about

Producer Amerigo Gazaway and Napoleon Da Legend flex their creative chemistry on a new collaborative project, “The World Changed”.

Connecting on the outset of the Covid pandemic, the duo’s rapper-producer formula showcases NDL’s introspective lyricism while highlighting Gazaway’s growth and evolution as a beatsmith.

“Amerigo and I connected in a time of great turmoil and change both on a planetary scale but also on a personal scale in both our lives. His ear for highlighting the “soul” of a sample really gave me the space to dial into the many emotions I was sorting through during that period.” - Napoleon Da Legend

Working in tandem to keep the cohesion heard throughout the album’s 16 song tracklist, NDL finds his pocket on a range of emotions over versatile beats composed with Gazaway’s signature nuances, scratch hooks and interview soundbites.

“This is an album about survival...it’s about navigating and adapting to an ever-changing world while struggling to maintain one’s sanity and peace of mind. Napoleon is a true master of his craft as a poet/storyteller and I think that’s something that really shines through on this record." - Amerigo Gazaway

With assists from vocalist La Bruja, Brooklyn’s Skyzoo, and three appearances from rapper Awon, 'The World Changed' delivers focused bars rooted in boom-bap and soul.

lyrics

Napoleon Da Legend verse]
A diamond in the rough inside the pressure cooker
Set sail, going wherever the weather took us
We got dreams that father time tries to take from us
People change little patience losing faith in us
Takes a lot of guts to go against the grain
And when you shine and get some sun gotta accept the rain
Chasing money bags hoping to be safe from pain
My soul exhausted no longer wanna play the game
Chasing fame as a prescription to my mental sickness
When you caught up it’s hard to separate fact from fiction
Snakes try to gaslight you turn around then rap like you
Get a little bit of light friends from ya past write you
As for me I always been a black sheep
The path deep wouldn’t do it different if you asked me
I’m in the backseat destination somewhere
If see me in ya hood know it took
Blood sweat and tears to come there

[Napoleon Da Legend hook]
On the rooftop my view so fly
Swear a 100 dollar bills were just falling from the sky
Am I living in a dream?
Got me thinking am I living in a dream?
On the rooftop my view so fly
Swear a 100 dollar bills were just falling from the sky
Am I living in a dream?
It seems real but am I living in a dream?

[Napoleon Da Legend verse]
Lights cameras and action glitters and gold
Flip side so many horror stories never been told
The games a sink hole where money and success an ideal
Still steel sharpen steel real recognize real
We journeymen uncharted water we sail
Not knowing the beauty or ugly that this road will reveal
Friendships are strained stress will put friction on ya brain
If you ever played it safe nah we are not the same
Sacrifices I stayed on path through the crisis
Filtered through bad advice and fought Like Attack on Titan
Then sun rays pierced through the cloud then it brightened
Was blinded but faith told me eventually I would find it
I did now I’m going all out kid
Plus I got a lot of love give
All we wanna do is live prosper and grow eat some good food
Laugh with all my people that’s a good look dude

[Napoleon Da Legend hook]
On the rooftop my view so fly
Swear a 100 dollar bills were just falling from the sky
Am I living in a dream?
Got me thinking am I living in a dream?
On the rooftop my view so fly
Swear a 100 dollar bills were just falling from the sky
Am I living in a dream?
It seems real but am I living in a dream?
