“Sunday Church” è il nuovo omaggio di Sicknature a “Yo! MTV Raps”

Nell’Agosto del 1988 veniva trasmessa la prima puntata di “Yo! MTV Raps”, storico programma dell’emittente televisiva americana che andò in onda per 7 anni, prima di essere definitivamente chiuso nell’Agosto del 1995.

Lo show consisteva nella trasmissione di due ore di video, interviste, performance live che vennero trasmesse per la bellezza di 1.830 episodi. Inizialmente il programma venne presentato da Fab 5 Freddy.

Oggi Sicknature –  produttore ed emcee danese degli Snowgoons, affiliato ad Army Of The Pharaohs ed alla Coka Nostra – pubblica il suo personale omaggio allo Show, intitolato “Sunday Church”, scritto e prodotto da lui stesso.

Verse 1 Before tour offers would hit the mail / Some of the friends would swim in powder, hit the scales / The same friends turned fake, shaking that tinkerbell / Me? I thank God that I could rip a mic and give them hell / Look, I was lost at sea in a paper boat / Looking for solid ground, eager to shape some hope / Created poems, that was my addiction, so I stayed at home / While so called friends were roaming the shaky roads / They showed their true stripes and quickly bailed / And they shipped themselves into a shipwreck tale / While this kid set sail, got away from f*ckers that were so toxic they could probably sh*t chemtrails / A carefree bunch of Goldilocks with hunger for bear meat / F*ck em, cause T Money was on that squared screen / Stayed near my VCR to watch all the rap heat when broken, started flowing, somehow that repaired me (I guess)

Chorus: Some stay with their curse, I got away from the hurt, made my lane and got great at taping a verse / What I say is in a way I was purged cause Yo MTV Raps every Sunday was my church (Yeah)

Verse 2 Before tour offers would hit the mail / My old man found a bottle, thought it would wish him well / He is still serving life inside a glassy prison cell / Me? I thank God that I could rip a mic and give them hell / Yo! MTV Raps provided the nasty rhythims / Inspired, the fire was burning, I felt a transition / From being sloppy to being mad driven / Till I heard that demons gave my pops another alcohol baptism / I lost creative transmission plus I was terrified that the same demons would reside inside my messy mind / When times are tough that sh*t is verified / But not jeopardizing this music is where the treasure lies / My pops will probably never take the trip to get clean / And the demons will never stop their whisper to me / But lucky me, I was presented a dream / What if Dr Dre & Ed Lover had never been on that screen (I guess that)

Chorus: Some stay with their curse, I got away from the hurt, made my lane and got great at taping a verse / What I say is in a way I was purged cause Yo MTV Raps every Sunday was my church (Yeah)

Nel frattempo approfittiamo per ricordarvi che Sicknature ha recentemente pubblicato un lavoro strumentale dal titolo “Back To The Beatcave”, con 12 pezzi davvero potentissimi.
