LYRICS

Magazeen ft Wale "My Town" Lyrics:

No idea the youths, them senseless
Shot innuh ya head
Ah make your body drop lifeless
In my town, my town
And don’t ya call 911
‘Cause the Babylon no give a fuck about the black man
Innuh my town, my town

[Magazeen] Let me speak, first to the police
Killin’ all my brothers in the streets
Then uh drive home to your family
How you sleep when you left uh next family uh weep
Justice, is there a such thing?
‘Cause every time we see the judge we never win
So don’t judge me by the color of my skin
We got a dream like Martin Luther, that’s the king
Believe in us

No idea the youths, them senseless
Shot innuh ya head
Ah make your body drop lifeless
In my town, my town
And don’t ya call 911
‘Cause the Babylon no give a fuck about the black man
In my town, my town

[Wale] The streets never loved a nigga
And we could never trust a bitch or no politician
That's why I spittin' tryna get it anyway I'm livin'
Patriotism ain't beneficial, nigga wear your pistol
Until somebody listen
This for the ghetto they see the struggle, market the image
It’s when them niggas shoot everything with built up aggression
Bald eagle or desert eagle, you pick a preference
We picks up gats a bop bop bop at your picket fences (gunshots)
Yeah, this is soulful my nigga
Hope that I’m just giving you hope my nigga
We the soldiers my nigga
Don’t know you my nigga, but know you my nigga
We ain’t got too much promised
To my future son or daughter
Why use that marijuana?
Go Google that Eric Garner and tell me it’s hope for the youth
And just who can get us out here
When the youth that’s out there is only contributing problem

No idea the youths them senseless
Shot innuh ya head
Ah make your body drop lifeless
In my town, my town
And don’t ya call 911
‘Cause the Babylon no give a fuck about the black man
In my town, my town

MMG's resident reggae artist, Magazeen, just dropped a new track with fellow labelmate Wale. Stream "My Town" above.

The track is an impressive rock reggae fusion with some soul undertones. With lines like "Justice, is there a such thing? / 'Cause every time we seen the judge we never win," the song acts as a cautionary tale about the corruption and violence present in each rappers' hometowns (Jamaica for Magazeen and Nigeria and DC for Wale). Magazeen does an excellent job of pairing a mellow, easy beat with an important message in "My Town."

Keep up with the latest music, news, and video from Wale at his Zumic artist page.
