Tuesday Dudesday: Rappers N Rappers N Rappers

A famous philosopher once said
“Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis – When I was dead broke, man I couldn’t picture this – 50-inch screen, money green leather sofa – Got two rides, a limousine with a chauffeur”
– Notorious BIG

Whoa Whoa Whoa. BIG I heard of that guy … he was a thug … a hoodlum … a DRUG DEALER …. true true – and Socrates fondled little boys – it’s all about context people.

Which kinda sorta gets me to my topic of the day… My new favorite site for all things music (in this case Rap) related is Rap Genius.

rap_genius

This site not only breaks a lot of new and awesome music it also takes each line bit by bitbyte by byte and explains every lyric in (sometimes) painstakingly detail.

Some of my favorite include:

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, that’s why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, I’m scared of even telling you
Sometimes I’m like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I’m locked inside a cell in me, I know that there’s a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through”
– Lupe Fiasco – Words I never Said

– Kendrick Lamar – Don’t Kill My Vibe
and don’t forget…
– Jay Z – 03′ Bonnie & Clyde (dedicated to my Bonnie)
