Dmitry Peskov. Photo: Frame from video.

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said on the TV channel “Russia 1” that London is “an oasis for criminals.”

“All the trash is gathering in London, which has stolen money somewhere,” – he said in an interview with Pavel Zarubin, adding that this trash has been gathering there for the past 20 years.

Peskov noted that as soon as someone stole money, he sent it to London, there was honor and respect. “You sit and spend the stolen money. No one is going to give it away,” the head of the presidential press service emphasized.

Peskov called London “an oasis for criminals”

According to Peskov, in the last 20 years in the British capital “all the trash that has stolen money somewhere” has been gathering; law enforcement agencies of this country do not want to cooperate with Russia and extradite criminals

London, UK

Western countries constantly criticized Moscow and deliberately worsened relations with it, at the same time, the UK refuses to cooperate with Russian law enforcement agencies and extradite criminals who have arrived there, Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said on the air of the Russia 1 channel.

Answering a journalist's question, when they began to “undermine” relations between Russia and the West, Peskov remembered the former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko, who died in 2006 in the UK. “I remember very well: the press conference with anguish, the questions from journalists, which means they poisoned Litvinenko. What are we doing here?»— he wondered.

According to the press secretary, over the past 20 years, “all the trash has been gathering in London that stole money somewhere.” “Stole money— in London. Honor and respect, honorary thief, sitting, spending stolen money. No one is going to extradite, no one is going to cooperate with our law enforcement agencies. Well, here is such an oasis for criminals, & mdash; said Peskov.

Litvinenko left Russia with his family and came to the UK in 2000 after several criminal cases were brought against him. He died in London in 2006. According to British law enforcement agencies, he was poisoned with the radioactive substance polonium-210, which was added to his tea during a meeting with businessman Dmitry Kovtun, his former FSB colleague, and Andrei Lugovoi, who later became a State Duma deputy. They deny the accusations and claim that they themselves were victims of poisoning.

In September last year, the ECHR issued a verdict according to which the guilt of Lugovoi and Kovtun was not questioned, and ordered Russia to pay €100,000 to Litvinenko's widow Maria Carter (Marina Litvinenko). Peskov called the charges “unfounded”, noted that the results of the investigation into the death Litvinenko is still gone, and said that Moscow would not comply with the decision of the ECtHR.

Many defendants in criminal cases initiated in Russia, whose extradition was demanded by Moscow, moved to the UK. London refused to extradite the former CEO of LogoVAZ, a partner of Boris Berezovsky, Yuli Dubov, the founder of Hermitage Capital, William Browder, the former CEO of Togliattiazot; Evgenia Korolev and others.

In 2017, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office announced that the British authorities were the first in many years to satisfy the request of Russian law enforcement officers to extradite a Russian to bring him to criminal responsibility— Stanislav Dzgoev, who was convicted of robbery in Irkutsk.

Times learned about London’s intention to transfer weapons against ships to Kiev

In particular, we are talking about anti-ship missiles, disposable drones and anti-tank guns jpg” alt=”Times learned about London's intention to transfer weapons against ships to Kiev” />

Boris Johnson

Great Britain intends to supply anti-ship missiles to Ukraine. This was stated to ministers by the head of the British government, Boris Johnson, at a meeting of the National Security Council, reports The Times, citing sources among officials in the kingdom.

“We have a list of what they need, and we are trying to satisfy it in in what we can,— said the interlocutor of the publication (quote from RIA Novosti).

Among other things, London plans to supply Harpoons anti-ship missiles, Switchblades disposable drones, and anti-tank guns capable of hitting fired artillery shells, the newspaper writes.

In late March, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace announced the intention of London, together with the allies, to transfer more heavy weapons to Kiev. He clarified that we are talking about air defense systems, ammunition and long-range artillery.

He also pointed to the inexpediency of supplying Ukraine with new weapons systems that would require a long training process for military personnel. “The main focus should be on helping Ukrainians upgrade or find Russian or Soviet equipment that they already have in their inventory,” then added the minister. At the same time, he called the British Starstreak man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems ready for deployment in Ukrainian troops, since a number of representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already been trained to use them.

The British authorities have coordinated the supply of arms to Ukraine before. At the end of March, Johnson announced the transfer of £25 million and 6 thousand anti-tank and high-explosive missiles to Ukraine.

A day earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky again asked the United States to provide missiles, aircraft and other heavy weapons instead of body armor and a helmet. “Give me something with which I can protect my country,” — he called.

The Russian embassy in the United States has repeatedly criticized the supply of weapons by Western countries to Ukraine. At the end of March, Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov called such actions threatening the stability of Europe and the world. “Pumping up the Kiev regime with weapons and throwing foreign mercenaries into Ukrainian territory is irresponsible and extremely dangerous,” — considers the diplomat. Antonov said that a significant part of the weapons supplied to Kiev falls into the hands of “Nazis, terrorists and criminals”, and when they return home, they can use the experience they have gained in any way.

Russia has been conducting a military operation in Ukraine since February 24. President Vladimir Putin explained that such a measure was forced because of the “genocide” from the Ukrainian authorities of civilians of Donbass. Russian forces will carry out “denazification” and the demilitarization of a neighboring country, he added. The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that they strike only at the military infrastructure of Ukraine, there is no threat to civilian objects.

Times learned about London’s fears because of Russia’s gas supplies to Europe

Times: Britain fears restrictions on Russian gas supplies to Europe due to sanctions British officials believe that sanctions against Russia over Ukraine will lead to a reduction in Russian gas supplies to Europe, which, in turn, will negatively affect prices

< img class="aligncenter" src="https://s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/media/img/4/73/756429922623734.jpg" alt="The Times learned of London's fears about Russian gas supplies to Europe" />

British government officials fear that possible Western sanctions against Russia over the situation around Ukraine will lead to a reduction in Russian gas supplies to Europe, The Times reports, citing sources.

According to the newspaper, the British Cabinet expects that in the event of the introduction of sanctions, Russia will be able to use its natural resources as a “weapon” and will limit supplies.

According to the sources of the publication, members of the government previously participated in a meeting at which they assessed how the reduction in supplies would affect the United Kingdom. There is no direct risk of gas shortages, they said, but the conflict will push fuel prices to new record levels.

“Unlike some countries, the UK practically does not import Russian gas, — said one of the interlocutors.— But, like all countries, we are at risk of rising wholesale prices, which will become a serious problem if Russia further restricts supplies.

About half of the gas entering the British market is produced offshore the North Sea, about a third is exported from Norway, the Times notes. The rest— supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG), Britain's fears are that they will rise in price.

In 2020, the UK received less than 3% of gas from Russia, a government spokesman told the newspaper. Other European countries are much more dependent on Russian fuel, the newspaper writes: the share of deliveries to Germany is about 40%, and countries such as Sweden and Finland are “almost completely dependent on it.”

The EU has previously warned that due to the geopolitical situation, Europe will soon face “unusually high energy prices.” invade” to Ukraine (the Russian authorities have repeatedly denied this). Among the restrictions being considered in the US are — measures against the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

However, the sanctions that Europe will impose in the event of Russian “aggression” will not affect the pipeline, Austrian Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg said. “We in Europe are to a certain extent dependent on energy from Russia. <…> We can't change that overnight if we suddenly need heat and electricity,” — he explained.

The US Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, is sure that Russia will not be able to cut off gas to Europe in response to sanctions, since this is not in the interests of Moscow itself. The Kremlin has repeatedly said that Russia does not use gas as a weapon.

London accused Russia of neglecting security in space

SOURCE: PIXABAY

Russia neglected to ensure safety in space during testing of anti-satellite weapons, says British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace. In his opinion, due to the actions of the Russian side, potentially dangerous space debris has formed in Earth's orbit.

“The devastating test of an anti-satellite missile by Russia demonstrates complete disregard for safety and long-term stability in outer space,” he said.

In his opinion, the resulting debris will now threaten satellites and spacecraft for many years.

Earlier, the US State Department accused Russia of testing anti-satellite weapons that threatened the ISS.

London allowed the transfer of Russian tanks to the border with Ukraine

British experts argue that the movement of military equipment in the Voronezh region is associated precisely with the strengthening of the grouping on the Ukrainian border. In Kiev, they said before that they did not fix the concentration of Russian forces

At least the battalion of Russian T-80U tanks, which were loaded onto railway platforms in the Voronezh region, can be transferred to the border with Ukraine, Bloomberg reports from referring to the British company Jane's, which specializes in the analysis of military information. Its experts suggest that military equipment, presumably, will be sent to the Pogonovo training ground in the Khokholsky district of the Voronezh region.

Jane & # 39; s noted that, unlike the situation in the spring of 2021, when the movement of Russian forces also caused concern in the West, this time the equipment is being deployed secretly, at night.

Previously, Jane & rsquo; s reported about the appearance of additional tanks and artillery also in the Bryansk and Kursk regions, which border Ukraine.

RBC sent a request to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

On November 7, the press secretary of the Ukrainian president, Sergei Nikiforov, said that Kiev had no data on the concentration of Russian troops on the border “ above the normal level. '' He wondered why information about the movement of military equipment was spread by The Washington Post, which referred to American and European officials.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, in turn, said that the movement of Russian military equipment and army subdivisions on the territory of the country & mdash; this is exclusively a matter of Russia, and the latest publications about their appearance near the border of Ukraine are “ not even worth commenting. ''

Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense called the “ military development of Ukraine ''; the upcoming joint exercises of the American fleet and units of Bulgaria, Romania, Georgia and Ukraine in the Black Sea. The military department suggested that we are talking about the study of the alleged theater of military operations against the background of Kiev's preparation of a military operation in the southeast of the country.

Future & Drake Performed ‘Way 2 Sexy’ & ‘Life Is Good’ At Wireless Festival

Future performed at the Wireless Festival at Crystal Palace Park in London and shocked fans when he called out collaborator Drake to hit the stage with him.

It’s probably not that much of a surprise that Drake was in London, having posted on his Instagram stories recently that a large entourage had arrived to pick up him and members of his team from their private jet.

Fans were surprised, however, to see the Certified Lover Boy artist up close personal as the stage allowed as he and Future performed a number of their bangers, including their recent “Way 2 Sexy” and the double platinum-certified “Life is Good.”

A projector behind Future read “Hey Wireless, The Boy is home,” prior to Drake coming out on stage. It’s Drake’s first time in front of an audience this size since the pandemic began a year ago and since the rapper reportedly had Covid and also suffering a leg injury causing his CLB album to be delayed.

Friday night was also the first time Drake and Future performed the hilarious “Way 2 Sexy,” which is one of the songs ‘Certified Lover Boy’ getting heavy rotations on streaming platforms.

Meanwhile, Drake also blessed fans with a performance of his own, “Laugh Now, Cry Later.” The OVO artist has been basking in the success of his latest album, which is set to surpass first sales record bigger than any other artist, even Kanye West’s Donda.

Future and Drake have been close friends for years and often collaborated on each other’s albums. In 2015 the two collaborated on a joint mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive, comprising of 11 songs including “Big Rings” and “Digital Dash.” The project has since been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

​Baby Keem – cocoa Lyrics

[Intro]
Sit down and drink some champagne with me and let me rap

[Chorus: Baby Keem]
I’m balling with my friends
Staring at the money in a trance
Lil’ baby, can I be your mans?
I might have to buy her OnlyFans
Huh? She gave me pussy as just friends
I feel like nothing but a middleman
I’m done, baby, I can’t be your friend
You might give the pussy to my mans

[Verse 1: Baby Keem]
Huh? Ugh, you toxic
Ah-ha-ha-ha, you toxic
You wanna stay? Don’t stay late
Do you not like your house? Hate your place?
Vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom
Spent half a mil’ on Grandma house and then I zoomed
Got way more money than my peers, you would assume
In competition with myself, I cannot lose
What we gon’ eat?
I don’t do Nobu, baby, that’s him, not me
We fuck, wakе up, you go, we go too
London, we up, the top floor, еatin’ soul food
I don’t wanna eat nothin’ else
It’s new, I wanna see your room
It’s new, I wanna fix your wounds
It’s new, bitch, I’ma, ha, ooh

[Chorus: Baby Keem]
I’m balling with my friends (Hee-hee)
Staring at the money in a trance (Hee-hee)
Lil’ baby, can I be your mans? (Hee-hee)

Huh? She gave me pussy as just friends
I feel like nothing but a middleman
I’m done, baby, I can’t be your friend
You might give the pussy to my mans

[Verse 2: Don Toliver & Baby Keem]
I love to spend it, she coppin’ levitators (Uh-huh)
I took her out to eat, I took her out to Denny’s
She always call me plenty, drunky-drunky off the Remy (Uh-huh)
Sometimes no callback and Donny tooked off on the Henny
I’m touchin’ down in your city just to get it litty (Uh-huh)
Better check the bar when we in the strip, we throwin’ fifty (Go, yeah)
Do not be the Ghost, you can’t get too close (Nah)
Shawty be doin’ the most (Ooh), one hand better ride that roll
Xannies got me goin’ down, put me in my mode
I just ate lil’ baby up, shawty taste like cocoa
Ten feet, down deep, then I’m here and gone (Cocoa)
Got the beater out the sheets, you couldn’t keep her home
Niggas pull up to the function, whip, I leave it on (Pull up)
I leave it on, Told you that I pack a punch

[Chorus: Baby Keem]
I’m balling with my friends
Staring at the money in a trance
Lil’ baby, can I be your mans?
I might have to buy her OnlyFans
Huh? She gave me pussy as just friends
I feel like nothing but a middleman
I’m done, baby, I can’t be your friend
You might give the pussy to my mans

[Verse 3: Baby Keem]
Two freaks in the club, but they attitude trashy
Don’t fuck with broke boys, so the opps down bad
Baby Keem in the cut, she know that’s a hefty tag, huh
I just put the whole 702 on my back
You ain’t comin’ home with us, please, don’t you ask
I might throw a hundred ones, please, don’t be mad
Tit-for-tat, goin’ back and forth is not my passion
Took a trip to Paris to post another caption
It’s too much liquor, I get it, huh
Steakhouse, takin’ out, eight-hundred-dollar dinners, huh
Baby, go ahead and grab that, t-t-t-t-t-t-tease (Whew, whew, whew whew)
Bruises on your knees (Whew, whew, whew)
While I’m drinkin’ tea (Whew, whew)
She gettin’ teed, I hate when you tease
Don’t try to hide your ass, we’ll tag a picture on your back, huh
If that pussy good, there’s a chance I get attached

Ghetto baby daddy from hell. I be minding my business & NEVER call him unless it’s because the well being of my child,” she said.

Walker added that the other man London was warning others about has stepped into the role of father as London has neglected his daughter for the last two months.

Walker didn’t stop there as she shared several other posts as she continued to bash London.

“I be trying so hard to mind my business, n***a so pressed. & come get this car, I don’t want nothing from you n this shit ain’t even paid for. I like my cars paid OFF. … One of y’all hoes PLEASE put some good pussy on that man so he can leave me and my family alone. Thank you,” Summer said.

The rapper also took the time to insult Walker about her body as she recently showed off her results from breast augmentation.

He said his finances were solid and that he could buy “5 Teslas,” while Summer was “still making payments on ya ass n titties talkin’ bout a car.”

The producer also countered her claims that he was a deadbeat dad, saying that it’s cap, “everybody around me know how I am wit my kids.”

The producer has two other children. Summer Walker later responded with a video in which she called out London and Erica Eboni to leave her alone.

“Y’all was f***ing terrorizing me for two years bro cause I was with the n***** I gave him back for the same reasons y’all was terrorizing me for two years,” Walker said as she became dramatic and used her hands in a throwing motion to signal how she gave London back.

“I don’t know what y’all think this is, but we’re not doing this for the next 18 years bro. I tried to be cool with all of y’all, I tried to be the big happy family and have everybody over for Christmas….Eboni you told me you tried to meet me…I told him [London] bring her here I want to talk to her… brought you here…and we talked.”

Walker said she told Erica that she was willing to work to make the family unit work so the children can know each other. However, Erica said she was not interested and wanted to fight her.

She added that she had to keep dealing with issues when all she wanted was to have her child and get married. “leave me alone,” she tells both Erica and London.

She said she went on a date and the next day London had sent her threats.

Meanwhile, the drama was a back and forth with Erica defending London.

“Summer over there talking all that monkey sh*t about London y’all don’t fall for her mentaliy stuck on stupid and ungrateful. Nobody even knew this stripper b**** before London made her,” she said.

Summer Walker Accuses London On Da Track Of Being A Deadbeat & Sending Threats

Summer Walker has once again taken to Instagram to voice her frustrations regarding her ‘deadbeat’ baby daddy, London on da Track.

According to Summer Walker, he has threatened her and an unnamed man who is assisting Summer with caring for her child in his absence. She posted a series of Instagram Story postings about his threats as she further criticized his questionable fathering abilities.

In the first Story post, she stated, “London calling everyone around me cause he BLOCKED talking bout if you care about summer get that n****a away from her. So if anything happens to me it was him. Ghetto baby daddy from hell.”

Summer Walker and London On Da Track welcomed their baby girl, affectionately called ‘Bubbles’ back in March. Their relationship has been rocky since its start and it has been scattered with numerous splits. After slamming London in her last album and taking to Instagram in June to tell women to stay away from men like him, it seemed like there was no reconciling in the future for the couple.

She continued her rant via her IG Story adding, “I be minding my business & NEVER call him unless it’s about the wellbeing of my child. Smh crazy mf. & “that n***a” has been raising your child since 2 months cause you ain’t s**t & wouldn’t help me. You need to stop threatening people and tell him thank you, f***kin weirdo.”

Many are finding it tough to sympathize with him in this latest Instagram attack due to his past deeds. To add insult to injury, in her last post in the series, Summer further lashed out against London On Da Track, boldly stating that he can take back the car he had given her. She declared, “& come get this car, I don’t want nothing from you n this s**t ain’t even paid for. I like my cars paid OFF.”

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom)

Being a mother is a big job, and the singer has seemingly found out that moms seldom get a break. She expressed this concern via a post and delete following her rant. She stated, “I can’t take a s**t or eat in peace without hearing hysterical screaming in the background or having food snatched off my plate before I can get to it but most “fathers” know nothing of these struggles lol (rolling eye emoji).”

The public image of London isn’t helping the rumor mill surrounding him. The producer has developed a reputation as a skirt-chaser and a deadbeat parent as a result of his previous public misdeeds and baby mama drama. To make matters worse, he was recently seen candle-shopping with Shenseea, a Jamaican dancehall musician and sensation. Fans have been questioning if they are just working together on music or if the pair are romantically involved.

Shenseea & London On Da Track Sparks Dating Rumors Spotted Shopping Together

Shenseea is again grappling with dating rumors following a video of her shopping with producer London On Da Track.

Over the weekend, a short clip emerged on social media showing the “Trending Gyal” singer and Summer Walker’s baby daddy shopping in a store at the mall. Shenseea has been spending a lot of time in the States recently as she’s putting in work on her album and performing at several shows, including her appearance at Kanye West’s Donda listening event in Chicago on Thursday night.

Fans and followers of Shenseea can acknowledge that the deejay has a habit of shopping whenever she is overseas. Usually, she is shopping with her co-manager Romeich or with Rvssian. This time it seems fans were taken aback to see her shopping with London On Da Track.

While the talent of London on da Track is hard to deny, many social media users have labeled him as an “industry dude” (or ladies man) and a “deadbeat dad,” after the mothers of his children, including singer Summer Walker, continue to call him out for not taking full responsibility for his kids.

“Summer gonna be mad as hell lmao,” one person commented on the video. Another added, “the fact that females are attracted to men who don’t take care of their responsibility.”

@londonondatrack IG

Still, others are adamant that Shenseea would never date London given his ‘reputation’ when it comes to relationships. “Shenseea not dumb,” one person stated simply.

Sources close to the dancehall diva told Urban Islandz that she has been working on new music with London On Da Track. We’re told that he has a heavy hand in the production of her upcoming album.

In June, Shenseea shared pictures of a late-night studio session with London On Da Track on her Instagram story. The producer is also managed by Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, who is now managing Shenseea.

As the “Bad Habit” singer gears up to release her debut album, London on da Track may have contributed to the production of the project.

“Sis new music gonna have some [fire emoji] beats!” one person said.

London on da Track has played a critical role in the production of some of the hottest songs over the last decade. These include “No Stylist” by French Montana and Drake, “My Type” by Saweetie, “Die Young” by Roddy Rich “Positions” by Ariana Grande, and “Lifestyle” by Rich Gang featuring Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug.

@shenseea IG

So it could only be a good thing if the producer had done some work on Shenseea’s upcoming album.

In addition, Shenseea seems to, unfortunately, be susceptible to these types of rumors in recent months. In early June, rumors propagated that the “Blessed” singer did not only have relations with Drake but was pregnant by him!

She later addressed the rumors labeling them as “foolish.” She further explained why she had been taking a break from social media and music.

She explained that she was still grappling with the loss of her mother, among other things that were pulling her into depression. Shenseea has since pulled herself out of it and has since finished her debut album.

In April of this year, Shenseea also addressed accusations that she and her manager Romeich Major are in a relationship. She made it clear that those accusations are false, and she considers him as a brother.

Shenseea recently released the first single from her album, “Run Run.” She then became the first Jamaican to perform at Rolling Loud Miami and was one of three dancehall artists who performed at Summer Jam 2021 in New York. Most recently, Shenseea was spotted at Kanye West’s third “Donda” listening event, and also her vocals could be heard on the album’s single, “Pure Soul,” with Roddy Ricch.

J. Cole, Bas & 6lack – L E T . G O . M Y . H A N D Lyrics

[Chorus: J. Cole]
Soldier’s song, marching on, on
Hoping to see home
If I die before I
See your smile just one more time

[Verse: J. Cole]
Sometimes I question whether this shit matters
Puttin’ substance into something in a world so used to instant gratification
I found this instrumental on my phone while on vacation
Ib sent it a year ago or so
I probably heard it before, but slept on it, you know?
Shit don’t always connect as soon as you press play
At times you gotta step away, do some livin’
Let time provide a new prescription, givin’ truer vision
I dibble-dabble in a few religions
My homie constantly telling me ’bout Quran, puttin’ me on
I read a few pages and recognize the wisdom in it
But I ain’t got the discipline for stickin’ with it
Now I’m on the way to London, got a show for seven digits
I’m wonderin’ just when did I become my biggest critic?
I wanna be my biggest fan, like how I was when didn’t nobody know my jams
Today my son said, “Dad, let go my hand”
Reminded me one day he’s gonna be his own man
And my job is to make sure he’s equipped
I gotta make sure he not no bitch ’cause niggas bound to try him
If I said I was the toughest growin’ up, I would be lyin’
I had a fear of gettin’ punched while everybody eyein’
Add to that a constant fear of dyin’
By gunshot wound, the other violent type of endings
I kept a tough demeanor on the surface but was mostly just pretendin’
Luckily my bluff was workin’ way more often than not
But sometimes a nigga pulled my card, tryna expose me for a fraud

And with my reputation at stake
I was scufflin’ just to save face
Couple wins, couple losses, some broken up too quick to call it
My last scrap was with Puff Daddy, who would’ve thought it?
I bought that nigga album in seventh grade and played it so much
You would’ve thought my favorite rapper was Puff
Back then I ain’t know shit, now I know too much
Ignorance is bliss and innocence is just ignorance before it’s introduced to currency and clips
Or bad licks that have a nigga servin’ three to six, shit

[Chorus: J. Cole, Bas & 6LACK]
Soldier’s song, marching on, on
Hoping to see home
If I die before I
See your smile just one more time

[Bridge: Bas]
Soldier’s song
I could be one to lean on
Time will right the wrongs
Won’t be long
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
Something inside of me’s tryna crawl up to the surface
Something is suddenly smothering, stopping me
Stubbornly getting its way (Way), way (Way)
Drowning out the wave (Drowning out)
I’ve got a reason to believe that I’ll turn out just fine
Soldier’s song

[Outro: Diddy]

​J. Cole, Bas & 6LACK – l e t . g o . m y . h a n d Lyrics

[Chorus: J. Cole]
Soldier’s song, marching on, on
Hoping to see home
If I die before I
See your smile just one more time

[Verse: J. Cole]
Sometimes I question whether this shit matters
Puttin’ substance into something in a world so used to instant gratification
I found this instrumental on my phone while on vacation
Ib sent it a year ago or so
I probably heard it before, but slept on it, you know?
Shit don’t always connect as soon as you press play
At times you gotta step away, do some livin’
Let time provide a new prescription, givin’ truer vision
I dibble-dabble in a few religions
My homie constantly telling me ’bout Quran, puttin’ me on
I read a few pages and recognize the wisdom in it
But I ain’t got the discipline for stickin’ with it
Now I’m on the way to London, got a show for seven digits
I’m wonderin’ just when did I become my biggest critic?
I wanna be my biggest fan, like how I was when didn’t nobody know my jams
Today my son said, “Dad, let go my hand”
Reminded me one day he’s gonna be his own man
And my job is to make sure he’s equipped
I gotta make sure he not no bitch ’cause niggas bound to try him
If I said I was the toughest growin’ up, I would be lyin’
I had a fear of gettin’ punched while everybody eyein’
Add to that a constant fear of dyin’
By gunshot wound, the other violent type of endings
I kept a tough demeanor on the surface but was mostly just pretendin’
Luckily my bluff was workin’ way more often than not
But sometimes a nigga pulled my card, tryna expose me for a fraud
And with my reputation at stake
I was scufflin’ just to save face
Couple wins, couple losses, some broken up too quick to call it
My last scrap was with Puff Daddy, who would’ve thought it?
I bought that nigga album in seventh grade and played it so much
You would’ve thought my favorite rapper was Puff
Back then I ain’t know shit, now I know too much
Ignorance is bliss and innocence is just ignorance before it’s introduced to currency and clips
Or bad licks that have a nigga servin’ three to six, shit

[Chorus: J. Cole, Bas & 6LACK]
Soldier’s song, marching on, on
Hoping to see home
If I die before I
See your smile just one more time

[Bridge: Bas]
Soldier’s song
I could be one to lean on
Time will right the wrongs
Won’t be long
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
How can we grow any closer?
Something inside of me’s tryna crawl up to the surface
Something is suddenly smothering, stopping me
Stubbornly getting its way (Way), way (Way)
Drowning out the wave (Drowning out)
I’ve got a reason to believe that I’ll turn out just fine
Soldier’s song

[Outro: Diddy]
Lord, please guide our steps
Watch us, cover us

Bob Marley 40 Years After Death Personal Doctor Suspects Foul Play

Today (May 11th) marks 40 years since Bob Marley’s death, and to this day, his legacy still lives on in the hearts of his many fans across the globe. His impact was so great that, to date, he still has one of the best-selling albums of all time. His greatest hits compilation, Legend, which was released in 1984, has sold over 11 million copies in the U.S. and has spent nearly 300 weeks on the Billboard 200.

Bob Marley died of acral lentiginous melanoma on May 11, 1981, after being diagnosed in 1977. At the time of his death and for many years after, many fans believed that he was purposefully injected with cancer. It’s a theory that many fervent fans still believe. A recent interview that his personal physician, Dr. Carlton “Pee Wee” Fraser, had with Jamaica Observer may lend some credence to their theory.

He believes that Bob Marley may have been injected with the disease a little while after the assassination attempt at Hope Road. In fact, he added that he believed he is aware of the method of delivery. Most people believe that Marley’s woes started after a football injury but Dr Fraser believes differently. He believes that Marley’s troubles all started with the gift of a pair of sneakers.

“After the attempt to murder him at Hope Road when he was shot, Bob retreated to the hills. A few days later he was given a pair of sneakers. When he tried it on a needle went into his big toe and it was so hard to get it out. He then went on tour and when he was in London the toe got worse and it was said they would have to amputate the leg at the hip,” he said. When this was told to Bob Marley, he insisted that he speak with his own doctor. Dr. Fraser then began researching different techniques that would not require amputation.

“We were in New York because I was not licensed to work in the US and had to work through another doctor. After my presentation, they then suggested that it be amputated below the knee. I did not agree and so the decision was taken to remove the malignant area from the toe,” he explained. After that, the doctor sought out a specialist to verify that the procedure had been a success.

“Her exact words were: ‘Fantastic, you have a clear margin of five millimetres, and in some cases seven millimetres around the tumour, so there is no evidence of spread.’ So we had cured Bob as the cancer in his toe had not spread, and everything was fine,” Fraser recalled.

That’s just one of the reasons that he believes the reggae icon might have been deliberately infected. He shared another instance later in Marley’s life that he thinks led to his final diagnosis. He explained that after the procedure, Bob Marley went back on tour but began to have very strange maladies like nose bleeds and headaches. This was when he was told that cancer from his toe had spread throughout his body. He said he was in disbelief at this point because “we had done all the technical scans and X-rays to make sure there was no evidence of cancer in his toe. According to him, “they definitely know what they did.”

He believes the second instance of Marley being infected came during his tour to promote the Uprising album.

“The guy who handled the lighting for all Bob’s shows said during that tour he was not allowed to work on the lighting. He said for that whole time Bob complained about how hot the lights were and the fact that they burned his skin,” he revealed. Marley pressed on, probably driven by his ideals and his belief that he had a message to spread. That was until September 1980, when just before playing football in Central Park, he collapsed. After Fraser went To New York and various tests were conducted, Marley was told that he had two weeks to live.

That’s when Fraser suggested that the reggae star fly to West Germany to be part of some groundbreaking treatment from Dr. Josef Issels. Fraser discovered Dr. Issels after he saw a newspaper advertisement about his innovative ways of treating cancer. He made contact, and the German physician agreed to take Marley on as a patient, where he stayed for seven months. Things looked good from that point, for a little while. Fraser admitted he was hopeful as Marley seemed on the road to recovery.

“Within weeks of Dr Issels’ treatment Bob was showing signs of recovery. Through the electromagnetic machines the size of the tumours in his brain and lungs were reducing. Bob was improving, his body was responding fantastic to it,” he said.

Fraser explained that before the treatment, the “Three Little Birds” singer could hardly walk but while in Germany, he was doing so well that he wanted to get up and play football. “When we were going up the stairs at first I would go up two steps and then wait for Bob to catch up. Within three weeks he was running up the steps. The nosebleeds and headaches had stopped,” he added.

As time passed, an open laparotomy showed that the tumor was now just a lining in his stomach walls. To Fraser, this meant that the therapy was reversing his cancer. He believed that he was definitely on the road to recovery. This is one of the reasons why he was so surprised to learn that Marley was going home. He wanted him to stay longer until the tumor had completely shrunk. He added, though, that he was not privy to the final meetings with Dr. Issels. It’s a decision that he still grapples with.

“I would not have made him leave Germany until there was no more evidence of cancer, which was definitely disappearing. I would say another month or so of the treatment would have done it as all the complex symptomology associated with the tumours had disappeared. I wanted him to stay there longer so that you would have to use a microscope to find even the scar tissue,” Fraser said.

Just before Marley’s death, Fraser left West Germany for London to deal with some issues there. Following his departure just seven days later, the jarring news came to him that Marley had died while en route to Jamaica at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami, Florida.

“I was dismantled. The news hit me hard. I was in London dealing with Twelve Tribes [of Israel] matters and a brother came and told me Bob had died. How is that? He was doing so well in Germany. Even if he was to die, it should not been so quickly. It was crazy. I could not believe,” Fraser shared with the Jamaica Observer.

The two had become close friends after meeting in 1975. Fraser is a past student of Wolmer’s Boys’ School and studied at Howard University in Washington DC. He met Marley after he joined the Twelve Tribes of Israel and became the organization’s doctor.

He would return to Jamaica to attend Marley’s funeral on May 21, 1981, at the National Arena in St Andrew. He would join over 30,000 people as they mourned the son of the soil who spread a message of peace and love while flying the Jamaican and Rastafarian colors high.
