Reason - Banani mavoko

Almight
Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
Banani mavoko mi phokotelo

First things first, the name's Reason
Voice these words just like Jesus
That mean I birth these verse to curse demons
I convert you herds they call heathens
Meaning living off you nonbelievers
Most underrated, makes me an overachiever
DNA of a great artist like Don Cheadle
I'm a shooting star
That's why they cry rivers
What a stretch for a line but I mean it (I do)
See my success is a crime but I need it (I do)
Behind bars I'm trapped between bars and traps
Still I bar the track 'cause I breach them (I do)
Most gifted, consistent, so genius
Made it, commercially rap since no sleep
Now I'm taking hours of naps, there's no sleeping
Beasting like I know that I might just stop breathing
Even back when I was in the East with
Me and Last Days Fam running Thembisa
We was burning these bars like old heaters
Dropping flows that's hot and cold with no geysers
No features, no media, no teachers
Flow breaches so deep we froze evils
Had to take a gap year that I so needed
'Round the time me and my step dad was beefing

Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
I ghaghu ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ra vuswa ghe

Everybody asking for some deep shit
Everybody telling me they need this
Back when I was on it they was beefin'
Soon as I was shallow they was tweetin'
Everybody saying this some weed shit
Talking down on me with the speeches
Used to crucify me for believing
Now they're praying to the chirch of Reason, screaming


Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
Banani mavoko mi phokotelo

'Cause instead of stepping down, I chose leavin' (I'm out)
I chose dreamin', damn it, I chose me then
It's been such with baby mama and those I've been with
Niggas who put their life on the line to keep me breathing
Sometimes I look at the distance and don't believe it (I don't)
All the closest niggas I had, no longer speaking
I was sure the money we had was all the reason (I wish)
But we've been together since all we had was sneakers
So I went back to the scores, been off season
Just did an album about broads and how we treat them
Had an outstanding response that didn't mean shit
'cause back home my people don't want that deep shit

Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
Banani mavoko mi phokotelo
I ghaghu ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ghaghu ra vuswa ghe
I ghaghu ra vuswa ghe

Everybody asking for some deep shit
Everybody telling me they need this
Back when I was on it they was beefin'
Soon as I was shallow they was tweetin'

Everybody asking for some deep shit
Everybody telling me they need this
Back when I was on it they was beefin'
Soon as I was shallow they was tweetin' (Shit)
