about

Moon Beams is a project by rapper Awon and producer Linkrust that takes the listener on a spaced out afrofuturistic journey through the streets as they exist today, yesterday, and possibly the future. The music by Linkrust is obscure, raw, and gritty yet beautiful at times composed as it is an alien operating on a different frquency. The accompanying lyrics of Awon only enhance the vibration making this musical offering one that should be listened to as a mix or in one sitting to gain the full experience of this genre bending journey into another time, place, and possibly galaxy.

Awon

Who do your root for

Who do shoot for

Who's the champion of the poor

Who hold the Ambien

It's a fucking famine

Don't get rocked to sleep

Nino alive

And Keshia jumping out the jeep

With Macs playing for keeps

It's a Van Peebles blaxploitation

Raps more vacant

Without me

Firing squad to those who doubt me

I'm Westworld Wyatt

Looking in my black Mirror

Calling Candyman quiet

In melancholy I riot

My poetry is more dope to me

Pheens OD

conceit May be your defeat

In the presence of darkness

Heredity the natural king

Riding in town 400 horses

Chariots for bosses

Your Maserati might pull a coffin

Paid for by criminal profit

I can't dumb it down it's logic

You pushing garbage that oil based shit

That won't come back after they wash it.



151 ft. Tiff The Gift.mp3


Greatest of everything Michelin star chef it up

6 ring queen red diamond in a steady rough

Lambergini V's so cold for the whip

And Dom Pérignon Rose Gold 96

That 1 shot top notch Hennessy Ellipse

And Christian's Imperial Majesty for the mist

And Fung Gold, Space Station toilet when I shit

That Pink Lotus Tiffany lamp 'cause shit I be lit

Take a seat when I eat fresh Tokyo Bluefin

S-400 Air Vladimir Putin

Stuart Hughes Diamond 1 button for my new men

MS Allure of the Seas when we cruisin'

That Airbus A380 to make moves in

Will Lowe British Loris and Livia true gin

Silverware Monogram Harley when its dinner

And Vicuña llama fur coats in the winter
Track Name: Sergio
One time for your mind

Check the muthafuckin' rhyme

Like a sun bet I shine


Awon

I'm on that Sergio Tachinni

Purple Tape era shit

Bow when you see me

Brim low

Beard rough

On my Frankie Beverly

Yevve Saint Laurent

Cologne stay smelling heavenly

Tempress in my deck

Rolling like a gangster

Baby Ruger with the wifey

Copped it for the wankstas

Intelligentsia in the morning fine coffee drinker

My old head still rock the rope

With the anchor

Stash like the Whispers

Spending old hundreds

Pouring up Obama Henny like it ain't nothing

But for something

Is more nothing with no passion

The wars coming y'all keep spending

While I'm stacking

And I'm gon make it happen

I'm the captain of the team

Facilitate the rock

So that the block is my regime

Double entendres double entendres

Cause I'm a monster

Metaphors will stop ya

Bars brolic like a Tonka

Awon set it

Never will I sweat

Fuck around when I'm swinging swords get beheaded

Magnetic Danger

Known to tote a laser

Teleport through the solar system

Bringing flavor



High off the fungi

I'm a war general

From planets above

Your sky

Metaphysical

Critical

Powerful Impact

I been strapped

Like bokeem and Bamboo

Rashard chopped up the sample

It ain't nothing but some dark shit nocturnally

Feeding frenzies

On some shark shit

Trading war stories about when the Narcs hit

Hennessy in red cups

Sparking on a park bench

Young wolves gather around to see

The dice game Italian sportswear and everybody got a nice chain

Wrist chunky double or nothing

Your hear the metal move

The block like Home Depot

We toting hella tools
Track Name: O.D.B.
Controlled substances

And the pharmaceuticals

Used to

Sling crack rocks

Coke under my cuticles

I'm the indisputable

Champion in chariots

With the foreign engines

Forgive me for my arrogance

Y'all are just embarrassing

Sipping on this Hennessy

Sparking up the gasoline

God gave me the energy

With my bible

I'm taking you to churches

Rest In peace to Tupac

Bishop of the verses

Nigga I'm your preacher

Ya pastor and your teacher

You gonna take this knowledge

Or you gonna get this ether

Israel issued split your tissue

If you fuck around

Bury you alive

You ain't know

I'm from the underground

Awon murder emcees on the daily

Just for fun

Every time I drop

On the bandcamp

I'm #1

Don't Sleep Records is the

Supreme of this rap shit

Link Rust produced it

Mics I got em mastered



This goes out to all the Old Dirty Bastards

With Packs in the freezer

And stacks in the mattress

A gun under your pillow

Same clothes while you trapping

Misunderstood you just trying to make it happen


This goes out to all the Old Dirty Bastards

With Packs in the freezer

And stacks in the mattress

A gun under your pillow

Same clothes while you trapping

Misunderstood you just trying to make it happen



Buss it down in fractions

Eye balling the rations

Smelling the stink of crack funk

Contemplating paths when

Them niggas start hating

Or them boys come chasing

In the house mind racing

Caking while they freebasing

It's the pits of hell

You don't enjoy the sell

Until it's 500s heavy weight

On the scale

The block is impaled with a gem star

In geometric shapes that could build a case and send you upstate

Wait but not patiently

Educate and elevate

The state of mind

For me to build I gotta destroy

Or wait in line

Nigga I'm taking mine

Bitch I'm straight divine

Supreme being who shine

So this goes out to all my old dirty bastard

With packs in the freezer and stacks up in the mattress gun under the pillow

Same clothes while you trapping

Misunderstood you just trynna make it happen


This goes out to all the Old Dirty Bastards

With Packs in the freezer

And stacks in the mattress

A gun under your pillow

Same clothes while you trapping

Misunderstood you just trying to make it happen


This goes out to all the Old Dirty Bastards

With Packs in the freezer

And stacks in the mattress

A gun under your pillow

Same clothes while you trapping

Misunderstood you just trying to make it happen
Track Name: Cloudy
I'm so tired of rain

I need a little sunlight

I dueled with the iron mic

Black clouds over me

I'm still shining bright



I'm so tired of rain

I need a little sunlight

I dueled with the iron mic

Black clouds over me

I'm still shining bright



My anxiety is acting up

I'm having nicotine withdrawal

I put the blunts down for a second

But drowning in some alcohol

Henny Black over eggnog

Passing out

Listening to gospel on the vinyl

Thinking of grandma

I'm not going out

Nothing takes away my pain

Just copped the new Jordan's

I can't wear them in the rain

Nothing satisfies the black hole in my soul

Nothing I can buy

No way I can get high

When I'm so low

Eating once a day just for fuel

Even in silence

My anger level is Run the Jewels

My time line filled with fucking fools

So cynical

Pessimistic people

Need a mouth full of genitals

I just need a laugh

There's enough to be mad about

I'm Fuck the world

There's enough to be sad about







I'm so tired of rain

I need a little sunlight

I dueled with the iron mic

Black clouds over me

I'm still shining bright



I'm so tired of rain

I need a little sunlight

I dueled with the iron mic

Black clouds over me

I'm still shining bright







The more you turning up

The more you need to fill a void

You make it rain cream

And you ain't even employed

I'm confused

Not amused by this shit on the daily

I don't understand people I know

And so rarely

Does anyone say anything positive

No knowledge no love

I don't see how they live

I'm the God

I'm the Lord

Slaying demons with my sword

That is pure liquid lyrical

Futuristic spirituals

A spitting miracles

Deconstructed gems

Catching the Holy Ghost

Spitting mutha fucking hymns

I'm so tired of the rain

I need a little sunlight

Depressed and stressed

Don't make me get my gun right

So with only one mic

My heart is on my sleeve

But respond to gossip

What do you believe

How was this conceived

Did elites really achieve

Controlling the population

So consumers we will breed
Track Name: Burning Big Faces
Burning big faces

Dodging fed cases

Betting on races

Jays with leather laces

Feeling like Pablo

Counting up guapo

Rap El Chapo

Sunny side Lotso

Got it on lock though

Jumbo shrimp in my nachos

Lobster tail meat in my tacos

Pop vintage bottles

Champagne pouring

Even old schools foreign

That diesel stay roaring

Norma Bates Benzo

Cop wifey Kenzo

Kaws one originals

Pink panther criminals

No new friends though

Tints on the windows

Don't party where they try to say

We can't blow indo

5 panel brim low

Corners I'm a bend slow

Then open up on the straight away

For the win yo

Top of the totem pole

Awon broke the mold

Whack rappers hope I fold

Even Midas flow is gold



When the bass heavy and the beats keep booming

Equalizer in the red streets keep moving

We turn it up

We burn it up

We turn it up

We burn it up


When the bass heavy and the beats keep booming

Equalizer in the red streets keep moving

We turn it up

We burn it up

We turn it up

We burn it up
Track Name: Outer Realms
Awon in full effect

Catch wreck on square

4 connect on decks

Link perplex

More

I heard some niggas stressed

When I'm vex

Come and test and I make sure your vest will catch more




I pledge allegiance to the beat

It keep booming

Lyrically defeat my advisories

Keep moving

Grab the microphone

Get in a zone and keep grooving

Blessed by the funk

Resurrected from the ruins

The emcee apocalypse

They say I'm inhuman

Straight from the mothership

Planetary doom is inevitable

When the incredible get to spewing

Toxic sludge lyrical drugs

That keep you tuned in

This is that Captain Hook

Riot super pirate rhyme

Off the East China Sea

Ransom in my diatribe

The impossible like walking dead

Get it you die alive

super ghost pepper shit

So hot I make you cry inside

San Pellegino couldn't cool you

If you swallowed 5

You won't understand it

Until you see me spitting live

Until you see me getting live

Hands up keep high

Crowd surfing

Adrenaline pumping

Because you feel the vibe

When I grip

The mic 1 -2

And then you check rhyme


Awon in full effect

Catch wreck on square

4 connect on decks

Link perplex

More

I heard some niggas stressed

When I'm vex

Come and test and I make sure your vest will catch more




Awon in full effect

The poet lyrical miracle in this day and time

My frame of mind is out work them than the game is mine

You can't knock it if it's dope

It's undeniable

Your records flop

Cause your followers unreliable

This is applicable

To rappers at home coming

And the student body asking each

Other why it's you

And you can come talking

All the tough shit you want

Truth is these lil niggas ain't buying you

I see it when I'm riding through

I see it in them comments too

They don't fuck with you Jody

And I'm an honest dude

So grow up baby boy say hi

To your mama too

Tell her save the big piece of chicken

Cause I'm sliding through

Maybe turn up your music tonight

So we don't bother you
Track Name: Space Bass
Told you once

Like I did before

Awon here with straight up raw

Hear the beat they hit the floor

Hand in the air like gimmie some more

Gimmie some more that Busta Rhyme

Hit you like Whoo Ha

If you fuck with mine

Tuck your shine we RBG

I'm Edi Amine if you come at me

Got the bounce

And enough degree

Times 33 and a 3rd you see

I'm out of bounds

I'm off the grid

I'm over your head

I sauce your lid

Like Campbell's Soup

That Wharhol Paint

Roll my dank

Pour my drank

You pay for the show

Might come and faint

You leaving stank

You leaving rank

They sweat in here

It's hot as hell

They jump around when I rock the bells

Im world renown

So is my team

Millions of hits

Millions of streams

You know you pop

When they tat your name

But fuck the fame

Just tuck your chain

No flash round here

Just beats and rhymes

Sellout of that merch

Don't Sleep design

You sleep and find

We on the grind

Insomniacs in the laundry mat

Washing show money

To avoid the tax

Tell Uncle Sam I'll get him back
