Junk Yard Dog [video]– Napoleon Da Legend

Peace world,
I had a good time making this one. I love shooting guerrilla style videos, where we steal shots and bounce.  S/O to Crazy Al Cayne for lacing both the dope beat back in the 90s and the video, DJ M-Tri, DJ Leecy T for blessing me with raw cuts, Dan Clifford for flickin’ it up during the shoot and my homie Black Ice for holding me down. Enjoy!

@CrazyAlCayne and Napoleon Da Legend(@TeamNDL) just dropped another visual treat from the Sugar Cayne Experiment Vol#1 exclusively on CAC-TV.com. This latest joint is called “Junk Yard Dog” and it features cuts and scratches by DJ Leecy T and #SpittinInDaWIp Alumni DJ M-Tri, the video was directed and edited by Crazy Al Cayne. You can download “Junk Yard Dog” on Bandcamp.com. ——->  http://sugarcayne.bandcamp.com/track/junk-yard-dog

 

Crazy Al Cayne released a mixtape series called “The Sugar Cayne Experiment” and Volume #1 features Napoleon Da Legend.

Authentic 90′s beats with one of today’s dopest MC’s! The Junk Yard Dog be was produced by Crazy Al Cayne back in 1995. The format of the beat has not been altered, it is in the same format that it was when it was created.

Jewelz pt 3 – Napoleon Da Legend 2011

We live and learn, liquor makes the liver burn / anxiety seeps through the epiderm/ will Obama get a second term? / only death is certain/ will the human race ever learn/ I make cheddar burn/ get my point across in just 11 words/ times are harder than they ever were/ pain in my soul is hereditary/ we forever search/ for the meaning of life in every turn/ do we die and then return or go to heaven and splurge?/ or freefall in the abyss of hell and then burn?/ do we earn a pass to get us in first?/ like night club promoters while god studies my motives/  soul cleansing flushing my motor/ hustle is in my culture/ success/ death sucks us in closer/ now my heart is torn/ pushing harder through the storm/ junk food in my belly now my arteries are worn/ hard to see the wrong/ part of me’s torn/ the good side of me’s there but it’s hard to reach to him/ bad economy/ no stopping my movement while the poverty’s booming/ grinding till I’m in the driver seat cruising/ no more privacy for humans they YouTubing us/ locked in this rubix cube of consumerism/ worshipping the superficial/ no matter how long you run the truth will always hit you/ Jewelz

2X Chorus

Through my life I’ve seen all types of things/ the good the bad the ugly/ what life can bring/ through the heartaches and pain we find the strength within/ we dig deep for what it takes to win (what it takes to win)

Mind over matter/ we never mind the chatter/ my rhyme chatter I grind until I climb the ladder/ at night I shine like Las Vegas Nevada/ on or off stage I’m manifesting the latter/ see the symbolism as simple as I envision/ choose words that I assemble like Hieroglyphics/ it’s all physics/ written in the star systems/ the positive comes to the one that’s optimistic/ my belief system kills obsolete wisdom/ forces inside of me keep driving me on my mission/ to free the captive I spit for kings and Cleopatras/ dodging enemies in the Matrix with Neo backflips/ homeopathic Pisces/ Zodiac is sick/ crowd yelling homie threw me off with his accent/ Atlas throwing the earth off the axis/ small minded rappers jerking off on the mattress/ talking about his chains and rims spinning/ when he goes out to clubs he gets brains from 10 women/ now his fans don’t believe him anymore/ even worse his own man don’t believe him anymore/ now the reason in your core’s telling you to change/ the words from your songs putting you to shame/ and now you out the game/ no one will truly miss you/ no matter how much you run the truth will always hit you

Napoleonic Language (2012):

You love my element / calisthetics of eloquence/ its evident letters dipped with the foulest rhetoric/ you know my etiquette way sicker than Oedipus/ Bars post-traumatic like a veteran/ the bone shatterer/ post game show examiner/ flo batterer Po microphone Ambassador/ coldest vernacular/wrecking your cardio-vascular/ Petron tackler/ loan shark with no collateral/ bodypart damager part Dracula/ stock manager/ street runner/ corner block stamina/ the money folder portfolio grower head in slow motion the felacio hoe knower/ the microwave chef cooker/ the breath tooker/ son I left and took the money off the dresser when I left the hooker/ booker T quote teller/ the grown fella/ Jerome Bettis/ groom talent under my own umbrella/ chuck Norris face basher way past ya/ thermal soundwave slash ya with the grey matter/ the difference maker/ the bar differentiator/ cremate you all on wax the prop initiator/ mental manipulator the dime solicitator/ rhyme proliferator the bar facilitator/ vivid acrylic painter the critic eliminator/ lyrical liberator the truth assimilator/ the onion grabber hit a famous onion bragger/ the abundance haver/ step on a bonion smasher/ air force wearer ugly like a broken mirror/ the organ shifter the humanoid motion picture/ the fear monger/ skinny jean mocker/ the beat knocker Mike Tyson beat boxer/ the chief rocker/ paranoid police watcher easedropping the heat I drops like sun 2000 degrees hotter/
