[Intro]
Don’t ever fuckin’ play with me
Y’all niggas know, y’all bitches know I’m the fucking queen
You ho bitches know, you dirty bum bitches know (Grrr)
Pooh, you a fool for this one
Got the strings on ’em

[Verse 1]
Woke up, the price of coke up (Woo, woo)
I just hit ’em with the low cut, then call my folks up (Folks)
Somebody ’bout to get poked up, go call a tow truck (Tow)
All that talkin’ out your neck, might just get your throat cut (Ooh, ooh)
This a Mack truck, not a black truck (Woo)
When we move, tell ‘em, “Back up,” click click, clack, duck
Hella bands, pull up, stashed up, super facts up
All you bitches Rosa Parks, uh-oh, get your ass up, uh

[Chorus]
Yikes, I play tag and you it for life (Woo, life)
Yikes (Yikes), you a clown, you do it for likes
Yikes (Yikes), yes, it’s tight, but it doesn’t bite
Grip it right, he be like (Woo)
Yikes, what’s the hype? This is something light (Light, light, woo)
Yikes, outta town on consistent flights
Yikes, work hard, this a different white (White)
Get your life, you bitches ain’t livin’ right (Woo)

[Verse 2]
Yeah (Sheesh, go), I keep two nines, yeah (Sheesh)
You see my face all over that Fendi design, yeah
Soon as niggas press you, boy, you throw up peace signs, yeah
You don’t want that action, pull your cards, you decline, yeah
Uh (Woo, woo), I keep two dimes, yeah (Woo, woo)
Walk up to a bad bitch, be like, “I think you fine,” yeah
I don’t play with demons, Satan, get thee behind, yeah
‘Bout to get fucked up on margarita with two limes, yeah
Ooh, I’ve been the same, ain’t shit changed, this ain’t nothin’ new (Woo)
That pretty frame, diamond chain, what the fuck it do?
Yo, clear the way, it’s some bad bitches comin’ through (Sheesh)
I give two F’s like the letters that are on my shoe

[Chorus]
Yikes, I play tag and you it for life (Woo, life)
Yikes (Yikes), you a clown, you do it for likes
Yikes (Yikes), yes, it’s tight, but it doesn’t bite
Grip it right, he be like (Woo)
Yikes, what’s the hype? This is something light (Light, light, woo)
Yikes, outta town on consistent flights
Yikes, work hard, this a different white (White)
Get your life, you bitches ain’t livin’ right (Ooh)

[Outro]
Bag talk, but ain’t got no mouth for money
Bag talk, hmm
It’s quiet, ain’t no back talk (Grrr)
Quiet, ain’t no back talk

(Lyrics from Genius)

Sharon Van Etten and Bill Callahan to play Folk Medicine benefit concert

Bill Callahan and Sharon Van Etten are among the lineup for the second edition of Folk Medicine, a live-streamed benefit concert for Amazon Basin residents affected by COVID-19. See the full lineup below.

The livestream will take place on Facebook Live and Zoom on Friday July 17 at 1am BST. While the concert can be watched for free on Folk Medicine’s Facebook page, viewers are encouraged to donate by buying a Zoom ticket. All proceeds from ticket sales will be sent directly to Folk Medicine, who have set an initial fundraising goal of $150,000.

“The situation throughout the Amazon Basin is dire as indigenous peoples, already facing centuries of systemic oppression, suffer from illness, lack of food, medical supplies and income due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” organisers said in an Instagram post.

“Medical infrastructure has completely collapsed in many regions and jungle communities are left largely to fend for themselves. Without access to direct aid, people are already dying at alarming rates. We must act now.

“Our initial goal of 150 thousand dollars will support indigenous Amazonians who need money for food, medications, oxygen, and economic relief now and in the coming months. Folk Medicine is currently distributing aid to 35 existing campaigns!”

Green Day

The Eagles, Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses and Green Day are among the bands who have received PPP loans from the US federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program during the coronavirus crisis.

As Rolling Stone reports, data from the Small Business Administration and Treasury Department confirms that the the money will go towards supporting and retaining the artists’ crews and staff during the ongoing crisis.

The Eagles’ loan has been listed under their touring company and will help save 50 jobs.

Larger loans — amounts between $350,000 and $1 million—were received by the Eagles, Pearl Jam, and Disturbed.

From the 660,000 recipients, it’s believed that over 40 musicians and bands received loans for over $150,000, including Weezer, Jason Isbell, Imagine Dragons, Chainsmokers and Nickelback.

Kanye West also received between $2 and $5 million for his Yeezy fashion line to protect 160 jobs.

The details of support received by the US artists comes days after it was confirmed that the UK government will  fund the UK’s arts, culture and heritage industries with £1.57billion to help them “weather the impact of coronavirus”.

The support package, which was announced last week (July 5), will provide music venues, independent cinemas, museums, galleries, theatres and heritage sites with emergency grants and loans.

The money marks the biggest one-off investment in UK culture and follows other measures taken to help companies, institutions and organisations survive during the pandemic, including loans, business rate holidays and the coronavirus job retention scheme. According to a press release, as well as helping businesses to survive, it will “help support employment, including freelancers working in these sectors”.
