Nov 22 ’02 The Bottom Line I have a feeling that in 2003, hip hop will EXPLODE!
Lately, There has been a lot of bullsh*t going on in rap music, and the battlelines have been drawn for 2003. God knows what is going to happen, but something serious is going to take place. Yesterday i heard Eminem’s new semi-underground counter-diss track called “Tha Realest Label”. Its time now. The time has come. Its time for “REAL HIP HOP”, as KRS would say, to take down FAKE Hip Hop. The soldiers are ready.
Now im here with this article to tell you guys exactly what is happening in rap when it comes to beef. So i have laid out all of the information you need to know about what is to come. Im also here to let out some anger.
Jay-Z vs. Nas – Battle for the King of New York
Of course, everybody knows all about this one. Its still on, no matter what. If you dont believe me, listen to Blueprint 2. It is LOADED with subliminal messages and indirect disses towards Nas. In fact, there are a LOT of lyrics found on the album that really make me think of Nas. Jay-Z even admitted stated that he lost to Nas, but apparently he doesnt mean it. So Jay-Z challenges Nas to a pay-per-view freestyle battle. Nas refused, saying that if he wants more beef, he will put out an album. So Jay-Z responds. True fans of hip hop and of these two artists can understand EXACTLY what Jigga is saying, most notably on “Watcher 2” and “Blueprint 2”. Here is a sample from Watcher 2:
If you was having sex everyday in your last relationship, any type of dropoff in sex in your current relationship is going to make you think about your ex. It’s human nature. People compare. Your girl/man is not going to come out and say all the freaky sh*t they were doing with their ex but believe me, if you are not doing those same freaky things, they are thinking about their ex. For example if their ex used to f*ck them 7 times a day and you only f*cking once a day, they are thinking about their ex. When you see them sitting there real quiet not saying anything, they are thinking about their ex. Of course they would never tell you that. When you ask “what you thinking about baby” they will probably say “oh, nothing just thinking about having to go to work tomorrow.” But in reality, she is thinking about how her stomach used to feel after f*cking all day with her ex. He is thinking about how he used to f*ck his ex so much that when he would bust a nutt, no nutt would even come out his d*ck. That n*gga thinking about how his ex used to have him “all nutted out.” It’s good to find out how freaky your bf/gf was with their ex, that way you know how hard you gotta go to out do them.
I am the wrong nigga to cross and the first nigga to jam
But the AK-cuatro siete over microphone in hand
Goddamn. Generation uno, Dungeon Fam
The lab is filled with potions of emotions out the ass
I laugh when you think that you have seen the last
But it’s only the beginning my nigga don’t be so fast
Pass gas, slow it down to a screeching halt
Impeach the President cuz he don’t think before he talk
Iraq, got that; now he gunning for Iran
North Korea got that shit that make LA look like Japan
Our land, nah man, more like the +Caribbean+
+Billy Ocean+ body’s potent take up all your strip and land this
In 2007, frustrated by the slow pace of rebuilding in the Lower Ninth, Brad Pitt set up a foundation called Make It Right; the foundation then commissioned 13 architecture firms to design affordable, green houses. The organization plans to build 150 homes, all for returning Lower Ninth residents. So far, just 15 of them are occupied, but those 15 make a big impression. Continue reading
