Watch J. Cole freestyle over “93 Til Infinity” and “Still Tippin”

Watch J. Cole freestyle over “93 Til Infinity” and “Still Tippin”
Classic beats from Souls of Mischief and Mike Jones got new verses from Cole.

By Jordan Darville

May 12, 2021

With his new album The Off-Season only days away, J. Cole has turned up for a freestyle with the L.A. Leakers. The beats of choice are “93 Till Infinity” by Souls of Mischief, an early ’90s psyche-rap classic, and the brawny Houston sound of Mike Jones’ “Still Tippin.” Unsurprisingly, Cole sounds great on both of them, despite not having freestyled publicly in awhile. “I forgot what them bitches felt like, I ain’t gon’ lie,” Cole says after pummelling the tracks.

The freestyle was almost certainly pre-recorded since Cole is currently quarantining in Rwanda in advance of his debut this Sunday with the country’s national basketball team. The only song we’ve heard so far from The Off-Season is “i n t e r l u d e,” but a short documentary film on the album’s creation was released this week.

Black Eyed Peas – Gone Going Lyrics

Johnny wanna be a big star
Get on stage and play the guitar
Make a little money, buy a fancy car
A big old house and an alligator
Just to match with them alligator shoes
He’s a rich man, so he’s no longer singin’ the blues
He’s singin’ songs about material things
And platinum rings and watches that go bling

But diamonds don’t blink in the dark
He’s a star now but he ain’t singin’ it from the heart
Sooner or later, he’s just gonna fall apart
‘Cause his fans can’t relate to his new found art
He ain’t doin’ what he did from the start
And that’s puttin’ in some feelin’ and thought
He decided to live his life shallow
Passion is love for material and it’s gone

Gone going gone
Everything gone, give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don’t wanna sing
Gone people, all awkward with their things
Gone

You see yourself in the mirror and ya
Feel safe ’cause it looks familiar but ya
Afraid to open up your soul ’cause ya
Don’t really know, don’t really know, who is
The person that’s deep within ’cause you’re content
With just being the name brand man
And ya fail to see that it’s trivial
Insignificant, you addicted to material

I’ve seen your kind before
You’re the type that thinks souls is sold in a store

Packaged up with incense sticks with a vegetarian meals
To you, that’s righteous
You’re fiction like books
You need to go out to life and look
‘Cause, what happens when they take your material
And you already sold ya soul? And it’s

Gone going gone
Everything gone, give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don’t wanna sing
Gone people, all awkward with their things
Gone

You say that time is money and money is time
So you got ya mind on ya money and ya money on ya mind
But what about that crime thatcha did to get paid?
And what about that bid you can’t take it to your grave?

What about those shoes you’re in today?
They’ll be no good
On the bridges you’ve walked along the way

All that money that you got gon’ be gone
That gear that you rock gon’ be gone
The house up on the hill gon’ be gone
The gold fronts on your grill gon’ be gone
The ice on your wrist gon’ be gone
That nice little miss gon’ be gone
That whip that you roll gon’ be gone
And what’s worse is ya soul already gone, and it’s

Gone going gone
Everything gone, give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don’t wanna sing
Gone people, all awkward with their things
Gone

R&B Singer Tank Reveals He’s Going Completely Deaf

R&B legend Tank revealed that he’s going deaf among some other sudden health issues.

The singer revealed the shocking news to his fans via Instagram on Wednesday when he posted a video explaining what’s been happening. While he is getting a ton of support, especially from his core fans, we’re all praying for a speedy recovery as everyone rally to offer prayers and well wishes.

“I’m going completely deaf in my right ear and I’m kind of losing sound in my left,” Tank said in the video before revealing that he has been getting medical attention. “I’m dizzy, can’t walk a straight line. All of this out of nowhere. Don’t know how or why. Seen the doctors and got MRIs and all that good stuff going on.”

In a somber mood, Tank also assured fans that he is by no means giving up despite the seriousness of the situation.

“It still hasn’t given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I’ve set out to be,” he continues. “The goals are still the same — to be great, to be the greatest. And I wanna say that to you, too. No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going, keep pushing.”

Tank says he will be documenting his journey as a means to help others going through similar situations to know they’re not alone and that they can get through it. Meanwhile, the R&B crooner has been getting an overwhelming amount of support not just from fans alone but also from his peers in the industry, including Kevin Hart, his wife Zena Foster, and 112 singer Daron.

“Prayers up king stay strong and stay positive Love u champ,” Kevin Hart wrote.

Soulja Boy Responds To Ex-Girlfriend’s Sexual Battery Lawsuit

Soulja Boy called out his ex-girlfriend in his response to her lawsuit for sexual battery.

While Soulja Boy‘s name has been thrust back into the spotlight with his latest hit, “She Make It Clap,” it’s the recent allegations filed against him on Tuesday, May 11, that have been securing headlines all over the country. The rapper recently broke his silence on the controversy through a string of tweets.

The woman, who did not wish to reveal her identity, filed the lawsuit under the pseudonym, Jane Doe, claiming that she was being abused by the rapper for years, TMZ reported. The complainant said she suffered a miscarriage in 2015 as a result of the severe beatings she received from the rapper.

On Wednesday, May 12, Soulja Boy took to Twitter to respond to the anonymous woman’s claims with several tweets, all insisting that the matter is only being brought to the courts because the complainant is looking for a major payout.

“Will somebody come get they broke a*s daughter,” he fired off on Twitter while adding, “At the end of the day, sometimes us men just pick the wrong females to be with. I’m a legend I can’t date a b*m b*tch that’s out.”

“A man provides everything and all you provide is an attitude? Stop it you gonna get cut off. P***y is everywhere. Simple,” he continued without any denial of the acts he’s now being sought for.

He continued, “At the end of the day you can’t force nobody to be with you. If somebody don’t want you no more let them go don’t try and blackmail them to be with you. That’s evil.”

This tweet, though agreeable, totally contradicts the reports of the woman. The anonymous Jane Doe claimed that she was physically abused multiple times, including when she tried to leave the relationship. But there is one view the two seem to share… that the relationship was toxic.

“How you gone be broke, don’t have a job, no goals, no ambition, nothing going for yourself in life at all. And on top of that toxic? Like come on nobody putting up with that sh*t.”

In another tweet, he added, “Keep it G some of these ho*s just pure toxic.”

It has not been revealed how long the two were in a relationship. However, court filings by Jane Doe hinted that things became rocky in 2015 when she lost her unborn child. This apparently set the pace for other incidents of abuse, such as a 2018 attack that was caught on a night vision camera while the rapper was filming a reality TV series. The female in question mentioned that the incident was aired on the WeTV network in early 2019. She also made reference to a number of other violent attacks and threats, many of which came about through her refusal to have sex.

She is allegedly suing for assault, battery, gender violence, and more.

Kevin Gates – Makin Love Lyrics

Baby don’t mind, I’m headed to the bottom
there go them dick, just watch ’em
Make a left on East Buchanan, pull up in a backyard on Caroline
Me and Lil Ra Ra, we juugin’ the city, at night I lick on her vagina
Shakira ain’t want me to f*ck with Sharita, backdoor Vicky with Dewana
Trappin’ a package, I wrap it, get at me
When Dominique pull up, I serve, he leave happy
Shout out to Spanky, we floodin’ the drought
We on College at IHOP and Cherish can’t stand me
My pants is saggin’ with ’bout 30 bands
Masquerade in New Orleans when I spotted Jasmine
Cedar pull up in Atlanta with Bizzy
That’s Bread Winner business, that’s Boobie and Menace
They land and say “Stand up” and eat niggas chests
RIP Reezy, uptown in my section
Fear of Allah and all praise be to God
Be my only protection whenever I’m steppin’
Callin’ out to the creator
That earnings’ll come from a bundle whatever
In the cell I can see all the pain in his eyes
And I wish I had somethin’ to tell him
And I’m married to my hustle, makin’ love
And ain’t nothin’ in this world could break us up
And I’m married to my hustle, makin’ love

And ain’t nothin’ in this world could break us up
Think about respectin’, everything I said, I meant it
Racin’ modification on the Maserati engine
Pull up on the block, my bad, I’m sorry y’all hatin’
Shittin’ ordinary life, f*ck all of y’all lately
Gazin’ out the sunroof, wonder why she not performin’
This bitch don’t wanna eat my dick, I told his ho don’t bother
Pull over, kick her out the car, won’t even tell her sorry
It’s a long walk back to B.R.O. while in Georgia
Awesome, we almost home
And them niggas you f*ckin’ with don’t do no sparkin’
Don’t do no talkin’, I will not ever see death
Listen carefully, nigga, I’m flawless
Illuminated by the highpower
Enlightened but walk in the darkness
Cast not your pearls to the swine, young nigga
Rememberin’ what I had taught you
I am the way and the truth and the light
And I’ve been up 40 days on a flight
Overcooked dope with a grams complexion
And first as the powder, was white
My oldest son lil’ Tyler
Every time he ’round me he smilin’
And he know his dad’ll turn this bitch to Afghanistan
No problem

Roy Orbison – The Same Street Lyrics

I still live on the same street,that we lived on.
The same old street,where memories were made on.

I shouldn’t stay,why don’t I go?.
Each day hurts a little more.

It won’t be the same street anymore, since you’ve gone.
It won’t be the same street anymore.

Each day I walk alone,where we once walked before.

See all familiar places, where we talked before.

But I can’t run,from memories.
They’re mine and they belong to me.

It won’t be the same street anymore.since you’ve gone.
It won’t be the same street anymore.

Badda General, Liquid & Wayne Marshall Tackles Trafalgar Road Shooting In New Song

The phone conversations between Jamaican-based entertainer ZJ Liquid and US-based deejay Badda General continue with their new track “Current Events.” The new release differs from their previous tracks as a result of a melodic hook from Jamaican Youtuber and reggae artist Wayne Marshall.

Liquid and Badda have been delivering their brand of comedic social commentary for the better part of last year with collaborative singles such as “State of The Union” and “Barrel.” The latter was recently remixed by UK-based dancehall artist Stylo G and Ghanian dancehall superstar Shatta Wale.

While the deejays maintain their usual comedic stance for “Current Events,” the basis of their argument is far from hilarious. The skit sees Badda reaching out to Liquid as he usually does. This time the call is to check if his longtime friend is doing okay, following his review of the daring police takedown of 3 criminals on Trafalgar Road in Kingston on Monday. The two Montegonian natives have been friends for more than two decades, forging their friendship as selectors on the Montego Bay circuit during the late 90s.

Badda and Liquid go line for line as they comment on the actions of the criminals, police, taxi operators caught in the crossfire, as well as the state of Jamaica’s crime problem.

“The Place Hot Streets Crazy Dem yout ya mash works daily / You no hear wa dem do the man a Swallow Field / You No Hear Wa Dem Do The Old Lady,” Marshall questions in the chorus.

Migos Announces New Single Off “Culture III” Drops On Friday

Migos announces new single “Straightenin” off Culture III coming this Friday.

This Friday (May 14) will no doubt be the most festive day of the week as it relates to new music releases. The hip-hop community is under the promise of projects from J. Cole and Kodak Black and a single from returning rapper Nicki Minaj.

Migos has added their name to the list of hot releases coming up on Friday. On Wednesday (May 12), Offset posted the cover art for the song “Straightenin” with the caption revealing the release date, “5/14 midnight.” Takeoff and Quavo made similar posts and received similar feedback from fans excitedly anticipating the new song.

The trio has been teasing the public with snippets of the single for some time, vibing to the song up to last month. The song might be the lead single from the group’s highly awaited upcoming album, Culture III. The full album will be released sometime this year, but the exact date has not yet been revealed.

The album will follow their “Culture II,” project which was done in 2018. Culture II was a double album that consisted of 24 tracks. The album was diverse with features from different artists, including Drake, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Ty Dolla Sign, Gucci Mane, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, and Post Malone. Production work was also done by a variety of collaborators, including Pharrell Williams, Buddah Bless, Metro Boomin, Kanye West, Murda Beatz, and others.

Fans are speculating that “Culture III” will be bigger and better, especially after Migos was featured on DJ Khaled’s album “Khaled Khaled.” Many commented that the group’s part on the song “We Going Crazy” featuring H.E.R left them yearning for more and definitely looking for it in the upcoming album.

Nicki Minaj Flexes Pink Richard Mille In Rolls-Royce Truck Ahead Of 1st IG Live

Nicki Minaj is bent on making an entrance.

The “Super Bass” rapper recently announced her return to the hip hop scene with a promise to release new music come Friday, May 14. Fans are eagerly anticipating the release, which Nicki Minaj has been promoting since the start of the week. Monday was all about the Queen appearing as bare as one can be on IG. On Tuesday, she gave a lesson on how to set a thirst trap, and on Wednesday, Nicki showed just why she is a “Boss A*s B*tch.”

Nicki Minaj posted a video on Instagram cruising in her Rolls-Royce Cullinan and sporting a pink Richard Mille on her wrist. She captioned, “Going live tmrw night @ 11PM EST- it’s the PINK Richard Milleeeee 4 meeeeee. Only 8 in the world. Anyway, be on time tmrw night.”

Fans are speculating that Thursday’s LIVE will be about her return as well as her new release. A snippet of the song can be heard as Minaj rolled up. The “Barbie Tingz” rapper had disclosed a snippet of lyrics from the song in a previous post.

“B**chs act like they want action, heard they want action, b**ch we ain’t duckin no action. I’m bout to give em dat traction, send a distraction- then ima line ’em like FRACTIONS. F R I D A Y,” she wrote.

While Nicki received immense props for stunting in her Rolls Royce, her husband Kenneth Petty picked up some heat after he was spotted chilling in the passenger seat.

“It’s her husband sitting over there like a lil kid for me,” one person commented. Another added, “She should have driven solo my opinion.”

It is safe to say Petty is not really a favorite of Nicki’s Barbz, and many were openly dissatisfied with her decision to marry him. This may be partly because he is a registered sex offender who was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995. He also pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in 2006 and served time in prison.

Petty made headlines when his relationship with Nicki was made public in December 2018. The couple welcomed their first child in September last year, which has possibly led to Nicki’s music and social media hiatus.

Popcaan & The FaNatix Samples Tanya Stephens Classic On “These Streets (Don’t Luv U)”

Popcaan links with The Fanatix and M1llionz on a new track.

The Fanatix returned with a hot new single that twins dancehall with UK drill. The new track, titled “These Streets (Don’t Luv U)”, features dancehall star Popcaan and upcoming UK drill rapper M1llionz. The song’s lyrics feature quite a bit of the Jamaican vernacular, even in sections performed by the UK rapper. This is understandable as M1llionz, who sports a Reggae Boyz jersey throughout the music video, does have Jamaican heritage.

The song samples reggae veteran Tanya Stephens‘ 2006 hit single “These Streets.” Tanya’s vocals are pitched to the tune of Alvin from the Chipmunk, which allows it to be properly layered over the bouncy elements that make up the drill beat. Fanatix paid homage to Stephens in a recent Instagram post. “Big up the legendary @iamtanyastephens for allowing us to sample her classic song “these streets”. This would not be possible without you guys,” they wrote in the caption.

The video for “These Streets”, which has amassed 481,000 views on YouTube in 5 days, was filmed in sections of Kingston and Miami. Unlike Stephens’ version that speaks of a man who is unappreciative of his woman, M1llionz and Popcaan showcase the gritty elements of Jamaica’s streets. Gambling, drugs, wholesales, and corner shops, and gun-toting gangsters are on full display. While it is an aspect of the country that many would rather remain hidden, the video clearly captures the realness of life in the “trenches” and how hard it is for a large percentage of the Jamaican population.

Fans of Popcaan and M1llionz have welcomed the collaboration with Fanatix and are predicting that the track will be a “banger.” One YouTube subscriber commented on the video, saying, “Whoever made the beat big up ur self, the Tanya Stephens sample mawdd,” while another said, “Popcan and millionz this gonna be a vibe.”

“These Streets” is the first single from The Fanatix’s upcoming album. Fans are anxiously awaiting the project, which will be the first for the group.

Woman Who Got $50K Scholarship in Drake’s “God’s Plan” Video Graduate College

Destiny Paris James, who first appeared in Drake’s “God’s Plan” video, is graduating as she shares the joyous occasion of completing her Master’s degree journey with the financial help of the Canadian rapper.

On Wednesday, she shared photos of herself in a white dress complete with a sash draped around her neck and her cap in her hands as she looked off in the distance. James appeared in the 2018 video, which showed Drake surprising her and also further surprising her with a cheque of $50,000 to help her complete her education.

The South Carolina woman is graduating from the University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill Gillings School of Global Public Health with a Master’s Degree in Public Health Behaviour.

At the time of her donation, she was still pursuing undergraduate education at the University of Miami. The donation by Drake covered parts of her undergraduate studies and her Master’s studies.

The now-23-year-old graduated in 2019 with her bachelor’s degree in public health and went on to pursue studies at UNC. She shared that the donation by Drake has helped her to achieve her lifelong goal of being certified in public health.

“Public Health has been a passion of mine since 2016 when my dad passed from stage 4 lung cancer,” she said in an interview to the Shade Room. “Obtaining this degree is something I will always be proud of! The obstacles I was able to overcome fueled my fire and I am so proud to say I am now a graduate of the #1 ranked public school for public health in the country.”

In a post shared on her social media announcing her graduation, she said, “Mama, I mastered it. Daddy, I did it,” in tribute to her father who died of cancer just as she completed her freshman year in Miami. “4 days until I am officially UNC Alum.”

Drake shared his pride at the announcement, responding via a comment – “LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DES,” he wrote, to which Destiny responded, “@champagnepapi [two blue heart emojis] THANK YOUUUU!!”

In a separate interview, James said she never applied for the scholarship from Drake. However, she was at the time applying for financial aid as an undergrad student. Her motivational essay eventually made the rounds to other departments, which explains why it probably reached Drake’s camp. She was eventually invited by the assistant vice president of university advancement to be featured in a video aimed at motivating the school’s alumni. Her reaction of surprise in “God’s Plan” was genuine as she had no idea what the video was about or who would be there, she said in a student newspaper interview.

“This was the surprise the whole time,” Destiny wrote in her 2018 Instagram post, which included photos of herself and the rapper after the video shoot. “Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!’ You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world.”

Claire Rousay’s “A Kind of Promise” video demands your attention

Claire Rousay’s “A Kind of Promise” video demands your attention
Watch the latest visual from the sound artist’s album A Softer Focus.

By David Renshaw

May 12, 2021

Experimental artist Claire Rousay has used field recordings, text-to-speech programs, and many other non-traditional forms in her music so this year’s A Softer Focus, which utilises luxuriant textures and even some melodics, felt like a bold step into the unknown. Though prolific in her output (Rousay has released two EPs and something akin to a greatest hits collection in recent weeks) A Softer Focus is a perfect entry point to her work. At its best, Rousay’s material takes the every day and elevates it into something greater than the sum of its parts. Take “A Kind of Promise,” for example. Use of simple strings evoke an intimacy that feels both melancholy and welcoming at the same time, pulling you in and providing something that feels equally good to either focus in or, or zone out to.

A video for “A Kind of Promise” is premering above. The video is continues the sense of being present in the moment, gently showcasing a series of daily events (A bottle of Corona beer is poured into a glass, Rousay switches on a lamp and draws the blinds) that combine to feel transcendent.

Speaking to The FADER about the track, Rousay said: “‘A Kind Of Promise’ is about slowing down in order to achieve a more concentrated and intentional experience. The track features Lia Kohl (cello) whose ability to listen deeply and respond intentionally is perfectly represented here. This recording, like all the tracks on A Softer Focus, was made in collaboration with visual artist Dani Toral. While she did not directly contribute to this video shoot, her work and methods were in the forefront of my mind the entire time. The video was shot and edited in my home, using the most basic of resources. Once Dani signed off on the final edit, it felt complete.”

Claire George interrogates memory on the striking “Northern Lights”

Claire George interrogates memory on the striking “Northern Lights”
Taken from her forthcoming The Land Beyond the Light.

By Shaad D'Souza

Grandstand

On her new single “Northern Lights,” Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Claire George attempts to reckon with memory. Not just her own specific memory, but the way memory exists entirely — the way it has a tendency to rot and crumble, eventually leaving us with just sketches of what we thought we originally knew. “I wrote ’Northern Lights’ about someone I loved and lost to opioid addiction. I wanted to eternalize the memories we shared before they became distant or distorted, as they do when you retell or revisit them,” she tells The FADER via email. “After they passed, they appeared regularly in my dreams. Waking up I would relive the loss and beg for an alternate reality.”

ADVERTISEMENT

True to that, “Northern Lights” refracts hard-wired, vivid specifics — “azure eyes,” “an old schoolhouse,” “that song” you loved — through haunting, inconsistent spectre: “You were so far gone, hardly recognised you / And now that you’re gone, well I see you all the time.” True to that, the song’s electro-pop production begins hard and distinct before degrading, pinging synths and dubby guitars beginning to obscure the tight drum hits. Altogether, it’s a striking, heartbreaking image.

Crucified – Focus Lyrics

the deficit, environment, a government corrupt
so many things to worry us and tangle our minds up
we know we’re being taken, we know it all too well
we know that something must be done but there’s more to tell

where are you going? what’s your focus?
losing your reason? for a…lie

caught up in the cause, the fight, caught up in the roar
you know that your intentions are right in what you’re fighting for

but in the midst, the heat of it all, don’t forget your drive
we’re hear to do the father’s will our reason to survive

there’s so much going on around us and we must be aware
it’s important that they see our love and that we truly care

oure time for lying dormant while the world is so in need
is over now but don’t forget the purpose of your doing

Junior Jack – Another Thrill (Like This)

[Armada Music]

feat. SESA & Sharon Phillips

Heeeey, I like it like this
I like it like that
I like it like this
(x4)

[Drop]

The music got the healin in the nation
If ya talk us
Fi bring up about the shock ya
Ave to play with the track up
Rinse out the hit with a static motion
Mix up the bass line like a potion

Come by Carribbean with da German
Dash in a little of the Turkish motion
When the dj plays his shit I tell you
It’s not the sound , it’s just the rhythm in you
Know that your brain let it get in control
Do everything that I’m gonna tell ya
And when it’s all over then it’s start again ya’ll
Come on, let’s shake what your mamma gave ya

Heeeey, I like it like this
I like it like that
I like it like this
(x2)

[Drop]

Come on, and shake what your mamma gave ya.

If the music that you love then let me know
Contender does a hula gets on the floor
When the music hits ya, you’ll feel the pain
Only like static running through your brain

Put your hand on a hip, and work your body
Turn up the wind, and roll your belly
Break it down to the beat and clicks
Now move your body like a locomotion
Move round ya neck and rock ya butt
Now drop to the ground, have a heart attack now
And when it’s all over then it’s start again ya’ll
Come on, let’s shake what your mamma gave ya

Heeeey, I like it like this
I like it like that
I like it like this
(x2)

[Drop]

Come on, and shake what your mamma gave ya.
Heeeey.

Julien Jabre – Lost Again

Hear them goes, echoes are a sign
Guess I’m not alone,
Are you?
Vertigos got me high
Got me falling fast down to
I’m not sure without you
Oh, there’s a house, your house
Where you keep all lights on
All night

Baby, lost again
I’m lost again
Baby, lost again
I’m lost again

I feel them clothes, clothing on my mind
I can’t hear them slime
One goes,
Heaven’s for your kind
Then I see the house, their house
Where they keep their lights on
All night

Baby, lost again
I’m lost again
(all night)
Baby, lost again
I’m lost again

[Drop]

Clay Crosse – Be The Word Lyrics

We can talk ’til we’re blue in the face
Words come easy, but to do what we say
Takes the courage of conviction
And a heart of true commitment
We can preach about lovin’ each other
But to reach out to our sisters and brothers
Requires a revelation
Of the Father’s incarnation

CHORUS:
To be the word, love
Be the word, hope
Be the word, made manifest
Be the word, grace
Be the word, faith
Be the word, made flesh

Through the word, all the worlds took their form

Then He stepped out and left his glorious throne
To establish heaven’s kingdom
Though the world would not receive Him
Still He called all the weary and lost
To follow, and to take up His cross
And to go before all nations
As God’s living incarnation

Repeat CHORUS

Yes the word that dwelt among us
Full of grace and full of truth
Now has come to dwell within us
To be giving, serving, living proof

Repeat CHORUS

Thee More Shallows – A History Of Sport Fishing Lyrics

Now that I care
Enough to be
More into you
Than you’re into me

I have to work
Every day
Like you did on me
To get me to stay

And if I knew
What I know now
I’m not so sure

That I’d be around

Working on you
Every day
Like you did on me
To get me to stay

Like you did on me
Like you did on me
To get me to stay
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Gloria Estefan – Natural Woman Lyrics (feat. Carole King)

what you need is a real, real woman tonight
a real woman tonight
someone that does you right
keeps you awake at night, now honey
a real woman tonight, a real woman tonight
one that holds you tight
don’t you put up a fight now, honey
a real woman tonight
you don’t know what’s good for you
and all the girls you had, just had no clue
you need a woman by your side
who can turn on both your body and mind
someone who gives you what your really need

after tonight you’re gonna beg me please
what you need is a real, real woman tonight
a real woman tonight · one that does you right
keeps you awake at night now, honey
a real woman tonight, real woman tonight
one that holds you tight
don’t put a fight up now, honey

a real woman tonight
what a shame you wasted time
make it up and tell me all the right lines
you want a lover who’s in control
and not afraid to love you body and soul

someone who gives you what you really need
after tonight you’re gonna beg me please
what you need is a real, real woman tonight
a real woman tonight
one that does you right
keeps you awake at night now, honey
a real woman tonight, real woman tonight
one that holds you tight
don’t you put up a fight now, honey
a real woman tonight
all you wanna know, gonna show you tonight
gonna give it everything, give it everything
don’t you put up a fight now, honey
real woman, real, real woman

The Joe Budden Podcast Crash And Burn After Firing Rory And Blast Mal

The Joe Budden Podcast might be coming to a permanent end after Joey exploded and fired Rory before blasting Mal.

It’s not business as usual with hosts of The Joe Budden Podcast, and the show may have come to its end following quite an exchange earlier today, May 12. Many believed that after co-hosts Rory and Mal went on strike, the working relationship had been repaired. That definitely doesn’t seem to be the case after Episode 437: “You Want It To Be One Way.”

Joe Budden has already allegedly taken down the episode just an hour after posting it, but in the age of social media, that was enough time for several recordings of the incident to pop up on Twitter.

In one clip, Budden can be heard complaining about contracts, advertisers, and money. At one point, he says: “You bring it, you eat different, I bring it, I eat different. You ni**ers ain’t brought sh*t.”

Joe Budden goes on to say: “Y’all will not continue to treat me this way. Y’all not going to continue to treat these people this way. Y’all take that f$ckin’ dark energy, that arrogance and entitlement somewhere else. I say all of that to say, we gonna do this since Rory feels like he has so many options,” he’s heard saying.

Later on, he adds: “Somehow he still feels he’s running the show. He still feels like he has choices and options. He feels like he’s entitled to more. Rory, you are in breach of your contract, and from this point forward, you are fired! And you’re not welcome back.

A clearly upset Budden goes on to say: “Mal, I’m the person that has to say that. The gall of you to think you are deserving the way that I am.”

Twitter user @TheDarknessDev posted up the alleged heated confrontation.

It didn’t take long for Joe Budden’s former Everyday Struggle co-host Akademiks to jump on the issue and let his fans know that he’d be speaking on the matter. He Tweeted: “See y’all on twitch today at 3 p.m. Classic stream incoming. I promise.”

Just about two months ago, Rory and Mal went on strike following an argument. The crew recently reunited on April 28. It looks like the dream is over, though as Joe Budden acknowledged that the show was over with a tweet early Wednesday morning, writing, “Helluva run. God bless!”

Helluva run!! God bless.

In another tweet, he added: “Friend or not, I’m NEVER funding someone’s sabotage of me, that will NEVER happen… i get far away from the threat…. You can think piece until your face turns blue.”

Mavado Told Fans New Videos Coming As New Song Tops 5 Million Views

Mavado fans can rest easy as he’s promised that new music videos are on the way.

The Gully God called on his fans to give him some time, though, as he gets things in order to produce some more work. Mavado was responding to the news that the lyric video for the track “Not Perfect” has reached five million views on YouTube.

He took to Instagram to thank his fans for their support: “Give thanks to my fans 5 million and counting without a video but yes I’m giving you a couple videos very soon lol don’t vex with me please to see with me ok,” he said on May 10. He posted the message alongside a video of him walking through a street surrounded by loyal fans. It may be a clip from the upcoming video. Bounty Killer and Tanya Stephens used the flame emoji to express their support.

A post shared by David Brooks (@mavadogully)

It’s actually been quite a while since he’s done an official video. In fact, it’s been almost two years. It’s totally understandable, though, as the “Father God” singer has been having a very difficult period. In March, he lost his mother, Elizabeth’ Ms. Pinny’ Gordon, suddenly.

The death rocked him, and he posted a message on Instagram detailing his feelings of loss.

“I’m all alone, can’t trust no one, but I could always put my life in your hands from I was a kid. It was always me and you walking up and down Constant Spring Road. Them days my little sister was just a baby. Them days I always said as a kid, I’m going to buy you the biggest house and the prettiest car when I grow up. l build you the biggest house. I keep my promise mama. I did it and the world will remember us, me and you. Jah know, have never felt like this before. Wow, my best friend gone,” he said at that time.

Not too long after that, his son Dante was sentenced to life in prison for the 2018 murder of Lorenzo Thomas. The 18-year-old was sentenced to 15 years for arson and 20 years for illegal possession of a firearm as well. Despite it all, it seems Mavado is trying to push through and come through for his fans.

Headie One – Edna Medley (Live at the BRIT Awards 2021) Lyrics

[Part I: “Know Better”]

[Intro: Headie One & Newsreader]
Some say it’s a symptom of societal failings–
It is a form of aggressive rap music known as drill
They should know better

[Part II: “Ain’t It Different”]

[Intro: Headie One & Lady Saw]
(Baby, are you up for this?)
Suh, suh, s-s-s-suh
(B-B-B-Baby, are you up for this?)

[Verse 1]
Ain’t it different? (One) I link my ting in LA
But I can’t fly to the States ‘cah I got too much convictions (Jheeze)
Apparently all I talk is prison, but I don’t know no different (No)
‘Cah I was in jail up north, runnin’ another coalition (Turn)
Fresh home, I bought coke and whipped it
I put some roses where my wrist is
You ain’t ever made a birthday cake from Digestive biscuits (Told me turm, ayy)
Will have to take lemon juice to a piss test (Piss test, s-s-s-suh)
Every day I look up to the Lord, give thanks for all this litness (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Come home, fresh out the system, gymnast
Rollin’ with smoke on my jones
Pigs want all the camera on me, not the one from Dipset (One)
I still can’t mix pleasure with business, sorry, princess (Princess)
I come a long way from broke days (Turn, turn)
I got to work and fixed it

[Chorus: Lady Saw & Headie One]
Baby, are you up for this?
I am feeling hot tonight
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah
Baby, are you up for this? (Ain’t it different?)
I am feeling hot tonight (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah (Suh, suh, s-s-s-suh)

[Verse 2: AJ Tracey & Headie One]
Ain’t it different?
Spent like ten years grindin’
Covered in diamonds, never been minin’
Came through, man’s still shinin’
‘Cah I was in Homeford House with the pack
And now I’m in Dubai, limin’
Me and Headz landed abroad, two new kettles, perfect timin’
The new whip’s white on white, peanut butter, rose gold linin’
You can catch me in Central
Car so dumb, when I press this button, it’s gone, I don’t do rentals
Air 1’s fresher than menthol
I don’t wanna get ish lit, but the way that bro grip sticks ain’t gentle
Summer time shootouts, big big loot-outs
Get corn stuck in your dental (Turn, turn, turn, turn)

[Chorus: Lady Saw, Headie One & AJ Tracey]
Baby, are you up for this? (Ain’t it different? Let’s go)
I am feeling hot tonight (Aight, aight-a)
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah (How we comin’? Yeah, yeah)

[Verse 3: Headie One & AJ Tracey]
Oi, Headie, what we sayin’?
Turn, turn, turn
It’s been a tough year (Facts)
But teamwork gets the dream workin’ (On God)
It’s only right that we show love to the key workers
I’m gassed up when I’m leavin’ the booth
And I rep for the kids, I don’t need an excuse
The government say “Eat out to help”
But won’t help Rashford when he’s feedin’ the yutes
What else can the drill yutes rap ’bout (What else?)
Apart from my worst days? (Facts)
You see me on stage but I was in jail three birthdays
Standin’ here at the BRITs, but we ain’t seen as British
We ain’t finished, we got more plaques for the critics

[Part III: “Princess Cuts”]

[Intro: Young T]
Woo, ayy
[Chorus: Young T, Young T & Bugsey]
Got twenty on my wrist, I’m going crazy
Canary princess cuts for my baby
Out the window, I can hear the Old Bailey
Sippin’ LOUIS XIII, I’m with a Casey
I made a wish, I got it, then I made a wish list
Bust case, was no witness
A hundred in a duffle bag, I got a big fish
Shorty, you need assistance

[Verse 1: Headie One, Bugsey & Young T]
My young boy got the stick like Moses with the Israelites (Uh)
Tellin’ them opp boys, “It’s on sight”
They ain’t outside, they stay inside
We can’t party if we can’t get the tray inside (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Shoe cocaine white, teeth Colgate white (Told me turn, ayy)
You know what it gets like, I just gotta step– (Told me turn)
Trackie and my sliders, I got beef that I still don’t let slide (What?)
All those double C’s, I got a Chanel side (What?)
I’m really blowin’ trees in the Middle East (Ayy)
Is you from the Philippines or Vietnamese? (Suh, s-s-s-suh, What?)
I don’t dance, but I can shake a leg (Told me turn)
I one-two step, Billie Jean, Billie Jean (Turn, turn, turn, turn)

[Verse 2: Bugsey, Young T & Headie One]
Heard you want a shoulder you can cry on (Whoop)
Rely on (Ayy), and you hope that really is me
Blow chronic, my rose gold flourish
I hold no solace, sweet wet coochie on me (Turn, turn)
Boasy and my baby gorgeous
A likkle mortgage, I need them flawless
I lick my thumb and I’m runnin’ it through these commas
Louis orders, get me more of this

[Chorus: Young T, Young T & Bugsey]
Got twenty on my wrist, I’m going crazy
Canary princess cuts for my baby
Out the window, I can hear the Old Bailey
Sippin’ LOUIS XIII, I’m with a Casey
I made a wish, I got it, then I made a wish list
Bust case, was no witness
A hundred in a duffle bag, I got a big fish
Shorty, you need assistance
Shorty, you need assistance

[Outro: Headie One]
Steady, lit
