Out in the Streets

length: 3:55

Please allow me, please allow me
please allow to re-introduce myself
I'm gonna talk to the lord, ask him to be good to me,
make them chords cry for me,
you can ask about the french rap mogul that took the game by storm grossed
a couple of millions and got the f___ back home
they called me million dollar boy, i was 20 years old
they name me golden kid since i'm since i'm 11 years old,
after a milion albums sold they just callme K now
and i'm about to upgrade so i can triple my pay now
watch me as i pile up away from the stratus
i own everything i do under my ceo status
so understand that if you hear about mefor the first time
i am not at my first rhyme abd i am not at my first prime
and yes i'm far from my first crime, but i'm writing what i'm living
so if i'm new to you get out there and tell them
that i'm coming

the world is ... out in the streets

Rappers hate me, but business loves me
i took more from the game than the players wanted to give me
i'm an organized striker and i follow my flair
i banked a lot whether you like it or not you think that i care
in every venture i'm in, and every dollar i spend,
i'm hands on just to make sure i'll be a more powerful man,
get the money first right, then you'll do the talking
well that's exactly what i did, so let me do my walking
welcome to my world ladies and gentlemen this is history
the first ever french rapper that can switch it so fashionably
it's just that vibe that i'm in, maybe the style that i'm in,
might be the reason for all this love that i'm getting
and i will keep up the hustle for all these kids that are watching
that saw me coming from nowhere they can relate what they're singing
along the good things is that we're just getting started,
spread the world around you, the K mania departed

The world is ... out in the streets

Love It or Leave It (feat. Imposs)

length: 5:05
Yes!

What goes around, comes around.
What can make you, can break you.
What can make you, can break you.

Yeah! Aha-a-Aha-a... Yeah!

[Verse 1]

If there's no history, there's no fuel for the victory
A wise man told me: "Don't be a witness of your misery.
Call the shots for yourself. Make some moves for yourself
Don't try to be too cool, make some rules for yourself.
Play the game the way it's played but
Make sure you are at the right time at the right spot
Flip your money over like a gangster would do
But keep it strict legit. It's like a weapon to you.
Keep your head down grounded, look out for your people.
You don't want to walk alone but make sure they walk legal.
Stay out of trouble, you'll be rich like hell
Every wealth has to double, don't start with them grails
You're a man know! No longer a kid walkin' on the ground
If you wanna be like Trumph, you're gonna start right now!" That's exactly what he told me.
On November, 17th 1996 was the beginning of my dream.

Hey!

[Chorus] x2

That's my way of showing love to the game
It's about who I am, it's not all about the fame.
Hey!
That's my way of showing love to the game
Stand up! That's my kid. Love it or leave it, Love it or leave it.

[Verse 2]

When's the last time you ever see a dude like this
I moved my s___, get back to the crew I did.
Make stacks of a few ideas, that's who I is.
They can't do what I did, get-in.
So now I'm a post .... so they won't do what'ey did
You're gonna fail, don't do that kid!
Run from n____s that shoot between your eye-lids.
You see it in the news, but that's what I lis' (listen)

How dare you critisize when I pour my soul
How dare you critisize when I pour my pain
How dare you critisize when I pour champaigne
Cause even there, I'm gonna see what pork and pain
It's my game! f___ out of here, baby, it's my house!
You wan't me out. Smokin' some like Amy Whinehouse.
I'm like No-no.. No,I ain't goin' no-where!
You can't walk with me for sure, I'll put you on.

Hey!

[Chorus] x2

That's my way of showing love to the game
It's about who I am, it's not all about the fame.
Hey!
That's my way of showing love to the game
Stand up! That's my kid. Love it or leave it, Love it or leave it.

[Verse 3]

"Life will eat you, life will beat you,
Life will treat you like s___, put the heat on you
Your best bet when the time is hard, is take you one shot.
Stand straight flip it back on the bar.
And let them think you're weak now. It's all good!
They never cared about the weak, just starvin' in the hood
And let them think on whatever they wanna think
blink on whatever they wanna blink
But don't you lose your focus,
you're 'bout to win your strongest blink

For every loss, remeber, there's a victory
And every victory is a part of your dinesty
Loyalty to the game will serve you
Respect the one above you
but only show love to the ones who love you
That's the game - Love it or leave it.
A whole bunch of players, only a few can beat 'em"
That's exactly what he told me.
On November, 17th 1996 was the beginning of my dream.

Hey!

[Chorus] x2

That's my way of showing love to the game
It's about who I am, it's not all about the fame.
Hey!
That's my way of showing love to the game
Stand up! That's my kid. Love it or leave it, Love it or leave it.

you want to push it a little further that can always be thought
I don't know how much you like me but it better be a lot
cause you know I wanna take you way over the top
just like you were day dreaming far away from your block

all the respect that I owe you,
and we could be like we're supposed to be
the 08 bonnie and clyde like hov and B

and be the best that I could be so
you'll remember your way hey
I know you will enjoy your stay
today my plans are yours so I'm on my way hey

All Over Again

length: 3:39
It's been a while since you last talked to me
It's been a while
And suddenly you come to me again
What can it be?

Makes me think of all
All over again, all over again

You say it all, trying to make things right
But only for you
I wonder if you know how it makes me feel
Could you for once think of me?

'Cause you know this makes me think of all
All over again, all over again

I don't even know how to be ok again
All I ever wanted, for so long, was to hear you say it
But now I was better
I don't wanna fall again, again

Good Old Days

length: 3:54
somehow when time is hard you need to carry on
when you try but it feels like nothing's right
you got to keep on movin' on
i tell you lean on me like i could lean on you
you count on me like i can count on you
believe in your dreams so they believe in you too
cause this is all we can do

as far as i can remember, life was different man
sometimes i look back it feels like i'm a different man
trust me i prayed every day to survive
today i pay a 100K on a car that i don't even drive
i used to dream of the world seeing different countries
today i fly first class to rest under a palm tree
but it's still strange to me am i gonna fall back
the truth when you got nothing
is that you ain't scared of all that
you don't think about it you just dream about it
today if my suit ain't right you'll f___in' hear about it
but f___ it! it's my life and i'm not changing it
let's drink to every dream that i have
let's drink for making it
and this is what i'm about and this is who i am
i got my reasonable doubts i try the best i can
it took me a while to understand
but every time i held a mic in my hand
i did for the fans

somehow when time is hard you need to carry on
when you try but it feels like nothing's right
you got to keep on movin' on
i tell you lean on me like i could lean on you
you count on me like i can count on you
believe in your dreams so they believe in you too
cause this is all we can do

i did so many things i throught that i would never do
like playing for 15 thousand people in moscow
think we have some money here? they got some heavy money too
belles demoiselles et la bentley coupé au rendez vous
it is so crazy that i can't help looking back
i was a war child homie, can you imagine that
how you can change your life just like a game of poker
if you haven't seen the river yet the game is not over
i used to wait for time to pass by
now i can't run fast enough for it not to catch me by
so i'm gonna tell you one thing you better fight for your dreams
you never know, it might be even easier that it seems
and this is what i'm about and this is who i am
i got a reasonable doubts i try the best i can
it took me a while to understand
but every time i held a mic in my hand
i did for the fans

somehow when time is hard you need to carry on
when you try but it feels like nothing's right
you got to keep on movin' on
i tell you lean on me like i could lean on you
you count on me like i can count on you
believe in your dreams so they believe in you too
cause this is all we can do

Take It Slow

length: 3:32
Oh - Oh - Oh - Oh - Oh - L-l-l-le-let the beast start talkin'

I was the one for you, you were the one for me
Either it wasn't true and our love simply wasn't meant to be
Or did I misunderstand, did you say that I'm too demandin'
I had to hear it from one of your friends and that's where my love ended
Was I misunderstood or maybe baby my love was no good
I had to hear it from one of your friends and that's where my love ended

I loved you and no one else but you left me by myself cold and lonely, oh so lonely
Stood me up and let me down, then you took your love to town
Why you leave me - oh-oh - you know I loved you so
Why did you let me go-oh-hoh-woh
You know I loved you-ou so, why did you let me go-oh-hoh-oh

You never ever gave me no damn reason why we had shared true love for eight seasons
Then maybe again ain't no reason needed, the damage is done and both our hearts bleeded
Hurt she was, thought I was forgiven, I don't think you know how far you have driven me
'Cause when I really realised my love, found yourself a girl and then off you ran
You were my man, I thought at first hand and believe me I really did all I can
My heart overcame the hurt it was under, but still today my mind has to wonder

I loved you and no one else but you left me by myself cold and lonely, oh so lonely
Stood me up and let me down then you took your love to town
Why you leave me - oh-oh - you know I loved you so, why did you let me go-oh-hoh-woh
You know I loved you-ou so, why did you let me go-oh-hoh-oh

You never ever gave me one good reason why we had shared true love for eight seasons
Then maybe again ain't no reason needed, the damage is done and both hearts bleeded
Hurt she was, then all it took to be forgiven
I don't think you know how far you have driven me
'Cause when I really realised my love, found yourself a girl and then off you ran
You were my man, I thought at first hand and believe me I really did all I can
My heart survived the storm and the thunder, but still today my mind has to wonder (Ow)

I was the one for you, you were the one for me, (Ow)
Either it didn't do, or my feelin's were not played to
See, or was I misunderstood, (Ow) or maybe baby my love was no good
If that's the case I hope you found better, give my regards for I end this letter (Ow - Ow)

I loved you and no one else but you left me by myself cold and lonely, oh so lonely
Stood me up and let me down, then you took your love to town
Why you leave me, why you leave me-ee, love is reason, love is like the wind come and go
My mama warned me, so take it easy, take it nice and, take it slow-ow
(slow-ow, take it slow-ow), oh

I loved you and no one else, but you left me by myself cold and lonely, oh so lonely
Stood me up and let me down, then you took your love to town
Why you leave me - oh-woh - you know I loved you so, why did you let me go-oh-hoh-woh
You know I loved you-ou so, why did you let me go-oh-hoh-oh

(Oh) Wh-wh-wh-wh-wh-what a snare (Oh) take it slow - oh-oh-oh-oh
Wh-wh-wh-wh-wh-what a snare - take it slow (Oh) Wh-wha-wha-what a snare
What a snare-snare-snare

Not Your Time to Go

length: 3:46
my life could sound like a sad song
so let me take you back, a little short story long
i was born in a crazy country but beautiful indeed
the middle east miami, that special air that i breathe
a war zone yes, a hot zone yes,
beyrouth lebanon well known? no!
the spirit of a soldier, richies of a land
but too little to grab on for so many hands
so they fight and for a decade they fought again
i'm watching i'm a kid and god d___ i can't understand
i see the heroes dying, i see the soldiers crying
i prayed for better days but god was lying so
that's my reality i guess, i'm eleven years old and no futur a__ess
plus the fact that i'm a property of a war zine country
i've seen it all, they made a warrior out of me

wake up kid it's not your time to go...
wake up kid it's now the time to show
the whole world what you came for, go it's your payback (bis)

still so young but living like no tomorrow
like on a respirator, breathing on time you borrow,
seeking for a little piece, a glimpse of sunshine
gather the family and have some quality time,
and then january 1st 1991 war is over
daddy had enough, let's move over,
quickly we pack up, couple of dollars for back up
grabbed my little sister, kiss goodbye it's a wrap up
a new life, for me a new beginning,
i knew from there on there's no fights i won't be winning
and of course i'll be your ultimate hustler i was trained for
mentally be stronger beat the best and get paid for
the word is this kid is scared of nothing'
no matter what you showed me i've seen worse
the point is i wanna be a leader now
i was never scared to die, f___ you the world is mine

wake up kid it's not your time to go...
wake up kid it's now the time to show
the whole world what you came for, go it's your payback (bis)

now i never look back i'm just happy i made it
life owed me a favor i'm just happy she paid it
came from the bottom of bottom straight to the top of the top
now i'm enjoying every moment of it like if it was my last
now i never look back i'm just happy i made it
life owed me a favor i'm just happy she paid it
came from the bottom of bottom straight to the top
of the top let me sleep if i'm dreaming so they can't take me back

Celebration

length: 5:17
And it's a celebration
I ain't no drinker but this henny got me hella wasted
I spill some liquor for my *****s who ain't get to make it
Free all my *****s doing time locked up in them cages
I numb this pain with all these drugs so I be hella faded
I could've ran from all my problems but I chose to face em'
I use my pain and all my struggles as my motivation
I work so much I take no breaks I need whole a vacation
And I stay focused stay away from my lust and temptations
Unless you with me for long run we got no relations
I treat you like my own I treat you just like we related
I don't relate to none these *****s ain't no correlation
We had wic and ebt
Hittin liqs like easy e
Family sick like cdc
Every dolla' count like edc
No diplomas or no ged
Spin the block like dvd's
Give you all me on free ep's
She throw it back it back like tbt
You know what this means to me
This more than a dream to me
Girl You know I love it when you play my songs and sing to me
Never treat it like it's nothing baby this more than a thing to me
Never treat it like it's nothing baby this more than a thing to me
And It's a celebration
I ain't no drinker but this henny got me hella wasted
I spill some liquor for my *****s who ain't get to make it
Free all my *****s doing time locked up in them cages
I numb this pain with all these drugs so I be hella faded
I could've ran from all my problems but I chose to face em'
I use my pain and all my struggles as my motivation
I work so much I take no breaks I need whole a vacation
And It's a celebration
I ain't no drinker but this henny got me hella wasted
I spill some liquor for my *****s who ain't get to make it
Free all my *****s doing time locked up in them cages
And I stay focused stay away from my lust and temptations
Unless you with me for long run we got no relations
I treat you like my own I treat you just like we related
I don't relate to none these *****s ain't no correlation
I cut some some people off and then I started elevating
You chose to hate I chose to love that's why we separated
When you did me how you did me I was devastated
It went places where it should've never escalated
I found my peace when I found god and started meditating
And digging deep inside myself like working excavation
I told God that if I make it i'll pay my reparations
And send my daughter to off to school to get her education
And It's a celebration
I ain't no drinker but this henny got me hella wasted
I spill some liquor for my *****s who ain't get to make it
Free all my *****s doing time locked up in them cages
I numb this pain with all these drugs so I be hella faded
I could've ran my problems but I chose to face em'
I use my pain and all my struggles as my motivation
I work so much I take no breaks I need whole a vacation
