Track Name: Now That's Love Feat. Musiq Soulchild and Robert Glasper
1st Verse
It's like water for the body
food for the soul
a feelin' you don't wanna let go
so let go
and stop fightin' it
I even smile when I'm writin' bout it
It's the sun to my thoughts
when clouds try to crowd it
I use to run from it
I use to hide to
I thought it made me soft
plus I was hood to
Its the beat to my heart
so the rhythm of my life can dance in peace at night
I got my style just right
i got my mind just right
I got to tell you bout this thing make everything alright
Momma cookin wit it
Pops teachin wit it
Dub made the track just so i can speak wit it
I got to have it everyday
hour on the hour
Minute by the second if you feel it its a blessin
When ya feelins' get arrested and you aint trynn break free
You've just been touched L.O.V.E.
Now that's love

Chorus
Love me in a special way
What more can I say
Love me now
Repeat

2nd Verse
For the Love
It was never for the bread
It was always bout the passion that turned into a action
That inspired the masses
Never for the dough
If the money wasn't right
He'd sing just to show
How a ribbon in the sky suppose to go
Stevie, the KG's, the Kobe's, the MJ's both of them
We all love them
Serena and Venus B and J the JB's who played for James B
Say it loud
I'm Black and I'm proud of how we all get down when loves around
It's the love for the music that makes me not lose it
My actions is the proof the words get confusing
I was once saul who then turned to Paul
I'm trynna tell all y'all that love conquers all
Kings last speech was deep
He knew he would pass
But he promised L.O.V.E.
Now that's love

Chorus
Love me in a special way
What more can I say
Love me now
Repeat

Bridge
My loved ones
My loved ones
My loved ones
What up to all my loved ones
My loved ones
My loved ones
My loved ones
All I need is my loved ones

Piano Solo

Track Name: Free Dumb (Chains Off)
1st Verse
Loose women mixin' gin sinning
played my cards wrong, I felt like I was winning'
Inning after inning, game after game, chain after chain
My jeweler was insane
Weighing my neck down trynna hold my head up
Fed up with the set up rumors they won't let up
Stuntin' stuntin my growth
I saw no bridge but I did see a moat
Floatin' through the city couple pieces overlapping
Stones set perfect but really it was worthless
Never tucked wear my pride on my chest with no vest
Not stress, runnin' around like Khaled
Like I'm the best, Like, not like the rest, Like
Press like if this flow should be under arrest Like
Blinded by the shine
Locked in the prison of my own mind
The Jesus piece now part of my rhyme, like

Chorus
When I took the Chain Off
[REPEAT]

2nd Verse
Linked up with the Cubans flew in two that was choosin'
The sound of the chains reacting was so soothin'
Real gold fake love, A sight for blind eyes
Kill yourself esteem with no glove
I had one and sometimes three at one time
I think I lived out every one of my rhymes
Not proud but I learned, if you don't take the chains off
One way or another brother, You will learn
Like KRS say, locked up mentally
If you seeking betterment I know that you feelin' me
Its love though, I don't judge I was once you
I'm still in the struggle make a choice what you gon do
Never crush a diamond in a piece, that's a don't do
24k overlay that's what I do
Keep it real, Naw homie keep it right
Security wanna check my chains before the flight like

Chorus
When I took the Chain Off
[REPEAT]

3rd Verse
I was the herringbone caught in that cashmere sweater
The Gucci link that's under that butter soft leather
The diamond link on top of the white tee
The cross that lay on my heart that protects me
Chain on my mind, Chain on my wrist
It's a chain of events that can change and eclipse
Ya spirit, I hear it in ya talk
You gettin' chase by the evils but you damn near caught
But don't do it! You gotta get free
You gotta see how unlocking ya brain is the key
No fee for your soul, you not a G cause you old
Wisdom begins when fear of God is the Mold
Heated in the furnace and bent into shape
When you polished and you shining you admitted in the gates, Enlightened by the shine
Locked in the prison of my own mind
The Jesus piece is now part of my rhyme like

Chorus
When I took the Chain Off
[REPEAT]
