APY Lands artists use ancient techniques to create new rock art
A cross-cultural experienceOver six weeks, Mr Catalán de Ocón became embedded in the remote community, consulting and collaborating through long working days with the Bula’bula artists.He likened the experience of living in the remote community (about three days’ drive from Darwin) to travelling back in time.

The East Arnhem community of Ramingining is about 580km east of Darwin. “At a certain point, each weaver did an individual piece and we started joining them together according to family links and family bonds with the weavers which were doing the lamps.”One of the pieces is now on display at the NGV Triennial.The other hangs in the studio in Barcelona where Mr Catalán de Ocón fields calls from weaver Lynette Birriran every couple of days — an ongoing touchstone between their two very different worlds.

“She tells us what is happening in Ramingining, what the weather is like, how are things going on,” the designer said.”We tell them how is the lamp, if it’s showing here or there.”She enjoys it a lot — we send pictures and it’s quite an experience.” (Supplied: Alvaro Catalán de Ocón)
Taking this logic a step further, the product designer realised the issue of mounting plastic waste and the art of weaving were both somewhat universal.There are few crafts, he said, as ancient or widely practiced as textile weaving.”So we turned it from a container into a lamp through the use of local craft, which was very strong in Colombia,” he said.”It’s two realities which can mix together.”He travelled from Colombia to Chile, Ethiopia and Japan, weaving lamp shades with disfigured plastic bottles and local designs.In 2016, after being commissioned by the NGV to bring the project to Australia, he decided the project’s next location would be Ramingining. A Spanish designer’s collaboration with Indigenous artists in a remote Top End community has produced an unlikely and beautiful cross-cultural artwork on display at the NGV Triennial.The piece, which combines ancient Indigenous weaving techniques with recycled materials of the modern world, is the work of Alvaro Catalán de Ocón and Yolngu weavers from Bula’bula Arts in Ramingining.”I basically do product design, but quite recently I have been combining this way of doing it with craft, and mainly weaving,” Mr Catalán de Ocón told ABC Radio Darwin’s Liz Trevaskis from his studio in Barcelona. (Supplied: Alvaro Catalán de Ocón)
The object in question was a PET bottle, which Mr Catalán de Ocón noted had a short shelf life compared to the time it took to decompose.While he could not single-handedly fix the problem of plastic waste, he thought he could use intelligent product design to make a statement about it.Drawing inspiration from the shape of a Japanese tea whisk, Mr Catalán de Ocón recognised a similarity between certain looms and the shape of a plastic bottle that had been cut to pieces.”You have a knot, which is the screw top, and then you have the body of the bottle, which you can cut in strips, and that becomes like a loom you can weave onto,” he said.

Individual weavings were woven together based on the artists’ knowledge of local kinship systems. Photo:
Pandanus leaves are dyed using pigments from native roots and leaves. “Little by little, we managed to get into that world.”We know we only really arrived in the very surface of it, but you realise how deep it is and how different it is — the way of understanding the land, the way of understanding life and time.”While the designer had produced about 15,000 lamps in previous workshops, Mr Catalán de Ocón decided this time they would work towards just two.

“They were telling us their stories, we were going out to the bush to pick up the materials, doing the whole process so we could spend a lot of time together,” he said. (Supplied: Studio Alvaro Catalán de Ocón)
With his PET Lamp project, Mr Catalán de Ocón travelled to five art centres in as many continents, using recycled bottles and local weaving techniques to create brightly coloured lamp shades.But learning about the kinship systems in the East Arnhem Land community prompted him to break with tradition.Where previous collaborations had produced thousands of lamp shades, this one produced just two woven together by eight local women using native plant materials and ancient techniques.The resulting works are large, irregularly shaped weavings in luminous, earthen tones, woven together according to the women’s relationships to one another.Project born from mission to creatively recycleIn 2011, Mr Catalán de Ocón was travelling through Colombia and became involved in an art project about rising levels of plastic waste in the Amazon River.”They were interested in having my perspective as a product designer, and I thought about instead of recycling, reusing, because there was no infrastructure in those areas for recycling, it was about turning the object into something else,” he said.

George Corones has always enjoyed swimming. The lions were emaciated and dehydrated when they were rescued by Four Paws. Both lions have received medical care, including vasectomies and dental work, and have gained weight on a steady diet. World’s first plastic-free shopping aisle opensA supermarket in Amsterdam has opened a plastic-free aisle as part of a war on waste.CNN reports the Ekoplaza branch has 700 products with plastic-free packaging and the idea will roll out to all of its 74 branches by the end of this year.

While we’re on the subject of animals, let’s talk turtles.A new plan is proving to protect these little eastern long-necked turtles from foxes that have been digging up nearly all the turtle nests in Canberra for years.Last spring, rangers and volunteers spent 15 nights following female turtles around, waiting for them to lay eggs.They then secured their nests with a metal grid.This week, 18 hatchlings emerged from their protected nests and were released into the water at Jerrabomberra Wetlands.Now these baby turtles could live for 60 years. This week a freak storm dubbed the “Beast from the East” lashed Europe, and millions of Aussies have been ordered to have potentially deadly airbags removed from cars.But there has been some good news to make you smile going into the weekend and we’re here to remind you of it in case you missed it.This week a doctor who suffered a severe spinal injury revealed how he became Queensland’s first quadriplegic doctor, and for those animal lovers, a plan to protect baby eastern long-necked turtle eggs from foxes is paying off. Sian Sutherland, co-founder of environmental campaign group A Plastic Planet, told CNN it was the future of food retailing. (Facebook: Australian Dolphins Swim Team)
George Corones should surely be in the running for the next Australian of the Year. AP reports Simba and Saeed were saved by an animal welfare group and taken to live at a sanctuary with other animals that survived harsh conditions in captivity elsewhere in the world.

Dinesh Palipana told the ABC how he became Queensland’s first quadriplegic doctor, working at one of the state’s busiest hospitals. Dr Palipana was halfway through medical school when he crashed his car on Brisbane’s Gateway Motorway in 2010.He went to Sri Lanka so his mum could look after him but he soon realised he wanted to get back into medicine and came back to Australia to continue his degree.Despite finding it hard to get a job at first, he has been working as a doctor for more than a year and he says he loves his job so much it doesn’t even feel like work.He was even nominated for intern of the year at his hospital in 2017.

During the Commonwealth Games trials on the Gold Coast, the swimmer, who will turn 100 in April, broke a world record when he completed the 50-metre freestyle swim in 56.12 seconds.Mr Corones only started swimming seriously when he turned 80 and was the only swimmer in his 100-104 age group.He also smashed two world records in 2013, at the Masters Swimming Queensland meet on the Gold Coast.Turtle egg protection plan paying off

One man’s mission to shine a light on ordinary Papua New Guineans

Map:
Papua New Guinea

Captain David Inau was one of 11 army pilots who were trained in Australia as PNG transitioned to independence. People were really hungry for it,” Scott said.”They wanted to read and on the blog stats I was getting an average of 20,000 to 50,000 hits a day, so it’s quite a surprising response I got on the blog itself.”He had provided something Papua New Guineans were desperately seeking — proof that their struggles mattered. For this week, I’m going to do very positive things.”So Scott started a blog about Papua New Guineans who had overcome challenges or whose positive attitude stood out.Not the powerful people who dominate PNG’s often sycophantic domestic news coverage, but the men and women of PNG’s villages, settlements and suburbs.Local heroes, basically. Not the politicians, not the bureaucrats, not the businessmen — just the ordinary, everyday heroes. Photo:

“If you put out the positive and you put that out in public, people will connect the dots and then start demanding better services, start demanding those in power are held accountable for their actions,” he said.Some of the blog’s most avid readers are teachers in the rural parts of Papua New Guinea.They download the posts when they come back to towns with mobile coverage and take them back for their students.Scott would like his material to be given to schools to show their students that there is dignity and potential in their lives.He’s also looking to turn the blog into a book and says he’s been inundated with suggestions of new people to profile.Scott’s desire to do something positive has now inspired countless others to do the same.Someone should write a blog post about him. A journalist in Papua New Guinea has found there’s a hunger for stories about locals who have overcome the difficulties of life in their developing country.Papua New Guineans are used to negative news headlines about their country and hearing that living standards and services are getting worse.But Scott Waide has made it his mission to highlight how hard work and a positive attitude can transform ordinary Papua New Guineans into leaders, and setbacks into successes. (Facebook: Inspirational Papua New Guineans)
In a country with enormous challenges of poverty, corruption and violence, the act of honouring people who succeeded despite their circumstances has started to encourage others to stay positive and work towards a better life.”The feedback that I’m getting is ‘these are the kinds of stories that should be in the schools and it should be broadcast on mainstream media’, but sometimes it’s difficult to do that,” Scott said.”They are identifying with the characters, they feel the pain that this person is going through.”Or they’re so happy with the success that this other person has gone through and they look at where he came from, where he is now, or where she came from.”It’s created that demand for more of such stories.”Using words to bring changeScott has also noticed that pride can be powerful.He says his blog has made people ask why they’re suffering and demand answers from the people in charge.

“Sometimes I go home feeling very depressed about all the negativity,” he said.”One morning I woke up and said I’m going to do something very positive. (Facebook: Inspirational Papua New Guineans)
Profiling the positiveScott knows about making something from nothing.He taught himself to make pizza in a cheap drum oven and sold it on the street, so he could support his family while his wife studied.Then he built a career as one of PNG’s most experienced and respected journalists, and is now the bureau chief for EMTV in Lae.But the relentless negativity of reporting on PNG’s violence, crumbling infrastructure and poor governance wore him down.So Scott decided to do something positive instead.

Those who go about doing their work without complaining about issues that affect them, those who accept the way of life and battle on.Scott’s blog is simply called “Inspirational Papua New Guineans”.It profiles teachers, doctors, community leaders, a designer who turned PNG’s ubiquitous woven carry bags — known as bilums — into dresses, a high school student who sold soft drinks to buy a calculator and a man who left a raskol crime gang to become a founding father of basketball in PNG.’People were hungry for it’The themes are consistent — perseverance and overcoming obstacles, things every Papua New Guinean can relate to.Even with PNG’s limited internet connectivity, the blog has reached tens of thousands of people.”After several posts I realised there was a thirst for this kind of material.

Tory Lanez – Memories Don’t Die (Freestyle)

[Intro]
Turn it up a little bit
Yeah, uh
[Verse 1]
Tory Lanez got the block on whiplash
The cops on draw quick fast so my shit stashed
I keep a big fifth stashed in the whip dash
Trip, catch six in a second like quick flash
Bitch pass if you ain’t lettin’ the clique smash
I switch tags just so I could let my chicks brag
Niggas whole swag ain’t half my chicks bag
No jokes, those’ll get you smoked like quick drag
I click fast and blang your bitch ass
Brain from your chick in the whip that I just crashed
Sound wow like Tory puttin’ a thou down
Tryna make a bitch bow down in the chow chows
Don’t you know I sing songs with a mink on
And have chicks dripping like the sink in their string thong? Give you dog shots like I’m checking in a sick pet
Got street ties with the street guys
Even if they fly on G5s, they’ll kill you for a G5
Fifteen hunnid, my FN gunning
My dawg copped twenty birds, and they just keep coming
He sold four and plus he let a sick team run ’em
We ain’t talking ’bout a verse when it’s a sixteen coming (check)
I’m a real nigga
I keep a Tommy on my body but when you see me, I ain’t wearin’ Hilfigher
Just a ladder and a roofer that’ll drill niggas
And down to take his charge when he kill niggas
Look, I’m the hot kid in the school
I pull up to the party and I pop chicks in the pool
Hot chicks say I’m hot and my dick is a jewel
Just let me box with that twat, I’ll stick it and move
Yo, she like the way my wrist dance
She like the way the wrists on my fist dance
Every time a nigga switch hands
And my guns and shooters on quickstands
You would thinks the guns designer, they way they come in rip pants
Wrist cuts, my wrist slants and I’m in the truck getting jiggy, tryna get up in your chick pants
Bitch dance
It’s four hoes with me, if them four hoes did me, shawty, it won’t be a fifth chance
My whole stretch from south France to Brisbane
And they attached to the arms like wrist bands
Look, I send ’em up and I’ma send a [?] back if they sent ’em up
My dawg got a twenty on him and a semi tucked
But, I’ve been in so many life or death situations, I just wanna live it up
I dropped it off and I picked it up
And my Joels all Embiided and I’m feeling all sixered up
I’m in the club tryna find a thick chick to fuck
Man, after all my neck and wrist is all glittered up
Bitches wanna fuck it up, now they want to lick it up
They man hear about it next day and wan’ get me touched
In a Bentley, tints tucked, Cuban linked up
Big chain on me in case I gotta get you inked up
Wrink up, see the wrist roller wrinked up
Whole squad looking like we robbed us a Brink’s truck
Any cat that know Lanez know I’m worldwide
I leave you on your sweatshirt like Earl died
I’m more wavy than a surfer on a curl tide
And you a bitch, even lookin’ from your girl’s eyes
I’m a stunna, my wrist done up, my girls got the scar tissue on her tits done up
Fucking with her, I’ma have to lift gun up and bang bang ’til the tissue on your hip come up
I’m a all around star player
I’m a lot of y’all father like Darth Vader
Fuck niggas know I charge for my hard labour
I spent nights in that cold for that hard paper
Listen, that’s why I feel I’m the most hot in the place
A lot of niggas saying they hot but they not in the place
And your block? It ain’t hot, man it’s safe
Next nigga diss Tory Lanez ’bout to get shot in his face, nigga
I hate niggas that lie and move funny
That why keep fly and chill on the cruise money
Y’all niggas lose money, y’all niggas just snooze money
Just look at my blood, my shit is just ooze money
Look, I do this for that youngin’ on the corner
That hustle all day though he never had a daughter
He never had a father, he hustle in the corner
I’m telling that he wilding tryna truck the shit to Florida
But niggas love to hustle, it’s aura
When you come up from the poor, you struggle and you short
You gon’ do it for mother, lost your brother to the force
So you in the only son to keep the loving in the core
Every day you ducking strays tryna run in to the store
And you can’t afford a bed, layin’ covers on the floor
And you momma’s stressing and her blood pressure getting lower
And your daughter want that brand new toy
But it’s hard to show her that you broke and can’t afford it
So you on the corner, niggas talking shit and the plug, he keep avoidin’ ya
So you wanna hustle and you tryna get your coin up
Out there on your own, but shit, Satan will corner ya
So you wanna own, tryna get your own up
Now I’m on my own, I’m just tryna get my own up
Had to come through, 54, bought the chrome up
Niggas tried to hate, had to bring back the chrome up
I’m on Funk Flex, ay yo fuck everybody that said, "fuck Flex"
I don’t care what niggas talk and how they wan’ talk
I’m on my thing and my niggas let them things bark
Listen, look, I been this way, I don’t care how the fuck I’m coming in this way
I’m with my nigga Ray, my nigga Uno and my nigga GP
Niggas come through, I got them bitches on the CD
They gon’ watch me like we on the DVD
I don’t give a fuck man, you see me on the TV
And I’m all up in the Champs, and I’m all up in Adidas
I got all the bad bitches, more stripes than a zebra
Niggas hatin’ on me, ’cause they see me and I’m gettin’-
Fuck around, see me magazine, up all up in the features
XXL ain’t want me on the cover, next year they came around
I fucked around and dubbed ’em
I don’t give a fuck, y’all nigga know how I be rocking
Forty fifth on the block, niggas milly rocking
Ciroc poppin’, shout out my nigga French
That French Vanilla is lit and the shit is intense
I had a bad bitches threesomes last night
It was mad riches, all my niggas savages
I come to the block, above the averages
I don’t give a fuck, my niggas I ding dong ditch bitches when the fling gone
With a mink on and four fingers that my rings on
Quick drawin’ like you don’t know where my dick going
Like I ain’t been up in your chick dorm since the flip phones
My ice rocky, nice jocky
So much maple leaf money, niggas think I’m playing ice hockey
I’m that fly type, move through the night cocky
Bitch, I look so good, even the dykes watch me
I’m on indictment with a bad lightskin
Chain rain so much water they think we ’bout to have lightning
When I spit, niggas think I’m in that lab fightin’
Niggas think that I’m left hooking and I’m jab writin’
One thing is, I ain’t in that lab writin’, nigga everything is off top
Word to my bald spot
I used to have to stash work in my broad spot
Cops came, had to stash work in the bra strap
Phone calls and my connect is just a call drop
We don’t count down on those, that’s a ball drop
Come on akh, pretendin’ y’all niggas on block
Twin fives put like ten of y’all niggas on shots
We could do it however y’all niggas wan’ rock
Make this shit pop like oil in a chrome pot
And it don’t stop
I’m not a picture painter but I will put a nigga in his own chalk
I let the .9 spill
I got a ill lil’ shooter out in Brownsville down for the wild deal
I’ll feel blessed if nigga test and my shooter leave him streched ’til the bones in his spine chill
I’m ill nigga, this is not a time drill
I used to serve on the strip and watch Seinfield
Man, I remember serving on the strip
Watching out for cops hoping out suburbans on the strip
Working on the strip, chilling with a .30 on my hip
Whole team of shooters, bunch of Steph Curries in my clique
Boy, I’m a wild boy, check the style, boy
I’m a real baller, you a towel boy
I’ll put ’em in the future, no Elroy
‘Cause I pop tops like I’m opening some Altoids
Breath minty and fresh Fendi
Got a hustler chick down to smuggle bricks through the West Indies
I’ll hustle ’til it’s nothing left in me, and the plug hear ’bout me and gotta invest in me
I send semi’s at any nigga that’s testin’ me
I’m prayin’ to the lord, he’s the one that been blessing me
But yo, I got a sick set
And my jewels like dipset
And we on cam like dipset
These fuck niggas say they coming for the kid neck?

Kelly Clarkson – I Don’t Think About You (On The Late Night With Seth Meyers) (Live)

[Verse 1]
When you’re lost in the moment
You can’t see where you’re goin’
I didn’t know who I could trust
So I put all my faith in us
Oh, you tore me to pieces
Turned my strength into weakness
I didn’t want it all to fall apart
So I decided just to play the part
[Pre-Chorus]
But honestly, I’d do it all again
Puttin’ up with all the bullshit
It made me strong enough to do this
[Chorus]
It used to bother me, thought I could never leave
After all that I’ve been through, nothin’ left to prove
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
Weighing down on me
I lost my sanity
And now that we are through, nothin’ left to lose
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
[Verse 2]
I feel freedom where I stand now
And I feel proud of who I am now
Yeah, I learned a lot along the way
I love the woman that I became
[Pre-Chorus]
I was patient, but not anymore
It’s back in my hands
And you swore I’d never do it
But it’s your time to face the music
[Chorus]
It used to bother me, thought I could never leave
After all that I’ve been through, nothin’ left to prove
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
Weighing down on me
I lost my sanity
And now that we are through, nothin’ left to lose
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
[Bridge]
It was hard to hold on
Days and nights I thought I’d never make it at all
Couldn’t make it at all
Now I stand tall
Feeling like myself again, no worries at all
Breathe
No one can stop me from livin’ this moment for me
I found my heartbeat
After all that I’ve been through
No, I don’t think about you
[Chorus]
It used to bother me, thought I could never leave
After all that I’ve been through, nothin’ left to prove
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
Weighing down on me
I found my sanity
And now that we are through, nothin’ left to lose
No, no, no, I don’t think about you
[Outro]
I don’t think about you (no)
(No, no, no) No, no, no
(Not anymore) Not anymore
No, no, no, I don’t think about you

Kelly Clarkson – Didn’t I (On The Late Night With Seth Meyers) (Live)

When you’re lonely, just remember
I gave you everything
D-d-didn’t I? I gave you everything, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I? Beggin’ hold me ’til it’s over? [Verse 1]
Remember, not long ago
You called me hysterical
I finally figured us out
My fire was hot enough
To burn on for the both of us
And your water keeps puttin’ us out
[Pre-Chorus]
And I should be steam
The way you love to rain over me
Then turn around and call me your queen
Too blind to see, the way it stings, the pain it brings
[Chorus]
Didn’t I give you everything? I gave you everything, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I? [Outro]
Ooh
Didn’t I, didn’t I? Didn’t I, didn’t I
Didn’t I give you everything, baby? Didn’t I give you everything? Didn’t I give you everything? [Chorus]
Didn’t I give you everything? You got the best of me, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I
Hear you cryin’ on my shoulder? You got the best of me, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I
Hear you cryin’ on my shoulder? Didn’t I give you everything, baby? Didn’t I give you everything? When you’re lonely, just remember
I gave you everything
D-d-didn’t I? You got the best of me, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I
Hear you cryin’ on my shoulder? Didn’t I, didn’t I
Didn’t I give you everything? Didn’t I, didn’t I? (Baby)
Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I? [Bridge]
Oh, yeah (Baby)
Didn’t I, didn’t I? I gave you everything, baby (baby, baby)
Didn’t I? Beggin’ hold me ’til it’s over? Didn’t I give you everything, baby? [Verse 2]
I’m over this tug of war
I’ve told you so many times before
Now I’m finally lettin’ go of the rope, yeah
Well this game is too ugly, boy
And these hands are tired from keepin’ you up
And my heart hurts from holdin’ out hope
[Pre-Chorus]
And I can’t stay clean
With all the dirt you’re throwing at me
Then turn around and call me your queen
Too blind to see, the way it stings, or the pain it brings
[Chorus]
Didn’t I give you everything? Beggin’ hold me ’til it’s over? Didn’t I give you everything? When you’re lonely, just remember
I gave you everything
D-d-didn’t I?

Taylor Swift – Delicate

Isn’t it? Is it chill that you’re in my head? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Is it too soon to do this yet? Is it too soon to do this yet? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it delicate? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate
Isn’t it? Isn’t it? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate
Isn’t it? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate (delicate)
‘Cause I like you
Is it cool that I said all that? Isn’t it? Phone lights up my nightstand in the black
Come here, you can meet me in the back
Dark jeans and your Nikes, look at you
Oh damn, never seen that color blue
Just think of the fun things we could do
‘Cause I like you
[Pre-Chorus]
This ain’t for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
You must like me for me…
Yeah, I want you
We can’t make
Any promises now, can we, babe? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate (delicate)
Is it cool that I said all that? [Verse 2]
Third floor on the West Side, me and you
Handsome, you’re a mansion with a view
Do the girls back home touch you like I do? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Is it too soon to do this yet? Isn’t it? Isn’t it delicate? (Yeah, I want you)
Is it cool that I said all that? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate (delicate)
Is it cool that I said all that? Long night, with your hands up in my hair
Echoes of your footsteps on the stairs
Stay here, honey, I don’t wanna share
‘Cause I like you
[Pre-Chorus]
This ain’t for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
You must like me for me…
Yeah, I want you
We can’t make
Any promises now, can we, babe? Isn’t it? But you can make me a drink
[Chorus]
Is it cool that I said all that? Is it chill that you’re in my head? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Is it chill that you’re in my head? Isn’t it? Is it chill that you’re in my head? Isn’t it? [Intro]
This ain’t for the best
My reputation’s never been worse, so
You must like me for me…
We can’t make
Any promises now, can we, babe? But you can make me a drink
[Verse 1]
Dive bar on the East Side, where you at? But you can make me a drink
[Chorus]
Is it cool that I said all that? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate
Isn’t it delicate? [Bridge]
Sometimes I wonder when you sleep
Are you ever dreaming of me? Is it too soon to do this yet? Sometimes when I look into your eyes
I pretend you’re mine, all the damn time
‘Cause I like you
[Chorus]
Is it cool that I said all that? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate (delicate)
(Yeah, I want you)
Is it cool that I said all that? ‘Cause I know that it’s delicate
Isn’t it?

[Pre-Chorus: Iggy Azalea]
‘Cause my heart beats for you only

[Pre-Chorus: Iggy Azalea]
‘Cause my heart beats for you only

[Verse 2: Iggy Azalea]
I feel like God playin’ tricks on me, got a fix on me
Feel the weight of the world like I got a brick on me
Had a dance with the devil and he got a grip on me
I’m just tryna get to heaven, hope you got a ticket for me, uh
I’ve been sending up prayers I need feedback
Past full of sin can someone delete that
My path got muddy, I feel like my feet trapped
Can you give me the strength now to beat that? [Verse 1: Iggy Azalea]
Been around the world and I, I, I, I can’t find my baby
Things gettin’ crazy, losin’ my patience
Why you keep me waitin’?

Lorde – Supercut (El-P Remix) Lyrics

[Verse 3: El-P]
Dirty, all-black Jeep, 2018
With the clean rhyme rappers on deck, check
Came with the bad bars, bully with the big box
Trust we’re the runners on set
G-G-Give it up, you don’t got a bit of luck left
Nah, not even a itty bit of fresh (Good lord)
Fall on your sword for the crime abhorrent
That’s your reward for the mindless whorin’
[Verse 4: Killer Mike]
This for everybody that hated
Michael and Jamie, we made it
Everyday debt due, we paid it
My cadence is heinous
You keep tryna play us, and you gon’ be famous
And just like the top on my 7-5 drop
I’m just hittin’ a button and you gon’ be brainless
And that’s from the back of a ‘lac where I’m smokin’ the sack
Wit’ my girl, watchin’ seasons of Shameless
[Verse 5: El-P]
There’s no manual, Run the Jewels publish shit annual
Every minute I’m in it, I’m runnin’ a clinic
Wild animal, livin’ like a Fine Young Cannibal
Citizen of civics, admit it, the kid get it
Earth’s a hot block, [?] chop chop
[?] my heart just pop off
The hot rocks shooters will knock your whole op off
That’s why I don’t got tocks on the clock to rock soft
[Verse 6: Lorde]
So I fall into continents and cars
All the stages and the stars
I turn all of it to just a su-
[Chorus: Lorde]
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of, supercut of, super, super [Intro: Lorde]
In my
Supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of, supercut of, supercut of us
[Verse 1: Lorde]
In my head, I play a supercut of us
All the magic we gave off
All the love we had and lost
And in my head, the visions never stop
These ribbons wrap me up
But when I reach for you, there’s just a supercut
[Chorus: Lorde]
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of us
Supercut, supercut of us
[Pre-Chorus: Lorde]
In your car, the radio up
In your car, the radio up
In your car, the supercut of us
We keep tryna talk about us
Slow motion, I’m watchin’ our love
In your car, the supercut of, supercut of
[Verse 2: Killer Mike]
We is the villains, and there ain’t no chillin’
Get body bags and the toe tags, yeah
Scoundrels in housin’, we tore through your town
And we reload it and now we back, man
Forgiato rollin’ on a ’96 Impala
With a pretty thing, show me where I’m slayin’
I ain’t playin’ with you lames
700 horse in the Hellcat
Take ya bitch, where ya at?

A$AP Ferg – Kristi YamaGucci Lyrics

you gon’ have to step up
Cruisin’ in a Wraith, see if they make a get-up
Pull up to the place, fucked her when we met up
Yeah, I’m gettin’ buzz, but I never let up
I ain’t seen a doctor, but I got my check up, check up, check up, check up, check up
I’m playin’ chess, you stuck on checkers
That’s why your gang can never check us
They take your chain, and now you neck-less
Check up, check up, check up, check up
I got a check on my watch (wait)
I’m losin’ track of time ’cause I don’t hear tick or no tock (yeah) Is that a Nextel baby, Chirp baby
This nigga got a Boost, baby, what the fuck
Nigga, you gotta step it up
You need to get you a trap phone
You need to get one of these fuckin’ Motorolas
Niggas can’t even track us, baby
[Verse 3: IDK]
Finger roll, finger roll, finger roll, finger roll, dunk, yeah
Ballin’ on my enemies, I ain’t even tyin’ up to punks
Imagine when I tie ’em up, yeah
I shake ’em, they gon’ need a crutch, yeah
And I ain’t talkin’ groupie bitches when I say they got their panties in a bunch
I’m talkin’ niggas, I ain’t talkin’ nada
They ain’t talkin’ figures, gotta be six, seven or better
Tryna get a house, gotta get my bread up
Tryna stay on pace? [Intro: NickNPattiWhack]
Aw lord baby, she got a flip phone
Damn baby, I been smokin’
Been chokin’ and its so potent baby, we high baby
And you got the silver Gucci by my man Ferg, baby
You a giant baby, you steppin’ on these niggas’ necks
Sometimes you gotta just ease that left foot off baby
And then put your right foot on the, on the top of them, baby
And choke them even harder
‘Cause you’s a dawg, you’s fuckin’ champ, these are puppies baby
They can’t fuck with you baby, lord
[Verse 1: A$AP Ferg]
Racks on racks on racks, Dapper Dan all on my back
Double G all on my cap, monogram on a Maybach
Testin’ that pussy like Pap (smear), eatin’ that bitch from the back (yeah)
Mumble rap all on that cat (yeah), [Lil Pump?] she makin’ it clap
I’m ’bout to write Yammy a letter, tell ’em I’m doin’ way better
“Plain Jane” the song of the year, I’m busy just chasin’ the lettuce
I’ma Calvin Klein model on billboards, I did a campaign with the fellas
Adidas done gave me another deal and Hennessy too, they got cheddar (alright)
Shoot videos in the PJs, then I go hop on a PJ (yeah)
They sendin’ me all these free clothes, momma just put it on eBay
I run the shit like a relay, niggas gon’ have to press replay
Yammy say hi to my daddy for me and Jam Master Jay for TJ
[Interlude: NickNPattiWhack]
Goddamn, nigga
When it be raining outside nigga, you the umbrella
‘Cause that shit just bounce off you with that Gucci
God, nigga I’ma call you Kristi YamaGucci, baby
‘Cause you just all over the fuckin’ world with this shit, baby
Niggas cannot touch you
[Verse 2: Denzel Curry]
Trench coat mob is a Go-Go Gadget
You don’t wanna see a pretty scene get drastic
Fuckin’ with the lords, no Frodo Baggins
Niggas bring your clothes to the screen like a fat bitch
Even though my name is Denzel, no actin’
Pap-pap, puttin’ everything inside a casket
Track that, everything is gonna be a classic
Wrap that, put that bitch inside a prophylactic
When I’m rappin’, got no hard-on, double tappin’
From a city built on coke and pistol-packin’
See you flaggin’ and they packin’ what you lackin’
Take you out and then they act like nothin’ happen
Amnesia, got rid of the heater
Back in the hood where they blowin’ on reefer
I follow the light while you follow the leader
Now a nigga overseas where they checkin’ my Visa, look
[Interlude: NickNPattiWhack]
Nah baby, what kinda flip phone you got?

Future – I.C.W.N.T. (Freestyle) Lyrics

[Intro]
Swerve, swrr, swrr, whrr
8…
Yuh, yuh, yuh
[Chorus]
These bitches ain’t shit, we fuck ’em together
I change up my hoes like I change up the weather
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
Bought a couple bags, Pucci on splash
Dropped a little cash, that’s all that
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
[Verse 1]
I can’t wife no thot, forty at my spot
Smashed her in my drop, got some crazy top
I done damn near wrecked, off that hoe neck
I got a little better flex, I damn near was obsessed
All that is is a bougie freak
Saddity bitch from Laguna Beach
Pussy good and her throat deep
Sucked so long, made her nose bleed
I ain’t savin’ no slutty, I hit her and her buddy
Bought the freak a little puppy but she ain’t nothin’ but my cuddy
I can’t wife no thot, suck my dick till she see snot, ha
Came from out the slums, fuck these thotties ’cause I’m hot
Hunnid round drum and I shot it on the spot
Codeine on her tongue ’cause I’m drinkin’ syrup alot
Did a donut out the lot soon as I turned out the parkin’ lot
I can’t wife no thot, no, I can’t wife no thot
I had bought some Cartiers ’cause that mouth there on lock
Gucci sock get Louis top, big chain made her pussy pop
Earrin’ got her lashin’ out, walkin’ round like a rental cop
Checkin’ bitches, they be on the ‘Gram
Check her phone, I think she tryna scam
I ain’t tryna save these hoes, no thank you, ma’am
I hit that nanny on green-green, swallow my cum, no ring-ring
Red Ferrari a mean ting, I got a mean ting
Came with her panties, I gave her some lean-lean
I gave her the clean-clean
She want that molly, I gave her a green bean
She took off her wing-wings
I put her inside of the Bentley thing
Fucked up her Maybelline
Maybe she think she more than what she is
Maybe she thinkin’ queen
Maybe she think Super gone save her
Maybe she fuckin’ ’round with the neighbors
[Chorus]
These bitches ain’t shit, we fuck ’em together
I change up my hoes like I change up the weather
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
Bought a couple bags, Pucci on splash
Dropped a little cash, that’s all that
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
I can’t wife no thot, I can’t wife no thot
[Outro]

Set fire to you number ones
Baby where I’m coming from is nine hundred ninety nine millis till I’m nine hundred ninety nine billi
Who can fuck with me?

JayteKz – Deep Skies Lyrics

[Verse 2: JayteKz]
And dear family, I know it’s hard for you to listen, but this is how I feel, I hope that I can be forgiven
I feel imprisoned, I don’t know how to escape
Yeah, Imma victim of my own self-defeat and hate
I-I-I wish I wasn’t fucked up
I-I-I wish I could look up
I-I-I wish that I was lying to you
Wish I was sharing smiles instead of fucking crying to you
I’m sorry for it all, but this broken heart is raw
I ain’t got no where to turn to and I don’t know who to call
Got no choice but to crawl, I can’t stand up on my feet
Every time I fucking fall, man I no longer want to breathe
Feel my soul getting weak, and my heart’s getting heavy
I’m begging on my knees for the lord to come and get me
And when my time comes all I ask is don’t forget me
My purpose was fulfilled, I’m no longer feeling empty
[Chorus: JayteKz]
I can hardly feel now
Every single day I am going numb
I can only hope the end is near now
I don’t want to stay, I want to run
No one understands these tears I shed now, no one understands the hell I am in
Honestly, just wish that I was dead now
Can I bare this misery within? [Verse 1: JayteKz]
It ain’t no secret, I’m always vocal with the way I feel
I don’t wanna be alive, depression is gonna get me killed
Family says I need help but I don’t think they fucking get it
What I feel is carved inside my heart and it’s deeply embedded
I-I-I wish it was that simple, I wish this made me stronger, but instead It has left me crippled
It’s hard for me to smile and when I do It’s fabricated
I’m slowly breaking down and my happiness is barricaded
I fucking hate this shit, numb the pain by taking sips
Every time I’m sober I just want to slit my fucking wrists
Hoping I will bleed to death, chocking till I lose my breath
Father, please forgive me, but I can’t go on within my flesh
Death seems like the only route, only place where peace is found
Mom and Dad I love you, and I’m sorry If I let you down, but I can’t take no more
My heart is fucking torn, I wish this was a nightmare, wish I was never born
[Chorus: JayteKz]
I can hardly feel now
Every single day I am going numb
I can only hope the end is near now
I don’t want to stay, I want to run
No one understands these tears I shed now
No one understands the hell I am in
Honestly, just wish that I was dead now
Can I bare this misery within?
