Munu Munu 02:28
MUNU MUNU What’s Up? You see my skin, You see a loaded Westerner, a human ATM. Unlike the NGOs before me, I can’t hand you food or cash money. I rock the first IPhone. It’s like a spaceship here, but a joke back at home. It’s like I’m the Asian Oprah, Through African Eyes, I’m the Big White Hoprah. Chorus (2x): MUNU MUNU! Take my picture MUNU MUNU Give me money MUNU MUNU Give me what you got MUNU MUNU Hook it up! Click Click. I take their picture. You can’t fly them home but you can take them with ya. Cha-Ching. I buy a souvenir. Some crap mass made in China that was proof that I was here. “Cope An Ngo.” I learned a local greeting. And consume their culture like the posho they are eating. A tourist cliche in every photo and my brain can’t stop repeating those lyrics from Toto. (Repeat Chorus 2x) Festo Wine in Swahili If you go, I will follow you. Mzungu, I will follow you. Facebook page, I will be with you. Twitter page, I will stay with you. Always I will stay in touch with you. Festo Wine in Swahili (Repeat Chorus 2x)

Chorus We got the money, we wanna spend it tonight Nobody move, let’s party tonight. (2x) Generator could be running out of fuel. Keep on dancing, what else to do Even when the lights tonight go out Celebrate, just scream and shout The night market has chapatti chips In the club there’s London Gin to sip Like the plantains you taste so sweet We’re gonna kiss until the old goats bleat Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! (Chorus Repeat) Tonight we wanna dance til the morning light So Mister DJ play our favorite song Tonight is for love and some kissing no fight We want to have some peace of mind Let’s have a drink some red bull some wine The club is catching fire, everyone is getting higher, The club is catching fire Sexy ladies looking crazy and the floor is getting hotter (Chorus Repeat x2) Karma, BJ or Blue Mango When you arrive, we will start the show Bring it down like the African Rains Like TJ Records on Acholi Lane Look smart and boogie, out of your rut Find a lover to bring back back to the hut Act like you live at the Bomah Hotel Your wish is granted and all is well. (Chorus Repeat x4)

Boss Lady 04:06
Chorus Ooooh… Boss lady. Ooooh… Boss lady. Ooooh… Boss lady. Ooooh… Boss lady. I’m a lady not a bitch not a trick not a ho, Hit a woman, call her names? Misogyny has gotta go! Rise up. Speak Up. Stand up for your mothers. Walk beside us, step back, that’s how to be our brothers. She knows how to manage money cuz she knows what’s missing. She can hold down a family despite all his dissing. Rocks a baby on her back and feed the homefront Keep humility in check when no one asks what she wants. Keeps walking head high, when you cat call. Won’t ever give in when everyone else hits the wall. She doesn’t clown your ass when you can’t get it up But she’s willing to please when you can’t get enough Breastfeeding and Cleaning, she’s the silent force of life She’s ain’t your slave nor your property just because she’s a wife. Holds it in when it matters and empathizes in strife She feels the pain of a village and leads it back to alright. (Repeat Chorus) See the world through her eyes like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie You gotta earn her consent if you wanna go near her pussy. Every woman’s Wonder Woman. Superheroes without capes. I wish she had the power to stop gender violence and rape. Short skirt cleavage a hint of perfume. She may look meek and girly but she controls the room. Feminism Activism Justice Equality All women connect in solidarity (Repeat Chorus) Boys the time has come to drop down to your knees! Dethrone yourselves and crown the matriarchy. No more reign of your terror. A new queen has come. Castrating sexism will be the first order done. Respect for all people that’s the new national song, if you don’t know the lyrics, call me, Kristina Wong That’s why the lady is the boss. Everyone woman is the queen of her queendom. (3x) (Repeat Chorus)

No Pity 02:59
Citizens of the First World, Listen up. You want to help the Third World? Here’s how. Stop Feeling Sorry. Big Wong on the Mic, Nerio on the Beat International Hip Hop Collaboration One Two. Let’s do it. (Chorus) temutujerega mutuleke tuzimbe, No Shame. temutujerega mutuleke tuzimbe, No Pity. tumutujerega mutuleke tubewo nafee Africa. You see a child covered in flies, I see a spirit wondrous street wise. You see a man who walks with no shoes I see a man whose overpaid his dues. You see a kid making toys from the trash I see creativity that can’t be bought with cash You see a woman selling food with every muscle I see a mother who will never stop the hustle You see a war torn poor crumbling nation I see a country on the brink of innovation (Repeat Chorus) Invest in classrooms not begging behavior No more false gods let people be their own saviors Nobody wants to be the subject of your pity Believe in power to change that’s this ditty Give a man a fish and you feed him for a night Teach him how to fish and you feed him for life Handouts are a short term solution Education leads to long term evolution (Repeat Chorus) Drop your privilege not your bombs Drop your fears and not your psalms Trust potential and keep calm Cause who sent you, yo! Kristina Wong ebyo ku kola nafe tulina bingi mwe fula abayamba mwogera bimgi, wadenga tetulina bingi luliba olo nafe netubela nabyo. omu africa yabaki oyo gwe mujerga twatonde bwa katonda temu tujerega, colour tuli muntuomu kobe mweru ndi mudugavuu temutujerega mutuleke tuzimbe, No Shame. temutujerega mutuleke tuzimbe, No Pity. tumutujerega mutuleke tubewo nafee Africa (2x)

about

It was an accidental international hip-hop collaboration. I was in the street with a flashlight on my third night in Gulu, Uganda looking for street food. These boys at a chappatti stand tried to overcharge me for "rollex". Next thing you know, I'm in their studio recording a rap album.
