lyrics

Real brothers greet each other
With a kiss on the cheek
Ain’t got a problem handholding
Shooting sh*t in the street
Manhood secure — never skipping a beat
Only stopping for roses
Pick 'em & breathe in
Burning bushes of Moses
Life’s too short to ever listen to posers
Truest of friends know this & take notice
The fake dudes we ain’t close with
Just stay focused
They are hopeless!
When the ego grow big like my nose is
Gotta take a step back & control this
Squash beef — Show love — Seek closures
Otherwise over time it exposes
Weakness like you wouldn’t believe
Stress lodged in the chest
Covert / Covid disease
Best just let it be
Ill recognize ill
No pretending
Offendum & friends
Yousef & Yassin

Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
This is between me & him
Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
Y’all seen / Yassin my friend?

(Narcy verse)

Offendum khouya (my brother)
Hollywood Don.
Anee Kullish Za3lan (I’m very sad)
I shoulda got you all in check like Woo Hah!
But I didn’t
Couldn’t visit
Had visions
Wuhan!
First off
Anee ju3an (I’m hungry)
I need a plate of Timmin Bagilla (Rice & Fava Beans, as it is referred to in Iraq)
See I slice the verse with the knife I cut the deal with
I got life to deal with...

(Offendum)

Yeah yeah layk (look)
I’ma let you finish
But not until you have another hit of my Spinach
Pie — my eye — 3eini
Isn’t it delicious?

(Narcy)

I guess brotherhood ain’t a meal ticket
It’s a real ticket
To heal together
Break bread once that’s a meal forever
Keep it real forever

(Offendum)

Eh Lak Takreem il-Dhayf (Arab Hospitality!)
Your commands are my wishes
But I’ll smack that hand if you try to do the dishes...

Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
This is between me & him
Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
Y’all seen / Yassin my friend?

(Offendum)

We know
We’re the best things
To come out of the Fertile Crescent
Since the grains that were pressed in sliced bread & then blessed
With a sesame dressing

(Narcy)

Next best thing is testing & resting
We know the free flows will feed folk
Be broke but bespoke you’re beef roast

(Offendum)

No need for impressing
Your presence a blessing

(Narcy)

Hey can we eat already man?
Enough verses.

(Offendum)

Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
This is between me & him
Where he at — where he at?
Lak waynooo?
Y’all seen / Yassin my friend?

Follow me — Follow me!
Damascene Dragoman
Take my hand & let’s roll
Follow me — Follow me — Follow me!
Los Shamgeles is paved with gold
Follow me — Follow me
Damascene Dragoman
Take my hand & let’s roll
Follow me Follow me Follow me
Los Shamgeles is paved with gold
Or so I'm told ...
