Skinny Deville, Fish Scales and Buffalo Stille — better known as Nappy Roots — have delivered a lyric video for “Blind Faith,” a song that speaks directly to the current turmoil in America.

With production from 808 Blake and smooth vocals from blossoming singer Lando Ameen, the song finds the veteran Hip Hop group offering their soulful, southern perspective about perseverance as the country continues to protest and riot in the name of George Floyd.

Nappy Roots explained in a statement to GroovyTracks, “During these trying times of uncertainty our humanity and faith are being put to the test. ‘Blind Faith’ is a song in direct reflection of our willingness to overcome these obstacles. According to most, ‘Blind Faith’ means having complete confidence in someone, or something without any reason to do so.

“This is where the problem begins. While there are many solutions to a problem, we make an honest attempt and plea to listen to our inner selves to help find these answers. The world we live in is ever-changing and we must try our best to positively contribute to the human race.”

Nappy Roots’ forthcoming album 40RTY is expected to arrive on September 18.

(Skinny Deville)

What’s the end result…

If I get it how I live, what happens to my soul?

I can’t look back, or I’m a turn to salt…

Yesterday is in the past, today’s not my fault

 

I’m speaking to myself, thinking positive thoughts…

Stay focused on the dollar, keep my eye on the law…

I’m riding til the wheels fall, engine and all…

Wishing for a better day, I guess my timing is off…

 

Looking for a sign, I can tell that I’m lost…

Please Lord save my soul, like I’m nailed to the cross…

I can’t take it anymore, as I yell to the boss…

Motherfuck this 9 to 5, no matter the cost…

 

I’m a get it how I live, like I started this verse…

I know death is for certain, but not trying is worse…

Rent’s due on the 1st, and I already paid…

enough dues for a lifetime, sorry I’m late…

 

Hook (Lando Ameen)

I’m runnin’

I aint got faith anymore

don’t have no love any more

I have no patience…

 

I’m runnin’

and I can’t take it no more

my faith I’ve known for so long

tired of waitin’

I’m runnin’

 

(Fish Scales)

Like a quarterback sneak

Unexpectedly I creep

Live a life wit no peaks

Same life wit no grief

Take it all as it comes

No joy or pain just numb

Where Im from is way beyond

Face calm, As-Salaam

We won’t be here for long

We Prolong what’s to come

Ain’t No god over them hills right

Try telling that To them Israelites

Or A mother crying on the waiting floor

Whats your savior really waiting for?

What the hell he made Satan for

Pops ashamed I won’t say no more

Life is good if you living

Everybody save the children

Every cop should hate the killings

They say God’s good I say really

Waking up in a cold sweat

Every morning I’m like oh shit

Demons steady trying to push a nigga

Trying to make me lose my focus.

 

Hook

I’m runnin’

I aint got faith anymore

don’t have no love any more

I have no patience…

 

I’m runnin’

and I can’t take it no more

my faith Ive known for so long

tired of waitin’

I’m runnin’

 

(Buffalo Stille)

Jesus ain’t the only way, But for those who think that he’s the one

it’s better to have the faith, of a mustard seed than none

I thank God everyday, yahweh woke me up to see the sun

keep Him as yo Co-pilot, don’t let religion steer u wrong

 

Vocals on these ghetto Psalms

Hoping heaven hear my songs

Dope is meltin’ in my palms

I done blacked out several times

Choking in the devils arms

 

At best it’s Iffy,

50/50 yes it’s tricky

I’ll confess like reverend run

guess we’ll all find out at once,

When everything is Said n done

until then we juh havin fun

Sure sometimes we succumb

still more signs yet to come

We just blind def and dumb/ we must have sex to cum

goin nowhere fast, catch the run.

 

Hook

I’m runnin’

I aint got faith anymore

don’t have no love any more

I have no patience…

 

I’m runnin’

and I can’t take it no more

my faith ignored for so long

tired of waitin’

I’m runnin’
