about

For those in the know, Aima the Dreamer has been rockin' crowds for years as
a vocalist and MC with groups such as J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science, The
Mamaz, Goddess Alchemy Project and Jazz Mafia's Brass, Bows and Beats
Hip-Hop Symphony. All of this in addition to her own solo project has
given her a variety of outlets with which to harness her energy as not only
a talented MC and vocalist, but also as a strong, feminine woman who easily
holds her own amongst a male-dominated industry.

As a freestyle rapper, poet, singer and versatile MC, Aima the Dreamer
brings her array of talents and influences to the masses by way of her
mixtape, available August 3rd, 2010. In addition to the mighty J-Boogie,
the mixtape features a who's who of underground and independent artists
including Lyrics Born, Bassnectar, Crown City Rockers, DJ Vadim, Bunny Mack,
Sola Rosa, Brass Mafia and many others. The mixtape, simply titled, 'AIMA THE DREAMER MIXTAPE featuring J-BOOGIE'
takes the listener on a musical roller coaster with vibes ranging from
straight up Hip-Hop and Rap to Funky Soul and Electronica-infused R & B.
This reflects not only Aima the Dreamer's versatility as an artist, but also as an
individual. "I would like to think that I can be sexy, intelligent, cultured, and sassy
without compromising any of those aspects," -Aima the Dreamer-

Track Name: Hip Hop Her
LYRICS:
How you feeling?
O.A.K.land to Worldwide
This is your girl Aima the Dreamer in the place to be
J-Boogie on the mix, I'm on the m.i.c

I'm a radio pirate
Imma do it right kids
I'mma start a riot
I'mma light it up from the underground/ urban sounds pounding in my heart
I'mma play my part/ I'mma start
In this Hip Hop nation
Put it on your station
Get up in your head like some deep meditation
Whooooooo
Thinking about the way I got here today with no ego
Know that I am here right now because my people
Got a friend to tell a friend/ lend a hand and here I stand
A queen on the stage with a mic in my hand
Understand/ this wasn't a premeditated plan
I just am who I am and I don't give a damn

HOOK:
I'm a Hip Hop Her
Spit it Proper
Let me see your Bodyrock
Till the beat drops
You could Pop. Lock.
Do it non-stop
Bump. Jump.
Drop it like it's Hot (2x)

You could drop it like it's hot
You gon drop it like it's hot
You could drop it like it's hot
Non-stop
Track Name: Brass Mafia feat. Aima the Dreamer & Emily Schmidt - Nasty Boys
Aima's LYRICS:

Some like em nice/ some like em nasty
Boys when they do you trip-fantastic
Don't mean a thing if the heart's plastic
I'll tell you what, mine's not made of elastic
It's meant to stretch only so wide
Only for those who have open eyes
And can see what a queen might need
Beyond just planting that seed
While trying to keep the vibes real hot
That's not the only G-spot
Bring your attention a little bit higher
Keep on going till you hit that wire
Mental. Electricity. Crack. Snap
What's that Jack? Spark that. Laid flat.
Oh the joys that you could bring...
But let me tell you Nasty Boys just one more thing....
Track Name: J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science feat. Capitol A & Aima the Dreamer - Out to the Bay
AIMA'S LYRICS:

From city to city, let me now define
To get into a W. Coast state of mind
Was once on the outside looking in
These are the stories of my soul...

Feel the heartbeat through my feet pounding city streets
Feel the magic of the local peeps that you meet
The Yay got queer, thugs, hipsters and freaks. It's got.
Poets, punks, protestors, computer geeks. It's got.
So much mystique for one place perfect. I got.
To use my Hip Hop technique to reflect. It's hot.
A melting pot of progress and thought. I got.
Caught between cement and woodblock.
Love affair, seduced I knew not
7 years the Town had me locked
The vibe. The sound. The beats had me shocked
The Bay. I'm down. You bout to be rocked
Track Name: Raashan Ahmad feat. Aima the Dreamer - Breath
AIMA'S LYRICS:

Give it beat. Give it breath.
I was born to express
Let em know I'm obsessed
With that quality def
HELLO! Wave your flag, I'm on flow patrol
An old pro, I make em glow with that electric soul
Let it go. Set it free. If it's meant to be
It'll bump. It'll jump. It'll clear debris
We take it down, with a chant, to the Town you see
It's the Cali-fly funk that'll set you free
Believe me, it's broken chains as they tried to tame
A girl's game that was truly meant to flame
I burn it up. Fiyah-spitta is my other name
I blow it up. Do as I please and take aim
Track Name: Sound the Alarm
AIMA'S LYRICS:

Crunk. Crump. Bump. Against all the anguish
Street slang bangs on the walls of language
Spanglish. Franglais. Doesn't matter what I say
When it comes to the heart it all translates
So I transform.
Co-create. Generate bliss from the scorn
I've been working on this ish since the day born
Mind don't quit, it keeps me up till the morn
A Come on
Leave me be. Now bring me home
Push me out my comfort zone
And when I call
Don't want to hear the dial tone
So pick it up
And answer to the unknown
HELLO?
Eyes open check it
Energy electric
Company eclectic
Movements connected
When the people stand up and request it
Rise up to the occasion and be invested

HOOK:
Sound the Alarm. Switch to night vision
Questioning belief, question inquisition
World's changing all the time. I Better change positions
Ears to the curb, and all the cities listen (2x)

Verse 2:
Now why we letting people struggle so many years?
How do the people survive on them blood, sweat, and tears?
Where do we draw the line on how much pain is fair?
What can I call a truth, when lies are everywhere?
When will the veils lift, so that we all see clear?
What happens when your race, it just all but disappears?
When will our time run out, with nothing left to spare?
How do I find an answer when these questions fill the air?
It seem like day after day and I'm running out of breath
And I'm looking for an open door within eternal quest
At best, my head is out of water. One falter.
Could lead to me being pulled down under and drowning altered
Now and forever changed, well nothing stays the same
I was born into a world obsessed with playing games
Battling my failure, my dreams are my rival
There's no need to ask, this is a question of survival

HOOK:
Sound the Alarm. Switch to night vision
Questioning belief, question inquisition
World's changing all the time. I Better change positions
Ears to the curb, and all the cities listen (2x)
Track Name: Goddess Alchemy Project feat. Aima the Dreamer - Lustre Queens
AIMA'S LYRICS:

3rd Verse:
Here come the Queendom
Representing Freedom
See how we gon leave them
Give it up am to pm
Set sail. Blaze trail. Check your email
For the details. Fresh females. Exhale
Blow your house down with my sound. You a clown.
I'm a queen from the underground with a crown
I'm the talk of the town. Spirit of the city
I'm the cat's meow force. Here pretty kitty
Can't miss me. Gottem saying, "ooooooowie!
She a better emcee than me!
In my white Tee or my black shirt
Beats make my body jerk, till my body hurts!"
Lustre Queens make you work, make you sweat
Naw, this is not a test
Got you begging to be on the guest-list
You guessed it. We left you breathless
Just a sample of the best lyrical fineness
Track Name: Crown City Rockers feat. Aima the Dreamer - Clap ya Hands
AIMA'S LYRICS:

2nd Verse:
Something about this place that we call Earth
Something in the world where we give first
Back to the homes where we give birth
To our children, the music, the vibe, dance and the verse
Something about this place makes me want to bust
Something fabulous makes me want to trust
The game aint over till the fat lady sings
And this is one mama aint singing a damn thing
But when it comes to rapping, get you all clapping
High 5 slapping, yes it's really happening
Double C. R. Who don't know who dem are
Came out the West to bump the boom bah
We the ones best to bless your sonar
Yes so fresh we done raised the bar
Sooo Blast it out your stereo
Bump it in the barrio
O.A.K. to Tokyo
This is the way it goes
Track Name: J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science feat. Lyrics Born & The Mamaz - Revolution (DJ Vadim Rmx)
AIMA'S LYRICS:

2nd Verse 1st 16 bars:
These sons of men bend the souls of the greatest deities
Lay waste in their wake to taste in power needlessly
It's getting hot in here. whoooooo.... Like global warming
Consider your environment your very last warning
Don't sleep. When death creep up your streets
And don't weep. When you're cheap in taking that leap
Of faith. It's a disgrace the way we stay sedated
And look into the face of the youth who we have fated
To inherit this grin and bare it faulty attitude
Take care of it by popping pills and staring at the tube
You lose. And so do I. If I don't use everyday to try
To move my pen and imagine that we could really tie
It all together. We write the script just think
Change the art to fit the part of the missing link
Pull it toward the ground it back into the dust
Add water to earth for your clay remold it if you must
Track Name: Bassnectar- J-Boogie remix feat. Aima the Dreamer - West Coast Lo Fi Rides Again
AIMA'S LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Protect you with my rhyme lecture, a musical director
Hit you with that nectar bass. Put some boogie in your face
Come and get a taste. Wine your waist
Feel embraced. Fill the space
Chase the beat. Raise the heat
We got you in the hot seat
Take it to the streets
To the steps of city hall. Breaking down the wall
Aint no curtain call when these time are so severe
We the pioneers of the final frontier

2nd Verse:
You all gonna make me lose my mind up in here
Get out of your head and let your heart reappear
Shift gears. Stay clear. I'm a love engineer
With no fear I use my tongue as a spear
To slice thru. All those issues that we're used to
Keep shut down. In the vaults. Out of view
But I see you, and all that you do
As myself. That's how I know that it's true
Track Name: J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science feat. The Rebirth & Aima the Dreamer - Leave it all Behind
AIMA'S LYRICS:

1st Verse:
Cloudless skies clear the path for your task
Whether good or it's bad don't nothing ever last
Fluid when you do it. Anticipating the change
Wanna get through this let go of the blame
So many right ways yours might look strange
Won't ever back track do it twice as the same
It came and it went, no need to get bent
On illusions of what this all could have meant

2nd Verse:
Stress less. Find the lines that unwind
Test of will and mind, time to leave it all behind
Let go. Let flow. Journey of soul
Life is the soil. You are the seed that grows
Strong in what you know. Made stronger but what you don't
Long is the road to be walked in faith and hope
Not just to cope, but to truly overcome
The everyday humdrum came to get it done
Track Name: All You Need
AIMA'S LYRICS:

HOOK:
What I need to do is just live my life
What you need to have is your folks by your side
What we need to see is our kids grow high
What I'm gonna do is get the beat and ride (2x)

1st Verse:
What you need is to believe
Tomorrow will be better if we can concieve
Our lives are one, they're interweaved
The deeds of today have no reprieve
What we need is peace in the streets
Stop all the killing for political greed
Erase and replace, put the hate on delete
Food, shelter, clothing, is what people need

HOOK:
What I need to do is just live my life
What you need to have is your folks by your side
What we need to see is our kids grow high
What I'm gonna do is get the beat and ride (2x)

2nd Verse:
What I need is my true love's kiss
To know that I'm worthy and that I exist
That my whole life is a radiant gift
Keep my eyes open so there's nothing that I miss
What I need to be is inside me
Truth sayer, world slayer, fierce emcee
Evolution of the heart, lover liberty
Words into action is my soul decree

HOOK:
What I need to do is just live my life
What you need to have is your folks by your side
What we need to see is our kids grow high
What I'm gonna do is get the beat and ride (2x)

3rd Verse:
What you need is to love your neighbor
No matter skin color or who they pray to
Everyone is looking for their savior
We all came from blood, birth, labor
What you need to do is look real deep
Walk your talk cause talk can be cheap
Don't be afraid of your truth let it speak
Not with fear but with faith that you leap
Track Name: Step Back
AIMA'S LYRICS:

Step Back. I'm on a track attack
I bounce a rack when my girls all in a pack
You can catch these raps on playback
Got you wondering whats a mamaz zodiac
STEP BACK
STEP BACK
STEP BACK
STEP BACK

1ST Verse:
Mamaz hot in the spot when we do the bodyrock
On a streets. On a beach. Or on a rooftop
We aint gonna stop till they call them cops
Even then continuing till the rhythm drops
If you got a heart still beating in your chest
Know the rest. Keep your pace. Well you better catch your breath
Now see. Going to be a long night when a femcee grab hold of the mic.
Might not let go till you know more than half of the whole
Grab hold feel yourself start to grow
Fractal funk flipping simillies
Silly me got you sweating so savagely
I'm a freak when I speak come catch the technique
Melodically unique it make your body weak
And when you catch my flow it'll break your neck
And now you know I cause side effects
Step step step step

Tell me now do you need more respect?
Tell me now need more time to reflect?
On these concepts that flex when I rep
On these lyrics that move with my breath
On this rhythm that bounce with my step
Have you hit it on the right and slide to the left

STEP BACK
STEP BACK
STEP BACK
STEP BACK

2nd Verse:
You aint really got nothing left
All that I hear from you is breath
Breathing in
Breathing out
What I could do it would make you shout
The way that I do it there's no need to prove it
Thought that you had it but watch how quick you lose it
Make you sweat from the crown to the ground
Break your neck got it twisted all around
Trying to get a little glimpse of the shimmer
Sound so good put your world on a dimmer
But that's alright I'll keep the lights on
So I can see your facial expressions
Put a tremble on them lips
Put some rhythm in them hips
Best believe that I come equipped
Batteries, and keys, and whips

Step Back. I'm on a track attack
I bounce a rack when my girls all in a pack
You can catch these raps on playback
Got you wondering whats a mamaz zodiac
And if you a Mack then you get thrown back
But if you're sincere then you might get a snack
Of. My. Intellect.
What more did you expect
Tell me now need more time to respect?
Tell me now need more time to reflect?
On these concepts that flex when I rep
On these lyrics that move with my breath
On this rhythm that bounce with my step
Have you hit it on the right and slide to the left
Track Name: The Mamaz - Scandalous
AIMA'S LYRICS:

2nd Verse:
I'm a walking wet dream
Got your partners blowing off steam
Watch me flow over them screams
Throwing down for the home teams
From the left. To the right.
Up in the club packed tight
Meet at the bar with a twenny-twen and we'll toast up some get right
Half Betty. Half Hustler
Rock steady rhyme buster
With my luster and my shine
Don't need you to get what's mine
I'm fine all on my own
But I still might take you home
Grown folks business
Me, you, and the missus
Track Name: Crown City Rockers feat. Aima the Dreamer - Bom Bom
AIMA'S LYRICS:

2nd Verse:
My folks in the Town getting down to the gritty
Aima on the mic rocking out with Crown City
On that Bom Bom ditty ditty
Always keep it witty witty
Don't really matter if you don't think I'm pretty
Cause when you get home you'll be like
"Damn! She was hitting!
With them word and that energy. The vibe she was spitting"
My girls in the front moving all kinds of things and
My boy in the back on their heads all spinning

4th Verse:
Come and get a taste of that bass in your face
Don't let it go to waste lost in space is the place
To be. M.U.S. I see
It all clearly and it's coming for me
This is an art form that can be used to unite
It doesn't really matter if your black or your white
Rhythm times the motion add the wisdom to excite
We do it for the love blow up your scene like dynomite
Track Name: Rattle
1st Verse:
Come on y'all ain't no need to fake it
Let go the Ego, the Fear, & the Hatred
Who's World? Our World! It's what we create it
Don't let a couple of Villains go & take it
Out of our hands their demands don't stand a chance
For my reprimand, life spans transcendence
I won't be judged & I won't be sentenced
Only loved, loved in reverence
These concepts, no they're not complex
& what makes you think I want to hear you flex?
& what makes you think you don't need respect?
& what makes you think you won't get reject-
Tion? Son, hun, I'm not the one
Don't be calling for a little fun
Don't be stalling me when I'm on the run
I got music to make and things to get done!

Hook:
Known to Rattle Bones thru Headphones
When it comes to Mics they get Blown
When it comes to Herb it's Homegrown
& When it comes to Words they get thrown (2x)

2nd Verse:
Down to the ground we put it in the sound
Love is where you're found, so look all around
So many chose the path to be blinded
Ideas living behind a closed mind
& looking for connection but they never find it
Working with rejection just so we can line it
Up. Looking at our cup as half empty
The way that I see it there's plenty
So back to the Earth
Back to the Work
Back to the Hurt
Back to the Search
The Search for the Truth
The truth is what your Worth
Your life is the Proof

Hook:
Known to Rattle Bones thru Headphones
When it comes to Mics they get Blown
When it comes to Herb it's Homegrown
& When it comes to Words they get thrown (2x)

3rd Verse:
You heard what I said, I said what you heard
I'm using the living word to move you instead
Of losing this living urge to groove you these Red
& Blue lights don't stop insight, Into enhanced heights
Cuz some dance to fight,
to break thru the beat. So take what you need,
Leave the rest to the streets. Cuz the best don't defeat.
My tests come complete for ways and means for me to meet.
Just to eat & live. Just to spit & leap
Cuz the way of my speech, is the way that I'll reach
The ones who will learn, the ones who will teach
The ones who will burn with desire to turn
Tables, from those who can't to those able
Capable of holding it down, keeping it stable
Turn off the Radio and kill the Cable
Know yourself beyond titles and labels

Hook:
Known to Rattle Bones thru Headphones
When it comes to Mics they get Blown
When it comes to Herb it's Homegrown
& When it comes to Words they get thrown (2x)
Track Name: Love
AIMA'S LYRICS:

Intro:
Mmmmm Yeah
You know, gotta keep those dreams alive....

HOOK:
I don't want to know, where we all would go
If there was no love, to keep us in the flow
We'd all be floating in a great blue sea
No relating ships insight to carry us free (2x)

1st Verse:
There is nothing undreamed of that has to do with love
So take hold of the words that I'm speaking of
I've seen lips saying it
Seen the trips caused by this
You're not really meaning it
If your demeaning it
Using it, as a crutch, got you leaning a bit
It can be addictive when you trying to wean from it
And yet, at the same time it's the milk of the mother
Got no other source to it then life would surely suffer
Rougher, around the edges pushed to the brink
It really makes a lover, daughter, sister, stop and think
The consequences of what could happen in a blink
If there was no love for the world to stay linked

HOOK:
I don't want to know, where we all would go
If there was no love, to keep us in the flow
We'd all be floating in a great blue sea
No relating ships insight to carry us free (2x)

2nd Verse:
Without it, a challenged passion for the pad and ink
Don't doubt it, we must keep the balance just to be in sync
With our natural cycles and our core soul rhythms
Access compassion, able to forgive them
Those who would trespass on unconditional love
We don't let them fall, but you help them rise above
Not everyone knows what love could be nowadays
Their ego, their story, standing in their own way
It's all about denial, and not about the dealing
It's all about the booty, and not about feeling
The sweetest ache to bear, your own living distraction
It's more than just a word, it's the greatest giving action

HOOK:
I don't want to know, where we all would go
If there was no love, to keep us in the flow
We'd all be floating in a great blue sea
No relating ships insight to carry us free (2x)
