BLACKOUT

Posted by

Blackout is the latest single that I released under the moniker Jaymes Mean. I’m not one to involve myself in political stances, but I wrote this track at the height of the BLM protests that occurred in May and June.

This song is not about opinions, it’s just to how I was feeling at the time. The song signafies that we are at a point now where it seems dreaming is no longer an option and blacking out is wall we have left.

It is sad to see the way we function as a society and it is a big reason why I am anti-social and stand-offish. I have a hard time trusting people and their intentions. We are in a time when a man of my skin color cannot go to the store without the possibilities of being killed by those who are meant to serve and protect.

As I am writing this, we are also in alert state for a second wave of the dreaded C-16 and it appears that this time around, if there are lockdowns, it will be for much longer.  

Wide awake, I still feel like I am in a never-ending nightmare. Everybody is upset about something. So upset, that some chose to take time out of their day simply to go protest the right to not wear a mask.

Meanwhile, people are losing their jobs due to business closures, the last call for drinks in my city is now 11pm, schools are rapidly closing as cases increase and we are dependent on the next words or rulings of government.

What a time to be alive!

Lyrics:

Blam
I’m a do what I gotta do to survive right?
Don’t give a damn about us
It’s that paper right?
It’s that paper
Shit

Ugh I’m eating good with no leftover
Champagne all around like the shows over
High five for the times we be gettin over
No love for the slimes that’ll push us over
Now I’m sitting in a foreign and it’s all leather
Suited up I’m a nigga that got it together
Fly I stay dry in the worst weather
It’s easy to spot a rat when u hold cheddar
Keep my circle real small cause I know better
I flip houses you thugs are out flippin burgers
Flip birds to you niggas you ain’t on my level
I’m in the shadows if you wanted to you couldn’t follow
On Dark nights Im sleepy hollow
Fuck a cop today and fuck ‘em tomorrow
My Eyes on the prize I’m a see tomorrow
Oh I’m a see tomorrow

I just wanna blackout
This make me wanna spazz out
Grab my piece go Westside Gunn it out
Boom boom boom
I’m a clear the room out
I just wanna blackout
This make me wanna spazz out
Grab my piece go Westside Gunn it out
I’m a clear the room out

Ugh still on my cool J
It’s time to bring it forward on some back pay
New style new vibe don’t mind me
Good high good bye won’t find me
Ugh I’m still movin’ with a briefcase
Boss things just movin at a fast pace
Yea they wanna hold me back in a black race
I ain’t come up in this world to be last place
A little greedy I’m not needy nigga
Money in a safe finger on a trigger
It’s me protecting mine I feel a little safer
A little marijuana wit some paranoia
Im doin laps like it’s Daytona
Try to preach over here and we might stone ya
Quarantine got the cuties tryna fuck a nigga
Yeeeah I’m in livin color

I just wanna blackout blackout
Blackout blackout

I just wanna blackout
This make me wanna spazz out
Grab my piece go Westside Gunn it out
Boom boom boom
I’m a clear the room out
I just wanna blackout
This make me wanna spazz out
Grab my piece go Westside Gunn it out
I’m a clear the room out
