The Zen Hack Commandments

One of my favorite Notorious BIG songs is The 10 Crack Commandments… Because I can appreciate a great flow and a sick beat… But, also, I think we have evolved, so I wrote my own Lyrics – The Zen Hack Commandments:

The original track is below.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

It’s the Zen hack commandments, what?

This ego can’t sell me nothing on this life.

Can’t tell me nothing about this hope, this faith, my hustlin’ prayers.

Fellas on the corner I ain’t forget you playas, my triple beam prayers.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

I’ve been in this life for years, I once was an animal

there’s rules to this ish, I wrote me a manual

A step-by-step booklet for you to get

Your ego on track, not your heart pushed back

Rule Number Uno, always let someone know

How much love you hold cause you know

That love breed ecstasy ‘specially

If your brother is down, lift they heart up

Number 2, you don’t know your next move

Don’t you know life moves in silence and guidance…

Take it from your highness…

I done tried to control this life for the bricks and chips

Number 3, always trust some-bo-dy

that man will hook you up, properly blessed up

Hoodied and cashed up, shit, for that fast praise

he be laying in the bushes ready to divinely light that ass up

Number 4, I know you heard this before

Always get high on gods supply

Number 5, never swallow lies where you rest at

I don’t care what they about, tell ’em bounce!

Number 6, that goddamn credit? Dead it

You think navient paying you back, shit forget it!

7, this rule is so underrated

Keep your heart and business completely integrated

Money and soul will mix like 2 loves with no hitch

grant yourself a serious wish

Number 8, never keep no weight on you!

Them cats that hold their pain can let it go too

Number 9 shoulda been Number 1 to me,

If you in a rush slow down

You ain’t got to hurry

If it’s all going good, stay away from worry

Number 10, a strong word called consignment

Strictly for all men, even for freshmen

If you ain’t got the problems, just say “hell no!”

‘Cause they gon’ try and get you a mask, rain sleet hail snow

Follow these rules you’ll have mad love to wake up

If not, a bunch years praying that you wake up

life hit your heart, watch your frame shake up

y’all take off your makeup/// when you pass

show me who you are and wake up, in just three weeks

you and me can grace up

Heard we can do it all, pray and even cook a dope shiitake steak up

Gotta go, gotta go, more lives to shake up, word up, who’s ready to wake up!?

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
