  28. nation Says:

    I just finished reading my kid his favorite bedtime story:

    Ask Nas, he don’t want it with Hov’, nooooo!
    I know you missin all the – FAAAAAAAME!
    But along with celebrity comes bout seventy shots to your frame
    Nigga; you a – LAAAAAAAME!
    Youse the fag model for Karl Kani/Esco ads
    Went from, Nasty Nas to Esco’s trash
    Had a spark when you started but now you’re just garbage
    Fell from top ten to not mentioned at all
    to your bodyguard’s “Oochie Wally” verse better than yours
    Matter fact you had the worst flow on the whole fuckin song
    but I know – the sun don’t shine, then son don’t shine
    That’s why your – LAAAAAAAME! – career come to a end
    There’s only so long fake thugs can pretend
    Nigga; you ain’t live it you witnessed it from your folks pad
    You scribbled in your notepad and created your life
    I showed you your first tec on tour with Large Professor
    (Me, that’s who!) Then I heard your album bout your tec on the dresser
    So yeah I sampled your voice, you was usin it wrong
    You made it a hot line, I made it a hot song
    And you ain’t get a coin nigga you was gettin fucked and
    I know who I paid God, Serchlite Publishing
    Use your – BRAAAAAAAIN! You said you been in this ten
    I’ve been in it five – smarten up Nas
    Four albums in ten years nigga? I can divide
    That’s one every let’s say two, two of them shits was due
    One was – NAHHH, the other was “Illmatic”
    That’s a one hot album every ten year average
    And that’s so – LAAAAAAAME! Nigga switch up your flow
    Your shit is garbage, but you try and kick knowledge?
    (Get the fuck outta here) You niggaz gon’ learn to respect the king
    Don’t be the next contestant on that Summer Jam screen
    Because you know who (who) did you know what (what)
    with you know who (yeah) but just keep that between me and you for now

    *dozes off to Momma Love Me*

  29. vo0doodude Says:

    BCC > WU or WU > BCC?

  30. FOEKIST Says:

    Good question… But like Hov said about Wayne, BCC don’t have enough classics. I think in the case of the Wu vs. BCC, the Wu wins easily when you include their individual projects. It’s closer if you talkin about posse cuts vs posse cuts… even in THAT category, Wu gets the nod… by a hair.

    ==FROM SOHH==

    Sources tell me that Lupe Fiasco has caused Atlantic Records publicists such heartache over his inability to just shut the hell up, that Atlantic has apparently placed the rapper under a strict gag order forbidding him from discussing “Fiascogate.” Some people are saying that his career is basically over. I’ve even heard the word “ethered” (as in his career).

    ^But wouldn’t be better to just allow yourself to anticipate what could possibly be great material instead tryin’ to figure out the reason behind the title? The title is supposed to intrigue, not mortify. Of all people, Cold, I’d expect you to give him more credit.

    ^^yeah he had some weak lines, but he got his point across i.e. he was saying something with a flow that is unmatched in hiphop right now.
