Lido Pimienta Shares “No Pude”, First New Song In Three Years – Listen + Watch Video Now

“Oh it pains me / Oh, in my heart / Oh, it pains me / Oh, in my heart / I could not open up to you / to the level I can now / I just could not give myself to you (anymore) / I could not even see you and could not even resist it – now / I just could not give myself to you (anymore)”

“No pude means: I could not. In the context of the song it means something to the effect of, ‘I am tired of trying’,” Pimienta explained. “The words speak directly to the sense of dread and constant anxiety my home country gives me. ‘No Pude’ sums up the love / hate relationship I have with Colombia. I hold Colombia close to my heart and my soul, but that loves turns into rage and shame as fast as a match takes to burn.”

With a tinker-toy beat from JetsonMade, “Trap Jumpin” demonstrates Mexico’s myriad talents, from his infectious ad-libs, to his ease with melody, to his ability to mix flexing with storytelling: “Mexico was skippin’ school but in the trap I’m doin’ math/Beat the pack just like a boss, I gotta hit it with a jab/I got money flowin’ in like the water in the bath/Know I made my momma mad cause I took my daddy’s path.” In the video, Mexico cooks up at his trap house, mobbing with his homies and serving his hood’s fiends. “Trap Jumpin” is the latest video from Life Of An Outlaw, Mexico’s upcoming project, following the video for the “Trap Boyz” (Remix) (192k views on YouTube).
