There's a war going on inside so either help me win it
Or suck my dick and take a selfie with it
Praying For a River by Soul Khan 16

We are fucking our lives up and need to reclaim our humanity rather than just photograph superficial instants of it.

This ain't a uniform
It's my body to the belly with it
So pour another shot of belvy in it
Praying For a River by Soul Khan 16

Everything I do involves the least amount of fronting or pretense I can manage. Reward me with drinks, please.

You wanna be grassroots
That's cool, but cash rules everything around
So your dream's on consignment

You claiming independent like it's july 4th
But you pay for them to spin it, what do you lie for
Make me wanna hit you with a fucking two-by-four
'til it's sticking out your head like a unicorn

There is a myth that the music industry is democratized. That’s bullshit. It has just been restructured with the appearance of such a reformation. All good, though. Everybody who wins has an ace up their sleeve, no matter what they tell you. I don’t blame them for that. I blame the folks who pretend like the shit doesn’t exist.

I'm tryina make a movement
Like warith deen mohammed
And it ain't gonna move if the machine ain't behind it
Praying For a River by Soul Khan 16

Warith Deen Mohammed was the Imam who disbanded the Nation of Islam and reformed it as a Sunni Islamic movement. That’s not to say I agree with everything the man said or that I’m converting to Islam (NO THANKS KENYAN PRESIDENT OBAMA), but it suited the rhyme scheme, simile, and intent of the line.

But wait, uh-oh, what’s this “machine” I speak of? Stay tuned til the next annotation.

The same hand I used to try to reach for the sky with
Just found a black box with a piece of the pilot
Praying For a River by Soul Khan 16

I used to be so darn ambitious until that ambition led me to discover the ruins of predecessors and other people whose ambitions compromised or destroyed them.

Son, I'm here to bring a lil bit of heat to the climate
That you could hold forever like the peace of the silent
Praying For a River by Soul Khan 16

Just a more elegant way to say that I spit hot fire with the hopes that you appreciated it forever. “Peace of the silent” refers to the traditional Christian wedding ceremony expression, “Speak now or forever hold your peace.”

Words are a weapon, so I cut through the jargon.
If you reap what you sow, then I uproot the garden.
Khangregation by Soul Khan 9

I am a sword, and the bullshit is a thin piece of flesh. Additionally, I not only want the fruits of my labor, I want the soil in which it grows, errythang.

The fuck you done started, from that one-room apartment?
Now this shit is too heavy for just one spool of Charmin.
Khangregation by Soul Khan 9

Ok, to be fair, I also still live in a one-room apartment but it’s beautiful, but it’s just a metaphor for a humble beginning and now this “shit,” meaning what I’ve got going in music is bigger than I can cover with one stool-wipe.

Decorated with ladies cause I come chew the carpet.
A gentleman excelling in the "fuck you" department.

Cunninlingus is in the skill set, as is being a rudebwoy. C'mon rudebwoy.

So, motherfuck who a problem, I'mmma sun, moon, and star 'em,
For the junk you been talkin', I'mma crush you to carbon.
Khangregation by Soul Khan 9

Beyond simply “sonning” someone, I “sun, moon, and star” them, suggesting I just shit all over them, while still providing a celestial backdrop that’s just beautiful.
