The United States and the Philippines remain committed to a joint defense treaty amid China's exercises near Taiwan. This was stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken following the results of the ASEAN summit in Cambodia, Reuters reports.

The United States-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty was signed in 1951. The document has eight articles, but the main content is as follows: if one of the parties to the treaty is subjected to aggression by a third power, the other party to the treaty must provide it with military assistance

The situation in the region has escalated from – for the visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, the inadmissibility of which was repeatedly declared by the Chinese authorities. After getting off the plane in Taipei, the speaker of the US House of Representatives first of all stated that the main goal of the American delegation— support for “bright and dynamic” democracy in Taiwan. On August 3, the politician left the country.

Against this background, on August 4, China began large-scale military exercises that should last until Sunday. Within their framework, live firing will take place in the waters and airspace around almost the entire Taiwan. Airspace and navigation at the exercise sites will be closed. Also, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, announced the readiness of the PRC authorities to strengthen strategic cooperation with Russia.

The Philippines are negotiating with Moscow on the supply of fertilizers, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Russian Ambassador to Manila Marat Pavlov.

“As far as I know, negotiations between Philippine companies and Russian fertilizer producers are already underway,” — said the diplomat.

According to him, “the topic of fertilizer supplies is being raised by the Philippine side at the highest level.” This is one of those positions, on the import of which “health” directly depends; Philippine economy, he explained.

Pavlov recalled that in mid-July, Philippine President Marcos, who prioritizes food security and personally heads the country's Ministry of Agriculture, said that the issue of providing it with affordable fertilizers is a priority.

Against the background of sanctions against Russia, which is one of the largest producers of fertilizers and grains, world food prices have reached record levels, and the UN has warned of the risk of starvation in poor countries.

After that, the US Treasury excluded fertilizers, medical equipment and medicines from Russia from the sanctions list. Washington allowed the export, import and re-export of these goods. At the same time, sanctions against most Russian financial, insurance and logistics companies continue to apply.

Philippines abandons 16 Russian helicopters due to US sanctions

The deal was canceled due to Philippines fears of violating the Countering America's Adversaries Act (CAATSA), said the country's ambassador to the United States, Jose Manuel Romualdez

The Philippine government refused to buy 16 Russian military transport Mi-17 helicopters for fear of US sanctions, officials told AP.

According to former Defense Secretary Delphine Lorenzana (now head of the government agency responsible for converting former military bases into business centers), the 12.7 billion Philippine pesos (about $228 million) contract was signed in November, with an advance payment made in January. Its amount is not disclosed. According to the agreement «Sovtechnoexport» was supposed to deliver helicopters in about two years.

Lorenzana said he canceled the deal in June, before the end of his ministerial term, with the approval of then-president Rodrigo Duterte. “We could face sanctions,” — he noted. According to Lorenzana, Washington could express its dissatisfaction if the deal was continued due to the deterioration of relations between the United States and Russia. The ex-minister added that Washington knew about Manila's decision to refuse to buy Russian Mi-17s and could offer the country similar helicopters.

In turn, Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Manuel Romualdes said the deal was canceled due to fears of violating the Countering America's Adversaries Act. (CAATSA). In accordance with it, countries and companies cooperating with Russian enterprises and organizations from the sanctions list may fall under US sanctions. This law was adopted in 2017.

Mi-17— multi-purpose helicopter, which is used for passenger and cargo transportation. It can carry up to 26 passengers and up to 8 tons of cargo.

In April, India decided to postpone the purchase of 48 Mi-17V5 military transport helicopters from Russia. According to ANI and India Today sources in the government, the decision is not related to the Russian military operation in Ukraine, it was made long before it began— in support of the national program of medium-lift helicopters Make in India, adopted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Headie One – Edna Medley (Live at the BRIT Awards 2021) Lyrics

[Part I: “Know Better”]

[Intro: Headie One & Newsreader]
Some say it’s a symptom of societal failings–
It is a form of aggressive rap music known as drill
They should know better

[Part II: “Ain’t It Different”]

[Intro: Headie One & Lady Saw]
(Baby, are you up for this?)
Suh, suh, s-s-s-suh
(B-B-B-Baby, are you up for this?)

[Verse 1]
Ain’t it different? (One) I link my ting in LA
But I can’t fly to the States ‘cah I got too much convictions (Jheeze)
Apparently all I talk is prison, but I don’t know no different (No)
‘Cah I was in jail up north, runnin’ another coalition (Turn)
Fresh home, I bought coke and whipped it
I put some roses where my wrist is
You ain’t ever made a birthday cake from Digestive biscuits (Told me turm, ayy)
Will have to take lemon juice to a piss test (Piss test, s-s-s-suh)
Every day I look up to the Lord, give thanks for all this litness (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Come home, fresh out the system, gymnast
Rollin’ with smoke on my jones
Pigs want all the camera on me, not the one from Dipset (One)
I still can’t mix pleasure with business, sorry, princess (Princess)
I come a long way from broke days (Turn, turn)
I got to work and fixed it

[Chorus: Lady Saw & Headie One]
Baby, are you up for this?
I am feeling hot tonight
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah
Baby, are you up for this? (Ain’t it different?)
I am feeling hot tonight (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah (Suh, suh, s-s-s-suh)

[Verse 2: AJ Tracey & Headie One]
Ain’t it different?
Spent like ten years grindin’
Covered in diamonds, never been minin’
Came through, man’s still shinin’
‘Cah I was in Homeford House with the pack
And now I’m in Dubai, limin’
Me and Headz landed abroad, two new kettles, perfect timin’
The new whip’s white on white, peanut butter, rose gold linin’
You can catch me in Central
Car so dumb, when I press this button, it’s gone, I don’t do rentals
Air 1’s fresher than menthol
I don’t wanna get ish lit, but the way that bro grip sticks ain’t gentle
Summer time shootouts, big big loot-outs
Get corn stuck in your dental (Turn, turn, turn, turn)

[Chorus: Lady Saw, Headie One & AJ Tracey]
Baby, are you up for this? (Ain’t it different? Let’s go)
I am feeling hot tonight (Aight, aight-a)
Ready for the bump and grind
Wheel it back and run it one more time, yeah, yeah (How we comin’? Yeah, yeah)

[Verse 3: Headie One & AJ Tracey]
Oi, Headie, what we sayin’?
Turn, turn, turn
It’s been a tough year (Facts)
But teamwork gets the dream workin’ (On God)
It’s only right that we show love to the key workers
I’m gassed up when I’m leavin’ the booth
And I rep for the kids, I don’t need an excuse
The government say “Eat out to help”
But won’t help Rashford when he’s feedin’ the yutes
What else can the drill yutes rap ’bout (What else?)
Apart from my worst days? (Facts)
You see me on stage but I was in jail three birthdays
Standin’ here at the BRITs, but we ain’t seen as British
We ain’t finished, we got more plaques for the critics

[Part III: “Princess Cuts”]

[Intro: Young T]
Woo, ayy
[Chorus: Young T, Young T & Bugsey]
Got twenty on my wrist, I’m going crazy
Canary princess cuts for my baby
Out the window, I can hear the Old Bailey
Sippin’ LOUIS XIII, I’m with a Casey
I made a wish, I got it, then I made a wish list
Bust case, was no witness
A hundred in a duffle bag, I got a big fish
Shorty, you need assistance

[Verse 1: Headie One, Bugsey & Young T]
My young boy got the stick like Moses with the Israelites (Uh)
Tellin’ them opp boys, “It’s on sight”
They ain’t outside, they stay inside
We can’t party if we can’t get the tray inside (Turn, turn, turn, turn)
Shoe cocaine white, teeth Colgate white (Told me turn, ayy)
You know what it gets like, I just gotta step– (Told me turn)
Trackie and my sliders, I got beef that I still don’t let slide (What?)
All those double C’s, I got a Chanel side (What?)
I’m really blowin’ trees in the Middle East (Ayy)
Is you from the Philippines or Vietnamese? (Suh, s-s-s-suh, What?)
I don’t dance, but I can shake a leg (Told me turn)
I one-two step, Billie Jean, Billie Jean (Turn, turn, turn, turn)

[Verse 2: Bugsey, Young T & Headie One]
Heard you want a shoulder you can cry on (Whoop)
Rely on (Ayy), and you hope that really is me
Blow chronic, my rose gold flourish
I hold no solace, sweet wet coochie on me (Turn, turn)
Boasy and my baby gorgeous
A likkle mortgage, I need them flawless
I lick my thumb and I’m runnin’ it through these commas
Louis orders, get me more of this

[Chorus: Young T, Young T & Bugsey]
Got twenty on my wrist, I’m going crazy
Canary princess cuts for my baby
Out the window, I can hear the Old Bailey
Sippin’ LOUIS XIII, I’m with a Casey
I made a wish, I got it, then I made a wish list
Bust case, was no witness
A hundred in a duffle bag, I got a big fish
Shorty, you need assistance
Shorty, you need assistance

[Outro: Headie One]
Steady, lit

Kt Gorique – Tous Les Soirs Du Monde Lyrics (feat. Hugo Tsr)

[Couplet 1: Hugo TSR]
La rage s'en mêle, même les vieux tiennent des barres d'acier
Y a pas grand-chose dans la gamelle mais la poubelle est rassasiée
Chaleur d'un quartier, le froid du tonfa pour faire le contraste
Les schlags sont à quatre pattes, ils recherchent pas leurs verres de contact
Le temps je commence à le sentir, à quoi ça sert de grandir ?
J'lirais encore mon âge au fond des verres de cantine
Plus d'horaires, toute la nuit y a ma lumière dans l'bat'
J'rap en braille, j'veux plus atteindre la lune, elle est plus belle d'en bas
En direct de la Suisse, c'est TSR avec KT Gorique
On tue l'aprèm à fumer de la zeb et faire valser nos rimes
Toujours encouragé, ça m'évite d’être enfouraillé
Tu finis tout pâle, on t'rejoue too High en full HD
Humeur pirate, il faut qu'j'aille voir la mer des Philippines
Vos classique c'est de la merde, j'écoute Mozart, j'm'en tape de Billie Jean
Ça s'pète la voix, il fait pas froid pourtant tu claques des dents
La rue c'est pas un yop, tu l'auras pas même si t'as craché dedans

[Refrain: Hugo TSR & KT Gorique]x2
Tous les soirs du monde
Des rimes nocturnes sur un opéra triste
Ça veut chopper d’la tise, ça dort le jour pour être opé la nuit
Cigarette et stylo, si j’m’arrête
Si j'me terre loin de la lumière
Yo crois-tu que je vais disparaître ?
[Couplet 2 : KT Gorique]
J’me souviens plus depuis quand mais j’me souviens plus depuis que
J’suis aussi nostalgique, je vieillis dans ma tête mais garde ma vigueur
Prototype alternatif, j’ignore le videur
Me plonge dans le vide dans un rituel lorsque la lune se bride
Ce soir encore, je squatte le parc et le réverbère
L’espoir s’effrite au creux d’une main sous les yeux de l’éternel
J’y crois encore au fond bien que victime du maléfice
Manie autodestructrice quand l’autre moi a l’mal de vivre
Rendez-vous au crépuscule, j’amène la boombox et les assonances
Commotion cérébrale pour les passants tant le flow est assommant
Tout autant que ce fendant qu’ils ingurgitent

Plus vite ce qu’ils ne voient donc ils passent, c'est leurs corps qui se cassent
Jeunes de la Suisse ou du 18, les origines m’importent peu
Suffit d’être un être humain pour lire la peine dans n’importe quels yeux
Les trajets éclairés d’une bougie esquissent l’ombre d’une noctambule
Réveil brutal, les rayons du soleil transpercent ma bulle

[Refrain: Hugo TSR & KT Gorique]x2
Tous les soirs du monde
Des rimes nocturnes sur un opéra triste
Ça veut chopper d’la tise, ça dort le jour pour être opé la nuit
Cigarette et stylo, si j’m’arrête
Si j'me terre loin de la lumière
Yo crois-tu que je vais disparaître ?
[Couplet 3 : KT Gorique]
Les schémas se répètent, j’veux cher-mar vers mes rêves
Chez moi c’est des tête-têtes entre le courage et l’échec
Je me lève et j’ai des cernes, me contrarier qu’ils essayent
Caractère animal, ne t’approche pas d’un fauve qui saigne
Invisible sont mes chaines et le liquide que je chiale
Y’a rien de très spécial, j’écris la vie du bas de l’échelle
Moins solide qu’un chêne, parfois mes racines m’échappent
Sur mon chemin, des échardes, c’est chaud, gare à ta chair
Mes nuits me coutent plus cher que des vacances plus que méritées
Normal, des tornades de pensées torturent mon esprit malade
Je trace des balafres d’apaches sur mon cahier et sur ma face
Même si je n’en ai pas l’âge, mon corps me lâche
J’y pense et puis j’oublie, défonce ainsi le beat d’Art Aknid
Avec Hugo en cabine ou bien sur scène tous les soirs du monde ont le même sort
Rapper nos textes très fort, sans dress code, on met l’score

[Refrain: Hugo TSR & KT Gorique]x2
Tous les soirs du monde
Des rimes nocturnes sur un opéra triste
Ça veut chopper d’la tise, ça dort le jour pour être opé la nuit
Cigarette et stylo, si j’m’arrête
Si j'me terre loin de la lumière
Yo crois-tu que je vais disparaître ?

Terrorvision – Surrender Lyrics

Mother told me, yes she told me
I’d meet girls like you
She also told me stay away
You’ll never know what you’ll catch

Just the other day I heard
Of a soldier’s falling off
Some Indonesian junk
That’s going ’round

Mommy’s alright, Daddy’s alright
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don’t give yourself away

Father says your mother’s right
She’s really up on things
Before we married Mommy served
On the WACs in the Philippines

Now I had heard the WACs recruited
Old maids for the war
But Mommy isn’t one of those
I’ve known her all these years

Mommy’s alright, Daddy’s alright
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don’t give yourself away

Whatever happened to all this season’s
Losers of the year
Every time I got to thinking
Where’d they disappear

Then I woke up, Mom and Dad
Are rolling on the couch
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling
Got my Kiss records out

Mommy’s alright, Daddy’s alright
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don’t give yourself away

Away…

Chris Brown Wants To Call Rihanna & Karrueche and Tell Them “F*** You”

Chris Brown has been inching to call up his ex-girlfriends Rihanna and Karrueche Tran and tell them a big “f*** you.”

Breezy went on Instagram yesterday to express his desires to pick up his phone and call up somebody and tell them just two words. His fans already concluded that he is specifically talking about his exes given his recent issues with Karrueche where she got a five-year restraining order against him. The R&B singer thinks that she was merely using him to promote her new TV show Claws.

“You know them days man when you’re thinking about somebody and you just want to call them up and just say f*** you! f*** you!…,” Chris Brown yelled. You can watch the hilarious video below. Am sure a lot of us feel like that at some point so we can all relate to Chris Brown on this one. Nevertheless, the video is hilarious and you should watch it. Breezy is currently working on his new album “Heartbreak On A Full Moon” but there is no word yet on when it will arrive. Some recent publication suggests that it could arrive sometime later this year but no one from Breezy’s camp confirmed that news.

In related Chris Brown news, the “Loyal” singer is suing a promoter from the Philippines who he said tried to extort him. According to his court docs, Breezy claimed that Jose Victor Los Banos Biongco tried to extort him out of $300,000 in 2014 when he was contracted to perform at a New Year’s Eve gig. The singer had to reschedule the gig because of some passport issues and he eventually performed in July 2015. TMZ reported that following his performance, Chris Brown attempted to leave his hotel the next day but armed men wouldn’t allow him to leave and told him that he would have to pay Jose Victor Los Banos Biongco $300,000 in order to leave the hotel. He didn’t buy and called up an immigration lawyer who eventually got him out of the country.

Seems the incident shook Chris Brown so now he is suing for emotional distress. Can’t blame the guy, because people file lawsuits him every other month for things he has nothing to do with.

Who is #chrisbrown talking about ???

Musicals – Chess – One Night In Bangkok lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bangkok! Oriental setting
And the city don’t know what the city is getting
The crème de la crème of the chess world in a
Show with everything but Yul Brynner

[Verse 2]
Time flies, doesn’t seem a minute
Since the Tyrolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change, but don’t you know that when you
Play at this level it’s no ordinary venue

[Hook]
It’s Iceland or the Philippines or
Hastings or this place!

[Chorus]
One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls aren’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

[Verse 3]
One town’s very like another
When your head’s down over your pieces, brother

It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city.

Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town…

Tea, girls, warm and sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

Get Thai’d! You’re talking to a tourist
Whose every move’s among the purest.

I get my kicks above the waistline, Sunshine.

[Chorus]
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

[Verse 4]
Siam’s gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha.

Thank God I’m only watching the game, controlling it.

[Verse 5]
I don’t see you guys rating
The kind of mate I’m contemplating
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you.

So you better go back to your bars, your
Temples, your massage parlours…

[Chorus]
One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me.

[Outro]
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

The Oemons – Mister King Kebabu lyrics

A long time ago dating back for centuries
Travelling men from afar were searching for a place to be
The siblings, Mister and King were the fruits of the royal family (Kebab)
They tagged along Ababu and formed their angry little posse called

Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Is my home

One day, an idea just came up something that would make some money
They would swim to the Philippines and sell their food that were spicy
They huddled to come up with a name something that would be so catchy
They thought the locals were that lame
So they named the place stereotypically

Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Is my home

The only mystery for me something that I can’t see
Why the white stuff makes food so tasty How could this be?
It could be mystic gypsy dust, a secret recipe
It could be love juice from the cock of the Great Khali

Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Mister! King Kebabu
Is my home
