Denise Chaila, MuRli & God Knows reference DOOM, Lord Of The Rings and Enya on big new tune ‘Rent Free’

Avatar

Narolane Records have returned with a collaborative track between the three main artists Denise Chaila, MuRli & God Knows, billed under Narolane.

‘Rent Free’ is a big booming tune with a new style displayed from the Narolane crew, bringing a clubbier Amapiano-inspired hip-hop sound to proceedings with Denise singing the song’s gook and MuRli and God Knows dropping fierce verses.

The song is produced by Ian Ring (Boku), with additional production by Denise Chaila & MuRli and was recorded at The Clinic Recording Studios. Ruairi Lynch aka Bantum plays guitar on the track and there’s even some sneaky background vocals from Mango on it.

It slaps hard, with references to DOOM, Lord Of The Rings, Run DMC and Enya, and it comes from the forthcoming Walk EP.

“Narolane is about giving people another option. We’re building a community based around the concept of joy,” says God Knows.

“We’re born in a particular place, our family is Black and so are we. We call ourselves Irish because we are, we are also individuals. It needs to be complicated.”

Rent Free Lyrics


These streets saw me starting
Now you wanna act like I’m foreign
Rent free in their minds when they’re trolling
I just keep my eyes on the target

There’s nothing temporary about my Sojourner Truth
Nothing to prove
Except my chains I got nothing to lose
Not timid, I’m not running from you
DMC so It’s Like That every time I step in the booth (uh)
I don’t genuflect or deflect and
Frankly I don’t need your respect I
Stand by everything that I said
Give life until my very last breath
(Mama say mama sa ma makusa)
Ty the knot and claim my odd future
Bring the pain cause my method, man
It was evident from the first day
This would be far from effortless
Trauma seeks repetition
Voyeurs seek exhibition
I am a noun, not an object in every sentence
Bars for the prohibition
Mad cause I been a villain
Use the DOOM as my ammunition
Pay tuition to the dropout spitting lectures you can’t outclass
I won’t laugh in your face but I will laugh last
Make the pace for my heart when I run these beats
And stay fly while I run these streets

These streets saw me starting
Now you wanna act like I’m foreign
Rent free in their minds when they’re trolling
I just keep my eyes on the target
These streets saw me starting
Now you wanna act like I’m foreign
Rent free in their minds when they’re trolling
I just keep my eyes on the target

May the Lord bless you Mama for the prayers that never cease, rerouted your whole life for us to make overseas, now I understand why back them you couldn’t get over them C’s, or them D’s or them E’s I’m sorry I underachieved, Praise you still believed, in me and all my sibs, that’s why I can’t be a simp, my masters are for kids, Family made history Pre narolane releases, now if you pree the lane’s releases, there Jewels on Duel, Intangibles made tangible it’s not even arguable the labels phenomenal
Relatable black excellence, Enya I make music with my family, we the new Brennan’s today’s bread today more like our daily bread get my words from the word. All’s my enemies be dead,
All of dem ded all of dem ded, so
Bun Satan Baphomet and Lucifer, free up all the bondages upon all prisoner

All of dem ded all of dem ded (dem dead) x4

We don’t play, they want me on my knees all day
But we don’t care, we’re gonna be ok

All of the takes, all of the shades, all of the Shame,
All of the hate, the silent appraisal, I’m taking it well
Into my stride, it’s killing my pride, the drive remains
I hit the ground running with my tribe, we digging new wells
Fill it with water, fill it with hope
Head on your shoulders, singing shalom
For there is a time and there is a season
To go to war and for coming home
All these anonymous, calling us animals
Pardon my pheromones, but you are the cannibals
The world loves to pity us,
Scapegoats, puts them on a stage playing Atticus
I cannot pretend to be a man the I never was
I’m just living in the future coz the present blows
Into your ears that when it rains it pours
So when it’s dry we ball
Never on a budget when the source is above
All mighty power over everything I love
You can put that on my country, I never run out bars
You never met a czar and I do not play guitar
So your idea of a rift is what’ll set us apart
Your perception of a gift is why we’re raising the bar
Psychedelic with the art, don’t it feel like you’re on Mars
Blood, sweat and mud on the crown that’s a triumph
Pint sized soldier in the land of the giants
Where living in itself is act of defiance
The desolation of Smaug will have the Nephilim crying

I keep my eyes on
I keep my eyes on
I keep my eyes
I keep my eyes on the target

I keep my eyes on
I keep my eyes on
I keep my eyes
I keep my eyes on the target
