about

Sophomore album from TekForce, Server Crash pt.1delves more into his personal life and what makes him tick. The artwork done by Danji's Designs, Daniel Hill, shows him being sucked into a Tron-Like environment. This is of course an allegory to things we experience in life. We feel as if we are getting sucked into a situation beyond our control. Through music, he's able to persevere through these situations, and even talk about more games and anime he's loved as well. Luckily he's joined by his friends: O. Super, Halo Sama, and Eye-Q to help him on his musical journey.

Track Name: WarHorn
Bittersweet Weakness/Need you every night
Killin my body ever slowly/I know I’m losin the fight
The bottle helps me cope/when things are lookin really difficult
Don’t how to stop it/force is truly centripedal
I’m just pitiful/I keep looking in the mirror
Reflection so distorted/I can’t make it any clearer
You got a hold on me/wish I could really let you go
My kids watchin me do it/mom said I told you so
Relationship has suffered/arguing over nothing
She can’t understand/I’m just pissed baby ain’t no frontin
I don’t even think the same/my brain cells destroyed
And Every little thing/just makes me really annoyed
All I do is pray/and ask god for intervention
One drink away/from my family’s intervention
I will defeat you/there’s no other way about it
Your army against mine/no more time to get around it

Hook:
Any battle that you fight/it ain’t easy
I need another drink/only thing that can apease me
Harder every day/but nobody ever believes me
Lord I’m tryin to quit/but my body’s feelin quesy
Wanna be the man/that everybody adorns
Not sittin in a casket/and the family will mourn
Suited up ready/I will take it by storm
I Gotta beat myself/soundin off the warhorn


So you think that you can beat me/no way in hell
I’m that part of your psyche/that refuses to dwell
On stupid promises/to other people you tell
Have you slip into my grasp/you’ll be sayin oh well
Had you going ever since/you took that sip to the head
I became your #2/like a pencil to lead
All your passion, creativity/you can thank me
Without my influence/man you ain’t nothin to see
You can try to put me down/but we both know the truth
The endorphines in your brain/I will help you produce
When you step into a party/we officially start it
Oh it’s hard for you think/that’s a problem uncharted
I’m your biggest fan/and a humble supporter
Now sit down at this bar/of course we gotta order
Fight me as you will/but we know who will win
Help me to indulge/commitin your greatest sin

Hook:
Any battle that you fight/it ain’t easy
I need another drink/only thing that can apease me
Harder every day/but nobody ever believes me
Lord I’m tryin to quit/but my body’s feelin quesy
Wanna be the man/that everybody adorns
Not sittin in a casket/and the family will mourn
Suited up ready/I will take it by storm
I Gotta beat myself/soundin off the warhorn
Track Name: Workplace Woes pt.2
Stuck in the same place/never will it get better
Feelin like my soul/will crumble and just completely wither
I do the same thing/brain ain’t the same mane
Almost at the breaking point/figure really what’s the point
Workin for my family/of course they appreciate it
But I don’t make enough/really can’t congratulate it
Workin but with no growth/guess I’m not validated
2 years wack raise/friends gettin plenty paper
Thought that by my midlife/I would have things figured out
Would be in a big house/and not be riddled with doubt
Be I was wrong/stampin loser on my forehead
Doin music/but it doesn’t even keep us 4 fed
The accolades/Don’t translate to paper
I’m not complainin/these thoughts are my verbal labor
Stayin strong/but I’m dead inside
If you truly understand/then come along for the ride


Hook:
I might as well give up/these people don’t know
Feelin everyday I’m livin/in a minstrel show
Trapped in a corner/don’t know where to go
I’m gettin sick and tired/of these workplace woes


Where to go from here/I really don’t know
I come everyday/hopin that they’ll let me go
Co-workers say, “Hey, just go with the flow
What’s the next move/Lord just guide me slow
Can’t keep hold/my girl knows that I’m strugglin
Rap career/ workin on it/far from the bubblin
Wishin I made better decision/when I was younger
But I hate taken orders/exclusively from others
Building in their world/when I wanna have my own
Leavin for the day?/Still supportin on call
Maybe you gotta job/that you love comin in
Your co-workers/are your buddies and your best friends
Sharin recipes/and talkin about sports
Or which hot car/got the best amount of torque
If you have that kind of life/I applaud you son
I gotta 99 problems/my job is all of em

Hook:
I might as well give up/these people don’t know
Feelin everyday I’m livin/in a minstrel show
Trapped in a corner/don’t know where to go
I’m gettin sick and tired/of these workplace woes
Track Name: 2164
The year is 2164/no music and people dance no more
Ideas are crushed/the individual is gone
Melodies are memories/they’ve been outlawed
All the leaders/said the truth would be in the songs
Kept the history of hop/for a hundred years
All the peeps died/with so many tears
Old tales that they spread/to the children
In hopes of one day/they could start rebuildin
A legacy of hundreds/ended up in the millions
But presently there being/’watched by drones
Every move that is made/can’t leave em alone
Society unified/but not for the better
Watched like a hawk/it’s a like they have a tether
Thing about history/it always repeats
Rumblings from nothing/heard deep in the streets
Might stop the heart/but you can’t stop the beat

Hook:
The rhythm is here/in all of us
Move to the groove/can’t get enough
Sound of the people/it feels so tough
Never alone/it is a must

They caught wind/of the underground movement
Government shakedown/backrooms held through it
Scared of the unity/hip hop could bring
Documents showed/it was really a thing
If they allowed it happen/it could lead to unrest
People standin up/after that protest
The kids saw tyranny/done with the laws
Music is a form/of a expression to all
Cyphers came back/and the b-boys returned
Head spins/runnin man/and even the worm
The crackdown/that they tried to have
Added fuel to the fire/wasn’t meant to last
The future is there/and it’s open for the taking
Beats and the rhymes/here for the making



Hook:
The rhythm is here/in all of us
Move to the groove/can’t get enough
Sound of the people/it feels so tough
Never alone/it is a must
Track Name: 011 Ft. Halo Sama
There has to be reason/why you visited my world
Crazy cause you’re/just amazing when I see ya girl
Appeared in front of me/glowin with a beam of light
Red hair/floatin there/Oh just glorious sight
Didn’t believe it/ it was too much and I passed out
Thought it was dream/ and almost tripped the class out
You didn’t know it/but I suffer from a standstill
Haven’t grown in maybe three years/that’s real
For some reason/you have had an major impact
Now it feels that/I am goin on the right track
So surprised/when I saw you as my teacher
But when you look at me/ see I know there’s somethin deeper
You’re really a alien/and I’m the only one knows
Moved in with you/secrets we can never show
Married by accident/but we gotta make it work
The Future is ours/with your powers there’s alot of perks

We explore forever you and me
travel different galaxies
but we'll find theres one my only, baby

No words what you mean to me
love it when you exclaim please!
Sorry for my jealously, baby
-

Your bods in stand still?
Thats how my heart feel
you know i'm on limited time
so I keep it real

But on the real,
You Know I'm on a mission
travel the galaxy,
but its you I'm missin

Hey

School days, you know we take it easy
cause the kids in the room dont know the birds and bees-ay
with you no un-ease, my bod, you the trustee
love you so much so im gonna share my pocky

you're my priority number one
no ones gonna come up in between this love
give up my status if it means being with you
cause in my heart this love is true

We're on a mission of love through time and outer space
can't live with out you, it's you I can't replace
Saiyusen jiko yo
Up is the only direction from here we'll go
Track Name: Ode 2
People seem to be confused/using classic misdirection
Moved by the retro/Never will I let go
Shift in the music/OCP lose it/Robocop infused
With the lyrical transluscents/Dumb down never
Lupe told to me sever/Organisms that are Mother
Maybe a little Earthbound/Can’t identify/
Because it’s not a part of Earth’s sound
Tear your innards out/Aliens another go-round
Dude’s faker than Go-Bots/Malfunctioning robots
Short Circuit/Johnny 5/dude I’m on my Roadblock
Yo Joe type of flow/Bald like Destro
Hubb gave me the track/I was like dude, “let’s go”
We can make another one/hunger crazed leviathon
Kill tracks with hired guns/survivors well there are none
Disc fully powered up/lightcycle modded what
I ride the GRID heavily/MCP enough


Hook:

R! For the people that remember all the good times
E! For the energy I put in every good rhyme
T! For the ones that don’t know let go
RO! For the ones that have a LOVE for the Retro



Movin like it’s effortless/infecting like it’s pestilence
Black Plague rappers/annihilate ‘em with my resonance
Member of the Goonies/I be kickin it with chunk
Dude locked in a basement/what more do you want
Your flow deader BeetleJuice/you couldn’t shine
Even if they shouted your name/about 3 times
With Lydia Deets/and the Sandworms
Watch the town burn/flames comin from the Dragonheart
Mic skills completely untamed/like the Juggernaut
Lyrics never choppy like/they spun em in a cuisnart
Roll like Jace/and his crew of wheeled warriors
Fertilizing weaker dudes/turn em into plant food
Got a Venus Fly Trap/by the name of Audrey II
Rick Moranis can’t help/see I went and shrunk him too
The past I hang on/with a vice grip
Everytime I rhyme/I take you all on a great trip
Hook:

R! For the people that remember all the good times
E! For the energy I put in every good rhyme
T! For the ones that don’t know let go
RO! For the ones that have a LOVE for the Retro

Grew up playin Asteroids/Destroyin all my friends toys
Super Soaker battles/slayin all my block/made noise
Handled with efficiency/Mental Deficiency
Bring the pain on brethren/Special Delivery
Ensures a quick victory/clinically insane
My rules can’t be broken/like equivalent exchange
Stepped on the wrong day/got themselves to blame
Predator in name/knockin skulls out the frame
Johnny Storm/with the flames/Fantastic is the claim
Born in the 70’s/Raised in the 80’s
Retro in my heart/dude you know I live it daily
Made me who I am/and I spread it to the masses
Never have ask this/I might teach classes
Basically destroyin/everything like Unicron
On the right track/I might slide like it’s schlitterbahn
Told you a second time/Ode let’s get it on
Track Name: RETRODREAMING
Life is like a mindscream/flows are part of this dream
Woke up I was screamin/created a mini crime scene
NES timeline/devine minds/twisted by my grind
Equates to my shine/maybe not recline
I talk about games/Optimus/I’m in my top prime
Form into truck/roll out/now on a decline/hold up
It ain’t over/decepticons on my back
Darkwing got em/gas gun duck where you at
Maybe in Duckberg/with Uncle Scrooge
Gold Splerge/Spendin money/Say Word
Traveled to Hyrule/Link is part of the rule
Master with the sword/Brain gone all aboard
Better with the pen/I’m killin all the hoards
Controller strapped to my back/analog’s where it’s at
Digital repurcussions/Castlevania junction
Simon looking for dracula/know as nosferatu
If you need help/well my dude you know I got you
Weapons at the ready/ let you see a pik-atchu
Rage quit on Master Blaster/Sunsoft release it faster
Uncle Festers quest maybe/gameplay it’ll pass her
Or it is better/Too many cartridges/right from the start of it
Playin every game/I put my whole heart in it
Late into the night/sleep loss/stupid move
Super Dodge Ball/Winnin again I show and prove
The Adventures Of LoLo/I play it on the low low
I’m old school like Hammer pants/and wearin bolo’s
Cartridges ain’t workin/blew into them heavy
Guess they ain’t ready/bell rings I wake up
Replay shake up/Went back to sleep
The next challenge/I just made up
Track Name: Confessions Of A Black Nerd Ft. Eye-Q
When I was little/I just knew I never matched the rest
A different kinda cat/never really was the best
Sports a little/but my focus always seemed shifted
On different media/t.v. and games specific
It made me happy/friends didn’t feel the same
The way my mind worked/cartoons were the blame
The many movies/warped the sensibilities
Thought love was key/and nobody was an enemy
Black kid/surburban life/not many friends you see
Because I didn’t match them/gave me the 3rd degree
My parents told me/to turn the other cheek
Called me the N word/rage was at it’s peak
Too scared to fight/didn’t learn it life
Instead of tryna fight/the other option was the flight
Addin to my problems/at the end of the night
Got that last match/with a tough Iron Mike

Hook (X4)
These are/These are Confessions Of A Black Nerd
My life/My Life recited in these many words

Eye-q's Verse
In my hood i had to go
outside an get that work

every Wednesday it was time
to flip some comic books

addicted to those character cards
the x-men universe

never acted like i was tough
i was a super nerd

So i had to put up my dukes
for fighting my truth

wishin i could alpha like flight
Dreaming on moon knights
with shatter stars

I lived in galaxies far far away
hoping maybe one day

the take pain would go away
or out of sight

i’d ride the winds thoughtout the night
an chronicle whatever I thought

thats how i lived my life
people telling me it’s not right

you see where i’m from
having the status of a nerd

was something you ran from
everybody wanted to be

something that you could see
cool was not a four letter word

it was the way to be
but no not me

I wanted games instead of sneaks
you see the nerd life

that i lived
was the only one for me

taking me to a mental place
a space that i could dream

something that could take me away
from the horrors that i’d seen

anime, comics an cartoons
my stress relief

videogame themes and music
they were my family tree

people say its hip to be square
like its not meant for me

Check your Nerd privilege at the door
before you talk to me
Track Name: Without U (The Music) Ft. O. Super
Feel my world within our living culture
We can dream it exceed it , until the world approaches
Take a form within my livid life,
That it was built off matrixing, and molding light


Were absorbed inside this culture,
Within cell upon the page as we approach thus,
This is music in eccentric life,
That it was built of dot matrix, of what was molded right


Higher than the ink from the stands,
These are the words of a man,
ink incites the pen in his hand,
influenced wholly by tv’s in the land
from the stories that we almost repeat
across the letters that we almost peak
in the books that can almost breathe
layd out across some film, and music becomes the key SOOO

Were absorbed inside this culture,
Within cell upon the page as we approach thus,
This is music in eccentric life,
That it was built OF MATRIXING, MOLDED LIGHT



Feel my world within our living culture
We can dream it exceed it , until the world approaches
Take a form within my livid life,
That it was built off matrixing, and molding light

Feel my world within our living culture
We can dream it exceed it , until the world approaches
Take a form within my livid strife,
Live again, from wind to wind and centered light
Track Name: Ex-Machina Ft. Halo Sama
She moves purpose/cyborg with a destructive force
Here to win/ Is it blackjack or game of horse
Tactical squad/a little bit odd
Criminals to step/but they know better
Flip kick to/disable em quick
Knife throat/their veins severed
Scantily Clad/just part of the deception
Invisible infantrator/your distracted see ya later
Can switch bodies/you’ll never know
Networked/nowhere to go
Get the target/on to the next
Little did he know/Kusangi’s the best

Hook:
She’s here to win/ain’t no stoppin her
The pinnacle/ain’t no toppin her
Technologically So Advanced/and uh
We know her name/Ex-Machina

Was born in darkness/never has she seen the light
A caged bird/always read about the flight
Locked her away/but she waited for her time
Creator wrong/wasn’t right in the mind

Pause

She needed to get out/Picked up every little book
Met a guy/who fell for her/glanced up after every look
Ava was her given name/AI was so far ahead
Thought he understood the girl/she had other plans instead
Opportunity opened/he thought love was bloomin
She left him dead/no oxygen/her situation improvin

She’s here to win/ain’t no stoppin her
The pinnacle/ain’t no toppin her
Technologically So Advanced/and uh
We know her name/Ex-Machina
