Lied van de week: week 18 - 2017

Shine a light - Shabazz Palaces featuring Thadillac


Shabazz Palaces tekende met Lese majesty voor het op één na beste album van 2014 en binnenkort brengen ze eindelijk een opvolger uit. Quazars: born on a gangster star belooft speciaal te worden: het vertelt het verhaal van een buitenaardse gangster die onze planeet bezoekt.
Shine a light is de eerste single eruit en bevat die heerlijk herkenbare vocale lijnen van Ishmael Butler op een bedje van de heerlijkste, meest relaxed samples die Tendai ‘Baba’ Maraire bij elkaar raapte. 


Lyrics:

[Intro:]
Shine a light
It's seven, it's heavy, it's heaven
It's seven, it's heavy, it's heaven
It's seven
It's heaven, it's seven, it's heavy
It's seven, it's heavy, it's heaven

[Hook:]
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all

[Verse:]
Street profit
Sweets geeked off it
Seek profit
Cook styles eat off it
Think unique, tyres squeak, jewels blink
Defy critique, high peaks, comped suites
She said I'm too deep, then she fell asleep
How that llama repeat sounds hella sweet
Gorgeous dashing
Waves crashing, mind elastics
Smooth action
The Cadillacs was backed in (Why?)
You may need to get in the trunk or in the wind (Fast)
Lost friends
Floss for them gloss gems
Often it's thought that i'm lost in
Weighing out what this chance takings costing
Sliding cornered by more law enforcements
Feeling like i'm riding with The Four Horsemen

[Hook:]
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all
Shine a light on the fake
This way my peeps can have it all

[Outro:]
Shout out my pops Big Reg
Love you baby
Shout out all the old heads
As time whispers in your ear
Know we love you baby
