LYRICS: Teephlow – Preach

 

Teephlow

 

On Friday 6th April, 2018, Fante Rap god, Teephlow released a lyrically dense track titled Preach. The track, which is replete with numerous puns/double entendres and several other literary devices has generated a host of comments on social media by rap patrons since its release. Many have viewed the track as a reply to his bitter rival, Strongman Burner who purportedly attacked Teephlow lyrically with a track titled Charcoal earlier in the year. An ardent patron of rap music, Joseph Nana Owusu Afrifa has compiled the lyrics of Teephlow’s new heat, Preach. Check out the lyrics below:

 

Yeah, ay3 ready ahh

HBOO… Spider Lee

 

1st Verse

Mehn, I’ve been in the industry for a while so I know what is happening

People claiming good face, what they preach be opposite what they practice

W)y3 fake, them go stab you in the back, turn around and say, abeg you, kos3 ate

Just for daily wage,  ebe dirty game, enti every day you for fit to study dema tactics

 

Them start switch ways, joy ride, now see dem jumping on the fast lane

Hype kakra starti manifest ( *M.anifest*) yi, b)hw3 killers aka wonti abom, they want sack ( *Sark*) me

They say we no dey flow well,  now people dey tap into the flow, so they pray say we go start sing( *sink*)

It’s amazing, how in a quest to find some small cheese, we end up in a rat race

 

Friend, okumfo domfo, )se )te rap ase papaapa but onhu medzendo

They sleep on me for long, wonwr3 afi d33 endu suzu du mpo

But it’s our turn to reign( *rain*), wonhu d33 ehum retu mpo

W)se w)dawgi me,  me mpo de3 wombu menwom mpo

But me droppi track p3, wosuma retie no lungu lungu

W’onipa waate but )nka ho hwee but for dema mind )se herhh the boy dey kill but menku nipa o

 

They see say I be threat so they hating, woyem aa anka m’afloppi s3 diskette

Looking at this pair,  all the diss yeah I know say this pair will love to see me in despair

But I swear,  am a beast yeah, no zoo keeper can ever tame this pet

W)se field open, we for throw shots but in this game I think there are better things we for discuss

 

Manager se Phlow you be too deep,  sometimes you for dummy down

Okay mekaad33 *field game*,  *throw shots* and *discus*,  I hope say you get it now

Check your files, na hw3 me styles, 3b3hu d33 Ghana ha dze ab)ney3fo no p3 na w)mp3 me sounds

I’ve come this far, enti 3diss m’aa, this bark,  naa discard

I won’t play this card,  I’m the greatest of all time ( *G.O.A.T*) but I don’t chew this card ( *cud*)

Get it?…. I’m the GOAT,  you for think fast, I wanna be a rich man

You be young man,  make you no make hatred and envy consume your mind

Them dey bite, them dey chew my lines nanso still w)n flow no y3 so soft b3ka d33 Yokozuna thighs

But you know say you dey flow waa, )ngyae n’ekrom nii na )nsupporti awo, eii massa na )suro wo a? (Laughs)

See, I’m trynna paint a new pic but them dey still dey focus on the throwback

Maybe them for learn Software Developing,  that be the only way these kids go fit grow up( *App*)

Them dey preach loyalty but they act #fishy ( *fish*) whenever  they see food ( *sea food*)….

Don’t be fool,  them go called u honey ( *honey* )  but when things start dey bee ( *BEE*) them go sting you.

They say make we dawg hip-hop but when beef comes they say it’s good for the culture

Which culture? Massa,  Kris Kross am,  how can this solve am ( *sulphur*), )b3y3 aa dissolve am
