New Artist Spotlight: KID LAB RAT Combines Unique Vocal Style, Tuned Down Nu Metal and Hip Hop

Thus far only in grime music and British hip hop has there been any real prevalence of rap lyrics that are half sung, half rapped lyrics.

Pimf – Wicker Park Lyrics

[Intro]
Golden State Baby, Windy City
[Part 1]
Ich leb jetzt mein’ Traum – Irgendwas mit Rap
Die ganze Nacht am Schreiben und den halben Tag im Bett
Manche geben mir Respekt – die meisten Leute halten mich für’n Depp
Sie sagen “Such dir mal ein’ Job” und vielleicht haben sie Recht
Die meiste Zeit von Ängsten geplant und
Timo zahlt die Miete vom Nebenjob im Getränkemarkt
Ich wohne noch zuhause damit das geht
2 Freunde angetrieben von dem Traum, der uns trägt
So läuft das jetzt seit Jahren mit der Mukke
Wir könn’ uns sicher nichts ersparen von der Mukke
Manche suchen jetzt ein Haar in der Suppe
Aber ja, wir ham’ immer noch Spaß an der Mukke
Keine Ahnung wer mir später meine Rente zahlt
Doch diese Welt ist größer als nur ein Getränkemarkt
Und so will ich weitermachen was mir liegt
Was mich irgendwie erfüllt und mir irgend etwas gibt
[Hook: Cuts]
I rap to build or I rap to ruin
Tryin’ to keep it true
Take it to the
Hip Hop remains
You’ve got to do this from your heart meaning your inner soul
I rap to build (build b-build)
It’s all for the love
Tryin’ to keep it true
See I did it for years and years and
As for me see I just do how I love to do
[Part 2]
Ich hab Bock aus meinem Leben was zu machen
Lass mal die Tasche packen, einfach überraschen lassen
Mein Kopf ist Chaos, aber ich will darin wühlen
Nix mit Business-Kalkül oder Sicherheitsgefühl
Denn ich war schon immer schlecht darin etwas zu planen
Aber leicht zu begeistern und auch immer gern spontan
Die Scheiße mit der Mucke war ‘ne Schnapsidee
Und ob sie aufgeht ist immer noch nicht abzusehen
Denn während das Niveau weiter schrumpft mach ich underrated brotlose Kunst
Aber sowas von ehrlich, an der Seite meines allerbesten Freundes
So oft daran gezweifelt aber kein Stück bereut, Bruder
Ich bin zufrieden, auch wenn es morgen vorbei ist
Und mein Lifestyle meiner Mom so viele Sorgen bereitet
Guck ich hab bis heute nur gemacht, was mir liegt
Ich hab soviel erlebt und verkackt mit Musik
[Hook: Cuts]
I rap to build or I rap to ruin
Tryin’ to keep it true
Take it to the
Hip Hop remains
You’ve got to do this from your heart meaning your inner soul
I rap to build (build b-build)
It’s all for the love
Tryin’ to keep it true
See I did it for years and years and
As for me see I just do how I love to do

Devo Spice – Dinky McDiddlyboots Lyrics

Well, I’m a Hip Hop maven, with rhymes that I’m cravin’
Beard with the lines that I’m shavin’
Weird, but at times I’m amazin’, not to be
Feared, but sometimes I think I’m kinda crazy
Lazy, sit around the house eatin’ popcorn
Mouse button clickin’ on a picture full of hot porn
Pickin’ up laundry, fold what is not torn
Find a pair of underwear there that I’ve not worn
Got a name that the rap game gave me
Crowds shout it loud while they clap and are raving
Proud of the rowdiness happening daily
Cloud-nine rhymes ’cause I’m frakkin’ amazing
Till one day when a strange man changed it
Willed his way and his brain now reigns it
Chains my name to this wack identity
While he’s out back playing Pac-Man and Centipede
My name is Dinky McDiddlyboots
My music is plinky and Ritalin-fused
Ned Flanders thinks in “diddly-doos”
But I’m MC Dinky McDiddlyboots
My name is Dinky McDiddlyboots
My music is plinky and Ritalin-fused
Pac-Man eats Inky and Blinky and fruits
But I’m MC Dinky McDiddlyboots
Now I gotta make changes to everything
Every song’s wrong so the files will never ping
Miles of lyrics to compile with a clever string
While I clear it with Google and even Bing
And because of this stupid jerk I have to
Update all my paperwork, great, now I’m late for work
Name on my licenses changed to reflect it
Drivers, marriage, and bikini inspector’s
My whole life’s turned upside-down
I obliged this clown and my wife skipped town
And I found at work they would leave me out of meetings
But call me all day to play voicemail greetings
This may be his crowning achievement
I’m drowning in spite but I try to be lenient
I’ve seen it, this may sound trite but I mean it
This really is quite inconvenient
My name is Dinky McDiddlyboots
My music is plinky and Ritalin-fused
Ned Flanders thinks in “diddly-doos”
But I’m MC Dinky McDiddlyboots
My name is Dinky McDiddlyboots
My music is plinky and Ritalin-fused
Shoebox is a big mean stinkety poop
Now I’m MC Dinky McDiddlyboots
Hi my name is (What?)
My name is (Who?)
My name is Dinky McDiddlyboots

Sansar Salvo – Politik Analiz Lyrics (feat. Zahriyan)

[Verse 1: Zahriyan]
İçimde varsın dilimle sek duvarsın dilim için duamsın
Sözümde bedduamsın son kanın damlasın
Mezopotamya’da çicekler aksın
Bahar hiç ağlamasın (sobe)
Dilimde damlayıp kapandı karla kirli nağralar
Kapandı şimdi ağrılar masallarım ve martılar
Yıkıp biçen, ezip geçen, bu lehçem anlatır
Gözümde canlanır kilisten İstanbul ah Türkiye
Elimde değnek olsa gücümde varsa
Siyah beyaz duayle?ri arıtsam hafızamda
Artık aldı bomda sesleri
Çukurların içinde saklarınır çocuklar
Yalınayak tamam kudüs dayan tamam
Açık kanal yeter kapat izlemem ben TV
Diskolarda kafa sallayıp çeker vodka hepsi
Reina çıkışları gırgır dimi (oley oley)
Kaçını kaybetti bu vatan sizin için (okey okey)
[Verse 2: Sansar Salvo]
Politik analizi güçlü öğretmen
Sınıfındayım ve bana bi bok öğretmez
Kapital okula **münü geçiren adam
Tribal adama çakala çakalı soran
Çakarak çakmağı güne başlıyorum
Var mı haberin be güzelim düzeni yıkıp
Üzerine çıkıp tepinerek rakı çakıp
Zerafet bi takı takıp kıçı açıp
Çivisi çıkan bişey yok artık boku çıktı
Sürekli savaş herkes çok akıllı
Tamam bende tutmuyorum Tayyip Erdoğan’ı
Ama aralarında göremiyorum daha akıllısını
Punk dinle Sabac Red rap ne bil
Kafasına göre gidiyo çok kopil
2001’den beri yok tatilim
Beni etme Hip Hop’çı katili

YMA4 – About Me lyrics

[Intro: A4]
Yeah

I’m feeling so different today
(What do they wanna know!)
I know lotta ya wanna know what we gon’ say
(Haha)
So keep your ears clean and listen

[Hook X2: young mahasi]
I’m working overtime cause am working on my song
I know that am good since I created lot of songs
What else I can’t do since you know about me?
Yeah about me

[Verse: 1 young mahasi]
Dfc the best flow, flow of my lines
We’ve been makin’ music lately now we get played
All round the world they indebted our art
After we made a song named my self workin’ Wiz Khalifa’s instrumeno with my team
The greatest team of heed with intention to feed everybody with the product that they do really need
Haters will always say negative points of view
They act like they know you more than how you know yourself
Is funny when I see them walkin’ up in the street expectin’ me to greet
I strike an attitude cause their babies are prostitute
Hip Hop is what I know dfc is how I flow
Cause am rhyming on my lyrics like a previous show that you missed
You got lot to say
My lawyer has to say it
Cause you ain’t get paid
I laugh how you live cause you give me strength

I’m working overtime cause am working on my song
I know that am good since I created lot of songs

[Verse: 2 A4]
I put myself all together
My life is so amazing I will never set now
I keep on grandin’, now am in my life so beautiful
What is it that you want to grow? Don’t be inconvenient
People think when I rap about my lyrics
You gotta learn how to run, learn how to be a convent
Sometimes we create hate with the people that we love just to impress our fam
That ain’t good at all
I’m not the author am the lyricist
My lyrics are my story
They defiantly leadin’ far but my life so easy
That’s about me
I’m humbling lot about myself, whatchu wanna know?
Beyond arcade things, I play the arcade games
Everytime I try to hold everybody close
I gather times plot fames together like a string attached to them
Like a lose belt
Don’t hate on me you all

[Hook X2: young mahasi]
I’m working overtime cause am working on my song
I know that am good since I created lot of songs
What else I can’t do since you know about me?
Yeah about me

[Verse: 3 A4]
Uh
I’m like a movie trade so unstoppable
I can tell lot about myself some of you, you can’t handle me
Am unhandled
If you want me to sign your contract for your life time
You gotta explain why
Sometime we fall for thing that end up destroying us
I’mmer said it like a bell driving ship to them home
Sweetest thing about me is that am sweet everybody loves me
I don’t go around asking for daddy
I am not a garbage
I am independent
I associate myself with good people
Call that Good Associater
I call my buddies to my house throwing parties
I am good and I like giggling
I am whining
It’s all about me
Am shooting unexpected bullets
That’s how I kill when I rap
No lame niggas gonna play around me like a baby toy

[Hook X2: young mahasi]
I’m working overtime cause am working on my song
I know that am good since I created lot of songs
What else I can’t do since you know about me?
Yeah about me

Cardi B Blast Tami Roman For Spreading Pregnancy Conspiracy

Cardi B woke up at 9 pm checked her Instagram and saw Tami Roman speaking about her pregnancy reports.

Cardi’s performance in Trinidad on Thursday night was well received but the images from her set only serve to add more fuel to the chatters about her pregnancy. Of course, she already addressed the rumors saying she is just eating well and putting on a little weight. Some folks don’t buy it but that’s her explanation. Love and Hip Hop personality Tami Roman went a step further and post a video of herself telling Cardi B to make a formal announcement on her pregnancy. She also begged the rapper not to come for her but she still did and something tells me that this is only the beginning.

“I really like Cardi am a fan of hers I think that she is funny and all and I met her on the red carpet one time and I told her that I was proud of what she was doing and that hasn’t changed,” Tami Roman said.

“Don’t come for me Cardi because this is just my opinion and it matters to nobody but me,” she continues. “So let me state my opinion and its all in love. On the picture, you look pregnant. Now I know you said that you’re just getting fat and that’s okay too but am just saying it looked pregnant, that pregnant lady belly that’s what it looks like about two-three months I don’t know… Just make the announcement.”

Tami Roman has since deleted the video but the damage was already done, all the blogs already ran with it. Cardi B got word of it and fired off a fiery statement before going back to take her nap.

“I got home at 9 a.m. from the studio,” the Bronx rapper wrote. “I slept all the way till 1 pm. I woke up and did a couple of fittings. I went back home about 4 p.m. I drank tea glass of orange juice and popped some Tylenol to sweat a fever out you know regular minding my business type of sh*t. I woke up at 9 p.m., and I see that mother****er is talking about me. Why the f*** are you talking about me? I don’t ever talk about other people!!! I am talking about my s*** but not about other people especially if I don’t know you. So why is my name in your mouth? Do I make a check for you? Do I f*** with you? Am I eating your pu**y? Am I helping you find a job? So why is cardi B in your f****ng mouth?”

Nicki Minaj Decline Safaree Samuels Reunion Calls Him Ungrateful [Exclusive]

Nicki Minaj maybe single again but that doesn’t mean she is ready to hook up back with her ex Safaree Samuels.

The Love and Hip Hop star has been shooting his shots lately in an attempt to get her back or perhaps he just wants to get her attention. Last week he publicly told his fans during a performance that he misses her. Given their twelve years of history, you would think that it would be much easier for them to rekindle their old flame, but it’s quite the opposite. We’re told Nicki sees him as an ungrateful human being whom she wants to stay as far away from as possible.

Sources close to the Trinidadian rapper told DancehallHipHop that there is a lot of bitterness between the two, particularly on Nicki Minaj part. She felt like he never gave her a chance to make things right when he abruptly got up and walk out leave her. She also felt like his actions since their breakup such as his lawsuit against her and working with her enemies pretty much killed all hopes of any reunion. “The lawsuit was the ultimate betrayal in her eyes because he wasn’t just a lawsuit to her, it was also like a shakedown and then on top of that he tried to cast a cloud over her career about writing her lyrics,” sources said. “All those interviews he did talking bad about her and now he expects her to just forget about them and welcome him back. It’s like now he missing that old lifestyle of the private jets, jewelry, and fast cars.”

Although Nicki felt like Safaree betrayed her post their breakup, she isn’t at all innocent in that department because who can forget all those times she and Meek Mill taunt Safaree on Twitter. She even did a full album about their breakup. They both went on and dated other people, although SB dated a bunch of women since then. For her part, Nicki hooked up with Meek Mill right after her relationship with Samuels ended, in fact, SB publicly says Meek was the main reason their relationship ended because he rated him out about cheating on her. Samuels maybe right, they are both been unlucky in love. Even Maury Povich thinks that they should get back together or at least give it another shot.

“It’s not even about how many women he dated since then, they weren’t together so she doesn’t care about that, it’s much more about how messy he was with all the interviews and lawsuit crap,” our source revealed. Of all the things happening behind the scenes between Nicki Minaj and Safaree, one thing for sure did take place, he did reaches out to her recently and got rejected. “Well he knows her better than most people, she is a firecracker so he can’t be all that surprised if she rejected him in a very cringe-worthy way, I still laugh about it,” our insider said. “Yes he did reach out and I don’t think he will stop because he told their mutual friends that he wants her back. Whether or not she will take him back, I doubt it, but you just never know.”

Earlier this month, we reported that Nicki Minaj and Nas mutually ended their relationship and Safaree was right there reminding her that they have both been unlucky with love since their split. While he didn’t explicitly expresses his wish to rekindle their relationship, his gesture made it pretty clear he was on a mission.

“No they aren’t together and was never really seriously together, to begin with, the media just overblown things as usual,” sources said. “Living on different coasts hundreds of miles apart made it impossible to sustain a relationship and they are both very busy individuals.”

There are some other stuffs that may complicate things for him. Safaree is still cast on Love and Hip Hop and a few other reality TV shows. How would that play out with Nicki Minaj status as the biggest female rapper on the planet? You can already picture the headlines, “Nicki Minaj dating a reality TV star.” The only difference it would make in this case is that they have 12 years of history together.

Safaree Talks Crying Over Nicki Minaj On TV, Meek Mill Sentence


Was Safaree Samuels crying over Nicki Minaj breakup on Love and Hip Hop?

Safaree shoot his shot at Nicki Minaj this week after her Paper magazine photos were released on social media. On Friday morning, the Love and Hip Hop star did on an interview on The Breakfast Club where he opened up about his comments on Nicki’s photos and also why he was crying on the final episode of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.

“Am goin’ to be honest and am not goin’ lie, am not doing nothing for attention of hating on her like those were some amazing pictures and I use to really want her to take pictures like that for me so you know what am saying so that’s why I was just like wow,” Safaree said. Charlamagne then pressed him on whether or not he wants Nicki Minaj back and he sidesteps the questions and answered, “of course I still care about her.”

Safaree also explained what happened when he abruptly started crying at the end of last season Love and Hip Hop Hollywood. Some folks thought that he was crying over Nicki Minaj while others thought that he was crying because his career was coming to an end. “Let me explain, let me explain what happened,” Safaree said. “With the whole crying thing, and I am glad I can bring some light to it for those who are confused. In that segment I just finished talking about my uncle, my uncle was just killed. That’s where I was at mentally, so I was thinking about that when I was talking about that (Nicki Minaj and leaving LHH). My last week in L.A. was when my uncle was killed, so I was talking about that then it went to the whole leaving thing.”

On the issue of Meek Mill’s sentencing last week, Nicki’s ex-boyfriend said its none of his business. Safaree Samuels currently cast in five reality TV shows including Love and Hip Hop New York. He is also in VH1’s new show Scared Famous. Watch his interview on The Breakfast Club below.

The Love and Hip Hop star blamed Meek Mill for their demised, saying in an interview that Meek went and told her that he, Safaree, cheated on her. The breakup was bitter and both of them never seems to fully get over it. Nicki subsequently released an entire album about, The PinkPrint, about their split. She and Meek have since parted ways and now she is rumored to be dating Nas.

#Safaree AND THE REST OF US need answers to this question sis ?? He ain't holding back tuh-day!! Meanwhile #NickiMinaj is out here responding to #Nas & y'all acting up in her comments ?? #StepIntoTheShadeRoom & respond to #Safaree sis ?

Joe Budden and Girlfriend Cyn Santana Expecting First Child

Congratulations are in order for Joe Budden and his girlfriend Cyn Santana who is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

The Slaughterhouse rapper and the former Love and Hip Hop star have been dating for over a year and now they are taking their relationship to the next level. Joe Budden made the announcement on Instagram on Wednesday night with a poem. Santana also broke the news on Instagram saying, “My biggest blessing… In the name of love. Thank You God!”

Budden came through with a photo of himself and his baby mama wearing all white that he captioned with a heartfelt poem. “I Never. I never knew we’d get here, it’s funny,” he wrote. “I never saw you in that light. Now I never see light without you. I never courted you, an if I did I never acknowledged it. I never had a friend in romance. I never thought that was possible. I never have laughed this much or hard. I never knew you or your energy were so radiant, enigmatic even… but I never knew you. I never could’ve been more deprived.”

There have been rumors floating around since around May of this year claiming that Cyn Santana is pregnant but both she and Budden denied the allegations. Back then the Love and Hip Hop star posted a cryptic message on social media that reads, “Today I become a woman. A whole, complete woman. I am excited beyond words.” Judging from the size of her baby bump, those rumors might very well be true back then.

In November last year, Joe Budden had to respond to more pregnancy rumors on Twitter. “We’re not, she just eats like we are,” the rapper tweeted. The New York emcee will likely make a formal announcement on his Everyday Struggle show tomorrow.

Safaree Responds To Critics About Bad Hairline On Love and Hip Hop

Safaree Samuels says he just had a bad hair day in his response to critics of his hairline on “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” last night.

Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend is getting roasted on social media for his hairline after someone cropped a video from last night’s episode of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood and posted it. In his defense, Safaree admitted that he had a bad hair day but says it wasn’t really his fault, he basically threw his barber under the bus and now everyone wants to know who is his barber.

“Listen man ya’ll killing me about last night’s episode, look I got hair there, see that day I just had a bad hair cut,” Safaree said. “The dude he tried some sh*t that he said was going to look good on TV and it didn’t end up working like that.” This is not the first time that Safaree’s hairline is coming under scrutiny, and certainly isn’t the first time that he is addressing critics. Last year he released a song proclaiming that the reason why he stops wearing hats is because he fixed his hairline.

Lyrics Title : Troubled Waters
Released : 28 January 2009
Music Genre : R`n`B, Hip Hop

You you, you you

I was such a fool for you
Would do anything you asked trough
Only had eyes for you
You grabbed your other fellas in your cruel
Ey

I miss f**ked your games
The things you did
They drove me insane
The way we used to make love
The lights were off
I can’t all the stop
Sleeping alone
And feeling rush

And I’m a fool
For feeling like I really want him back, I want him back
Tell me I’m a ruin
When the love I had
It never last, it never last
I need a bridge
To get me over the troubled water
I need a bridge
To get me over you

Tell me how would I make this transition?
Can’t kick it to the other side
Reminiscences
Think it is well
It’s worth risk a diving
Maybe I would drown, maybe thrown, by the under advise me
It keeps me alive

When I’m going up and deep
No bets, but I got life stress
When it all falls down
I will put it to a task

And I’m a fool
For feeling like I really want him back, I want him back
Tell me I’m a ruin
When the love I had
It never last, it never last

I need a bridge
To get me over the troubled water
I need a bridge
To get me over you

With this meaning ups and downs
Guess I thought to make you work
And now I knew the girls will come alone
Now she is enjoying all my purse
And I still have my pride
Guess I think it’s too deep inside
And too ashamed to come find
That I’m still in love with you

And I’m a fool
For feeling like I really want him back, I want him back
Tell me I’m a ruin
When the love I had
It never last, it never last

I need a bridge
To get me over the troubled water
I need a bridge
To get me over you

Talib Kweli & Styles P – Nine Point Five (feat. Sheek Louch, Jadakiss & Niko Is) (The Seven Album)

[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
As time goes by, an eye for an eye
That’s the best way to keep everybody blind
When the truth is in the building all these lives gon’ die
Cause like my man Chaz Van, eh the vibes don’t lie
Man, get your hands up in the sky, wave ‘em from side to side
Cause I’m twenty years plus, still killin’ it right
This Marco Polo off the Richter, man it’s 9.5
You make the earth quake, shakin’ to death like fault line
Now when I talk about vibe, what I mean is organic
We planting seeds for the trees, we need to breathe on the planet
Indeed we really take the planet for granted
Bulldoze the granite at Standing Rock
We plundered and we wonder why the planet hot
Made in His image, are we worshipping the man or not?
Get an uncomfortable feeling every time I hear “Planet Rock”
Disappointed in the leadership, hand to God
Evidence is more than the images the cameras shot
You follow blind faith it make you seem unclean
But faith in only evidence of things I’ve seen
Cause information make it harder for us to follow discussions
But educated guesses beat wild assumptions
Information lead to knowledge, knowledge lead to wisdom
Wisdom lead to understanding, once you have all that
You start demanding justice
Justice is what love look like in public
I ain’t just writing for it, I’m out here fighting for it

[Hook: NIKO IS]
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five

[Verse 2: Sheek Louch]
Contemplating, I be hating how we coming up short
Filling up court, my skin pigment new black thought
Telling me lies, ain’t nothing about you moving no pies
Fabricating on your Instagram, listen fam you a king
But you carry yourself way too weak
Songs I sing is prophesized, modern day Haile Selassie
Coke bars singing young papi
Now, who want this four-pound of knowledge I shoot?
Still wavy Rolex on, bitch calling me cute
Hands up for some real niggas, when I rise, you rise
Right now I ain’t got no more tries
Mom’s chillin’ watching over me, no more cries

[Verse 3: Jadakiss]
No more tears, right now no more years
And we could throw a million protests, no one cares
‘Cause we just get all out of character and throw some chairs
Eventually they burn us out and tell us “go somewhere”
But the love is too genuine and wholesome here
That’s why the light ain’t too bright but the road look clear
Yea, personally I got my bread as a crook
But once I finish with the work I dip my head in a book
There’s room in the bed, either at the head or the foot
I tell you this, Hip Hop ain’t as dead as it looks
Naw, diversions to cover up the lies
We some real muthafuckas on the rise

[Hook: NIKO IS]
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five
We some real muthafuckas on the rise
Under pressure but over the lies
Stand up, hands up close to the skies
‘Bout to shake the world up on a nine-point-five

[Verse 4: Styles P]
As time goes by, an eye for an eye
You won’t hear a tear drop when a young child cries
Made in God’s image but tell me do God lie?
You’re deceiving, is it racism in the sky?
I believe in God, but [?]
Yea I got my third eye, wish I had my third ear
Seventh sense, I got my sixth sense in third gear
On a highway to hell, learn how to swerve fear
It’s deep talk or street talk
It’s war talk or it’s peace talk
Get the hemp paper, tear the leaf off
Spoke like you woke but you actin’ all sleep dog
The wolves give a fuck about sheep talk
The rich give a fuck about cheap talk
How figuring angles, ways to knock the beast off
This is Satan’s house but we plannin’ to break the lease off
Me and Kweli on the rise
Ghost, but you see some Ali in his eyes
Pressure bust pipes but it still make diamonds
Shining, see the silver lining in the sky
I don’t ride waves cause I’m my own tide
Learn to be peaceful, dealt my own pride
Ego, the feeble will always make the stride to take the strong out
Know hard work, took the long route
And I could do it two more times
Or matter of fact, a few more times
Tell your favorite emcee to make a few more rhymes
Then meet us on the Seven tour
What he feelin’ threatened for?
We gon’ kill ‘em lyrically, what he bring his weapons for?
Hands up, stand up, what you think we reppin’ for?
We some real muthafuckas, don’t you know that?
Lyrically, you gon’ get this picture like a Kodak

Lyrics

Danny Brown – Ain’t It Funny

Verbal couture
Parkour
With the metaphors
The flow house of horror
Dead bolted with metal doors
Grinch bitch
Six sense
With a nose drip
Mind skydive
Sniffing bumps
In the cockpit
Locksmith of Hip Hop
Appraisal the wrist watch
The rocks bout the size
As the teeth in Chris Rock’s mouth
Sock out the mic
Prototype for Adderall
Your work killing fiends
Cause you cut it with Fentanyl
So much coke
Just to sniff need a ski lift
Flip your table over
If you cut it with the bullshit
Nose bleeds red carpets
But it just blend in
Snapping pictures
Feeling my chest being sunk in
Live a fast life
Seen many die slowly
Unhappy when they left
So I try to seize the moment
Funny how it happens
Who ever would imagine
That jokes on you
But Satan the one laughing
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
I can sell honey to a bee
In the fall time
Make trees
Take back they leaves
Octopus in a straight jacket
Savage with bad habits
Broke serving fiends
Got rich became a addict
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Who would ever would imagine
Nose running right now
Could ya pass me a napkin
Managed to somehow
To have the upper advantage
Panic when the drugs are gone
And nobody is answering
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
No way to mask it
A lot became has beens
Rolling up that 100 dollar bill
Till they cash in
Thinks it gone last
Going too fast
Man it’s fucked up
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happen
Upcoming heavy traffic
Say ya need to slow down
Cause you feel yourself crashing
Staring in the devil face
But ya can’t stop laughing
Staring in the devil face
But ya can’t stop laughing
It’s a living nightmare
That most of us might share
Inherited in our blood
It’s why we stuck in the mud
Can’t quit the drug use
Or the alcohol abuse
Even if I wanted to
Tell you what I’m gonna do
I’ma wash away my problems
With this bottle of Henny
Anxiety got the best of me
So popping them Xannies
Might need rehab
But to me that shit pussy
Pray for me y’all
Cause I don’t know what coming to me
Bought a 8 ball of coke
And my nigga on the way
Got 3 hoes with him
And they all tryna play
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Who ever would imagine
Jokes on you
But Satan the one laughing
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it
Ain’t it funny how it happens
Ain’t it

Substantial – Mlk (Dream Big) 2.0 (feat. See King & Matthew Shell) (The Past Is Always Present In The Future Album)

[HOOK]
Back stateside on MLK riding
Low in the whip look like no one’s driving (Repeat 3x)
Whether 395 or 704
Dream big baby stay steady on course

[VERSE 1] (See King)
I grace these peasants with my presence King Martin Luther
The streets with his namesakes the perfect place to find a shooter
A civil rights mover turning left up in a Cougar
Watching the revolution on TVs took by a looter
On fire like H Street, tongue twerks on a break beat
History maker tell spectator to take seat
Enjoy the experience of this social experiment
Send shots at Cyclops; close the eye on the pyramid
I’m too dope it’s no legalizing this lyricist
Father MC and your baby mother’s the surrogate
Hip Hop’s in my heritage, save it from the culture vultures and
The poet poachers, still not a player though I’m dressing like the coaches
Most of us fell victim, to well-placed pitfalls got my dawgs in the system
The chocolate city now suffers from vitiligo
The dream died on that balcony pray it wakes up tomorrow

[VERSE 2] (Substantial)
Mike King like the minister’s initial name
Fighting imprisonment and those with wicked aims
Who administer pain, but we navigate the baddest fate
Like our ancestors did use our head to carry weight
Many chose to move it so now they facing the music
Misguided warriors can’t find their place amongst the movement
So you know the guns stay shooting ‘cause the streets blind niggas
Don’t see their a budding Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Tryna’ eat my dinner like what’s mine is yours…
Really what’s mine is ours, need to combine our power
Why shine for hours we can reflect eternally
For y’all to take me seriously, they’d have to murder me
No respect like the mascot in gold & burgundy
But certainly spitters this ill belong in infirmaries
Still dreaming temporary setbacks be deferring me
But my Corretta know betta she ride for eternity

[VERSE 3]
(See King)
Lost my sight at the podium, blinded by diabetes
A diet with too much sodium still writing this opium
Claim country in crisis gain control of petroleum
Dreamt big as a kid, grew to be a custodian
Mass media frenzy, beamers Benzes and Bentleys
Before we party’d with panthers but now the venue is empty
Still penny pinching while the devil’s Willie lynching
Guess my brother was too poor to pay attention…Overstand!

(Substantial)
Baby soldiers taken over never be an older man
Ain’t playing with a full deck, no one there to hold their hand
So they hold the steel like they wielding the wrath of God
Or hoping for a deal for their skill as a rapping God
….Hoping to give them chills with their catalog
Or hoop dreaming cuz they got skills with a basketball
Once you’re at the mall speaking to and for the people
Will you follow like sheep do or take a stance against evil while we’re…

[HOOK]
Back stateside on MLK riding
Low in the whip look like no one’s driving (Repeat 3x)
Whether 395 or 704
Dream big baby stay steady on course
