This song will always get me hype, then sad, then angry. (Just like Sky Is The Limit)
hyped because: … these lyrics. the delivery. the dedication. the word play. ugh! Just Wayne man. Had to call him LilWeezyana on this one to pay homage.
sad because: … am I ever going to hear Dwayne Carter pre-No Ceilings ever again?!
angry because : … probation got my lil’ whoadee talkin’ blah blah and racking up skateboarding injuries. Pass my man a couple Ls and a cup of Dirty Jones; cut his dreads back to mid-shoulder length, and let the martian cook.
Until then, I’ll listen to old Wayne and appreciate it.
I was singing this song in my head since yesterday morning. Earthquake is always that playa tune for me. Definitely in the top favorite songs along with it’s original (R.I.P. Al Green). This was Tha Carter 2003-04 Wayne when he was nesting in the game for real. Seeing the video took me back to one of my favorite times in hip-hop. Errup Fresh was in the video being that guy! (I love Mannie Fresh, gawd) Shout’s to Baby, young Reginae and Wayne little dreads. (His hair helps tell the story of his whole career though) Jazze Pha made this song the groove absolutely. (I’m way mo’ fly than you/ I’ll take yo dime from you cus she wonna spend all night with mee-eeeee-eee) and Wayne’s verses were rockin’ (Bars of the day.) This song is the anthem until later on tonight. But then again, it’s always the jam.
I appreciate YouTube for things like this.
Sigh… I miss Wayne…
Here we go again, huh? So It clearly took me a while to actually sit and take in wtf is going on with whatever is going on. First the speculation was Young Money, but as I listened intently myself, Drake, Wayne, and Young Chop were sub-mentioned.
I love Drake, everyone knows this,but the way Pusha T lyrically ripped into him and the other two was pretty intense. I don’t think he was really getting at them, but he definitely let them know about their individual lives.
“Contract all fucked/Explain up I guess that means you all fucked up/You signed to one niggas that signed to another niggas that’s signed to three niggas / Now that’s bad luck.” -Welp.
“F*ck you playin’ games fou? Don’t be scared, get everything you came fou/They got you talkin’ that big shit, little do you know, we don’t miss shit/ Them n*ggas usin’ you as a pawn, you see they never loaded they guns. Now you out here all by yo’self, ask Steve Jobs wealth don’t buy health, yeeeahh.” – Yeah…. this tied it all up pretty much.
“Throwin’ that flag up, runnin ‘roun’, you hot shit. Takin half of everything you get.” Wayne. Exposed.
Pusha even had it for Young Chop (Original producer for Chief Keef’s “I Dont Like” record who had much to say about Ye altering the beat.)
“You can keep your beats, n*gga, we much rather share your b*tch n*gga. B*tch n*gga.” -Respect it.
The-Dream’s “Them n*ggas ain’t down fuh yuh” hook just makes you have so much pity for these 3 dudes.
I can get into so much with this topic, but you may not want to read mad much so I will keep it as simple as I can.
It does annoy me that Drake be riding YM crazy, mainly because every time someone comes at YM he feels he has to be that front soldier. Yes I get that that is the label you are signed to, but YM is shitty and I’m sure the money/business is shady looking at the membership list growing every other month. Keep your loyalty to OVO(XO) and don’t let anyone put ANY batteries in your back including the -he said she said- and “G.O.O.D aint good enough/ya hood ain’t hood enough” because this record felt really legit. (Feeling that this track was a real ass diss track, then again, it’s Pusha T.)
And the verse itself, Exodus 23:1, “Do not spread false reports. Do not help a wicked man by being a malicious witness” I interpret it as, do not spread false information just to help someone in the wrong make a point. Seems to all fall in line to me.
And it’s clear people are in their feelings because Wayne was Lawry’s going on twitter saying, “fuk pusha t and anybody that love em.” To me, Wayne told us Pusha was talkin’ the gospel. But what if there are Pusha T and Wayne fans… so you really walked through and said “f*ck airybody?” Whatever dawgs. Wayne said he was a made man and how he should dust something, but Jay explained, “made men ain’t suppose to make statements.” Hmm.. I’ll go with the guy who’s more Frank Lucas than Ludacris.
Ennywehdoe, shouts to Manny Fresh on the production of Cruel Summer (oh yah! ) and in the words of that pretty muhfudger, “rap game f*ck up boheeyy. F*ck you think I rap fo’?
I’ve been wanting to talk about so much with the music game and such, but I’m so passionate for it that I know I will get off topic and talk about seven things at once yadablah therefore I’m going to try my best to tackle subjects one at a time and not break it all down in one post. Cool?
I say that to discuss this: timing. Timing is just that luck up moment in life period. Whether it’s accidentally running into someone, being in the right place at the right time, or everything going on around is lining up correct and you are the perfect fit. Timing is vital when it comes to the rap game (Hip-hop as well for those who understand the difference). The worst thing is when a “hot” artist is released when majority of listeners are not checking for your mans… at all. The sound is constantly changing and the lyrical content has gotten simple as Hooked on Phonics. In most cases, when an artist starts out, they have their own swag; flow, delivery, and the content relevance is their own (even if a mesh of others) so they may not change completely to fit what is needed at the time; in other words they are shelved until further notice, if given one.
For instance; Tity 2 Necklace is one of those artists who happened to turnup at the right time. If you listen to his music when he was Tity Boi, half of Player’s Circle, 2 Chainz sounds pretty much… the same. Of course, Wayne was really running the southern rap 2006-2007, so no one really checking for anyone up and coming (Though Supply and Demand did reach #1 on Billboards top rap albums). Now that the south is really taking over (stay tuned for this topic) and hip-hop has shifted once again in the last two years, Tity Boi is that guy. Hopping on tracks like Superfreak and Mercy on top of having a mixtape that was TURNUP in and out, you gotta hand it to ATL’s dread. He remained truuuuuue to his music and now he’s making baby Mercedes, hitting his lanky two step, and gaining another audience;(another post) basically, getting this money.
I use 2 Chainz because so many people have much to say about Mr. Yaaah, but there are a few artists on the same wave. Do you know how many artists have had many projects and are just getting heard? Even vis versa, you cant always come back when it WAS your time… it’s quiet for all of that. Kim… it’s dead. Pack it up, Nicki came and did the damn thing; endorsements, pop, Euro, gaining the youth. Nicki has passed Kim in the long run and is still defining her brand. Basically, feel out what’s going on around you and see how you can make it work for you. You may have to be a little patient, but hey, when it’s your time… it’s your time. Don’t let a tick-tock go by.
Being that I fake stalk ChampagnePapi‘s Instagram, I seen pictures from this video. At first I was like, “Is he really actin’ out in the synagogue?” He was indeed, but it wasn’t a real service. (whew) Though some people felt this was blasphemy, this was Drizzy‘s best video to date (shouts to Lil X!). A visual of how his second Bar Mizvah would be, the video opened with an exclusive clip Ms. Sandy had sitting in the vault, of young Aubrey at a Bar Mitvah hittin’ the cutest two step and snap I’ve ever seen. Team OVO was in full attendance as well as Khaled, Baby, and of course panda Wayne. Let us not forget the sexy and Drake’s bestie, Trey Songz, guzzling that Patron like a true daredevil. Ha! I could never. Ennywehdoe, Drake having the top hip-hop video right now? Hell Yeah F*cking Right.

This is definitely a banger and the 305 Dade county feel will rock in the strip clubs. I’m sure some of the best clappuhs are practicin’ to this record right now. You tell me.
