[Intro]
Oh, oh, ooh
Oh, oh, ooh

[Chorus: Booka600]
Von died, we kept that game face, he hate when niggas cry (Gang, gang, gang)
In this world, you either real or fake, I hate when niggas lie
Everybody gotta meet their fate, I hate when it’s the guys
I’m just prayin’ Cdai beat his case, with murder on my mind (That’s a fact)
If you cross us once up in the shit, you separate the ties
I don’t need no fuckin’ benefits, I’m fortune in they eyes (You hear me?)
You can’t walk up in my shit, unfortunately, it’s a nine (You can’t, nigga)
If we ride around whеre I live, I’ll show you how Stevе died

[Verse: Tee Grizzley]
If we riding ’round my hood, I’ll show you a trap where you can make fifty a day (Fifty a day)
Can’t talk ’bout our business around these niggas, bro, niggas gon’ give us away (Keep it low, bro)
If I ain’t showed no love, I’d be up another M, I gave a million away (A million, nigga)
If I want you out and give him a K, no talkin’, young dog sealin’ your fate (Brr, brr)
Came from nothin’, we way up there now, nigga, you hear me? We legends in this
Bro up a million, really can shit on you niggas, just ain’t on the ‘net with this shit
Ignorin’ his calls and givin’ me neck, I’m like, “Damn, that nigga gon’ snap on this bitch” (She foolish)
You and your guys ’bout to step in the club (What?), me and my guys ’bout to step on some bricks (Let’s get it)
I was a shorty (Shorty)
Shittin’ on niggas that’s forty (Forty)
They gon’ take what? I ain’t worried (From who?)
We up four niggas and forties (Bah)
Hellcats, Trackhawks, on Forgis (Skrrt)
Bad hoes come ’round, have orgies (Let’s get it)
I ain’t get shit for bein’ loyal (I didn’t)
Real niggas don’t get rewarded

[Chorus: Booka600]
Von died, we kept that game face, he hate when niggas cry
In this world, you either real or fake, I hate when niggas lie
Everybody gotta meet their fate, I hate when it’s the guys
I’m just prayin’ Cdai beat his case, with murder on my mind
If you cross us once up in the shit, you separate the ties
I don’t need no fuckin’ benefits, I’m fortune in they eyes
You can’t walk up in my shit, unfortunately, it’s a nine
If we ride around where I live, I’ll show you how Steve died

I’ma need those eyes focusin’ on me
Middle of the night, I’m the only star you see
I’ma need those hands runnin’ over me

Slept on the floor at my auntie crib
Under the pillow, that’s where my little Wesson was at

Start twitchin’, that bitch got him pedalin’ back
Say he gon’ do some, what?

Bro got the low on the party, we go end it early
Come through and start shootin’ it up
Fonem keep eatin’ them X pills like candy
He just keep chewin’ them up
I signed a deal but still ride on the block
Everyday, I ain’t been to the stu’ in a month
Nah, we ain’t Crips, but we lurkin’ for blood

And this is the life for me, ’cause, baby, I’m a thug
Thugged out, I’m thugged out, I’m thugged out
Lil’ baby, I’m a thug, I’m thugged out, no drugs now
I’m thugged out, lil’ baby, I’m a thug

[Verse 1: YNW Melly]
Come in the booth and bring me some liquor
Turned up on the trap with a young nigga, yeah, yeah
Your nigga young, nigga, what? Hold up, beg your pardon?
Bitch, I’ve been thuggin’ ever, ever since Gifford Gardens
I’ve been the hardest, I’ma go that way regardless
Young nigga world the right way and all my niggas heartless
We aim that pistol at whoever say, “It’s ending”
We some real niggas, we got fans, but we ain’t friendly
Give me them Benjamins, give me them racks
Give me the Benjamins, give me them racks
Fucked that lil’ bitch inside her white Giuseppe, uh, uh, them match
Her fleece in her shoes, I just got some all-pink Timberlands for you, ah

I got a few niggas who hidin’ in PC
‘Cause they already knowin’ it’s up when they see me
Speakin’ sign language to my brother
Told him to make me another cutter, my mind in the gutter
I ain’t no slime, but I fuck with YNW
Thugged out the greater, caught eleven hundred cases
I can’t guarantee you safety, ’cause shit could go down, baby
Yeah, I’m a thug, shootout by the club
Niggas be knowin’ what’s up, I write this sniper shit in blood
Talkin’ ’bout met a [? 2:14], sayin’ I’m gettin’ niggas styled in prison
Keepin’ it real with niggas behind the fences
Don’t know ’bout you, this how I’m livin’, no
I be tryin’ to blitz even on the visit floor
Yeah, they call me Kodak, this ain’t no image, though
My thug just ride the wave, he had them people scared to be ’round us
This the only life for me, so I don’t care what the hell you think ’bout it
‘Cause, baby, I’m a thug

[Intro: 2Pac & (Dru Down)]
Ah, yeah! Hahaha (Yeah!)
It’s all about you, one time!
(I’ma say it’s all about you, baby, yeah!)
Haha, for the bitches that think it’s all about you
It’s all about you! (This Dru Down in the house
With my boy ‘Pizznac, you know what I’m sayin’?)
It’s all about you
(Yeah, I’m gon’ say it’s all about you
But you know I’m lyin’ though, hah! Yeah)

[Verse 1: 2Pac]
You probably crooked as the last trick
Want to laugh about how I got my ass caught up
With this bad bitch?
Thinkin’ I had her, but she had me in the long run
It’s just my luck, I’m stuck with fuckin’ with the wrong one
Wise decisions, based on lies we livin’
Scandalous times, this game’s like my religion
You could be rollin’ with a thug
Instead you with this weak scrub, lookin’ for some love
In every club, I see you starin’ like you want it
Well, baby, if you got it, better flaunt it
Let the liquor help you get up on it
I’m still tipsy from last night
Bumpin’ these walls as I pause, addicted to the fast life
I try to holla, but you tell me you taken
Sayin’ you ain’t impressed with the money I’m makin’
Guess it’s true what they tellin’ me
Fresh out of jail, life’s hell for a black celebrity
So that’s the reason why I call, and maybe you with it
Fantasies of us sweatin’, can I hit it?
Addicted to the things you do
But still true what I’m sayin’, boo, ‘cause this is all about you

[Hook: Nate Dogg & 2Pac]
Every other city we go, every other video
It’s all about you
No matter where I go, I see the same ho’
Yeah, nigga
Every other city we go, every other video
It’s all about you
No matter where I go, I see the same ho’

[Verse 2: 2Pac]
I make a promise if you go with me, just let me know
I’ll have you hollerin’ my name out before I leave
Nobody loves me, I’m a thug nigga
I only hung out with the criminals and drug dealers
I love niggas, ‘cause we comin’ from the same place
Witness me holla at a hoochie, see how quick the game takes
How can I tell her I’m a playa? And I don’t even care
Creep low, weed smoke’s in the air
Everywhere I go, it’s all about the groupie hoes
Waitin’ for niggas at the end of every show
I just seen you in my friend’s video
I never put a bitch before my friends, so here we go
Follow the leader and peep the drama that I’m goin’ through
It’s all about you, yeah, nigga, it’s all about you

[Hook: Nate Dogg & 2Pac]
Every other city we go, every other video
It’s all about you
No matter where I go, I see the same ho’
Every other city we go, every other video
It’s all about you
No matter where I go, I see the same ho’

[Verse 3: 2Pac]
I see you struttin’ in your miniskirt
A crooked smile with a heart that did plenty dirt
Will it work with your ass as you pass me by?
Sayin’ “hey,” I’ve been looking at you smile all day, let’s parlay
Drinkin’ liquor, kissin’ to help you know me quicker
While I keep workin’ on your zipper, my tongue kissin’
In your position I’m fortified to do the mission
Move your hips and groove to this
Too many cooks in the kitchen, nobody take the time to listen
They probably think we still dissin’
Wit’ your permission, I can make you scream my name
I’m a real man, guide you through the sleazy game
Follow me, let me take you to the ecstasy
You’ll have the time of your life when you next to me you’ll see
Ain’t no way they can stop me
When I know a true thug woman got me

[Hook: Nate Dogg & 2Pac]
Every other city we go, every other video
It’s all about you
No matter where I go, I see the same..

I pray these niggas understand how passionate the tale is
To get you under my pressure

I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’
To get you under my pressure
Yes, uh
Biggest, you feel me? (M-M-M-Maybach Music)

Godfather with a garden full of snakes
Call Porsche, time to give away a Wraith
Bricks boy, tryna turn ’em into bass
Big boy, I been tryin’ by the Braves
Court room soundin’ like I’m in the opera
Went and got it, now these niggas wanna knock us
Bitches fallin’ ’cause they need a couple dollars
But it ain’t a problem ’cause a nigga really got it
Fat boy, rich nigga, with a appetite
Count monеy all night under the candlelight
Spinnin’ vinyl, Tеddy P, or is it Lionel?
Not a model, but I know I been your idol
Big bank, sparkin’ weed without a lighter
On fire ’cause I’m just a different writer
Practicin’ social distance with all these snitch niggas
Guess he jealous ’cause I had his favorite bitch with us
Big bucks, steppin’ outta big trucks
Steppin’ on my feet, it’ll get you fucked up
Got the squad with me and all they did was gimme love
Foot Locker, twenty deep, a nigga spend a dub
G-Wagen for my bitch, that girl go live it up
Death row, that’s for these niggas, I’ma hit ’em up
Makaveli, it’s All Eyez on Me
Pinkie rings, it’s still M-O-B (M-M-M-Maybach Music)

Yeah, heart just turned purple
Three-sixty up front, it all comes full circle
Class photographs, Sandy had me on my Urkel
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Patty Mahomes ’bout to fall short a couple hunnid
Signed, sealed, delivered, I fucked the notary public
She witnessed me sign off on some undeniable numbers
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Yeah, make a set sailin’ Croatia to get a leverage
Groundskeepers cuttin’ the grass and clippin’ the hedges
I took two mill’ out the cage down in the desert
Matthew Maddox called in the pit boss, double checkin’
“The number’s all good, just pay me, I’m at the Rondo”
Real life, the whole fam’ goons like Ralo
One truck in front of me, one behind me to follow
Lemme get a lemon pepper order, please
You gotta have the link before you order these
Dockin’ jet skis in the Florida Keys
We all grateful for Weezy, but no one more than me
You just found a bottle with the messages
These days, fame is disconnected from excellence
Half the time, I gotta ask niggas what they profession is
Ushered a generation in, these is where my confessions live
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
I did brunch with the judge we appearin’ before
Private villas only, I don’t go near a resort
We want everything galore, not just Lira Galore
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
For real, and my city love me like DeMar DeRozan
I sent her the child support, she sent me the heart emoji
They all say they love me, but they hardly know me
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Yeah, dropped him off at school, big day for my lil’ man
Recess hits, daddy prolly made another M
School bell rings and I’m out there to get him again
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Yeah, teacher-parent meetings, wives get googly-eyed
Regardless of what they husbands do to provide
Askin’ if I know Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Of course, pull up to the front in the fleet of Suburbans
Flooded French Immersion with the Secret Service
Shit is so obvious, it defeats the purpose
If this is your hobby, then come and meet your maker
Champagne, ring bells in the streets of Jamaica
Started at the crib, look how far this shit’ll take ya
Ross sittin’ on two hunnid thirty-five acres
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
And that’s facts, Hamdan Mohammed like my third cousin (Facts)
Mansoor Mohammed like my real brother (Facts)
Dubai embrace me like a Emirati (Facts)
All my Rolls-Royces got a different body (Facts)
Mansory, kitted out with every option (Facts)
Lemme know if that’s a problem (I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
If you got a problem with me, gotta walk around it
Used to say I had ‘fore I got it, now I got it all
And bein’ honest, I don’t really wanna talk about it
And if I didn’t have it, wouldn’t wanna sulk about it
I had it so long, I don’t even celebrate it
Negative thoughts don’t even enter my inner matrix
‘Magine me still rappin’ ’bout if I never made it
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Damn, not too many parallels left in our lives
I mean, my crib look bigger through my son’s eyes
And the squad look bigger to the young guys
And my dick feel better when you drunk, right?
Spend nighttime starin’ at the sunrise
And my diamonds all hittin’ like tie-dye
Air Canada Centre nigga when I die
Y’all gon’ have to fly in and do your fake cry
First couple rows, you gon’ see the real guys
The ones that purchase they vehicles ’cause their trunk size
The ones that look at other rappers like it’s lunch time
Watch on my wrist never showed me crunch time
‘Cause I ain’t never let it come to that one time
To be real, man, I never did one crime
But none of my brothers could caption that line
At all, kill me, that’s talent God wasted
Instant noodles, sriracha, I still taste it
When mama was too tired to cook and we had the basics
Instant noodles, sriracha, I still taste it
Now it’s a movie, I’m back at Bellag’, wasted
Niggas love tryna put my back where the walls facin’
Big body frames, wasn’t into car racin’
Me and Chubbs drive by, shorty heart racin’
I always end up droppin’ the top when it starts rainin’
Livin’ in the 6, eight weeks, sun blazin’
After that, the killers just go into hibernation
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Damn, rest in peace Dolla Bill
How I get a girl and girls still wanna holla still?
How I’m so famous, gotta live where they hide the hills?
(I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’)
Everybody that survive got survivor’s guilt
My label gotta prove they love me, gotta wire mills
My boy kitchen’s done, lookin’ like a flour mill
You niggas’ faces lookin’ like you drink sour milk
And your albums like some mothafuckin’ fire drills
It’s like this shit feels real, but it’s never real (Yeah)

[Outro]
I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’
To get you under my pressure
I been tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’
To get you under my pressure

Drake – Wants and Needs Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro: Drake]
(Six)
Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

[Verse 1: Drake]
Leave me out the comments, leave me out the nonsense
Speakin’ out of context, people need some content
Niggas tryna keep up, shit is not a contest
Whippin’ Benz concept
Heaven-sent, God-sent
Least that’s what my mom says
Proof is in the progress, money’s not a object
Busy than a motherfucker, you know how my job get
Barkin’ up the wrong tree, you know how the dogs get
Haven’t fallen off yet, yee
Come with a classic, they come around years later and say it’s a sleeper
The earrings are real, the petty is real, might charge my ex for a feature
Deposit the money to Brenda, Laticia, or lend to Felicia
She came for me twice, I didn’t even nut for her once, you know I’m a pleaser
Forty-two millimeter, was made in Geneva
Yeah, I probably should go to Yeshiva, we went to Ibiza
Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy, I need me some Jesus
But soon as I started confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us

[Chorus: Drake]
Sins, I got sins on my mind
And some M’s, got a lot of M’s on my mind
And my friends, yeah, I keep my friends on my mind
I’m in love, I’m in love with two girls at one time
And they tens, that’s why I got ten on my mind
I got M’s, got a lot of M’s on my mind
And my friends, yeah, I keep my friends on my mind
Should repent, I need me some Jesus in my life
Amen

[Verse 2: Lil Baby]
I’m from the four, but I love me a threesome
Dior my deleter, she my lil’ secret
He tryna diss me to blow up, I peep it
I can’t respond, we just go at your people
If I left some racks on the bed, you can keep it
This shit gettin’ deeper and deeper, I dig it
My shovel wasn’t bent, I was broke, had to fix it
A shark in the water, you swim with the lil’ fishes
I hit today, by tomorrow, she miss it
I grab her neck, she look up, then I kiss it
I’m not a GOAT, but I fit the description
I like to pour, so I get the prescription
We walk around with them bands in our britches
This gun ain’t gon’ jam, when I blow, I ain’t missin’
I’m droppin’ hit after hit, I’m just chillin’
But I’ll send a hit while I chill with my children
Bigger the business, the bigger the office
I fucked ’round and found me a swag, then I caught up
They call for my artists, they makin’ me offers
I don’t even bargain, I’ll start from the bottom
I lost a Ferrari, Las Vegas, Nevada
I woke up the followin’ day and went harder
I’m crackin’ my shell now, they see that I’m smarter
I gotta get money, I love to get charter
I gave her four Birkins and one’s for her daughter
I can’t let ’em down, walk around with my guard up
I’m screamin’ out “YOLO,” yeah, that’s still the motto
I know I be on some shit that they ain’t thought of

[Chorus: Drake]
Sins, I got sins on my mind
And some M’s, got a lot of M’s on my mind
And my friends, yeah, I keep my friends on my mind
I’m in love, I’m in love with two girls at one time
And they tens, that’s why I got ten on my mind
I got M’s, got a lot of M’s on my mind
And my friends, yeah, I keep my friends on my mind
Should repent, I need me some Jesus in my life
Amen

YBN Almighty Jay & Cordae Blames Breakup On Attorney Finessing YBM Trademark

YBN Almighty Jay has dropped a bombshell as to why the promising YBN group broke up, and he has made a number of serious allegations against their former manager, who he says is responsible for the group splitting. Cord

On Wednesday, YBN Almighty Jay accused ex-manager James McMillan of shady dealings and doing things behind the group’s back. “This n****a James McMillan is a fraud. He sign n***as to janky deals and f*** em over. Nobody know nothing about the shit we go through on a daily basis being signed to this n**a ‘cause we cover for this n****as ass. I’m done with this sh*t,” he said in an Instagram post.

The post was liked by YBN co- members YBN Cordae and YBN Nahmir. Jay also posted on his Instagram stories where he accused McMillan of “trademarking the YBN name behind n****as backs.”

He also says McMillan interfered with his free will to sign contracts when he “assigned me a lawyer he used to be engaged to without telling me. SMH. Took advantage of some kids bro,” he said.

Another story concluded that “if y’all really wanna know why YBN broke up.”

The manager has not commented on the accusations since Jay made the claims. According to news information, McMillan, who was previously charged with a felony drug offense, is also an Attorney-at-Law who has a reputation for being an entertainment and sports attorney in New York.

It also appears that he stayed on as the manager of YBN Cordae, who went on to secure a number of Grammy Nominations as a solo artist. Cardae, who has since dropped the YBN from his name, also seem to co-sign what Almighty Jay said.

Reggae Songstress Etana Hourglass Shape Turn Heads On The Gram

Grammy-nominated reggae singer Etana has switched things up, leaving fans and spectators gasping at her brand new look. For a while now, Etana has been sporting her natural hair without locks and has deviated from the usual Rastafarian style dressing to a more urban alternative look.

Just a few days ago, she posted a photograph of herself to her Instagram account wearing a magnificent Batik printed dressed and her makeup beautifully done. The look left many baffled and simply speechless as they feasted on the bold look the ‘Strong One’ was serving. Aside from being politically correct to her Rastafarian lyrics the photo was seemingly inspired by the approaching Women’s Day as a way in which to inspire and empower the fairer gender.

Etana posted the photo with the caption, “Style & Grace! It’s Women’s History Month…Shout out to all go getters, hard-working women out there who continue to push the boundaries by achieving what so many thought couldn’t be achieved by a female.”

She also dished out big ups to the team of ladies who made her awe-inspiring look possible. The team comprises her makeup artist Nyvra Dorelus, hairstylist Amanda Rickets, stylist Sashon Burton, with a dress from Melissa Dunkley of Mdiz.

In an interview with The Star Etana said, “I really wanted these images to come out just right,” as she expresses her gratitude to her fans for accepting the new look not allowing the social norms to dictate how she should behave and look. She also stated, “As an artiste, I depict life. My fans are from all walks of life and languages. I just step out and be me”.

Her recent efforts to embrace her creativity and represent her fans have taken her down the path of a new aesthetic and style.

Etana is still making music, gearing up to release her album Proppa, collaborating with Ghanaian Afropop sensation Stonebwoy.

Kodak Black Unhappy With YNW Melly Collab, Melly Respond From Prison

Kodak Black isn’t happy with his new collaboration with fellow Florida native YNW Melly.

Today is new music Friday, and fans are anxiously awaiting the release of tracks from some of their favorite artists. This Friday might just be a lot bigger than previous ones in terms of the list of heavyweights set to burn up the airwaves. We have Drake and Tory Lanez dropping albums, and we also will be receiving music from Tyler the Creator and Lil Baby. Typically, the critics of music are the fans themselves, but today there was a twist when Kodak Black shared his displeasure about his new track titled “Thugged Out” with YNW Melly.

Word of their collab has been hitting the grapevine for some time now, but sadly fans hadn’t gotten their desires satiated due to both rappers dealing with a slew of legal dilemmas. YNW Melly is currently in custody at Broward County Jail in Florida, awaiting his double-murder trial. He was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. According to police reports, he and another rapper, YNW Bortlen, killed two of their friends then staged the crime scene to look like a drive-by shooting. Back in April 2020, the 21-year-old rapper was denied release from prison after he contracted Covid-19.

Kodak Black, on the other hand, had a little bit of luck. His sentence has been commuted, and he was released from jail recently following a pardon by former President Donald Trump. Miraculously it seems the pair have found some way to make the magic happen, and their new track was released today, much to the displeasure of Kodak, who noted that the mixing of the track was of poor quality.

In a now-deleted tweet, he expressed, “Dam They Got Me Off Beat Af On This Melly Song SMH We Gone Have To Revisit This One Later.”

YNW Melly responded to Kodak’s revelations stating, “We getting dat bih rite it’s melvin n yak stop playing with our top [engineer].”

One fan seemed unphased by the matter at hand and instead directed his focus to Melly responding while in prison. “He got a phone in prison? I’m telling,” he exclaimed.

Check out their new track, “Thugged Out”.

Drake , Saweetie, Bruno Mars, Tyler, The Creator Dominates New Music Friday

Since we kicked off 2021, this might be the biggest’ New Music Friday’ of the year thus far, and it’s not just because Drake announced a new project. The Toronto rapper’s highly anticipated sixth album is still at the forefront of people’s minds, but while he perfects that with the right finishes, he is offering up a trio of songs for fans to mull over in the meantime. Drake announced that his mini-EP Scary Hours would arrive at midnight on Friday, which means chances are you’ve already heard it. The title includes three tracks – two of which features Lil Baby and Rick Ross.

The star-studded list of new arrivals goes on to include the likes of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, who joined forces on an upcoming album that they say will have that 70s sound. Ahead of the drop, the duo, who together are known as Silk Sonic, released their lead single entitled “Leave The Door Open.”

This week we’re also gifted with new tracks from the likes of Tyler The Creator, Juice WRLD and Post Malone, Young Dolph and Key Glock, Saweetie, Doja Cat and Stefflon Don, G Herbo, and more.

Drake – “Scary Hours”

Drake’s Scary Hours comes after the rapper was spotted shooting a music video in his home base, Toronto. Fans suspected that the visuals would be for a track from Certified Lover Boy, which they have been waiting for almost a year for. However, Drizzy took to Instagram to announce the new short EP ahead of its release at midnight. While Scary Hours will not qualify for a spot on the Billboard 200 chart, it is expected to perform just as well as it would if it did make that debut.

Silk Sonic – “Leave The Door Open”

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak announced a new joint album, and it is already looking like the collaboration we never knew we needed. Today they dropped off the lead single for the project “Leave The Door Open,” which is indicative of an absolutely outstanding album afoot. Just as their name Silk Sonic implies, the singer and rapper combine to give fans a silky smooth array of bars and melodies.

Clever ft Juice Wrld & Post Malone – “Life’s A Mess”

Juice WRLD and Post Malone together on one song is most likely just as you’d imagine it. These souls were meant to be spilled out on the same track at least once, and thanks to rapper Clever and Juice’s everlasting catalog of unreleased recordings, the dream was made a reality with “Life’s A Mess.” After gelling his sound so extraordinarily well with that of the departed rapper, Posty only leaves fans wanting more with this track.

Saweetie ft Doja Cat & Stefflon Don – “Best Friends (Remix)”

Saweetie enlisted UK-based rapper Stefllon Don to assist the remix for “Best Friend,” a single she released with Billboard-topping artist Doja Cat in January. The official music video for the original track has already garnered over 82 million views and 1 million likes. The addition of Stefflon Don to the record should only serve to spice it up even more and help it to surge further up the charts. Stefflon has a very West Indian style which could be exactly what a remix like this needs.

Tyler, The Creator – “Tell Me How”

Tyler The Creator has been on a collaboration binge lately, but this week he released a solo effort titled “Tell Me How.” As usual, the Grammy Award-winning rapper is always improving, and so he did not come to disappoint. The excitement of his first solo joint in a minute and his thought-provoking lyrics only set the stage for a simply brilliant album to come.

Young Dolph & Key Glock – “Aspen”

Young Dolph and Key Glock also dropped off their new single “Aspen” today. These two seem to make a good team as together they’ve already released successful singles “Case Closed” and “Green Light” this year. Their latest effort is of a similar nature to their previous as they discuss their street-savvy ways on the track.

Taleban Dooda ft 42 Dugg – “Trappin Ain’t Dead”

Taleban Dooda features 42 Dugg on his latest track, “Trappin Ain’t Dead.” On this newly released Helluva-produced track, Dooda dabbles in a new style that he carries quite well, much to the delight of fans. 42 Dugg brings his signature Detroit sound to the track complementing Dooda’s sound in an effortless way.

G Herbo – “Break Yoself & Really Like That”

G Herbo released not one but two new singles this week, “Break Yoself” and “Really Like That.” These mark the first singles released by the Chi-Town rapper this year following his track “Statement,” which was released in December amid charges being brought against him for $1.5 million of federal fraud. The rapper reportedly used stolen credit cards to cover private jets and other expenses.

Chance The Rapper also released a new music video for his song “The Heart & The Tongue” at midnight, and be on the lookout for new releases from Sonny Digital, who drops off his song “Dance” today and pgLang’s Baby Keem who debuts his track “No Sense.”

Drake Lyrics Mentioning Kanye West On ‘Scary Hours 2’ EP Explain

Drake has fans pining for his and Kanye West reconciliation after he mentions the controversial rapper on his latest release.

Drake SZN is upon us, and social media is buzzing about the little nuggets the rapper left in his mini EP Scary Hours 2. The three-pack ordeal is a precursor to the rapper’s impending album Certified Lover Boy and consists of a solo track “What’s Next” and two collaborations, with the more popular one being “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” with Rick Ross.

However, it’s the Kanye West reference in the Lil Baby-assisted “Wants and Needs” that has fans buzzing. In the track, Drake makes mention of his rival Kanye West in a positive way that has restored any hope of them reuniting – at least for fans.

Drake seems about ready to end his longtime feud with Ye that reached its pinnacle in 2018 when Pusha T exposed the rapper for being a dad – something that Drizzy believes the current G.O.O.D. Music president could have only learned directly from Kanye West. In his new track, “Wants and Needs,” the Toronto rapper expresses a desire to get closer to God.

Since Kanye has become the resident minister in the hip-hop community, it was only fitting that Drizzy calls on him for the cause. Drake raps:

“Yeah, I probably should go link with Yeezy, I need me some Jesus / But soon as I started confessing my sins, he wouldn’t believe us”

Kanye has been on a born-again journey since he gave his life to the Lord, and his Sunday Service movement has depicted just that. Even last year, when he ran for U.S. President, his campaign was primarily based on his religious ideals. Fans are excited about the possibility of faith rekindling Ye and Drizzy, who has seemed for the longest time to care zero about making amends.

Drake also raps about confessing his sins but thinks that they’re so bad that they’re unbelievable.

Is Drake rapping about Kim Kardashian on “Wants and Needs?”

Of course, there is the old Kim Kardashian factor. Kanye West is of the belief that Drizzy and Kim had an affair, and some fans are now drawing references to Drizzy’s lines about Ye on the track. The 6 God has a reputation for leaving mystery subs on his songs aimed at his nemesis, so there is a good chance Kim might be a factor here. Or perhaps he just wanted to ruffle up some feathers regarding Kanye, who is in the middle of a divorce from Kim.

Over on Twitter, one fan says they were anticipating that Drake, who is currently trending, would have called out Kanye West in some way or form on this new project. “I knew Drake would mention Kanye on his new songs, but I’m glad it was in a positive way this time. Would love them to squash the beef.”

Most of Twitterverse is in agreement that it’s about time Drake and Kanye put their differences behind them. They have certainly taken enough shots at each other over the years. What say you?

Reggae Singer George Nooks Encourages Fellow Artists With Pending Court Cases

Veteran Jamaican reggae singer George Nooks is encouraging all artists facing legal issues before the courts to “ride out the storm.” The entertainer made the comments following his own court case that came up for mention on Thursday, March 4.

George Nooks is currently before the courts after he was charged with possession of cocaine and perverting the course of justice. He was charged in October 2020 following an incident that took place in April 2019. Urban Islandz previously reported that police conducting a narcotics operation approached the “God Is Standing By” crooner while he was on a plaza in the corporate area. On the approach of the police officers, it’s alleged he threw a bag containing a “white powdery” substance to the ground.

He was subsequently taken into custody, and reports further indicate that while he was being processed, he got possession of the bag and consumed the contents. He was subsequently charged by the Director of Public Prosecutions stemming from that incident. When he appeared in court on Thursday, he expressed optimism about his case, telling reporters, “I’m feeling great and looking forward to this being over.” The case was postponed for mention until July 27.

George Nooks has had previous run-ins with the law prior to his latest case. In May 2019, he was found not guilty of breaches of the Dangerous Drug Act stemming from another similar incident.

For this occasion, Nooks expressed, “Me nah watch dem, because all the time, God is good, and God is good all the time, (so) no trial is too difficult.”

Quada, another entertainer who was also due to have his case mentioned on Thursday, had his case put off until another date as well. He is facing charges of arson and murder. On hearing of his fellow entertainer’s plight, George Nooks commented, “a just so dem ting set.”

Meanwhile, as the artist is preparing to release his latest 14 track album later this year, he told reporters that the title had been changed a few times. He further added that when he finds an appropriate one that he seems suitable, he will make an official announcement for the release.

In closing, the entertainer had this motivational message to impart to fellow entertainers in similar compromising positions, “The artiste should ride out the storm … all the entertainers in these situations should not give up hope; all my brothers and sisters, ride out your storms,” he said.

We will keep you updated on any further developments in his case.

Sean Paul & Busy Signal Drops “Boom” Collab Ahead Of ‘Live N Living’ Album

Sean Paul released his new track “Boom” with Busy Signal.

As he rolls out his first album of the year Live N Living, Sean Paul is releasing singles from the project to get the buzz going. His latest release, “Boom,” which features Busy Signal, has fans wondering how the two artists have not collaborated on a dance track like this before. The duo mesh extremely well together with complementing sounds, and on this track, they delivered a high-energy performance that is a surefire way to get fans moving and set the stage for a great new album.

“Gyal come gimme di ting deh don’t play / None a dem cyaan test yuh body no day / And yuh can ask anybody gyal / You got the body everybody want yeah (oh yeah),” Sean Paul kicks off the first verse.

“Mek the booty work twerk fi the income / Cah yuh body heavy like Jada Kingdom / Go ahead baby with your wisdom / Loving the style you bring come,” Busy Signal deejays.

The intrigue also lies in the fact that we haven’t received a track like this from Busy Signal in a while. The dancehall star has only collaborated with Sean Paul once in the past, over a decade ago when they joined Busta Rhymes for the remix “Gun Dem Bark.”

Their latest collaboration is a definite banger which proves Sean Paul’s recent proclamation that it’s “collaboration over confrontation.” As dancehall has become quite divisive, SP stands to defy that with an onslaught of epic collaborations this year.

“Boom” is one of the upcoming tracks on Sean Paul’s new album Live N Living which is slated to arrive on March 12.

In a recent statement about the upcoming project, Sean Paul explained, “It was important to me to show that in our genre of dancehall, we don’t need to clash in order to attain the spotlight,” he said. “We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rotations on the airwaves or streams.”

“Boom” debuted on Busy Signal’s official YouTube page on Thursday (March 4). Check out the fire new track.

Sanchez Worried About Shortage Of Reggae Singers Keeping Genre Alive

Timeless Jamaican singer, Sanchez, has a notion that there is a shortage of reggae singers emerging from Jamaica. He sincerely believes that there will not be enough singers to carry on the legacy of reggae music. Many who oppose his thesis would declare that just like technology, the music has to evolve, or it will die out completely.

Sanchez is popular for his hit songs “Lonely Won’t Leave Me Alone,” “Brown Eye Girl,” and “Never Dis Di Man,” whose lyrics easily roll off the tongue due to his incredible renditions.

With these under his belt, one could point out that his statement has some truth in it, and he would be experienced enough to say so. However, if traditions surrounding music were stringent, we would still be making Ska and Mento music today.

During a recent interview with the Observer, Sanchez took the time to express his thoughts. “Most of the great singers have passed away. It’s only a handful of us left in the business right now. After we are gone who’s going to be here to keep reggae music alive?” he boldly questioned.

He added, “There needs to be another generation of great singers on the rise and I don’t see that happening right now.”

According to the Russian playwright Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, “Nothing in Art is new, except for talent,” and the same goes for music. If you deeply analyze the history of music, you will notice that over time, rhythm, beats, and melodies have been recycled to create the next sound for the new generation. Young upcoming reggae artists like Minori, Jamila Falak, Black H3RO, and Annah Mariah, just to name a few, are on the verge of making the next big hit, and it is without a doubt that they revisited the music of the greats to motivate and inspire them. They can be highlighted as proof of the new generation practicing the craft in the shadows of their forefathers as they explore their talent, and many of Sanchez’s fans were quick to inform him of this.

Sanchez is currently doing the media rounds to promote his new single “Called Me,” produced by Freddie Kruger and released on Kruger Di Reggae Riddim compilation album. The compilation also features songs from several other artists, including Mykal Rose, Wayne Wade, and Hugh Brown.

Do you agree with Sanchez?

Pop Smoke Earns 3 New Songs On “Boogie” Movie Soundtrack – Listen

Pop Smoke has three new songs on the soundtrack for the new movie “Boogie.”

Pop Smoke will make his posthumous debut on the big screen this Friday as basketball player “Monk” in the movie “Boogie.” The New York rapper who snatched a huge role in the film prior to his untimely demise is not only the film’s lead antagonist, but he also appears on the Boogie: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack not one but three times.

The lead single, “AP,” was already released this month and is a solo effort by Pop Smoke. The rapper also makes appearances on the tracks “Fashion” featuring Polo G and a remix for “No Cap” with UK rapper M24. The basketball-themed movie was directed by Eddie Huang, who told Yahoo Entertainment that he was particularly impressed with Pop Smoke’s work ethic on set. As the lead actor’s main rival in the story, Pop Smoke had a huge role to play and is instrumental to the success of the film.

“He [had] no fear, Pop [wasn’t] scared of anything,” said Huang. “He also probably had the fastest computer processor in his head I’ve ever seen. I could tell Pop something, and he would immediately adapt and make that change. And he didn’t have an ego about it, and he wouldn’t get scared about it. And he wouldn’t have self-doubt about it. He just did it.”

Huang added that the movie was originally meant to inspire other Chinese like himself living in America, but now he came to the conclusion that this is Pop Smoke’s film. “It’s absolutely dedicated to Pop,” he continues. “I really miss my brother.”

Pop Smoke found a lot of posthumous success amidst his untimely death more than a year ago in February 2020. Pop released one of the most successful albums of the year despite the setbacks spurred on by the global pandemic, and even today, Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon remains in the coveted No. 1 spot on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for its 17th week – a record time for any album released within the last 3-4 decades.

As the departed rapper’s estate revealed, they’ll continue to roll out his artistic portfolio posthumously, and his role in the Eddie Huang-directed film is the latest of his undertakings to emerge. “Boogie” premieres in theaters today, Friday (March 5).

Renato Carosone – Tre Numeri Al Lotto (i Pappagalli) Lyrics

Strofa:
Questa mattina mi sono svegliato
Di soprassalto come un bebè
Ho fatto uno sogno simpatico e strano
Ora vi spiego perchè…

Ritornello:
Ho giocato tre numeri al lotto,
Venticinque sessanta e trentotto,
Pensa un po’ che successo farà
A canzone se il terno uscirà.
Ho giocato tre numeri al lotto
Venticinque, sessanta e trentotto,
Li ho giocati convinto perché
Li ho sognati tutti e tre.

Ho fatto un sogno
Tanto tanto bello,
Ero in un castello
Sotto un cielo blu.
C’erano tanti,
Tanti pappagalli,
Rossi verdi e gialli,
Che dicevan così.
“Giocali, giocali, giocali,
Giocali, giò…”
Ho giocato tre numeri al lotto
Venticinque sessanta e trentotto,
Li ho giocati convinto perché
Usciranno tutti e tre!

Per finire:
Usciranno tutti e tre!

Nigerian Rapper Cruel Santino & Koffee Working On New Collab

Cruel Santino and Koffee got a collaboration on the way.

There has been much buzz around Jamaica’s youngest Grammy Award-winning artiste Koffee after she stripped down for a sultry Calvin Klein shoot. It turns out that there is much more coming our way from the 21-year-old, this time as it relates to music. The “Rapture” singer and Nigerian rapper Cruel Santino were definitely cooking up in the studio, and by all indications, their impending release will be worth the wait. The brand new track was previewed by Santino during an Instagram LIVE session just a day ago.

The African-based entertainer showcased just why he is thought of as one of the continent’s most inspiring and unique young entertainers, as he blended his Nigerian dialect with that of Jamaica’s patios. Koffee’s unmistakable vocals came through just beyond the end of Santino’s first verse and carried through until the Nigerian stopped the beat dead in its track, leaving his viewers craving more.

This is not the first time that Koffee has been linked with a Nigerian entertainer. Just last year, the singer was seen working it out with African Giant Burner Boy. There hasn’t been any word on that release just yet, but many feel it could be featured on Koffee’s forthcoming album.

There is still no word on the name of Santino’s recently previewed track.

Much like Koffee, Santino emerged on the music scene only a few years ago. His debut album “Mandy & The Jungle” boasted songs such as “Sparky” and “Freaky” that resonated heavily with groups interested in a mixture of indie, alternative, hip hop, and dancehall sound. The Interscope Records talent recently formulated his label known as Monster Boy and is poised to make a big musical impact.

Santino’s talent can also be seen behind the lens, which gives him full creative control over his visuals. It is unclear if his Koffee collab is already being fitted with a music video. However, it would be pretty interesting if that came to pass. Ghanaian entertainer Stonebwoy recently visited Jamaica and expressed just how fun it was to journey to the island to shoot a video for a track he had done with Jahmiel.

The small island territory that has birthed one of the world’s greatest music genres has seen a reconnection of sorts with fellow entertainers from the motherland. Other African stars such as Davido and Wizkid have all tapped into the unique put fruitful relationship. By the sounds of it, Santino has become of the latest to do so, and fans can’t wait to hear the complete song.

Lymie Murray – Leaving Babylon Lyrics

Yea,
Hear these words i tell you
HEY

Signs are clear,
The end is near.
So lay aside
Your burdens and cares.
Cause where we’re going
Can’t take them there.
Won’t make this journey
If you’re not prepared.
Trodding through earth’s wilderness.
Though we’re weary no time to rest.
On our way to the promise land.
Dancing and singing redemption songs.

Chorus We are leaving Babylon
Into the city made without hands
Beyond its wall a river flows
To refresh our weary souls.
We are leaving Babylon yea

Hey Night has pass
The days at hand
When the Sheppard
Will gather his lambs.
Awake, no longer slumber
Join the multitude without number.
Hurry hurry
There’s no time to waste
From the heathens be separate

Avoid negative news and views
Don’t let them discourage you

Chorus
We are leaving Babylon
Into the city made without hands
Beyond its wall a river flows
To refresh our weary souls.
We are leaving Babylon yea

Now we know it won’t be long
Heed the warning
Fleet the wrath to come.
Two roads from which to choose
The choice is yours win or loose
Escape for life face the frowning judge.
Before the days of the burning sun.
Maintain your faith to jah be true.
For only he can deliver you.

Chorus x 2
We are leaving Babylon
Into the city made without hands
Beyond its wall a river flows
To refresh our weary souls.
We are leaving Babylon yea

Leaving yes we’re yes we’re leaving

Timbaland Cosign Tory Lanez Accusing DSPs Of Allegedly Suppressing His Music

Tory Lanez went on a rant against DSPs for allegedly suppressing his music and gets a cosign from Timbaland.

Tory Lanez is criticizing Digital Streaming Services, which he says has been making a concerted effort to not display his latest album, Playboy. Lanez has been caught in controversy since the shooting incident involving Megan Thee Stallion, and he even claimed that his music was being boycotted as his streaming activity dipped since the incident.

Now, the Toronto rapper says his music is being censored and silenced by streaming services. In a video he released on Instagram, Lanez says that Playboy has been streaming No.1 on Apple and Itunes Music, but in spite of this, it isn’t displayed on the homepage of the streaming services.

He said, “I’m not tryna to single out any platforms…..at all..I JUST ASK THAT AT THIS POINT…I get treated FAIRLY…as an independent artist….and as a BLACK BUSINESS.. I ACTIVELY still make platforms money with my music so it should NOT BE RIGHT.. for any platform to CENSOR AND SILENCE ME FROM THE EDITORIAL PLAYLIST OR HOME PAGES OF THESE PLATFORMS THAT HELP TO GIVE EYEBALLS TO YOUNG ARTIST…”

In his video, he said his album is not appearing on the home page of the numerous DPS, and none of the album edits have made any of the trending editorial playlists. Snippets of the album edits have hit social media as the artist trends, and fans rave over the new project.

Tory Lanez also said that his music has been buried during the last two releases as this is not something new with the DSP services. “I’ve stayed cool for the last two projects…BUT THIS IS JUST NOT FAIR,” he asserted.

In the now-deleted post, Tory Lanez thanked fans for their support and for continuing to demand his music but said that fans are not seeing his music and have to search for his name or the album title to see his new music. Some celebrities also commented on his post including legendary producer Timbaland and Lanez’s rumored girlfriend Eliza Reign, who is famous for having a baby with Future and demand $50K a month in child support.

“I want to shout out all my umbrellas all my fans out there for what yall just just did. We No. 1 with the R&B capsule with the R&B charts for Itunes Music, we No. 1 on the charts for Apple Music…what yall did right now what people don’t understand my music right now the platforms got it in a way when you look at the home page of these platforms you can’t even find it nowhere. It’s as if I didn’t drop nothing…so in order for people to actually to have my music chart they gotta go search for it, look for my name and all kinda stuff and it’s crazy because they [fans] brought it to number one….my music is on the top charts which means there’s a demand for my music. If there’s a demand for my music it’s yall job to curate that music to the people who demand it.”

Tory Lanez dropped “Playboy” the same day as Drake dropped his EP ‘Scary Hours 2.” His R&B capsule has 12 songs that fans seem to love.

Beenie Man, Popcaan & Dre Island Unity On Display In “Fun In The Sun” Video

Beenie Man released the lead single off his upcoming album Simma.

After teasing the new collaboration with Popcaan and Dre Island more than a month ago, Beenie Man has finally released the visuals for “Fun In The Sun.” The dancehall veteran first previewed the music video directed by Cinema Gods at the end of January after he announced that his new album Simma will be available this spring.

In the music video, Popcaan, Dre Island, and Beenie Man perform on the grounds of a lofty estate in St. Ann, Jamaica. Beenie’s daughter Desha Ravers also makes a brief cameo where she performs some simple dance movements in the courtyard. “Fun In The Sun” is the call to abandon violence and come together as one, taking a page from the book of a legend like Bob Marley. Dre Island’s signature raspy sound carries the uplifting chorus with ease as he encourages unity.

“Brothers and fathers, daughters and sons / Working all day long till the sun comes down / I say Doc we goin party, everybody have fun / We don’t need no gun just fun in the sun / That’s why we must… must live as one / Divided we fall while together we’re strong,” Dre Island croons in the chorus.

Beenie Man delivers a particularly impressive verse on this the first track from Simma. For his part, the Doctor speaks to how far dancehall could go if it was less divisive and how unison can aid tremendously on a community level as well.

“But if we all work together we can help each other / A nuh dem alone we fi tell ‘black lives matter’ / We nuh racist mi nuh believe inna colour / A di hard work yuh perform mi admire / Every rich ghetto yute find yuh ghetto yuh be a pillar / Yesterday you was a killer but today you is a villa / Help di ghetto yute dem fi climb up the ladder / Dem cuss the politicians still nah get a dollar,” Beenie deejays on the track.

“A Davis, Sutherland and Island deh ya / A nuh circumstance a love between breda / If dem artist ya coulda follow / Everywhere we pull up all a we fans dem gather / Paparazzi take a picture put it up inna d maga / Dem nuh want that a straight pasa pasa.”

The video wraps up with a visual tribute to the dancehall star’s late mother, who passed away in 2020. “In Loving Memory Of My Mother Lilieth Lorrine Sewell 1946-2020,” the screen reads.

Check out the visuals for “Fun In The Sun,” and look out for Beenie Man’s 19th studio album Simma this spring.

Mates Of State – Basement Money Lyrics

Let’s make a cold idea warm in the back of the basement Let’s make a cold idea form in the back of our head I spent a lot of days, lot of days with you By now we got a taste of what a doublemind can do

We wait We don’t give up We wait We don’t give up

Light it up, light it up to burn it down Temporary’s not my style I draw them in and spit them out Do what I’ve always done, always done with you By now we got a taste of what a doublemind can do

We wait We don’t give up We wait We don’t give up

Money, we don’t need it Money’s raining down upon us Oh the playing gets steady Instead of pining for a moment of rest

So we wait We don’t give up We wait We don’t give up

I’ve never waited on a quarterless drought I’ve never waited for the numbers to be randomly drawn But I remember selling out But I had to make a fun living somehow

I make a living for now Make a living for now Make a living somehow

Money, we don’t need it For the money’s raining down The playing gets steady Instead of pining for a moment of rest

The money, we don’t need it The money’s raining down up on us The playing gets steady Instead of pining for a moment of rest

So we wait We don’t give up We wait We don’t give up We wait
