Prolegomena means a preliminary discussion. A prologue. Forged by a years worth of fine tuning and foddered by hard won struggle and conflict, Prolegomena is made up of eight bombastic tracks of braggadocio and championing witticisms. Buttressed by thumping and celebratory beats, nicoroc's lyical prowess and heartfelt delivery render a promising future and lucid present.

5 number code
ill give you the middle digit
leaping over you toads

i put em to the test
like a litmus
harder than someone with a lisp saying isthmus
they aint really ill
they just play sick
my dreams a shot of 151 i gotta chase it
i dont drop a rhyme
more like i place it
outside of space and time
not adjacent

sex with Hester Prynne
she changed the letter on her sweater to N

Track Name: Pot head Op-ed
this is my
pot head op-ed

sleeping on me but your girl thinks im dreamy
in fact when it come to rap im a deity
wonder why they cant see me
like stevie
if its on your wish list better rub a genie
back from the grave like the kid the crow
one life for another
quid pro quo
you know its a rendition
get em to gitmo
you know there listening in
big bro

this is my pot head op ed

inviting him in good for ya like a vitamin
laying down tracks for america like chinamen
i don't hang around you dicks like a hymen
going hard when they call time in
flames thrown till the name known
flames spit till the name stick
and to my lewd she skips
hey what do they call ya?
your looks could kill
lemme be your culprit
my sermon thrill like im on the pulpit
and im so well versed in it
that there saying that boy cursed
no shit

this my pot head op ed

your record was the rage
went out and copped it
what age ya gonna tell your style
it was adopted
foster flows
imposters know
i dance with wolves
Kostner knows
when the money stack tall
acquire stilts
now im getting my stripes
tigers ilk
juice the big apple
my cider spilt
beside my self with survivors guilt
next time i pass and you mock this man
hope i got a wad of cash in broccoli band
get my poop on
if you ask my advice
they shouldn't put me on
ill only add vice
living two lives
like my mother had me twice
lady luck blew on em
before i threw the dice
brains up in smoke
want my name up in lights
wisdom of the sage
like i came up with christ
if your whats the craze then i feel sane
forget a page
our library aint the same
rap gommorrah
no sodom
you withdraw
what i deposit a problem
there trying to get fly but i swat em
i have ta im afta the ring like im Golem
and it aint no toss up
i got em
pot head op-ed
your the gossip column

this is my pot head….
Track Name: Ghost Chaser feat_ J.B
Life is a knife and i hold it by the blades end
designed for flight
im the broken winged raven


psychic,despite i relate to cavemen
erudite glyphs of light
from the amazing maven


evolutions what im breeding
success is the cause
set the pace
yes im leading
best believeing
im the best so believe in
in I
i risk flow dirty catch a sty quick
cancerous mouth
catch the virus
i rip wuick
mc's that wanna try this
barry bonds with girls
chances are that i hit
no guessing i set sail
sinking battleships
no 50/50 catch me at the 40 40
letting bottles
drip da drip
like drugs in the IV
four times the mc i be
chance of falling off
direct opposite of likely
verses always in my head
India Irie
square root of pi
do the math
you cant divide me
ghost chasing
im the phantom come find me
i live lively
they walk blindly



dismiss me as if your interest piqued
but vie evolved
like a finches beak
suffer from insomnia
i never ever sleep
anhedonia renders the endeavor incomplete
she's not dead
she just miss the mystique
floral re arranger
i breach her boutique
sub marinal
im peering through a periscope
this here sincere
hope it aint in varicose
reign in a new era of hysteria
his insignia threatens there agenda
by the end of the addendum their
incensed and intensely defensive etcetera
but at this high an altitude
i don't gotta adapt to the ingratitude
tackle truths
but such is my aptitude
exhale intel that apples used
very similar to
the indiginousness
of a didgeredoo
your listening to
the prince of vicissitudes
amidst being transfixed
in a visceral mood

Life is a knife and i hold it by the blades end
designed for flight
im the broken winged raven
Ghost chaser
Psychic despite i relate to cavemen
erudite glyphs of light
from the amazing maven
