Chris Rene – Young Homie

“Open up my mind with these spoken words
Let this music heal like an overture
She’s the only one, one, one, yeah, yeah
And so I roll with her, ooh
That’s how it’s supposed to be
Living life with loved ones close to me
Shh, ahh, this is the remedy
And I got the recipe, I don’t need no Hennessy
Yeah, it’s been nine months now
Haven’t had a drink and I’m starting to see clear now
I’m putting all my fears down
I can hear the cheers now
Seeing peace signs when I look around

Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Looking at life, like how did I get it wrong
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters, when will we get along
Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Looking at life, like how did I get it wrong
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters when will we get along

Open up your eyes, look around
Homie, can you see how it’s going down?
Brothers locked up, sisters knocked up
If you wanna build your love up, put your hate down
Ooh, that’s the only way to live
Turnin’ negatives to positives
“It’s gonna be alright” Bob Marley said
Fuck the dumb shit, keep it movin’, that’s what time it is

Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Looking at life, like how did I get it wrong
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters, when will we get along
Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Looking at life, like how did I get it wrong
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters, when will we get along

Give peace to the war in the streets
Give peace to the evil that creeps, yeah
I just ride, put my hand to the sky
Live life like I’m never gon’ die
See we be fighting and fussing over nothing
So much destruction, looking like puppets
Combusting like nothing, now listen
It takes education, to change your reputation
From bad to good, you’re gettin’ better now you’re elevating
They be singing, family’s hanging, everybody’s chillin’
Not gonna stop this, living on the feeling
Man this is the real thing, tell me can you feel me
Wait ’til they drop this, dancing on the ceiling

Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Ah, what you really trippin’ on
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters when will we get along
Hey, young homie what you trippin’ on
Looking at life, like how did I get it wrong
Life’s too short, gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters when will we get along

Young homie what you trippin’ on”

Backyard Babies – I Love to Roll

Backyard Babiesillä meni 2001 lujaa. Dregenin elämänkerrasta napattua:

“Making Enemies Is Good -levyn äänityssopimukseen oli kirjattu kokaiinibudjetti, kevyesti naamioidussa muodossa toki. Se tunnettiin yleisesti nimellä “Keksipurkki”. Sen olemassaoloon viittasi levyn avausraita, sattuvasti nimetty I Love to Roll, joka päättyy kollektiiviseen snorttaukseen. kaikki bändin jäsenet sekä studion vieraat kantoivat kortensa kekoon.”

“I love to roll with the 1, 2, 3,4!

The Streets – Blinded by the Lights

Biisissä kuvataan yhtä bileiltaa, jossa vedetään nappeja ja lähdetään juhlimaan. Ehdottomasti yksi parhaista  käyttökokemusta kuvaavista biiseistä…

“Maybe i shouldnt have done the second one, i feel all fidgety and warm…
(People pushin’ by, and walkin’ off into the night)
Whoa, everything in the room is spinning, i think i’m going to fall down,
my heart’s beating to quick, i’m fucking tripping out.
I wonder whether they got in, turned away no doubt.
Who cares, this is a tune coming in, that who where hes like…”
