about

This album is the first of 3 volumes. Rise Above, Vol. 1: The Foundation is an international rap & hip hop album created to expose my philosophies, who I am as an artist, my point of view, and my message to inspire others to "Rise Above" the struggle and get to the next level. This is a Chicago Hip Hop & L.A. style album due to the fact that I was raised in Chicago and that is where most of the beginning of this album took place. It also has a Cali flavor due to the fact that the artists that inspired me are mostly all from Los Angeles.

Track Name: I'm iz - The Crowned Abyss
Intro:
Finally he has come and you are not prepared but it is time, for him to shine. get ready. (orale)

Brought by the spark of life,
proceed to live or die.
Never born to tell a lie,
big dreams that I will not deny.
Came straight into this game,
blind folded up in this thang
with nothing but will; no skills,
just a passion to create my name.
Ready to spit some flows
hard work and thirst here it goes.
What you hear is what I've earned
not born with talent, not my concern
I'm here to elevate,
so I must concentrate.
It's time to raise the bar
and go far, for that I meditate.
So I continue to spits flows
as I continue to grow,
and time flies as i grind
while your music is getting old.
It sounds like the same lyrics
written and spitten' from different rappers all I'm seeing
is you making music go backwards.
It's my turn to put my time.
It's time to put forth my shine.
You know that I'm 'bouts to get mine.
Won't stop till the day that I die.
Proceed to head to the throne &
I'm in it for my city so let's get it on.
You don't know what I've been through to get through to build momentum, & break this beat to tell them that:

Hook:
I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this,
I'm the one and only,
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
I - I - I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this
I'm the one and only
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz

Yo man I'm ill B to the streets
homie what you know about me.
I'm on a roll, I'm on my grind
Go hard like a killa G.
Reppin my home city,
south side of the streets of the chi,
but I was taken away
and I won't deny
the pain I gained but I will still rise,
cuz the hood is still in me
and it's growing in size you see.
Gotta let it out
in lyrical disguise
you know that I'm all about it G
can't tie me up, I will still set me free,
like a sleeping beast up in these streets.
I lived a life where sounds of heat
were a part of nature,
so i won't be beat.
I refuse to fall to the ground.
Refuse to run from these hounds,
will not retreat from these clowns,
from city to city I will hold it down.
Respects to the underground,
I'm here to break the ground;
deliver these lyrics like thunder sounds
and what ever is on top,
I'm bringing it down.
Veterans been looking for change
with my generation that came.
From now you will know my name
running deep in this game
Now the Army is trained
Global hip hop in this thang,
Musica Abusiva now backed my name,
Kartel Kyntero is feeling the same,
anyone on the way will be left fully maimed.

I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this,
I'm the one and only,
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
I - I - I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this
I'm the one and only
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz

I'm iz the crowned abyss,
an unstoppable force.
Lean forward but watch yourself;
this movement is heavily endorsed
by the streets and elites that pack heat,
so let me tell you what it means,
to be birth from the abyss.
I had nothing,
it started from a thought up in the void;
the idea I planned to create and deploy.
From my mind to your ears,
a dream that you can see, feel, and hear.
It took time but I'm geared, will never show any fear.
And I'm facing all obstacles to build it all up in here.
with no money in my pockets,
I've given more than what I've earned.
So what exactly is your concern,
and your attempts to end my term.
What I have right here
will show you how to create something from nothing.
Success out of energy,
created with nothing but positive vibes.
It started all out of my mind, I'm never blind.
Thoughts are things,
so don't plan to penalize my infinite mind.
Ideas are what I create,
something that doesn't suit your kind cuz

I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this,
I'm the one and only,
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
I - I - I'm iz Yo Homeboi Julius C
and I put it down like this
I'm the one and only
I'm the crowned abyss
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Cu - cuz I'm iz
Track Name: Y'all remember me
Intro:
Yea, I just wanted to say, after all these years, I've remained the same, if you see me, don't hesitate to shake my hand, time passes, but here I am.

Hook 1:
Y'all remember me,
i'm Yo Homeboi Julius C,
made moves for town and my city,
y'all remember me,
I'm the one and only one,
showed love to your heart and you dissed it, y'all remember me,
I brought opportunity to your life that's right and you missed it
Y'all remember me, you will, You Will
You Will remember me.

Verse 1:
y'all remember them days way back up in the hood. the land of the struggle, not the land of the free but the home of the brave. the home meant for me. where I began every dream. in the midst of the struggles. the gangs, the violence. seeing all these kids in need; a lead from within. as I dreamed very big, bigger than imagination. it was at the start of my creation, when I had nothing, but ideas. ideologies shaping me straight from within. it was the reason for my actions and the path I stepped in. through the use of every bit art that I could get grasp on, to gather those around with their eyes and their ears, I united this earth with their lives and their peers. entomology, theatrical art, music and much more
it was the start of my show,
I wanted others to grow, and learn what it takes to be safe and be great at what their thoughts create.

Hook 2:
Y'all remember me,
i'm Yo Homeboi Julius C,
made moves for town and my city,
y'all remember me,
I'm the one and only one,
showed love to your heart and you dissed it, y'all remember me,
I brought opportunity to your life that's right and you missed it
Y'all remember me, you will, You Will
You Will remember me.

Verse 2:
You remember the first days, when we first met. it was a crush, and I was shy. yet you stole my heart, it was theft. and it felt good, as I gathered my thoughts, so I can tell you how I feel, about you entering my heart. never had the right chance, never had the right time, when it was time for me to step up, I was taken
away. all my dreams were shattered and the visions with you vanished.
what I really needed depleted,
if only you knew that I tried to make it happen, I really tried to retrieve it and conceive it till the end.
but my one shot was spent, now that years have flown by
I can still hear you and see you, but you act like we never met. like I've done something wrong, girl I'm sorry that I left.
and if I sing you this song, it's because all these years
it's what I meant to say
living in fear searching for the one in my tomorrow
thinking of you like it was yesterday, wanting to ask you do you remember me too?

Bridge:
All this pain that i can't reveal
all this time that flies and it can't stay still.
time is what I cherish the most, but it's done it's worst. like the time that girl filled me with lies. left for another guy
that she got pregnant by. since that day I've remained alone, living in solitude my heart was really gone. yet their wondering why i've lived so alone, but really I want stop to get a chance to ask if

(Hook 3)
Y'all remember me,
i'm Yo Homeboi Julius C,
made moves for town and my city,
y'all remember me,
I'm the one and only one,
showed love to your heart and you dissed it, y'all remember me,
I brought opportunity to your life that's right and you missed it
Y'all remember me, you will, You Will
You Will remember me.

Verse 3:
Till this day I stand moving forward until my very last breath. as long as i'm breathing. I'm gonna take another step. Never fall to my knees nor remain in my comfort zone. I'm here to learn and grow. yes it be uncomfortable. you say you love
and care about me
then why you in my way
when I try to achieve,
never said it will be easy, I will bleed to succeed. cuz I'm walking with you in my way with a sword facing me, don't expect me to stop. no no my heart will never drop.
you don't understand my vision, you aint seen what I've seen, you dont see me giving you suggestions bout your expertise, let me be me, after all I'm the one in this family
that gets paid to speak. knowledge is what I seek.
those that follow and lead, blessings they will receive, from the harvests that we did, and to the rest I will tell you,
I achieve what I speak. take a look here I am so

Hook 4:
Y'all remember me,
i'm Yo Homeboi Julius C,
made moves for town and my city,
y'all remember me,
I'm the one and only one,
showed love to your heart and you dissed it, y'all remember me,
I brought opportunity to your life that's right and you missed it
Y'all remember me, you will, You Will
You Will remember me.
