Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Zion Lyrics

[Verse 1]
God has given me a job
So I write four-minute songs
I want the world to sing along
Every tribe and every tongue

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Thought I met a girl that was different
But she’s hiding in the filter on her Instagram
Why is everyone somebody else when they get the chance?
I’m just looking for a headline that’s what it says
I’m more afraid of life than I am afraid of death
I used to go for days without leaving bed
They say the Book of Revelation hasn’t started yet
Well I been staring down a beast counting 7 heads

[Chorus]
I thought you really liked me
I guess that I was wrong
‘Till kingdom come, ’till Zion’s sun, I’ll hit that drum
I’m marching on
I thought you really liked me
I guess that I was wrong
‘Till kingdom come, ’till Zion’s sun, I’ll hit that drum
I’m marching on

[Verse 2]
I left my laptop in the rain
Just wanna see the light of day
I lost some songs but that’s ok
There’s just so many things I gotta say

[Pre-Chorus 2]

We been fighting on the way to the promised land
Money just like manna got us separate
Everyone around me always acting like they heaven sent
I know a lot of Africa thinks different
Why’s the preacher flying in a private jet?
Why’s the church running like a business?
I’m feeling like I’m in a big social experiment
I need you more than anything

[Chorus]
I thought you really liked me
I guess that I was wrong
‘Till kingdom come, ’till Zion’s sun, I’ll hit that drum
I’m marching on
I thought you really liked me
I guess that I was wrong
‘Till kingdom come, ’till Zion’s sun, I’ll hit that drum
I’m marching on

[Bridge]
And I couldn’t hear you
And I couldn’t feel you
I prayed for your rescue
Am I on my own?
The heavens are caving
The temple is shaking
I need you to save me (save me, save me)
Save me
Save me

[Outro]
God has given me a job
So I write four-minute songs
I want the world to sing along
Every tribe and every tongue

Pink Sweat$ – Cadillac Drive Lyrics (feat. Price)

[Verse 1 – Pink Sweat$]
Let’s kick back catch a vibe
Let me unwind your mind
Just pretend that tonight, is the rest of our life
Momentary but cool
Feel the vibe between you
Let’s make love just us two
Oh, oh yea

[Chorus – Pink Sweat$]
Cadillac driving no chauffeur
Running my hands all on your curves
Without your gasoline I’d die
Riding through this paradise
Ah, ah

[Verse 2 – Pink Sweat$]
When you touch me girl I come alive
Just say its mine, already know it’s mine
Grown shit, I wanna feel your thighs
Rock with me, Rock with me, Rock with me yea
Slow and steady wanna visualize
All these moments, want em for the rest of my life
Moments add up to time, feel you climb, oh my

[Chorus – Pink Sweat$]
Cadillac driving no chauffeur
Running my hands all on your curves

Without your gasoline, I’d die
Riding through this paradise

[Verse 3 – Price]
Price

I want yo heart but gotta find my soul first
I know all yo hurt, I know all yo pain, I know all yo dirt
Chanel shopping spree? Gucci , Louis V ? I gotta offer more
Salmon over seas, banging in the streets, you’ve seen it all before
I gotta enhance the mood
Switch up the lanes , we mobb
Laying in bed with you, that’s when I became a God
We was up banging Nas
Talking bout Africa trips
The misguided past that we have to forget
Girl we hop in the whip and now we’re just-

[Chorus – Pink Sweat$]
Cadillac driving no chauffeur
Running my hands all on your curves
Without your gasoline I’d die
Riding through this paradise
Ah, ah

Akon Gets Flamed For Collaborating With Tekashi 6ix9ine On “Locked Up Part 2”

Akon has officially signed on as a feature on Tekashi 6ix9ine’s upcoming album.

After claiming that he would not hesitate to hop on a record with Tekashi 6ix9ine earlier this year in April, Akon is actually making music with the rapper turned federal informant, as seen in a new video. Tekashi 6ix9ine seemed excited to share that he was in the studio with the legendary Konvict Muzik singer this weekend.

The “Gooba” rapper took to Instagram on Sunday (June 7) to post a video clip of him and Akon working together on a remix for the latter’s popular smash hit “Locked Up.” The story of the original song, of course, follows Akon’s incarceration and his journey as a convict. Tekashi 6ix9ine, who now has a similar history (just perhaps more highly publicized, disagreeable and controversial) shares his own story on the track around the signature hook.

The two artists are seen bopping to the recording as they laid on the track while seated behind the sound engineer board as their voices blared through the speakers. “LOCKED UP PART 2 IM ON ALBUM MODE. THIS ALBUM GOING CRAZYYYYYYY @akon,” Tekashi 6ix9ine wrote in his caption alongside the post.

LOCKED UP PART 2 IM ON ALBUM MODE ??? THIS ALBUM GOING CRAZYYYYYYY ??? @akon ?????????

A post shared by IM BACK AND THEY MAD (@6ix9ine) on Jun 7, 2020 at 10:16am PDT

While this is a great opportunity for 6ix9ine to make another hit, some fans have expressed disappointment with Akon for agreeing to work with the tattletale rapper. One fan took to Twitter to say, “Me saying I’m disappointed in Akon is an understatement. Man had me screaming OH NA NA NA as a kid and is now out here working with 69,” they wrote. Another fan declared that “Akon is messing up with the culture.”

Interestingly, Akon did give us all a heads up during his interview with DJ Whoo Kid on Instagram Live in April when he admitted that he would be the first to feature on a new 6ix9ine record. “I’ ma feature on that record,” said Akon at the time about working with 6ix9ine on his new album. “Matter fact, I’m about to call Tekashi right now and say ‘yo, T, what we doin’? I’m ’bout to get on that record.’”

Akon expressed empathy for 6ix9ine, explaining that everyone “goes through something in their lives that propels them to do things that they feel are in the best interest of themselves.” He continued, “As a man, you can only respect somebody that does what they think is best for them and their families.” According to Akon, the expected backlash wouldn’t be a detractor for him either because he knows it will help with the overall popularity of the record once it’s out too.

“Listen, I’m me, n***a. You can’t beat me up. I’m getting on that record,” he told DJ Whoo Kid. “That record probably be the hottest record that drop this year because of all that…Just think about all that surrounded this record. Even if you don’t like him. You gon’ get it, download it, out of curiosity.”

Well, Akon is sticking to his word and giving Tekashi 6ix9ine a music collaboration. Moreover, he’s arming the 24-year-old rapper with one of his biggest hits to remix. Do you think this will be Tekashi 6ix9ine’s biggest collab to date?

Akon really took time away from making an IRL Wakanda in Senegal to make a song with a pedophile culture vulture with 26-inch rainbow bundles, c'est triste https://t.co/WeoyzYZ4Dv

Oscar D’leon – Bravo De Verdad Lyrics

CORO ::.( No se tire compay hágame caso
Mire que se va caer )

Si de pelea se trata yo vengo bien preparado
Con mi navaja en la mano
Tirando de medio lado
Yo vengo de monte adentro
Donde los guapos son guapos
Aquí no se come cuento
Sangre corre por doquiera
No se me tire compay
Si se tira lo reviento

REP CORO

En africa yo peleé
Con 25 leones
A un oso polar maté
De un azote en los riñones
En amazonas me vi
Con más de 1000 amazones

A un cocodrilo aplasté a batalla y a pisotones
Y en altamar me fajé
Con 50 tiburones …

REP CORO

Stu Larsen – I Will Be Happy And Hopefully You Will Be Too (Resolute Album)

I wanna house in the country
I wanna house by the sea
It doesn’t really matter where I live

As long as you’re with me

[?]Kyero Habla espaniol
I wanna learn Japanese
I don’t really mind if I can’t say a word
As long as you’re with me

I wanna visit South America
And maybe Africa too
It doesn’t really bother me just where I go
As long as I’m with you

I wanna do karaoke
And hear you sing a song or two
It doesn’t really matter if you can’t stay in tune
As long as I’m with you

If I’m with you babe
I will be happy and hopefully you will be too
If I’m with you babe
I will be happy and hopefully you will be too

I wanna holiday in Cuba
Or Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
I really could be anywhere at all on earth
As long as you’re with me

I wanna dive into the ocean
And swim in the Caribbean sea
It’ll never really bother me just where I am
As long as you’re with me

If you’re with me babe
I will be happy and hopefully you will be too
If you’re with me babe
I will be happy and hopefully you will be too

I hope it’s not too hard to believe it
I hope you know that it’s true
And I would be the happiest man alive
As long as I’m with you

Maybe we’ll end up on an island
In a cottage with an ocean view
I really could be anywhere in this world
As long as I’m with you

I really could be anywhere in this world
As long as I’m with you
I really could be anywhere in this world
As long as I’m with you babe
I will be happy and hopefully you will be too

Prince – Mountains

Once upon a time in a land called Fantasy
Seventeen mountains stood so high
The sea surrounded them and together they would be
The only thing that ever made you cry
You said the devil told you that another mountain would appear
Every time somebody broke your heart
He said the sea would one day overflow with all your tears
And love will always leave you lonely

I say it’s only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if you just believe (oh, yeah)
It’s only mountains
And the sea
There’s nothing greater, you and me

Once upon a time in a haystack of despair
Happiness sometime hard to find (yeah)
Africa divided, hijack in the air
It’s enough to make you want to lose your mind

I say it’s only mountains and the sea
Love will conquer if you just believe (oh, yeah)
It’s only mountains
And the sea
There’s nothing greater, oh-oh, you and me

Guitars and drums on the one, huh, whoo
Whoo
(Bobby on the drum, ah)

It’s only mountains (oh, yeah)
And the sea (and the girls sing)
There’s nothing greater, you and me

Starvation, ow

Allan Kingdom – Don’t Push Me

[Verse 1]
I do not really got nothing to say
I check my balance and order a lobster and steak
I am from Canada, I am from Africa, I am from so many states
So many amateurs, nobody pampered us
Nobody showed me a plate
I thought I wanted a high
I thought I wanted attention from all of the peasants
I put on a pedestal, why
They got the pendants with all of the bezels and i-ice
I know we young but we living to die
I know I used to be sprung on you baby but I fell in love with your lies
Fuck cameras, I want the Phantoms
I want it my way, will they understand ’em
All of the action, all of the passion
All of the shit they say is everlasting, no
International
I could be irrational
Least I’m fashionable
And my cash on low, yeah my cash on low

[Hook]
Then I think about the money
Then I think about the honeys
Then I think about the bubbly
Then I think about the cake
They used to think I was funny
Hey lord way above me
I only care if you love me
Then I think about the cake

[Hook]
Then I think about the money
Then I think about the honeys
Then I think about the bubbly
Then I think about the cake
They used to think I was funny
Hey lord way above me
I only care if you love me
Then I think about the cake

[Verse 2]
Nobody told me that growing is always gon’ hurt
Nobody told me that I shouldn’t take it so personal
Nobody told me the moment a nigga done went and dispersed
Is it a blessing or is it a, is it a curse, you know
I’m from the land of the lakes
I knew that she wanna fuck me and she fell in love when she saw me with Ye
I used to save all my shawtys, when I was a shorty I lost all the capes
Tony the Tiger but covered in apes
Back in the day no one thought I was great
I just been chilling, plotting on some building
Might sign a deal so that I can feel the feeling
Sitting on a rooftop all in my conscience
I need a new job that can fill my pockets though
What’s popping though
I stay on this often though
I been on a roll, I was on honor roll
Now I’m on the road

[Hook]
Then I think about the money
Then I think about the money
Then I think about the money
Then I think about the cake

[Outro]
I know that you can’t relate
And I think about the cake
Then you think about the pussy
Please nigga don’t push me
You been thinkin’ ’bout the wrong things
I been thinkin’ ’bout doing things
I been thinkin’ ’bout improving things
I been thinkin’ ’bout moving things
You been thinkin’ ’bout the pussy

Chronixx – Selassie Children (Chronology Album)

[Verse1]
Been laughed at, scrutinised
To the point where I had to ask who am I
Then I remember what they do to Christ
He was nailed to a cross and crucified
Now that the light came to me
I wonder if they’re gonna do the same to me
And when the truth hits painfully
That’s when you know if you’re really who you claim to be

[Pre-Chorus]
For so long we’ve been denied
Rejected and brutalised
But jah children shall win the war
Cos we know who we are

[Chorus]
We’re selassie I children
Haile selassie children
We are Ethiopians by blood
Africa was born in us, selassie children
Haile selassie children

We know who we are

[Verse 2]
Young boy threw away his comb
So his papa told him find a different home
Never come back, hold your own
Bout you’re a Rasta, I wish I never know you
Rejected for the life he choose
Cast out, all alone
The stone that the builder man refused
Shall be the head cornerstone

[Pre-Chorus]
Soon they will realise
That we’ve been reading between the lines
Remember we foretold the war
You never forget who we are

[Chorus]
Tell them, we’re selassie children
Haile selassie children
We are Ethiopians by blood
Africa was born in us

[Verse 2]
Young girl gotta face the worst
Cos her mother just took a look in her purse
She find a clay kutchie and some holy herbs
And the wise mind of haile i the first
Mama say young girl you’re losing your mind
Did you get these things from Satan
She say no mama I got the kutchie from jah9
And the wise mind from i nation

[Pre-Chorus]
Please mama, don’t scrutinise
Take this book and give it a try
Let this herb open up your eyes
Experience the wonders of Rastafari

[Chorus]
Haile selassie children
We are haile selassie children
We are Ethiopians by blood
Africa was born in us
Haile selassie children

[Outro]
The battle will be hard
Haile selassie children
Still we never stall
Selassie children
Deh ya back a wall
Haile selassie children
Still di Natty never fall
Haile selassie children
Oh coral garden
Selassie children
Look at pinnacle
Selassie children
Still we deh ya now
Selassie children
Never giving up
Selassie children
Take no heart Gil pain
Selassie children
Fight the fights in vain
Selassie children
Even if the battle stains
