Chadian President Idriss Déby Itno has died of injuries suffered on the front line in northern Chad, where he had gone to visit soldiers battling rebels during a major incursion into the region, an army spokesman said on Tuesday.

Déby, 68, who had ruled the central Africa nation for more than three decades, had just secured his sixth term in office after being declared the winner of the April 11 presidential election just hours prior to the announcement. The longtime head of state had the support of the US for his efforts battling Islamist extremism and fighting against militant groups like Boko Haram.

There are many questions about the circumstances of Déby’s death. While the military said Déby had taken “the heroic lead in combat operations against terrorists who had come from Libya,” some observers questioned why a head of state was in a conflict zone and how he could have been killed, casting doubt on his protective guard.

Since coming to power in 1990, Déby’s government survived several armed rebellions until this latest insurgency, which is believed to have trained in neighboring Libya before crossing into northern Chad on April 11. The country’s government and parliament have been dissolved, a curfew has been imposed and the borders have been shut. Déby’s son, Mahamat Kaka, has been named interim president.

What The World is following

India continues to see a surge in COVID-19 infections, with new cases surpassing 200,000 for the past six consecutive days. Delhi imposed a weeklong lockdown starting Monday night to prevent the collapse of the already overwhelmed health system. The total number of COVID-19 cases reported in the country stands at over 15 million — the second-highest number of infections in the world — with more than 1.5 million of those infections reported in the last seven days. The medical response to the health crisis has been hampered by shortages of oxygen, medicines and hospital beds.

Firefighters in Cape Town have largely contained a wildfire that ravaged the city’s famed Table Mountain and the University of Cape Town’s historic library, which housed priceless collections documenting South African history. The fire, which started on Sunday amid high winds and hot, dry conditions, moved fast overnight Sunday into Monday, forcing the evacuation of some highly populated neighborhoods along the edge of the Table Mountain National Park. Well-known tourist sites such as the aerial cableway and the nearby Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden have been temporarily closed.

Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Mayor Mike Elliott talks to Marco Werman about how his childhood in Liberia prepared him for this leadership moment — as his city grapples with the killing of Daunte Wright, and braces for the verdict in the George Floyd case.

“People are reckoning with what’s happened and we’re … seeing people who are nervous about what may happen if the verdict goes one way or the other, people are on edge anticipating what the jury’s going to come back with. We hope that it is a result that speaks to justice for George Floyd, and for his daughter, and for his family and for all of us,” Elliott said.

Russian dissident Alexei Navalny’s health warrants ‘justified, grave concern,’ says his adviser

In this Feb. 20, 2021, file photo, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny stands in a cage in the Babuskinsky District Court in Moscow, Russia. Navalny, who is in the third week of a hunger strike, will be admitted to a hospital in another prison, the Russian state penitentiary service said Monday, April 19, after the politician’s doctor said he could be near death.

The health of Alexei Navalny is becoming a question of diplomatic urgency. The Russian opposition leader is on a hunger strike in prison — and his health is deteriorating.

The Russian state penitentiary service said that Navalny was moved on Monday to a hospital at another prison in Vladamir, a city about 110 miles east of Moscow, and that he agreed to receive vitamin therapy. But close advisers have cast doubt on this claim, and are seeking to confirm Navalny’s whereabouts and health status.

French lawmakers passed a bill that could punish anyone sharing images or videos of police officers with the intent to cause “psychological or physical” harm. And, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny has been taken to a prison hospital following a three-week hunger strike and deteriorating health. Can the US intervene? Also, the long-awaited travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand is now open, allowing Aussies to travel to New Zealand without a required two-week quarantine.

6ix9ine – BREAKIN IT DOWN Lyrics

[Hook: 6ix9ine & Hudson Flo]
I’m breaking it down (stupid!)
A scam, I heard that boy running around with the packs
So I’m taking him down (yeah)
Oh my gosh, they live by the cold (you fucking dummy)
You know we ain’t making a sound (what)
You thinking about playing around with my respect
I’m making it blaow (blaow!) I’m making it blaow (blaow!)
I’m breaking it down (what)
A scam, I heard that boy running around with the packs
So I’m taking him down (ywhat)
Oh my gosh, they live by the cold
You know we ain’t making a sound (big stupid)
You thinking about playing around with my respect
I’m making it blaow (blaow!) I’m making it blaow (blaow!)

[Verse 1: 6ix9ine]
Wish I could bring Pun back, blaow, nigga, run that
‘Til they let Rowdy out, we gon’ let these semis out
Wish I could bring Stacks back, Chad, let the MAC clap
‘Til they free Biggavel, gotta give you niggas hell
Blicky make the nigga yell, beam hit his knees
Made him scream, when that nigga fell, shootout with the law
Or the morgue ‘fore I sit in jail, niggas say they love me
I can see it in these niggas eyes, they don’t wish me well
I don’t need their company, they smilin’ when a nigga fell
Seein’ that I’m poppin’, then the shotgun, like the third round
Order stitches for these snitches, dead men tell no tales
Diggin’ ditches for these niggas, toss ’em in, so well
Drive-by, leave him in the street, nigga, road kill
HBA, gold fronts, let me guess, “So trill”?
Nigga, this is New York, make the wrong move
And the goons let the tool spark, work hard and move salt
8 Ball like pool holes, cracked like the pavement
Diesel like the gas station, trap out the basement
Blow in the Pyrex, mask on our faces
Let ’em act sketch, but this lead will erase ’em, on gang

[Hook: 6ix9ine & Hudson Flo]
I’m breaking it down (stupid!)
A scam, I heard that boy running around with the packs
So I’m taking him down (yeah)
Oh my gosh, they live by the cold (fucking dummy)
You know we ain’t making a sound (what)
You thinking about playing around with my respect
I’m making it blaow (blaow!) I’m making it blaow (blaow!)
I’m breaking it down (stupid!)
A scam, I heard that boy running around with the packs
So I’m taking him down (yeah)
Oh my gosh, they live by the cold (fucking dummy)
You know we ain’t making a sound (what)
You thinking about playing around with my respect
I’m making it blaow (blaow!) I’m making it blaow (blaow!)

Rey Acaas – Gutsy Gear lyrics

Intro
(it was the day when I meet the myth called love,
She was angel like moon light shining dove,
Days and nights were pleasant I was thinking of her)

My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player,
I just forgot in my rhyme when she looking at that time,
Baby, you are my sunshine, you are my passion vine,
My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player.

(Rap)
There was a day when I used to think,
Can it be possible,
In the dark side of optimistic ride,
Hurdles comes and go,
I have to be in my flow.
She so sweet like a bubble gum,
She offered me Bacardi rum,
I kissed her, she said I’m so yum yum,
Now, she’s my queen and I’m king of her Kingdom,
There were boys who living in slum,
Deprived of being numb,
Supplying me Marijuana, Rising their thumb.
Pata nahi, kaha se chura ke laya hoon,
Dekho Dekho mein Gaanza laya hoon,
Isko peene ke baad chad jayegi,
Teri meri ankhein ladd jayegi,
Dil me aad jayegi, gadd jayegi,
Dhadkane badd jayegi.

My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player.
I just forgot in my rhyme when she looking at that time,
Baby, you are my sunshine, you are my passion vine.
My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player.

(Rap)
Your man reach to the climax even before,
But you want it more and you seen me before,
Now, this a time when you decide for more,
So, you will get more.
It’s all up to you, how much load you taken before,
Now, this a time when you decide for more,
So, you will get more.
In a white darkness, I’m searching my name,
Which was no more,
Now, I’m tough and hardcore.
Na jane kaisa shor tha,
Har galli me ek Naya mod tha,
Har mod pe baita ek chor tha,
Dil me koi aur, Baho me koi aur tha,
Wo uski nazro khel tha,
Uske aage na kisi ka kisi se koi mel tha.

My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player.
I just forgot in my rhyme when she looking at that time,
Baby, you are my sunshine, you are my passion vine.
My life is a gutsy gear, moving with a speed of rare,
Ladies seeing me were unaware that they call me player of player.

Dave East – Peter Pan

[Intro]
Time changed, check out your mind frame
Got no times for mind games (grow up, nigga)
Grow up, nigga

[Verse 1]
He 37, think he 22
His mother work, he play the crib, just polishin’ his .22
Plus he eat up all the food but never grocery shop
Actin’ like he out lookin’ for a job but he know he not
He know the gossip, know what happen when Chad got locked up
He know who beefin’ like every weekend, his BM pop up
He keep makin’ promises, he gon’ help her
He never felt a hard time dealin’ with pressure
The youngin’ niggas used to respect him, was kinda credible
He shot a couple cats in the 90’s, few niggas never knew
He did a stretch for some domestic shit
He punched his ex after she told him, this some pussy you could never get
Behind the wall, turned Blood, but came home neutral
‘Cause streets spooky, you think we practise our own voodoo
He realize shit changed, he had to hustle smarter
High temper, shape-up push back, he wanna cut his barber
He loved his father but through his life he could not trust him
Damn near 40, just realized he ain’t got nothin’
Had the green light for years, his connect hit the stop button
Back to nicklin’, dimin’, youngin’s on the block pumpin’

[Chorus]
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan

[Verse 2]
Niggas bought him clothes when he got out the yard
He was bigger then, homies told him he should bodyguard
He was used to crack’s, ain’t know the price that molly cost
Youngin’s don’t pay him no mind, they figure he probably lost
They don’t know he grew up in the era where nobody soft
He tried to school ’em and gave ’em his own narcotic talk
Told him never stash your money and your work together
Never had no package when your body, it ain’t work forever
Found a nigga you could really trust, I think y’all work together
Never smoke, ridin’ with dope, rain is the perfect weather
So how you broke if you got all the answers?
You ain’t even got hoes workin’ and know all the dancers
Check this out, old head, we gon’ get it the way we know how
We ain’t takin’ deals, I coppin’ out, know we gon’ blow trial
You slow bringin’ it back so we just front you a whole now
Us young niggas get real money, I hope you know now
Everybody that ain’t here would be half his age
All he do is argue, been a minute since he had a fade
He got a mattress, he ain’t even got no sheets
Been in his mother crib for years and he ain’t even got no key

[Chorus]
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan

[Verse 3]
How you 40 and niggas pay you to look out?
He don’t miss a night at the club, don’t miss a cook out (not one)
Dishes in his mother crib, dirty garbage he ain’t took out (never)
But he could tell you who got pregnant, tell you who shook out
Some niggas fightin’ after younger girls like he still got it (still)
He never had it, had light static, he still hottin’
Youngin’s got him sippin’ lean, they got him pill poppin’ (percs)
This real knowledge, these niggas 40 and still plottin’ (watch ’em)

[Chorus]
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan

[Outro]
I blame it on the elder niggas that never helped us
We had to go get it, no guidance, nobody felt us
16 with more pocket money than your daddy
We was broke and we came up from nothin’, nigga, we gon’ brag
All this Gucci, we gon’ brag
Older niggas hatin’, not all of ’em I remember callin’ ’em, now they so mad
They ain’t reach their potential and live the life they want to live

[Chorus]
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan
I got homies comin’ home sayin’ they need a gram
Remembers fiends on my phone sayin’ they need a gram
Stuck in the past, guess somebody told him he the man
Some niggas’ll never grow up, I call ’em Peter Pan

Len – Steal My Sunshine lyrics

[Intro:]
[Tim:] Hey, Matt
[Matt:] Yeah, Tim?
[Tim:] Hey, you talked to Marc lately?
[Matt:] Uh, haven’t really talked to him but he looks pretty, uh, down
[Tim:] “He looks pretty, uh, down?” Yeah, well maybe we should cheer him up then
[Matt:] What do you, uh, suppose we should do?
[Tim:] Well, does he like butter tarts?

[Verse 1: Marc]
I was lying on the grass
On Sunday morning of last week
Indulging in my self-defeat
My mind was thugged, all laced and bugged
All twisted wrong and beat
A comfortable in three feet deep
Now the fuzzy stare from not being there
On a confusing morning week
Impaired my tribal lunar speak
And of course you can’t become if you only say
What you would have done
So I missed a million miles of fun

[Chorus: Marc and Sharon]
I know it’s up for me
(If you steal my sunshine)
Making sure I’m not in too deep
(If you steal my sunshine)
Keeping versed and on my feet
(If you steal my sunshine)

[Spoken: On Album Version]
[Tim:] Chad, come here come here, come here
[Chad:] Wow, look at her
[Tim:] I know
[Chad:] Wow, I’ve never seen Sharon look so bad before
[Tim] I did once before but this is pretty bad
[Chad:] Yeah, what do you think she got up to last night?
[Tim:] Well, I, “Jared, I love you!”

[Verse 2: Sharon]
I was lying on the bench slide
In the park across the street
L-A-T-E-R that week
My sticky paws were in to making straws
Out of big fat Slurpee treats
An incredible eight foot heap
Now the funny glare to pay a gleaming tare
In a staring under heat
Involved an under usual feat
And I’m not only among
But I invite who I want to come
So I missed a million miles of fun

[Chorus: Marc and Sharon]
I know it’s up for me
(If you steal my sunshine)
Making sure I’m not in too deep
(If you steal my sunshine)
Keeping versed and on my feet
(If you steal my sunshine)

[Chorus 2: Marc and Sharon]
I know it’s done for me
(If you steal my sunshine)
Not as some and hard to see
(If you steal my sunshine)
Keeping dumb and built to beat
(If you steal my sunshine)

[Outro]
My sunshine, if you steal my sunshine
My sunshine, if you steal my sunshine
My sunshine, if you steal my sunshine

That badge of honor just not enough to conceal they feelings
They offing all us that’s just what I’ma tell my daughter partner
Study in school, watch out for cooties in the law department
Hey, I coulda kept my scholarship but hey
And I could of been a robber couldn’t I have? Yeah
A 4.5 40, or a 45 40, either way I run for my defense

[Hook: Anthony Hamilton]
I got so much to live for
So much to share
Could take a look in the mirror
And there’s no one else to care
I got so much to live for
So much to give
I don’t care if we take forever
Forever I’ll live

[Verse 2: Wale]
Another bragger, money don’t make ya boy
And lil Chad struggle with makers boy
So I ain’t waiting for no reparations
Man who got the patience
Just pay attention, I make my statements, boy
You young and black, you may be lacking motivation
That (?) shoot a basket, women out here naked
1 in every 20 of ’em doing good though
That’s not a stat, that’s actually out my phone book
And I pray tonight night because they hate us and know it
I’ma pray tonight homie my lil baby don’t know it
I’ma hold on tight homie for every weapon they folding
How can all lives matter if it’s only brothers that’s mourning?
Haah, yeah
BLM till we see the end
See I was sorting sleeping until I seen the debt man
Numbers exceed the limit
And now I see it different
Ain’t willing to die for it? At least breathe it in
