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.

Stylo G’s “Dumpling Remix” Hit 50m Views Proving Spice & Sean Paul Pulling Power

The “Dumpling” remix has surpassed 50 million views on YouTube, and UK-based dancehall star Stylo G is ecstatic with the success of the track. He updated fans about the progress of the track and its success on Instagram.

Alongside a clip of the video for the remix, he posted: “50 million dumplings share out, world hit, just over a year we drop this”. There’s no doubt that the track was given a huge boost as two dancehall mega-stars, Spice and Sean Paul, jumped on it. Fans have definitely taken to the remix and can’t seem to get enough of it.

It was released in 2019 and is Stylo G’s most-viewed song on YouTube to date. The artist, who hails from Spanish Town, already found success with the original “Dumpling” track, but it got just close to nine million views since its release and pales in comparison to the number of views that the remix has gotten.

Spice was one of the first to congratulate the artists, saying: “A pure problem when this drop a mi show dem,” a fan added, “It’s been a long lockdown, ya’ll been on repeat,” and this one stated, “This could never get old!” Most of the fans simply commented with fire emojis when the post was made on May 11. So far, it has gotten over 25,000 likes.

It seems Spice and Sean Paul have the Midas touch recently as the two also helped out each other on one of Spice’s recent tracks called “Go Down Deh”, which was released on YouTube on May 1 and has already brought in close to five million views. Veteran Shaggy is also featured on that track. The track is on course to dominate as it debuted at #1 on US and Israeli iTunes Reggae, #2 in the UK, Italy, and Canada, and Top 10 on Apple Music, iTunes, and Deezer. Streaming of the track was recorded globally in countries like Japan, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Stylo G is now known for his hit collaborations, including “Touch Down,” which he recorded with Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel and has reached about 19 million views since its release.

Dancehall Legend Baby Cham Calls Jamaican Gov’t Bias For Easing UK Travel Ban

Baby Cham speak on the Jamaican government lifting UK travel ban while ignoring the entertainment sector.

Most sectors of the Jamaican economy, like many other countries around the world, have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. The entertainment sector has staggered and tried as best as possible to keep up with the restrictions put in place to safeguard the country. With restrictions looking to be relaxed soon for UK tourism, veteran dancehall artist Baby Cham is making his feelings on the way the government handled the pandemic known. He posted a clip of his recent track called “Lockdown” on Usain Bolt’s Clockwork Riddim. He made sure to include his more explicit lyrics in expressing his feelings on Instagram.

He also made his feelings known with the caption attached to the short video clip. He was obviously upset as he also made the caption in all caps.

“TOURISM BOARD AND THE HOTELS / RESORTS CRIED THAT THEIR BUSINESS IS DYING, SO THE GOVERNMENT IS OPENING THE COUNTRY FOR THEM ON MAY 1ST TO SAVE THEIR POCKETS!! PROMOTER, DJs, ENTERTAINERS, CORNER SHOPS AND THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY HAVE BEEN CRYING (TO DEAF EARS) THAT THEY TOO ARE DYING – BUT THE GOVERNMENT HAS IMPOSED STRICTER “LOCK DOWN” ON THEM!! WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR? WHO PUT YOU IN POWER?? WILL YOU POLICE THE HOTELS AND TOURIST THE SAME AS YOU POLICE THE PEOPLE???” he posted.

A post shared by Baby Cham (@thecham)

The “Ghetto Story” deejay is lashing out at Jamaica’s Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett, who recently announced that the travel ban on the United Kingdom, which was supposed to end last Friday, April 30, would not be renewed. The ban was part of Jamaica’s Disaster Risk Management Act to help mitigate the spread of the UK variant of the virus.

“On Saturday May 1, Jamaica will reopen its borders to international visitors from the United Kingdom. This will enable the critical gateways of Heathrow and Gatwick airports, to have transit for passengers coming through and who are fully compliant with health and safety protocols required for international travel,” Bartlett said.

He added that the decision was taken to try and help boost the island’s economy.

“Jamaica’s position at this time is critical in relation to the opening up of the summer tourist season and in fact, the importance of enabling the diaspora, particularly the strong British clientele that have always come to the island,” he said.

Jamaica’s borders have been open since June 2020, and they’ve already welcomed about 1.5 million visitors. All visitors welcomed had a quarantine period and had to follow other health protocols. Cham’s take on the matter is that the hoteliers and others in the sector cried out for help and have been given it while the poor and disenfranchised have been left to fend for themselves. The part of the song he chose lamented all of these issues. For the most part, it seemed that his fans agreed with his stance.

“Unfair bad and it is not even funny. The government is not for the people who risk their life during election and put dem on power…. Set of dictators,” this fan said, another added, “@cham….pure double standard!!!! Do the jamaican govt realize sey a di people, di food, di place and definitely di music why most tourists come a yaad? The citizens, athletes and mostly of the artists promote the country and are the quintessential vessel in putting out Jamaica to the world. Tek care a u people dem govt of JA. U can’t have certain people a benefit in di country and the ones who put unu in postion a get constant raw deals.. get it under control quick,” and this fan chimed in, “Such everyone should boycott travelling there until its open for all. Most of the owners prob not even citizens. Although yes they employ them but still. That country is what it is because of what the leaders have done or more importantly not done to help the country as a whole and that goes for anyone who has a voice. Soooo many voices and I hear like 3. Why. Crickets and ants everywhere just like that Disney movie. Watch that. Same sht.”

Do you agree with Baby Cham’s take on UK tourists being allowed into Jamaica?

U.K. rapper Jords returns with Masego and kadiata on “Enemies”

By Sajae Elder

April 14, 2021

U.K. MC Jords shared his latest single “Enemies,” alongside rapper kadiata and Masego, on Wednesday. The track sees the trio trading bars about loyalty and evolving friendships over bouncy production.

“I really want people to travel through time with my music,” Jords said of the song and its nostalgic, UK funky house sound. “This is all about bridging the gap and showing that the sound is global but local.” Masego, who crops up on the track’s hook, added how the song came together via email. “[The track] was Jords’ idea, I just brought it into my world and I love what it grew into,” he explained.

“Me & Jords have known each other for around 4 years so it was long over due,” rapper kadiata added. “We linked up & set up studio in a Brighton apartment near the sea to get away from london for a little minute and I just went with whatever came natural to me which was to be funny, witty & relatable.”

The London producer’s debut single comes with two heavy-hitting guests.

By Jordan Darville

There’s a lot of talent on “Dimension,” the new song from JAE5. There’s the East London producer himself, whose Afrobeats-inspired hip-hop sonics help catapult London’s J Hus to stardom (and onto the cover of The FADER). Then there are the songs featured artists, grime legend Skepta and Nigerian pop star Rema, who also covered our magazine once upon a time. All that should inspire you to check out the music video for “Dimension,” streaming above.

The clip is shot in Ghana, where J Hus was born, and is stuffed with color and allegorical, slightly sci-fi imagery. “For my first single,” JAE5 said in a press station, “I wanted to pull off something that represented me well. It had to be heavily influenced by Afrobeats and the UK urban scene. Skepta & Rema are the perfect combination. ‘Dimension’ is a meaningful track with a vibe! Skepta as always delivers the maddest verse and Rema on the hook – that guy just isn’t normal! I hope everyone enjoys the track.”

Protoje & Popcaan Recruits Pa Salieu For “Still Royal” The Royalty Remix

Protoje is dropping the remix to his and Popcaan’s “Like Royalty” today, with Pa Salieu calling it “Still Royal.”

When Protoje released his Popcaan-assisted track “Like Royalty,” it was an instant success. The original track appeared on the In.Digg.Nation leader’s 2020 album In Search Of Lost Time premiered in August and has accumulated over 5 million views on YouTube since.

On Thursday (March 18), Protoje announced a follow-up to the hit song called “Still Royal,” which is a remix to the original track that will feature British rapper Pa Salieu. The new release is slated to drop today at 3 pm. The producer behind the track, Toddla T, shared a preview on his Instagram earlier this week in a video of him and Pa Salieu rocking out to the track in the studio.

“Life intense, Aim fi di best, Diamond from di sands, Pree da crown on mi head, Life intense Aim fi di best Diamond from di sands, Pree da crown on mi head, Lord manna blessed, Blessed with strength,” Pa Salieu deejay.

Pa Salieu, a UK-based rapper/deejay from Coventry, popped on the scene at the top of 2020 with the release of his debut track “Frontline,” which has since accumulated over 4 million views on YouTube. It became the most played track on BBC 1Xtra last year. Protoje called the original track a classic and expressed how eager he was for the release.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Lucki:]
I hear you’re looking for Candyman, bitch
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy
All that greed, you should kill yourself
All that greed, you should, uh, ayy

All that greed, you should kill yourself
Been geeked, boy, I’ma heal myself

Sitting back, feeling like a P-I-M-P
Remember when niggas’d just give me hell

Rockin’ big clothes, like it’s twenty-oh-three
Pull up, 650, not G 6-3
Have a cookout, everybody get smoke
Niggas going through it, code green like a lima bean
UK bitches tooted up off of ketamine
Turn him to a pack, leave him stuffed like a figurine
Nigga think he fly? We gon’ give that boy a set of wings
Four in the two, shoot-shoot, that’s the regiment
My jeweler just made a light like he Edison
p*ssy grip tight, on the finger like a wedding band
Drop a new clip in the Glock, I slide in (Ayy, ayy, ayy)

[Lucki:]
All that greed, you should kill yourself
Been geeked, boy, I’ma heal myself
Another high-speed and she still ain’t ate
Sex, money, drugs, I can’t feel my face
Big bro Card in the VIP
Drive so fast, we don’t need IDs
Ho so pretty and she still gon’ bake
Another high-speed and she still ain’t ate

Alkaline Nabs Pandora’s Reggae Now Playlist Cover As “Top Prize” Debut No. 1 On iTunes

Alkaline debuts at the top of the iTunes chart with her new song, “Top Prize,” after picking up the cover of Pandora’s Reggae Now playlist.

Alkaline has dropped some good news that his fans are sure to love as he announced that a new album is coming! We haven’t seen much of Alkaline, but we have heard him with hits like ‘Cree’ and ‘Ocean Wave’ released last year, but one thing’s for sure, any prolonged absence is usually a good thing for Alka, who doesn’t seem to fraternize much with the rest of dancehall.

In past times, the lyricist has been compared to the great Vybz Kartel, and there have been many so-called manufactured beef started by fans of the two artists. However, in spite of that, one thing we can agree on is appreciating good music, and Alkaline has never failed to deliver, so there are high hopes for his upcoming album.

According to Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, the new project has 14 tracks and is named Top Prize.

He explains the motivation behind the name “[top prize] represents when you win a competition, basically showcasing victory against all odds. This album is timely with the opportunities I have been given, lessons learned along the way, my personal growth and experiences…experience teaches wisdom, so it is only fair that I bring everything full circle.

Alkaline’s debut album New Level Unlocked was released in 2016. It peaked at No. 1 and spent 18 weeks on the Billboard Reggae Chart. In spite of only releasing one album, his singles have also driven up enviable numbers! ‘ATM,’ released in 2020, has 23 million streams on YouTube. His streaming presence surpasses 30 million streams- on digital streaming platforms like Spotify- Canada, United States, the UK, African, and Germany.

He also retains a strong presence on Pandora with 39 million streams, which covers both radio and app, and has about 140,000 monthly listeners.

On Friday, Pandora Music made ‘The Man Himself’ as he is often called- the cover of the new Reggae Now playlist as he shared that the album is among the lineup.

He also has a preview of Apple Music released on Friday. The song that’s featured is called “Single” and starts with the popular Jamaican phrase “wha nuh dead nuh dash weh.”

Meanwhile, the female Detta fans are also loving the artiste’s new look, which shows him sporting natural hair plaited into sections and also sporting a neatly lined bushy beard!

Penx – Keanu Reeves Lyrics

[Zwrotka 1]
Yo!
Ubierz dziewczynę jak dziwkę, pokaż do miłości dystans
Potem tłumacz innym, że to przez to, że pierdolisz islam
I że w ogóle wszystko fajnie między wami się układa
Gdy spytają prosto z mostu o to jak na was zarabia
Świat zwariował już do reszty, ja chciałbym tu znać przyczyny
Traktujecie kobiety jak kurwy, kobiety was jak dziewczyny
Poka co ma do ukrycia jak już się zakocha
Albo ukryj to i pokaż jej klasę na pokaz
Dla mnie pojebani, zrozum, że też nie chcę być obrońcą
Gardzę kobietami, które świadomie się na to godzą
Miłość oślepia, wiem, trochę to niewdzięczne
Nie pierdol farmazonów (widzę, że ma dobre serce)
Wiem, że macie w chuju 500+ program
Tracąc ten grunt co dnia nowa oferta banku wam mózg wciąga
Mamy kob.. znaczy maszynki do pieniędzy
Twój kapitał wzrośnie w ciągu dziewięciu miesięcy (rozumiesz)
Weź jej nalej wódy, ta, stopro, że ogarniesz
Na końcu więcej sosu, wzrośnie oprocentowanie
Trzymam się tematu, hehehe, zboczyłem troszkę
No zboczyłem troszkę, społeczeństwo kurwa głupie takie
Nie skończyłem wnioskiem żadnym, a szanse, że stulę japę
Są znikome
Nic na siłę mimo, że też lubię papier
Trudne raczej myśleć, gdy oszukać chcesz naturę
Się powoli gubię czasem w świecie, w którym się znajduję

[Refren x2]
Mów mi Keanu Reeves, ty mów mi Keanu Reeves
Mówię światu wyjdź, nic nie może światu wyjść
Keanu Reeves, jestem jak Keanu Reeves
Wyjdziesz z nimi świat no to możesz zawrócić

[Zwrotka 2]
Dziś wystarczy, że masz hajs, pierdolić jutro, nie zginiesz nigdy
Każdy zapomni o tym, to że wczoraj byłeś nikim (rozumiesz kurwo?)
Beka kurwa za takie podejście, skurwysyny na was czeka trumna
Mój cel to żyć długo i umierać krótko
Mój gniew pozwala tworzyć mi teraz swój tron
Nie mogę być częścią świata, w której zrozum rozum
Został częścią świata i złudzeniem, że idzie do przodu
Dziś kobiety nie chcą dzieci, bo są jeszcze dziećmi
Typy chcą na nowo rodzić się, chcą być piękniejsi
To jest prestiż, każdy żyje paląc sobie znicze
A dwie kreski dla ich typów to melanż i nowe życie
Nie ma tego złego co by nie wyszło na dobre
Tak jak nie ma tego złego, co by nie wyszło na dobre
Popatrz się na księżyc, na świat, nie chcę takiej fazy, jebać
A ja byłem, jestem, będę, popatrz jakie czasy teraz
Nie mogę być częścią świata, gdzie te śmiecie wszystkie (tfu)
Mówią Ci, że koszą hajs co dali im rodzice
Młode dziewczyny chciałyby urodzić młodych bogów
In-vitro strzykawką po herze, szukają dobrych lotów
Ludzie mówią czas to pieniądz, gadki taniej oszczędź
Kupują modne zegarki znów za ostatnie grosze
Co w tych głowach mają ścierwa?
Mówiąc, że jak kobieta nie zdradza to jest kurwa łatwowierna?
Honor, godność, inicjały HG to jest Klucz
Na wagę złota otwieram wrota, ty swoje rób
Nienawiść to jest powoli to, gdy jestem obok
Żyję na krawędzi i poza kontrolą
A jestem sobą, wciąż niewiele wiesz tak o mnie, boli
Joł skurwiele, nie zapomnę kim są dla mnie sami swoi
Pomyliłem chyba, czym jest miłość, a czym sztuka walki
Bije się mocno w serce no i ciągle szukam prawdy
Po drugiej stronie medalu chcę czuć zwycięstwo ciągle
Tylko czemu do wszystkiego jest mi się tak ciężko odnieść (czemu?)
Skromność to ponoć wada, choć masz niewiele, kmioty
Dumni z siebie chodzą nie mając połowy tego co Ty

[Refren x2]
Mów mi Keanu Reeves, ty mów mi Keanu Reeves
Mówię światu wyjdź, nic nie może światu wyjść
Keanu Reeves, jestem jak Keanu Reeves
Wyjdziesz z nimi świat no to możesz zawrócić

W.e.n.a. – Wszystko Lyrics

[Verse 1: Włodi]
7:30 – siedzę na krawędzi łóżka
Twarz chowam w dłoniach, nie podchodzę do lustra
Dusza porzucona, na dnie pusta muszla
Przepuszcza okazję by coś zmienić, bo już mam
Dosyć wygranych, dość porażek
Dowodów na to, co jest ważne
Hedonizmu, dość ascezy,
Cholernej presji, mnóstwa przeżyć
Układów, kompromisów
Cudzych butów w moim życiu
Ślepej wiary, dość obowiązków
Coś jest ze mną nie w porządku?
Mam dość istnienia sensu – zbyt wiele pustki w sercu –
Własnych myśli, ludzkich głosów, dość muzyki, (megaherzów)
Pokory, dobrych rad
Na zewnątrz chłodny wiatr
Zabierze gniew dym z moich ust
Mam dość przemyśleń, pustych słów
Dość walki, dość niemocy
Przeczucia, że czas skończyć
Wszechwiedzących ignorantów
Wezwań do spłat raty w banku
Falsyfikaty. Mam tu, miłość, przyjaźń i szacunek
Bazar uczuć, full podróbek, też masz dosyć? (Witam w klubie)

[Hook: W.E.N.A.] x2

Dość tych samych twarzy wokół siebie
Mam dość – upadam, wstaję, znowu biegnę
Mam dość rytmu dnia, zysków i strat, krzyków i braw
Cyklu lat, być lub brać, gdy dookoła nas nic nie jest pewne

[Bridge: W.E.N.A.]
Nic nie jest pewne x2

[Verse 2: W.E.N.A.]
(Dość!)
Supportu fanów, zdania hejterów, agresji bez celu
Nie mogę znieść powietrza bez tlenu, ambicji graczy i podejścia trenerów
Dość wojny, by wstawać każdego dnia, dosyć wymagań
Dobra i zła, drogi przykazań, resztę spraw daj mi wymazać
Nie chcę wiedzieć, czy wzbiję się i spadnę i ziemia zabije mnie
Nie winię jej, mam dosyć życia, niech przyjdzie śmierć
Żadnych obietnic pochlebcy, kłamcy, oszczercy. Martwa cisza
Chcę nie oddychać, mogę nie myśleć o tym wszystkim dzisiaj?
Ufności i wiary, dość mówienia wciąż o tym samym
Dość patosu wokół, skali chaosu, godności wytrwałych
Żaru piekła, chłodu nieba i anarchii w gettach
Powszechnej apatii, obojętności tłumu, fałszu i tempa
Za którym nie potrafię nadążyć, staję, patrzę na chodnik
Słyszę głosy. Mam dosyć głosów, nie walczę z własnym nieładem, zapomnij
Dosyć nocy, wyrzutów sumienia, dość przeprosin
Nie patrzeć sobie w oczy, mam dosyć siebie, ale dość już o tym

[Hook] x2
[Bridge]

[Verse 3: Te-Tris]
Mam dosyć planów, klepania po plecach, deptania po piętach i pustych rad
Gdybań i debat o celach i błędach, co to je popełniam już drugi raz
Głupich mas, obowiązków, sztucznych gwiazd, ton botoksu
W knajpie napiwków, kapitalizmu, choć wierci mi dziurę mój głos rozsądku
Dość po prostu, dość dziś, nawet Barney mnie nie śmieszy
Nie poznaję własnej matki i warczę do niej jak marnotrawne dzieci
Dość starych śmieci, dość pytań co słychać w moim mieście
Dość tego, co leci w tv i dość tego co wpycha mi internet
Stop, nie mam siły, stop nie mam siły – mam siłę
Kocham świat na co dzień to znienawidzę go chociaż na chwilę
Stop, nie dam rady, stop, nie dam rady – dam radę
Dość rad nieczułych podniebień pod niebem, czuję smak marzeń
Nawet jak łażę z nosem na kwintę, to żyję, marzę i gram vabank
Nie pytaj mnie znów o granice, niebo limitem, to sprawdzam sam
Daj nam czas wygrać, napisać ten ostatni wers
Ale nie dziś, bo najbardziej dość mam tych co się poddają, wiesz?

Luxtorpeda – Mazanic Lyrics

Brzęczą monety, szeleszczą banknoty w rękach estety
Na targach miernoty, dźwięcznie wybrzmiewa ta prosta melodia
Handel wypełnia ją na dwóch akordach

Z rozkołysanej bezkreśnie kolebki
Wypadło na świat i zamilkło
Zrodzone z wysokiej klasy rodziców
Doskonałej jakości dziecko
Milczało tak, chłonąc obrazy i dźwięki
Za które nikt nie chciał zapłaty
Z dziecięcą radością w kolorach tęczy
Odkrywało kolejne światy

Ma za nic układy, układy ma za nic
Ma za nic granice, granice ma za nic
Ma za nic monety, monety ma za nic
Ma za nic
Ma za nic
Ma za nic

Więcej, więcej, więcej
Więcej piniondza muszą mięć
Wół, stary wół nie pamięta, nie pamięta, jak cielęciem był

Brzęczą monety, szeleszczą banknoty w rękach estety
Na targach miernoty, dźwięcznie wybrzmiewa ta prosta melodia
Handel wypełnia ją na dwóch akordach

Gdy mężem się stałem
Wyzbyłem się tego, co we mnie było dziecięce
Kupiłem dom, nabyłem mądrość
I nadal chciałem mieć więcej
Nienasycony i nienauczony
By słuchać mądrości dziecka
Nieprzeliczana na waluty świata
Jest miłość i prostota serca

Władzę podziały majątek cały
Ma za nic
Władzę podziały majątek cały
Ma za nic

Więcej, więcej, więcej
Więcej piniondza muszą mięć
Wół, stary wół nie pamięta, nie pamięta, jak cielęciem był

Mode Xl – Belki De Bizden Biri Lyrics

[Verse 1: Enver]
Cıngar çıkarma cavlarsın hadi yaylan (ne?), kes lan
Buralardan uzasan senin için daha iyi olur
Test voltana paslanan demir kaslanan boynuna oturur
Bas git kurtul yoksa yok satar buralarda postun, adın unutulur
Tadın damaklarda kurutulur, ailenle aran soğutulur

Tuttur bir yol bize uzak ol
Derdini allaha yakın şimdi kaybol
Anladın sen anladın buralara damladın
Anladım peki şimdi niye ağladın?

Farkındamısın ananın kalbini dağladın ama
Babanı babalara bağladın
Bu konuları şimdi bur’da açma bu civarda götü kolla
Ne olur ne olmaz yokla, havayı kokla ve de zonkla

Çık bi’ bak kim kaça ne, ne kadarı
Yarı yarı dedik ama hüpledin kârı

Son bir şans daha verelim ulu orta yerde kalma
Altın anahtarı bana sunma, döneceğim sanma
Non-stop içeriz
Biz hiç kapanmasın vana

Saat beşe on kala vardım randevuma sadık
Ama baktım o da na herifler kalabalık
Yataklık etmedik hiçbirine dostumuzu satmadık
Arkadan laf atmadık

Bin bir dolap ördürdüler ama kanmadık
Neyse bağladım herifleri bi’ şişeyle
İki dubleyede razı ama yolmam her bulduğum kazı

Bozar fiyakayi en laubali yerinden
Ve seni en derinden sarsar

Rant kavgası mı bu
Ama bilemedim çekilemez tafrası
Az kaldi zamanı, duyacağı son sancısı Azat imzalı
Demek ki hesap zamanı

Öpecekler belanı tamam mı?
Dört dakika kırk dört saniye oldu şimdi
Ayakda kaldıysan hadi saklan

Frisco – What It Is Lyrics

[Intro]
Oi, I swear that’s the feds
Oi, put your seatbelt on, fam
Oi, take off your hat, take off your hat

[Hook]
I’m fully legit but the feds
Got me feeling like I done something wrong
You should’ve seen the look on her face
When I told her where I’m from
Everybody in a rat race for the top
Man, it’s the same old song
They wanna skew man, chew, man’s moving sho
They wanna know what I’m on but
Sorry, that’s what it is
Boy Better Know, fam, that’s what it is
Come through, f**k up the ting, no long ting
Rudeboy ting, yeah, that’s what it is
Man are like “nah, fam, don’t diss Frisco
He’s a madman, man know what it is”
I’ve gotta do my ting for my kid
So works haffi run, fam, that’s what it is

[Verse 1]
I’ve got feds behind me and I’m nervous
But I know that I ain’t done nuttin’ wrong
Check the irony, feds getting away with murder
Same old song
Just another day in the jungle
Out here’s like a royal rumble
I’m out here tryna enjoy life
At the same time tryna be humble
Life, I attack that, strap in the backpack
In case man wanna act bad, Boy Better Know
It’s going off like Afghan, man are walking around
Talking about their this and their that, fam
I don’t wanna be part of that gang
Kill an MC with words, hangman
Boot off a soundboy’s head, Van Damme

[Hook]
I’m fully legit but the feds
Got me feeling like I done something wrong
You should’ve seen the look on her face
When I told her where I’m from
Everybody in a rat race for the top
Man, it’s the same old song
They wanna skew man, chew, man’s moving sho
They wanna know what I’m on but
Sorry, that’s what it is
Boy Better Know, fam, that’s what it is
Come through, f**k up the ting, no long ting
Rudeboy ting, yeah, that’s what it is
Man are like “nah, fam, don’t diss Frisco
He’s a madman, man know what it is”
I’ve gotta do my ting for my kid
So works haffi run, fam, that’s what it is

[Verse 2]
Well, when I’m on a riddim
Me, fall off? Well, that’s what it isn’t
Man can’t tek me for no Pot Noodle
If you heard that he boiled me, he didn’t
Oh no, he didn’t say what I thought he said
What? I beg a man speak up
Oh, you’re mad cuh we’re putting UK on the map
And you niggas can’t keep up, move up
I will take MCs to the cleaners
We get it done, you man are just dreamers
2015, didn’t drop nuttin’
Just know I was killing them features
Yeah, cause that’s what it is
I will come see you if that’s what it is
But more time I just do my ting
And get P, my G, cause that’s what it is

[Hook]
I’m fully legit but the feds
Got me feeling like I done something wrong
You should’ve seen the look on her face

Frisco – Invasion Lyrics (feat. Skepta & JME)

[Hook: Frisco]
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, truss

[Verse 1: Frisco]
From the day that I came here backs to the wall, working my brain
Boy Better Know be the family, better know that you can’t come and try break this chain here
Wait there, it’s an invasion
Boy Better Know everything, CDs, T-shirts, SIM cards
You can’t tell Boy Better Know anything
Actually chat to me, get back to me
Naturally, I’m badder than most
Niggas in the backroom bagging up o’s
All over the UK bagging up shows
You man are moist, you man are damp
Hang them man out to dry like a clothesline
You’ll get the dial tone quick for trying to chat shit on my Boy Better Know line

[Verse 2: Jme]
From Boy Better Know touchdown, everything gets enhanced
New shit, new money, new lyrics for the mandem to light up a dance
Trust me, this ain’t no act
Look around you fam, it’s live
So when I say Boy Better Know invasion, I don’t have to tell you twice
Watch me invade, put a BBK sim in your sim tray
Run man over in the beamer, get hit with a whip like Kunta Kinte
I make you forget your name, Toby getting paranormal [?]
Doing this ting from 966 TDK 90 minute takes

[Verse 3: Skepta]
£100,000 is what they gave me
100 flows and they’re all mine
100 fake niggas in rap, 100 broke niggas in grime
I’ve been to jail in foreign countries, nobody here can tell me about crime
‘Cause if I send a Boy Better Know group text, trust me it’s invasion time
So when I say it’s on, then it’s on nigga
Ring the doorbell like ding dong nigga
You don’t want to hear the straps sing a song nigga
Leave a dead body like a stink bomb nigga
I stay low, I’m a ping pong nigga
But still I ball out like Frimpong nigga
Been around the world, that’s why I’ve got a carbon footprint bigger than King Kong nigga

[Hook: Frisco]
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, it’s an invasion
It’s an invasion, truss

Ten Typ Mes – Wjaazd! Lyrics

[Verse 1: Mes]
Skurwysyny, to jest właśnie to, co nazywam wejściem z buta!
Singiel, którego możesz wreszcie słuchać
Ktoś powiedział, że rap podupadł, że jak refren, to dupa
I czuje się jakby ktoś mu wpychał plastik do ucha
Nadciągam horyzonty poszerzyć
Ostatni raper, któremu jeszcze zależy
Ziomy mówią na mnie “Mes”, ex panny “skurwiel”
Mama żałuje, że nie zostałem chirurgiem
Ale ja wolę dostarczać hity hurtem
Choć lepiej zarabiałbym, gdybym miał burdel
Robię włam do Twego radia, mam wytrych
Po to, byś potem dotarł do całej płyty
Mój plan jest chytry, bo na niej jest hardcore, wiem
Nie puszczałoby go radio 66,6 FM
To nie kompromis, to gwałt na rynku
Kiedy skończę, Mezio będzie bał się wyjść z budynku
(Aha! To jest hip-hop! Taa!)

[Hook: Mes]
Kiedy robię ten wjazd, to jest jakbym mówił: “Nie!”
Tym, którzy w kłamstwach gubią się
Lubią mieć brudne ręce, boją się pytań
Dlatego ta gra potrzebuje Typa
Kiedy robię ten szturm, na drodze nie ma przeszkód
Żaden chór nie powstrzyma manifestu
Puść to głośniej, nie daj im zapomnieć
Przybijasz pionę? – Przyłącz się do mnie!

[Verse 2: Mes]
Bieda? Słyszałeś o tym. O hajsie też
Pytasz kto coś nowego odnajdzie? Mes!
Gdybym mógł być Supermanem jeden dzień
Usunąłbym wtedy to frajerstwo w cień
Ale nie mogę, niech zastąpi to słów zasób
Chcesz być Kombii czy Republiką naszych czasów?
Sram na złoto, heh, mogę dojść do miedzi
Rozumiesz? Chodzę do studia zamiast do spowiedzi
Bzdury – ludzie najedli się ich do syta
Nagranych, żeby było za co grubo posypać
A ja patrzę przez mój ’82 rocznik
Daję nadzieję fanom jak strajk w stoczni. Dorośnij!
(Aha, ta, stałeś na baczność czekając na ten album? Spocznij!)

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Mes]
Nawijam o sobie, ale Ty czujesz dreszcze
Twój brat mówi: “prawda”, siostra wierci się na krześle
Trzecia płyta, ale ma siłę debiutu
To jak akupunktura – po prostu wiem, gdzie ukłuć
Dziś młodzież wpada w sieć jak w fetę kiedyś
Myślą, że przez sieć można mieć kobietę, coś przeżyć
To błąd! Po to też nagrywam, by mogli powiedzieć:
“Chcę…” lub “Nie chcę skończyć tak jak on”
Dałem Wam brzmienie, które mi dał Nowy York, potem G-Funk
W górze więcej nowych rąk, a dzisiaj
Kaszlę fałszem, to solo jest jak syrop
Walczę, prawie dwa razy młodszy niż Liroy, sprawdź mnie
Showbiz jest skostniały, mam dość chały
Błyszczę na tle pozostałych
(Aha, 2cztery7, Flexxip – sprawdź!)

[Hook]

[Outro x2: Mes]
Dziewczyno, kiwaj głową, do góry ręce
Po co ręce? To jakbyś sushi jadła widelcem
Tera nie ruszaj się, wyobraź sobie jesteś topielcem
W cumshotach jestem wyborowym strzelcem

Ten Typ Mes – Cygara I Pety Lyrics

[Verse 1: Mes]
Do papierosów jakoś nigdy nie mogłem się przekonać
Jakoś pety nie dały mi spokoju niestety
Zobacz: te dziewczyny i te szlugi
Zwykle nierozłączne, znasz jakąś niepalącą? E, skądże!
Znam dobrze ten mechanizm tych, którzy
Uzależniali się jeszcze naprawdę nie umiejąc palić
Młode typki jarali to, co wszyscy
Dziś są prawie tacy sami, zasiledlają jeden dystrykt
Panny z jednej paczki, każdy mógł je mieć
I miał je jak te szlugi
Zacznij dostrzegać, że więcej jest podobieństw między nimi
Choroby są te same – trafiali do różnych klinik
Palili by być gościem
Innym gościom udowadniać swoją fikcyjną dorosłość
Dziewczyny tkwiły w tej układance
Układ ze smukłą dupą uwypukla bycie samcem

[Hook: Mes]
Cygara jak te piękne kobiety
Szlugi jak te marne dupy
Żebyś wiedział, że jakoś też szanuję monogamię
Jak tak lubisz to lub i fajnie
Cygara jak te piękne kobiety
Szlugi jak te marne dupy
Niektórzy myślą, że wyżej stawiam poligamię
Nie, bynajmniej – ona ma wyłączność na mnie

[Verse 2: Mes]
Sam nie lubiłem szlugów po nich ryj mi blednie
I ktoś poczęstował mnie cygarem gdy zdałem do średniej
To było święto i ten smak bezwiednie przechowałem w głowie
Jako złudzenie, że bezbłędnie
W życiu czuję się i jest tak pięknie
Inni palacze wyglądali przy tym dość mętnie
Czas mijał, wzmacniał więź uzależnień
Oni dobierali sobie damy bez westchnień
Bez pasji jakby ktoś ich zmusił
A ja swoim cygarem nawet nie mogłem się zakrztusić
Dopracowany w każdym szczególe rzadko
Mogłem sobie na nie pozwolić lecz było warto
Powoli odkrywałem ich głębię
A resztę obsrywałem, a one mnie jak gołębie
W obrębie moich myśli jednak zostawały szlugi
Ale wiedziałem, że mnie one nie mogą zgubić

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Mes]
Bóg przestawia daty w kalendarzu
I to do niego po czasie niektórzy mają zarzut
Bo to po latach widzą swoją próżność
Przez którą zaczęli palić, ale jest już za późno
Ich narzeczone, co gorsza matki ich dzieci
Zdają się być wypalone jak te pety
Nie dziw się, byli ze sobą, bo we dwójkę życie mniej boli
To się wymknęło spod kontroli hurtem
Chcieli trochę popierdolić, gdzieś wyjechać
By koleżanki mówiły: “Ona ma faceta, ja – pecha”
Dziś razem ćmią jednego peta
Dla chwili przyjemności wypalają przepaść
Nie tak wyobrażali sobie to, gdy on
Zabrał ją na działkę, zerżnął, poczęstował fajkiem
Jasne, wszyscy tutaj palą i pierdolą:
Ja kiedy chcę, one kiedy muszą, oni kiedy mogą

[Hook]
