50 Cent – Still Think I’m Nothing (feat. Jeremih)

look like I done dipped it in water, hard
Like me when I done dipped in your daughter (GOD!)
From playin’ with Hot Wheels to collecting cars
That shit in the duPont REGISTRY’s in my yard
Somehow the bullshit shifted
Now the motherfuckers calling me gifted
And I be like

[Pre-Hook: Jeremih]
Look back
Look where we started from
It’s all the beginning
They ain’t tell me why we come this far
Now they feel it in the air
When it’s 2AM and the sky is filled with stars
Driving down the boulevard
I remember when…
[Hook: Jeremih & 50 Cent]
They used to tell me that I wouldn’t be nothing
Yeah
Now Lamborghinis and Porsches we stunting
Look at me now nigga
Pull up, get your bitch, in drop top we roll out
Y’all niggas ain’t shit
They all act like they ain’t know bet they know now
I’m up nigga [Intro: Jeremih & 50 Cent]
Oh yeah
Look at you, you lil’ dirty ass nigga you ain’t shit

[Hook: Jeremih & 50 Cent]
They used to tell me that I wouldn’t be nothing

Pull up, get your bitch, in drop top we roll out
Y’all niggas ain’t shit
They all act like they ain’t know bet they know now
I’m up nigga
[Verse 1: 50 Cent]
If I ever said fuck you nigga I meant to
When you come up how I came up, life’s not gentle
See that tear in my mama eye, that meant the rent due
I prayed on it, God didn’t say nothing back
Saw that cocaine you had, we turned it to crack
Had a couple grams of diesel, we was just tryna make it
A brown sheepskin on, niggas was tryna’ take it
You know the kind of drama that come with the leather bomber
Niggas try to jump you gotta stay with the lama
Suckers shit niggas get shot over some nah, nah
If niggas want problems I’m sayin’ this no problem
I catch ’em on the late night and dearly depart ’em

[Pre-Hook: Jeremih]
Look back

[Verse 2: 50 Cent]
I remember all the shit you said to me ’cause it hurt me
Then it helped me ’cause then I was down to do the dirt
See the knots in my pockets boy, I go the cash route
I see you with your skinny jeans, punk, with your ass out
And I got all kind of money now
Look what you made me
Got a different type of temper, man a nigga get crazy

George Nooks Cocaine Trial Pushed Back

“He (Nooks) has been disputing what has taken place and that has not changed. The singer is currently out on bail so the judge also extended his bond. The case for the embattled reggae singer turned up for court on Wednesday where the long awaited trial was set to begin. The Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court judge, Justice Vaughn Smith, rescheduled the case to March 27, 2018. George Nooks was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine in May of this year. I don’t think I will be able to comment on the plan moving forward for the defence,” Martin said. George Nooks cocaine trial has been pushed back to March of next year. A search was conducted and approximately two ounces of the illegal drug was found in the bag. He was booked for breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act and subsequently granted bail to the tune of $80,000. According to the police report, Nooks, 56, was stopped and search by officers who were carrying out an operation in Widcombe Heights, Kingston 6. The reggae icon’s attorney, Donahue Martin, says his client disputes what took place on the day of the arrest. Cops say that he was acting suspicious and then threw a bag he was carrying inside his car.

Taylor Swift – …Ready for It? (BloodPop® Remix) Lyrics

[Verse 2]
Knew I was a robber first time that he saw me
Stealing hearts and running off and never sayin’ sorry
But if I’m a thief, then he can join the heist, and
We’ll move to an island, and
And he can be my jailer, Burton to this Taylor
Every love I’ve known in comparison is a failure
I forget their names now, I’m so very tame now
Never be the same now, now
[Pre-Chorus]
I, I, I see how this is gon’ go
Touch me and you’ll never be alone
I-Island breeze and lights down low
No one has to know (no one has to know)
[Chorus]
In the middle of the night, in my dreams (Night, in my dreams)
You should see the things we do, baby (We’d do, baby)
In the middle of the night in my dreams (My dreams)
I know I’m gonna be with you, so I take my time
Are you ready for it? [Post-Chorus]
Night, in my dreams
We’d do, baby
Yeah, in the middle of the night
Baby, let the games begin
Let the games begin
Let the games begin
Baby, let the games begin
Let the games begin
Let the games begin
[Outro]
In the middle of the night, in my dreams
You should see the things we do, baby [Verse 1]
Knew he was a killer first time that I saw him
Wondered how many girls he had loved and left haunted
But if he’s a ghost, then I can be a phantom
Holdin’ him for ransom, some
Some boys are tryin’ too hard, he don’t try at all though
Younger than my exes, but he act like such a man, so
I see nothing better, I keep him forever
Like a vendetta-ta
[Pre-Chorus]
I, I, I see how this is gon’ go
Touch me and you’ll never be alone
I-Island breeze and lights down low
No one has to know
[Chorus]
In the middle of the night, in my dreams
You should see the things we do, baby
In the middle of the night, in my dreams
I know I’m gonna be with you, so I take my time
Are you ready for it?

KRS-One – Freedom Lyrics

[Intro: KRS-One]
Feel this, a new experience
And your approach to the lyrics
To the beats and the rhymes
KRS
[Verse 1: KRS-One]
After 19 years of rocking, how do you rank me? Poorly or greatly? I’m no Johnny-Come-Lately
It’s the people that pays me
G-O-D is what raised me
To think that you could blaze me, you must be more than crazy
Radio is Fugazi, XM satellite plays me
Criticism don’t faze me, being rich don’t amaze me
These princely rappers, they gettin’ parked like Paisley
I’m two times the effects like Scoop and Crazy Drazy
I know that no man out there could save me
So I save myself with knowledge of self and [?] that God gave me
No coulda shoulda or maybe
I’m in 2024 with the adult version of your baby
The path of life is so wavy, you can not be lazy
Or mindless like a ship sailing eternal gravy
Through hip-hop we speak so plainly
So let’s unite and sail through life as a navy
[Hook: Dax & (Triune)]
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
Another day (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
The only way (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)
[Verse 2: KRS-One]
All these people looking at me
Walking with me, staring at me
This is how we work, flash film glaring at me
Little children very happy, I’m signing books CDs
Now I’m signing t-shirts, and yeah my hair stay nappy
Living giving advice on living your life
Oh no, you don’t have to be stopped
I’m talking walking working
Inserting energy for certain, not an average person
Temple of hip-hop to hold the over boulder
Money folder for soldier, big up Tony Toker
I don’t bridge or poker, not a sauna soaker but come on over
Let’s make a plan to get free as we can
Cruisin’ the span of this land [?] in a new range rover
Get out the city my friend, they have no pity my friend
The way we treat each other is silly, my friend
When you consider the millions of men and women and children
We gotta raise the quality of living
[Hook: Dax & (Triune)]
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
Another day (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
The only way (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)
[Verse 3: Ishues]
Music don’t make me, I make it then make it
Make sense, don’t it? And if it don’t, you should spend some more contemplation on it
Moments of time spent honing my rhymes
Sent from only the divine, my purpose is mine
And mine alone to define despite your prospective vision
Or skeptic criticism or messed-up definition
I’m a servant of God, don’t ever mistake it
And your fate for all that faking, you can never escape it
I’m faceless and raceless, my message is ageless
I’m within all faces the same like with hatred
The Matrix was fake but how they make it so tight? It’s a Mahalia Jackson, imitations of life
[Hook: Dax & (Triune)]
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
Another day (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)
It’s just another day for me (beats rhymes living a life)
The only way (in these times it’s gotta be life)
[?] freedom (yeah, living)

Camila Cabello – Never Be the Same Lyrics

when the lights are low
Off of one touch I could overdose
He said, “stop playing it safe
Girl, I wanna see you lose control”
[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need
Ooh, yeah, you’re all I need
[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
[Bridge]
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head
[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same [Verse 1]
Something must’ve gone wrong in my brain
Got your chemicals all in my veins
Feeling all the highs, feeling all the pain
Let go of the ways I used to fall in lane
Now I’m seeing red, not thinking straight
Blurring all the lines, you intoxicate me
[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need
Yeah, you’re all I need
[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

Suicide sparks rural community into action on men’s mental health

Map:
Mingenew 6522
“There was a few guys that came together and the idea was sparked that maybe we form the Mingenew Gringos,” he said.”We start growing moustaches and the moustache is the trigger for when you see another man. The suicide of a well-respected member of the farming community has sparked the small Wheatbelt community of Mingenew, in Western Australia’s Midwest into action.In a community of fewer than 500 people, 40 men raised a collective $80,000, putting them in the top three Movember fundraising teams nationally.It was at a memorial in late October that the small group of men came together and began talking about mental health issues. If you or anyone you know needs help:Lifeline on 13 11 14Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800MensLine Australia on 1300 789 978Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467Beyond Blue on 1300 22 46 36Headspace on 1800 650 890 Spokesperson Anthony Smyth said many had not been aware their friend had been struggling with depression.”It came as quite a shock,” he said.”That was really the inspiration and the catalyst to get us together to try and raise some more awareness in rural communities and try and start getting guys talking more about the mental health issues that they’re facing and struggling with on a daily basis.”Mates checking on matesIt was from this discussion that the Mingenew Gringos were formed to participate in Movember and raise funds and awareness of men’s health issues. That’s the trigger point to start talking about why they’re growing it and about men’s health and it has been working really well.”Mr Smyth said the discussions about mental health and in particular depression had been even more important than the fundraising.”A couple of guys who didn’t know that one was struggling with some mental health problems are now talking on a daily basis,” he said.”[We have been] sitting in the header cabs together sharing and getting that awareness out there and helping each other through, so that’s been really positive.”Fundraising exceeds expectations Mr Smyth said the money raised and the involvement of the community had surprised everyone.”It’s been amazing, the amount of generosity and the amount of support to the Gringos has been quite outstanding,” he said.The fundraising culminated in a cricket match and social event but the plan is to make it an ongoing community program. Planning is already underway for an event focussed on women and the supporting role they play in men’s health and relationships.

Abseiling botanists discover rare plants growing on cliff face

Saving Our Species project officer Justin Mallee said the effort was justified when nearly 1,000 rare green waxberry (Gaultheria viridicarpa) plants were discovered in the Limpinwood Nature Reserve. “These plants have existed for thousands and thousands of years and to be able to know a bit more about them … it gives us some hope that we’ll be able to manage their environment in such a way that they’ll persist for thousands of years into the future.” “Ninety-four lamington eyebright plants were counted [recently] … a huge boost to our knowledge of this population,” he said.”Some of these sites take a good six hours or so to walk into, so there’s not often people there looking for them.”They’re in some very hard to get to places.”The aim of the survey was to document the extent of the populations of the threatened plants, assess their habitat condition, and record potential threats.Mr Mallee said the biggest threat was climate change, due to the plants’ location in a fragile, high-altitude environment.

Mr Mallee said the species was last known as a small population of only five plants, recorded in 1982. “The mossy cliffs of Limpinwood Nature Reserve are the only place in the world where these plants are found.”So the discovery of a bigger population is fantastic news for this threatened species and really boosts this plant’s chance of long-term survival.”The survey also revealed a thriving colony of lamington eyebright (Euphrasia bella). “We knew a handful of these very rare plants existed along the top of the cliff line, but what we didn’t know was how many plants were growing on the cliff faces, or their condition,” Mr Mallee said.

The rare lamington eyebright plant was also counted during the survey. Botanists from the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service are going to great heights to identify and record some of the rarest plants in the country.Some of the species are only known to exist along one escarpment within the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area on the New South Wales–Queensland border.A special conservation permit was required to allow a botanist to abseil down a cliff face and conduct a threatened species assessment.
