Thousands of Russians across 200 cities spanning from Moscow to Siberia braved sub-zero temperatures and police brutality during pro-democracy protests in the country on Saturday.

The demonstrations came in response to the attempted assassination and subsequent arrest of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, which sparked ire among Russian citizens.

Navalny was poisoned in August last year and transferred to Germany for treatment, where doctors confirmed that the chemical agent Novichok was used. Navalny then helped investigate his own assassination together with Bellingcat, a news outlet. He famously phoned an FSB agent involved and tricked him into a confession.

The opposition leader returned to Russia on Jan. 17, where he was immediately arrested. His team published another investigation two days later, which purportedly shows President Vladimir Putin’s palace on the Black Sea. The investigation came alongside calls from Navalny to protest on Jan. 23, which were resoundingly heeded.

There have been over 3,000 arrests across the country, including of 16 reporters, according to protest-tracking website OVD-Info, the most in the last four years. It’s not known how many people across the country participated, but videos and images show what appears to be tens of thousands of people in the streets.

Lots and lots of people on sidewalks of Tverskaya, leading to Pushkinskaya square and the Kremlin. This must be the biggest anti-Putin rally in years. People are enraged.

But it didn’t take long for police to use force during the protests, which had previously been deemed illegal.

One video shows a woman getting kicked in the stomach. According to the news outlet Mediazona, the woman had a concussion and was taken to the hospital.

The US Embassy in Russia tweeted in support of the protests, and the Russian Ministry of Foreign affairs later labeled the tweet “hypocrisy.”

Rebecca Ross
@USEmbRuPress

We're watching reports of protests in 38 Russian cities, arrests of 350+ peaceful protesters and journalists. The U.S. supports the right of all people to peaceful protest, freedom of expression. Steps being taken by Russian authorities are suppressing those rights.

The striking photos and videos largely show protesters banding together against the police, sometimes appealing to their conscience.

Undaunted by the police response and governmental condemnation, Navalny’s organization called for more protests next week.

“This was the first step on the road to victory,” the Anti-Corruption Foundation tweeted. “See you again in a week.”

Bobby Sessions – Made A Way Lyrics (feat. Lecrae)

[Intro]
Young legend
Hold up

[Verse 1]
Made it out the street (Street), made it out of beef (Beef)
Made it from the bottom, now we strive to reach the peak (Yeah)
Made it out the hood (Yeah), niggas sellin’ drugs
Even when we doin’ bad, say we doin’ good (Yeah)
Rocked a Boosie fade (Yeah), homie had a shag (Yeah)
Lotta mama’s boys, not too many had a dad (Nah)
I was blessed with mine (Yup), he was on the grind (Yup)
Workin’ ten to twelve hours tryna make a dime (Let’s go)
Back in Pleasant Grove, went to school at Edna Rowe (Edna Rowe)
Ridin’ bike too late at night, you gotta make it home (Make it home)
No more time to play (Nah), clean the house today (Yeah)
Sunday service way before somebody heard of ‘Ye (Facts)
Church be gettin’ out, Cowboy game, no missin’ out (No doubt)
I’ll grab that belt if you forget to thaw that chicken out (Yeah)
The homie playin’ Pokémon, he a killer now (Damn)
My parents postal workers, learned to take a different route

[Chorus]
And we made a way (Way), yeah, we made a way (We made it)
Gotta go through obstacles when they in the way (Yeah)
Still we made a way (Yeah), still we made a way (We made it)
Don’t be sweatin’ ’bout that blessin’, boy, that’s on the way (Way)
And we made a way (Yeah), yeah, we made a way (We made it)
Gotta go through obstacles when they in the way (Yeah)
Still we made a way (Way), still we made a way (We made it)
Don’t be sweatin’ ’bout that blessin’, hold up—

[Verse 2]
Started from the dirt (Dirt), Dallas was the turf (Turf)
Find the biggest tee and keep the sticker on the shirt (Facts)
Movin’ to the ‘burbs (‘Burbs), I ain’t say a word (Word?)
Couple neighbors that was hatin’, gettin’ on my nerves (f*ck ’em)
Baddie licked me up (Yup), never give a f*ck (Never)
Taste it, baby, I had whiskey in my sippy-cup (Uh)
Spirit lift me up (Yeah), ain’t no givin’ up (Never)
Hit the church Sunday mornin’, Pastor Rickie Rush
IBOC, switched that fade to high top
After service we would get some breakfast from the IHOP
Reggie pa would hot box, tickets for that sky box
Ask me, “Why are you blessed?”, my response is, “Why not?”
All the gold in my watch, Polo horse in my sock
People I love that got shot, artist on label got dropped
You can’t be livin’ ungrateful, people would kill for my spot
Street scar all the faces for ghetto boys on my block, on my block

[Chorus]
And we made a way (Way), yeah, we made a way (We made it)
Gotta go through obstacles when they in the way (Yeah)
Still we made a way (Yeah), still we made a way (We made it)
Don’t be sweatin’ ’bout that blessin’, boy, that’s on the way (Way)
And we made a way (Yeah), yeah, we made a way (We made it)
Gotta go through obstacles when they in the way (Yeah)
Still we made a way (Way), still we made a way (We made it)
Don’t be sweatin’ ’bout that blessin’, hold up—

Eugene Scream – I Can’t Feel This Summer Lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I saw you for the first time
Couldn’t understand what happened
But I felt that it would last forever
You were wearing a sunlight
And in your magnificent eyes
I saw all the beauty of the world

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s amazing how one moment divides life
How your smile melts my heart
How warm the wave can be (You feel the same)
Tomorrow is a day that we’ll not forget and where we’ll stay

[Chorus]
I can’t feel this summer
But this magic in the air…
What awaits tomorrow I don’t care
Since you love me I feel spring inside of me
This is love that makes us free

[Verse 2]
(Come on! Let’s go)
Where the sound of the surf is
Where the red light dims and falls asleep
On the tips of your eyelashes
While we lay on the coast
You see in my sight is something
That accelerates your heartbeat

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s amazing how thoughts can dissolve in sea
How warm the waves can be
When we kiss on the beach. (Tenderly)
Your breath stops into the bliss
Moments merge with sunset rays and breeze

[Chorus]
I can’t feel this summer
But this magic in the air…
What awaits tomorrow I don’t care
Since you love me I feel spring inside of me
This is love that makes us free

[Verse 3]
This evening never end for us on the sand
I’m ready to stay in embrace of your fragile hands

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s amazing how the coolness of your skin
Lights a flame inside of me
Like when the sun touches the sea
When we are drowning in love
It seems like tomorrow never comes

[Chorus]
I can’t feel this summer
But this magic in the air…
What awaits tomorrow I don’t care

Jham – Vegas Nights Lyrics

[Intro: DJ Oohie Mack]
How’s everybody doing tonight?
Welcome to sin city Las Vegas y’all
I’m here to introduce you to one of our newest acts
He may look like a pretty boy, but he’s got a ruthless past
So one time for the one time
And two times for those two dimes sitting in the front row
(Holla at ya boy)
Give it up for the one and only
Always got a bitch, so he’s never lonely
J Ham y’all

[Verse 1: J Ham]
Yeah
Never the runner up
Even in the worst case
Ain’t been nothing but first place
Since my birth date
Hit her on the first date
Then watch first take
f*cking with me, you R-I-P like your shirt say
I’m up in L-V
Ain’t shit that you can tell me
Your bitch asking for selfies
Keep it rolling just like Kelly
Is she loyal? ain’t no telling
Nah, ain’t no telling
She throw it back, imma catch that like I’m Kelce
(I’m going for six)
Championship fights at the octagon
After party getting faded at the hakkasan
Stacking chips, I gotta eat just like it’s Ramadan
8 shorties in the limo got me feeling like the octomom

Throwing ones watching all these strippers rake it up
Make it back in chips like we never gave it up
She lost a bet, but she said that she can make it up
If niggas bout to fight
I ain’t gon’ be the one to break it up
(Why?)
I’m tryna keep the glizzy tucked
It’s destiny, this shit ain’t luck
OG Kush all in my blunt
(Sticky Icky)
So lit up at that pool these hoes done lost they tops
Don’t ever lose my cool, especially round the opps
Driving down 612 my top is finna drop
Sipping on the brew, 8 ball all in my sock

[Bridge: J Ham]
I don’t do that shit
It’s for the crew and the thotties
Super lit
Got the juice and the molly
Stupid bitch
Talking loose, we’ll catch a body
Uber to the strip
Or we cruise in the rari
In the rari
These Vegas Nights is crazy
Every night is a party (Aye)

[Outro: J Ham]
Every night is a party (Aye)
Every night is a party (Aye, Aye)
Every night is a party (Aye, Aye)
Vegas nights

Jordan Lafaver – Ken Doll Lyrics

You’ve been social distancing me way before they told you to
Love to have that power over me, baby I know you do
Make you feel so sexy to break my heart
I’m just the hero of your story babe, tear me apart

You switch positions like a gymnast
Make me beg beg for forgiveness, yeah
On your hit list
Make me think that you missed this

But you cold ain’t you
Truthfully I don’t even blame you, yeah yeah yeah
You’re so damn beautiful I gotta thank god just for making you

Keep me on your shelf, better put me in your pocket
And take me where you need me, I won’t ask you to stop it, no
Just made of plastic, our love is magic
Play with me until you’re done, my toy box is a casket

You’ve been wearing masks around me way before they said you should
All those hurtful things you said you’d do, I never thought you would
Grieving the loss of the person you were
Should have known you gassed me up just to watch me burn

You switch perspectives like a cameraman
Stay focused, then you pan away
An avalanche, won’t even try to run away
Evil ain’t you, truthfully I don’t even blame you, yeah yeah yeah
That’s how they made you, I can’t replace you

Keep me on your shelf, better put me in your pocket
And take me where you need me, I won’t ask you to stop it, no
Just made of plastic, our love is magic
Play with me until you’re done, my toy box is a casket

Deny Setiyadi – Ballerina Lyrics

Practise every sundown
Cooped up in the basement
One hand at the barre
And the other on her waist and, mhm
Take a breath and demi plié
Lose herself and disappear, yeah

Some people were born to mend the broken
To fight in battles, to preach devotion
Some other they swim against the stream
Scared and unsure to follow their dreams but

She just wants to dance her heart out
With no hesitation, without any doubts
Dance a songless dance and her hands in the air
She’s making her way to be a ballerina
She’s not afraid to be hurt
With her prosthesis
She’s trying to spin around
Dance a soulful dance and say a little prayer
Cause life’s a bit harder for a ballerina

Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh… Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh…
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh… Oh…

Golden coloured tutu and
Worn out ballet shoes
She’s been there all alone
Since she just started out
Look around and take a chance, yeah
Dance like she won’t dance again, yeah

Some people were born to cure diseases
To guide believers, to strive for freedom
Some other they swim against the stream
Scared and unsure to follow their dreams but

She just wants to dance her heart out
With no hesitation, without any doubts
Dance a songless dance and her hands in the air

She’s making her way to be a ballerina
She’s not afraid to be hurt
With her prosthesis
She’s trying to spin around
Dance a soulful dance and say a little prayer
Cause life’s a bit harder for a ballerina

Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh… Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh…
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oooh… Oh…

Some people were born to mend the broken
To fight in battles, to cure diseases
To preach devotion, to guide believers
To be believers, and disbelievers
They strive for freedom, to dance… dance… dance… oh!

She just wants to dance her heart out
With no hesitation, without any doubts
Dance a songless dance and her hands in the air
She’s making her way to be a ballerina
She’s not afraid to be hurt
With her prosthesis
She’s trying to spin around
Dance a soulful dance and say a little prayer
Cause life’s a bit harder for a ballerina

She just wants to dance her heart out
With no hesitation, without any doubts
Dance a songless dance and her hands in the air
She’s making her way to be a ballerina
She’s not afraid to be hurt
With her prosthesis
She’s trying to spin around
Dance a soulful dance and say a little prayer
Cause life’s a bit harder for a ballerina

She’s just a ballerina
Just a ballerina

Sad Night Dynamite – Mountain Jack Lyrics

Oh change me I’ll let you know
Complaining its time to go
Real heartstrings won’t stretch too far
Still fading you superstar

Sun is coming down on jackals back
Hold your head high on twisted track
Don’t cry near me oh
Don’t cry near me oh oh
Daddy’s come home and you don’t know why
Calling from homes a waste of time
Don’t cry near me oh
Don’t cry near me oh oh

Radio spills electro
Catching the breeze and let go
Falling on ears they don’t know
Dressed like a punk they must be
Teenagers no they scare me
Painting their face we don’t see
All through thе air the heat was therе

Lifting the car up off the square just like a flare
Lit up the night
Square off the moon was bright
A satellite now streaming past a flying kite

Sun is coming down on jackals back
Hold your head high on twisted track
Don’t cry near me oh
Don’t cry near me oh oh

Oh change me I’ll let you know
Complaining its time to go
Real heartstrings won’t stretch too far
Still fading you superstar
Oh change me I’ll let you know
Complaining its time to go
Real heartstrings won’t stretch too far
Still fading you superstar

Olias – Tell Me You Hate Me? Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Keep on whispering and gossiping like you know my life
Fake friends come and go, try leave imprints on you like a knife
Talking bout’ this one song
Obsessed, when will you get a life?
Faking Smiles is not the only f*cking song I can write

Feeling Over Anxious, everybody here knows my name
Putting on my headphones, hiding to ignore all the pain
Feeling overwhelmed, the negativity is so vain
This room, boring people. Everything in here is so plain

[Verse 2]
Competition I am not
Pick your poison, let it rot

Do you hate me, Do you not?
Match the line up to the dot

Watching my every move, obsessed when will you get a life
Judgey eyerolls, ugly comments, stay so far from the knife

[Chorus]
Tell me, do you hate me?
Never phase me, never praise me
X3

Do you hate me
X3

D-D-Do you hate me

[Bridge]
Stupid people, believe what they wanna see
Stupid people, believe believe

Stupid people, believe what they wanna see
Stupid people, tell me you hate me

Baillie & The Boys – She Deserves You Lyrics

You say she deserves you more than me
You say she’s the kind of woman
I could never be

‘Cause she can make you feel the way
I did in my younger days
When our love was new,
Well, she don’t know you like I do

[CHORUS]
And if she wants a man
Who’ll take the ring off of his hand
And then turn around and say that he’ll be true
Then she deserves you

You promise her the moon and she believes

She’s innocent and trusting
Just like I used to be

You say that when you hold her
You forget that you’ve grown older
And that might be true
But she don’t know you like I do

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Remember when you tell her
That you’ll stay with her forever
There was a time you said those words to me

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[Verse 1]
It’s 2:35 in the morning and I’m thinking ’bout you
All the things that we should and maybe shouldn’t do
I don’t know if I’m wrong for saying this, but I want you
Don’t wanna make a move too soon
Don’t wanna ruin where this could go

[Pre-Chorus]
I wanna think about it, wanna think about it
Wanna see what this could be
Wanna take it there but I’m kinda scared
‘Cause I don’t know if we’re ready
So when I think about it
Don’t wanna waste no more time, wanna be about it, hey

[Intro]
Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]
Strangers wilderness inside
The heart trips from hot to cold
You think he can make up its mind
But suddenly it’s always no
Suddenly it’s always no

[Chorus]
And if I could reach the Northern lights
Maybe then I’d understand it all
Sometimes I try so hard to find
When all I want to do is fall
Into the night
Into your arms, surrender
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 2]
Delay is on the district line
Lookin’ at pictures on my phone
And I said I didn’t miss you but I lied, hmm
I told myself I’d let you go
Told myself I’d let you go

[Chorus]
And if I could reach the Northern lights
Maybe then I’d understand it all
Sometimes I try so hard to find
When all I want to do is fall
Into the night
Into your arms, surrеnder
Ooh-ooh, ooh
Surrender

[Verse 1]
Maybe we could have been friends
If I met you in another life
Maybe then we could pretend
There’s no gravity in the words we write
Maybe you didn’t mean it
Maybe “blonde” was the only rhyme
The only rhyme

[Pre-Chorus]
Want my heart to be breakin’, breakin’, no
I’m happy and you hate it, hate it, oh
And I’m not asking you to let it go
But you been tellin’ your side
So I’ll be tellin’ mine, oh

[Chorus]
You can try
To get under my, under my, under my skin
While hе’s on mine
Yeah, all on my, all on my, all on my skin
I wish you knew that еven you
Can’t get under my skin if I don’t let you in

[Verse 2]
You’re tellin’ it how you see it
Like truth is whatever you decide
Some people will believe it
And some will read in between the lines
You’re putting me in the spotlight
But I’ve been under it all my life
Said all my life

[Pre-Chorus]
Want my heart to be breakin’, breakin’, no
I’m happy and you hate it, hate it, oh
And I’m not asking you to let it go
But you been tellin’ your side

I just hope that one day
We both can laugh about it
When it’s not in our face
Won’t have to dance around it
Don’t drive yourself insane
It won’t always be this way

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

[Verse 1]
At first, you will find
A prophecy of what could have been, you know
You know, there’s all sorts of crap on the TV these days
Now you won’t live after such disaster
You’re a lot full of smashed-up cars
Cross-hatched in the metal when you’re cracking up
But you’re part of the pack, pup
You’re part of something bigger than the laws of nature
Mrs. Thatcher
Your cruel heart navigates the world we live in
With its anger
Going nowhere, coming at ya

[Chorus]
Rapture in my head
I’ve been looking up like I’m already dead
Rapture, oh my Lord
I’ve been playing catch-up
I’m alrеady bored
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Well, God, tell mе I sure am on the list
How can you make yourself so scarce from someone you love?
Oh, it don’t make sense
Your love is never better than the morning after
Well, Mother Nature, coming at ya

[Chorus]
Rapture in my head
I’ve looking up like I’m already dead
Rapture, oh my Lord
I’ve been playing catch-up
I’m already bored
Rapture in my head
I’ve looking up like I’m already dead
Rapture, oh my Lord
I’ve been playing catch-up
I’m already bored

Oh, rapture
Oh, rapture
Oh, rapture
Oh, rapture
Oh it’s rapture in my head
You say this is up
I’m already dead
There’s a rapture in my head
You say this is up
I’m already dead
Oooh

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Feels like I’m goin’ insane
Take me to the bed and get me outta my brain
So sick of feelin’ this way
Should I go or should I stay?
Don’t know what I can say
Let me sleep it off, we can try another day
Don’t wanna make a mistake
Should I go or should I stay?

[Pre-Chorus]
I fell into a distraction
One minute ’til it comes crashin’ down
Need more than just satisfaction
Satisfaction

[Chorus]
It’s not your fault
I’m better on my own
I’m not the girl you knew
Not tryna break your heart
Sometimes, good things fall apart
Yeah, you don’t feel like home
Like something I’ve outgrown
Think I’m better on my own
Maybe I’m better off alone

[Verse 2]
Really wanna get away
Think I need to take some space
And I feel so suffocated
Feel the same like everyday
Conversations on replay
I just need to take a break
Take a break, take a break

[Pre-Chorus]
I fell into a distraction
One minute ’til it comes crashin’ down
Need more than just satisfaction
Satisfaction

[Chorus]
It’s not your fault
I’m better on my own
I’m not the girl you knew
Not tryna break your heart
Sometimes, good things fall apart
Yeah, you don’t feel like home
Like something I’ve outgrown
Think I’m better on my own
Maybe I’m better off alone

I fell into a distraction
One minute ’til it comes crashin’

Sometimes, good things fall apart
Yeah, you don’t feel like home

Kiss it, kiss it better, baby
Been waitin’ on that sunshine, boy

She want that old thing back
Pretty young thing want that old G crack
Straight savage when I got my Fenty on

Said he gon’ kill me ’cause she up in my bed
We wear chains and it’s like the narcs (Kiss it, kiss it)
Only G7s when the flights depart
Stash pesos in Turks and Caicos
Dapper Dan Don, the first to break those
Now back to Caicos
Throw your Rollies in the sky, my guys’ll take those
Lower East Side, I’m up in NY
See me on the floor with Obi courtside
Baddies on deck, you know I’m lovin’ ’em (Kiss it, kiss it better, baby)
Still in a meetin’ with Khaled (Another one)

[Verse 2: Fat Joe]
Crack man and I’m out of the game

Sign the prenup, you know it’s cheaper to keep her
Croc Birkin, a two-seater
Put you in Milan, you can kick your feet up
Take care, pinkie ring on the don, I told her

[Chorus: Rihanna]
Kiss it, kiss it better, baby
Been waitin’ on that sunshine, boy
I think I need that back

I can’t fool myself, I don’t want nobody else to ever love me
Kiss it, kiss it
I can’t fool myself, I don’t want nobody else to ever love me
You are my shining star, my guiding light, my love fantasy

Remember times was hard, now we really made a way (We made a way)
I just wanna ball, I just wanna fade away (Fade away)
No, they ain’t pick up my call, they wan’ see me face to face (Face to face)
I feel like it’s fuck ’em all, they hate when you make a way (Make a way)

[Verse 2]
Ayy, put in time, tell me, what is a break?
I’m tryna go to be great
Shorty mad, I don’t know what to say
Tell her all the time, stay in her place
I’m a lit nigga, I be havin’ my way
My diamonds wet like I fell in a lake
She wanna smoke, wanna go to L.A
She wanna come lay where I stay
No, you caught me in my glow
These Mike Amiri denims hold my pistol, let it blow
I made eighty off a show and then spend it with the bros
I can’t buy your loyalty, but I’ll be there for you for sure
I think everybody knows this is how it goes down
Everywhere we go now, people screamin’, know ’bout
They say we are the ones who lead the generation
Sayin’ if I die right now, at least I know I was dream chasin’

[Chorus]
I tell myself to hold it down, I know I’m blessed (I know I’m blessed)
You goin’ through the motions, that’s gon’ be a lot of stress (A lot of stress)
Don’t let them fuck up your vibe, know you got it out the mud (The mud)
Yeah, I do it for the love, know they do it just because (Because)
Remember times was hard, now we really made a way (We made a way)
I just wanna ball, I just wanna fade away (Fade away)
No, they ain’t pick up my call, they wan’ see me face to face (Face to face)
I feel like it’s fuck ’em all, they hate when you make a way (Make a way)

[Outro]
Oh, make a way
Oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

Let’s get down, let’s get down to business
Give you one more night, one more night to get this
We’ve had a million, million nights just like this

Broke boy, no, can’t be around it
When there’s big business, I hit my accountant

Upgrade my bitch, still I never change up
Upgrade my whips and my crib and my key

But we can’t live ’em if we stay the same

Lil Wayne – Ain’t Got Time Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
Full of vanilla, flyin’ over chocolate mountains
I stare at the Pacific while I’m smokin’ on a kilometer
The feds, they hot on us, one hundred on the thermometer
They raided my private plane, I went got one that’s more privater
R.I.P. Juice WRLD, wrote that on two cups
Cuz pour out a lil’ juice for him, shit gave me goosebumps
Nigga been through too much, lookin’ in the rearview to see the future

[Pre-Chorus: Lil Wayne]
And that just don’t sit right
Living like I can’t die, Bumbu in me
FBI arrest me, why?
They can’t nail me so thеy just screw with me
I just try, try to hide
Somеtimes it’s hard to find time to be the good guy and still be someone
Enjoyin’ my good times more than sometimes, and I just hope

[Chorus: Lil Wayne]
I don’t get time ’cause I ain’t got time
I was high as fuck yesterday, damn, time flies
Where am I?
I admit I can’t live when I think too much, too much on my mind
I don’t get high, I got high
I was high as fuck yesterday, damn, time flies
Where am I?
I admit I can’t live when I think too much, too much

[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
But sometimes I’m at home and I gotta focus (Gotta focus)
I told bae, “Someday, I could be gone, and you might have to post up”
Fuck what I’m talkin’ ’bout, I run my mouth too much
Got too much on my mind, think about too much
Said, “It’s our time to shine,” then the clouds blew up
She said, “You better lock me down ‘fore they lock you up”

[Pre-Chorus: Lil Wayne]
And that just don’t sit right
Living like I can’t die, codeine in me
Just look through my girl contacts
I don’t know what she see in me
I just try, try to hide
Sometimes it’s hard to find time to be the good guy and still be someone
Enjoyin’ my good times more than sometimes, but I just hope

[Chorus: Lil Wayne]
I don’t get time ’cause I ain’t got time
I was high as fuck yesterday, damn, time flies
Where am I?
I admit I can’t live when I think too much, too much on my mind
I don’t get high, I got high
I was high as fuck yesterday, damn, time flies
Where am I?
I admit I can’t live when I think too much, too much

[Verse 3: Fousheé]
Oh, yeah
Can’t get a plane off the ground, I feel, sometimes
But even the weights get to bask in the sunlight
Are you really listenin’? We’re waitin’ for the punchline
Is anyone listenin’? I’m waitin’ for the punchline
But I just don’t have the time
Watch the flash, don’t blink your eye
But my head hurts, ooh, don’t lie
But I’m think I’m livin’ right
But some shit just don’t sit right
Shit just don’t right
But some shit just don’t sit right
It just don’t sit right

[Outro: Lil Wayne]
And that just don’t sit right
Living like I can’t die, codeine in me
Just look through my girl contacts
I don’t know what she see in me
I just try, try to hide
Sometimes it’s hard to find time to be the good guy and still be someone
Enjoyin’ my good times more than sometimes, but I just hope

Keyshia Cole’s DJ Revealed Why She Was Super Late For Verzuz

We now know the real reason why Keyshia Cole was so late for her Verzuz battle with Ashanti.

Diehearted fans of Keyshia Cole comprehend that along with her ability to tug on hearts via her soulful ballads and R&B joints, she also posses a pretty fun personality, which even things out. Sadly, during her Verzuz battle against Ashanti, fans received a slightly dejected KC, that’s at least until what she was sipping in her mug kicked in. After the numerous Covid delays that prevented the initial battle, the stage was finally set, with participants reverting to a home setup.

Sadly both Ashanti and Keyshia Cole were more than fashionably late to make an appearance in front of the camera, leaving nearly 1 million viewers to adore bags of Doritos and bottles of Ciroc.

Verzuz organizer Swizz Beatz addressed the situation publicly when he commented, “This is very disrespectful, cant lie man…”

After an hour of waiting, Ashanti appeared on camera and did a few numbers as she hyped up the crowd and held it down for the “Love” singer, yet, the battle didn’t commence until her arrival 15 minutes later. Many viewers were not pleased that the “Heaven Sent” singer did not offer an apology and seemed to be sporting a pretty lethargic attitude. It turns out her late entry and vibe may have been a result of technical difficulties.

Cole’s personal disc jockey, DJ HI-C, was speaking to the crew at 97.9 The Box when he explained that she was not actually late to her own home but stayed away from the camera because it was blurry.

“It started out weird..Not to say nothin about Verzuz or anything like that. On Keyshia’s defense, she didn’t wanna come out ‘cause her screen was blurry,” said Dj HI-C. “On her end, her screen was blurry. She was there on time. I seen everything. She was there, but she didn’t wanna come out because the screen was blurry and stuff wasn’t right, you know. We couldn’t hear [Ashanti’s] side, so it was a lot of technical stuff going on there.”

While Ashanti’s feed was quite pristine, Cole’s audio and video posed a problem for some, especially those viewing on Instagram. The reveal has earned the wrath of some viewers, who have called on stricter measures from Verzuz organizers.

“I went back and watched it, they were BOTH mad disrespectful to the [Verzuz] audience. Here are a few rules you may want to consider for the artists moving forward with love. Do not be on your phone while performing. Don’t get up and walk off while the other artist is singing. Don’t throw shade. Don’t be LATE. Respect the fans, their time, etc. Do a test from a private IG page hours before the live performance,” wrote one IG user.

Others were more sympathetic and understanding of the situation, shedding light on the fact that most entertainers see the Verzuz battles as full-blown productions.

“Most real artist not performing if their sound messed up. Seeing we in a pandemic this is their shows so everything should be right before they perform. To us its just a live video, for them these they concerts and the set up was janky as hell on Keyshia end.”

Saweetie Reveals The Moment She Knew Quavo Was In Love With Her

Saweetie says Quavo proved his love by offering up a piece of chicken.

There are many people in this world who eat for sustenance but for some of us, it’s all about the experience – from the very first succulent taste to the stereotypically best last bite. There is also a disparity between those who are willing to share food and those who aren’t, and for some of us who aren’t the Joey Tribbianis of this world, that decision is the yardstick for true love.

Saweetie has been in a relationship with Migos rapper Quavo for a few years now, and with all the lavish gifts that they have exchanged throughout their time together, you would think she’d have an extensive list of luxuries to assure her of her boyfriend’s love. Interestingly enough, the “My Type” rapper said it was a piece of chicken that communicated how Quavo really feels about her. “The moment I realized that Quavo really loved me is when he saved me some of his food,” Saweetie reportedly told Page Six. “He gave me his last piece of chicken.”

“I wasn’t testing him or anything,” she continued. “I’ll be coming out of a Zoom meeting or done doing something and he would have saved me some of his food.” Granted, the last piece is worth much more than a bite and should qualify a sixth love language, but you can imagine the surprise when fans learned that the brand new customized “Icy” Bentley that Quavo gifted her for Christmas didn’t do the trick.

Saweetie explained, “Those are the things that really matter: the things that have no price on them. The Bentley is cool but I’m really into intimacy and how you treat me with my emotional feels.”

Some fans see the humble revelation as an improvement following Saweetie’s controversial “If he not getting you a Birkin, if he not paying for your bills, then throw that n***a back to the street” comment last year. Perhaps at the time, she thought the last piece of chicken was a given.
