Bakhtawar Bhutto’s Rap Tribute

January 7, 2009

Bakhtawar pays tribute to her mother by singing a rap song.


Rest in peace

Murdered my grandfather

Benazir Bhutto Murdered

Both my uncles 1953 to 2007

December 27th and now my mother

Shot in the back of ear

Murdered legendary mother

She’s got crazy courage

Dear mom if you can hear me

Crazy intelligence I’ve got a few things to say to you

I never got a chance to say

But if I could have Yo…

I would take the pain away (Chorus)

A picture I’m trying to speak

But they ain’t responding back

I’m not responsible for that

I can’t even begin to think

You went walking through that door

I’m waiting, crying, thinking some more

You did so much through your time

And knew the risk was to your life

But nothing stopping you could a go

Hey that’s my mom

She crazy braved us

Despite that threat

She went there and stayed

October 17th, Still strong

2 bomb blasts stopping the throng

3 million around to meet you

And all the cases will seep through

Innocent They all believed in you

Your enemies feared your presence

You had beauty and intelligence

Everything you did relevant

Shot in the back of your ear

Still young at 54

Murdered with three kids left behind

You were all in their hearts

Millions, they all fell apart

Cause there’s no point living in this life

I would take away the pain (Chorus)

Perhaps everything’s a bit clearer

But I look in the mirror

I saw the question of reality

You are probably genuine bravery

How could you be taken from me?

My eyes, they keep getting sore

When we prayed at your grave

My knees, they just hit the floor

I didn’t know that’s possible

To us you were unstoppable

Trust there is no bright day

IfΒ  I could take the pain away

Walking in your room and office

You’ll always be back you promised

Still got the sense of your presence

Your eyes, your smile, the essence

Perfection, your beauty and elegance

The epitome of benevolence

You were counting down the days

To pray at your dad’s grave

Character spoke with this art

This was your chosen path

Another hole in dad’s heart

Welcomed you with open arms

You need no one else with your charm

The cowardly bullet stole your life from the fullest

And that’s what you could do

No one dare touch your shoes

An angel in blue

Hands raised to the sky

God does what he choose

I would take the pain away (Chorus)

How you wished me happy 18th

A whole month in advance

Cause somehow you knew it would be your last chance

The nightmares, they keep coming

My mom just keeps running

Her last phone call

The day before the gunning

Why did you have to go?

Why did you have to leave?

Aseefa is only 14 and I ain’t even ready

I barely 18

A bullet in the back of your head

You were never afraid

You didn’t even duck down

Grinning even when you lay

Still looked you were sleeping

Putting flowers on your grave

The whole world was weeping

That smile on your face

You body laying on the ice

The way you waved goodbye

It’s all I can think of

How you wrote a will

You were prepared till the end

My mother was murdered

I don’t even comprehend

Was it worth dying for?

I’m walking through screened doors

Condolences and dialogues

No comfort or ease

I’m begging you please

God bless the deceased

Let my mother rest in peace

I would take away the pain (Chorus)

    edda wassa rap song?
    and now bakhtawar is also “Bhutto” after Bilawal πŸ˜€
    who you guess is the next ? πŸ˜€

    DFR: Well initially all three of them like to add ‘Bhutto’ with their names. So the next one obviously is Aseefa πŸ˜›

    And rap songs are usually that long… you know that’s why they are ‘rap’ :S

    Saad you are sick and psycho yourself. The children have lost their mother and Bakhtawar is paying her tributes the way she thinks is nice. You people are heartless beasts.

    that was a general observation and not necessarily applies here

  15. Ayesha permalink

    Someone has got emotional πŸ˜› Well my take is that she is a teenager so perhaps that’s her way of achieving catharsis.
    Fatima Bhutto went through the same but she showed more composure and maturity as she expressed her grief through poetry. So to each his own.

    Asma: Right, she lost a mother. And to her it meant a lot because BB spent the last 8-9 years of her life with kids. It’s a long time to develop rapport and one is bound to feel the absence :S

    Many people used BB’s death as their launching pad. Look at Zardari (his political career), Bilawal etc πŸ˜›

  22. Asma Ahsan permalink
    January 8, 2009 10:08 pm

    Hmm – I read the review whose link Saad posted

    I think I have an idea what went on there. The kid grew up in western influence – right? and in west they like to pay tributes to anyone who was reknowned through music.

    In Pakistan as culture is different, we dont expect a daughter to come out and sing a song, especially when its a well known person like her mother. That is why its so shocking for all. The kids need to learn local culture if they wish to be a part of the politcal scene.

    Had it been a nobody singing for a nobody, nobody would have bothered even hearing it.

  23. Ayesha permalink
    January 8, 2009 10:20 pm

    No, this kiddo can’t be the daughter of the east πŸ˜›

    They sure have Western influence and it’s kind of in their blood (inherited from forefathers). You must remember the time when the entire web was buzzing with gossips after the release of Bilawal’s photos with his girlfriends last year.

  24. Saad Ibrahim permalink
    January 8, 2009 11:54 pm

    if they are influenced by the western culture then what are they doing in Pakistan?
    btw that rap song didn’t sound serious to me!

    I am not saying this actually the stars of Pakistan’s destiny are pointing towards this fact πŸ˜€

  33. January 11, 2009 7:36 pm

    People, please do not forget the fact that the kid has lost her mother, who despite being a controversial public figure was after all also a MOTHER. Losing her must have been awful just as much as it’d be awful for us.

  34. January 13, 2009 7:08 pm

    Hey all!
    song is nice! I didnt expect that much good rap from lil chick, she is 18!
    well I heard she met with rap singers for learning etc!
    It seems Saad Ibrahim is rap specialist? lol
    no harsh feelings!

  35. January 13, 2009 7:36 pm

    Well i totally agree with Ayesha. the stars of Pakistan are really indicating worse scenarios.This is a fact that no matter what, their loss is huge. The rap song sung by Bakhtawar, was her way of giving a tribute to her mother although there could have been several other ways to do so too yet she chose to pay the tribute by singing a rap song. It seems that maybe she wishes to become famous and wants to be recognized.

    By the way i dont know why Saad Ibrahim said that Bilawal is a bisexual, i mean what was the need to say that anyway!!

    I am only here to discuss comments related to SAAD IBRAHIM. First I want to give him the title of “MF”, after reading the comments.

    Seriously I dont know what PPP has done with either SAAD IBRAHIM or his family.

    I wonder how SAAD IBRAHIM figured out about the bi-sexuality of Bilawal Bhutto,


  37. Saad Ibrahim permalink
    January 15, 2009 10:46 am

    haha πŸ˜€ LOL!
    well remember that Facebook page of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari? it said he is bisexual πŸ˜€
    and i said it just becuase it came to my mind when Ayesha brought up the subject of those Pictures of his with his girlfriends
    The title of MF should be given to people who loot and plunder and misuse their power, they deserve it more

  38. January 15, 2009 4:22 pm

    Can some one post the link of the face book page of Bilawal bhutoo which said that he is a Bi-sexual..

    Well, disappointing comments from Saad and Ayesha. BB was a great leader and was only a hope for Paki people.

    Every body has its own way to tribute. is it make any difference if she sings for her mother. You PPLE must acknowldege and understand the pain which this family has gone through.

    Gold Bless all Bhuttos.

    i have a word “as****” for all those here around who instead of feeling the pain of bb’s kids point out at their character n lives.
    you ppl are jus sick.. and seems like ya can’t think with your own dint of mind.. bloody blockheads.. dont follow wt common gendry of idiots talk.. jus see the realities..
    bb cud live happily wth her kids aftr she luckily escaped khi bombing.. yet she preffered to stay in pakistan, jus to fight against the khakhi fascists n bring a demorcracy, a path lead by great bhutto earlier..
    wts the point for bakhtawar to become a singer, why wud she want to be famous thru such a way..? she’s the daughter of late queen and present day king.. she’s already a princess.. all bloody as*****, thinkin so cheap just stop pointing out n see into your bloody collars before talking abt great bhutto family..
    i salute the bhuttos, the leaders pakistan evr had!
    all others r either businessmen or khaki fascists..

    @ n.a abro

    If some one loses his or her mother that doesnt wash out all the sins of that person or of that family. The shortcomings and mistakes made by the leaders of peoples party or the corruption which is there in every leader of every party would still remain there. And people would always criticise that…!!

    The other thing about Bakhtawar’s wish to be famous.. Yes it is true that she wants to be famous. Other wise she wouldnt have sung that song. Rap singers are considered cool in the western world and thats what every young girl or boy would want.. to be famous and known as a cool young rapper. No doubt she is the daughter of a late former priminester and a present President of a third world country… Still she isnt famous in the world. Neither was Bilawal before becoming the chair person of the party.. and Fatima Bhutto is also not famous and well known yet.. unless she too does something or is given some title or something.. I didnt even know these kids before the death of BB (and im sure there are many people who like me didnt know them) I still didnt even know Fatima bhutto (i just saw the name in the above comments) cuz she is not that well known. So u cant deny the fact that Bakhtawar wants to be famous..

    No doubt BB was a great leader and Bhutto was a greater leader… but sorry to say that the present pepole’s party have not come upto the expectations of the people of Pakistan. And that is the reason which is forcing everyone to criticise each and every move and decision they’re making. Including Bakhtawar’s singing a rap song !!
