[Verse] I'd like to welcome you to the School For X’Scape Artists If you are listening then it's time that you take notice We symbolists so you don't have to see the faces Close your eyes and we be taking you to places Journey of the souls through the minds of the ageless We are scribes even when the book is pageless We sages with or without the wages ‘Cause when it comes to heart we are richer than your famous Yeah, the foundation of the academy is ‘bout the cohesion of body parts in the anatomy but We still able to depart like a soul And intertwine beyond the realm of the visible, uh We turn tables entangled in mic cables With a stable that's able to run it like a label but We don't sign artists, we bind where the art is And that's the reason why the art remains priceless And so they ask if we do this for fun? Hell yeah but we still give it a hell of a run The independent hustle yeah you gotta respect that It's always been a struggle but it's time that we pass that Yeah, and so we act as one We don't sign acts, we bind acts as one They call us XS.One Open up your mind gates, all access One!

[Verse 1] Aka to Shiro, The Red & White I arrive calm, riding on the fiercest of tides Raised a Ronin with the heart of a Bushi The Seven Spears got dropped for trying to oppose me I'm ill with the pen, I sit surrounded by Zen Yaris surrounding me forming the X of the clan I sit in meditation, Mind of a Shi Palms on my knees, two katanas beside me Who’s your protector? The queen of the nectar The path of my blade is through the skull of your master The route is set there's no taming my swords Code Bushido, chins down bow to the lord Skilled on both spectrums, like the Bun and the Bu You lack the discipline, no doubt I shall cleanse you The dews of death on every step that you take Blood shall purify for all the sins that you made, what! [Chorus] Aka to Shiro, in blood and purity The Bun and the Bu shall meet in holy matrimony I seek signals from the crescent and the five stars The warrior’s tongue will leave you broken and scarred Aka to Shiro, in blood and purity The Bun and the Bu shall meet in holy matrimony I seek signals from the crescent and the five stars The warrior’s tongue will leave you broken and scarred [Verse 2] Hokusai State; my mental paints Great Waves My Battousai’s blade will make you see grave days Smoking opium, stay high on podiums Throw bodies left and right like a pendulum In kanji, my name depicts as the Abbot The skilled sage when I draw my blade from the scabbard These dark mirrors, reflects nothing but your dead soul It’s a wrong move to dishonor the dojo You stepped foot in my lair It’s only right I hold your severed head by the hair These rappers lack all the skills to match And end up getting their limbs detached Sonata’s in the air while I embark on your clan The path of my sword, is through the heart of your many men Speed of Shinta, lyrically the Hitokiri Hell shall burn for the soul of my enemies, what! [Chorus] Aka to Shiro, in blood and purity The Bun and the Bu shall meet in holy matrimony I seek signals from the crescent and the five stars The warrior’s tongue will leave you broken and scarred Aka to Shiro, in blood and purity The Bun and the Bu shall meet in holy matrimony I seek signals from the crescent and the five stars The warrior’s tongue will leave you broken and scarred [Outro] What! Young the Ronin Lion City Axe Gang Aka to Shiro The Red & White [Scratches: The IZA]

[Verse 1: Bless] So I craft lyrical drafts of spiritual Spoke emotional, my life's physical Physically delivered through the juggles of syllables and similes, metaphors and philosophies I conduct miracles, verbally a disciple of principles Fundamentally infatuated with the art of poetry, believe that Hip-Hop is secondary, my rhymes are my reason and I am but the guide to where my literature is Eden, uh I lay the prequel in line with the sequel in mind Find the verbs and the nouns to the sound that align like a thin red line Phlaow! Redefining the lines Mine's a constant addiction to diction The vision to reach and teach who listens to breach divisional lines Watch me leave them behind, I go mercurial through pain and pressure My pen's pleasure designing on paper my treasured scriptures Ya heard, man I'm so obsessed it's absurd I'm pledged to the page after page or all age and that's my word [Chorus: Bless & Azrael] *Sample* Yeah *Sample* One Time *Sample* Hah! *Sample & scratches* And that’s my word [Verse 2: Azrael] Word up son, this is murder with no guns Samurai sword swinging we slaughter for Sho- Gun down the beats with the ammo that’s so poetic And I’m counting the numerics while I’m killing the alphabetics Aye, B, see (C) that I’m D-E-F Now you can smell what I’m cooking ‘cause I be the chef No cost I won’t force you to take this course Open source recipe so you can taste this sauce When every line is drawn every page is torn I’m on the writers’ block till the day is dawn Just waiting for the time before the verses spawn Imma shine on every beat I put my verses on Let me break the mic down to the break of dawn And if you doze Imma shove it down your throat when you yawn You better wake up like the alarm is on ‘Cause when I bond these words yeah my word is bond [Chorus: Azrael & Bless] *Sample* Jyeah *Sample* One Time *Sample* Aye *Sample & scratches* And that’s my word [Verse 3: Bless] Chapters and paragraphs Catchphrases, fresh paraphrases on blast Highly lethal ways I address, command and conquer Grammar bombs and napalm verses Weapons of lecture, signed, sealed, delivered with class Language be thumping my chest, burns with rhythm I meet them with context to no contest at the peak of my breath Check ill vocab cache, flex lyrical finesse Engage in stanzas, my standard's too high to surpass Yes, I'm dropping parables like no variables Stay valuable like editions limited I'm limitless like novels of nobel prize Be it prose or poetry ain't none can defy the likes of me Grand master narrator, dictating narratives Out of this world, yet native still to speech, I call it love Dialogue's my diagram, I'll speak it till it hurts My rhymes are forever and that's my word [Chorus: Bless & Azrael] *Sample* Yeah *Sample* One Time *Sample* Hah! *Sample & scratches* And that’s my word

Going up and down, back and forth in this labyrinth Through the span of my life with no plan Bends after bends, still there's no end (ah!) No eyes, seems like I've been blinded by truth I meditate, fabricate words to penetrate out from this vocal booth (ah!) Follow wherever the river may flow, the wind might blow The crowd would go, physically grow, mentally know, it's all for a show (sheesh!) See, I couldn't figure myself out Picture what I am about The mirror that mirrored me, only reflects the outer imagery Concealing my inner peace Like having a thousand killer bees swarming in me, like I am my enemy (woo!) Swim in the sympathy Singing the symphony sync with the synergy Forsaken my inner G, awaken my inner chi (ohm) It's a battle within that I never could win Say a prayer but I'm prey to the sin Refusing the fact that I'm stuck in between Diffuse in the air and be gone with the wind [Hook] I’ve been, I’ve been up and down, down Running round in circles Up, up, down, down, round, round, circles, circles No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada I’ve been, I’ve been up and down, down Running round in circles Up, up, down, down, round, round, circles, circles No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada [Outro] I’ve been, I’ve been up and down, down Running round in circles Up, up, down, down, round, round, circles, circles No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada No idea, no idea Nah nah nah nada

[Verse 1] Why do we keep running races with no finish lines? I don’t know but I won’t stop until I finish mine They say it’s all about the journey, not the destination Embrace every moment in every occasion We dream to visualize with the mind’s eyes But not everything we dream can materialize For every smile there got to be a little scar For every punchline there got to be some filler bars Happiness doesn’t equate to money and gold But we got to feed both the tummy and soul Hustle hard in whatever to fill the rice bowl But never let the hard cash leave you ice cold Let us keep marching forth every step we take Let us try to bridge the gap for every bond we break Seek forgiveness for every sin and mistake And be thankful to be alive in every breath we take [Chorus] It’s like the same story written with a different pen The same eye view through a different lens Same love from the hearts of different souls That be walking many paths to similar goals Write the same story with a different pen Take the same photograph with a different lens Same struggle that is filled with the joy and the pain The same hustle that we feel through the sun and the rain [Verse 2] I spend time for these rhymes to appear But these words are not mine, it is ours to share ‘Cause my thoughts could be yours and yours could be mine We are all really connected when the mind is align We design to refine and recline to the inner psyche Search for the signs and define what the inner sight see We fantasize our own definition of paradise And strategize to see the prize with a pair of eyes But if there is no pot of gold after many tries Then is the blood, sweat and tears worth the sacrifice? Well just ignore the success that you glamourize And recognize the real truth behind a pack of lies Because a revolution can never be televised And the answer to life can never be summarized Walk on a path to a destination that’s never fated Feeling jaded to make it till everything faded But never drown in the sorrowness if you missed the boat Just learn to build a life raft just to stay afloat We’ll never see the outcomes we’re never meant to see So no regrets for the things that wasn’t meant to be We wake up and may not live in our dream But never stop to live life and believe in your dream I woke up and I’m not living my dream But I learn to live life if you know what I mean [Chorus] It’s like the same story written with a different pen The same eye view through a different lens Same love from the hearts of different souls That be walking many paths to similar goals Write the same story with a different pen Take the same photograph with a different lens Same struggle that is filled with the joy and the pain The same hustle that we feel through the sun and the rain

[Verse] We've come to the end and the flag I'm still bearing it With the weight on my shoulder I’d still carry it And when the closest turn Judas Iscariot I send love ‘cause the hate I done bury it I walk on twos without no chariot And fell from the pull of the force of life's lariat Monologues of a poet laureate Rhyme scholar with no baccalaureate I stayed in Neverland like I was Peter Pan And wrote the same story but with a different pen If this happens to be the last verse I ever wrote Then let this be the very one that you forever quote The sole purpose is to find the soul's purpose On our soles searching when we walk the earth's surface Now take a sip from the holy grail Let the blind read the words with the holy braille Set sail on a journey so we could tell a tale Try to tail every detail when I’m leaving a trail I’m that real I never need to deceive though If only I could sell "real" then I'd receive dough There'll be times when when we wonder could there really be more When every story we unfold have been told before Sit through the ups and downs of this life like a seesaw End the war within yourself just to be peaceful Carry the weight of the world as far as the feet go Bury the hatchet before the day we deceased so The only death that I pray for is for your ego Other than that is all love as far as we go If one day you blow up just like a C4 Never let it sink your boat down to the seafloor Stay on the same path, never detour Worst comes to worst what is first is still your people And God has no equal Amidst the infinite our picture is but a pixel And if God is the prequel The end is a beginning every chapter is a sequel [Outro] The end is a beginning every chapter is a sequel Nothing lasts forever yet nothing ever really ends The end is a beginning every chapter is a sequel Nothing lasts forever yet nothing ever really ends

about

The.XS Collective presents "THE X’SSEMBLY" is a music compilation by XS.One The Regiment. The artistic congregation re-assembles a diversified stable of X'Scape Artists from The.XS Collective.

The cinematic audio experience transports listeners into a musical journey of beats & rhymes. Explore the heart, mind and soul of each rhymesayer through the personification of their art.

Following in the tradition of rap posse cuts, the track "Lion City Axe Gang" serves as the crew's anthem in “THE X'SSEMBLY". While displaying technical dexterities of street poetry with each distinctive voice and style, the kinship of the crew often resonates in unison to the beats.

Back in 2007, the regiment's first compilation entitled "School for X'Scape Artists" introduced a lineup of rhymesayers and beatsmiths that produced a brand of guerilla-styled hiphop music and videos that have since paved the way for more independent releases and projects from the camp. As each artist paved their own lane according to their respective vision, collectively the music evolved to be more diverse yet true to form and still maintaining an essence of cohesion. The evolution, progress and maturity of the sound and different personalities are clearly manifested in “THE X'SSEMBLY", which marks as the third installation in a series of compilation albums by XS.One The Regiment following "The Orientation" (2010).

Operating more as a fellowship equipped with the DIY spirit and ethos that drives independent movements, The.XS Collective remains as one of the longest running rap coalition in the Singapore Hip-Hop scene.

“THE X’SSEMBLY" is available across various digital music platforms from 19 January 2019. Limited Edition CDs, Cassettes & USB-drives are also produced for those who still appreciate tangible formats of music.
