inmigrants-lin-manuel

Hace unos días Residente sorprendió al dar a conocer su participación en el nuevo mixtape de Hamilton, de Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Ahora, anunciaron que “Immigrants” (la canción en la que colabora René Pérez) ya está disponible en plataformas digitales, como iTunes o Spotify.

Acá podés escuchar este gran tema>>

Letra:

Intro: “Yorktown” sample
Hercules Mulligan

And just like that it’s over, we tend to our wounded, we count our dead
John Laurens

Black and white soldiers wonder alike if this really means freedom…
George Washington

Not yet

[Verse 1: K’Naan]
I got one job, two jobs, three when I need them
I got five roommates in this one studio but I never really see them
And we all came America trying to get a lap dance from lady freedom
But now lady liberty is acting like Hillary Banks with a pre-nup
Man I was brave sailing on graves
Don’t think I didn’t notice those tombstones disguised as waves
I’m no dummy, here is something funny you can be an immigrant without risking your lives
Or crossing these borders with thrifty supplies
All you got to do is see the world with new eyes

[Chorus]
Immigrants
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Immigrants
We get the job done

[Verse 2: Snow Tha Product]
It’s a hard line when you’re an import
Baby boy it’s hard times
When you ain’t sent for
Racist feed the belly of the beast
With they pitchforks, rich chores
Done by the people that get ignored

Ya se armó
Ya se despertaron
It’s a whole awakening
La alarma ya sonó hace rato
Los que quieren buscan
Pero nos apodan como vagos
We are the same ones
Hustling on every level
Ten los datos
Walk a mile in our shows
Abrochense los zapatos

I been scoping ya dudes, ya’ll ain’t been working like I do
I’ll outwork you, it hurts you
You claim I’m stealing jobs though
Peter piper claimed he picked them he just underpaid Pablo
But there ain’t a paper trail when you living in the shadows
We’re Americas ghost writers the credit is only borrowed
It’s a matter of time before the checks all come
But…

[Chorus]
Immigrants
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Immigrants
We get the job done
Not yet

[Bridge: Snow Tha Product]
It’s Americas ghost writers a credit is only borrowed
It’s Americas ghost writers
It’s Americas ghost writers
It’s Americas ghost writers
It’s Americas ghost writers a credit is only borrowed
It’s Americas ghost writers a credit is only borrowed
It’s Americas ghost writers a credit is only borrowed
Immigrants
We get the job done

[Verse 3: Riz MC]
Ay yo aye immigrants we don’t like that
Na they don’t play British empire strikes back
They beating us like 808’s and high hats
At our own game of invasion, but this ain’t Iraq
Who these fugees what did they do for me
But contribute new dreams
Taxes and tools swagger and food to eat
Cool, they flee war zones, but the problem ain’t ours
Even if our bombs landed on them like the Mayflower
Buckingham Palace or Capitol Hill
Blood of my ancestors had that all built
It’s the ink you print on your dollar bill, oil you spill
Thin red lines on the flag you hoist when you kill –
But still we just say “look how far I come”
Hindustan, Pakistan, to London
To a galaxy far from their ignorance
Cos – immigrants, we get the job done

[Residente]
Por tierra o por agua, identidad falsa,
brincamos muros o flotamos en balsa.
La peleamos, como Sandino en Nicaragua,
somos como las plantas que crecen sin agua.
Sin pasaporte americano,
porque la mitad de gringolandia es terreno mexicano.
Hay que ser bien hijo de puta,
nosotros les sembramos el árbol y ellos se comen la fruta.
Somos los que cruzaron,
aquí vinimos a buscar el oro que nos robaron,
tenemos más trucos que la policía secreta,
metimos la casa completa, en una maleta.
Con un pico, una pala y un rastrillo,
te construimos un castillo.
Como es que dice el coro, cabrón:

[Chorus]
Immigrants
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Immigrants
We get the job done
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Immigrants
We get the job done
