Chosen Reveals the “Purpose of Life” MV

The Chosen One has released the music video to a track called the “Purpose of Life”, that mixes in English rhymes with a sampled Vietnamese hook. The semi-autobiographical track is a pretty good mix of music and culture, especially when coupled with the MV. Although having a mic in the middle of a field does look a bit silly. Lyrics? After the break, of course.

Intro:

Đời phiêu lưu là thế
Không biết đến ngày mai
Nên giờ đây mới đắng cay
Ngồi trứơc tấm gương sáng rọi vào đó mới thấy
Thân xác hoang tàn không nhận ra

Verse1 :

Sometimes the road to life is hard to handle, play your cards right,
let it deal go gamble, take a risk in the music biz, I’m here to
change the world and just teach these kids, but it’s hard, no 9 to 5
job, no respect on my career going against all odds, shuffle it up
like songs in an ipod, i pray to god or chua or even Allah, August 3
1983, I was born as me, I was destined to be, an entertainer for the
world to hear and see, a rap musician better known as an MC, i’m a
poet, i’m young and i’m focused, focus on the arts just to be one of
the dopest, all the glitters ain’t gold so better take notice, my llfe
is like a movie faster than a roller coaster.

Hook:

Giờ ta chẳng còn chi
Mãi trắng tay mà thôi
Đời bạc gian lắm phủ phàng
Tiền có kiếm như nước rồi cũng sẽ trôi hết
Tay không trắng tay lại vẹn không

Verse 2:

I cant erase all those who playa hate, smile in your face, and you
know they fake, 808’s and heartbreaks, put you in your place, go ahead
and give me space, i’mma be in first place, wouldve been different if
i did some ass kissing, an opportunity of lifetimes so just listen,
wouldve been a doctor, a teacher or even a lawyer, world class chef
working in the kitchen, but i chose this path, wasn’t good at math,
all I did was subtract, rapping all so fast, yo this fool can’t rap,
yo he sound so whack, ching chong chang, yo he trying to be black,
that was part of my past, use it as my motivation, times went by yet
i’m still elevating, party all day like it was a celebration, should I
just quit and finish my education.

Hook

Giờ ta chẳng còn chi
Mãi trắng tay mà thôi
Đời bạc gian lắm phủ phàng
Tiền có kiếm như nước rồi cũng sẽ trôi hết
Tay không trắng tay lại vẹn không
