Track Name: On The Rise ft. Coleman Hell
Verse 1
My flow better, even in stormy weather
We like smoke oh, we can get higher together
Lightin up the city like the 4th of July
I’m like a firework paintin colours straight in the sky

I’m different, on a mission, still lane switchin
New page a new beginning Charlie Sheen we stay winning
Like Hov for the Brook’ I keep T. Dot up on my shoulder
The pressures on but I am ready I’m more older

Hey, Big Brother, tell me, Big Brother
Do you know, do you know that I’m the second comin?
Ah, these flows colder than a winter wind
Stretch and La+ch up on the track now let the story begin

Chorus
I’m on the rise, knowin that I got just what it takes to survive
I’m on the rise, feelin that I’m breathin man I know I’m alive
I’m on the rise, putting in this work we’ll make it out this 9 to 5
On the rise, feelin my heart beatin man I know I’m alive, rise

Bridge 1
Can you feel the greatness inside of me?
I show you my feelings heart on my sleeve
Got my girl beside me she down to ride
Keep it real forever stay by my side

Verse 2
N*ggas ain’t got facts enough to tell me I ain’t strapped enough to rhyme
I’m like a young Martin in his prime
Optimus you wanna take shots at us
Your insults like bullets but you see I be stopping ‘em

See I don’t need a tech to fire back, back, livewire
My eyes will see platinum before I retire
To my batcave, Dark Knight, Bruce Wayne
See the way I outrhyme these Bains is insane

Got the game in my pocket n*gga
These b*tches playin, thinkin I’m talkin about my rocket n*gga
And if this game is a punchin bag, punchin bag
I’m about to sock it, Lennox Lewis to these new kids, Zen like a Buddhist

MB, man you foolish with the flow
All Eyez On Me, like Makaveli, no tats across the belly
I’m scheming with mine until the very end
Stretch and La+ch up on the track now let the story begin

Chorus
I’m on the rise, knowin that I got just what it takes to survive
I’m on the rise, feelin that I’m breathin man I know I’m alive
I’m on the rise, putting in this work we’ll make it out this 9 to 5
On the rise, feelin my heart beatin man I know I’m alive

Yeah we in the building, our hands are to the ceiling
We celebrate, we celebrate , we celebrate, mmmm
Good Lord what a feelin’, our hands are to the ceiling
We celebrate, we celebrate , we celebrate, mmmm

Bridge 2
I can feel the rush
Like I can touch the sky, if I try, if I try yeah
I can feel the rush
Like I can touch the sky, if I try, if I try yeah

Chorus
Knowin that I got just what it takes to survive
I’m on the rise, feelin that I’m breathin man I know I’m alive
I’m on the rise, putting in this work we’ll make it out this 9 to 5
On the rise, feelin my heart beatin man I know I’m alive

Coleman:

Ey yo we on the rise, ey yo we are dem guys
I’m just lookin for a way to make my starship fly high
Jean Luc Picard, and my crew bout to blow up like a nuclear bomb BOOM (yeah)

Explosion, too cool for school, expulsion
It’s Coleman, and Mr. Brathwaite, it’s Billy Bathgate leave ‘em in the backlane
Blaow! How you like me now? I won’t stop till my wrist worth ninety thousand
Yeah, and I can see the horizon, I got my people behind me Verizon

And we’re risin, to the t-t-top and we not goan stop
Till I am eye level with you fools
You better listen right now here’s the rule don’t f*ck with me, ah
Track Name: Rain
Verse 1
I love you, you know that
We shoppin, get cash back
My racks up, I spend that
I got skills, they gift wrapped

I'm sick with the flow, man this ain't difficult
We on tour you know we got posters and shows
And night after night we go all 'round the globe
We grindin' so hard boy we fight and we fight

I'm nice but don't push me, a sick MC boy you'll see
I get it done just how it's supposed to be
I put it down for those that's close to me

I'm wicked, doin devil's tricks they callin me da villain
I'm ridin for my people there ain't much time for chillin
Now look at us we in position, to change the game man forever winnin

Chorus
We makin it rain
We makin it rain, it rain, it rain
We makin it rain, we makin it rain, yeah (X2)

Verse 2
Two spades I'm all in my cash up I'm ballin
You feel me you callin, I feel like I'm fallin
But I put up that front cuz I don't want be hurt
But I'm strong enough to go hard for you cuz I still put you first

Baby I'm on my grind tryna overshine get my cake up and my weight up
At the end of the day I wanna make stacks cuz like Big Sean I stayed up
Now look at us we in position, to chage the game man forever winnin

Chorus
We makin it rain
We makin it rain, it rain, it rain
We makin it rain, we makin it rain, yeah (X2)

Verse 3
Don't fight with me when I call you
Don't get mad at me it won't fall through
Man I look at you in the eyes and your beauty paralyze me, your beauty paralyze me

I'm here boo, you know where to find me
We out here in the world I can see our stars is risin'
Now look at us we in position, when two become one you can see my vision

I've seen some highs and lows now I ain't too different
We fin' to take this over man we on a mission
And I'ma give you all that good livin, to change the game man forever winnin

Chorus
We makin it rain
We makin it rain, it rain, it rain
We makin it rain, we makin it rain, yeah (X2)
