Liza Anne – Small talks

Small talks small talks
We don’t talk enough
Small talks too much
Somebody get me out of here
(x2)
I used to go and talk to everyone I see
But now when I go out
It’s just keeping me from sleep
(x2)
I don’t wanna be rude
I don’t wanna be rude
I don’t wanna be rude
No, I don’t wanna try these (small talks)
Small talks small talks
We don’t talk enough
Small talks too much
Somebody get me out of here
(x2) [Indie-pop music]

I’m frustrated, I think I hate it
I can’t even look interested
I think the older I get, the harder it gets
Maybe I’m fine, maybe I’m dying
Oh, maybe I’m just tired
Tired of trying the oldest conversation together
it means nothing at all
Small talks small talks
We don’t talk enough
Small talks too much
Somebody get me out of here
Are we friends? did i miss it? we never left it
I’m too passive-aggressive
Maybe it’s mean, maybe I don’t wanna do these conversation
But I I I I just can’t do it. Cause you’re talking to me like we’re connecting
Why should we pick it up?

Lloyd Banks – Mighty Healthy Freestyle Lyrics

Stay silent
You crossed the crew’s gray island
Don’t box me into your categories I’m alien
Them records, I hear nothin’ but fear in ’em
Break a chair on ’em
I see a nigga dye one more color I disappear again
Y’all breedin’ bitches
My blade’ll give a cesarean
I give it everything I had, another high speed choice
Thinkin’ “what more do you want from me?” in Tyrese voice
All we do is make it stack the homicide green boys
Unnecessary altercations keep the concrete moist
I hate makin’ shit, disciplinary jab though
Limited edition lab coat, Louie Supreme collabo’
[Outro]
For every blow, depends on breath control
So it’s the first thing you must learn
Fortunately it’s easy
You’ll soon learn Gotta fight to get on like Love & Hip Hop
Mary Jane’ll tie me up, fell in love with the Ziploc
I done seen your true colors for green niggas’ll flip-flop
Hope you take your best shot followed by something tragic
Have to show you Cs and I’ll spit in your face like a battle rapper
Shit, I only hit the weed slow, came up a rabbit clapper
Prayed on the God, glow and he gave it to me, tabernacle
Never really liked y’all, hate you, know to my next feed
Baguette sleeve
A loyal my begger’s my pet peeve
Time for me to jet, heavy time on the jet skis
The dopest supplier, you trippin’ to let the connect leave
Audacity dissin’ veterans puttin’ up tanking numbers
Ain’t no deuce deuce in yo’ boot, them fuckin’ ankle huggers
When we hug these mics we get busy
I’m thinkin’ “Who is he?”
A stupid motherfucker truck is moving, dumping free work all over to feed the customers
Settin’ the soundtrack for the realer kind of greatest hustlers
Haters to fuel up the fire, doubters to act astounded
Smoke for the watches, gorilla glue with the wax around it
Dollars to rev up the ops and ammo to back them down with
Double bottoms for ass kickin’, the black and brown shits
Certifications debatable, take a fall stay quiet
Your fan base ain’t gone save you, you hit the floor stage divin’
Fire trail from me flying
You takin’ off? [Intro]
You know who the fuck it is
2018
Two thousand and make cream
At Your Request
[Verse: Lloyd Banks & Ghostface Killah]
Masked up on my last case
Figured no face, no karma
Throwin’ salt at me
Prefer my shade by Dolce Gabbana
Rideable, bet the dough gets some kinda rotation out her
Stand for nothin’ fall for anything, prada replace the dollar
Havin’ 70s gettin’ bent out of shape and I’m in tip-top
Want this shit? Brave pilot
You makin’ moves?

Mikky Ekko – Come Out and Die Lyrics

[Bridge]
Nothing’s coming out
‘Cause I’m still not allowed
You know, or don’t you? What you know, don’t you? [Verse 2]
Oh, woah woah
Come and die
Stuck in the sun for a while
Busy pushing me just ’cause the pushes stay long(?) and
Don’t take calls, ’cause we’ll belong
‘Cause we’re still young animals;
Fun being cannibals
Stuck in the bad way of life
[Chorus]
Won’t you come out and die
And die for me? If your living is all inside a dream
Well there’s a dirty cop comin’
Dirty cops don’t come clean
So would you come out and die
For me? If your living is all inside a dream
There’s a dirty cop comin’
Dirty cops don’t come clean
So would you come out and die
For me? [Verse 1]
Keep my song my song alive
Where everybody’s happy
Oh, come and die
The least you could do is come out
[Chorus]
Would you come out and die
And die for me? If your living is all inside a dream
Well there’s a dirty cop comin’
And dirty cops don’t come clean
Oh, would you come out and die
And die for me? If your living is all inside a dream
We’re just two animals(?)
Lovin’ on, loving it(?)
So won’t you come out and die? [Chorus]
Would you come out and die
And die for me? What you know
[Chorus]
Would you come out and die
And die for me?

Rapsody Details How Kendrick Lamar Changed Her Life

Zacari “It feels good to compete with your friends, you can compete but in a healthy way,” she said. K-Dot is also nominated in the Best Rap Album category for his album DAMN. Rapsody says working with Kendrick Lamar changed her life and career for the better. As far as being the only female rapper nominated in the rap album category at the Grammy’s, Rapsody says it’s bittersweet because she grew up seeing a platter of female emcees in the 1990s and now it seems like there can only be one female mainstream rapper at a time. Speaking with Larry King in a recent interview, Rapsody details how Kendrick Lamar significantly impacted her career last year and put on a scale she never thought she would reach. She is the only female rapper to be nominated in the category this year. Now she is nominated for a Grammy awards for Best Rap Album for her latest project Laila’s Wisdom. They were both fans of each other at the time and Kendrick was a big fan of the producer. She says he first met the Compton rapper back in 2011 through producer 9th Wonder. Related Posts

Cardi B Didn’t Want Offset To Get Neck Tattoo Of Her Name

A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Jan 14, 2018 at 8:18am PST

The tattoo comes in the wake of a cheating scandal plaguing the couple’s relationship after hackers hack his iCloud account and started leaking videos and photos. “She was flattered but not too happy that he did and for a number of reasons because now this puts extra pressure on her to also get his name tatted on her and I don’t think she wants to get any more tattoos,” sources said. At what point of the relationship would u do it? The tat is also symbolic in that it shows her as a strong woman. Cardi B objected to Offset when he told her that he was going to get a tattoo of her. “Matter of fact she regrets the large one she has now and wished she could get read of it. Dancehall HipHop was also told that Cardi B’s favorite cartoon growing up was Power Puff Girls and that’s the reason why Offset got a tattoo with that theme. The tat depicts Cardi B as a Power Puff Girl with her name under it the image in large letters. Sources added that Bardi has since warmed up to the tattoo and feels the gesture shows her how much he loves her. Would u tattoo ur girl/man name on u?? There is also a rumored explicit tape floating around of the two, prompting Cardi B to fire off a letter from her attorney to stop the leaking. A lot of people see her and her gangsta vibe, but she is not big on tattoos. #offset gets Cardi B name tatted on him.

JAY-Z Trademark Jaybo From “The Story Of O.J.” Video

“The Story of O.J.” is the first video to be released from the album and it received raved reviews among rap critics. There are already some talks that JAY-Z is planning to release some merchandise featuring the Jaybo character like mugs and T-Shirts, or perhaps he could be featured in some upcoming music videos. The character is often characterized as racist due to his depiction and JAY-Z’s single also has a racial tone. The Jaybo character was inspired by the famous Sambo character from the 1899 children’s book, The Story of Little Black Sambo. During a recent interview with iHeartRadio, Hov spoke about the meaning behind the single, saying it was just a song about “we as a culture, having a plan, how we’re gonna push this forward. We all make money, and then we all lose money, as artists especially.”

The science behind stunning sunsets and rainbows between clouds

The sun just reflects through the little water vapour, generally up the top of the clouds, or ice crystals.”These vapour drops are especially tiny, meaning the sunlight that diffracts off them is especially spread out. Photo:
Sandwiched between two clouds, this rainbow was the result of tiny ice particles and water vapour in the atmosphere. These allow for fascinating variations of colour.Got it. (Supplied: Fiona Prentice)
“It’s called iridescence or irisation,” he said.”It’s the same as a rainbow, basically. They are especially common after thunderstorms.It is a lot to take in, but Mr Browne said all this knowledge enhanced rather than distracted from his enjoyment of a wet season sunset.”If I’m sitting there enjoying the sunset, I’m thinking about all the physical processes that take place in order for me to see that.”It’s just little scientific tidbits that just pop into my head while I’m enjoying my feed down at Mindil.” (ABC Open Contributor: Jonathan)
But as the Sun sets, and the path those blue wavelengths travel to reach our eyes becomes up to 40 times longer, a corresponding shift in colour takes place.”Think of it as an extinction of the blue colour as the light travels through the atmosphere,” Mr Browne explained.”All of that blue light’s eliminated as far as our eyes can see and we end up with a very red sunset.”This is why the sky appears bluest at solar noon, when the Sun’s rays are closest to us and blue wavelengths are only travelling the shortest distance. So what’s behind the rainbow in the clouds?The answer to Sunday’s rainbow cloud came from talkback caller Mick, who told ABC Radio Darwin’s Richard Margetson that such occurrences were somewhat common but fleeting in Darwin’s skies. It’s a vision of pure glory: thick banks of cloud and a setting sun lighting up the sky in colours from pastel pink to chimney red.In Darwin’s steamy wet season, it is not uncommon to find people gazing outwards from camp chairs on the shoreline, where the open harbour mouth offers uninterrupted views of these vivid light displays over rippled water. And on Sunday night locals were treated to another atmospheric phenomenon when a rainbow briefly appeared between layers of stormy cloud.Unsurprisingly, there is much more to these vivid vistas than meet the eye.”They’re very visually pleasing but the science behind it is quite complex,” meteorologist Jackson Browne said.Mr Browne, who said he had always had an inquisitive, curious mind, began to “tease apart what makes a sunset tick” while studying to become a meteorologist.”It brings together the science of the very, very small — down to the atomic level — up to the size of the distance between here and the Sun.”The time that that light ray has taken from the centre of the Sun is 50,000 years, and once it leaves the Sun’s surface it’s another eight-and-a-half minutes to us.”And then it does all sorts of fantastic stuff once it travels through the atmosphere and eventually reaches the eyeball.” Red sky at nightOnce this light enters the atmosphere, certain gases begin to block parts of the spectrum of wavelengths that sunlight carries.These wavelengths are associated with different colours, meaning some are filtered out before we even see them. Photo:
Flocks of locals take to Darwin’s shoreline each afternoon to watch the spectacular colours on display. Layers of cloud a ‘canvas for the sunset to project on’So why are spectacular sunsets so common during the wet season?According to Mr Browne, one reason is that the frequent thunderstorms and accompanying rain have a way of vacuuming pollutants out of the lower parts of the atmosphere.”Particulates — when I talk about particulates I mean dust and haze and smoke — can tend to get lifted up into the atmosphere,” he said.”So if you get a thunderstorm maybe two hours before the sunset and it just cleanses the atmospheric column, so to speak, when you get that sunset coming through it’ll be really quite vibrant.”Additionally, clouds are much friendlier to the wavelengths that produce those vivid reds.”It reflects all colours equally, so having mid to upper-level cloud can really act as a canvas for the sunset to project on.”Another legacy of a good storm is the mammatus cloud, a pouch-like formation often attached to larger clouds after a thunderstorm. Others are invisible to the human eye.”When it comes down to visible wavelengths — what you and I can see — the light of a shorter wavelength — so blue — interacts more strongly with the atmosphere and it tends to get scattered away from that light path,” Mr Browne said.
