[Amerigo Gazaway: Verse 1] Let’s go, back with the force of thousand men Cop the new album for less than a thousand yen And vibe to it, cruise in your ride to it Ain’t nobody else that can do it like I do it kid See I ain’t the type to pull them things out, But when I kick a rhyme it might just blow your brains out A lot of rap is wack, I ain’t calling names out They fell off, kinda funny, ain’t it strange how Money changes situation Flip and rearrange the whole equation I’m so ill with it they can’t even deal with it Won’t stop ‘til my crew number one in the nation Ayo, I don’t really think they know who they up against Anytime Amerigo & Po linkin up again (facts) It’s guaranteed, solid, 10 out of 10 Go head, share it, blog it, tell a couple friends [Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] One time for the people in front, gettin’ crunk Here to give you what you want One time for the people in the back Hands up, let me see you, where you at? And one time for the people on the side Looking shy, is you really trying to vibe? And one time for the haters And anybody whoever said that we’d never make it Napoleon Da Legend: Verse 2] Out for the bag and a mountain of cash We out back, in the yard and we counting the stash The early bird’ll get the worm, so we learned to be fast  Cause the last shall be the first and the first shall be last Catch whiplash, when you see the whip drive past  They heard the last album I dropped they quit that fast  We some dream chasers switch up my street got new neighbors  Every other week we dropping a new flava  True playa for real, ask somebody who knows I got name that rings bells with somebody you know  That was a style for last year, now I got a new flow  Was in the rear now I’m stepping at the front of the row  Known as the incredible phenomenal king Never playing small games I ain’t time for these things We master plan it mash planet we outlandish  Stamp it, seal it and brand it, I’m a champion [Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] One time for the people in front, gettin’ crunk Here to give you what you want One time for the people in the back Hands up, let me see you, where you at? And one time for the people on the side Looking shy, is you really trying to vibe? And one time for the haters And anybody whoever said that we’d never make it Amerigo Gazaway: Verse 3] It ain’t even a question man they already know Every single mic that I touch turns into gold I don’t ever hold a grudge or wish death to my foes I just show ‘em to the door like when the register closed Yo, don’t let it hit ya where the sun don’t shine Sometimes you gotta let go of folks and cut those ties I love music and I do it with the upmost pride Now get live, let me hear you say it one more time [Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] One time for the people in front, gettin’ crunk Here to give you what you want One time for the people in the back Hands up, let me see you, where you at? And one time for the people on the side Looking shy, is you really trying to vibe? And one time for the haters And anybody whoever said that we’d never make it

[Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] Everybody get live if you up in the place Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Better watch what you say when you speakin’ my name So don’t trip, listen y’all we ain’t playin Anybody out there who still think it’s a game Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Bout to set the record straight on a couple of things So don’t trip, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ [Amerigo Gazaway: Verse 1] Nah, I ain’t playin’ with y’all I put my heart into everything I say in these bars This sh*t hard bruh, damn we be puttin’ in work Mad a lot of sacrifices but it could have been worse Preach, yo I think we ‘bout to take ‘em to church I get a rush everytime I’m creating a verse It’s transformative, got mixtapes but I can’t tour with it So that’s when I picked up a mic and started recording it ‘Cuz life is more than just workin’ a job 9 to 5, wake up everyday cursin’ your boss Still exhausted from the grind, ain’t no time to recharge But we won’t stop until the prize is finally ours Yo, we’ve come too far to turn back now Nieghbors bangin’ on the door like ‘”Will you turn that down?!’ Cuz real emcees now are nowhere to be found I thought I told y’all before, we ain’t playin’ around [Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] Everybody get live if you up in the place Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Better watch what you say when you speakin’ my name So don’t trp, listen y’all we ain’t playin Anybody out there who still think it’s a game Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Bout to set the record straight on a couple of things So don’t trip, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ [Dillon: Verse 2] No jokes no games it’s dead serious All red leather like Eddie Murphy, ‘Delirious’ I’m that luxurious, the jury is out My business is all I got time to worry about I doubt anybody owes me a debt, ‘cause I collect I ain’t doing the show until they show me a check And when I step off the stage, straight back to the lab We can do the after party while I’m packing my bag I spent enough time acting a fool I had to level up so I could flex my spectacular tools I used to wish I was official then I earned my stripes I was lurking, waiting for my turn to strike I’ve got a style you’re gonna learn to like, I’m not leaving I’ll be doing drop after drop ‘til I stop breathing I’m on the grind ‘til I lay in the ground I thought I told y’all before we ain’t playin’ around [Amerigo Gazaway: Hook] Everybody get live if you up in the place Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Better watch what you say when you speakin’ my name So don’t trip, listen y’all we ain’t playin Anybody out there who still think it’s a game Don’t get it twisted, listen y’all we ain’t playin’ Bout to set the record straight on a couple of things So don’t trip, listen y’all we ain’t playin’

about

Cavendish Archive and Soul Mates Records are pleased to announce the upcoming release of ‘Cavendish Reimagined: Amerigo Gazaway Edition’ - a sun-soaked, soulful collection of golden age hip-hop sampled entirely from '60s and '70s records from the Boosey & Hawkes and Cavendish Music archive. Produced and performed by Amerigo Gazaway of Soul Mates Records, with additional rap performances from a range of lyricists including Napoleon Da Legend, Dillon and Awon.

Listen to the lead single 'We Ain't Playin' (feat. Dillon), pre-order the digital/CD and stay tuned for the full album dropping 6/7/24.

“As a record collector and hip-hop producer, I’ve always had a special affinity for library and production music from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s (especially the Boosey & Hawkes collection, which many of us DJs and sample hunters have become familiar with on our digging expeditions). While most library records are originally made with the intention of being used in film soundtracks, commercials and TV, they have also become an endless source of inspiration and sample material for some of hip-hop’s greatest producers and crate diggers.

Library music holds a special place in my heart, because I believe it often possesses a certain level of artistic freedom, musicianship, and an experimental quality rarely found in other more traditional forms of music. These were players and artists who were not attempting to make pop radio ‘hits’ - instead they were trying to enhance the overall emotional and narrative elements of the stories being told on-screen.

So when Cavendish Music reached out to me to see if I wanted to delve into their infinitely vast catalog, it was like a producer’s ‘dream come true’ and an offer I couldn’t refuse. To make things a little more interesting, I challenged myself to write original rap lyrics for each track and enlisted a handful of my favorite emcees and collaborators to join me for the ride. I hope you enjoy the results!”
