    ^^You should see a shrink about that. I’m sure there’s a diagnosis for it.

  8. Plug Says:

    Someone tell plug he’s similar to a politician switching his campaign to the one with least resistance. So now you can’t acknowledge what someone on a “hip hop blog” says until the verify something that’s totally unverifiable. Didn’t you just call this the place of the revolution.
    ————-
    All I’m sayin is a lot of cats just talk about stuff they gonna do. I actually have been to NAACP meetings, town meetings, protested department stores for there lack of black employees, ect. I’m not just talkin it is all I’m sayin. no disrespect. These sean bell and racist type convos are close to home to me. I live in the burbs so I know how the poe poe act toward minorities. I lived in the hood all my life so I know how they treat niggas there to. I’m no where close to a Al sharpten or MLK, but I at least have attemted to do something…

    Why is it that “hip hop fans” are always hating on Tech?
    Holmes has a flow and can make good songs..wats the gripe??

    >>I’m going to take a wild guess here and type by you putting hip hop fans in quotation marks that you don’t consider yourself such. No? Are you saying that without this guys rants over beats these hip hop fans would not know how “real” the world is? So I suppose these hip hop fans in your estimation are cut off from the world and happen to be blind and deaf. That is fucked up.

    Finally some good fuck music.

  18. KinGRex Says:

    Actually no I’m concider myself to be very much a hip hop fan. the quotations were obviously put there to make a bit of a crack at some of the people I see on this site tearing good hip hop apart and then making a mess in their panties every time a new 50 track drops. Not saying your one of these people but cmon.
    And yes I think alot of the hip hop fans are cut off from whats going on because they are force feed feces on a daily basis from the like of MTV, BET, TV in gereral, newspapers..

    I suppose instead of getting into all that tho I should just be giving a BIG UP to Eskay for keeping music like this heard by more people than it ever would w/o him…

    I just left the post about nas n kweli speaking on Sean Bell, R.I.P.
    But don’t yall think its funny that every time we get oppression n racism placed in our face we immediately become crabs in a bucket. Look at the imus situation they blamed that on Rap music and wanted to “clean it up”, now I see people turning their attention toward us in the Sean Bell case ion care if the boy had 2 grams of coke in him and a bottle of hennessy the boy was not a threat and he got shot 50 times. We always point fingers at each other instead of the instituion that keeps us oppressed. Look at projects-a big gated community/some have security at the gate/one way in one out/gated windows n doors/concrete brick walls/that’s fucking jail not a gated community that’s y niggas at ease in jail because most were birthed in one. We were enslaved 2 be the burden bearers and then they call us lazy. I’m rambling a lil I feel but u can get the jist

    Well in these times, well at least to me
    There’s a lot of rappers out there tryin to sound like Jay-Z
    I’ll help you out, here’s what you do
    You gonna need a wide lens cause that’s a VERR’ big shoe
    And you got a couple of +Beans+ and you don’t have a +Clue+?
    You situation is +Bleek+, I’ma keep it +Rell+ cause
    Fuckin with me, you gotta drop +Amil+
    Cause if you gonna cop somethin you gotta cop f’real
    Don’t only talk it, walk like it – from the Bricks to the booth
    I can predict the future like Cleo the psychic
    You can’t date skee-os and wife it (uh-uh)
    And you can’t sell me bullshit, we know the prices
    So what your life is? We gon’ roll
    ’til the wheels fall off, y’all muh’fuckers check the tires
    Off we go, let the trumpets blow
    And hold on, because the driver of that Bentley is a pro
    The ruler’s back

    And dont mind me im lit up

  70. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Tote more Guns then Roses, foes is,
    visibly shook of the invisible bully, let’s go
    Flowers need water to grow, it gotta rain
    And in order to experience joy you need pain
    Every time a baby is born, somebody’s slain
    You know the saying, somebody’s lose is another’s gain
    The sun comes out when the water goes down the drain
    A rainbow then the clouds come out we do it again
    Everything evens up, you just wait
    Even a garbage can gets a steak
    You ain’t even a garbage can you have faith
    But when it turns your way before it turns away
    Gotta turn that into something you gotta learn from Jay
    You will get return in your investment if attention you pay let’s go

    Ugh!
    Tech used to rap about how retarded it is that rappers “make tracks” with dead rappers. Now he is doing the same shit. And that by recycling his own song. A classic one at that. He tossed away a great beat, replaced it with some eminem-ish beat, tossed pac’s babble on it and voila…

    [2Pac/Makaveli Speaking]

    Yo ‘Law!
    Is it cool if a nigga just get fucked up for this one?

    (Sample from “Survival of the Fittest” by Mobb Deep)
    I’m falling and I can’t turn back
    I’m falling and I can’t turn – I can’t turn back
    I’m falling and I can’t turn back

    [Verse 1 – Immortal Technique]

    I once knew a nigga whose real name was William
    his primary concern, was making a million
    being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
    he used to fuck moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams
    a corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
    nigga never had a father and his mom was a feen
    she put the pipe down, but forever yeah she was sober
    her sons heart simultaneously grew colder
    he started hanging out selling bags in the projects
    checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects
    he was fascinated by material objects
    but he understood money never bought respect
    he build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal
    but got locked once it didn’t hesitate to squeal
    so criminals he chilled with didn’t think he was real
    you see me and niggaz like this have never been equal
    I dont project my insurecurity’s at other people
    he feeded for props like addicts with pipes and needles
    so he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
    a fever minded young man with infinite potetial
    the product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental
    coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed
    dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed
    but he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 2 – Immortal Technique]

    So Billy started robbing niggaz, anything he could do
    he’d get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew
    starting fights over little shit, up on the block
    stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock
    working overtime for making money for the crack spot
    hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine
    for filling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
    tired of the block niggaz treating him the same
    he wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs
    but when he tried to step to ’em, niggaz showed him no love
    they told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs
    any bitch nigga with a gun, can bust slugs
    any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood
    even Puffy smoked the motherfucker up in a club
    but only a real thug can stab someone till they die
    standing in front of them, starring straight into their eyes
    Billy realized that these men were well guarded
    and they wanted to test him, before business started
    suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold hearted
    so now he had a choice between going back to his life
    or making money with made men, up in the cife
    his dreams about cars and ice, made him agree
    a hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be
    and so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 3 – Immortal Technique]

    They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
    smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment
    untill they saw a woman on the street walking alone
    three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home
    and so they quietly got out the car and followed her
    walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her
    they wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
    this is it kid now you got your chance to be raw
    so Billy oaked her up and grapped the chick by the hair
    and dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there
    she struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
    they got to the roof and then held her down on the ground
    screaming shut the fuck up and stop moving around
    the shirt covered her face, but she screamed the clouts
    so Billy stomped on the bitch, until he broken her jaw
    the dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing
    they kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
    blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently
    and then they all proceeded to rape her violently
    Billy was meant to go first, but each of them took a turn
    ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
    a broken jaw mumbled for god but they weren’t concerned
    when they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and broos
    one of them niggaz pulled out a brand new twenty-two
    they told him that she was a witness of what she’d gone through
    and if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew
    he thought about it for a minute, she was practicly dead
    and so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 4 – Immortal Technique]

    Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
    he thought about the cold pain with the platinum and ice
    and he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
    cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover
    but what he saw made him start the cringine studder
    cuz he was starring into the eyes of his own mother
    she looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her
    she cried more painfully, than when they were raping her
    his whole world stopped, he couldn’t even contiplate
    his corruption had succesfully changed his fate
    and he remembered how his mom used to come home late
    working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth
    he turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
    and crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
    but only the devil responded, cause god wasn’t there
    and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
    and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
    they say death take you to a better place but I doubt it
    after that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
    and listen cause the story that I’m telling is true
    cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom to
    and now the devil follows me everywhere that I go
    infact I’m sure he’s standing among one of you at my shows
    and every street cypher listening to little thugs flowe
    he could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn’t know
    the devil grows inside the hearts of the selvish and wicked
    white, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted
    you have a self destructive destiny when your inflicted
    and you’ll be one of gods children and fell from the top
    there’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot
    so when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
    because the dance with the devil might last you forever

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    You can be touched

    [2Pac/Makaveli speaking]

    Yo ‘Law!
    Is it cool if a nigga just get fucked up for this one?

    (Sample from “Survival of the Fittest” by Mobb Deep)
    I’m falling and I can’t turn back
    I’m falling and I can’t turn – I can’t turn back
    I’m falling and I can’t turn back

    [Verse 1 – Immortal Technique]

    I once knew a nigga whose real name was William
    his primary concern, was making a million
    being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
    he used to fuck moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams
    a corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
    nigga never had a father and his mom was a feen
    she put the pipe down, but forever yeah she was sober
    her sons heart simultaneously grew colder
    he started hanging out selling bags in the projects
    checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects
    he was fascinated by material objects
    but he understood money never bought respect
    he build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal
    but got locked once it didn’t hesitate to squeal
    so criminals he chilled with didn’t think he was real
    you see me and niggaz like this have never been equal
    I dont project my insurecurity’s at other people
    he feeded for props like addicts with pipes and needles
    so he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
    a fever minded young man with infinite potetial
    the product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental
    coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed
    dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed
    but he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 2 – Immortal Technique]

    So Billy started robbing niggaz, anything he could do
    he’d get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew
    starting fights over little shit, up on the block
    stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock
    working overtime for making money for the crack spot
    hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine
    for filling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
    tired of the block niggaz treating him the same
    he wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs
    but when he tried to step to ’em, niggaz showed him no love
    they told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs
    any bitch nigga with a gun, can bust slugs
    any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood
    even Puffy smoked the motherfucker up in a club
    but only a real thug can stab someone till they die
    standing in front of them, starring straight into their eyes
    Billy realized that these men were well guarded
    and they wanted to test him, before business started
    suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold hearted
    so now he had a choice between going back to his life
    or making money with made men, up in the cife
    his dreams about cars and ice, made him agree
    a hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be
    and so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 3 – Immortal Technique]

    They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
    smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment
    untill they saw a woman on the street walking alone
    three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home
    and so they quietly got out the car and followed her
    walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her
    they wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
    this is it kid now you got your chance to be raw
    so Billy oaked her up and grapped the chick by the hair
    and dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there
    she struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
    they got to the roof and then held her down on the ground
    screaming shut the fuck up and stop moving around
    the shirt covered her face, but she screamed the clouts
    so Billy stomped on the bitch, until he broken her jaw
    the dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing
    they kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
    blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently
    and then they all proceeded to rape her violently
    Billy was meant to go first, but each of them took a turn
    ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
    a broken jaw mumbled for god but they weren’t concerned
    when they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and broos
    one of them niggaz pulled out a brand new twenty-two
    they told him that she was a witness of what she’d gone through
    and if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew
    he thought about it for a minute, she was practicly dead
    and so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]

    Young niggaz in the wild life
    Criminal mind of a juvenile still live a child life
    Thinking he can make his pay
    Too in a rush, niggaz better slow down
    Cause you can be touched

    [Verse 4 – Immortal Technique]

    Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
    he thought about the cold pain with the platinum and ice
    and he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
    cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover
    but what he saw made him start the cringine studder
    cuz he was starring into the eyes of his own mother
    she looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her
    she cried more painfully, than when they were raping her
    his whole world stopped, he couldn’t even contiplate
    his corruption had succesfully changed his fate
    and he remembered how his mom used to come home late
    working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth
    he turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
    and crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
    but only the devil responded, cause god wasn’t there
    and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
    and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
    they say death take you to a better place but I doubt it
    after that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
    and listen cause the story that I’m telling is true
    cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom to
    and now the devil follows me everywhere that I go
    infact I’m sure he’s standing among one of you at my shows
    and every street cypher listening to little thugs flowe
    he could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn’t know
    the devil grows inside the hearts of the selvish and wicked
    white, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted
    you have a self destructive destiny when your inflicted
    and you’ll be one of gods children and fell from the top
    there’s no diversity because we’re burning in the melting pot
    so when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
    because the dance with the devil might last you forever

    [Chorus – 2Pac/Makaveli]
