Soft Boy Kojaque confronts a hard man bully on ‘Coming Up’

Kojaque dropped a trippy new song and video for ‘Coming Up’ today, which will be on his debut album (2018’s Deli Daydreams was a mixtape, semantics! )

The song was written when the Soft Boy came upon an old hard man bully at a party last year and the video is top notch as ever with Director Henry Dean in charge. Credits here.

“‘Coming Up’ was written after I’d come home from a party like last year. This dude who used to bully me in school was there and I remember him being a dickhead at the party. I could never stand up to him when I was a kid but I stood up to him that night, I think it took him by surprise and I remember being so pissed off because I let it effect me, it felt like being 15 again. It’s the sort of feeling that makes you wanna give up, but I snapped out of it and thought, no fuck that, I won’t let it affect me, I’m not a kid anymore. And I wrote ‘Coming Up’ that night. I think the tune was an effort to shake that feeling, it was kind of a fuck you.”

‘Shmelly’ is the other song we’ve heard from the forthcoming LP.


Coming Up Lyrics

I just fuck to take the pain away
Pray I don’t regret that shit tomorrow
When you touch me girl I feel electric
Hope you got some rubbers I can borrow
Coax it with your hand and so I follow
Open with my stansas my apostles
Quote my when I land I’m like Apollo
Half um think I’m fake and half um hollow
Empty vessels making all the noise
Empty clips and keep um paranoid
Eclipse put my chakras on the blink
Brink of breaking through the fuckin void
Hate me when I’m working on myself
Love me when I lose my mental health
Curse me when I finally drop the mic
Act as if you always wished me well

Tell me not to try I’d only fail
Text me when I make it like we close
Tell um how you used to be a friend
Forget the way you treat me like a ghost
Half the time I wanna stay annono-
mous I flipped the script and made a profit
Ego auto pilot hit and run
Burn a bridge or throw yourself up off it
Tell my story you just talk to top it
Talking bout yourself let’s switch the topic
I’m just tryna pay my mammy’s bills
You’re just tryna make um like ya, stop it
Kids’d call me pussy in my school
Call me bent cus I didn’t bend the rules
I just learned the system better then um
School um, got um swimming in my pool
I get paid to speak don’t make me bill ya
Talking money better back it up
Make me lose my sleep and imma kills ya
Count the sheep that flock Toward the pup
Skin Um like I’m tryna find a filter
Big smoke, big smoke, yeah
Eyes like dinner plates, I’m off a pinger
Hit the buzzer girl I’m coming up

Coming up
Coming up
Hit the buzzer girl I’m coming up
