Baytrified (freestyled) I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there, no time soon Yay E Yay E Y’all = Yay E Yay E Y’all I heard the Bay ain’t the Bay no mo’ Well if that’s so, Then homie just say no mo’ I know you got that doe From all that ‘dro What happened to the ‘Sco Done happened to the O’ What happened to East Palo Alto though? What happened to Newark? What happened to Doug’s famous Bar B Q pork What happened Bushrod? What happened to young gods Throwin’ up the North Side on these on muhfuckas? I know the police still killin’ young brothas I know the pimps still pimpin’ We all got the symptons Of loosin’ our rhythm Cuz they came through with that whole new dimension Known as tech inventions Tech suspension Tech Life hench men Doin’ that gentrification dance Just so the Singularity can advance I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there, no time soon Yay E Yay E Y’all = Yay E Yay E Y’all Now where I’m from no longer exists Last time went back I couldn’t believe that shit Whole city got a muh fuckin’ face lift It’s like somebody went back in time and reversed all the slaveships It’s like my grand parents never even made the trip From Arkansas to Los Angeles Up to the Bay Work at the cannery all damn day And all night just to raise the quality of livin’ Now they done gave the same that they was givin’ The Ohlone people when they destroyed that land And destroyed that man and then built they houses And brought they spouses And hired my grandmamma to iron they blouses Now it’s time to see If they gone give crack to they community You dig me? I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there I can’t begin, to tell you where I been All that I can say is, I won’t be goin’ back there, no time soon Yay E Yay E Y’all = Yay E Yay E Y’all You know, some of the worst memories of my life were experienced in Oakland, California Oakland, California - Oakland, California But at the same time Some of the best memories of my life was experienced in Oakland, California Oakland, California - Oakland, California So, the paradox is tremendous And the gentrification is endless But we’ll see ((((( Word Up)))))) You never know what’ll happen After… after, after the wealthy get sick of the bay, you know what I mean? Like they did before but hey, We got the Bay in our spirit We got the Bay in our soul And for the folks that remember And the folks that know, Let’s (Set Trippin’ comists)

DJEDET There is no time spaceships make trips into our minds= we trip, forget that we are divine signs that live in bodies & shine like light through the sun come one come all We are three star, Orion I am transported & transformed no lying Mister shapeshifter form of no form= Poseidon (What is this?) Return of the Titans You just like lightning We invite men To meditate the world into existence & ignite godly filaments To fill in men’s lower dimensions (What have you done?) See, we landed on earth just to birth more rebels My cloak, my suit, my folks, my hope All, fellows who fellowship on that Djedet shit & those mountain tips Peaks reached by third eye developments Every rap we speak teach instructions On how to end internal corruption Or just how to function So you, ready when The higher lights invite men And higher life abductions Take place in them Xfiles Then rush in Lookin for X Men Who let men Be gods No death then We get in To our holy pods There is no time spaceships make trips into our minds= we trip, forget that we are divine signs that live in bodies & shine like light through the sun come one come all Another decadent spaceship landed in his head From the ajared door the invisible one came & said In our world, there’s a healthy addiction to extremities There’s a, absolute fulfillin of all your possibilities “Cuz I’m a Magnet” That’s why- “Divine attributes over human habits” We don’t take human form that often Cuz bein in the body is like being in a walkin coffin Ya dig, or ya go all urn, eitherway, every turn or time We come back to earth, we spend most of our time Reminding you of this, There is no time spaceships make trips into our minds= we trip, forget that we are divine signs that live in bodies & shine like light through the sun come one come all

“…Brand new track from Madison Washington partly American, partly British, really good combination Hip Hop with some crazy Max Roach samples in that…”-Gilles Peterson WorldwideFM

“…They’re kind of channeling a psychadelic element, great track…” –Nemone BBC6

“…Baytrified’s Pfunk groove sits beneath scathing lyrics that document the history of the Bay Area from its immigrant beginnings to its current gentrification.” –JDP @ Buzz Magazine Wales

“Check out “Baytrified” a funkstrong tribute to ole school Oakland. Local poet/MC MalikAmeer0 shares his family’s history, the rich culture & inspiring movements birthed in this community and the many changes as of late. Dope video to match! “- DJ Moni of NuYorktricity

“BAYTRIFIED is an impressive funk-flavored new hip hop track by Madison Washington featuring JTOTHEC on Def Pressé” –Akahti Magazine

“This cut sees Malik once again using his platform to do more than just hype a crowd… Consequently, Malik spits with his brand of poetic venom”- Itchysilk

“I got a new chunk of madwash on the show tmro and it’s funky like GeorgeClinton and u need it in ur ears . Check into sohoradio 12-2pm ” –Simone Marie Naked Lunch Soho Radio

“Combined with thatmanmonkz’s production, the track sounds like George Clinton meets Gil Scott Heron in all the best ways.” –GingerSlim

” Gahh – bloody hipsters – they’re everywhere. No wonder the beat is a weird off-kilter affair based around a drum loop with a time signature lurch within the drum loop and falsetto P-Funk wailing.” –Monkeyboxing

“Awash with the funk, it recalls George Clinton both in production (courtesy of the other half, Sheffield’s thatmanmonkz) plus keys and vocals from Belgian soul maestro JTOTHEC, as its lyrics address the gentrification of the area.” –Groovement
