Track Name: My People
Nowadays I make a lil money
White people money
But these white people are only comfortable with me because I talk like my mom
My mom who is white
And I love her to death
But these people who give me money don't really like My People
My People who are darker
My People in my country
My People stuck in Chile
My People who don't identify as men or women
My People with afros on their heads
My People who are elders
My People who like men & women
What are you going to say when you hear I'm like My People ?
I'm like My People
I'm NOT like your People
Your People are blatantly FUCKED UP
Your People don't know how to respect the friends that I have
Your People spy on us
Your People are judgemental
Your People are liars
Your People don't actually love My People
Your People PRETEND to love us
Your People don't actually love My People
Your People pretend to love us
Track Name: Grand Prix
Gade ki jan ki ap retounen sou ou
Ak yon ti-ponch epi yon soup joumou
Sa se ayiti ki ap pale aveou
Se sa ki sa epi nou la oui la (nou la oui la granma)

Ou konnen sa m di
Mezanmi

Le m rive lakay m mete yon ti mizik
M manje calalou epi m sezi
Lem fini ak sa m ale nan maket
Manje ti bannann epi se sa ki sa man

Pran sanw monchè
Pran sanw monchè take it easy 

Pran sanw monchè
Tout bagay an fòm la

Pran sanw monchè
Granma toujou di
Take it easy

Pran sanw monchè
Lavi a pa woz
Donc, take it easy
Pran sanw
Pran sanw monchè

Pran sanw monchè

Track Name: Sunshine
I wake up extra early in the morning
So that sunlight hits my soul
I wait patiently for things to come to fruition
Surround yourself with love

Sunshine coming your way 'cause you put in work
Whatever you searching for out there, it's searching for you too

Sunshine coming your way 'cause you put in work
Whatever you searching for out there, it's searching for you too

I pray that my family prospers
They did em' really wrong
I stay careful of who I let in my life
Truly affects my soul (my soul)

Sunshine coming your way 'cause you put in work
Whatever you searching for out there, it's searching for you too
