about

Just another avant grande attempt saying how my life has changed since January. Lost a job, been trying to gain one, and push through a lot in my world. My mindset is different than it was last time. Plus I was dared to try making music more original that did not rely on samples. Some rules I bent but I felt I used the samples as an instrument to the tracks. I hope you enjoy my best work and I can't wait until you hear more from me in this coming year.

Track Name: Intro
Welcome to a new beginning
Opening your eyes, waking up
With a purpose, now you know
You’re winning, on the surface
I may not have much, but as such
I’m gonna get there
I had my fair share of trouble
And nobody knew what I had seen
Stumble onto the scene, raise a toast tonight
For the unemployed
The pride and joy
Finishing what you started
Never swallowing pride, ride this life
Out until the end with your heart on your sleeve
By the time you leave, you made a difference
Going against tradition, this is what I’m worth
Time for a rebirth, I hope you understand
What I speak, celebrate life at its peak
With ADG…y’all know me
Track Name: Picture This (All Good)
Super Nintendo Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke I couldn’t picture this
Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
Super Nintendo Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke I couldn’t picture this
Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
It’s all good (Ohhhhhhh)
It’s all good

Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
Couldn’t picture couldn’t picture couldn’t picture this
It’s all good
It’s all good

Been unemployed for a little while
Still reflect on the lives I helped for
Some times, mild expectations
Living life but I try to brush it off
And sweep it under
Feels like everybody just forgot about me
Got very few that I trust

How I got here
How I fucking got here
Got to recognize this cruelty
Can’t help but to track these motives
And people telling lies
Did I cause my own demise
Dreams of stardom still bright and shine
Riding out decisions until I get faded
Been joyriding this life all out of my element
Figure out where the hell I’m meant to be
Get the drive back into my common sense
Tryna like the life to live, I’m going from negative
To positive
Is it all good
Is it all good
Track Name: My Potential [Interlude]
I’m doing this for me
Nobody else
This is what I have wanted
Since I’ve been young
Now I got the moves to go
Unlock this potential
Part of my essential
Needs and wants
Can’t you see
I’m fond of my dream
Ain’t gonna have anyone
Take away what I love
Imma do this all day
All night
All day all night
All day all night
All day all night
Track Name: ADG (Definition)
I found my meaning
In these feelings
I inhibit, Gonna stop
Demeaning my ambitions
Cause my limit has gone sadistic
Don’t wanna go ballistic

My heart rules over what’s
Been given, can’t tell me
How I’m supposed to be living

You can try firing me
Say you’re gonna blackball a G
But I finally like to feel free at last, free at last
Been standing on my own
Even if I feel alone, I’m not anymore
My core gonna be shaped to the best man I can be
That you will see out here

Time will be fleeting
Mortality may be creeping
I don’t give a fuck, my thoughts
Are gaining solace, I’m on this
New way of life, growing in my
Bloom for my way
Even with no recognition I won’t dwell on this
Life, strife makes me glisten, I stand independent
Man I feel sufficient in what I got to do to say

That’s the meaning of
That’s the meaning of
That’s the meaning of
That’s the meaning of
That’s the meaning of
That’s the meaning of

ADG y’all know me
ADG y’all know me
ADG y’all know me
Track Name: Home (Part 2)
Questioning my existential
Reason for living
Now I got my feet on the ground
And I don’t beat myself up
About my purpose
Seems like I got a lot to work on
But it’s what I live for, I turnt off
The negative, I focus on that positive
Tonight, tonight
I don’t care what the past said
But I’m present for my future
The blueprint seemed predestined
But I didn’t follow every step, I took
My own course, I’m where I belong, tell them I’m home
Tell them I’m

Home
It’s inside me, I got myself
To thank now that I’m
Back home, I found the
Way to celebrate everything I’m
Not and everything I am
God damn, take a look at the man
And tell em I’m home, I’m home
To finish what I started, now I got
Me myself and I it’s us against the
World so why you got to pick a fight
Doing me to make it right
Right

And I know some things
Will never be the same
Can’t chase memories I could have had
At 16, repeating melodies in my head
Since 19, and I’m almost 22
Got to live my life up, make up for the
Years I never liked myself, gonna help
Everything I’m not and everything I am
Wake up in the morning, hear the song stuck
In my head, singing this to everyone

Homee
I’m home
Home
I’m homeee
Homee
I’m home
Home
I’m homeee
Homee
I’m home
Home
I’m homeee
Track Name: Liberation
Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down

No change to restrain me
Been helping everybody but myself
Just got let go from the place that I called home
But not anymore, been depriving self-lovin
Into my system

Got to rearrange priorities
Got up in responsibilities
See I know I don’t need anyone
Got to do what’s best not second guess
I won’t cry no more, trade in the frown I used to wear
And share my smile upon my face

In liberation
Gonna free myself from this prison
Let the people know I have risen
Above my inner state
In liberation, challenging myself to new ambition
Face a new path I have given
Thank God I just keep on living

Living
Living

Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down
Break the boundaries down

Love or hate me
No middle ground can’t
Break the impossible
I found that I’m unstoppable
My extremes make it
Probable that I will be back, liberating
Minds on my wavelength can be exhilarating
But I shall be invigorating strength to survive
I’ll make it out alive, 20 seconds to reply
Until next time, I’ll catch you at my prime
