FOOLS! STOP!

Drake feat. Jhene Aiko – From Time Lyrics

[Hook:  Jhene Aiko]
What’s up? Been a minute since we kicked it
You’ve been caught up with them bitches
I don’t get it, you’re a star love
You shouldn’t have to deal with that
I’ll never make you feel like that.

Cause I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
That’s why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
So what are you? What are you, What are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love.

[Verse 1: Drake]
I needed to hear that shit, I hate when you’re submissive
Passive aggressive when we’re texting, I feel the distance
I look around the peers that surround me, these niggas tripping
I like when money makes a difference but don’t make you different
Started realizing a couple places I can take it
I want to get back to when I was that kid in the basement
I want to take it deeper than money, pussy, vacation
And influence a generation that’s lacking in patience
I’ve been dealing with my dad, speaking a lack of patience
Just me and my old man getting back to basics
We’ve been talking ’bout the future and time that we wasted
When he put that bottle down, girl that nigga’s amazing
Well, fuck it, we had a couple Coronas
We might have rolled a white paper, just something to hold us
We even talked about you and our couple of moments
He said we should hash it out like a couple of grown ups
You a flower child, beautiful child, I’m in your zone
Looking like you came from the 70’s on your own
My mother is 66 and her favorite line to hit me with is
Who the fuck wants to be 70 and alone?
Y’all don’t even know what you want from love anymore
I search for something I’m missing and disappear when I’m bored
But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
Who you settling for? Who better for you than the boy, hah?

[Hook]
What’s up? Been a minute since we kicked it

That’s why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
So what are you? what are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

[Verse 2: Drake]
Thinkin’ about Texas back when Porsche used to work at Treasures
Or further back then that, before I had the Houston leverage
When I got Summer a Michael Kors with my momma’s debit
A weak attempt at flexing, I’ll never forget it
Cause that night I played her three songs
Then we talked about something we disagreed on
Then she started telling me how I’ll never be as big as Trey Songz
Boy was she wrong, that was just negative energy for me to feed off
Now it’s therapeutic blowing money in a galleria
Or Beverly Center Macy’s where I discovered Bria
Landmarks to the ‘muses that inspired the music
When I could tell it was sincere without trying to prove it
The one that I needed was Kourtney from Hooters on P Street
I’ve always been feeling like she was the piece to complete me
Now she engaged to be married, what’s the rush on commitment?
Know we were going through some shit, name a couple that isn’t
Remember our talk in the parking lot at the Ritz
Girl I thought we had it all planned out, guess I fucked up the vision
Learning the true consequences of my selfish decisions
When you find out how I’m living I just hope I’m forgiven
It seems like you don’t want this love anymore
I’m acting out in the open it’s hard for you to ignore
But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
Who you settling for, who better for you than the boy, huh?

[Hook]

So what are you? what are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love.

Blurred Lines. | TOO HOT. | Just Very Hot. Ooh!

Man. Three of the yummiest dudes in the business. I LOVE this track and the video OMG super sexy right?! So sexy that it was banned. Robin Thicke’s new music video is too hot for YouTube. A representative for the R&B crooner said that his unrated video for “Blurred Lines” was banned from the website. The clip features nude models prowling around Thicke and rappers T.I. and Pharrell. A representative for YouTube didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment. The video is still playing on the music video website Vevo. Thicke’s unrated clip was released last week and garnered more than 1 million views in days. It became a water cooler topic on the blogs and entertainment websites. The original video was released a week before and has 1.3 million views. Thicke said in an interview that he had sought the approval of his wife, actress Paula Patton, to shoot with nude models.   picasion.com_9e29a1cd73e03aeda0b6a3b7fb99d152 Robin-Thicke-TI-Pharrell-Blurred-Lines-NSFW

Number One Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Groupie. | L.O.V.E.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ music is distinct for channeling cultural moments and refreshingly self-aware testimony through candid lyricism and expertly crafted composition. Their work has impressed and enthused a multitude of listeners, nowhere more evident than in the populist barometer of the internet, where some of Macklemore’s songs, videos and even fan-uploaded media have over one million listens and views.

The recent single “Wings” is an anthemic meditation on being of the Air Jordan generation with a lucid perspective on an otherwise trodden motif. “Otherside” offers a darkly searing portrait of his own story of addiction and the hype of substance within hip-hop culture. Crowd-favorite songs like “And We Danced” and “Irish Celebration” demonstrate Macklemore’s ability to get raucous with disarming candor and relentlessly energetic showmanship.

On their first national headlining tour in the spring of 2011, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis packed houses and sold out a majority of their shows, including those in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and a three-night run at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market, where over 3,500 tickets sold out in less than 48 hours.

Macklemore’s freshman release in 2005, Language of My World, featured production by Rhymesayer’s Budo and was well-received by circles who noted Macklemore’s fresh perspective and a striking balance of insight and levity. After several subsequent years of artistic stagnation and frustration due to substance abuse, Macklemore made a commitment to sobriety with a newfound, more intrinsic dedication to his music.

The catalyst to this change was establishing a partnership and ongoing collaboration with Ryan Lewis, an accomplished, consummate artist in design, photography, and production, who also acts as Macklemore’s touring DJ. They released the VS EP in 2009 & VS Redux in 2010, the latter reaching #7 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts. “…and quote.”

Spoek Mathambo. | Eclectic. | Genre Bending Music.

I was watching something when another thing came on [This usually happens on my television] when it hit me [I also get hit a lot] why I like Spoek Mathambo’s music! There are some Spoekie elements that remind me of Kid Cudi, of course he’s not quite as cute as THAT KID NAMED CUDI. ♡

 

“In other words, there is fucking and poetry, and it’s hard to separate the scary moments from the sublimely beautiful ones.” – Spoekie

Go out and find him and stuff. Foolstop.
