HOOK (Steph the Sapphic Songstress & Substantial) The music will take your breath away Come escape with us lets get away They said Hip-Hop was dead yesterday But we back at it And the sound is Jazzmatic! REPEAT HOOK VERSE (Substantial) This is the soundtrack for the everyday fellow Hella laid back, super smooth, way mellow No say hello To the crew at my left Marcus D on the beat, background, that's Steph Sound that fresh, Add a touch of Jazz Like Jazzy Jeff And it make suckers mad When we do our thing! It all blend perfectly Like Disaronno & Ginger we're certainly The flavor of the year Bangin' in your ear So much love ain't no room for haters over here Let me make t clear What our mission is Provide "chillaxtion" for our listeners And I hope you let us set the mood Just for you Get in groove The vibe is fresh Hot to death And it sound so good, hell, I'm impressed Man we ain't come here looking for comp to outdo Just want fans to know we can't do without you Ain't shit without y'all So we give it our all With a soundscape cooler than the middle of Fall When we jazz it up That's what's up I know you ain't had enough Who bad as us? Sounds so fabulous Back it up... Sounds so fabulous Yo let me wrap it up. Come on! HOOK BRIDGE (Steph) (Wake up) It's so fresh like rising to greet the morning's glow (Rise and shine, it's us) Marcus, Substan, and Steph in case you didn't know. Break from the norm and try this flavor for the palette of your ear. It's our year, and if that wasn't clear enough, try hearing us and know... HOOK

QN5 Music think different UVInk think different And of course elevation think different, And my man Tamashie think different You know the whole DMV think different And my fam in Japan think different All my folks everywhere think different Hand in the air if you still think different! Some live in the moment or whatever When I rhyme I strive to make these moments live forever If you really want something timeless Then you come and find us Otherwise you’re looking for minute made rhymers Don’t holla at your boy if you see what I’m saying You’d realize that you’re really speaking to a man ‘Cause we are not the same, I’m not childish I’m here to make music, y’all rather be stylish I’m a hip-hop artist, you’re a stylist When I rhyme I choose to use my 3rd iris All you fools use is jewels and pure violence Tell’em spit the truth to youth they choose silence You’re so dead wrong and I live right Y’all keep us in the dark but I give light But this might prove to be useful And help a little youngin’ do whatever they choose to One love to all my real listeners I do what I feel and I still think different Don’t be fool by the cool, don’t bend to the trends Just stay true to you ‘til the end my friends REPEAT HOOK And choose the road less taken Or where your soul is could be a whole left vacant I make music to feel the void Some miss the point and tell me kill the noise But I’m here to spread love you want to steal my joy You known to fake moves, I’m the real McCoy You still a toy, I’m a writer of rhymes Plus an innovator, others bite the design You mimic what you see but I act like me I’m proud pop, you’re an absentee Y’all the same folks that used to laugh at me Now you wishing you were down with the faculty We don’t make excuses, we’re making movements The music made you but I make the music Some think I’m foolish ‘cause I chase my dreams but I got to It would only be foolish not to HOOK I don’t front I just walk a lot While you bamas like to stunt, plus you talk a lot I’m here to change the world, you let the world change you I can do anything you dwell on what you can’t do And I hear hater yap but you take it as fact I refuse to be defined by a lame like that I’m nobody’s flunky, I’m a grown man No jewelry that’s chunky, rather own land Can’t succeed if you have no plan Kinda like having a beach with no sad I’m sure you remain uncertain While you stunt all day I’m workin’ You represent nonsense I’m all about progress Funny how they act like it’s bad to be conscious Stop it How can you sleep in these times I open minds and eyes to the beat with these rhymes ya’know HOOK
