On Farak, Divine pays respect to his mother who has always been a pillar of support in his life. He looks back at his achievements and takes time to appreciate the positive’s in his life.
He starts of by setting the record straight. With Indian Hip-Hop gaining traction, every rapper claims to be desi nowadays. But Divine questions how many Indian rappers actually speak the truth in their songs?
Mithaas ka parda faash hai
Kal kisne dekha aaj jile
Teri antim toh raaz hai
Umr chaar jeb mein jhol ke rupay pade paach hai
Tere liye woh toffee
Meri misson usse banana 8 hai
Divine speaks to you the truth and will expose all the sweet talkers and their lies. No one has seen what tomorrow has to offer, so live like it’s your final day on this planet.
He’s seen a lot on the streets. Young ones make a little money in questionable ways. But Divine thinks long term. While youngsters usually spend their hard-earned money rapidly and recklessly, his mission is to double his income. He thinks like an investment banker.
Farak sirf itna mujhe neeche tujhe upar
Bas wahi thodi si alag baat hai
Jo tere sabe khaas hai
Wohi zehrile saap hai
Dhundne nikle pyaar jab
Teri maa hain tere paas mein
Eventually he’s realized that both suffered in the process. The only difference is that they suffered for different reasons. Divine spits some honest bars on this verse. The ones closest to you can sometimes turn out to be poisonous snakes.
He questions those who get lost in the search for love, without realizing that your mother is always besides you.
59 Gully Gang chote ithihaas hai -2
Nakli rapper nakli gangsteron ka sarvanaash hai
Sikke jee lein jee ke seekh lein kabhi meri baatein -2
The morning arrives only when you learn to endure the dark nights. His clique 59 Gully Gang attempt to make their own little history.
Divine has had enough and will put an end to all the fake rappers and gangsters running on the streets. Learn and live. Live and learn from your experiences. If you hear his rhymes closely, you’ll probably learn quite a bit about living life.
Thoda sa Farak mera hara tera garad bhai
Thoda sa Farak main hoon har cheez mein saras bhai
Thoda sa alag kyunki tere mein mere mein Farak bhai -2
Divine reminds you that he’s a little different from the rest. The honest ones stand by him always. He’s a little different in the way he looks compared to the others.
The difference is, he makes sure he’s good at everything he does. He’s unlike the others because he’s different in the way he moves and spits his rhymes.
FACT- Divine raps an impressive 36 words in 9 seconds on the hook of FARAK. That’s an average of 4 words per second.
Divine lives and works hard for his mother. To make her proud through his work. He has nothing to hide from her. While he drinks when’s he’s happy, he reveals that at times, he drinks when he’s sad as well.
Ghum mein bhi pi raha hoon
Sar se toh dheela hoon
Kyu sadkon pe seekha hoon
Who kheel hi nahi hain jisme
Haarke na jeeta hoon
Jo bolta hoon lala woh mein
Asliyat mein jeeta hoon
Divine points out that he’s a little crazy because of the experiences, that the streets have taught him. There’s no game where he’s lost but eventually has gone on to win it.
Suggesting that he’s managed to overcome every hurdle in life through hard work and persistence. He’s a man of his words and lives the life that he raps about.
Tumne zaalim dardh bi jeele
Koi saaf koi safere ek deete doogna lere
Ghutno par hai salaam tujhko
Shukriya papa tumne banaya
Khudko apna baap mujhko
Maara mujko tooda tumne saara kuch toh
Chod diya us raani dil ko chaiye tha sahara unko
Divine pays respect to his mother and wonders how she single handedly endured the pain and struggles during his early days. There are 2 kinds of people in this world- victims and assaulters.
He goes down on his knees and thanks his parents for making him who he is. He thanks his father for being there. His father beat him up and broke a lot of things in the house. He left his mother when she needed his support and backing.
Khoon se nahi par tum hi mere bhai log ho
Baaki bahut aate jaate
Khote tere saath hai khoota time khate
Khote kasmein vaade
Agar tu khoya hai pyaar ke talaash mein
Teri maa teri paas hai tu kayke talaash mein
Teri maa teri paas mein
aur tu pyaar ke talaash mein -3
Despite experiencing massive success, Divine hasn’t forgotten his brothers. They might not be his blood brothers but they’re the only ones who he considers has true brothers. There are numerous others who enter and exit his life. But his brothers are permanent.
He’s thankful that he has true friends besides him. Because, Divine looks around and sees fake friends surrounding the others. These fakes ones waste your time and make fake promises.
In the end, Divine has a message – “If you’re lost in the search for love, stop. You have your mother besides you”. He wonders why you go searching across the world to find love when it’s right besides you.
