Legacy is a guitar heavy song with wild melodies and a powerful guitar solo about what type of musical legacy he wants to leave behind. Alyasa-GK raps about his motivation, chasing his dreams and contrasting himself with other artists who create for money and fame, and not the love of music. Form follows function, Alyasa-GK is creating his Legacy through his love of music and art.
“My family sees me, what else do I need? This is my Legacy.”
2 Bet On Yourself
Inspired by the Toronto Raptors star Fred VanVleet, “Bet On Yourself” is about believing in yourself no matter what you’re struggling with. Remember why you started in the first place and know you have everything you need to succeed. Believe in yourself and in your dreams, no matter what.
“I’m creating not competing, all I am is all I need.”
3 Cradle 2 The Grave (My Way)
This heavy metal song is about living your life your way and not worrying about what other people say about you chasing your dreams. From the Cradle to the grave, never give up. Be confident in yourself, you have one life to live, so live it the best you can.
“We’re just trying to thrive, not survive day to day. It takes a lifetime to build and a second to lose, so when you hear this I’ll be long gone anyways.”
This heavy metal song is rhythm driven from the thick basslines and heavy chugging guitars. In Smorgasbord, each verse is a different “course” where he raps about always being hungry when it comes to eating the competition. When you’re aiming to be the best, you welcome competition. You have fire in your soul to be your best, either eat or get eaten.
“Welcome to my Smorgasbord, I’m going overboard. I’m bored of you, rappers this feels like a chore. You’re an appetizer not the main course.”
5 Perfectly Flawed Vol 2
In the title track of the album Alyasa-GK continues his story from the first volume. In this heavy hip hop song, Alyasa-GK raps in various flows about rebuilding his broken dreams, as well as his intuition and vision when it comes to his music. He raps about combining his art and music to express himself, and to get his ideas and thoughts out into the world. You are who you are, nobody is perfect.
“Everything I am, I’ve always been. Everything I’m not, makes me complete.”
6 Type Of Girl
This Pop Rock song is about girls who get judged by society. It’s an upbeat party song with catchy guitar melodies and a heavy kick that’s perfect to dance to. This song is telling them to own who they are and if others judge them, why not live it up!
“You’re the type of girl they make songs about, so this one’s for you.”
In this laid back Pop song Alyasa-GK raps about “Home” being where ever music plays. This song features his friend Jordon Woolley, who sings along in the chorus and background. This song is about how he lives through the music he makes. When you press play, he is with you, so he’s never really gone. So let it play!
“Home is where the heart is, home is where the beat plays. No lie, the beat is intertwined with this heartbeat of mine. So I am home.”
8 The 666
This heavy metal song was inspired by horror movies and is about Toronto or the “6”. Comparing the city of Toronto to a hellish landscape. The guitar melody follows Alyasa-GK as he describes the city he lives in. In “The 666,” Alyasa-GK raps about crime, drugs, violence, the government, and the people living in the city.
“A product of society, and the city made me. I ain’t from the 6. This the 666. We so Devilish!”
9 Triple Lunar
Triple Lunar is a soft grunge rock song inspired by the, “Triple Goddesses,” the maiden, mother, and crone; Paganism archetypes. In this song Alyasa-GK raps about the sprits, energies and deities throughout the world. This song features more piano and strings as Alyasa-GK sings along with the “Spirits” in the chorus, giving it a spooky feeling. It’s about respecting Nature, Earth and the Spirits that guide us.
“Is this fate? Life, pain, death. Death of the wilderness, death of her kids? We need protection from the nightmares. But don’t be scared, the spirits are right here.”
10 In My Head (Talking To Myself)
In this heavy rap song, Alyasa-Gk raps about living in his head, talking to himself, and constantly overthinking. This song is driven by drum & bass instead of guitars. Looking into Alyasa-GK’s mental health, we gain insight into his creation process, from him having constant “rap cyphers/battles” in his head. He wonders if the music he creates is building or tearing down the walls in his head. He uses his music to express himself, and to find peace within his headspace.
“This ain’t hip hop this is soul pursuing, exploring corners of my mind as they inquire how I do it.”
