You know youve made it when!
    #3459023 - 12/07/04 11:59 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

A jam band gets props in a RAP song!

From Jay-Z

"Who you know fresher than Hov'? Riddle me that
The rest of y'all know where I'm lyrically at
Can't none of y'all mirror me back
Yeah hearin me rap is like hearin G. Rap in his prime
I'm, young H.O., rap's Grateful Dead
Back to take over the globe, now break bread"


--------------------
"Early man walked away
As modernman took control
There mind's weren't all the same
And to conquer was their goal
So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
He died a confused man
And killed himself in his own mind"

I wonder what makes him think he's the Grateful Dead of rap?

It's just one more inventive way to say "I'm cool, bitches"

And why is that? I mean 98% of all rap songs are a guy talking about how "cool" or "good" he is. WTF, is up with that?

:lol: I don't know, but I think you find it more in mainstream rap. There's a lot of interesting stuff to rap about, and a lot of rappers do say interesting things, but for some reason the songs that people pay attention to is mostly inflated ego stuff.

You can see this phenomenon at work in OTD.. theres a couple kids who "freestyle" on the forum and it's usually about how great they are, how many blunts they smoke, how many hoes they choke, man the other guy's a joke, with the weakass shit he wrote, I get so high I float, etc etc. :tongue:

i know a bunch of people who listen to rap, or i should say i work eith them. and the vote is unanimous that jay-z is the best rapper. so instead of looking bad on it he is actually giving the dead the props for which they deserve. he knows he will go down in history like the dead did.

Yes, but will he make history like they did or be part of something as great as the Dead?

Eh, doubtful.  He'll get shot like Tupac.

Atleast the Dead had acid. :thumbup:

What's Jay-Z got?  A blunt?  Ha.  No competition in my book.

LSD > Blunts

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Extrapolation:

If, The Dead had acid, Jay-Z had blunts, and LSD > Blunts, is assumed to be true then logic tells us that The Dead > Jay-Z.

Yes, so..

Dead > Jay - Z

so.. technically

Dead + Z > Jay

Or

Z > Jay - Dead

Hrm.. mind boggling.
