Track Name: NC4OS (ft. Dr. Umar Ifatunde)
This generation aint playing round
They aint beggin, they aint asking and they won’t back down
They aint for that rhetoric about settling down
You give em hell they’ll bring the heat to put a cap in ya crown
Or a cap in ya gown and graduate you to God’s space
To the only King to ever reign over all days
so death to anyone trying to put man in God’s place
Cuz settling for slavery’s like spitting in God’s face
Some got the nerve to speak on cheek turning
Till the church is burned down and nobody can heed the sermon
So they’re Jesus with the whip, here to turn up tables
John 2 15’n on Satan at all angles
They’re up off their knees, putting up their hands
To hold up their arms, until you understand
You looking for forgiveness over here, don't bother
until the devil hit his knees and say “To our Father”
Track Name: The Wind (ft. Marcus Garvey)
English

My family is a strong wind
We fly above everything
and move in silence
but if we need rain
we will bring it, we will bring it

We need
new ideas that will change the world
because the old ideas haven’t worked
and the youth need solutions
when they ask me why I maroon…
I say…


Yoruba

Idile ti mi je kan to l’agbara afefe
A fo l’oke ohungbogbo

Sugbon ti o ba ti a nilo ojo
A yoo mu o, A yoo mu o!

A nilo

Nitorinaa atijo ero ti ko ṣiṣe
Ati awon odo nilo idahun
Igbati won beere idi ti mo maroon

Track Name: The Hated
English

Although we are hated saints
You will live long ,,, You will last long
God’s family will not reject you
But enemies of the truth will fight you
I take the shield of faith
and sword of the spirit with me
And my African ancestors
when battling troubles
The evil hate the righteous
This is why we are the hated

Yoruba:

Track Name: Ibon n'la (ft. Angela Davis)
English:

I want to live and
God will make it possible
With a gun for my protection
For our foes are a tough enemy
By God’s grace we will obtain guns for
when dangerous people come with guns
because we need to be ready for trouble
and protect our family with big guns

Yoruba:

Mo ni lati lemii ati
Olorun a jeki o bosi i
kpelu ibon ni fun alaabo mi, nitori
Ota wa ni elenini yiyi
L’agbara Olorun wan wa ri ibon
fun nigbati wa ipalara eniyan kpelu ibon
Nitori a nilo lati ṣetan fun wahala

Track Name: ACCS (Anhk Cross Crescent and Star)
Calling on all sisters, and, all Brothers,
Just like God above us, we’re Black in all colors
Light or dark, Short or tall, we are all one cuss
the fate that befalls one, affects, all of us
Christians Muslims traditionalists an atheist
the blood tie that binds us as one, came from the ancients
never let them divide and conquer cause that's a play from Satan
and aint no way that we can let him get away with it
From the ghetto to the meadow, the bricks to the burbs
Whatever we’ve taken will surely get served
from the Caribbean to Cali and the ends of the Earth
from where humanity was birthed to this American turf
We came in from the fields fighting for freedom,
Throwing noverseers straight to the wolves for we don't need them,
We’ll outlast the heathens and cast out the demons,
until they regret every attempt took to defeat us

The Ankh, The Cross, The Crescent and Star
The Ankh, The Cross, The Crescent and Star
The Ankh, The Cross, The Crescent and Star
United we stand, divided we fall
We’re MAROONS
Track Name: Isandlwana (Laid em Down)
Where the white rocks make no sound
Isandlwana laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down
Thirteen hundred left in the ground
Isandlwana, laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down!

The eyes of God witnessed the drama
Under the eclipse at Isandlwana
Where Zulus fought until the Devil fell
and had his soul sent back to hell
armed invaders, with their guns
And all got laid down one by one
Encircled and annihilated
By a nation underestimated at the
Ntshingwayo Khoza's command
Heaven’s Heroes with spears in hand
Left 1300 predators in all
to be judged under God's law now
On that hill, all that's left, at the
where invaders took their last breath
are piles of white rocks
that make no sound
At Isandlwana where they laid em down!

(Chorus)

First on the planet
Undeniable fact and they can't stand it
So punks with guns hunt spears and shields
David vs Goliath is what this reveals
Men verse beast the war’s at hand
until the beast lays down
in the presence of Man
In eighteen seventy nine it was God’s Plan
to leave the 24th regiment in the sand
under God’s reflection of the future and past
the sun rose for us first
and will set on us last
now you can take what you will from the cream of the Earth
but what the Devil destroys
will be redeemed in the birth
like three days later to a Christian - listen
You can’t kill what God has intended
To live here forever
so when it was all said and done here
You might of won some
but they just lost one here
Where the white rocks make no sound
Isandlwana laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down
Thirteen hundred left in the ground
Isandlwana, laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down!
Track Name: Ntando's Song (ft. Ntando Kubheka)
Bii mo ni fe Oluwa wa – As I love The Lord
Beeni mo ni fe Mama Africa – I too love Mother Africa
I do it like this wherever I go!
Mo n’ife idile Adulawo!
That’s right and exact
Africa is in the house and that's the matter and fact
No white lies from me when I handle the track
I’m here to celebrate life so I’m putting on Black

(Ntando Kubheka)

Africa, my continent
Africa, My home
From the high mountains of Kilimanjaro
To the low valleys
The Villages of the north, to the rivers of the south
The Black tribes that throw out indeed
I salute you Africa for making me who I am, an African
I am an African
I respect, I speak African languages
and I am proud of these languages
The color of my skin is rich
Dark like coffee
And I am beautiful like a lamb impala
I am an African
A fearless person with dignity and respect
I am Strong as a lion clever as a monkey
I am the river that flows
And all those who are thirsty can drink
They drink Knowledge and perseverance
I am an African
A leader but not a follower
There is no one like me
I am smart and good looking
I am an African
Track Name: Expression vs. Talent (PSA)
English:
What do you want to say?
What do you want to do?
You do not have to be perfect
to begin speaking from your heart! (X4)

Yoruba:

Kini o fe lati so?
Kini o fe lati ṣe?
O ko ni lati wa ni pipe
Lati bere n’so lati okan re (X4)
