Quebonafide – Matcha Latte Lyrics (feat. Masza & Mick Jenkins)

Zimna matcha latte, robię yogę leci gangsta raper
Miałem całe lato skakać w trasie
No a siedzę w chacie, robię kasę na herbacie
Kubek za odwołane show
Kumple mają gorzej bo chcą money, ale skąd?
Moje miasto zawirusowane, ale co?
W głowie chyba już poukładane panie Floyd
Spokojnie robię, co kocham
Za oknem modern holocaust
Na poczcie pozew od Jopa, ale…
Tata Maty to mój adwokat
Także się nie przejmuję wcale
Podlewam rośliny, oglądam anime na Netflixie
W moim teesie XXL, czekam aż słoneczko wyjdzie, bo

Trochę wiało, ale stoję cało
Trochę wiało, ale stoję cało

Zimna matcha latte, rok zamykam klapą jak Alcatel
Legia przejebała z Karabachem, a akurat dałem na nią na Betfanie pakę
Dobrze, że tylko to sto i dobrze, że odkułem się na Roland Garros
Polska radość tu się kończy, mam dość
Bo nawet mefedron ma lepszy skład niż nasz rząd
Spokojnie robię co kocham, za oknem modern holocaust

Na poczcie pozew od Jopa, ale…
Tata Maty to mój adwokat
Jeszcze wyhodowałem chwasty
Typ z mojej wytwórni tłukł kobiety jak ćwiartki
Palę się ze wstydu jak kalifornijskie laski
Dziś mu nie poświęcę nawet milimetra kartki

Trochę wiało, ale stoję cało
Trochę wiało, ale stoję cało

Cold matcha latte, caramel apple spice on my side
We vibin’ out the Sade, know I’m off the blasé
So we on karate, blessed, I can treat a Monday like a Friday
I’ve been looking at the world sideways
Tryna get this money five ways
Just to go on back and forth on highways
Came up hoopin in the gang ways, no driveway
Back on that path no mans, then is no abley
I ain’t made them put their hands up like a robbery
In a minute, I make shawty swing my pray
Only ever stressing ’bout her love and Yahweh
Cold matcha latte, wishin’ we can fly away

Boldy James & The Alchemist – Bernadines Lyrics

[Intro]
It's all your fault, Al (uh uh, uh)
It's all…
Where we at?
Bo Jackson, let's get it (ay, 227)

[Verse 1]
Can't none of y'all mirror me back (at all)
Back to them ol' FILA Runballs, steerin' the Ac (uh huh)
Ain't have a quarter for a gumball out the machine (flat broke)
Was choppin' up them 8-balls with a house full of fiends (let's get it)
Run in and out, then I pull off once I count up the cream (it's all here)
Got Uncle Whoadie takin' calls while I round up the beans (iceman)
Want all the blues and the orange, my niggas so Detroit (hell block)
Taj Mahal told me pull up, he said he on [?]
A smoker came with thirty bucks, gave her a skimpy dime
Told auntie "hurry the f*ck up", she took her sweet time
I pulled off 'fore she made it on, she was takin' too long (where we at?)
Jalisa came at me with nine, gave her two stones (be right back)
For bein' patient, she hate waitin', I hate takin' shorts (I does)
Woke up this morning off the drank, shit had me late for court (drugs)
Four fives and two sixes, threw the V8 in sport (uh huh)
That's two pints, add it up, my niggas drinkin' quarts (what else?)
On hell block, still in the flame, don't make me blast the torch
My PO parked up at my crib, she say I ain't report
Got me depressed
[Chorus]
Murder is a tough thing to digest
30 with the green beam, thuggin' in the projects
Learned to keep them killings clean, had to cover my steps
Kept them Bernadines, knew not to post them guns on the 'net
Streets is watchin'
Murder is a tough thing to digest
It's a slow process, so before you take cuts in that line
Murder is a tough thing to digest
Yeah, you know the rest

[Verse 2]
Eye to the sky, got my head up in the cloud (yeah)
Can hear the concrete crack soon as I step foot on the ground
I been up and runnin', only six and rep McNichols mob
With enough shooters to round up and shut the city down
With ten 47s, ain't no question, we did them niggas foul
Heavy press, my niggas plow, better catch up with your crowd
Grew up around gorillas, dope dealers and young wild niggas
My hitters, they're game with this shit, y'all niggas clout killers
It's Concreatures, two-way
Due-ce siete, rockin piete from the UK on the expressway (where we at?)
On my way to the next play, bumped into Jefe
He went up on the ticket, plus this shit look like it's played with (what's this?)
Spotty in the middle, off-white, without no shine to it (why this shit look like this?)
Was somethin' like a piano, I had to fine-tune it (uh)
Honor student from the university of crime school (Crime U)
Your baby mama used to move the work for me and find blues
Five rules that you must abide when you in the mob (gang)
Never break the oath, bend or fold, never steal or rob
From the La Famil', cross the fam, take it up with God
This mafia shit so for real, I had to pay my tithes
[Interlude]
Don't you want to hear my last words?
I just did
'Chemist, let's get it

[Chorus]
Murder is a tough thing to digest
30 with the green beam, thuggin' in the projects
Learned to keep them killings clean, had to cover my steps
Kept them Bernadines, knew not to post them guns on the 'net
Streets is watchin'
Murder is a tough thing to digest
It's a slow process, so before you take cuts in that line
Murder is a tough thing to digest

Talkshow Boy – Testosterone Lyrics

Thank you all for coming to my shows, you’re sexy
Thanks for queuing my MP3, and representing
At the witching hour, this is what my lover said
She said “come here boy and join me in the army of the dead”
I said thanks to the interstate looks these bands, and help each other with these hands
Thanks to all the record labels whom I came to understand
To all my friends, and the people who I always see
Shit, I love you guys, this one’s for being here, and seeing me

Testosterone, estrogen
Estrogen, testosterone
Testosterone, estrogen
Estrogen, testosterone
Testoste-ro-o-one, the earth, oh
Talkshow boy is back on top

(Representing all the women
Representing all the ladies
Whats the deal, y’all?) x2

Check it out, yeah
Rock solid, rock solid

Top quality, baby
Tip top x2

And everybody shouts
“Come on! Come on!”
(come on! come on!
Come on! come on!)
Let’s grab participation, baby
Might as well enjoy this
And have some f*ckin’ fun
As I slowly climb the echelon
To the UK no. 1

Have we heard from (Talkshow boy)
Some dumb track by (Talkshow boy)
Teenage girls around the world
Get wet all over (Talkshow boy)
Pull yourself close if you wanna swap swe-ea-eat

Testosterone, estrogen
Estrogen, testosterone
Testosterone, estrogen
Estrogen, testosterone
Testoste-ro-o-one, the earth, oh
Talkshow boy is back on top

Check it out, yeah
Rock solid, rock solid
Top quality, baby
Tip top x4

(god damnit)
