Low Power Mode Verse 1 I got an excess of black bile High irascibility Contemplating checking myself into facility Mental ability clearly affected Deep in the dumps, down and dejected Been in low power mode all year Think it's time to switch up to high gear Ima live 2019 no fear Ima be free this year Ima pick up my head and puff up my chest Step to the frontline, hustle on offense Crumple up anxieties, shoot em into trashbagz Hashtag no filter No more diplomatic i'm channeling illmatic The time has run out, ain't no room for the static Pump up the volume, let it go Past be the past let's get on with the show Chorus: I been in low low low low low low low power mode In low power mode Been in low power mode all year Think it’s time to switch it up to high gear [x2] Verse 2 So I slip into a silky world of lavender and lime Where the hide of a drum is beat all the time Carefully remember when I lost my damn mind Went somewhere else, left all my qualities behind Why can't I appreciate the food on my plate? That I have a job and my family is safe That it's only been assault, and never been rape That it's only been discrimination never crimes of hate? How can I ever wear an S on my chest When the weight of the world is keepin me pressed Wear a BP, got that white-hot vibranium Anger and justice all up in my cranium Obama of the gang of em, Triple consciousness drive me insanium Fat dab of wax off titanium Why is it so hard to see another point of view Consider hardships other folks been through? Chorus: I been in low low low low low low low power mode In low power mode Been in low power mode all year Think it’s time to switch it up to high gear [x2] Verse 3 I continue to struggle with this apathetic world As an indigo libra mulatto girl I know i ain't perfect, i mess up all the time It's disconcerting when no one else even tries It bothers me when you call me nice But I ain't nice I recognize all the strife in this life Ay if saying good morning helps you to put down that knife Ima say that shit twice trynna survive every night, know what i'm sayin? It's like, maybe my smile is a defense mechanism Maybe i'm to trynna bridge a schism I'll beat you to your prejudice thoughts and distract you Next thing you know you forgot that i'm Black too Chorus: I been in low low low low low low low power mode In low power mode Been in low power mode all year Think it’s time to switch it up to high gear [x2]

Fuhhhed Up 03:06
Fuhhhed Up Verse 1 Is it tragic that i'm magic but nobody can know Brains explode, no box to check for magical mulatto Slightest bit of melanin and congrats! you win! Your Black-In-America card, take her for a spin Honored to play for the BIA don't get it twisted You're trynna forget the white part even existed I don't dare, I recognize, light privilege is real, sheet I know im workin in the house and not out in the field and European features make me "accessible" Black out loud and proud it's turn down your decibel Lighten the exposure and bleach out the skin That's the nasty truth of shade shade we bathe in Beyoncé and Rihanna, Nikki, Cardi B Paper bag test still goin strong in the industry Best female emcee obviously Rapsody Can't we all just cut the crayola give her a Grammy? Verse 2 I got a mean mean case of the mulatto madness A smile painted on my face to cover up the sadness Race race race race all up in my latto face It's the Dark Knight, the moon is in crescent phase, nah I'm not phased but yeah, I am crazed My codes switched up there's an error loading page All the world's a stage i'm pretending myself away And I know I’m a sage, but shh! don't say it Ima Halle Berry slay it on the low That's how we're layin How we're playing this game How you respecting this name Ima put em to shame after i dealt with my own Ay let me get at this homegrown Phew, man, I am

Welcome 03:20
Welcome Yah Latto Breezy Chorus Welcome to America the home of the brave Where we pop pop Black folk everyday Where the boast and braggadocio get in the way Where it’s dog eat dog no scrap for the stray Welcome to America see us misbehave Profilin, redlinin just part of the game Thieves in the big house, no need to name names Nation burnin up covered in flames Verse 1 Kaepernick kneels he the black glove fist its Affixed to Olympic Gold-medal winner Tommie Smith Can’t expect those owners to be magnanimous Coded policy vote was unanimous Don’t even get me angered bout the star-spangled banner Our salt-in-the-wound U.S. national anthem [”I quote”] “No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave” [“End quote”] You kidding me? Country gettin off on slave graves? And why we watchin football anyway? It’s like take a knee, pay a fee, CTE, injury, It’s the straight up denial of Black humanity Yo keep pushin back boys, we most of the league Silent walkout low key via DM on IG Chorus Welcome to America the home of the brave Where we pop pop Black folk everyday Where the boast and braggadocio get in the way Where it’s dog eat dog no scrap for the stray Welcome to America see us misbehave Profilin, redlinin just part of the game Thieves in the big house, no need to name names Nation burnin up, covered in flame Verse 2 Yo you can have my spot I don’t want it anyway Other countries out there where they ain’t puttin kids in a cage Better wage hate bein broke as a joke everyday I wanna breathe but they choke my airway Ain’t no half-steppin out from the clouds I ain’t got no rainboots all I got is a jacket Maybe I’ll give you a laughin if you givin me that loud Otherwise I can’t help but philosophize a racket What’s America to you? To me it’s stars and bars, A four finger salute to lootin cash in a suit Cars and early july eatin pie filled with fruit It’s poppin all dem pills fed to you by the pharmaceut- ical I’m prayin wit my hands clasped I can save my mental The Doc put vibranium all up in my dental So now I’m gonna slay like the Dora Milaje Got my hair picked out, Angela Day Day Colorism prisms all up in the patriarchy Tinsel America, lies and malarchy Chorus Welcome to America the home of the brave Where we pop pop Black folk everyday Where the boast and braggadocio get in the way Where it’s dog eat dog no scrap for the stray Welcome to America see us misbehave Profilin, redlinin just part of the game Thieves in the big house, no need to name names Nation burnin up, covered in flame

Queens 03:48
Queens Verse 1 All I’m looking for is some equality But your head chained to that technology There’s some people who need an apology But you caught up in all that frivolity Accountability gone when something goes wrong So I write a song, cuz ya can’t give into fear Shakin my head, when I get ready for bed Let me sleep til I’m dead, cuz it’s all too much to deal Chorus: You don’t even care about us You don’t even care about us You don’t even care about us You don’t even care about us Verse 2 I find it funny when you don’t make eye contact You avoid me like the plague When I say hello like I’m a wildcat You quickly turn away I’m a cloak of invisibility You all 50 shades of hostility You like nylon no breathability Your fight is full a futility And you don’t, and you don’t And you don’t, and you don’t Chorus Verse 3 Thank goodness for all my queens Billie, Nina, and the Supremes Today in the morning, ninth hour We lost Aretha, Rest In Power R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Queen Aretha Rest in Peace R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Queen Aretha Rest in Peace R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Queen Aretha Rest in Peace R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Queen Aretha Rest in Peace Chorus
