about

Although called Chapter 2, 'Respect Your Legacy' is actually the first chapter in what is planned to be a thirteen chapter series of The Black Lion Chronicles.The slick production on 'Respect Your Legacy is reminiscent of the musical surround experience of Jackson's Thriller - strings and analog key basses abound - while the vocal delivery is an unforced and energetic intelligent rap. The album is professional and passionate, while Blee sings of positive movements in his own personal life - from streets and temptations, to decisions based on his dedication to living right and making his dreams happen. What else is there. Solid work which will leave you looking forward to more.

VERSE 2

Man ah Caribbean man born inna montseraat
Mobsta ah rude boy who no tek no back chat
Don’t get it twisted cauz the islands are tiny
Take a look around I got warriors behind me
From the Caymans down to Tobago
Man ah real thugs and we nah really play, no
Not the Kokomo you always see on TV
Things get ugly down here believe
We got French speaking, dutch speaking and Spanish speaking
Islanders that hit up beach parties every weekend
That’s probably why we got the natural coolness
And the smooth swag make you haters look foolish
Caribbean seas, Caribbean sun
Caribbean females, Caribbean fun
Caribbean food, Caribbean rum
I bleed the Caribbean til my days are done

VERSE 3

It ain’t no mystery
That we built for survival check the history
No matter how strong the winds turn or how much fire the earth churns
We stand firm, recover quick, pride is what we preserve
So I show no concern for faces with scars
Or bady’s that been behind bars, we follow a different law
Down here, no matter who you are
Everybody bleed the same blood so fear you, dat nah gwarn star
Yes I respect all people
But please don’t come around me with your celebrity ego
I never respected that and never will
Yo it’s just the way I was raised, ah one Start ting still
So gwarn cool me no really pan no hype ting
You do you and I do me an everyting alright king
I move like a Viking, I cross them seas
With a swagger so complete so, don’t try to compete no
Track Name: Street Jam
STREET JAM

CHORUS
Yo let’s party in the streets man, in the streets man
Party in the streets man, in the streets man
Party in the streets man, make it a street jam
You bring the music and the drinks I bring the freaks man

VERSE 1
Bring the speakers out, put them in the yard
That’s how it’s goin’ down, no security guards
Just an open bar, man we party hard
Everybody feeling good like it’s Mardi Gras
Shut down the block like we run this Borough
5-0, tell ‘em come back tomorrow
One rule to follow, wild just a little bit
You know me like it when your spine does that little trick
Now there you go drop it low
Real easy mama bring it up slow
It’s the way that you work it
Got every dude in the place falling back like the matrix
So come and feel the buzz, like everybody does
I’m here to make the session live I don’t care what it was
Man what you thinking of, trying to spoil the love
Somebody please immobilise da fool ya with some drugs


VERSE 2
Yo we dem boys from Strat, you know how we act
A shorty to the front and one to the back
It must be in the blood, the way I drop the mack
But once you go small island ain’t no turning back
I keep the lady’s screaming all night long
No time for dreaming me, all night strong
Whether the French cut or she in a thong
You know I’m climbing all over that like King Kong
Turn up the bass mister sound man
Loud enough to make me levitate off the ground man
That’s how we do this son, Montserrat style
Vibe’s contagious like a contact high
I’m a true O G
Original gallace, yeah you know Blee
No time for the malice man life’s too sweet
We got good food some beautiful girls and a few freaks

VERSE 3
This one going out to you and you
Party don’t stop when we do what we do
DJ keep it coming on the 1’s and 2’s
That’s how we move man we keep it old school
No invitation necessary come through
As long as you know how to play by the rules
No bodda violate wit u dutty attitude
We trying to have some fun out here be cool man
Track Name: Body Language
CHORUS

It’s lust, I don’t really wanna hear you talk
Just hush, anything you’ve got to say to me
Just touch, and let your body talk to me

VERSE 1

I see the S in your eyes, the E on your lips
The X on your chest girl you know what’s coming next
I know you see my me desire making an appearance
In my jeans, and you’re about to give me clearance
To touch down, get close and squeeze
Cheek to cheek, breast to chest, knees to knees
We so close we could synchronise heart beats
We bout to set off the sprinklers with all this heat
Last I heard hey were playing Ludacris
But we grinding like it’s a slow jam
I know there’s people staring but I’m not really shook
Cauz all the blood from my head my manhood took
I slide my hands down your back to cup your booty
You sink your nails in my flesh reacting to me
As I feel your warm breath against my neck
I’m eagerly anticipating what’s coming next

VERSE 2

Thought I was in control until you took me by the hand
To lead me out the club at only 2am
It’s either that I trust you or I’ve lost my mind
To not know where I’m going and leave my ride behind
But curiousity is killing me
And this jones in my bones has got to be fulfilled B
You cross your legs in the cab trying to control the heat
But I know you gon’ leave a wet patch on the seat
As you slowly reach for your keys
The look in your eyes is just tempting me
To kick in your door, pick you up round my waist
And put you against the wall
Ecstacy without speech, next to me you gon’ reach
As I hit you with that small island therapy
The perfect combination of pleasure and pain
No names necessary girl I’ll see you again

BRIDGE

No words necessary, I see it in your walk
Got the makings for a fire all you need is a spark
No words necessary, I see it in your smile
You’ve been wanting some of this passion for awhile
No words necessary, I see it your face
I sense t in your touch and the way your lips taste
No words necessary, I hear it in your moans
We in the zone, for sure, we in the zone
Track Name: Imagine
VERSE 1

Man I don't even wanna be the typical, lyrical hotstepper
With a girl for every letter in the alpha.....bet
And I lost and now I'm paying the cost and
This debt's still not paid off and
I know it's karma, that makes me wan' her
Like a dread wants that marijuana
Yeah I did some wrong in the past
Now it's coming back to lash me in the ass an'
I can't break free
I mean I wanna stop but I can't make me
You see I'm sending flowers, spending hours writing poetry
And she still says maybe...imagine

VERSE 2

Man what the hell is this, I'm even tell chicks
That, I'm not in the mood for booty calls
Even though I haven't had it in a while
But for some reason my mind's occupied with her smile
And yo, to be honest, that's all I've got
It's like she already knows the plot
Like she wrote the whole script
Everything I spit she's got a reply for and
She's looking at me like boy, you gotta try more
They say you always want what you can't have and
Maybe that's why I want her so bad but nah
I've been in that space before and
It's always been easy to shake that bug off
But this one's like an infection
I'm getting touched by naked women and
Still no reaction, coz I keep reflecting
Like I'm behind bars and my mind
Keeps going beyond stars as I just imagine....

VERSE 3

I guess it's my time to burn, that's life and
There are lessons that you have to
This story doesn't have a happy ending
Shorty wasn't feeling and she really wasn't pretending
Even though my ego tried to paint a different picture
Telling me that, all I had to do was get one chance to kiss her
Man I couldn't even get that close, so yeah
I'm gon' have to let these feelings ghost
I'm not mad that she rejected me
Even though it kinda hurts like a vasectomy with no anaesthetic
I no longer see it as pathetic, when I hear people say
They can't eat, can't sleep, can't breathe
Til they hear from that one they love
I kinda understand what you speaking of and
Even though I never got a chance to consummate mine
Every now and then I like to take a little time to Imagine.....
Track Name: Obsession
OBSESSION

CHORUS

O to the b obsession
Baby there’s no discretion
You and me have got this tension
And I can’t breathe yeah
O to the b obsession
Hoping I can make an impression
Now I got a little attention
You’re all I need yeah

VERSE 1

Girl you a vixen, every time you talk I listen
Anything you want I’ll make that my mission
Can’t get you out of my mind an addiction
No need for rehab I like this affliction
Giving you pleasure, my favourite tradition
Lingerie first, my favourite condition
No need for suspicion you got the position
You in my life, I need no addition
I’m missing your lips
If I have to go more than two hours between each kiss
All that I need is this
You, air, water….that’s it
I’m sick with obsession there’s lust in my veins
Ain’t gotta play around so there’s rust in my game
Still I’d rush in again
Even if you left me crushed and in pain

VERSE 2

I get lost in your eyes, and I take pleasure
In the view from the front and the back and he sides
I will never put you in the back of my ride
Girl please, you make me wanna back up my pride
You come first, my gold medal prospect
Got me on sumpn that I’ve not come across yet
A little bit absurd, yes I’m a lyricist
But the way you make me feel I can’t put in words
I know you observe what occurs when we touch
And I can’t fake that it’s sumpn like a rush
Hips don’t lie you can feel it in my thrust
Like Oprah with money, I can’t get enough
Talking bout hustling, even that can’t muscle in
Once you and I start snuggling
I’m struggling with fever I need my night nurse
And only you alone can quench this ya thirst


BRIDGE

I’m feeling the way that you’re walking
And all of your style not to mention
You are a natural beauty
And you’ve become my obsession
Hoping that we can start talking
Cause there’s just sexual tension
Baby you know I adore you
Baby you are my obsession
Track Name: Respect Your Legacy
RESPECT YOUR LEGACY

VERSE 1

My life, my definition, I move with a different vision
Here’s my petition
Wisdom, wealth, virtue that’s the main mission
Don’t feed, teach everyone to start fishing
Stop wishing, waiting for them handouts
Or trying to take a man’s food, what’s your plan about
Don’t build your house on sandy foundations
I felt the temptations but I found patience
Avoided altercations, kept my focus on the grind
Not for money but to get a better mind
See over time, I realized the choice was good
A lot of things that are said, gets misunderstood
There’s too much ego, everybody wants to be a hero
But it’s like they have no love for people
Obama says change but it’s long overdue
So don’t wait for him the change starts with you

CHORUS

You can bang but, that’s not me blood
Run with your gang but, that’s not me cuz
I’m a warrior, I’m cool on my own
I’ve got no time for the hype man I’m grown
You can ride but, that’s not me man
Duck and hide but, that’s not me fam
I seen proof of the power of I can
So I’ve gotta stay true to who I am

VERSE 2

Self reliance is the best alliance
Take the time and analyze that success is a science
That relies on the compliance of certain rules
So exclude certain dudes, from certain moves
As your certain to lose if you choose to be too kind
Rely on instincts whenever you’re in two minds
You see in due time, they will get their head straight
And if they don’t well be glad you lost that dead weight
They say life is short so make every second count
That’s why every time I drop, there’s another ounce
Of improvement, I’m not about losing
I drop, get back up, shake it off and keep it moving
Some people like talking from the sidelines
They cuss you when you’re losing but when you win want a sideline
But not on my time, as hard as I grind
Please believe that any cake I bake is all mine

VERSE 3

Picture a room with your mother, your father, your brother,
Your sister, your cousins, your aunties and uncles your lover
Your grandparents and your friends from school and college
Your boss at work and the heroes to whom you pay homage
All the homies from the block, your posse, your crew, your gang, your clique
And the one you fell in love with after one kiss
And your life is the topic of the day
What would you want the commentator to say
Track Name: I Love You
I LOVE YOU


CHORUS

I brought you here so your responsibility is mine
And even though right now it’s kind of hard to give you time
You’ve gotta know that you’re the one I can’t leave behind
Yo, your pops is on a mission you can see the signs
You’re probably cursed to do the same it’s in the blood line
But I’m gon’ make sure yyour life gets above mine
Let you go through what I go through man, how can I
Before I do that you know I’d rather ……die

VERSE 1

I never planned for you but I take a stand for you
You gotta understand when I raise my hand to you
It’s only cause I see you making mistakes I made
So I gotta get you on the right path and quick
Cause time is of the essence, and who knows how much longer
You gon’ have me in your presence, so
I gotta let you know, what your pops is about
So when the opinions come, you don’t doubt
What you know
Cause, I know they gon’ tell you daddy was a mad man
And you for sure could see the secrets to my mad plan
So when they run they mouths about me you can laugh man
Cause what they get is not second it’s the half hand
And don’t worry you don’t have carry on mine
One thing for sure you gotta have is your own mind
Be your own person, yeah opinions come
But your life is yours so live your own version



VERSE 2

I give you all that I can, when I can
Understand, I got plans but I’m just a man
I will make mistakes of course
Even though I try to come off as a super hero
Yeah daddy know’s best but no not always
Life can be a long lonely hallway
Doors will open and doors will close
But just know that my spirit is with you all day
Treasure the values and wisdom I give you
A little bit more than material possessions
Yeah it’s a material world but freedom doesn’t lie in the material essence
And the lessons, I teach you
Will be a little bit hard to grasp for now
But just hold on to them
And have a little faith that the answers will come to pass
Track Name: Sad State Of Affairs
CHORUS

It’s a sad state of affairs that we have in here
And we claim that we civilised
Because it’s more than insane cause we keep doing the same thing
That destroy so many lives

VERSE 1

See I don’t know about y’all but it’s embarrassing
To know that there’s a need for operation Trident
In case you don’t know that’s the part of the police
To deal specifically with black on black crime in the streets
What the ….is wrong with us
You telling me that this is the state of the race that
Most advanced society we made that
Carried the burden of slavery and stand tall on the same back
And now you trying to tell me that we struggling
To find the answers to the puzzling
That they keep forcing down our throats straight muzzling
But we keep on guzzling and hate and kill each other
But feel good to be hustling
Come on man escape society
Take some to yourself and gain sobriety
Look at the story of your life yeah that’s your legacy
Now keep it real man to man are you proud of what you see?

VERSE 2

Are you strong enough to rise up long enough
To divide illuminate grasp and wise up followers
Of any man or any clan who strives to dishonour us
Who lies just to topple us?
The people should salute!
And Ill recruit any being, given the fact were all human beings,
Tax man, even the police will cease when they stop breathing.
All seeing eye, man kinds arteries bleed but I’m past letting the foxes breed
I’m not a sheep
I need to sever degeneracy so I slice slay with syllables.
Benevolent rebel, eloquent, forget embedded pebbles.
Severing every traitor with blades of bass
Raping state ass, I spit exquisite politics to twist a sick nature
Anarchistic ink drips, and civil cysts desist but persist to blister effortless,
seeping from beneath lips.
Pissed system, missing literalists and although I’m throwing lyrical bricks,
You know my path provokes trespass, so tread hard!



VERSE 3

Man I watch War Of The Worlds
And I swear to god I wish there was a war of the worlds
I wish that earth would get invaded by extra terrestials
With technology to make our weapons look like vegetables
And I wish that they were hostile so we could see
How ridiculous the way we living life could really be
They won’t care about the colour of your skin
The size of your bling
The money in your pocket, the position that your
In the bigger scheme of things there’s no value
To these things that we fight for like animals
Instead of all these criminal activities
We should be philosophising about the remedies
To the problems we face
And no it’s not just the blacks
Everybody’s in a messed up state of time
You not feeling like I’m feeling man just give it some time
Track Name: The Black Review
It’s time to make a guest list
Don’t think that you’re getting in ‘cause you got melanin and thick lips
The Black race is one of intelligence, righteous movements
And a power that prevents us losing
So understand it’s a sign of weakness
Walking roun’ being proud of this gangsta street sh..
It’s common knowledge that drugs and guns were placed
In our communities to start the self destruction of our race
Yeah we fell for it then but how
In God’s name could we still fall for that now
I remember as a child setting traps for rats
Yeah they worked at first but they got wise to that
And I’m pretty sure the human IQ is higher so
Why we getting burnt by the same old fire
You could only be as strong as your weakest link
So like Anne Robinson, I’m giving you a smile and a wink……..good bye

Now let’s address another issue, and that’s the misuse
Of N-I-G-G-E-R
We claim that this word has come so far
From being used to leave emotional scars…, and we’re proud of that
This generation is proud of that, man what’s goin on?
Forget about whether it’s right or wrong
The fact is this word still leaves us torn
We say to us it doesn’t matter it’s just a word
But to our elders it hurts, everytime it’s heard
So if it’s just a word to you man stop using it
And find another six letters to be cool with
Have you no respect for what your people went through?
The freedom, that their hard work has sent you?
You could only be as strong as your weakest link
So like Anne Robinson, I’m giving you a smile and a wink……..good bye

Now I’m not saying everybody should be revolutionary, but
There should be some sense of evolutionary
Steps, being taken as far as progress but
Looking at us now you’d feel so hopeless
The consensus in every city, is Black people are
Best known for criminal activity
Man I’m sick of being seen like that, you could say it’s not true
But your actions keep feeding that
In war, thay use divide and conquer
Apply it to yourself and it could only make you stronger
You selling drugs to your people, you gotta review that
You feeling good doing evil, you gotta review that
You putting money over life, you gotta review that
You caught up in the hype, you gotta review that
You could only be as strong as your weakest link
So like Anne Robinson, I’m giving you a smile and a wink……..good bye
