Belarusian Foreign Ministry announces attack on embassy in London

MFA of Belarus: the embassy in London was attacked by a “radical emigrant group” One of the Belarusian diplomats was beaten, the facade of the building of the embassy was “spoiled”, according to Minsk. The British attorney was summoned to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry in connection with the incident

In London, a group of people attacked the Belarusian embassy, ​​the Belarusian Foreign Ministry claims. According to Minsk, representatives of the 'radical emigrant group' were involved in the incident.

“ First, a group of people damaged the facade of the building of the foreign establishment, and then the Belarusian diplomats who arrived at the scene were physically attacked. One of them was seriously injured and required urgent medical attention. In a healthcare institution, a nose fracture, mild concussion and a traumatic tooth fracture were diagnosed, '' & mdash; According to the statement of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry.

The attackers tried to escape, but some of them were detained by the police.

The Charge d'Affaires of Great Britain was summoned to the Foreign Ministry of Belarus in connection with the incident.

“ This attempt at reprisals, committed against persons who, through their duty, protect the interests of Belarusian citizens and work to improve interstate relations, once again eloquently demonstrates the true face and methods of action of the fanatics, whom a number of countries of the collective West are persistently trying to pass off as peaceful protesters. '' , & mdash; stated in the Foreign Ministry.

Belarusian diplomats say the attackers were believed to be affiliated with the 'radical émigré group' Nadzeya. There is no mention of an organization with such a name in open sources. From 1994 to 2007, the Belarusian Women's Party Nadzeya existed in Belarus, but it was liquidated by a decision of the Supreme Court.

The Belarusian People's Embassy organization; in the UK, formed by supporters of the opposition, on her Twitter said that a protest rally in support of political prisoners in Belarus had taken place at the building the day before. The message does not mention any conflict with the embassy security.

Video

Tadeusz Gichan, a Belarusian journalist and ex-editor of the Nexta Telegram channel, posted an alleged recording of the conflict on Twitter. The recording, made at night, recorded a conflict involving a group of men, one of whom kicks his opponent.

The London police told RBC that law enforcement officers received a call at about 19:40 on Sunday, December 19. They were informed of the incident at the embassy, ​​and the diplomatic officer said that he was attacked. “ One man was arrested nearby and taken into custody. Investigation continues '', & mdash; added to the police.

The Belarusian authorities have repeatedly argued that the protests in the country, which began after the presidential elections in 2020, were provoked from abroad and that a number of countries, including Lithuania and Poland. The opposition refuses to recognize the elections as legitimate, believing that their results were falsified.

Court in London allowed Julian Assange to be extradited to the United States

British court overturned decision to ban the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Assange to the United States The British court overturned the decision to ban the extradition of Assange to the United States, upholding the appeal of the US representatives who insisted on extradition of the founder of the Wikileaks website to Washington

Julian Assange

The Court of Appeal of England and Wales allowed the extradition of the founder of the Wikileaks portal Julian Assange to the United States, according to Sky News.

The extradition case was returned to the Westminster Magistrates' Court, which initially considered Assange's extradition. The United States has been trying to get him extradited since his arrest in 2019.

The defense has the right to challenge this decision. Assange's fiancé Stella Maurice told reporters after the hearing that an appeal would be filed by lawyers as soon as possible.

She called the court's decision dangerous and erroneous. “ How can it be considered fair and correct to extradite Julian to the country that plotted to kill him, '' & mdash; Morris said.

The American authorities applied for Assange's extradition, but the court in early January refused to extradite the founder of Wikileaks due to the danger that Assange suffers from depression and could commit suicide if he is kept in a maximum security prison.

On December 10, the Court of Appeal accepted the arguments of the American side and ruled out the risk of Assange's suicide. Lawyers representing the United States assured the court that Assange would not be detained in the United States under harsh conditions.

“ We believe that this risk (of suicide) is excluded due to the guarantees presented. We are convinced that if these guarantees were presented to the judge (who had previously forbidden extradition to Judge Vanessa Baraitser), she would have responded to the request differently. & lt; … & gt; This conclusion is enough to make a decision in favor of the United States, '' & mdash; According to the verdict of the judges of the Court of Appeal.

At the same time, Assange's lawyers said at the hearing that they did not consider the promises of the American side weighty. Lawyer Edward Fitzgerald also noted that the previous decision to ban extradition was carefully weighed and made taking into account the results of the study of Assange's mental state.

Assange was detained in April 2019 after hiding at the Ecuadorian embassy in London for several years. In the US, 50-year-old Assange faces a total of 17 charges of espionage and computer hacking. If extradited, the WikiLeaks founder could be sentenced to up to 175 years in prison. The case against Assange was opened in connection with the publication on the WikiLeaks website of US official documents on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as diplomatic cables in 2010 and 2011. The investigation believes that Assange was an accomplice of the American defense analyst Chelsea Manning, who violated the espionage law, participated in hacking computers and published classified information, which could harm the informants of the American special services.

At the embassy Ecuador in London, Assange went into hiding to avoid extradition from 2012 to 2019 after being accused of rape in Sweden. The Swedish prosecutor's office closed the case in 2017 due to the impossibility of interrogating the accused, but after he left the embassy, ​​resumed the preliminary investigation. On April 11, 2019, the Ecuadorian authorities deprived Assange of asylum at the embassy, ​​and in July 2021 he was stripped of his citizenship.

The Wikileaks founder is currently in custody in Britain for for having previously violated the conditions of bail and escaped from the court at the embassy. In November, Assange and his fiancée Stella Morris were allowed to marry in prison.

London announced the choice of the EU between the hydrocarbons of Russia and assistance to Kiev

The British prime minister is convinced that soon the European Union will have to choose whether to increase its dependence on hydrocarbons from Russia or stand up for Ukraine. He assured that Great Britain does not want to be an “enemy of Russia”

Boris Johnson

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson expressed the opinion that soon the European Union will have a choice whether to increase its dependence on Russian hydrocarbon supplies or to speak in support of Ukraine, reports Bloomberg.

“We hope that our friends will realize that there will soon be a choice, whether they are hooked even more on Russian hydrocarbons that go through giant new pipelines, or stand up for Ukraine and stand up for the cause of peace and stability, if you will allow me to put it that way.” & mdash; said the head of government.

Johnson stressed that Great Britain does not want to be an “ enemy of Russia '' because of Ukraine, but expresses a “ commitment to democracy and freedom '' like its allies on the European continent.

The prime minister also noted that London “ reacted quickly '' when Poland asked for help in dealing with the “ contrived crisis '' on its border with Belarus, where the regime of Alexander Lukashenko provoked thousands of migrants to cross the EU borders in order to undermine the security of European states.

On November 14, The Mirror newspaper, citing sources, reported that British authorities can send 600 people from the SAS special forces unit to Ukraine. According to one of the interlocutors, this may happen in the near future. The reason for the transfer is the conviction of British intelligence MI6 and Boris Johnson in the imminent invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine.

In late October, The Washington Post wrote about the pulling together of the Russian military to the border with Ukraine. American and European officials told the publication that they see “ unusual movements of equipment and military on the western flank of Russia '', which began immediately after the completion of the Russian-Belarusian exercises West-2021, which took place from 10 to 15 September. The article also noted that the movement of troops is taking place against the background of a toughening of Russia's position in relation to Ukraine, and the conflict in Donbass is “ entering a new stage. ''

In early November, the US Department of Defense announced “ unusual activity '' Russian military near the border with Ukraine. The Pentagon called on Russia to clarify its intentions and warned that any aggression or escalation would be “ seriously worried. '' USA.

Later, the S & uuml; ddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, citing diplomatic sources, reported that the US had approached the UK, France and Germany on this issue. & laquo; Reason [appeal] & mdash; the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine and the associated high potential for escalation '', & mdash; wrote the edition.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the movement of Russian military equipment and army units across the country is exclusively a matter of Russia, and the latest publications about their appearance near the border with Ukraine are “ not even worth commenting on ''; .

London accused Russia of neglecting security in space

SOURCE: PIXABAY

Russia neglected to ensure safety in space during testing of anti-satellite weapons, says British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace. In his opinion, due to the actions of the Russian side, potentially dangerous space debris has formed in Earth's orbit.

“The devastating test of an anti-satellite missile by Russia demonstrates complete disregard for safety and long-term stability in outer space,” he said.

In his opinion, the resulting debris will now threaten satellites and spacecraft for many years.

Earlier, the US State Department accused Russia of testing anti-satellite weapons that threatened the ISS.

London allowed the transfer of Russian tanks to the border with Ukraine

British experts argue that the movement of military equipment in the Voronezh region is associated precisely with the strengthening of the grouping on the Ukrainian border. In Kiev, they said before that they did not fix the concentration of Russian forces

At least the battalion of Russian T-80U tanks, which were loaded onto railway platforms in the Voronezh region, can be transferred to the border with Ukraine, Bloomberg reports from referring to the British company Jane's, which specializes in the analysis of military information. Its experts suggest that military equipment, presumably, will be sent to the Pogonovo training ground in the Khokholsky district of the Voronezh region.

Jane & # 39; s noted that, unlike the situation in the spring of 2021, when the movement of Russian forces also caused concern in the West, this time the equipment is being deployed secretly, at night.

Previously, Jane & rsquo; s reported about the appearance of additional tanks and artillery also in the Bryansk and Kursk regions, which border Ukraine.

RBC sent a request to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

On November 7, the press secretary of the Ukrainian president, Sergei Nikiforov, said that Kiev had no data on the concentration of Russian troops on the border “ above the normal level. '' He wondered why information about the movement of military equipment was spread by The Washington Post, which referred to American and European officials.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, in turn, said that the movement of Russian military equipment and army subdivisions on the territory of the country & mdash; this is exclusively a matter of Russia, and the latest publications about their appearance near the border of Ukraine are “ not even worth commenting. ''

Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense called the “ military development of Ukraine ''; the upcoming joint exercises of the American fleet and units of Bulgaria, Romania, Georgia and Ukraine in the Black Sea. The military department suggested that we are talking about the study of the alleged theater of military operations against the background of Kiev's preparation of a military operation in the southeast of the country.

From Minneapolis to London and across the globe, protests continue over racism, police brutality, inequality and injustice. 

To understand what activists see as a moment of global solidarity, The World’s host Marco Werman spoke with two of them.

Siana Bangura is an author, poet and organizer in London, and Miski Noor is an organizer and writer with Black Visions Collective in Minneapolis. They’ve each been pushing for changes to policing in their cities for years.

Marco Werman: I would just like to know first, what have the past two to three weeks or so been like for both of you? Miski, what has it been like for you? 

Miski Noor: It’s been, you know, an incredibly painful time in Minneapolis, seeing our folks be attacked and being attacked ourselves by police and white supremacists, being overtaken by the National Guard and having so many of our community spaces burnt. What we’re trying to do is really build this city. We want justice for George Floyd, and we know justice isn’t enough. Which is why we’ve been saying that now is the time to defund the police and invest in the community. Right now, what I was doing before getting on with you is listening to the Minneapolis City Council vote to disband the police department, right? So it’s been hard, and it’s been incredibly transformational, and it’s been such a powerful, powerful thing to witness. 

Siana, London has seen what’s going on in the States in Minneapolis. What have you been feeling the last two or three weeks? 

Siana Bangura: Firstly, Miski, massive solidarity to you folks. So I just want to thank you for that. And in terms of how we are trying to express solidarity over here, this is a moment of reckoning. So in terms of how I’ve been feeling, I — you know, for the past two weeks I have been in a state of all sorts of emotions, quite frankly, which I think is fair to say for a lot of black people, if not the wider global community, the diaspora. Whatever happens in the US often, if not always, has a knock-on effect on the rest of us.

And I think, you know, I have been banging on for the longest time. This is just a fact of history that — let’s never forget that the UK is the belly of the beast. It’s the racist parents of the USA. And so in my country, people have a really big culture of deflection, of saying it’s not so bad here. “At least, you know, we’re not as bad as the USA.” And it’s like, where do you think they learn everything from right? And so we are now forcing people to take a really long, hard look in the mirror in this country. This particular time, if I may say, feels a little bit different. I do strongly feel that. We’ve never had this in the midst of a global pandemic where in the UK the black communities here have been disproportionately affected by the consequences of the COVID outbreak, right? And then you see that on top of that, in the same way that our siblings in the USA are also disproportionately wildly affected by the COVID outbreak. They are also — the police still have time to also kill you on top of that. And that is clearly unbearable. One big thing we’ve been doing is we’re saying, well, actually, this is a time to reckon with the fact that actually this country also has a prison-industrial complex and this country, also kills black people. So we stand in solidarity but want to you use this moment to also say actually, look in the mirror the UK, your history is disgusting. You’re not innocent either. 

Noor: Yes. I think something that gets lost very easily is the globalness of blackness, right? 

Bangura: Absolutely. 

Noor: And I think that, like, it’s really important to even name just the history of what the police is in this country and what they are intended to do. Right? So black communities are living in persistent fear of being killed by state authorities like the police. And so it’s happening in Minneapolis is not happening just all over the United States, but also all over the world.

So Miski and Siana, I don’t know if this is the first time since the killing of George Floyd that each of you has had the chance to be speaking across borders with another activist in another country about what’s happened since his death. But since you are both here now, what would you ask each other about where the movement goes next? Like, how do you see your work benefiting the other? 

Bangura: Oh, I love that question. These have been great. I’m just really enjoying hearing Miski talk because it just gives me — yeah, It just gives me all of hope. Like I said, we are looking towards the USA, but also we’re looking within ourselves and within our context. Because it’s really important to understand — there are so many similarities, but it’s not the same. And sometimes, in fact, often we get stuck on trying to do the exact same thing that’s happening in the USA here, and it doesn’t work because of the histories. But I guess a question I’m actually really interested in, Miski, is how are you making sure, I suppose, that you’re bringing the community along with you every step of the way and maintaining that trust and clear communication? I don’t know if that makes sense, but yeah.

Noor: I appreciate that question. Right, because it’s a moment of transformation. Right? We are not the same organization that we were two and a half weeks ago. And so it’s about looking outside of ourselves because it’s very easy for this moment for us to all of a sudden feel accountable to everybody and then let everybody down. Right? 

Bangura: Absolutely.

Noor: Yeah, so I think it’s about trying to not aim for perfection, but aim for integrity. 

Miski, as you talk about community-based focus in activism, I want to come back to something you both brought up a few minutes ago. There’s a recent history in the 60s and 70s of black activists in the US connecting globally with Pan-African movements, for example. Do either of you see that the full power of this movement right now is international, or is the center of gravity of organized activism right now at a much more local level dealing with local problems?  

Noor: Siana, you to go first?   

Bangura: Yeah, I think this is really, again, a really good question. And you know what my instinct immediately is, like, of course this is international. And I think the bottom line that we have to be internationalists about vision. But I think it’s not an either-or. And I think I’m trying really hard to make sure we don’t fall into binaries. On the one hand, we need to be thinking internationally, learning from what our siblings all over the globe are doing, because remember actually, we’re talking, you know specifically about the U.S. and the UK, but we know that the impact with George Floyd’s death has had ramifications across the globe. Right? We’ve seen lots of stuff going on. But that said, also, it’s really important now more than ever to be looking locally. 

Miski, your thoughts? 

Noor: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m, like, you know, queer theory. Both and. Both and. You know?! Of course, we need all of it. I mean, we see ourselves responsible to a larger ecosystem of black organizing. Right. The fight’s going to look different on the ground. And our work is more powerful when we’re actually connected to each other. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that anti-blackness is global. right. And so it’s definitely both and. This is local and global. 

There’s so much more to discuss, and we’re going to keep on discussing it, but I just want to finally ask you both. I mean, personally, how hard is this? Like, how do you move forward? How do you find the energy to keep it sustainable? What’s your advice? 

Bangura: Oh gosh. [laughter] This is really hard because it’s been so emotional, so emotional. The first few days, weeks, I just felt the global grief and it was super duper heavy, like, on a personal level, and actually made it very difficult for me to be able to move forward. That said though, I feel like I’ve been like held by the people I’m organizing with and the wider community. And why I can see, although change is slow, but because I think this feels a little different to what we had before. It gives me hope. And I would like to say that, you know, although tearing down statues does not a revolution make. Right? But some of the things I’ve been seeing in the UK it’s just like — even, you know, some symbolic actions, it’s kind of lifted my mood. Like, I want to see more of that stuff, but also remember, that is the symbolism, but it’s the kind of thing I noticed it lifted my mood the minute I saw that. I like seeing the people be like, okay, we’re doing our thing, we’re actually going to be empowered. I also understand this is a lifelong mission, quite frankly. And I’ve signed up for the lifelong mission. So I think I understand it comes at the peaks and troughs. So it’s making sure that we all are clear that we’re in this for the long run. I think that actually is a healthy way to move forward. 

Miski, where do you find the energy?  

Noor: Siana’s answer is so hopeful. I’m like, do we have a choice? [laughter] You know, I mean, it’s incredibly painful to feel the individual grief and loss as a black person, knowing that this is how the system works and is intended to work. And then on top of that, trying to be organizing for the conditions in which this doesn’t happen. And so what’s really been fortifying me is, I think — you know, I’ve learned a lot of lessons over the last five years. I have some real lessons about what it means to take care of our nervous systems. What does it mean to not internalize that? What does it mean to allow myself to cry when I need to and process grief and feelings. To try to be inside a connection, to meditate. And I think, like, the community has really showed up, right, in helping me to actually be able to take care of myself. I think that joy and that the power and the winning and the engagement of my community and the excitement has given me a lot of life. And so I think all of the change — you know, Octavia Butler says, “God is change.” All of that has been also really fortifying.

FIRSE MACHAYENGE REMIX Lyrics and Video Song – Emiway Bantai, Macklemore

Alright we drinkin a lassi
Movin our body
I’m masala with a sauce
And I never take an off day

Chai stand post up no latte
Bidi smoke cloud puff puff
Varanasi selector
Play one of those hits

India you ain’t never seen colors like this
Turquoise and the orange
And the yellow & the pinks
Fell in love as a sunset

Into the abyss grab your waistline
Kiss your neck to the bass line
Hold us slow it down dave brubeck
Take 5 let me do my 2 step

Crossover a.I peel off in the whip
Through a gray sky skkrt skkrt windows up
Watch the world disappear
As we kick up dust

Let the magic of the night go
And do what it does
Never get in a way of somebody
Falling in love.. I’m gone

Fir se machayenge remix bajade public kar ri shor
Meko dekh main machara mere saath mein macklemore
Daru chod ghumenge firenge piyenge hum lassi
Hater log pareshan hai soche kaise hai tu fassi.. Merese

Dil dekh ke pada tha na farak mujhe chehre se
Kisi ki parwah nahin hai muje matlab tere se
Sirf teko milne ke liye nikalta hun mein ghar se
Khulam khula pyaar karenge nahin karenge dar ke

Tere gharwale bhadke toh mana lunga
Jyada din nahin baby teko meri wali banalunga
Chalenge hum trip pe tab khana wana bana dunga
Guitar bajane aata hai pyaara gaana suna dunga

Doosre ke pyaar mein girne se tujhe bacha raha hoon
Sab mujhe bhaav de rahi phir bhi sab ko wata raha hoon
Tere baare mein sabko achi baatein bata raha hoon
Tere liye mummy daddy ko main ghar pe mana raha hoon
Sahi mein..

Wazan thodi meri ghata raha hoon
Tujhe lean body pasand hai
Main healthy khaane chaba raha hoon
Sun ne main aaya hai tu london mein rehti hai
Abhi ke abhi jaake pehli ticket kata raha hoon

Machayenge gaana baj ra global
Bantai ki public full fire yaha koi nahin sober
Sabko ijzat milna chahiye koyi ni yaahan pe naukar
Hasna sikh le varna zindagi bita le ro kar
Marzi teri..

Achi soch rakhta kaam kar bana apna mauka
Seekh un logo se jisne diya tujhe dhoka
Kisne roka tera nauka tu chalega tere daam par
Duniya dekhegi tujhe tu jaake pehle kaam kar

Salam kar bade ko koi kalam bano
Gardi mein safar kiya toh jaake tum udaan bharo
Birthday pe party nahin birthday pe daan karo
Jo bhi ud rele hawa mein kya tum abhi chaand par ho

Tu koshish kar shuruat mein thoda sa suffer hai
Kaam karte saath mein haan rakhna thoda sabar hai
Paisa double hai jab bhi tera waqt aayega
Kisi ki garj na rakhna mehnat karke laayega

India mein bajta tha gaana duniya bajayega
Paisa kamana aasan hai pyaar kaise laayega
Swimming pool chhod apan samandar mein nahayega
Fir se machane bole haan firse machayega..

Sprite Lee – Underdog Lyrics

[Chorus]
I ride with my niggas I ride with the fetty
And my wrist cold like Yeti
All my shit dropping soon you ain’t ready
This is my whip not no Chevy
I wanna ball until I fall
Ima hang my plaques on all the walls
Hit the bitch from the back I never pause
I’m a beast
I know I’m the underdog
Took that molly raw
I don’t wear no [?]
Bitch you ain’t get no salad tossed
I heard y’all niggas shop at Ross
Bitch I only shop abroad
Bitch I’m in London with the ride
I’m at the palace on the yard

[Verse]
Balling on a budget that’s what I was doing last year
I then broke the bank they had to fire the cashier
I got all these white hoes sipping on belvedere
Took a flight to Tampa nigga I feel like a Buccaneer
[?] west coast
I support the animals so I don’t wear no fur
I know I’m the realist nigga coming out the ‘burgh

All my goons got a mask yeah we finna purge
I got all this money I don’t need no friends
Pull up Benji franks You got Abe Lincolns
I been road running with my nigga that my kin
Then I bought some more drip
Boy do you sink or swim

[Chorus]
I ride with my niggas I ride with the fetty
And my wrist cold like Yeti
All my shit dropping soon you ain’t ready
This is my whip not no Chevy
I wanna ball until I fall
Ima hang my plaques on all the walls
Hit the bitch from the back I never pause
I’m a beast
I know I’m the underdog
Took that molly raw
I don’t wear no [?]
Bitch you ain’t get no salad tossed
I heard y’all niggas shop at Ross
Bitch I only shop abroad
Bitch I’m in London with the ride
I’m at the palace on the yard

[Verse 1]
I’m so into you, I can barely breathe
And all I wanna do is to fall in deep
But close ain’t close enough, ’til we cross the line, hey yeah
So name a game to play, and I’ll roll the dice, hey

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh baby, look what you started
The temperature’s rising in here
Is this gonna happen?
Been waiting and waiting for you to make a move
Before I make a move

[Chorus]
So, baby, come light me up, and, baby, I’ll let you on it
A little bit dangerous, but, baby, that’s how I want it
A little less conversation and a little more touch my body
‘Cause I’m so into you, into you, into you
Got everyone watchin’ us, so, baby, let’s keep this secret
A little bit scandalous, but, baby, don’t let them see it
A little less conversation and a… my body
I’m so into you, yeah

[Bridge]
Tell me what you came here for
‘Cause I can’t, I can’t wait no more
I’m on the edge with no control
And I need, I need you to know
You to know, oh yeah

[Chorus]
(So, baby, come light me up [Light me up])
(And, baby, I’ll let you on it)
(A little bit dangerous [A little bit dangerous])
(But, baby, that’s how I want it [How I want it])
(A little less conversation and a little more touch my body)
(‘Cause I’m so into you, into you, into you)
Let me hear y’all one more time, oh babe
So, baby, let’s keep it secret
A little bit scandalous, yeah
Oh baby
London, I wanna see y’all jump, let’s go

[Outro]
(So come light me up)
So come light me up, my baby
(Little dangerous)
A little dangerous, my boy
Oh yeah, yeah
(‘Cause I’m so into you, into you, into you)

Baguette Chopard, it’s factory setted (Bling)
Run up on Wop and you’ll never forget it

I want the cash, I don’t want the credit
Went in my stash and gave me a budget
My pockets so budgy that bitches is callin’ me handsome
That then, was callin’ me ugly (Huh?)

Walking round in London in the Purple Moncler
Money long, blowing here, I dont care
Ain’t that bitch my girlfriend standing over there
She walked over to my chair

Then she start to dirty dance
Her hands down my pants
If it sound like my name dirty dan

She ’gon twerk for these bands
She ‘gon hit a handstand
Ima text ricoche, hit him in the hands man

Drip to hard my Saint Laurent

She ’gon f*ck all night long
Ready set go
Blow up in that bitch face
I confetti that hoe
150 for a show
Count the fetty then im gone
150 big gang [?] coming strong

She said she wanna love me
I told her to leave my heart alone
I hate it when I start to care
About these evil ass hoes
I know that they dont love me
They just want my fucking cash flow
These hoes manipulate to gather money, and thats wrong
But who am I to judge?
I used to rob and juug
And hit them shots
I can’t blame another mother fu*ker for doing the same thing
Especially when you broke, thats the worst thing
If you offer me ebay money you will not make [?]

Oh, ain’t that the truth
Im preaching, having church, oh
Finna bag these hoes, taking they shirts off
Even teach they self how to squirt, oh
I had to expose them guess how much —

But i may have to shoot to kill
N*ggas hate that im winning
Now they dont wanna see me live
They too lazy to get it
Its a lot of shit to give up
Just stay focused on your mission
And dont ever ever give up
Codeine on ice really fucking up my liver
Finally scared to be overdosing
I know that shit give me shivers
But dont worry, tell em god got me
Just an uplifter
Deep inside sometimes I wonder if God can even hear
But imma keep praying
Imma keep hope up
Imma keep face (what else)
[?] Pistol tote tucked
Shoot em in the face
If he get in the way of the cake

All up in the back ’cause the chicks keep flocking
All that gossip in 10 years, stop it

Yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: Meek Mill]
In the trap, hang in places that you can’t go
Glock .40, he got smokey, yeah, the draco
Thousand nights on that corner eating egg-rolls
Bad bitch Puerto Rican, look like J. Lo, woah
They tried to extort me, I ain’t pay though
Only thing I gave ’em was a halo
A-hole, Uber on the way, ho
Fuck her from the back, put my thumb all in her A-hole
I got bands for real, diamonds on me, they dance for real
All these sticks and drums, banging like we in a band for real
I got cake, I stay humble, know I’m the man for real
I got hitters, we don’t rumble, tell your mans to chill
Yo, who’s mans is this? (Somebody come get this nigga)
All up in my section Instagramming shit
I be with some real hitters, they ain’t with that camera shit
‘Cause they really out here in the field and they be slammin’ shit

[Chorus: NAV]
Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap
Giving head taps, left tats, tats, tats
They said that they were with it but it’s cap, cap, cap
Aimin’ at your fitted, push it back, back, back
Work, work, work, work, work
One phone call get you whacked, whacked, whacked
Try to slap me, we gon’ let it slap, slap, slap
Cross a line, it’s too late, you can’t take it back, back, back (Yeah)

[Verse 2: NAV]
They got my brother locked inside a cage (In a cage)
Take them shackles off his feet, he ain’t a slave (Slave)
Growing up in the hood, you’ll learn how to behave (‘Have)
How we gon’ learn to stack if we ain’t got nothing to say? (Say)
Got a little bad bitch, got some work done on her butt (On her butt)
Gotta catch another flight as soon as I catch my nut (If I nut)
Just being honest, Meek was the first to show me love (Show me love)
And the first time that I seen a Maybach was with cuz (Cuz)
Gettin’ these bags, we model, I tell the opps it’s up (It’s up)
Got wedding bands but I still don’t got a bitch to cuff
In every city I go, they already know what’s up (What’s up)
I got resources, I could get straight to the plug

Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap
Giving head taps, left tats, tats, tats

Try to slap me, we gon’ let it slap, slap, slap

Dave – Drama Lyrics

[Intro: Dave’s Elder Brother Christopher]
Like man was saying, bruv
Many nights man prayed, bruv
Somewhere someone’s gonna help me through this, man
Someone is gonna help bring me out of this shit, y’know?
Time, it took a while for man to recognise, boy, who you were gonna send
And you know what? Mans, I’m very proud
I’m very happy to see it’s one of my own init, y’know?
And boy, I know none of this is easy, y’know?
I’m just proud to be, to be witnessing what’s going on, man, y’know?

[Verse: Dave]
Look
I don’t know where to start
But I just done my first psychodrama
And I hope the world hears my craft
I’m excited man, I pray you get to hear my craft
From our childhood, our mother didn’t hear me laugh
I’m presenting you the future, I don’t fear my past
I ain’t got a tattoo anywhere near my arms
But best believe on my sleeves is where I wear my heart
Do you know how easy it is to be a sinner?
How many losses you need before you can be a winner?
Reason with a criminal that needs to eat a dinner
Is it survival of the fittest or is he a killer?
Losing dad was big, losing you was even bigger
Never had a father and I needed you to be the figure
We’re forgetting that we had a brother that was even bigger
We were figures just tryna figure out who could be a figure
My brothers never spoke to each other when I was growing up
I remember tryna to build a bridge, I wasn’t old enough
I pray I hold the game for as long as you man can hold a grudge
Years went by I know it’s fucked, I had to hold it up for mummy on my own
I know it’s tough, I got the coldest blood
I remember when you got sentenced and I was throwing up
It’s like they took a piece of my freedom when I had opened up
I just lost the only fucking person that I idolised
For my entire life I copied you down to the finest line
Bro, I got a flame in my mind I’m trying to firefight
The pill I had to swallow wasn’t bitter, it was cyanide
I learn over time, separation issues I describe
Are probably the reasons that I struggle feeling anything
I ain’t got a vision of a marriage or a wedding ring
It’s world domination in music or it ain’t anything
I’m obsessed, focused on the objective
Tell a don yes, disagree, I object
Used to treat my women like an object
Girls want a monster come and see I’m the Loch Ness
Settle for a lot less
I just hope you’re proud of me brother, it’s been a long stretch
You’re my hero and prior to this, I was living on the edge like a house on a cliff
But now I’m living in the present like my house was a gift
I’m going psycho, this scene’s mine bro
Rappers wanna diss me, it’s only online though
They put the mic and soft in the micro
Soft? Not I, bro
Swimming’s the only time I can lie though
And lemme be genuine
Anybody rich my age is American, kicking ball or inherited
It only makes sense I’m independent knowing everything it happened how I’m telling it
You niggas aren’t getting it
I’m coming from the struggle I survived and I’m still here
Used to bump trains that’s two ways, I don’t feel fear
I don’t know trust, I know a tight bond will tear
Like a good wig, I can’t tell you if it’s real here
I’m from south London, brother, people getting killed here
You can make a mill’ but you can lose it if you’re still here
I lost over 30 grand to family, I’m still here
The word don’t appeal to me, you steal from me I’m still here
Bro, I wasn’t made for this
I don’t get a break, but I’m aware of what breaking is
I wish you could take a hint as well as you can take the piss
I don’t even speak to our brother, man, I just pray for him
It’s never too late for him
Life is at it’s craziness, walls started caving in
All the things I’ve seen would turn a theist, atheist
I didn’t get 99 marks in English, I was faking it
I got 98 ‘cause I don’t know what a vacation is
If you saw God what would you say to him?
If given the chance would you have taken it?
If you could rewind time what would you change in it?
Do you believe in what an angel is?
Furthermore, do you believe in what the devil is?
Do you believe that I can illustrate what Streatham is, then break the fourth​ wall and base Lesley on my relatives?
I’m grateful for my life because I aimed for this
Every bad moment every single fucking day of this
People looking at me, that’s what fame can bring
But to understand the stairs, you take steps then retrace the shit
I tell my circle, the future’s ours, we’re shaping it
The past is just the reason I had came to this
I thank God for the pain because it made me this

[Outro: Dave’s Elder Brother Christopher]
I don’t know if you remember those days, bruv
In them days, there was one night in particular, bruv
Came home and for some reason man put on a beat
We were just in the front room, freestyling, bar for bar
I don’t even know how old you was these times, bruv
Probably about, hmm, ten? Ten, nine?
Yeah, man, if I think about it now, think about the transition
Them days there, you had no bars
But to see the stuff you’re doing today, proper man, you what I mean?
Thinking man’s definitely blessed to see how the whole thing’s come together
From time, I think it was ‘JKYL+HYD’ man, you played man that one there
Man was thinking, “Yo, this one here is a banger”, bruv
I remember when I heard that one live on the airwaves for the first time bruv, we was pumping it
Man come to my door was like, “Rah man, that’s a bit loud you know?”
I’m like, “Fam, that’s my brudda”
He was like, “Yeah?”
And you know, on your birthday, man sent you a little card
And it begins
‘Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The Lord has not chosen these.”
So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered, “but he’s tending the sheep.”
Samuel said, “Send for him, we will not sit down to eat until he arrives.”
So he sent and had him brought in. He was ruddy, with a fine appearance and handsome features
And then the Lord said, “Rise and anoint him, he’s the one.”‘
Bro, you know what that means?
Say no more man

Whitney Houston – Love Is A Contact Sport Lyrics

[Intro]
Contact Contact
Huh huh huh huh hoo huh yeah

[Verse 1]
You’ve been avoiding me
Like a cat trying to dodge a dog
I never see ya shine
You’re as cold as the London fog
You claim you want my love
Well I wouldn’t know by the way you behave
If you want to feel the thrill of my touch
You better come out of your cave

[Pre-Chorus 1]
It’s so perplexing
Why you fight it won’t you try it
Love’s electric
Turn me on and see

[Chorus]
Love is a contact sport
You gotta move in time
If you want to do it right
Here I am
Love is a contact sport
You gotta act untamed
If you want to play the game
So grab my hand, SLAM!

[Verse 2]
I hate to sound aggressive
But I’m tired of waiting for your move
Cut the formalities
Cause you’ve got a few things to prove
If you really want my love
I need to feel it down deep from within
Don’t make me wait too long
I’m ready now come and stroke my skin

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Well all this talking
Worthless chatter just don’t matter
Time for stalkin’
Come get next to me

[Chorus]
Love is a contact sport
You gotta move in time
If you want to do it right
Here I am
Love is a contact sport
You gotta act untamed
If you want to play the game
So grab my hand, SLAM!

[Interlude]
Hey boy
Why dontcha come on over
So we can make that contact
Contact you dare

[Bridge]
It’s so perplexing
Why you fight it won’t you try it
Love’s electric
Turn me on you’ll see
Contact!

[Chorus]
Love is a contact sport
You gotta move in time
If you want to do it right
Here I am
Love is a contact sport
You gotta act untamed
If you want to play the game
So grab my hand, SLAM!

Waka Flocka Flame – Frosted Leaf Lyrics

[Intro]
Whoo Kid
DatPiff.com world premiere

[Chorus: Watch The Duck]
I’ma throw some good vibes out there
So won’t nobody be trippin’
Like if Freaknik was mixed with Woodstock and wasn’t no cops
‘Cause wasn’t nobody trippin’
Oh, don’t you wanna go there?
Don’t you wanna go there?
So won’t nobody be trippin’

[Verse: Tony Yayo]
Hawaiian snow under the microscope
Greenhouse, Red Light, about to eat smoke
No laws, I feel so free there
Zero violence, weed all in the air
I’m ’bout to hit Bob Marley’s shop
Roll a big spliff with some Guinness style
No cameras in the Red Light
And them girls get tested by the government, and every night
Eat a weed brownie and catch a sex show
Guy in a gorilla suit fuck a nympho
Roll up, I feel so free here
Bongs made of ice, smoke the best weed here
But it’s time to leave here
Next stop London, bruv got a nigga in
And I left 50 bags in the ‘telly
To call my office up, just to fuckin’ tell me

[Interlude: Tony Yayo]
You know, they thought I was booked for two more days in Amsterdam in the Grand Hotel
I left 50 bags of weed there, you know, but…
They called me up to tell me I left my weed
I was in London, I can’t bring that shit on the plane, you know?
Whoo Kid

[Chorus: Watch The Duck]
Wanna go somewhere
Where all my niggas is just livin’
Like if Freaknik was mixed with Woodstock and wasn’t no cops
‘Cause wasn’t nobody trippin’
Oh, don’t you wanna go there?
(Fuckin’ up the vibe in here, never fuckin’ up the vibe in here)
Don’t you wanna go there?
(Fuckin’ up the vibe in here, never fuckin’ up the vibe in here)
Don’t you wanna go there?
(Fuckin’ up the vibe in here, never fuckin’ up the vibe in here)
Don’t you wanna go there?
(Fuckin’ up the vibe in here, never fuckin’ up the vibe in here)
So won’t nobody be trippin’

[Outro: Watch The Duck & Waka Flocka Flame]
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Brick Squad!
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Whoo Kid
Never fuckin’ up the vibe in here
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Never fuckin’ up the vibe in here

Comethazine – GUSHER GUTS Lyrics

[Intro]
Bitch, yeah, ayy, bitch
Is that Shoki on the beat?
I just left London, I just left London
Ayy, yeah (Bitch), ayy, ooh (Yeah)

[Chorus]
I just left London, I’m money thumbin’
Drive the streets with these bands like it’s nothin’
.38 to the gut made ’em vomit
Sorry lil’ nigga, you had this shit comin’
Catch up with him, that’s the end of discussion
He got strawberry guts and burst like a Gusher
Niggas want beef, I got ketchup and mustard
Pull up on him, shoot a shot at his sweatshirt
I just left London, I’m money thumbin’
Drive the streets with these bands like it’s nothin’
.38 to the gut made ’em vomit
Sorry lil’ nigga, you had this shit comin’
Catch up with him, that’s the end of discussion
He got strawberry guts and burst like a Gusher
Niggas want beef, I got ketchup and mustard
Pull up on him, shoot a shot at his sweatshirt

[Verse]
The whole damn gang, dumb, dumb, and dumbass
Pull up on them and I’m letting the gun blast
I got like forty-five left in this Glock
This is my mop and it hold fifty shots
I took that Lambo’ right off of the lot
And did the dash, I had to run from the cops
Double the cup that I’m pourin’ the drop
And drink it fast, bitch, I be sippin’ a lot
Put fifty-thousand dollars on a watch
And spent the bag just to look down at this clock
Watch me turn up on these niggas
Got ’em mad, now they wishin’ a nigga would stop
When I run down on a nigga
I do him bad, yeah I knock his ass right out his socks
Don’t try to clown me, lil’ nigga
You wasting your time and I wish that you niggas would stop

[Chorus]
I just left London, I’m money thumbin’
Drive the streets with these bands like it’s nothin’
.38 to the gut made ’em vomit
Sorry lil’ nigga, you had this shit comin’
Catch up with him, that’s the end of discussion
He got strawberry guts and burst like a Gusher
Niggas want beef, I got ketchup and mustard
Pull up on him, shoot a shot at his sweatshirt
I just left London, I’m money thumbin’
Drive the streets with these bands like it’s nothin’
.38 to the gut made ’em vomit
Sorry lil’ nigga, you had this shit comin’
Catch up with him, that’s the end of discussion
He got strawberry guts and burst like a Gusher
Niggas want beef, I got ketchup and mustard
Pull up on him, shoot a shot at his sweatshirt

Polish your ass, polish your stomach
And polish your face (polish your face)
Stack up the cash, go buy Richard Mille, that’s all I can say (woo!)

Peter Sarstedt – Mulberry Dawn lyrics

[Verse 1]
John Lennon was there, shouting on the king of London
Around Mark Place Square I remember it was spring in London
But no one seem to notice what the world was coming to
It didn’t really matter, we didn’t have a clue
We ran head long, to the Mulberry Dawn

[Verse 2]
O the Connies and girls looking at the land the big one
And the fella’s stood back wishing they could stand the big one
But they were beautiful girls and everything was great
And back in the apartment you never had to say it
First the loving, then the Mulberry Dawn

[Chorus]
Summer seasons in Blackpool autographs on the pier
Some where there for the glory and some where there for the beer
Oh dear, oh dear
Now coming out of the business the rumblings have changed
Now nothing was for certain and everything was strange
It was so strange, so strange

[Bridge]
We’re flowing like seeds in the wind, arrows straight to the mark
Love comes in to it’s own, and sorrows wait in the dark
And the children are born, to the Mulberry Dawn

[Verse 3]
John Lennon was there, shouting on the king of London
In Roger’s old Jag, driving ’round the swing in London
Oh breaking with convention, yes that was all the rage
And all you really wanna do is get back on the stage
And play your music, to the Mulberry dawn
First the loving, then the Mulberry Dawn

RAYE – Ambition lyrics

(feat. Stormzy)

[Verse 1: Raye]
In August, I’m staring at rain clouds
A descendant of London
I watch as people are falling like rain
Encouraged to seek other options
I don’t need other options
You either eat it or you spit it out
You’re either silent or you run your mouth
You breathe in or you breathe out
I’m so cold but the sun’s up
Like it’s winter all year, oh
So welcome you to it now
Oh, wait, that was my sound
Could you dig it up or sweat it out?
Could you give it up and sit down?
But after that, I hope you know your place
Cause you just gave me the damn crown

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Bridge: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing
I wanna know that I got myself
I wanna ride my money like a wave
My money like a wave, my money like a wave, yeah

[Verse 2: Raye]
I want the future, I want the best view
I’d like to buy all my day ones a house too
Collie, Ben, Jodie, I got you
I’ve got a list of everything I would do
Make that dumb guy regret what he did do
Then he’ll be calling up my phone like “I miss you”
Then I’ll be like “haha, you can go now
Cause you didn’t wanna know when I told you
I’m gonna make something of my life”
Believe that, yeah babe
I’ve got God, he is on my side
And I’m a child of ’97 so I plan to be on time
And I’m ahead of this game
Yes, I were meant for this life, oh

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
You know I only phone back
If I know that it’s the money calling
Tell ’em bitches “do not phone back
I am in the studio recording”
Mummy, listen when I’m talking
Mummy, listen, it’s important
I wasn’t gonna tell you, but I thought I’d let you know
That I just got us both a mortgage
Now it’s top floor with these fancy reservations
I don’t even like it, I’m just here for observations
Tryna tell the difference from my people and my pagans
Cuh’ the last time that I slipped, I had a sticky situation
I will never slip again, you can put that on my savings
They wait for me to fall, I keep on waiting
This feeling is amazing, how’s it feel to hate the kid
But deep inside, you know you rate him? Man, that shit must be frustrating

[Chorus: Raye]
And I’m gonna wear it proud
Watch me as I wear it now
I’mma ride this money like a wave
This money like a wave, this money like a wave

[Bridge: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing
I wanna know that I got myself
I wanna ride my money like a wave
My money like a wave, my money like a wave, yeah

[Outro: Raye]
Now I made it this far, but this far ain’t nothing
If we’re talking ambition, I think you should know that I don’t wanna settle for nothing

XYLØ – Alive lyrics

[Verse 1]
Wake up ’cause I’m on my way
2 AM in the cab and it’s only Monday
And the driver knows my name
Yeah, I hope that I am on your mind
My head’s out the window tonight
Staying up till the club shut down
Yeah, I work too much so I had to get out
Tell me where you wanna go
Back to your place, I don’t mind
My head’s out the window tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna go home
Let’s go somewhere we’ve not been before
We could get high on the beach
Or fly to London or Tokyo
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive

[Chorus]
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together

[Verse 2]
And you look so good right now
At a secret place that we go to downtown
You’re the one that I won’t let go
It feels so wrong, but it’s so right
My head’s out the window tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna go home
Let’s go somewhere we’ve not been before
We could get high on the beach
Or fly to London or Tokyo
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive

[Chorus]
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together

[Bridge]
I don’t wanna go home
Let’s go somewhere we’ve not been before
We could get high on the beach
Or fly to London or Tokyo
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive
I come alive when we’re together
I’m alive, I’m alive

[Chorus]
I come alive when we’re together
I come alive when we’re together
When we’re together I come alive
When we’re together I come alive
I come alive when we’re together
I come alive when we’re together
When we’re together I come alive
When we’re together I come alive
I come alive when we’re together
