Neffex – One Of A Kind Lyrics

[Chorus]
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me
So hard to find its the real damn thing
Don’t be wasting any time I got somewhere to be
Always on the grind yea you know me
Oh the crown will be mine u can call me king
A matter of time before you all love me
Finally at my prime right where I want to be
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me
[Verse 1]
Put my money where my mouth is
Ima get it now kid
Heard around town this
Sound is astoundin
Feel my heart pounding
Bass is surrounding
Think I finally found it
So I’m gonna mount it
Like an ex girlfriend Ima get it back
Make a couple racks as I make a couple tracks
Stay on the attack as I’m writing every rap
In a snap back blacked of this coke and this jack
Man I feel good dog I feel good
Woke up a little richer also with a little wood
If I could teach this shit man really wish I could
So listen up closely I’ll give you a push…
I raise hell every time my lyrics pop off
I take shots at the haters with a sawd off
Girl you better keep me up or I’ll nod off
One shot all I got I will not stop
[Chorus]
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me
So hard to find its the real damn thing
Don’t be wasting any time I got somewhere to be
Always on the grind yea you know me
Oh the crown will be mine u can call me king
A matter of time before you all love me
Finally at my prime right where I want to be
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me
[Verse 2]
It’s not enough man
I want more
I keep on doing business open every single door
I wanna be the richest so u see me up on Forbes
I can do this through my music that’s how I even the score
I don’t take it slow man
I want it bad
Every single day
I be carving out a path
Like a girl with a tat on her back all black
Ima take her right back to my pad where it’s at
I don’t ever slack off
So you better back off
I’m about to blast off
Faster than NASA
Everybody stand up
Put your f*cking hands up
That’s a demand yup
Welcome to the brand bruh
No I’m not cautious
I take a risk
And no you can’t stop this
I’m too slick
She know that’s she wants it
So come quick
Baby know that I’m on it
I don’t quit
[Chorus]
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me
So hard to find its the real damn thing
Don’t be wasting any time I got somewhere to be
Always on the grind yea you know me
Oh the crown will be mine u can call me king
A matter of time before you all love me
Finally at my prime right where I want to be
I’m one of a kind there ain’t no one like me

I used to work for the man, now I work on a plan
To convert to the man myself, put in work with the band

Put the skrilla in the bag then skrrt all the way to the bank
But it ain’t a concern when your goal in the game’s
To be makin’ a change though, ayo
I’m an innovator when I get up on the break
‘Cause I know that you’re tired of the same old, same old
Squad on the payroll, squad on the payroll
Up in the lab, where the f*ck did my day go?

Napoleon Da Legend – Chinese Creatine Lyrics

Katt Williams [intro]
“Some of us are against the Illuminati
And we are against the Illuminati at our own
Detriment. Is it a he or a she
Are you a sheep or a beast? We spending dollars on the popular brands
It’s propagand… artists selling products to fans
Does god exist? Does it Matter what you perceive? Prestige and social status climbing the social ladder
Something bad happens everybody wanna know about it
Low salaries choking on some calories
Elections racially charged
Phones on low battery
Drones surveillance, worshipping the A-list
Putting each other down when our origin is sacred
Marketing is changing our behaviors
Poverty’s contagious it’s Sodom and Gamorrha in the matrix
Smoke and black mirrors trynna stop the cash getters
It’s lame, the music games full of ass kissers
Morally bankrupt You saw me when I came up
Same bluffs now I’m back f*cking the game up
Change up nothing but the beats I rock to
Get u some Chinese creatine kid I got u
This the shit that got Jon Jones banned
Ambidextrous I can hit with both hands
I can do what no man can
I learned to survive in No Mans Land
It’s time to reprogram ya whole plan
From the shithole where they steal the gold and coltan
And the petro, along with minerals in the land
Suffer a thousand deaths for dissing the original man
Make u feel the soul in it like an old school jam
I’m the go to player kid my flow Sudan
Wolfenstein eradicate the Ku Klux Klan
Can give two f*cks just like Ruk in the Boot Camp
My shit is niche f*ck mainstream that shit is sweet
Virtually everything industry says I disagree
Perfect symmetry of beef and conscious
I don’t care about ya followers ya speech is nonsense
They killed all the leaders from Malcom to Fred Hampton
Threw a few of us some money held us for ransom
Changed up the sound a few real left standing
Last hard shit from the East was Dipset anthem
That’s heatmakers and Juel Santana
Live long like the revolutionary black Panthers
Never that flash in the pan rap
I’m pan-African pen massacres send ya ambassadors
I been crafting this 20-20 lens crafter
I been graphic I’m demolishing ya bracket
On some fantasy rap shit, hand em a classic
Random attacks, hand on my cannon I clap shit When people are against the Illuminati
They get punched in the face all the time, the press
Hates em and nobody likes em… End quote”
Napoleon Da Legend [verse 1]
The corruption is blatant
Got us suffocating blood pressure raising
Need doctors to resuscitate ya
We in a hologram polygraphs and dollar scams
Another scapegoat isis over taliban
What’s the difference between pre historic and Modern Man
Did god make us in his image just to follow man?

Muslims work to keep Ramadan community spirit and charity

Beneath Trump-WHO spat, a US-China race for leadershipAt the heart of Ramadan is the sunrise-to-sunset fast, meant to instill contemplation of God. Syria gave people a window of two days this week to move between provinces, then restored its ban.In Malaysia, Mohamad Fadhil said he was resigned to missing out on the surge in business at the Ramadan bazaar, where he and other sellers hawk food and drinks in crowded open-air markets. In some countries, cafes and cultural events are packed late into the night. Loading… “Praying is praying. Many countries have closed mosques and banned taraweeh to prevent crowds. April 21, 2020

Bahtim, Egypt
Every year during Ramadan, the Light of Muhammad Mosque sets up long tables on the street and dishes up free meals at sunset for the poor to break their daily fast. Mullah Abdul Aziz of the Red Mosque in the capital, Islamabad, ordered adherents to pack communal prayers. Worshippers go to mosques for hours of evening prayers, or “taraweeh.” Many devote themselves to charity.Muslims now find themselves cut off from much of what makes the month special as authorities fight the pandemic. This is what the Prophet Muhammad did during times of war. A new batch is being produced for this year, despite coronavirus restrictions.Iraqis have to give up a unique Ramadan tradition: tournaments of a game called “Mheibes.” In the game, teams of up to several dozen people each line up and one member hides a ring in his hand. Egypt is known for the TV comedies and drama series it churns out for the month, which are broadcast between the iftar and the pre-sunrise meal. “I think we missed the opportunity because Ramadan is starting soon.”In Pakistan, powerful Muslim clerics forced the government to leave mosques open throughout Ramadan. Charities are vital in Gaza, which has been under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade for 13 years, leaving more than half the population of 2 million under the poverty line.This year, giving has dried up.”This time last year, we had already three contracts to give food parcels to the poor. Prominent clerics, including in Saudi Arabia, have urged people to pray at home.Governments are trying to balance restrictions with traditions.Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt loosened their curfews, moving them back to start anywhere from a half hour to 90 minutes after sunset. She was at his parents about an hour away when the lockdown began six weeks ago, trapping her there.”I hope we can be together as a family during Ramadan,” he said.In Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, the government has banned millions of government employees, soldiers, and police from travelling home during the Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of Ramadan.”Fear of coronavirus has blocked us from celebrating Eid with my parents,” said Rachmad Mardiansyah, a civil servant in Jakarta.The loss of communal charity meals will particularly hurt as people lose jobs under coronavirus restrictions. The bazaars have been shut down.But he hoped the country’s lockdown will be eased so he can bring his 7-year-old daughter home. This year we don’t have any,” said Omar Saad, spokesman for the charity. A member of the other team must guess who has the ring, usually by going up and down the line, trying to read facial tics or other “tells.” The long tournaments are accompanied by sweets and tea and singing.Health authorities pleaded with Jassim al-Aswad, the longtime Mheibes champion and tournament organizer, to call it off for the sake of public safety – while praising his “preternatural abilities and unrivaled powers of discernment.”The 65-year-old al-Aswad relented.”I feel very sad,” he said. Last year, it was able to distribute 11,000 food parcels and clothes for children. God isn’t only in the mosque.”In Somalia, while people lament the loss of community, Mogadishu resident Osman Yusuf tried to find optimism. God wreak vengeance on corona, which deprived us of our most beautiful hobby.” COVID-19 is like a war,” he said.Donors can’t help everywhere when need surges so quickly.In the Gaza Strip, the group Salam Charitable usually receives donations from Turkey, Malaysia, Jordan, and elsewhere for its Ramadan relief projects. But alongside the hardship of abstaining from food and drink for hours every day, the month sweeps everyone up into a communal spirit. Muslims work to keep Ramadan community spirit and charity

As Ramadan starts this week, billions of Muslims worldwide are trying to strike a balance between the holiest month’s traditions and virus restrictions, starting with new ways to feed the most vulnerable communities. That gives time to get to Iftar, but not much: people can’t go too far to visit others for the meal unless they’re prepared to stay the night.Other countries have banned long internal travel. It’s a charity that many rely on in this impoverished district on the edge of the Egyptian capital.But it’s too dangerous in this era of the coronavirus – in Egypt and in many Muslim countries, such “Tables of the Compassionate” have been barred.So the mosque, which like others in Egypt had to shut its doors as a precaution against the virus, will use the funds that would have gone into the free communal tables to distribute packed meals and cash to those in need.”We hope this could ease their suffering,” said Sheikh Abdel-Rahman, the muezzin of the mosque in the district of Bahtim.As Ramadan begins with the new moon later this week, Muslims around the world are trying to maintain the cherished rituals of Islam’s holiest month without further spreading the outbreak. Families and friends gather for large meals at sunset, known as iftars. Majdi Mohammed/AP

A man in the West Bank city packs boxes with food that will be distributed to poor Palestinian families on April 20, 2020. The new restrictions “keep you closer to your loved ones for comfort,” he said.Not all Ramadan traditions are rooted in religion. Muslims all around the world are adapting Ramadan traditions, which usually include communal nighttime meals and acts of charity. Some are rushing to fill the void.In Kashmir, the Muslim-majority territory contested by India and Pakistan, volunteers wearing masks and gloves drop off sacks of rice, flour, lentils, and other staples for Ramadan at the doorsteps of those in need in the city of Srinagar.They try to do it quietly, so not even the neighbors know they are receiving help.”We have to take care of these people’s self-respect,” said one volunteer, Sajjad Ahmed.Taïb Socé, a famous Muslim preacher on Rfm, a private radio station in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, said that while the government is taking action, “the rich must also help the poor.””Solidarity must be in order. “Ramadan will be devoid of these popular rituals this year … Last Friday, worshippers were shoulder-to-shoulder.Still, calls by influential Saudi clerics to stay home also have an effect.”We hear on TV what the big imams say,” said Zaheer Abbas, an Islamabad resident who has been praying at home.

Somaliland’s sportswomen are breaking tape – and barriers

And by doing so, they are proving that there is no contradiction in being a Somali, a devout Muslim, and a woman athlete, all at once.“Now, this is shocking, but soon it will seem normal,” says Hannah Mukhtaar Abdilahi, one of the two young women racing for first place in the 10K run, ahead of about 60 other women who had entered the event. But it is easier to ignore when you are part of a group. In 1988, the Somali military bombarded the region’s major cities, razing them to the ground. Across the capital of Somaliland, a self-declared nation in the Horn of Africa, women are increasingly demanding space to move. In 1975, his government publicly executed 10 sheikhs who had preached against a new law that gave women equal inheritance rights.The paradox was not lost on young women like Ms. Owner Shukri Dahir, who moved back to Somaliland from Canada, opened it after struggling to find a good gym. “Think of that irony.”   Like most people from the region, Ms. But something is quietly shifting. Loading… Listen to your father. There is even a Coca-Cola plant.But for a nation that doesn’t technically exist, Somaliland is a place of many invisible borders, particularly around the lives of women. Abdi’s family fled, first to Eritrea, and later to Ethiopia, Djibouti, and Yemen, where they lived in refugee camps. Don’t take up too much space. Beneath Trump-WHO spat, a US-China race for leadershipBut Somaliland has been not existing this way for nearly three decades now, since it declared its independence amid the chaos of Somalia’s civil war, and it shows no signs of slowing down. The three dozen or so men who had finished before them all wore the standard international uniform of distance runners – stretchy athletic shorts and sweat-wicking T-shirts. Because as far as the world is concerned, this is a country that doesn’t exist. They are building gyms, joining leagues, and running races – exuding a new boldness and camaraderie while embracing their faith. Their hijabs fluttered behind them.Just a few years ago, the two women sprinting for their podium finish couldn’t have imagined this moment. Barre’s regime grew more violent, so did northern resistance to it. But here, too, something was missing. She wanted a good Zumba class. They are building gyms, starting sports leagues, going on predawn runs at the edge of the city, and winning races. Not to the International Olympic Committee or FIFA. Not to the United Nations or the World Bank. So she decided to start her own. Here is Hargeisa, something is quietly shifting. “We were destroyed by bombs we paid for with our own tax dollars,” says Jama Musse Jama, a Somalilander mathematician and publisher. Space of their ownWhile that’s the only set of rules young Somalilander women have ever known, their mothers grew up in a different world. Cover your hair.

“I realized that we can’t share space with men, because if we do, there is always the chance that they come and take it back and say it was never ours.” They are building gyms and starting sports leagues, going on predawn runs at the edge of the city and to evening Zumba classes. They couldn’t have imagined it because there was simply nothing to imagine. They are vying for first place among women runners. Ryan Lenora Brown/The Christian Science Monitor

A sign welcomes clients to Get Fit, the first women-only gym in Hargeisa. When Khadra Mohamed Abdi was a teen in Hargeisa in the late 1970s and ’80s, for instance, she was a star athlete who ran track and scored a coveted slot on the region’s all-star women’s basketball team. Glossy, blue-glass shopping centers line the dusty roads, and billboards announce daily flights to Dubai and Addis Ababa. Despite not being recognized by a single country in the world, Somaliland is running a fiercely DIY nation, with a national government that collects taxes and patrols its borders. It is easier than simply pretending that what you are doing is normal – and maybe if you keep pretending, one day it will be. Running side by side, the two young women cut a striking profile. The women, on the other hand, were dressed in long blue leggings under gauzy dresses, with baggy race T-shirts pulled over the whole ensemble. “Girls!” someone shouted, and the crowd outside the stadium parted to let them pass.It was still early in the morning, on a Friday in late February, and the city of Hargeisa shimmered with dust. By the time she returned home to her broken hometown – now the capital of the self-declared nation of Somaliland – in 1995, she’d been out of shape for many years.She was a 25-year-old single mother living in a shell of a city where all there was for young people to do, she says, was “stay inside and watch Bollywood movies, or go out to pray.” Religious leaders had stepped in to impose order on the postwar chaos, and their influence brought new rules for women. Somaliland’s sportswomen are breaking tape – and barriers

Why We Wrote This

A shift is underway in Somaliland, where women are demanding more space to express themselves. But the rules are there all the same. For the most part, laws here don’t dictate where women can go, what they can wear, or whom they can marry. “In those days we could play basketball in shorts and T-shirts, in front of mixed crowds of men and women, but we were afraid to practice our own religion freely,” she says.Somalia’s north had long been underrepresented in the country’s government, and as Mr. Her father, who drove her proudly to practices, used to tell her that “having a daughter was no different than having a son,” she says.At the time, Somalia was ruled by a brutal dictator, Siad Barre, whose regime was known for pushing progressive policies – women’s rights, education, an end to clan-based politics – at the barrel of a gun.

Hamda Abdi Daahir (left) and Hannah Mukhtaar Abdilahi (right) approach the finish line of a 10K race in Hargeisa, Somaliland. Try to find Somaliland on a map, and you will struggle. They couldn’t have envisioned the crowds or the cheers or the oversized winners’ checks that could soon be shoved into their hands. It has an army, a national police force, and a currency.Everywhere you travel in its low-slung capital city, Somaliland seems to brazenly deny its nonexistence. “This year [women] were many and next year we will be even more.”

“I don’t listen to my exhaustion,” she says. Ms. She knew why she was there. She sometimes ran at the edge of the city at dawn. – Khadra Mohamed Abdi, who set up a basketball court for young women behind walls

But Ms. She knew how to find the net. But women socialize mostly behind tall walls – in their homes and the homes of others. The girls’ shouts mingle with those of the boys just over the wall. Goats skittered out of the street as spectators gathered in small groups, watching the runners pour past.It wasn’t long before Ms. There could only be one first place.Group powerCreating spaces for women to be active in Hargeisa extends beyond 10Ks and basketball courts. And she needed a job, badly. Someone slung a finisher’s medal around her neck. Once they had reached critical mass, they slouched against each other’s shoulders and pulled out their phones to snap post-race selfies.Someone suggested lifting the winners in the air, and suddenly Ms. She laid down squishy, mat-like flooring and put up big mirrors. Daahir had established a commanding lead. The third-place winner was a teammate. The youngest of nine children, she’d been standing up for herself for a long time. With about 100 meters to go, they seemed to exchange an invisible signal. Journalists’ cameras clicked.Soon, just behind the top two women’s finishers, the rest of their soccer club began to filter in. Dahir sees her gym as one part fitness, one part community. And she’d always been an athlete. Ryan Lenora Brown/The Christian Science Monitor

Players in a girls’ basketball program in Hargeisa, Somaliland, stand for a team photo in their uniforms. They had a good life: friends, work, good schools for the kids. Someone else pushed a bottle of water into her hands. To win.Ms. Aden, who says she never saw anything un-Somali about encouraging women to be active. “Quitting wrinkles the soul.”Like many who run fitness outlets here, Ms. But it never bothered her. Dahir notices that groups of women who meet at the gym, who encourage each other through sweaty aerobics classes and monotonous treadmill runs, are beginning to form walking groups. Basketball has long been a popular sport for women in the Somali world, though cultural norms mean they can now play only out of sight of men. She lunged just ahead of her friend, Ms. And it didn’t bother her now, the men on the sidelines questioning why she was here. Abdilahi, who won the 10K the year before, was slightly more prepared. She slumped against the nearby barrier, gasping for ragged breaths as a crowd formed around her. It is easier than simply pretending that what you are doing is normal – and maybe if you keep pretending it’s normal, one day it will be. They still sometimes make comments. “So I told Hannah, if we can hold on, we’ll win this.”Growing up, Ms. When they finish their workouts at the gym, they slip their hijabs and flowing jilbabs back on and walk through the neighborhood.Men still sometimes stare. Daahir considered what she would do with her $600 winnings. Here, women can play without worrying about who is watching.‘If we can hold on, we’ll win this’On the day of the 10 kilometer race, none of the runners seemed to notice who was watching them. Gyms are a rare shared space where women can meet other women. So much so that three years ago, she and her husband packed up their house in Ottawa, Ontario, and moved back to Hargeisa with their two young children.Ms. The whole group collapsed onto the grass, dissolving into laughter.Later that evening, picking at a pizza in a Hargeisa hotel, Ms. Daahir were being swung off their feet. But everyone was giggling too hard to hold them up for long. Abdi’s property creaks open, they slip inside and bolt the lock. “We want them to thrive.”For Shukri Dahir, too, being Somali was something she was fiercely proud of. Daahir played soccer with the neighborhood boys so much that everyone joked she had an alter ego named Ahmed. Daahir. But something was missing.She wanted her children to grow up like she had, with year-round sunshine and a big extended family just down the road. But it is easier to ignore when you are part of a group. Daahir was tired. Abdilahi wasn’t cowed, either. Abdi had always been religious. Piles of headscarves and robes lie discarded nearby on the concrete stands. So she petitioned the government for a small salary and began teaching girls to play basketball on a fenced-off court at a U.N. Abdilahi and her soccer teammate Hamda Abdi Daahir had surged forward together into the crowd of men ahead. So she decided to start her own.She hired teachers from Kenya and rented a small house on Hargeisa’s outskirts, surrounded by a tall fence topped with shards of broken glass. “I listen to my belief in myself.”By the time the two young women returned to the stadium, the sky overhead was a blank blue, hot and still, and their lungs burned from dust. Ms. She saw no contradiction. Dahir had lived in Canada for two decades, since she and her family arrived there as refugees in the mid-1990s. Another group plays five-a-side pickup soccer games in a sports center started by a young woman, Amoun Aden, who believed sports could “give women the confidence to finally reach the highest levels of our society.”   But staying connected to that society was also important to women like Ms. Both women flung themselves forward, diving toward the finish. “We want them to feel safe,” she says. In another part of town, a group of women has formed a taekwondo club.Some mornings at dawn, they train by running on the fringes of Hargeisa, where the city dissolves into scrub and camels with long delicate eyelashes eye the joggers from pens made of thorn bushes. In Hargeisa, men gather in informal street-side cafes to drink camel-milk tea and chew khat, a local leafy plant that is a mild narcotic. Abdilahi and Ms. So were many of those who finished a short time later. “GET FIT: LADIES ONLY GYM,” she printed on the sign outside.   Another group is already shooting hoops at one end of the court. So as soon as the metal door to Ms. The two women had run the entire distance together, but now the moment had come for them to run their own races. Ryan Lenora Brown/The Christian Science Monitor

Hannah Mukhtaar Abdilahi is hoisted into the air by members of her soccer team after finishing first among women runners at the Somaliland 10K. What matters mostIn the end, it was Ms. Dozens of women gathered on the starting line, their numbers pinned on dresses and baggy T-shirts, joking and jostling for a good position.When the starting gun cracked, Ms. Abdilahi and Ms. Ms. It was early on a Friday morning, the Somaliland weekend, and the city around them was heavy-lidded and slow moving.

Across the globe, governments face tough choices about how to control the spread of the novel coronavirus. “When people live in houses that are very small and close together, when they work to earn enough to live off of that day, how can you expect them to stay home and stay indoors to keep an unknown virus away?”Opposite approachesAt one extreme in answering that question is Mexico, where President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for weeks brusquely ignored calls to institute nationwide restrictions on movement, or to close businesses.

It would be a very good thing if it were made permanent.” Igor Yurgens, the director of INSOR, a pro-business think tank, says one very positive development in this emergency has been regular consultations between the government and Russia’s three major business groups: the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs for big, Delovaya Rossiya for medium, and Opora for small businesses.“Of course business is getting only part of what they ask for.

The cutoff of European food imports to Russia amid the ongoing sanctions war that began six years ago afforded him and many others the opportunity to step into areas of niche production where they formerly never would have stood a chance of competing.But now Russia’s coronavirus shutdown is battering his supply lines, scattering the workforce, and severely challenging his ability to keep things going. “I’ve managed to keep most of my team.

The rampage in Canada, where mass shootings are rare, is a "heavy burden" amid efforts against COVID-19, said Nova Scotia’s premier. “We believe it to be one person who is responsible for all the killings and that he alone moved across the northern part of the province and committed what appears to be several homicides.”RCMP spokesman Daniel Brien later confirmed that 16 people had been killed in addition to the suspect.

A 51-year-old man dressed as a policeman went on a shooting rampage across the northern part of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia Sunday, killing   16 people, including a policewoman,   in the deadliest such attack in the country in 30 years. The shooting comes as an additional "heavy burden" for Nova Scotia amid virus efforts. “It’s nerve-wracking because you don’t know if somebody has lost their mind and is going to beat in your front door.”Tom Taggart, a lawmaker who represents the Portapique area in the Municipality of Colchester, said the quiet community has been shaken.“This is just an absolutely wonderful, peaceful quiet community and the idea that this could happen in our community is unbelievable,” Mr. Wortman was known locally as a denturist who divided his time between a residence in Halifax and a residence in Portapique.Mr. In the morning, helicopters flew overhead searching for the suspect.“I feel better now to know he’s in custody,” Ms. Saturday and the investigation “evolved into an active shooting investigation.”“My heart goes out to everyone affected in what is a terrible situation,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.Christine Mills, a resident of the town, said it had been a frightening night for the small town, with armed officers patrolling the streets. It is now illegal to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon. Lisa Croteau, a spokeswoman with the provincial force, said police received a call about “a person with firearms” at around 10:30 p.m. Wortman’s “lovely big home” on Portapique Beach Road. He said many of the victims did not know the shooter.“That fact that this individual had a uniform and a police car at his disposal certainly speaks to it not being a random act,” Chief Superintendent Leather said.He said they would investigate whether it had anything to do with the coronavirus pandemic. A suspect photo issued by the RCMP matches video footage of a man being interviewed about dentures by CTV Atlantic in 2014.Ms. Police later announced that he had died.“In excess of 10 people have been killed,” RCMP Chief Superintendent Chris Leather said. Wortman well, but spoke to him a few times when he telephoned about municipal issues.He described knowing Mr. Heidi Stevenson, a mother of two and a 23-year-old veteran of the force.Police have not provided a motive for the attack. Mills said. He said it was an additional “heavy burden” amid efforts to contain the new coronavirus.Mass shootings are relatively rare in Canada. He said Mr. Canada overhauled its gun-control laws after the country’s worst mass shooting in 1989, when gunman Marc Lepine killed 14 women and himself at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique college.

Mills also said that Mr. Beneath Trump-WHO spat, a US-China race for leadershipBrian Sauvé, president of National Police Federation union, said a police officer was among those killed in a shooting and another was injured.The dead officer was identified as Const. “We have not yet determined whether there is any link to the COVID-19 crisis,” he said.He said at point there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and police.The incident started in the small, rural town of Portapique, with police advising residents to lock their homes and stay in their basements.Police found many dead inside and outside the home of the first scene.Several structures were on fire in the area as well.“This is one of the most senseless acts of violence in our province’s history,” said Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil.

Nunig – Bonde Do Jaguar Lyrics

Jogando nas 11, na calada da noite, hora de caçar
Driblando empecilhos, boatengs, corte seco
Vini pique Messi, Toretto Neymar! Tic tac deixa louco, esquema na pratica

Investimos alto, queremos o mundo

Não a culpe, toma o horário do culto e
Toretto griot de obras primas
Não gosta ,nem fala,sem essa , simpático
Não fede e nem cheira, não vem de atraso
Sou ignorante e chato, a minha maneira, não mando, eu faço

Lincoln Jesser – Roll On Lyrics (feat. Anjulie)

[Pre-Chorus]
On and on
Chase the stars until we melt into the sun
Always circle back to who where I belong
[?]
It rolls on, rolls on
[Chorus]
(It rolls on, rolls on)
It rolls on, rolls on
(It rolls on, rolls on)
(It rolls on)
[Verse 1]
So we go
Building castles in the clouds above it all
I’ll be right here by your side until we fall
Til the rain comes and wash away the fall
It rolls on, rolls on
[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus][x2]
[Verse 2]
When the night falls down
And the world spins out
Roll on
When the darkness comes
And your heart goes numb
Roll on
I’ll still be here
If you reach my shore again
So roll on, roll on
Roll on, roll on
[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]
[Pre-Chorus]

Per Vers – Nej Tak Lyrics

Well
Når de gir’ mig det blik har jeg et trick
Som løser det problem det er at ha’ en pik
Det hele handler om vilje og dømmekraft
Og jeg får begge dele tilbage så snart at jeg har tømt min saft
Så når driften den er nådesløs
Er det eneste det kræver at hotellet det har trådløs
Auto-erotik er det kliniske term
Det ikk’ hjerte på smerte, det er sperm på skærm
Så’n klarer man fem dage væk
Creme, køkkenrulle, harddisc og hagesmæk
Jep, jeg’ en klamfyr li’som Emil fra lunden
Især når jeg trykker play med smil om munden
Vores drifter æder alt på deres vej
Og jeg ikk’ blind, men jeg elsker min kvinde
Så jeg takker nej
Perfekte fremmede, du så smuk og speciel
Men du ska’ ikk’ elsk’ mig I nat
Det klarer jeg selv
Så nej tak
[Omkvæd] [Intro]
Jeg elsker jeres bevægelser og jeres lemmer
Jeres blik, jeres tankegang og jeres stemmer
Alt det I viser og alt det I gemmer
Som kommer frem hvis man er en dygtig dyretæmmer
Men nej tak
(Nej tak, nej tak)
Na-na-na-na-nej, ah-ah-ah
(Nej tak, nej tak)
Nej tak, nej tak
[Vers 1]
For ser du
Jo der er honey’ies, og der’ homies
Og alle homies jagter den gode mis
Men hende der har den, har noget med show-biz
Så hun ka’ øjne til aftenens solist
Og jeg’ ikk’ særlig pæn og for travl til at træne
Kort sagt: Jeg er rim’lig klam
Men når først min fristil har fået alle til at smile
Synes de jeg ligner Simon Kvamm
Det’ naturligt, de har ører jeg har ord
Og langsomt blir’ en husmor klar til hor
Så søde rødstrømper, før I råber op
Jeg ka’ bare konstatere at de åbner op
Så snart at jeg går ud på en scene
Så ka’ de godt tilgi’ mit udseende
Fordi jeg holder mikrofonen varm
De prøver på at få mig til at glemme at jeg har kone og barn
Hun vil bare med op på mit værelse
(Hun vil bare med op på mit værelse)
Hun vil ikk’ sladre for hun har os’ en kæreste
(Hun har os’ en kæreste, hun har os’ en kæreste)
Og tanken kilder li’som biller I en spasserbuks
Men jeg går alene hjem li’som klassens duks
Li’som alle de år hvor de kun vil snakke
Og noget I mig vil ta’ ravanche
Men nej tak
Jeg siger nej tak
(Nej) tak
(Nej) tak
(Tak)
Jeg siger nej tak
(Nej) tak
(Nej) tak
(Tak)
Na-na-na-na-nej
(Nej) nej
(Nej) nej
(Nej tak)
Jeg sir’ tak, men nej tak
(Nej, nej, nej)
[Mellemstykke]
Jeg har en krog I dit kød
Vi havde krav I dit kød
Der’ krig I dit kød
[Vers 2]
Der skrevet mange sange om at være stjerne og single
Den her er helt enkelt om at ha’ en engel
Det’ ikk’ fordi jeg kristen eller kræsen
Men fordi jeg elsker hende der os’ er der efter efterfesten
Men vi bor ikk’ på en øde ø
Så den søde kløe kommer stadig på besøg
Og hvordan holder du rotten på måtten
Hvis godten er helt op I snotten og tilbyder grotten lige dér på spotten?

Superfood – Superfood Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Raisins are like mysteries, gang of ten
Yeah, I speak to leaves ’cause I haven’t got any friends
Yeah, a red bowl knows but the plate won’t show
And the colours of the fridge are all so bland
Superfood [x4]
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah I’m really getting hungry now
Need some dry chick chow
Get your phone out
And call it up
Superfood [x4]
[Chorus]
You always come around don’t you butternut
You’re always hungry
Leave the house when you’ve had enough
You’re always hungry [x2]
(Da-ba-da-ba-da)
(Yeah I’m really getting hungry now)
[Verse 2]
Yeah, a blue bowl knows but the plate won’t show
And the colours on the fridge are all so bland
Superfood [x4]
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah I’m really getting hungry now
Need some dry chick chow
Get your phone out
And call it up
Superfood [x4]
[Chorus]
You always come around don’t you butternut
You’re always hungry
Leave the house when you’ve had enough
You’re always hungry [x2]

Superfood [x6]

Lova – Own Worst Enemy Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I need some f*cked up stories for my biography
Rock stars pulling up to my eulogy
And   they   say, “Rest in   peace to the baddest f*cking bitch
That   you’ll ever gonna meat,” yeah
Always been a real control freak
You   will   never   catch me smoking   weed
Maybe I should   get high? At least I know I tried, even if I don’t like it
[Pre-Chorus]
I’m only getting drunk on my birthday
Only getting high on an airplane
The only thing I regret
Is that I don’t have enough regrets
[Chorus]
I can be my own worst enemy
Maybe that’s why I’m in therapy
I’m going crazy
‘Cause I never go crazy
[Verse 2]
I studied hard in school to always get those B’s and C’s
Even though the doctor told me I got ADD
Maybe I could change the game
Get a tattoo on my face
Wouldn’t that shit look amazing? I’m going crazy
‘Cause I never go crazy
[Bridge]
You think I’m vanilla
I think I’m a killer
I think I’m Godzilla
King Kong gorilla, ah-oh, ah-oh
You think I’m vanilla
I think I’m a killer
I think I’m Godzilla
King Kong gorilla, ah-oh, ah-oh
[Chorus]
I can be my own worst enemy
Maybe that’s why I’m in therapy
I’m going crazy
‘Cause I never go crazy
I can be my own worst enemy
Why don’t I just let me be? I’m going crazy
‘Cause I never go crazy
[Outro]
(I am my worst enemy)
I can be my own worst enemy
(I am my worst enemy)
Maybe that’s why I’m in therapy
(‘Cause I’m just me)
Me, me
(I am my worst enemy)
I can be my own worst enemy
(I am my worst enemy)
Maybe that’s why I’m in therapy
(‘Cause I’m just me)
Me, me
Ooh, enemy [Pre-Chorus]
I’m only getting drunk on my birthday
Only getting high on an airplane
The only thing I regret
Is that I don’t have enough regrets
[Chorus]
I can be my own worst enemy
Maybe that’s why I’m in therapy
I’m going crazy
‘Cause I never go crazy
I can be my own worst enemy
Why don’t I just let me be?

Drangarna – Kom Ska Vi Dansa Lyrics

Nu är jag trött på att gå här och dra
Nu vill jag att det snart skall hända mig nåt bra
Snuset har snart torkat ut i min burk
Framtiden verkar bli rätt dyster och mörk
Hästen är gammal och ungarna skriker
Jag undrar om solen går upp igen
Då kommer glade Roger, prästens yngste svåger
Han tjoar och skriker följ med min vän
Kom ska vi ta tåget, ta tåget, ta tåget
Ja, kom ska vi ta tåget till marknaden i Nol
Och fast vi inga känner är alla våra vänner
Kom ska vi ta tåget till marknaden i Nol
Jag går in och hämtar en stor butelj
Och tänker att trots allt så är det faktiskt helg
Roger han dansar så dammet yr
Jag hoppas att biljetten ej är allt för dyr
Nog för att jag har pengar, panka är ej drängar
Men jag vill inte slösa bort allt jag har
Skorna har jag fettat och håret är tvättat
Här ser ni en stilig och trevlig karl
Kom ska vi ta tåget, ta tåget, ta tåget
Ja, kom ska vi ta tåget till marknaden i Nol
Och fast vi inga känner är alla våra vänner
Kom ska vi ta tåget till marknaden i Nol
Jag skall köpa mig en kniv av äkta stål
Frugan skall få parymerad tvål
Ungarna är rena, vi får inte bli försena
Snälla elda, skyffla på med mera kol
Känn på den

1975 – Love It If We Made It Lyrics

f*cking in a car
Shooting heroin
Saying controversial things
Just for the hell of it
Selling melanin and then
Suffocate the black man
Start with misdemeanours
And we’ll make a business out of them
And we can find out the information
Access all the applications
That are hardening positions
Based on miscommunication
Oh! You’re all invited
And you’re famous
Modernity has failed us
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
Tell me something I didn’t know
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
I’d love it if we made it Modernity has failed us
And I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
I’d love it if we made it
Tell me something I didn’t know
Consultation degradation
Fossil fuelling masturbation
Immigration liberal kitsch
Kneeling on a pitch
"I moved on her like a bitch!"
Excited to be indicted
Unrequited house with seven pools
"Thank you, Kanye, very cool!"
The war has been incited
And guess what? f*ck your feelings
Truth is only hearsay
We’re just left to decay
Modernity has failed us
And I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
And poison me, daddy
I got the Jones right through my bones
Write it on a piece of stone
A beach of drowning three-year olds
Rest in peace Lil Peep
The poetry is in the streets
Jesus save us!

Tito Prince – Quand Lyrics

Tu t’es fait planter aussi étant enfant
T’as compris quand maman disait les couteaux “C’est pour les grands”
Quand j’vois ça j’me dis qu’les noirs n’aiment pas assez la peau noire
En tout cas pas autant qu’le font les Kardashian
C’est c’qui compte on est du même type
On trouve des bons partout et des mythos
Tu pardonnes facilement
Quand tu vois aussi que tu t’trompes
Quand pour toi tous les gorilles s’appelaient King Kong
Quand tu répond des questions par une question
Passer ton temps à jouer au ping-pong
Quand tu t’es rendu vite compte que ton masque vite tombe
C’est que y’a que la vérité qui comble
Ce qui me gonfles
Je l’oublie daddy
Même quand ça marque comme la voix de la pub Weetabix
Suis pas la rumeur quand c’est pas le concerné qui te l’as dit
Cris pas victoire, vis ta vie
Quand tu reconnait que t’es pauvre
C’est qu’en vrai t’es riche
Quand tu sais qu’au fond même un jumeau reste unique
Quand tu sais qu’ton histoire pourrait paraître sur Netflix
Quand j’y mets du flow comme si je venais de Memphis
Quand c’sera à ton avis? Est-c’que j’devrai attendre que les poules aient des dents? Ou bien devrai-je attendre de perdre les miennes? Quand j’ferai sourire les grands comme des enfants? Le jour où on sera tous amis
T’façon j’vois l’avenir avec ou sans ton appui
Quand sera à nous la vie? [Intro]
Yo, yo, yo, yoo
Yeah
Quand ça, quand quand…
Toti Nation…Toti Nation…
Quand ça
Quand
[Refrain]
Quand j’aurai là liberté de dire c’que je pense? Quand t’as dit “ouf” comme moi
Quand t’as appris que le Père-Noël n’existe pas
Et qu’il ne passe pas que chez tes amis blancs! Quand j’ferai sourire les grands comme des enfants? Pour vous dire, je rigole même quand j’le pense
Quand ça, quand, quand quand, quand? C’est déjà le cas mon ami
Y’a plein de roi sous le soleil et Louis XIV vous l’as dit
Quand je dis Toti Christ c’est mon blaze
Je t’avais prévenu que j’dirais le nom de ma planète comme Bruno Mars
Si tu crois en rien, je viens de te quer-cho mais bon croire en rien
C’est finalement croire en quelque chose
Quand y’a pas à se couper le bras pour une paire de shoes
Des chaussures qui m’obéissent c’est tout ce que mes pieds chaussent
Quand c’est pas les autres la cause de ta misère
Ta vie devient lourde quand tu la prend à la légère
[Outro]
Quand j’aurai là liberté de dire c’que je pense? Ou bien devrai-je attendre de perdre les miennes? Pour vous dire, je rigole même quand j’le pense
Quand ça, quand, quand quand, quand? [Couplet unique]
Quand t’arrives au stade qu’tu pense que là tout est fini
Et qu’tu vois qu’en vrai c’est là qu’tout commence
Quand t’arrives au stade où tu découvres que les 4 vérités
Sur la vie sont loin d’être celles que tu penses
Quand t’arrives au stade où qu’tu comprends
Qu’à l’époque des films en noir et blanc
Les gens ne vivaient pas en noir et blanc! Pour vous dire, je rigole même quand j’le pense
Quand ça, quand quand quand ? Pour vous dire, je rigole même quand j’le pense
Quand ça, quand quand quand? Est-c’que j’devrai attendre que les poules aient des dents?

Lyrics For Setting The Tone For Exile By Thandi Ntuli (Live at Jazzwerkstatt )

With all the rage, the trauma woven in their DNA? Lil Kesh
Black love, a real thing
Black love, a real thing IVD

Even as we place our final full-stop
Close the lid of our drying pens
And attempt to shut the book
Convinced that we have fully concluded our analysis
On the effects of our passion
Trying to quantify these effects
So that we can attempt to systematically heal
All that is a symptom of our trauma
[DOWNLOAD MP3]
Even as we attempt to move on
Because our pain thresholds protest
No more, I cannot dwell here anymore
As we try to strip ourselves from the cloak of false-self
That we have been forcefully dressed with
An attempt to gain an understanding of our limitless truth
Just as we reach that point
When our wings once again
Feel strong enough to take flight
A crash! How could one insignificant relationship
Love all your pain away? With all the rage, the trauma woven in their DNA? Black love, a real thing
Ill-equipped, we find ourselves in a boxing ring
Open hearts, healing arms
Left wounded by the blows of men who couldn’t love
Who wouldn’t love, who couldn’t love
And how could they? Unannounced, unexpected
And a startling bolt of lightning across the dark sky awakens us
READ ALSO:   Lyrics For I’m Sorry By The Big Hash
When the devil, we so badly tried to exorcise
Slithers into our protective homes
Our beds, our love
And once again, a blood-stains
Wounds resurface, more potent than before
We realize that, perhaps, the real trauma yet to be fully realized
Lies in this bashing of bodies and in the clashing of souls
In the clashing of bodies and in the of bashing souls
In this detrimental lack of awareness
In our zombie-like existence, our exile
Our yearning, our anxiety, our loneliness, our pain silenced
In this unspoken sense that we are, in fact
Living amongst ghosts of our spiritual genocide
The most dangerous of all wars
Packaged as the realization of this man named brand of freedom
And the conditioning that has brought us
To unconsciously embrace the illusion of our apartheid
Even within the safety of our own homes

Tunnel vision, telling visions
Call me a prophet

I’d rather be an outkast
I don’t wanna fit in
Honestly , the studio the only place I belong
Execution time now
I been waiting too long
Catch a vibe
Negative energy better be gone
Intellectual don
Tell my haters we on another level
I’m on a battle with the devil
My mind is a weapon
Slow death upon Mcs like a venom
420 mass murderers 9/11
AMA lyrical beast that’s a fact
Let the critics criticize my pockets getting fat
I get what I give and I give what I get
Dead bodies on the ground when it goes ratatat! I mean who want smoke show yourself
I wouldn’t wanna try
I stick on point like the ears of an Elf
My rhymes hit harder than moms African
