“Now we don’t even train, we just show up to the game and drop a 100 on each mane/ Man I take things and I make things and I hate gangs/ All up in your (e)x-box and I don’t play games”
Tesfa has no problem playing y’all if you want to challenge him. Since he is a busy guy on his grind, he probably doesn’t have time to practice yet will still be able to drop buckets on every one of your players (metaphorically speaking). How does he retain his skills? By continuing to make things like dope rap records and swooning all the ladies that come his way. And if you are loser that not only got a 100 dropped on you but also lost a girlfriend, best believe Tesfa The Twin will be in your “ex” box. But he ain’t talking about Microsoft. Not that XBox. He doesn’t play those games. The XBox he is talking about is a private part and the fruits of his labor and hard work.
I wonder if Tesfa played SNES though, considering he is rapping over this dope ass Donkey Kong Country instrumental. Maybe he is trying to say that he is Donkey Kong from the 80s, stealing Mario’s girl and getting her Ex-Box? Or maybe it’s just a dope beat he himself chose to produce.
If you guys liked his wordplay/metaphors/production on this track, then check out his Soundcloud and follow him on Twitter and Facebook. Support your local artists and check out my man’s dope rhymes!
Only way you catch an F/ To the A-B, it’s in the May-B, rolling with my baby/ Gripping on a toy that you won’t find at KB
Fab is too illustrious and famous to be caught in the streets. But in those rare occasions you do see him, you’ll most likely spot him cruising in the Maybach while gripping on a toy. Don’t confuse this toy with something that toddlers are going to run into KB Toys for. This isn’t Tickle Me Elmo or Legos. This toy is something you need to get from your local gun dealer or a 3D printer. That is because Fabulous is talking about a gun. Even with his fame and Maybach, Fab is compelled to carry a weapon with him in case people are out to steal his baby.
Since KB Toys is now out of business, we shouldn’t expect anyone to run off to the store and look for this toy that Fab is speaking off. The oblivious ones that don’t understand rap lyrics can go to Toys R Us.
Who knew dude that loved apple pies from McDonalds/ Would soon be the boss of the Big Apple? Ya know!
Jay Z has mentioned before that he used to eat the $1 for 2 Apple Pies at McDonalds. McDonald is most likely not the type of food that Hov will eat these days. But at the time of his hustler, “trying to make it days”, these cheap apple pies probably got him through the day. That little bit of struggle, and sugar rush, eventually paid off. Years later, Jigga Man is now one of the most influential people from New York City. He went from apple pies to the Big Apple.
I wonder what the outcome would have been if he had Wendy’s Frostys instead.
New crib, watch a movie cause ain’t nothin on the news but the blues/ Hit the mall, pick up some Gucci, now ain’t nothing new but your shoes
Many human beings do whatever they can to suppress negative emotions. We are bombarded by depressing news stories, so we decide to watch movies in order to escape from reality. We see so many people living these glamorous lives (especially on TV), so we spend our money on the latest high end fashions. We focus our attention on the new crib, movies and shoes they we get. But at the end of the day, are these really changing our lives for the long term? Are they making us happy or are they just ways to cope with reality and self-esteem issues?
There is nothing wrong with wanting to watch a movie or buying new products. But hopefully it doesn’t become an obsession with movies (and the stars in them) and buying the latest shoes.
He gives me powder, he has faith in Nas’ ambitions to distribute coke/ Had addictions to gold chains, Mercedes Benz hopes, but I’m again broke/ This shit ain’t cut for me, other dealers, they up their orders/ Barely at 62s, they already up to quarters/ They out there every day, some true hustlers for you/ I’m at it half way, none of my customers are loyal
Nas details the dichotomies between a low level drug pusher versus a more experienced veteran. As a newbie dealer, the hopes and ambitions to make it big and own a Mercedes clouds the mind of a young hustler. The motivation is there, but at the same time you are competing with other dealers that have more experience and loyal customers. Though that Mercedes Benz is inspiring the young dealer, it may take a lot of time and experience until you are making the big bucks like the established hustlers. Without the loyal customers, there will be no luxurious cars or gold chains.
The drug game can help young kids in impoverished areas make quick cash. But is the Mercedes worth it at the end of the day?
Nickel Nina nigga Twitter beefing/ First rapper that shot a fan/ Gucci’s my absolute state of mind like Waka’s man
You gotta love Royce Da 5’9″. He is never one to shy away from a Twitter beef. Whether you are a rapper, critic or disgruntled fan, you better beware if you are talking shit. This guy is about his business and haters are not on his mind. The main thing he is thinking about is Gucci. Just like Waka Flocka Flame’s state of mind, which is also about Gucci. Except in Royce’s case, it’s about the luxury fashion brand. For Waka, it’s about Gucci Mane. Or at least it was around 2011. Ironically, Waka also had a Twitter beefing moment of his own and is not too down with Radric Davis. So Royce and Waka sure have a lot in common with Twitter beefing and a Gucci state of mind.
Whatever the case, this double entendre is extremely fitting.
Got friends on facebook, all over the worrrld/ Not sure what that means, they tell me it’s goooood
Eminem is the best selling artist of the last decade. He has won almost every major award and earned the accolades and respect of all his peers. It’s interesting that one of the most bankable artists in the struggling music industry manages to have a strong social media presence across various outlets. He has garnered over 77 Million Likes on Facebook and 16 million followers on Twitter. he has all of those followers even with very little social activity (the Twitter page only has 266 tweets after more than 4 years).
Though it may be different for newer artists trying to break into the industry, perhaps musicians don’t need to heavily rely on social media in order to be liked and have people interested in you. Maybe the music will speak for itself.
