about

"Chronicles: The Lineage, Life & Legacy" is the 2004 debut offering from Reconcile aka BIGREC (formerly of Mass Reality). This project serves as an autobiography set to music, detailing several personal experiences--such as parental divorce ("Split Decision") and vivid times of hardship ("Process")--and other topics relevant to people's everyday lives.

BIGREC's freshman release was set to take the listeners on a journey through his life, hoping to inspire personal reflection about themselves. In essence, the goal is for listeners to examine their past (LINEAGE), present (LIFE) and future (LEGACY).

Track Name: Intro
The Lineage, the Life, the Legacy, the Height...
of my existence is bringing the truth to the light
I make that music to move you to improving your sight
Bridging the gap between pushing peace & keeping the fight.
Track Name: Many Waters [The Heritage] (feat Omni Blaize)
Dear Land of Guyana, of rivers and plains
Made rich by the sunshine, lush by the rains
Set gem-like and fair through mountain and sea
Your children salute you, Land of the Free
Track Name: Split Decision
Feeling hurt, feeling pain
Feeling pressure coming from strain
Mom & Dad tried to maintain
But then, maybe I'm the one to blame
I wish that I could press rewind,
But see I can't turn back time
It's a trip, but I had to come to grips
The decision just wasn't mine...
Track Name: Process (feat Drastic)
Life is a PROCESS
Day and Night, fighting to survive
Heavy on the grind, tryna stay alive
Fight Through the PROCESS
Situations weighing on the mind
Frustration escalating over time
Incite you to PROCESS
How to really erock the mic right
Not be captivated by the spotlight
Delight in the PROCESS
Live life, rep Christ, rip mics
Give it Alll, lay it on the line
Track Name: Slave Trade (feat First Born & Di'Elect of Mass Reality)
I need my peace, my mind needs free
From slavery, my mind needs free
I need my peace, my mind needs free
It's been a long time coming...my mind needs free
Track Name: Good Newz
It's 'Good News' that I speak for the streets
A'int no real need for me to preach over beats
Just bring a word in season
to those unbelieving in themselves
Pull them off the shelves so they can see
This for the homies that's posted on the block
The ones that feel like they gotta deal & bust glocks
Remember there's a reason that you even breathin
Know the Most High
Know Self, then
Know Peace
