    I think I kind of sort of might understand Lil B. Dude is stupid but his dumbassness is getting attention. SMH at the gay rhymes though.

    “Hoes on my dick cuz I look like grandma damn based god figurine like santa.”
    “Im so beautiful I look like moses I look like Fabio young tan handsome bitches on my dick cuz I look like Marilyn Manson I look like Bill Gates mixed with Obama.”
    “Licorice necklace I look like Madonna riding in my car and I looks like a Rasta”
    “Hoes on my dick cuz I look like Jesus”
    “hoes on my dick cuz i payed for the butt-cheeks, girls on my nuts look i look like whole wheat, baby nuts brandon came with the gloc ”
    “Then I realize the power…of jacking off every hour…”
    “Bullets spread ova ya body fast like cancer, now you in tha sky like Pisces and Cancers”
    “woo woo woo woo”

    I had a ill painting class at the Art Institute taught by this super hippy older white ladyin her 60’s. So one day, we had a exercise where everybody brought a song to be played for the class, no talking, just paint how the music made you feel. I brought T.R.O.Y. and the teacher almost passed out. She was like “this is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard”. Maaaan she was buggin’ like “sorry class, do you mind if we listen again?” and brought it back 4 times in a row.

  7. Remixznflow Says:

    I just saw Pete Rock do a DJ set a month back…was debating if I should bring my full color “TROY” original print vinyl to the show to get signed. Decided not to because I didn’t want to be the dude holding a record all night and def. would have felt like a jackass if he didn’t even sign shit. Sure enough, Pete was mad cool and signed everybody’s shit after the set SMMFH.

    I remember recording over a cassette single and replacing it with T.R.O.Y on both sides so I could just keep the song on repeat in my walkman. Positively one of the greatest hiphop songs ever
