December 2013

[Verse 1]
Everyone told me to write a Mandela verse
Like how do describe that losing Mandela hurts
Had a show on Vilakazi when Kiernan tweeted it first
But my twitter brain still waited for Siz to confirm it
He said it wasn't true, but then later we got the word
That we just lost the last giant to ever walk on this earth
Hit the club later that night, but that didn't work
You know it sucks when the party don't jump right after that "worst"
Later had a chat with Dimplez briefly
Homey told me he was shocked cause he couldn't believe it
I was pretty confused cause we knew Mandela been sick
But what he said after is what made me see that he means it
Homie got see him, in fact he got meet him
That morning he remembered that and the story he tweeted
So then I realized how he sees it
Imagine randomly talking about someone and then later their deceased, shit

[Verse 2]
Shit, That kinda took me back to my son
Cause I was tripping about his life that morning that he'd be gone
Talking about how sick he was and there's much to done
I wish I had all this success before his sickness begun
But it was late, however the point I'm trying to make
I can't tribute to Mandela without tributing Obakeng
The album is almost done with one more song to make
Dedicated to his greatness and all that he taught me
I had a great year but it was shitty in the same
One of my friends died without fucking explanation
Too many speculations the Autopsy ain't relating
Now the family hates his friends cause nobody wants to say shit
Starring at his coffin as the sand was tossed away
I cried tears of anger salted up with dashes of pain
On some fuck was going when you died on that day
I saw the same question in his moms eyes and I prayed

[Verse 3]
So I prayed, Dear Lord please take all of her sorrows away
Please help his siblings and his son to grow and maintain
Let us learn from his mistakes so we can conquer the pain
And give all of his best friends all the strength to brave
Had a Merry Christmas but I need a happy new year
Some more amazing shit to gimme happy new tears
Half of you here, should be happy you here
Cause for real, this could my last rap that you hear
I should be enjoying every praise that you send
Popping for a minute and maybe a few secs
Instead I ask, won't you send a dude prayers
Lost some cool people now I'm nervous whose next
Shit, I'm nervous whose next
Lost some cool people now I'm nervous whose next
Fuck it who cares
Let's live in every moment like we know it's one of us and have happy new year

[Hook x2]
To everybody, have a happy new year
Half of you here should be happy you here
Lost some cool people now I'm nervous who next
Fuck it who cares, have a happy new year
