Beat was ok – not great. Should have used JUSTICE League but their price must have went too high.
Dre spat a verse that Jay didn’t even try to write – just phoned it in. Probably had Cole write it. Shit, probably had Mickey Factz write it on a ‘independent contractor’ basis. For all I know, Bleek wrote it.
Rawse of course brung some heat but not enuf to make it a hit.
Dre was just lazy. Only hot line was shopping at TJ Maxx in ’83. Other than that just real lazy…nothing like his old shit. And when the beat went silent I thought he was gonna bring that carnage but the laziness continued.
Who remembers the last time Jay killt a posse cut when the beat went silent. ICEBERG SWEATS WITH I.B. ON THE ELASTIC!
Now Jay just phoning ‘em in. Real lazy shit. Kinda disrespectful actually.
I am one who is one with all things, thus the unorthodox I am
The paradox I am, the equinox extending my hand
Into dimensions to unlock new doorways
And so the light has revealed to me that there must be more ways
And so I play with rhythms, for something more than a mere game
Enabling me to advance in wisdom
Words will exist like vampires
No need for sunlight, from concentrations camps I escape
With my sanity — in 2010 every man will be
Subject to global warming, formless oval
Millions of locusts swarming
Seek and you shall find the deliverer of a rhyme
The intelligent one, utilizing the mind third vision
Surrounded by a three-sided figure, containing the brain
The triggering mechanism from which I strike
Sight beyond sight, sound beyond sound
Which comes from below the magma, the granite, the ground
The surface will seperate, dispersing harmful ashes
Your optics will not be able to detect
The deadly hypnotical gases
Damn it’s hard to breathe!!! but if I got one breath left;
I’ll suck wind from the valley of death, here I come
From the slums of earth to center
I reveal myself as a beast within a, unbreakable shell
Walkin through the doorways of heaven — or is this hell?
