Track Name: The J.U.S. Evolution - "Old Skool, New Skool"
Old School, New School

Chorus Only (4x)

Let's Take it back to the old school
then bring it on round to the new school

Verse 1

Old School, New School class is in session
Kane had the tightest flow in Half Steppin
88 flow with a destiny
spray painting on walls till they arrested me
Now Jaheim makes chicks take their draws off
the first to do it was Luther Vandross
And after Beastie Boys
Vanilla Ice Destroyed
Now Eminem, finally the real Mckoy
The Four baddest chicks I thought was Envouge
Until I saw Destiny's Child
they said No
And after all that about Hammer going broke
Now rappers do more
they sell food and clothes
You never thought Hip-Hop would be enormous
10 billion dollars
10 years fast forward
Aretha was the queen
sprinkled over to Alicia Keys
From MC Lyte to Eve

Chorus Only (4x)

Let's Take it back to the old school
then bring it on round to the new school

Verse 2

Biz Mark ain't got nothing on ODB
Now Mixtape DJ's own the streets
Flash and Starsky, Jam Master J
Now it's Funkmaster Flex, Clue & Kay Slay
Uptown locations had the latest dance
people harlem shaking doing the running man
from boys 2 men
now to B2K
It was Paula Abdul
Now Jennifer Lope
Music Soulchild was like Donnie Hathaway
Stevie Wonder don't compare
cause he was the great
Tina Turner now forward to Mary J
Aaron Hall to R K
Mr. Bigs Compadre
grab a pen and pad while I take you to school
and break it down from the old to the new
every artist grows up with an idol
whether you seperate it or not
it recycles

Breakdown:
Old School
You need a lesson
New School
Take it on back
Bring it on round

Verse 3

Follow me on a path
It’s a lot to see
All you need is a forty
No Criss or Belvy
Easy E and Dre came with the format
The west coast originated gangster rap
Roberta Flack you can hear the soul in Lauryn Hill
Jackson Five no compare to Soul 4 Real
It’s electric when these lights black out
I’m known to throw it down like Jerry Stackhouse
Before the Pathfinders
Now it’s a Hummer
TLC, 3L groups… Too many numbers
Every sample got a thousand hits
Till the government tears down the house & cribs
New Kids On The Block
Now to Nsync
Now it’s Diamonds
Before Ropes and Links
Remember Fat boys
Remember Heavy D
Chubb Rock
To The Notorious B.I.G.

Chorus Only (4x)

Let's Take it back to the old school
then bring it on round to the new school
Track Name: The J.U.S. Evolution - "Losing My Mind"
Losing My Mind

INTRO

SMOKING AND DRINKING TO MUCH
ABOUT TO MAKE THE WRONG CHOICES
I THINK I'M GOING T LOSE IT

VERSE 1

I'M STANDING LOOKING HERE OVER THE EDGE OF THE ROOF
I HEAR A VOICE SAYING JUMP FROM THIS MENTAL ABUSE
FEELS LIKE I'M OUTER SPACE WHEN I'M HIGH ON DRUGS
MY GIRLFRIEND BE COMPLAINING SHE DON'T SEE ME ENOUGH
NOW EVERY TIME I PAY A BILL
I PAY ANOTHER AGAIN
L AFTER L
MY HENNEY SHOTS SWALLOWED WITH GIN
MY MOM SCREAMS I'M NOT A MAN TILL I GET MY OWN PLACE
I MIGHT PASS OUT IF MY GIRLS PERIODS LATE
IS THIS MY FATE
IS THIS MY LAST DAY ON EARTH
MY MANAGER'S ALWAYS YELLING CAUSE I'M LATE FOR WORK
AND ALL THESE PROBLEMS THAT I SEE
I FIGHT WITH IN MY DREAMS
IN FRONT OF FANCY HOTELS HOMELESS SLEEP IN THE STREETS

CHORUS (2X)

IT'S MY BILLS, MY GIRL, MY JOB MY MOMS
THE PROBLEMS THAT I CAN'T SOLVE CAUSE LIFE IS HARD
FEELS LIKE I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME
FALLING BEHIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND

VERSE 2
I'M SO NUMB IT'S LIKE MY FACE IS IN A MOUNTAIN OF COKE
EVERYTIME I GET A CHECK,
IT'S A LOT OF PEOPLE I OWE
TIRED OF FRIENDS ASKING
WHY I DIDN'T MAKE THE BAND
I WAS AHEAD OF MY TIME
MAYBE I WAS ADVANCED
NOW IT'S BACK TO THESE STREETS
BACK TO RISKING MY LIFE
CAUSE THE FAME DON'T PAY FOR FOOD WATER AND LIGHTS
THE WHOLE BUILDING KNOWS THE LANDLORD IS KICKING ME OUT
I NEED DOUGH BUT I DON'T WANT TO GO THE STICK UP ROUTE

CHORUS (2X)

IT'S MY BILLS, MY GIRL, MY JOB MY MOMS
THE PROBLEMS THAT I CAN'T SOLVE CAUSE LIFE IS HARD
FEELS LIKE I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME
FALLING BEHIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND

BRIDGE (2X)

ALL THIS COMPLAINING FROM THESE BROADS GOT ME LOSING MY MIND
ALL THIS BITCHING FROM MY MOMS GOT ME LOSING MY MIND
THIS PINK SLIP FROM MY JOB GOT ME LOSING MY MIND
IT'S UP FOR YOU TO DECIDE
IT'S GOT ME LOSING MY MIND

VERSE 3

IN THE COLD HUSTLING
THE MORE PROBLEMS I GET ME AND MY GIRL JUST ARGUED
AND IT'S MAKING ME SICK
AT THE PAWN I HAD TO SELL ALL THAT I OWN
I'M GOING CRAZY
AND I THINK I'M ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL

CHORUS (2X)

IT'S MY BILLS, MY GIRL, MY JOB MY MOMS
THE PROBLEMS THAT I CAN'T SOLVE CAUSE LIFE IS HARD
FEELS LIKE I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME
FALLING BEHIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND
I'M LOSING MY MIND
