BROCKHAMPTON – PRESSURE / BOW WOW Lyrics

[Part I: PRESSURE]

[Verse 1: Merlyn Wood]
Merlyn, Merlyn, Merlyn, Merlyn, Merlyn
Check, check, check, check
Pressure, pressure
Pull up, skrrt, skrrt
Pick up, dessert
Telepathy, I don’t say words
Best friend got lynched, I was on tour
We the Goodfellas, thirty deep at Coachella
How you know I changed? When the fuck was we familiar?
Diamond cuts say “Merlyn,” yes, that’s pressure
Very hard to sleep on like a skinny lover
Motherfuck what you think, I meant to upset ya

[Chorus: Merlyn Wood]
Pressure, pressure, prеssure, pressure (Apply thе pressure)
Pressure (Pressure), pressure, pressure, pressure
Pressure, pressure (Apply the pressure)

[Verse 2: Dom McLennon]
I believe that I won’t fail (Uh)
Nigga like me done crawled out hell (Woop)
Niggas like me, they all in jail (Uh)
Luckily, I can pay my bail (Uh)
I don’t even check my bills (Uh)
Came a long way from crushing pills (Uh)
It’s some things that I conceal (Uh)
Y’all want clean but I want real, real, real, real, real (Uh, uh, uh)
On your knees to be ideal, deal, deal, deal, deal (Uh, uh, uh, uh)
I need acres with my meals, meals, meals, meals, meals (Uh, uh, uh, uh)
Bitch, just tell me how you feel, feel, feel, feel, feel, feel, feel (Uh, uh, uh, uh, bitch)

[Segue]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Pressure, pressure, yeah

[Part II: BOW WOW]

[Chorus: Kevin Abstract]
Me and my boy dressed like Bow Wow, keep it in my bag (Pressure, pressure)
Me and my boy, we stunt like Birdman, flexing like my dad
Me and my boys, me and my boys, boys, boys, boys
Me and my boys, me and my boys, boys, boys, boys

[Verse: ssgkobe]
(Ooh)
Off them drugs, I get too comfortable
I know they mad I’m up as fuck (Woah, woah, woah)
Woke up and my hair matted as fuck
Got a dinner to go to? Oh damn, that’s tough
In the hills with the gang where the valleys end
Bad bitch pull up, let the baddies in
Codeine and it’s stuck in my abdomen
Yeah, I think I need a badder bitch (Mhm)
Yeah, seen a stallion, she just walked in
Dilly-dallying to my new parked Benz
“Oh damn? What he pull up in the airport in?”
I don’t really think that fact is important
It’s imported, yeah, it’s a damn foreign
Hold on, what secret do Victoria got?
Balling hard like the Magic, now the sorcerers know
But I think it was me and my, me, it was, it was (Boys)

[Chorus: Kevin Abstract]
Me and my boy dressed like Bow Wow, keep it in my bag
Me and my boy, we stunt like Birdman, flexing like my dad
Me and my boys, me and my boys, boys, boys, boys
Me and my boys, me and my boys, boys, boys, boys

[Post-Chorus: Kevin Abstract]
Me and my boys, me and my boys
Me and my boys, me and my boys
That’s me and my shawty
Me and my shawty
Me and my boys, that’s me and my boys
Me and my boys, me and my boys
That’s me and my shawty
Me and my shawty
(​Oh​)

BROCKHAMPTON – OLD NEWS Lyrics

[Intro: Jabari Manwa]
I did this all for you (I did, I did, I did this all for you)

[Chorus: Jabari Manwa]
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, they’re oh so old, be new
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, that’s old news

[Verse 1: Matt Champion]
I wish it didn’t end like this
You stopped lovin me a long time ago, didn’t notice
Caught a new wave, couldn’t contain how I feel about it
Easy to say I’m to blame, go the day about it
How you say you don’t love me like you used to?
Solitude is becomin’ so unusual
Old news, that you rush into everything
It’s why I’m stuck here, tellin’ you, you

[Chorus: Jabari Manwa]
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, they’re oh so old, be new
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, that’s old news

[Verse 2: Merlyn Wood]
Say less, rain check, we friends I guess
I got regrets, hop in, lessons
You don’t hear me, but I bought you earrings (What?)
From the PJ’s, treat you like an heiress
I ain’t trickin’, but I got it for your hair and nails (What?)
I always treat ’em too good, and it always fails
You an angel, I’m the one that tripped and fell (I’m trippin’)
Can’t let it go, I missed my own fairytale (I’m winnin’)

[Verse 3: Baird]
I’m out my head, I’m in my notebook, I’m feelin’ hopeful
I joined the band in Dylan’s tour bus, turn up my vocals
Still makin’ faces at your GoPro, like fuck the promos
I’ll do the live shows for a one-horse town
The blue-black behind my eyelids and unheard sounds
The words cracked in silence, the sun go down
But no regrets, coyote baby, you can watch me howl
We just so different, you and I, guess we both know now
Guess we both know now

[Chorus: Jabari Manwa]
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, they’re oh so old, be new
I did this all for you, what more I gotta prove?
The games you’ve put me through, that’s old new

[Verse 4: Joba]
Wish I knew what it meant when I said I loved you (I love you)
Rips in the threads of the net I fell through (Ah)
What I gotta do for you?
Bet my life paid the price
Almost died, shit was tight (For real)
What a life to lose, beautiful and tragic, it reigns true
Pleasure and pain, both remain (They do)
I was amazed and amazed with you
That’s what I meant, not what I said to
If you only knew

BROCKHAMPTON – JEREMIAH Lyrics

[Verse 3: Merlyn Wood]
What I’m smokin’?
Account in a coma

She got me off this mornin’
If your shawty, your shawty
Watch she do my chores for me
Heels over her head
Her head so ends up on the ceiling
Try me, shifting in my jeans, don’t need Balmain
Talkin’, all you do is talkin’, be honest (Oh my)
Lil’ bitch, makin’ love then askin’ for a hundred
College to Coachella, this work and vacation
‘Cause the time you stop the party is the time we clockin’
I was in the booth ’til six in the mornin’

BROCKHAMPTON – THE LIGHT PT. II Lyrics

[Intro: Joba]
The light

[Chorus: Joba]
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, why can’t you do it?
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, screamin’ “Please don’t do it”
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, why did you do it?
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, screamin’ “Please don’t do it”

[Verse 1: Kevin Abstract]
Sick of these niggas givin’ me false info
Like I ain’t grow up on MTV, Boondocks and The Chappelle Show
Bitch, I can handle the truth, that’s how I enter the booth
Look at all these bruises I got, it gave me so much confidence
Back when I was making songs at my momma’s crib
The candles lit, the temperature risin’
What type of man can’t find the right time to fly in?
Especially when my cousin dyin’
Should’ve never sold my soul, should’ve protected all my pay-ins
To see the world move without you feel like a daydream
Kool-Aid stains, band-aids wrapped around your beautiful hands
Protect me from the city, couldn’t save me from the world
Back then, had Jeezy on repeat in your whip, no peace in my streets
And these days no license, only take the Jeep if my boyfriend is drivin’
Plus he got the kinda skin that make the police like him
Ever since I was a kid I always felt so frightened
My momma from the ghetto
Her vote go to any nigga that keep Jesus in the convo’
Me and her just got on good terms
Thank God for them unexpected turns
Breaks her heart when she see my city burn
Thank God for teaching me how to learn
Have empathy, even when it burns
But I hate that she got me in this box, expectin’ me to see the light
See the light, see the light
All my niggas to the right, right, right
You see the light, light, light, light
All my niggas to the left-right, left-right, left-right
You see the light, light, light, light, light, light

[Verse 2: Joba]
When that hammer pulled back, did you think of me?
You were the one that taught me how to be
Look at me now in all my glory
Overcame a lot, that’s a different story
Abandoned by the life-giver, lookin’ back at my life different
Deep cuts in the dusk of the final gasp, before your life flashed
What happens when you die? Does it fade black?
I sense you in my skin and the trucker cap
Missed it when we laughed
Didn’t trust my intuition when I saw the cracks
I’m sorry, all I ever want to do is make you proud
Fleetin’ moments, always found a way around the frown
Set aside the pain to celebrate the now
Couldn’t kick me out the house, I was fucked up
Nothing to prove without doubt, if I’m man enough
What’s the use? I could use you, ’cause I’m scared as fuck
Tuck me in, always young enough to feel loved
And share some, are you lookin’ down?
And a child reachin’ out, brittle bone, crying now
The past does not define you
The past does not define you
The burden was too much
Couldn’t save you from yourself when you’d self-destruct
Couldn’t save me from myself when I pushed my luck
To tell the truth, I am just like you
Left it all in the pistol that you used
Always be a little man, following your footsteps
Even though I’m mad, even though you’re gone
You live on, and the day I have kids
And tell ’em ’bout Grandpa and how great he is
And the grandkids’ grandkids
You’ll never meet if it weren’t for you
I wouldn’t be, neither would they
It’s safe to say I’ll find a way out the darkness
The way you left ‘Ma hits me the hardest
What a shame, things change in the blink of an eye
Fade away, fast break to the depths in the sky
Impermanence turned permanent with a nine
That’s life, that’s life

[Chorus: Joba]
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, why can’t you do it?
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, screamin’ “Please don’t do it”
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, why did you do it?
The light is worth the wait, I promise
Wait, screamin’ “Please don’t do it”

BROCKHAMPTON – WHAT’S THE OCCASION? Lyrics

[Chorus: Joba]
A million little pieces all add up to nothin’ lately
Swim within my bedsheets, it’s somethin’ like a celebration
What’s the occasion?
What’s the occasion?

[Verse 1: Matt Champion]
I know my sweat like cologne, see this house ain’t like home
If I could swallow my pride, would you admit when you wrong?
I know it’s easy to just keep it flippin’ out when you gone
Maybe I wouldn’t be so testy when you came for my glow
Got dinner on the kitchen table, make sure everyone know
I made my Sunday mornings feel like Friday nights
I feel like Boobie Miles under these Friday lights
Ready to pounce on any pussy ass bitch come for my life
I’m tired of validation
I’m tired of wonderin’ what the fuck I gotta do to save ya’
You been in this shit for years, I can’t be your savior
[?] with Satan, on my knees I pray on everything I say, breakin’ into

[Chorus: Joba]
A million little pieces all add up to nothin’ lately
Swim within my bedsheets, it’s somethin’ like a celebration
What’s the occasion?
What’s the occasion?

[Verse 2: Joba]
I stay runnin’ from somethin’ I can’t see
True colors blinding, fuck away from me
Gunnin’ for somethin’ I don’t need
I lead two lives, find me
Who’s to blame? Who’s to say I leave?
Forced to change, forced to face my scene
Break a bit, breakin’ in timely
Good on my own, but I been feelin’ alone
I gotta go, don’t ask why
Watch the dominos and the time fly
Either way it goes, scribble outta line
Keep the pictures, they’re fun for when I miss ya

[Chorus: Joba]
A million little pieces all add up to nothin’ lately
Swim within my bedsheets, it’s somethin’ like a celebration
What’s the occasion?
What’s the occasion?

[Bridge: Joba]
What’s the occasion?
What’s the occasion?

[Chorus: Joba]
A million little pieces all add up to nothin’ lately
Swim within my bedsheets, it’s somethin’ like a celebration
What’s the occasion?
What’s the occasion?

BROCKHAMPTON – WHEN I BALL Lyrics

[Verse 1: Dom McLennon]
My momma said I didn’t come into this world with tears
Instead I welcomed her with open eyes and open ears
Became the glue to a few things that couldn’t be repaired
We saw a future in each other, blending hope and fear
Some things you don’t get to decide, it’s just the fate you share
I used to try to hold the weight, that she would need to bear
Watched uncles going on vacation for a couple years
Whеn they came back, they needеd clothes, and had no souvenirs
I picked up the phone, they callin’ us from correction
But nothin’ is wrong, it’s fillin’ my heart with questions
My momma is home, I’m followin’ her expressions
A drop in her the tone, some things that she had to mention
I nodded, I listened, she had all of my attention
“When you on your own, there’s gonna be some directions
I need you to follow, and never make an exception”
I nodded, she held me, and wished I would be protected

[Chorus: Joba & Kevin Abstract]
You always used to tell me
I could be anything I wanna be
But it’s hard to see, it’s hard to be
You always used to tell me
I could be anything I wanna be
But it’s hard to see, it’s hard to be

[Verse 2: Matt Champion]
On my sucker-free shit since I was a fetus
Pullin’ up at the doc’ in a Mazda six two six
And my dad was trippin’ bad, hit the gas like car chase
Light blue in the back, momma gettin’ late for pay
Dropped my sister at the bozo house, was twenty-three
Sweat drippin’ down the face side, river runnin’ free
Dark mornin’ with the fog pourin’ in and out the trees
Every moment through they eyes
Seemin’, zoomin’ lightspeed before me
She lost, but still want tragedy
Grittin’ her teeth down to the root, pain, like a cavity
Hold her hands like they glue, radio channel on news
Valentine’s with a X up on the calendar, they knew
I would be a fuckin’ baller like them posters on the wall
A little stain can be the beauty in it all
I missed out of trouble, most your luck was rubbin’ off
Stickin’ to you like moss, you my Kate, you my rock
Forever

[Chorus: Joba & Kevin Abstract]
You always used to tell me
I could be anything I wanna be
But it’s hard to see, it’s hard to be
You always used to tell me
I could be anything I wanna be
But it’s hard to see, it’s hard to be

[Bridge: Joba]
Here I go, I’m gonna spread my wings
All grown up like go and look at me
You’ll always be (You’ll always be)
A part of me (A part of me)
Here I go, I’m gonna spread my wings
All grown up like go and look at me
You’ll always be (You’ll always be)
A part of me (A part of me)

[Outro: Joba]
That’s why
A part of me, a part of me, a part of me
A part of me, a part of me, a part of me
That’s why

Swizz Beatz Beams With Pride Announcing Verzuz Is Bigger Than SNL

Verzuz bigger than SNL, says Swizz Beatz.

Just how good is the Verzuz platform? Well, co-founder Swizz Beatz thinks it’s good enough to rival the highly syndicated NBC comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live. That’s a big claim, but it’s easy to see why he might be feeling proud of all that the platform has accomplished especially following their latest installment of the show, which brought in millions of viewers from around the world.

He shared his feelings of accomplishment during an Instagram Live earlier this week with the other founder, Timbaland, as they discussed the huge impact of The Isley Brothers and Earth Wind and Fire battle. Swizz even thinks that the franchise has shot past SNL.

“We bigger than that,” he said, beaming with pride before adding: “Our numbers beat SNL already. Our numbers is bigger than SNL. That’s not even, like, cap. That’s real talk. It’s already happening.”

He also said he doesn’t want to rank the battle because it brought its own unique mark to the platform. What he’s more interested in is celebrating all that the two bands achieved and how many people were appreciative of their effort to entertain.

“It’s not about the best Verzuz,” he added. “It’s about celebrating the creative. So some nights we gonna have the Super Bowl, some nights we gonna have the Pro Bowl, some nights we gonna have the Rose Bowl. But we’re gonna have a good time,” he continued.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next virtual battle, which is expected to be an ode to marijuana as Method Man and Red Man come head to head on April 20. Then it’s on to an exciting ’90s R&B square off, which will see SWV take on Xscape on May 8 at 8 p.m. as Season 2 roars on.

Tommy Lee Sparta Hints In New Song He Was Setup By Friends

Tommy Lee Sparta released two new singles on Friday, April 9, where he seemingly addressed his legal troubles.

The Dancehall artiste, whose real name is Leroy Russell, also released the new animation for his recent song “Weh U Woulda Do” a few hours after dropping a gritty single, “3 Point.” The later, which is another way of referring to life, is a gritty dancehall track that involves its fair share of violence and threats.

In the song, Tommy Lee Sparta sings, “Some boy nuh bad none at all, shoot yuh face make the frowns drop off. Funeral day dem close you off hear the church dem a sing to God. Run thef**king place like a f**king race, hear a bolt take off. Dem swear say a rain a fall when mi pop off the 40 ball.”

The song, produced by Donsome Records, comes after news that the 33-year-old deejay may be implicated in crimes that could put him away for life. The “Spartan Soldier” deejay has had many run-ins with the law over the last six years. The deejay’s luck seemingly ran out late last year when he was held with an illegal firearm and ammunition. The deejay pled guilty to the charges in March and will serve three years behind bars.

Tommy Lee Sparta made headlines again this week when police sources reported that the gun he pled guilty to having is linked to at least two murders in the corporate area and three cases of shooting with intent.

The murders are that of renowned dancehall personalities Owen Clarke, also known as Roy Fowl or Father Fowl, and Alphanso Harriott, also known as Oney British – both of the British Link Up Crew. Both men were murdered in 2019. Tommy Lee’s attorney, Donahue Martin, continues to deny his client’s involvement in any such crimes.

Tommy Lee Sparta’s second release for the day possibility contains the answers about who actually committed the crimes he may soon have to answer to.

“Weh You Woulda Do” sees the dancehall deejay meeting with his inner demon. “Weh yuh woulda duh? Warn yuh bout yuh fren longtime An as yuh tun yuh back yuh get a knife juck. Weh yuh woulda duh? Far wi a come from school days half a pencil an a book, Weh yuh woulda duh? Play supa hero like Christ an end up duh wah Christ duh fi yuh, What dem guh duh?” Sparta deejays.

The song stands centered on the themes of betrayal and disloyalty, where Tommy Lee Sparta insinuates that he was framed by a friend. We should point out that no formal murder charges are made against the deejay.

Ashanti Iced Flo Rida Dating Rumors After Spotted On Yacht Together

Ashanti says Flo Rida is her brother amid fresh dating rumors after he shared pics of them on a yacht.

For years the rumor mill has consistently tried to put Flo Rida and Ashanti together as a couple. That’s mainly because the two have shared such a long and enduring friendship. The rumors died down for a while but were freshly stoked up once again after the rapper recently posted pictures of himself with Ashanti sharing a vacation together at the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico.

Fans immediately started to excitedly ponder if the two were, in fact, together. It didn’t help that Ashanti was showing off her body in the pics. TheShaderoom caught wind of the pics and started to infer that maybe the two were really romantically involved. That was almost immediately shut down by Ashanti herself, who once again let fans know that they are just friends and that she considers the “My House” singer to be family.

The “Foolish” singer commented: “Aht aht Flo is my brother. We’re family! Celebrating my sis @liltuneshi bday!!! Happy Birthday Bink!” With those words, she effectively shut down any gossip that the two could be dating, much to the disappointment of some fans who feel that they would make an awesome power couple.

The rapper posted a series of photos of himself enjoying the sun beachside with Ashanti in the background. In one of the pictures, Ashanti could be seen lounging in a Dior bikini on a yacht right next to Flo Rida, who was also wearing a Dior tank top. He captioned that post: “If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile.’”

Ashanti also showed off her body in a printed bikini while taking in the tropical views poolside. Fans thought for sure it was a romantic partnership when Flo Rida responded to her pictures with flame emojis in the comments. Other reports indicated that it was Ashanti’s sister Shia’s birthday, and she joined them on the mini-vacay.

50 Cent Avoids Fight With Diddy For Dating His Baby Mama Daphne Joy

50 Cent says he’s not about to get into a fight with Diddy for dating his baby mama, Daphne Joy.

For years there have been rumors of a possible rift between two of hip hop’s biggest megastars, 50 Cent and Sean “Diddy” Combs. The rumors may have started circulating over allegations that Diddy owed the Black Mafia Family for some of his success. There have also been talks of a possible rift over Vodka brands. Whatever the case may be, both have stated they have no issues despite the rumors circulating in the media.

It seems a new topic has emerged to throw gossip-mongers into another tizzy about Fifty and Diddy’s relationship. This time the subject is none other than one of Fifty’s former flames Daphne Joy, who also happen to share a son with Fifty. Earlier this week, paparazzi shots surfaced online of Daphne and Diddy cozying up together.

This, of course, sparked rumors of another possible cause for an alleged rift between both rappers. However, the G-Unit rapper took to social media to “clear the air.” He posted one of the photos with Diddy and Daphne with the caption: “Nah me and puff fight over business sh*t, If he like the girl he like the girl ?

Shellac – Steady As She Goes Lyrics

Steady as she goes on with life
She was walking down a hall
I feel like I’m breaking
She looks calm and steady as she goes

Steady as she goes on with life
Does she think of me at all?
I feel like I’m breaking
As she goes on with life
As she was walking down a hall
Jesus Christ, I’m shaking
As something shakes before it falls

I did got my rifle
Goes up through the smoke
Jesus Christ, I’m shaking
When I get home?
Will I get home?
Steady as she goes
I feel like I’m breaking

It’s something great before it

Steady as she goes on with life
She was walking down a hall
I feel like I’m breaking
As she goes

Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she goes
Hold steady as she

DMX Complete An Entire Album Of Work Before Death

DMX recorded an entire album of new music before his death.

The hip hop world is still in shock after the sudden loss of DMX, a legend in the rap game and arguably one of the best to ever grab the mic. Although DMX’s death will be felt among fans and music industry friends for many years to come, a forthcoming project by the Ruff Ryders alum has been confirmed by his friend and collaborator, Darrin “Dee” Dean.

During an interview with Fox 5 New York, Dean revealed that he and X spent the early part of 2020 working on a new album in Nashville following a road trip in an RV. Dee was not afraid to set expectations high for the project, saying, “It’s sad that he’s not gonna be here, but the music…This album right here is special. Like you probably never heard no music like you heard on this one that we did right now.”

From a public perspective, DMX seemed to be doing well in recent months. His manager, Craig Brodhead, and producer Swizz Beatz had both gone on record to report that DMX was healthy, motivated, and looking forward to the next chapter of his career. Speaking on the unreleased project, Brodhead said, “He was excited about it. He couldn’t wait to promote it and get out there with the music.”

The project was to be DMX’s first release following a new deal with Def Jam signed in 2019. The excitement surrounding the album was already heightened when X namedropped several of his recent collaborators during one of his final interviews, including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, Usher, and the late Pop Smoke.

DMX reminded the world what he was made of in July of last year when he went head-to-head and hit for hit with fellow rap icon Snoop Dogg on Verzuz, the incredibly popular music platform that stirred up nostalgia in millions of hip hop and R&B fans throughout the pandemic. Hearing X’s extensive catalog of hits hyped-up fans in anticipation of new music, and although DMX has tragically joined the ranks of talented rappers taken far too soon, he left us with the gift of a final album.

Additionally, X was reportedly working on a show about fatherhood in which he planned to introduce his kids to each other for the first time, and an HBO documentary featuring the rapper is said to have finished filming before his death. DMX passed away on Friday at the age of 50 after suffering a heart attack.

Quavo Checks In With Popcaan In Jamaica While Escaping Saweetie Drama Stateside

Migos rapper Quavo and Popcaan have linked up in Jamaica, causing fans to speculate that the two might be up to musical mischief.

As customary these days, almost every overseas artists touching down in Jamaica checks in with the Unruly Boss. A video posted by Quavo showed the two artists hanging out. The Migos rapper is seen shirtless and wearing some three-quarter pants, while Popcaan is stylish with an orange graphic t-shirt and chambray button-down shirt with his jewelry. Offset and Takeoff were not in the clip but were probably somewhere close hanging out.

“What we doing?” Quavo asks in the video, to which Popcaan responds, “Vroom, Outside.”

This might be a good move for the Atlanta rapper to escape some bad press recently regarding his ex-girlfriend Saweetie happening Stateside. Urban Islandz reported on a leaked song snippet of Quavo rapping about taking back the Bentley he gifted Saweetie in December as a Christmas present. The ex-couple was also forced to issue statements addressing a leaked video of an altercation between them from last year in Los Angeles. Despite it triggering a police investigation, both said the incident was unfortunate, and they’ve already moved past it.

Snowgoons – The Real And The Raw Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
It’s clear to me these dudes ain’t breathing the same air as me
Apparently my clarity is bringing fans near to me
Show to show severity, don’t you know it’s wearing me
But I keep grinding on my hopes inherently
Coldest flow in Seven Seas, wrote this soul of seventies
Go for broke, I’m bending knees
Hold the hope of friends in need
The hardest working inserting no burden
Will burden the verdict, diverted the vermin and murdered the circuit
Biting emcees talk a lot of shit
Bottle split, hollow tips, model chicks love to swallow dick
Me? I don’t bother with, barely acknowledge it
Only thing I ever bit? My bottom lip

[Chorus]

[Scratching]

[Verse 2:]
Literally I am the epitome homes
Acclaimed critically downloaded digitally
Known from London to Italy
I slaughter these lamb ass niggas lyrically hypothetically realistically
The trees glistening, the cocaine crystally
And I am viciously controlling Boston officially
They say you Jaysaun? I am I am
Two truths: I don’t take the stand, to bare love’s hand
I’m no rat and I don’t wear no wires
I rain fire, bitch niggas gotta call me sire
You okay with them punchlines
But I would devour your whole career in a lunch line at crunchtime

You just nibble on your rappers, I munch mine
You chew em too long, I eat a bunch at one time
I’m Walter Payton Ricky Williams combined
Blowing weed at the NFL come by to unwind
You the type to be unsigned with hype
For so long you could’ve blown but never really quite
Doing it ten years and that shit ain’t right
So I’m cutting off the light, goodnight, it’s all over

[Verse 3:]
It’s an automatic slaughter, caught em walking, talking louder
Nah I caught em, pop n’ locked and rocked the noggin out of order, listen
Been dope since the thin rope tied my tummy
Write music for my fans not the pride money
Building the career until the ceiling interfere
I breathe out knowledge, put the healing in the air
Appealing with the snare [?], noticed internationally
Dealing with the fear, haters focusing on passing me
Talk a lot of this and that, acting like their pistol claps
Acting like aristocrats, fact is that they’re missing facts
I pen my soul, they spend their dough
My flow’s frozen like ten below
The best in the game, best invest in the name
Yes I’m destined for fame, rest get left in the rain
Best believe the hype, I’ll lead riots till the hopeless can see the light

[Chorus]

Choir – To Bid Farewell Lyrics

Away we go again
Too early in the morning
Just one more thought or three
Before I say goodbye
Insurance policies
Are in the second drawer, love
Now, listen close to one last

Sad sigh
For the words I never would say
If I were to bid farewell my love today
A glad sigh
For the promise of a new day
If I were to bid farewell and fly away

I’ve sung a thousand songs
Give or take four hundred
Tried to ride the clouds
I know you came along
I feel some turbulence now
And if this were farewell, friend
Would you hear one final

Sad song
For the songs I never would sing
If I were to bid farewell my friend today

A glad song
As the bells beyond the night ring

And though I walked beneath the Moon
The sun was in my eyes
So this is not a sorry tune
But Heaven help me

A sad sigh
For the words I never would say
If I were to bid farewell the world today
A glad sigh
For the promise of a new day
If I were to bid farewell and fly away
A sad sigh
For the songs I never could sing
If I were to bid farewell to you today
A glad song
As the bells beyond the night ring
If I were to bid farewell and fade away
If I were to bid farewell and fade away
If I were to bid farewell and fade away

Teejay Drops Two New Tracks “Young Rich” and “Don’t Stop Wine” – Listen Them

Teejay released two new tracks this weekend for your playlist. “Don’t Stop Whine” on the Usain Bolt Clockwork Riddim off his EP of the same name that was produced by A-Team Lifestyle and “Young Rich.”

Although both tracks were only released a few hours ago, they are already racking up views on YouTube, and fans have commented on the versatility of the deejays voice and his lyrical content. Teejay joins a host of top dancehall acts, including Vybz Kartel, Charly Blacks, and Christopher Martin, to name a few, who are featured on the “Clockwork” EP. His track “Don’t Stop Whine” is just what the ladies ordered, and its smooth, silky flow should earn him a few extra fans.

“Young Rich” also shows the artiste’s vocal range. The track has been in the works since February when Natural Bond Entertainment CEO Jerome Elvie hinted at a collaboration with Teejay. Most of Teejays recent tracks have focused on him making positive changes in his life and motivating others to do the same.

He is known for heavy-hitting tracks such as “From Rags To Riches,” “Stimulate,” “Owna Lane,” and “My Type,” among others. With star quality splashes on just about everything he sings, there was no surprise that after only a few hours, these two tracks have already started to attract the attention of dancehall fans locally and in the diaspora.

Busy Signal Says Publishing Deal With Sony Music Is “A Good Look”

Busy Signal signed a publishing deal with Sony Music Publishing.

Things are looking up in Busy Signal‘s music career more than a decade after he got started in the business. The veteran dancehall artiste penned a new publishing deal with Rich Stone/Sony Music Publishing/Benelux. The agreement was orchestrated by Rich Stone Publishing’s Richie Flores, who Busy said reached out to him to make the deal.

Sony Music Publishing (formerly Sony/ATV) is a major publishing house whose roster includes the likes of Ed Sheeran, BTS, Celine Dion, John Legend, 50 Cent, and more. Dancehall artistes Beenie Man and Skillibeng are also signed to the outfit. In a recent interview with the Jamaica Observer, Busy Signal encouraged other artists to find a publisher so they can establish lifelong income from their work.

“It’s a good look. Mi doing music for some time an’ wi now starting to get certain deals, it shows something and it motivates me to keep doing what I am doing. I keep working while attracting new markets and new ventures,” the deejay said. “Having a publisher dat’s like your pension. Dat’s your retirement plan, dat’s your everything in terms of di music business aspect of it. Whether you’re a co-writer or you wrote di song by yourself, its always good to have your publishing set up.

He continued, “Your publisher monitors airplay, they authorize the use of your song in commercials or in samples of music. They are very important in terms of what we do. I would urge every artiste to reach out to a publisher.”

Busy, who also recently signed a single deal with Universal Music UK subsidiary 3 Beat, says it’s a blessing to work with a major because it really enhances an artist’s reach. His new single “Bad Gyal” which was released a week ago has already garnered over a quarter of a million streams on Spotify.

“It’s a blessing working with a company like Universal,” Busy explained. “We do di work; people see di work and feel di work. Di link to the link. Richie (Flores) reached out to me an’ said some people are interested in working with me, an’ he set di thing. And out comes di deal with 3 Beat and I’m so thankful. Dat’s a big one.”

While Busy Signal first achieved mainstream success when he teamed up with Major Lazer for their smash hit song “Watch Out Fi Dis” in 2013, this somehow still seems like his real big break. The dancehall star told the publication that he often dabbles in things outside of Jamaican culture and is constantly evolving. On his journey, he says he has been encouraged by some of reggae music’s icons, including Beres Hammond and Frederick ‘Toots’ Hibbert.

With a single deal under Universal and a publishing deal under Sony now in his portfolio, Busy Signal is looking forward to what’s to come.

He added that his mother was always charitable to those in the community and she was extremely popular, so popular for her good deeds that dancehall Deejay Dexta Daps dedicated one of his songs after her- “Shabba Madda Pot,” named after her feeding many children in her community.

“And not only her children but everyone else children because you know from I know my mother my mother never cook a pot of food and her seven pickney alone eat that, everybody else come in and get a plate and her favourite word to me is give to all the people you can, as long as you can, however you can,” Shabba said to which there were shouts of  agreement from the crowd.

H.E.R. Calls On Reggae Artists For Her New EP

Grammy Award-winning soul singer H.E.R. has landed in Jamaica as she works on an upcoming reggae-inspired EP as well as a song on DJ Khaled’s upcoming album “Khaled Khaled.”

The soulful singer who collaborated with Bob Marley’s grandson Skip Marley on their hit song “Slow Down” which was nominated for a Grammy, said her EP will feature other reggae artists from within the island.

“Me and DJ Khaled have a song together that I’m really excited for people to hear, and he wanted to shoot the video here. My EP that I’ll be releasing is gonna feature a lot of reggae artistes. It’s gonna be dope,” she said to local newspaper, Jamaica Observer.

H.E.R says after making “Slow Down” she was inspired to make Reggae music, especially since she has always loved the genre.

“I felt like Slow Down was one song that made me even want to dive into reggae even deeper. I’ve always loved reggae, and now I’m about to do a whole reggae project,” she began. “My EP is definitely coming this year. I’m still finishing it up and making sure its great before releasing it.”

“Slow Down” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best R&B song. The song was among several nominations for H.E.R. (acronym for Having Everything Revealed), who was born Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson at the Grammys. She eventually walked away with Song of the Year for 2021 for her song “I can’t breathe.”

The song was centered around the Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd, whose last words were “I can’t breathe,” as a police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knees on his neck for nine minutes. An ongoing trial of Chauvin has found that his actions led to the death of Floyd.

According to H.E.R, the ensuing protests and social upheaval weighed heavy on her, and the win for her song was unexpected.

“It’s such a big deal and an honour. I didn’t expect to win it, and there were so many amazing artistes in the same category. When I heard the announcement, I was super surprised. The [song’s] message, it really came from my own personal anxiety and looking at the world around me and my perspective of the world and what was going on in the summer of 2020 and the protests in America,” she said.

A post shared by H.E.R. (@hermusicofficial)

“I couldn’t really believe that people listened to the song and it gave them perspective. It really means the world to me just because it’s an important message and also very personal to me.”

Meanwhile, H.E.R has not revealed who the artists are who will feature on her EP, but it seems likely that DJ Khaled is lining up the links among the best of Reggae and Dancehall. The EP is expected to be released later this year.

Spiritualized – Come Together Lyrics

Little Johnny’s sad and f*cked
First he jumped and then he looked
The tracks of time, these tracks of mine
Little Johnny’s occupied
Come on, come together
Come on, come together
Well little Johnny had an ache
That hung around the poor boy’s neck
Every time that Johnny ate
The little f*cker fed the ache
Come on, come together
Come on, come together

So little J’s a f*cked-up boy
Dulled the pain that killed the joy
So little J’s a f*cking mess
That when he’s offered just says yes
Little J is sad and f*cked
First he jumped and then he looked
The tracks of time, these tracks of mine
Little J is occupied
Come on, come together
Come on, come together
Come together, come together

Shamrain – Passing Shadows Lyrics

Where are you now?
Thought I heard your voice
Like outside of all time
Thought I saw your shape
Here near by me
It happens all the time
I guess you’re out there somewhere
Today I remembered your (sad) smile
And how it used to be before

We dream of an ocean
Once bloomed in our hearts

The words are dead now
She haunts me apart

You came and stayed
Slept through the days
Carried a fragile mind
Season of woe
Dwelled too deep
And didn’t let you go

We dream of an ocean
Once bloomed in our hearts
The words are dead now
She haunts me apart

Tayo nang magkantahan
“My Way” na Walang kamatayan.

Ang mic ay pagagawan
Isalang mo na, pare!

Sabi ng kapitbahay,
ayos lang kahit maingay,
basta’t may tinatagay.
isalang mo na pare!

Sarah Vaughan – I’d Rather Have A Memory Than A Dream (Hot Jazz – 1953) Lyrics

I’d rather have a memory than a dream,
For then I’d learn what heaven’s all about.
There’d be an angel in my arms, you fit right in the seat,
And then my heart could just keep singing out!

I’d rather have your kisses than a smile,
For then there’d be the magic of romance.
The thrill of being all your own, yes even for a while,
Is something I’d be brave enough to chance!

For dreams are just imagination,
While memories are as real as you,
And I’ve enough imagination
To wish that all my dreams come true!

I’d rather have you near me than apart,
For then you’d know exactly what I mean,
But when I’m far away from here and long for you, sweetheart,
I’d rather have a memory than a dream!

I’d rather have a memory than a dream!
