about

VOODOO ECONOMICS (WolfMan), the second single off of ÌFÉ's forthcoming sophomore album moves as a modern day funeral song, written as a lament for Adolf Wolfgang Siemon-Otero, a beloved friend and musician gunned down in the streets of San Juan Puerto Rico, the target of a drug trafficking dispute. The song, built around sacred Afro Cuban Bata rhythms and prayers plays a powerful procession, honoring those that have fallen while stirring up a cache of questions, principally among them, why do we want so badly to be rich? And what does right and wrong ultimately mean in a society that judges us more on our outcomes than our methods?

What's the cost, it's a lot diablo Wolf man

Mucho moguls, mi nuh know diablo Wolf man

Touch the ground, touch the soul diablo Wolf man

VERSE TWO

Diablo Wolf man, diablo Wolf man...

Catch a case, catch a flight diablo Wolf man

Get the call, get the sight diablo Wolf man

Pick a bone, pick a fight diablo Wolf man

Make 'em envy, it's a right diablo Wolf man

Kick back, mama's in the drop diablo Wolf man

Live long, maybe maybe not diablo Wolf man

Cut that, we could make a lot diablo Wolf man

Sex, some people pay for that diablo Wolf man

Zinc shack, shooters in the back diablo Wolf man

Take talk, never ever that diablo Wolf man

Six stacks, three up in the lac, diablo Wolf man

Rick shot Rita in the back, diablo Wolf man

Death, some people pay for that diablo Wolf man

Cock back, we could take it back diablo Wolf man

Dinero We got it
Ibaye Bayen Tonu
