Tobe Nwigwe is coming off of an incredible year. The release of Cincoriginals propelled his status as one of the strongest lyricists to come out of the South in the past few years. He’s traded bars with some of the sharpest wordsmiths in the game, proving that he can hold his own. However, he’s continued to showcase that he’s a jack of all trades capable of holding it down melodically in the booth.

Nothing shows this better than his latest offering, “Wake Up Everybody.” The rapper delivered his interpretation of the Melvin & The Blue Notes’ and Teddy Pendergrass collaboration for ESPN’s Music For The Movement/Black History Always. The studio recording of the single arrives shortly after he delivered a stunning performance of the song for  the Presidential Inauguration Committee’s “We Are One” livestream event.

Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Wake up, everybody
No more sleepin’ in bed
No more backward thinkin’
Time for thinkin’ ahead
The world has changed
So very much
From what it used to be
There is so much hatred
War and poverty

Wake up, all you teachers
Time to teach a new way
Maybe then they’ll listen
To what you have to say
‘Cause they’re the ones who’s coming up
And the world is in their hands
So when you teach the children
Teach ’em the very best you can

[Chorus:]
The world won’t get no better
If you just let it be, na, na, na, na, na, na
The world won’t get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
For you and me
For you and me
For you and me
For you and me

[Verse 2:]
Wake up, all the doctors
Make the old people well
They’re the ones who suffer
And catch all the hell
But they don’t have so very long
Before their Judgment Day
So won’t’cha make them happy
Before they pass away

Wake up, all you builders
Time to build a new land
I know we can do it
If we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do
Is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out
They do it everytime

[Chorus:]
The world won’t get no better
If you just let it be, na, na, na, na, na, na
The world won’t get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
For you and me
For you and me
For you and me
For you and me

[Vamp:]
The world won’t get no better
The hood won’t get no better
The world won’t get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
For you and me
