Track Name: Heart Go Down
-Chorus-
I know things change, You do too.
When you hear my name, I wonder what you do.
Does your heart go down?
When my name comes up, when my name comes up?
Does your heart go down, down?
When my name comes up?

It’s going down, down, down, down
x 3

-Verse 1-
They got my face in the paper, I’m hoping all my exes see.
First verse goes to a certain one especially,
Honestly, I thought when I made it you’d be here next to me
Instead you sneaking past your man sending late night texts to me.
OH WAIT! I wasn’t supposed to say that, right?
I’m probably not supposed to say you always ask to stay the night.
You were at the fair holding hands with your man,
The next night texting me demanding we make plans.
You ain’t even concerned with how your guy might feel,
and I ain’t showing off, I’m just Highlight reel (highlight real).
Although the plan isn’t still for us to be together,
and you’re crazy, but I’ll love you forever,
Things change.

- Chorus -

-Verse 2 -
Another verse another lady
We were best friends and at first you weren’t my baby
If you ever thought I did you wrong on purpose, then you’re crazy
Cause the things I did to you still hurt me as of lately.
I take partial credit for causing your insecurities,
but tell me why you ain’t applying all the things you learned from me?
Man treat you bad, you be acting like you need it.
Then you just turn the page, you be acting like you read it.
I’m in no position to tell you how to be living.
But don’t ask for advice if you don’t ever plan to listen!
I know the plan isn’t still for us to be together,
and I haven’t always shown it, but I will love you forever,
Promise.

-Chorus-

-Verse 3-
This last verse isn’t quite what you’d expect,
We were extra close, but she’s not really an ex.
You got a man now and I mean no disrespect
but you left me in suspense, I might need a sec.
Forever keeping my composure,
This is not a song, this is me looking for closure.
I hope it don’t offend you that I said this over rapping,
but am I wrong for acknowledging it happened?
This ain’t the first great thing that came to end,
I’m happy we ain’t go too far so we can still be friends,
I know the plan isn’t still for us to be together,
There were never hard feelings, and I will love you forever,
Boo.

Track Name: Kim Jong Trill ft. Mike Da Gunna
Kim Jong Trill
Verse 1
Marcus:
It’s 2 am, I’m in the zone. Much more than I’m letting on.
My old lady ain’t getting along, she hit my phone she get the tone
I usually just chill at home. But I’m at the set, and this my song.
Then time froze and light was shone, 3 angels came down stairs bright as gold.
She said getting with me is like getting on, rock with us that’s a stepping stone.
Rock with us, forget Stallone. Climb these stairs you can get a throne
We got alcohol, Al Capone. Stupid loud, megaphone.
Said I don’t smoke, don’t get me wrong. Maybe I just wont belong.
She said Marcus, just come up, Mike can come if he wanna
I said I don’t know no Mike, girl, All I know is Mike Da Gunna!
That’s when I realized these were stairs to success
Grabbed the women cranked the tunes as we danced up the steps.
Chorus
The sun comes up, we at it still
But that’s my cue, I said it’s been so real.
She said I think so too, we should chill.
She's like "what was your name again?" I’m Kim Jong Trill!
Cause I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
Say I know I'm out my mind, but I like it here it's deeper.
Verse 2
Mike:
Yellow N***a with a mellow personality/
I hope I don't get Knicked on my path to do this math ya see/
I usually don't stunt, too many people act for me/
I usually don't party, but tonight's an abnormality/
I walked up on her, she said her name was Valeryie/
I grabbed her hips and pulled her closer she ain't even mad at me/
About face she turned, twerking with some mastery/
The Dean's daughter sure to be slaughtered if he captures me/
She said "Won't you come back with me?" I know who yo daddy be/
But this my last semester and in war there are some casualties/
She said "Mike Da Gunna why you keep it so real?"/
Cuz I'm Kim Jong Trill/
Chorus
The sun comes up, we at it still
But that’s my cue, I said it’s been so real.
She said I think so too, we should chill.
She's like "what was your name again?" I’m Kim Jong Trill!
Cause I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
Say I know I'm out my mind, but I like it here it's deeper.
Verse 3
Marcus:
Aye Mike Tho, Aye Mike Tho... I need your insight bro
I think I met some angels but they might just be some psychos
Mike:
Aight bro, aight bro. You talking flashing lights tho?
I met the Dean’s daughter and I had her for a night, yo.
Marcus:
phew! you trippin.. and you can’t tell me different
I guess I know who to suspect if you ever came up missing
Mike:
My admission of my mission wasn’t missin’ from my mention and
At least I kept it real instead of focusing on visions man
Marcus::
Speaking of visions, you aint even listen
Do you believe in angels, do you believe they visit?
Mike:
I’ll take what you was sippin’, hold up I remember
You had slipped and hit ya head and you was passed out for a minute
Chorus
The sun comes up, we at it still
But that’s my cue, I said it’s been so real.
She said I think so too, we should chill.
She's like "what was your name again?" I’m Kim Jong Trill!
Cause I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
I’m their dear leader, and they’re my cheer leaders
Say I know I'm out my mind, but I like it here it's deeper.
Track Name: The List
Chorus
Girl what’s on your mind?
Come on air it out
Matter of fact write that right here..
What’s this? This the list of stuff I never cared about
Write it right next to them haters
We shining in their faces
They threatening the fam, then we don't care bout no cases
never cared about opinions, so put that on the list too
First they hate you, then they love you
then they diss you, then they miss you
I don't care!

Verse 1
It’s young Marcus Norris, call me by no other
and I’m stuntin like my daddy, please don’t tell my mother
I say It’s The Royal Fam, I be with Da Gunna
Me and my new girl in love, just not with eachother
I’m at the deep end I aint swimming, got misguided feelings for some misguided women
all my homies think that I’m slipping cause it’s known, I told some bad chicks good riddance
said I’m grindin like a dentist and she wasn't trynna listen.
Gets kinda tricky when you’re dealin with feelings
I’m a good guy but you treat me like a villain
too much stock in your friends, now they all up in the business
I’m looking, and I’m searching, it’s something I gotta find
and she say Mark, what you looking for? Man you must have lost your mind.
cause we both know that you fine, but you be tripping all the time
That's when I get in my zone and be like girl what's on your…..

Chorus
Girl what’s on your mind?
Come on air it out
Matter of fact write that right here..
What’s this? This the list of stuff I never cared about
Write it right next to them haters
We shining in their faces
They threatening the fam, then we don't care bout no cases
never cared about opinions, so put that on the list too
First they hate you, then they love you
then they diss you, then they miss you
I don't care!

Verse 2
just turned 21, but I’m thinkin at an older age
I’m starting to get scared I’ll cut the world with these shoulder blades
I learned pretty women turn ugly when they know you’re paid
cause beauty even when it’s in the eye of the beholder fades
this cold world we living in got me in a polar state
I’m powered by the solar rays, but I just can’t let go of shade
They say play the cards you’re dealt, no one can control your fate
but I’m trying to get all the cards, like I was a pro at spades
I promise, I’ma play the game til the controller breaks
They in the game but they ain’t saying nothing, they should know this aint no charades
so when my reign starts, guard your parade, I’m still the same Mark, just got some bolder ways
Prison City born and raised so that bull you pulling just don’t phase me

Chorus
Girl what’s on your mind?
Come on air it out
Matter of fact write that right here..
What’s this? This the list of stuff I never cared about
Write it right next to them haters
We shining in their faces
They threatening the fam, then we don't care bout no cases
never cared about opinions, so put that on the list too
First they hate you, then they love you
then they diss you, then they miss you
I don't care!
Track Name: Slow Dancing ft. Ashley Mondisa
You're not saying much,
You don't have to, You don't have to
What's understood need not be explained.
Will you give me your love?
You don't have to, You don't have to
Got nothin to lose and everything to gain

I can feel your heartbeat,
We can't get much more close than that
Your arms around my shoulders, my hands on your lower back
You kissed me on my neck, I looked at you and stole one back
It may be just a dance, but to us it's so much more than that

Chorus
We're taking a chance, Ready here we go
Can I have this dance? Please Don't tell me no
Say you want romance, What you waiting for?
It's just me and you dancing, but we're dancing so slow

Ashley:
I don’t want you to leave
You don't have to, You don't have to
Lord knows I feel the same way
For now just dance with me
You don't have to, You don't have to
but tomorrow's not promised today

I can feel your heartbeat,
We can't get much more close than that
Your arms around my shoulders, my hands on your lower back
You kissed me on my neck, I looked at you and stole one back
It may be just a dance, but to us it's so much more than that

Chorus
We're taking a chance, Ready here we go
Can I have this dance? Please Don't tell me no
Say you want romance, What you waiting for?
It's just me and you dancing, but we're dancing so slow

Guitar Solo

I can feel your heartbeat,
We can't get much more close than that
Your arms around my shoulders, my hands on your lower back
You kissed me on my neck, I looked at you and stole one back
It may be just a dance, but to us it's so much more than that

Chorus
We're taking a chance, Ready here we go
Can I have this dance? Please Don't tell me no
Say you want romance, What you waiting for?
It's just me and you dancing, but we're dancing so slow
Track Name: Sunrise Theme
Marcus Norris - Sunrise Theme Lyrics

Verse 1
They ain’t never liked us, We ain't never cared
517 boys, but they know us everywhere
but they know us everywhere, Marcus Norris that’s the mayor
We don’t know we livin reckless? Yea, we know but we don’t care.
Old heads jealous of a youngin with a plan
Cause I never over-sit and they never understand
They talk behind my back, but they undercover fans,
Cause the man that I’m becoming is becoming the man
I’m the man.... They hated,
I remember they hated,
I hope every time I come to mind, that they remember I made it
I ain’t fail like they did, I did whatever I stated,
getting cake off my old stuff, they like happy belated!
They faking, They don’t know I know that they faking
They smile all in my face, but honestly they can’t take it
I was 17 when I copped a Benz and I took it right to get painted
cause just a few years prior we were living in someone’s basement
a couple years later, we were off in that trailer
we aint have no water, showered at the neighbors
we aint ask for no favors, we aint wait for no prayers
mom went and got a couple jobs I know I could never repay her
I only know how to thank her, and thats to be all that I’ll be
Remember how they doubt me? they thought it was just a hobby.
I went from rapping in that basement to concertos with my colleagues and I write them like Vivaldi in Venetian Ospedale
Rise

Chorus:

Rise
Rise

Cause I’m only getting stronger, I am hot and getting warmer
I sit back and ask my momma what you want?
She said I wanna see my Son Rise!

Rise
Rise

Cause you can have excuses, or you can have success
but you can’t have both, nothing more, nothing less
I’ma rise!

Verse 2.
and I’m making it look too easy
I do this for Britt, Bri, Tony, Annie, Weezy
I say Its The Royal Fam stupid ball, Fushigi
Made it out of Prison City, No ki’s, Houdini.
I put on for my city
so it’s rest in peace to Dee, Anthony, Mike, & Romie G
E, Ben, Bobby B, and we can’t forget about Monique
Tell them haters gotta kill me if you plan on stopping me
Never speak on my fam, Never speak on how we eat
cause wasn’t nobody saying much when we didn’t have a spot to sleep.
Now I get awards and everybody got a speech?
Cross me like a pastor learn I practice what I preach.
Rise

Chorus

Verse 3
Fire in in the flesh, real as he write
no cookie cutter, not even on Christmas Eve night
Find favor like David, I feel no Philistine fright
Rappers on they last leg, and I’m millipede tight
That means I really be right
How I’m feeling, I ain’t chillin til a milli feel light
haters hearing what I write being like ‘he aight”
but them kids is not the sun, this the Billie Jean type
I wrote this so Michael Norris know he can do whatever he wanna do
Know that they gonna talk about you, but not because they doubting you
They just know when you succeed they’ll be left without excuse
So when they try at stopping you from doing what you gotta do, just Rise.

Chorus
Track Name: Scars
Chorus
Life’s Lessons may come with scars
but don’t let them change who you are.
Please hold true.
Cause you don’t know who’s holding to you
You’ll both lose


Verse 1
Homie was from Jackson, born at Foote Hospital
daddy wasn’t there then, and even the doctors know
played sports in high school, he was unstoppable
coaches gassed him up and told him anything was possible
couple teachers doubted but he wouldn’t let it stop em though
worked harder than anyone, failures not an option so
He studying real tough, he got a couple college goals
But girls always choosing, got a tutor on the honor roll
She said his seed blossomed and he bout to be a father so
Now he got a mouth to feed, we all know the jobs is low
His homie said he got a plug, ain’t talking a socket though
Now he selling rocks and blow, unaware the coppers know
You can’t get a pardon for trynna be a provider so
when they picked him by Josies they said you gotta go
Collect call to his girl, say she at the hospital
Daddy isn’t there then, and even the doctors know.


Chorus

Verse 2
It’s been 3 years since Flame On, man that’s amazing
I remember when I dropped it and my hometown went crazy
I performed at the fairgrounds, my dream since a baby
I was autographing body parts of fully grown ladies
Wrote about me in the paper, telling everyone to play me
Cause I ain’t like them other guys, just let them do they thing
Brought a band to the King Center, they ain’t even pay me,
I just did it out of love, cause kids mimic what they see
then I got sick, but at first it didn’t phase me
I figured it’s just the flu, my voice is just weird lately
but a couple months later, voice cracking like a baby’s
I can’t perform, I can’t record, this really just ain’t me
So I head up to the Doctors, I hopped in that mercedes
A couple scans, a couple scopes, I’m trynna see what they see
They say it’s a type of hernia, but I ain’t know they mean
They say my stomach’s coming through my throat, and I don’t know what will my fate be?
I’m like how does this happen? what are you not explaining?
Well it usually occurs in older obese ladies
who have spent their whole life smoking, and have diabetes maybe
I am none of those things, God why must you forsake me?
Tried a buncha medicines, but they ain’t even phase me
So now it’s made worse by all time thats wasting
and I’m getting depressed cause fans starting to hate me
They say Where the new music at? they think I’m being lazy
So now I gotta get surgery, or just be sick for life
So went up to the hospital and went under that knife
but they woke me up afterwards like something isn’t right
We had reverse pain meds to try to save your life
So I’m laying there and I feel it all, it reminds me of a scene of Saw
more pain than I ever felt, can’t even move just see the wall
I still be having nightmares, I wake up and I feel my scars
but I can’t let it show cause people need me to for leaning on
You can be destroyed by the bad things that you go through
or you can skip the sadness and just do what you’re supposed to
if not yourself, do it for those you’re close to
Know if I survived that then there’s nothing that I won’t do.
Rise
Track Name: Let Me Get Em ft. Courtney Powell
Verse 1
They say why you never say the same things these other rappers spit?
Cause I am the correction, Marcus Norris Asterisk
They aint got no punches they be rapping like a pacifist
Don't match me with the wackness I will raise the game like Lazarus.
Well dressed actresses got me gettin passionate
she switch her gear quick I only ride with automatic chicks,
even she can tell you I am not the one to battle with
I son these rappers quick and then they momma's say 'I'm glad it's his'
Rap, Sing, And Produce, dang how does he manage it?
I'm just trynna get a couple checks like Santa's list.
I come out the book askin Mike what this planet is?
get so nasty on these hooks you'll need more than some bandanges.
5-1-7 boys, Its The Royal Fam in this
You was out partying while I was busy planning this
they tell me what I should do, I tell em God can handle this
They give their 2 cents everyday, do we look like them famished kids?

Chorus
Obstacles come,
But that's all we know
Wanna see how it's done,
Just let me go

LET ME GET EM!

let me get em.

Can I get em?
I'ma get em,
Yea, I'ma get em.. Lets Go!


Verse 2
I'm looking down on the level that you're working to
You'll spend your life trynna mimic the things I was first to do
heard that you wanted me vs you, blurt it dude,
too sick to be concerned with flu's and worried about what you germs will do
emerging as the perfect version every verse I'm burning through
you wont like me when i'm angry look what I done turned into
skin start turning green then I rip my shirt in 2
ripped pants match the aqua's, you know they got that purple too
when you the furthest from a serpent them snakes will try to herd to you
see them lying on their bellies cause I'm standing vertical
I don't know who gassed you up but baby now I'm burping you
turn your courage to nervousness, cut it out like surgeons do
this is urgent news, tell them worms the birds is lose
I came here to kill some rappers, really aint concerned with who
you acting like we hurting you, it's action when the curtains move
man it's the royal fam, titanic, murder cruise (crews)

Chorus

Bridge
Lets Go x 4
Who's idea was it to release em from his leash?
now they say who's idea was it to release him?
to release him?

Chorus
Track Name: Monster Sounds
Chorus
My ex keep calling, she been crying to our pictures,
tho I wanna comfort her, it’d be a lie to say I miss her,
It just really don’t phase me like it should
How come nothing ever phase me like it should?
I may be young and dumb,
But I say.. I’m young and numb.
That means I don’t feel nothing, I survived so much
So now a days I’m desensitized to the rush
If you look me in my eyes and my soul isn’t found
It’s cause they made me into a monster,
and this is how a monster sounds.
This is how a monster sounds

Verse 1
I hopped off Dr. Frankenstein’s Table,
rip off the straps shake off the cables
got on my grind, stayed on it faithful
now my paper stay together like it paid off in staples
We are not equals, don’t let them boys deceive you.
The difference is they local, it’s obvious that we move
I’m dealing with some issues, that’s made worse by weak crews
Since Jesus never walked in these shoes, its “What would my OGs Do?”
Cause people depend on me, trust I’m gon rise
cause living large means more than just extra fries
and when they at my shows see the trust in my eyes,
so you’ll never catch me falling like a trust excersize
No sheep, counting on me get less sleep,
trynna cover up the king brought the wrong bed sheets
because these streets I’m raw, red meat
kill tracks like bad dads leave dead beats
I’m a monster!!

Chorus

We mean in these streets, young road rage
before you cross us, look both ways
I used to have a big squad, miss those days
Now I just dodge the bull, OLAY!
waiting on the industry to let me in my pro phase
Like waiting on the preheat, tell me what your stove say
Michigan rappers getting blue, guess I’m so maize
Breath of fresh air, I don’t flow I Flo-naise!
Did I mention I been gettin paid?
Rappers keep biting me, tell me how this one taste
You be with your dogs, but all yall know is sit and stay
Me and Mike play darts on calendar, hits for days
and if they make a movie about me when my life ends,
this will be the very moment it’ll get exciting
rappers heard Flame On and they quit the writing
don’t know what comes after these 16’s like 50 Tyson
Track Name: In Front Of Your Momma
Verse 1
You’re Thinking of our love,
I see it in your face
No one knows but us,
You think the secret’s safe.
All our friends are here,
but they’ll never know
at least until today
Think I’ll give them a show
Easy does it!
You tease me out in public
cause I need it and you love it baby
and it’s like you get your highs
from the fire in my eyes I think you’re in for a surprise cause

Hook
I’m just a young lover,
I do what I wanna
Today I’m feeling bad
mess around kiss you in front of your momma
I’m just lover I do what I wanna
Today I’m feeling bad,
I’m feeling bad!

“I won’t stop you”
I aint think you would x2
“I won’t stop you”
I aint think you would x2

Verse 2
Please don’t take this wrong
I mean no disrespect
But how you been explain
Marks I left on your neck?
You hiding in those crowds
Thinking they gon protect you
I hate to tell you baby
They ain’t saving you forever
You so helpless
I need it I can’t help it
and you acting like I’m selfish, baby!
but you know you’re excited
you know that you like it
You know I get
I am!

Chorus

Bridge:
… And now I’m like Outkast is
For what I did to your daughter, I’m sorry Ms. Jackson
But she know I’m bout that action
She don’t mess with other artists cause they ain’t got no passion.
She say... They ain’t got no passion
and I ain’t afraid to say I want her, no time for that acting
The answer to your question just depends on how you ask it
Do you got a thing for my daughter,“ said More than you can imagine

Chorus
Track Name: UFC ft. Arie Yayo
Arie Verse 1
Either I’m crazy or something is on your mind.
Maybe I’m crazy ‘cause something is sure on mine.
Would you blame me if I fell for you?
Could you blame me, if I fell for you?
I can’t see what the problem is and I can’t ignore the obvious.

Chorus
Don’t act surprised. No need to say more, baby.
Your eyes don’t lie. What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for?

Please don’t fight the feeling. I know what you’re feeling.
Why do we fight the feeling? You got me feeling like I’m in the UFC.

We’ve been fighting for so long things always seem the rightest, right before you’re wrong.
We’ve been fighting for so long things always seem the rightest, right before you’re wrong.

Marcus Verse:
Either I’m crazy, or you often think of me.
Maybe I’m crazy ‘cause I often think of we.
Would you blame me, if I fell for you?
How could you blame me, if I fell for you?
And I don’t know where to go from here, but I’m so ready to go it’s clear.
Don’t act surprised..

Chorus

Bridge:
Arie:
This is for the lovers.(The, The, The lovers) This is for the lovers. Strictly for the lovers.
This is for the lovers.(The, The, The lovers) This is for the lovers. Strictly for the lovers.
And if you’re tired of the fight I need you to sing with me, tonight.

Marcus:
I’m thinking, it’s like it’s me then there’s you
and if I feel it this strongly then I know you feel it too.
So if it’s you, and it’s me
Why do we fight the feeling, why do we even fight
You’re offense is impeccable, defense impregnable
but the match that we are fighting just delaying the inevitable
my motives are not questionable, want more of your love, less of the bull
poured my heart into a glass but without your half I see it less than full
-Chorus-
Track Name: Michigan Whether or Not ft. Danielle Powell
Marcus:
He disregards predictions, that love it can be cold
Her sunny disposition, could melt away the snow
He can't do as he's told, cause that's now how you grow
You live and learn, I suppose

Danielle:
She's been through storms before, and can't forget the pain
Still she manages to underestimate the rain,
But when that weather came, she had herself to blame
Cause Things Change, She knew they would change

Chorus
The rain gets cold, it might change to snow
I hope you know, We both can grow so don't you let it go
She wants me, then wants me stopped
She loves me, and then she loves me not
say you don't need what we got
but you still wont leave so it must be hot

At first we're cool
And then it rains, And then it rains, And then it rains
(Repeat)

Marcus:
In summer she's cool, Its different when it's winter
When it's hot outside he'll tell the breeze how he's missed her
A couple months go by and she'll become so bitter
He'll wanna quit her, but won't know wassup with her

Danielle:
She fallen victim to the coldness time and time again
she's tired of being coatless and lettin him come in
she's told the storm will end, but he never tells her when
so until then, She'll block out all the wind

-Chorus-

Marcus:
We fight alot, but we wont let that get to us
cause on them good days got people asking when the wedding was
These girls be hearing how I'm so on like etc.
and if they say we aint hot, why they steady sweating us?
We tell them girls swerve
She’s always on my mind, and I’m always on her nerves
She say Girl this is my jam though!, Flame On preserves
from that 517 native coming straight off the reserve!


Chorus x3
