What's up y'all? It's Van, making a return appearance to Wex's Wednesdays. So yesterday, I'm at home listening to some mix CD I made a ways back and Redman's "Whateva Man" comes on. The first line of the second verse is something I get a kick out of every single time I hear it: "I smoked with a lot of college, students/Most of 'em, wasn't graduatin and they knew it." Genius!
Anyway, today's Wex's Wednesdays is list your favorite rap lines. Aside from that one, here's a couple of others I really dig:
1) "Well I'm that kid in the corner/All fucked up and I wanna so I'm gonna"--Beastie Boys, "Sure Shot". Man, that line gets me hype every time I hear it!
2) "What a way to go out, out like a sucker/But I'm on track, like a Long Island train conductor"--EPMD, "I'm Housin'". Sadly, it took me about 15 years to make out E saying "Long Island train conductor." Now that I know, I'm hooked on that lyric.
3) "I got 7 mac 11's, about 8 38's, 9 9's, 10 mac 10's/the shit never ends/You can't touch my riches/Even if you had MC Hammer and them 357 bitches"--Notorious B.I.G., that Biggie/2pac live song (I'm not sure of the title.) When I moved up here, that was on the radio all the time and I thought it was pretty dope. That still runs through my head all the time.
Those are a few. What's yours?
