    No shots Ghost writer, but that nas verse is what i always say, nas be all over the place, he has a vivid imagination, sometimes i just want the mc to talk real and direct and straight 4wrd

    So I keep it ghetto like sunflower seeds and quarter waters
    You walk em through it, you know, talk em through it

    I hear you Iceberg….don’t think I posted that verse just because you were posting jigga….just reading through lyrics cause I’m bored and I found that verse to be interesting….where he used his songs at the begining of the lyric

    Lil Wayne is the closest thing we have to Pac…I grew up on Pac…That’s my nigga for real…I had posters, cds, I even got my belly fat tatted because of Pac….I wore red bandanas across my fo’head cuz of Pac…this is real talk..

    Pac was the most influential individual in hip hop/rap….until lil wayne came around…and he’s the most influential now..

    Lil Wayne has the youngins, old people and white america in his grasp….Pac did it with the Thug imagery..

    Wayne did it with the thug imagery too…tat’s, shirt off, sagging jeans, cursing in public, swearing in front of people..

    only pac and wayne did that….wayne is pac in the flesh…

    i’m still waiting for a rapper to come out [||] named “bin laden”

    on some real shit, like “this is my name”

    i mean that would be ignorant and it would cause a firestorm but the shit would be mad interesting to see how it played out. if he was nice as fuck on the mic he’d get some work, no doubt. rap fans love controversy and they tend to cheer for the villain anyway
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    From Chicago: Bin Laden Blowing Up. They’re at CMJ performing with lame ass Nigel Holt, Mic Terror and Mano and all them but they’re bubbling in the ‘Go. They were full page featured in the Reader a couple weeks ago.

    Yo Jersey, is the crib a single or multi fam?

    For example from the beginning to the end, he is talking about a real tru story, walking you thru it

    I’ll probably end up back in the hood like f**k it then
    rumblin’ over the oven, we was like brothers then
    though u was nothin other than the son of my mothers friend
    we had nothin then, who would have thought the love would end
    I suppose that happens to all good things
    never known it was the same song that all hoods sing
    thought it was all wood grain, all good brain
    we wouldn’t bicker like the other fools, talk good game
    never imagine all the disaster that one good brang
    could bring, should blame the game and I could
    its kill or be killed, how could I refrain
    jealousy evil and pride and this brings
    its all to a head like a coin, cha-ching
    the root of evil strikes again
    this could sting, now the team got beef between the post and the point
    this put the ring at jeopardy

    No problem, i luv some of nas verses like the one im bout to post and than he just looses me

    I’m standin’ on the roof of my building
    I’m feelin’ – the whirlwind of beef, I inhale it
    Just like an acrobat ready to hurl myself though the hoops of fire
    Sippin’ 80 proof, bulletproof under my attire
    ^^^

    thats good rhymin, but when u think of a dude just standing on the roof, arms open doing this, sounds kinda crazy

  12. cOLD Says:

    black repblicans.

    I still say that song needed 2 more verses from each. They both were turning it up as the bars flowed. Could only imagine how a second verse from either would of went.

  13. Rey Says:

    @ cOLD– Cosign. Either that, or they shoulda just rhymed they asses off (nh) and shat on the whole industry. I feel like both of them were trying to be too slick without really, really spitting. (dbl nh)

    ^ smh, thats a nigga suited up ready for war. You aint know?

  15. cOLD Says:

    those lines Iceberg, are the equivalent to when Bruce Lee would taste his own blood, and go bat shit on a nigga.

  16. Beyonder Says:

    I’m sorry, but that is just a terrible beat. I mean the sounds themselves sound soooooooo pedestrian, unpolished, and beneath Jeezy’s delivery. I can see why he primarily does Gucci’s stuff. It matches better.

    “So Icy,” was a well constructed beat using pristine sounds. This ain’t it Zay.

  17. CassavaLeaf Says:

    Jeezy!
