and to perform

some had to snort cocaine, to act insane

but some dudes don't even do that at all

this is a thread where we pay tribute to some prime wordplay

Gza-Rza-Bsmall.jpg

sometimes, the RZA is the smooth leader of the wu-tang

other times, he is an angry dude that's tired of his old lady's shit

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tfGULPOrik

jay-z's career and mystique as a rapper is of a dude on his way out of "THE GAME"

but the dude can come out of left field and do some shit like create a mega hit from sampling "Little Orphan Annie"

he's rumored to have ghost written hundreds of solid gold hits

hell, he can even surprise you by doing some shit i don't think i've ever seen a rap artist do

which is not even appear in his own video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KhSjWZIhDQ

denizens of the thread

tell me of your beloved rap lines

rap albums

tell me of good rappers

hip hoppers

rappists

    The local outcast with a rash on my inner thigh
    Tryin' to outrun these bitches who all want me to die
    Waitin' for some rappers to die so maybe I can get a chance
    Without a song about makin' bitches dance
    I hope all the clubs close
    'Cause so many assholes trapped in one building
    Should burn like Great White shows
    And all our hope is to pose a threat
    Try to change what rap music hopes and I forget

    My favorite rap line is from Snoop Dog (or is it Dawg, I have no idea)

    Million dollar boat, yeah thats whiter then whats spilling down your throat.

    Alternatively it's Gangsters paradise.

    "Why are we so blind to see, the ones we hurt are you and me."

    Seriously though Anjin that is basically the best title this thread could possibly have and liquid swords is basically the perfect Wu-Tang CD

    here is a great Ice Cube song

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=jiCW9pSS9hg

    and here is a great GZA song

    Ghostface Killah

    Song: Beauty Jackson

    She turned around and this grown lady said hi
    I was quite stunned from the way she replied
    Peace, nice to meet ya, sweetie call me Tony Starks
    Ghost if you like ta, mind if invite ya
    over for some red wine, nice Barry White huh
    She pulled out a cigarette, hon here's a lighter
    Her voice was a slow jam, full length white mink
    Hella fine with a beauty mark on her right cheek
    When she spoke her smoke floated when it left her throat
    Spelled honey when she blew it out it turned to water word
    I was infatuated
    She put the perfume to her neck and sprayed it
    Plus the bottle was nickel plated
    It make a young girl steez yo feel outdated
    And know the married chicks shopping with they man's hated
    One stone on her finger was green, Maybeline
    Cover Girl lipstick, plump color fingertips
    Revlon face blush, oh-five-six shit
    The ashes was hangin off her stog' so she flicked it
    Damn, had to bundle up, I call goosebumps
    Plus the windchill factor had dropped, here the bus come
    I never rush one, here take my number miss
    I live alone, her face fell when I dropped the chrome
    Damn, can I have YOUR number?

    LIQUID SWORDS

    this is the GZA's magnum opus

    it proved what many people already knew about the east coast's sounds and lyrical range

    and you also knew that while rza and gza are brothers, and rza is the "leader" of sorts

    gza ain't second fiddle to anyone

    When I was little...my father was famous.
    He was the greatest samurai in the empire, and he was the shogun's decapitator.
    He cut off the heads of 131 lords...it was a bad time for the empire.

    The shogun just stayed inside his castle and never came out.

    good point

    but where does it say that the tour is associated with the Chess Fed? i know it's on their blog and all but it doesn't really mention them at all in the article

    i'm a bit disappointed that they changed the title but fuck it, now I don't have to say "the new Nas CD that has the name I can't say" every single time i post about it

    a lot of tracks from the new album have leaked on youtube, actually. there's even one trashing fox news, which i can definitely get behind. i think i'll post it now actually.

    Kanye West

    Song: Spaceship

    Man, man, man
    If my manager insults me again I will be assaulting him
    After I fuck the manager up then I'm gonna shorten the register up
    Let's go back, back to the Gap
    Look at my check, wasn't no scratch
    So if I stole, wasn't my fault
    Yeah I stole, never got caught
    They take me to the back and pat me
    Askin' me about some khakis
    But let some black people walk in
    I bet they show off their token blackie
    Oh now they love Kanye, let's put him all in the front of the store
    So i'm on break next to the 'No Smoking' sign with a blunt and a Marl'
    Takin' my hits, writin' my hits
    Writin' my rhymes, playin' my mind
    This fuckin' job can't help him
    So I quit, y'all welcome
    Y'all don't know my struggle
    Y'all can't match my hustle
    You can't catch my hustle
    You can't fathom my love dude
    Lock yourself in a room doin' five beats a day for three summers
    That's a different world like Cree Summers
    I deserve to do these numbers
    The kid that made that deserves that Maybach
    So many records in my basement
    I'm just waitin' on my spaceship

    Also Lupe Fiasco

    Song: Superstar(third verse)

    So chauffeur chauffeur come and take me away
    'Cause I've been standin' in this line for like five whole days
    Me and security ain't getting' along
    And when I got to the front, they told me all of the tickets were gone
    So just take me home where the mood is mellow
    And the roses are grown, M&Ms are yellow
    And the light bulbs around my mirror don't flicker
    Everybody gets a nice autograph picture
    One for you and one for your sister
    Who had to work tonight but is an avid listener
    Every songs her favorite song and mics don't feedback
    All the reviewers say "You need to go and see that"
    And everybody claps 'cause everybody is pleased
    And then they all take the stage and start performin' for me
    Like, ha ha ha ha ha
    Ha ha ha ha ha, ha

    The former drummer of Coheed and Cambria left the band because he preferred being a rapper and he's pretty rad. I just wish he'd chosen a different song to make a video for, because there were better songs on his album than this one.
