about

Lyrics written and performed by me, Ashir the Professor. All tracks produced by The Light. This album was created to provide intelligent, relevant, and entertaining music that challenges the status quo. A combination of meaningful lyrics and catchy beats invites the listener to reevaluate the current state in which we are living.

As Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Track Name: C1 to L5
Sitting back burning joints as I rap at this turning point but no atlas or map denotes the path towards my hopes and dreams I mean you can’t do the math no you can’t calculate are we in control predetermined fate a roll of the dice or a chance at the plate either way I live my life like there’s no time to waste write original rhymes while others copy and past like Brother Ali each line is faith based not in the divine in the human race even though we consume at an irreplaceable pace we are capable of creating something great

I bring more on the track then you’ve ever seen before that’s a fact you can not you can not stack up

Not United States but united in the face of adversity those ignited by the hate are still cursing me cause their analysis is cursory compared to mine this is more than paralysis I’ll rip out their spines taking back the game one vertebrae at a time from C1 to L5 as the sea swells rise a lunatic controlling tides rolling spliffs like Bob Marley’s still alive I can hardly lift my eyes but I can still see the ill they be selling legally big pharma making bills off of people’s misery 150 per pill damn man that’s got to be pharmaceutical grand larceny they ain't dutiful to Hippocrates funding ads more than labs cause they focused on economy

I bring more on the track then you’ve ever seen before that’s a fact you can not you can not stack up

Hope you stay sick honestly they don’t give a shit about your health cause if you get better than it’s bad for their wealth but with these letters I start healing myself a medicinal art for my heart and mind I refuse to play my part or to stand in line I just listen to my muse and infuse each rhyme with a message they won’t preach but nonetheless is divine no sunday service but I can see God when the sun shines not just one time a week man we speak every day I can hear his voice in the wind and the waves never been to Confession wouldn’t know what to say but I don’t need a priest’s blessing to be saved not a slave to the book I took my own route and shook the foundation on which they built this house

I bring more on the track then you’ve ever seen before that’s a fact you can not you can not stack up
Track Name: New Perspective
You got a few cribs plus a winter retreat while many in the inner city living in the streets got no shoes on their feet while you got closets filled with sneaks so I speak my mind to defeat the greed rhyme over beats to give them what they need we all bleed the same color so if you feel pain than I feel for you brother this is more than a game I tame lyrics to discover a way to make them hear the tears of those who suffer truly not people bitching cause they can’t buffer a movie

A mastermind crafting lines like Israel vs Palestine I’m going at it til the end of time an addict for the rhymes an addict for these rhymes

Try switching shoes to see a new perspective in which nothing is protected get beaten and arrested cause your race is detested by those in a place of authority if your black watch your back in fact all minorities are in danger with a presidential nominee inciting anger fighting words in each speech what does this teach our children preaching with brown skin be the true villains got me feeling nauseous throwing up protest signs once cautious but I wrote this line without doubt no hesitation on my mind cause finally I can see my destination that shines an MC on the mic controlling time stacking hours into moments ahead of the pack leaving seconds for my opponents

A mastermind crafting lines like Israel vs Palestine I’m going at it til the end of time an addict for the rhymes an addict for these rhymes

I’m the first on the track and the last to leave I believe with each verse I can start to relieve the pain and agony dragging me down nearly drowned in depression I’m not messing around hip hop is a blessing thank God I found my sound unchained and unbound but I remain underground beneath the feet of the people in this town hearing footsteps as I slept and dreamed rhythm from their shoes become a drum machine if you know what I mean man yeah understand that I’m like a kodiak I bear my soul on the track and tear apart the script cause bitch I don’t act I spit it from the heart so it’s a cardiac rap lap by lap I surpass the grasp of doubt as I smash out the ceiling of this glass house

A mastermind crafting lines like Israel vs Palestine I’m going at it til the end of time an addict for the rhymes an addict for these rhymes

Can not buy this feeling doesn’t matter the amount man I shatter bank accounts cause I’d rather live in tatters than live without an ounce of self respect so you better check yourself before you get wrecked demolition is the mission if you choose to step I’ll use lyrics to sear this message in your chest “defeated by the best Ashir Abouleish” man fuck designer clothes I’ll brand my name in your flesh but I digress from this message that I’m trying to relate life is a blessing spreading love instead of hate let’s create a brighter state hold up your lighters illuminate outer space and never feel out of place fuck mass appeal if you must mask your face peel back the disguise realize that your fate is designed in your mind you just need a little faith believe in yourself never underestimate

Track Name: Ashir the Professor feat. Ryan Emry - Will be
Commonly underrated underestimated now you wonder how I I elevated gravitated to the top I meditated and separated from the crop I was born gifted but I just opened the box now my spirits lifted by the lyrics I unlocked hear it and remember how I fought through December frost bitten by the cost of living dismembered but I’ve been given embers now my fires rise regenerating limbs right before your eyes penetrating hymns like I came from the sky not an angel but I stay high why to untangle lies recognize the truth find the right angle in the booth yes the rest be obtuse or acute while I reduce the descent of the game

So what you want what you want will be yours

I reduce the descent of the game like a parachute cause the plane it caught flame when Kanye and Lil’ Wayne got their fame spitting about getting brain but their mindless tamed by the chains yes their spineless only in it for the fame so they won’t find bliss but I rhyme for happiness peace of mind yes I release stress with each line decompress and unwind relax and recline redesign the track snap apart then reattached rails yes I rhyme from the heart so my art prevails embark upon this quest yes I set sail on a ship blessed trip but I don’t fail I progress I stand tall for those oppressed those supposed to stay compressed and confined yes I flow to stretch lines expand and redefine boundary lines sound the bell climb out of hell and smell the roses take a breath and focus on what’s closest to your heart fuck those who say you’re supposed to play your part and stay in the dark man I write to spread light so fuck the charts man I write to spread light so fuck the charts

So what you want what you want will be yours

Uplifted gears shifted feeling gifted cause the fear disappeared as I drifted pass my peers light a spliff and crack a beer you’re now chilling with Ashir spilling miracles in your ear the lyrical engineer designing rhymes light years ahead of his time so I shine bright when I write to achieve heights unreach yes my potential on the instrumental has no peak cause I speak from the soul to breach the mold every time I hold the mic like this it turns to gold like the name was Midas no you cannot fight this brightness cause none one shares my likeness hotter than the sun as I light this game aflame with these puns I maintain fire in my brain stay on a higher plane empire’s reign can’t douse these flames can’t contain these thoughts yes my aim remains on the outside of the box of convention didn’t I mention that I walk between dimensions in search of answers so I talk in question don’t the church and the mosque teach the same lessons? Don’t the church and the mosque teach the same lessons?

That life is a blessing and to get into heaven than you better be repenting for your sins start letting God into your heart man understand with my art I disband notions preconceived ocean filled with liest I can still see the truth a true MC who still hasn’t seen the booth all about the green like the name was Snoop so high rhyming from the roof with perfect timing I produce hits stars aligning when I spit the astrologist redefining all of this as the lyrics fall from my lips spirits lift in opposition yes I’m on a mission not a Muslim not a Jew not a Christian saw through the scripture and made my own decision now I drew the picture I envisioned when I first listen to my soul and let intuition grab ahold of my mind take control help me find the design one of a kind once blind but now I see the divine resides inside of me once blind but now I see the divine resides inside of me

So what you want what you want will be yours

Man understand life is a gift live in the present and don’t resent shit spliff lit constantly honestly I lift spirits with each lyric that I spit no arithmetic can calculate how I elevate mental state my potential on the bass can’t be traced written or erased spitting from a place unknown yes I’ve flown out the rat race past the throne set the pace set the tone face this quest alone so I don’t rest strive like the Tribe on the microphone never petrified but I stay stoned electrified to the bone live wire currently I rise higher no currency can buy the fire I possess yes the fire blessed by the best who but this game to the test to name a few Guru Mos Def Tupac Pete Rock and KRS man understand that I’m hip hop in the flesh at the top nothing less Ashir Abouleish in your ear to make the stress disappear eject regrets and forget all fears even if it takes years I will stay here til you persevere past the tears that blind

So what you want what you want will be yours
Track Name: ISIS vs KKK
I take my mind and transfuse it into each line using music to reach the sublime like a Buddhist yes I meditate when I rhyme to see through this fabricated state where most wander clueless don’t stop to ponder the reason why they do this or that season after season staying on the safe path honestly I must admit I did the same in the past but for these last couple years I’ve been straying from the pack switching lanes changing gears never bitching cause it’s clear so many got it worse lives immersed in fear so next time you feel cursed let this verse in your ear realize that your life ain’t that bad compared to boys and girls without a mom or a dad and those across the world getting bombed cause Uncle Sam’s getting mad got no love for Islam cause he don’t understand that the Taliban and ISIS represent Muslims like the Klan represents those made in Christ’s likeness a perceptual crisis ignorance isn’t bliss it’s just one of its disguises so you can’t see the bias acting xenophobic when you think you’re acting pious

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth

Truth I’ll expose it even if it starts a riot step into this booth I cannot remain quiet just came in the game but you know I slay giants name aint David I ain't talking about Goliath it’s Ashir Abouleish but you can call me your highness the best nothing less yes I only spit the finest rhymes hit like a .356 I blow your mind with each line cause no one flows like this and I’m the first to admit I’m the first to admit I got my own unique style I combine the Tigris Amazon and the Nile an unexplained phenomenon yes this song belongs in the X-files

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth


Too complex for the radio to play but I smile anyway cause I won’t dumb it down I stand my ground like Lupe man I do it for hip hop like Luda, Nas, and Jay let the ink drop and put these thoughts on display to cooperate and not compete to stop the hate and spread peace like a Deadhead stay grateful for the bed in which you sleep and the food you have to eat I complained I had no shoes til I met a man who had no feet I complained I had no shoes til I met a man who had no feet

Who are you to come and tell me what to do when you don’t even know yourself you don’t even know yourself too focused on the wealth
Track Name: Everything
I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Writing fighting demons that be screaming in my mind but now I’m beaming yes I shine when I rhyme double meaning in each line so I breach the grape vine to escape the confines of the nine to five yes I strive to redefine what it means to be alive cause it seems many die many times before their deaths left on the surface never leapt into the depths never found purpose never found

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Never found self respect scared of the underground cause their buried to their neck in the debt they created true consumers who are never satiated this is not a rumor or topic to be debated check your optics to see this materialistic society if you blink you might miss it disguised as it be capitalism dressed as democracy widens the division between wealth and poverty honestly it constantly grows so I flow to slow the divide bring about unity provide hope to those denied to those denied opportunity

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Ruin the traps set by past generations yes I clear a path to pass the limitations lay a map on this track and start navigation through the wilderness spliff lit be my torch when I spit it’s magnetic so I rhyme to find the North not geodetic staying true going forth who knew I’d survive without a fort in sight for many fortnights penniless but I write with a sense of direction introspection on the mic as I hike towards the summit see my reflection in the peak when I speak yes the sun hits seek perfection and never dumb it down after many corrections this is what I found my own unique sound yes I stay high but keep my feet on the ground I elevate past the hate many deceived by the wealth thinking cash makes you great but you can’t by what it takes to elevate so say goodbye to the fakes and emanate what is real what is really on your mind and how do you really feel don’t hide behind the blinds draw the curtains and reveal the Tyler Durden you conceal start a fight in the club relieve some burdens and start to heal reveal the Tyler Durden you conceal start a fight in the club

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need
Track Name: Watson & Crick
Almost drowned in a pool of doubt before I found the tools to work it out I went bezerk at school so I took another route to discover what it is that I am all about give them rain throughout droughts to relieve the pain of those tortured and chained by the enemy that resides on the inside of their brains can’t run or hide you need to fight for a change yes I write to fight the man that wants to hang my hopes cut the throats of my plans the man composed of the worst parts of who I am but with each verse and my heart I command myself to withstand the attack and strike back with my mic and pen I’m ready for combat keep my aim steady through the rain and bomb blasts gain sight of what's important cause sometimes it’s gone fast

I’m the first to admit I don’t spit that gangster shit ain’t a Blood or a Crip I’m more like Watson and Crick twisting hip hop and science into a double helix

In a flash right before my eyes but I can’t react lies disguised as facts that’s why I rhyme to unmask the truth pose questions unasked so when I session in the booth I unwrap Snack Packs to uncover the proof so you know I got the scoop corporations got politicians jumping through hoops they ain't working for this nation wearing thousand dollar suits taking luxurious vacations eating exotic fruit while most of their constituents be eating cans of soup for every meal it doesn’t compute what’s the deal how can they represent the struggle when they don’t know how it feels it’s that political hustle where very little is real and the main aim of the game is to gain mass appeal so much stress on my chest that I almost suffocate so much weight that these ribs almost break but I won’t give in I won’t accept this fate I create my own path outside the rat race and move past mistakes that cast doubt upon my face now the sun’s out and I’m about to embrace the light in case you’re wondering I’m not talking about Christ I’m uncovering my purpose in life bring it to the surface use it to ignite the mic making music to influence the left and the right

I’m the first to admit I don’t spit that gangster shit ain’t a Blood or a Crip I’m more like Watson and Crick twisting hip hop and science into a double helix

Whether you’re deaf or you lack sight my tactics are synaptic so I leave your mind bright write to excite neurons rhymes deeper than Lake Huron sleepers I awake with this switch I have turned on the main stream not in the game to gain green no cash or fame could outlast the flame that’s internal the fire grows every time I put a line in this journal aspire to acquire eternal peace the empire's grip I release from the throats of those nearly deceased can’t you see clearly we created a beast yearly budget for education spent in just a week on this nation’s military but if you listen I will teach like Harry dropping bombs over beats a true man who plans to not admit defeat no I won’t quit bitch I won’t retreat I’ll continue to spit until this mission is complete take what I’ve envisioned and make it concrete

I’m the first to admit I don’t spit that gangster shit ain’t a Blood or a Crip I’m more like Watson and Crick twisting hip hop and science into a double helix
Track Name: Ashir the Professor feat. The Light and Ryan Emry - Luck
Time to paint a perfect picture that just may look picture perfect
Don’t get impressed yet cause it may be just the surface make a fewbets wondering if that ish was worth it but the way we rock them rhymes left those other fools hurting
Reach for the right tense leaving trails of suspense an In my DEFENSE I USED THE past participle
So sorry to make it difficult so let me make it simple suppose we get distracted by matters that seem trivial
Still glued to that tv looking for something material completely devoid of with all matters of the spiritual
Keep on rollin with the flows the raps remain lyrical mixing up these tracks while munching on a bowl of cereal to the closed minded peeps theres no apologies for not hearing ya furthermore I’d just like ta say that the rest of the world aint feeling ya
We can make our own luck if its something ya dont like dont worry cause we can adjust
The masses is still hopin an wishin still thinkin this life is worth living luck vs superstitious traditions visions written on the walls of ancient egyptians
No longer can we afford ta be tripping let loose of the self sympathy start solving lifes simple mysteries
Long gone are the days when i found myself bitchin an moaning about shit i aint got being broke it aint hot but the music didnt stop ya came ta the right spot
certain aims that we rethought and now the rhythm that we got sounds like luck in the makin rippin rhymes sensational puttin down pillas thas foundational perspective is relational think four leaf clovas gonna bring that range rova if ya got a move left ta make then ya sure that it aint over
good days gotta make em great
I’ll roll thru drama like a bull doza
defend tha truth like a king cobra
said we gotta defend the truth like a king cobra.

Sometimes you're on a roll sometimes your luck runs out

The Professor with The Light so it’s always bright when I lecture on the mic yes I excite photons giving mass to what I write like the Higgs Boson teaching class throughout the night reaching those who feel so gone but wait hold on it is never too late to prove the haters wrong create your own fate yeah that’s why I elevate mental states getting high making brains levitate to alleviate this pain spill my heart on the track so in fact it’s blood stained search of redemption like Andy Dufresne I’ve got to tame this aggression before I go insane but my curse and my blessing be one in the same from the first verse I spit I could feel it in my veins yes the lines that I rhyme blow your mind like cocaine trying to find nirvana name ain’t Kurt Cobain game filled with piranhas biting for the fame while I’m writing to enlighten darken times with the flame that I tamed skills sharpened as I trained and became the main creator haters say I’m vain yes I guess I’m getting under flesh last name Abouleish here to claim your king in this game of chess there’s no luck involved I evolved in check but eventually I dissolved the threat yes I escaped now it’s my turn to state checkmate but eventually I dissolved the threat yes I escaped now it’s my turn to state checkmate

Sometimes you're on a roll sometimes your luck runs out

There have been times in life when we’ve all faced a checkmate its never been too hard to relate so let me spit a bit of strategy to dissipate some fallacies is it an abnormality to refuse to accept the brutality put on my spectacles sift thru the sullied mantra of a sorry mainstream message desperate to get a glimpse of a new reality saw the professor giving lectures while the light was shining bright both stringing their words together cleverly crafting their makeshift prophecies saw the fate of human beings forced to compete in the 9-5 rat race or gain a competence in botany itll take a couple choice steps to avoid the monotony and evade the new world lobotomy which could be but aint gotta be what do you think about the role of luck in life? Ill play that scarface like Tony Montana I aint going out without a fight. If I want it I get it and on a positive mission without a moment of regret aint that a breath of fresh air why would I point these things out if I didn’t care but always got a sec to examine one of lifes great lessons a pistol to my head and a chance to be left for dead… wow… guess that’s what we get for second guessin our own intuition neglected a rule of the game designed to keep a playa consistent if it’s a lyrical competition ill win the middle weight division with the strength and determination of a Mike Bisping comparing winners to losers abstainers to boozers its your attitude that chooses just exactly what to do with your life. Ill second Emerson in what he said that strong men don’t believe in luck they believe in cause and effect in regard to luck it was Jefferson that said.. ‘the harder I work the more that I have of it.’ And I’ll add to that… what you put in is what you get out of it…

Sometimes you're on a roll sometimes your luck runs out

A discussion about luck from instructions inscribed upon the tomb of King Tut that a curse shall befall all whom disrupt to those who struck Powerball to Mega Bucks touched by Lady Luck or is it just probability is it God or the odds fulfilling these prophecies honestly it’s neither it’s Ashir with Locke and Ryan Emery on the feature no lying here we be the three headed creature like Cerberus protecting and serving this Hip Hop community this track is what happens when preparation meets opportunity don’t get what I’m rapping get online and search three keywords the first of which you’ve probably never hear I assume you don’t know it it is Seneca the roman poet second is quote and the third is luck read a bit of what he wrote then rewind and turn me up listen one more time I don’t believe in superstition that shit is all in your mind I shatter mirrors when I rhyme walking under ladder others choose to climb and my muse is that black cat crossing my path from time to time I don’t mean to confuse but I won’t simplify these lines I’m too complex gotta take each verse within its context no contest when I’m on the mic pen becomes a sword yes I fight when I write I defend those without sight not legally blind but blinded by the plight I defend those without sight not legally blind but blinded by the plight

Sometimes you're on a roll sometimes your luck runs out
Track Name: MC
Even microscopically you can see that I’m an MC my molecular chemistry has got more capacity on the melody composing mentally potentially the man chosen the man cryogenically frozen for multiple centuries now memories coming back memories centrally focused on the dawn of new facts that attack the design thoughts ahead of their time were seen as a crime confined but eventually the truth redefines the design and is free yes I rhyme on the melody to remind of the flexibility of realities boundaries constantly fluctuating so I’m self educating on the microphone concentrating on the crown on the throne contaminating the underground with their trickle down economics gives the H20 to the roots hydroponics cause the water flows up the chutes to the leaves believe with capillary action everybody receives what they need satisfaction indeed so let’s proceed with the chorus no distractions I can see the forest through the trees all 360 degrees yes I'm an MC I move continuously no the mainstream cannot contain me metaphorically categorically the greatest MC of all time made out of clay like Ali as I rhyme on this beat mercury climbs I bring the heat like coals beneath feet I warm soles turned cold incomplete can’t find the missing piece cause their puzzled but what they’re missing is peace yes they struggle to release those thoughts they wish they could forget mind ties in knots cannot process stress got you compressed cannot expand

Where are we going in such a rush got to slow down smell the roses and take a puff

Like that man benched no game like that fire drenched by the rain no flame pain got your brain tamed like a lion with that chain on your neck no pride no self respect happiness denied by the beast that resides on the inside of your chest which feasts on the stress that your mind manifests can’t repress the development of this hellish element no it’s no embellishment I don’t exaggerate I understand first hand what self hate can create such a weight on the shoulders that it makes boulders seem like peebles such a hell that it makes where the devil dwell seem like a Motel 6 heart’s locked in a cell where no exits exists so I bend bars apart on the remix with my art like the phoenix out the ash to your ear don’t even ask you know it be Ashir here to make the cage disappear turn the page it’s a new year a new chapter I sit I watch and I try with all my will not gonna quit til the hands stand still on the clock til the sand in the hourglass spills on the rocks and no more hours pass no more tick tock gaining back some time that I lost yes the fast lanes got its cost so I’m slowing down just gonna moss growing from the underground through the frost with a sound profound coming out my voice box drumming in the background contagious like chicken pox never outrageous like the news on Fox but I stay sly why

Where are we going in such a rush got to slow down smell the roses and take a puff

Cause time it flies by yeah I get high to try and fly with time so I rhyme not for the lime light I rhyme to achieve flight can’t breathe right cause I I reach heights where the 02 barely goes to rarely exposed to oxygen air so thin that I breathe in but my breath is gone with the wind thanks to Ms. Mitchell take it to the bank cause it be official got more backing than the bills they be stacking lacking value doesn’t matter how you add it up you can never have enough to buy peace of mind you can try but you'll find that you come up short so abort the mission listen start your ignition exhaust all suspicion and in its position put trust and watch it combust so efficiently my alternative energy yeah it’s all about synergy symbiotically living with each other fuck the difference in the color of the feather got to flock together if we’re going to weather this storm got to transform the norm yeah its form have been compromised by the lies that we tell ourselves and everyone else like equating wealth to happiness man we missed the point so pissed that I light another joint easing the frustration of appeasing a nation so corrupt it’s become volcanic about to erupt but they don’t panic cause they think their unsinkable like the Titanic but this transatlantic ride that their on can provide a haven only for only for so long

Where are we going in such a rush got to slow down smell the roses and take a puff

Icebergs be staving cause like a Rube Goldberg demonstration simple has become complex yes people invest so much time on the surface cause on the surface purpose is easily found people get nervous thinking about the underground you can easily drown in its depths so deep so I keep coming up to take a breath
Track Name: Verbal Medication
I’ve been chasing thoughts racing through my mind but with hip hop I stop and I find a better route using letters to unfetter any sense of doubt out this cage when the pen hits the page once plagued by hesitation now I’m on stage no reservations see my heart in each track cardiac examination the only thing I lack is patience like a doctor on vacation but I’m replacing MDs with verbal medication the MC laying down the foundation an original sound no copies or imitation I’m just sitting sipping coffee smoking good elevation never spitting softly I spit with exclamation there’s no question I leave a mark on your psyche

Sit back relax and let it go and just listen as I flow on a mission to grow hip hop and I’m not gonna stop til I reach the top on a mission to grow hip hop on a mission to grow hip hop and I’m not gonna stop no I’m not gonna stop til I reach the top

I leave you guessing cause there ain’t no one like me. Yes I might be slightly insane can’t understand how I command the game a new brand of thought never simply or plain I’m just tossing rocks watching ripples expand but maintain yeah we gotta do the same pursue new avenues but remember the name of the streets from whence you came fences that you climbed over barbed wires and chains visibly scarred but deep within your brain is where the pain resides and exists so I gain control and evict that bitch roll another spliff and take a few hits commit 100% or don’t commit shit yeah that’s the slogan

Sit back relax and let it go and just listen as I flow on a mission to grow hip hop and I’m not gonna stop til I reach the top on a mission to grow hip hop on a mission to grow hip hop and I’m not gonna stop no I’m not gonna stop til I reach the top

I spit when I’m home alone like Macaulay Culkin roam through my dome like Caesar in the Balkans got a grip on the game like a mother fucking Vulcan just a star on this trek to shine bright and dissect when I write I don’t neglect the details do it by hand that’s why I rarely email barely any females can derail this train I’m always on the track sleet snow or rain beat after beat flowing through my veins never slowing down like I’m on cocaine growing from the underground, that’s why I’m grass stained broke down now I’m in the fast lane fell in love with the game long before the cash came

Sit back relax and let it go and just listen as I flow on a mission to grow hip hop and I’m not gonna stop til I reach the top
Track Name: Ashir the Professor feat. The Light and Ryan Emry - Money
Is it a rhyme is it a rap, is it about time to sit back and relax? Don’t have to imagine where the 420s at cause between here and there we been there and done that. Is it about the money or the power? The energy we get from makin the milk sour or charging the green bar bringing the level of light up. It could be used to do good or breed evil. One of the very few lessons to learn more important in the world we live in than the art of making the deal and it’s commercial appeal. This capitalist society got the rats in the maze running on their heels, its gone beyond the point of a rat race, the current state of affairs in no better than a total disgrace. These radical ideas are like ink on paper. It’s the love of the money ya get that turns around and begins to own you. Humanity has always found a way to subjugate the masses that don’t know what to do. It’s the love of the money that presents itself in a way that puts you in a place where you gotta choose…. Said it puts you in a place where you gotta choose… So what exactly are you willing to do for it?

Love of the money creeps up upon me history warned not to let it control me
Love of the money creeps up upon you think really hard before choosing your values
Love of the money creeps up upon me history warned not to let it unfold me
Love of the money creeps up upon you think really hard before loosing your values
Love of the money of the money of the money...
Love of the money of the money of the money...


Souls sold to the devil for gold bars and other precious metals to become a star many sunk to that level but I stay afloat with the bass and the treble quote the best of what I wrote and never settle for less yes I rhyme to spread hope instead of rhyming to impress but I guess my lines do both they have a dual effect like a fresh pressed vinyl by Mos Def I leapt the competition in a single step on a mission to make you listen and never forget despite the size of your check you can’t buy my respect don’t bother with an offer I will not accept I’d even refuse the Godfather if we ever met do you get what I’m saying I’m not selling out doesn’t matter what you’re paying not playing around I took my own route out the underground understand no cash in hand but I have a plan to learn from my past become a better man burn the mask ignite the disguise realize who I am recognize my self worth so you can keep you wealth I got more value in one verse understand no cash in hand but I have a plan to learn from my past become a better man burn the mask ignite the disguise realize who I am recognize my self worth so you can keep you wealth I got more value in one verse.

Love of the money creeps up upon me history warned not to let it control me
Love of the money creeps up upon you think really hard before choosing your values
Love of the money creeps up upon me history warned not to let it unfold me
Love of the money creeps up upon you think really hard before loosing your values
Love of the money of the money of the money...
Love of the money of the money of the money...
Track Name: No One in This World is Perfect
Yes I rhyme to climb out the fire in my mind to get higher out the empire designed to blind yes I rhyme with desire to shine when I write lines I don’t pretend the light intertwines with the end of my pen wait don’t blink this ink illuminates what I think opens gates to the brink love and hate push to shove I navigate smoking kush above the plans of fate understand I concentrate on the base to alleviate and erase this pain stand without the cane now I’m able to remain stable through the rains change the game turn the tables cut the ties burn the cables to the lies and learn to recognize the disguise that hides the truth emperor exposed with no clothes see the proof temperature rose with the eyes of the youth

Yes it could hurt to come out the woodwork but it’s worth it cause no one in this world perfect yes it’s worth it cause no one in this world is perfect

Temperature rose with the eyes of the youth once closed from the sky but in this booth I prove that the roof which binds and restricts only exists in your mind so redesign the blueprint find bliss fuck wealth focus on self betterment turn impediments into sediment leave no remnants of your past yes I believe in your last breath no regrets should be left in your chest so til I rest eternally I will conquest internally and learn to be the best yes the best that I can no contest with my fellow man

Yes it could hurt to to come out the woodwork but it’s worth it cause no one in this world perfect yes it’s worth it cause no one in this world is perfect

But I stand up like a cello take a couple puffs now I’m feeling mellow hello name is Ashir hear to claim fuck the fortune and the fame yes I’m scorching the game with the flames that I spit always got a spliff lit yes I’m scorching the game with the flames that I spit always got a spliff lit so peace bitch
Track Name: Crossing the Rubicon
The die is cast I’m past the point of no return one last look back at the bridges that I burned during frigid times I learned to rhyme in flames tamed the fire inside to provide a change rearranged the design took the picture out the frame read between the lines of the scriptures that they claim came from God Jehovah Yahweh or Allah they are all the same the only difference is the name man understand self interest is to blame for the maiming of religion a unifying force that’s been used for division though they share the same source Muslims Jews and Christians refuse to listen to logic not Young Sinatra but I come with that hot shit flawlessly I switch the topic like I said before I’m not in it for the profit I’m here to open doors like a locksmith in fact I got this pick set like Shaq then I roll to the rack catch the pass slam and smash the glass having fun with puns but let’s get back on track formula 1 is done so here’s a second batch spent years in the lab but never became a rat I became quite clever as I learned to rap on this endeavor from which I’m never turning back to uncover the truth to find the art of facts to illustrate the proof and carve it into wax millions starve in this world but food we don’t lack 100 billion pounds thrown in the trash in the USA last year alone this is what I have to say about the place I call home a place where waste is second nature

Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen

The place where waste is second nature filling the land instead of the hands of our neighbors damn it’s a shame but in the name of our Creator I will take a stand and reveal my plan I don’t need to plead the fifth let me tell you who I am spliff lit in my left hand mic in my right as I leapt the sands of time while others slept at night I bring my dreams to life once unseen but now but now I shine bright yes I fight the darkness like Maurice Harkless a Trailblazer through this maze where many failed in past days but I stay on target never tarnish or rust but to be honest right now that’s pretty tough goddamn what the fuck how is this man in power how has the White House become the Trump Tower sour taste in my mouth a disgrace to what the United States is all about if your faith ain’t Christian or you face ain’t white he is on a mission to take away your rights imagine this if your skin is dark you’re getting stopped and frisked and if you walk of a mosque you’re getting put on a list when in fact he is the true terrorist there is no debate he manipulates fear and ignorance to create hate if your faith ain’t Christian or you face ain’t white he is on a mission to take away your rights imagine this if your skin is dark you’re getting stopped and frisked and if you walk of a mosque you’re getting put on a list when in fact he is the true terrorist there is no debate he manipulates fear and ignorance to create hate

Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen
