Track Name: Casualties Iz A Killah
Hit 'em like 500 pounds, live from the underground
Can't deny the vibe, it's that worldwide "Shut 'Em Down"
Militant musical movement, S1W's
Pivotal future improvements,
My work is never done!,
Ain't slippin' because of you, Who? The troublesome scum
Son of a gun, Bang 'em like the funky drummer should bump
Rappers is monkey's uncles, Uncover the front
Phony dj's look silly like SW1
Y'all flex in moderation, but my gorillas go apeshit
You sodomized a sovereign nation with that silicon fake shit
But we really don't take shit
Put a beat to that - fast -
like she needed that
and now I need a piece of that ass,
America!

Keep tabs on what I'm owed
Believe that's what I know
Ain't shook, Seen 'em creepin' on down the road
Hey look!, At least I still got my soul!
And if I can gain anything from this dirty game
They pullin' licks, so stay slick, and use your brain
We comin' up!
We comin' up!
Ain't about to play the casualty
Track Name: Rather Be A Go(guer)rilla
Yin & yang
But how does that play into the game,
when machines think the same?
Most are just tryna run with the winning gang
Others are ass'd out, lame, pitiful shame
Under a corrupt king & queen's taint reign
Clouded by a smokey enflamed membrane
Popped like puss burstin', Penetrates strange
Some hesitate to stake claims
but I aim like BRING THE PAIN!
Stop children!, What's that sound?
Top billin' villain in the hunchback tower
Rock willin' feelin' at the comeback hour
"Fight The Power" contact high, a little louder now!

CASUALTIES IZ A KILLAH
SO I'D RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
LIKE THAT'S A LITTLE ILLER
THAN FANTASY TO THE REALER
YEAH, I'D RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT
GET READY FOR THE FIGHT

I pledge allegiance to umm, my gut feelings
Yet to let me down in this world of cut up heathens
breathin' that touch of healin' schpeel to abduct civilians
like it ain't enough to clutch billions from drug dealing
so what's evil?
Besides buildin' prisons and fillin' 'em up with people
that never had a chance
or never knew they had a chance
Not until they saw bars closed
That's a hard load
Goddamn! Crack the barcode!
Devils take strange forms,
So I brainstorm
let my brain form like a fort
Thwart any rotten apple in my court
Annihilate contamination with careful examination
Peace to the Gods that laid down this foundation
They tried to downsize us to hounds bound and chained in
Pinch my nose at the stank of a foul nation
Can't wait to make those tyrants pray for their salvation
from damnation,
Draft a rap like you fought in Iraq
and got drafted back, Now ain't that a sad fact?
From legal pills to smokin' crack, freebassin'
to radio stations gettin' hijacked by rap freemasons
Hip hop needs a vaccination
Wonder where we headed
Somewhat of a blunder
Don't be mad because I said it
You could be a bah-bah sheep if it fits you
I'm a go(guer)rilla, Bust walls and let loose!

CASUALTIES IZ A KILLAH
SO I'D RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
LIKE THAT'S A LITTLE ILLER
THAN FANTASY TO THE REALER
YEAH, I'D RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
RATHER BE A GO(GUER)RILLA
THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT
AIN'T GOIN' DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT
Track Name: Amateur Night Hype
No handicaps & no crutches
No fannypacks & no puppets
Just str8 raw classic mackdaddy raps back-to-back rugged
like that ol' back alley cat fillin' his stomach
Still I'm hungry like I've never seen food
but fake shot callers is like "Who? I've never seen dude!"
Never knew he was lurkin' in the background,
perfectin' these rap sounds or workin' his mack down
Burglars, back down! 'Tis I who wrote this shit
Could never run dry, but I'm only Fresh as my Associates
Spat that bar on account of my friends though
How that beat pound? Kinda sounds like Dren Doh's
Shittin' on wack producers
Plus cornballs with gold medals actin' like sore losers
while I only ever come up and bust witha winner's touch
Rhyme after rhyme, yet you swear it's beginner's luck

NO HIT 'ER QUIT 'ERS 'CAUSE THE BROTHA DON'T PLAY
I GET IT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, WHAT'D I SAY?
I DON'T QUIT IT, GET IT, DID I STUTTER?
TAKE IT WITH THE STRIDE
LIKE I'M
(J DILLA'S VOICE: "ONE OF THE GREATEST ALIVE")
SOMEBODY OUGHTTA TAKE IT TO TASK
AMATEUR NIGHT HYPE, 15 MINUTE FAME EPITAPHS
SEEM TO OVERSHADOW
THE LONG-WINDED BATTLE
BUT STILL, MY STATE OF MIND'S
LIKE I'M
(J DILLA'S VOICE: "ONE OF THE GREATEST ALIVE")

Check it out,
I can break down your style
in a matter of minutes
I don't fall for the corny gimmicks
I don't fall for the nonsense
"Throw your hands up" calls-n-responses
I'm appalled, man, y'all obnoxious!
So it must seem you're real hip hop
when you scream "REAL HIP HOP!"
Bitch, I'll knock you off your high horse
Biters bite biters,
but why they on the mic for?
Gigio must be a fuckin' eyesore to these cyborgs
'Cause I'm honest-to-God real
My monologues'll peel ya cap, but you poppin' off still
Flip the sickest style you'd never hear in a million years
but since the feeling's scarce, you wouldn't dare, like who really cares?
Crush dusty perceptions, Tap your sanity
Master the canopy while you fixed on a crash-n-burn calamity
Image over soul is like backwards humanity
Impostors rhymin' like they gotta black hearse fantasy

NO HIT 'ER QUIT 'ERS 'CAUSE THE BROTHA DON'T PLAY
I GET IT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, WHAT'D I SAY?
I DON'T QUIT IT, GET IT, DID I STUTTER?
TAKE IT WITH THE STRIDE
LIKE I'M

Track Name: livestock
Beats that knock hard that Adrian do
Comin' to a barn near you like the avian flu
Weak styles contrived as the daily news
Associated Fresh don't baby 'em, aliens break through
Doin' donuts or bustin' crop circles
Fox in the henhouse, givin' lil' chickies popsicles
Flatland funky brotha, Bad man undercover
With both my hands on ya' utters, motha fucka!
Dollars for the effort
Swingin' by my family jewels, better swallow up the treasure
Aw, whadda pleasure!
Very special gesture just to test ya
Good little sheep followin' the shepherd
Girl, we get that wool! Have that lamb spread
Damn near hatched an egg soon as she seen the ham's head
Cramp a tramp's legs complainin' that she can't stretch
Brand my name on that ass, get cash like Uncle Sam said
Tightened our plight from spot to spot
Mashin' on 'em like the cops hittin' drivebys on your block
Had her sick like, "It's been quite the ride, Pops!"
Likewise, twat! Now give me tail like fly swats
No jive talk! Chickens idolize cock
Let y'all swine eat slop on the nine-to-five clock
They took a dive and flopped
Light up my crops
Watch 'em stay alive to die like livestock
Track Name: Gorilla RMX
Yin & yang

Track Name: Hello, Gorilla! (Endangered Species)
Hello, gorilla!
What a beautiful day
Hey, I know it's unusual to say
Look in the mirror, that's you, homey!
They don't make 'em like they used ta',
threw away,
Do away with all the self hate
or any hate you have - period
I take this battlerap serious
Gigio, Say my name like John Jacobjingleheimersmith
Salaam alaikum, when you see me drivin' by like shiiiieet
What kinda drugs you on to make you think of rhymes like this?
In a time like this, I leave behind timelessness
And ain't shook by the Limbaughs and Imuses
I got my eyes on the poacher
Let me show ya
Done opened up the wrong can of eels
Won't stand still, Beat my chest like the Man of Steel
Ape Superhero, This my land right here
You can't have it, Let y'all hags bag banana peels

COULDN'T BE NO OTHER WAY
GORILLA!
WHEN I SEE YOU, THAT'S WHAT I'LL SAY
HEY!
YOU KNOW WE GOT OUR OWN THING
NOW LEMME SING
THAT'S THAT SHIT

Hello, Gorilla!
You already know though, kinfolk
Chimpanzees monkey around like life's a big joke
Bad decisions have 'em slippin' quicker than pistol smoke
Reality check, Take it to the chest like a big toke
Now let it go, brethren
Hip hop logic processed through the seven-o-seven
Fallin' outta my mouth like you oughtta hear it
Startle your spirit
Cause hysteria all throughout ya area
So who you knew deeper than the shrewd leader?
Rude speaker, No flaws or flukes truth seeker
Gorilla all balls on these puke eaters
Few believe him,
'till I grip my paws on the zookeeper
Better respect a beast
if you like your neck in one piece,
Mic wrecka unleashed
Radio station switch
Gorillas on the loose, It's a celebration, bitch!

COULDN'T BE NO OTHER WAY
GORILLA!
WHEN I SEE YOU, THAT'S WHAT I'LL SAY
HEY!
YOU KNOW WE GOT OUR OWN THING
NOW LEMME SING
THAT'S THAT SHIT

"beat change"

Hello, gorilla!
Hello, gorilla!

You know the deal
Shit is gettin' real
Things gotta change right about now
Rock willin' feelin' at the comeback hour
Fight the power contact high a little louder now
Rock willin' feelin' at the comeback hour
Fight the power contact high a little louder now

Pinned in the corner, Don't let 'em send for the coroner
Won't bend for the order which nearly skinned sons and daughters
before they were mothers and fathers,
friends and supporters
Still harness the pain tensely clenched in my corridors
like my elders remember when ten cents was a quarter
Crack the liberty bell when they knocked down the towers
Lock down the powers
Pimpin' ain't easy
Maintain a clear mindframe on the day-to-day greezy
like how I stay cool but my anger seethes beneath me
last of a dyin' breed, endangered species
And it's a new day for you and I
assumin' life is confined to this one try then it's do or die
Stay sharp, Winnin' ain't easy
Maintain a clear mindrame on the day-to-day greezy
like how I got love but my anger seems to drive me
Last of a dyin' breed, Endangered species

HELLO GORILLA!
HELLO GORILLA!
HELLO GORILLA!
HELLO GORILLA!
ROCK WILLIN' FEELIN' AT THE COMEBACK HOUR
FIGHT THE POWER CONTACT HIGH, A LITTLE LOUDER NOW!
Track Name: Funky As The Last
Couldn't tell you hip hop wasn't the holy spirit
that jumped in my soul took control and wrote these lyrics
And if you was too cold to go near it
then you wouldn't know the glow when my little brother Rolly hears it
But flowin' is only half the battle
Time traveler graspin' the past before he even casts his shadows
Couldn't decide if he was for or against
any sort of war before the walls closed in
Damn near collapsed tryna engineer the tracks
when a fly silhouette said, "Grab my hand, here, relax!"
Amazed me the way she snuck through the sector
Call me crazy, Coulda swore it was Ladybug Mekka
Remember like it was the day before yester
And the D.A.I.S.Y. AGE may fester, but I'm a 80's baby forever
So give me "3 Feet" because I'm "High & Rising"
Stealing beats from Dren Doh, like I gotta surprise him
Guess I'm only hard as my last joint
So I'll finish what I started, but first I'm sparkin' this last joint
Searchin for clarity deep in between my thoughts
Even when we barely conceived a descent beatbox

(ANDRE 3000:
"BABY BOY, YOU'RE ONLY FUNKY AS THE LAST CUT
YOU FOCUS ON THE PAST, YOUR ASS'LL BE A HAS WHAT?")
FLYIN' AT THE PACE I'VE LEARNED, I SAY, GOD'S SPEED
BUT I'LL FUNKY AS THE LAST ON THE DAY I'M FREED
THEN WILL I WASH MY HANDS OF MY WHOLE MEANING
AND ALL MY REASONS
'CAUSE I WON'T NEED 'EM
SINCE I'M FUNKY AS THE LAST

Easily figured the X-Factor would be Lauryn
missin' from my cypher, man, the setback nearly tore him
In hindsight, the warning was clear as the morning after
Another chapter, backed up, fillin' out some silly forms
But if I could have one special request
at my deathbed, let me stretch that last breath left
and bust a freestyle like it was a b-boy backspin
in stead of huggin' highschool like you'd get destroyed back then
But right now, I'm 21, and my music is the hustle
Winnin' & losin', whatever, whichever, the movement or the struggle
Every now and then, I probably could use a little trouble
But trust, I'm-a play the role soon as the Revolution bubbles
And that's something to quote me on
Yo, hopefully we'll go beyond
It's smokey but it won't be long
Trippin' on earth, like for some reason, I don't belong
here, It's not clear, but I have a feeling, I'm not the only one
Like whatever happened to Sean Bell?
Been a minute since I chilled on the lawn and watch the stars swell
And if your guard fell, I wouldn't attack
'Cause I know it's hard to adapt when there's no lookin' back


(ANDRE 3000:
