Flipsyde – Someday

Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
Someday we gonna dance with those lions
Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin’

[Verse 1]
They tellin’ me it’s all good just wait
You know you’re gonna be there someday
Sippin’ on Jim Beam ok
Gotta get these things one day
Till then do another line you know
Searching for that other high
Stop or I gotta steal then steal
Kill or I’m gonna be killed
I got a sack in my pocket
Conscious yellin’ drop it
You know we’re gonna lose it someday
And we tryin’ to hold it all together but the devil is too clever so
I’m gonna die you gonna die we gonna die Someday one day I said

Someday we gonna rise up on the wind you know
Someday we gonna dance with those lions
Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin’

[Verse 2]
Try to lie but it ain’t me Ain’t me
Try to look but I can’t see
Can’t stop right now cause I’m too far and I can’t keep goin’ cause it’s too hard
In the day in the night it’s the same thing
On the field on the block it’s the same game
On the real if you stop then it’s no pain but if you can’t feel pain then it’s no gain
Rearrange and you change and it’s all bad and you try to maintain but you fall back
And you crawl and you slip and you slide down
Wanna make it to the top better start now
So I hold my soul and I die hard
All alone in the night in the graveyard
Someday one day I’m gonna be free and they won’t try to kill me for being me
Hey someday

Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
Someday we gonna dance with those lions
Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin’

If you know how this is
Gonna see it’s not that easy
Don’t stop get it till it’s done
From where you are or have begun
I said keep on try a little harder to see everything you need to be
Believe in your dreams
That you see when you’re asleep

Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
Someday we gonna dance with those lions
Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin’

Saigon Ft Swizz Beatz - Come On Baby photo

Saigon Ft Swizz Beatz and Jay-Z – Come On Baby

“Come on Baby” est le premier single officiel du premier album de Saigon, intitulé The Greatest Story Never Told :

Dans cette chanson, on retrouve Swizz Beatz et un couplet de Jay-Z dans la version remix.

Un sample de la chanson “Southside Shuffle” du groupe The J. Geils Band’s est abondamment utilisée.


Just Blaze, hey, hands up

Swizzy, hey, hands up
1, 2, 3, here we go!

Microphone check one two what is this?
The Yardfather coming to give niggas the business
It’s so beyond rap, cock sucker we live this
So uhm, come on baby, come on, come on and witness
The next ten years of this shit, the slickness is deliberate
Lyrically it’s as sick as it get
I been in the pen, been in the jects, been in the??
I been in the Benz, been in the Lex, been in the MSX
Yes, I run ringers around the fraudulant type
Come here and I’ll show you that I spit on just more then a mic
I make it hard for niggas to breathe, please
These wicked emcees squeeze
Hammers like the Pampers used to squeeze, hit the DT
I Mike Tyson ya eye, put a permenant ring around it
Then go run in the booth and sing about it
Look, if I don’t hurt the nigga that play with my wealth
I’m like me on Entourage god, I’m playing myself, let’s go

Hold up, the pump will make you jump up
Put ya body in the tr-unk
(Don’t you baby, don’t you baby, don’t ya baby)
Keep goin now…
New York, and all the way to Cali
And the South’ll make ya j-ump
(Come on baby, come on baby, come on baby)
Don’t touch the boy, yup
Hold up, the pump will make ya jump up
Put ya body in the tr-unk
(Come on baby, come on baby, come on baby)
I’ll whip ya ass from…
New York, and all the way to Cali
And the South’ll make ya jump

1, 2, 3, we gone!

Four finger, three finger, two finger, one finger
Hum dinger, gun slinger, that’s what I am
Trying to get some cash in my hand as fast as I can
So you should, come on baby, come on, come on and fuck wit ya man
I got this rap shit down to a science
Alotta niggas shit is aight but they ain’t fucking with Ryan
First there was some defiance, until I formed an alliance
With Justin, he plugged me in, now I’m as hot as a fucking iron
You lying, all the gunplay talk
Knowing behind closed doors you be practicing on ya runway walk
I been in the kill, been in the cap, been in the box and back
I been in the ville, tripping the gat, trimming a boxing match
And I still walk around this fucker with not a scratch
And thats way more then I can say for alot of cats
My name’s Saigon nigga
Break bread mufucka ‘fore I break ya fucking head lil sucka

Finally I’ve arrived, so we can say our goodbyes
To the ring tone rapper, that crap’ll never survive
Its the lyrics in hip-hop, they even the odds
We gotta, come on baby, come on, come on and keep it alive
I got a microphone jones, I’m in love with it
If I wasn’t, I wouldn’t even fuck with it
I been in the rocks, been in the grams
Been in the pots and pans, I been in demand
Been in the sense I dropped contraband, damn
Simon says, “Saigon slap the shit outta suckas”
“Slam his head on the cement and stomp it until he’s??”
My son says your son scared of societies shit list
Sick as the second stage of siphylis and swift as the Savior’s scripture
I say after it’s all said and done
I’mma be way ahead of them, never see a better one
So look niglet, fall back a tid bit
Or get ya fucking wig split, this some big shit

Le riff pentatonique est repris ad nauseam mais ce morceau est vraiment entraînant. Un bon mix entre rock et rap old-school.

Parfait pour les tâches répétitives – ou pour ranger le garage.

Steve Grant - The Seventh Seal photo 1

Steve Grant – The Seventh Seal

“The Seventh Seal” est une chanson dont la musique est écrite par Courtney Driver et les paroles par Steve Grant. Le sujet est la reprise en main des rênes de la démocratie par la base, c’est-à-dire le peuple :

Le clip a été filmé en direct devant la Maison Blanche, à Washington DC, lors de la Million Mask March du 5 novembre 2013.

Yeah the time has come and we’re all awake
We see through the lies and we’re not afraid
We’re on the other side where everything is real are you prepared ? Get ready for the seventh seal

1st verse:
Yeah we can see it our freedoms getting threatened
That’s why we on the front lines and we deep up in the trenches
When they speaking to the presses we don’t believe a single sentence we don’t need them for protection we can see through their deception
From hidden ancient artifacts to futuristic missiles, the world will continue to split with humans in the middle
The revolution is simple look at yourself in the mirror you feel it burning behind your eyes inside of your spirit
We cherish this moment cuz now that we’re growing in numbers and no one knows that we’re coming we’ve summoned each other and now we’re together we’re coming with love in our hearts to start a new beginning with new vision to see through the dark and we’re winning
No more dealing with sheeple or arguing we don’t need to cuz every single one of us is all equal we the people are the ones who’s gonna see through this evil and if we’re not able to reach you we love you but we must leave you because…

Yeah the time has come and we’re all awake
We see through the lies and we’re not afraid
We’re on the other side where everything is real are you prepared ? Get ready for the seventh seal

2nd verse
It’s like a modern day inglorious bastards
We approaching the catalyst with informative rappers, infowarriors, hackers, and activists from round the globe we’re in action we’re the last ones left so you could only imagine what’s going to happen next cuz this is only a fraction and no one’s alone in this that’s why we sworn by the masses and cause a mass effect the new world order’s collapsing the force is just massive you feel it in your soul as it passes
This is the clash of the tyrants fascism zionist magnetic science galactic alignment capitol giants trying to trap us inside this mechanical climate but we adapt and survive it and that’s why we’re never looking back or behind us
It’s either gunna get darker or brighter and as we walk through the fire we become more conscience and wiser
And we’re not gunna stop why because we got the desire to topple empires we’re not gonna comply we’ve got to survive this..

Yeah the time has come and we’re all awake
We see through the lies and we’re not afraid
We’re on the other side where everything is real are you prepared ? Get ready for the seventh seal

3rd verse:
You feel it in the air the energy surrounds us some heavenly powers it was meant to be ours The momentum has never been wilder and I’ve never been prouder let’s remember the towers and put an end to these cowards
This is freedom from slavery my chains are on the ground I came to be loud and my frequencies changing
Yeah we all look different but we’re seeing the same things we speak from the same brain and we bleed from the same veins
and we believe in the same dreams their pissed off cuz we caused a leak in the mainstream and now we’re about to flood into the streets and reclaim peace but shhh meanwhile all the sheep will remain asleep
Humans are designed to fly through evolution
and now has come for the time for resolution
Nothing is final we’ll survive this execution
Steve Grant reporting to you live from the revolution

Simon O’Brien, rider BMX flatland et la Nosebleed Section (Hilltop Hoods)

Aujourd’hui, j’ai envie de parler de BMX et de hip-hop australiens !

Simon O’Brien, rider BMX flatland

En guise d’introduction, je vous propose ce clip de l’australien Simon O’Brien, un rider BMX flatland (qui roule sur du plat) :

Simon O’Brien (né le 18 septembre 1979) est l’un des meilleurs flatlander australien du moment. Il a remporté la médaille d’or des American X Games ainsi que les Australia’s BMX Games deux années de suite. J’adore ce genre de figures.

Hilltop Hoods – The Nosebleed Section

En ce qui concerne la musique, The Nosebleed Section est une chanson de Hilltop Hoods, un groupe de hip-hop d’Adélaide constitué de MCs Suffa (Matt Lambert), Pressure (Daniel Smith), DJ Debris (Barry Francis).

Si vous tendez l’oreille, vous pourrez reconnaître deux samples : le premier sert au chorus et au rythme tout au long de la chanson, il s’agit de The People In The Front Row par Melanie Safka :

I looked around for faces I’d know,
I fell in love with the people in the front row, oh how…

…Put me here, and I’m all yours,
It’s not for the money and it’s not for the applause, no.

Steve Berke - Pot Shop (Macklemore's Thrift Shop parody) photo

Steve Berke – Pot Shop

Je vous avais parlé il y a quelques temps de Macklemore’s Thrift Shop, qui est ensuite passé en boucle sur toutes les radios de djeun’s du monde.

En voici une parodie faisant l’apologie de la légalisation du cannabis dans l’etat de Washington par l’humouriste Steve Berke, filmé avec Sexy Sax Man, Towelie, David King Cain et Amanda Cerny, Playmate pour Playboy :

Im gonna smoke some weed, only got 20 dollas in my pocket
Imma huntin, looking for a pot shop, this is fucking awesome!

Walk into my house like what up, i got some good pot
I’m just pumped up got some herb from the pot shop
Ice in my fridge it used to be frosty
My friends like “Damn, that’s a stoned ass donkey!”
Rollin’ in hella high, looking like it’s fifa time
Dominating all my friends, as I eat some chili fries
Draped in a snuggie with my girl sitting next to me
Probably shouldn’t have had a big gulp full of ice tea
But shit it was 99 cents!

I be blazin and smokin it
Bout to go and get some munchie snacks, passing up on those cracker jacks
Reeces Pieces are where it’s at, Gotta get me some soda pop
Cotton mouth has been creeping up
But can’t remember where I put my keys,
Yeah, that’s what’s up.
Imma take your grandpa’s ride, Imma take your grandpa’s ride
No for real, ask your grandpa, Can I take his 65?
Deville Cruisin to my local Publix
Nothing better than rolling with 2 super fly chicks!
They had frozen burritos, I bought frozen burritos
I bought some Ben and Jerry’s, then I bought some Cheetos
Hello, Hello, my main man Obama
A couple states have just reformed their laws on marijuana
Whatcha gonna do, send the feds there? Hell no!
The DEA’s would be like “Ah, they got Volcano”

What you know about the science of marijuana?
What you know about people suffering from glaucoma?
They need it, they need it, it helps them with their condition
If don’t believe me, then just ask some eye physicians
Thank your granddad for voting for that guy Richard
Nixon is the President who made the plant illegal
But science is now showing that its medicine for people
And the private sector’s fighting to keep all of that illegal
Alcohol and Tobacco, Pharmaceutical, Prisons
I’ll take those four major lobby groups and fight those motherfuckers
They making money day and night, all those motherfuckers
And bribing congress out of sight, all those motherfuckers
They be like, “Oh, it’s immoral and unhealthy”
I’m like how many people are you making wealthy
Anti-marijuana lobbies are making all kinds of profits
And they don’t want you to stop it cause of all the special interests
I call that getting swindled and pimped, shit
I call that getting tricked by the government, that law’s hella old
So its time to update it, regulate it, and then get it under state control
Peep Game, look into my political telescope
Think it’s going to stay like this forever, nah, it hella won’t, nah, it hella won’t.

Let’s end the war on drugs, It’s time to pull the plug
These special interest groups are nothing more than corporate thugs
Let’s end the war on weed, the people have agreed.
These special interest groups have kept these laws with bribery

Imma smoke some weed, only got 20 dollas in my pocket
Imma huntin, looking for a pot shop, this is fucking awesome!

Puff. Puff. Pass.

Bluefish TV - The Parent Rap photo

Bluefish TV – The Parent Rap

Pour toutes celles et ceux qui ont (ou ont eu) ou qui vont bientôt avoir des enfants, voici une petite parodie sur l’éducation et les relations parents-enfants sur un petit air de rap:

Don’t make me count to 1-2-3
Yeah, it’s the parent rap, y’all
We may spend most of our time chasing toddlers down but
We still know how to rock the hizzle
I don’t even know what you just said

We used to be cool!
Back in the day, back on the block
Watching PG-13 movies, staying up way after dark
Then we had a couple shorties
And now we’re really flossy
Cause now we be rollin’ with our own little possie
In the mini van
Or in our little wagon
Let me throw it to the moms
Cause the little one is saggin’

I used to bling it up, I used to dress real shrewd
Now I accessorize with food that’s already been chewed
And that’s all right
I make this diaper bag look good
When I’m walking through the mall tryin’ to wrangle my brood
My PB&Js will set your world on fire
I could make you mac-n-cheese blindfolded on a wire
I’m wiping the do-do
Kissin’ the booboos
Got them eyes in the back of my head, I see all you do.
Using your full name so you know I ain’t playin’
And that’s why all my kiddo’s, they keep sayin’

Mom mom, she’s the bomb, rocking all night till the break of dawn
Cooking them peas so I’ll grow up strong
Got my second seat belt if we crash head on
Dad dad, he’s the man, working real hard to support the clan
Traded in his porsche for an old sedan
Raisin’ those brows if we get outta hand

When it come to Candyland, I’m a stone cold player
Helping out with the homework, I’m an Algebra slayer
Wrestle carseats into place without spillin’ my mug
If I tuck you in at night, you’ll be as snug as a bug
Then I’m off in the morning, to make that cheese
You may not know this yet, but it doesn’t grow on trees
Now mama take it please, what, uh, take it

I’m droppin’ “time out”s like they’re hot
Potty training all my tots
Washin’ all the pans and pots
Tyin’ little shoes in knots
Giving knowlege to your brain
Like “if your friend jumped off a train you don’t have to do the same”
Now get your toys out of the rain!
I’m cleanin’ every spill
Cuttin’ coupons like a vil
If you need parental skill now you know
We are for real!
You don’t think our rhyms are ill boy?
Then your grounded for a mil!

Mom, mom, she’s legit
Making us chill when we pitch a fit
Telling us to share and never to hit
If you can’t say somethin’ nice put a sock in it
Dad dad, he’s the guy,
never gets tired of playing “I spy”
The constant barage of kids asking “why”
And he always pretends he needs another tie

You know money doesn’t grow on trees
Why buy the cow if the milk is free
This won’t hurt you as much as it hurts me
If you want dessert eat another veggie
Close that door
You weren’t born in a stable
Sit up straight
And kiss your aunt mable
Close your mouth when you chew
Get your elbows off the table
Mom and dad of the year, check it, that’s the label

It’s the parent rap y’all
And it’s apparent
We’re great parents
Mom and daddy in the house
Mom and daddy own the house
Mom and daddy need to clean the house…

Keep your hands to yourself, boy
Don’t make me stop this beat, I’ll do it! I’ll pull this beat right over.

La vidéo est issue de It Starts at Home avec Matt Chandler et Gary Thomas, une série diffusée sur Bluefish TV.

Cette petite variation sur les gender roles devrait vous faire sourire ;-)

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Thrift Shop (feat. Wanz)

Aujourd’hui, on change un peu de style musical. J’écoute cette chanson depuis 3 mois dans un de mes nombreux onglets YouTube et en allumant la télévision hier, je me suis aperçu que c’était devenu totalement mainstream. So much for letting the cat out of the bag!

Voici donc un peu de hip-hop avec Macklemore – de son vrai nom Ben Haggerty -, né en 1983 à Seattle dans l’État de Washington, un rappeur américain d’origine irlandaise :
