don't know me now...


Verse 3

Oh you unfriended me, all of a sudden you running

Like I don't have all them sex text you sent to me
with the pictures and poses that you have givin' me
You got amnesia? you think that sucker you wit is gon make it easier
Unless he touch it and flip it know how to keep it up the way I keep it up
I beat beat it up what?
Is he a lunatic? the way I am with the tongue
and can he get you to bliss?
The way I manage to touch it the way I move my hips?
I can't fathom him loving you like I do with it
Oh you forgotten me?
The many times you that you traveled on that ride with
me the many sessions of stretching, you on top of me
How you denying me, I don't know for the life of me

look in my eyes and tell me that you don't know me
now
Girl I'm surprised you claiming that you won't hold me down
what you don't know me now?
Oh you don't know me now...
Track Name: 2pac is #DEAD
DEAD#
DEAD#

Verse 1
They say Tupacs back? I say Tupacs #DEAD
Maybe you should listen to the things that Tupac said
everybody loves thug life
Don't understand Tupac was like a thug Christ that's sent to man in the middle of the gang times
Picture westcoast people throwin' gang signs
now picture Death Row having a monopoly
Signing every hot emcee
and going platinum with everything they droppin see
A lot of y'all learn Pac as the time stretch
so you end up with a thug out of context
The media needed a mascot
and him being the biggest rap guy at that time
was a, perfect match so they decided to work with that
with cultural biases they observed this cat
They observed his tats, and his ghetto chats
and how the kids admired this person's stance
on America saying there's no equality
so they decided he ain't the one to be following
to them it's Halloween him having a following
But now he's dead so I suggest that you follow me


Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
I said Tupac is #DEAD I hate to admit it...but it's true
Tupac is #DEAD



Verse 2

Tupac is #DEAD no more keep your head up
nobody's gonna stand up so me I'm fed up
sick of compilations, of people taking their share of this great man man I am out of patience
If you wanna claim him then get back to the basics
loving your community more than you being famous
I know he's dead co's if he was here,
his heart would let him chill while these people swear
they rep his music but never do shit for people
struggling what an illusion, what people do to get bubblin'
And it's troublin' to see a lot of young, dumb it would appear Illuminati has won
that's why I gotta say what Tupac'll say and I produce so that'll make up for Johnny J
Some believe he in Cuba where he hides today
he was never the type to hide no way
Tupac is #DEAD

Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
I said Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD


Verse

Tupac is #DEAD he is not that hologram
Co's if he came back he'd do more than party jams
Sorry fam that was him at 25
co's if he was alive at 40 he'd be another guy
It's called maturity
But more importantly, I believe he'd convey something that's more important see
the game change
A lot of lame politics
not to mention politics the Pac I knew would acknowledge this
The Pac I grew up listening to does not exist
Nobody speaks to your heart like 2pacalypse
You gotta say it with meaning
and mean it
That brother was a genius but people never see this
All they see is him spitin' at the camera
listen to the battle him and Biggie and think that's enough
But it's not gotta read between the stanzas
Therein lie the panthers and answers


Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
I said Tupac is #DEAD
Tupac is #DEAD
Track Name: Savantism
Ha ha ha ha
See? I wrote this album in a week,
that's how easy it is
Savantism


I drift inside my subconscious, flooded by death imagery and thug mantras, drug operas
sung in the key of monsters bloody concerts
my light emanates though theses divine works
this is my church, I'm baptized in 5 hertz of wise words
all in God terms
endowed with rhythm the album give em sound precision plus poetic algorithm
Now listen,
I'm the Shakespeare of the tape era dark skinned with the pen fool I don't play fair
I can't hear your respect or hating
My brains trained to interpret them as the same thing
I process sound as not just sound seeing color much dimmer in that processed sound which means
I'm too big for 2 bit music, just like 2 licks ain't a
challenge for Ludwig
I'm gon get you
my way of thinking is orchestral
the Lord's vessel bring harmonies like quartets do
See? I'm more special than the lot of em this is the definition of Savant ism

Yeah
Listen to this
It's Savantism all day all night listen

Say I'm the sixth member
Spit timbre that'll dismember
I rap a lot the 24th of December

Wait hold up...ya'll aint hear that so Imma have to
say that part again

I said the sixth member
that spit timbre that'll dismember
I rap a lot the 24th of December
I'm buzz light year ya'll are just right here
should cut my right ear and get a buzz like yeah
That's that Vincent, I been sent to pen since, a infant
when I die I'mma leave a imprint
I'm sick of
looking at these rappin novice
Makes me wanna turn Jackson Pollock
Alchoholic
The judge doesn't have to call it,
The ones in the back acknowledge
My raps retarded
Relax retard it
To grasp this artist you need classes
College
Tracks is gorgeous
the canvas Goya's
Outlandish portraits
Bananas oranges
you cats is choruses,
very repetitive
I damage the forces
of every competitor
you never should mess with us
Track Name: Time'll tell
Yeah, yeah...

Verse 1

They say the end is now comin', people hide every man and every woman I say it's too late for runnin' co's the melody we hummin is the song of death//
all the prophets are gone or left, or dead, co's our greed made martyrs of these great martyrs
since we plant seeds, our seeds they harvest
and now they weep as they reap they karma the wicked realize that their deeds done caught up
But no redemption is sent them
No recompense or forgiveness again then
might I begin then preachin' maybe I'm just reachin in the hour of grieve n' and gnashin' of teeth when the bell tolls, not even hell knows, the ones who shall survive livin in this hell whole
How many so called chosen, will hell hold? Tomorrow has the answer time'll tell yo.

Chorus:
Unintelligible
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell yo//
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell y

Verse 2

Father forgive em for they know not, they put their faith in a industry of robots,
diabolical parasites that don't know God, and couldn't see divinity in my flow nah, I think they really do,
that's why they stall this, knowing my light will eliminate the darkness
the visions of this artist on par with, thee angelic harpist, my thoughts is enough to breath life into a carcass
into a market that's starvin' for substance,
lost in a drum trance they tell em "just dance"
selling em drugs man when will they learn
when the chickens come to roost ain't no switchin' your turn, that's judgment by the sovereign
wise as Solomon, my album in the future that's a spiritual accomplishment
though in the present it's just rap music,
time'll tell you all what it had too it


Chorus:
Unintelligible
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell yo//
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell y

Verse 3

This ain't the 5%, it's the 2%, the 2% movement of the humanist,
do you know what it means to be human if you do it means you exceed these beast and ruminants
We are being of nature so we struggle and we fumble then we stand on our feet we're not jungle men
okay some of them jungle men are jumbled in speakin' mumbo jumbo and that's when they bring the trouble in
Couple them, bring the devil and his devilment
They let you in, but I promise not to let you win
so let's begin our battle for the minds
My ammo is the babble that'll catch you every time
The castle and beyond want the kings head, may they be bathed in flames is what my dream said
the queen bled evidently but not from the sword
was it the word of the Lord
Time'll tell


Chorus:
Unintelligible
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell yo//
Time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell, time'll tell y


Unintelligible

Smart people like dumb shit
Swag rap outsells backpack you buy dumb shit

I'm tryna use that as leverage, in these meetings

or a rat's ass I mastered the elements
You talking bout my old albums, truth is
I never sold albums, even that Inner City Soul
album// But thank God for the patrons,
otherwise I probably have died in that basement
Waiting, for a papal payment my band camp

Early light(In the early light)
In the early light
Evening light wo oh

Verse 1

Praise Jah in the name of Rastafari
I and I came to change the game from the start
I thought, I
Told you my message is, the exodus
so you can have a mind from your Babylon
sentences
Prince and princesses
In spite of the media, brother
Bob you told that it's, gonna get easier
Seem to us things ain't change since what he
told us, so I came to resurrect the Buffalo
soldier//
You can't kill a natty dread with no melanoma
Aroma of the culture take over the glaucoma
I'm third world mentally
North Philly essentially
Eventually you'll learn from me, what rap is
meant to be
I have been sent down, like that dude from
Trench town to put the pen down, and show
the lost how music can sound//
To stop Satan with positive vibration,
Although I ain't Jamaican I'm making a move
take it to the


Early light(In the early light)
In the early light
Evening light wo oh


Verse 2

Last time I went home I hung out with Mrs.
Marley, had a beautiful smile that moment that
she saw me//
She was posed to lay a hook down for my recordings
in the mountains of Aburi, took ill, but that another
story
More importantly is the spirit she poured in me//
I was great when I met her,
but now I practice sorcery
So I write accordingly, the child of Selassie
co's I reach, from, hope road and back to Kumasi
Follow me,
This is the funeral of the usual, pseudo truth tellers
who tell, what keeps confusing you
They say it's beautiful, when it should be ugly
thieves who endorse them whores and sell thuggery
Suffer y,while you flex jewels and money see
ghetto youth are struggling, and hungry
That's when they come to me, ghetto children
come to me
I'll show the light as the light was shown unto me


Chorus:
Early light(In the early light)
In the early light
Evening light wo oh


Verse 3

By now you can see I'm genre less
I go from opera and sonatas
to Sinatra quick
Now I feel like Bob a bit,
I'm feelin' lucky-Dube
today, my moods sway but it's revolution till my
dooms day//
When I die, hope my tomb say, never was a coon say,
I was a warrior true descendant of Mtume
Peter Tosh would be proud of me, this is what I've
vowed to be, a soldier though the enemy surrounding me
The name's O'hene, a chief in my own right,
what I wield is stronger than a sword so I'm gon write
even as a child I have shown light,
I overcame, then became superior to my own plight
I never knew my pops, co's he was like Bob's
He left moms never got to look em in his eyes
I ain't complaining nah really ain't no need to fight
co's in the end he's part of what made me the light


Chorus:

Chorus:

Choice, choice, you don't have a choice
and if you don't have a choice trust you don't have a

Verse 1
What have you ever chosen?
How do you think your one of the chosen?
Don't believe a word that's been spoken
Your democracy is policy's broken
Didn't choose your language
Not even the shoes that you came with
Not even the food that's your favorite
It was in isle 2 when you came in
You don't know what your name is
That's the moniker you father came with
You ain't even got the courage to change it
You're identified by the same shit
Choices
But you think you got choices
even though you blend in you're just voiceless
You a slave to the grave who enjoys this
Co's you really think that you got choices


Chorus:

Choice choice you don't have a choice

verse 2

What have you ever chosen?
How do you think your one of the chosen?
You Don't believe a word that's been spoken
No democracy just policy's broken
Didn't even chose your God
He was chosen for you by mom
You're a victim of your location
Christian because you're in a christian nation
Muslim because you're in a Muslim nation
Hindu because you're in a Hindu nation
Yet you evangelize co's you think you have
Choices, you are mentally poisoned
Choices
But you think you have choices
even though you blend in your just voiceless
You a slave till the grave who enjoys it
Co's you really think you got choices


Chorus:

Choice choice you don't have a choice

How do you think your one of the chosen?
No Don't believe a word that's been spoken
Co's democracy is policies broken
Didn't get to chose your job
subject to good moods from boss
Guine pigs in a hamster wheel
To afraid to go take a chance for real
To afraid to choose success
You abstain and choose much less
Success is and that road's for warriors
Path of the great who know they have a voice
since choices
Everybody has choices, some choose to only
be voiceless, if you have a thought then
please voice it, your only choice is your
choices so

Track Name: Purpose feat Greg Stamper jr.
Verse 1
I went to Ghana there was a purpose even though was
far and mama was a bit nervous
Went to the best schools plus I had a tutor
I learned about global politics so while you were,
prolly playing hide and seek I was learning Socrates
Plus my uncle in my ear with that Bach and he's
watching these, flix on Mozart and Vangoh
I'm watching his hand go on the piano
thinking to myself what if Beethoven had flow
I'm answer that when I get in the lab yo
I met a guy name Eddie Blay, from high school
heard about him before but as a rival
we got along the moment of my arrival
You ain't know it then, but Blay you was my idol//
and till this day I love you, forever my dude,
When I blow up, you blow up trust I got you.

Chorus:
Behind every melody there is a purpose
Yes it's my purpose
the fuel the fire to my dreams
Every rhythm ever key it is my purpose
Yes it's my purpose
Pushing me through galaxies


Verse 2
Listen
I came to this country with a purpose
My initial thoughts is it would start with the churches
So I formed a group and got busy in the sanctuary, and
quickly found out most saints just ain't too worried
bout the ghetto and the crime that constantly echos
to busy meeting up for prayer rebuking the devil
I don't knock it, I love church for what it did,
taught me the message of Jesus and raised me as kid
Thanks to pastor Phil plus Rev. Stamper even writing this my eyes is getting damper
Man I remember did this show out in Florida for this
mega church where I spoke on the horror of intercity
youth, who daily visit the coroner//
Next morning the pastor sure enough brought it up//
Said I was basically wrong saying that sort of stuff
Guess it was time to go though no one thought is was


Chorus:
Behind every melody there is a purpose
Yes it's my purpose
the fuel the fire to my dreams
Every rhythm ever key it is my purpose
Yes it's my purpose
Pushing me through galaxies


Verse 3

Ever album I write has a purpose, even when don't
understand some of my verses, know that every verse is
part of my fiber, I'm much more than the usual Hip hop
writer, that's why what I write'll live longer than I
can
I'm already haunted by some of my jams
people asking bout 7 year old music
I wanna say I just dropped some new soul stupid
They don't hear I'm more confident when I'm producing?
A better engineer now that I studied acoustics?
You think I spent that time with James Foreman, just so
I could go back to the same format
Getting arrested by the sampling police
co's now ain't sampling my beats... sheesh
I used to get mad at people lovin reruns but if you understood a genius then you would be one

solo

Chorus:
Behind every melody there is a purpose
Yes it's my purpose
the fuel the fire to my dreams
Every rhythm ever key it is my purpose
Yes it's my purpose
Pushing me through galaxies

Verse 1

Aye
Americans afraid of the terrorism
Every time they turn a page people scaring em
Bomb threats times just ain't what it used to be
Terror alert on orange, keeps confusing me
Meanwhile the job crisis persist
Corporations insist on the jobs being ship
Overseas, so they oversee little kids and
give em a wage, and work em like slaves and get rich
Hey Mr. big wig can you spare a dollar?
Promise it won't take a brick from your ivory towers
True men of power don't fear sharing their power
Either that, or we coming to take what is ours
We are not the children of fear but of courage
We were once great, once again we will flourish
You can knock our towers down we won't perish
We only get stronger you might try to hurt us but

Verse 2

Now Africa is dealing with the famine
Hard to really think when the continent is famished
Then you got the corrupt leaders trying to manage,
rather to mis manage the heart of the planet
The other continents came and robbed you//
Took you sons and daughters, then they snobbed you//
Brain washed you, told you you were vulgar all the
while studieing text and your culture
I'm here to tell Miss Africa the truth co's
Malaria will not stop your future
HIV AIDS will not stop your future
You are the producer of Kwame Nkrumah
You are the producer of me the producer/emcee that
