Meat pies are so popular that there’s even been an Official Great Aussie Pie Competition since 1989. And every good barbie offers a sausage sanga — a sausage on bread with a squirt of tomato sauce.Of course you could upgrade and add onion, different sauces, crusty bread rolls or even break away from a traditional beef or pork snag and try a fancy gourmet sausage.

They’re a big part of the Anzac tradition and commemorations, but the sweet chewy (or crispy) biscuits we know and love weren’t actually eaten by troops at Gallipoli. LamingtonThe lamington is certainly one of Australia’s edible national symbols; there’s even a National Lamington Day on July 21. The much sweeter and softer Anzac biscuits we enjoy today came along later in the war and were sold at fetes and public events to raise money for the military effort.Recipes:Crispy and chewy Anzac biscuitsAnzac biscuits by Margaret FultonTraditional Anzac biscuits 7. 1. But according to the Australian War Memorial, the biscuit is often confused with a soldier’s ration staple called the hardtack biscuit, sometimes known as Anzac tiles or Anzac wafer biscuits.

The traditional hamburger may be an American thing, but the Aussies have made the “burger with the lot” their own by adding some true blue flavours.Layering sliced pineapple, beetroot, egg and bacon on top of a meat pattie, cheese and salad on a bun creates a true “works burger”.And the best ones leave burger juice running down your arms as you get your mouth around the enormous taste sensation.Recipe:Short Cuts to Glory: At Home BurgerHonourable mentionsThere are plenty of other truly Aussie foods that just missed out on a top 10 spot.

There’s nothing more Australian than getting together for a barbecue with family and friends. Chiko roll

At the peak of its popularity in the 1960s and 1970s, 40 million Chiko Rolls were sold in Australia each year. Sausage sizzles have become a staple of work functions, birthday parties and fundraisers — we just can’t walk past the appetising smell of a barbecuing snag. External Link:

Aussie kids are Weet-bix kids (1987)
Whether it’s with warm or cold milk, covered in honey or sugar, or even eaten dry with jam or Vegemite, there’s certainly plenty of ways to enjoy Weet-Bix.It was developed by Bennison Osborne for Grain Products in early 1920s as competition to the popular Granose, a wheat biscuit marketed by Sanitarium at the time. (ABC Radio Canberra: Gabrielle Rumble)
“Aussie kids are Weet-Bix kids.” Like the song suggests, many of us grew up eating this flaked cereal biscuit with milk for breakfast. Here’s some tips for cooking up a juicy BBQ.Recipes:Traditional pork sausageFennel sausageSkinless sausage9. Invented by Arnott’s Ian Norris and named by Ross Arnott after the horse that won the 1958 Kentucky Derby, Tim Tams first hit our shelves in 1964. Osborne added small amounts of sugar and malt to his cereal biscuits to make them more palatable and they soon became a best-selling breakfast cereal.Sanitarium acquired Grain Products, along with its Weet-Bix, in 1928 and started issuing collector cards in boxes in the 1940s.

Both Australia and New Zealand claim to have invented pavlova in honour of Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, who visited both countries in the 1920s.Either way, the meringue-based dessert is one of Australia’s premier sweet treats.

Simple yet delicious, it is hard to go past a hot BBQ sausage sandwich. Today meat pies are so popular that Australians eat an average of 12 a year — that’s 270 million pies (according to Food Standards Australia).And while there’s plenty of gourmet varieties now on the market, it is hard to go past the old-school flaky pastry containing diced or minced meat with gravy.Recipes: Best meat pie everAustralian meat pieClassic pie pastries 3. Weet-Bix

Weet-Bix can be found in most pantries across Australia and is one of the country’s top-selling breakfast cereals. Is it Wagga Wagga, Bathurst or Bendigo?The savoury snack was developed by Bendigo boilermaker Frank McEncroe in competition to the Chinese spring roll that was being sold at football matches.It made its first appearance at the Wagga Wagga Agriculture Show in 1951 as the Chicken Roll, despite not actually containing chicken.Food company Simplot now manufactures Chiko rolls in Bathurst, and the deep-fried snack remains commonplace on menus in fish-and-chip and takeaway shops across Australia.8.

Love it or hate it, after 90 years Vegemite is still an Australian breakfast staple.Spread on toast, bread or crackers, or even added to casseroles or layered in cheesy scrolls, the black, salty paste sure is versatile. The meat pie hit our shores at the same time as the First Fleet, and by 1891 George Sargent was commercially producing them in Sydney. The Happy Little Vegemites jingle hit radio airwaves in 1954 and resonates with many Australians to this day, so much so we buy more than 22 million jars of the spread every year.Recipes:Vegemite and cheese breadVegemite chickenVegemite icy poles4. Since then there have been many varieties of Tim Tams and our love of this choc bikkie has only grown, with more than 45 million packets sold in Australia each year.Next time you sit down to enjoy a Tim Tam, why not try a Tim Tam slam?Bite off the opposite corners of the biscuit, submerge one end in your cup of tea, coffee or milk and then suck the liquid through like a straw. The land Down Under is home to plenty of delicious sweet and savoury fare, but here are 10 iconic foods we can truly celebrate this Australia Day. Burger with the lot

It is hard to go past the great Aussie meal that is a burger with the lot. When you bite into the square-shaped sponge cake coated in chocolate icing and desiccated coconut, it is easy to see why it is so popular.Sometimes it even comes in two halves with a layer of jam and cream in the middle, making it the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon tea or coffee.The lamington was invented more than a century ago and named after Queensland’s governor at the time, Lord Lamington.Exactly who whipped together the first recipe is still up for debate, with both Toowoomba and Ipswich claiming to be the lamington’s birthplace.Recipes:Homemade lamingtonsAustralia Day lamingtonsLamingtons CWA2. Recipes:Summer berry pavlovaAll-in-one pavlova Lemon-filled pavlova5. External Link:

Happy Little Vegemites
A national competition saw it labelled Vegemite and it hit the shelves in October 1923.But Marmite still dominated the market and poor sales saw Vegemite’s name changed to Parwill in 1928.The change was a flop and a switch back to Vegemite saw the spread finally take off 14 years later.In 1939 the British Medical Association endorsed Vegemite for its health properties, and during World War II Australia’s armed forces ordered so much Vegemite that rationing was imposed at home to meet demand for the troops. Pavlova

They’re a staple at sporting events and parties and the cause of many a burnt tongue — the humble meat pie is the epitome of Australian food. With its crisp crust and soft, light centre, decorated with whipped cream and fresh fruit, it is hard to go past fresh pavlova at any gathering. Legend goes that they were sent to troops on the Western Front because they had a long shelf life. Recipes:Muesli sliceApple and rhubarb crumble Marshmallow slice10.

During the interview with Vulture, Erykah Badu addresses some recent criticism she received on social media when some folks called her anti-Semitic. I see good in everybody. She really opened up during the interview, but one excerpt from the talk made headlines and is causing her to get some harassment on social media. I saw something good in Hitler.”

Lady Gaga – Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?) [Piano Version] Lyrics

[Verse 2]
If you could, I know that you’d stay
We both know things don’t work that way
I promised I wouldn’t say goodbye
So I grin and my voice gets thin
[Chorus]
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl? [Verse 1]
Take my hand, stay Joanne
Heaven’s not ready for you
Every part of my aching heart
Needs you more than the angels do
[Chorus]
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl? Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl? Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? [Bridge]

And baby, you’re just movin’ on
And I’ll still love you even if I can’t see you anymore
Can’t wait to see you soar
[Chorus]
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’? [Outro]
Call me Joanne
XO, Joanne
XOXO, Joanne Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl? Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl? Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?

Lil Wayne – Bloody Mary Lyrics

[Intro]
I’mma be alright because Dizzy alright
[Verse 1: Juelz Santana]
Uh, ok, time to make my mark
I gave ’em a head start
Now I’m on my Nicki shit, I don’t want no fraud
Tryna’ raise the bar, grabbin’ like I passed the bar
You would think I’m ridin’ bikes by the way I handle bars
New nigga in charge, it’s a new nigga in charge
Poppin’ all these blue I might turn into an avatar
They ain’t wanna see me back, he’s back
Human cracking the flesh, sorry I had to relapse
These niggas weak wack, I twist ’em like weed raps
Still on my Nino Brown
Still getting G-money on G packs
No stunna man bussin like Dunna Man it’s evident
These hoes love me, they say my dick is they medicine
Cosby spikin’ gelatin, still pushin’ and pedaling
Settling never, I’m like DiCaprio in The Revenant
Still whippin’ and stretchin’ it
2 pots, ambidextrous
I’m a beast, a dog, I see that money I’m catching it
Ya hoe throwing it at me, I’m catching it
Don’t check me, go check ya bitch
You don’t want to get me out of my element
From a tenant in a tenements to owning my residence
Phone still clicking I feel like a receptionist
I’m extraterrestrian
My life’s a fucking movie, boy don’t get yourself edited
I’m like Steph at the free-throw that piece blow, I never miss
Told you girl how to a whip the girl now she lesbian
You can level up, still won’t be on my level then
It’s level 10, these niggas hot, I must be kettling
They don’t want the steam but I know you want the tea
That’s yo bitch, why she only fuck with me? I’m who and why, I’m rude and kind
My cars are computerized, I’m cruisin’ by
Smokin’ blunts Ruben size
You fools can try, these tools getting utilized, you euthanized
Blattt, skrrt, shoot then drive, now who survived? Cause I’m balling MSG
Roof missing on this whip, and I need two kitchens
Fuck the DA I ain’t never been no stool pigeon
Won’t catch me in no club unless my tool get in
Be smart cause Bouncy a fool with it
Son say it’s on
7-11 with it
That’s 24-7 with it
Wherever, whatever with it, yeah
Your Momma gonna need a church with a reverend in it
Just pray its a heaven in it
And hope that they let you in it, yeah
Boy I expose the truth in guys
Cross me and get crucified
Wars on the bazooka rise
Niggas get neutralized
[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
Suicide, this is suicide
Tell ’em seek and you will find ’cause Imma lose my mind
Kick a nigga ass then give em my shoes to shine
It’s do or die, I come from where we used to crime
The Uzi-9 more important than school supplies
The pools is dry, my niggas and the food is fried
The news is lies
The pigeons is too spooked to fly
The rules denied
All the toughest goons is mine
That’s Tunechi’s slimes
They kill you and go do the time
We unified
Young Money revolutionized the new design
We had to leave the flukes behind and super size
The numbers through the roof and sky
Don’t look too surprised look through the lines
We makin’ moves and strides, groves and vibes I’m too alive
These hoes need to be supervised
They put on a cute disguise, you grooms is blind
She get dick in the Uber ride, Number 2 with fries, I’m pimpin’
Now who am I? We comin’ back to rewind
I’m usually high, sippin’ on the Houston wine
Feel humanized, I want my throne to recline
Jackie red, Julie blind, they cuban fine, I bruise they spine
I leave and they snooze till 9
Superglued to the grind, my crew my tribe
These bitches try to divide, we too divine
Got the drugs to provide, the coolest highs
The green is green and the white with the bluest eyes
The syrup and the juice collide
The two combine like suits and ties
Magic, poof
Goodbye

Pouya – Handshakes Lyrics

Right
I pave my own lanes
I surf my own waves
I did it my own way
For that peso
I stack my queso
From the getgo
I was glowing
And flowin’ sicker
Then most of these rappers
Now they linger
Around my finger watch out for my trigger
I can’t rock with you bitch
You wanna be famous
Poppin pussy for me lookin’ oh so shameless see me on the TV yellin’ out explicit language
Fuck the population this degenerate generation
[Hook]
Don’t you turn back to me I made the lane you walk today
I just want your loyalty
Don’t let this be one more mistake
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Don’t you turn back to me I made the lane you walk today
I just want your loyalty
Don’t let this be one more mistake
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes [Hook]
Don’t you turn back to me I made the lane you walk today
I just want your loyalty
Don’t let this be one more mistake
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Don’t you turn back to me I made the lane you walk today
I just want your loyalty
Don’t let this be one more mistake
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
Inside plotting on me
Outside handshakes
[Verse 1]
I pour water on the roots of every rapper that I touch
Pay yo homage when you see me sacrifice yo womans guts
As a retainer to yo life
Baby don’t wanna get involved with a man like me
I got some issues I can’t be yo Mr.

Nicki Minaj Decline Safaree Samuels Reunion Calls Him Ungrateful [Exclusive]

“The lawsuit was the ultimate betrayal in her eyes because he wasn’t just a lawsuit to her, it was also like a shakedown and then on top of that he tried to cast a cloud over her career about writing her lyrics,” sources said. Sources close to the Trinidadian rapper told DancehallHipHop that there is a lot of bitterness between the two, particularly on Nicki Minaj part. It’s like now he missing that old lifestyle of the private jets, jewelry, and fast cars.”

Although Nicki felt like Safaree betrayed her post their breakup, she isn’t at all innocent in that department because who can forget all those times she and Meek Mill taunt Safaree on Twitter. “No they aren’t together and was never really seriously together, to begin with, the media just overblown things as usual,” sources said. We’re told Nicki sees him as an ungrateful human being whom she wants to stay as far away from as possible. While he didn’t explicitly expresses his wish to rekindle their relationship, his gesture made it pretty clear he was on a mission. She even did a full album about their breakup. You can already picture the headlines, “Nicki Minaj dating a reality TV star.” The only difference it would make in this case is that they have 12 years of history together. “Living on different coasts hundreds of miles apart made it impossible to sustain a relationship and they are both very busy individuals.”
There are some other stuffs that may complicate things for him. How would that play out with Nicki Minaj status as the biggest female rapper on the planet? Last week he publicly told his fans during a performance that he misses her. The Love and Hip Hop star has been shooting his shots lately in an attempt to get her back or perhaps he just wants to get her attention. She felt like he never gave her a chance to make things right when he abruptly got up and walk out leave her. “It’s not even about how many women he dated since then, they weren’t together so she doesn’t care about that, it’s much more about how messy he was with all the interviews and lawsuit crap,” our source revealed. Nicki Minaj maybe single again but that doesn’t mean she is ready to hook up back with her ex Safaree Samuels. Samuels maybe right, they are both been unlucky in love. Given their twelve years of history, you would think that it would be much easier for them to rekindle their old flame, but it’s quite the opposite. Of all the things happening behind the scenes between Nicki Minaj and Safaree, one thing for sure did take place, he did reaches out to her recently and got rejected. “All those interviews he did talking bad about her and now he expects her to just forget about them and welcome him back. She also felt like his actions since their breakup such as his lawsuit against her and working with her enemies pretty much killed all hopes of any reunion. “Yes he did reach out and I don’t think he will stop because he told their mutual friends that he wants her back. “Well he knows her better than most people, she is a firecracker so he can’t be all that surprised if she rejected him in a very cringe-worthy way, I still laugh about it,” our insider said. Even Maury Povich thinks that they should get back together or at least give it another shot. Safaree is still cast on Love and Hip Hop and a few other reality TV shows. Whether or not she will take him back, I doubt it, but you just never know.”

Earlier this month, we reported that Nicki Minaj and Nas mutually ended their relationship and Safaree was right there reminding her that they have both been unlucky with love since their split. They both went on and dated other people, although SB dated a bunch of women since then. For her part, Nicki hooked up with Meek Mill right after her relationship with Samuels ended, in fact, SB publicly says Meek was the main reason their relationship ended because he rated him out about cheating on her.

Nah no time fi slow down
And I won’t let you do this on your own
So put your weight ‘pon me
Cause I can tell that you’re too weak
Still dem don’t see it yet
Dem caah come your way, I mean it
Put you ‘pon lock and dash ‘way the key
And have dem a pree weh the f*ck you been
(Chorus)
Beats you up, love beats you up
Heart broken and you feeling stuck
Beats you up, love beats you up
Build your walls so high, nobody can jump it
Beats you up, love beats you up
And I’m so grateful for your trust
Beats you up, beats you up
I won’t let dem hurt you anymore, my love
Unwanted, dem do it all fi mash you up
But still I gave you all of me
The moment when you happy
Everybody waan run in
Sacrifice your love and dem abuse it inna peace

Heart broken and you feeling stuck
Beats you up, love beats you up
Build your walls so high, nobody can jump it
Beats you up, love beats you up…

Vybz Kartel – Make Up Sex Lyrics

Wrote My Way Out Nas, Dave East, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Aloe Blacc – Wrote My Way Out Lyrics

(Chorus)
I wrote my way out
When the world turned its back on me
I was up against the wall
I had no foundation
No friends and no family to catch my fall
Running on empty, with nothing left in me but doubt
I picked up a pen
And wrote my way out (I wrote my way out)
(Verse 1)
I picked up the pen like Hamilton
Street analyst, now I write words that try to channel ’em
No political power, just lyrical power
Sittin’ on a crate on a corner, sippin’ for hours
Schemin’ on a come up, from evening’to sun up
My man awaitin’ trial, misdemeanors we younger
Courtroom prejudice, insufficient evidence
Jailhouse lawyers, these images still relevant
Flickerin’ lights inside my project hall
Sickenin’, the mice crawl all night long
And ’87 Reaganism, many pages I’ve written on
Writin’ songs about rights and wrongs and bails bonds
Master bedroom, bigger than the crib that I was raised at
I’m the architect like I wrote the code to Waze app
I’m driven, black Elohim from the streets of Queens
The definition of what It Was Written means
Know what I mean? Blah! Start bleedin’”
My pops tried in vain to get me to fight back
Sister tapped my brains, said, pssh, you’ll get ’em right back
Oversensitive, defenseless, I made sense of it, I pencil in
The lengths to which I’d go to learn my strengths and knock ’em senseless
These sentences are endless, so what if they leave me friendless? Damn, you got no chill, f*ckin’ right I’m relentless
I know Abuela’s never really gonna win the lottery
So it’s up to me to draw blood with this pen, hit an artery
This Puerto Rican’s brains are leakin’ through the speakers
And if he can be the shinin’ beacon this side of the G.W.B and
Shine a light when it’s gray out
(Bridge)
I wrote my way out
Oh, I was born in the eye of a storm
No lovin’ arms to keep me warm
This hurricane in my brain is the burden I bear
I can do without, I’m here (I’m here)
Cause I wrote my way out
(Coda)
I picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the projects
Wrote-wrote my way out of the projects
Picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the
Wrote-wrote my way out of the projects
I wrote my way out
Picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the
(I wrote my way out)
Really, I saw like a hole in the rap game, so if I wanted to put my little two cents in the game, then it would be from a different perspective
(I wrote my way out)
I thought that I would represent for my neighborhood and tell their story, be their voice, in a way that nobody has done it
Tell the real story

Nas, Dave East, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Aloe Blacc – Wrote My Way Out Lyris (Repeat Chorus)
(Verse 2)
I really wrote my way up out of 6E
Develop relationships with fiends, I know they miss me
Before the metrocards, it was tokens, I did the ten speed
Never had wrote a rhyme in my life, what was a sixteen? At sixteen, arrested in housin’, trips to the mountains
Came right back, trappin’ off couches, watchin’ for mouses
Only tools we was posed with, had a spot, smoke lit
The hate is just confusion, pay attention how them jokes switch
Diadora was my favorite, the Mark Buchanans
Mama couldn’t afford them, I learned everythin’ on the border
That’s a big 8, Clicquot parties with private dancers with no mixtape
Bumble Bee Tuna, now we could get steak
I persevered, composition, I kept it close
Competition near, I’m a Spartan without the spear
Three hundred rhymes, it was written before I wrote it
Opportunity knockin’, might miss it, that window closin’
This poetry in motion, I’m a poet
(Repeat Chorus)
(Verse 3)
High speed, dubbin’ these rhymes in my dual cassette deck
Runnin’ out of time like I’m Jonathan Larson’s rent check
My mind is where the wild things are, Maurice Sendak
In withdrawal, I want it all, please give me that pen back
Y’all, I caught my first beatin’ from the other kids when I was caught readin’
“Oh, you think you smart?

Vybz Kartel Right Hand Sikka Rymes Disses Popcaan “No Gaza/Unruly Peace”

Since then there have been chatters that Popcaan could be the next person out of the Gaza camp to make peace with his former mentor. Seems there will be no peace between Popcaan and Vybz Kartel anytime soon. Since Tommy Lee’s visit, some fans have been urging Popcaan to make peace with Kartel, but so far he has not responded to those requests. “Yo sing the most badman song and shaky, them boy deh badness naan step up lately, Get a one shoes a talk how them killy crazy, and them naan make no step than mean them killy lazy,” Sikka Rymes spites while adding in another line, “Alright then teach Sivva, Sikka from Rema no bwoy can’t buy me Benz not even Bimmer.”

Vybz Kartel tasked Sikka Rymes as the man who organized his prison visits and our sources inside the Gaza told us that their is a staunch hatred for Popcaan among members of Kartel’s inner circle. Sparta with Kartel’s right hand man Sikka Rymes going inside GP where they spent a few hours with the Gazanation boss. Earlier this week, Tommy Lee Sparta visited Kartel in prison signaling that the two have officially made peace. A peace deal is still a long shot even if someone like Sean Kingston try to be the middleman. Related Posts
