You Will

This week did not come with a song of the week. No song was on repeat. The week passed by too fast sef. I can’t believe it’s already Friday. But worry not boo boos there’s a song of the week. This song however was my jam in January. It’s rap, by Andy Mineo. I heard the cover and downloaded the song. Normally I think covers are better than songs. I love covers. But this song happened to be better than the cover I heard and so was on repeat all January. I even felt bad cos there was nothing like song of the week in January so I thought I won’t ever put up this song but look where we at now!! The lyrics? 

When you see me I’m in uptown baby
What you know about me?
Oh, nothin’ really, well let’s change that
See I came back
I took a break, but now I break that
Formerly Known, yeah, I made that
And them Car-Tunez every Saturday
Get your breakfast tell ’em (play that)
Yeah, I got lines like bar codes
Yeah, I got jokes like Bart Simpson on bar phones (Moe’s Tavern)
How you actin’ dumb on your smartphone?
Fishers of men so I stay lookin’
Catch the nets like I’m straight Brooklyn
Oh, your life so hard
Why don’t you face your problems don’t Facebook ’em
Satan try to make the straight crooked with the porn sites
But I ain’t looking
I got bands that’ll make her dance
That’s a wedding ring for my wife, bling
I’mma say that twice, bling
Ladies if you ain’t got one don’t give him none
True love is waiting and you so worth that
I know you heard some bull crap
But if you headed down the wrong path
Go ahead and turn back
You’re never too far to be made new
They said you damaged goods, that ain’t true
I testify to that I ain’t lyin’, Jack
You could check with my whole crew

Y-O-U owe me nothing, no, nothing [x2]
I know you will [x8]

I know you will [x2]
Even when they say you won’t
I know you will [x3]
Even when they say you can’t
I know you will
No, there’s nothing you can’t do
Nothing in this world too big for you
So when they say you can’t
I know you will [x2]
Even when they say you can’t
I know you will

Some say you can’t, I say that you will
My sin, it cost a grip but Jesus paid the bill
You don’t believe in miracles, I show you why they real
Some rappers don’t got skill but somehow they got a deal, weird
I’m ridin’ around in this airport, flyin’ ’round on my skateboard
And my glasses on like a straight dork
Oh, your money tall, but these days short
I love the haters so I pray for ’em
See them hearts we aim for ’em
So I tell the world and we stay tourin’
And we do it our way, we won’t change for ’em
This ain’t no fast food, you can’t order us
They lookin’ so confused, what’s the formula?
We just really want more of God
Nah, we don’t want more of us
Cause He did it, we givin’ Him thanks
Even when they ain’t awardin’ us
And them strip clubs, money drugs
C’mon cuz, you borin’ us
We heard it all before
And I’m still unimpressed with that sort of stuff
We were made for more though
With them award shows and you thank Christ
That lip service don’t mean nothing if you ain’t about that life

Y-O-U owe me nothing, no, nothing [x2]
I know you will [x8]

I know you will [x2]
Even when they say you won’t
I know you will [x3]
Even when they say you can’t
I know you will
No, there’s nothing you can’t do
Nothing in this world too big for you
So when they say you can’t
I know you will [x2]
Even when they say you can’t
I know you will

You can download the song here

I really love Andy Mineo. I have his whole Heroes for Sale album. My second favorite song is Uno Uno Seis featuring LeCrae.

What do you guys think about rap? I love love rap and I’m thankful and grateful for Christian rappers. Andy Mineo however does not like being called that (a Christian Rapper). Read his interview here. He says being called a gospel rapper stops non-christians from listening to his music which is the whole purpose of his music. I see his point. That’s why Phos is a lifestyle blog and not a Christian blog. He’s just serving God in his music cos God is supposed to be at the center of it all. What then can we then call him? Rapper? and then call the others contemporary rappers? Or faith based rapper? What do you guys think?

P.s: Listen to these songs with headphones on with the volume turned up to the loudest. You’ll thank me later.
