Track Name: Libations
LIBATIONS - Lyrics

Verse:

We gotta bless this function before we get this jumping off
Invoking our ancestors and all the great loved ones we've lost
Fill up my cup yeah, gonna pour out some liquor
And call on the great ones for them to be with us

Change:

We got the spirit so high in this celebration, you got me feeling so nice when we pour libations
Ago-Ame Call'em out: Imhotep (Ashe), Queen Tiye (Ashe), Malcolm X (Ashe), Say it with pride
Spiritual force that's my Ashe, can I proceed - open the way: Sojourner Truth (Ashe), Martin King (Ashe), Harriet Tubman (Ashe), and Drew Ali (Ashe)
We respect your knowledge, and we seek your wisdom
We invoke your presence to protect & guide

Hook:

We got the spirit so high in this celebration, and you can feel those good vibes when we pour libations

Rap Verse:

Pour out a little liquor for the homes we honor only the real G's not phony's
If you don't know the culture you would think it was baloney, but I can feel the spirit vibrating all on me
Open the way to the spirit world then we communicate with the one's we love
And take advise from the wise one's and then I say Ashe "So Let It Be Done"
And your the evolution of your lineage, all my ancestors live within me ever present
Gotta thank Creator as the source of all our blessings, I let it be known homie I don't walk alone

Change:

We really need your advise in this situation, we're gonna call on your light when we pour libations
We got the spirit so high, can you feel it, Can you feel those good vibes when we pour libations
Ago-Ame Call'em out: Imhotep (Ashe), Queen Tiye (Ashe), Malcolm X (Ashe), Say it with pride
Spiritual force that's my Ashe, can I proceed - open the way: Sojourner Truth (Ashe), Martin King (Ashe), Harriet Tubman (Ashe), and Drew Ali (Ashe)

AFRICAN GIRLS - Lyrics

Hook:

African girls are the worlds diamonds and pearls, I love them african girls
With braids, dread locks, or curls, I love them African girls
I'd offer you the world, cause I love them African girls
Pecan, mocha, chocolate, swirl, I love them african girls

Verse:

Nothing in this world is better than you, thats why I'm gonna stay true
There's no one in this world I need by my side, more than my African bride
And there's nothing more precious than for me to come home to your African smile
Nothing more that I long for than to see you give birth to my African child
Just wanna kiss you I'll never ids you, I'll ride with you till the day I go die
Continental or diaspora I ain't mad at ya I'm your biggest fan for life
Though it's been rough don't give up on us, once we rebuild the trust we gone live it up so nice

Change:

I know how to treat you right, so don't you give up on us your beauty's so glorious
I'm so serious, girl I wanna love you up
And I just want you to know, Oh !

Hook:

African girls are the best in all the world, I love them african girls
I can't get enough of your love un huh
African girls are the worlds diamonds and pearls, I love them african girls
With braids, dread locks, or curls, I love them African girls
You really rock my world, I love them African girls
Pecan, mocha, chocolate, swirl, I love me some african girls

Verse:

Brown skin red bone all yawl get it, midnight black with melanin riches
Long hair short hair don't care real, E. Badu's or Manage Nikki's
Senegambian girls dance so wicked, Ethiopian girls so exquisite
Aw them Ugandans all them my darlins, nigeria and congo priceless you don't know
Queens of Zimbabwe, Kenya, Morocco, Haiti, Jamaica ya'll got the vibe oh
Girls from Sudan exotic and virtuous, Mali and Somalia all pretty flowers
Colombia, Brazil, oh Venezuela all them are gorgeous muy bonita
From New York to Cali there's no competitors, love them girls that made in America

Change:

I know how to treat you right, so don't you give up on us your beauty's so glorious
I'm so serious, I just wanna win your love
And lady there's no better prize, and thats why
I'ma be a better man honey can we start again, I'ma give you all my love, baby will it be enough
I just wanna feel your touch, girl I wanna eat you up
And this ones for my African Girls

SOURCE LOVE - Lyrics


1st Verse:

Oh I'm taking my mind, on a little journey to a land before time
I've heard legends about, civilized nations along the white and blue nile
They were people of the river, they were living off the land
In balance and harmony, as the original woman and man
I hear the rhythm of the drums, though I was born in the western world
Calling me to where I'm from, return of the prodigal son (her daughters and sons)
Yeah I gotta get my culture, my medicine my talismans
Though I was raised in America, I'm proud to be an African

Hook:

Source Lovin
Is when we trace it back to the source where it all began
Source Lovin
Ain't no better love to be had than to know who I am
Source Lovin
The knowledge of self is the wealth that I never will spend
Source Lovin
A tree without roots is a stick blowing in the wind

2nd Verse:

Yeah the journey's been long, shackled up in the trans-atlantic trade
And they had to be strong, brought to the new world to be slaves
Not regarded as human, they had to struggle all their days
Re-made in America, and still they found GOD through the pain
Mama taken by force, now the white man's blood in my veins
Thats a consequence of war, and another part of me I must claim
We all gotta face our demons to figure out how we got here
Set free by the truth yeah, and now I can see it so clear

Hook:

Source Lovin
Is when we trace it back to the source where it all began
Source Lovin
Ain't no better love to be had than to know who I am
Source Lovin
The knowledge of self is the wealth that I never will spend
Source Lovin
A tree without roots is a stick blowing in the wind

3nd Verse:

All the answers I seek, could never come from a doctrine
And I'm searching so deep, trying to find heaven within
The world is telling me, Creator lives somewhere above
But I found it in the Life, found it in the Truth, Found it in the Light and Love
Something greater animates everything I see
Oh she's living in you, oh he's living in me
From you I get my birth right, and back into you I devolve
And I know that I'll be alright, knowing the CREATOR is ALL

Hook:

Source Lovin
Is when we trace it back to the source where it all began
Source Lovin
Ain't no better love to be had than to know who I am
Source Lovin
The knowledge of self is the wealth that I never will spend
Source Lovin
A tree without roots is a stick blowing in the wind

Adlibs:
Talking about source loving, tap into the force of lovin

Hook:
