Track Name: Live Intro
Styly Cee in the brickwork
Cap in the bloodline
Genghis 2010s

Yo, I embody this rhyme form
Top of the city to the necropolis, I'm underground
Posthumous, reach high like obelisk
Your time's now, I send the rhymes out ominous
From the drop to the coffin I'm coveted
Heart Of Darkness Brando, the slang Rambo, grandiose
Internash, I speed past scintilate skillet the bars, hit the breaks, you hit the dash
Judge them all as a threat to my castle walls
They want to talk, I just see a clock face ticking
Time passing, my shit is astronomical
You're same old, Caps is Rasputin
Stirling Moss, Valentino Rossi, I'm marvellous
Sharp as Isosceles, cold with the pow-wow
Kick to snare, snare to kick
It's going out to my counter signatories
Premptive strike, gourmet slang
The numbers is high, the money the prize, the son is on fire again
Mongol of the second steppe
A giant leap for mankind, I'm Yuri Gagarin
Be on the lookout, I commence battle
I come in droves, in force, invulnerable
Catch a cash injection, they say, 'Cap's what's cracking?'
I tell them I'm trying to keep the cupboards full
The phone turned off, no outside interference
No settling and I finish like Chev Celios
Fuck the fear and the dread, I'm a one man army
Stand back, you ain't fit to stand with me
The most uphill struggle I undertake
King of the mountains, the glorious colossus
30,000 foot isotope flow glider
The condor live from the command post
Move at a thousand MPH
I'm a free man staring out of an empty cage
John Higgins style, nothing but century breaks
And enemies out of friends what envy makes

Play this game like Sir Bobby Robson
Leave a legacy

Light at the end of the tunnel is on this album
Born from necessity, scorned by rage
Genghis, 2010s. Grandiose. International.
New aroma, Spirit of Victory. Seven.
Track Name: Complete Faith
Somebody want lyrics, I've got the bag full
The commentator back for the trophy, get your mind right
What you know about the director?
I take two and direct a long shot like Hitchcock
I give you product with no flaws
Straight for the hardcore, so you can bang that on your Bang & O's
And fire it up on them Aiwa's and them Technics
My technique's unprecedented, still relentless
I retain the cup for the cabinet
Binocular my on and off flows like hurricanes and typhoons
The grandiose has it locked and keyed
Piranha flows, Bahama heat, bananas, shit...
What part of the game is this?
They're getting away with the grand heist, they ain't never seen the hallway
But they ain't taking the title that Caps owned
I'm Notts born, Notts grown, Nottingham's own
With that extra strength fresh like Trebors
I'm a machine, I give you twenty, hit you off with sixteen more
The heat poured like it's liquid metal
My liquid swords mixed with that napalm shrapnel
So run the gauntlet with me
Hit the corners and the chicanes and see if you don't end up Senna
I rock shows for thousands and for tenners
And it makes no odds, I break it down like a enzyme

I'm the Grand Imperial Condor in flight
You want war tonight, we got war tonight
Yeah, I stand up here and demand all your mics
Look towards the light, I'm the rawest alive
I'm the grand imperial condor in flight
I was born to write, I'm the author, right?
I'm the answer you've been looking for all your life
Bear witness

One day all this will be yours, as far as your eye can see you will own
They will come to you with hate and give you all of their burden
You must carry that weight because I have vouched for you
And I trust in you, in you I have complete faith

As far as your eye can see you will own
They will come to you with hate and give you all of their burden
You must carry that weight because I have vouched for you
And I trust in you, in you I have complete faith

One of the best to do it, I put my effort in
I leave my mark on this planet before I see the finish
I see my enemies, they're watching every move
They talk of me in vain, they have a lot to prove
My power at its peak, my strength never touched
My hunger like a wolfs, I feel adrenaline rush
New blood in my veins, to poison I'm immune
I stand up as the one, the master's making room
Clear a path for him, this art I'm mastered in
I'm hearing what you missed, I'm listening to this
You think you know my style, there ain't a chance in Hell
You standing in my way, then there's Hell to pay
I taught me all I know, and this is all I am
For every bar I wrote this is the pinnacle
So give me strength, I go against the odds
Give me room to breathe, I'm in amongst the gods

I'm the Grand Imperial Condor in flight
You want war tonight, we got war tonight
Yeah, I stand up here and demand all your mics
Look towards the light, I'm the rawest alive
I'm the grand imperial condor in flight
I was born to write, I'm the author, right?
I'm the answer you've been looking for all your life
Bear witness

One day all this will be yours, as far as your eye can see you will own
They will come to you with hate and give you all of their burden
You must carry that weight because I have vouched for you
And I trust in you, in you I have complete faith

One day all this will be yours, as far as your eye can see you will own
They will come to you with hate and give you all of their burden
You must carry that weight because I have vouched for you
And I trust in you, in you I have complete faith
Track Name: Genghis
City of legends
Yeah you heard it right
All present and correct
Grand Imperial Genghis
Yo, these frauds want to steal my music
For those who don't know there is a code to this here
Let's get it in

Never before
Has the world witnessed such an event
Genghis is home
Let it be known I will defend my throne
Send out a call
Send a message far and wide, I have returned
Sound the horns
Fill the streets with celebration
I arrive
Cooper’s town caps slanted, my heavy steps
Shake the earth
Shouting out rap sentence the new superb
My legions telling stories of my adventures
I strike my staff on the ground just to mark on my entrance
This writing's embossed now with the mark of a legend
(high exhalted CA double)

Since I've been gone
I've kept a watchful eye on you all
I've seen the rises and falls
I hold my head for the glorious dead
I know the schemes
I've seen the plots, know the ins and outs
Infidels and foes pure hearted and foul
Heart of the Midlands, I harness the power
And give back to those who held it down and kept their half of the bargain
My heart full of chagrin
I go hard for the martyrdom
Flow's lava, scolding I father this art of wisdom
Marvellous bars blistering I'm hot tar, cross arms
Stood on the arch of my kingdom, start the procession

These are my memories, this is my soil
My heart pounding in my chest and my blood boils
The tension rises, the crowd roars
My voice falls to rapturous applause they record for prosperity
And all will feast on these rarities
Brought from the four corners of the globe at any measures
Through all perils I bring untold national treasures
Back from the dead the ambassador Caps is in presence
Last of the masters of rap's classes, class is in session

Move on 'em

To all my correspondents, respond or not responding
I drop the rawest constants, city of Nottingham
I promise one thing, it's the hottest content
My style is often on some off the roster
Written or off the top, son
For all who see my who see my presence, present or not in presence
You hear the rumbles in the ground when we're approaching
On horseback in rare furs, my lungs burst
I dive headfirst to bring the great laws to all
Those who oppose fall and have your history taken
Imperial and devastating

I wear the amulet, the skill flow and flair immaculate
The light catches off the square medallion
Salute my outfit, tilt your cap for my squadron
Elite generals, rhymers and leaders, all sworn in
Born and raised for one purpose
To build and raise the empire above the Heavens, then surround it with lions
Spirit of light using fire that flies
You're an ally or an enemy
The great Khan, I capture this earth
Destined for greatness, the true creator of verse
Born holding a blood clot, the emcee returns

I appear with microphone flailing
Cavalry of thousands, certain victory increase my territory
Now spread word of my exploits
Move from point to point without mercy I annihilate
All who go against I put the full weight on them
Use my full might and strategy, conquer and expand
Turn tracks to ashes, this I command
The most fearless fearsome rap style in the palm of my hand
Leave the surface smouldering, trailing flames
As we move forward, higher and further into hostile terrain

Imperial Genghis
The world leaders have returned, make it known
Track Name: Provider
Akai Professionals!

Capps fortune illest alive
Hence the name
Incredible, stupendous, your eminence Cappo
I'm the enforcer, lay down roads for you to walk on
Never let em tell you what you can't achieve
I bring the procedure, throw the full weight at ‘em
Charlie Sheen in Wall Street, I goes gung-ho you should've known by now
Sky's the limit and I'm in orbit
I'm awarded with that medal of honour to go above and beyond
Who will be first, who will surpass
I champion this genre of sound that I began
Closer to God now, establishing a need
So it's Cappo now in the fucking driving seat
I've got this age old world at my feet
And I'll be damned if I don't set this shit alight and watch it explode
You know the name, I show you how to do this
Cos I know you lot are clueless on how to move a crowd
Let me show you how

Self belief, I was taught to succeed
And pass this knowledge to my seed, what will be will be
And I will do my level best for you forever
Do whatever it takes to keep us safe and together
Can you compete? Where is your heart?
Can you relate to this day-to-day sonic attack that I provide?
Pressure is a privilege in my book
I'm laying my cards down, still playing my part, trying to survive

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell

(Sample) You do what you are. You're born with a gift, if not that then get good at something along the way. And what you're good at, don't take it for granted. Don't betray it.

You're now invited on this world tour, all expense paid
Akai Professionals, we're flying first class
I got this whole world looking at me
I'm moving fast like 'Damn it feels good to see people up on it'
For my loved ones I walk in the desert
Crossing the T's, dotting the I's, there's no time like the present
Let's get this money now
Give me that critical acclaim, it's for the chosen few who know my name
It's the imagination, magnificent dream weaver, possessor of a bright future
A sight seer with big plans, enough to make the world enthusiastic
Incite the downhearted with magic
Encapsulate the downtrodden with tales of rags to riches
Stories of success and their successors who made it big
Schemes of better days, newly made its and close shaves
Skin flints and speculators, re-up in many ways

I'm the provider, I've found the missing link
Listen to my elders, connect the pieces to the puzzle
Now I return to the grindstone, I will use my hands
I understand that I have been given another chance
And now I'm holding so tight to my ties
Cos I know once them ties are gone you never get another chance
I'm going to be around as a father figure cos I know
Once them ties are gone you never get another chance

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell

The strong shall inherit this earth
I believe I'm prepared, I've been ready from birth
If we stand between Heaven and Hell
Do we really have a choice? Yo, you never can tell
Track Name: Loyalty
It ain't a question of trust
It ain't a question of loyalty
That ain't a question for us
For us, for us, for us

It ain't a question of trust
It ain't a question of loyalty
That ain't a question for us
For us, for us, for us

As I continue and proceed
I will progress through this road test, believe
My loyalty is never in question
The flow as grotesque as ever, I breeze in, George Benson
A couple notes in my pocket and I'm so composed
With Denzel flair I Elm Street the dishevelled
Attic man I walk the paths of McKasty
The late great, I will take solace in, I surmise
Thinking of cash-flow, family and shelter
Whenever frustrated I will six gear this mic
And try to block my path, so I will re-calibrate
Wear the peak forward and visualize the light

(Sample) I'm not a regular competitor, first rhyme editor

The cover is a stamp-sized version of a bigger picture
I study what I know is classic
Put down my slab of funk, my life inside a A4 pad
Play the game like a Akai
Stay in brief contact with past allies
Some are match fit, some are ring rusty and it's crazy how
Pain and loss will keep a man sharp
Believe your own hype

As the world rotates I watch and observe
Chaperoning my kin, calculate and confirm
Microphone in my palm, fitted cap on the brow
MPC tucked under the arm and, yeah
It's a long way down from here
Life at a perilous height that most won't reach
Be on your P's and Q's and stay chisel
Remain calm, loyal and true, remain official

That's right, British Aerospace
I will spit grand, foot down, R8 V10
Covered in symbols of status, the emblems is laminated
Fresh decals on the paintwork
And if you're not in no regular contact
Then you're in no position to put that ten pence in my fitted
And my five-panel's so valid
A decade of visors I advise the subscribers
The fury of men, some glorious victory
The winning streak is in place, I'm at battle stations
Where I leave my cap, that's my home
I'm Notts born, Notts grown, Nottingham's own
Paint a picture like Pablo, a Ready Brek glow on any cold unforgiving scene
I sophisticate a basic gist
I've got the vice grip grasp on this process from the rough sketch to the high gloss

It ain't a question of trust
It ain't a question of loyalty

The history behind the idea
The sequence of events before the outcome
The seed planted and the roots grown
Loyalty will make the leaves sprout and breed truth now
Welcome to a world of difference, you are worlds apart
I spar with clean conscience
Louisiana yellow on the black and LA on the green
Fitted fiend bald head it’s in the genes heavy regime
They're paying homage to a broke promise
I'm still hand on my wallet saying 'I ain't never going broke'
The rhyme schemes is lucrative
The loops is hypnotic and self-sufficient
I think of this, no doubt I'm putting in work
Put it there, y'all, shake on it
If we in agreement then co-sign
All or nothing, cos you and I know that it's do or die
And I ain't never trying to be sane of mind

As the world rotates I watch and observe
Chaperoning my kin, calculate and confirm
Microphone in my palm, fitted cap on the brow
MPC tucked under the arm and, yeah
It's a long way down from here
Life at a perilous height that most won't reach
Be on your P's and Q's and stay chisel
Remain calm, loyal and true, remain official

It ain't a question of trust
It ain't a question of loyalty
That ain't a question for us
For us, for us, for us

It ain't a question of trust
It ain't a question of loyalty
That ain't a question for us
For us, for us, for us
Track Name: Magna Carta
Look

The illest categorically thus far
Before the ink dry I will bring that Krakatoa
Rapping Matt Monroe, I compose overtures
I'm long gone, 7:30, man overboard
I put the cap on, it's the finishing touches
The custom fitted, the puzzle solving, the gold threaded
Hulk blooded, now your time's up
Cruise the eye of fear, turn to cup winners like I'm Brian Clough

I'm getting this guap straight
And making my own ways back to the N O
We're known in the N O double, no need to explain
I make stones bleed to gather money, do anything it takes
For the green cash, I'm getting this guap straight
And making my own ways back to the N O
Streets, roads and paths we have a obligation to this town
They call it the Gold City, I call it quits and vanish

The irrepressible flow builder
No tricks, this is reinforced bar welding
I spark like flint against flint
I'm a glimpse into the not so distant, the history man
And the cycle returns back round
They ask about this tailor-made engineering, so I tell em
(sample) You can't trust nobody, no-one, no-one

Sharp around the edges
Scheme from wedges
Consummate professional, staying light keeping my pockets fat
Need that morbidly obese currency
Heavy equity in thick slabs make the hairs on my neck rise
Cheque stubs making my mouth water
Fill up the Thinsulate black glove with all of the above
Fill the top draw with grub, I'm out on my own
For the silver line on any scale, for the goods I never fail

Heat to ice, I bring that pain to the mic
Cos Notts City the most real
I see the actions of others through the moves that you make
MC Escher, picture in a picture
It's built up in four bar blocks
This here will lift spirits, make a weak rapper scramble
Never let the small change change me
I separate the weak from the obsolete
I'm from a place where your best ain't good enough
You best have a plan b or I'ma bring the tunnel vision
I sketch lazer outlines and colours into the burner that reads a rolling stone in the concrete
And I'm throwing everything that I possess at it
In the static I create flows pyroclastic
From where you never been I stay holding fort
I'm the billionaire b-boy, Magna Carta

Watch
(sample) You can't trust nobody, no-one, no-one

For this green cash I'm getting this guap straight
And making my own ways back to the N O
We're known in the N O double, no need to explain
I make stones bleed to gather money, do anything it takes
For this green cash, I'm getting the guap straight
Making my own ways back to the N O
Streets, roads and paths we have a obligation to this town
They call it the Gold City, I call it quits and vanish

Uncontrolled, in control, uncontrollable
I controlled and I harness the discipline I command and I conquer
Study, imitate, recreate, then I master
Air I breathe, what I thirst and I hunger
The Trinity, the only vices I'm under
No man made or earth made can affect me
My new drive and my will resurrects self
Bulldozer, Lord bowzer, King Cooper
Man of iron, Pudzinowski raw power
Still immune, still ill, still so hard
Reflection of its day and age but it still stood
May our paths never cross, never cross me
Disrespect? Come a cropper, costly
I got the streamlined modernised model
Live off land, they're biting from the hand that feeds them
Track Name: Fire With Fire
This is survival of the fittest
Fuck the untrained and malnourished
You will only have yourselves to blame when judgment gets passed
I'm sure footed, stood up I stand up
Forty-eight laws of power I stacked up
Fifty-two weeks of the year I'm steady serving McEnroe aces to the sour and bitter
My nineties leather built Nikes laces drooping, big loops and samples
We're them monsters sweeping through your city in two strides
Bigfoot, banging my chest, cannibal flesh eater
You're hanging from a thin thread, comrade
Now run for cover when I drop
The evil that men do I punish with a forty day reign
The Midlands ambassador, the monarch, I’m volatile
Obliterate and abomanise
Fifty foot castle walls cover my whereabouts, the matador
Stepping over the bullshit
I'm back with that mortified and morbid to throw in the cauldron
The rhyme to mic ratio is pure OD
I cold slab the vocab with no fee

Squad leader, competition is none
I can't stop, won't stop, napalm, H-Bomb
DivideD Kingdom, buckle up, now brace yourselves for the almighty uppercut
My crack team formation's in place
Clear the area, flatten all opposition, bring the hammer down
With that barbed wire kybosh
Full onslaught, leave the industry a write-off
Flight of the light brigade, we sweep on them
Thousand yard snares and giant machine beats on ‘em
We beast on ‘em, MPC beats got ‘em running for the hills
When ten thousand warriors storm your Fort Knox, Z-U-L-U
Some men living in the Stone Age
While I'm gathering my product from the periodic table
I'm the animal that Hugh Hefner created
The most innovative today, Caps, fuck it, the very same
And you'd best to feel my presence
I supply on demand
(sample) Send them back to the fucking essence

(sample) Fuck it, let's do it
I got the Trent flows, I got the pace and a half a yard
Capital N slanted across my chest
I hold the mic cable like a rotting wire
I came from Nottinghamshire to settle the score
My outfit is full platoon
William Dafoe's and Sheen dynasty's, give the ruler some room
The track Goliath, my spiel David, metal gear patriots
Fuck your miscarriage of justice, I carry the weight
Let the iron curtain sweep to cut off your exits
Cut off your air supply, my aim reckless
Spray the vocals, eyes closed, any direction
Many have tried but none have made a profession
I live by and die by none escaping the reign
And we in full ascendancy now
I move forth, right, cut and bring your embassy down
I went from start to finish and declared myself skipper
Self-financed, maim the bars and flame retardant
If you ain't going full bore
Best prepare for Unicron cos I fight fire with fire

Track Name: Turns & Twists
Yeah
Cappo
Nottingham's own
The Midlands ambassador
Y'know, just some thoughts from the mind, take a glimpse into time

It's like I'm holding my breath
And standing still until I'm back in the lab
It's like I'm living as mute
Living in isolation til I'm back with the pad
It's like the pen is morphine
The beat's anaesthetic and time's the great healer
The slate cleaner
Feel the excellent rush, there's no feeling like it

It's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're here the next minute you're not
I put my life into the hands of fate, I can't call it

I'm the common denominator
I’m in office, even on my off days I'm obligated
Hip-Hop culture is my rule of thumb
I’ve come to think of this as kin, this is water for thirst
Yo, and this is food for thought
My sustenance when the food is short
And often this is the only thing
That can keep me owning the onus and focussing
This is for those who witnessed my highs and witnessed my lows
And still pick the phone up when I'm ringing home
This is for those who are still here
And never still here, always moving and can still hear
Those who put their faith in, whether broke or caking
Through the ups and downs cultivating
That's them right there, that's my heroes
Father figures, they're my tight-knit, that's my kinfolk

Yo, it's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're there the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, I can't call it

I can't call it
You never know
It's Caps
Let's go

I'm on that final stretch, the last lap
Now I watch for those who I crossed and wronged on the way up
Cos on the way down without doubt they'll be there
Using all their might this time to right their wrongs
I'm at the end point, the last level hallway
Been here before, this is when the shit really hits the fan
This is when your trustees are turning ugly
And trying to unweave your tight-knit patterns in your battle plan
Stan Lee couldn't paint a better picture
When the Venom hits ya how you gonna stay immune and overcome?
You best to tight lip, keep a tight ship
All that slack jaw is gonna sink your SS Victory
I'm trying to stay a couple steps ahead
A couple extra hours in the distance cos time is of the essence
And honestly nobody want to see you properly make it
They'd rather be giving you their commiserations
Smiling through gritted teeth and trying to pick holes
I heavy step while they tiptoe through crib-holds
My silent missiles miles under the radar
Opening a hole that leads to the grey yonder
After the album I'm taking a hiatus
Let the mind race in and vacate to the skyscrapers
Recuperate in the cut and conduct the slow thunder
Cos absence will make the heart grow fonder

Yo, it's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're there the next minute you're not
I put my life into the hands of fate, I can't call it

It's like I'm holding my breath
It's like I'm holding my breath
And standing still until I'm back in the lab
It's like I'm living as mute
Living in isolation 'til I'm back with the pad
It's like the pen is morphine
The beat's anesthetic and time's the great healer
The slate cleaner
Feel the excellent rush, there's no feeling like it
Track Name: Barcode
These rappers acting like they're emcees but they have no idea
You know why I'm here? To end your career
The reaper's paying a visit to you
The ending is near, you still have no clue
You're double-knotted lacing up a dead man's shoe
You're not ready yet, young 'un this is not your time
I suggest standing back from the abyss, dismissed, about face
Never charge in without faith
Read the plaque under your feet and learn from your mistakes
You're now standing in the shadows of Colossus
Known the world overs, you could never be on this level
Yeah I'm beyond anything that you could ever comprehend
So you should understand without me you don't exist
I gets 15-10 with the pen
1510 and when the mic's on I'm on another plateau I'm a cyclops
Pummel the side one to a pulp
Rhymed up to the hilt, your time's up

(sample)You heard just what I said
(Cappo) You live by the barcode, die by the barcode
(sample)You heard just what I said

(Cappo) You live by the barcode, die by the barcode
(sample)You heard just what I said, they're always pulling you back when you want to get ahead

Ticking time bomb, from line one my mind's gone
They never take me alive, I take this whole world with me
Rotten from the inside, I'm insane, it's ingrained
Focus with no pain, no guilt, no regret
I bring the intrigue from the inner sleeve of the LP
Confined in the spine of the album cover
I combine with the double vinyl plastic template
Reclined in the sleeve design, this is the package
This is the item they're pressing and burning
It's the Magnum Opus, Magna Carta ferocious, limited edition
Christened as a sophomore audio overture
Hailed as a detailed grail, now available
The passage, a graphic novel of paragraphs and spaces, headlines and phrases
Known and unknown, said and unsaid
Rise and fall, fall and rise like the undead

(sample)You heard just what I said
(Cappo) You live by the barcode, die by the barcode

Key to the city that's never slept or slept on
I damage your armour with reverse psychology
I am a very real threat to your network
Your colony is scattered by my expert ballistics
Deep in the city that's head of strength and headstrong
I damage your honour with advanced technology
We're world beaters, you evoke the past
I revoke your future, call me Genghis
N,O, double-T, S, I'm fierce, this is piece de resistance
Since the days of Lugs and Filas
And there ain't no chatting BS in here, this shit is real up in Notts
You can tell my city is wired
Notts is on fire, I'm live, I hire and I fire
I'm like the big boss, shouting KID
Mighty mighty Nottinghamshire we live and inspire
Inside a vivid environment, the bow-and-arrow borough
Track Name: Gilgamesh II
Grand Imperial
Genghis

Grand. I'm flying so hybrid, my eyes are wide
I'm flying so high my nose bleeding
The flow's co-signed with Gamble & Proctor
Household name franchises, worldwide
Distribute this polluted essay through the best way I know how
I wrote down for my nest egg
Let's take a look into the minds of the resolute
I only salute my highly admired elders
Respect my thousand corpses
I gallop with the wildest horses
My tour-de-force talk is impenetrable
Amicable, I'm Amityville
Escorted on tour by minotaurs, I'm a fire hazard
Man of fire, I flame on
Orange Thing hood up burn alive at the stake
My library has the books unopened
The last pages torn out
I'm hardback, retarded, Hella dumb

New chemist medicine I pepper spray the formula one
I'm the close call, I'm the nightbreed, on the high ‘C’s
To the 'A', the double 'P', O, I let it be known
That we don't disappear, we grow and multiply

We thriving, Mode 2, Futura 2000
Jump off from ground zero, you are surrounded
I'm renowned for pounding surround sounds relentless
The henchest, I apply pressure now you're mine, precious
I assess the situation and my guess is this is the essence of being dope
Give me a note, give me a key
I'm seeing clear and saying nobody is seeing me, so take note
I'm unsightly, make most admire me
And break those who try to scapegoat, my name's known
I been first, I bring a verse as reimbursement
Twin-turbo exhaust Porsche, important
Export the pure raw to ports and inspire the entire force
I bring forth the winged horse and iron eagle
I am evil, rhyme diesel, breathe fire, primeval

Lifestyles of the harsh thinker
Specialist epidemic injector, flow rejuvenator

They ink waiting in my pen for the death sentence
And when the message is sent, they're on the roads to recovery
I leave no stone unturned, no dough unearned
Back to the days when I rose from obscurity
I make a living, I make it known
No matter how much he owns he can't take it with him
When he's rotten, or when he's burned
No matter how much he moans he can't make em listen
When he's arisen his soul is in his family's prayers
Up in the air in their thoughts and in their visions
And if there is any Heaven he will be there
But to all of us here he is gone but not forgotten
I cascade the light on the subject
And yeah I may be right, I may be wrong
So I take it one step at a time, still ahead of my time
Still spending my time like it's a million

Still spending my time like it's a million and one
I have no fear of death, I'm death proof
I wear the cloak and mask of a broken past, eternal youth
Ghostwrite un-natural, I spread my fleshless wings and rebirth this red dragon

Your eyes are now mirrors to the real
Blood flowing from the meal, I digest sins of my father
Bring forth the harshest winter
The harbinger of darkness enters in your apartment centre
Claret flowing from the walls
I pay for my gifts, sifting through the white sheets, sink my teeth in the white meat
Pull apart the narrow line margins
Puppeteer I move you, hanging from your sinew strings
I sing you sleep, then continue to reap this empty harvest
I'm mentally the hardest, I harness the start and finish
Beginning and end and then begin again regardless, put this on repeat
Yeah, I sing you sleep, then continue to reap this empty harvest
I'm mentally the hardest, I harness the start and finish
Beginning and end and then begin again regardless, Cesare Borge
Track Name: Most Wanted
Fuck a first line, fuck a one-liner
My album is correct like the reps on my MP
The wait is over, get your fix, get it here first
Let them scrap for second and thirds
I'm based where they lace the tapes with bass
Where the rats chase the poison and fight amongst themselves
For a pittance, I ain't playing no part
I will take away this plate and watch them starve
Speak of my name in vain again and catch this Macbeth syndrome
The Caps is here, see em scrutinise the lines
I brutalise, stop dead in their tracks, they're soaking up the sublime
Hear it through the car door, I'm Carte D'or
Strict hardcore, fuck a sales figure I'm a sales figure
Watch em sail up shits creak with no paddle
I don't dilute or divert from my planned route
I spaz the universe this time
Hear, yeah, if you're with me hit the switch for me, it's time
I'm sick of these non-achievers
Tell em this is for the real who've been through it and done it
Let's move

(sample) Lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically I'm most wanted
You should know my steelo
Dramatically
These beats'll spaz out
It's mine now

If I gotta go out I'm going out the Richard Pryor father way
In skirt 'till my dick in the dirt
I'm the shit like I'm Lord of the Flies
The world against me? So fuck the world and don't ask me for shit
I got it banging like I'm Brian Wilson
And I'm spreading out manure that could fuck with your senses, pa
This ain't a movement, this is a blur
You don't see where we are now, you see where we were
I hustle like a young Russell
And I'm still reproducing like a young Rick Rubin, you should've known
People's champ, the people chant 'Caps, get at em'
A runaway success story, official stamp
Government approved, fully endorsed
Sign for New Era sponsorship deal, Imperial Sports
Hugo Chavez, the true GOAT rapper and you go crackers when you scope the new flow, cracking
I don't think you know who you're dealing with
From one extreme to another, I'm the meaning of the most wanted
Get on my Jack Nicholson and walk alone as the host
As long as there is breath in my lungs I will be

(sample) Lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically, lyrically
You should know my steelo
Dramatically
These beats'll spaz out
It's mine now

The moment of brilliance, I'm rhyming impeccable
Edward Norton, the red Jordan, on the cap and the sole
Remember days when we had the control on the page
When Notts rappers gracing the cover, we had the influx
Now I'm back in that same spot
Bat in my hand, ball at my feet, ready to fuck shit up
Now who's with me?
Meaning, who's running alongside the one who changed rap forever with one rhyme?
Hold it
Track Name: Re-Cap
Where this still lives, the absolute ownership
I put my all in this, stand or fall with this
It's like I fiend that pressure, creases ironed out
I am alive, I am a breed that is dying out
Now the world as you know it is about to change
I take a couple steps forward till I'm out of range
Higher and further than you've ever been
We're Notts City skyscrapers, we paint them bigger pictures
The mode is ultra, recognise I'm ultra
Bound for superbness, Imperial
The masterpieces on repeat behind the wheel
I seen it from an early age from behind the beat
Now let it float like icecaps and glaciers
And let it freeze like cubes of H2O
And let ‘em know we still defying, heart of a lion
And you can't keep a good man down
Let's get it done

A re-cap on the success story

I got my elbow on the door-frame
Royal blue Detroit peak with the long sleeve
Eyes narrow, seat sunken
The track's cracking, the beat knocking like it's box fresh
My feet rocking Airforce that's box fresh, everything new
Victory apparel, all hidden brands
Hitting play then repeat, celebrate the release
Shoulders swollen, stomach aching
New vinyl in the boot, new carpet upholstery in the booth
Now let's get it, let's prioritise, let's get this livelihood
I've built the mega-structure, I have to make this count
I'm stood alone with no vices, only pen and page
Congratulate me on the sacrifice the seventh day
Begin a year the way I mean to end it
My scene is direct, I seamless edit until you see them credits ending
Steady spending time getting riches getting right
I'm getting set to get ahead in life, get the message right

Where would I be without you?
Probably be RIP without you
Six feet deep without you
That's why I speak about you
Like you're my deepest counsel
Let's keep it moving

Imperial

Spark another 40 watt lightbulb up in the pitch black
Until the fast life fatigue gets a hold of me
I run on empty with that hollow feel in me
Hit the hammock then I'm back at Jack Frost with the bleary eye
My days blurring into months like a sharp shock
I have to lean somewhere, I have to place trust
Still in that win-win situation, you can't state it more clearly now, we have this under control
You know this money's my goal, but there is so much more to it
This is put from the soul
It's given straight from the soul so when I step into the booth
You know that thunder's gonna roll
I give you something to solve
Something to run with and hold, something to structure and mold
And keep it all under wraps, keep it all under the cap
Let's get it sold
