Vietnamese rap queen Suboi performs “Đời” live from the 88 Shrine

Suboi is breaking barriers and taking no prisoners.

Lyrics in English:
Settled in my blanket at one o’clock
Playing video games with my headphones on
Suddenly a crazy motherfucker
Rang our door bell like he’s performing a ritual
My dad had to get up
“Whats going on at this hour?” I said, as his annoyed daughter
Interrupting a song that was playing “ Dệt Tầm Gai” “ Seriously who?”
Why not just wait until tomorrow?
“Or is it just some kids pranking”
I took off my headphones
When I heard the sound of footsteps stumbling on the stairs, my head spun.
I gave a scowl
How come my Dad let them up?
Bloodshot face in the middle of the night
Complaining to myself
The sound of footsteps coming closer and getting louder
My heart beating like a “beat”
Maybe something bad is happening!
Knocking on the door, yelling “ Su! Open the door”
Suddenly I saw two cops
My sister told me in tears our Dad wanted to jump off the roof
Then he said he was joking
I cried “Dad, what have I done to you?”
It was the wrong time to harvest
But life
Its just unpredictable, unexpected
Live with your heart!
Life
Unpredictable, unexpected!
Life!
Lie with your heart!
Life
Unpredictable, unexpected!
Big trees must come with big roots
Climb too high, prepare to injure yourself
Then go home, pop the bottles, puff twice, aint no thang
Cool is the word, I’d wear my shades when you complain
Because a big forest shouldn’t be jealous of a leaf
And the one night, sadness came closer to life
I couldn’t believe the call from my mom and she said” Come home immediately”
My Dad got himself into an accident
That was him on the bed
with his swollen face and “ you lost your job too right Dad?”
I choked
But how did you know I held my tears inside
Theres nothing to regret now!
He raised his weak voice to me “Su, do not cry”
“Cause nothing last forever”
But life!
Unpredictable, unexpected!
Live with your heart
Life
Unpredictable, unexpected!
Life
Unpredictable, unexpected!
Live with your heart
Life!
Unpredictable, unexpected!

88 is double happiness
