about

Grey Tape is my attempt to address the ubiquitous question, why does most of the music you hear on the radio sound the same, and beyond that, why does it feel like we’re compelled and inhibited by a set of emotions that simultaneously inspire us yet hold us back from evolving. When you examine the color grey it is synonymous with old age, illness, or dullness. My project attempts to dig deeper and beyond the negative connotation of the word, for there cannot be good without bad, and there cannot be youth, beauty, and health without old age, ugliness and illness. Thus, there is a certain beauty in the latter even if it exists only to help us better define the former.
Grey is a color intermediate between black and white, the area in which things are harder to define; an area where morals may be compromised, and social norms may be forgotten. My project skims the surface of this grey area giving you dreams and aspirations that may seem positive at first look but may ultimately lead to questionable decisions or emotional instability lead by obsession and extreme ambition. It gives you sins like lust and temptation that can grow into love and devotion; vanity and greed that has the potential to evolve into self awareness and charity. And ultimately I seek to find the balance by mentally and emotionally escaping the cycle of ups and downs, the happiness and depression, and looking within myself for ultimate peace; giving up the chase or the running and learning how to fly.

Track Name: Cruz OmegaSoul's Grey (feat. Cruz OmegaSoul & Karis Lovechild)
(Spoken word)- Cruz OmegaSoul
There is no medium between black and white's definition besides these four letters.
And what makes it better, is that in the same breath there is no evil without good, and vice versa,
but let me help you understand as I disperse to ya a verse for ya,
the human equalities of man. Some say man is god,
though I think it odd that we have the power to control the hour when our own minds we can't comprehend.
but let us not forget the color that smothers,
as black we are oppressed by white yet come together to make mulatto who find themselves in the shade of Grey so we send prayers to their mothers,
some need more prayers than others, do we think us a generation are a nation of prophets, hard times so we sell our wisdom for profit,
never achieving the qualities of a messenger, as I remain passenger to the stronghold of struggle, lost in a phantom of Grey

(Karis Lovechild)
Grey Tape, this is the Grey Tape, (laughter) it's like you wanna have sex with the tape, Grey, Grey Tape, Grey Tape, Grey Tape, this is the Grey Tape
Track Name: Kings and Gods
(Intro- Bari)
all hail the king

(verse 1-Bari)
This beat I wreck it, I'm a lethal weapon, with bombs in my cerebral all I need is 3 whole seconds, to drop it on the people and I'll have emcees go hectic,
matter fact I'm a needle injection, kilos of deep flows embedded in my veins, hop in the game, I've got to reign, look in the sky, clouds of propane,
I’m dropping flames, look in my eyes, see that fire burning, you can see that I'm determined, accelerate my drive, do you see my tires turning, as I ride the beat,
I am yearning for that higher learning as I climb the peak, they reside on surface, I am lurking down inside the deep ocean of devotion swimming in the wetness of feminine specimen,
the motions of emotions and she love it yea
make the industry climax from spiting these fire raps I should be in Pyrex,
yes that audio crack, finessed it all on the track, I spit it so vivid, Imax is where my mind's at ho

(Chorus- Bari)
Everyday I roam through a globe full of clones, just strolling all alone,
call me a renegade an outcast, but I just laugh, HA!
cuz I'm a king, I'm a god, muthaf*ck a facade, I'm living above the law, living above it all, I'm a king I'm a god, living above the law, living above it all I'm living above it all, hey

(verse 2- Bari)
Baltimore, Baltimore, city of the carnivores, city where they really wanna see a ni**a on the floor, my heart is sore my brain is dead, out here trying to make some bread,
try to go hard in the paint but they paint with lead, Picasso's on the block yo and he's staining shirts he paints em red, he's wearing blue, better be aware of hues,
if you wanna master the art of war, eliminate the fear in you and nigga be prepared to shoot!
But baby I ain't a shooter, I ain't never held a ruger, in the school of hard knocks I think I could use a tutor cuz I'm just a shy kid from the northeast side, tryin to keep my mind big,
spiting more deep rhymes, throwing more peace signs and got love for all of those that wanna see me shine, yeah we shine indeed I'm illuminating my city, escape the hatred and pity and all the fake shit that's petty cuz I'm

(chorus-Bari)
I'm a king, I'm a god, living above the law, living above it all, I'm living above it all
I'm a king, I'm a god, living above the law, living above it all, I'm living above it all
I'm a king, I'm a god, living above the law, living above it all, I'm living above it all
I'm a king, I'm a god, living above the law, living above it all, I'm living above it all
Track Name: Hope (Interlude) [feat. Amorous Ebony]
(Verse- Bari)
living in this crazy world, and you think you the only one sane, but everybody says you're crazy because you are not the same, you are something different, out of this world not out of your brain,
searching for some peace, something deep, something that remains true, real happiness is hard to find so you look for it deep inside of you, trying to find something real, something that the world can feel,
got to use precision, got to stay focused, got to keep your vision, even when they turn their back, you got to keep on living dawg

(Amorous Ebony and Bari)
hey under dog, what happened to your smile? What's good bro, did you let them steal your style? You say no way, no way, Imma be here for a while, to be honest, Imma keep doing my thing to the hardest, ain't nobody gonna block my shine, yea
Track Name: Thinking Man (feat. Maf Jr)
(Verse 1- Maf Jr)
Ni**as lie that's why they're found with the lost of their teeth, claiming they're running sh*t when they hardly walk with their knees, keep talking, it's not talk I believe it's action, satisfaction and intention to lead,
never slept with a night light cuz in the dark the monster was me,
my closet a portal to heaven when it need to be free, my mind f**ked from all the sh*t that I see,
I speak to ejaculate just to get a sense of relief, damn, lies are never far from the truth, it's added weight but besides that you fall through the roof, they say man ain't as perfect as the gods that they serve, excuse,
we're capable of perfection, here's your lesson and proof

(Bari)
I'm resurrecting the truth, I go hard as my erection when I step in the booth and now the weapon is loose, an AK-47 I'm directing at you and let that sh*t loose, the bullets are my thoughts, I'm aiming at your heart, your brain and your facade,
you can say I'm just a god disguised as a human being, inside of a lucid dream, I'm trying to shoot the king, do away with the tyrants it's time for a new regime

(Chorus- Bari)
I lay my head just to see something new, and close my eyes to increase my view, and say good bye to the world of the schemers, enter the world of the dreamers
Hey there, let's fly for a while
hey there, let's fly for a while
hey, we hit the sky and we out
tell you how I feel, dream and make it real

(verse 2- Maf Jr)
I feel my consciousness is need of protection, I'm wanted for discovering my mind is a weapon, but taunted for feeling and needing to be respected then rejected for not acknowledging social balance,
I stand erected like the obelisk symbolic for Osiris phallus, giving orders sitting up on my throne in a palace, my reality physicality is constructed from perfection cuz that's what I manifested,
but am I dreaming? cuz ni**as right beside me plotting and scheming, my friends, close, enemies closer, but f**k them both cuz the path that I chose, a narrowing road which keeps the distance, quit trying to debase me,
muthafu**as mad but that don't seem to phase me, I'm the master, I'm the artist, and my destiny I mold and sculpt it

(Chorus- Bari)
I lay my head just to see something new, and close my eyes to increase my view, and say good bye to the world of the schemers, enter the world of the dreamers
Hey there, let's fly for a while
hey there, let's fly for a while
hey, we hit the sky and we out
tell you how I feel, dream and make it real

(verse 3- Bari)
I go to sleep and dream reality, wake up in dark fantasies, thoughts of harsh tragedies capture me so I run to escape, they say a couple blunts to the face will make it go away, but I don't smoke, I don't drink, I just flow,
I just think, as I go the brink of insanity, capture these thoughts I speak art and leave songs in the gallery or museum, you dreaming of a large salary,
I need freedom, dark thoughts capture me but I'm rapidly fleeing from these demons, and I'm gradually reaching to the ceiling, don't be mad at me cuz I'm actually speaking what I'm feeling, I'm revealing my heart, revealing my soul,
speaking my flows, your speakers will blow cuz on this beat I explode like pyrotechnics, the flow's hard to decode like hieroglyphics,
that's just how I spit it yea
Track Name: Lotus Pose (feat. Orion13)
(Intro- Orion13)
this is third eye clarity shaping my reality, dream chasers

(verse 1- Orion13)
meditate from a lotus pose, see how your focus grows, ninjas out here chasing hopeless hos while my third eye open doors, I tell you man open yours and hope for more, can't live my life broke and poor, get my business off the ground floor,
what's up Bari let's go on tour, see the shores of France and say bonjour, bid my old friends Au Revoir, I'm living like it's no tomorrow, wake up and do a show tomorrow, the future isn't guaranteed so presently I'm chasing dreams, can you hear me talking in my sleep,
got tired of starving on the street, it's hard to get on your feet when there's holes in your sneaks, take a walk in my shoes, concrete jungle where I lost my values, everyday more blues and bad news, would say I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, then depression set in,
I don't even have a house to put a bed in, I'm a let that sink in like tattoo ink in skin, so when I pick up a pen, tell them I need a mill this instant

(chorus- Orion13)
whoa, meditate from a lotus pose, watch how my focus grows third eye opens doors, open yours and hope for more, just hope for more
whoa, meditate from a lotus pose, watch how my focus grows third eye opens doors, open yours and hope for more, just hope for more

(verse 2- Bari)
meditate from a lotus pose, elevate and open doors, dare to climb the sun, stars appear beside your thumbs and you never break you hold your own,
celebrate even though you’re poor, there's air inside your lungs all fears you overcome, my flow is the soldier's gun aimed at despair, muthafu**in AK spraying at the weight that I bare over my shoulder,
hatred was there but I escaped the matrix when I replaced it with the greatest of share determination I'm trying to make it, turn these fantasies into reality, plan to achieve a world tour then perform in every galaxy, plant the seeds of success watch it grow into the grandest tree, dough replenished rapidly,
my soul existing lavishly as I clear my sight, my mind is like Big and Pac shooting craps in heaven, that's a paradise (pair of dice), inside the plight of a city filled with parasites, trying to climb these heights as I prepare for flight, taking off to outer space and beyond, until I see the face of God

(chorus- Orion13)
whoa, meditate from a lotus pose, watch how my focus grows third eye opens doors, open yours and hope for more, just hope for more
whoa, meditate from a lotus pose, watch how my focus grows third eye opens doors, open yours and hope for more, just hope for more
Track Name: Want You (intermission) [feat. Cruz OmegaSoul]
(Cruz Omegasoul)
I see you posing, when we going to do something about it, I see you posing, when we going take it to the next level, your jeans looking over there, you're looking oh so good, I see you posing, when we going to do something about it, I see your jeans, feeling all on my oh,
I see your jeans, give me something to think about (give me something to think about) your looking so good in them jeans, when we going to take it to the next level

(Bari)
Swimming in non existent lakes of Benjamin, living in plagues of decadence and I couldn't escape the messages, written all on her face and hidden in the vaguest sentiments, her grace and elegance made it hard to escape the relishing,
let's get it in, deep in the demon pool, dreaming of me and you,
fiending for freedom from fiending the freak in you, your fees ain't feasible, I can't afford you, no I can't support you still I want the keys to you girl, open the doors of the porsche and we drive in the course of divine intercourse,
lust turns to love as we drive through the fork and arrive at divorce and I just abort the lies and the courts despising you more, blind in my sight as my mind just distorts
Track Name: Ashleyyy (feat. Maf Jr, Charlii & Danny G)
(Chorus- Bari and Maf Jr)
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea

(verse 1- Bari)
date with a dime, she was taking her time, lipstick on her face but couldn't make up her mind, on which shoes to choose her taste was divine, white lace on the space above her waist and behind, hey baby let's dine we can taste some good wine, quit taking your time, I've been waiting too long,
I was too bothered, in this car waiting losing patience like a rude doctor, my heart racing contemplating should I move onwards? until she took a step outside and activated my two chakra, ooh mamma that new summer dress got me glued on ya, I confess that I do want ya,
cupid threw away his arrow and pulled out his bazooka launcher boom! she sat in the passenger's side, I took a quick glance at her thighs, she smiled and said hi, we were feeling the vibe as we proceeded to drive, through these demon streets paved with lustful thoughts my heart singing

(Chorus- Bari and Maf Jr)
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea

(verse 2- Bari)
and now we driving through these demon streets, karma sutra between these sheets, fall into her now she reaching her peak, indeed I'm a beast, I'm a fiend she a freak all I need is a week now she lean on my D, dreaming of me as you lie awake, make my penis rise like tide at lakes,
dive between your thighs strive inside your waist girl, I'm enticed by your mind, your pretty eyes and shape, I just want to take a ride on the highest plane, G5 we fly turn the sky to flames, you reside on my mind all night and day, invade my thoughts, pervade my heart, save me God, I may be lost in the maze of her amazing grace and I'm singing

(Chorus- Bari and Maf Jr)
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea

(bridge- Bari, Charlii, Danny G)
and I ain't looking for relationship oh, I just want to have fun, but everything is changing quick no, what the hell have I done, I find me growing closer to you, and I don't know how I'm supposed to see this thing through, what do I do? oh

(verse 3- Bari)
hormones are hard to control, feelings starting to grow like tumors harbored inside your heart fostering slow, how often we go through confusion, lost in the stroke of amusement and we both know that we're foolish but our souls are controlled by the movement of lust, infatuation has taking over us, but there's something much deeper that's holding us,
I'm intertwined by your inner thighs or is it your inner mind? one taste is like the sip of elixir I'm singing

(Chorus- Bari, Maf Jr, Danny G)
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea
Ashley when you gonna let a ni**a f**k, yea

(outro- Danny G)
I'm said I'm talking Ashley, when you gon let a ni**a f**k girl, come on and give it to a ni**a, you know I've been waiting for you girl yea, Ashley, when you gon let a ni**a f**k, hey

They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil but I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh
They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh

(verse 1- 810)
said I got nothing to lose I’m a dangerous man, always spell out money in the game of hang man, dollar signs in the eyes, behind the ray band, dreaming of rubber band stacks up in my waist band they mad cuz I ain’t got it,
what’s that logic? I’m either going to die or make a profit, everything I got comes out my pocket, ni**s talk sh*t when I ain’t got it but that’s ok, grew up in the land of pay to play, in this white man’s game I won’t change a thing,
I’m a gain to gain, earn to earn, hit the shopping mall and burn to burn, save some for a business, make up for a toyless Christmas, nothing got checked off on my wish list, we was broke but damn I miss it,
cuz right now is judgment and women don’t want to f**ck with a ni**a catching them buses, pu$$y ain’t in the budget, but when it is I’m a smash it, get girls all over the atlas, sip pina colada vodka and go ski out in Aspen,
till then I keep it honest, making a simple promise to not put up with that nonsense cuz most of you cats is heartless, hungry rap, people used to hate now they want me back, when I don’t make money I’m the ugly Matt,
magnetism of the money got me wanting it bad and that’s fu**in fact cuz uh

They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil but I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh
They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh

(verse 2 –BARI)
My life’s a blank canvas I’m looking for my favorite hue, I’m in need of green but it seems all I see is shades of blue and grey skies and yellow tape help to create a view of a world that’s so bleak hot heads in cold streets and if you ain’t got bread or the cheese you won’t eat,
and them fees be so steep you go weeks with no sleep trying to make ends meet the slow way with that j-o-b that don’t pay no way so you stay low key like the left side of piano, muthaf**ka on the train with a banjo trying to play for some pay cause he mad broke and he got no way to make the cash flow, damn yo, life is a hassle complete with a**holes and brash foes and bad hos that come around only if you’re a** have dough, that’s cold, but such is the way of the world that I’m living in, where people chase presidents, Jackson’s and Benjamin’s, transactions for medicine that A.D.D brain I need cash for my Ritalin, tell me who the real villain is cuz

(chorus- Wiseone)
They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil but I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh
They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil but I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh

(Charlii)
They say money’s the root of all evil, don’t call me the devil but I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, oh
They say money’s the root of all evil, but (laughter) I swear if I was on stage I would’ve done the same thing
Track Name: Facades (feat. Wiseone, Danny G, & Chelsea Monae)
(chorus- Wiseone)
Why do I hide inside myself, trying to survive as somebody else, why do I hide as somebody else, trying to survive inside myself, lying as somebody else

(refrain-Bari)
never wanted to be myself, want to be somebody else, want to be free from this world of misery inside myself, never wanted to be myself, want to be somebody else, want to be free from this world of misery inside myself

(verse 1 Bari)
I need validation, fake smiles and salutations, from a crowd of clowns and haters, so called thugs, rich kids on drugs, beautiful girls, that’ll give more hugs when they see me in the club and I really need the love, from the ni**as with cash, I’m addicted to swag, so give me that bag fresh kicks sunglasses, give me my friends all of them dumb a**es, give me new trends let me follow the fashion, and loose ends to spend on madness, f**k school, f**k classes, f**k a bachelors, all I need is a bad chick, a Belizean actress laying with me on the mattress, saying something sweet in Spanish as I proceed to smash it, damn that sounds so attractive man,
my fakest friends dap my hand, girls coming over that’s the plan, who’s that dude oh that’s her man well if he’s acting up we’ll pack the van with gats from Iraq and Pakistan but damn I’m lying, I’m trying hard to seem so hard and defiant, I’m a lion, I’m a tiger, I’m a fighter, I’m a man with a head full of fire, more power is what I desire man,
yea give me that cash, girl give me that a** and give me that weed, that’s what I need to feel like a man, damn

(bridge- Wiseone and Danny G)
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else
lying as somebody else, dying as somebody else

(verse 2 Bari)
I need validation, from the crowds of the foulest nation, give me sounds to endow this wasteland, as I drown in smiles of faces, from thousands of fans, all cheering from the stands, it’s apparent I’m the man so show me that love, let the sky touch your hands,
as you buy into my brand lil Stans, so give me new fans I influence the masses, give me new benz and a new huge mansion, give me new friends as I reach a new status, news stand crew with the cameras flashing, and a bad bi**ch preferably a model/actress fondled on my mattress, bottles of Moscato as I wallow in the madness, all this comes from following my passion, pursuing dreams or delusions schemes, to keep the youth trapped in this foolish routine, human machines that’s what we are, trapped in facades, bandaged scars of wounds that never healed the tomb’s forever sealed, am I so afraid of losing my appeal that I do sh*t that’s cool,
rather than what’s real, keep my brain caged in a frame made of steal, nah f**k that never, I’m a break free to achieve my endeavors, I’m a take heed, take lead and be better, at just being me, just being free, demons go away, I hope my soul is saved, I hope I float away and reach the golden gates, achieve the goals I made, no I never break and I pray I never have to say

(chorus- Chelsea Monae)
Why do I hide inside myself, trying to survive as somebody else, I’ll never hide as somebody else, trying to survive inside myself, lying as somebody else
Track Name: Dance (feat. Sa'rah Rasheed, Danny G, & Amorous Ebony)
(verse 1-Bari)
who am I, who am I, a boy named Bari just spitting these lucid rhymes, thoughts ideas just drifting all through my mind, one minute I’m feeling good next minute it’s suicide, I’m wishing to free my soul, just give me a peace of mind, relief from these demons I’m just seeking that sweet divine, destruction is all around me corruption it just surrounds me,
the whole world can doubt me as long as I have my girl, but even she starts to misunderstand my thoughts and all of my plans, my dreams seem to unreal, darts thrown at romance, hearts broken, some lost focus, but still I just

(verse 2- Bari)
Who am I, who am I, a boy named Bari consumed by these human eyes, I hop on stage and influence these minds, dreams that I’m pursuing I’m shooting for moons and skies, trying to penetrate the stars, with every bullet from my pistol, a missile aimed at my heart, Cupid had to shoot it, I fell in love with this braud,
Greatness was her name we never growing apart, we floating like Noah’s ark over these oceans of frozen hearts, eloping hoping yet knowing that focus will get us far, I put the wedding band on her hand, hold her by the waist music plays and so we just

(chorus- Bari, Sa’rah Rasheed, Danny G, Amorous Ebony)
Dance to the rhythm of my own beat, I’m just standing on my own feet and I can be alone in the globe but I’m never feeling lonely, just Dance, to the rhythm of my own beat, I’m just standing on my own feet and I can be alone in the globe but I’m never feeling lonely

(bridge- Bari, Sa’rah Rasheed)
and even though I stand alone in my vision, I can feel the beat in bones as I lose my soul to the steady flow of the rhythm and I feel it go on, and I feel it go on and on and on
hey! Muthaf**k anybody trying to put a stop to my beat, just move your feet and dance, and dance, and dance

who am I, who am I, a student of the universe blooming with the fruits of life, or a lunatic aloof to worth doomed to lose his mind, to the foolishness of Lucifer greed consumes his mind, dreams of jewels and dimes from speaking lucrative lies, I’m here dancing with the devil pursuing roots of demise where fear dilutes your mind, nah never that, too clever every endeavor is a beretta shooting back at the bullsh*t that fools taught, as I moonwalk through the rude talk, with cool thoughts, and a huge heart, you’re too lost, need a coupon just to save your soul, trying to buy it back, your mind is trapped and you let the globe take control no dance, to the rhythm of your own beat, sway, to the vision that your keeps, hey, all my ni**as gonna be winning, we all bloom the globe’s our ballroom life’s a ballerina spinning now dance

(verse 2- Bari)
outrageously shy with a massive imagination, to capture the masses and trap them with tracks that I’m making, kidnap these bandits I’m robbing the master’s plantation, smashing these bastards face in, fabrications of a savage wasteland,
I erase them, I’m in a Phantom racing, on a highway to heaven blazing, Satan taking the wheel, corporations making these deals, dictating the way that we feel f**k that I’m aiming the steel, bust back at these fakers for real, f**k your enslavement, this is a

bad economy, vast dichotomy, lack of equality, that’s gotten me, gridlocked until I pickpocket Obama’s jeans, your wrist watch flip flops give it all to me, even snatch that three hundred dollar weave, off the back of her head if I gotta G, my apologies, but, muthaf**kas gotta eat,
even if I gotta grab food from your spoon, even if I gotta snatch jewels out room, trying to get high enough to grab the flag from off the moon, and drugs ain’t free, your love ain’t cheap society, these jobs won’t hire me, the irony is the government’s supplying me with fiends and the means to take anything I desire cuz it’s a fu**kin

(chorus-Lorin Williams, Randi Roberts)
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you

(verse 1- Bari)
dark skin, known to make hearts bend, keep your mind confined in apartments nah never, need a mansion for your expansion of thoughts oh so clever, trying to stroll through your conscious I can just walk forever and I can just talk forever with you, trying to learn what you know, and discern this cruel globe, that I’m lost in, where constant nonsense, bombards my conscious,
my darling, what’s all this, as I look in your dark brown eyes you smile at my questioning telling me there’s lessons in this forever present mess we’re in, world that’s filled with negligence, take a second and look inside yourself to find your wealth, but I couldn’t see it, so vivid, couldn’t peep the whole image, and so the treasure stayed hidden within my essence,

where they just living for fun, Medusa’s smile illuminated by the tip of his blunt, he’s getting stoned like Jesus, now he’s getting blown to pieces, by them boys in blue but still a muthaf**ka rose like Phoenix, from the concrete to news stations to a few places that include the basis of signs that read we need some justice or else, but still I’m stuck in this hell,
last night I was robbed for a few possessions by two dudes, confused cuz we shared the same complexion, he aimed his weapon, I gave them some change and a necklace, and they ran off in the same direction as the moonlight, right then I looked in the sky searching for your eyes or a glimpse of your smile, and there you were amongst the constellations, queen of all the nations,
you put me in this strange place and I just want to know why, you replied you still running, time to learn how to fly

(Randi Roberts)
Time to learn how to fly, oh, how to fly, how to fly, learn how to fly, how to fly
