about

'17 BASTARDS, Koga Shabazz's first major project, serves as somewhat of an introduction, alongside fellow Seattle artist Samsara. Lyrically, Shabazz continues to deliver metaphors and double entendres that entice listeners enough to read deeper into the multi-faceted lyrics, so that conceptually the song tie's together before their eyes. Samsara shows his most versatile side on this EP, producing head knocking bangers like Ego Trippin', as well as soundtracks for sorrow filled stories like Heroic Villainy. At just 17, Shabazz and Samsara deliver a short, but dense and colorful project, which stands alone.

Track Name: Ego Trippin'
VERSE
My soul is worth your whole label nigga fuck a hundred grand sir
Pikachu complex wanna touch this need a rubber hand boy
Soliloquies die wit the dream as they stream through the running sand cuz
So if he ain't blood why in the world was you worried bout another man cuz
Suicide for a rap star coincide with a groupie hoe nigga/ no assist from a big bro like a dish from a Rubio nigga
Watch son fly like a wombat in the combats crucible
Engineer playing games wit my money and my time cut him and I built my own studio nigga
Be a nigga wit a tank I'm a kitchen wit a sank
Mind flow through the faucet cost 4 cents Justin let it run like Forsett
Say less prefer to pay less but never Payless I'll rob yo ass first
Warrant that search probable cause and probable bid still God will love all

CHORUS
And the bigger yo ego then the harder it fall
Get big on yo people then the harder you'll fall
Maybe master that flow but uh is you stopping that bomb
Don't get caught up in the cross hairs when the martyrs all gone/
Track Name: Heroic Villainy
CHORUS
Unsung glory, one dumb shorty
Problem risen from hell, pop your typical story
Pop the lock like a dance months hidden undercover
Every crime that he committed he did it for his mother/

VERSE
And he don't hit licks he hit lures young dumb Adolf
Unsung one ton pride filled pay off
Gravy off his past tho complacent was the fam while he baking in the van and praying to let his k off
Bounty on his head got more hits than hey ya!/ aiming at the bank teach a kid a how to bank shot
Swaying off the grid he living big in the safe house
And in America by surprise, derringer on his thigh
Danger up in disguise, murders by his side
Double is how they agent
Hustlers how they gaming, southerners how they Cajun
Customers politicians who funding the operation
Hog farm and the Feds on my niggas ass
Is it clear ? You see the picture and situation
Figures he needed figures avoided litigation
Quoted in arrest, they tried to use it in the court but his lawyer the best
Did it for the Benz, or the asking price
But it was dented in the end , that's why he laughing right? savage
The story jump back into action
First job back jewelry store smashing and dashing
Need a nigga wit a whip who dip on smooth shit
Gotta move quick like the laxative action
Pull up, guns out he can feel the pace rushing
Clean the case it's a easy take cousin
They ain't want the heat like a easy bake oven
Everybody pray to God no faith no talking
Little did he no that little Asian ho hit the emergency button
Whole fuzz ball coming
He'll get burglary armed robbery perjury something
Niggas sprinted to the car smelled the bacon in the oven
Hit the gas still a chance of an escape
Hands form to pray while they dash from the jakes
Broken glass in they gloves still ran with the take
Can't handle the chase at irrational rates
He doing 90 on it in the dark trying to make the light
And by this action indirectly shorty takes a life
His momma hooptie at the same time take a right
Crash heard around the world fire melts away their pain
Fin across the screen as the camera fades to the night
His mom died that night
Track Name: Seeds of Envy
CHORUS
Can't we all get paid
Bust locks while the belly of the Lockness curves
Nonsense wars like the mosh pit turnt
And His Nine sense foes as the conflict Spurs
Caught slipping bitch, stop flinching
Outta quit jumping play, like Tim Duncan
Glare into his eyes body language look surprised and The way the nigga lying he could gas a brick oven

VERSE
Enter the dragon captain yo crew drown
Sedative seeping through me I see what violence will do now
Stealing Black and gold weapons I end around with that dude brown Decimating the place like the end of the round in nuke town
Sunny side how her kids is ,underly chauvinistic strunged over the fences
Sat us for a second Ginobli on the benches
If my niggas Marshawn then we gloating over them lynches
How you doing boom, swami sez that we ought to lose
Always thinking dubs I promise already bought the booze
Our Apache blood assaulting food then we grab a 2
Got a motley crew of origami goons for Robbin dudes
Army please
All my fight is in the hooves
If you Riding Out your pain you should write it in a book
Niggas lying bout they fame but the truth is in the crowd
You should do it for yo family never do it for your proud
I'm truer than your jeans and brighter than your chain boy
Only light i see I all the lighters in the haze boy
I'm truer than your jeans and brighter than your chain boy
Only light i see I is truant for eternal days boy/

CHORUS
Can't we all get paid
Bust locks while the belly of the Lockness curves
Nonsense wars like the mosh pit turnt
And His Nine sense foes as the conflict Spurs
Caught slipping bitch, stop flinching
Outta quit jumping play, like Tim Duncan
Glare into his eyes body language look surprised and The way the nigga lying he could gas a brick oven
