Frontline
Pa Salieu Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

They don't know about the block life
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't on what I'm on right
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't grow around the block side
Still doing mazza inna frontline
Niggas still gully in the six side
Still doing mazza in your frontline

Bad man run up in your bando
Knick-knack, mash that work like Rambo
Whip that white I feel like Django
Shut down, lock off, now them man dem know
Real bad man, who you talking to?
He got soaked by that dark black youte
See me I'm that big bad wolf
How many bandos did I run through?
Gambian brudda, Mr K. Kunte
Follow my rules, still I rise and take
Graveyard shifts of the day and night
Just my food that these fiends wan' take
For my money I make the ground elevate
All day pray for my sins, for my devilish ways
For my money I make the ground elevate
With the spinner on his devilish waist

They don't know about the block life
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't on what I'm on right
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't grow around the block side
Still doing mazza inna frontline
Niggas still gully in the six side
Still doing mazza in the frontline

They wanna save my life
Won't stop belling on my Lyca
I swear I fell in love with the nina, nina, nina oh
They wanna take my life
Won't stop belling on my Lyca
I swear I fell in love with the nina, nina, nina oh

Clout rapping like they gully
But they've never touched botty
Passion for the beef, I ain't sorry
Fell in love with Shelly, nickname Betty
What I say better do now, everything messy
Starboy are grinding, tryna hit the belly
Shh, got chinged for the talk pon the netty
Bro got links for the desi, that means I too
Double cross I, then it's

They don't know about the block life
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't on what I'm on right
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't grow around the block side
Still doing mazza inna frontline
Niggas still gully in the six side
Still doing mazza in your frontline

They don't know about the block life
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't on what I'm on right
Still doing mazza inna frontline
They ain't grow around the block side
Still doing mazza inna frontline



Niggas still gully in the six side
Still doing mazza in the frontline

Overall Meaning

The song "Frontline" by Pa Salieu is a powerful expression of his life in the "block," where he has experienced violence and criminal activity but also gained a sense of community and resilience. Throughout the song, he emphasizes the disconnect between those who do not understand this life and those who live it every day. He repeats the phrase "Still doing mazza inna frontline," which means that he continues to face danger and struggle despite the challenges that come with living in this environment.


Pa Salieu also touches on themes of power and survival in his lyrics. He describes himself as a "real bad man" who has conquered many obstacles and runs through "bandos" (abandoned buildings where illicit activities take place). He name-drops Gambian musician K.K. Kunte, indicating that he is proud of his heritage and culture. He also speaks about the constant threat to his life, with people "belling on my Lyca" (calling his phone) and trying to take him down.
