I AM

I AM

Namatsi:
I am 50 – 50
I am kinky, I am witty
I am naughty, I am holy
I am the sun that burns
I am the moon that cools
Evil and good, I am Ying and Yang
A mark of perfection
An explosion of life
A theater of words
I am the blade of the knife
I am the heart of a lion
I am the eyes of an eagle
I am fire and ‘Matsi’ intertwined
So when the two make love I am their great orgasm
But when they clash, I am crushed
So I am a leach, a bitch, a terrible itch
I am the breeze that makes the nipples erect
I am the leg that takes the first step
An angle with the charm of a devil
A star rising to kiss an avatar
I am a work in progress, no stress
I leave Alice to wonder, God bless

Luki:
I am the breath that you cannot breathe and still
I am the life that you cannot take or steal
I am the skill, the potential, I am the art
I am the hip hop, the poem and in music I am a part
I am the fire that burns; I am the earth that you stand on
The water that runs, I am the air that you long for
I am the place that you cannot reach and again
I am the sermon that you cannot preach to them men
I am a king, I am an emperor, I am royalty
A soldier, a warrior, I am loyalty
I am the power, I am the length
I am the people, the crowd all me the majority
I am opportunity number one priority
This is my eulogy so I am prodigy

Namatsi:
Tell you what I am gonna do
Like an eagle soaring high
I am gonna spread my wing and fly
Let the doubts inspire me
Let my dreams elevate me
And my work prepare me to rule the sky

Luki:
So I spread ma wings and fly soar like an eagle
Show it to the falcon that I am something equal

Namatsi:
Fly real high let the stars know my name
Soar and glide let the heavens know I came


Luki:
So I defy gravity never dream to land again
So my feet off the ground never see ma prints again
Sit on the air, talk with the sun, smile with the moon,
Then dance with the stars
Am racing with the birds, floating with the wind
I ignore all fantasies and make it something real
N ma wings keep clapping, ma wings keep flapping
Higher than a shuttle, rise above the odds like air in a bubble

The loyalty Pledge (Kenya)

I pledge my loyalty to the President
and Nation of Kenya
My readiness and duty
to defend the flag of our Republic
My life, strength and service
in the task of nation building
In the living spirit embodied
in our National motto 'Harambee'

and perpetuated in the
Nyayo philosophy
of Peace, Love and Unity.


Thinking Moi’s dictatorship!
As children we had to make the pledge!
In our rags!
With no shoes on!
Bribed with milk (maziwa ya nyayo for staying so loyal)
We recited the words out loud
Religiously we recited at the school assembly
Attention we stood when recited or else we would face the wrath of the cane!

'Be water my friend!' Luki - Luki the Monster

Take all the forms and shapes circumstances throw you in and rise above them all! Fit in bottles, sit in a glass, flow down a mountain, sip down  the soil - smile at it it and rise above as you join the clouds! Be water my friend as Bruce Lee said.
Luki...
Art is the purest expression of life! It’s so vast and is always evolving!
For me it’s about being true to myself despite other people’s opinions and thoughts of how my life should be lived.  Art comes so honestly and purely, I don’t doubt its intentions. It makes me believe in my uniqueness and self-expression, and that we all should always strive to be the best version on ourselves. I mean, we only have one life to live, so we should live it to the fullest.       My art is a mix of many genres of music that have inspired me throughout my not so long existence.  With music, I feel that I can communicate more directly and precisely no matter the language as opposed to just having a conversation.  As a rapper, cyphers have given me the …

There shall be showers of blessings!

There shall be showers of blessings... Showers of blessings from hearts that we meet There will be moments we will be mad at each other But the memories we create will surpass all the storms we have faced....
To our dearest, Charles Lwande Every thought of you is warm like the beautiful sun at noon We marched in to sing our hearts out, We marched in to Piss off the neighbors, win the drink - with a shout With the eating, and the folly, and thefun--
And the lying, and the lusting, and the drink, of the gods
and the dance that we drop to- when we'redone, to the thoughts that burn us like irons And bars we killed like lions We were bonded; as if the same blood ran through our veins We were bonded And I tell you, that you blazed fire
With your guitar, young man... when you stepped on the stage,  when you opened your mouth It was all showers of blessings
every stolen feeling of diamonds, platinum and gold Every chord, every word, every note
poured out of your mouth in passion and song fine boy no pimples… you…
