about

LeoLex und L One geht es nicht darum, aktuellen Trends zu folgen. Sie wissen, was ihnen gefällt und verfeinern auf ihrem Doppelalbum lieber die Grundrezeptur, polieren sie und geben ihr einen neuen Glanz.

„Kompass“ ist ein unaufgeregtes und bodenständiges Rap-Album, das den Golden-Era-Flavour mit zeitgenössischen Inhalten und modernen SP1200-Produktionen vereint. In den 25 Tracks wird über die Widersprüchlichkeiten des Lebens reflektiert und die persönliche Weiterentwicklung der Künstler festgehalten, ohne die Zuhörer in eine vorgefertigte Richtung zu drängen. Vielmehr soll die Platte motivieren, sich intensiver mit sich selbst und seinem Umfeld auseinanderzusetzen. Denn Ziele sind verschieden, verändern sich und wenn du dann doch einmal ankommst, lässt die nächste Herausforderung eh nicht lange auf sich warten. Also Ruhe bewahren, fleißig hinterfragen und „one day at a time“.

Track Name: 100.000
First contact __ the start is quite simple /
Put the needle on the record and that's it for the silence /
I deliver, everything creamy full of vanilla, filling tracks with syllables /
they fall off the lip, according to the motto 'out of the mouth off the mind'/ lumps evaporate deep down inside me and disappear in the wind / knots untangle themselves, from dull and dreary to it doesn't get any better than this / you need it absolutely/
I don't need anything /
do double shifts and reach my limits /
hopefully not, because L One and LeoLex, the combination so sick /
Thunder and lightning , is it due to our fundamental serenity? /
maybe, late evening alone at home until the muse stops by /
hands off my substances /
Swagger too curvy within an absurd mainstream culture /
like a bouquet of clichés one hundred thousand ideas and one sentence /

Suspicion of being obsessed over writing lyrics /
with a little imagination I put a picture on every bar /
keeping it thorough, progress put into words /
one hundred thousand ideas and a sentence /
imagination, obsessed over writing lyrics /
one hundred thousand ideas and one sentence/
progress put into words /

I reach a strange area of consciousness, diving into unlimited reality / immersed in mystical streams _ fantasy worlds /
crazy vocabulary dug up and meticulously transferred /
with chalk on boards , stashed for posterity /
the west is going under, what a surprise /
conformal robots with blood on their hands /
the figure in my mirror speaks volumes and assures me /
that everything is okay, that everything is too late /
aiming high, the growth finite like Tetris /
understatements forgotten, people are greedy and arrogant/
obstruct ways with a 'plate mine fetish' /
there's a rule for everything, and contracts, finicky/
doing exactly what the scene talks about /
Everyone against everyone __ until everyone is waving white flags /
From the idle eaves to the atomic rains, damn /

one hundred thousand ideas and one sentence /
Suspicion of being obsessed over writing lyrics /
with a little imagination I put a picture on every bar /
keeping it thorough, progress put into words /
one hundred thousand ideas and a sentence /
imagination, obsessed over writing lyrics /
we work on texts, beats and cuts until it's right /
Track Name: Die Wunder des Alltags
Take it easy
no stress, this is 'balm for the soul', climb off the chair /
and for heaven's sake take the rope from your throat /
what I'm telling you isn't that bad, believe me /
it's also suitable for sensitive ears like eating ice cream in summer /
beautiful pictures not a gloomy world full of paranoia /
everything is okay until your body overacidifies /
chill out, until they dig you out of your ice block /
Hail damage, killing time, let's start something somewhere /
no plan, this is not a movie in which dark figures beat each other up/
it's pure happiness like when people embrace each other deeply /
bad air quality in here, but at least it's warm /
I like my people weird and unorganised instead of them being aggressive/
with guns under their arms, man that disgusts me /
there's police at every street corner already putting on gloves /
and I put flowers in their Walther PPs /
pretty young for your age, half asleep I enjoy ...

... everyday's miracles, hammocks out, even besides the lane /
there's a never ending traffic jam, wow /
we release what the scene needs /
while you're killing it we are building something up /
and that is the miracles of everyday life /
hammocks out, even besides the lane /
there's a never ending traffic jam, wow /
we release what the scene needs /
while you're killing it we are building something up

Spontaneous applause we release what the scene needs /
While you're destroying everything we're building something up /
The input is diligently flowing until content is dammed up /
and a year turns into a minute, open your eyes, this it what it looks like/
when letters paint pictures and when we choose words wisely /
people suddenly listen to what we tell them, it gets quiet in the hall /
sure thing, we can flow without a message /
but then why the stage and the microphone? /
Why do we do this? so much to do, the time is limited /
our monopoly develops by itself, no competition /
this is only for the moment, equivalent to a flame /
that burns into eternity, the essence of our daily existence /
it's about waking up now, for real? can't be true? /
dream your entire life? I prefer living the dream /
throw in the towel, there's a thousand excuses /
or go through with it, greetings to your haters /
only if you keep working on your craft, you'll become a smooth operator later/
Track Name: Kali
I lie still on my back, watching the clouds/
I don't have the patience to observe them in peace/
And I wonder if someone is looking down at me from above /
blood-red light breaks, the horizon darkens /
the wind fills sails, high grasses dance /
I don't want to go yet, clouded by thoughts /
and self-doubt, real vain or too thoughtful about the opinions of others / was the event worthwhile? /
do I spin around in circles without moving forward /
or is the goal to sunbathe on an orbit /
and chill, the universe grows even without me /
so reward yourself, turn everything off, when you're on drugs /
sitting on a couch or stop the self-destruction /
What a bunch of bullshit, everyone as they wish, everyone was once eighteen /
if you really don't feel like it anymore, grab cyanide capsules /
I want to change the world, not leave it too soon /

I want to change the world, not leave it too soon /

no shit, I've got a lot to finish up /
for example immortalize these bars on beats by L One /
experience the moment and hold on tight like on a roller coaster /
I get lost on spec and yet I have finally arrived /
I suppose that everything really makes sense /
but don't quite understand why they're such pedants /
loosen up, let go, fly in the wind /
I don't care who spends their days more intensively wow /
it almost seems as if everyone has to bite the dust /
but until that day I'm gonna write the parts day after day /
what else am I supposed to do? I go to great lengths with the styles /
and loose my sense of time /
it's time, I don't have to encrypt anything anymore /
what I think has rhyme and reason, make something whole out of the pieces /
the plot has no holes, yes, the film is not finished yet /
I want to change the world and not leave it too soon /

it's time, I don't have to encrypt anything anymore /
I want to change the world, not leave it too soon /
it's time, I don't have to encrypt anything anymore /
I want to change the world, not leave it too soon /
it's time, I don't have to encrypt anything anymore /
I want to change the world, not leave it too soon /
it's time, I don't have to encrypt anything anymore /
I want to change the world, and I don't need to own it /
