Anyway, this week’s lyrics come from one of the biggest up and coming rappers in the music business right now: Young Jeezy. I love the snowman. Really, I do. Nevertheless, some of his lyrics need to venture further than selling drugs, having lots of diamonds, and taking new women home from the club everynight. Here is the first verse from his song “Go Crazy”: (more in expanded post)
like Krispy Kreme donuts I was cooking ounces of cocaine,
like Horse Shoes I was distributing these cooked up ounces of cocaine–commonly known as crack,
when it was time to visit the person that gives me the cocaine I had to turn in the drug money and use that to get fronted more cocaine,
it’s as if I’m emotional, the way I “hug” (frequently stand on) the street corner where I sell crack,
I’m so emotional, I love my Glock (a type of gun),
cash is the king of the world I dwell in so what is more real?,
I’m all about the money, you can call me a surreptitious killer,
it’s a bit hard to be drug free,
when Georgia Power, the company that controls the electric utility in Atlanta, won’t give an ignorant person their electrical services free,
I switch means of slyly getting money from people, and I’ve been doing well ever since,
it’s a good thing to tell the truth, friend, it only makes sense.
WHAT!?! Comment, please!
