Special thanks to Agalya, who has put up with my late night studio sessions, loud ass music and for understanding "the life". I love you so much! Major thanks to my creative director Showboiz Jama, if it wasn't for your genuine input, I may have not made it. Shout out to Showboiz Paco for the visual direction, your dedication to professionalism and hard work will pay off. Huge thanks to the Kid Famous for believing in my song writing ability, your confidence in me has motivated me and your work ethic has inspired me. Superbig thank you to Nivla for jumping on "Superhard" and killing it without any hesitations. Heavy shout out to Dan-D for singing on "Ain't My Girl", your the next Timberlake bro!

Track Name: Overcome
Verse 1

I am killing em on all grounds all purpose warfare/
I am from a place called go there/
And I'd love for your stupid ass to just go there/
I'm bringing it/
Fuck flight school boy I'm winging it/
The most beautiful women be jigalin/

Around me lingering/
No more tinkering/
Its a numbers game and I am figuring/
Irrespective of what anyone has done/
I've always felt like I am the one/ fix

I made a promise to my mama/
That I'm a work harder/
So I treat my city like I'm living in sparta/ fix
And everything I'm not I wear it like its armour/
So even if you diss me it just really make me stronger/

So say what you will/
I aint gonna chill/
And I aint gonna kill ya but your first single will/
And even if you make it that far I am on the hill/ fix
With a sniper rifel and its aimed for your grill/

I am talking metaphors/
What I got in store/
This my grand opening, ribbons at the door/
And I am going to cut it, red light whore/
E s p n flow I settle every score/

In the club I get a section/ fix
Just for affection/
No need for protection/ fix
my dick spit out perfection/ fix
I walk into a room and its like an intervention/ fix
Only for the reason I'm the center of attention/

This is my ascension/
Bombay hospital/
Aubrey was probable, I'm the impossible/
Imagine if I do it though/
Oh my god the accolades/
More important is the discussion I want to activate/

The comments I can handle/
In fact I hope its ample/
Cause I've heard it all before, I could play the sample/
You say you've got your own lane, well mines made out of gravel

Hook:

Yeah That's why I do it till its over done
I'm everything cause of the things that I've over come/
Had 99 problems but I just got over one/
neo would you tell these rappers that its over son

Yeah That's why I do it till its over done/
I'm everything cause of the things that I've over come/
All the things that I've overcome/
Just some things that overcome/



Verse 2

Yeah this is what you call devotion/
Me in my new car is poetry in motion/
And even though I wish I don't got the roof open/
But I got open bottles right where the cups go in/

Haha cant I have a little fun/
I've never tried to be everything to everyone/
I want to tell my dad I aint been much of a son/
And I want him to reply I aint much to anyone/

But hey what can I say thatll probably never happen/
When someones out your life, it is hard to let them back in/
its funny how we all go from crying to laughing/
And it happens all over a bottle of captains/

Damn, it was all good just a week ago/
I was in new york fucking all the puerto rican hoes/
And I know it may sound bad, did a speaker blow?/
But this is my Atlantic ocean/
Deeper flow/

I mean I did it/
The game change cause I'm in it/
Just be glad my momma got us plane tickets/ fix
And to the girls who imagine how I hit it/
I got this brown girls thinking that I play cricket/

Who would have thought this is how I turned up/
Between the covers of your sisters Word up/
And I know that it makes you hurl up/
But I'm bout play every country, world cup/

I'm doing concerts first/
I'm listing the major cities, sean john shirts/
So you can do whatever works/
I know they feel me cause I do whatever hurts/

Yeah I'm just tryna get my town right/
And be more than niche rapper caught up in the brown hype/
Cause I remember when I didn't even really sound right/
Now ive over come it all,
And this is what it sounds like/



Hook:

Yeah That's why I do it till its over done
I'm everything cause of the things that I've over come/
Had 99 problems but I just got over one/
neo would you tell these rappers that its over son

Yeah That's why I do it till its over done/
I'm everything cause of the things that I've over come/
All the things that I've overcome/
Just some things that overcome/

Lyrics "New King"
Written and Performed by Drega
Produced by Neo Tempus


This is my township, you are not allowed in/
Whose running the city, is not whose talking the loudest/
You talking the most shit, but you never show shit/
Me, I'm stacking that paper like a post-it/

Plus I am everywhere, how would you know this/
My cell on Rome, just like the Pope is/
Thirty city tour, nothing but a road trip/
Yes I am sure your girl is devoted/

I am like my god, haters got to try hard/
Cause the only shots I see is of a tripod/
I am with a tight mobb, you can get your life gone/
Plus you underarmed, just like Right Guard/

I am in the everglades, sippin on Lemonade/
With City Tv's brand new weather Babe/
She can tell you when it rain, I can tell you when it snow/
We going to get it poppin' now, you should go and let it go/

Chorus
Cause I'm the King, and you ain't never going to be that/
I got my whole city saying Dre we need that/
I see you smiling girlfriend, yeah I feel that/
Now would you drop it, drop it low, so I can see that/

Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
And if he ain't special come and do me/

Verse 2

I'm the newness and I'm 'bout to do this/
If you geeked out, then I am considered dufus/
Your girl love me, but I am clueless/
That she is wetter than the tiles outside of where the pool is/

Hot raps, got me in the top draft/
Menopause (Men a pause) bars, pause, hot flash/
How you going to stop that? You can never top that/
I will come to your 'hood wearing a top hat/

E.T., Extra, saying I'm next sir/
Cause I kill 'em every single show like Dexter/
Now can I fester, yes I said fester/
Cause I'm 'bout to ball like Uncle Fester/

I'm on the dance floor acting right/
I'm moving like Will Smith to "Back to Life"/
The "running man" from the motherland/
Now move it all around like a hundred grams/

Chorus
Cause I'm the King, and you ain't never going to be that/
I got my whole city saying Dre we need that/
I see you smiling girlfriend, yeah I feel that/
Now would you drop it, drop it low, so I can see that/

Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
And if he ain't special come and do me/

Bridge

Oh my god Dre
Oh my god you killing it
Oh my god Dre
Oh my god you killing it

Oh my god Dre
Oh my god you killing it
Oh my god Dre
Oh my god you killing it

Verse 3

I'm the new king, who are you fooling?/
I see you puppet masters and the two strings/
We about to ruin, everything you doing/
But first we going to get redder than a pair of Ewings/

The city is mine, actually I'm lying/
I'm somewhere with the stars what's up to Orion/
No I'm not Jay Sean, but these girls "Ride It"/
They all want my company like they 'bout to buy it/


Chorus
Cause I'm the King, and you ain't never going to be that/
I got my whole city saying Dre we need that/
I see you smiling girlfriend, yeah I feel that/
Now would you drop it, drop it low, so I can see that/

Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
Now, Now do something special/
And if he ain't special come and do me/

Henry VIII Lyrics

Verse 1

You aint did nothing, I done did plenty/
You say you king James, I say I'm king Henry/
They call me goan boss, I'm like a mean fenny/
Man I'm fuckin wasted, i could pee henny/

Her panties rip rip down/
So I gave her that lick lick down/
She gave me all white white white everything, a big hick town/

Baby I need your loving, hmm Four Tops/
We gonna shut this party down plus four blocks/
Quit asking stupid questions, where ya forthought/
Where you get those shoes dre, I forgot/

Oh yeah they ferragamo/
You see me stuntin mama/
If my real mom was here she would going bonkers
She would said stupid boy why don't you go and fix your fix your face/
And I would say mom mom mom I'm Henry eight/

Chrous

I'm Henry eight, look at me I'm doing great
(x2)

Verse 2
You not as smart as me that's why you can't do it/ wedding ring flow,

And I hatin though, I think you can do it/
But all your big bold claims, refuted/

Let me guess, you gonna do it like no one else/
You mister me too, I'm mister no one else/
I'm only snaky, when I buckle up the cobra belt/
Leather vest, puffing out the hairy chest/

Drega C ness, I went from the c list/
To the one you wish could someday go be list/
This is my town, my domain/
Flood the city boy, broken water main/

What you looking at, not me/
this is dreganess, I'm in the top 3/
Top one, top me/
Ask your girl, top D

Chrous
I'm Henry eight, I'm Henry eight ugh
I'm Henry eight, I'm Henry eight ugh
I'm Henry eight, I'm Henry eight ugh
I'm Henry eight, look at me I'm doing great
(x2)
