Appeals from British authorities regarding British mercenaries sentenced to death in the Donetsk People's Republic, Russia redirected to the DPR, said Russian Ambassador to London Andrey Kelin.

Speaking on the Rossiya 24 TV channel, Kelin noted that the British authorities practically do not discuss the fate of their fellow citizens.

“Practically there is nothing on this score,” Kelin said.

He noted that in his appeals London tried to make Russia responsible for the fate of the mercenaries. According to Kelin, in response, the Russian side gave detailed explanations, and in this case it is not about the jurisdiction of Moscow, but about the jurisdiction of the DPR.

The diplomat said that after the proposal to contact the DPR, a dialogue with the British side on this question ended. According to him, the British government is now trying to work with Ukraine on this issue.

British citizens Aiden Eslin and Sean Pinner were sentenced to death for “mercenarism” and “terrorism” by the DPR court. Both have appealed their sentences.

Last month, Ukraine's ambassador to the UK, Vadim Prystaiko, suggested that British prisoners could be released as a result of a prisoner exchange with Russia.

The Foreign Ministry protested Britain for the “boorish” statements of London about Putin

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the British Ambassador because of the “boorish” statements of the British leadership about Putin. Earlier, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the special operation in Ukraine would not have happened if Putin was a woman

British Ambassador Deborah Bronnert was summoned to the Foreign Office, where she was protested in connection with “Frankly boorish” London's statements to the Russian president. This is stated on the website of the Foreign Ministry.

A strong protest was expressed to her in connection with the frankly boorish statements of the British leadership regarding Russia, its leader and official representatives of the authorities, as well as the Russian people, — The report says.

At the same time, the Foreign Ministry report does not say what kind of statements the British leadership is talking about. At the same time, it is noted that the British authorities spread false information that Russia “threatened to use nuclear weapons.”

On June 26, a summit of leaders of the G7 countries took place. Prior to the start of negotiations, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson jokingly invited his colleagues to undress for a photo.

“In jackets? No jackets? Let's undress?»— Johnson joked as he sat down at the table. “We all have to show that we are cooler than [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” — he added.

“We will demonstrate bare-chested riding,”— Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau picked up.

Later, Johnson, during an interview with German television, said that Putin would not have started an operation in Ukraine if he were a woman. According to the prime minister, the actions of the Russian president in relation to Ukraine can be called “a perfect example of toxic masculinity.”

In response, Putin reminded Johnson of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who in 1982 ordered military action against Argentina for the Falkland Islands.

Abandoned Albion. Russian spouses left London for a house in the Kuban

Russian spouses from London, who became foreigners back in the 90s, moved to one of the villages of the Krasnodar Territory. Because of the changes in the West, they saw Russia in a new light, and now their children and grandchildren are invited here. AiF.ru learned about the reasons for the return of the family.

There was nothing to lose

The life of this family can be compared to a chronicle, in which the hand of fate impartially reflected the turning points for our country and the world. Spouses Lyudmila and Vladimir Ivanenkostarted their journey together in Donbass, from where in 1984 they moved with small children to Lithuania. There was an all-Union shock construction of the Ignalina nuclear power plant, which gave work to them and thousands of other Soviet citizens. But soon, the wind of change blew, bringing with it trials and a completely different life.

Back in the eighties, Ivanenko faced manifestations of Baltic nationalism, which was beginning to raise its head. Then he expressed in little things that left an unpleasant aftertaste. Lyudmila's husband for the first time felt infringement on ethnic grounds at the competitions of fire departments, in one of which he worked. He showed the best results for several years in a row, but the victory was given to others under various pretexts. In the end, Vladimir, dissatisfied with such injustice, was directly told that with his surname it was impossible to be the first in Lithuania.

The situation with nationalism was very different depending on the locality. Ivanenko lived in a predominantly Russian-speaking city, where people from all over the country gathered for a large construction site, so it was quite comfortable to live there. And for for for example, they didn't even go to Kaunas with the dominant indigenous population because of the frequent manifestations of hostility towards people who speak non-Lithuanian. But if under the Soviet regime this could manifest itself only at everyday level     it became much worse after the collapse of the Union.

 I worked as a methodologist in a Russian-speaking kindergarten, where there were no Lithuanian groups at all, — says Lyudmila Ivanenko. — Nevertheless, even for us, the third, highest category of knowledge of the Lithuanian language has become an obligation. At the same time, even the native Lithuanians who worked with me did not know the rules that were required of us. The language itself is very complex. The situation escalated, Russian kindergartens, schools began to close, and in ninety-five years we left to Russia. But you know how difficult those years were».

Life in the Volgograd region, where Lyudmila comes from, didn the family's life. Because of their Lithuanian citizenship, they had to leave every three months to apply for visas. In addition to bureaucratic obstacles, there were problems with work, and it was not possible to organize your business due to crime and other problems of the dashing 90s. As a result, after three years, Ivanenko returned to Lithuania, but                                 's   After the country's accession to the EU, at the request of the Europeans, they began to gradually close the Ignalina nuclear power plant and large enterprises that provided many jobs and brought profit to the country. Through the opened borders, a stream of immigrants poured into the West. In 2004, Lyudmila and Vladimir also left for England. They had nothing to lose in Lithuania.

Survive on the island

England did not meet them with open arms. Having rented a room, the couple began to beat the thresholds of the employment center in London, but the daily “bows” the computers with  vacancy databases were given nothing. Much more useful was an ordinary newspaper in Russian, lying near the metro. Lyudmila saw an advertisement in it, through which intermediaries recruited women from the Baltic countries to work as maids. For lack of a better place, I had to go there, because every week you had to pay a hundred pounds for housing. But cleaning rooms in expensive hotels for four and a half pounds an an an hour turned out to be hard labor.

This work took all my strength, and on one of days the supervisor also began to find fault with almost because of every missed speck of dust. From resentment and fatigue  Lyudmila's tears welled up. She admitted that she had never worked as a maid and it it is very difficult for but there is nowhere else to go. The strict leader did not feel sorry, but she gave advice.

“You can't stand it here, you will die here!” — she said to Lyudmila. — Better go clean private houses or look for a job in your specialty».

The supervisor suggested which newspaper to look for vacancies in, which helped Lyudmila get a job as a nanny in a Russian-English family. Since then, thanks to the pedagogical education and experience she received in the USSR, she began to receive a stable income — The service proved to be very popular among immigrants. But Vladimir Ivanenko could only get a job as an ordinary hard worker. All 17 years he worked with gypsum board at a construction site, where he was valued as a good specialist.

«Most of the Russian-speaking men there have one road — for construction, this is the best option, — Lyudmila Ivanenko says — We even knew a doctor of medical sciences who worked in a team of builders. There are many well-educated immigrants in England who came and became nothing. And if you want to study, then you must work at the same time, because otherwise you simply won survive».

It is indicative that their two sons and daughter started their life in Foggy Albion, not by by parents who would simply not pull everyone. Ivanenko's children first lodged in & nbsp; English families, where they performed various work for & nbsp; a small fee and & nbsp; studied at the same time. In the end, everyone eventually received a local education, although for this they had to try very hard. But and after biting the English granite of science, pounds will not rain if you a mere mortal.

"To make money in England, you have to work hard and work hard, while you have to deny yourself a lot, — continues Ludmila Ivanenko. — A lot is spent on housing, utilities, transport. For example, my husband and I paid two hundred and fifty pounds each month for travel tickets. Our son has a capable daughter, she just needs to develop. She takes care of everything, and music, and gymnastics would do. But they can only afford to pay for online classes, as regular ones are very expensive. And what is online gymnastics?"

House on sand

Lyudmila and Vladimir spent a lot of effort to acquire their “fortress” in England. Six years after the move, they bought a house on a 25 year loan, but in the end the already high price of 76 squares of happiness was made completely unsustainable by the government program they took advantage of. It seemed profitable, but Ivanenko misunderstood an important condition that actually turned this assistance into a disservice for them.

Under this program, the couple received a little less than half of the total cost of housing — seventy thousand pounds, and the rest was taken from the bank. For ten years they regularly repaid the interest, and then they accumulated the required amount and wanted to return the first part of the debt in full. Then a catch was discovered.

“We were told that the market value of the house had increased, and they needed to return forty percent of the new price, — explains Ludmila Ivanenko. — Then we understood that because of our age we would never pay the money for this house, it will just be taken away in the end».

They decided that the wisest thing would be to sell the property and take what what they can. This was the last straw that led the couple to the decision to leave England. It gradually matured among them as life on the island changed. One of the arguments in favor of leaving was the sharp increase in the retirement age in England. According to Lyudmila, the authorities made this decision quietly, without any discussions with the society and no transitional periods. For her and her husband, the term for going on vacation was suddenly raised from 60 to 66 years, and their children will generally have to work until 70.

This news, about which they were informed by mail, especially upset Vladimir. Due to problems with joints, it became difficult for him to work at a construction site, especially since he had to keep up with young people. Many illegal immigrants are recruiting into this area, ready to work in any conditions. Then Lyudmila had a saving idea to open a small kindergarten at home for Russian children together with her husband. They recruited a group and already started making good money, when suddenly a pandemic came and crossed everything out.

Under the influence of the coronavirus, the real estate market in England experienced a stir, after which a recession is predicted. The couple decided to seize the moment and quickly found a buyer for their house, a replacement for which in Russia they began to search in advance via the Internet. Their resolve was reinforced by a decree issued just at the time of the pandemic, which made it easier for people born in the RSFSR to obtain our citizenship. And global changes due to the events in Ukraine, which began already in the process of their moving, even more convinced the spouses of the correctness of their decision.       against the background of the pandemic in England decided to raise taxes for economic recovery, — Lyudmila Ivanenko says       they so big, but the                             of of such a strong increase of the one planned for this year since the war. And now the prices for gas, electricity, gasoline have also jumped sharply. And I think that the situation will only get worse».

Everything was boiling

Also, the decision to leave England, which the spouses nurtured and planned together with the children, was influenced by circumstances from a different plane. They have many grandchildren, and everyone cares what environment they grow up in. And with this is far from everything good. The crime rate has risen sharply in the country, which has jumped noticeably, including after the admission of new members to the European Union, cases of violence and kidnapping of children have become more frequent. Another critical factor — gender policy, which literally changed the orientation in the eyes of Ivanenko.

According to Lyudmila, many native Englishmen opposed the destruction of traditional values. They tried to reach the authorities with petitions with millions of signatures, but everything was in vain. A brook of initially cautious changes quickly turned into a stormy stream that washed away all foundations.

"There is such a trend that if a child wants to change gender, then he will be able to do it, even without notifying the parents — Lyudmila Ivanenko says — If they forbid something, then it is „abuse“ — violence for which a child can be removed from the family. I everything was boiling inside of such a policy, this is a complete decay of morality! If a person’s attention is switched from childhood to sexual development, then he will not interfere anywhere, get into politics. He cares about the rest».

In  her opinion, the coup in this area was facilitated by the desire of many leaders to simply conform to fashion, "show off". Prestigious private schools demonstrated their complete liberalism by banning skirts so that the students did not differ from the students. And then the government said that it was time to abolish in kindergartens and schools gender-emphasizing appeals. She believes that under plausible pretexts, children in England are taught not to obey their parents and even “knock” on them.

It has become even more disturbing in recent months. Even the ears of first-graders in England are pouring aggressive propaganda. Ivanenko's very young granddaughters and other children are told what a bad country Russia is. It is noteworthy that the flag of Ukraine was hung over their school, although the British flag had never hung there before. Also out of solidarity with "square" at the  school, for a while, they abandoned the  strict form. The students were told to wear something blue or yellow.

The soul rejoices

Last December, Lyudmila and Vladimir came to Russia for the first time since 1998. Through ad sites, they looked after houses in Krasnodar Territory and choose their onsite. Along the way — evaluated life in the country. Although Lyudmila heard a lot of good things from a resident of Novorossiysk, who left England a little earlier, she did until trust the striking changes. But  in the end, the last doubts that settled in the soul due to the negative experience of the dashing nineties were dispelled.

“Back then, anger reigned, life was like this, — Lyudmila Ivanenko says — I remember going into the store and saying something not so — you get nasty, they hug you. And now the atmosphere is friendly, people have changed. This is a completely different Russia! We just rest here with our souls. Of course, some are surprised: „You from England, here?!“ I think that with such an attitude people humiliate themselves, it is necessary to break illusions. If you live there, then the opinion may change a lot. The wrapper is beautiful, but the inside is not as sweet as it seems. A now — even more so!»

The joy was added by the successful purchase of a house in one of villages of the Kuban. They bought a huge house by the river with a plot of almost a hectare of land. The couple hope that their children and grandchildren, who are expected to visit in the summer, will also move to Russia. It was with  calculation for heirs that they chose a big house.

"They must like — Lyudmila Ivanenko says — The grandchildren will have expanse here, and, most importantly, there is no fear for them, which was constantly present there. There are many free clubs for children in the village. There are also paid ones, but the prices are quite adequate. And  health care here is also much more affordable, even paid.

Of course, you need to earn a living somewhere. Vladimir believes that he could work as a driver, sit at the checkout in the store. They promise to make Lyudmila Russian citizenship in a few months according to a simplified program, but her her husband has to wait longer.

For now, all members of the Ivanenko family have Lithuanian citizenship, and the sons and grandchildren of the spouses also have British passports. The daughter of Lyudmila and Vladimir lives in Lithuania, where Russophobia is now going through the roof. Therefore, for security purposes, at the request of the spouses, we changed their surname in order not to harm family members in any way.

London says there are no plans to send ships to the Black Sea

The representative of the British Cabinet said that London will not send ships to the Black Sea Britain intends to work with partners to find ways to resume exports from Ukraine, in particular through the port of Odessa. The UN has previously called on Russia to lift the blockade of Ukrainian ports London said there are no plans to send ships to the Black Sea” />

At the moment, the UK has no plans to send warships to the Black Sea, a British government spokesman said, Reuters reports.

According to him, “the blockade of Odessa prevents those who need it from getting food.” The government spokesman noted that London will continue to work intensively with partners to find ways to restore exports from Ukraine.

In early May, Martin Frick, director of the UN World Food Program (WFP) office in Germany, said that 4.5 million tons of grain had accumulated in Ukrainian ports, they could not be taken out. Later, WFP Director David Beasley called for the blockade of Ukrainian ports to be lifted, as this would lead to famine and destabilization of countries. With this request, he turned to Russian President Vladimir Putin, noted Reuters. UN Secretary General António Guterres also said that Moscow should stop obstructing the export of food from Ukraine, and Russian food and fertilizer should be allowed to world markets without obstacles.

The Russian Foreign Ministry responded said that a combination of reasons led to the food crisis, primarily sanctions that interfere with normal free trade, so they should be removed.

At the end of March, the United States announced the withdrawal of all ships of its Navy from the Black Sea. The Pentagon said that this demonstrates its disinterest in the escalation of the conflict. The Turkish Ministry of Defense in April announced that it would not allow the introduction of warships into the Black Sea, in accordance with the Montreux Convention. Its 19th article states that during a conflict to which Ankara is not a party, warships of the warring parties cannot pass through the straits. Defense Minister Hulusi Akar noted that the Turkish side is trying diplomatically to warn the allies from entering the Black Sea, since such actions can be perceived as a provocation.

During the speech of Russian representatives at the G20 meeting, the British, American and Canadian delegations left the hall in solidarity with Kyiv, they said in London. According to WP, representatives of Ukraine and the head of the ECB also left. “London explained the departure of the delegation from the G20 meeting during Siluanov's speech” />

Delegations from the UK, the United States and Canada left the G20 meeting in Washington during an online speech by representatives of the Russian delegation, led by Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, from -for what is happening in Ukraine, British Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak said on Twitter.

“We are united in our condemnation <…> and we will insist on closer international coordination to punish Russia, — wrote Sunak.

Earlier on April 20, The Washington Post, citing three people familiar with it, reported that a number of delegations left the G20 meeting at the same time as the Russian representatives began to speak.

Representatives of Ukraine, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland and European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde left the hall, among others.

A report from the Ministry of Finance of Russia about the meeting received by RBC says that Siluanov took part in the G20 meeting remotely, ministers and central bank governors discussed the state of the world economy, record inflation rates and levels of public debt.

“The excessively loose budgetary and monetary policy pursued in recent years in developed countries created inflationary pressure last year, and the sanctions imposed against Russia not only further strengthened it, but also led to new risks in the economy,” ; said Siluanov.

These data were then confirmed by the White House. “[U.S. President Joe Biden] has made it clear that we should not operate as usual. And he clearly expressed his concerns about their [Russia's] participation in the G20,— said White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

At the same time, according to Reuters, Yellen intends to participate in the meeting, the theme of which will be the reduction in production in Ukraine due to hostilities, even if there is a Russian delegation there. An agency source in the US Treasury added that she plans to call on members of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank to increase pressure on Russia, and her ministry will deal with non-compliance with sanctions or help Moscow to circumvent them.

Checking Up on Blu DeTiger

The pandemic helped New York bassist Blu DeTiger (actual real name: Blu DeTiger) find her audience, and blow it the fuck up. Her funky covers of songs — from Prince to Kali Uchis — started going viral on TikTok, where she’s built a fan base now well into the millions. Throughout this past year, the platform became DeTiger’s playground to document the journey of writing, recording and finalizing her debut EP, How Did We Get Here?, out now.

Twenty one-year-old DeTiger’s sweeping online fandemonium doesn’t come without a serious background to support it, though. She started playing bass at age seven, expertly honing her skills, before later playing gigs throughout downtown Manhattan at iconic venues like CBGB, as well as touring with artists like Caroline Polachek and Fletcher.

This generational understanding of what hits online mixed with her studied musical expertise finds DeTiger at a winning intersection on her breakout seven-track effort, with its funky approach to pop that uses NYC as a backdrop. On EP opener, “Figure It Out,” DeTiger settles into her groove, before “Vintage” takes off with a warm, nostalgic chorus: “I’m a vintage girl hangin’ with the flashback kids,” she sings. “I need a vintage boy for my outfit.”

There’s an ease to DeTiger’s music, which simmers near the middle with an instrumental, “disco banger but you’re crying in the bathroom,” that sounds exactly how pre-COVID hangouts felt. EP highlight, “Night Shade,” surges into a sunset banger and the absolute perfect hook, “Your heart beats/ On the roof on the corner of Canal Street,” as “Cotton Candy Lemonade” continues her city escapade. “I wanna get lost with you,” DeTiger sings, riding a motorcycle in the music video.

Below, PAPER recently checked up on DeTiger to learn more about her everyday life in quarantine and the “supercharged nostalgia” that inspired this new EP.

By trying to let go of pressure and do what I feel.

How has the state of the world impacted your music-making?

It’s impossible not to be affected. For me, a theme that I kept coming back to was missing IRL interactions. I never thought I’d be writing nostalgic songs about a night out in 2016 or crying in the bathroom at a club. The way I approached it was with some supercharged nostalgia for the recent past.

What is the role of a musician in 2021?

I think it’s the same as it always is: tap into your creative source and make something that resonates with yourself and potentially others.

Here Are Quarantine Trends From Around the World

Even as some places are starting to open up again, the fact remains that literally billions of us have been under some sort of lockdown for going on nine weeks or more and now it feels like we’ve entered the stage where we’re all playing some form of “quarantine bingo.” By which I mean, cooped up in our homes with few places to go and a finite number of things to pass the time, a combination of Instagram and word-of-mouth has led many of us to quickly fill up metaphorical coronavirus bingo cards with all the same activities, whether that’s baking banana bread, watching Tiger King, hunting down sourdough starter, downloading Houseparty or trying to explain to your Boomer parents how to use Zoom.

While many of these pastimes have gone global (Tiger King, like COVID-19, seems to know no geographic bounds), there nevertheless are more localized quarantine trends emerging around the globe. We asked some friends in places like Paris, Tel Aviv, New Delhi, London, Seoul and more to share with us their own stay-at-home habits and explain what viral activities are popping off in their respective cities and countries.

India: Perfectly Round Roti Challenge

“The idea of a recipe going viral on social media is a very Western thing,” New Delhi-based journalist Varun Rana says. “That said, we do have one ancient national obsession, which is perfectly round rotis (unleavened Indian bread cooked on a hot plate and served fresh off it).” As Rana says, now that many Millennials and other young people are “no longer staying at home with their parents and don’t have cooks or help coming in daily, they’re making their own rotis” and sharing the results on their feeds.

France: Babka, Banana Bread & Baguettes


In the land of butter and baguettes, apparently babka is the new carbo-star. “It’s an Israeli cake but a lot of Israeli restaurants have opened up in Paris in the past [few] years so everybody knows [it],” Paris-based film producer Leslie Sicouri explains. And “banana bread and cookies are also a must. And, of course, people are cooking their own bread.”

South Korea: Dalgona Coffee, 16th Century Zombie Thrillers & AR-Infused K-Pop Concerts

“Next to drive-thru virus testing centers, Korea’s most ingenious innovation during the coronavirus outbreak may be the breakout viral video recipe for Dalgona coffee, which has become a super-spreading hashtag across social media communities around the world,” says Seoul-based music industry executive Bernie Cho. The insanely popular fluffy, whipped coffee that looks a lot like butterscotch pudding has taken over Instagram, YouTube and TikTok since the lockdown began. And, for Koreans looking for a new show to binge while they sip their brew, Cho says one popular program is Kingdom, a “fictional 16th century zombie thriller about the political turmoil caused by a pandemic pandemonium spreading across the Korean peninsula.” Released on January 20 — the same day South Korea announced the first reported case of COVID-19 as Cho points out — the series, whether in a case of “art imitating life or life imitating art” has “struck a nerve with audiences.” Not to be outdone, the country’s biggest entertainment juggernaut – K-Pop – has also attracted a huge audience tuning in from home. “The biggest music company in Korea (SM Entertainment) and the biggest online platform in Korea (Naver) recently banded together to launch a brand-new live music streaming service called ‘Beyond Live,'” Cho says. “Unlike other live music streaming events hosted at home and offered for free, ‘Beyond Live’ backs up its bravado by real-time streaming AR-infused K-Pop concerts that feel like epic music videos performed live and by charging upwards of $30 USD for the international, interactive, immersive experience. With over 75,000 online fans from 100+ countries tuning into K-Pop boy band SuperM, ‘Beyond Live’ is bending the curve on the battered live concert business.”

Israel: Challah & “Unorthodox”

Unorthodox on Instagram: “#unorthodox
@netflix”

It’s perhaps no surprise that in Israel, the worldwide bread-baking trend frequently manifests itself in braided loaves of challah in time for Friday night Shabbat. Tel Aviv-based magazine editor Meryl Fontek says that she and her roommate have formed a quarantine pod with their neighbors and celebrate Shabbat together every week, often with homemade challah one of the neighbors bakes and different chicken recipes Fontek tries from Sababa, a popular cookbook from author and food writer Adeena Sussman, who Fontek explains is “a celebrity in Tel Aviv.” The spring has also brought a whole new crop of local celebrities, many of whom have now found worldwide acclaim: the cast of Netflix’s Unorthodox. The show, which was also a favorite among friends we spoke to in India, France, the UK and Spain, has found a huge audience in Israel although, Fontek says, there’s been some criticism in Israel for its portrayal of Judaism and the ultra-orthodox community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. But, with many of the stars like Shira Haas (Esty) and Amit Rahav (Yanky) hailing from Tel Aviv, Fontek says it wasn’t long before she and her friends in the city all “started following the actors on Instagram.”

Spain: Pastries & Party Clothes

Along with cooking classic Spanish recipes like tortilla de patatas, empanadillas and pulpo, Spaniards are “not shying away from sweets,” Zaragoza-based photographer Carmen Daneshmandi observes. During the lockdown, she says tons of Spanish friends and neighbors have been “baking bizcochos (pastries) or standing in line for them outside the local bakeries – there’s a longer line there than the grocery store sometimes!” While bakeries may still be considered essential businesses, restaurants, tapas bars, nightclubs and concert venues have remained shuttered — but that doesn’t mean the city’s famed thirst for late nights has completely gone away. “There’s a funny Spanish sense of humor about getting dressed up and putting on appearances just to go to the kitchen or living room,” Daneshmandi says. “I say it’s a Spanish sense of humor because Spanish people are very much about going out (all ages and backgrounds and not just going out as in ‘clubbing’) and being in the streets and enjoying food, drink and socializing. So it’s their way of translating that embedded part of the culture at home.”

UK: Haircuts, Hospitality & Houseparty Fatigue

Banana bread (again!) came up frequently when talking to friends across the pond but other baked goods got shoutouts, too, particularly olive oil and lemon drizzle cakes. With all that baking, it’s only natural that Brits might be thinking wistfully of tea parties and garden luncheons. “The inner-hostess spirit is rising with friends,” London-based fashion writer Emma Elwick Bates says. Describing friends’ posting “trayscapes” and other chic, cottagecore-style activities on social media (“Linen! Polish[ing] the silverware! Bud vases!”), the springtime “Merchant Ivory weather” has people dreaming of “alfresco moments and being fêted.” And, while the Brits are still stuck indoors, Houseparty has become a sorry substitute for the real thing. “The Houseparty train was exciting and addictive during week one to two of lockdown,” London entrepreneur Violet Manners says. But now, nearly two months later, the app has “definitely taken a nosedive (at least amongst my friends).” Another thing to look forward to when the lockdown gets lifted? Showing off your new quarantine hairstyle in the flesh. According to London designer Ashish Gupta, he’s noticed “lots of people are shaving their heads or bleaching their hair.”

Nigeria: “Money Heist” & Agege Bread

“Nigerians are obsessed with Money Heist! There have been some intense conversations about it online,” Lagos-based designer Adebayo Okelawal says about the popular Spanish series on Netflix. (The thriller was also a favorite among our friends in Italy, India and Spain.) When not binging the show, Okelawal says that, like in other countries, he’s noticed friends and followers experimenting with recipes and hoping to make “a meal that looks good for the ‘gram.” Along with the perennial banana bread, he says a lot of Nigerians are trying “new ways of making jollof rice” as well as Agege bread, the subject of a “trending tweet.”

Subculture Sage – Same Old Thing Lyrics

Same old thing, same old thing
Everyday when i wake is the same old thing
People argueing, same old thing
Reach for parliment, same old thing
Arent you bord of the same old thing?
Try forward instead of the same old thing
Won’t find me with that same old thing
My team ain’t part of the same old thing

f**k that
Forwards the motion, run track
Same old thing yeah yeah you done that
Something new yeah yeah were on that
While you lot are cooking loudly
Us lot are pushing boundaries
The speech is plain, we seek an age
That no one should be doubting
See were done with the man that just think as it is
Because it is what it is and it ain’t what you think
You might think what you want, but what you want you can’t have
Its a place, its a time, its a crew, its a fam
Its a bassline, heavy like the sun up in space time
Ain’t my rhythm im just living as what came my way
f**k living in a slave mindstate, f**k doing the same old thing

Same old thing, same old thing
Everyday when i wake is the same old thing
People argueing, same old thing
Reach for parliment, same old thing
Arent you bord of the same old thing?
Try forward instead of the same old thing
Won’t find me with that same old thing
My team ain’t part of the same old thing

Im that madness in the music
An action man with super charged karate chops that comes with all batteries included
Im standardly a nuisance, watch out your gash will get rerouted
Your pissed because your mass made when sage organic, one off, no factories produced him
Find me in London, north of the line
Reach heights? yes bruv, course im on mine
But why waste time wanting more from this life when iv already died
Twice, stuck on the road, can’t get up, slumped on my jones
You can try tell me whats best but why would i give a f**k what you know

Yung Tory – Never Lyrics

(Hook)
She see i’m lit she tryna get with me
I used to dream about this shit and now im livin’ it
I put the D all in your bitch she want relationships
I never been the type to give a f**k i’m ignorant
I never seen a hoe that wouldn’t go that dont exist
I never see you countin’ dough but on the gram you rich
I never listen to these niggas they be talkin’ shit
I never been to europe I think I might cop a crib

(Verse)
I wanna take a trip to london cause I never been
You be rappin bout some other shit you never did (why you lyin)
You fell in love with her and you never hit
Shawty say you borin’ say you never lit
Oh oh, you get cut off
Why you lyin’ why you talkin’ you should shutup
I never hit it i just passed her to my brotha
I never put it in I got some top we never cut off
Im never pleased
If I hit in then she’ll never leave
She get on her knees, f**k a celebrity
She f**k for fame know I never give her change
I never stay shawty say she missin’ me
I think i’m too hot I need a cooler
Young nigga moved up, give me medula
I’m smokin moonrock, it make me moonwalk
She give me good top
I’m watching boondocks
Dont be too loud I can hear ya
I see sauce when I look into the mirror
I beat the pussy up I tell lil shawty square up
I’m livin’ galore my bitch yeah she look like Lira
(Hook)
She see i’m lit she tryna get with me
I used to dream about this shit and now im livin’ it
I put the D all in your bitch she want relationships
I never been the type to give a f**k i’m ignorant
I never seen a hoe that wouldn’t go that dont exist
I never see you countin’ dough but on the gram you rich
I never listen to these niggas they be talkin’ shit
I never been to europe I think I might cop a crib

Milli Major – Shut Down The Dance Lyrics (feat. Prez T & Paper Pabs)

[Bridge: Milli Major]
We shut down the dance
We shut down the dance
We shut down the dance
We shut down the dance

[Hook: Milli Major]
We shut down the dance
Yeah, you know my team
Bagged the promoters
Drinks on me
There’s queues outside
Like say the entry’s free
That’s it, I’m onstage next
Then assess the P

[Verse 1: President T]
Man wanna talk all greaze
Without the action, back in the day
I was a G, but it ain’t faction
Talking wicked, when it comes down to the crunch
I saw the reaction, said he was an MC, that was a myth
Babylon raided my drum, what did they find?
That was the piff
I said what did they find?
Suitcase packed with money and gold, nah
Suitcase packed with money and dreams
All that I know is money and fiends
There’s no place that President T won’t visit, is it?
If man wanna talk about guns or jail, I’ll have to quiz it

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Paper Pabs]
Shut down the dance, man’ll get lean
Like man are tryna cut down carbs
You ain’t never had no girls on stage
You ain’t never shut down Prague
You ain’t never caught no planes then got picked up
Then picked up mics
Bloodline fam be the campaign
Shutdown bars with the champagne life
I can shut down a rave on Skype
I can shut down a rave on Facetime
All of the raves are shutdown ramp
I don’t know what you heard on the grapevine
Ain’t no place on Earth that I can’t relax, fact
Can you put your hands in the air till your arms collapse?
Perhaps

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Milli Major]
Anywhere we go, we shut down the dance
London, Manny, Brum, France
Leeds, Leicester, Bristol, Prague
One two drinks makes anyone rough
Had too much, now I’m fully turnt up
But it’s all love so push your hands up
If the whip breaks down, you push your damn car
That’s the only time you push the damn car
Might just shell
Shut down the place then move your girl
Ain’t going my crib, stay at hotel
Ask the reception room 112
Yeah, yeah, just know I’ll be gone by the morning
I ain’t gonna stick around for the talking
Gotta hit it, and I ain’t calling
If you ain’t fam, you better keep walking

[Bridge] + [Hook]

Novelist – The Only One Lyrics

[Chorus]
I’m Novelist the only one
Pull up in my trackie on a cozy one
More time when you see me it’s a lonely one
If they pull up with me it’s a homie one
Heard so many stories only focused on
The one I live cause I can guarantee it’s not a phony one
Treat people the same like I don’t know no-one
God gets all the glory I don’t owe no-one

[Verse 1]
The name is N-o-v and I’m from south LDN
When I see the London boy up in the city
Then tell me when
Cause when I pull up grinning
Men and women all around get blessed
But anyone try and pull a stunt and try be silly
Will learn their lesson
Understand I’m sober not a joker got consciousness
I try to reason but some yutes got left in unconsciousness
But more or less
From a kid was shown don’t be like the rest
I’m with the best
There’s no contest
I’m so content
I keep it simple I’m not perfect but I sure don’t pretend
All of my youngers get direction but I’m not stopping them
Went through the fire tried to copy but it’s too hot for them
I say the truth that’s why the liars get mad, it’s not for them
I keep a pen and I keep a pad for the notes, not to blend
Circle tight, only when a homie got touched when I lost a friend
But it’s all good wake in the a.m. I comprehend
Another day another mission I’m focused on what’s ahead

[Chorus] [x2]
I’m Novelist the only one
Pull up in my trackie on a cozy one
More time when you see me it’s a lonely one
If they pull up with me it’s a homie one
Heard so many stories only focused on
The one I live cause I can guarantee it’s not a phony one
Treat people the same like I don’t know no-one
God gets all the glory I don’t owe no-one

Jackboy – Run My Check Up Lyrics (feat. Kodak Black)

[Hook: Jack Boy]
This shit ain’t just happen overnight
It took time for me to run my check up
Puttin’ in work, can’t cheat the grind
It took time for me to run my check up
Keep the 45 when I slide
Wanna see me down cause I ran my check up
Everybody sayin’ it’s my time
I’m in my prize, I’m bout to run my check up
Run my check up, I’mma run my check up
Run my check up, I’m bout to run my check up
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, ooooh

[Verse 1: Jack Boy]
Run the check up, I’m bout to overlap ya
Finessin’, had to overtax ya
Dress classic, but I’m totin’ ratchets
No license, still dippin’ through traffic
Ride with my youngins
At the red light, green light we dumpin’
Trap still jumpin’, licks still comin’
Had to make something outta nothing
In and outta cells, been through hell
I was 14, sittin’ in jail
I ain’t tell, kept my lips sealed like mail
Want beef? I give shells, I give [?]
Can’t get you, get your momma
Or get your father, cut him up like a barber
Rock on my hip, totin’ Sean Carter
Jumped in the game late, should’ve been a starter
When I get mad, I get trigger-happy
Move off impulse, lose by fetti
Blow the fetti
My do a show and drop four g’s, thirties on a Chevy
Or drop Larry, mouthpiece scary
Real rap, real life, no Tyler Perry
Stopped smokin’ weed, still on molly
Jackboy, he a jigga-holic
Pull up in that what you call it?
Two Glock shorty, clip hold 30
Try and cross me like you Curry
Put 30 in your jersey
I’m not servin’, bitch I’m lurkin’
Me and Bill in a suburban
Up the road, window pokin’
Schemin’, 7 in the mornin’
Bitch I’m on it, bitch I’m on it
I just booted on the monkey
Now you wanna be my homie?
Nah, I’m staright, I got this on me
Sniper!

[Hook: Jack Boy]
This shit ain’t just happen overnight
It took time for me to run my check up
Puttin’ in work, can’t cheat the grind
It took time for me to run my check up
Keep the 45 when I slide
Wanna see me down cause I ran my check up
Everybody sayin’ it’s my time
I’m in my prize, I’m bout to run my check up
Run my check up, I’mma run my check up
Run my check up, I’m bout to run my check up
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, ooooh

[Verse 2: Kodak Black]
I’mma run that check up crazy like I’m in the Olympics
It’s lil Kodak, I be snappin’ like I’m photogenic
I left the high broke, I came back with some money
Grind hard till’ everybody say that they your cousin
It ain’t happen overnight, a nigga was out here hustlin’
I remember when I was broke and I ain’t have nothin’
Me and Jackboy, we be thuggin’, we be roadrunnin’
If you lookin’ for me, you can catch me on the Ugly
Oh I just want some sucky-sucky, don’t want no lovey-dovey
On 1800, I hit a nigga for a whole onion
I’m a Haitian boy, got people love me way in London
I’m a Haitian boy, you know I’m runnin’ with them zombies
Like waste management, how niggas quick to go to dumpin’
How I pull up in that orange, look like a damn pumpkin
I remember when I ain’t have it now I f**kin’ got it
And the way I run that check up, you could call me Sonic

[Hook: Jack Boy]
This shit ain’t just happen overnight
It took time for me to run my check up
Puttin’ in work, can’t cheat the grind
It took time for me to run my check up
Keep the 45 when I slide
Wanna see me down cause I ran my check up
Everybody sayin’ it’s my time
I’m in my prize, I’m bout to run my check up
Run my check up, I’mma run my check up
Run my check up, I’m bout to run my check up
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, ooooh

Here Come The Mummies – Pull It Off Lyrics

[Verse]
What’s right is right
She will shine in the spotlight
Achieving a height no one would dare
She breaks with convention
A mother of invention
This is the night
She’s takin’ you there

[Chorus]
If anybody can she can pull it off
Without even trying she will turn you on
Using her magic she’s twisting the fabric
In-side out
If anybody can she can pull it off

[Verse]
What’s wrong is right
She gives it its own life
Paris, New York, London, LA
She brings it all back
A sensual attack
Whatever it is that girl’s got it made

[Chorus]
If anybody can she can pull it off
Without even trying she will turn you on
Using her magic she’s twisting the fabric
In-side out
If anybody can she can pull it off

[Chorus]
If anybody can she can pull it off
Without even trying she will turn you on
Using her magic she’s twisting the fabric
In-side out
If anybody can she can pull it off
If anybody can she can pull it off
If anybody can she can pull it off

Ken Nordine – What Time Is It? Lyrics

There was this guy who was a regular guy who lived a regular life
Got up 7:30 every morning
Had the same breakfast
Kissed the same wife goodbye every morning
Went to the same office
Came home [?] Monday through Friday
On Saturdays, he played with the children
Did handywork around the house
Sundays, he took the family out on the station wagon to the suburbs
And there, they looked at the houses and the trees, the billboards, the gasoline stations, and the railroad crossings
And his life might have gone on like this forever
Except one night, something strange happened to him
You see, he went to bed at 10:30
And some of his friends stayed up later
And one of them, closing up a place that closed at two in the morning, decided to call this “regular liver”
And said, “What time is it?”, on the telephone
When he woke up and he said, “Who’s this? Who’s this? It’s, it’s, it’s two o’clock in the morning, it’s no time to call. Bye!”
But the practical joker called every night, two o’clock in the morning
He did this for two weeks
Friend [?] said, “Who is it? Stop!”
Finally, after two weeks, the practical joker lost interest in the joke and did stop
Then came two o’clock and the phone didn’t ring
So he woke up
“Why isn’t the phone ringing?”
He discovered that the only way that he could go back to sleep was to say, “What time is it?”
Look at his watch and say, “two o’clock”
And he could sleep
He did this a couple of nights until he began to think:
“It’s two o’clock where I am
What time is it in New York? Or in Hollywood?
Or in London? Or Hong Kong? And Cairo?”
He didn’t know
So the next day, he went out and he bought himself some clocks
He got clocks from all over and he put them all over the walls
And the time was there
He knew what time it was everywhere that counted
And this made him feel comfortable
He became so interested in time that he got little egg timers and gave them away as presents
He read about time in, in books
Sidereal time: time way out in the universe
He knew what time it was on Arcturus and the Pleiades and the Milky Way
One night, though, at two o’clock in the morning, the light wouldn’t go on; the fuse had blown
But suddenly, he realized he knew what time it was without even looking
Not only in the important cities of this world, but in the entire universe
And naturally, began to brag a little the next day
He told people, “I know what time it is”
And they tested him and he did know
The Administration had changed at this particular time and they wanted to save money
So they got rid of all their astronomers, all their telescopes, their weights and measures
And they put this man in Washington in a little room
Where he sits to this day, simply saying:
“BEEP. The time now is…”

Smib – Gangland Lyrics (feat. Ray Fuego)

[Verse 1]
Ik zie ze gaan ten onder hoe’s
Kijk goed Fuego ligt eronder boos
Spend knaken maar het boemerang weer raar
Het komt back en ik doe the thang weer daar
In de heuvels is geen f**king grappen no
Ik had geen money in me broeken zakken bro
Maar check de cv ik had al die ho die ho’s
5 pokemons ik vang der 44
Ik zag dat je dat dacht, bitches in badpak
Nagels raar gelakt, bands wat als ik dat pak
Shooter voor die kat kat
7 op de wang wat, spend het als het back komt
Patta in je bek dom
Headcrack op de 8-0, mama weet ik ga uit
Mama weet ik blijf uit, papa weet ik eet ook
Focus op de focus, doe het voor de youthdem
Sta ik op die stage nee, shit is meteen eng
Zet meteen een stempel en ik zet een tag bitch
Deel van avenger? kleine jonge check dit
Streep door je checklist, lil shawty foreign
Noem der mama nature ik zorg dat het regent
Sip van die juice mane, fuego got the juice man
In je Daily Papers change me naam in Hussein
Ren door een bedrag, lens net als Bolt echt
En ik stop niet nee ik doe het voor me gangland

[Hook] x2
Handen op der bil als ze me tat
Betast zeker die mill als ik het get, echt
Jij heb wel die racks maar heb je juice?
Heb bijna allebei nu ben je froes, hoe?
Ik smoke als ik wil smoken van die shit
Als ik wil dan koop ik die dikke pit, kid
Je moet niet denken dat ik pit ben in me crib
Wil niet groeten al die hoeren op me pik, dick

[Verse 2]
Trap nogsteeds die bikey
Patta nogsteeds nike
Broek die is echt bos
Gat in me nike socks
Skeer nog veelste vaak
Chick.. dat ik haar staak?
Is nogsteeds de vraag
Twijfel hedendaags
Slick als Idje man
Rad vraag bokoesam
Bokoe snodder
Skurt skurt me naar de dam
Koud als nederland
Iedereen act frappant
Ik wil goud op al me tanden
Naar Curaçao vliegen ik mis me tantes
Draag me festival bandjes
Als ice kill voel me handen
Ik depay me kaulo ticket
Pull up naar London je kan me missen
Burn baby Burn all those pondjes
Sip gin met ijsklontjes mondjes
Zijn all up in me shit nu
Heb geen zin in je shit nu
Je bitch die lijkt op een shiatsu
Sushi chappende dat is wat ik doe
Of poenie klappende bel me voor die money up
Over stu shit, heb niks te zoeken op de block
Koop iets in zeg me nigger double up
Terwijl ik aan het socialisen ben in de club

[Hook] x2
Handen op der bil als ze me tat
Betast zeker die mill als ik het get, echt
Jij heb wel die racks maar heb je juice?
Heb bijna allebei nu ben je froes, hoe?
Ik smoke als ik wil smoken van die shit
Als ik wil dan koop ik die dikke pit, kid
Je moet niet denken dat ik pit ben in me crib
Wil niet groeten al die hoeren op me pik, dick

Tetes Raides – Parazite Lyrics

Parazite mon pas mon rat mon zite
Pas rasé plein de tics
Bardé d’incontinence
Par là-bas les v’là les antiparazites
Foutons l’camp au plus vite
Déclamons ô pitance

Allons voir à London
Si y a du poil à s’faire
D’la reine ou du gazon
Qui saura satisfaire
Sans vénalité aucune
L’appétit d’un para
Zite errant sous la lune
Jojo plie ta misère prends ton ballot
Je t’emmène à Melun
On ira voir passer les trains
Puisqu’il faut répéter
Qu’on est pas v’nu pour y rester
Jojo prends mon chéquier
Mes écussons et mon banquier

Parazite mon pas mon rat mon zite
Pas rasé plein de tics
Bardé d’incontinence
Par là-bas les v’là les antiparazites
Foutons l’camp au plus vite
Déclamons ô pitance

On s’est pris le béguin
D’une duchesse en vison
Qui cultive si bien
L’amour et le biffeton
Elle a l’épiderme cossu
Le champignon propice
On s’y colle dessus
Jojo fume du cigare dans une auto
Sur l’trottoir de Berlin
Cueille les fruits de sa catin
On vit que pour rêver
D’une aventure à bon marché
Quand jojo va braquer
Il prend mon costard et mes papiers
S’il y avait moins de parazites
Y aurait-il moins de flics
S’il y avait moins d’agents
Y aurait-il moins de truands
Ah cette question me brûle les plumes
T’en fais pas ça r’poussera
Me répondit la lune
Jojo ne m’a laissé que quelques os
Me v’là seul à Melun
Où je regarde passer les trains
Qu’à vouloir m’y frotter
J’ai fait bien plus que d’y goûter
Et c’est comme ça que j’me suis r’trouvé…

Nap nip nap…

Das Lumpenpack – Silvester Lyrics

Durch die Fenster im Abteil, sehen alle Städte gleich aus,
man sieht wesentlich mehr Autos, als es draußen Menschen gibt,
Mein Ipod Shuffle spielt zum dritten mal dasselbe Lied,
das Pärchen neben mir im Vierer – ist so ekelhaft verliebt.
Ich blättere im Buch, kann mich nicht konzentrier’n,
les‘ dieselbe Seite – sicher schon zum dritten Mal.
Der Kaffee schmeckt nach Staub, das Brötchen schmeckt nach Staub,
selbst das Beck‘s Bier schmeckt nach Staub – und ist obendrein noch schal.

Doch hey bald ist Silvester, dann ist ein neues Jahr,
dann wird alles viel, viel besser, als das alte bis jetzt war.
Mir schmeckt gar kein Fondue, mir schmeckt auch kein Raclette,
Ich hasse wirklich Bleigießen und kotze meist von Sekt,
Es ist grad erst kurz vor sieben, kann die Zeit jetzt mal vergeh’n.
Verdammt es ist Silvester, ich will doch nur Raketen seh’n!

Durch die Fenster im Abteil, seh’n nunmal alle Städte gleich aus,
Ganz egal ob London, oder Paderborn
Mein Ipod Shuffle spielt zum zehnten mal dasselbe Lied,
das Pärchen neben mir im Vierer –
hat grad ein Kind gekriegt
Und ich blättere im Buch, kann mich nicht konzentrier’n,
les‘ dieselbe Seite – sicher schon zum zwölften Mal.
Der Kaffee schmeckt nach Pisse, das Brötchen schmeckt nach Pisse,
selbst das Beck‘s Bier schmeckt nach Pisse –
wobei das ist ja normal

Doch hey bald ist Silvester, dann ist ein neues Jahr,
dann wird alles viel, viel besser, als das alte bis jetzt war.
Mir schmeckt gar kein Fondue, mir schmeckt auch kein Raclette,
Ich hasse wirklich Bleigießen und kotze meist von Sekt,
Und es läuft immer Dinner for one kann der den Tigerkopf nicht seh’n.
Verdammt es ist Silvester,ich will doch nur Raketen seh’n!

Durch die Fenster im Abteil, seh’n nunmal alle Menschen gleich aus,
Wie auf einer VHS-Kassette, die man grade spult
Mein Ipod Shuffle gab
grade eben seinen Geist auf
Leon ist jetzt sieben – und wird dies’s Jahr eingeschult
Und ich blättere im Buch, kann mich nicht konzentrier’n,
Aber hey – scheißegal, weil ich’s längst auswendig kann
Der Kaffee schmeckt mir gut, das Brötchen schmeckt mir gut,
das Beck‘s Bier schmeckt mir gut –
man gewöhnt sich halt daran

Und ja bald ist Silvester, dann ist ein neues Jahr,
dann wird alles viel, viel besser, als das alte bis jetzt war.
Und jetzt ist endlich null Uhr – und alle zähl’n von zehn
Denn verdammt jetzt ist Silvester, jetzt darf ich Raketen seh’n!

Soll es das gewesen sein? Ein lauter Knall, ein Blitz,
irgendjemand wirft Konfetti, Sekt wird rumgespritzt,
Man liegt sich in den Armen, man ruft frohes neues Jahr,
dabei ist gar nichts anders, als es grade eben war:
Da draußen ist die Stadt, hier drinnen ist der Zug,
Neben mir sitzt Leon und das Pärchen und das Buch
Und dazu der IPod Shuffle und das Brötchen, der Kaffee,
dieses gottverdammte Beck‘s Bier – Hier im ICE!

Doch hey bald ist Silvester und dann ist ein neues Jahr
und dann wird alles viel, viel besser, als das alte bis jetzt war.
Diesen alten Traum hab ich längst schon aufgegeb’n,
doch ich freu mich auf Silvester, dann darf ich Raketen seh‘n!

[Stophe 1]
Ich flieg’ nach Bali, kauf’ mir belvedere (belvedere)
Sie trinkt allein die ganze Flasche leer (Flasche leer)
Und sie tanzt auf dem Tisch (ja)
Ganz alleine für mich (ja)
Ich weiß, was sie will (ja)
Aber ich will es nicht (no no no)

[Chorus]
Wohoa Cosmopolit (was? was?)
London, Tokyo, Moskau bis Paris (wo? wo?)
Wohoa Cosmopolit (wann? ja wann?)
Hongkong, Oslo, Warschau bis Madrid

[Stophe 2]
Sonnenbrille runter, baby, Jetlag-Gesicht
Lichtschutzfaktor 100, das ist Jetset-Idee[?]
Ich muss nicht mal zum Security-Check
Als wäre ich ein scheiß Präsident
Ich hab’ Leute, die die Haare für mich richten (ha)
24/7 und geschlafen wird in Schichten
Ich sitze im beheizten Jacuzzi
In der Schweiz mit ner juicy[?]
Wir verheizen den Dubi
Oh shit, wie sie mich reizt mit ihr’m booty (wow)
Ich bin ein Cosmopolit wie Du siehst
Jeder Trip exklusiv (oida sheesh)
Das hab’ ich mir selber verdient
Ich hab’ auf meinem Weg niemals nach unten geschielt – Musik!

[Interlude]

[Chorus]
Wohoa Cosmopolit
London, Tokyo, Moskau bis Paris
Wohoa Cosmopolit

Wohoa Cosmopolit (was? was?)

Wohoa Cosmopolit (wann? ja wann?)

[Verse 1: Chip]
Man don’t know about Chippy though
From North, yeah, I grew up on the Risky Roadz
Bun all the iceberg history though
Dem man’s history’s a mystery though
Man get lost and try send shots
Nah fam, miss me with your miss me flows
Diss me? No, that’s risky, bro
Round here there’s no frisky flows
Yeah, I pepper anytime, pepper anyone
Pepper, what’s your name? Pepper, mi no care (dead!)
You man forgot who’s colder
That’s why I’m back now and everybody showed up
And still couldn’t give a rocks if you’re older
I’ll take you, your gyal and over
Fake MCs wanna diss me, I hate them
Hungry, trust me, I also hate them

[Verse 2: Swiss]
I’m like test SL, that’s a no-no, no-no
We set the blueprint though, that’s oh no
Been doing this since 2-0-0-0
I’m feeling myself, no homo
And I’m a stick like the man on the polo
Girls go down on your boy like yo-yo
No strings attached, I’m like YOLO
And I still snap on the track, no photo
Snap, if you boys get me vexed
I’ll snap, I might just break your back
Like snap, I might just break a neck
Like snap, I’m like snap, snap, snap
G, stop acting a fool
I’ve been had platinum plaques on the wall
Brand new fresh Air Max on a walk
And I’m in the hood like tags on the wall

Why do these man kiss arse?
I’m in the garden watering plants

I’m chilling, billing a big spliff in France
I don’t need no introduction
I’m better than all these guys you give suction
Anybody disagrees? f**k them
I’m just smoking my trees and hustling
Trust me, I’m on this reckless ting
And I will be until my necklace blings
Holla at your nigga Black The Ripper
Everyone knows I rep this ting
Smoke my weed in front of police
You know me, I disrespect the ting
See me in my Dank of England tee
One joint will lick off your headtop clean

[Verse 4: Flowdan]
I’m the farrda but never been gassed up
I lean off any riddim I squeeze on
From day one, I’ve been the wickedest ting
Dem man there can’t prove me wrong
Man light up a verse, man write up a song
I get mad and start put shots first in a song
I learnt from the dons of the 90s, so they couldn’t try me
I put them in a hearse on a song
Yeah, and now I’m an original don
In grime, E3’s where the originals are from
When war a get wicked, hit them for six like cricket

[Verse 5: Rocks Foe]
Foe
Send shots on the sly, tell a man any time of the day
Cut a man short with a clip of the bar then I line up the fade
Don’t raise up your tone, don’t stretch on your dynamic range
GOD with the flow, man know when I’m live in the place
Live in my space, in my zone
Live in your face, in your dome
You lie in, I’m awake from the go
You lying in the main, it’s a show
Three lies, I’m taking her home
Crack and go, should come back to back with the Foe
Make a man know that I don’t play
Catch a rapper lacking then I go straight
Make a man run out, best roll safe

[Verse 6: Durrty Goodz]
DG was born in [?]
With marvellous bars and fatherless flows
My 16s are hard as elbows
I’m Haagen-Daaz cold, who are you? What are those?
Don’t mek me pull it, bullet
I’ll give a man new shell toes
I’m as rude as Gullit, bullet
For them man what sell their souls
It’s clapped ’em, clapped ’em to Clapham
Make it clap like I’m a Busta anthem, clap
Clap for them, they can’t clap to me rapping
Round of applause cuh this is a wrap
Wrap them up like they’ve all got it twisted
No, I won’t send, I will do the business
I’ll take out your top 10 listed
And circle your ends like Chinese whispers

[Hook: Durrty Goodz]
Oh, what a grimy scene
Oh, what a grimy scene

Oh, what a grimy scene

Douglas Dare – London’s Rose Lyrics

What’s above these walls
Empty land and empty Calls
Echos numb through these halls
The lying back can feel it all
Well it’s quiet down here x3
Down here

Entire world under the street
Soiled air you can not breathe
Lines and lines of shoe-less feet
One-hundred beds under one sheet
Well it’s hard down here x3
Down here

Mmmmmh
Mmmmmh
Mmmmmh
Mmmmmh

White mosaic haired rows
With sign posts overgrown
Destination unknown
Where’s London’s rose, where’s London’s rose?
We’re alive down here x3
Down here

Take us back up to the tall
Take us back up
Take us back up to the tall
Take us back up
Take us back up to the top
Take us back up
Take us back up to the top
Take us back up

YBN Nahmir – Talkin Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
Ayy, ayy, ayy
Grrah

[Verse]
Came in this bitch with my young nigga stuntin’
You play with the gang and the Glock gon get busted
I went off to London, he came back with somethin’
I’m making that call and my young niggas comin’
Facts, I was just stuffing them birds in their lack
Tell my young brothers hit the blunt and relax
I might get the trip with young peace in the back
I’m counting these fifties, put up in a stack, ayy
‘Member when I had shit, now a lil’ nigga got rich
‘Member seeing bro trapping, now we living lavish
Tried to run, he got shot in the back
Still mad, I had to ghost ’em with Mack
Caught ’em slipping, got em down in their packs
I’ma just stack it and go get the cash, ayy
Big 44
Running round town with like four hoes
Niggas hate ’cause my wrist froze
“Your brother fake,” he not me though
Boy approach me, then I open that bag
‘Cause if we need it, then we takin’ yo’ bread
Gotta watch when we talking to Feds
The police don’t play ’cause they know what I’m with, bitch!
Used to be run’ ’round with sticks, ayy
I might just be fucking your bitch
Bitch, I’m the kind of my click
They always take me on they hits
These new niggas gon’ act like they on som’thing
They ain’t on nothing, they know I, I keep my gun
I beef in the trap, with no plaque, G’s in the back
On time to sit now, with no L’s, but keys to the pad
I’m really with that, a nigga playin’, I’m getting no wet
When they get sent, these niggas tough, until they get smacked
Come to the door, sell a phone, they sent his ass home
I go to the hound, I’m untouched, these niggas be hoes
I’m wondering though, why they got artillery for
Bitch leave me alone, it ain’t no fame from me in them songs
Bitch know how to make money fast, ’cause we done seen the top
Niggas think they on my ass, man tell them niggas stop it
Call my bitch a Fendi bag, because she really popping
Now I turn up, throw some money every time a nigga bring the CD out
Fifty rounds, with Lil lizzie, yeah
Selling guns at my mama’s house
If they slide then let ’em slide I ain’t tryna see what they talkin’ ’bout
Fifty rounds, with Lil lizzie, yeah
Selling guns at my mama’s house
If they slide then let ’em slide
I ain’t tryna see what they talkin’ ’bout
(They talkin’ ’bout)

David Keenan – Unholy Ghosts Lyrics

I was gifted a book by somebody who loved me
About a man who got even with God
Sat in hyperactive London’s cold Central Station
The city began sleeping like a dog

Then a tramp with one eye placed his hand on my thigh
I said, “Hold it. Pick a window. You’re leaving.”
“Oh, do forgive me,” he sighed
“I was a fan in my prime.”
He must’ve thought I was somebody else

Here’s to the fathers of the lost sons and the unholy ghosts
It’s the ones that seem destined to get left behind
Interest me the most

On a street you’ve never heard of there’s a wooden piano
On its last legs in a last chance saloon
It is manned by a drunkard who is dripping with poetry
Sitting stupefied, nailed to the stool
The man catches my gaze then produces this page
From his waistcoat with a slip disk smile

“Look boy, here is my last correspondence with Christ.”
I tried to read it, but my glasses were filthy

Here’s to the fathers of the lost sons and the unholy ghosts
It’s the ones who seem destined to get left behind
Interest me the most
I am the prodigal son, resting his head on the drum
That was carried through the welcoming parade
And I’d give all I have
Sure, I’d give all I have
Strip me bare, let me wash in the rains

Past the government housing, right off Donaldson road
Open collars and open hearts
They swap anorexic lyrics for pyrotechnic rhymes
As car lights knife their way through the dark
Then this feeling persists
We as people exist in a state of anticipation

You know it comes at a cost
Or so the great unwashed have informed me
And I tend to believe them these days

Here’s to the fathers of the lost sons and the unholy ghosts
It’s the ones that seem destined to get left behind
Interest me the most
I am the prodigal son, resting his head on the drum
That was carried through the welcoming parade
And I’d give all I have
I would give all I have
Strip me bare, let me wash in the rains

Strip me bare, let me wash in the rains
Or something freeing like that anyway

I was gifted a book by somebody who loved me
About a man who got even with God

Prodigy – Stronger Lyrics

[Chorus: Nina Simone & Prodigy]
Strong enough to take the pain (Uh-huh)
Inflicted again (And again and again and again) and again
What do they call me? (Know my name, bitch)
My name is Str-Strong (Uh-huh)
Strong (Yeah, ayo)

[Verse 1]
The moonlight shines on the New York skyline
Midtown is lit up, the city is mine
As I drive across Queensbridge, I see it clearly
From my P.O.V. (What do they), this is fact not theory
Yeah, that rapper got money
But that rapper can’t walk through this concrete jungle ’cause he doin’ it wrong
New York belongs to Don P
You could have the rest of the world, I’m good (Strong) with these streets
Skyscrapers and housin’ buildings
I know about London but I prefer Brooklyn
I know about Marseilles but I prefer Queens
And while you hire cops (What do they), I prefer my team
I got a powerful army, it’s no need for a gun
You want hardcore rap? You f**kin with the right one
This is maximum strength, there’s no need for drugs
You want reality rap, homie, you got the right one
I’m

[Chorus: Nina Simone & Prodigy]
Strong enough to take the pain
Inflicted again and again
What do they call me?
My name is Str-Strong, (You know what?) Strong

[Verse 2]
Maybe once every tangerine moon I’ll be in the mood to paint the town red with your corpuscles
And plasma, some violent art
These thoughts in the corners (What do they) of my mind are dark
But then the Times Square lights, they switch my whole attitude
Reminds me of billions, that loot
I must persist, I must pursue
The rest of my success (Strong), I am not through
They tried to put my run to an end
But as sure as the point on the state buildin’
I stand tall, wipe the dirt off my clothes when I fall down (What do they), I’m way too strong
This is my town, my subways and sidewalks
I done ran through these gutters like a tunnel rat, pah’
Waist deep, inside of the shit
In the midst of the action where people get hit, look

[Chorus: Nina Simone]
Strong enough to take the pain
Inflicted again and again
What do they call me?
My name is Str-Strong, Strong

[Prodigy]
Yeah
You ain’t never been touched means you don’t participate
Within the f**kery, you stay comfortably distant, from pain infliction
Meanwhile I’m (What do they) flirtin’ with Death
She put her lipstick on the collar of my shirt, next to my jugular
I ain’t tryin’ to keep her, I just wanna f**k her
When I pass through I’m too committed to life
She a bitch but I love her refuse to (Strong) part from her
I’m destiny’s child, I survived it all
The most high got a special plan just for me
My table is set,with cake for days
I’m a lil’ bit late but (What do they) it’s okay
My future’s so bright that I gotta wear shades
I follow in the footsteps of LL Cool J
50 and P. Diddy, my relentless drive
To thrive and prosper, made (Strong) me

[Chorus: Nina Simone]
Strong enough to take the pain
Inflicted again, and again
What do they call me?
My name, is Str-Strong, Strong
What do they
Strong

Digdat – Stainless Steel Lyrics (feat. Tee Grizzley)

[Intro: Tee Grizzley & DigDat]
M1OnTheBeat
New Lambo, nizzy
Bring the clip back, empty
My Rambo went rusty
How can that steel be stainless?
I drop a four on my Chevy
Ice just make a bitch go dizzy
These f**kboys chasin’ clout
How them boys there still not famous?

[Verse 1: DigDat]
Run man out of their Air Max
S do it bareback, we don’t use gloves
Still puttin’ semi’s in auto’s
Only if I squeeze it, I press that clutch
My friends got life for a body
And they ain’t sorry, free up my brothers
I bought too much Balmain
But feel like I need more colours
Step in a yard with Dior runners
I just want top, don’t need those rubbers
I hate when they leave makeup
Fix up, but I still let her kiss on me neck
Put twenty bags in my mattress
Can’t let any bitch just sit on this bed
That’s four-fifty on my tee
Just cost me more than a half of B
My Rambo went rusty
How can that steel be stainless?
These f**kboys chasin’ clout
How them boys there still not famous?
Where was they when I was prayin’ for parole?
Had to file the appeal with papers
And the devil tried take away my soul
So I step in the field with shavers
I ain’t signing a deal for change, that’s shameless
Get it all back from these razors
I got all this pain, take gas from my throat
How I cope when I fight these demons
Lost all my bros for a long time
Still don’t know when they’re gonna see freedom
And my heart’s scarred, ain’t healin’
Jakes on my back, like f**k how I’m feelin’
Lost love but I never lost hope in dreamin’
We was in the streets all evenin’
Got a big back ting doin’ up Snaps
Like, come to the crib, stop teasin’

[Verse 2: Tee Grizzley]
I’m tryna fly out to London
Heard the money was abundant
Custom Louis V suit
You only gon’ know if you look at the buttons
You niggas users
I respect the dealin’ nigga, never the customer
If it weren’t for them, the bag prolly wouldn’t got-got
I take care of my smugglers
If I stack these hunnids, it’ll look just like Blue Towers
Shoutout to DigDat
We don’t respond to opps
So when niggas die, they wonder who did that
Brand new G63, it’s complicated
Got a dollar on the Benz app
Real big nigga, no six pack
Just big racks, big guns, no kick back
No red beam, red dot on the scope
I hit up a bitch from a distance
Light skin thot, thick and pretty
f**k her then I forgot she existed
Tryna take over the charts
It can’t be hard, we took over the trenches
If you a rook, don’t worry ’bout what the king doin’ nigga
Play your position
Big bag, I’ma f**k it up
Bad bitch said she gon’ f**k it up
In the club havin’ fun but we’ll f**k it up
Slap niggas suited out, them niggas cuttin’ up
They ain’t gon’ play with us, niggas ain’t dumb enough
Treadmill talk nigga, watch how I run it up
Heard big dawg put you and you f**ked it up
Heard he ain’t kill you, it puzzled us
New Lambo, nizzy
Bring the clip back, empty
I drop a four on my Chevy
Ice just make a bitch go dizzy
I’m only scared of the one in the mirror
Hoes that I cut off, niggas Amiri
Real big dawg, no rappin’, I’m serious
AR go off, look at boy on his period, bow
