Sherelle, the U.K. artist best known as a DJ and co-founder of the Hooversound label, has dropped her debut single. “160 Down The A406” will feature on an EP of the same name, due on July 6, and can be streamed below.

Speaking about the upcoming EP in a statement, Sherelle said: “160 Down The A406 is a product of wondering what the next stage of my life will be during 2020. The two tracks represent discovery and they mean a lot to me as I feel like I am always searching for the new and unknown. I wanted for my first introduction musically to be different. I feel like I rarely show a softer, emotive side to the world and these tracks are supposed to be warm and forgiving. Something which wasn’t the case in 2020 for me. Although I had gained a lot, I also lost all my income and was feeling super isolated.

Producing for me was a way of dealing with all the anxiety and sadness that I had felt. I also went through a lot of self-discovery of what I truly wanted out of life and asked myself if I was truly happy with things. The outcome of this are two reflective tracks which feel full and fuzzy. They are supposed to make you happy. Like anything I do… I just want people to be happy and dance.”

Migos share new song “Straightenin” and offer Culture III update

Migos share new song “Straightenin” and offer Culture III update
The rap trio shares its first release of 2021.

By David Renshaw

May 14, 2021

Migos have dropped a video for “Straightenin,” their first new song of the year. The Keemotion-directed video catches the Atlanta trio flexing their extensive collection of cars at various Atlanta locales, including the parking lot of a shopping center. Check it out above.

“Straightenin” is set to appear on Migos’ upcoming album Culture III. The album has been in the pipeline since Migos released the second installment in the series back in 2018. Despite a long wait, Migos assured fans the album is still coming during an appearance on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1 show on Thursday.

“We just had came off the tour and we was also doing other records and featuring on songs,” Quavo told the DJ. “So, we just started getting pulled away and just started grinding solo and it was for a good cause. Maybe these records can fit the three, but if it fit one of us, we could go to the moon, and we still going to pull each other, and still bring us to the top, and once we get together and do our records, it’s going to make it just even bigger. It wasn’t no strain on us. We just felt like it wasn’t time yet to put music out. We felt like we was just super grounded, and working, and always on the moon. We had to come back to Atlanta to get to work.”

Since the release of Culture II all three Migos, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff, have released solo albums. Last year Migos shared “Need It” plus “Give No Fxk” (with Young Thug and Travis Scott), “Taco Tuesday,” and “Racks 2 Skinny.”

DJ Envy Announces His Wife Gia Casey’s Mother Has Died

DJ Envy and his wife Gia, along with their extended family, have been plunged into mourning following the death of Gia’s mother, Norma Grante.

DJ Envy announced the sad news on Wednesday (May 5) in a social media post. While the DJ and radio host did not reveal Grante’s cause of death, the sadness in his Instagram post could be felt by fans and followers, who flooded the comment section with condolences to the family.

DJ Envy shared three photos, each displaying a young and pleasant version of his mother-in-law. In the first photo, she clenches her son-in-law’s arm. In the second, they embrace each other in a simple pose, and the final photo displays his wife as a young child and Grante as a younger woman.

“This is extremely difficult for me to write,” he said in the caption.

The DJ also questioned, “How do you tell your wife that everything is going to be alright, when her best friend is no longer here….?”

Envy, whose real name is RaaShaun Casey, noted how he received the sad news and recalled how supportive his mother-in-law law was when he chose his career as a DJ.

“We were supposed to be on an island right now but just hours before we boarded, we got the worst call imaginable….I tell the story all the time about me choosing ‘Dj’ing as my career…. everybody laughed and thought I was crazy, but not Gia’s mom….Norma said, ‘Do what makes you happy & f*** everybody else. If there’s anything you need, just come to me,’” he recalled.

Listen to a new FADER Mix by Mr. JazziQ

Listen to a new FADER Mix by Mr. JazziQ
With his 37-minute mix, the Johannesburg-based producer and DJ wants to bring Amapiano to the masses.

By Sajae Elder

April 22, 2021

The longstanding FADER Mix series presents new, exclusive DJ mixes from our favorite artists and producers.

ADVERTISEMENT

As one half of JazziDisciples, Johannesburg-based producer and DJ Mr. JazziQ is considered one of the pioneers of Amapiano, a blend of deep house, jazz, and kwaito, another South African dance genre that emerged in the 1990s. Slower and more subdued than the Afrobeats and Afropop sound of West Africa, Amapiano’s groove oscillates between laid back and mid-tempo, with booming basslines, plenty of synths, and soulful piano or flute melodies. Despite being around since 2012, it saw a spike in popularity in 2020. “It really blew up over the past couple of years here,” JazziQ explained. “The genre is growing and I want to take it to dancefloors everywhere.” For his FADER Mix, JazziQ blends the best of the genre, including established names and emerging talent in just under 37 minutes.

Listen below — and read on for a short Q&A with the producer.

The FADER · FADER Mix: Mr. JazziQ

Tracklist:

1. Mr Jazziq & Kabza de Small -Untitled
2. Mr Jazziq & Kabza De Small – Untitled
3. Mr JazziQ -PWTE ft Soul revolver & Mellow & Sleazy
4. Nutty Cyber – Middle East
5. Mr JazziQ – Woza ft Kabza De Small, Lady Du & Boohle
6. Kabza De Small & Mr JazziQ – Le Tin ft Reece Madlisa & Zuma
7. Mr JazziQ – Nomayini ft Boohle, Mellow & Sleazy

The FADER: How would you say Amapiano started to develop as a genre separate from South African House and kwaito?

ADVERTISEMENT

Well, it’s this combination of different South African sounds: Kwaito, deep house, jazz. There are chords, strong melodies, chants. Initially, we started with instrumentals and from there added more melodies, chords, and bouncy basslines. The next step was the chants which are also quite popular in house music. The real separation came when artists started doing some proper writing of lyrics on the beats we were making. That was about the point that it was clear-cut that this is a whole other genre that can stand on its own.

I think the things we sing about also set it apart from house, as [Amapiano] is so embedded in township culture up here in the North. Take for example Kabza and Maphorisa writing about Thembinkosi Lorch, one of the most popular soccer players from Johannesburg’s Orlando Pirates. My track “Sithi Sithi” is local slang for “I am saying this, now I am saying that,” which is a popular expression here. Another example is Musa Keys’ track “Vula Mlolo” which talks about the negotiations here between the families of two people getting married. Everything is very rooted in our culture and that makes it very real, honest, and authentic.

Talk to me about your upcoming album, Party With The English.

The album has been a lot of fun to make. It was initially meant to be a 5 track EP but we ended up with the full album and even ended up dropping out some tracks. Some of it was during the hard lockdown we had over Christmas when we couldn’t travel and do shows. The album has some great features from artists who are at the top of their game in representing the genre like Kabza da Small, Lady Du, and Boohle, but also newcomers — some of whom are going to be signed to my label Black is Brown.

Which track stands out in this mix for you?

“Woza” feat. Lady Du, Boohle and Kabza Da Small. This was the first single from my album! We dropped it a couple of weeks ago and people have connected so much with it. I got an awesome video today from a bunch of people dancing to the track on a crossing outside the White House in DC.

What are some of your favorite memories from the early days of Amapiano as a genre and where do you see it going next?

We started playing in taverns and bars to a community of a maximum of 80 people in my township of Alexandra in Johannesburg. Seeing people’s love for this new sound is definitely my favorite memory. We were hustling those small shows and a big crowd was considered El Dorado Park in Soweto. At the time there were just a few of us: Kabza Da Small, Luu Ninelven, Gaba Cannal. Africans all over the continent are loving the genre but now we need to take it to the rest of the world and invite everyone to join the ‘yanos’ fever.

You can pre-order Party With The English here.

DJ Khaled’s ‘Khaled Khaled’ Album Features All-Star Dancehall Lineup, Koffee, Bounty Killer & More

DJ Khaled has assembled a star-studded dancehall lineup for his new album with Koffee, Bounty Killer, Capleton, Buju Banton, Barrington Levy, and other artists. The album called Khaled Khaled” is almost ready at 98% done, according to the legendary music producer who is in Jamaica.

DJ Khaled has always been a fan of and includes reggae and dancehall acts in his projects, but this might be the first time that he is featuring so many artists on his album. What’s even more unique about the new project is that, unlike other overseas producers/ artists who worked with Jamaican acts, Khaled flew down to Jamaica. He also brought his crew to record and shoot music videos in Jamaica, so money from the album production is flowing directly into the island.

The new album is Khaled’s 12th studio album, and among those who are going to be featured are Migos and H.E.R. They are also in Jamaica for a week as they wrap up filming. Several other A-listers are said to be on the album, which includes Post Malone and Drake, who are on the first two tracks of the album. The tracks -“Popstar” and “Greece” have already been released. The songs mark the reunion of Drake and DJ Khaled, who last worked together in 2010.

Both songs debuted at No. 8 and No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively, marking the Canadian rapper’s 39th and 40th Hot 100 top ten song entries- achieving a milestone as it broke Madonna’s 18-year record.

In the U.S, “Greece was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling one million-plus copies while “Popstar” was certified 2x platinum-selling more than two (2) million copies.

DJ Khaled also has released a trailer for a “Reggae-tinged” version of the song “Popstar” with a video featuring Khaled and Spanish actor and filmmaker from Speed Kills and Ibiza– Jordi Molla. The music for the trail is Sizzla’s “Rise To The Occasion.”

The music producer has collaborated on several past projects with dancehall artists, including the 2020 release of “Holy Mountain” featuring Buju Banton, Sizzla, Mavado, and 070 Shake. The video for the song was shot in Jamaica with all of the artists along with Khaled together.

The dancehall acts that Khaled has enlisted for his 12th studio album so far are all legendary acts within the industry. He said, “working on something special I never forget where I come from. JAH LIV!”

Several of the artists re-shared images and videos of themselves with Khaled as fans shared their hopes for great music. Barrington Levy, on his official Instagram account, said, “In the studio w/the Best. Good vibes and much love always. Heat coming your way, be on the lookout…Just wait for it it’s going to be grande.”

A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled)

He also shared photos of himself with DJ Khaled on the Sandals-owned luxury property Villa Rio Chico where Khaled and his family and film crew are all staying. “wait for it, it’s going to be epic…”

The artist is known for his hit singles like “Black Roses”, “Too Experienced’, ‘Living Dangerously” featuring Bounty Killer, “Collie Weed”- a homage to the practice of smoking marijuana, “Here I Come,” “Shine Eye Girl,” and “Ah Yah We Deh” just to name a few of his hits.

Fans are expecting heavy dancehall and reggae influence on the album, even as DJ Khaled says he’s working on getting the album ready for release when he leaves Jamaica. He hasn’t shared more details on the names of the upcoming songs and how the collaborations will be paired.

In a video, DJ Khaled commented on the star-studded lineup as he praised both Levy and King Shango while they were on set. “HISTORY!!!” he wrote on his official Instagram account. “Listen, legendary Barrington Levy..legendary, legendary, legendary, Barrington Levy, Bounty, Buju, Fireman (Capleton), they don’t just come out for anybody.”

In other posts, Khaled emphasized that his twelfth album will be a “very special album.” The Album comes on the heels of his 11th album named “Father of Asahd,” named after his son. The 12th album “Khaled Khaled” is indeed special for DJ Khaled as it is named after his real name – Khaled Mohamed Khaled.

Khaled’s coming of age in the world of music is quite fascinating as he once told Larry King in an interview that he was a devout Muslim. That, however, hasn’t stopped him from making positive, feel-good music. Over the years, he has been accused of being a culture vulture to Jamaican music. However, if you look closely, you might be able to see that the reason he says that the album is special because it is paying homage to some of the people and the genres of music that helped him to cement his foot in music.

This includes the foundational figures in Dancehall who brought the DJ down to perform at shows in Jamaica. He would often visit the island and link up with the likes of Bounty Killer as he played sets at street dances in the inner cities of Jamaica.

His stint as a DJ also saw him paying homage to dancehall and reggae music on his shows in the 1990s- on Mix 96 and later Jamz 99in Miami where he played regular rotations of Dancehall and Reggae Music as well at Madhouse club and others in the South Florida area in the early 2000s.

Khaled was also in Jamaica deejaying at several events on the island, including Summer Jam in 2000. For some old enough to know the musical link, it’s acknowledged even by Khaled that his talent was appreciated and recognized in Jamaica long before it was in other parts of the United States and the world.

It was indeed the stepping stone he needed to make a mark in the hip hop/ rap world, which was just becoming introduced to the act of “toasting” or deejaying- a Jamaican phenomenon copied and replicated in hip hop parties.

DJ Khaled was also featured on Bounty Killer’s album “Ghetto Dictionary: Art of War” released in 2002 on the single “Bring the War On” featuring DJ Kalid [sic] as he was then known. His connection to dancehall goes deep with his many dubplates of dancehall finest even as they too were striving to make a name for themselves.

He has featured in the Jamaican movie Shotta and had signed Mavado to his ‘We The Best’ Label following advice from Bounty Killer. He has also maintained a close friendship with Buju Banton, even visiting the reggae star while he was incarcerated for drugs dealing in the United States and coming to visit Buju after he was released as he introduced his children to Buju.

Nobody goes as hard when it comes to their album as DJ Khaled, but especially when it comes to Jamaica, the DJ shares a special relationship with the island, as many are coming to acknowledge. Hopefully, the latest album will cause the claim that he is a culture vulture to diffuse and also cause him to open new doors for some younger Jamaican artists to enter the mainstream hip hop and rap industry.

DJ Khaled’s album Khaled Khaled is slated for release by summer 2021.

Snoop Dogg and TIDAL are joining forces with Facebook’s Oculus for a virtual DJ event.

While we all hope that the effects and restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic are slowly coming to an end, there is no definite conclusion in sight. This means that artists are continuing to find new and innovative ways to connect with fans and provide some unconventional entertainment during these difficult times. In collaboration with TIDAL and Oculus, Snoop Dogg will be doing just that by performing a virtual DJ set under the name DJ Snoopadelic on Friday, February 19th. TIDAL announced the event on Twitter writing, “DJ SNOOPADELIC live set on TIDAL and @oculus. February 19th. Be there.”

The event can be accessed through the Venues app and promises to provide a “live, immersive, and intimate” VR performance, airing live from Los Angeles. Snoop has kept plenty busy throughout the last year despite the constraints of the pandemic, proving once again that he is one of the most relevant and versatile artists out there. The West Coast rap icon provided flawless commentary for the Jake Paul and Nate Robinson fight back in November, leading to job offers for him to commentate for nearly every sport. He also teamed up with long-time collaborator Martha Stewart on Super Bowl Sunday this month to co-host the 2021 Puppy Bowl prior to the game.

In addition to his many separate entertainment endeavors, Snoop continues to keep his hand in music, going head to head with DMX in a VERZUZ battle back in July and reminding the whole world how many classic hip hop hits he has contributed to the lexicon during his impressive career.

While new rappers seem to be popping up every day and the OGs seem to be fading rapidly, Snoop continues to stay as fresh and entertaining as ever, and there is no sign of him slowing down any time soon.

Tee Grizzley – Late Night Calls Lyrics

(Banger, banger)
Ha, ha
I got a call last night
I got a call last night
(DJ on the beat so it’s a banger)
Man, hey

I got a call last night (Hello)
3 AM I know somethin’ ain’t right (What?)
Say my brother got caught with a pipe (f*ck)
f*ck you mean he got caught with a pipe (What happened?)
Ain’t gon’ lie that shit killed me inside (Swear)
But I’m happy that he still alive (Thank God)
‘Cause when I get calls at three in the mornin’
They tellin’ me somebody died (Damn)
I’m like, "Brodie, I told you to chill"
You know that street shit, it’s not what it is
When you on parole, why you ain’t at the crib?
Man, get off that shit, nigga, we gotta live (Nigga, we gotta live)
My nigga, you just got a deal (You just got it)
Momma just got back on appeal (We all here now)
We ran the streets, turned up in the trenches
All that, now it’s time to be mean (And we did that shit)

I swear after two in the mornin’ (After two)
My phone is on DND (Don’t call me)
‘Cause I got some calls late nights (Hello)
And I couldn’t go back to sleep (Damn)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even eat (f*ck)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even think (Man)

I’m like, "Hello," "this Tee?" "yeah"
"Damn, such-and-such just got locked up"
I’m like, "Hello," "this Tee?" "yeah"
"Damn, such-and-such just got popped up"
I’m like, "what happened?" (What the f*ck happened?)
How you know that? (How you know that?)
Who was they with? (f*ck was they with?)
Where was they at? (Where the f*ck was they at?)

Ayy, my pop was a real nigga (The realest)
Real boss, real shot caller (For sure that)
I had to get rid of his phone (Had to)
‘Cause motherf*ckers wouldn’t stop callin’ (Had to cut the bitch off)

One night Sugar called me (What up, dawg?)
Thought it was my pops callin’ (Oh, this Sug’?)
He couldn’t even talk through the tears (What happened?)
My stomach had knots ballin’ (Huh?)
He said, "Nigga, your daddy got shot" (What?)
"Police won’t give us no information" (f*ck outta here)
"And they say he the only one hit" (How?)
"And you know what that mean when they tape it" (What?)
Man they told me my nigga ain’t make it (Damn)
After that I start cryin’ and prayin’
Me and bro life stay strapped, stay dangerous
We gon’ be good he our guardian angel ([?] did that shit)

I swear after two in the mornin’ (After two)
My phone is on DND (Don’t call me)
‘Cause I got some calls late nights (Hello)
And I couldn’t go back to sleep (Damn)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even eat (f*ck)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even think (Man)

I’m like, "Hello," "this Tee?" "yeah"
"Damn, such-and-such just got locked up"
I’m like, "Hello," "this Tee?" "yeah"
"Damn, such-and-such just got popped up"
I’m like, "what happened?" (What the f*ck happened?)
How you know that? (How you know that?)
Who was they with? (f*ck was they with?)
Where was they at? (Where the f*ck was they at?)

I swear after two in the mornin’ (After two)
My phone is on DND (Don’t call me)
‘Cause I got some calls late nights (Hello)
And I couldn’t go back to sleep (Damn)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even eat (f*ck)
And I got some calls late nights (Hello)
The next day I couldn’t even think (Man)

Lil’ Durk – Finesse Out The Gang Way Lyrics (feat. Lil Baby)

[Intro:]
(DJ on the beat so it’s a banger)
(Hahahahaha)

[Lil Durk:]
I came from nothin’, I had to go get it
I had to finesse out the gang way (Gang way)
I done did everything for the niggas that I love
Who stuck in the chain gang (Chain gang)
Shit be so real, I’m steady watchin’ all the niggas who yellin’ out, "Gang, gang" (Gang, gang)
Shit be so different, I’m watchin’ the niggas who busy but yellin’ out, "Bang, bang" (Bang, bang)
Roll up a blunt on that Pluto
Used to be deep now I’m riding ’round uno
I know some niggas who hustlin’ but quit ’cause they was doin’ this shit for too long
I remember niggas feelin’ like brothers but now this shit feel like a group home
And I had told ’em I love ’em so much to me it felt you can’t do wrong
I was trappin’ out inside of my granny crib, I was servin’ with two phones
I remember tellin’ judges, "Don’t know where the Patek is", now it’s two-tone

The money make the world spin (Spin, oh)
The money make the girls grin (Grin, oh)
Been rapper since 2010 (Ten, oh)
Who would ever thought that I’d win? (Win, oh)

Ask ’em why they sellin’ food stamp
I done grabbed a Urus on some cool shit
I’ma get it on my own, when I felt alone
I remember feelin’ useless
I remember servin’ to the cool kids
Twin got a.30, like a pool stick
Why you think the murders turn to news clip
When a nigga die, when his family cry
They’ll swear to God that he ain’t do shit
I remember niggas bein’ goofy
Spendin’ their last money on the Gucci
He just got fly just to get in some coochie
Went to jail, ride around with a goofy
I can actually say I’m feelin’ like money
I remember riding ’round with the hunnids
Had twin with me ridin’ with hunnids
Gucci bag, double fifty, one hunnids
Super motivated, come from a dungeon
Like, why you call a dungeon the trenches?
It don’t matter ’cause I’m bringin’ my niggas
Why you fall out with me just for attention?

Niggas die when they pop up in my mentions
Had the realest nigga tear you [?]
Took a Perc’ and it got me in my feelings (Got me in my feelings)

The money make the world spin (Spin, oh)
The money make the girls grin (Grin, oh)
Been rapper since 2010 (Ten, oh)
Who would ever thought that I’d win? (Win, oh)
The money make the world spin (Spin, oh)
The money make the girls grin (Grin, oh)
Been rapper since 2010 (Ten, oh)
Who would ever thought that I’d win? (Win, oh)

[Lil Baby:]
Man I’ve been trappin’ since 2007
My momma was strugglin’, I had to help
From juvenile to the penitentiary, I’m better
I’m happy to say I got it together
Fifty-three percent of these niggas feminine
I am not a ganster I am a gentleman
We the ones that handle murders like business
Postin’ money on the ‘Gram, I invented that
I done came a long way from the middleman
I got [?] Cullinan
I done gave a thousand bowls to my brother them
Shit get serious when them bodies start comin’ up
I put the key on the Urus and diggin’ now
Told my baby mama we need a bigger house
I’m too real, cut this shit out and figure out
Got one foot in the streets, tryna pull it out
Keep it lowkey, she ain’t runnin’ her mouth (Mouth)
She don’t ever want me to pull out
I run it up to [?] from my house
I’m rockin’ clothes I can’t even pronounce
f*ck the pandemic, I love me a drought
I ran it up in this motherf*cker
Three hunnid shots, that’s enough in this motherf*cker
Only The Family, it’s us in this motherf*cker, gang shit

[Lil Durk:]
The money make the world spin (Spin, oh)

Tee Grizzley – Gave That Back Lyrics (feat. Baby Grizzley)

[Tee Grizzley:]
Ah
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ah
DJ on the beat so it’s a banger

I ain’t goin’ back and forth with niggas ‘less it’s on the track
Me and broski twinnin’, winnin’, rappin’, still’ll twist your cap (Grrah)
Gave my momma all that time, she did ten and gave that back
Now your kids rich, Mar Mar blew eighty stacks and made that back

[Baby Grizzley:]
Ayy, my nigga Tee the sergeant (Ayy), neighborhood locksmith (Ayy)
Uber in whip caves, five stars, get a top lift
If I gotta stand tall, I’ma drop shit
Westside, thirty on the Weston, call it Glocksmith (Boom)

[Tee Grizzley:]
We come from that cloth that they don’t make no more (They don’t)
Text your bitch like, "Pop out," she text back, you made her stay at home (This ho ass)
Baby Grizz and Momma Grizzley back, they let them gangsters home (They here)
Ridin’ in that SRT Demon but them angels close, I ain’t alone

[Baby Grizzley:]
Say the clip full, brodie (Rrah), we gon’ spray that doe
Opp know ain’t shit they can do, they ain’t gon’ save that doe (That’s it)
Eat me in a Rolls-Royce, I just might make a ho
Told that lil’ bitch to bring her friends, I don’t date alone

[Tee Grizzley:]
Ayy, you strapped when your niggas with you? (What?)
I got that Drac alone
Told the DJ he a rat, when we in here don’t play that song
All my niggas up in bank, imagine what I make alone
Come and drop a nigga whole village, this shit Game of Thrones

[Baby Grizzley:]
Pull up in them Lamb’ trucks trippin’, got like eight poles
Drums in this bitch, full crowd, it’s a Drac show
Say them boys ride, .308, turn his brakes on
Let my O.G. out, can’t wait to put my nigga Blaze on
Asked bro before I got locked, I was twenty up (No cap, nigga)
Ayy, now it’s eight hunnid and twenty plus
All shops, thirty pokin’, givin’ twenty up
Go get me a water, bitch I’m rollin’ like a twenty bud

[Tee Grizzley:]
Ayy, at the Waldorf eatin’ on the roof, I bring your ho up here (Come here)
On the jet I’m wearin’, red lights stop but she gon’ go up here (She goin’)
All my shooters smart but if you play, they gon’ act slow up here (What?)
Call my label up like, "Bring that bag and baby bro in there" (Baby Grizz)
Damn, I wish you was here to see this shit we did, pops (R.I.P.)
I don’t wanna drive the Lamb’ today, bring me that Benz block (Ayy yo, pull up)
You can look up all our paperwork, solid as a rock (Ten toes)
And my pistols like Snoop, six-four, switches on them Glocks (Brr)

I ain’t goin’ back and forth with niggas ‘less it’s on the track
Me and broski twinnin’, winnin’, rappin’, still’ll twist your cap
Gave my momma all that time, she did ten and gave that back
Now your kids rich, Mar Mar blew eighty stacks and made that back

10 songs you need in your life

10 songs you need in your life
Tracks we love, in no particular order.

By Jordan Darville

January 14, 2021

Each week, The FADER staff rounds up the songs we can’t get enough of. Here they are, in no particular order.

“One Step Closer” — Linkin Park (100 gecs Reanimation)

The raw, messy emotion of Linkin Park’s breakout song “One Step Closer” is a natural fit for the cranked-to-11 pop grist mill that is 100 gecs. Hearing their reverent take on the song, a remix infused with sprinkling rave synths and death metal grunts, you’re reminded of how Linkin Park set the stage for bands like the gecs.

“Night” — Planet 1999 (DJ lostboi remix)

A recurring motif of DJ lostboi’s music is the sound of a tape rewinding; the machine’s whirring heightens the feeling of cycling back through memory. There’s an almost voyeuristic vibe to the remix’s production, where vocals are processed into balmy atmospheres as an emo guitar fingerpicks in the distance. lostboi sounds like she’s plugged into someone’s brain trying to tap into a recollection of the original song, but it’s been clouded by the slow-motion fireworks of other synapses.

“Reason To Believe” — Vagabon feat. Courtney Barnett

Being wrapped around someone’s pinkie finger can be both exhilarating and devastating. This Americana ballad from Vagabon and Courtney Barnett captures that particular strain of exhaustion without losing appreciation for its own beating heart.

“BIPP” — SOPHIE (Autechre remix)

A press release tells us that when SOPHIE dropped her dance floor-shattering “BIPP,” in 2015, she rejected the idea of any remix unless Autechre was behind it. Six years later, the Warp-signed experimental legends have delivered. The original hyperactive, puppy-lovesick atmosphere is dimmed considerably: the drums are massive, yet lumber like they’ve been laced with nightshade, while the vocals are crisp and center stage, like one might hear in a top 40 playlist. It’s a dystopian banger that lets you cuddle up to it.

“Believer” — Smerz

Back in 2018, Smerz debuted with the mixtape Have Fun, a noisy sample collage refracted a similar wry, muddy lens as Hype Williams. The title track of their upcoming debut album doubles down on the Norwegian duo’s appreciation for pop without losing its experimental elements — think Billie Eilish, but more Björk.

“Hardline” — Julien Baker

Baker has the kind voice that stays in your ear long after the sound has passed through it: weighty with a cutting message, resonating like it traveled over a mountain to get to you. “Hardline” has instrumentation to match, with one of the biggest choruses of the indie singer-songwriter’s career. It’s post-rock, it’s shoegaze, it’s pure catharsis.

“CLOSER TO THE FIRE” — B L A C K I E

His long-awaited comeback arrived last year, but Houston noise-rapper B L A C K I E isn’t ready to take his foot off of America’s neck just yet. “CLOSER TO THE FIRE” opens his new album FACE THE DARKNESS II with a flurry of saxophone noise, vengeful samples, and righteous fury.

“Use Somebody” (Kings of Leon Cover) — dvsn

Miley Cyrus gets all the attention for her covers, but with just one song dvsn have made a convincing play for her throne. The duo’s upcoming album Amusing Her Feelings probably doesn’t consist of dvsn turning insufferable mid-noughties hits into this kind of brooding, sleek bedroom music, but I’m looking forward to it nonetheless.

“Chemtrails Over The Country Club” — Lana Del Rey

Listen, I wasn’t thrilled with Lana’s weirdly defensive statement about her album cover either, but let’s not pretend that she doesn’t know how to write a song. Though its title makes me think of the restless suburban moms who read Goop and follow QAnon, “Chemtrails” is a collection of quiet elements combining to burst with life and a passion that’s no pseudoscience or conspiracy.

“The Other Side” — Jazmine Sullivan

We don’t usually put an artist in the Songs You Need playlist two weeks in a row, but the new Jazmine Sullivan project is just that good. “The Other Side” neatly captures the musical skill and narrative heft that makes Heaux Tales so excellent: the song’s narrator despairs at her economic plight, and dreams of glamourous life reflected back at her by celebrities on Instagram and reality TV shows. But a literal reading of the lyrics doesn’t do justice to the pure yearning conveyed in Sullivan’s vocal performance and her swelling instrumentation.

Listen to a new FADER Mix by Khalil

The Brooklyn-based DJ drops of a 2.5 hour mix that explores the different sounds of the African diaspora.

The longstanding FADER Mix series presents new, exclusive DJ mixes from our favorite artists and producers.

In early February, just ahead of the first installment of his party, Jerk and Suya, Brooklyn-based DJ Khalil shared a video clip to his Instagram that was equal parts comedy and education. In it, he broke down the connective tissue between cultures of West Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean as a way to emphasize how Black people over centuries have not only maintained African traditions, but how they have added onto them. Most parties with themes that are based around unifying and mixing cultures tend to let the music do the work for them. Khalil is one of the best New York City’s nightlife has to offer in terms of music selection, but with that presentation, it also underscored that his motivation for Jerk & Suya (and other parties of his like the West Indian-focused Tingz) transcends music. Music is simply a tool for him to bridge the gaps between Black people on a global scale.

So it’s fitting that in his new FADER Mix which is out today, Khalil spent a whopping 2.5 hours displaying just how connected those cultures are. And by doing so, he proposes what nightlife could sound like if this happened with more regularity, Throughout the mix, Khalil offers up dembow, dancehall, soca, afrobeats, and more. What’s also special here is that Khalil taps into his Jamaican heritage and tradition of DJing by mcing throughout the mix, adding context to every pivot he makes. Over email, Khalil shared what went into the thinking of the mix, and why connecting each corner of the African Diaspora is a top priority for him right now. Listen to the mix below.

The FADER: Very early on in your mix, it’s clear that you are someone who DJs at a very particular type of party. Throughout it, your energy and the context that you give tracks before playing them makes me feel like I’m experiencing the closest thing to the club that I’ll get for some time. Was your intention to make it feel like a live experience?

Khalil: I actually DJ various kinds of parties. I don’t like doing the same things over and over and I like to challenge myself. My goal as a DJ from the start of my career was to be able to play for any crowd, any style and I pride myself in my ability to do that. BUT I would have to say my specialty and what I am most known for would have to be anything around a Caribbean, West African, and hip-hop/R&B vibe. In terms of my energy & style of mcing on the mix, initially I wasn’t trying to duplicate a live club experience, but that’s just how I automatically DJ. I’m Caribbean and I grew up in East Flatbush and then Canarsie — two extremely Caribbean neighborhoods in Brooklyn. DJ’s were always playing out in the street or people were always blasting a live recording of a fete or bashment. So, from young I always attached high energy mcing with DJing.

As a DJ, what is your top priority when you’re playing live?

When I’m playing live my top priority is to grab the crowd’s attention and be able to engage with them. I feel like my job as a DJ is to make sure the people that come to see me play let loose, forget about their problems, and leave saying they had a great time. A DJ’s job is to serve the people. If someone took time out of their day to come see you then you should give them your ALL when you’re performing. In order for me to get into a zone where I can be at that high level of zen, focus, and performance I have to engage the crowd quickly. That’s also where good mcing comes in handy — it’s almost a cheat code to do just that. DJ’ing to me is an exchange. When you give the crowd vibes they give vibes right back to you and it builds and builds until it’s at a point where the two entities basically become one. It’s deadass a spiritual interaction.

Your mix’s mission is to span the whole of the African diaspora — or, at least, cover as much ground as possible within 2.5 hours. There’s dembow, afrobeats, soca, dancehall, and more. Why’d you take this approach?

Firstly I just really love music and there is so much good music out there that people never tap into because they are stuck in a box. Like I don’t care where it’s from or when it was made. If it’s good music I will play it. A huge part of that comes from my personal background. I’m a blend of West Indian and, to a lesser extent, Latin influences. Also the areas of Brooklyn in which I grew up in East Flatbush and Canarsie are Caribbean melting pots so I grew up hearing music from all over the Caribbean and my parents played everything. Caribbean DJs and Jamaican DJs in particular are typically open format DJs with unexpected and eccentric song selections.

We’re in a time where people are trying to define themselves — Black people in particular and we all know to some degree or another that not everything we have been told about who we are is true. I think what’s happening right now culturally and musically in the diaspora is something we’re seeing for the first time and it needs to be highlighted more. We’re starting to blend together and learn more about each other. It’s the first step to a long road of things that need correction but it’s a start.

ADVERTISEMENT

Would you say the reasons for making this mix are the same reasons for you throwing parties like Jerk and Suya, which makes a point to bring West Indian and West African cultures together?

Yes. It’s the same exact reason. The idea for Jerk & Suya was firstly inspired by another party I have called “Tingz,” which is a strictly hardcore Dancehall party. When I started the party it brought out a huge population of New Yorkers who felt like they were missing that vibe. Not to say that those parties don’t go on at all because they definitely do all over and especially in Brooklyn. It’s just a lot of the demographic that attended “Tingz” may have at some time or another fell out of the loop with their culture so it was like a breath of fresh air to them. I realized “Tingz” was re-connecting a lot of young mostly creative West Indian New York youth to their culture and teaching to those that knew nothing about it. This was around the same time that Afrobeats had exploded on an American mainstream level (sad to say but American mainstream is always late) and I was getting brought out a lot by friends of mine who are Nigerian, mainly Ivie E. Ani and Flo Ngala.

Also being West Indian, many of us have family members who are Rastafarian. I remember from young going back home and speaking with my grandfather and his friends who were also elders and them saying things to me like, “Remember always keep your eyes on Africa.” Those things always stuck with me. My parents are also very Black conscious people and always spoke things about Africa and who we are to me so the spark, curiosity, and interest was always there. However when I started going out with Ivie and Flo, it was my first time I was actually experiencing the culture in person. If I can bridge that gap then it’s a job well done and it’s much easier to do that with people when you can show them commonalities. This world is all about give and take.

[Intro]
Keep on lightin’ me up, on lightin’ me up
On lightin’ it up
Lightin’ me up, on lightin’ me up

[Verse 1]
It ain’t about the money, don’t matter where you’re from
Don’t care ’bout what you believe in
Or who you wanna love
Let’s get back to basics, before we turn to dust
Forget about all the illusions
Tonight it’s us

[Chorus]

Say my name and let’s get shackled on my light
Don’t let go ’cause I need you for life

[Verse 2]
So I trip but not a bargain, that’s how we shed our pain
The monsters waiting outside, like poison for the brain
Things get a little bit crazy, don’t need to feel ashamed
There’s no more time for cryin’
We can be our DJ
Play our worries away
You can be our savior
Keep on lightin’ me up, on lightin’ me up
On lightin’ it up

Say my name and let’s get shackled on my light (Say my name and let’s be shackled)
Don’t let go ’cause I need you for life

[Bridge]
Trapped inside the rhythm world, I feel free
Let me be your prisoner
Suffocated by the beat, lets me breathe
Keep on lightin’ me up, keep on lightin’ it up

Shine on, keep me dancin’ all night
Ain’t no ball and chain
Don’t let go, I need you (Need you, need you, need you)

Shine on, keep me dancin’ all night
Ain’t no ball and chain (Ain’t no)
Don’t let go, I need you for life

[Post-Chorus]
Know you need me and I need you to survive (Know you need me and I need you to survive)
I’ll be dancin’, we’ll be dancing for our lives (I’ll be dancin’, we’ll be dancing for our lives)
Say my name and let’s be shackled on my light (Say my name and let’s be shackled)
Don’t let go ’cause I need you for life

[Outro]
Know you need me and I need you to survive (Ain’t no)
How we dancin’, when dancin’ for the lights
Say my name and let’s be shackled on my light (Ain’t no)
Don’t let go ’cause I need you for life

P.o.s – Fuck Your Stuff Lyrics

Yeah, LazerBeak
And DTR, Doomtree
Rhymesayers Entertainment
Marijuana Deathsquads, oh

[Hook]
My whole crew’s on some shit
Scuffing up your Nikes, spitting on your whip
Kicking out your DJ, rock it then we dip

[Verse 1]
Looking out the window like Malcolm
Just when I thought this culture was open they go and doubt him
f**k, dumbing it down, spit ice, skip jewelry
Molotov cocktails on me like accessories
Uhm, they can teach you how to front
I am really raw, I ain’t seen a mirror in a month
But I stay fly, spinning man
Flipping out with the breeze, I’m a ceiling fan
I’mma get ’em, I can show you how to bump
Something heavy in the back, marshall stacks in the trunk
Got the windows down, I got the heat turned up
On blast wagging on ’em on the West Bank
Handling the style, or catch me on a mission
Pissing in some convertible tryna create some tension
Or in a book discussing Christopher Hitchens
Or how to make bombs with shit you find in your kitchen, listen

[Hook x2]
My whole crew’s on some shit
Scuffing up your Nikes, spitting on your whip
Kicking out your DJ, rock it then we dip
We don’t watch the replay, we play

[Verse 2]
I never cared about your bucks
So if I run up with a mask on
Probably got a gas can too
And I’m not here to fill her up, no
We came here to riot, here to incite
We don’t want any of your stuff
Keep sticking to the script, mane, we never seen that shit
We knew the secret before they went ahead and Wiki leaked it
Made a dump, bang it out the speakers
Hoping to smash capital quotes on the word “leaders”
They in the past, so we dancing on they ashes
Onward, upward, laughing at the masses
Thinking while they sit I just go off on they ass
Wearing last year’s trash ladies still be batting lashes
And tryne smash us, the passion to go
The lack of a muzzle and a style that’s f**king irrational

[Interlude]
f**k your stuff
I mean for real
We genuinely believe that all your shit is fake

[Hook]

I ain’t kidding, I got this brick in my hand

[Hook x2]

Frisco – What’s Man Saying Lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah
Sky!

[Verse]
What’s man saying? What’s man saying?
I ain’t playing no games
They better start praying, they better start praying
I’m still flirting with death
So what’s man saying? What’s man saying?
And dem man are shaky, swinging and swaying
What’s man saying?
I done told man already, I roll with the elephants
So dem man there better be easy
Flows on top of flows on top of flows
No wonder why these MCs pree me
(Yeah, come on fam)
And then they get pissed off cuh they can’t see me
Big Frisco, I go hard weekly
And to the way how I’m rating that African vibe
Might buy me a dashiki
Kill an MC with bars easy
Fake it till you make it? f**k that
You can’t heal from a scar easy
And you can get scarred easy
Told everybody on my last CD
Had a few battles, I’ve never lost one
I’m a don, I’ve got a hard CV
And that flow’s crazy, anyway
Onto the next one, Swayzee
Told man already, I ain’t playing no games
Only a DJ can play me
Approach with caution for your own safety
We’ve got something that’s locked and loaded
And the mandem ain’t respecting safety
I’m a G in this ting so
What’s man saying? What’s man saying?
If you ain’t playing Frisco
What’s man playing? What’s man playing?
What’s man playing at?
I ain’t the best? I wanna know who’s saying that
Sky an MC into orbit
And when he comes down, I’m gonna keep on spraying that
I’ve got a cup with ice, put ray in that
The streets don’t love you
Forget love for the streets
Cuh when it goes off
The streets ain’t gonna comfort and hug you
Everybody knows what I’m on when I come through
Weed, girls, vibes
Jump on the stage and I merk guys
These MCs need to learn style
What’s man saying?
These likkle man need to earn stripes
Likkle bad breed, 10 or 11 years old
When I started to learn crime
Hit the road and earnt mine
Then I got nicked for the first time
(Mad ting)
From there, I hated the feds
It’s Big Fris and I’m back at my best
Can’t diss me and think everyting’s bless
Come to your studio, jump on your desk
My button’s one that you don’t wanna press
Man’ll get beaten up for less
Squashing up mersh and saying it’s cess
He’s a joke man, what do you expect?
Joke man, move to the left
Yo, what’s man saying? What’s man saying?
What’s man-, what’s man saying?
Dem man ain’t saying nuttin’
Big Fris
Cold
Ayy, you know what it is already
It’s not a bag of chatting
Guerrilla mentality, rudeboy
Show

Chip Taylor – On The Radio Lyrics

This is how it works
It feels a little worse
And when we drove our first ride
Through that screaming crowd
While laughing up a storm
Until we were just bone
Until it got so warm
And none of us could sleep
And all the styrofoam
Began to melt away
And we try to find some words
To lead in the decay
But none of them were home
Inside their catacomb
A million ancient bees
Began to sting our knees
While we were on our knees
Praying the disease
Would leave the ones we love
And never come again
And on the radio
We heard November Rain
That solo’s really long
But it is a pretty song
We listened to it twice
As the DJ was asleep
He was asleep
No this is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
And you love until you don’t
And you try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
And you cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath
No this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
And you take the things you like
And try to love the things you took
Then you take that love you made
And stick it into
Someone else’s heart
Pumping someone else’s blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope that don’t get harmed
And even if it does
You would just do it all again
And on the radio
We hear November Rain
And that solo is awfully long
But it is a good refrain
We listened to it twice
Cause the DJ is asleep
He is asleep
On the radio
The DJ is asleep
He is asleep

Curtis Grimes – Ten Year Town Lyrics

When I pulled in to the home of country music
There was a worn out for sale sign stuck in the lawn
I tried my best to track down those who built it
But they all passed away or plum moved on
I drove on down to what I thought was the Grand Ole Opry
To find that stained glass cast on some empty pews
I couldn’t hear Whisperin’ Bill or see Porter’s rhinestones shine on stage
Just an echo of how we use to be down on Broadway

I’m decades late to a ten year town
The radio station done changed its sound
To a hip hop beat with a drum track loop
That they call country music
I came out here so I could write and sing
Not rap on stage wearin’ skinny jeans
Good thing I don’t mind sticking out of the in-crowd
‘Cause I’m a few decades late to make it in a ten year town

A honkey tonk use to be a tonk where a honky drank
Now it’s a dance club playin’ Top 40 from an MP3
I found out the hard way, a band’s been replaced by a DJ
Who don’t know “You Never Even Called Me By My Name”

I’m decades late to a ten year town
The radio station done changed its sound
To a hip hop beat with a drum track loop
That they call country music
I came out here so I could write and sing
Not rap on stage wearin’ skinny jeans
Good thing I don’t mind sticking out of the in-crowd
‘Cause I’m a few decades late to make it In a ten year town

I came out here so I could write and sing
Not rap on stage wearin’ skinny jeans
Good thing I don’t mind sticking out of the in-crowd
‘Cause I’m a few decades late to make it in a ten year town
They can’t pay me enough to shake it
I’ve had about all I can take
In this ten year town

K. Forest – Nobu Lyrics

[Chorus]
Girl I want you to see what I see
So I’ll take you to Nobu, off the coast to Malibu
Everywhere I go this where you’ll be
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu

[Verse 1]
You’re in the hills and I’m in Santa Monica
Meet me halfway then we’ll head straight to Malibu
No reservations, we just walked through the restaurant
Link the owner then we’re off to the private room
Follow the server wearin’ black top to top, yeah
[?] ’cause your heels make sounds on the hardwood
Nobu fancy but we ain’t gotta be dressed up
Just enough to get me up to give you hardwood
Later, save that for later
Like we walked up in the building with containers
But first, look at the menu, aye
If I don’t guess somethin’ soon, aye, I’m gon’ have to taste you
Loosen up, baby take shots of the Sake, aye, yeah
Girl come closer, let me feed you Edamame, aye
Too much Sake and we might not reach the party, aye
But that’s okay ’cause I still rock with you the long way

[Chorus]
Girl I want you to see what I see
So I’ll take you to Nobu, off the coast to Malibu
Everywhere I go this where you’ll be
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu

[Verse 2]
When you’re ready to decide what you want I’ll tell the server
In the meantime let’s go outside and watch the waves
Lean over the balcony where I can catch a sneak peak
Pull up a hundred girl don’t finna grip the waist
But damn let’s do this later, baby we ain’t even order yet
Hot pepper hors d’oeuvres, DJ put me onto this
So in return I put you on, brace my fingers on your thighs
And during dinner turn you on, I’m gettin’ my ish so
[?] gettin’ darker and darker
Spread the soy all over the hot stones
Use my chopsticks to pick up the sushi
I’ll feed you baby even though you still grown
I ain’t gonna eat too much I’m saving room for
The real meal (yeah), the real deal (yeah)
I ain’t gonna eat too much I need the space for
The main course, lowkey you’re the main course

[Chorus]
Girl I want you to see what I see
So I’ll take you to Nobu, of the coast to Malibu
Everywhere I go this where you’ll be
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu (take you to Nobu)
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu (take you to Nobu)
Yeah

[Outro]
Nobu, Nobu, Nobu
Take you to Nobu
Nobu, yeah
I meant it when I told you, that I’d take you to Nobu (Nobu, Nobu)
I meant it when I told you, I meant it when I told you that I’d take you to Nobu (Nobu, Nobu)

Dekstra Large – Just Relax Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I tell myself, try to understand
Keep an open mind and aspire to advance
You need to know how I hide a hand
Genetically engineered us from a primal man
The pineal gland waits inside
You need access, you don’t wanna waste your time
Your frequence is low, gotta take it high
Your life is limited, you gotta make it live
Get tired of repetition, gotta shuffle the playlist
Drugged up or in labor, stuck in a matrix
Suffering crazy, it’s in loving and in hating
It’s a DJ in the making just juggling basics
Something amazing, like stars when you gazing
Anything can happen, it’s ours for the taking
Opportunities lost, but far from forsaken
Set me in an action for God’s entertainment
Pawns get played with and the angels laugh
Like billions of souls on a painful path
We breed moments of joy, build and destroy
We lost our way and it makes us mad

[Hook]
Just relax
I can take it from here cause I hear you ain’t up for the task
I got it covered, no discussions of that
But I’m making fresh trails on a dusty path
March, step, creep, jump
Just move, everybody gotta keep up
Just move, and just relax
Just move, and just relax

[Verse 2]
Take it easy, what’s the rush?
Who you tryna scare with your huffs and puffs?
I’m right here if you need assistance
But you don’t need me to reach the distance
I wouldn’t worry about a thing, son
You’re gonna win some or lose some and then some
We got different skills, we help one and other
Hope you got my back when the rest don’t wanna
I’m the blame if I end up alone
I don’t wanna be a king defending the throne
Pretend is in clones, insecure
You need to scratch back and your itchy nerves
Picture perfect doesn’t exist
Untill we get revolution up in this
Retrobution is not an option
Only next level mindsets can stop the problem

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
I am that I am, lost in translation
Everything is everything, gotta have patience
Vibration, the world is duality
Separation, verge of insanity
Don’t judge, observe when you study
Past, future, regrets, worries
Move steady and float to a new goal
Never wake up, who’s ready to go?

[Hook]

Split Prophets – Tung Fu Lyrics

[Intro]

As I’ve said before, modern life in the city is full of hidden dangers. Why are we here? We are here to learn how to defend ourselves against these dangers. This week we’re gonna be looking at how you can use the negative energy of a would be assailant, and turn it into a positive force, for your own self-defence. In other words turning their aggression, to our advantage

If you’d all like to split into pairs please
I don’t wanna see any Jackie Chan bollocks
I wanna see some windmilling in, and if you’ve got a set of keys on you stick ’em in your hand and make them count!

[Verse 1]

Yo

Kick or punch stuck up kids that front
It’s up front
And that kid with mad scripts that bump
Rip that skunk
Into tiny pieces at once
And start smoking ’til your choking on massive bits of your lungs
Cuz
f**k it
We’re gunna die before our time is due
That’s why we keep getting so f**ked
That our mind is screwed
And you should keep your mouth shut if you think this guy is rude
If I was you I’d think twice before you try to ignite a feud
Cos there’s no going back
Once you wage war with us
You’ll get crushed
And get trampled on the stage floor
Who’s bars are you spitting because they ain’t yours
We bring original hip-hop
Stay raw
So make sure you train for it
Cos what you say’s boring
Get up on the stage and all the fakes forfeit
Weed, music and girls
That’s how my brain orbits
3-6-5 days of the year
I’m made for this

[Verse 2]

Kick and punch stuck up kids that front
Its up front
And that kid with mad scripts that bump
We bitch slap chumps
That proceed to spit wack junk
And burn diesel in the middle of this big fat dump
Where
Delicate bitches get their piss-flaps pumped
By big bad cunts
That kick back and bring that funk
We baffle backwards talking kids at once
And stay smoking ’til we’re choking on big black lungs
So hit that blunt
And “shh shh”
When we recite scriptures
That entice listeners
For them its like Christmas
Weed, music and gin
Yeah that’s a nice mixture
And I consume it excessively
‘Til my mind blisters
And there ain’t no going back
When you start static
But you can’t back it
We bring the pressure you can’t manage
S-P family tree yo
We aren’t slacking
3-6-5 days of the year
We’re hard at it

[Breakdown]

When you’re ready, come at me

Come one then you f**king slag!
You f**king want some!?

[Verse 3]

Yo
Yeah
Yo

Punch and kick kids front up that’s rich
It’s up front
And that kid we tonk cunts that fit (?)
f**k that it’s
Time to make a skunk pipe spliff (?)
And breathe in
‘Til I feel like I’ve done acid
Straight
Cos only people who I’ve run tracks with
Are worthy spitters
The rest are bitter chumps that wish
They made it further than these scumbags did
But they aren’t massive
That’s why they’re hating all the stuff that’s big
We brung that piff
Causing fires like a struck matchstick
We don’t even need a sample
Just the drums that’s it
You’ll see the crowd all astounded
Like we done magic
Head ablaze bro grab the DJ tell him
“Bun that shit”
B’cuh I’m mad pissed
And he’s unsure that he does have this
Slap and abuse him cos he’s slacking
Like a dumb slag’s minge
You say you’re amazing but you’re, um, tragic
Been spitting for ages and I ain’t heard you once rap sick

[Verse 4]

Yo

Punch and kick kids front up that’s rich
It’s up front
And that kid
We tonk cunts that fit (?)
f**k fat lips
It’s time to kick off nuff madness
And if somebody tells you different switch and slump that bitch
Only people who I bust raps with
Are up to scratch
All you other cats can cut that shit
It’s terrorism when I clutch that mick
I mean mic
Got your face all screwed up like you just drank piss
Run that diss
I dare you blud
We’ll come back thick
Your whole gang will be kicking dust up like
“Bun that, dip”
Heavy (?) keeps us active
We talk bare shit but back it
So think twice when you weigh up that risk
Cos we be different to you punks that spit
You bitch-made
We f**k bitches that are attractive
If it ain’t funky I don’t touch that shit
That goes for pussy, money, weed and music man I love that shit

Sweet Tee – Show And Prove Lyrics

Right here is the place for you to get yours
Those who can’t, wait, pause
Listen to the fly bassline and kick drum
You can’t hear it? Then throw a tantrum
And to make sure [?]
All the people in the place will know
This music, listen to the way I choose it
My talent, no, I’ll never lose it
See everyone applaud and get to it
No one ever try to diss or boo it
How could they anyway?
With me on the mic and my DJ on the cuts, hey
She’s sharp like a dart or cleaver
DJs, I suggest you leave her
Be, oh I see, I gotta make my move
You wanna hang with us? Then show and prove

You got ta show and prove

Show and prove, I’ll prove and show it
Whenever Tee’s on the mic, you know it’s
Got to be the moment that you were gonna
See somethin’ really spectacular
I’m pure like a thoroughbred, faster than a stallion
Bad in German, Swedish or Italian
[Cherish?] the mic the way a kid with crayons
I reach the [?] soul like in a séance
Paid to rock around the clock and knock your sock
Hip hop down, until your ass drops
This song is on so sing along
When you think I’m out of breath I’ll still be rockin’ on
You want a rhyme? I’ma feed you like a hog
Devour the lines just like a dog
I’m talkin’ to you, so get with the groove
What I’m ready to do is show and prove

I’m gonna show and prove

Get out my pad, I’m on a rampage
Grab all your stuff, and clear the damn stage
I sound stronger than a bottle of gin, straight
Out the box, I’m packin’ em in when
I just snap it, just start rappin’
Hear your beat tappin’, hands start clappin’
Now here’s some more def grammar to relate to
No punctuation needed, I’ll go straight through
[Pack it up?] hit you harder than a phaser
My voice will tranq you, the beat will raise you
Off the floor, off your chair, while you’re there
Raise your hair, I’ll have you floatin’ on it
The S-W, double-E, double-T
Pack ’em up to the balcony
When the show starts, hear them yell for me
Don’t get frustrated if you can’t see
Don’t need a telescope to [tell this code?]
[Prosthetic?], forget it, just yell it’s dope
Cause it’s [due?], the beat is too smooth
Can you swing with this? Then show and prove

I wanna see you show and prove
You got ta, got ta, got ta show and prove
You gotta-gotta show and prove

Junkie XL – Off The Dancefloor Lyrics (feat. Isis Salam)

Oh why so serious
We are just a bunch of kids
Looking for fun under the sun never done
To the party is
We can pop a couple pills
I’m just looking for a thrill
Anything to get my mind off paying all these god damn bills
City lights walking out that door
On my way to the disco
Come on DJ gimme some more
Feel the bass on my back sweat dripping off my clothes
Now this is your chance here, now this your chance here
If you ain’t gonna dance trick, get yo ass off my dancefloor

I’ve never seen this side of you before, I’ve never seen this before
Get yo ass off my dancefloor

Get yo ass off my dancefloor
Hot damn hoe, here we go again
Look man, i’m just looking for a friend
Listen here mister, I insist that you buy me a drink
We can talk about yesterdays, skinny jeans were all the craze
Now all the cool kids acting stupid, acting stupid
Neon lights walking out at the beerstore
On my way to dancehall
Come on DJ gimme some more
Feel the bass on my back sweat dripping off my clothes
Now this is your chance here, now this your chance here
If you ain’t gonna dance trick, get yo ass off the dancefloor

Filthy Gears – Running Lyrics (feat. P Money)

[Chorus: P Money]
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (Running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (Running)
All my nine-to-fivers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on (running)
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
All my 9-to-5ers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on (running)

[Verse 1: P Money]
‘Nuff man have got their mind right
Every lyric is a drive-by
“Are you dizzy? Man will pull up and—” smack talk
I’ll drop a line, then leave ’em wide-eyed
You used to check for your friends all the time, right?
Now it’s just timelines, even I check on the slime line
I drop tracks, then leave it to blow before theirs
It’s all about how I timed mine (running)
When I first started to write rhymes
Two-double-O 5, it was grime time
OGz, same crew I’ve got now
But it wasn’t flipping six man, it was like nine
Spitting on the fifth floor taught me
Between a shotta and a cokehead was a fine line
I always knew my man was a cat
‘Cause he came back nine times (running)
I encourage those that want a life like mine
Grind like skates on railings or pipelines
You’ll get the money, car, clothes and the flight time
Or a girl with legs so out of this world
You’ll save their number as “sci-fi”
Could be wifey or Wi-Fi
A clean heart and a wise mind will keep the music (running)

[Chorus: P Money]
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
All my 9-to-5ers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on (running)
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
All my 9-to-5ers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on (running)

[Verse 2: P Money]
I do it for the streets and the lifers
Workaholics, all my 9-to-5ers
The picture I paint is a straight line
And whatever I say into the mic is righteous
They say in this ting, I’m a pilot
Lost my way and had to visit some pirates
Radar Radio
I guess even pilots need guidance
My punches are violent
Got fans in Wales, Scotland and Ireland
I used to have a mad state of mind
Now I get played in all kind of states and islands
Not rich but I can stand beside them
Gold teeth, now I might get some with diamonds
They say my music is nuts
But I doubt I would ever get signed by Simon
So I go with it
I could get deals off my old lyrics
Due to throw a party next door
‘Cause I could write yours and my own lyrics
That’s facts, they’re tryna talk with no minutes
I’m like huh? I don’t get it
What’s that? I’ve got Stormzy cold lyrics
You’ve got you weren’t involved lyrics

[Chorus: P Money]
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
All my 9-to-5ers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on (running)
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
I said when you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that (running)
All my 9-to-5ers that’s grinding
To keep that electric and water (running)
All my young dargs on the roadside
Don’t get caught slipping, keep on

[Outro: P Money]
Running
When you hear this on the station
Tell the DJ keep that running
When you hear this on the station
You get me?
Moneyman pon mic
P Money
You know who it is
Man like

Dj Chose – Run It Up Lyrics (feat. Beat King)

[Hook]
Ain’t too many out there that eating close to me
I ain’t quite yet where I’m supposed to be
My first 20 grand, that was broke to me
So a young nigga
Had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up
Had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up

[Verse 1]
Better there a Porsche, buy the porch out the [?]
Tell ’em Ace of Spades, bottles I prefer it
DJ so broke, where the f**k, where you heard that?
My bitch bad, if you shoot, she gon’ [?] it
Bank account thick, super thick, it’s already big
I’m just getting money, more money than your man did
‘Bout to run it up, run it up like the bleachers
If you ain’t spending money, don’t be hitting me for no features
Nigga done change, little nigga had to elevate
Came up a little, made some more moves, ’bout to celebrate
Money kept it real, let your people know you never fake
Go hard for the bag yeah, young nigga get hella cake

[Hook]
Ain’t too many out there that eating close to me
I ain’t quite yet where I’m supposed to be
My first 20 grand, that was broke to me
So a young nigga
Had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up
Had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up

[Verse 2]
Double cup with the red, I don’t need no ice
Running up that paper, could probably smash your wife
Never buy it if you can’t afford to buy it twice
Never buy it if you can’t afford to buy it twice
I’ve been stacking paper since 2010
Club God and Chose f**king up the streets again
If she let me smash, probably never call again
If she acting salty, I’ll probably hit her friend
Had to run it up in that foreign, switching lanes
Had to run it up, got your broad giving brain
Had to run it up, sipping grad, tipping grain
Club going, don’t forget the name

[Hook]
So a young nigga had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up
Had to run it up, so I ran it up
Tryna run it up, tryna run it up
Money going up, money going up
Money going up, money going up
