(Denil Mayr) verse 1:

One for the culture/

Bring that Noise, when we rap about NORTH-EAST/

Miraculous, marvelous land where the histories built/

(RickSkillz) Verse 2:
39 million people living in together

Linguistic region, 220 languages,
secular region like a fully loaded cartridges/
practices, ritual-individual, traditional-cultural-multicultural, Uha/
Since we got the best flavours of the town,
if you critizise us, can’t never bring us down/
God gifted people dedicated their skills,
with the motive to reknown their artistic thrills, Like/
Shiva Thapa, MC Mary Kom, two of our very own,
knocked out punches cycloned/
When we rap about North East to the fullest,
riving the talents outstrech our limits/
In short, have faith and trust,
complications never arise betwwen you and us/
Well, this is just to show how much care do we make,
swear to god we the one that we never gonna break/
This is me, this is you, this is us that we need,
give a damn to the haters, pledge my homage to the creed, Yo/
Got some diplomats reppin for the peace,
cause we live for our dreams, we believe could achieve/
And I, hope that one day it all will be fine,
cause my love for my people, is like a faith on divine/

So, kicking in the bass, kicking in my flow,

Turn your speakers out loud, it’s a message to the crowd,
