about

From Day One:

With his first conceptual music piece, AB reaches back to his roots and upbringing to paint vivid images of what it was like growing up in Washington Heights, NY. A first generation Dominican American, AB offers up a new perspective of what it means to make it "Out The Hood".

Feeling censored by his previous platform, AB uses his childhood influences and experiences of the world, to deliver powerful punchlines, targeted jabs, and slick story telling, putting together a rugged, uncensored, and emotionally driven project.

True to the authentic NYC HipHop sound "From Day One" will have you head knocking and lyric hopping from start to finish.

Track Name: Deceit (Interlude)
[Interlude:]

I'm on an elevated plane,
Above the clouds on a different planet,
I planned it, wrote it in my planner,
To plan, to live my life the way I plan to,
I'm not new, older than the fossils,
Deep in the core, I soar,
Over volcanoes, survived tornadoes,
Mother earths nature, rooted in me,
It's essential, existential,
Moonrise, I met you
Sitting in your sorrow, wallow
Your screams in the hallow halls,
Of a dorm, I'm not norm,
A different form, of existence
Quick lipped, a quick flip,
Of words and I'm heard,
Sheep the heard,
A shepherds word,
Is all that counts,
Don't cry wolf, I am the wolf
Moonrise, deceiftul eyes
Lunar eclipse of the soul
Track Name: Wash Heightz, NY
[Intro:]

"Wash Heightz"
"Somone Close That Door Mang, I gotta Get this Out Real Quick"
"Nah Close That Door, Close That Door Real Quick,
"Yea"

[Verse 1:]

I cut water like its ice,
Homie name your price,
A Nigga from the Heightz,
See me reaching different heights,
With the whites doing hikes,
Now I tell'em on the mic,
true life, in they circle
Didn't see me dark knight,
Tryna be a hero,
Nigga,ready for a fight,
Spic to my face,
Mang, didn't think twice,
eyes rolled back,
Saw the Lids blinked twice,
Hit the deck night night,
Then I saw the lights,
Sirens and the bike,
Rumors,Troopers don't play nice,
I told em what he said,
Tol'em that he racist,
I hope that Niggas dead,
They cuff me up tight,
Now a lil Niggas life,
About to change for life,

[Hook:]

"Dominoes at Night
Guess we live in Wash Heightz,
Purple haze, Purple weed, Purple thieves,
Rest in peace ,Anthony,
Purple leaves, Imma leave,
Fingerprints, Best believes,
On these streets, Move the masses JC,
You know he lives in me,
Apostle here's my creed
Write my trilogy, To the world I am numb,
There's more to me to see,
Start bangin on em drums,
I'm comming for you son,
Don't you dare play dumb, yo"

[Verse 2:]

Don't you dare play dumb yo,
I never threw the ball slow,
Never set the bar low,
Jumping over towers,
You know I go for hours,
Opponents I devour,
Mario, on a flower,
Burning up the cowards,
Xavi light da sour,
2k hit the Power,
Every 12th hour,
Can you handle lead showers,
Pictures with the candles and the flowers,
Easy does it,
OmYgoodness,
is he saying
what I think he's saying,
Evils dead,
Horses and the men,
Humpty Dumpty cracked his head,
Cal me Schroeder bout to shred,
Michaelangelo instead,
Got them paintings in my shed,
Use to paint them before bed,
Back wehen all we had was bread,
With the butter as the spread,
Now it hangs over my head,
Guilty conscience call the Feds,
Guilty conscience call the Feds
Guilty conscience call the Feds,
Yea I did it, I'll admit it

[Bridge:]

Don't you dare play dumb, yo (Nuh, Uh),
Wash Heightz Dominicano, (Wooo),
Audobon to st nick, (You Know)
Wash Heightz Dominicano
On the block there's my clique, (Waddup, Mikey!),
Wash Heightz Dominicano, (Wooo),
I'm gon put us on a blimp, (We Out),
We live that life of Pablo


[Hook:]

"Dominoes at Night

Track Name: Our Town (Interlude)
I took the reigns off, chainsaw,
Break off, I ain't soft,
Killed or be killed
That's lame sauce,
Without family success is vain, dawg

So build a village,
Forget the privilege
Black, brown, white we all in it,
All hands in the cottony fields,
Every mouth eating at every meal,
Our souls fed by the peoples spiels
It feels as if this life could be real.
It will if we build it they will come,
I've seen it in the movies,
my dreaMs truley,
I need a loose leaf,
We are loose leaves,
Detached from our branch,
And tree rooted in the ground,
I rep mine you rep yours,
But this world is our town.
Track Name: False Friends
[Skit:]

Yo,

I aint really tryna stunt on nobody,

but I am humble,
I been through this struggle,
I've tumbled through this tunnel,

Yea I'm about it, let the haters doubts it
read all about it, Lets see if they still doubting
already out this gate, stock grows by the day,
run away with the game like Husain,
with my brain, straight flames lukang,
make it rain what a shame,
years in the game ya all sound the same,
check my gains,
work heavy in the paint,
take off no days what I put is what rake,
hard work to the grave, level up next phase,
Like Goku,
most of you don't do, what I do,
poor you,
Victims of the world, I pour you
cup of tea for the pity, williniillie,
now in getting silly for my city,

just rapper, he looks so dapper,
friendly like Casper,
never seen one man climb up faster,
Y'all call me dasher, My mind calls me master

[Outro: X2]
The World Better Know I Can Rap!
Never with them False friends always got my back
