    Great track. I still haven't heard this album in its entirety and I really should.

    It's funny how Nas still looks like a teenager, even if he's in his 40s now :D

    Two things I've been meaning to post in this thread:

    Anybody hear the latest from Kendrick Lamar? It's called untitled unmastered and seems like leftover material from To Pimp a Butterfly. It's a bit more stripped down and has a much darker tone. Still really high quality stuff, I particularly like the last track which he performed on Fallon awhile back:

    Cool idea too, instead of going on these talk shows and playing King Kunta or whatever his latest single is, he premiers a brand new song that hasn't been heard before.

    I've also really been digging the new Anderson .Paak album, Malibu. Has a similar jazz/blues/r&b influence as To Pimp a Butterfly, but more traditional roots music than fusion and funk. Anderson also sings more (and better) than Kendrick. Completely different flow and style, but if you like the musical style of TPAB, Malibu isn't too far off. Here he is in an electric performance on Colbert doing a medley of two songs from the album.

    I watch Colbert almost daily and yet missed out on that performance. What a talent. Very good vocals, Kendrick's singing is no comparison imo, different level. Beat the shit out of those drums, too.

    I had to look up why this was so bad..They're a hip-hop collective from the early 90s founded in California, USA, They're hopefully oblivious to the UK slang...

    I think they're just taking it to mean "for the time being" or "for the one present purpose"

    Shit, that's good :ok:

    [Verse 1: Killah Priest]
    Guns, shootouts and crack sales
    Black males who pack jails, trapped in Hell
    No peace, cold streets, surrounded by police
    This whole week, buildings with no heats
    No lights and gas pipes with slow leaks
    Dog fights and lowlife throw dice
    The whole night thieves creeping in the midnight evenings
    We saw through the misty regions
    Go to your house, take a vial for the demons
    Moonlit, the lunar eclipse
    Prophets stand in the midst of the seven candlesticks
    I can't take it, beauty that was once sacred
    Is now getting facelifts, fake tits
    And fake lips, cold embraces
    Memory erases, from the slave ships
    My princess, I used to spot her from a distance
    Holding my infant, burning incense
    The moment intent for her to step into my white tents
    Now we step in precincts for your ebony prince
    The smell of frankincense, once treated like a Pharaoh
    With royal apparel, anointed with myrrh and aloe
    We used to wallow amongst the mallows
    We had herd sheep and cattle, now we battle
    Used to pass over brooks of Kidron
    Towers of Lebanon, the pool of Gershom
    We used to sing songs upon Mount Hebron
    How is gold turned to bronze and shhh
    How is gold turned to bronze
    We was the wisest and the richest, now we turned to snitches
    Women turn to bitches, in the time of harvest
    We was the smartest, worshipped Wisdom like the Goddess
    Now we act retarded, forsook the Wisdom of the Fathers
    We used to have a thousand flagons of wine
    In Palestine, now we drink Ballentine
    And raise up in the violent mind
    We used to have a hundred measures of oil
    Eighty measures of wheat and barley, we live Godly
    Listening to Bob Marley, before the devils robbed me
    Chasing us through the African safaris

    [Chorus: Killah Priest]
    From Then Till Now
    What goes up must come down
    What goes down comes back around again
    Where it all began, began, began, began
    From Then Till Now, From Then Till Now, From Then Till Now
    (repeat 2X)

    [Verse 2: Killah Priest]
    Singing holy anthems, lamping with all my handsome grandsons
    Hair long as Samson, inside my gold mansion
    They used to wear purple Pampers
    But now we Black Panthers, some are actors and dancers
    It's funny how the dollar bill have my seeds holla for meals
    Mother swallowing pill
    Roads seem hollow but still, grab a bottle to heal
    It's like a noose of seventh seal over Brownsville
    What's the difference between the ghetto and death row?
    I'm trapped up with kleptos, the Tec blows
    I'm left to say a flow, where the cries echo
    And echo and echo and echo and echoes
    From the Crystal City, near Getti
    Children used to grow on lilies, now they roll up Phillies
    But the Pyramids of Cheops is my weed spot
    Sometimes I eavesdrop in the books of Enoch
    We went from studying epistles of Paul
    Beneath a waterfall, rubbing crystal balls
    But now we spray paint initials on the wall

    On the wall, spray paint initials on the wall

    [Chorus: Killah Priest]
    From Then Till Now
    What goes up must come down
    What goes down comes back around again
    Where it all began, began, began, began
    From Then Till Now, From Then Till Now, From Then Till Now
