about

Welcome to SassaCyprigo! Take a trip with her through the ethereal. Let your balance find you between the Jazz Funk Hip Hop influenced soulfuldelia. It’s a reflective journey. One to make you look over and question the lay of the land upon which you stand. As it shifts like sand.

Featuring 5 movement meditation tracks. Titles like Awakened (Wantu Gotu), CPT, The Hardest Part, The Presence and the more recognizably House cut Help Me See, followed by another mellow-getic remix of Awakened (Wantu Gatu) Lyrically creative the songs are like individual declarations. Proclamations of a soul searcher’s realizations. The processed renderings of inward outward observations. Five introspective songs to be experienced on the dancefloor and in your headphones. Music composed by Afrikan Sciences.

Since she began writing and performing spoken word in the early nineties, SassaCyprigo has maintained an interpretive style that is both abstract and familiar. SassaCyprigo's experiments in music performance are her way of getting to the heart of and expressing outwardly her deepest sentiments about the planet and her experiential world.

Awakened (Wanto Gotu)

Where are we going.
We know where we’ve been.
We know. We know.
We know where we’ve been.
Cant’s go back. No.
Won’t go back. Can’t go back.
Can’t go back; Can’t take me back; Get off my back with all that, Oh.
Step by step. Sign by sign. Word by word.
Sound by Sound through time.
Can’t go back; Can’t take me back; Get off my back with all that, Oh. Oh- no.
Round by round. Peace by piece. Round by round. Hope by hope.
Faith by faith. Luck by luck. Test, by test.
1X2, 1X2, 1X2
Keep on testin. Keep on testin. Keep on testin.
Got to want to. Got to want to. Got to want to. Like you need too.
Got to want to. Want to got to. Got to want to. Like you need too.
Got to want to. Want to got to. Got to want to. Like you need too.
Heart to by heart. Soul to soul. Mind by mind. Mind by mind.
Mind your mind.
Track Name: CPT
CPT

Don’t act like you don’t believe it.
Let it dawn on you.
Let in dawn in you.

Ooh, get smart. Ooh, get smart. Ooh, get smart.

I never thought. That I would see a day.
Where I would get the chance. To experience.
A little bit of what it must have felt like.
To be a Freedman. A Freedman. A Freed Hu-man.

We got to get smart.
We got to lead from the middle.
Ooh, get smart
Got to learn to lead from the middle.
Ooh, get smart
Got to learn to lead from the middle
Ooh, get smart
Got to lead from the center.
Ooh, get smart
The core. The core. The Core

We got to get smart. About how we play the part.
We got to keep in mind. That we ain’t on our own time.
Not saying it’s borrowed. No.
But it ain’t in line. With the kind of life.
The kind of life for living. The kind of life for living. Creative.

Ooh, get smart
Creative People’s Time.
In line with the
People. People. People.
In line with the
People. People. People.
Creative.
People. People. People.
In line with the
Get smart. Get smart. Get smart
Ooh, get smart …
Track Name: The Hardest Part
The Hardest Parts

The hardest parts is done already. The hardest parts is done already.
Now its time to just be…Free.
The hardest parts are gone already. The hardest parts is done already.
Now its time to just be….Free.
The hardest parts are gone already. The hardest parts is done already
The hardest parts
Now its time to just be. Free.
Now it’s time to just be. Free.
Now it’s time to just be.
Now it’s time to just be.
The hardest parts is done!

We know we got the ingenuity.
We know we got the guts. Go check your registry.
We know we got time. Check your infinite mind.

The hardest parts is done already.

Don’t let’em scare your Spirit away. Causing you to shift dip and dive.
Stay straight and narrow. Hold onto God like a Shero.
Cause the hardest parts is done already.
Track Name: The Presence
The Presence

My pen dropped like a needle drop.
My pen dropped like a needle drop.
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma
My pen dropped like a needle drop on the nasty concrete ground.
So, I kicked it in the gutter like a hoopty ride and kept on easin’ on down the line.
Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma
Easin’ on down. Easin’ on down the line.
Keep on keepin on.

There once was a girl from around the way.
There once was a girl from around the way.
She had to learn to take it easy.
In order to be free.
There once was a girl from around the way.
She had to learn.
in order to be free.
To take it easy.
She had to free up herself.
Free up herself.
In order to be free.
Free up herself
Get free. Feel free. Be Free.

Have you ever.
Have you ever.
Have you ever.
Have you ever.
Have you ever.
Have you ever felt the presence?
Have you ever felt the presence?
You can tell she’s a seeker
You can tell she’s a seeker
You can tell she’s a seeker
By the faraway look in her eyes
In her eyes.
Track Name: Help Me See
Help Me See

If you think you know the answer.
Help me see. What I don’t see.
What I could see. If I could see.
