At least 9 African countries set to produce COVID vaccines, Africa’s CDC chief says

class=”MuiTypography-root-133 MuiTypography-h1-138″>At least 9 African countries set to produce COVID vaccines, Africa’s CDC chief says

Despite Africa's low vaccination rates, the continent's early, robust response has helped mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the continent so far, says Dr. John Nkengasong, director of the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And he predicts many more vaccines will be available in 2022, with a strong emphasis on distribution.

As omicron continues to make its impact across the globe, scientists in Africa are rapidly learning more about the new coronavirus variant. Omicron was first identified in southern Africa in November.

Dr. John Nkengasong, the director of Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told The World's host Carol Hills that so far in South Africa, omicron cases have quickly peaked and declined, with fewer hospitalizations than variants like delta.  

"We see omicron as a virus that transmits very, very quickly. But then the severity in South Africa has not been comparable to what we saw with the delta variant," he said.

Africa remains the world’s least vaccinated continent against COVID-19, with about 10% of the continent’s population fully vaccinated. Only seven African countries have met the global target of vaccinating 40% of their populations against COVID-19 by the end of 2021. 

However, Nkengasong said Africa's political leadership mounted a "very robust response" early on in the pandemic and that this "extraordinary coordination and collaboration" has helped to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 in Africa.

Over the last two years, leaders have met to discuss and review pandemic preparedness and response at least 16 times, he said.

Nkengasong joined the The World to discuss several lessons learned so far from studying omicron in southern Africa, as well as from managing the HIV/AIDS pandemic. 

Carol Hills: Dr. Nkengasong, scientists predicted that the African continent will be much harder hit by COVID-19, with tens of millions of infections and several million deaths. That hasn't happened — which is good. But why has the impact been so different than it was predicted?Dr. John Nkengasong: It is very obvious that through the extraordinary coordination and collaboration that the political leadership of the continent exercised very early on, they were able to mount a very robust response. And just to substantiate that — the political leadership of the continent has met at least 16 times to review the actions and coordinate their efforts and discuss the pandemic — that is highly unusual. In my over three decades experience in public health, we have not seen that.

What other factors do you think need to be studied about why Africa didn't see the infections and death levels that were expected, despite the low vaccination rate?From a scientific perspective, there are several parameters that we need to study in Africa. One is, what are existing immune responses contributing to a less severe outcome? Second, are we counting everybody that has been infected? And have we counted all the deaths? We just concluded a study and we saw that in some countries, the number of people that have been exposed to the virus is significantly higher than what has been reported, but it has not necessarily translated to the number of deaths on the continent, for sure. So then, the research question that we have to resolve is, why has the increased number of exposures on the continent not led to deaths like we saw in India, how devastating the virus was in India — you couldn't hide the deaths, right? But we have not seen that scenario in Africa. We also have to begin to look at the interreaction between existing infections like malaria and even other coronaviruses that cause the common cold in Africa, and if they have led to the production of certain antibodies that can prevent or slow the severity of these diseases. So, a lot that needs to be studied. There are several working groups and research centers across the continent that are looking into this. I know you've written about the lack of biotech and manufacturing in Africa, and the continent's dependance globally for supplies of vaccines. What steps are being done to change that?A lot has happened and continues to happen in the course of this pandemic. The heads of states came together and launched a program called Partnership for African Vaccine Manufacturing. And through that partnership, at least nine countries on the continent have engaged in the pathway for producing vaccines, including South Africa, Rwanda, Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Morocco, Egypt. Egypt, for example, is already producing about 3.5 million doses of vaccines. We know that South Africa is now producing vaccines. So I think you'll continue to see that the landscape will change significantly in 2022.

I want to get back to vaccine access because it's such a front-and-center issue. With 10% of the African continent fully vaccinated, what needs to happen to improve access to vaccines?In 2022, you'll see many more vaccines arrive in the continent, so we have to shift our emphasis on making sure that vaccines that arrive at the airports are actually getting into the arms of people who need it. And that will require that we focus on such capacity for workforce, such capacity for logistics, such capacity for distribution to the last mile, and such capacity to engage the communities. So, those are the key areas that we need to focus on now to increase our uptake of vaccines from the 10% to about over 70% — or more. President Joe Biden has announced that he intends to nominate you to lead the US president's emergency plan for AIDS relief, known as PEPFAR. Can you speak to how the response to HIV in Africa and worldwide has helped inform the response to COVID? I think it is important to know that we are dealing with two pandemics across the world. The HIV/AIDS pandemic and COVID[-19] is a pandemic that has just emerged over the last two years. And very unfortunately, and very concerning, is the interreaction of the two pandemics. We now know that people infected with HIV tend to not clear the virus, that is, the COVID-19 virus, appropriately, especially if they have not been fully treated — and that has the risk of creating variants. We don't know what the trajectory for COVID[-19] will look like in the coming years, but we know that HIV has been with us for 40 years [and] has killed almost 37 million people. Tremendous gains have been made in the fight against HIV, especially in Africa. But we should be mindful of what COVID[-19] can do to erode the significant progress that we have made in achieving remarkable progress in controlling HIV/AIDS over the years.Do you have any predictions or sense of how omicron is going to make its way through the world and its behavior and longevity, based on what happened in Africa? Or is simply more research needed? I think it's interesting to take a close look at how the trajectory of omicron has been in South Africa. Omicron came in very quickly. We saw it in South Africa rise very sharply to the peak and then decline very quickly. If you compare that to the delta variant, when it first hit South Africa, for example, it took several weeks to peak and then it took several weeks to to begin to decline — which is not the case of omicron. We see omicron as a virus that transmits very, very quickly. But then the severity in South Africa has not been comparable to what we saw with the delta variant. We are truly grateful for that because if the virus had transmitted that quickly and it led to a severity of cases, then it would have been overwhelming completely across southern Africa, and across the world, just because it has now spread across the entire world. So, we continue to learn more about omicron, what we call the pathogenesis and the clinical spectrum of omicron. For example, is it infecting children more? For example, would it lead to long COVID? And what does that mean in terms of the dynamics between omicron and delta variants in South Africa and the world? So there's a lot to be learned from the omicron virus, but at least the early lessons that have emerged is the less severity in terms of clinical outcomes and hospitalization of the omicron variant.

The US has banned the entry of a native of the USSR and the former richest woman in Africa

The US accused the USSR-born Isabel dos Santos of corruption and banned her from entering the US State Department imposed restrictions on the USSR-born daughter of the ex-President of Angola Isabel dos Santos for participation in corruption offenses. In early 2021, Forbes removed her from the list of the richest people in Africa

Isabel dos Santos

The United States imposed sanctions against the daughter of the former President of Angola, entrepreneur Isabel dos Santos, who was born in the USSR, according to the US State Department.

According to the department, restrictions on dos Santos were introduced for participation in corruption offenses “ by embezzling public funds for personal purposes. '' As part of these measures, the United States may deny entry to foreign officials who it suspects are involved in such crimes.

the former head of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine Oleksandr Tupitskiy “ for serious corruption actions, including receiving a bribe while working in the Ukrainian judicial system. '' The restrictions extended to his wife Olga.

Dos Santos & mdash; daughter of José Eduardo dos Santos, who was President of Angola from 1979 to 2017. She was born in 1973 in the USSR, in Baku, when her father studied there, and by birth she has Russian citizenship.

In 2013, Forbes named dos Santos the richest woman in Africa, estimating her fortune at $ 3.5 billion. In mid-2020, according to the publication, it dropped to $ 1.4 billion. In January 2021, the magazine excluded her from the list of the richest people. continent, this happened due to the freezing of assets of dos Santos in Angola and Portugal in 2019 and 2020 in the framework of criminal cases against her.

During the reign of his father, Dos Santos became the owner of 25% in the company manufacturing mobile phones Unitel, co-owner of several banks and chairman of Angola's state oil company Sonangol. Since the coming to power of President João Lourenço in 2017, who promised to end clan capitalism in Angola, she began to lose her assets, and her prosecution began in various jurisdictions.

At the end of January 2020, the Attorney General's Office of Angola accused dos Santos of embezzling Sonangol funds, and her accounts were frozen. She was also suspected of large embezzlement, fraud and the use of her position. According to the authorities, the loss from her actions amounted to $ 5 billion. The woman, who by that time had left for Portugal, did not admit the accusations against her. Later, at the request of Angolan law enforcement agencies, her accounts in Portugal were arrested.

In June 2020, dos Santos announced her readiness to cooperate with the investigation, explaining this with a desire to restore her good name. A month earlier, she said that one of the pieces of evidence against her & mdash; a passport that was allegedly used for fraudulent schemes & mdash; was fake. According to dos Santos, the date of birth is incorrectly indicated in the document, the passport numbers in the two places do not match, and the signature in it belongs to actor Bruce Lee, who died in 1973.

Major aspects of the trans-Atlantic slave trade from an African perspective have gotten erased throughout time. Howard French set out to illuminate a more expansive understanding in a new book called, "Born in Blackness: Africa, Africans, and the Making of the Modern World, 1471 to the Second World War."

Historical accounts of slavery often fail to place Africa at the center of it.

Instead, relatively reductive, Western-centric narratives get passed down: Enslaved Africans were ripped from their roots, sold and shipped to the Western Hemisphere. Globalized markets exploded. Western empires triumphed.

"In some ways, hurricanes serve as an apt metaphor for trans-Atlantic slavery, just as those systems form on the western fringes of Africa before hurling their energy upon the distant shores of the Americas, the mass traffic in Africans violently yoked together the millions of victims gathered on its western shores before scattering them in the distant hemisphere to the West in sometimes random-seeming ways."

Howard French, author of "Born into Blackness"

"In some ways," French writes in the book, "hurricanes serve as an apt metaphor for trans-Atlantic slavery, just as those systems form on the western fringes of Africa before hurling their energy upon the distant shores of the Americas, the mass traffic in Africans violently yoked together the millions of victims gathered on its western shores before scattering them in the distant hemisphere to the West in sometimes random-seeming ways." 

French, a former New York Times correspondent, joined The World's host Marco Werman to discuss his book, with a focus on the island nation of São Tomé in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of West Africa.

French explained that São Tomé is where the plantation model began. It's where African slaves were first "exclusively used by Europeans" for the large-scale production of sugar, he said.

In the first few decades of the 16th-century, that model got transported across oceans, from Brazil to the Antilles in the Carribean to the United States. The shift from sugar production to cotton production all used this same economic model that "was essentially perfected in São Tomé," French explained.

Marco Werman: I'm curious, today, what do the people of São Tomé know about the story of the traffic of enslaved people?Howard French: I was struck, in visiting there, that sites of memory linked to this history are extraordinarily few and poorly elaborated. Only in one specific spot did I really discover not a monument — but a human trace of the story that I'm telling. And it was on the sort of north side of the island where a famous shipwreck takes place early in the 1500s. Slaves being brought from Africa to São Tomé by the Portuguese and the ship crashes on some rocks just off the shore of São Tomé then. And some of the slaves make it to land, somehow. The white people disappear. There's no further record of them, and these slaves set up one of the first so-called maroon or runaway slave societies in the bush of that part of this heavily forested island. And they survived in that way, independent of the Portuguese colonizers, for a very long time and eventually even mount a rebellion in collusion with enslaved Africans on the other part of the island against Portuguese rule.So, despite the interconnectedness of Europe and Africa throughout history, the African side of the story has — unless you go looking for it — been erased, as you say, from the mainstream telling of that history. Why is that?Part of it is because, I think, Europeans are aware of the extraordinary horror that attaches to this enterprise, that 12.5 million people survived the Middle Passage and were delivered into slavery in the New World. And these people produce the wealth that separated, for the first time in history, Europe from other, older civilizations like in India, and in East Asia and China, in particular via the exploitation of bonded labor. Europe's wealth grew out of this exploitation. And the very viability of the American colonies, which became the United States, also grew out of this form of exploitation, and these are hard things to wrestle with. It's a human instinct — everyone would like to explain their own success by virtuous aspects of their personality or of their history. And it's difficult to allow for the proper accounting for things so terrible as this. And so I think there's this persistent denial. I also think that part of this is a kind of deliberate separation in the way this history is told between Africans and Africans in the Americas or what we call today, in the United States. African Americans. Artificial divides are maintained in the relating of this history that make it hard to understand how important actually Africa was, how central Africa was to all of this history.The title of your book gets at a central theme of this history — the mass othering of people based on the color of their skin. Whether it's the Portuguese royals of the early 1400s, who first used the African to objectify the people on the continent, or the notion that you bring up of "savage-to-slave," it's the kind of foundational mindset of the enslavement of humans. How has that framing persisted over time and across oceans? Well, the interesting thing you see when you begin to explore this history in depth is that in the 15th and 16th century, quite remarkably, the Portuguese and some of the early other early Europeans who are making commercial exploration of the world of sub-Saharan Africa actually are not predominantly othering Africans to the extent one would imagine today. Africans had diplomatic political relations with the European kingdoms. They had representatives in the Vatican and they had embassies going back and forth between Africa and Western Europe. All of this stuff has been written out of history.​ Africans from Congo sustained an alliance with Holland to fight what really looks like a world war in the South Atlantic against Spain and Portugal. This alliance was proposed by the Congolese side.

These are just extraordinary stories that sort of make the othering you've described impossible to sustain, I would argue.The reason we have arrived at this state of othering is, again, I think, related to the horror that attaches to the entire enterprise of slavery. When one sees the process of converting human beings in such large numbers into beasts of burden and deriving one's wealth and economic success, and by this I mean Western Europe, but also the American colonies, which depend almost entirely on their economic relations with the Caribbean, meaning, with slave societies, one is confronted with two choices: One, recognize the horror or two, find other explanations to kind of mitigate the implications of this for one's own self-image. Howard, you quote Bob Marley's anthemic "Redemption Song," in your book. Remind us what Marley says and why it spoke to you so obviously for this history.Marley is saying in this particular song and in a number of his songs, something that I find of potentially revelationary importance — which is, don't take the history which is delivered to you in prepackaged, predigested ways for granted. Remember your roots. Try to go to the beginnings of the history, try to understand things in fundamental ways. Don't allow people to convince you, if you are of African ancestry, that you are worthless, which is what so much of our history for so long has tried to do. Marley, with his own creative genius, keeps coming back to this in his music. And so this is what his call to avoid becoming a victim of mental slavery is all about.

Jidenna – Worth the Weight Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
People, confusion going on
Why don’t we just learn how to live with one another?
It’s not really impossible, why do we have to make it so hard?
With so much pollution and erasion, why? Why?
If we can learn how to live with one another, then we can learn who is going to take the weight?
Wait, I think that you’ll find it
Wait, wait, I think that you’ll find it
Wait, wait, I think that you’ll find it

[Verse 1]
Yeah, yeah
I go for the record, I don’t just go for the medals, bro
Niggas used to know that we stronger than the devil, bro
Since I buried Papa in the village with the shovel, bro
Every move is bold, ain’t no time for bein’ subtle, bro
In the face of evil, I can find the needle, haystack
Could have freed my people if this weed was legal way back
Popo spun the wheel on misfortune, but I ain’t play that
They come round and pat-pat-pat us down but I ain’t say jack
I escaped the trap, I escaped the cubicles, bro
I escaped the drive by’s, drop the funerals, bro
And I beat the case, and I beat the chase, woah woah
Can I keep the pace? Can I keep the pace ? I’on know
I escaped them tryna bleach a nigga’s brain
Coulda went to Wall Street, instead I built up my own lane
Rather have a street in my own name
Or money with my face on it like I’m Prince Arcane

[Refrain]
You not gon’ see me frowning in these days and times, you see, the days of the Oyinbo man are numbered like football Jerseys
We all know that all of our suffering and smiling has been worth the wait!

[Verse 2]
My nigga, who knew?
Who knew that that boy from Enugu with the booboo on his knee (Knee)
Back then was actin’ like a poodle on a leash (Leash)
One day he’d have to learn the juju on the streets (Streets)
Starin’ at death, like, is your shooters gonna squeeze? (Squeeze)
Freeze, please
As a little boy slanging chains back in Chinatown
Thinkin’ to myself, I’ma build a block at [?] town wit’ my, wit’ my, wealth
And I pray that I’m the brightest sound that you ever felt
I’ma take a million flights around, ’til that shit is felt
That’s that lead the way, ayy
That’s no piece of cake, ayy
That’s that troll online that live inside the tree all day, ayy
That’s that he so gay, ayy
That’s that she so fake, ayy
That’s that insecure, ayy
That’s that Issa Rae, ayy
Hey
You do you, me do me
So long as you don’t fuss wit’ we (We, baby)

[Outro]
I believe it’s time for an African peoples powered highway. A highway that will connect the Diaspora and Motherland. A global highway for African people all over the world to rediscover themselves. To remember that the only thing that unites black people, globally, the only thing we all have in common is that we are from Africa

Poppy – Fashion After All Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m working every angle
My lipstick is a staple
My hair and makeup makes you envious and want to die
I’m worthy to some money
I’m saving every penny
I’m in Japan and Africa and I don’t need a guy
My wrists are terrorists
My lips gave you a kiss
My consciousness thinks this is making me feel fabulous

[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want

[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all

[Verse 2]
Give me a second to think
Give me something cold to drink
Give me a reason I should listen to another word
I’m revolutionary
A little bold and scary
I’m making plans to save the world and I don’t need your help
I’m on another level
There’s nothing I can’t handle
I’m watching you watch me the way the devil watches angels

[Pre-Chorus]
Do what I want
Say what I want
Wear what I want
Talk how I want
Walk how I want
Do what I want
Wear what I want

[Chorus]
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
(It’s fashion after all
Fashion after all
It’s fashion after all
It’s fashion after all)

Weezer – Africa lyrics

[Verse 1]
I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in, 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say
“Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you”

[Chorus]
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

[Verse 2]
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I’ve become

[Chorus]
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

Le Luci Della Centrale Elettrica – Waltz Degli Scafisti lyrics

[Verse 1]
In una città cinese, in Africa,
Una cometa è caduta
In una zona disabitata.
Senti la distanza nel cammino
Tra le tue origini e il tuo destino.
Senti le profezie,
I canti dei muezzin e delle tifoserie.
In una città italiana, in Argentina,
Il vulcano ha coperto di cenere le macchine della zona.
Tu sei l’unica con gli occhi chiari:
Non si sa da dove vieni,
Parli di viaggi interstellari!
Senti: sono mie tutte le cantilene,
Le carte nautiche e le fantasie.

[Chorus]
Gli scafisti si orientano con le stelle.
Le nostre storie sono troppo belle,
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle

[Verse 2]
In una città indiana, in Australia,
Guardo il sole tramontare in una cava mineraria.
Onde alte come una frontiera,
Mucche sacre, energie rinnovabili ogni sera.
Senti le poesie:
è un canto di sirene e di suonerie
In una base americana sulla Luna
Portano pesi leggeri, portano fortuna.
I bambini hanno nomi di divinità
Anche i tuoi occhi chiari si abitueranno all’oscurità.
Senti: sono mie le coperte termiche dorate, le stelle sparpagliate, le tecnologie.

[Chorus]
Gli scafisti si orientano con le stelle.
Le nostre storie sono troppo belle,
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle
Gli scafisti si orientano con le stelle.
Le nostre storie sono troppo belle,
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle
Non cercare di capirle

Jaden Smith – Ninety lyrics

[Part I]
[Intro]
Love
The United States and the White House, smile!

[Chorus]
Come here, mama, I know you want me
Food from the soul, I know you’re hungry
Gave you my two cents, ain’t got money, but
I’ll take you somewhere fun and tell you something funny, hey
It’s something funny, baby

[Verse 1]
When I open my eyes, I wish to see you
But your phone doesn’t ring and you’re gone all the time
Well I guess you’re somewhere with your crew
Isn’t the first time, but the worst time, and I’m feeling so blue
You sit in your room and you listen to tunes
And I’m feeling embarrassed, it’s true
You out there in Paris with who?
When I open my eyes (eyes), I wish to see you
But your phone doesn’t ring and you’re gone all the time
Well I guess you’re somewhere with your crew
I’m at the SOHO House
If you wanna come through, there’s a seat just for you
My prettiest secret, I hope that you keep it
I’m blue as a piece of the moon and I know I’ll be seeing you soon

[Bridge]
She said “Jaden, you are my soulmate”
You only say that when you’re lonely
Girl, I’m suprised you even know me, ay
I’m not gon’ fuck, but we can kick it like we homies, ay
‘Cause we just homies, baby

[Verse 2]
(Life is a puzzle)
It isn’t picture perfect
You could miss perfection in it because it is subtle
The storm is coming and it’s raining cats and dogs, stay away from all them puddles
I’m keepin’ it humble and noble
I spit that radiation like I’m Chernobyl
On Indus Valley, man, I’m in the valley, crying myself to sleep on the sofa (When you’re lonely)
I told ya I’m more than the kid with a chauffeur
Who don’t know the life of a soldier, I’m older now
The world’s a lot colder now
The MSFTS are stayin’ up, I’m tryna hold it down
They stay attackin’ us, I’ma just weep on my willow
I look what they sayin’, they playin’ as I go to sleep on my pillow
But then when I open my eyes, I wish to see you
But your phone doesn’t ring and you’re gone all the time
Well I guess you’re somewhere with your crew
This ain’t the first time, but the worst time, and I’m feeling so blue
I’m at the SOHO House
If you wanna come through, got a seat just for you
Girl, and whether you do, I ain’t proud of you so

[Chorus]
Come here, mama, I know you want me
Food from the soul, I know you’re hungry
Gave you my two cents, ain’t got money, but
I’ll take you somewhere fun and tell you something funny, hey
It’s something funny, baby

[Verse 3]
You need to stand for something or else you’ll fall for nothing
Girl, this not my country, we all come from Africa
Now we’re up to something
Girl, you’re hella grumpy
I think you’re just hungry
Cause right now you’re actin’ up
I don’t think you want me
You just want my company
While your man is—
All these girls who laugh at us
Girl, you got me running
From you, I want nothing
Cloudy days aren’t sunny

[Segue]
Girl, you make me wanna dance, dance, dance
Put me in a trance, you never wanna hold hands
But I guess I just missed the chance

[Chorus]
Saying that we’ll run away
I doubt that we’ll ever go
I hope the sunset will stay
We’ve traveled too far from home
Saying that we’ll run away
I doubt that we’ll ever go
I hope the sunset will stay
We’ve traveled too far from home
Saying that we’ll run away
I really doubt that we’ll go
I hope the sunset will stay
We’ve traveled too far from home
Saying that we’ll run away
I really doubt that we’ll go
I hope the sunset will stay
We’ve traveled too far from home

[Verse]
I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna live a lie
I don’t wanna know
You could be my bride, you could let me come inside
You could be my home
I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna fantasize
I don’t wanna go
But baby, you could be the one I’m telling all my secrets when I’m all alone
Baby girl, you know I’m rollin’
Get you without any clothes, I’m focused
Our love is drowning in the ocean, hopeless
I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna fantasize
I don’t wanna know
But baby you could be the one I’m telling all my secrets when I’m all alone
Baby girl, you know I’m rollin’
Get you without any clothes, I’m focused
Our love is drowning in the ocean, hopeless
Rollin’, rollin’
Rollin’, rollin’
Baby girl, you got me rollin’
Damn out of your control and
I touch your body in the ocean
Then you feel these raw emotions

[Interlude]
Syre
Passion, Pain and Desire just like my big bro’
What you didn’t know it’s this young kid’s been in limbo
Since that gunshot wound on that hidden road
Lost, broken, invisible
But when that light gets low, he’s invincible
So much soul that he redefined inevitable
So it’ll never go
So the sun never set at all instead of setting slow
And as the legend goes Syre lived forever on
And never and forever alone, Syre

[Bridge]
I’m rollin’, I’m rollin’
I’m rollin’, I’m rollin’
Saying that we’ll run away
I doubt that we’ll ever go
I hope the sunset will stay
We traveled too far from home
Baby, we don’t need a hero
I have never been a hero
I have always been a zero
Baby, you should be the hero
Baby, you should be the hero

[Outro]
Legend says Syre still exists in the mist, in the fog
Poets say he ascended to the Gods
Skeptics say he pretended to be gone
But I say that he’s eternally lost

Jungle King – Jungle King Inna Babylon lyrics

Hear me now……… Me a jungle king inna babylon
Hear me now……… I’ve got a story to tell ya

If you think there’s a solution……………. Get up and fight for your salvation
If you face reality now……………………. You’ll know the end of this story

At the beginning long time ago dem a come
We welcomed dem in Africa
Then dem started stealing everything yea
Killing all my brothers and sisters
That was dem civilization
Me say Africans rise up and fight

Me a jungle king ……………………… Say what
Jungle king inna babylon ………….. Say what

Me a jungle king inna babylon
Me don’t care what people say
Dem talking nonsense everyday
When dem see me walking on the street
Dem try to treat me like a freak
Dem wanna see me jump on the trees
Cause I’m black and I come from the jungle
Why so much ignorance in this place
This place dem call first world me say
The world of dem civilization

I man seem not to have a personality
Even when me try to help my fellow man
To be civilized to assert my self
Then dem try to crush and shoot me down
When I reach my aim dem a call success
Dem call me spark of the underworld
Even if me try to tell dem the truth
The only thing dem think is shoot me down

Hear me now……… Me a jungle king inna babylon
Hear me now……… I’ve got a story to tell ya

If you think you could be free……………. Don’t wait in vain fight for your rights
If you face reality now……………………… You’ll be free in our promised land

The first civilization was born in Africa
The human race is born in Africa
In every nation so much confusion
Confuse the people with dem illusions
Everyday the same situation
But ther’s no way for a solution

Hear me now……… Me a jungle king inna babylon
Hear me now……… I’ve got a story to tell ya

Keybone – Nobody Does lyrics

Hey, Dr Jazz, turn me up
Let show these fools how we do it on the west side
For we all know it’s the best side
Ride with me, let’s ride!

Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does
Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does

I told you bro, they will want to know how we roll
How hard we go, yet just going pro, just so you will know
They are all snakes and fakes, They ain’t got nothing to offer
Got them running for the cover, I ain’t Yemi’s lover
Neither am I trying to be that father figure
I will rather see God than to see the wack live
Take a vac, leave! If that’s you, I have got a clue
Some things will never change, but this will and that’s true
Some other Kings were trained, but his skills in Dad’s shoes
It’s all baby steps, I drink what my old lady preps
Think about life and crazy celebs
I’m more about money, cash and banks we can stash those
Move up the ranks, give thanks, abash foes
Nobody knows how your trash goes
But now they know how the best does, don’t come and test us
We are in the kitchen, cooking hits for investors

Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does
Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does

Nobody bursts thus, they could hurt their vocal chords
Nothing but local gawds, trust me, it’s all hype
It’s just me, I’m alright, I don’t need no favors
I’m way sharper than razors, other rappers they play are soft
X-Ray us, but they can’t find “Chi-chi”
I’m long gone in an Audi tt, unstoppable, I’m untoppable
I’m topping my game everyday while you are comical
Before you crop into my aim, check where you are coming to
A straight shooter, dreaming like Martin Luther
Ladies screaming like he is Freddy Krueger, Dr Jazz is the producer
Keybone is the maestro, running things like on hydro
Only a psycho will think funny or micro
Wherever I go they want to know my viewpoint
Especially on a new joint, Rather than jumping
Make sure you will be humping, I’m all yours
The floor’s yours, so be bumping

Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does
Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does

Someone’s been asking what they see in us
Could it be because we are indigenous, is that why they are digging us?
We keep it icy and spicy, all about the jolly, we have got the lolly
I’m from the west of Nigeria, never hailed from Cali
Now you have heard from the horse’s mouth
Kick all of your sources out
They are rumor mongers and have no place amongst us
I’m way stronger now, even looking younger, how?
They want to know my secret, but they can’t keep it
Setting the bar higher, so they can’t leap it
They call it game, got in it for the fame
I came for the claim, that’s why I’m spitting flames
Hitting lames and switching lanes, till they can’t keep up
They slip up, they ain’t got nothing on rap and hip hop
This is what we do, and surely there’s a sequel
Africa’s magic, west side, no equals

Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does
Nobody Does It Like We Do
Nobody Does

THEY. – Africa lyrics

[Intro]
I would do
I know I won’t forget but in case you didn’t know
Your smile and everything make me do
I would like to thank God for making this possible
And I would like to dedicate this album and every other note
That I play to him you know
(Yeah brother)

[Verse 1]
City of broken dreams
Check a nigga wallet
Money stacked up to the ceiling
City of double D
Ever dream about it?
Pussy stacked up to the ceiling

[Pre-Chorus]
Money’s the devil they tell ’em, but they only tell ’em
‘Cause they never felt what it feels to be on it
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Check my cerebellum I can tell ’em
Blow out your candles and puff on your cannabis
Wishing for what you can’t handle
Has never been worth it
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Check my cerebellum I can tell ’em

[Chorus]
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)

[Post-Chorus]
I would do

[Verse 2]
City of broken dreams
Sinning for a dollar
Forgive me but I love the feeling
Know what they want from me
So I don’t even bother
I do it all for a reason

[Pre-Chorus]
Money’s a devil they tell ’em, but they only tell ’em
‘Cause they never felt what it feels to be on it
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Check my cerebellum I can tell ’em
Blow out your candles and puff on your cannabis
Wishing for what you can’t handle
It’s never been worth it
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Check my cerebellum I can tell ’em

[Chorus]
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)

[Post-Chorus]
I would do

[Bridge]
Tell ’em niggas that this nigga tells ’em
This is what a nigga dream about
Take another shot of liquor with your cup but you gon’ waste it just to chase it down
We gon’ never be on equal ground
This is what a nigga preach about
We will always be a menace
To society so tell ’em that they can keep the crown

[Outro]
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)
Money, money, money is all that a nigga deserve
(Y’all niggas ain’t got no motherfuckin’ bitches)

The Doors – Wild Child Lyrics

[Intro]
All right

[Chorus]
Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face

[Bridge]
Natural child, terrible child
Not your mother’s or your father’s child
Your our child, screaming wild
An ancient lunatic reins
In the trees of the night
Ha, ha, ha, ha

[Verse]
With hunger at her heels
Freedom in her eyes
She dances on her knees
Pirate prince at her side
Stirring into a hollow idols eyes

[Chorus]
Wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race
Your cool face[x3]

[Outro]
Do you remember when we were in Africa?

I’m from where kids hustled on the block and rolled cee-lo
And niggas stay strapped like Girbauds
T-Nice with me week to week though
Life was different when they got him for that R.I.C.O
For a couple kilos
Coulda had ’em underground, he was livin’ life illegal
Now he gettin’ right and our pockets lookin’ chicho
Sippin’ cappuccino on a jet to Cannes
Couple models gettin’ lit, they the best in France
Got Leonardo dough, catch me if you can
We had to kill Beijing and next Japan, man
This beat hot, I could catch a tan
My demographic in L.A. all Mexican
I love my supporters, they keep the check in hand
So every time I get a chance, I’ma bless the fam
What up, what up?

Brought mama that new house, diamonds and mean pearls
Done went to Africa, talked to the have-nots
Donated some uniforms, teach ’em how to have guap
Preemo put the soul in it, I make the track hot
And this thing forever got the game in a padlock
I just want somethin’ real, I’m tired of the ass shots
Don’t wanna go to the club, I’m tired of them trap spots
My generation’s stuck on stupid
Showin’ guns on the ‘Gram, but no one use it
Sometimes I feel like I’m about to lose it
Because the fake win when y’all know what the truth is
It’s me, the F-E-R to the fuckin’ G
My bars is Gang Starr, nobody can fuck with me
Rest in peace Guru, nobody can fuck with he
You rappers is coocoo, better wake up out your fuckin’ dreams

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

Mountains

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
Please nigga don’t push me

Lyrics Young Thug – You said

So what’s up with all that goddamn tough talk you had earlier on the phone,
you know what I’m saying? When you said you was gon’ goddamn do this and that to me when you saw me?
Where all that at? Oh I thought so
You got high a level of confidence, you know what I’m saying.

You said you gon’ f*ck me to death when you see me
You said that, you said that
You said you gon’ do me the worst, I remember you right when you said that
You said you gon’ kiss from my neck to my chest to my naval and dick and nuts
We talked about everything, then you know that we got us some making up
I lick on that puss on a pill, and I make her stand up like some bunny ears
I bite on her butt and I suck on her toes and her soul go outta here
She look at him like he roadkill and I turned ’round her life like I’m Dr. Phil
Let’s get freaky deeky ’round here.

Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to say now)
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to say now)
Say now, ooh, ooh, oohhh.

I got the door unlocked
And I know right now she’d rather have my dick than a watch (facts)
And I’m not right about everything, but I got a strong feeling she’ll take me a charge if we run into the narcs
And I’m seeing all your emotions, came a long way from roaches
Unwrap the birds, get to rolling
I ain’t never needed nothing brodie
All full pocket, macaroni
Rose-gold AP like a token
Bought that b***h a mink, now she cozy
Rather go to jail, I ain’t told ’em
I get excited when I see you
I’d rather freeze up and get shy when I see you
I’m they dream and I’m steady just strappin’ our child in the rearview
If you a cool one you a real one
Let’s go to Africa, to the Pilgrim.

You said you gon’ f*ck me to death when you see me
You said that, you said that versuri-lyrics.info
You said you gon’ do me the worst, I remember you right when you said that
You said you gon’ kiss from my neck to my chest to my naval and dick and nuts
We talked about everything, then you know that we got us some making up
I lick on that puss on a pill, and I make her stand up like some bunny ears
I bite on her butt and I suck on her toes and her soul go outta here
She look at him like he roadkill and I turned ’round her life like I’m Dr. Phil
Let’s get freaky deeky ’round here.

Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now (say now), ooh, ooh, oohhh.

Last week she told me we ain’t gon’ make it past this day
We in my house, she wanted me to leave, where I’m gonna stay?
She hid the keys in the attic, she even tried to hide my Patek
Please stop being petty, I don’t want no more spaghetti
My side b***h in the driveway, yeah
Waiting on you to leave, bae, yeah
You gotta know, yeah, the time changed
I don’t know what’s on your mind frame
But I gotta go and gangbang
The streets mine so I switch lanes
You said “I won’t change” (won’t change)
You said “I won’t change” (won’t change)
I regret I put you up on game (regret it)
I regret I told your mama “Life would change,” (momma)
Yeah, out of all the cash, I put on her
Out of all the bags, I put on her
And I said I don’t brag, I don’t boast
Said you’ll pop the tags, I don’t want ’em
And my niggas they been placed the vote
But you needed to get off the boat
I can’t blame it on me I said “No”
Got her head so big it explode.

You said you gon’ f*ck me to death when you see me
You said that, you said that
You said you gon’ do me the worst, I remember you right when you said that
You said you gon’ kiss from my neck to my chest to my naval and dick and nuts
We talked about everything, then you know that we got us some making up
I lick on that puss on a pill, and I make her stand up like some bunny ears
I bite on her butt and I suck on her toes and her soul go outta here
She look at him like he roadkill and I turned ’round her life like I’m Dr. Phil
Let’s get freaky deeky ’round here.

Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now (say now), ooh, ooh, ooh.

Let’s make our last toast, she gets the last gulp
I got some Actavis yeah, I want the last dose
I got a good cash flow, but I don’t want the fast dough
Young Thugger got filthy rich, I came right out the rat-hole (facts)
I smoked a whole leaf, I’m drinking codeine
I want some head and knees, I don’t want no teeth
I should’ve called off, I’m bout to OD
In her mouth like a golf ball, my two homies
Lay it up on me, I make her squirt on the couch, eww
Private party, only broads here
We pass forty caps, no beers (got the forty capsule)
Every diamond on me crystal clear
Molly on me, baby, take it off of me (off of me)
CAT scan, white stuff on my jeans (lap dance)
Hit it from the back, loosen up her spleen
Say you mine, I’ma take it off and raw dog.

You said you gon’ f*ck me to death when you see me
You said that, you said that
You said you gon’ do me the worst, I remember you right when you said that
You said you gon’ kiss from my neck to my chest to my naval and dick and nuts
We talked about everything, then you know that we got us some making up
I lick on that puss on a pill, and I make her stand up like some bunny ears
I bite on her butt and I suck on her toes and her soul go outta here
She look at him like he roadkill and I turned ’round her life like I’m Dr. Phil
Let’s get freaky deaky around here.

Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now, ooh, ooh, ooh (I want you to)
Say now, ooh, ooh, oohhh.

Chronixx – Black Is Beautiful (Chronology Album)

[Intro]
We love the children of Africa
Teaching the children
Oh na na Janna
La da da da

[Verse 1]
Black eye, black hair, black skin
Black queen stand majestic with the black king
Today I’ll sing you a black song, you need to hear about beautiful black kings cos
Most time we hear about black, we hear about black magic and black witches
Black list, black book, black market
Black Friday, ya spend off your black riches
I’ve never seen a doctor in black nor seen a black pill fi cure no black people
But I’ve seen bush doctors like Tosh and Marley resurrect like a real black beatle
Malcom, Marcus, Martin
When you see Walter Rodney ask him
How you nuh hear about Howell often
So when the little offspring asking, tell them

[Chorus]
They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, black is beauty
They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, they never told us black is beautiful

[Verse 2]
You ah behave and ah gwaan like you never spend 500 years pon a farm
The same chain you ah wear and a gwaan is another black life in Sierra Leone
Dem find out mama earth got gold then
Dem mine out mama earth black soul then
You work hard just fi get ah black card
Same card weh you swipe buy back your black gold then
Hol’ on, I see nuff faces long
But this is not a racist song
This is a song for the children who was never told about where their race is from
They never hear it in dem favourite songs
Everybody calm, ah say slavery’s done
What a go gwaan when the babies come
And start read ’bout things like
Dogons, black Kemet and Kush
Black kings, black senates and books
Weh teach ’bout pyramids and put
Real significance to we physical looks
So every word weh mi say black
In my world everything black
Black white, white black right back
So don’t be surprised when mi say mi king black

They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, black is beauty
They never told us that black is beautiful
They never told us, they never told us black is beautiful

Private party on that blouse
We play for the Cavs, no beers

Hit it from the back, loosen up her spleen
Say you mine, Imma take it off and raw dog

God wanted us to be lit – Red Cafe lyrics

Lyrics Red Cafe – God wanted us to be lit

God wanted us to be lit. (x7)

DopeGod back off in the city
Still keep a stick in case it get sticky
Ahhhhh
Girl you gone make me blow a bag
When I kill that thing I ain’t gone wear a mask
A boss need a boss lady versuri-lyrics.info
If her p*ssy good you know that girl crazy
Keep the fame I just want the change
You see they call me Balmain Jermaine
My hustle nonstop I got a super bag
You mad get a cape now be super mad
They hating but we lit
We still lit
Young rich nigga keep a rich b*tch.

God wanted us to be lit. (x7)

Skinny nigga but my dick good
I look professional but think hood
She only love me cause my bank full
Team full of sharks, try me boy the tank full
I got a b*tch that come from Africa
Another b*tch to hit up after her
Put them both together now they both looking so spectacular
Look at my homeboy say what you mean
I’m a bachelor I ain’t attached to her
My Taylor Gang campaign got them looking strange but I ain’t never goin’ change
I give a f*ck about the fame
Just cause I’m getting paid
Got two shows to do the same night
You know my name right.

God wanted us to be lit. (x7)

Shawty I heard you a badass
Come and hit this dope and the gas mask
My loud pack with the neighbors
Dope team I been with the Taylor’s
Shawty God wanted you to be thick
Ask how she get the a*s she goin’ plead the fifth
I know a freak when I see a freak
I beat the thing twice finna three-peat
I be trappin’ in designer
Nothing but dimes in my lineup
Nothing but stuff in my ..
And we goin’ launch a missile if they act up.

All the hate can’t stop this
God wanted us to be lit
God wanted us to be lit
God wanted us to be lit
Do your dance girl you know you bad
It’s your birthday girl you know you bad
God wanted us to be lit

Toto – Africa

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, It’s waiting there for you

[CHORUS]
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become

[CHORUS]
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

(Instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

Thundercat – Walk On By (feat. Kendrick Lamar) (Drunk Album)

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes
Don’t walk away from me

[Verse 1: Thundercat]
Fragmented memories
Sentences incomplete
That’s when she said
"Don’t wanna put up a fight anymore
I’m down to the end of my rope
And I’m freefalling
I’ll search inside myself
I need to know why I act this way"
I whispered tunes to her scream
I can’t ignore it no more

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
From my eyewitness binoculars
To Argentina and Africa
We mastered the pressure
Hazardous, harassing us
You laugh at us
More accurate at bagging dimes, now we bagging rhymes
Bodybags, price tags on your fo’head
Nine times out of ten, young niggas are nine or ten
When the line becomes thin: be a killer or fireman
Fill up the lavish pen if I needed to right my wrongs
I can’t deny sin, condolences through these palms
I remember when your cousin was coming home
My bitch, why we plotted to kill him ’cause we ain’t know him
Unfamiliar faces make niggas nervous
Convicted court cases might hit the surface
Restricted territories might come through lurkin’
We ain’t want none of that urgent call
Well, I’ma act Turk and fall on my identity, Percocets
For all the headaches, I’m ’bout to bring confetti
Tumble out this barrel soon as it ring, you ready?
That was the word ‘for we moved on ’em
Treat him like Joe the Plumber
I wonder if someone come and can see this tool on him
Immature and retarded is what you call me
Yo’ cousin wa’n’t comin’ home from the pen but from the army
If I can right my wrongs and pen this verse I read
Even though a bullet hit him in the leg, still walk on by

[Chorus: Thundercat]
At the end of it all
No one wants to drink alone
Baby that’s how it goes
Don’t walk away from me

Big Sean – Inspire Me Lyrics

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong (this one’s for you, you, you)
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me (you, you, you)

[Verse 1]
You tried to keep me away from temptation
Introduced me to The Temptations
Marvin Gaye and Isley Brothers
Dancing so hard the living room shaking
Yeah we dance in the house
My mama’s the man of the house
Mama you too good for them men
Even dad, you too good for him
Mama you know you inspire me
You deserve early retirement
You text me, tell me to take my vitamins
When I got a new love you invite ’em in
When we break up, you don’t like ’em then (no)
Loyal, loyal, swear you super loyal
Worth more to me than striking oil
You deserve the life I’m tryna show ya
I remember all of the sacrifices
Growing up in debt, but never hungry
Rich in everything except money
That’s that faith that you can’t buy
But I buy that new crib, you look right in it
I buy that new car in the color that you like it in
And play my song every single time you drive in it
That’s ’cause you inspired it (yeah)

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong, wrong, wrong
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me

[Verse 2]
I know it’s hard to get me on the line
I’m busy like every other time
Since I got a house in that other town
You wonder when I’ma come around
I know you worry about me
I give you attitude like, “Don’t worry ’bout it”
Don’t hit ya up like I don’t care about you
But I hold you down, I swear I got you
I know I got problems communicating
I probably should’ve went to school
And got that degree in communications
I should be with you on vacation
I should take you where you should be taken
Asia, Africa, Dubai, anything you want, I do buy
Just want you to know I do try
To take care of ya, mama you the one, you the one
You the moon, you the stars, you the sun
I’m so happy I’m your son
I’m so happy I’m your son
You love me since day one
Since before day one
So before the day’s done
I gotta, gotta let you know

[Hook]
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me
Can’t go wrong, wrong, wrong
You do the right thing, you know you inspire me

[Outro]
Look, mama, you know you inspire me
If I ever made you not feel like it, then this is my apology
So sorry, look, dear mama you know your son shine for ya
I’m Sean for ya, my lady
Don’t you ever let ’em talk to you crazy
Anything for the fam, how you raise me
I’m yo baby but you still my baby
Ayy
