Blinds – Amine lyrics

Dreads like Bob Marley
Hardly ever call these h**s, I’m too gnarly
Look like George Forman, couldn’t afford Jordan’s
Talk to informant, never, I’m important
Maybe I might die
Baby girl, I’m the cream of the crop
Creme de la creme, got the juice so they jock
Women in my city treat a nigga like I’m Diddy
Pimpin’ ain’t a thang, I’m independent with my lane
Aminé very fly, Aminé don’t even try
He raps and then he dips, he never singin’ for no tricks
Turn on your TV, then you might see me
Aminé don’t give a f*ck because I know that I’m the shittt. Lyrics Amine – Blinds
Every day I’m counting up my paper
Petty niggas hate, the ones in public with the vapors
Leave ’em in the dust and then we tell ’em see you later
Only people that truly know me is my mama and my maker
Shawty, you like my free form dreads
I love it when she give a nigga free form head
It’s the banana boy, favorite color you know
Yellow is the new black, and I’m Mr. Amine lyrics
Video Amine Caputo.(blinds)
Close the blinds
I want to see me shine
Don’t want to hear you chime
I want to see me glisten
Close the blinds
I want to see me shine
Don’t want to hear you chime
I want to see me glisten.

Paranoia – Samy feat. Nimo songtexte

Deine Filme hör’n nicht auf (auf, auf, auf)
Redest von Beyda und von Frau’n (Frau’n, Frau’n, Frau’n)
Sagst, eine Kugel steckt im Lauf (Lauf, Lauf, Lauf)
Doch dann steh’n wir nachts vor deinem Haus
Und du schiebst Paranoooia

Video Samy Way, du schiebst Paranoia, frag dich doch mal selbst, wieso
Du deinen Arsch heute bunkern musst
Oder waren dir die Konsequenzen nicht bewusst? Du zahlst in bar Daytona, trägst ein Navi, Al Capone
Aber gehst nie aus der Wohnung ohne Weste und Personenschutz
Denn du hast Paranoia, Schweißausbrüche, Angst vorm Tod
Drehst dich andauernd um, schiebst Filme, Halluzination
Roll deine Jalousien wieder hoch, zieh weniger Koks
Änder deine Nummer lo, geh bei deiner Mutter wohn’n
Bunker dich wo du willst, aber nichts rettet dich heut’ vor uns. Songtexte Samy – Paranoia
Zahlst den Range Rover in bar
Trägst die Daytona in Schwarz
Deine Läufer sah man im Park
Und die Pubillen hörten dich ab
Wir haben Pässe gefälscht für den Aufenthalt
Du bist eingeknickt, als sie’s rausbekam’n
Und hast über dreißig Seiten ausgesagt
Und das nur damit du wieder laufen kannst
Kann nicht verzeih’n, nicht verzeih’n, es lag an dir
Du hast die Polizei alarmiert, alarmiert.(Paranoia)
Deine Filme hör’n nicht auf (auf, auf, auf)
Redest von Beyda und von Frau’n (Frau’n, Frau’n, Frau’n)

Und du schiebst Paranoooia

Und du schiebst Paranoooia
Du schiebst Paranoooia

Beautiful war – tyDi feat. Lola Rhodes lyrics

That’s made to record
I know it’s, late
But it’s a beautiful war
I see tomorrow in a flash
Every war turns into ashhh. Lyrics tyDi – Beautiful war
Get up from the wooden floor
Already dying more and more
Last night was that really me
I closed my eyes and all I see.(beautiful war)
It’s taking me like it’s
To feel this and I swear
I know that I’ll be back again. One time felt it in my blood
And the madness had begun
Oh, such a sweet drug
You only have it once
Now every day ‘s an endless hunt. tyDi lyrics

Am I getting through
Am I only chasing another you
I feel it, that’s all I can do
So what can I do. Don’t wanna tame the lion and beast
Don’t wanna blame the timing of things
Don’t need to wait for the blessing of kings
And I don’t wanna wait no more
Take the battle to your door. It’s taking me like it’s
To feel this and I swear
I know that I’ll be back again. Hey
I’m sure you heard it before
You’ve got a, face
That’s made to record
I know it’s, late
But it’s a beautiful war
I see tomorrow in a flash
Every war turns into ash.

Desce tequila – Mc MM letra

Letra Mc MM – Desce tequila
O mundo gira, a fila anda
E alguém vai perder a vez
Vai passa a vez
Vai passa a vez.(desce tequila)
Até o dólar se valoriza
E você fica atrás de ex
Vai passa a vez
Vai passa a vez. Não tô afogando mágoa
Eu só tô curtindo a vida
Manda tequila
Desce tequilaaa. E nesse embalo da balada
Inveja quem não fez
Paz, alegria e curtição
Eu vou ficar com as três. Pode um namoro acabar
Só não pode acabar a tequila
Manda tequila
Desce tequila. Mc MM letras
