One Time for ya Mind opens with a hypnotic soul melody, slowly transitioning into Zangba’s East coast vocals, which reflects an ambient street-grittiness. Also, the tempo is laid-back, and the syncopated drum grooves mirror West African beat structure.

Zangba – “One Time for ya Mind”
(Produced by Zangba Thomson for Bong Mines Entertainment LLC)

[Intro]

(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
From the streets to corporate, this ain’t a game
Corporate America
One time for ya mind one time
(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
Playing C-lo with Chase no ass betters over here
One time for ya mind one time

[Verse 1]

I threw my Cuban link on, it silhouette on Claiborne
My godfather ring on, stool pigeons sing song
This a southside thing, my boy in one-main bing
Building with L.A.T.I.N Kings that’s a mess hall thing
Gin and juice it at the Q’ doing the things we do
Before jams I breeze through, on stage get a preview
Microphones I spark like Biz Mark at Crotona Park
I bark like Rosa Parks in them dark days par
Aye yo Sal, Kentele one love kid without y’all it’s different
Terrific with a biscuit bussin trifling brothers riffing
My gold teeth shining beaming like a star who’s famous
In battles break down ya C.Y.F.E.R down don’t blame us
Sweet looks mad charm women say I be the bomb
Battle me you was wrong that’s every rapper sad song
Monopolize this rap game, crime boom when crack came
Z.A.N.G.B.A Thomson is my last name

[Chorus]

(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
One time for ya mind one time
(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
One time for ya mind one time

[Verse 2]

Look y’all I got ‘em all runnin’ like B.U double L run
Bong Mines’ basement is where I got my dope flow from
My bars packing ‘cause I’m harder than two little toe corns
Opening acts and pack house before I go on
In recording booths, I’m the truth, I be needing 5 mics sun
Compare to none probably ‘cause I rhyme like none
The grave cell holding Sal, hold ya head golden child
In flicks be posting wild Jamaica kingpin style
Leave ya brains bruise like a beaten female ya blood cruise
Inside a river clear blue 380s bust crews
Sun I’m poetry in motion an Afri-king like Kenyatta
Chicks mix C.O.R.O.C with P.I.N.A colada
Definitely I rock ya sleep like drinking too much vodka
Extraordinaire rapper famous like the Jacob Javits
I follows wise saying and from old timers I learn
So, hot I make mics burn like the six-planet Saturn

[Chorus]

(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
One time for ya mind one time
(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
One time for ya mind one time

[Outro]

(Zangba)
(1 time before I die)
One time for ya mind one time
(Oh, oh I)
From the streets to corporate, this ain’t game
Corporate America
One time for ya mind one time
(1 time before I die)
No ass betters over here yeah
We getting, getting, we getting money over here
Yeah, we getting money over here
