The Remedy 03:44
[Intro: Amerigo Gazaway] Patient: Yo, what happened man? Ughh my head…what is this place? Doctor: Shhh, just relax. We found you passed out on the beach. Yo you shouldn’t be moving too much, just take two these… [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] If good music for the soul is what you’re tryin’ to find To ease the stress from the grind when it’s time to unwind  Then look no further, ‘cause we just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning take two of these  And if you’re having withdrawals from music addiction  All you have to do is call and we can fill your prescription  No symptoms, ‘cause we got just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning rinse and repeat  [Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Check…always coming correct  While most these so called rappers just mumblin’ under their breath  See you are now in the presence of one of the best  A lot was sacrificed to get here but we mustn’t forget  Behind the scenes y’all don’t see all the blood and the sweat  Back in the day I used to dream about what could be next Gettin daps like ‘thanks for the wonderful set’ Collaborating with with artists that I love respect Never thought that hip-hop could take it this far  They thought I’d never make it but I’m headed straight for the stars  This shit is hard af, you can feel the bass in your car  No time to waste, seize the day and don’t wait for tomorrow  Life is hard but we stay strong, never gettin discouraged You can do anything want, all it takes is some courage I put it all on the line, every time time that I rhyme for all the fans who stand line, with the vinyl to sign  [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] If good music for the soul is what you’re tryin’ to find To ease the stress from the grind when it’s time to unwind  Then look no further, ‘cause we just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning take two of these  And if you’re having withdrawals from music addiction  All you have to do is call and we can fill your prescription  No symptoms, ‘cause we got just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning rinse and repeat  [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] They to never get high on your own supply  But if music is a drug, well then I’m your guy  I got bars plus beats instrumentals for days  Name your own price, I might as well just give it away  Triple threat, on microphone I’m ‘lit’ as they say I mean ‘lit’ as in I’m literally killin’ the game Rap is lame, I’m amazed at how little they say Or how much good music out and how little they play  But at the end of day, we keep holdin’ the torch  And pass it on like Obi-Wan Kenobi, the force  Is strong with you young padawon, keep holdin’ the fort  And maybe you could see your name in Rolling Stones or The Source  Visualize your goals, always try to stay on course  And don’t get distracted by the fact that they on tour  Just keep pushin’, stay in the lab honing your craft  Hit me back when you’ve done that, and I’ll show you the path  [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] If good music for the soul is what you’re tryin’ to find To ease the stress from the grind when it’s time to unwind  Then look no further, ‘cause we just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning take two of these  And if you’re having withdrawals from music addiction  All you have to do is call and we can fill your prescription  No symptoms, ‘cause we got just what you need  Doctors orders, call me in the morning rinse and repeat

Right Here 03:44
[Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From New York to France, peace to all of our fans  Y’all It’s time to get ya back up off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From Brazil to Japan, peace to all of our fans  Y’all it’s time to get ya back off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance [Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] And it sounds so nice, hip-hop you the love of my life  You see me and the mic? Yeah we sorta like husband and wife  I can’t let her go, even though we fuss and we fight  I still love H.E.R., still get rush when I write  Some hot shit that the party people love to recite  You see a lot folks is tight but they ain’t hustlin’ right If you need to you can always hit me up for advice  It’s all love, wish I could dap all y’all up And when we hit the top, Im just tryin’ to be the guy That y’all call up, ‘cause you never know where you might be  In five years, if you want to you could be like me  You could be the the next Dilla or the next Spike Lee,  People move around, this game is like chess times three So treat others with respect instead of taking advantage  And be grateful for what you have, never take it for granted  This is uncut, behind the scenes, ‘Making The Band’ shit Keep it banging in your headphones while you taking the tram and this is for the hardcore fans, markers in hand  Because without y’all I probably wouldn’t be where I am  I’m right here [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From New York to France, peace to all of our fans  Y’all It’s time to get ya back up off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From Croatia to Japan, peace to all of our fans  Y’all it’s time to get ya back off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] It’s funny how things can can switch up, just like that  Show up to the party folks like ‘why you dressed that?’ Won’t accept the real you, and they just fight back  See someone jumpin’ off a bridge and say ‘let’s try that!’ You see a lot people too scared to be who they are  But that type of mentality it you won’t get you very far  We gotta embrace the things that make us unique  And I’m a stay true to myself  until my days are complete I’m just a kid who played games, started making some beats Never thought that it would ever end up paying a fee Started writing my own rhymes out of necessity But then. my friends they would bring out the best in me My favorite rapper used to say ‘check out my melody’ Now I’m up on stage they think I’m a celebrity And I may not exactly be a household name  But I can say this straight face without no shame I don’t do it for the fame nor at all for the gram  At the end of the day y’all I do it all for my fam  This for the die-hard fans, Sharpies in hand  Because without y’all I probably wouldn’t be where I am  I’m right here [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From New York to France, peace to all of our fans  Y’all It’s time to get ya back up off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance I’m right here, I got the world in the palm of my hands  From Brazil to Japan, peace to all of our fans  Y’all it’s time to get ya back off the wall and just dance  And If you trying to book a show you better call in advance I’m right here

[Intro: Amerigo Gazaway] Radical Dreamers Won’t be satisfied ’til everybody knows our name We some Radical Dreamers Radical Dreamers [Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] I used to stay up late at night playing RPGs Or browsing LimeWire, downloading MP3s Started making mixtapes, and burned cds In hopes thaT one day Dr. Dre would say he ‘heard my beats’ Just a kid with big dreams and a USB Now I’m giving talks MOPOP and USC  Never thought someday I would be an emcee Or linkin’ up with the homie DJ DN³ Making music that’ll bump for a thousand years  But watch out, because this game is like a house of mirrors One day you sitting on top, without a care  The next minute, you feel like you falling down the stairs  Lose your balance, and then land flat your face  Gotta brush your shoulders off and get back in the race  The clock’s tickin’, but I’m a do whatever it takes  To get mine and leave a mark that y’all can never erase  Leave a legacy that no man could ever replace  I know they want it on demand but but it’s better to wait I know you got bigger plans but it’s never too late  I’ll meet you in the other side I hear the weather is great Keep a regular pace but try not to burn out And don’t spend too much time stressing  if the crowd will turn out  Because you know we got the hot shit without any doubt  So pay attention the words coming out of my mouth because [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway]  This is for the G’s, and this is for the hustlers  Fists in the air, still standing up for justice  It isn’t all for nothin, we do it because we love it  This music is my life and I put nothin’ above it  Yo, this is for the hustlers and this is for the G’s The gamers, the artists and everyone in between The DJs, promoters and everyone in the scene Keep doing your thing, don’t ever give up on your dream  [Verse 2: Mega Ran] I used to write verses about never signing a deal But when you’re offered what you’ve never had, how does it feel? I can tell you, being in the FedEx, with pen in hand Thinking the day would never come, formulating a plan On how to change the world with a mic and a concept They had never seen, that might clear the room like a bomb threat Remembering the days when all that mattered was Tapes on Tuesday, Now it’s new J’s in a suitcase City to city to rhyme for anybody that’ll listen Jake & Elwood on a mission Single player campaign, ’til I linked with DN³ Switch to co-op, we blow spots, Business never personal Erick and Parrish Holy matrimony and I cherish the marriage Tightrope the line with precarious balance Now I’m linking with Amerigo and sharing your talents My Obsidian blade be spittin’ the stage Leave the kiddies amazed, when he boy skill is displayed The lyrics you crave, shining you can give him a praise Whipped into shape, like children who didn't behave Now I been at it since Captain Gloval took control of the SDF Back when the top shows were Golden Girls and Empty Nests Ten years plus, believe me I got plenty left Ran going in like carts do on an NES [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway]  This is for the G’s, and this is for the hustlers  Fists in the air, still standing up for justice  It isn’t all for nothin, we do it because we love it  This music is my life and I put nothin’ above it  Yo, this is for the hustlers and this is for the G’s The gamers, the artists and everyone in between The DJs, promoters and everyone in the scene Keep doing your thing, don’t ever give up on your dream

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Power to the people y’all because it all starts with us But I know sometimes people can be hard to trust Smile in your face but then they be actin’ sus Friends can stab you in the back and that can cut  Deeper than any wound or any weapon you name And when something like that happens, things are never the same  I’ve seen family members turned to enemies in a day For the love of money people do unspeakable things  But it all starts with us, that why we gotta protect One another and treat each other with some kinda respect  See you can try forgive and try to forget  Or hold on to all your grudges and die with regrets Its your choice but sometimes you just gotta accept  They’ll never change no matter how hard you try to correct But don’t let it affect your mental peace or state of mind Only way to survive, living in these crazy times [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] Yo this beat is on fire bout to spark it up Two sides to every coin I’m bout toss it up I know that sometimes people can be hard to trust  But yo we gotta stick together ‘cause it starts with us  If you got something to discuss well then cough it up Signals getting crossed because we don’t talk enough All men created equal, in God we trust Power to the people ya’ll because it starts with us [Verse 2” Amerigo Gazaway] See I’m already hip, to all the games that they play Sheisty things people do and the things that they say Ay yo this place is an amazing display of sheer ignorance its weird isn’t it this fear driven culture that were livin’ in? ‘Cause at first it appears innocent, But really kid, you could get stuck for a merc’d a mere dividend They say its all about the Benjamins but I bet if Benjamin were here he wouldn't be down with how were spendin’ him It’s outrageous, ain’t it pitiful how they just Talk behind our backs but then smile in our faces Like its all gravy, I’m like…is y’all crazy? I just rocked a show I ain’t leavin’ till ya'll pay me Try to play me like a vinyl record And break me down with all their bullshit and hate but wait I ain’t affected by all that See I am the essence of raw rap A lot of emcees wanna test but they best to just fall back [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] Yo this beat is on fire bout to spark it up Two sides to every coin I’m bout toss it up I know that sometimes people can be hard to trust  But yo we gotta stick together ‘cause it starts with us  If you got something to discuss well then cough it up Signals getting crossed because we don’t talk enough All men created equal, in God we trust Power to the people ya’ll because it starts with us

[Intro: Amerigo Gazaway] Yo you ever stop and think? What if there was a whole ‘nother world out there A world where anything is possible Imagine that, what would you do? [Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] I don’t talk much, silent protagonist  But don’t don’t get it twisted, steppin’ to me could be hazardous Woke up on a shore of dreams, I guess that was the catalyst Now I’m on a mission with a whole new set of challenges Active time battling, yo we time travellin’ Yasunori Mitsuda in the trunk rattlin’  Slaying Komodo Dragons like these beasts ain’t shit  Til I met a group of bandits and a thief named Kid  She was kinda feisty, a little rough around the edges But the way that she could fight? It was like the stuff of legend  Quite impressive, always keepin‘ em guessin’ She was on a quest to find Lynx and teach him a lesson  And so we join forces then it’s off to the races To discover new worlds and explore new places Won’t be satisfied ’til everybody knows our name Radical Dreamers, we came to steal the Frozen Flame [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] What would you do? If you discovered that the world was split it two? What would you do? Would you accept you got fate or run from the truth? What would you do? I you discovered that there was another you? What would you do? If you had to walk a mile in somebody else’s shoes? [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] We some radical dreamers  Got it all mapped out, mathematical schemers ‘Bout to sneak in Viper Manor while Lynx is sleepin’ And steal the Frozen Flame, at least that’s what we was thinkin’  you know it’s funny how history just keeps repeatin’ To solve a mystery sometimes it takes leaps of reason Snuck in the back door now we searchin’ for clues Got a bone to pick with Lynx, and it’s personal too Radical Dreamers, don’t act like you ain’t heard of my crew  Imagine if somewhere there was a different version of you  What would you do? If you ever crossed paths  Would the universe collapse? Have you ever thought that? Now we getting off track, let’s get back to the plot Put the pieces back together start connecting the dots ‘Bout to refresh your memories in case you forgot It much more than pixel graphics and some text in a box  It’s that feeling that you get when you  just bested the boss Watching the numbers level up like I invested in stocks Press pause, gotta take out the trash Plus when got back, Moms had made me a snack  Wash down with some Kool-Aid then it’s back to the game  That’s when Kid start to notice Serge was acting real strange Won’t be satisfied ’til everybody knows our name  Radical Dreamers, we came to steal the Frozen Flame  [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] What would you do? If you discovered that the world was split it two? What would you do? Would you accept you got fate or run from the truth? What would you do? I you discovered that there was another you? What would you do? If you had to walk a mile in somebody else’s shoes?

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] I wish I had an airship so I could take flight  Wish I could travel back in time, if I could I’d make everything right  Used to stay up playing games almost every night  Skies the limit yeah we can go wherever we like A lot of loose ends that still gotta address Tryna figure out how exactly I got in this mess It all started with a girl I was trying to impress  To be honest, I thought it was just a side quest  But when our eyes met, I knew it was something more  ‘Bout to explore places that I’ve never gone before From Croatia to the Bay, all the way back to the ‘Ville From NYC all the down to Brazil  If I had an airship then I’d come scoop you up  First class plus you know I got the system souped-up We can watch the sunrise from a tropical island   We can go anywhere, just go talk to the pilot  We can transcend time and travel to new places Im leavin’, so pack up your bags and your suitcases  Come and take a ride with me in my new spaceship  Better buckle up and tie up your shoelaces ‘cause [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] There’s so much out there to explore And we can go places that we’ve never gone before  There’s no way to know just what’s in store And I hope you find what is is look for  [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] I wish I had a submarine so I could go to the depths of the ocean  You know me and DN³ ‘bout to set things in motion   Life is full of ups and downs just like a rollercoaster Sold out shows on our way to Nova Scotia Sittin’ backstage with my feet up on the sofa Walkin’ down the street see my name up on the poster  Adriatic coasting, ‘bout to take a dip  It’s legit, hit me up if wanna take a trip  We can go scuba diving on tropical islands  And explore lost ships that were sunken by pirates   We can travel cross seas in search of old relics Who knows, what the universe holds there’s no tellin’ We can go to new planets, and other dimensions And discover strange worlds beyond our comprehension  In the ’77 Benz, that yellow submarine  Ain’t no limits it can take anywhere you wanna be ‘cause [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] There’s so much out there to explore And we can go places that we’ve never gone before  There’s no way to know just what’s in store And I hope you find what is is look for  [Outro: Amerigo Gazaway] There’s so much out there to explore (8x)

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Once upon a time I knew this guy named Chrono, real spiky hair He was from the 90's, and wore Nike Airs One day he woke up and he headed to the street fair Leene Square, little did he know who he would meet there Marle, she was descendent of a princess She dropped her pendent, when he picked it up he caught her interest Meanwhile, this girl name Lucca His next door neighbor, her favorite gun - bazooka Was workin on some kind of transportation device I should have know better than to go and take her advice But yo, she asked for a couple of volunteers Marle steps up, and she magically disappears Into thin air, or maybe a black hole If i don't go after her, I'ma look like an asshole So, I step up to the platform and press the button I don't know where I'm headed, but f*ck it here goes nothin' [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] I look around, now I'm somewhere in the Middle Ages And when I fight my time is measured by these little gauges I made it through the forest, now I'm at the castle gates but then I get ambushed by the guards, isn't that just great? I gotta find a way, up out of this mess I'm on trial for kidnapping the princess Told you I was clean, what you want me to take a piss test? I wish that I could hear what they're saying, but it's just text So, now I'm locked up...man f*ck that I'm breakin' out of here its time to get my stuff back I look around and find a hole in the wall Climbing up the side of the castle, man I hope I don't fall Then get confronted by the Chancellor - no Warhol Now where's my sword, I'm gettin' kinda bored ya'll I hear a "roar" as he heads for the door Turn around to face the dragon hope you're ready for war I'm time travellin' [Verse 3: Amerigo Gazaway] So we defeat the dragon and then try to escape Get chased through the forest then we end up finding a gate No time to waste, I'm bout to transcend time and space Activate the portal, disappear without a trace Yo, next thing you know - we chillin in a strange dome Used to play this game every day when I came home Its kinda cold but I figure I'll take my chances So I set set off on my journey hoping maybe I can find some answers Then Lucca discovers this videotape Of how he world ends and suffers from a grizzly fate Damn I guess we're a just little bit late But wait, look at the date, Theres still a chance that it could have been saved Met this robot, who said he wanted to roll Because none of the other robots had a heart or a soul Its time to save the planet, yeah that's part of the goal Everyday after school, man you already know I'm time travellin'
