The Game – Black Jesus – Lyrical Breakdown

27 Nov

If you’re reading this you’re probably already informed that west coast rapper The Game will soon be dropping  his 5th studio album Jesus Piece (due December 11). But you may not know that in leading up to this release he has initiated his own “Sunday Service” promotion that began at the end of October, where he’s promised to give away at least one new song each Sunday until the album drops! Most of these songs, including “BLACK JESUS“, did NOT make the album but still follow along with the theme. So how do you feel about The Game referring to himself as Jesus? Is it simply entertaining or straight up blasphemous?! Enjoy this Lyrical Breakdown and leave your comments below!

 

Lyrics:

CHORUS 

Uh, I got black cars,

black broad, black yeezy’s

Black in the back ??

Black presidential rolls,

black pieces

You know why?

Cause I’m the young black Jesus

Yeah, young black Jesus

You know why?

Cause I’m the young black Jesus 

Yeah, the young black jesus

Yeah, the young black jesus 

Verse 1:

Yes sir, the young black Jesus


Walking on water

in them young black yeezys


Five albums five masterpieces


Can’t leave rap alone

the game needs it

Can’t leave gats alone

I gotta family


Nigga that sold grams

nominated for a Grammy


I gotta thank myself, I’m Jesus.

 Me and my apostles

play the corner like Revis

Now I’m on Noah’s ark

floating through Saint Regis

 You know how Jesus do

Pull up on you in that

nave-blue coupe,

hop out, take pursuit

Lamborghini merci

beaucoup, mwah!

 Couldn’t do it without Jesus

Got a passport

fuck I need with a visa?

Got a black card

 fuck I need with a Visa?

I don’t fuck with ‘Bron

but got on them South Beaches

CHORUS (once)

Verse 2:

Pull up, holy ghost,

they have seizures

Hop out, gun smoke,

the gat sneezes

 Niggas see me in real life

 say “oh Jesus!”

Might just save your life

and not squeeze it

Heathen ain’t supposed

to be breathing

The hood crucify me

came back as black Jesus

 Audemar shitting on niggas,

that’s feces

Brown Mase tangerine guts,

that’s Reese’s

 Tune on the album ain’t

have to pay for the feature


That’s the way it go down when it’s

YMCMB shit
Stunna my nigga came into the game

 and Master P shit


Bought a red Ferrari

 for the young black Jesus


Give me Stevie’s eyes

black Jesus


So I can see why they killing

in the Chi black Jesus


How did Chris Lighty really

die black Jesus?


Don’t answer that,

he’s probably in heaven

where BIG is…

CHROUS

 

 

BIG K.R.I.T – King pt. 2 – Lyrical Breakdown

13 Apr

History remembers KINGS! Big K.R.I.T shut it down with this one! Leave your comments below, and Enjoy. Lyrics:

History remembers kings!
God bless you all!

I don’t mean to burden you
It’s just, umm, I had a conversation with a wise man
He asked me a question like, “How could you be in the position to say so much, but say so little,” so this is me saying a lot

[Verse]
I was raised from the Bible belt, I tighten that, a titan’s back
Same game they claim that they killing, I’m breathing life in that
Take heed, the people you lead when you reciting that
You will die for what you believe, so where’s your rifle at?
Never was entertained or influenced by all the drama
Hard to bury your partna, but harder to console a mama
That only want the best for her child
Save a place for his soul Lord, he ain’t been to church in a while
Said that Jesus can’t save him and ain’t no church in the wild
His anger fueled his ambition, I swear he forgot how to smile
“Hustle hard, hustle hard,” that’s what he said
While counting up the bread that he fell for, now he dead
And they can’t bring him back
They locking up my people, shawty, racks on top of racks
Public housing just too crowded God, shacks on top of shacks
Most pastors misleading people that listen
When all us black folk have is music and religion
A sense of self-respect
Lost in the need to express ourselves through money, drugs, and sex
I’m a product of the same, so I understand the checks
That says that she’ll be down to fall victim to her flesh
If I’m worth it she’ll undress
One night of slumber, harsh rains and violent thunders
As she leaves, “Is she clean?” Lord, I often wonder
See men turn mice from results, the clinic humbles
Plan B pill, God damn, your stomach rumbles
Laugh it off, but she’ll keep it due to my numbers
So be it, I’ll oversee that he runs and never fumbles
If it’s a girl, I’ll give her the world and sunny summers
And show her how to scrap in case a nigga jump on her
Protect them from the evils that TV often can feature
Beware of predators in this jungle, they out to eat ya
We all kings and queens, don’t let no one else beseech ya
Life can throw some bows that leave ya swole, don’t let it beat ya
Don’t let them feed you that bullshit that they fed me
Don’t follow the road I took, look where it led me
I speak my mind and my heart, I bet they dread me
In a world of give me what you got, I always said free-dom
You been starving your soul so long that you should eat sum’n
You concerned with your followers, then lead them
To a well that only you and yours drink from
I build my own, f-ck your playbook
Kingdom, that’s how I feel, I’m strong in faith
Don’t need for you to say that God ain’t real
Some things you just shouldn’t play with
My soul patient cause success ain’t ever save shit, face it
We all born to die, yea that’s basic
But living fast and dying young ain’t salvation
You keep on with that blasphemy and I’ll keep on with my praying
If you think that Lambos hot in the summer, well hell’s blazing
My mind frame blown cause my brother says that I’m on
He bored at the crib while I’m wishing that I was home
Said he die for the chance, and I reply to him he was wrong
Told him he could do better than me then hung up the phone
The youth, will surely go to war for what you own
To them it’s more than real, but to you it’s just a song
But to you it’s just a song
But to us it’s just a song

[Outro]
I’m guilty of the same
Cause there is no one person is to blame
I promise I’ll change
I pray you do the same

Lana Del Rey & Gatye – Born to Die/Somebody that I Used to Know – Lyrical Review

6 Feb

After hearing these songs, I am a new fan of indie singers Lana Del Ray (who’s name I pronounced wrong in this video, sorry :-/ ), and GotyeBoth of these tracks offer loads of food for thought. One may get you depressed, while the other wil help you release some of your concealed anger. Either way, both “Born to Die” and “Somebody that I Used to Know”  will likely earn a spot in your heart. Check out my lyrical review, and listen to the songs here & here. ENJOY!

Kevin McCall & Chris Brown (Rest of My Life) – Breakdown

25 Jan

I received this request from a subscriber on Youtube wasn’t quite sure what Kevin McCall & Chris Brown meant. I spoke to Kevin McCall personally to get verification, so rest assured, this info is correct. Enjoy!

Lyrics: (Kevin McCall)

Baby love is getting cold, hold me.
My head is down, silk sheets, many tears…
Might have to go away tonight,
Cause I got a feeling, my days are numbered
This might be the day
I close my eyes for eternal sleep,
No more waking to sunday morning,
Now, lived to learn, learned a lot,
Tonight, I’m clocking out..

[Chorus:]

This is my last kiss, my last wish,
My last chance, my last dance,
My last kiss to give you,
My love is the last time I’m holding you…
Spend the rest of my life with you tonight,
Spend the rest of my life with you tonight,
Spend the rest of my life with you tonight,
Spend the rest of my life with you tonight!

(Chris Brown)

The walls are closing in yeah,

I’m wondering when I’ll see you again.

And you might be wondering why!

So this time I won’t be right back.

But I’ll be a shining star…

A memory in your heart.I close my eyes for eternal sleep,

No more waking up the sunday morning,
Now I lived to learn, I learned a lot,
Tonight I’m…

[Chorus:]I close my eyes for eternal sleep,
No more waking up the sunday morning,
Now I lived to learn, I learned a lot,
Tonight I’m…
[Chorus:]
