Nwigwe, Tobe - COLOR Lyrics

[Tobe Nwigwe:]
Oh how life
Seems black and white
Until the light adds color
A rose will rise
Through mulch that hides
The seed within a mother

Drop it

Seasons changin', I know you can see the glow, ooh
Baby rappers is my Gohan, I'm Goku
Sonnin' 'em, every one of 'em, none of 'em
Could ever pick up a pen and pad and try to summon Him
Ooh, no cap, this ain't just cold rap
Tis a known fact my whole stature archangel
Most cats approach rap with flows that
Display that, they toe tap like Bojangles
Ooh, all that shucking, jiving
Paw Paw told me that ain't my assignment
From the city where the cups is violet
Keep arms by my navel like the Heimlich
Maneuver, for any intruder that wanna damage me
Or the beautiful ruler who chose a suitor like me to carry her into the future
I'm getting off topic
Don't let me lose ya, look

[Tobe Nwigwe & Fat Nwigwe:]
Oh how life
Seems black and white
Until the light adds color
A rose will rise
Through mulch that hides
The seed within a mother

[Tobe Nwigwe (Fats Nwigwe):]
Ooh, seasons change, I'm feeling
Myself like I lost my wallet (It's gone)
They say "Tobe, yo flow wavy"
I say "I'm a faucet" (Drip, drip)
Splash, splash, splash, splicka, dash
Word to sauce, walk, I got heavy drip (Ooh-wee)
And even though the flow is water
I still keep my guard up 'cause Lucy a jellyfish (Ouch)
Tryna sting me even though he know that I'm submerged
With the word that keep haters off me
And I don't understand how I provide so much flavor
But some folk out here still be salty (Haters)
I call it iodine poisoning (I do)
I never fold like accordions (Yuh)
And I'm only here to give you the heads up
That the one is coming, word to Morpheus
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

[Tobe Nwigwe & Fat Nwigwe:]
Yeah, yeah
It's a new dawn, it's a new day
We on repeat like a screw tape
Taking off like toupees
We the new wave
We the new wave
It's a new day (New day)

Oh how life
Seems black and white
Until the light adds color
A rose will rise
Through mulch that hides
The seed within a mother

  27. E.Flores

    Being raised on screw and being from houston this is a breath of fresh air. Everything is money cars clothes and hoes. I'm in my 30's now and got into lyrics that are much deeper with content that is not so ignorant and more meaningful and that almost seems not to exist in Houston rap.
    Rappers just seem to be rapping the same content over and over and the only thing changing is the metaphors used.

    If people know other houston rappers that have lyrics deeper then a bird bath I'd be highly appreciative of dropping their names.


    This was awesome and Congratulations Nell & Cory💯❤

  29. MYnameIsANTONY
