Track Name: Crowd Control (Mad Crowd Extended Mix)
ORIGINAL LYRICS:

Keep it rolling now, Keep it going now
Keep it rolling, Crowd Control

Picture roll along, and paint impressions 'pon the canvas of your open mind
Fly your broken wing. Sit back, I'll tell you how I reach the people every time
With acid rhetoric, untalented critics dem try fi criticize my flow

Put Zulu in the mix, Me kill dem with lyrics. It's definitely Crowd Control

CHORUS

Whe me seh Rudebwoy?
Mad Crowd
Trod The Road
Rope In?
Submachine

Underestimate, Selassie know that I'm the one who keep the party live
Music circulate throughout the system, even reach dem inna countryside
Now on the darkest night, we bless them with the light, the music reach your heart and soul
[ From : http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/mc-zulu-lyrics/crowd-control-lyrics.html ]
But notice every time, Dem test the borderline, Me murda dem it's crowd control

CHORUS

I want you feel it now.
Angels and demons with weak apologies, enjoy the fruits of their rogue technologies

Meanwhile the victims of all their policies jack up the sound it's the music masterpiece

Inna The Dance
Wave your hands
Roadblock?
Fight Back

CHORUS

Angels and demons with wicked policies; No one is right, it's a pure hypocrisy
Around the world with the vibes and energy
Jack up the sound it's the music masterpiece

ORIGINAL LYRICS:
Once again speaking Festival-wise… Conversation too much for the pretentious hypocrite, pretend you’re civilized. Right now you’re tuned to the vibes of the Badman MC ZULU
I know people just want to dance and listen to festive music. I could really take advantage, but I’d rather give them something that they could look back on in life and help out when dem go thru it.
Woe is me for time that pass before they realize this gift, so:

CHORUS
Festival Madness
Make dem dance again

I say Ola-Ola-Oh No, I say Oi, Oi, Oi you
I say Ola-Ola-Oh No, I say Oi, Oi, Oi you

Original Rudebwoy Style

Watch the gyal dem wind and turn when DJ select this music. You heard it all before, but Rudebwoy lyrics improve this. Ladies and gentlemen, you feel the vibes and now we say, Work up the drum beat, shake your waist and call for the replay…
RIDDIM Dangerous, Feel the vibes, Feel the bas, Shake up your waist… I tell you

I know people just want to dance and listen to festive music. I could take advantage, but I’d woulda rather give them something that they could look back on in life and help out when dem go thru it.

Dem responsible for greater breakdown of society overall. No talent…
All the talk ‘bout Devils It’s Dem make it possible…, Give them Obstacle

Vibes for the modern age, Spread The Word. I tell you, we kill dem with the Riddim. They know this and they’re scared

Watch dem raise up controversy when dem know she Zulu Man come. That’s the time when party nice, but that’s time when Soundbwoy run. I would never show them mercy if dem go on like dem bad mind. No time fi deal with war and things it’s time fi make these ladies wind, so

And no bizzness how di place a run

I've elected not to worry 'bout my residence
and as a consequence I been rocking every continent
MC Zulu with the Megaphone Live And Direct

CHORUS
Track Name: Life Of Privilege
Life Of Privilege

Limitless possibilities, I’ll show you. There’s gold in them city streets

Gyal don’t you like my style? I’m official now. Take a picture let the image last
Try to save the visions of the past

If stuntin’ is a habit, all I know dem ladies gotta have it.
Born to live the life, watch me shine tonight

I’m destined for that homegrown super-stardom role. I’m spending money like it’s water, just to let it go
Poppin bottles, poppin collars like it’s no tomorrow. I’m longing for the days when it seems it all would never slip away

CHORUS
Ode to Life Of Privilege
Can’t fight the feeling we can do no wrong, Take it for granted ‘til the thrill is gone

They used to call me by the name “King Of Everything I Survey”, Money ain’t a thang, Seems the times have changed

We used to ride silver carriages, drawn, drivers uniformed, nothing but the best
Now dem call we “ghetto mess”.

Throw dem stones, Hatred grown.. She said “congratulations ‘pon the recent acquisition of our destitute condition” (WHAT?!) You’re gonna pay the price for your insolence when I take over this world again
I’m a boss, Baby!

Superstar… I’m aware of the contradictions, But inna the first position it’s all or nothing
So seductive, Dealing with the competition is bad enough without these outsiders passing judgement, Hold their grudge dem, against the way we choose to live

CHORUS
Ode To Life Of Privilege
Light both the ends and watch the candles burn
I push the limit, leave no stone unturned

Sometimes the truth is burden. This life we live we’re learning
I learned the girls respond with passion when me flaunt the fashion

Top of the list, don’t miss this
Raise up the cup, just sip this
Long as the wrist is frozen, Diamond/Golden, You’ll get chosen
I tried to run this script before: I said “A girl like you deserves so much more”,
Meanwhile she sees some more ballers at the table… Dollars in the air…
Makes her wonder what the business is… (Damn)

CHORUS
Ode To Life Of Privilege
Live for today and I can take you higher
But ain’t no tellin’ what your heart desires
Track Name: Crowd Control Downtempo Mix
