Nas Verbal Intercourse

In my opinion, one of the hottest flows ever from God Son. Nas has always displayed incredible depth, wide vocabulary and one of the games smoothest most flawless flows. Truthfully speaking, my man has been a little confused in the past, considering he was a italian mob figure, a prophet, a revolutionary, and a gangsta all at the same time. Often times you didn't know which Nas you'd get from one joint to the next. Honestly, I love Jay Z for dissing Nas openly on The Takeover, because I couldn't sit through another Oochie Wally. Stillmatic renewed my faith in an artist that I was totally done fucking with.

Hear It!

Through the lights cameras and action, glamour glitters and gold
I unfold the scroll, plant seeds to stampede the globe
When I'm deceased, by then the beast arise like yeast
to conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets
Live on the run, police paying me to give in my gun
Trick my Wisdom, with the system that imprisoned my son
Smoke a gold leaf I hold heat, nonchalantly
I'm grungy, but things I do is real it never haunts me
while, funny style niggaz roll in the pile
Rooster heads profile on a bus to Riker's Isle
Holdin weed inside they pussy with they minds on the pretty things in life,
props is a true thug's wife
It's like a cycle, niggaz come home, some'll go in
Do a bullet, come back, do the same shit again
From the womb to the tomb, presume the unpredictable
Guns salute life, rapidly, that's the ritual


If you aint got the Untitled album, ya fuckin up!

Starang Wondah Hurricane Starang

Why is it that everytime I say Boot Camp Click, cats start talking to me about Mystikal and Black Menace? The Duck Down family seems to me to be some of the most heavily skilled, yet overlooked MC's in the game. From Buckshot on down to the Reps ya'll, these cat's have been banging out hits for over a decade. Starang Wondah (no relation to Stevie) is displayed here in Hurricane Starang from OGC's Da Storm album. Just check him.

I be Grand like Puba but I most move wit Dru Ha
puts the B in hoo-ya, Strang cummin to do ya
scream halleluyah, but it still wont help ya
run from OGC and get caught by Heltah Skeltah
jet to the other side, run for cover hide
niggas still wouldnt be safe even if I let em slide
This aint baseball, I waste yall, ask no question
attack from the back from the Black Smif N Wessun
I be rubbishin, any crew that claims they be bubbilin
get that ass capped (ascap)
like them niggas when they be handlin my publishin
I be lovin when fake rappers
question my status when my crew be the phattest
add this, you can ask my man the Big Kahuna
kablow make you say yaow (seau) like Junior
[Rock] You been warned
[Strang] The storms in the atmosphere
move over make room gunn clappers here
cuz its ill how I kick lyrical skill wit the force
no joke when I leave ya chokin off the exhaust
of course, who else could it be but Mr.Strang
who'll hit that ass from every angle
they dont really wanna tangle

OGC Huricane Starang

2 Pac Shakur Got My Mind Made Up

Don't be mad at Pac because he tantalized your favorite rapper. With his A.K. he's still that thug that you love to hate. Thus far, I don't think that there has been another artist who could talk as much shit as Tupac Shakur. Pac had an incredible ability of raising his voice and getting your adrenaline pumping. Pac could make you feel invincible, bulletproof, like you could take on the world. Mentality of a revolutionary damaged by the harsh reality of life, Tupac was a gifted individual who, like all other human beings, made many mistakes throughout his brief, troubled time upon this earth. "Got My Mind Made Up" from the All Eyez On Me remains one of my favorite flows from 2Pac because shows a great deal of versitility and damn near smashes every other MC to appear on the record. This is a huge statement considering they all brought their A game.

Hear It!

So mandatory my elevation my lyrics like orientation
So you can be more familiar with tha nigga you facin
We must be based on nothin better than communication
Known to damage and highly flamable like gas stations
Sorry I left that ass waitin
No more procrastination give up to fate, and get that asss shakin
I'm bustin and makin motherfuckers panic
Don't take ya life for granted put that ass in the dirt
You swear the bitch was planted
My lyrics motivate the planet
It's similar to Rhythm Nation
but thugged out, forgive me Janet
Who's in control I'm acvtivatin yo souls
You know, the way the games get controlled
Yo, two years ago, a friend of mine
Told me Alize and Cristal blows your mind
Bear witness to the dopest fuckin rhyme I wrote
Takin off my coat, clearing my throat


A sick number of albums, more released after his untimely death than before. In all honesty, some probably should not have been considering it was murdered much like him. 2Pac's lyrics will always be incomparable, yet some producer should have never been allowed in the same room with his music. They could not produce the sound needed to carry Pac's spirit. Jazzy Pha needs a good old fashion south-side of Chicago ass whuppin for his role in Better Dayz. Although Eminem is capable of occaisionally pulling a hot track out of his ass (Renegade), his also did not have what it took to capture Pac's intensity. The man's music is too great to have it continuosly butchered, go ahead and drop that paper on Just Blaze, 9th, Timmy, Neptunes, Dre or Kanye or somebody like that who has shown the abilty to set the mood for vaious artist. Style.
