Ladies and gentlemen…please..welcome

Verse 1 [Rae]:
Welcome to my world, 3rd world superstar
Devour planets take a bite out of Jupiter
Your ears my canvas my palettes spectacular
My brush strokes decode Davinci’s avatar
Mind of a graphic novelist, depth of an anthropologist
Broadcast to reach the masses like a tel-evangelist
The Rule should be the illest show-host last panelist
The greatest story ever told, main protagonist
Is me, All of the above, Hands fit the bloody glove
Buddah’s palms strike whenever the ‘push comes to shove’
My stage presence saw orgasmic fans show me love
*Whatchu think they ‘Came For’?*
I shine from above like a Death Star
Look I Skywalk you’re dead star
Child rebel soldier with rhymes in my holster
While you lazy bums stay one with the sofa
I’m one with the beat till ‘Chubby Cheeks’ sings ‘It’s Over’

Chorus: [Rae] (2x)
Look up in the sky, shining wherever you are
You can keep the bling, champagne and caviar
My people need shelter, food and running water
(so) As long as I live I’ll be a 3rd world Superstar

Verse 2 [Rae]:
Welcome to our world, 3rd world superstar
Deceived and brainwashed yet still know who we are
The Nkrumas, Shaka Zulus, Kenyattas
The half of a yellow sun dream that God shattered
The capitalist scheme that breeds military regimes
Corrupt politicians that detest their own skin
The ‘Crab in the Barrel’ mentality
Societal insanity, the ‘Suffering but Smiling’ reality
Is us, I.M.F., World Bank, Structural adjust
Programmed like C plus plus (C++), what the fuck?
The Somali toxic nuclear waste dump
Multi-national labour stationed…for these generation
The over-priced AIDS medication
No conversation, written on foreign stations
So if I die on the 16th like a martyr
I’ll form *A Constellation* with my brothers when it’s over

Chorus: [Rae] (2x)
Look up in the sky, shining wherever you are
You can keep the bling, champagne and caviar
My people need shelter, food and running water
(so) As long as I live I’ll be a 3rd world Superstar

3rd world superstar
3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, world superstar
3rd world superstar
3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, world superstar

Chorus: [Rae] (2x)
Look up in the sky, shining wherever you are
You can keep the bling, champagne and caviar
My people need shelter, food and running water
(so) As long as I live I’ll be a 3rd world Superstar

3rd world superstar

Str8Buttah is a Nigerian Hip hop group that is made up of six emcees namely Teckzilla, XYZ, R-Cube, Deck the Nexus, Enigma, and Mistah Rae. Like many other conscious emcees that originated from the region, they are influenced by the economic situation of the country and how the government are mismanaging public funds; they also communicate with youths using their music to empower them on how they can maximize their potentials.
