you put a note in my pocket, said
be good to yourself
and that was all

life being what it is,
we all dream of revenge
open your eyes for a second just to roll them at me
i stared straight into the sun,
something to concentrate on

and if you turn it on you’d find, i’ve written you a thousand times
you would do anything, you’d give up everything for god knows why
i just can’t stay till your gone
i won’t wish you well,
i won’t see you off,
i won’t try to call.
if i see you in my mind, i’ll say to you
it’s not your fault

you said i’ll see you in september, but that’s not long enough for me
you put a note in my pocket,
so it would take care of me
but that was all

– kaki king, life being what it is


the only thing cruler than me, is time

i will leave you to time – oum kalthoum
أم كلثوم – ح اسيبك للزمن

i will leave you to time
without reproach or sorrow
you will suffer from regret and know pain
if you complain, i won’t ask what’s wrong
if you cry, i will not have mercy on you
oh you who did not have mecy on me when my heart was in your hands
time has passed you by
time will make you taste my fire in the separation
time will take my revenge for me
every betrayal and every night you kept me up
every abandonment and every wound you left for me
the nights will all return to you
one day you will need the affection of my heart
one day you will long for my presence
and you will not ever find another love like mine
and the regret will remain inside your heart
hurting you more than living a life of me reproaching you
tomorrow you’ll hope i’ll settle the score with you
i won’t settle the score and i won’t reproach you
it’s enough that i left you to time
i’m going to leave you with that which has no mercy and you cannot handle
i won’t say you know what time is going to do
time always changes things so much
the more it goes on moans take the place of laughter
complain, i won’t ask you what’s wrong
cry, i won’t have mercy on you
oh you who did not have mecy on me when my heart was in your hands
time has passed you by

i love songs about horses, railroads, land, judgment day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak, and love. and mother. and god.j. cash

aside from the new roots album, pretty much all the music i’ve been listening to lately has come from south of the mason-dixon line. i think that says more about the current state of rap music than about my tastes, but take what you will from it.

both bun b & big boi’s new albums are a welcome addition to my collection and i would go so far as to say that big boi’s sir luscious leftfoot: the son of chico dusty is my choice (so far) for album of the year. but i mention this more as an opening to talk about my boy yelawolf. both big boi and bun b, as well as plenty of other respectable rap cats (raekwon!) have given dude a strong co-sign, and deservedly so. you might recognize him as the cat that sang the chorus on juelz santanta’s mixin’ up the medicine and if you’ve had a conversation with me about rap music in the past year, you’ll know that i’ve been stanning pretty heavy on this white boy from the ‘bama for a minute. i can’t wait to see what he brings to the game.  he’s currently touring rock the bells as well as with wiz khalifa & big K.R.I.T., another southern rapper that brings them heatrocks. you can download/stream K.R.I.T.’s self-produced album here, it’s incredible. he just signed to def jam, so expect to hear plenty more from him soon.

and, oh, how could i ever almost leave this out!! datpiff has a new iphone app where you can listen to any mixtape on the site!!! amaaaaaazing. anyways, here are a bunch of yelawolf videos. if he didn’t already have 3 children, i’d consider giving him his first…
