You ain’t got to lie, Craig. We know you have listened to a song with a bar/lyric that made you contort your face into that ” WTF” angle. It’s your jam during rush hour traffic and when the DJ drops it, you are lit; but one day ( maybe you were exploring the herbal essence of life or sipping some of the big HOMIE’S miracle) you were in tune with your conscious self. No matter how creative you may have imagined the artist to be, the shhh just doesn’t make any sense. There isn’t enough metaphors and literary content to make the shhh cohesive. Even the best have fallen victim.
When I think of lyrics that don’t make any sense, rappers take the cake especially Lil Wayne because, well, his spelling game isn’t as strong as his self proclaimed d!ck/tongue game.
Song: Sky’s The Limit
Lyrics: “And I ain’t gotta lie when I tell you I’m the illest/ My flow is nasty, like C Y Phyllis“.
But that’s not how you spell syphilis though.
(But wait. There’s more…)
Lyrics: “Weezy F. Baby, and the F stands for phenomenal“
Bruh, what school system promoted Weezy to the next grade level? Fix it Jesus.
Oh and Chamillionaire isn’t any better.
Song: Still Tippin”
Lyrics: “Always been about them horizontal lines through them S’s
That’s a dollar sign”.
That ain’t no dollar sign, bih. That’s a strikethrough. Dollar signs have vertical lines, bruh.
Lorde proved that she wants nice shh just like the rest of us. While the song, “Royals” questions the notion of materialism and wealth as a means to having a happy life, clearly Lorde might just be p!ssed off because she couldn’t afford shh.
Lyrics: “we don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams“
Yes she does care! I see the bus route or Ford Fiesta didn’t make it dream land.
Whether we have been through heart break or not, Adele’s “21” album was the shhh, right? Beautiful body of work, but that “Set Fire To The Rain” had some of us wondering was that even possible.
Song: Set Fire To The Rain
Lyrics: “But I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face”
How do you set fire to something that has properties that eliminate fires? Head tilt.
I can do this all day, but you get the picture.
Don’t get your panties in a bunch. It’s just for shhh and giggles.
