Track: No Limitations
Artist: Lotus ft. Liyah, Miami, Rum
Release Date: March 12th, 2015
Genre: Hardcore Hip Hop
Written by: Sarojini Lui, Nina Tarantino, Tealiyah Phuong, Amelle Sebert
Produced by: FancyN
Length: 4:37

No Limitations is an A/B side single performed by Chinese-American rapper Sarojini "Lotus" Lui from her debut studio album Don't You Forget It, previously titled Forgotten ceremony. The A-side was written by Lotus with help from rappers Rum, Liyah and Miami, who are featured on the song, and was produced by rapper Rum under her pseudonym, FancyN. It was released on March 12th, 2015 as the first song released by Lotus in over a year and the first song released by Lotus on her newest label, Songs To Live and Die By.

No limitations features the biggest female rappers of today, sans Sonyae and Chloe. The pack of ladies rap as candidates and not as a sorority, which i it has been mistaken for by many listeners.Lotus wanted the song to be a rap battle almost, intially wanting to include the 2 prominent rappers who never made it onto the song. Lotus explained to MTV News exactly how she envisioned that track and how it became what it is now instead, saying:

"It all started when Rum just handed over the beat and the hook to me. I pulled a few stings and combind a few of my leftover lyrics and immediately thought I should make this the ultimate rap collaboration. Of course I got Liyah on the song. Everybody knows us as friends but we've never been in the studio together so I had to jump on that. At first, my people and [Sonyae's] people were talking to each other and tried to put something together but it was just speculation, we never got together to do anything even though it would've made the track. Chloe was supposed to be apart of the collaboration too, over a year ago, but she never sent me the verse and I was really hoping for that verse. That's really what gave me my excuse for a hiatus. I waited on it and it held the track back from being finished up until January, after that I just gave up and called Miami instead. That's when it became Lotus, Liyah and Miami and I sent all the verses back to Rum. She played me back the finished product and out of nowhere her verse had invaded the whole damn song. I was in the studio like, "Where the hell did this come from? Throwing shade at everybody and shit!" She just laughed and etched her name into the single's contract. That fucking genius. What was I gonna do? Cut her verse out? It's her damn song!"

The track features the rappers exchanging bars over a "spasmodic beat" produced by FancyN. It is packed with a series of digital effects and ominous strings, which Matthew Wilkening of AOL Radio compared to "some old video game". The beat of the song lays an intense grim feeling of a weighty knock of the drums and bass line. The raging "clattering" instrumental creates an aggressive rhythm for the truculent verses. The production for the track is mainly surrounded by pulsating strings that allows for all rappers to exchange verse's in violent ways.

Lyrically, No Limitations has been described as "hardcore", "raving", "indignant" and "gloriously obstreperous". Critics found the lyrics intense and incisive, finding it hard to pcik out the true star of the track, citing a well done for all the ladies and at the same time a slap on the hand for Lotus not taking full control of her own song. Fans of the 4 ladies are equally split, causing the song to go viral due to many "who won this round?" debates on Twitter, something rather common to Lotus but not in this particular way. The song makes references to the Miami cannibal attack of 2012, Pizza Hut, Digiorno's, Loony Tune's Elmer Fudd, Nadia Berry, GirlSpice, Rocky Balboa, Muhammad Ali, Jesus Christ and his 12 disciples, Forrest Gump and Target.

Don't act like you don't take notice every time you hear the name Lotus
Like you don't take out your notepad and try to take notes when
Everything to do with me is taking over Twitter's worldwide trends
Internationally taking over with my worldwide reputation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation , setting some new limitations
We ain't in competition , you're just a student - I'm a legend in the making
'Cause my bars are on bath salts , snacking on the mainstream faces
Bath water full of blood , thought you said you wanted wanted something to soak in
Yeah , I dropped it , bummer
Bet you this shit'll still be selling towards the end of the summer
Platinum
I always win the gold , bitch , you're just a runner up
If you were really running shit , I wouldn't have to search for your bars and a couple of fucks
Didn't you know your flow's delivering like DiGiorno's , not Pizza Hut ? (Haa)
I'm a 5 star bitch , you're just a mut
I'm a flower bomb and girl you're just a cunt
Embrace the fact that my face is plastered everywhere
World tour sold out and yes bitch I'm hitting everywhere
That's Shanghai , Hong Kong , Tokyo , Bangkok
Birmingham , London , Glasgow , Armagh
Milan , Paris , Sydney , Berlin
Moscow , Oslo , Rome , Athens

Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Setting some new limitations
I got no limitation , I got no limitation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Setting some new limitations
I got no limitation , I got no limitation


These hoes so mad that they start talking reckless
I can't talk bitch cus I'm picking out my set list
They tried to put out my flame and missed, extinguished
I still be ballin on these bitches with a sprained wrist
These bitches must got amnesia
Earned my stripes like a zebra, you still all white, got you shook like a seizure
About as common as they come like Felicia
You the best? Bitch, be gone, take a trip to Geneva
Come back first class and still couldn't find a reason
On my Elmer Fudd shit, cus it's hunting season, I swear I'm looney tunes
But I ain't ever leaving, so you can have me committed
Seize my demons, Bedlam, go ahead and call the deacons
Realest alive? Bitch speakin treason
Conquering the world with my own damn legion
I'm allergic to phony bitches so I'm sneezin', every shot you took ya credibility weakened
You on the verge of depletion!
And when it's over and done, the story will be written
Hero or a villain you'll play you're only role, victim
Asian nation, Rum in Miami, we the underdogs of this story
But bitches stay tryna to take all of the glory
Killin lames cus the world's my casket and
Fuck the bench you can be the mascot
Lo lang will be teachin the classes
Principal, bitch you know you not passin!
Cus I'm soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
We got this boo you can stay on vacation
Poe on your career, bitch you raven
My stock stay going up while yo ass is in deflation

Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation

I got no limitation , I got no limitation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation

Maybe I’ve been slacking
They say Hotel Miami could have gone diamond, not platinum
But I say that ain’t too bad for some white rap
Dominating hip-hop and all that
Maybe I’ve done enough to take a step back
Competition dropped off, so Miami stepped up to the plate
Took her chance to show the world that she could be somethin’ great
Now I’m swinging for the fences
I’m aiming for the stars
I got them dollars signs blinking in my eyes
Designer sh*t and big ass cars
So next year you’ll see me flying first class
With Nads and her GirlSpice crew
In the meantime I’m in the studio
Working on album number two
Writing them bars for you to sing back to me
Anticipation starts now
That’s a f*cking guarantee


Is this what we doing in 2015?
Listen to your album? Bitch I'd rather hear you queef!
Cheesin' mad hard, Twitter mentions on fleek
I'm done declaring wars bitch I'm announcing defeat
It's funny how you really think you're tough meat
Like you been running shit since before the track meet
When you on the web, you stay acting shady
But the only reason you outside is cause you can't afford in on my meet & greets
I'm sure there's one for all but bitch I'm greedy
Reachin' hard for those retweets, ain't never seen no one so needy
This is Rocky's show, Muhammad should have stayed in
I think they like the truth better when you just playin
You claiming that you're queen, but if we handing out some titles
I am the Messiah and you chicks are my disciples
Run, Forest, run, I'll stick with walking on water
While my stacks are getting taller, y'all stay throwing tantrums like a toddler
So peace be with you, children
Passing beef for music like we running out of chickens
Cheapest in the market, still got nowhere to park it
You only top shelf cause we stay sold out, Target

Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation
Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation

Soaring ... past ... the highest elevation

Track: Reachin'
Artist: Lotus
Release Date: March 12th, 2015
Genre: Hip Hop
Written by: Sarojini Lui
Produced by: FancyN
Length: 4:57

Reachin' is a song by female rapper Lotus from the B-side of her single No Limitations. It was written by lotus and produced by FancyN. The song features samples from Ginuwine’s “So Anxious” and also "Get Away" by Kehlani. One the track Lotus raps and sings over the hard-hitting beat about an overlook of her career thus far. She notably speaks on her hiatus and her long overdue album, throwing in the prehook, "9 to 5, I'll take my time, don't you motherfucking rush me!" and even announces the new title of her album, "Don't You Forget It", at the end of the song. Throughout the track she raps about leaving her previous label and the ridiculous rumors that have surfaced ever since she's been gone which then leads into the amazement of how much fame and success she's managed to garner--so much that paparazzi's are finding their big beaks by unveiling her controversial life to the public eye, transforming the song into a boast track. This eventually wraps up as a realization of how much leverage her name has that she never managed to pay attention to, deeming her hiatus unnecessary but at the same time crucial to finding out just who Lotus is.



Never really knew what they were walking into, brick wall
Been tryna meet me in person but just can't say nothing at all
Yea, I got you on payroll but don't sit here and act like you know me
9 to 5, I'll take my time, don't you motherfucking rush me!

Oh my God, oh my God
Why you reachin? Why you reachin?
Oh my God, oh my God
Broke my leash and crushed these leeches

"Bitch, you fired, you already tired? It's my money that gave you that name"
All lies, shouldn't have to Remind, I swear this label shit is lame
The other day, I heard getting Matt off is how I got on in the first place
The other day, I heard that I had some shit going on with Li Lang
A gay profusion of lack of pigment, they still swear that I'm not black
Lotus went to rehab for crack
Haven't you heard? Back taxes is the only reason why she's back
Facts on facts, facts on facts
Facts on facts, facts on facts
Leaning shit about myself back to back, that's why I keep these tabloids stacked

Never really knew what I had walked into, brick wall
Been asking for my comment but I can't say nothing at all
They got on payroll just by acting like they know me
9 to 5, I'll take my time, don't you motherfucking rush me!

Oh my God, oh my God
We stay reachin, we stay reachin
Oh my God, oh my God
Fuck them stars, I swear I'm Venus

I'm the one, one
Took over with an article, only one
It's been a year, it's been so long
But these mentions still blowing up my phone
Yeaaah, what bitch you know could bark 365 miles away and still send them all running for home?
They be rapping and swearing them and hoes can't get along
But all along they've been writing for the same shooow
Got plenty more to show for it
You hold a record? Bitch I'm coming for it!
Been waiting for me to run the game, screaming "Run Forest!"
Lotus still the same, don't start acting foreign
Facts on facts, facts on facts
Facts on facts, facts on facts
Leaning shit about myself just by staring at these stacks

Never really knew what this was but I think I kind of like it
Ain't have no time for releases when I was too damn busy fighting
For my spot, for my plug but all along it was mine
9 to 5, I'll take my time, don't you motherfucking rush me!

Oh my God, oh my God
Broke my leash and crushed these leeches
Oh my God, oh my God
Fuck them stars, I swear I'm Venus

Don't you forget it!

Vanity: I'm so proud of all you ladies coming together instead of going at war for the hell of it, which unfortunately happens a lot of the time. There's so much talent in all of you and there's room for everyone in this industry. Congrats on pulling off a brilliant track, girls. This song just proves the guys in the rap game are slacking... pussy power!

OOC: Love this, the lyrics are brilliant. :D

OOC: NICE WORK FROM ALL OF YOU! Such a strong and relentless rap track. I almost wish this was real because this would go hard. Why can't all the female rappers team up in real life -__- but in all seriousness, this was really good to see and everyone brought their A game with the lyrics. Welcome back LOTUS :P! You're on your shit Semeria. Very impressed.
