about

(Johnny Cosmic)

KB07 and I have always been huge fans of reggae music and all the off shoot styles. That's what really brought us together and has been the glue bonding all of the different styles we bring to the table. The common thread is always a love for reggae.

Normally, you won't hear it out right in the music. It's always subtle hue. We love so many different sounds and styles that there's not enough time or space to dwell on one sound for too long.

What this dub remix album did was allow us to step back as artists and experience the music more as fans. Getting a chance to bring GooZe, Tommy Dubs, Doctor Echo and Frank (FCP) aboard and really dig into the reggae side of things. This process has been extremely exciting and we hope you enjoy the island twist.

Track Name: DAILY DUB (GooZe Productions Remix)
wake up in the morning time to get my daily hope
realize the sun still shines, that is my daily hope
see her laughin' all by herself
dancing in the sun with no one else
loving life with no concept of time
that is my daily hope


My daily hope
My daily hope


I thank God for food on my plate, this is my daily hope
I thank You for your loving Grace, this is my daily hope
I keep smiling with my head held high
pushing through the struggles and refusing to cry
I thank Jah that I am Alive, this is my daily hope


My daily hope
My daily hope


you could hope for a lot of things
for cars or for money or big diamond rings
waste all your time just polishing
but you can't take that with you
Track Name: DUB WILLOW ft. P.Tugz (Tommy Dubs Remix)
Not wasting time
Can't spare a dime
Trying to shake these dead willow blues
The scene from my window
Sorrow and sinful
What is a man to do?
Where do we go?
We're gonna find the one
Ask all the questions, demand the answers
Run till our time has come
Track Name: ROSE ABOVE THE MADNESS ft. Prince Po (Doctor Echo Remix)
Blessed love
Blessed is creation
Blessed is the most high unto every nation
Blessed is every color we must be patient
We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station


to channel our love
you know the one Im speaking of
I mean the one known as the unconditional
basic nature of this earth
ever since the ancients left us passages
to guide us on our maps like spaceships
nowadays you get confused by dominions and systems
sending mixed signals outward
like were preachin through a prism
not knowing that this is the worst kind of prison
settling on our differences
the walking dead were not livin
everyone seems to cling to destruction
promoting violence
steadily on the gun clutching like a modern day virus
at the same time we seem to be the modern day pirates stealing from the ones we love
and not respecting the highest supreme human being the one that is considered divine
its like trickery and we ate the apple smiling
but what gets to me is that
were all from different climates
professing the same thing with different names
I pray for silence and peace on these streets
not little babies cryin or
youths trading blood for money
like they got a license to kill
its not a movie
its real life and its tiring
i see the fire blazing so much
they pray for hydrants to put the fire out
but not until the purifyin is over
you'll know by the sound of the king lion
when the trumpets sound like sirens
titans can't fight em
cause were all image and likeness
no matter what they thought
each and every creed defyin


Blessed love
Blessed is creation
Blessed is the most high unto every nation
Blessed is every color we must be patient
We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station


but I rose above the madness
acquired knowledge of self


Blessed love
Blessed is creation
Blessed is the most high unto every nation
Blessed is every color we must be patient
We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station


lifes not always worth warring
or just fighting
its an up hill battle
and yes we gotta get to hiking
the way I always pray
is to the lord through this writing
and maybe just one day we'll realize without the sirens
stop the violence
Track Name: 27 MILES (Johnny Cosmic Remix)
27 miles in the devils shoes
feel like I got nothing, nothing left to lose
lost my smile my friend
and I gained the blue
came to the cross roads, which way do I choose


The souls are worn out
You can take them back
The hearts been torn out
And the sky is black
But through the darkness I can see there is a ray of light
Shining through us, it is the way of life
Free from hate and free from war


I'll just try to do my own damn thing
that's why I'm in this booth
that's why I try to sing
and I will try to keep that positive path
you can like me or you can turn your back


I don't care what other people think
I'm gonna try, I'll just try to sing
And I'm gonna do it straight from my soul
You know, yes yes you know
Cause I love, oh yes I love


keep your head up high
reach for the sky
every time


I stole the light from your eyes
wish I could give it back
my hearts been torn out
and there aint no way to put it back


cause love is everything
Track Name: NECESSARIUS (FCP Remix)
if your gonna leave please take your things
cause I don't want to be haunted by these memories
and when you walk out that door don't you say a thing
because the words that are said
just might make me bleed
i don't want another lover, no that's not me
aint got no lovers undercover, just honesty
and I'm sick of the lies and the promising
and I'm sick of all the hurt that this drama brings
I'll keep my head above water so I can breath
I'll fight for Freedom Truth and Rights and Equality
and when its my time to go and Gods callin Me
I'll lay my sword down with honor and take a knee
fold my hands and pray for all the friends I leave
and hopefully see the pearly gates opening
when sadness falls down like rain
know that I'll push the sun out of the clouds
just to heal your pain




There's a thin line between love and hate
And sometimes we are blind and cannot relate
I gotta pick up all the pieces even though I'm drained
Because the way things are going we all need a change


do we piece this back together or just walk away
how can you point the finger
when there's no one to blame
do you accept what you've done and realize mistakes
can you accept forgiveness or is it to late?
did we act out of anger and instigate
this final outcome of love and hate
can we change the past with future roads we pave
or are we stuck in this cycle and
headed towards our grave
we gotta believe in each other even though its scary
I really think that this way is so necessary
at one time in my life I thought we would be married
we lived so care free and our love was daring
now its to the point that I cannot find
the reason that were here and to this im blind
we need to step back and press rewind
but unfortunately I think we're running out of time


There's a thin line between love and hate
And sometimes we are blind and cannot relate
I gotta pick up all the pieces even though I'm drained
Because the way things are going we all need a change
Track Name: OVERCOME ft. Ras Attitude, Zack Walters, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Johnny Cosmic Remix)
And the day has come
And the day has come
When all of us will be one
Shining bright like the sun
We will overcome, say we will overcome

(Ras Attitude)

Seh with the banner and the sword and the shield
marching forward to conquer on lifes GREAT battle fields calling all rasta souldiers united, bold & strong
come mek we sing to Jah a joyful song
victory victory victory victory
victory, righteousness rules the nation
and now the war has end
we strive for conflict to seize
mek we gather safely
inna di value of peace
international love iman a preach
and the day will come fi everyone a go seet
and then we cut and go round
and just trample the beast
they can't defeat the a double t-i-t-u-d-e
unto the king Iman say glory be yes
unto the king rasta say glory be


And the day has come
And the day has come
When all of us will be one
Shining bright like the sun
We will overcome, say we will overcome


(Zack Walters)

we got stop signs and speed bumps and
road blocks and fallen tree trunks
if your engine doesn't work
put your feet on the ground
yell "yabba dabba doo" and
turn that frown upside down
i know it's easier said than done
with people like piranhas trying to gobble every crumb
society's cesspool's always suckin' us down and
we gotta keep our heads on the ground
and our feet in the clouds
and our butts off the seat
our arms open wide and our sluts off the street
but don't go crazy with the favors (why?)
friends'll eat you alive like some hungry alligators
definitely need some tlc
weed pickin' party in the lbc
with knowledge born and 3rd alley
we're gone truck along positively


And the day has come
And the day has come
When all of us will be one
Shining bright like the sun
We will overcome, say we will overcome


(KnowledgeBorn07)

We have too much frustration
too many trials
too many tribulations
too many in the system have put us in sedation
to not feel the effects of the present situation
war over anything sounds like perpetration
i cannot justify the actions of any nation
if the intent is to bomb another nation
or conquer tribes, societies or civilizations
war behind religion doesn't seem like love
if there are people being killed in the name of the above
so innocent children, women and men lets overcome
all the wicked ways of the world
that have made population dumb
by overstanding every bit of what they throw at us
and bun out all of this negativity and blind em
with the rays of the sun
shining down positive vibes on each and every one
cause each one can teach one and
one is what we will become


And the day has come
And the day has come
When all of us will be one
Shining bright like the sun
We will overcome, say we will overcome


One God, one name, one destiny


(Dr. King)

Something is happening in our world.

As you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of general and panoramic view of the whole human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, "Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in?" I would take my mental flight by Egypt through, or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on toward the promised land. And in spite of its magnificence, I wouldn't stop there. I would move on by Greece, and take my mind to Mount Olympus. And I would see Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Euripides and Aristophanes assembled around the Parthenon as they discussed the great and eternal issues of reality.

But I wouldn't stop there. I would go on, even to the great heyday of the Roman Empire. And I would see developments around there, through various emperors and leaders. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even come up to the day of the Renaissance, and get a quick picture of all that the Renaissance did for the cultural and esthetic life of man. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even go by the way that the man for whom I'm named had his habitat. And I would watch Martin Luther as he tacked his ninety-five theses on the door at the church in Wittenberg.

But I wouldn't stop there. I would come on up even to 1863, and watch a vacillating president by the name of Abraham Lincoln finally come to the conclusion that he had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even come up to the early thirties, and see a man grappling with the problems of the bankruptcy of his nation. And come with an eloquent cry that we have nothing to fear but fear itself.

But I wouldn't stop there. Strangely enough, I would turn to the Almighty, and say, "If you allow me to live just a few years in the second half of the twentieth century, I will be happy."

Now that's a strange statement to make, because the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land. Confusion all around. That's a strange statement.

But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a away that men, in some strange way, are responding something is happening in our world.

The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee the cry is always the same "We want to be free."
