Bad Habits

feat JNR

Chorus

I had Bad habits, Bad habits
I had to clean up my vibe
I make sure the energy right
Bad habits, Bad habits
Weak minds never win
So we in the lab again

Bad habits, Bad habits
I had to clean up my vibe
Make sure the energy right
Bad habits Bad habits
Now we do it for the tribe
Who will bet against the light

Verse 1

Imma make a milli off a book
Speak truth from the spirit world
In all black, this Hillman
Im Dwayne Wayne, its a different world
I just wanna tell my side
I just wanna help my guys
Nthelab and we so fly
With the Wifi to the most high
But sometimes i been the most high
Medicate for the low vibe
Meditate till i elevate
Till i see past my own eyes
See past my own eyes
See past my own

Verse 2

1st generation here
Said we made it through the tears
Couldn’t see it from the other side
Had to make it through the fear
And now i gotta couple fans
Aint nothing better than the plan
Imma really be a shrink
cause we only how we think
Vision small, never win at all
tapped in, now i see it all
Be it all, keep em reassured
we gon make it, don’t be alarmed
I was hip to the process, embrace pain for the progress
We gon take it from house shows and small shows to mosh pits
Now motivation on Kobe
Make songs to remember like oldies
In West Palm with a Wav$ beat
And my muse just sippin on Stolis
Its lookin like no days off,
We had to pay that cost
Free the mind, gotta be aligned
NtheLAB is the vibe with NO
Bad habits

 

Ripe for the Harvest

Chorus

Sunny days and cloudy days
Yet everything remains the same
Sunny days and cloudy days
Yet all we ever know is change

Verse 1

Everything straight from the garden
Everything great for the harvest
Everything from where we started
We are the ones who were martyred
Everything ripe for the season
Everything ripe with all meanin
I am the one who was seasoned
fighting with women and demons

Verse 2

Just get off my back, U can’t rock with me
With the rod and the staff, u can't rock with me
in the lab till we master the energy
With the keys and the eights its a recipe
Just get off my back, U can’t rock with me
With the rod and the staff, u can't rock with me
Add the drum and a bass for the energy
Nthelab yea we mastered the chemistry

Verse 3

Everything great for the harvest
Everything ripe for the season
Everything from where we started
We are the ones with the meanin
Just Get off my back, U can’t rock with me
With the rod and the staff, u can't rock with me
In the lab till we master the energy
With the keys and the eights its a recipe

 

LOMBARDI

Chorus

I got trophies
My negus got lombardis
Eagle eye the prize
Who in hell could stop me
Trophies
Got my Fawohodie!
When i black out call me holy holy

Verse 1

Blame carolina for that 2 3 swag
4th quarter, we the ones to advance
You better check ur mans
I know the shooter and his doctors too
In real life all my raps is the truth
And I'm the black babe ruth
The way i called it out before it was fact
Yall Keanu yall don't know how to act.
You better stick to the script
This the part where the real ones win
Nthelab yea we did it again

Verse 2

I came in the game with a flame to my name
AZA really will wrestle the reign
From all of you jokers and posers and lames
Not here for the money or power or fame
But imma get all that too
Nthelab yea we paid our dues
Paul pierce cause im really the truth
Superman when i step in the booth
Man we came along way from rockin Payless sneaks
to Costa Rica boogie boards on the beach
Like life is a peach
We paid it all, sweat blood and tears
Nthelab baby, this our year!

 

Not Your Type

Chorus
I apologize i know I'm not your type
She said she wanna hood nigga
Drug money, fast cars

Verse 1

She said promises are for fools
And I didn't make the rules
But i can play by em
And she wont stay, i am
Lost in the pieces
Tryna get even

Verse 2

He said promises are for fools
And I didn't break the rules
But i can play by em
And I wont stay, i am
Lost in the pieces
Did we get even?

 

Choices

feat Uni

Chorus

No revolution if you can’t take the heat
Freedom isn’t given, and it sure as hell ain’t free

Verse 1

New slaves, Old game
Just look at your last name
He said he had no choice
Livin in the fast lane
That sounds right
Get the marijuana light
We here for the night
And She here for tonight
Can we smoke it all away
No pain, no way
Thats my fault
Thats our loss  
She said hearts they don’t unbreak
I thought of Coretta
She asked was that the FBI callin your phone
he said
Too much pressure
Just a late night endeavor
You know they be callin my phone
Heal a nation, break a home

Verse 2

Colin took a knee
Then he took the fall
He don’t got a job
We was watchin ball
New slaves, Old game
Tell me what’s your last name
new choices
Cause we the new voices
We the new Malcolms
Hit em for a ransom
Ancestors please give strength to me
They said the truth will set us free
The truth will set us free

Outro

I've been working harder tryna conquer the impossible
I've been seein visions, losing sleep inside the hospital
I've been goin crazy, tryna make the mission possible
We've been finding truth, I hope you find it in our gospel
I'm really focused on being my greatest
I see that's it comin I'm feelin it lately
Lately I'm losin losing my sleep over science and music
to prove its it's my passion to do this here
got that thirst here
How many projects in the first year?
Did all that during 3rd year
Of med school, let's be clear
So 1 time for the ancestors
2 times for the bad sisters
3 times for the real ones
who played CHOICES and movin with us
Some hated, not mad it
Cause A few things changed since Bad Habits
Celebrate when the spirit guides
The team strong and our spirits high
On Jah

 

HOTBOYZ

Verse 1

So many degrees in my circle
Trump will never see our angle
My people couldn't play it safe
Put up money for the case
Too many squares in your system
We bad boys, we the Pistons
J like Rodman on the block
You wont get a second shot
We be in a different league
I'm Isaiah, this a steal
I had studied all the codes
We be in a different mode
My boy got the kale for the wholesale
See we gotta speak in code
Spendin this money to celebrate
We livin a way yea we demonstrate

Chorus

That Summer Summer 18

Not all knowledge, is in college
Not all dogs get to heaven
Skin tatted with the symbols
And we believe in the 7s
Hotboyz, Hotboyz, Hotboyz   

Got the power on the team
Every drop is a heat rock
We gettin higher than our dreams

 

Traphall Music Sweet

Pre Chorus

She tellin me that trap hall music sweet
I told her rock her hips if she feel the beat
The prophet told us dance cause we are free
And everybody wants just to feel irie
They tellin me that trap hall music sweet
Everybody rock if you feel the beat
The prophet told us dance cause we are free
And everybody wants just to feel irie

Chorus

Nthelab we making vibes music vibes music
Eveybody nice, feeling right music
Come with me Forget your troubles for the night,  music
Stay outta babylon and inna jah light music

Verse

My uncle took me down to Brooklyn
Yea he bought me a tape
He told me listen to what Bob had to say
Yea  that was back in the day
He took me home and threw on natural mystic
The way the bass came in was so sick
My grandma danced to Jimmy Cliff
She said dont worry at all
the harder enemies come
is just the harder they fall.
AZA making movements now
My granddaddy made shoes
And on those shoulders
We see the world with a clear view
The blood of the greatest ones run through my veins
Voices of legends they call my name
Overstand history, everything’s plain
Don't forget past and your path will change
The spirit of ancestors keepin us strong
Telling us fight and we must hold on
Keep walking towards light and you’ll see the dawn
We fightin the fight until victory’s won.

 

Beat Almighty

Chorus 1

When the music hits your soul
You got nowhere to go
When the groove makes you move
You won't know what to do
It’s the beat almighty
Rockin to the beat almighty

Chorus 2

Let I and I rise over traphall vibes
Tell them keep love alive
(Tell them keep spirits high)
With the beat almighty
Rockin with the beat almighty

So what you tryna do?
What you tryna do?

Verse 2

Trap hall music
New beats old feel for the movement
We did it for the culture
Nthelab its a really new genre
AZA resurrect the facts
We came to teach what the future lacked
Repair the breach, bring the spirit back
You have all the light when you really black
Thats a physics fact
You keep all the light when you really black
Thats a physics fact
Let I and I rise over traphall vibes
Tell them keep spirits high

 

High Frequency

Chorus

Out my mind, out of sight
We live a different type of life
The Frequency higher than marley
Smokin ganja on a flight
Now That's really really high
And since music never dies
My energy be here forever
Nthelab is the vibe

Out my mind, out of sight
We Live a different type of life
The Frequency higher than marley
Smokin ganja on a flight
Now That's really really high
And since spirit never dies
My energy be here forever
Nthelab is the vibe

Verse 1

Some a yall lost the spirit
What u put out, we dont wanna hear it
Low vibe low vibe
These artist ain't servin up scriptures
Just a bunch of bad opinions
I was the one that was missin
Feel the change, see the vision
Say my name, say my name
Then Tell em Allah sent him
my cousin just got out the prison
That's why my calls he was missin
We was just tryna do business
I know the law never listens
Tell ur ppl pay attention
We was just givin out lessons
We was just given yall blessins
May we all win’s what the family sprays
Maybe I’m manic been up for 3 days
Only talk to the law when the lawyer fee straight
Anything else they gon use what you say
Against you, im learnin nothin is safe
Only for those who walk in the way
X told the feds he would never confess
Shotgun, close range, straight to the chest.

Verse 2

AZ givin yall doctrines
I was meditatin in the south end
I was levitatin on a mountain
I was givin out good counselin
We know the mental is everything
I went and got a degree for that
We know as above so below
We know calibration of the poles
We know calculations for the soul
Money is everything
When u have everything else
We gotta do it ourself
The prophet always dies first
Put my body in the dirt
Put my words in a book
and the rest in a hook
Even jesus had a cross
Malcolm x took a loss
Life doesn’t take long
Death is nothing to the strong

 

UNLIKELY STORIES

Chorus

We grind
Beast time
Then kick back by the seaside
We shine  
Free minds
You cant see us, we high
I'll never die till I give it up
Another life so i live it up
It's still a game so i leveled up

We grind
Beast time
Then kick back by the seaside
We shine  
Free minds
Paid the price to be light
I'll never die till I give it up
Another life so i live it up
It's still a game so i leveled up

Verse 1

I don’t know if i deserve it
I made mistakes but I didn't pay
I really didn’t do it perfect
Hope in the end I'm worth shit
I’m really hopin I could take it
Things change and people change
I'm feelin real isolated
Is this the price of greatness?
But Daddy gave orations
You can win it if you hold tight
You can lead it if you earn sight
You can do it if you work right
Praises be to the old slaves
New kings, to the old ways
On solid rock I stand
Black Power from my land

Pre Chorus 1

Once i was just a dream
Mommy manifested me
Said she knew what I could be
She said the prophecy was real
Just a boy from trinidad
When we finally get what we never had
We unlikely stories
Work for the family’s glory

Verse 2

There is no truth before liberation
This took generations
And I was patient,
been tellin J yo we gotta make it
We did it all for the mission and yeah we really be groovin
But this is more than the music, this is a movement
We can do anything, word to the city
My mind elevated, but keepin it Gritty
We doin the work, its a lifestyle
We can conquer it all in a lifetime
Daddy beat these bad ways  
Mommy kissed my face
I was headed for the precipice
Was amazing grace.

Pre chorus 2

Once i was just a dream
Mommy manifested me
Said she knew what i could be
She said the prophecy was real
Daddy gave me soul
Music made me whole
We unlikely stories
Just give the family glory

Outro

Daddy beat these bad ways  
Momma kissed my face
I was headed for the precipice
Was amazing grace.

I had done all the math
Some of it didn’t add
We unlikely stories
Told em give Jah glory!

 

For Pain

Chorus

Woke up this morning feeling good yea
We be still livin in the hood yea
Still give jah thanks for the good yea
And I'm still tryna live like I should yea
The news said the sky is fallin
Told my daughter don’t worry darlin
We have the ancient recipe
They said love was our frequency
And we'll all be free someday

Interlude

Put your hands to the sky if you feel the vibe
Put your hands to the sky if you feel the vibe
Put your hands to the sky if you feel the vibe
And may you really find your peace of mind

Verse 1

I told my nigga that the pain was the key yea
Before we didn't know what we could really be yea
I had to struggle just to find a bit of peace yea
We had to study up on all of the beliefs yea
Why do we take these breaths?
Why do we take these steps?
How can I right these wrongs?
How could I be so wrong?
That's why we write these songs
I was just tryna find relief yea
Drink a little bit, go chief keef yea
I wanna hear the message rockin in the streets yea
Cause we the sources of the answers that we seek yea
Cause we the sources of the answers that we seek yea
Man i said that it was ripe

This my second life
This is livin for the light, come on

Verse 2

They said more good days coming
Gotta feel more pain for abundance
Bad shit happens every day yea
But we the real ones tryna make a way yea
Just tryna find a way to make a space yea
Just tryna find a way to the grace yea
Free the mind let my spirit run the race yea
I hope my kids just be happy that I made them
I'm just tryna find my way to patience.
I'm just tryna master all the basics
PG parties we was rockin in the basement
Music had a way to chase away the anguish
I was just tryna find relief yea
Drink a little bit, go chief keef yea
I wanna hear the message rockin in the streets yea
Cause we the ones with the answers that we need here!
