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
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 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]
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.

Drake. | Nothing Was The Same.

nothing-was-the-same-cover

But,

I’m hardly the one to ask if I like a new Drake track because well, I like drake and I’m the most unbiased person when it comes to music, until I hear a bad song but anyway… I like Drake’s Wu Tang Forever and looking forward to his new album Nothing Was The Same too.

 

FOOLSTOP.

D.O.P.E Kids.

Two of my favourite hip hop tracks at the moment. It’s also very coincidental that they’re also my favourite music videos at the moment too. From SA to the USA, dudes making DOPE music.

FOOLSTOP.

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

“You Reflect in This Heart of Mine.” – Mirrors.

So, my all time favourite pop-crush Justin Timberlake is back.

Cheesy as I was as a teen in high school drooling over this was then cutie now grown ass hottie from ‘N Sync, I’m back to sleepless nights over this one track “Mirrors”.

Justin’s “Mirrors” is the returning popstar’s latest single is just the right kind of vintage.

Imagine being a newlywed and wanting to write the most epic song ever in honor of your life partner. “Mirrors” is Timberlake’s version of that anthem — how can you not think of the singer’s recent wedding photos alongside Jessica Biel when he endlessly repeats, “You are, you are, the love, of my life,” as if he had just soaked in the splendid finality of his romantic situation? Compare this album’s second single to “Justified’s” second single, “Cry Me A River,” and aside from the steady presence of Timbaland’s fantastically cluttered production, the difference between the song is clear: 10 years ago, Timberlake was broken, and now he is whole.

“Mirrors” is the song the world has been wanting from Justin Timberlake since he first announced his comeback a few weeks ago. Though his sepia-tinged performance at the Grammys of new tracks “Suit & Tie” and “Pusher Love Girl” was a joy to watch and hear, they aren’t songs to get particularly enthused about. The Motown inspirations and “Rat Pack in Vegas” stylings are very accomplished throwbacks destined to fill the dancefloors of formals and weddings for months to come, but they fall a little flat on their own. “Mirrors”, though, points to the kind of expansive mid-tempo ballad that found fine expression in “Until the End of Time” on FutureSex/LoveSounds.

“Mirrors” also shares similarities with the break-up missives “Cry Me a River” and “What Goes Around… Comes Around” with its mix of a beatboxed rhythm and tight string arrangements, but it’s completely geared for an arena-sized, love-conquers-all message: opening with a swelling organ and electric guitar and featuring multi-tracked vocals that sound like a crowd or choir singing behind him. The bridge before the final chorus crescendo – “Yesterday is histor, Tomorrow is a mystery” – really captures Timberlake’s satisfyingly huge and suitably vague emotive leaps, and the segue into second half of the track is perfect: breaking all the straining emotion into a slow chant and an easy falsetto, allowing Timbaland the space for some flourishes and flashes to drive the song home.

Speaking about The 20/20 Experience in a Rolling Stone Q&A with a couple of high schoolers enrolled in a music industry program, Justin Timberlake revealed that: “the average length of each song is seven, eight minutes […] It’s not so much a narrative or a story, but sonically we really made it to listen from top to bottom”. The belting Mirrors is the clearest example of this ambition so far, and really raises hopes that the new album will be vintage JT – rather than simply vintage.

Beneath Your Beautiful. – Labrinth.

 

“Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?”

-Labrinth.

“Lord knows, Lord knows!” – Drake.

Drake – Lord Knows Lyrics.

[Intro: Rick Ross]
All we wanted was opportunity
(Just Blaze!) Lord knows!

[Verse 1: Drake]
It’s your worst nightmare, it’s my first night here
And this girl right here, who knows what she knows?
So I’m going through her phone if she go to the bathroom
And her purse right there, I don’t trust these hoes at all
But that’s just the result of me paying attention
To all these women that think like men with the same intentions
Talking strippers and models that try to gain attention
Even a couple pornstars that I’m ashamed to mention
But Weezy and Stunna my only role models
Haffa and Jordan my only role models
That’s why I walk around with all this gold on
And every time I run into these niggas they want no problems
Bottom sixes and chains, and some bracelets and rings
All of the little accents that make me a king
I never hear the disses they try and point out to me
But it’s whatever if somebody wan’ make it a thing
I’m more concerned with niggas thinkin’ about Christmas in August
Do anything to buy gifts for they daughters
Get some shake, a brick in the press
And chef it like Mrs. Fields; they’re making the cookie stretch
I know it so well, I know the hustle so well
Stunt like I’m working overnighters right by the motel
Drug money outfit, record clean
Spend it all on me and my fuckin’ team
Matchin’ Rollies for real, matchin’ Rovers for real
Places they say they’ve been, we’ve actually going for real
I’m really killin’ shit, fuck all the jiggy rapping
I’m going trigga happy just to see my niggas happy
Mixtape legend, underground kings
Lookin’ for the right way to do the wrong things
With my new bitch that’s living in Palm Springs
Young ass nigga, lifelong dreams
They take the greats from the past and compare us
I wonder if they’d ever survive in this era
In a time where it’s recreation
To pull all your skeletons out the closet like Halloween decorations
I know of all the things that I hear they be poking fun at
Never the flow though, they know I run that
Fuck you all, I claim that whenever
I change rap forever, the game back together, yeah
YM, I remain that forever
In the same place my brother Wayne at forever
I’m a descendent of either Marley or Hendrix
I haven’t figured it out cause my story is far from finished
I’m hearing all of the jokes, I know that they tryna push me
I know that showin’ emotion don’t ever mean I’m a pussy
Know that I don’t make music for niggas who don’t get pussy
So those are the ones I count on to diss me or overlook me
Lord knows, Lord knows, I’m heavy, I got my weight up
Roberson boost your rate up, it’s time that somebody paid up
A lot of niggas came up off of a style that I made up
But if all I hear is me, then who should I be afraid of?
Bought a white Ghost, now shit is gettin’ spooky
Very, very scary, like shit you see in the movies
In this bitch all drinks on the house like Snoopy
That’s why all the real soldiers salute me
Trill nigga, for real

[Interlude: Rick Ross]
You know I love this
YOLO, you only live once
I’m going so hard my nigga, I swear homie
Everyday is another opportunity to reach that goal

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
I fell in love with the pen, started fucking the ink
The hustle’s an art, I painted what I would think
Still allergic to broke, prescription straight to the paper
Destined for greatness, but got a place in Jamaica
Villa on the water with the wonderful views
Only fat nigga in the sauna with Jews
Went and got a yacht, I’m talkin’ Carnival cruise
And these niggas talking like hoes, they mad they not in my shoes
It’s the red bottom boss, came to buy the bar
Every bi-week, shit, I’m bound to buy a car
Murder-cedes Benz or that bubble double R
Headlights flicking, looking like a falling star
Everyday them hammers bang, whipping yay like Anna Mae
I run the game but the ladies think I’m running game
Mink coats make your woman wanna fornicate
Rozay and Drake, I’m getting cake, nothing short of great.

 

One of Drakes realest tracks.

FOOLSTOP!
