I put up this post the other day and got told that I was being judgmental and unreasonable. Wtf? Why? Ok first of all, we are all judgmental so lets not get ahead of ourselves. No matter how lovely and openminded of a person you think you might be, you judge people. Yes, you reading…
When I look back at my past relationships I have to be honest, I can’t help but cringe. I cringe at their actions, I cringe at mine, and then I literally wonder how on earth was that me?? Like, who was that person? It’s really, really weird. I honestly could not imagine entertaining some of…
These are great! If you are struggling for healthy breakfast options and want to steer away from porridge oats, try boiling these up for 90 seconds; they’re thick, creamy and full of protein! They can be a bit bitter though so add coconut sugar or agave nextar for sweetness. My son absolutely adores them! And…
Bit of a random topic but interesting all the same. The other day I was out shopping with a girlfriend and my son and as we were entering a store, a couple were just leaving. The man made it quite obvious that he liked the look of my face, and stared during the time it…
Honestly, give up this belief that eating healthily means eating boring, tasteless food. I love food. There is no way I am willing to eat food I don’t like in order to be healthy. You tell someone you’re a veggie/vegan and they assume you eat nuts for breakfast and leaves for dinner. I mean, I…
Can you hear that? No? Listen harder. Surely you can hear that? Nothing you say? Well that’s my point; nothing can be heard. No noise. Silence. Silence! What a rarity. It can only mean a few things; your child/children have ran away, someone has been brave enough to take your kids, or your child is/children…
Success is limited to a few “lucky” individuals right? Not all of us can be privileged with success, just those whose “fate” it is to be successful right? WRONG. WRONG!! Every single one of us has the ability to be successful, as success is knowing your destiny. Once you realise your destiny it is absolutely…
The last few weeks have been a blur! It is an extremely busy time for me, what with filming, mentoring, a new staff selection process, a new office for Snobbish TV and the doing up of the new music studio! I am honestly not sure how I even made it to some of the recent…
So I recently found myself saying something not unfamiliar to many of you I’m sure…. “I’m tired of people taking the piss, people take kindness for weakness, I’m sick of everyone’s sly and selfish ways, everyone is out for themselves…. I’m DONE with people!!’ It seemed to me that I was running around doing…
Here we are
here we are
This one right here is for the people
[Hook] (Sample -MAMADOU & MARIAM, “SABALI”)
Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kiye
Ni kêra môgô
Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kagni
Ni kêra môgô
Ay yo D. Lets go all the way on this one.
[Damian Marley – Verse 1]
Some of the smartest dummies
Can’t read the language of Egyptian mummies
An’ a fly go a moon
And can’t find food for the starving tummies
Pay no mind to the youths
Cause it’s not like the future depends on it
But save the animals in the zoo
Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money
This is how the media pillages
On the TV the picture is
Savages in villages
And the scientist still can’t explain the pyramids, huh
Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
Stereotyping the image of the images
And this is what the image is
You buy a khaki pants
And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
An’ a thief out gold and thief out the scrolls and even the buried bones
Some of the worst paparazzis I’ve ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see
And that’s all they will ever show
So the ones in the west
Will never move east
And feel like they could be at home
Dem get tricked by the beast
But a where dem ago flee when the monster is fully grown?
Solomonic linage whe dem still can’t defeat and them coulda never clone
My spiritual DNA that print in my soul and I will forever Own Lord
Yeah, Sabali. Thats patience. That’s what the old folks told me…
Discovering the World before this World. A World buried in time.
Uncover with rhymes. It gets no realer.
[Damian Marley: Verse 2]
Huh, we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
Can you read thoughts? can you read palms?
Huh, can you predict the future? can you see storms, coming?
The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh
The average man can’t prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of
And still won’t research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of
Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they’re smart and cunning
Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that’s when their nose start running
And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud
Can you read signs? can you read stars?
Can you make peace? can you fight war?
Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? huh
Can you survive, Against All Odds, Now?
It’s crazy when you feed people the truth you don’t know how they’re gonna react. You’re scared of wrong doers, people that just ignorant, You’re scared of the truth, be patient for now.
[Nas: Verse 3]
Who wrote the Bible? Who wrote the Qur’an?
And was it a lightning storm
That gave birth to the Earth
And then dinosaurs were born? damn
Who made up words? who made up numbers?
And what kind of spell is mankind under?
Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
Microwaved it and try eat
No matter what we’ll survive it
What’s hue? what’s man? what’s human?
Anything along the land we consuming
Eatin’, deletin’, ruin
Trying to get paper
Gotta have land, gotta have acres
So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
Watch n-ggas play the game like the lakers
In a world full of 52 fakers
Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers
You superstitious? throw salt over your shoulders
Make a wish for the day cuz
Like somebody got a doll of me
Stickin’ needles in my arteries
But I can’t feel it
Sometimes it’s like ‘pardon me, but I got a real big spirit’
I’m fearless…. I’m fearless
Don’t you try and grab hold of my soul
It’s like a military soldier since seven years old
I held real dead bodies in my arms
Felt their body turn cold, oh
Why we born in the first place
If this is how we gotta go?
This goes to all the wisdom and knowledge seekers of the World. Sabali, Patience, yeah.
