Fresh indie-electronic duo Slender Dan, composed of Heather Dickson and Patrick Ahern, are tackling the Seattle scene with their single “Pay With a Gift” and accompanying music video through KEXP public radio station. 

The single is the successor of their debut six-track EP, The Waking Life, released in March, whose kaleidoscopic visual component allowed the duo’s art to transcend sound. Dickson mentioned the EP as an exploration of a variety of instrospections including “the fear of an unlived life.” Slender Dan is certainly concerned with exploring all of life’s sublime underbelly.

It seems The Waking Life is a metamorphosis broken down into six stages in six tracks: life, death, individual man, pause, community, and transcendence. The EP is founded on the two opening tracks, “Cycle” and “Fatal Vision,”, which allude to both the beginning and end of life and range between droning repetition on “Cycle” and haunted, pulsing imagery on “Fatal Vision.” 

Now with these time barriers set up, Slender Dan begins to explore everything that happens in between, the plight of man alone and in relationship and, finally, man in a final, central destination on “Through the Door.” What doubles as a chronicle of the duo’s experiences on psilocybin, this trip-hop track finishes the EP with these ringing words: “It’s so simple /It’s ok now/ In the middle.” 

It is fitting that, after an escapade through life’s most pressing concerns, Slender Dan would end in the middle — a full cycle and you’re back where you started; Human existence is rife with dissatisfaction.

This brilliant culmination back in March set the stage for Slender Dan’s upcoming return with their debut single, “Pay With a Gift.” The eerie anatomical-oriented accompanying music video continues the outfit’s fixation on the phases of being as a living, breathing form. The track’s bass hauntingly mickmicks the rhythm of breath entering and exiting human lungs, made explicitly clear by the track’s video that explores the intersection of nature and human organs — life-giving entities. 

While the song is lyrically centered on the giving and depleting of human emotional resources, the sonics track a watery melody that lets life flood the synth-driven atmosphere. Slender Dan are a duo operating in an intentional sonic and stylistic niche and are prepared to breathe new life into the electronic, synth-wave landscape.

By Hannah Means-Shannon

Icelandic band VAR spent a year creating their aptly titled recent album, The Never-Ending Year, a title which for many of us will seem eerily resonant.

They followed this by planning a video recording of a live play session featuring four songs from the album filmed at Orgelsmidjan, Iceland’s only pipe organ workshop, and a location very near to the hearts of the band members. The audio recording of the live play session proved compelling enough to release on its own as the EP Live at Orgelsmidjan, and now the video of the session has also been released on Audiotree. 

While the album itself, and also the EP soundtrack, offer very interesting listening experiences, seeing the video components for the session really brings a fuller understanding of this special location, what it means to the band, and the ways in which the band members work together in performance. As the band admits, too, the performance of these songs is unique and takes different twists and turns than the original studio recordings, and seeing that performed in real time is inspiring, as is the scenic footage included to give us a sense of the venue’s location. VAR’s Júlíus Óttar Björgvinsson kindly agreed to answer some questions for us about this multi-media experience and putting together The Never-Ending Year

Hannah Means-Shannon: The video of the performance is really beautiful, visually. Was it important to you that the visual elements should be as beautiful and authentic as the experience of the music? Was the band involved in giving opinions on the video?

Júlíus Óttar Björgvinsson: It was of course important for us to make it beautiful visually, and that’s why we asked a really talented man called Baltasar Breki Samper to do the videos for us. He is a filmmaker and has a great eye for detail. We put our faith in him and we didn’t know how it was going to look until he sent us the videos and he delivered them beautifully, so he gets all the credit for that.

HMS: I feel like the video takes a different approach for each song, suggesting the differences between the songs, too. “By The Ocean” opens with greeting the ocean, for instance, and in “Moments”, we see drone footage of landscape and winter views. Do you think there are correspondences between the visual approach and the songs?

JOB: “By The Ocean” was not from the same session. That was something Júlíus did with Eiður, the producer, and his wife on a nice summer day for fun, but we felt it fit very well with the other videos and it sounded really good, so we decided to include it with the other songs for the EP. The other visual shots are ideas from Breki, which he married beautifully with the feelings of the songs.

HMS: I read that you felt the recordings at Orgelsmidjan brought out differences between this music and the album recordings, and that made you willing to release the EP. What were some of the major differences that you noticed?

JOB: We love working in the studio recording tracks, one instrument at a time and then digging deep into sounds and overlay. But when we play all together, we get a very different energy, much more rough, and every beautiful mistake stays in. We have even talked about doing the next album with a much more live feel to it, similar to the EP.

HMS: I think the track order on the video is actually different from the track order on the EP. For you, what does presenting the songs in a different order bring out in the two different mediums?

JOB: The reason is mainly that we felt it would look better visually to have “By The Ocean” first on the video as it felt more of an opening on the video, with me (Júlíus) going in and playing alone, and then the rest of us joining in for the rest of the songs.

HMS: When you are playing live, whether for a recording or for a performance with an audience, do you have specific goals that are different from studio recording, or do you prefer to stay close to a studio recording experience?

JOB: Playing for an audience is always different, and as we don’t usually use playback during our live performances. They can be a little more rough around the edges. Sometimes we feel like there is something missing when practicing some of the songs, just the four of us. Then we usually just crank it up to 11 and put our hearts into it and try and make everything come together. We are not trying to make it sound like the album at all. And in the end, it’s all about doing your very best and doing it from your heart.

HMS: Can you tell us about the venues in Iceland where you like to play live?

JOB: The venues have changed a lot over the years. Places keep closing and new ones replace them, and some of our favourites are no longer open. We really like to play venues where you can really be close to the audience, feeding of their energy and creating an intimate experience.

HMS: How did you come to have a rehearsal space at the Orgelsmidjan and how does that tie into the location’s history?

JOB: Egill and I’s father is an organ builder and I’ve been working with him at the organ workshop since I was a kid. We had a little corner at the workshop where we could practice at first, but through the years we have been bringing more and more instruments and all sorts of things to the workshop, so we take up more and more space there, much to our father’s joy, hopefully. It is a very nice space by the ocean and that has been a big influence on us. We love to do everything there, practice, record, and even do shows.

HMS: How did you create and record an album called The Never-Ending Year before the actual never-ending-year happened for the world in 2020 due to the pandemic? Was there an idea behind this title about the experience of time?

JOB: The process of making the album, from recording the first demos to the finished album took a year. So the title of the album is mainly a reference to that year, a process that seemed to never end. The title is also a reference to an older song from our album Vetur.

HMS: Can you tell us about your working relationship with Eiður Steindórsson, who I know did the audio for the video, later EP? I see that he worked on The Never Ending Year also. How did you start working together and how would you describe his musical way of thinking?

JOB: We have been fans of Eiður and all the music he has made for a long time. He has been in bands here in Iceland that we are big fans of, like Future Future and Vera. We thought Eiður’s sound would be perfect for the first song that we recorded for the album, so we asked him if he was interested in recording one song with us.

Working with Eiður was so nice musically and we also made good friends with him during the recording, so asking him to record an album with us was kind of a logical next step. He was really interested in doing an album with us, joined in from the beginning of the writing process, and produced and recorded the album.

Eiður is a perfectionist and really professional in every way and that is why we always call on him when we are recording something.

HMS: I see that The Never Ending Year was released with vinyl variants as well as in other formats. How does the band feel about the vinyl format? Is it something that ties into selling merchandise at performances, or is it more about online fan requests?

JOB: A vinyl release is something that we really wanted to do, and when John at Spartan Records showed interest in doing that, we said, “Yes” right away. The variants that he made are absolutely beautiful and we are really happy with the reception it got.

HMS: On the band’s Instagram account, I saw a video from November 2020 where some metal was being melted in a pot on a stove. I’m very curious about what was going on there. Can you tell us about where this is and what happened?

JOB: I was making some Christmas ornaments at the organ workshop by melting old organ pipes and putting them into a new form.

HMS: Also on Instagram, I saw that you (Júlíus) were in a band that released an album when you were 14 years old. That makes me wonder what styles of music you all were interested in at a young age and what kinds of music you made prior to VAR.

JOB: We have all been in many different bands since we were young, and we were trying to make music similar to what we were listening to at the time, which was everything from Metal to Punk to Emo. We got really excited when we saw that our label, Spartan Records, was releasing albums with bands that included artists that we listened to a lot in our youth, such as Mountain Time with Chris Simpson from Mineral, and Assertion with William Goldsmith from Sunny Day Real Estate. Being on the same label as them is really a dream come true, as they had a big influence on us growing up.

The Never-Ending Year is a little nod back to those roots, and you can even hear some elements from the album in that post on Instagram.

HMS: When you were writing songs for The Never-Ending Year, was this a process of intentionally sitting down and writing songs in a very focused way, or do you usually create songs by working different fragments together and finding ways to combine ideas?

JOB: We usually never sit down with the goal of writing new songs. Our songs kind of happen when the four of us meet up with our instruments. Someone brings up an idea that he has been working on, or he has maybe just a little snippet that sounds good, and we finish them together, assembling the parts like a puzzle.

HMS: Is it ever your intention to combine musical elements in ways that the audience might not be expecting? I noticed that in the songs “Highlands”, it ranges from a gentle opening into an almost Hard Rock style guitar breakdown and has plenty of indie Rock moments, too. Or is it more about creating moods and developments in the song?

JOB: We don’t think much about what people will think of our music, we just make songs we like and we enjoy playing. Coming from different musical backgrounds maybe has a role to play in how our songs come together in the end, with elements of each member shining through. If other people like the songs, we are really happy.

HMS: What are some things that are helpful and what are some things that are challenging for you, as musicians, about what international audiences might expect from an Icelandic band? Are there ways in which you find that empowering or limiting?

JOB: We don’t feel like people are expecting something special from us because we are from Iceland, but people might categorize us to a certain level. Coming from Iceland can be more helpful than not, and it definitely draws some people’s attention, as there are a lot of great bands that come from here and we are proud of all the great music from here.

Green Day Releases New Single ‘Pollyanna’ and Confirms Hella Mega Tour Dates

Popcaan Assembles Unruly Camp For “Solid Focus Riddim” EP Ft. Zamunda, Furnace & Valiant

Popcaan assembled his Unruly camp for a new EP, Solid Focus Riddim.

Jamaican deejay Popcaan is no stranger to making hits. He has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as Vybz Kartel and Beenie Man locally, and Megan Thee Stallion, Drake, and Tory Lanez internationally. The deejay has not only managed to cultivate a loyal fanbase but also a loyal crew who all represent his Unruly outfit.

Last year, Popcaan told Ebro during an interview on Hot 97 that he was working on a project that would feature most members of his Unruly camp. The deejay recently revealed that he would be releasing a new EP this summer titled Solid Focus Riddim. Sadly, the short tracklist doesn’t fit the bill of the project he touted last year. Nonetheless, the 4-track EP that will feature mentees Zamunda, Valiant and, Furnance is something to look forward to. The brand new EP is his second collection of songs to be released this year.

Terror Family Production has full control over this one and is ensuring that Popcaan’s “Survivor,” Zamunda’s “Preserve My Life,” Valiant’s “Poverty Get Away,” and Furnace’s “Unafraid Life” are all sounding as they should.

Producer Courtney Samuels, better known as Stamma T of Terror Family Production, was pleased with and motivated by the way the fans received Popcaan’s “Survivor,” which is the first release from the project. He believes that the initial support will continue for the remainder of the project that provides the other members of the clan with a medium to showcase their unique talent.

In a recent press release, Samuels indicated that he considers each of the tracks to be one of a kind and thinks that the artists were cohesive in their collaboration. He believes the EP will certainly be well-loved.

The 4-track project is being distributed by internationally renown EMPIRE Distribution based in San Francisco, California. TFP Label executive Mark Lawrence commended the quality of the new voices featured on the EP as profound even though they are not as experienced.

Normally more dancehall-oriented, these talented individuals highlight just how well-rounded they are by opting for a more reggae fusion type beat with acoustic guitar, in contrast to their usual aggressive tone. The songs on the EP collectively focus on being thankful, staying positive, and staying true to yourself. The project is worth listening to, whether you are a die-hard fan of reggae or dancehall music or a new listener to either genre.

Review: Jason Mraz Makes A Night to Remember at The City National Grove in OC

H.E.R. Calls On Reggae Artists For Her New EP

Grammy Award-winning soul singer H.E.R. has landed in Jamaica as she works on an upcoming reggae-inspired EP as well as a song on DJ Khaled’s upcoming album “Khaled Khaled.”

The soulful singer who collaborated with Bob Marley’s grandson Skip Marley on their hit song “Slow Down” which was nominated for a Grammy, said her EP will feature other reggae artists from within the island.

“Me and DJ Khaled have a song together that I’m really excited for people to hear, and he wanted to shoot the video here. My EP that I’ll be releasing is gonna feature a lot of reggae artistes. It’s gonna be dope,” she said to local newspaper, Jamaica Observer.

H.E.R says after making “Slow Down” she was inspired to make Reggae music, especially since she has always loved the genre.

“I felt like Slow Down was one song that made me even want to dive into reggae even deeper. I’ve always loved reggae, and now I’m about to do a whole reggae project,” she began. “My EP is definitely coming this year. I’m still finishing it up and making sure its great before releasing it.”

“Slow Down” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best R&B song. The song was among several nominations for H.E.R. (acronym for Having Everything Revealed), who was born Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson at the Grammys. She eventually walked away with Song of the Year for 2021 for her song “I can’t breathe.”

The song was centered around the Black Lives Matter protests following the death of George Floyd, whose last words were “I can’t breathe,” as a police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knees on his neck for nine minutes. An ongoing trial of Chauvin has found that his actions led to the death of Floyd.

According to H.E.R, the ensuing protests and social upheaval weighed heavy on her, and the win for her song was unexpected.

“It’s such a big deal and an honour. I didn’t expect to win it, and there were so many amazing artistes in the same category. When I heard the announcement, I was super surprised. The [song’s] message, it really came from my own personal anxiety and looking at the world around me and my perspective of the world and what was going on in the summer of 2020 and the protests in America,” she said.

“I couldn’t really believe that people listened to the song and it gave them perspective. It really means the world to me just because it’s an important message and also very personal to me.”

Meanwhile, H.E.R has not revealed who the artists are who will feature on her EP, but it seems likely that DJ Khaled is lining up the links among the best of Reggae and Dancehall. The EP is expected to be released later this year.

Vershon Confirms Deal With Warner Music UK & Drops New EP “Only One”

Dancehall entertainer Vershon has recently teamed up with UK hit-making gang FaNaTix for his first project with Warner Music (UK) via its Parlophone musical arm.

Vershon, known predominantly for his catalog of conscious songs, has offered fans a reminder that he is also able to blend various elements into his music. The project features the likes of Turf President Busy Signal, UK Grime rapper Chip, formerly Chipmunk; Trillary Banks; and Y Cee.

A majority of the tracks on the project cater to the ladies. Chip offers his assistance on “Reality,” as both men explain just why they love and adore women who sport their natural features and retain their beauty, whether online or in reality. “Whisper,” “Stick By Me,” and the fast-paced dance number “Shake It Up,” round out the cuts for the females. “Original” shows that Vershon also has a pretty grimy side to him.

Fans got a taste of that version of Vershon during his high profile lyrical face-off with Jahmiel. The two are no longer beefing after Jahmiel extended a peace offering as a part of his journey back to his more spiritual nature. “Thingz” featuring Busy Signal packs ingredients which have helped to shape Vershon’s prior hits such as “Inna Real Life,” “Ruff Up The World,” “On and Off Switch,” “Used to Hungry,” “Mercy A God,” and “Outside.”

Vershon / IG @vershonmusic

In a recent press release, Vershon spoke on his 2019 signing as well as how his second EP came about.

“I did an EP independently in 2017 called One More Day. So now, working with FaNaTiX. It’s new. Signing with Parlophone is also new because I’ve never signed a record deal. So that’s why I decided why not just put out an EP instead of one song so it’s a body of music,” he said.

The 3-man team at FaNaTiX music has earned their space in the musical sphere with hits from the likes of Stylo G, Vybz Kartel, Nicki Minaj, Popcaan, Giggs, among other top urban acts. Vershon explained just how his brand new EP came to be exclusively produced by the UK-based trio and how British award-winner and soul pioneer Plan B assisted with “Stick By Me.”

“It’s my third release from my new EP and was created whilst working with producer artist team The FaNaTiX. The FaNaTiX were in Montego Bay running a writing camp and on one of these occasions, Plan B was there working with them, they introduced us and encourage him to get involved in our session. Plan B joined us at the table with a bunch of laptops, a microphone set up and a room full of vibes and energy,” Vershon shared with Wonderland Music Magazine.

The EP has been receiving heavy rotation since its release on March 05, 2021. While speaking on his signing to the label, which has housed the likes of The Beatles, Queen, Duran Duran, Tina Turner, Roxette, and The Pet Shop Boys, the Jamaican entertainer shared how optimistic he was about the move. “Warner Music is an established international label, so that is an excellent move for me. I can see where things can happen internationally for my career,” he said.

Usain Bolt Readies Debut EP & Plans To Take Dancehall Career International

Olympian Usain Bolt is known worldwide for his athletic feats on the track. However, in the past few months, he seems content since his retirement to hang up his spikes from one track to start laying down some musical ones instead.

In an interview with Zip, he explained that he is preparing to drop some new tracks, and he also divulged the impending release of his 1st EP. Usain Bolt expressed that he is quite serious about music, and it’s his goal to be not only relevant in the Jamaican market but also the international one.

“Well music, music-wise we are working on some new riddims to drop out to drop, soon, knowing the whole pandemic we’re not trying to rush anything we’re taking our time to make sure the music comes out at the right time so that’s the focus we also have an EP that we are working on so that should be something interesting and also to look out for,” he mentioned.

He continues: “That’s the major goal yuh nu to try to get not only dominate the Jamaican market but also to get into the international market, but as I say earlier it takes time we’re just trying to get a foothold, trying to make people understand that we’re not just here joking around we are serious about the music so we’re just gonna take our time just like in track and field, it’s all about its work and dedicating and just taking our time. We don’t want to rush into anything make any mistakes so we wanna take our time we will get there we believe in ourselves and we believe in the product we put out there.”

This revelation is certainly met with shock and awe by some, while others find it to be no surprise. The legendary track star is definitely determined in his endeavors as he seems to not let his efforts be thwarted by negative comments, even if they are taken from the mouths of popular entertainers. Just a few weeks ago Usain teased his new single, “Living The Dream,” which features his long-time friend and manager Nugent’ NJ’ Walker on his Instagram page. Usain Bolt captioned that post, “Ok my Ppl I understand my verse flew by so fast. I wonder if it’s because I’m the fastest man alive. Ok for the next song I’m going to try slow down my verse so u’ll can hear.”

A post shared by Usain St.Leo Bolt (@usainbolt)

Unfortunately, it seems Dancehall artiste Popcaan did not like what he heard regardless of the pace, and he was not shy about making his opinion known.

“Wid all due respect legend, me feel like you fi just help up some youth wid real musical talent! Them dey ya nuff. NJ a mi fam, but please just give some hungry youth wey actually have the talent tha platform deh,” Popcaan commented.

It is unknown if this left bad blood between the two, but Popcaan clearly still got love for Usain as he has given Usain props in his two most recent songs, “Win” and “Medal.” Since his retirement from Track & Field, Bolt has gone on to start his family with the birth of a baby daughter last year. With this said, Bolt is no stranger to music and entertainment. From his historic win at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, where his dancing styles and moves were copied worldwide as his signature stance, to french company G.H Mumm selecting him as their Chief entertainment officer back in 2016. In 2019, he launched his Olympe Rose champagne and also introduced the world to his first riddim by the same name.

It has long been hinted that he would be doing more music projects as his love of music is well known. He has even in the past taken over the turntables at popular night clubs in Kingston, so this passion seems to be here to stay. His fans are now anxiously awaiting the release of his upcoming EP.

Vybz Kartel & Sikka Rymes Drops “Dirty John Crow” Video Off ‘Dancehall Royalty’

Vybz Kartel released the “Dirty John Crow” music video in tandem with his new EP Dancehall Royalty.

The first album of 2021 by dancehall mogul Vybz Kartel is available to listen to now. The deejay who has been promoting the project all week, released a music video for one of the tracks from the EP titled “Dirty John Crow”. The Sikka Rymes-assisted track is an upbeat jam with a hardcore delivery of sexually explicit rhymes.

“Mi jus roll down yuh panty so gently / Set yuh pon yuh belly watch yuh p***y looking at me / So mi force up mi c***y till it buck inna yuh belly,” Kartel deejays on the new track.

The music video has a dark undertone with Sikka Rymes appearing as a seemingly devious priest. In the opening scene, the deejay arrives holding a lit candle and accompanied by an eerie group of women who are scantily-clad in full black and fishnet stockings.

The make-up and costume design likened the video vixens to the devil’s spawns and it seems Sikka Rymes is the leader. A hearse serves as a prop in one morbid scene where they mysteriously approach a black casket. Alas, the mood abruptly changes as the women soon begin to gyrate their rumps and perform provocative dances while giving the camera sultry looks – something a bit more typical of Vybz Kartel visuals.

Dancehall Royalty features four other tracks: “Titanium Steel”, “My Own World”, “Popular” and “Yea You”. In addition to Sikka Rymes, Renee 6:30, Likkle Addi, and Likkle Vybz all guest star on the project. As Vybz Kartel announced to fans around midnight when he dropped off the new visuals, the EP is now available in digital stores including Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify and more.

Yung Lixo – Sake Lyrics

[Refrão]
Sake, sake, mano, cê não sabe
Estilo Kimosabe, dando tiro nos covarde
Então, não vale, vale, mano, cês nem vale
Te dei muito tempo, mas agora já é tarde, mano
Sake, sake, mano, cê não sabe
Estilo Kimosabe, dando tiro nos covarde
Então, não vale, vale, mano, cês nem vale
Te dei muito tempo, mas agora já é tarde, mano

[Verso 1]
Quer burrice? Vou te dar porrada, burro
Cês é tudo vagabundo, num ‘guenta nem dez segundo
Gira o mundo e gira a bolsa, mano, vai lavar a louça
Sai da porra da internet, han, e vê se cala a boca
Cês não sabe de nada e eu já tô cansado
Fica falando merda pa’ ganhar seus dez centavos
Fala, fala pra caralho, faz porra nenhuma
O tempo que tu gasta dava pa’ tomar na bunda
E nunca, nunca mais olha no meu olho
Confiança é pra poucos, pros tolos
E todos que cruzarem teu caminho vão sofrer
Porque tua falsidade te impede de crescer
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Refrão]
Sake, sake, mano, cê não sabe
Estilo Kimosabe, dando tiro nos covarde
Então, não vale, vale, mano, cês nem vale
Te dei muito tempo, mas agora já é tarde, mano

[Verso 2]
Sua gang é cheia de membro, mas todos tem dez anos
Irmão, já tô sem tempo, não me atrasa falando
Muito foda suas roupas, muito foda seu inglês
Mas pelo amor de Deus, não lança mais nenhum EP

[Pré-Refrão]
Pulo, levanto meus pés
Chute na boca pra tu ver qualé’
Engole seus dente chamando os gambé
Pra te salvar quando a gang vier
Pulo, levanto meus pés
Chute na boca pra tu ver qualé’
Engole seus dente chamando os ‘gambé’
Pra te salvar quando a gang vier

[Refrão]
Sake, sake, mano, cê não sabe
Estilo Kimosabe, dando tiro nos covarde

Trepac – Elefant Lyrics

[Vers 1]
De si’r jeg’ blevet lidt tolerant
De si’r mit hater game er blevet en smule tamt
De si’r jeg’ pludselig holder mig i ro
Hver gang et fjollet lille crew der’ fuldt af sjoller’ toner frem
De sir’ jeg’ gået gennem en forvandling
Og si’r det skal være virkelig virkelig wack før jeg antænder
De sir’ jeg ikk hader på nogen
At jeg’ er en bedre person, og ikk en sur gammel mand længer’
Hvabehar? Må jeg bede om mine himmelblå
Jeg’ stadigvæk en hidsig ronkedor der sviner bittesmå
Banditter når de spiller rå, ikk noget at misforstå
Jeg hater stadigvæk på hvert et hit de hitter på
Hankat – er stadig sur, stadig mad vrissen
Flår dem op af sandkassen, sender dem i kanvassen
For mange rappere der har sniffet af propan gassen
Føler mig som et geni, der er havnet i special klassen
For de her rollinger er f**king blæste
Alt for defekte, magter ikk at holde det ægte
Klart at jeg ikk holder med det
Men tænder grillen, bringer stadig T-bones til både luderdrenge og sjollerknægte
Jeg slutter legen med et udråbstegn
Verbal kugleregn når skufler de bli’r skudt i kajen
Står stadigvæk og buh’er af jeres autotune og grime
For jeg bærer stadig nag på kulturens vegne

[Omkvæd]
Jeg holder med hvad scenen kan
Tjekker stadig hvert et vers fra hver en dilettant
I’ stadig wack – ingen skills og ingen kant
Tro ikk I’ glemt, jeg husker som en elefant
Jeg holder med hvad scenen kan
Tjekker stadig hvert et vers fra hver en dilettant
I’ stadig wack – ingen skills og ingen kant
Tro ikk I’ glemt, jeg husker som en elefant

[Vers 2]
Vi har tjekket jeres seneste track
Idéforladt og mega plat i en kedelig collab
Jeg holder øje med scenen, har hørt hvert eneste cat
Tjekker jeres Soundcloud og Youtube – det hele er wack!
I har ikk lært hvordan man rimer endnu
Så jeg, stadig klar på at svine dit crew
Og slå jeres linjer itu, yeah
Jeg kommer stadig til jeres battles, holder masken mens jeg griner i smug
I’ stadigvæk en samling usædvanligt ubegavede tåber
Råber på respekt selvom alt hvad I har lavet skuffer
Så jeres fad i doper
Og dukker stadig op til hvert at jam i holder udelukkende for at hade på dig
Stadig ikk ydmyg
Mig og mit crew vi flækker stadig over EP’en du droppede på din lydsky
For den var dødsyg
Så lad din lidenskab for rapmusik få fred og slip den fri, du skal nok møde en ny
Yo de her typer ku’ ha’ valgt at stop’ men de er alt for f**ked
Så jeg pisser stadig, mit territorium af når hvalpene de galper op
Skafottet her har hverken gabestokke eller galjer nok
Jeg finder rebet frem og strammer løkken
Cutter deres internet og konfiskerer slangebøssen
De kan put, deres lorterap tilbage i skraldebøtten
For de stinker men de gi’r mig selvtillid – så tak for støtten!

[Omkvæd]
Jeg holder med hvad scenen kan
Tjekker stadig hvert et vers fra hver en dilettant
I’ stadig wack – ingen skills og ingen kant
Tro ikk I’ glemt, jeg husker som en elefant
Jeg holder med hvad scenen kan
Tjekker stadig hvert et vers fra hver en dilettant
I’ stadig wack – ingen skills og ingen kant
Tro ikk I’ glemt, jeg husker som en elefant

[Outro]

Er ved at kløjes i det pis, gi’ mig høj kvalitet

Pete Flux & Parental – What They Need Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My head’s heavy with words, I never sleep
I lay awake, rustling hard between the sheets
The funny thing is I’m an EP deep
And these niggas swear rhyming is the easy street
Sick bars, got quarantined by CDC
Spit at legendary clips, call em CP3s
Whoa, that’s an effortless point of reference
Most would say the country’s run by the president
I say the ones not living in the present tense
To keep it real in the face of greed’s prevalence
Hip hop is hard work with little recompense
I jumped a hurdle now I gotta leap a second fence
In a row, try to take it in my stroll
Or a stride, rip a few shows to let em know
That I’m live, broadcast the tracks and get the cash
Pragmatic rap addicts the only niggas that last huh?

[Chorus]
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map

[Verse 2]
I want to scream it from a megaphone
For my nation that’s overrun with severed homes
Clever poems almost ensure you’re never known
Set in stone by those who’d rather break bread alone
Than share, sad state of affairs, we can’t stop though
I’m mad great with these pairs and they’re not bro
Killing your shit with my diligent clique
We feel that you missed, it’s all f**king villas and spliffs
Militant riffs about drug dealers that lift
Heavy weight, meditate on how I’m real as it gets
When you listen to a verse about material shit
Recognize there’s no lies when my miracles writ
Split, time with my peeps and the crew
Put the balance on the wax, then deliver to you
First hand, burst plans of a critical few
Give you nothing but the raw, quite the pivotal view

[Chorus]
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map

[Verse 3]
Not trying to change your mind, I’m telling it like it is
Even if I’m much maligned by most of the writing biz
It’s such a grind, promoting the type of shiz
That discusses real life and the energy that you give
To keep pushing, the beats to keep cooking
Parental’s got those, these pros indeed hook em’
With allure, bringing warmth back, like a heated cushion
Not leading bookings but we see you looking
Developed a bond perfecting the craft
And it’s, helping us on this definite path
As one of the great duos, don’t want the fake kudos
Critics rate pseudos, mostly hate nouveau
Even when it’s clear to see as H2O
That we’re two of the best artists to break through though
You know the style that’ll make you believe
It’s Pete Flux, giving all the people what they need

[Chorus]
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map
They want the cars and the clothes
What they need, kid? Bars and the flows
They want the bitches and the stacks
What they need, kid? Vision and a map

Cadell – 17 Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don’t care who you think’s the best in grime
Cause I ain’t no rival for a title, I’d rather be next in line
I can see mouths moving but really can’t hear no one
Godfather, my big brother’s the Robert De Niro one
I saved the grime scene, no hero one
Where should I start from? Zero? One?
He took many a flow, tried to use me
Till I got over one, like two, three
And I’m bored of the sword fights
I lock down the rave, no 45s
On the front line, you won’t get lemon
I’ll give him a dead Q, six, seven
Wrote this bar and I had to rate Grimez
I want two boxes, that’s eight nines
I’m a devil, I wanna go to heaven
Nearly a new day, ten to eleven
21+, that’s helping me
Lost my virginity at twelve, thirteen
Plus, didn’t wanna miss me
Write like fourteen to fifteen 16s

[Hook]
You was like seventeen, filling job applications
I was like seventeen, chilling with Truss, we got entertainment
And yeah, I might lose my friend, I don’t want no replacement
Cause me and my circle’s family, I ain’t lost fam in ages
You was like seventeen, filling job applications
I was like seventeen, chilling with Truss, we got entertainment
And yeah, I might lose my friend, I don’t want no replacement
Cause me and my circle’s family, I ain’t lost fam in ages

[Verse 2]
At sixteen, I’d tell girls I’m eighteen
Guess what? They still believed me
Born in 19 How Long, 20 man deep
When I ride out, it’s easy
In America, you’ve gotta be 21 to be able to do
22 of the 23 things we do in 24 hours
25 man wanna beef me
Might not reach 26, if I don’t, I’m pissed
I can say that it’s worth a try
My team’s success might hurt your eyes
Two sevenths, two eighths, two nines and 30 guys
I know you wanna be one
Got the fans like “this ain’t the free one”
And I’mma end the count at 32
Make sure that you get the EP too
And I’ve been a problem
But I don’t admit it often
And I’m anti, ain’t got a million friends
Me riding alone’s like a million men
Spent 2014 giving ’em pebs
2015’s gonna make a little more sense
So business, stay inna yours
Me, I can’t lack inna war
Man think that they’re Modrić, new to the field like Livermore
I’m old school, front liner, Robbie Keane
f**k twerking, if I let it tweak
You’ll know what Bobby means
But enough about Bobby, though
Cause they already knew we was on the road
This my honour roll
I’ve heard too many man say they’re onto me
Dem man are ghost busters like they shot a ghost

[Hook]
You was like seventeen, filling job applications
I was like seventeen, chilling with Truss, we got entertainment
And yeah, I might lose my friend, I don’t want no replacement
Cause me and my circle’s family, I ain’t lost fam in ages
You was like seventeen, filling job applications
I was like seventeen, chilling with Truss, we got entertainment
And yeah, I might lose my friend, I don’t want no replacement
Cause me and my circle’s family, I ain’t lost fam in ages

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Victory Lap lyrics

[Intro: Macklemore]
Now they say, “Don’t forget where you come from
Don’t die holding on to your words
Cause you know, that you got a whole world to change
But understand who you gotta change first”

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
And I was like “Fuck that”, humility bust back
I remember the days with nothing but a bus pass
I was just a little shorty, just hopin’ that I could find a bum
To buy a 40 for me and have enough for a bud sack
Yeah, and I dance on that instrumental
Unorthodox like Basquiat with the pencil
Give me a microphone and a beat box I could vent to
Music the only medium that I could find myself through
Recluse, sippin’ on some lean I would let loose
Lookin’ in the mirror, watchin’ myself lose
Cleaned up in oh-eight, got a job makin’ barely minimum wage
To get into that page
Hit the road with R.L., performing in front of eight people
And that shit will check your ego
About around that time I’m watching that EP go
From nothing to getting us booked around the country
I know no limits, life can change in an instant
Eight people turn into sold out shows in a minute
Now watching my pops in the back row grinnin’
With his glass up to my mom, toastin’ his Guinness

[Pre-Hook: Macklemore]
And we on, we on
Good music, it lies in the ambiance
One day we’ll leave here
But these words live on
Till then, we keep on making the songs

[Hook: Macklemore]
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
Put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
I remember that Freshman edition
Last year thinking to myself like
Yeah, nah, I won’t win it yet, I probably won’t get it, but
I’ma give it everything, play my position
The next 11 months I gave it all, everything I had in me
Left blood, sweat, tears in every god damn city
No label, no deal, no publicist, indie
Just music that connected and fans that rode with me
Throw me a gold mine, and a co-sign
While you’re riding a couple dope rides
Two women, both dimes
Not gonna lie, that shit sounds so nice
But I got creative control, and my soul’s mine
I wouldn’t trade it, maybe I’m crazy
I put on for my city, Seattle, that raised me
Rule four-thousand-and-eighty, it’s really not changing
Now a days make good music, the people are your label

[Hook: Macklemore]
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
Put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high
So put ’em up, up up, up up, so high

[Outro: Macklemore]
Oh my God
Feels like a victory lap
Can I have that moment
Can I talk my shit

[Interlude: Macklemore]
Now they say, “Don’t forget where you come from
Don’t die holding on to your words
Cause you know, that you got a whole world to change
But understand who you gotta change first”

[Outro: Macklemore]
Put ’em, up, up, up up
Up, up, up up
Put ’em, up, up, up up
Macklemore, Ryan Lewis
Put ’em up, up, up up
Up, up, up up
Put ’em, up, up, up up (so high)

Mrs. GREEN APPLE – 春愁 KANJI LYRICS

「早いものね」と心が囁いた
言われてみれば「うん、早かった」

また昨日と同じ今日を過ごした
そんなことばっか繰り返してた

「憧れ」「理想」とたまに喧嘩をした
どうしても仲良くなれなかった
青さの欠片が行き交うか
やっぱり摘み取ることはできなかった

大嫌いだ 人が大嫌いだ
友達も大嫌いだ 本当は大好きだ

明日が晴れるなら それでいいや
明日が来たるのなら それでいいや
あなたが笑うのなら なんでもいいや
世界は変わりゆくけど それだけでいいや

「ありがたいね」と心が囁いた
言われずともちゃんと解っていた

また昨日と同じ今日を過ごした
そんなことばっかり思っていた
「涙」や「笑い」も少なかったりした
実はそんなこともなかった

春が息吹く桜の花も舞いはせず
ただ陽に照らされていた

大嫌いだ 今日が大嫌いだ
昨日も大嫌いだ 明日が大好きだ
いつかいつか見つけてくれるのなら
いつかいつか大切に思えるなら

あなたが生きてさえいれば なんでもいいや
私が生きているなら それでいいや
それでいいや それがいいや

大嫌いだ 人が大嫌いだ
友達も大嫌いだ 本当は大好きだ

Nesbeth Gives Back To Students, Singer Lauded by Embassy & Police High Commission

As the Yuletide season shifts into high gear Reggae luminary, Nesbeth is definitely in the mood for giving. Wrapping up a two-month island-wide campaign to bring social awareness to school children regarding the use and impact of social media. The singer last week made a surprise visit to Montego Bay High School where he handed over a cheque worth fifty thousand dollars, to two students of the academic institution. The recipients: Mikaliah Allen and Brianne Irons were the overall winners of the ‘Success Story’ online competition, hosted in November in collaboration with Foota Hype Music (F.H.M).

Making the presentation during the school’s devotional period, Nesbeth implored the pupils and school administration with special mention to the ancillary staff to follow their dreams and become their own ‘success story’.

“I know what it’s like to not have, coming from very humble place and having to face some almost insurmountable obstacles to get to where I am in life; but the real reason I was able to make it this far is because I had a dream and I never once lost sight of it despite the challenges. So today before I leave, I want to personally implore you all to have a dream and work earnestly towards it.”

The Principal, Mr Gary Powell, thanked Nesbeth for the kind gesture; encouraging him to continue being a beacon of inspiration for the youths of this country.

Over the weekend the ‘Success Story’ hitmaker also made appearances at the Office of the Police High Commission and the United States Embassy, delivering stupendous sets respectively. The Rastafarian crooner was lauded by both entities for his selfless effort at nation-building.

Meanwhile, as the year draws to a close, Nesbeth remains steadfast on completing his album but is expected to release an EP in the first quarter of the new year as a precursor to the album.

The singer’s next appearance will be at the 5th instalment of Ghetto Splash this Tuesday, December 19th.

XXXTentacion Drops New EP “A Ghetto Christmas Carol” Listen

XXXTentacion want his fans to jam to his new EP A Ghetto Christmas Carol for the holidays.

The Lauderhill rapper has had a rocky year but he is looking to close out 2017 on a high with this new five track EP. You can find singles such as “A ghetto Christmas Carol,” “Hate Will Never Win,” “Up Like An Insomniac,” “Red Light,” and “Indecision.” He is listed a producer on the single “Up Like An Insomniac” along with Ronny J who produced most of the project.

Surprisingly there are no Christmas themed song on the EP despite the title being A Ghetto Christmas Carol. On his self-produced song “Insomniac” he raps about his fame and riches in a fiery freestyle over a bass heavy beat. “Okay, Xans for her dinner, uhh / Bag from Margiela, uhh / Bad little b**ch, she Spanish / Speak no English, got no manners / Just like a gnome, I’m at your home / Right on your yard, shoes are Goyard,” X raps.

XXXTentacion has an upcoming court date set for December 15th where he could very well be taken into custody as the prosecution look to lay down more charges against him. He is currently charged with domestic battery by strangulation, witness-tampering, false imprisonment, and aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.

XXXTentacion Could Spend Christmas In Jail, Case Takes A Turn For The Worse

XXXTentacion is in a serious legal bind and could spend Christmas and New Year’s in jail.

The South Florida rapper posted an image of his court document on Instagram while issuing an apology to anyone who he may have let down if he gets locked up at his next court hearing on December 15th. XXXTentacion is set to stand trial for domestic battery by strangulation, witness-tampering, false imprisonment, and aggravated battery of a pregnant woman. These are all serious charges against the rapper and could put him in the slammer for years if found guilty.

“Court date is on the 15th 9:00 am here is my court information, if I am taken into custody, I want to tell everyone I’ve let down I apologize, I tried my best, I really did,” X wrote on IG. Earlier this month, the “Look At Me” rapper’s legal team filed an affidavit claiming that the victim in the case no longer wishes to pursue the case against him but the prosecution objected and argued that the affidavit might not even be legitimate.

XXXTentacion has been having a rocky year despite tasting mainstream success with his rap career and even landing a lucrative record deal with Capitol Records worth a reported $6 million. During the summer he got into a beef with another rapper whose crew knocked him out on stage at one of his tour stops in California. Last month, he again got into an altercation with some guys link to rap group Migos. Despite getting a beat down, he was defiant on social media about getting back at the Atlanta trio.

XXXTentacion released his new EP, A Ghetto Christmas Carol, ahead of his upcoming court date. The project features five new singles including a song he produced himself “Up Like an Insomniac” where he fired off a freestyle.

Aidonia Protege Govana To Unveil New T-Shirt Line

Scorching the airwaves with ‘Loco’ and ‘Gyal Clown’, two of the hottest tracks coming out of the summer. Dancehall artiste Govana is set to unveil his new T-Shirt line next week.

Aside from being a savvy lyricist and songwriter, the 4th Genna deejay can now annex entrepreneur to his list of accruing accolades. Though the initial rollout will feature predominantly garb for men in an array of colours and sizes, Govana explains the collection is unisex, thus the shirts can also be worn by women until the full complement is ready.

“I’ve always wanted to dabble into other aspects of business since my emergence on the scene. Music and fashion go well together and I believe starting a clothing line will be a good marriage for my music and brand. It’s something the fans have been requesting for years so I think now is the right time,” Govana intimated.

He continued, “Everywhere we travel people always asking for T-Shirts and other promotional material, so starting a clothing line I believe is a step in the right direction in building Govana and the 4th Genna brand.”

The collection dubbed ‘Genna Genna’, coined from a popular slang used during his performances will be available at selected stores across the island in the months ahead. However, for the residual of the year, the shirts will only be available in Kingston at Block B Shop 178-179 Constant Spring Arcade (beside the passport office). Full details on other locations will be made available at soonest, in the interim orders can also be placed by contacting (876 401-993).

Meanwhile, Govana says things are progressing steadily with his upcoming EP which he promises will be a ‘respectable body of work’ with something for everyone’. Fans can look out for the official visuals for ‘Gyal Clown’ and ‘Loco’ in the weeks ahead.

P Money – Keepin’ It Real

[Verse 1: P Money]
I just wanna make music
Hit the studio, create music
My fans purchase, download and play music
Seek melody, metaphor and rave music
That chill on the sofa and play music
Don’t want a beat, just wanna play music
Who am I kidding? I’ll beat when I play music and
If her boyfriend is talking smack
I’ve got that lead your girlfriend away music
I’ve got that wild, you’ve got that tame music
I’ve got that real, you’ve got that lame music
I’ve got that cosign, labels wanna sign the work of art
Belong in the Tate music
Grime, rap, UK bass music
That real easy to embrace music, and
Any MC that is thinking they’re rough
I’ve got that punch a man in their face music
That serve you [?] ace music
Black, white, don’t watch race music
Still here, kept my faith music
Ten years, never made no fake music
Man have been making that great music
You need to make that stay in your lane music
Cuh 2016, I’ll be touring Australia
Second time round like

[Pre-Hook: P Money]
I’ve been killing shows with no deal
I always keep it down to earth, I’m so real
I’m ready, I’m itching to go, can’t sit still
They’re so fake, they don’t even know how it feels when you’re

[Hook: P Money]
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, they don’t even know
How it feels when you’re
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it

[Verse 2: Stormzy]
If you’re gonna send then send for the top
Look, trust me, I get it (calm)
I’ll take that shot and I’ll take that shot
Yeah, I’m photogenic (calm)
But when I spray back and I ended careers
Don’t tell me to dead it (‘llow it)
Bare of these MCs hate me
But they still see me and beg it (pussies)
And I still came back with the game on my lap
Like “nobody move” (no one)
Tryna take care of my Gs
Ain’t tryna see nobody lose
But man try come for my team, I’ll dun him off
My man thought he’s a G, stop running off
I’ve got a crown and you’ve got a crown
But rudeboy, this crown here ain’t coming off (‘llow it)

[Pre-Hook: P Money]
I’ve been killing shows with no deal
I always keep it down to earth, I’m so real
I’m ready, I’m itching to go, can’t sit still
They’re so fake, they don’t even know how it feels when you’re

[Hook: P Money]
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, they don’t even know
How it feels when you’re
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it

[Verse 3: P Money]
Yo, I was one of the youngers that you couldn’t send shop
Yeah, I was a mummy’s boy, but never soft
I boxed man that thought they couldn’t get boxed
Topped MCs that thought they couldn’t be topped
When I flow on the riddim, I never get lost
When you flow on the riddim, you’re told “get lost”
Labels wanna know how I keep going hard
Thought I took a pill cuh my ting never went flop
Complete control, I could never get dropped
There was never a show that never went off
Milking it for so long and it never went off
Don’t know why, maybe it’s cause I never went pop
Helped out the game, man did that a lot
Bring us down to festivals, did that a lot
Man can chat shit about me doing dubstep
Told grime police man never bread cops
So I still spray on dubstep now, and what?
Wait, cut the beat out, let me talk to these lot
Let’s talk P, I’m on about me
First grime act packing at Wireless? Me
Spraying on “Eskimo” at Wireless? Me
Five years straight and still tireless? Me
When everybody got a deal and did what they feel
Who was here releasing grime CDs? Me and Jme
Grime tracks on every single EP? Me
Young MC that was duppying pirate? Me
Big MC still duppying pirate? Me
Doing shows worldwide, play a man’s vocal
Showing their country that it’s not just me
Who was doing that at the time? No one, me
There was more but I can’t fit it in a sixteen
Man just better respect me

[Pre-Hook: P Money]
I’ve been killing shows with no deal
I always keep it down to earth, I’m so real
I’m ready, I’m itching to go, can’t sit still
They’re so fake, they don’t even know how it feels when you’re

[Hook: P Money]
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, they don’t even know
How it feels when you’re
Trill, keeping it real
Trill, keeping it

Trettmann – Adriano (Kitschkrieg, Vol. 3 EP) letras

[Intro Ricky Trooper]
Some bwoy a run up dem mouth and a gwaan
Wait till later, wait till later
Leggo tune…

[Bridge]
Tu was ich immer mach, mach was ich immer tu
Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann? Einfach weil ich’s kann

[Hook]
Ich zieh’ an meinem Vapo, lieg auf dem Piano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano
Driano Celentano, Driano Celentano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano

[Verse 1]
Mach die Tür auf, knall sie dir vor deinen Kopf
Wunderst dich, warum hab ich nicht geklopft
Dich und mich wirft man nicht in einen Topf
Adriano Celentano, du sprichst mit dem Boss
Jaja, big pimpin Trinidad
Die Frauen und den Champus und das Good-Life, gimme dat
Alles echt, alles jetzt, ungestreckt, kein Imitat
Hatte grad’ zwei Lobster, doch bin immer noch nicht satt
Hab die Melodie und den Skill
Sing Balladen oder töte, wenn ich will
Die Versatility, du bleibst’n Mini-Me
Ich sing Balladen und ich töte, wenn ich will
An meinem Fuß der neueste Ultra-Boost
Blätter einmal um, mein Foto in der Juice
Dich und mich wirft man nicht in einen Topf
Adriano Celentano, du sprichst mit dem Boss

[Hook]
Ich zieh’ an meinem Vapo, lieg auf dem Piano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano
Driano Celentano, Driano Celentano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano

[Verse 2]
Keine-Keine-Keine Bitch tötet heute meinen Vibe
Pull-Up vor’m Club, Ornella Muti auf mei’m Bike
Sie sagt, jeder andere Artist lässt sie kalt
Und ich hab mehr Vielfalt, als der Regenwald
Jaja, die Kammer voller Indo
Deine Frau nimmt’n Zug und tanzt mir den Limbo
Pscht, spar dir deine Lingo
Hier ‘n Schein für die Bar, komm mal klar Bruder, stimmt so
Ich zelebriere, brauch’ keinen Grund
Unter mei’m Guinnes und dem Herb und dem Rum
Die Versatility, du bleibst’n Mini-Me
Ich zelebriere, brauch’ keinen Grund
Und glaub mir, mir hat keiner was geschenkt
Was du auch denkst, ich bin nur konsequent
Dich und mich wirft man nicht in einen Topf
Adriano Celentano, du sprichst mit dem Boss

[Hook]
Ich zieh’ an meinem Vapo, lieg auf dem Piano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano
Driano Celentano, Driano Celentano
Ihr seid mir egal, Adriano Celentano

Trettmann – In Meinem Leben (Kitschkrieg, Vol. 3 EP) letras

[Hook:]
Tut mir leid, du liegst daneben
Will mir das alles, nicht mehr geben
Hab keinen Platz dafür, nicht in meinem Leben
Hast du gehört ey, nicht in meinem Leben

In meinem Leben, nicht in meinem Leben
Nicht in meinem Leben, hmhm nicht in meinem Leben
Das ist meine letzte Nacht, in dieser Stadt
Vorhang auf, Schlussakt, U – Turn, Neustart

[Verse 1:]
Gab dir mein Bestes wie Anita
War für dich da, lagst du im Fieber
Ich hab’ so lang auf dich gewartet
Heut hoff’ ich, ich seh’ dich nie wieder
Hab nicht hingeschaut, wenn du die Pfeife rockst
Dir nie geglaubt, dass du die Steine stoppst
Schlaf ein, wach wieder auf, nur mit dir in meinem Kopf
Geh bitte raus aus, raus aus meinem Kopf

[Hook:]
Tut mir leid, du liegst daneben
Will mir das alles, nicht mehr geben
Hab keinen Platz dafür, nicht in meinem Leben
Hast du gehört ey, nicht in meinem Leben

In meinem Leben, nicht in meinem Leben
Nicht in meinem Leben, hmhm nicht in meinem Leben
Das ist meine letzte Nacht, in dieser Stadt
Vorhang auf, Schlussakt, U – Turn, Neustart

[Verse 2:]
Seh’ das Bild heute noch vor mir, wie du damals vorfuhrst
Sagst, dass du mich magst, deine Lippen glänzen Purpur
Crush ohne Zukunft, du kennst keinen Futur
Nur ein Leben ohne Limit, immer auf der Überholspur
Mir doch egal, wen oder was du abziehst
Zückst ‘nen Schein aus’m Bündel, zahlst das Taxi
Taub für Komplimente, wenn ich fluche, lachst wie
Halbblut Apanachi, schenk dir Herb zum Abschied

[Hook:]
Tut mir leid, du liegst daneben
Will mir das alles, nicht mehr geben
Hab keinen Platz dafür, nicht in meinem Leben
Hast du gehört ey, nicht in meinem Leben
