Track Name: Be Wise
Be Wise

Verse 1
We’re surrounded by so many things
That can make us do what’s wrong; so wrong
Though it sometimes may be challenging
Remember the words of this song

Chorus
Be wise
You have to decide
What to do when hard choices arise
Be wise
You have to realize
That it’s not always easy for me to be wise

Rap
When a decision’ s hard
and you don’t know what to do
You have to use the wisdom inside of you
You have to make a choice that’s either bad or good
You should make the choice that a leader would
You should
Make it good
You should
Make it good What!
Make it, Make it

Chorus 2-times
Be wise
You have to decide
What to do when hard choices arise
Be wise
You have to realize
That it’s not always easy for me to…

Be wise W-I-S-E
Be wise
What should your choice be?
Realize it’s not always easy to be
W-I-S-E

Track Name: Respect
Respect

The only thing we really need
Is R-e-s-p-e-c-t
Respect is all we really need
Respect is all we really need

R-e-s-p-e-c-t we gotta show it to each other all.
R-e-s-p-e-c-t
Respect is the only way hey!

Respect is shown through your actions
Not just something that you say.
Respect is not just for grown ups
We respect each other the same way

Respect another point of view
Even if you don't agree
It might give you a new idea
Just wait and see

Chorus
R-e-s-p-e-c-t we gotta show it to each other all.
R-e-s-p-e-c-t
Respect is the only way hey!

If you respect yourself put your hands up!
If you respect your friends, put your hands up!
If you want respect put your hands up!
Put your hands up! Put your hands up!

Rap
You need to have self respect in order to
Expect other people to respect you
Respect is something that you give earn
How you treat a person will be returned.
When you see the great things inside yourself
You start to find things in everyone else
If you think that's hard just don't forget
The respect you earn is the respect you get

R-e-s-p-e-c-t we gotta show it to each other all.
R-e-s-p-e-c-t
Respect is the only way hey!
R-e-s-p-e-c-t we gotta show it to each other all.

Track Name: I Believe
Higher

Verse 1
I don't believe in fairy tails
I know the difference between facts and fantasy.
I don't believe monsters live in my closet or under my bed
You heard what I said but

Chorus
I believe in me
I’m the one who decides if I sink or I fly
I believe in myself
Don’t have time to be worried 'bout anyone else
I believe, I believe

Verse 2
I don't believe black cats bring bad luck
And neither does number thirteen
I don't believe there's a pot filled with gold at the rainbow’s end
It's all just pretend but

Chorus
I believe in me
I’m the one who decides if I sink or I fly
I believe in myself
Don’t have time to be worried 'bout anyone else
I believe, I believe

Bridge
It's not easy to trust that you will
Have the knowledge and skill
That will help you succeed

But I have courage and confidence
So I'm simply convinced
That I do
So do you

Chorus
I believe in me
I’m the one who decides if I sink or I fly
I believe ---in myself
Don’t have time to be worried 'bout anyone else
No!
I believe in me
I’m the one who decides if I sink or I fly
I believe ---in myself
Don’t have time to be worried 'bout anyone else
I believe, I believe , I believe

Track Name: I'm So Determined
I'm So Determined

Verse 1
There are some days that I doubt myself
I just can't do it
I'll leave the work for somebody else
Who can push through it.
But then I think of the shoulders
I stand on everyday
They paved the road through their struggle
Now it's my turn

Chorus
I'm so determined
To never give up on anything in life
Oh you should know that
I'm so determined
To follow through on all of my dreams
No matter how far they seem.

Verse 2
I had so many days when I felt
Stuck in the same place
The thought of failing when I’m trying
I simply can not face
There will be times that I'll stumble
I'll just get back in the race
I may not be first or second
I'll move at my pace

Chorus
I'm so determined
To never give up on anything in life
Oh you should know that
I'm so determined
To follow through on all of my dreams
No matter how far they seem.


Rap
You wanna give up
You wanna hold back
That's not determination
Come on stop that

Change your attitude
Before it hurts you
Be more positive
And you will push through.

I have determination
You see it in my eyes
I know my destination
I see the final prize

I’m on my way to college
Nothing's gonna stop me
If I fall, I will rise, my dreams will never die because

Chorus- 2 times
I'm so determined
To never give up on anything in life
Oh you should know that
I'm so determined
To follow through on all of my dreams
No matter how far they seem.

Track Name: My Journey (featuring Xavier Irizarry)
My Journey

Are you ready? Yea! To get it started? Yea!
Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s Go!

Verse 1
Look, there are so many pieces
That make up what’s inside
Some, I’ve yet to discover
Others I wear with pride

Just like a puzzle I’m complex
So many pieces all connect
To form a person that’s one-of-a-kind
I am so uniquely designed

Chorus
I’m on a journey
But the destination has never been seen
I’m on a journey
But the road I travel is inside of me
I’m learning who I am, and who I’ll grow to be
My identity evolves and blossoms constantly

Rap
Learning who you are is essential
It’s the only way that you discover your potential
Knowing all the little things that make you weak and strong
Can give your life purpose, teach you where you belong

No one else is like you
No one does it like you do
You have a light, let it shine
From inside, you can’t hide

Tell the world – “This is me!”
And there’s so much you can’t see
Shout it out! Shout it out!
Shout it out, out out out!

Chorus – 2 times
I’m on a journey
But the destination has never been seen
I’m on a journey
But the road I travel is inside of me
I’m learning who I am, and who I’ll grow to be
My identity evolves and blossoms constantly

It’s My Journey!

Track Name: It Was All A Dream
It Was All A Dream

Verse 1
In my dreams I’m just the best
Everything’s flawless
I know all the answers, help my friends, and always pass the tests.

I come first in every race
No one can match my pace
When I swing I always hit
Whenever I shoot I can’t miss

Boy it feels like I could fly if I just tried
I always want to feel this way
All through the night and through the day

Chorus
It was all a dream
That’s how it seemed
I never thought I could make it happen
Stopped my dreaming and took some action

In my dreams
I saw a new and better me
I chose to be that person in reality
Not only in my dreams

Verse 2
In my dreams I own so much
Even a company
A house, some cars, a plane, a boat,
They all belong to me

When I sing my voice is clear
Its beauty fills the air
I can give goose bumps and chills
To every single one that hears

Boy it feels like I could fly if I just tried
I always want to feel this way
All through the night and through the day


Chorus
It was all a dream
That’s how it seemed
I never thought I could make it happen
Stopped my dreaming and took some action

In my dreams
I saw a new and better me
I chose to be that person in reality
Not only in my dreams

Bridge

Don’t think that it’s impossible
To live your fantasies
Anything you can imagine
is a possibility

All the people with success
Who worked to be the very best
Say, in order to succeed
You have to chase after your dreams
Chase after your dreams

Chorus
It was all a dream
That’s how it seemed
I never thought I could make it happen
Stopped my dreaming and took some action

In my dreams
I saw a new and better me
I chose to be that person in reality
Not only in my dreams
Not only in my dreams
Not only in my dreams

Track Name: I'll Take the Steps
I'll Take The Steps

Verse1
When I envision my life years from now
I see I’m college bound
I know I won’t end up there magically
The work begins right now.

It’s a little bit scary but I’ll conquer my fears
Cause I know
I’ll be filled with regret if I don’t act on my ideas
So

Chorus A
I am going to seize each moment
Won’t let life pass me by
Progress is never made by standing still
I’ll take the steps, I will

Verse 2
Patience is a virtue we all need
But don’t take that too far
If you are hesitating constantly
You’ll stay right where you are

Why wait till tomorrow when you have today
Don’t be afraid
One foot behind the other gets you on your way
So

Chorus B
Go ahead and seize each moment
Don’t let life pass you by
Progress is never made by standing still
You’ll take the steps, you will

Chorus A – Two Times
I am going to seize each moment
Won’t let life pass me by
Progress is never made by standing still
I’ll take the steps, I will

I will, I will.

Track Name: We'll Change The World
We'll Change The World

Verse 1
I'd like to tell you all a story
That took place one winter night
The stars were out in all their glory
It was the most amazing sight

I thought of all that's wrong in the world
The joy I felt began to cease
How can we say we love our world
If we can't even give her peace

Chorus
We'll change the world
The children
We'll change the world
If we Love our brothers and
Respect each other then
We'll change the world
We'll change the world

Verse 2
That night I made a big decision
I'll never fear what I don't know
Pre-judging only brings division
Learning from others helps us grow

The future is in the children's hands
We’ll be the change you want to see
Each day each choice, each child each voice
Will make it a reality

Chorus
We'll change the world
The children
We'll change the world
If we Love our brothers and
Respect each other then
We'll change the world
We'll change the world

Track Name: Higher (featuring Andre Jalil)
Higher

Verse 1
Each and every day I’m always thankful for my friends
They make me laugh, and I can always count on them
When they’re around I know I’m in for a real good time
No one compares to these amazing friends of mine

But the best thing about them, is they all have real big dreams
I know I have to surround myself with people doing big things

Chorus
They take me higher, much higher than I would go on my own
They push me higher, so high that I could not get there all alone
I know I will be judged by the company I keep
So I constantly make sure my friends are reflections of me

Verse 2
The people who are close to me
Are bringing positive energy
I don’t need to have you around if all you do is keep me down

The people who I want to know
Are making moves so they can grow
Making progress on life’s track, moving forward, never back

Honestly I’d rather be
Alone than have bad company
I’d march to my own beat before they’d slow me to down to match their speed

If your goal is to improve
Take your time when you choose
The people that reflect your style, who’ll be in your life for a while

Rap
When it comes to decisions it boils down to who
I consider friends and who I call my crew
We can watch TV and talk about sci-fi
Play sports get all excited and high five
But at the end of the day I need people around me
Who encourage not tease or clown me
It's my desire to go higher and higher
Build an empire with friends who inspire
If that is you then what are we waiting on?
We can have a friendship that lasts crazy long
Pardon the slang that means forever
We can read books and build things together
I will always surround myself with
Motivators not anyone who is selfish
Negative people I won't be stuck with
I'm a future Zuckerberg or Warren Buffett

Chorus
They take me higher, much higher than I would go on my own
They push me higher, so high that I could not get there all alone
I know I will be judged by the company I keep
So I constantly make sure my friends are reflections of me

They take me higher, much higher than I would go on my own
They push me higher, so high that I could not get there all alone

They take me higher, much higher than I would go on my own
They push me higher, so high that I could not get there all alone
I know I will be judged by the company I keep
So I constantly make sure my friends are reflections of me
