People Like Me January 30, 2010

K’Naan is a Somali-Canadian rapper (he was born in Somalia). Here is one song from his last album “Trouboudar”, “People Like Me” is an amazing song  because it makes you think about problems that people are facing everyday. It made me think about “Runaway love” from Ludacris and Mary J. Blige. These two songs are powerful 🙂

People Like Me

Heaven, is there a chance that you could come down
and open doors to hurtin people like me
People like me (4x)

Is it fair to say that I am stressing out
I’m stationed in Iraq and they won’t let me out
My homeys said I was stupid for even joining
My counsoller said that my decision was disappointing
How she had good for good state colleges
and with my good grades it wouldn’t have been a problem
but they don’t understand the power of significance
more than brilliance and certainly more than dividends
and if you ask me now would i repeat it
Would i fight in a war i don’t believe in
Well the answer is if not me where the cancer is
they been doing this before Jesus of Nazereth
and after all this time it is still deadly hazardous
and bush isn’t really being all that inaccurate
When he says we’re winning the war cos its staggering
but thats cos we’re killing everybody that we see
and most of us soldiers we can barely fall asleep
and time and time again i’m feeling incompetent
cos my women back home, we’re constantly arguing
and i must be crazy cos all i’m obsessing with is
her myspace and facebook and who’s commenting
I swear to god if she’s cheatin’ I’m doin her ass in
I can tell with one look and it came to me sounding like something from a song hook

Heaven, is there a chance that you could come down
and open doors to hurtin people like me
People like me (4x)

Meet Sarah, the proud mother of young sabastian
suburban professional went to college in …shton
In self pity she suddenly cried,
would my life be important if I suddenly died?
Neighbours saying what a nice women she was
keeping mostly to herself ever since the divorce
and with the compant downsizein and the fall and all
she really shouldn’t take it that personal at all
It wasn’t her boss who had his eyes on her thighs
and got a rise from her risin off the desk though
and despite rememberin sayin no plenty of times
it was still a damn surprise being let go
and now stuck with a mortgage she cant afford
and too educated to blame the corporate world
She got on welfare and hated it case work a power trippin
and generally being degraded if,
nothing else she was treated sick
and ineffective which is the worst thing
that she’d been left with
Damn, no magic from david blane,
no painter to pain this pain,
No morgan freeman to narrate the shame
So she took refuge and prayer
kinda like findin god in the phonebook
and it came to her sounding something like a song hook

Heaven, is there a chance that you could come down
and open doors to hurtin people like me
People like me (4x)

I guess I told you about myself to a degree
just by telling you about people like me
but people like me they speak politely
they don’t start no beef or peace …
Everybody gotta eat but everybody doesn’t
which is why i want to tell you about my favourite cousin
he and I grew up where the sun shines
and we both partook with the gun crimes
and we both liked american rap rhymes
even though we didn’t understand one line
if you remember my line of notes in my last album
I talked about a close call with a grenade
I think we both must have been about 7th grade
but dont panic we both survived without damage
but we developed a bond like we survived the titanic
but when the country became frantic
my mother tried to get us out, planned it
to the last detail except the plan got derailed
cos there wasn’t enough money for the plane tickets
how bitter when my mother had to chose who to take with her
so my cousin got left in the war and thats just hard to recall
but now i take refuge and prayer,
kinda like finding god in the phonebook
it came to me sounding kinda like something from a song hook .

Heaven, is there a chance that you could come down
and open doors to hurtin people like me
People like me (4x)

Heaven, is there a chance that you could come down
and open doors to hurtin people like me
People like me (4x)

I AM- from her last album “Stronger”

Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better
Ain’t nobody gonna touch you better
Ain’t nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

When you’re out at night and you’re in the streets
And you have time to yourself
Think of all the love that you get from me
That you can’t find nowhere else

When you’re far away and I’m not around
And temptation fills your heart
Think of all the ways that I’m faithful, babe
And to replace me would be hard, ’cause there’s nobody

Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better
(No, nobody)
Ain’t nobody gonna touch you better
(Nobody)
Ain’t nobody gonna love you better
(No)
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

You can try to act single if you wanna
You can go ahead and mingle if you wanna
You can even behave like
You don’t care

But you know
(But you know)
Like I know
(Like I know)
That you ain’t that foolish, who you foolin’?
You won’t ruin what’s been here all along
You ain’t movin’ from what you got at home

Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better
Ain’t nobody gonna touch you better
(Ain’t nobody gonna touch you)
Ain’t nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody’s gonna touch you)
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

I just want you to know, baby, I love you so
There is no need to go lookin’ for nothing more
‘Cause I’ve got everything you’ll ever need right here
But if you feel that you need to leave, just know

Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better
Ain’t nobody gonna touch you better
(Ain’t nobody)
Ain’t nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better
Ain’t nobody gonna touch you better
Ain’t nobody gonna love you better
Boy, than I am, than I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Than I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

As I am
As I am
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

(Nobody, nobody)
As I am
(Nobody, nobody)
As I am
(Nobody, nobody)
Ohh, nobody’s gonna treat you as good as I am

Part 2

Lil’Wayne aka Weezy aka…. is a rapper that is very talented. People have different opinions about him but I think he is great. I went to see him twice in concert and it was worth it:)

Everybody knows what is happening in Haiti….

Rihanna was on the Oprah show this week, she sang one of my favorite song from Bob Marley “Redemption Song”.

Please help the country by going on the Red Cross website (www.redcross.ca) or by giving money.

Here is the real version of the song from Bob Marley.
