Cool Street's disciple, my raps are trifle I shoot slugs from my brain just like a rifle

........

Stampede the stage, I leave the microphone split
Play Mr. Tuffy while I'm on some Pretty Tone ****
Verbal assassin, my architect pleases
When I was twelve, I went to hell for snuffin Jesus
Nasty Nas is a rebel to America
Police murderer, I'm causin hysteria
My troops roll up with a strange force
I was trapped in a cage and let out by the Main Source
Swimmin in women like a lifeguard
Put on a bulletproof ***** I strike hard
Kidnap the President's wife without a plan
And hangin ****** like the Ku Klux Klan
I melt mics till the sound waves over
Before steppin to me you'd rather step to Jehovah
Slammin MC's on cement
Cause verbally, I'm iller than a AIDS patient
I move swift and uplift
your mind shoot the gift when I riff in rhyme
Rappin sniper, speakin real words
My thoughts react, like Steven Spielberg's
Poetry attacks, paragraphs punch hard
My brain is insane, I'm out to lunch God
Science is dropped, my raps are toxic
My voicebox locks and excels like a rocket

Your raps are trifle?

You play Mr. Tuffy while you're on some Pretty Tone shit?

Your architect pleases?

Your troops roll up with a strange force?

You were let out by the Main Source?

Your thoughts react like Steven Spielberg's poetry attacks? Were those in E.T.?



^^^WTF does any of this mean please?

I'm not too familiar with rap, maybe this is what it's supposed to be like, but some of this just sounds like nonsense/bad writing/strained rhyming. Like here, how about your "troops roll up with insane force" instead, that sounds better. And you've gotta love how rappers spend 90% of their songs talking about how good they are, whether or not they actually are.

I don't know, maybe you just wrote this quickly, in which case it is pretty good.

"swimming in women like a lifeguard"? Is this trying to say something about lifeguards and swimming or lifeguards and promiscuity?

trifle = street/gutter;
mr tuffy = he's a g, but keeps it smooth w/ the women (pretty tone);
architect = the way he designs his rhymes;
main source = the crew he's rhyming with;
thoughts react like steven spielberg's (end line)/ poetry attacks.

Nas' biggest mistake was debuting with Illmatic, that shit can never be topped.

I'm not trying to be a ***** about this, but alot of this is AAVE that I've never heard.

So translation equals:

My raps are "street" or My rhymes are "gutter". Ok that works, although I fail to see the connection between the word "trifle" and either "street" or "gutter".

I won't even touch "Mr. Tuffy" or "Pretty Tone sh*t".

I was thrown off with the architect part, because it seems like he is using architect as a noun, but he's actually using it as a verb. Or is he using it as a noun? How can the word "architect" (usually referring to a person) refer to the way he designs his rhymes? Shouldn't it be architecture? Or if he's using it as a verb, putting "my" before it flies in the face of basic English. That's like, if you disappear, saying "my disappear pleases." No, "your DISAPPEARANCE pleases" GODDAMNIT it, you have to convert the verb into a noun in that context you moron!!!

Why would you call your rhyming crew "the Main Source"? What is the meaning there? The main source for what?

And it is good to know that Steven Spielberg has not been conducting poetry attacks against anyone, but I would like to know in what way his thoughts react? And to what? If he'd just said "I make films like Steven Spielberg", I would still be on board the comprehension train. Maybe I'm just too literal.



Seriously, why in God's name do black people take slang this far, where it isn't even understandable as English anymore?

And is this written by Nas?

Well that didn't come off as slightly racist at all, considering rap is for all races...

Why do white people take it too far and write so called rock music while under the influence of drugs that no one can understand?

You`re right, it wasn`t racist at all. Thanks.

Anyways, black people invented rock and roll, as well as rap. And the slang in this rap song, and in most rap songs, is African-American slang. It would be stupid to deny this, so I`m sure you`re not implicitly doing so.
