Track Name: Taking the Throne
[Verse 1 - Quentino]
Sorry, ladies and gentleman, that this nigga been gone for a while
Might as well go ahead and stay up, because I'm takin' the throne now
Bitch, everyone says that he's better than me, so I'm startin' to itch like fleas
Oh wait--- but when I take the throne, everyone who hates me better learn to flee
I'm the 5th King of P.O.P., bitch nigga better learn to bow down to the king
On your knees, nigga! Usherin' the takeover, but I'm not Jay-Z
So I'll stick with Ether. I never carried a nine
Because I have a mind
To be able to write down the plans
To end up takin' yo' lands
I fight for my clan
And that clan is ChromeOmega
So know that when you see me (echo), that means it's the omega
The end of your life line--- oh wait, oh my God!
Your whole career just flat-lined! Bye.

[Hook - Black Smith]
Earn a front-row seat to the home of the slave
Cop a first-class ticket for the escape that we crave
Win a crash-course wit' us on the road that we've paved
'Cause we've come too far to let Fate get in our way
Now it's time to make bank as we break all our chains
And it's time to gang-way and set the palace ablaze
So we crank the sound up in the whip and press play
All these notes are the key to the throne that we take!
(Nigga, what?)

[Verse 2 - Quentino]
The lights shut off; understand I'm 'bout to blow off
My resurrection should be comin' from Jesus
I put my sweat, my tears, and my struggles on paper
I've waited long enough, so it's time to say "hey there!"
It's the return of me
I'm the Scorpio King
My Zodiac tells it all, so I will not fall, I will not fail
I'm tired of livin' in Hell; niggas been wantin' to see me in a jail cell
Fuck them niggas! Fuck the A!
I'm gettin' locked up---
Behind bars, my uncle should be home right now
I'm tired of people who act like they support you
But instead a lot of those people wanna make fun of you
They say you great; then they change their minds and say you suck
Nowadays I just tell them to fuck off
I don't respect no one until they can give respect
Oh wait a second--- I'm takin' the throne, Scorpio King, BITCH!

And it's time to gang-way and set the palace ablaze
So we crank the sound up in the whip and press play
All these notes are the key to the throne that we take!
