about

First I’d like to give a very special thank you to Dakota Daffron. A great fan that’s gone but certainly never forgotten.

2015 has been a really enlightening and exciting year. The rise of the Reaper Legion (formerly known as Reaper Nation). The formation of Majestic Comics with Greydon Square and Joseph Arnold. And the growth of what I consider to be one of the most unique fan bases in music. The vast majority of the fans I have met, laughed with, talked to, debated comic books with, shared experiences and learned from are the type of people that I would hang out with anytime. It’s been your support that has made everything I have been able to do possible. I just know there is so much more on the horizon for this community of Reapers, Rationalists, Misfits, Geeks, and Bad Asses.

My promise to each and everyone of you is to never take your support, kind words, feedback, and comradery for granted. I plan for next year to be even bigger than this one and am looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you. So while this album is entitled “The 6th Extinction”, take it from me. This is not the end. This is still only the beginning.

Special Thanks: Shirley Taylor, Ayieta Crawford, Shevon Taylor, Melik Deal, Barbara Emerson, Aunt Ann (R.I.P.), Napalm Hyru, Clifton Scott, Antonio Mann, Greydon Square, Marisa Holladay, Adekwit, Lady Assassin, Joseph Arnold, Gabriel Sandoval, Jordan Seven Mears, Cindi Raffield, Cyhrus Horbachewsky, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Stan Lee and all of the members of the Reaper Legion and the GUniverse.

Track Name: The 6th Extinction
1st verse
All your apocalyptic dreams you finally gone and done it
it was the idea of living in peace you couldn’t stomach

you could’ve been amongst the stars but you just didn’t want it
rather drop yourself in the abyss to see how far you plummet

it’s kind of funny how this whole planet is silent now
without a sound just like the time when all you apes were not around

you even managed to damage the trees and animals
polluted air and water but all of it’s understandable

it was obvious you’d end this way to everyone except for you
the signs were there but living in denial is just something you do

i walk among the ruins and what’s left is a silent testament
to ignorance violent tendencies and stupid rhetoric

no mythological saviors appeared to pull you from the brink”
the end of you...came as a result of how the fuck you think

and what you valued was everything else except the truth
cause in the end you superstitious ape the devil was you

Congratulations...welcome to The 6th Extinction

2nd verse
None of your superheroes came to save your wicked selves
8 billion little demons sure did raise a lot of hell

their numbers swelled //their tech increased// but none of that could stop the beast
they kept at it consuming all their energy and never ceased

or stopped the feast// in fact it made them hungrier
they turned upon each other like a bloodlusted warmonger

a swarm of locust all holding their smartphones...and texting LOL
busy insulting one another right until they all fell

piles of corpses stacking even higher as the years went on
co2 filling the air making the temperature get warm

and they couldn’t even work together long enough to stop the tide
money more important than survival till they fucking died

I always knew you’d never make it to type one
Your obstacles too high for you to get over type dumb

you stupid humans flirted with pandemics
man forget it your extinction basically was nothing but academic
Track Name: No More Messiahs Feat Napalm Hyru
1st verse
you’re good at putting all these people on a pedestal...except for you
it’s nothing new.. i guess you think the bottom has a better view

they see you all as miniscule...savage masses….pitiful
inconsequential only useful when it’s time to make a move

obvious but still you fooled...slave to every word they say
election time you gather in your masses just to yell hurrah

conditions seem to stay the same regardless of their promises
the problem is you seemed conditioned loving all the drama its

painfully apparent that you roll on with the current
even if the water’s filthy you drink it with no determent

it’s that cult of personality all they gotta do is spew
everything they think you wanna hear because you’re gullible

but I refuse to stand with you... cause honestly I’ve had enough
your brains are little god machines making up this stupid stuff

and you can’t even see your selves much too caught up in your nature
waiting for a great emancipator…..but fuck that

Chorus:
No more messiahs….no more liars
no more kingdoms and no more sires

no more fuckers faking like they so pious
and no more excuses for your brain to retire


2nd verse
I see you falling for that charismatic nonsense
so caught up in delivery that you don’t hear the content

he could’ve made a bomb threat….he could have said most anything
but you ain’t hearing nothing cause his tone just makes your head swing

it’s actions over rhetoric but dummies will not get it yet
they do what you allow and look at all the things that ya'll will let

and even if they saying all of those things and you agree with him
don’t ever let your guard down long enough where you believe in him

see the main issue with our species is that we quick to fall down on our knees
we just suspend our disbelief for these celebrities

as long as they appealing to our basest emotions
we’ll walk right in those ovens with our eyes wide open

and it’s been this way since way back in the tribal shit
in fact we still in tribes that’s all a country or a nation is

and everything around you is still holding to that paradigm
they’ll take advantage of it and it fools your asses every time

I don’t want



Chorus:
No more messiahs….no more liars
no more kingdoms and no more sires

no more fuckers faking like they so pious
and no more excuses for your brain to retire

Napalm:
HERE YE!! HERE YE!! COME ONE COME ALL/HERE'S ANOTHER ELECTED OFFICIAL TERM TO RISE & FALL
/LIES WAS TOLD, PROMISES MADE, EVENTUALLY BROKE/NONE OF THAT SHIT HAD MATTERED ONCE THEY GOT YOUR VOTE
/SAME, ISSUES CONTINUE, THEY AIN'T DOING SHIT ABOUT IT/BY THE TIME YOU REALIZE IT, YOUR MONEY ALL IN THEIR POCKETS
/SAYING, "WE THE PEOPLE.....", CLAIMIN' WE ALL EQUAL/THEY STEADILY GETTING RICH, WHILE WE LIVING WEEK TO WEEK SO
/SPARE ME THE SONG & DANCE ABOUT HOW THINGS WILL CHANGE/WHEN THE SAME ONES POLICING US, WANNA SPLATTER OUR BRAINS
/I'M SO SICK OF THE GAMES & SO SICK OF THE LIES/THE PHRASE MEANINGLESS WHEN THEY SAYING "VOTE OR DIE"
/I VOTE FOR Y'ALL TO DIE CUZ I REALLY DESPISE/Y'ALL TAXIN' US, BUT NOTHING'S BEING DONE WITH THE TITHES
/TIRED OF FAKE SPEECHES ABOUT OUR NEEDS & WANTS/
CUT IT OUT, IT'S ONLY ONE THING THAT I NEED OR WANT AND THAT'S.....
Track Name: Legacy
1st verse
I noticed a lot of you are only rapping for the sake of rapping
but I take my time to craft my rhymes so they can make things happen

culture shifter// supposed to lift ya// straight out your conditions
that’s depending if you really open up your mind to listen

a higher calling than talking about how much i'm balling
and trying to prove that I’m the best of all has got me yawning

it sound so small when these larger issues are haunting
and artists used to tackle those but now all i can see is flaunting

rappers apathetic..that’s probably why they rap pathetic
but it’s just a waste of time to argue some will never get it

for them it’s all about the shine when they spit a rhyme
and never give a thought about the healing of these broken minds

I guess it’s just a sign of the times that we living in
when decadence becomes a culture that’s all that they valuing

but they can do them..it’s really just my observation
I carve my own path to navigate through all the devastation

chorus:
sometimes I wonder about my legacy
and if I was to die today would anyone remember me

would they play my songs would they hum the melody
would they share my thoughts across the world for everyone to see

2nd verse
this could be my final album.. anytime my death could come
from out of nowhere... unexpected... eternal rested... dead and done

what impression have I left them….did I inspire anyone
could I provoke someone to think beyond where they had started from

did I promote intolerance….Or hatred with a violent wit
Will someone credit me for their degree they earned with scholarships

Will anyone acknowledge it... or feel the need to play my songs
Dissecting every single bar to prove that what I said was wrong

will I be seen as monstrous with an image that’s preposterous
and music only fit to be the sound of some obnoxious twit

would enemies remember me as the father of sin
will fans in their nostalgia see me better than i’ve been

or will they claim malevolence then seek to have my songs erased
or will someone pick up the torch from me to carry in my place

don’t want my kids to face my shadow that they can’t escape
just like an anchor wrapped around their waist that drowns them from the weight
Track Name: Anti-Hero
1st verse

Don't see me as that cookie cutter do-gooder you’re used to
I’m rough around the edges break the rules only to speak truth

and it’s never in the format that’s designed to make you comfortable
for those that's criticizing my methods I've had enough of you

I’m rocking no capes, no catch phrases or smiley faces
no tolerance for your ignorant statements and zero patience

for the bullshit that ya’ll stay with...so I attack it frequently
with no cut cards cause you frauds be lacking decency

in fact don’t even speak to me..i’m busy on my mission to make things
the way they need to be….. a vigilante secretly…

moving unseen and uninhibited unrestrained so I’m not limited
in the ways that justice is distributed

I watched the way you picketed...and stood outside marching with your little signs
wasting time but nothing changed or ended it

desperate times call for desperate measures if you not about it
They gonna shrug their shoulders no matter how loud you go and shout it

Chorus:
They can make a pretty speech
(and it’d be all lies)

But when I speak the truth
(these people want me tongue tied)

Sometimes the rules are weak
(because they help the wrong side)

So fuck the good guys...i’d rather be an anti-hero

2nd verse:
see this is how the problem starts……...the evil villains all at large
but get away with everything because the villains are in charge

and you get mad at me cause my language you feel is sub par
but somehow can’t get angry at people that keep you down huh?

it’s crazy cause the lazy ones will use this language everyday
but do it to a beat and watch them curse you for the things you say

censor all of your thoughts even if they feel the same way
or book you for a show but then get scared and say you can't play

my music is my anger manifested flowing constantly
and just because you’re NOT enraged it don’t mean something's wrong with me

it means that something’s wrong with you..or maybe everything is cool
and you don’t mind the things that’s going on cause you’re a fucking fool

I think you’re too accepting of the fuckery... shenanigans
so when I overturn the applecart you start the panicking

imagine if..men not scared of conflict starting vanishing
you wouldn’t fight to save your life you'd stand there like a manikin

Chorus:
They can make a pretty speech
(and it’d be all lies)

But when I speak the truth
(these people want me tongue tied)

Sometimes the rules are weak
(because they help the wrong side)

So fuck the good guys...i’d rather be an anti-hero

3rd verse:
now there's a time for conversation but there's a time for getting gritty
And shooting arrows to their face yelling "you have failed this city"

You can dance around these issues diplomatic you want to
but the villains not respecting that shit and they will stunt on you

spit a crazy monologue about how they’re above the law
because the world just needs to die and they’re the ones to do it all

while everything around you falls and you’re succumbing to your fear
the last thing that you hear is his laughter that’s ringing in your ears

fuck that I’m coming through blazing two gun gripping
Clip em put the bad guy in the ground all while he was ego tripping

then go out the fire escape and dash down the alleyway
while dodging the police helicopters that want to make me pay

ignoring all discussions bout tactics and repercussions
fuck em this the only justice I know because the system bluffing

and if you really knew what I know...you’d do the same thing
to every preaching, fake politician that tried to play king



Chorus:
They can make a pretty speech
(and it’d be all lies)

But when I speak the truth
(these people want me tongue tied)

Sometimes the rules are weak
(because they help the wrong side)

So fuck the good guys...i’d rather be an anti-hero
Track Name: On My Own
1st verse
i had to learn the hard way that people are not genuine
an expert at this lone wolf status now I’m a veteran

this won’t be some stupid rant bout who I think I’m better then
just need to get something out my system that’s an impediment

loyalty’s a rare commodity that’s short in stock you see
and modesty’s become non existent right there with honesty

a part of me has been through so much bullshit in my life
that my mind has been conditioned to smell when something not right

now I’m quicker to identify... those that ain’t real do or die
when I sense it I put some distance between the crew and I

cause i don’t have no time for that shit..or inconsistent stints
i’m 46….no way I’m playing even a little bit

understand that everyone don’t do this for the same reason
rolling solo means that i ain’t marching with the same legion

that’s why i formed the Reaper Legion now I’m doing fine
cause how can I control a situation if it ain’t mine

chorus:
no offense this is what I represent
if you can’t show respect for that
I guess I’ll just go on my own

I’ve never been the one to stop what I’m doing
if it’s not what I’m pursuing
guess I’ll just go on my own

if you ain’t got your own you’re a slave
my commitment never change
so I guess I’ll just go on my own

I’ll never let you question my worth
I’ll just go do what I was doing at first
and that was on my own

2nd verse:
maybe my curse is that….i always think the worse in fact
I’m quick to pull the plug on a situation no looking back

but there’s a price to pay if you linger on with dysfunction
you’d be better off just leaving conditions that’s not wanted

you can still be cool with people and things..no need to beef with them
if they ain’t chasing that brass ring...why do you need them than

Imma go getter….never been only a rhyme spitter
some are bitter cause i don’t associate with blind quitters

if it fit ya maybe you should do some self reflection
stop that half ass stepping on those things you say you’re repping

put some effort in it... see what it does
just be prepared cause the ones that’s scared to do it never give you the love

yo you can fly a lot higher without anchors on your ankles
they will suck up everything you ever gave and never thank you

Then look at you like you spiteful now you wrong and they pissed
But I'm a boss and I'm in charge you don't like then split

Chorus:
no offense this is what I represent
if you can’t show respect for that
I guess I’ll just go on my own

I’ve never been the one to stop what I’m doing
if it’s not what I’m pursuing
guess I’ll just go on my own

if you ain’t got your own you’re a slave
my commitment never change
so I guess I’ll just go on my own

I’ll never let you question my worth
I’ll just go do what I was doing at first
and that was on my own
Track Name: Necessary Evil
1st verse:
I learned a lot of lessons in this long life
like there’s nobody that’s keeping track when you do right

all they seem to remember is when they think you’re wrong
no matter the instrument playing... it’s the same song

it doesn’t matter who you with you really all alone
just because you lay your head there don’t make that place your home

reality brutal….it steps in and takes its toll
believe what you’re shown and never what the fuck you’re told

everything you don’t do...shining like a beacon
any words you’re speaking get’s twisted until you’re weakened

if you gon be the bad guy..regardless of the outcome
you might as well embrace it it’s something you’ll never outrun

labeled as a villain? Stop tripping it’s just a title
their opinions are not vital...they use it to be spiteful

believe me I done seen me an eyeful
the world will aim at you like the scope on a rifle
and say that you’re trifle

Chorus
there’s such a thing as necessary evil
Cause they will violate you expect you to be peaceful

sometimes you gotta do what you want so fuck people
if anybody crosses that line then get lethal

2nd verse:
when there’s a narrative that’s rolling around that says you ain’t shit
there’s some real life repercussions you gon deal with

and you gonna feel this
every time you walk inside a store and they follow you thinking you about to steal shit

or when you riding down the road
then stopped by another suspicious officer that that thinks the car was stole

they’ll shoot your baby boy dead in the street
and tell the world “he wasn’t an angel….more like a beast
you should have heard the way he talked back….disturbing the peace
and when I asked him for his id...I think that he reached”

watch them say that he was justified…..and ya’ll will agree
that’s why i know it’d be the same if that shit happened to me

they gonna pull my album covers...then point and say see
looks mean he’s exactly what we said he would be

so when they say that I’m the bad guy I laugh and i shrug
no matter how legal I’m living they gonna say I’m a thug
fuck em

Chorus:
there’s such a thing as necessary evil
Cause they will violate you expect you to be peaceful

sometimes you gotta do what you want so fuck people
if anybody crosses that line then get lethal
Track Name: When Worlds Collide Feat Greydon Square
Tombstone:
for thousands of years we’ve suffered no peers
equals or rivals... none of them can survive around here

we’ve bathed in the blood of enemies that threatened with malice
impaled the heads of kings on spikes... outside of their palace

3 entire civilizations we made them extinct
for trying to circumvent the balance they were gone in a blink

a bonafide galaxy buster... the Reaper Armada
so any nation breaking the rules we’re coming to stomp ya

we are legion...manifestations of purest entropy
Entropic Empire annihilating infinity

we are not death and though those rumors persist
we are the things that make it possible for death to exist

these lower species are specks that we’re not bound to respect
we’d hardly notice them... even with our boots on their necks

warrior class...we are the standard... the epitome
the masters of the massacre loyal to Lord Entropy

Chorus
two empires at polar opposite sides
inevitability that a conflict arise
deadliest armada determines who will survives
when worlds collide
when worlds collide

Greydon Square:
Type 2.7 and ascending
my race crosses light years like they’re inches
it’s quite weird
with our gear we put the fear in the abstracts
Superior tech. Only adhere to math facts
Past that? We’re masters of quadrivium
exponential growth in the interim, few can match that
...imperium for nearly a millennium
peaceful race, but won't give in to anyone
...the upper echelon who bonds with the Lexicon
experts in quintessence, assumptions of us are extra wrong
..the ultimate expression of intelligence
if we can’t learn from it, it’s irrelevant
people of the measurement
mentor of the species that are lesser than
in a thinking war, we expect to win
we personify extropy
Grey of Extropia will modify destiny
without the fly weaponry
Track Name: Keep It Moving Feat Napalm Hyru & Adekwit
Tombstone:

where were you when I was facing frustration
back and forth across the floor pacing
dream chasing told that I was time wasting

fucked up with my mind encased in dark thoughts
while others laughed and tossed darts
leaking blood surrounded by these fucking sharks

I do not recall a time you ever tried to lend a hand
or even sat to help me out and give your thoughts towards a plan

suddenly when things begin to take flight...I see a bit of daylight
you acting like you always had my back right

fuck outta here with all that johnny coming lately shit
no tolerance for it fall back or quickly in your face I’ll spit

who the fuck is this... rolling on me with some stupid owe me list
cancel Christmas// shut the door///you don’t exist

I am unapproachable…. except for those I know is true
and rallied right behind me every time I had a show to do

or dropped some knowledge that inspired me to grow some more
and I don’t have to say their names cause all of them will know the score

Napalm Hyru:

Y'ALL KNOW THE ROUTINE, TOP OF THE MORNING FUCKERS/I GOT ENOUGH DEAD WEIGHT & I DON'T NEED ANOTHER'S/PEOPLE GET IN THEIR FEELINGS & START TALKIN' RECKLESS/GOIN' AT YOUR NECK LIKE THEY FUCKIN' TRYNA STEAL YOUR NECKLACE/TO TELL THE TRUTH, AYO I SAW YA IN DIFFERENT LIGHT/LIKE EXAMININ' HOTEL ROOMS THAT'S UNDER A BLACK LIGHT/I'MA BE THE BIGGER PERSON & NOT PLAY THE "BLAME GAME"/CUZ YOU & I BOTH KNOW, I COULD'VE DONE THE SAME THING/I'MA MAINTAIN, KEEP IT MOVIN'
EXPEDITIOUSLY/NO MORE ATTENTION I WILL PAY YOU, SO IT'S NO NEED TO REQUEST A FEE/AND BASICALLY, IF YOU LIVE GLASS HOUSES, THEN OWN WINDEX/MAKE SURE YOUR SHIT IS CLEAN, BEFORE YA FUCKERZ TRY TO JUDGE THE NEXT/BUT YEAH YOU TRIED IT THO, LEFT ME WITH A COUPLE SCARZ/ONCE TIME HEALED THOSE WOUNDS I HAD TO CONSTRUCT THESE BARZ/ALL IS FORGIVEN, BUT NOT FORGETTIN' THOSE PETTY DEALINGS/NOT BAD FOR MAN WHO ISN'T IN TOUCH WITH HIS FEELINGS.

Adekwit

Drinking this liquor while I'm on my medication
To release the stress, aggression and all the aggrevation
To Hulk smash their opinions about how I won't make it
They can right click scroll down and fucking save it
Cause when I was on my dick
Nobody gave a shit
Before I got back into Hip Hop I was contemplating licks
Driving my civic in the streets
Live, paper chasing
Now I'm dedicated to rhyming niggas saying Im changing?
Damn man, can't seem to satisfy anybody
Should I make my art a business or treat it as a hobby
They don't know about the nights I was sleeping next to my shotty
Funny how I trusted that more than I did anybody
Mad, I don't shout you out
Or get up on your features?
To be honest with you bruh
My nigga I don't need ya
I never asked for a favor
For you to have my back bitch
So keep it moving
I don't owe your ass JACK SHIT!
