    That kelis is a cold bitch. Damn.

    ^
    This happens after you cheat on the bitch twice, which I’m assuming Nasgawd did.

    If the bitch really loves you, she’ll forgive you for cheating once. Just don’t be a bitch about it, talk your shit, let her cry, then say some quick thoughtful apology, and keep it moving.

    ^ dawg. She was reckless with esco’s cash. Nas himself was gonna file for divorce but couldn’t bring himself to do it, on the strength of the broad being pregnant. No mentions of cheating infidelity. Best believe Kelis wouldve aired that already. I think she was a money hungry bitch in it for the cash from the gate. Prolly got seeded up knowing the marriage was a wrap (ha) just so she could rape his pockets further.

    The moral of Gnozir’s epic losses on top of losses is never nut in a disreputable bitch’s pussy – it will be her ticket to caking off you forever.

    Better to nut in her asshole. You’ll get AIDS but at least she won’t get your paper (c) Magic.

  11. Troubleshooter1900 Says:

    Magic was the original “rape her butthole so she won’t get pregnant” ass nicca.

    Magic did that … so hopefully you won’t have to go thru that.

    Memory lane>>>>>>>

    I rap for listeners, blunt heads, fly ladies and prisoners
    Hennessey holders and old school niggas, then I be dissin a unofficial that smoke woolie thai(shots at J7)
    I dropped out of Kooley High, gassed up by a cokehead cutie pie
    Jungle survivor, fuck who’s the liver
    My man put the battery in my back, a differencem from Energizer
    Sentence begins indented with formality
    My duration’s infinite, moneywise or physiology
    Poetry, that’s a part of me, retardedly bop
    I drop the ancient manifested hip-hop, straight off the block
    I reminisce on park jams, my man was shot for his sheep coat
    Chocolate blunts make me see him drop in my weed smoke
    It’s real, grew up in trife life, did times or white lines
    The hype vice, murderous nighttimes, and knife fights invite crimes
    Chill on the block with Cognac, hold strap
    with my peeps that’s into drug money, market into rap
    No sign of the beast in the blue Chrysler, I guess that means peace
    For niggas no sheisty vice to just snipe you
    Start off the dice-rolling mats for craps to cee-lo
    With sidebets, I roll a deuce, nothing below (peace God!)
    Peace God — now the shit is explained

  40. Cypher Says:

    Shawn Knowles < Shawn Carter

    Jay aint been right since Crazy in Love…

  41. cOLD Says:

    Illmatic really is the greatest rap album of all times. That shit turned the proverbial corner in hip hop. Like the homie said, the album bridged an oldskool rawness and a technical craft of the newskool.

  42. jderrida Says:

    lol @ Nas stans. There everywhere.

    CEO of TMZ told Nas what hospital his child is being born in.

    Dude probably listening to It Was Written while he was typing the e-mail.

    Curre$y Fans >>> Nas Stans >>> Hip-Hop Heads

  43. Danny Ocean Says:

    the pursuit for pussy really is what makes the world turn though.

    if you ain’t never been caught up over some pussy…or made irrational decisions outside your normal code of ethics over some pussy…you ain’t been getting nowhere near enough.

    real niggas can’t respect that.

    Nas >

    sup Nah

  44. cOLD Says:

    (movie trailer voice)

    The year was 1994, torrential rains battered the East Coast. And in its wake rose from speakers across the tri state, IlLMATIC.

    War torn ghetto youths paused all activities, as if the messiah, appearing in the sky it self – called for their attention

    Fact!

    I can’t be the only dude that be ready to smack a nigga for these absurd comments.

  48. London Bloke Says:

    Used to be a transaction where you now own a woman. Like a purchase.

    Puss, labour and a facilitator to an heir

    What you get now? Regulated puss, equal chores, your bread spent and hassle

    We fell off.

  49. London Bloke Says:

    Monogomy wasnt a condition of marriage when it was established. Yeah you gone cheat, but you OWN her, what she gonna do? Women couldn’t work so it was either suffer a little side play or suffer hunger

  50. Bricktop Says:

    We fell off.

    PS: co-sign NY State Of Mind 2. Top 5 Nas song, IMO.

  52. London Bloke Says:

    Our forefathers took advantage of women with marriage. And now? We’re paying the repercussions. Got an ideal when men fight the very urges that make them men. Slip up and she gonna Kelis you

    We won the battle, they won the war.

    Checkmate

  53. Eastern_Digital Says:

    And on the othe side of the planet (Asia) people are killing off their female infants cuz they’re a liability and essentially worthless.

    Raising a girl is like watering your neighbor’s garden (c) some Chinese women

  54. London Bloke Says:

    Or say fuck marriage, be in the club at 35 hollering 18year olds with no sexual health regard, catch the ghost and say you got lupus to the family why you looking flabby and sick

    Yeah cause thats really a win.

    Shit really is checkmate in 1. You think you still got control of your piece (double entendre [n]) but you already lost regardless

    This only applies to the testosterone primal niggas (II)

  58. cOLD Says:

    Damn London

    Keep going. None

  59. London Bloke Says:

    This rant was inspired by that ass i saw at lunch. You know when you get that look like she want you to come speak to her; to meet and ravish later, and even as a MAN you gotta disregarding everything that seems right & leave it

    SMFH

  60. cOLD Says:

  61. London Bloke Says:

    Do they still do them small VH1 concerts? Behind the lyrics? Is this what the vid above is? Where they rap then talk then rap? Intimate concert style

    I liked the 808 Kanye did and a Nas one would be amazing too.

    Its gets worse.

    Read some statitical report that by 2050 in China there will be 25 million males between the ages of 18-24, compared to 6 million females of the same age.

    Four niggas to one bitch average. Fuck.

  66. cOLD Says:

    It’s best to have a bunker to retreat to if you fighting a war

  67. jderrida Says:

    Wait, went back and re-read the statistics.

    By 2050 there will be 40 million more males to females.

    They have all the money but fuck being Chinese.

  68. London Bloke Says:

    40 million more males to females.

  69. JDS of the Cobra Kai Dojo Says:

    Have any of you been horrified by the places your mind takes you while in slumber?

    I had the craziest dream last night. And a year ago, around this same time in fact, I had a similarly horrific dream.

  70. London Bloke Says:

    Worst part: I feel like females have no clue to this. Very few have a true understanding.

  71. jderrida Says:

  73. JDS of the Cobra Kai Dojo Says:

    You’re speaking truth LB but kinda off.

    We’ve always been the pawns. I suggest you read a chapter out of Howard Bloom’s The Lucifer Principle. There’s a chapter titled The Expendability of Males.

    Men were designed for short, nasty, brutal lives. Women are designed for long, miserable ones. – Dr. Estelle Ramey

  74. London Bloke Says:

    1 female for every 6 male

    ^

    Going to be a lot of profit in prostitution then. Either that or a LOT of virgins (no nah comment section)

    But having a female got to be somewhat profitable…you could practically “sell” your daughters marriage. I mean, 6 people competiting, you should get a good price. Basic economics of low supply, high price

    I think its more a cultural rather than profit thing thought right?

    Yeah. You want your family name to continue so girls are aborted by families.
