mali music- the job experience
I don’t know much about mali music other than he has a hella cool voice and vocal style. he’s featured on my favorite song on the new kirk franklin project. He performed this on the BET awards and tho they cut it off for commercials early, this is the full thing. VERY powerful.
LYRICS: And the cycle will begin…Typical story of a good man, giving God glory. He’s a God fearing man, perfect husband, excellent pops and he finally received that raise…cash in the bank! Yeah, they were saving up. He and his wifey been fusing, it’s time for making up. The recessions been digging in, yeah, it’s been really rough, but he believes his change is here to stay. He’s excited so he goes to call the boo to tell her all that happened and to let her know the news. It’s looking like its 6:22. She should be whipping up the dinner, got the kiddies home from school, but every time he calls it goes straight to her voicemail: “just leave your number and I’ll get right back to you.” He thinks nothing of it and he cruises the rest of the way trying to clear his mind. He pulls into the house, he’s so unfocused. Walks right in he’s wondering “why was the front door wide open?” Goes to the living room, there’s two man holding guns to his family’s face: his wife, his youngest and his oldest. They yelling “get the money, hit the floor man!” He pulls the money out he kneels down and says, “Just go, man!” The robber kneels down to get the dough and forgets his fingers on the trigger and he accidentally blows it [sound of gunshot].
Jesus, can You even see us? I gave You all of me ’cause I thought You could protect us, lead us and direct us, but You can’t even keep us safe from violence and diseases. I’m really wanting to believe in You, but I need a reason to trust You after this one.
Then God Says: “I am the Lord your God. There’s majesty and splendor roundabout Me. It’s very sad, but true, but very often your faith fails you and you doubt Me. But I’m so sovereign and above I give you power to believe you’re all in control…but I’m super! And I’m set to show myself so strong in the realm of the living that will leave the whole world in a stupor. And by the way, I caused the bullet shot to ricochet right back into the shooter.”
