Tedashii – Messenger

[Intro]
Cardec
One time for the Osage

[Chorus]
I’m just the messenger
I’m just the messenger
Yeah I’m the next one up
I know the way I know the way
Top floor I’m stepping up
Forgive me for messing up
Lights out like prisoners
They want the blessings but I want the one they from
I’m just the messenger
From the beginning there is no pretending yeah I am original
I lost my son but I’m still pressing on when I wanna just give it up
Here for my kids I’m trying to live this life it’ll mess you up
Say what you will I’m keeping it trill I’m here that’s a miracle
Live in the light let’s get it tonight yeah

Top floor I’m stepping up
Forgive me for messing up
Lights out like prisoners
You want the blessing but I want the one they from
I’m just a messenger
He is no fake, those Yeezy’s wait
They want to get me out
Just cause I speak my mind
Mind

[Verse 1]
Run it race the clock’s racing
Pick up the pace time’s wasting
God is watching but He patient
Take for granted what He saying
He make the play but ain’t playing
Out the way with yo plans
Throwing shade like Ray Ban
He at the end like Amen
They say they know but they doubt it
I don’t want no fakes around me
CZ with diamonds that’s cloudy
Stay taking L’s Ronda Rousey
Roll with my squad like it’s loudy
Step in the place and it’s crowded
My section known to get rowdy
They can’t hop in till I’m out it
Flexing, yeah tell ’em that they can till they can yeah
Always saucing all day fresh up out the pan yeah
Spill it till they get it drop it poppin’ bands yeah
Life is short don’t overlook it understand yeah

[Chorus]
I’m just the messenger
I’m just the messenger
Yeah I’m the next one up
I know the way I know the way
Top floor I’m stepping up
Forgive me for messing up
Lights out like prisoners
They want the blessings but I want the one they from
I’m just the messenger
I’m just the messenger
Yeah I’m the next one up
I know the way I know the way
Top floor I’m stepping up
Forgive me for messing up
Lights out like prisoners
They want the blessings but I want the one they from
I got to live it cause this life the only one
You got to get it like yeah yeah yeah

[Verse 2]
Don’t shoot the messenger
I had to bring it up that’s what you need me for
Can’t take the message out
I go the extra mile run it like marathon Malcolm they X me out
I know the business it’s war in these trenches they come with they weapons out
They got agendas so watch for pretenders who say they can help you out
This world is dark but I’m here with the spark and that’s how we gon’ burn it down
I came to shut it down
Down
Tell ’em I got it, I get it
Devil is real and he busy
Get Out the world trying to kill me
You can not handle the real me
I say the system is rigged
I see injustice is real
This ain’t just something we feel
When one our kids get killed
Hands up don’t shoot
Man down don’t move
Stand up go thru
Ransomed no loot
Blood bought like new
Same road new shoes
Unashamed whole crew
All I do is speak truth

Jonwayne – Ted Talk (Rap Album Two Album)

[Verse 1]
You never seen a man so calm in your life
They afraid of this might
And I got the type of mind to grind into that white light
I rock the mic inside the china shop and spit that bull shit, this ain’t no bullshit
It’s eating past after the stomach full shit
No eating ass, no groceries, I ate at restaurants
They serve me well since I’m a baby of the Kant renaissance
You may recall my marvelous reconnaissance
I never forget, like elephants on 4chan
Remember I’m a poor man, but got a fucking kingdom up in here
Where the beer flows like memes, seeded without a peer
See I had it up to here, all these doubters in my ear
Tryna tell me I don’t have the whole world up on my spear (what you do?)
I Van Gogh ’em, pretend I don’t know ’em
Too busy showboatin’ to roast ’em, the flames floatin’
No jokes, see my quotes remain potent
Even in the casket, I’ll be one to close it
I’m a poet and I know it, see I could do some good
But these demons in my ear make me feel misunderstood
Lord knows, my intentions are hood
And I rub it in a little bit more than I should
But what would you do if you were great and you knew it?
I put up a page, I get in my range
I open up a vein and let a river run through it
You call it music
(that’s close enough)

[Hook]
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Guaranteed to rock, rock, rock the mic
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Then take a pause

[Verse 2]
I get my dinner on from intercom psalms and scratch an itching inner palm
Give a Ted Talk about shitting on ’em and spitting on and on
They wonder what arithmetic I’m riffing on
They wonder what this written on
"since when he get his Merv Griffin on?"
I wonder who I’m pissing off
Bump missives in the whip, run crystals for the glisten
Dump crystal down the sink up in the kitchen
I run missiles in my whistler
Children for my pisser
When these women call me Mr. J know I came to slay like a gay man
Shade like a Ray Ban, you know I’m here to stay
You can find me ’round the way like a waistband
Writing ’bout my stay on some ‘how to be a man when you hate man’
L.A., the home of human spray tan
Heard it from the grapevine in that gray van, with many a gray band
I give a damn on some frankly my dear, whoever made me had some great ideas
My parents built me, yeah I’m straight IKEA
Had this voice to God since I was five feet uh
Drinking wine, eating divine pita
Kissing that cross, now they kissing my crosshairs
When I rap on beats that sound like a video game boss lair—shit
In my pauses I hear Ric Flair trippin’
Yeah my quips could carry trips like some big bear visions
Yeah these words are so sharp I give some thin air stitches
Got a hole in space-time where I state my business

[Hook]
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Guaranteed to rock, rock, rock the mic
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Hoe, one two-’til my voice is hoarse
Then take a pause, and you know, of course
