Masicka – Promise lyrics
(ft. Shane Skull & Wire Brain)


[Masicka]
Wages of sin is death and we nuh finish yet
Cah man a hunt fi greatness long before Guinness mek
Granny seh the wage of sin is death and we nuh finish yet
Ayy

[Masicka]
Tell mi family “Mi promise”
Mi swear seh we affi live lavish till di day I vanish
Tek a boy go a foreign if it slow up ina di fourteen parish
A who dem a bloodclaat trick like slavery abolished?
Wild and mi dark and mi hoggish, buss yuh head wid ‘e forty
It smooth like polish

[Masicka]
Brain-food ina chalice
Have it and mi nuh move like novice
Gyal loose ina palace
Wonder if ah Sue or Alice
Mummy come through, yah goddess (Step)
Have it from school, me a di baddest
Put mi hand ina di sky, next hand pon mi heart

[Shane Skull]
G-Syde
Cah mi nuh miss when mi a hustle, no
Run ina dem house and every mikkle mek a mukkle
Every big man get a shot and every pickney get a buckle
Queen inna di deck, nuh gimi nuh b**** when me a shuffle
Watchya
Finger strength, quick fi flick di muscle
Hard ball, full di clip and mi nuh tussle
B****, me got a couple
Couple bricks ina di duffle
Eye-water, mi daughter, listen mi tell yuh supm (Step)

[Masicka]
Tell mi family “Mi promise”
Mi swear seh we affi live lavish till di day I vanish
Tek a boy go a foreign if it slow up ina di fourteen parish
A who dem a bloodclaat trick like slavery abolished?
Wild and mi dark and mi hoggish, buss yuh head wid ‘e forty
It smooth –

[Wire Brain]
Grung dem
Killas to di left and to di right
Mi never shake
Tell ‘e man weh want a ruffle, dat a duffle as mi wake
Mama, me promise, ah guh drop yuh heavy weight
Firm and solid, suh trod ina every date
Till we vanish
Bwoy doh f*** wid ‘e cabbage
Higher level college, ghetto yutes get knowledge
(I promise)
Never sell mi soul fi di lavish
Yea, wi’ wild and wi’ hoggish

[Masicka]
Tell mi family “Mi promise”
Mi swear seh we affi live lavish till di day I vanish
Tek a boy go a foreign if it slow up ina di fourteen parish
A who dem a bloodclaat trick like slavery abolished?
Wild and mi dark and mi hoggish, buss yuh head wid ‘e forty
It smooth like polish

[Masicka]
Brain-food ina chalice
Have it and mi nuh move like novice
Gyal loose ina palace
Wonder if ah sue or Alice
Mummy come through, yah goddess (Step)
Have it from school, me a di baddest
Put mi hand ina di sky, next hand pon mi heart

[Masicka]
Nuh matter how di time get hard man a guh flip di paper
Like Covid couldn’t slow we down, we stock di bricks fi later
Fire di Devil ’cause di real lion nuh reason maker
Big up di maker ’cause a this we pray for, things fi greater
Instigator, right in dem forehead, foot ah fling fi laser
‘Cause dem doh wah wi’ fi ball like we have links fi Laker
Ah millions ah implicate and we nuh simple scraper
Mi n**** dead ah rob a brings, wi’ just wah things fi safer
A try fi infiltrate di paper, yuh fi build di acre
Kill di hater, win di b******, swing di riches in mi favour
Just poverty alone, eh not a thing mi ‘fraid ah
Ina di name ah di King, di Savior
Tell dem seh

[Masicka]
Mi promise
Mi swear seh we affi live lavish till di day I vanish
Tek a boy go a foreign if it slow up ina di fourteen parish
A who dem a bloodclaat trick like slavery abolished?
Wild and mi dark and mi hoggish, buss yuh head wid ‘e forty
It smooth like polish
