Togolese breaks down what happened with Ayyub in Innocent and then speaks in first person as Ayyub in My Time. With Lyrics



Wonder why this is happening to Ayyub?
People ask why him? why go sooo far?
Maaan I'm about to break it all down
Free my man Ayyub ya'll

Imagine being there, for your community
uplifting the people, children with unity
doing so well you open up shop
natures garden variety
give it all you got
reaching success with that, pivotal power
understand right here this your hour
(Free Ayyub)
Becoming well known and your Muslim
they aint all bad the people are wondering
soon the FBI gets a whiff of his name
so they call him up and ask to take part of the game
spy on my people this is insane
hung up the phone went back to his family man
(free Ayyub)
All of sudden after a few weeks
passing the gas station the cops he sees
thinking nothing of it he walks on by
they stop him for a search he doesn't comply
They find nothing oh what a surprise
until they strip search illegally outside
(and man oooo my)
So a gun and ammo is what they find
with out a license Ayyub is doing some time
unless he agrees to be an informant
he said it aint mine what more do you want and
I will never give in to the options you chosen
from Allah my words are spoken

My Time

They trynna shut me down
they trynna shut me up
they always trace my calls
but its the same old stuff
the same story since day one
on the radio station, they hatin
put him in the hole
expression of the tongue
they wanna strip my lungs
like my body being searched
Then pulled my pants down
hocus pocus gun n ammo
15 on my life but that wont suffice
cuz if ever ever mention the fbi
keyword then they'll have my wife testify
or she faces deportation
cuz I said no to spying on my own nation
justification naw jus us
inshallah there'll be justice
instead its just ice for my wife
and the case on my life
But I know between wrong and right
Read my surats and pray 5 times a day
as long as the guard don't get in the way
hopefully god will always be in the way
shed the light tonight and I'll be ok
during my time
I got the city on my back
like the rappers always claim
Ayyub on the map and its time to bring change
its my time, my time, my time
hopefully it all rewinds
