about

I've named this ep Khalyil cause its an introduction to who i am, and there's no better way to introduce yourself then with your name! lol...every song has a different feel and even a different genres and that's just a reflection of who i am as a person i don't believe there's ONE way to live I like different kinds of music so i decided to express that with this project
This ep was a long time in the making and couldn't have been what it is without the help of my uncle Marlon Long.

hope you enjoy listening to it!

Track Name: Relate
I said im young im numb
im being ignored like
what am I here for
like what am I here for x2

Now tell the truth kids
you ever wake up in the morning feeling useless
truth is i do
i aint gone lie
ever think about your life and just wonder why?
ever think about your life and just wanna cry
pass your time you get liquored and high
someone says wuddup
you sit there and lie?
like "I'm cool I'm good I'm really straight"
but not one thing in your life really ever feels great
i can relate
cause real recognize real
fake recognize steal
hungry men recognize meals
i represent when you had sleep for supper
alarm clock,that was your stomach grumbling
every day you wondering
god have i paid my dues
school work and ball in the same shoes
if you from where I'm from i know you follow me
I'm talking when you rocked shoes like annually

I said im young im numb
im being ignored like
what am I here for
like what am I here for x2


Now am i really like you?
i see you wonder
i too knows how it feels
to sleep off hunger
i know how to be poor
and look rich the cafe wanting more
like your Oliver twist
so yes that stress i felt it
none the less i just dealt with it
theres other ways out
then slitting your wrist
you gotta be the pimp when life is a bitch
cause who knows you might get rich
depending how you look at it
some sell drugs
other turn crack addict
some buss guns
others catch it in they dome
this tracks just to let you know
your now alone
i felt what you felt and said what you said
and when times got rough
i bled like you bled
i know i might come off as a little depressing
but usher aint the only one with confessions

I said im young im numb
im being ignored like
what am I here for
like what am I here for x2


BRIDGE(marlon long):I'm young all by myself alone
i don't know what's wrong
but i know im strong
Im young all by myself alone
i don't know what's wrong
but i know im strong

I said im young im numb
im being ignored like
what am I here for
like what am I here for x2
Track Name: ZONE
I'm in my zone

And you can't
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
My zone!

I'm in the zone like the highlights
The zone like the twilight
Im zoning like 2-3
Bowen Brucie
Bruce tryna save my city
from these jokers
duffle bag boys
I'm my player circle
I'm not commercial
I just sell we'll
girls just like me
Like I'm LL
I just prevail
The rest are like snails
So slow
Fcking with a nigga like solo
That's a no no
And I told y'all from the front door
I don't play dough
I make dough
I don't rate those
That try to oppose me
I'm only 24 running game like I'm Kobe
And shorty right there just dying to know me
We'll hey am hey ma
Nice to meet ya
She wanna be the queen
Like she's name Sheba

I'm in my zone
and you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
My zone!

I got that Hennessy in my system
Stunner shades on.
Piff is up in the air
I'm in my zone
I'm in my zone
In a room full of peers
See a hater there
But who the hell cares
Tell him fall back
Fall way way back
Naw hater further than that!
You make me laugh
Let's keep it real
The boy stay bad like laventille
We can chill we can lime
Girl your fine
What's your sign
Perfect tim-ing
Is what I got
And this is it
Baby girl one shot
Tell a hater what what
Tell him leave you alone
Just stay there up in your zone
I'm gone

I'm in my zone
and you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
My zone!

I got that Hennessy in my system
Stunner shades on.
Piff is up in the air
I'm in my zone
I'm in my zone
im in my zone
im in my
im in my
zone zone
(zone breakdown)

I'm in my zone
and you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't stop me
I tell these haters get up off me
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
And you can't
I'm in my zone
My zone!
Track Name: Warrior
Rasul: Tell them I was
Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures
Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures

Its funny how money cause the downfall of nations
try to speak out and its defamation
incarceration, you the victim
that's why I said fck it and bang on the system
the first thing i did is squash my beefs
cause I realize now real wars with the beast
holding court in these streets
but they way to big
so i cant beef with them and beef with some kid
that wanna split my wig
i’ll easily split his
but that's really what they want a real life time bid
so tell you the truth
Im doing this for the youth
and my real podium is the booth
this system got us fcked up
you can see them laughing
all we really need now
is a new Fred Hampton
Bet they all stop laughing
don't sh*t be funny
imagine Huey P
had 50’s money
now lets rise

Rasul: Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures
Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures


Rasul: National heroes we are rising up as one
Giving thanks and praise
With the fire blazing up as one
What dem a go do this a the rise of Jah sun
Say revolution ina dis gideon
Tell em say afta babylon come let we sluu dem
When them see the powers tell me
What shall we do then
Here comes the war come make then this thing start then
When the fire blaze from the tribes of the north then

Rasul: Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures
Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures


My people gone rise
when we realize we pumped full of lies
the times aint changed
we still all in slavery
except now a days your chainz is more glittery
pour out a little Henny for my n*ggas that ain't living no more
bad circumstances have them under your floor
spit it pure like acid
this to anyone that's ever done anything drastic
to fight for the truth
to anyone that ever thought the youths bout they roots
Malcolm X living proof
taught you to
get your things by any means
and Martin let you know about his dream
now we can all see past the arisen
i can feel it in the air my people
will rise up
once we open our eyes and see things clear
there's no easy walk to freedom anywhere
lets rise

Rasul: Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures
Born as a soldier raised as a warrior
defenders of Jah laws and orders
hail king alpha
praise mama miga
righteousness in a meh daily procedures

Track Name: Mary
See I first met Mary
It was safe to say
It was back in the day
When her father use to force her to play
And the coward would say
"Mary this our little secret
you'll be a bad girl if you can't keep it"
So Mary kept it, locked up in her vault
She thought if mommy left daddy
that would be her fault
Wasn't her fault,
see what would you do?
Who hurt you the most
Protected you too
See Mary shes so confused
She's so misused, so abused
Tell you the truth
It went on for too many years
She shed too many tears
Too many nightmares
Mary felt like no one out there cared
No one out there would hear
I mean her pops was a cop
So can you tell me, how's it supposed to stop?
Can't you see the irony
Plus the fact that Mary was so pretty
Physically but mentally she was broken
Emotionally she was open like..

(Chorus)
Oh Mary watch what you're doing
You don't want to make no sudden movements
Truth is, life's to precious Mary hold on
I know you want to give up
But Mary stay strong
come on X 2

She was the envy of a lot of girls in school
So Mary liked to walk and talk and act like she was cool
A simple compensation
For the way that she was feeling
Mary thought too many times 'bout leaving
This place, not school talking the face of the earth
I mean she thought she was cursed since birth
And the worst is
She once tried religion and once tried psychology
Either way she couldn't really ever
Shake that feeling, see
You can't imaging or vision
Aborting your sibling
I know you thinking
Hey this kinda disgusting man
Mary's mother she didn't do nothing man
That's just it that
You need to understand
Mary's mother she just didn't know
worked all night
and went straight to sleep when shes home
left Mary alone with the man she loved and she trusts
man she never knew what was up
got'dam!

CHORUS
Oh Mary watch what you're doing
You don't want to make no sudden movements
Truth is, life's to precious Mary hold on
I know you want to give up
But Mary stay strong
come on! X 2

Let me tell you quickly how the story is done
Mary turned into jenny when she
found his hidden gun
'every cop has one
Its somewhere in their closet
Mary told herself she wouldn't stop until she found it
And when she found it she held it
In her hand, told herself "this is it"
And then Mary ran
Cross the cold kitchen floor to her room
Cause she knew he was coming home soon
Ready to end it gun to her head
Tired of pretending
About to pull the trigger
'till the noise in the kitchen
had her trippin so she dropped
Like she was sleeping
And at the same time he started creeping
She laid there and listened
as the door opened cracks creeked
That's when he came in and he gave his speech
Like "Mary if you tell then you're being a bad girl"
Mary just laid
With her hand on the handle
He took a step closer
Leaned over, put his hand on her shoulder
Mary turned over, took the gun out the holster
And said
"If u touch me again I swear that you dead"
Mary wasn't playing put it straight to his head
and then..

*(Chorus) Oh Mary watch what you're doing
You don't want to make no sudden movements

Truth is
He was trained for theses types of situations
Knocked the gun right out her hand
With no type of hesitation
shit! Gun hits the floor, tussle for a minute
Gun slides to the door
He screams out
"you whore this 'gon be a lot worst than before"
From the bed they go straight to the floor
And with his Breaths full of alcohol
Hands on her wrists
he whispers in her ears
Tells her "Mary you'gon like this"
Then (click! Gun Shot!)
the room sits emotionless
Mary's eyes closed
both hands still on her wrist
and once they opened, with tears in her eyes
she seen her father there
just slumped to the side
to her surprise she stares at the doorway
and lucky for her
her mother finished work early

(Chorus)
Oh Mary watch what you're doing
You don't want to make no sudden movements
Truth is, life's to precious Mary hold on
I know you want to give up
But Mary stay strong
come on X 2

Track Name: Definition
The definition of Khalyil
A great friend
My definitions
A great man
See I can withstand
Damn near anything
Been in too many things
Shot at, at close range
Moms is a preacher
Pops sold them thangs
Fucked around
start smoking thangs
That was so damaging
Too My young brain
yeah my young frame
I wasn't eating
Seen moma reaching
With no finances
Took a chance moved us to the sticks
Couldn't afford it
A few years later we got evicted
I lied and told my friends I couldn't kick it
had to move
I figured ain't no money
But I had my pride to lose
And then we moved right
To the west side
The sh*t my moms feared most
happened in front her eyes
Thats B and E's robberies every time there's beef
I'm front-line
Shout outs to my Brotha C
But now I'm different
Now I'm that voice that speaks
That voice that teach
That voice that reach out
To my community contact
Front page all black
all that for the youth
I'm out the booth like superman
Kal-El, Khalyil with the fuel of Khalid in me
Martins philosophies Malcolm X
Of Montreal any means I will ball
Not cause I want to
I'm suppose to
Common y'all
Keep hearing I get better and better
got me thinking to myself like I better
If not then stop...

Or flop like dem hoop dreams
Things ain't what seam
Like ripped jeans
When it comes to this industry
N*gga Can't you see, am
Turning super saiyan
Feel it in your soul
Something like a seance
You should just remain calm
I'm a sniper on the roof
Waiting to take my shot
I think it's time that I shoot
Cause I'm running out of patience
Like Mj's doctor
Man ill hit you from a distance
You can ask who shot ya
See that flow Big poppa
And im tryna do it big
I do it for my city man my mutha fcking kids
Yeah The ones that ain't born yet
Swear to god I promise
Pharoah, Jen, Jeena, Marcus
Tru kings we gotta make it
They can't defined me
They can't deny me
I got them kinda bars that'll make the blind see
And that's real naw nigga that's Khalyil
I got more will than uncle Phil and that's the deal
said that real
naw nigga that's Khalyil i got more will then uncle Phil
and that's real and that's real...
