about

The lyrics were written the day before E's sisters wedding to a US Army soldier. Speaking with his brother-in-law who was stationed in Mogadishu, a classic was penned detailing a story of a soldier and his little brother. With the soldier speaking to his little brother from the front lines, the magnitude of the scenario hits home to both of them. The concept and the substance are timeless.

lyrics

Mogadishu

What up black it’s your brother how you doing fool thing cool?
Boys tell me that you be playing pool after school
Best not run up a debt and get my peoples upset at you, make them act a fool
I’m sorry for leaving on the terms I did
But you know ma she acting bug saying that I’d do a bid
Wanting too much in my life with not funds
Saying that I be doing runs acting trifling for fun
So I flashed it’s something I gotta do with my crew
Sipping GM and brew with much adieu
Getting respects that ma dukes she never gave me troop
The only man I wanted in our life was them dead president on loot
That’s why I called to say that I’m a miss you
Last night I joined the army and I’m off to Mogadishu
To be all that I can be and bloom into moms flower
Depart tomorrow 0600 hrs

Hook x2
Hello, hello, hello, hello it’s me again,
I don’t know why I’m calling, feels as though I’m falling
Stress has got me all bent out of shape and oh man
As of tomorrow I'll be killing men for reasons I don’t understand

Bridge x4
Emancipation music if you want to you can choose it
Singing
(You know that right, why we gotta fight, do you feel me)

I wanna speak to momma about this sweat (eh yo I’m cold man)
I’d rather slang cane than be a vet
I think I changed my mind I wanna come home and stay the century
I back out now and my homes the penitentiary
I’m all confused, self abuse it got me trippin
Feel myself slipping man into the grip of Sam
But uncle let me go I wanna leave I fucked up god
Screw being a block star now I can see far
I apologize for all I’ve done, now you the only one to stay and help out mom
But I hope to return sporting garments and medals
Sipping gin letting butterflies settle
So give my mother my love Brother hope for the best
To get out of this mess I’ll need an s on my chest
And I know that you with me in mind dog its fate
Much love peace and elevate

Hook x4
Hello, hello, hello, hello it’s me again,
I don’t know why I’m calling, feels as though I’m falling
Stress has got me all bent out of shape and oh man
As of tomorrow I'll be killing men for reasons I don’t understand

Bridge x6
Emancipation music if you want to you can choose it

Singing
(you know that right, why we gotta fight, do you feel me)
