Rob Markman – Believe Me



[Intro]
Man, I been moving so fast lately
I just had to get my thoughts out man
I ain’t talk to you in forever
But I got you though man
Shit gonna get better kid, trust

[Verse 1]
What up kid, I know you don’t know who this is
But I took the time to write, so I’m hopin’ you get it
Only time will ever tell if you opened and read it
But if I know you like I do, I won’t even sweat it
You probably up in your room, vibin’ to Nas
Wishin’ for your time, missin’ your mom
Prayin’, hopin’ God will give you a sign
Your brother doin’ his time, dawg he’s doin’ just fine
He gonna get out soon, everything will be cool
He gonna make a few moves, get a house with a pool
And that girl in your school, the one that you got a crush on
She like you too, try not to put a rush on
You wanna get your Puff on, please don’t stop
Thought I told you that we won’t stop (eh, eh, eh, eh)
Don’t ever let ’em tell you what you can’t do
Even when it seems like the world don’t understand you

[Chorus]
It seems that these dreams, they won’t ever come true
Believe me they do
Sometimes you wanna give it up, don’t know what else to do
Yeah, I been there too
They say seein’ is believin’ so you need a few clues
OK, I’m sendin’ you proof
I know it seems that these dreams, they don’t ever come true
Believe me they do

[Verse 2]
You wrote your first raps, everybody laughed
Man fuck ’em all, get in your bag
Oh that’s new slang, I’ll put you on later
Just promise you’ll keep goin’ do me that favor
You gonna rock Barclays, but you don’t know what that is
Imagine MSG, a couple blocks from the crib
Boy, that’s 18,000
Two weeks after droppin’ your album
It’s hard to see the logic in that
All the fans goin’ crazy and your mom in the back
Your fam in the crowd, they all got to see it
Man you gave ’em somethin’ to believe in
You been writin’ like hell, it’s gonna get you to heaven
Oh yeah, they played your record up on Hot 97
You know DJ Enuff, he DJs for BIG
Speakin’ of BIG, hol’ up forget it

[Chorus]
It seems that these dreams, they won’t ever come true
Believe me they do
Sometimes you wanna give it up, don’t know what else to do
Yeah, I been there too
They say seein’ is believin’ so you need a few clues
OK, I’m sendin’ you proof
I know it seems that these dreams, they don’t ever come true
Believe me they do

[Outro]
Whatever you do man
Just don’t give up on that dream man
It’s gonna get crazy
They gonna tell you, you can’t do it
I’m tellin’ you right now everything is possible
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE



Dancehall Artists Reacts To Ninjaman Murder Conviction




The local dancehall fraternity has been reacting to Ninjaman murder conviction earlier this week.

The dancehall legend and his two co-accused are staring down a life sentence after being found guilty for killing 20-year-old Ricardo Johnson in March 2009. The conviction in Jamaica’s Supreme Court sent shock-waves through the dancehall community. Several of his peers in the genre including Bounty Killer, Mavado, D’Angel, and Bling Dawg have shared their reaction. “He was my first DJ Jah know star,” Mavado wrote.

“This is a very sad time for me right now I’ve know Ninja Man to be someone you can talk with in any situation, one that is always quick to resolve problems, especially the ones that often times develop amongst artist in the music industry,” D’Angel wrote on Instagram while asking for the deejay to get a second chance. “I’ve learnt to gain respect for Ninja throughout the years even more because I’ve seen how he helped a lot of people in need all over a man with a BIG heart.”

Bling Dawg wrote a lengthy statement condemning some fans who are attacking Ninjaman amidst his conviction. Bounty Killer repost that statement. “As I read the comments made towards you People are so cruel these days not knowing what truly happen that’s why me stay in a My Rass lane and no chat up to people cause at your low no BODY GIVES A F**K my prayers goes out to the two side of the family affected by this case I’m not a judge and I wasn’t there when whatever happen but I will say your a true legend. I send my blessing to you and the victims family and may god be with you all,” the dancehall deejay wrote.

He was my first DJ Jah know star ?

Nicki Minaj Announced That She Is Going On Tour Next Year


Nicki Minaj announced that she is going on tour next year and she has a couple big surprises coming.

Some fans are already thinking that she may announced her new album soon or perhaps announce that she is dating Nas, which we already know that last one. On Tuesday, Nicki Minaj went on Instagram to get some things off her chest about some recent reports over an interview that she did with XXL where she said that she brought back female rap to the mainstream.

Nicki Minaj was complaining bitterly about the media twisting her words to spark controversy, which she thinks is unfair to her. She clarified what she said and at the end of her lengthy statement on Instagram, she revealed that she will be on tour next year and has some big surprises for her fans coming. “See u guys on tour next year. I got a cpl BIG surprises,” she wrote.

The Young Money rapper is currently working on her new album, a project that she says will be career-defining for her. Over the past few months she has been dropping some hints about the upcoming project but nothing concrete like the title and release date or who will be on the guest list. Nevertheless, her announcing this tour is a clear indication that she will be dropping the album soon.

Nicki Minaj covers T Magazine’s Great Issue where she spoke out about having to work much harder than her male counterparts to get the same recognition. “I had so much going against me in the beginning: being black, being a woman, being a female rapper,” she said. “No matter how many times I get on a track with everyone’s favorite M.C. and hold my own, the culture never seems to want to give me my props as an M.C., as a lyricist, as a writer. I got to prove myself a hundred times, whereas the guys that came in around the same time as I did, they were given the titles so much quicker without anybody second-guessing.”
