    I come to appreciate rap through the eyes of Tupac, but behind the catchy rhymes and smooth styling text was something more. It related to my own past and the present unseen but felt on my skin. The rules of rap, its lyrics, strongly coincide with rules of life and how life should be seen through the barrel of a gun.

    So I seen yesterday Jay-Z interview, what caught my ear was his quote
    In every Jay-Z rap admirer eye, Jay-Z is a legend and his accomplishment are unsurpassed and definite to the ground. Yet all of his rap audience sees his "rise" and nothing else, they never seem to understand his "genesis" and the "demise" that follows after the rise...

    He never did speak of what made him what he is, all he said was it is a struggle to the pedestal were he is at now. Its not like I am strongly tying this to an analogy of a gun, but consider this the similarities are in essence astonishing. With 10 bullets in a magazine the first shot is most likely a miss, the next two bullets have a bigger chance of reaching the target, the 5 bullets after that hit the bodies of the enemy, and the last two remind of the end of the cartridge. The demise comes when there are no more bullets to shoot, no more songs to rap, thats when the bullets from the other guns reach you, the reach Jay-Z...and thus his long dramatical "demise" occurs, the body falls on the concrete the whole scene caught on camera for every kid to dream of rap to see...

    So I say rap is a style of life, through barrel of a gun viewed.

    I like Eminem myself. He has some pretty rude lyrics, but I find alot of the beats catchy.

    Eminem is bit dramatical, farther away from truth of the ghetto.

    Year: 2004


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Ohh Baby, The way you shake it
    I can’t believe it, I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    The way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING
    I don’t believe it, it’s almost to good to be true
    I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    The way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING


    The way she moves, she’s like a belly-dancer
    She shakin that ass to the new Nelly jams
    I think someone’s at the door but I don’t think Imma answer
    Police saying, FREEZE... DOING DOING DOING
    What do you mean freeze? Please I’m a human being
    I have needs, I’m not done, not til I’m finished peeing
    I’m not resisting arrest, I am agreeing Mr. Officer
    I’m already on my knees, I can’t get on the ground any further
    It’s impossible for me, And do not treat me like a murderer
    I just like to pee, pee, pee, Yes, I make R&B
    I sing song, it Ring-a-Chong-a-Ching-Chong-Chong-Ching
    Syke, I joke I joke, I kid I kid. If offend, I’m sorry
    Please, Please forgive, for I am Triumph, the puppet dog
    I am a mere puppet, I can get away anything I say and you will love


    The way you shake it
    I can’t believe it, I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    The way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING
    Jessica Simpson, looks oh so tempting
    Nick, I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    Every time I see that show on MTV my pee pee goes DOING DOING DOING


    Mary Kate and Ashley used to be so handsome
    Now they getting older, they’re starting to grow bum-bums
    I go to the movies and sit down with my popcorn
    Police saying, FREEZE... DOING DOING DOING
    What do you mean freeze? JEEZ I just got my seat
    I have ticket, look I put away, my zipper’s zipped
    Please do not remove me from this movie theatre, please
    I did not even get to see Mary Kate’s shower scene
    I didn’t mean to be obscene or make a great big scene
    And don’t treat me like I’m Pee-Wee Herman
    This movie’s PG, Mr. Office, I demand to see my attorney
    I will simple plead innocent, cop a plea, and be free
    Free, yes free, right back on the streets
    What you mean my lawyers with Michael, He’s too busy?
    I am Triumph, Britney Spears has shoulder’s are like man
    And I could say that and you laugh cause there’s a puppet on my hand


    The way you shake it
    I can’t believe it, I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    The way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING
    Hilary Duff is not quite old enough so I ain’t never seen a butt like that
    Maybe next year I’ll say ass and she’ll make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING


    The way she moves she dances like a GO-GO
    In that video she sings get out your puzzle
    I need a new boyfriend, Hi my name is Jo-Jo
    Police saying, FREEZE... DOING DOING DOING
    What do you mean freeze? My computers will be seized
    And my keys to my ranch. I just bake cookies
    Mr. Office, lookie, take a woof of this
    Here, I make Jesus juice, take a sip of this
    Nobody is safe from me, no not even me
    I don’t even know if I could say the word peepee
    Pee on the radio but I think I did
    Janet is that a breast? I think I just saw a tit
    Syke, I joke I joke, I kid I kid. I don’t think my joke is working
    I must flea quick, get to the chopper, everybody get out
    I am not Triumph, I am Aronld, get down


    The way you shake it
    I can’t believe it, I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    The way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING
    So Gwen Stafani will you peepee on me, Please
    I ain’t never seen an ass like that
    Cause the way you move it, you make my peepee go DOING DOING DOING

    So you're saying rappers can't aim worth a shit.

    I agree.

    Rank amateurs all.


    What's to understand ?

    His "demise" will be the same as most other musicians...

    He becomes a "has been."


    I think the important question to ask here is how did this ugly son of a bitch get Beyonce ?

    Excuse the intermission, but I find it hugely comical that Draqon here is making judgments on rappers using the "Truth of the Ghetto" as his yardstick.
    The truth of the Ghetto? I'd imagine draqon boy here knows as much about that as he does about looking down the barrel of a gun - from either end.
    *Chuckle*

    As an aside, is it a coincidence that the only recently successful white rapper has to contend with more questioning about his background and experience of the harsher side of American life than any black has ever had to?
    More than that, of course, those who make assumptions are usually those who style themselves as being non-racist. The same ones who feel a certain satisfaction at seeing Eminem's "exposure" because it vindicates to a large extent their belief in their beloved Oppressed Black Man and the "truth and soul" in his music.

    Carry on.

    So wrong...

    It's a "niche" form or style at best.

    I mean - a good part of the "music" portion is actually other pieces of music, and the vocal presentation usually involves little more than a monotoned rant - especially the "thuggy-wuggy" stuff.

    Plus, look at your subject matter -

    I am so fantastic.

    I got lotsa -
    whorish women
    money
    booze
    dope

    I kill whomever doesn't happen to agree with me.

    It gets old quick.

    So The Marquis...you feel that I am black? is that why you tied Eminem to racism?

    No, Draq, t'was merely an observation which had nothing to do with the thread topic.

    I will say that if I was the President of the Hallmark corporation, I'd give you a job writing the cards for valentines day. This, of course, has nothing whatsoever to do with what I might think of you personally. Or with the topic.

    So why are you talking about it if it has "nothing to do with the topic"? :bugeye:
    If I was black would I find the "Hallmark" reference offensive? I sure would.

    There is a point at which a man suddenly wakes up and asks himself why something he thought was entertaining 5 minutes ago no longer is.
    This is that point.
