Joey B – Lava Feels

Joey B – Lava Feels

It’s been seven years since Joey B dropped Tonga. The sound has shifted, but Joey is more relevant than ever. “I know hit songs are important, but I genuinely want to make music for my fans. When you listen to Lava Feels you’ll see I’m not there for the hits, I’m here for the culture.”

The culture is hip hop. “I’m a rapper before anything else, I’m a wordsmith.The Ghanaian hip hop community is now growing, in fact it’s been growing for some time.” What Joey is referring to is the shift from hiplife, rapping over highlife-flavored beats, to straight trap, pioneered in Ghana by himself and the likes of Pappy Kojo and Sarkodie, and now spreading to the next generation, with acts like Kwesi Arthur, Kofi Mole and La Même Gang.

“Many people are bored at home, not doing anything. My fans are on my neck for real, each and every day, Joey please release something, literally begging me.“ Lava Feels is Joey’s answer to his fans, a collection of unreleased songs, separate from the album he has been working on. “People sleep on albums. Back in the days, you would digest an album, listen to it for months, even years. That’s how albums become classics. And this is what I want to give my fans. I feel like an outcast in this Ghana music industry. Honestly, I do whatever I have to do to make it here, but I aim beyond.”

Lala Shishi :Stonebwoy – Tomorrow

Lala Shishi :Stonebwoy – Tomorrow

Tomorrow by Stonebwoy talks about how certain individual relate to others when they make it in life after so much hustling on the street.

 

[Intro]
Ei ei ei yeeii
Arrrrrrbwoy BHIM!
Another real life story (yeah)

[Verse 1]
Hustling from Chokor to Mamprobi
From Asaiman to Kotobaabi
We dey burn Under the sun but still give Jah Jah the glory
Well then then then
Sometimes Ebe dog chain i dey carry
Meat pie wura(means seller) i dey rush i dey hurry
Dada ba(means a child who has been pampered by his parents) for where E b like sey kayayo(A name given to women who help people with their loads and get paid in Ghana) i go marry (Anyway)
Weytin be my own
Am not in this alone
Because somebody dey sweat for the air condition E be loan he dey owe

[Hook] 2x
sʒ me de me ti bo bom na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a,
Na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a
Wan na mʒdɔ nu ena wan ʒbʒgyi attitude (Oh Lord Of Mercy)

If I hustle and make it in Life someday

Who will I show love to

Who will get my attitude

[Chorus] 2x
Cos nobody no know
Nobody no know
Knows TOMORROW

[Verse 2]
Hustler never envy another man (No)
Hustler never envy another soul
Cos you never know what ever Jah Plan
But unuh ah go reap whatever you sow
And then be happy for the people who succeed
Because everything that you wish fi dem the same you receive
Kama is a man you can’t deceive
Success is the state of mind don’t be caught up in greed
No matter what you do, the rich man dies
No what you say the poor man dies too
We are hustling but for a while
Some day we ah go fade away

[Hook] 2x
sʒ me de me ti bo bom na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a,
Na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a
Wan na mʒdɔ nu ena wan ʒbʒgyi attitude (Oh Lord Of Mercy)

If I hustle and make it in Life someday

Who will I show love to

Who will get my attitude

[Chorus] 2x
Cos nobody no know
Nobody no know
Knows TOMORROW

[Bridge]
Weytin be my own
Am not in this alone
Because somebody dey sweat for the air condition E be loan he dey owe

[Hook] 2x
sʒ me de me ti bo bom na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a,
Na sʒ one day meyʒ yie a
Wan na mʒdɔ nu ena wan ʒbʒgyi attitude (Oh Lord Of Mercy)[:]

 

Lala Shishi – explain the song, in Ga. Every week, we shed some light on the meaning of current hits in and out of Ghana: many bangers have an underlying message or social commentary, carried out using sophisticated and ever evolving wordplay – an aspect that is vastly lost in translation. The music videos don’t always unlock the true meaning or intricacies of hit songs, and lyrics alone are not always enough to understand the numerous double entendre and wordplays, so… here we go!
