Joe Bocan – Repartir A Zero Lyrics

[Couplet 1]
Imaginer la Terre comme un jardin d'Éden
Horizon sans frontières, russes ou américaines
Où personne ne s'amuse à jouer à la roulette
À qui sera le premier à faire sauter la planète
Revenir en arrière à des temps primitifs
Retrouver l'eau et l'air, est-ce un rêve naïf?
Avant Adam et Ève, le serpent et la pomme
S'invеnter un pays qui n'appartient à personnе

[Refrain]
Repartir à zéro, oh-oh (oh)
Repartir à zéro, oh-oh (oh)

[Couplet 2]
S'en aller hors-la-loi, droit vers un nouveau monde

Ne plus vivre aux abois quand la menace gronde
Quand le moindre building ressemble à un bunker
Ne plus courber l'échine, avancer sans avoir peur
Imaginer la Terre comme un jardin d'Éden
À des années-lumière et ta main dans la mienne
Aller au bout du rêve, ne serait-ce qu'un instant
Mais faire durer la trêve et voir se lever le vent

[Refrain]
Repartir à zéro, oh-oh (oh)
Repartir à zéro, oh-oh (oh)
Repartir à zéro, oh-oh (oh)
Repartir à zéro (oh)

Leoniden – Iron Tusk Lyrics

[Chorus: Jakob Amr]

Lines are drawn
Your body hits the light
Before the day could ever rise
Iron Tusks are empty, are empty

Eyes are closed
The pictures in your mind are false
You'll never see the night
Iron Tusks are empty, are empty

[Bridge: Jakob Amr]

Iron tusks are swollen knives and guns
But their wounds are notional
Iron tusks are swollen knives and guns
But their wounds are notional
Knives and guns subsided iron tusks
But their wounds are rational

No graves by metaphors, no graves
No graves by metaphors
All books by folded hands, all books by
All graves by folded hands
Taste the sun
(Living as i wanted to)
Burn your tongue!
(Living as i wanted to)
Iron Tusk are empty

(Living as i wanted to)

You said that all is an illusion, an illusion, an illusion
You said that all is an illusion, an illusion, an illusion

You criticise an uncountable set
There are more elements than arguments yet
Lines will always intertwine
If dots are crossed twice
Five dots, eight lines build a house indeed
But not mine
It's not real
It's not real

And can't you see the…

[Chorus: Jakob Amr]

Lines are drawn
Your body hits the light
Before the day could ever rise
Iron tusks are empty, are empty
Eyes are closed
The pictures in your mind are false
You'll never see the night
Iron tusks are empty, are empty

[Solo]

Mike Mictlan & Lazerbeak – Suicide Jimmy Snuffa Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Do you got heart like feather?
Guts pump ticker tape
Talks change weather
Talk strange liquor face
Bottom dollar for a bottled water
Like an Autumn summer to an Outtatowner
Who caught a Cecil Otter
By the toe-truck with the farmers daughter
We old young bucks kick around the darkest fodder
Ain’t no future in your front seat
You might be the Underground King
You ain’t Bun B
You might run things but you don’t run we
1 2 3 4 5 Doomtree Emcees
Trick please DT love the kids
Stick to wings and teeth f*ck up biz
And get Bizzy Bone Don’t get it twisted holmes
Family Owned till the interest gone
Sell it to the mini-mall
Hopping out the kiddy-pool
Pop you with the Bop Gun
Laughing like a Motherf*cker
Piffin’ on a Large Blunt

[Hook]

Think that I really am
Born Alone Die at Home

Single Mothers – Undercover Lyrics

I've got a rock & roll apartment, yeah
Just four walls and a door
And a couple posters on those walls
From the guy who lived here before
And sometimes I wonder if he got out
And started living his stupid dream
Or if he finally hit rock bottom or is just
Tipping the scales like me
While I don't need much to feel successful
I'm good if I just survive the week

Heaven sent us signals through our satellite
Televisions
So we unhooked all the cables
But the preaching still persisted
It was laid out like a bouquet
Or a pixelated vision
It read
Love and religion, you built them up like prisons
You idiots

Casually confined
To some parasite's paradise
Pull me through this life time
Hold me like a nice guy
Well, Hell it has it's trophies
Yeah its warriors and it's saints

Who have spent more than an eternity
Trying to define and sell you pain
So we tune into talk radio
Pretend that we are learning
While the records that we love stay in their
Sleeves instead of turning
And my soul begins to cringe and hinge
Itself on the revolving door
Of CBC middle class absolvance and
Speculative economics

Laid out in the back seat scene
I've got nothing but the gutter and tires
Between the world and me
Crack a window, darling

Casually confined
To some parasite's paradise
Pull me through this life time
Hold me like a nice guy

Blind-sided by your blind faith
Had to bite my tongue 'till we could
Get away
Under the cover of those star spangled states
Well you're full of hate
But I guess
Jesus saves

Orquesta Del Desierto – Life Without Color Lyrics

Red was just her dream
Then came all the green
Everyone’s hand’s in the rainbow
Yea, yea, yea, yea
Sun yellow and bright
Eyes bleached into white
Everyone’s stares at the rainbow
Yea, yea, yea, yea

Colors and colors all run together
And we walk alone

When she turned to gray
Blue my mind away
Everyone’s lost in the rainbow

Yea, yea, yea, yea
Once you fade into black
There’s no turning back
You can’t return to the rainbow
Yea, yea, yea, yea

Colors all run together
And we walk alone

Red was just her dream
Then came all the green
Everyone’s stares at the rainbow
Yea, yea, yea, yea

Colors and colors all run together
And we walk alone

Cayetana – Favorite Things Lyrics

[Verse 1]
What's your favorite color?
Do you remember when you realized?
What's your favorite summer?
Do you remember how it crystallized?

[Chorus]
Now you're in love with the world
As long as you're alive
In love with it all
As long as you survive
In love with the world
Once you close your eyes enough

[Verse 2]
What's your favorite song?
Do you remember how it pierced your ears?
And those memories
How they resonate for years

[Chorus]
Now I'm in love with the world
As long as you're alive
In love with it all
As long as you survive
In love with the world
Once I close my eyes enough
[Bridge]
Will you hold your breath?
Will you do your best?
Will you hold your breath?
Will you do your best?

[Chorus]
Now we're in love with the world
As long as we're alive
In love with it all
As long as we survive
In love with the world
When we close our eyes enough

Carminho – Carta A Lisboa Lyrics

Tal qual o velho Tejo e as águas p'ra depois
Aqui me tens na espera de quem partiu de mim
Em ti Lisboa eu vejo as horas de nós dois
E sei não ser quem era num tempo antes do fim

Como eu, barcos parados cansados deste mar
Ocultam liberdades na frágil luz das velas
Que às mãos doutros recados que o vento quis roubar
Perderam-se as saudades, fecharam-se as janelas

Assim vivo comigo num rio de mim p'ra mim
Maiores os dias de hoje são menos que outros dias
Talvez por ser abrigo dalguém que antes do fim
Me chega e que me foge deixando as mãos vazias

E há tanto por dizer nas linhas desta dor
Que a voz do que magoa confunde-me o desejo
Aqui espero por ter o rio do meu amor
Correndo em ti Lisboa tal qual o velho Tejo

Mew – Satellites Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Swimming fast
Hone in on the buzz in ways you could not
I like you real silver-like
Oh see them fast, take off at last
And we get better

I wanna breathe in a sunlight beam
I wanna be with a girl like she

[Verse 2]
Step out fast
Hone in on the buzz in ways you could not
Know, my own electricity
You did this to me
I want someone to carry me
Oh, ill-advised, your desire
Tulip bell

[Chorus]
And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone

And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone
[Verse 3]
Remember when
It was then we sealed to unlock never again
The way we might on movie night
(Suspend disbelief)
And this is much better
(I can see you crying)
None of these remedies, I feel
Could make things matter that much
It's only right on movie night

(Solemn summer)

[Chorus]
And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone
Picking up the phone
And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone

[Verse 4]
Eleven past
I love all the things that are wrong with you
Know my own electricity
You did this to me
I like you real silver-like
Oh see them fast, take off at last
And we get better
[Chorus]
And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone
And I'd rather be a satellite
And I'm picking up the phone
Picking up the phone

[Bridge]
My life is my own
And now I'm always home
My life is my own
And now I'm always home

[Outro]
That's where I spend my time
What, you think I'm up all night?
That's where I spend my time
What, you think I'm up all night?

Communic – Moondance Lyrics

It looks like every star
Has a friend close by it's side
But the reality distance between
Is unimaginable far away…

Shining on our heaven bow
Surrounded by friends
Or maybe all alone
Alone precise like me
Precise like me, a fragile soul
With the attraction to the moon
Hanging high above
Far out of reach

From birth of time
Grand major design
That no one can explain
Nature's so devine
I am the one
My time has come

Moondance
A ghostly rhyme playing my mind
Moondance
Hypnotized by it's beauty in light
It reflects on my broken dream
Of being alongside with my star
And i'll play the rhyme
For all Earths folks to hear

Reach your hand out
Imagine you could almost touch
While our father the moon
Is on his monthly voyage

On his return
The heaven sparks dance
While I … a tiny Earth soul
Gaze at their dance…
Casting their glance…
Down on me

Escape into my private space
Where i can sit and watch for days

Imaginating, calculating, reality or dream
It's unimaginable far away…

Shining on our heaven bow
Surrounded by friends
Or maybe all alone
Alone precise like me
Precise like me, waiting to see
My lost star that once held in my hands
Endless sleep
Far out of reach
Never to return
These memories burned
A monument in time
Deliverance of the mind
Dissolve flesh, blood and bones
You are all and the above

Moondance
A ghostly rhyme playing my mind
Moondance
Hypnotized by it's beauty in light

It reflects on my broken dream
Of being alongside with my star
And i'll play the rhyme
For all Earths folks to hear

Moondance
A ghostly rhyme playing my mind
Moondance
Hypnotized by it's beauty in light
Moondance
A ghostly rhyme playing my mind
Moondance
Hypnotized by it's beauty in light
It reflects on my broken dream
Of being alongside with my star
And i'll play the rhyme
For all Earths folks to hear

Scouting For Girls – Make This One Last Lyrics

It was hard as we passed in the moonlight
The hurt in your eyes, the stifled goodbyes
And I knew, as you turned this was always
No parting remark, no shot in the dark

So take care of your love tonight, take care of your love
‘Cause I know, like a candle it can flicker
So take care of your love tonight take care of your love
‘Cause I know, if she goes how you’ll miss her

Make this one last, make this one last
‘Cause love really hurts when it’s past, make this one last

Life goes on, now you’re gone, it gets better
As the days fall away and the memories fade
I’ll catch myself smile when I think of a moment
That would’ve made you laugh and that breaks my heart

So take care of your love tonight, take care of your love
‘Cause I know, like a candle it can flicker
So take care of your love tonight take care of your love
‘Cause I know, if she goes how you’ll miss her

Make this one last, make this one last
‘Cause love really hurts when it’s past, make this one last

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, if you keep me waiting
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, if you keep me waiting

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, if you keep me waiting
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, if you keep me waiting

I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, if you keep me waiting
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
If you keep me waiting, just you keep me waiting

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, hold on, just hold on
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, hold on, just hold on
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, hold on, just hold on
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, hold on, just hold on

Apologetix – Back In The Battle Lyrics

[Chorus]
I’m back
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back
I’m back in the battle again

[Verse 1]
I’m drivin’ into town from home
I’m tryin’ to lighten the mood
I’m lookin’ for my future job
Someplace that’s more subdued
Boss keeps givin’ me grief
I think this car might die
It’s turning into a week
To make a grown man cry

[Chorus]
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back

[Verse 2]
Mmm, come and see
Eph-e-si-ans 6:12 memorize it, son
I’m calling on my God to fight this fight
Alone I’d be done
Even though I’m bruised and scratched
I’ll battle more

Quoting scriptures
Second Corinthians 10:3,4
There’s no doubt in my mind
That God’s Word’s so correct
No sense tryin’ to hide
I’m gonna fight them back

[Chorus]
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back
I’m back in the battle again

[Bridge
I’m fightin’
I’m quotin’ from epistles
I’m fightin’
Inflammatory missiles
I’m fightin’
They’re linin’ up for battle
I’m fightin’
My cage they’re tryin’ to rattle

[Chorus]
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back
I’m back in the battle again
I’m back

[Outro]
I can’t hide
I can’t hide
I can’t hide
I’m ready
Right now

Mark Wills – She Believes In Me Lyrics

While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says, "How was your night?"
And I come to her and say, "It was all right," and I hold her tight

And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I can change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, find a way

While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend, there’s no end
While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two
And I’m torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through
God, her love is true

And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I can change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, while she waits, while she waits for me

[Verse 3: Jay Critch]
Bitch want a bag, but I tell her forget it

She let me swipe like it's debit or credit
Hop out the Lambo' truck
Brand new Amiri stuff
And I'm poppin' the tags
Stay with that cheese on us
If she ain't eating up
Then I'm dubbin' it fast
Try to compete with us
Little nigga you don't make no deposits
Ran it up when I ran out of options
Runnin' down like "What's in ya wallet?"
Came a long way, hittin' stains in the Balmains
I'm with Dex, makin' plays like the ball game
I don't gotta flex, diamonds hitting from long range
Stay with shooters, point him out, and they all aim

Ryuichi Sakamoto – Bibo No Aozora Lyrics

眼差しの不実さと
気高さに溺れていた

狂おしい夏だった
青空も 声も
小さな死のように

これ以上愛さない
禁じる愛おしさで
瞳は 傷口と知る魂の

別々の惑星に
僕たちは棲む双生児さ

野獣の優雅さで
沈黙を舌で味わう
罌粟のように

切なさで胸を傷めながら
君の 可憐な 喉笛から
あふれ出した 虹の涯は
美貌の青空

狂おしい夏だった
手に触れる すべて
欠片の死のように

君の血が透き通る
野蛮な 瞳 見ては
途方に暮れる 真夏の楽園

Spice 1 – Thug World Lyrics

[Verse 1: Spice 1]
I’m platinum while I’m gattin, now that finger’s shining
It’s nothin to a boss to bust wit cut diamonds
I’ma dig it, ya fiend for the verbals, I came to spit it
Big boss like a 500 Benz to a honda civic
Comin wit it, hit it, as soon as I finished, they say he shitted
Lit it up and kept the slug from the jumps, f*ck a critic
Y’all opinion is like a asshole, I stick my uzi in it
Windows tinted, Took a stop at the corner for some business
I’ma take 7 suckas, Put ’em in a line
And add 7 more suckas, Who think they can time
I’ma take 7 more, Before I go for mine
Now that’s 21 suckas slumped at the same time
Ain’t no haters in here and it’s leather wood on the steering
We ain’t trippin, Stash spot heat in the ceiling
1, 2, 3, 4 TV’s and 23’s
You can barely see the tides, It’s the chrome when it gleams
In my thug world

[Chorus]
You can get it, you can kick it, in my thug world
Hustlin and ballin till the sun go down, thug world
You can get it, you can kick it, in my thug world
Ballin and hustlin till the sun go down, thug world

[Verse 2: Kurupt]
Skis, Spread out in the glass house
Skate through the streets like ice
Skates in the 68, Town rob skate
Rob skate, Bounce break, Bounce make the earth quake
I’ma show you niggaz bout a real g, Nigga
Most g niggaz, It’s still me, Nigga
Bitches all around this motherf*cker
Don’t make me have to clown this motherf*cker

You betta sit down in this motherf*cker
Cause this is my thug world, Gangsta paradise
I’m all hood, Nigga, I’m all ice
No matter what you said, I done said it twice
No matter what you said, I done said it twice
Cooked on like rice, Surround like vice
Kurupt motherf*cker, And the bitch is a broad
Even dick psychic bitches like deon ward
Thug world

[Chorus]

[Verse 3: Spice 1]
I keep 3 bitches wit me: Ross, Crystal, And Mary jane
Mary jane, Mary jane, You know you’re my everything
Smoke a pound back to back to back like the lakers
It’s nothin like a motherf*ckin old school player
Like the NFL, But I don’t rush the quarterback
I’ll rush the whole thing back and i’ll pick up another slack
Mo chips than mandalay, Rippin representin the bay
But baby keep givin me the eye like everyday
Eyes like brown and skin tone coffee
I’m sippin hennessy, Gettin drunker than nick nolte
Straight so-soldiers, Drunk not sober
Sh-shoot you in ya chest, Let ya wind free like oprah
Green ones break down, We ain’t f*ckin wit charlie brown
We ain’t rappin for peanuts, We want the meal tickets now
Narcoleptic, Sleepin disorder, Retrospective
Some niggaz try to ball in the game and got intercepted
We do it from dusk till dawn like tarantino
Hustlin till the sun wake up, The bambino
In my thug world

[Chorus]

Living Sacrifice – Haven Of Blasphemy Lyrics

Hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared
Deny consideration of the One to be feared
Abandoning the faith to follow spirits of deception
Their unsound teaching produce sowers of confusion
Prophets of dceit the word of God
Sowing wickedness reaping trouble from the rod
Though they claim to be the ones to obtain salvation

Their form of doctrine denies Christ’s foundation
Haven of blasphemy
Hollow philosophies
Captives remain unfree
Slaves of depravity, whose destruction draws near
Secretly introduce the lies some long to hear
Hanging over them are the scales of condemnation
A false balance of weighted abomination
Haven of blasphemy

Trocadero – Blood Gulch Blues Lyrics

Church:(You know what you could bitch about anything couldn’t who.
We’re about to get a tank and your’e worried about chicks. What chicks are we going to pick up man! And secondly how are you going to pick up chicks in a car that looks like that?)

Simmons:(You ever wonder why we’re here?)
Grif:(It’s one of lifes greatest mysteries isn’t it? I don’t know man but it keeps me up at night.)

Roses are red
And violets are blue.
One day we’ll cruise down
Blood Gulch avenue
It’s red versus red
and blue versus blue
It’s I against I
and me against you

Sarge:(I like it, got a ring to it)

Violets are blue, roses are red
living like this we were already dead
Church:(What is that music!!!…Im going for the jeep, cover me)

Hop in my car
it don’t have any doors
Simmons:(Shotgun!)
Grif:(Shotgun!…f*ck)
It’s built like a cat
It lands on fours
Grif:(I think it looks more like a puma)
My car’s like a puma
it drives on all (simmons) ONE, TWO, READY, THREE

Simmons:(SON OF A BITCH)
Grif:(SON OF A BITCH!!!!!)
Church:(SON OF A BITCH)
(THis Doesn’t seem physically possible!!!)
Tucker:(Holy f*ck, you team killing f*cktard)
Simmons:(You back-stabbing cock-bite)
(Is this guy a retard?)
(That Doesn’t seem physically possible)

Red versus red
Blue versus blue
Church:(I could blow up the whole god damn world with this thing)

Jamaica PM Andrew Holness Unapologetic About Dancehall Contributing To Crime

The Jamaican Prime Minister is doubling down on dancehall music, being a major contributor to the high crime rate in the country.

Crime has long been a growing epidemic in Jamaica that governments are often stumped with. The disturbing outbreak of violence is so outrageous that Jamaica is recognized as a country with one of the highest crime rates in the world. While this is not at all new and historically was spurred on by violent political strategies, the current government is calling for dancehall music to start observing a social responsibility to young listeners.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness was recently criticized by music artists and fans for a statement regarding dancehall being a main cause of violence in Jamaica. Nevertheless, he is doubling down on his stance and is having the discussion yet again in his recent parliamentary meeting. The Most Honorable Andrew Holness, also known as BroGad, seems to be offering a blanket response to the counter-arguments from dancehall artists who have reacted to his previous remarks.

“In as much as you are free to reflect what is happening in the society, you also have a duty to place it in context,” he said. “That is not right, and though you have the protection of the constitution to sing about it, you also have a duty to the children who are listening to you to say ‘man, that is not right,’” he added.

Holness implied that artists are selective of which crimes to lash out on and maintained that all forms of violence are wrong. He went on to say that as a society, we “are not yet serious” if we cannot see that, and our outrage is short-lived. The public has had the opportunity to weigh in on the debate on social media, and while some agree with the negative influence of dancehall music on society. Many do not concur with the implication that it is responsible for the spike in the crime rate.

PM Andrew Holness, Ce’Cile & Agent Sasco

In one retort, an Instagram user commented, “Kmt you can’t control crime an a try turn on the music. Move a gweh. Look pan movies, tv, games, plus a who guh buy dub plates fi promotion. Bredda u did seh we ago can sleep wid wi doors open. Gwaan guh fix crime an low the art form that is providing a way out, U hear nuh artist a seh kidnap woman an kill them?” Another more succinct comment read, “it’s all about the person mindset.”

On the other side of the spectrum, some chimed in to say the PM’s speech was “facts.” Interestingly, it is also a fact that even decades ago, when there were no artists singing about “tek up the AK-47 and dun it inna man head” as Holness puts it, crime was also at a high rate in Jamaica. Fueled by the divide promoted by political parties, even socially conscious singer Bob Marley himself was a target of assassination attempts. Marley sang about unity and love and tried to get opposing parties to reconcile for the goodness of the country. However, crime was still at a significant level because of root causes like poverty, lack of opportunities, and of course, poor leadership (parenting, country leaders, etc.)

Some argue that that was then and this is now but just like traditions are passed down, so is the landscape of a country’s culture and the foundation that has long been set by our ancestors. Oftentimes, we understand our parents so much better after we see how they grew up, what their influences were and how what they were conditioned to believe. The same can be said about the areas where crime is concentrated in Jamaica and why it has remained so. While it is true that dancehall needs not perpetuate the idea of crime further, the positivity that Prime Minister Andrew Holness calls for it to promote is also present in the genre.

Jamaican artists sing about guns and violence but they also sing about love, struggles, hope, dreams, and other realities. Fans decide which songs get popular and which get lost in the sea of the oversaturated music industry. That being said, while a correlation is being drawn to crime and dancehall music, perhaps it is an inherent desire of the listener that drives the song and not the words of the artist that drives the crime. One Instagram user who weighed in on the matter said, “Bro the amount of positive songs out there and nobody paying them any attention, people gravitate towards the hardcore music, that is why the artiste supply the market with that type of music.”

Would Vybz Kartel be the most popular dancehall artist had it not been for the fans? More importantly, did fans gravitate towards him because of his relatability which could only come from him articulating what already exists? Based on the comments that are pouring in on the topic of Andrew Holness’s controversial statement, some believe that dancehall is being used as a scapegoat. “Gun violence and crime was around long before man an man start sing bout it. Politicians always trying to point finger and blame the citizen them,” wrote one user. “If the artist dem stop sing gun tune today crime nah move and that’s a fact,” another added.

Some also accused the PM of being a hypocrite as many dancehall artists remixed similar songs when they were called upon to promote political campaigns during the national election. “Oh but dancehall can promote politics with the same sort of songs for your campaign,” one fan wrote. Others defended Holness and his agenda, saying he is not hating on the music but rather is calling for dancehall artists to discourage violence in their songs. Again, this is done all the time in dancehall as even the biggest artists like Vybz Kartel and Mavado have contradicted previous releases by encouraging unity and the youth to refrain from crime and violence.

Like businesses, artists also have a social responsibility which they often honor with uplifting music that never gets as much attention as they ought to. However, when they sing about “badness,” fans love them for it while the government hates them for it. Music is not the only form of influential media, and dancehall is not the only genre that promotes a gangster lifestyle, so how did it suddenly become the cause of violence in Jamaica? It’s easy to pass the blame onto a large industry that has a major influence on the people, but how thorough was the research that brought politicians to this conclusion? As one commenter said, “Artist sing about the violence and the politicians provide the guns!”

The constant pointing of fingers only ignores the real source of the problem. It is no coincidence that Jamaica not only has a high crime rate but also a high poverty rate. It is no coincidence that the most crime-ridden communities are some of the poorest in the country. Should we ask an inner-city youth who grew up around violence and later adopted the lifestyle why he needs a gun or why he commits crimes? Do we genuinely believe that even one of them would say dancehall music? The widespread discourse on the matter comes from varying perspectives, none of which take into account the plight of the ghetto youth. “Why we nuh talk bout the abuse and parenting and leadership issues… a desso it start,” one citizen questioned.

What’s ironic is that the national outrage stemming from the vast increase in gender-based violence like rape – something dancehall never promotes – is what initiated the discourse on the source of crime in the first place. Perhaps our MPs ought to armor up, visit our troubled communities and hear straight from the horse’s mouth what is actually lacking that would drive them to a life of crime. Here they might uncover the seed of the worsening epidemic.

Saweetie Reacts To Quavo Saying He Repo’d Her Bentley

Saweetie has responded to Qauvo’s claim that he had repossessed the Bentley he gifted her last Christmas in the most creative of ways.

In a recently posted TikTok video, Saweetie is seemingly telling the public that she still holds the keys to the car. The video, labeled “FRENEMIES PT. 1,” shows Saweetie searching for her keys and insinuates that her best friend, who she also plays, has stolen them. After the best friend denies taking them, the two embrace each other while Saweetie’s recent song featuring Doja Cat titled “Best Friend” plays in the background. The camera zooms in on the best friend holding the keys to the Bentley with a sly smile on her face.

The video captioned: “I know das wrong! Besties or Frenemies?” Quavo claimed he had took back the Bentley in a snippet of a track that was shared a few days ago. “Lil’ bitty b*tch, She slimy and she sneaky, taking back that Bentley.”

@officialsaweetie

I know das wrong! Besties or Frenemies ? ? #bestfriend #bestfriendchallenge

? Best Friend (feat. Doja Cat) – Saweetie

The snippet came after a rough breakup between the two rappers last month. The “Tap In” rapper announced she was single, following speculation from fans that the two had unfollowed each other on Instagram. Quavo responded in a tweet, saying, “I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best.” To which Saweetie responded with a simple: “Take care.”

The two did not reveal a specific reason for their sour break up, but when surveillance footage of the two rappers fighting in an elevator surfaced, Saweetie told the media, “This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on.”

Master P Says Hip Hop Need A Union Amid Death Of DMX

Master P is calling on rappers to get together to prevent further cases similar to DMX’s case. He has suggested the creation of a hip-hop union.

While he said that he is also praying for the rapper, he told a TMZ cameraman that a proper hip-hop union could help a lot of at-risk rappers who need support from their own community. Master P also suggested that DMX’s, real name Earl Simmons, an overdose could have been prevented. He explained his vision was similar to retired basketball players who often become analysts or coaches.

“DMX is an icon. I just hate that we have to wait for something to happen to one of us before everybody really starts saying how much they care and love you. We got to figure out how to prevent that,” Master P said.

He added that it was time to have a frank conversation about the way forward for Hip-Hop artists who may be suffering. “The truth hurts– drugs done killed a lot of our great ones. It’s sent a lot of them to prison. I’m praying for DMX and his family. I hope that people start celebrating these icons while they’re alive. Imagine all the stuff that we could have prevented for DMX to help him. I feel like hip-hop needs some type of union. The NBA has it. What happens when a guy falls off after he done sold millions and millions of records? We need that,” he continued.

To get such a union going, it would take a new education drive on issues such as financing.

“I think it starts with education. I want to really start educating our people and letting them see that– even LeBron and KD, Kyrie Irving, everybody that represents Black Lives Matter, when the NBA talks about they’re putting money back into HBCUs, I want to see where that money go at,” he added.

He continued: “The education that we can invest in the next generation, we can prevent this. If you look at all the heroes and stars that we lost.”

DMX died on Friday, April 9, 2021, after spending a week in the hospital on life support. The entire hip hop community has been reacting to his untimely death with tributes from all over the world pouring in.

Kid Cudi Confirms His Off-White Dress On SNL Is A Tribute To Kurt Cobain

Kid Cudi speak out after donning an Off-White dress on SNL.

It’s been a bumper year for Kid Cudi as the rapper has achieved quite a lot so far. Last night, April 10, he took to the stage of SNL and raised eyebrows not for his performance but rather for his attire. He performed two tracks from his latest project, Man On The Moon III. The two songs were “Tequila Shot” and “Sad People.”

It was the performance of the latter mentioned song that got social media buzzing as he belted out the track decked off in an Off-White floral dress with spaghetti straps along with a flashy chain. However, after the shock of his attire wore off, many fans soon realized that he was actually paying homage to the late Kurt Cobain. April 5 of this year, was the 27th anniversary of the death of the lead singer of Nirvana. He was known for performing in similar clothing, including cardigans and floral dresses. The most famous documented case of Cobain wearing a dress was for the cover of The Face magazine in 1993.

Kid Cudi also paid homage to the SNL comedian, Chris Farley. It’s not surprising that the rapper chose to make such a bold statement since he is also looking to jump into the fashion industry soon and is known for his provocative attitude. He recently announced that he would be debuting a new clothing line this summer in a collaboration with the brand BAPE.

He ended last year by dropping an album and has already announced that he expects to deliver another one next year. He added that the Ohio native recently announced that he had a Netflix series in the works.

In address the response from fans, Kid Cudi tweeted, “Virgil designed the dress for me. I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt w a floral print sundress and this man made a masterpiece. Thank You @virgilabloh ur a fuckin genius!! Love you man we did it.”

He added that he is doing a collection with Off-White and the dress will be included.

Kodak Black Shares He Misses NBA YoungBoy & Wants Them To Do A Collab

Despite having once been close friends, Kodak Black and NBA Youngboy have been steadily dissing each other online since 2020. It’s not clear what caused their bond to fall apart, but Kodak seems to be taking the high road in multiple instances lately, including when it comes to his beef with NBA.

Kodak Black was released from prison earlier this year following a pardon from former President Trump, and it appears that his experience with incarceration helped him to see some situations in a new light. Following Youngboy Never Broke Again’s arrest last month, Black responded to followers online asking if he was happy to hear the news.

“Nah, I ain’t happy YB went to jail,” he replied during an Instagram Live session. “F*ck I’m happy he went to jail for? That was my lil bruh at one point. The f*ck I’m happy for? We street n***as, that could be anybody.”

Not only does Kodak clearly not wish jail on anybody following his own time spent behind bars, but he also seems ready to consider NBA a friend again. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Kodak took his sentiments a step further in a more recent IG Live video during which he admits that he misses his old friend.

“Free that boy!” Kodak says while cozily wrapped up in a blanket. “I miss that boy, I can’t even lie about that one. I can’t even lie about that one, ya heard?”

Many fans hope that this change of heart means a collaboration between the two rappers might be in the cards in the near future, but for now, NBA remains in jail. He was arrested by federal authorities in Los Angeles due to an outstanding warrant and may have increased his sentence by feeling from officers when they attempted to pull him over. Only time will tell when these two friends can be reunited to finally reconcile their beef in person.

Yung Bleu Reveals He Might Be The Artist With The Last DMX Feature

Yung Bleu came under fire from fans accusing him of clout-chasing after reports surfaced of DMX passing away.

Legendary rapper DMX has sadly passed after being on life support for the last week in which time he never regained any brain function. Unfortunately, before his actual demise, a hoax about his death got started on Thursday (April 8) when comedian Luenell claimed the rapper had been taken off life support when she posted a premature RI.P message online. DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind confirmed that the rapper was still alive at the time but not before R.I.P messages came pouring in on social media and even started trending on Twitter.

While the misinformation was circulating online, rapper Yung Bleu took the opportunity to announce that he might have the last DMX feature in the vault. Taking to Instagram to share a screenshot of a previous conversation with X where he invited the rapper to be a part of his upcoming album, Bleu wrote a caption that rubbed many fans the wrong way.

“HOPE ITS NOT TRUE ! I Hope I don’t GOT one of THE LAST DMX FEATUREs,” the “You’re Still Mine” rapper wrote in a since-deleted post. “I was gonna suprise [sic] the world with it on my album f**k. I don’t no if the news true but I’m praying for you Og. F*ck the music! I’m praying for you as the person as the father as the legend!” The post was reshared by DJ Akademiks inviting fans to weigh in on its crass timing and content.

“Weird way to try and get hype for your single,” one of the top comments read. “Bro worried bout the wrong thing,” another fan wrote. Others bashed Yung Bleu for clout-chasing in a distastefully unwelcomed way and said the collaboration was better left as a surprise. “This basically just ‘damn that’s crazy he died but at least I got a feature from him on my next album,’” one fan wrote, uncovering the nuance behind the insensitive post.

Yung Bleu deleted his post after Dark Man X’s manager confirmed in a video message that the rapper was still on life support on Thursday (April 8). Sadly, it was confirmed that DMX passed away on Friday (April 9), according to a statement from his family.

Do you think Yung Bleu was clout-chasing and lost some respect for using news of DMX’s death to do so?

Cam’ron Calls Out Derrick Jaxn Over DMX Tribute, Jaxn Responded

Cam’ron went in on Derrick Jaxn for posting a photo of DMX.

The beef between New York rapper Cam’ron and YouTuber Derrick Jaxn over a DMX tribute is continuing, as Cam’ron has clapped back at Jaxn. The Dipset rapper, who started the banter on Sunday, April 11, responded to Jaxn, saying the love guru should have never tried to “talk crazy” when he and his ex-girlfriend split.

Cam’ron and his ex-girlfriend, Juju, split from a 10-year relationship in 2017, and the “Hey Ma” rapper said Jaxn left some negative comments on his Instagram posts in the past.

This has fans speculating that Cam’ron’s issue with Jaxn may not be limited to just the DMX tribute. On Saturday, April 10, Jaxn posted a picture of DMX, whose death was announced the day before. Like most celebrities, Jaxn paid tribute with the post captioned: “Rest In Peace legend.”

Not long after, Killer Cam responded to the post saying: “This ni**a been low since he got caught cheating. Now he wanna resurface with this post. I know/knew DMX personally. He don’t f**k wit ya kind homie. Don’t try and use the sympathy card ni**a. FOH go figure out how to lie, trick more woman and sh*t on ni**a on ya own ni**a.”

The “Down and Out” rapper accused Jaxn of using DMX’s death for clout chasing.

The relationship influencer recently made headlines when he confessed to cheating on his wife, Da’Naia Jackson, which sent shock waves through the community of women and men who supported him.

Some hours later, Derrick Jaxn, undeterred, responded to the post saying, “Big homie, you acting like I cheated on you. This ain’t the type of event to use to voice your hurt feelings about me. Respect this brother’s legacy and his family more than you’re doing right now.”

It didn’t take long for Cam’ron to respond to Jaxn, saying, “You shoulda never never tried to talk crazy when me and my ex broke up. Our time was just up I ain’t get caught cheating, lying etc. U da biggest clout chaser I seen ni**a. U only seen this cause @theshaderoom posted it.”

Fans have been speculating that the DMX tribute might not be the reason for Cam’ron’s bitterness towards Jaxn but that this beef goes way back.

Jaxn has not yet responded to the rapper’s latest comment.

Jessica White Reacts To Nick Cannon Expecting Twins With Abby DeLaRosa

Jessica White reacts to Nick Cannon expecting twins with new girlfriend after fans dragged her into it.

Nick Cannon is going to be a father again, this time to twins, as one of his girlfriends shared that she is expecting twin boys. In a post made on her social media account, Abby DeLaRosa wrote a note to her unborn sons as she expressed gratitude at expecting the babies.

“Our dearest sons- my miracle babies, thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy. I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels,” she began. “I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy. That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose. Your Dad & I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you – is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both,” she added.

A post shared by Abby De La Rosa (@hiabbydelarosa)

Social media went into overdrive as commenters tried to decipher the life of Cannon, who is already a father to five children with three other women.

De La Rosa confirmed in her Instagram stories that she and Nick Cannon reconnected in 2020. “In 2020 the man who is now my children’s father and I reconnected. Never would I ever envision where we are at now,” she started.

“This isn’t a bs “love” story, it’s a REAL story. His openness and honesty won my heart but above anything he is my dearest friend and my partner [in] this world of mine. He changed my life in all the most unconventional ways inspiring me to open my mind to the unknown when it came to loving outside of “labels” and “ownership”. In June [2020] at 2 months, I had lost our first pregnancy and he was so sweet through it all reassuring me that what we’ve manifested will come to fruition…now fast forward to the morning of my birthday- October 25th I find out that I’m pregnant!!!! Then a month later, I found out it was with twins.”

There were also questions as to the life of Cannon as fans struggled to connect the dots among the women Cannon is supposedly involved with. Up to last month, Cannon’s baby mother Britney Bell, girlfriend Lanisha Cole, and De La Rosa, all seemed to hint that they are in some kind of love quad with the Wildin’ Out star.

On March 9, Cole had posted throwbacks from a photoshoot she had done for Cannon recently — which resulted in her first-ever magazine cover. In January, news of their relationship surfaced as Cole displayed her new “King Cannon” tattoo.

On that day, Bell also posted a video of Cannon with their son Golden and a photo of their infant daughter — Powerful Queen — who was born in December 2020.

Abby also, around the same time, posted a photo with a Cartier band on her ring finger. Cole is also seen wearing a similar Cartier ring also on her ring finger. Previous reports also showed that Cannon spared no expense as he set up three elaborate Valentine’s Day tokens for each women to show his appreciation.

Meanwhile, Cannon’s former girlfriend Jessica White reacted on her Instagram story to De La Rosa’s pregnancy as she wished them both well.

“I really hate being tagged in things that has nothing to do with me. I’m a very strong and happy woman who isn’t broken. Leave me out of this,” she said to fans who dragged her into the latest pregnancy announcement.

“the photos are stunning btw and I’m happy for Nick and Abby. May God continue to bless him and his family,” she said.

White and Cannon who were said to be dating from 2015, confirmed that the two split in August 2020. Speaking to Fox Soul’s Hollywood Unlocked Jason Lee in January 2021, however, Bell said she was caught by surprise the announcement that Britney Bell was pregnant for a second time. She found out the news on Instagram even as she was dealing with a miscarriage of Cannon’s baby.

The child was allegedly conceived while White and Cannon, 40, were on a break.

“She was aware that I just had a miscarriage two weeks prior to her news coming out because he told me that he told her,” she claimed on Friday, January 8. “I was living at his house, and she knew that as well.”

Nick has two other children- 9-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey.
