Here I Am (Full Lyrics)

BK-One

Here’s a fresh collab for your Saturday afternoon. Brother Ali’s DJ BK-One is hopping behind the boards for his upcoming LP Radio do Canibal, and “Here I Am” is the first leak off the project featuring Phonte, Brother Ali & The Grouch.

If this is any indication of the album, I’m dumb excited for it! Here’s the release:

Better known as Brother Ali’s DJ, BK-One takes his years of experience as a DJ and puts on his producer hat joining forces with up and coming Twin Cities beatsmith Benzilla to craft a Brazilian musical bed for some of Hip Hop’s most engaging MC’s. Rádio Do Canibal features appearances by Scarface, Slug (Atmosphere), Black Thought (The Roots), Brother Ali, Raekwon (Wu-Tang Clan), Murs (Living Legends), Phonte (Little Brother), Haiku D’ Etat (Aceyalone, Myka 9 & Abstract Rude), Blueprint, P.O.S. (Doomtree), The Grouch (Living Legends), I Self Devine, Toki Wright, Aby Wolf and The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.

This one’s got a fresh summer BBQ feel with a groovin’ bassline and sparkling chimes. I hooked up the download link and typed up the full lyrics below.

Shouts to the homie BMUSE at Always Hustle for the heads up, Enjoy!

BK-One ft. Phonte, Brother Ali & The Grouch – Here I Am

Lyrics:

Phonte

Back in the day, they used to say I was a man-child
Moms looked at me, was like “Oh you a man now?”
Taught me to walk like a warrior, eyes up, shoulders back
Lookin’ like a aggin ’bout to stand trial
Made me exactly who I am now
It made me one of the livest aggins walkin’ and realest aggins spittin’ hands down
Taught me to stand down
And always man up
‘Cause then I’d never give in to a hand-out
One man army slash rhymer martyr
Don’t need a little guac, I need the whole avacado
That bullshit they play ain’t got nothin’ to do with ‘Te
That’s Maury Povich rap, homie I am not the father
And I am not to bother
With those who don’t do the real
I be on that Sugar Hill, no business with a Carter
My purpose is to separate the classic from the fodder
‘Te bring it, and make you sing it like the alma mater
Let’s go!

Chorus:

Like the way I move, like the way I groove out on the floor
Like the way I walk, like the way, yeah it’s all yours
Make the fellas rock, make the ladies sing, girl that’s my jam
Except nothin’ less ’cause if you want the best, then here I am

Brother Ali

Yeah baby, here I’m is
They say Ali bout his, he’ll never be outdid
Fuck bein’ half great, I got to be five-fifths
Everybody clap your hands to the beatbox kids
I believe in this shit
Could never be opposite
If I didn’t, I would not and try to eat off of this
They talkin’ bout the greatest MC’s ever lived
Tryina’ give ’em good reason to put me on that list

Shit, you ain’t in this discussion
You simply interruptin’
I’m as good as gone, y’all ain’t good for nothin’
My stomach grumblin’, isn’t it?
Man we eatin’, y’all are just bitin’, that’s inconsiderate
Quit your nibblin’, nobody’s feelin’ it
You beatin’ a dead horse, that’s not killin’ it
We livin’ this, y’all are visitin’
Get a grip, it’s never too late for you to fix your shit
It ain’t set in stone ’til you dead and gone
Don’t want ’em sayin’ stud walked tough but could’ve flown
So when the sun rise, the shine get on his grind
He could look down and smile and see that I’m on mine
.. Phonte, out, yeah!

Chorus

The Grouch

Have you ever seen a dreamer lock his dreams up?
Sabatoged himself like his thoughts don’t mean enough?

Well I ain’t tryina’ be that, you got me cleaned up
Can mix the yellow with the blue and get the green stuff
Ain’t no time to be scared and sad
What I gots much rarer and that
I do care but in fact
I don’t care what you think
Though I been there before, I now know more
I more know me
I’m livin’ to my full capacity

Tryina’ spill a little game and soak a splash or three
Focus past the obvious, ask of me
More than ya average, half a G
‘Cause I could hear the birds chirpin’ and feel the words workin’
Whether curb surfin’ or smokin’ herb surfin’
Today you’ll catch a wave
Let your guard and be free or that’s a slave
.. And this is true!

Chorus
