1 Verse, 1 Hearse #11, Jay-Z – I Do

November 24, 2011 · Posted in 1 verse 1 hearse · 21 Comments 

When Jay asked me to, “pull a hearse up, my verse up”. I said, “I D-O, I D-O, I D-O oh oh”. I have no choice ladies and gentlemen…and lowlifes. I have to take care of this verse because lord knows you only live once. Plus, I think Jay owes me a shout out. That’s my stuff Jigga, 1 Verse, 1 Hearse.

I D-O, I D-O, I D-O oh oh
I be though, promise to treat this game, I D O
Honour the code, not bring drama to mama’s peephole
Life’s a bitch but she ‘s the only love that I know – oh oh
So la-a-dee, after the “I Do’s” lets do Mercedes
Lets tie the knot, lets grab us a pot, lets make a baby
Looking back, I don’t know who threw this bouquet to me
But I walk down this aisle faithfully, cut that cake for me
I Jay-Z, take this unlawful lady to have and to hold
Until the task force grow
To hug her every corner til I get ash from the coal
Or until I’ve amassed a fortune, too much cash for me to fold
Fold under pressure I would never, ever, ever, ever
Your secret’s I treasure, for better or worser
You’ll always be my first love til death do us part
Pull a hearse up, my verse up

For this special hearse, I will start at the end, then jump to the beginning since the last line is my favorite line. When Jay said, “pull a hearse up, my verse up”, he was talking about killing this certain verse, thus obligating us to give it a proper burial. Which means driving the verse to the cemetery via hearse. It’s all an analogy. But was Jay inspired to write that because he reads my blog? I have no idea to be honest. Just the possibility is good enough for me. But you know what? I’m going to go out on a limb and demand a shout out from Jigga. That’s my line bro. I know I inspired you, ha. The way you said, “verse up” sounds like you’re asking somebody to put your hearse verse up on a web page.

Now let’s go back to the beginning of the verse because even if you subtract the last line, Jay still kills this verse. 2011 Hip-Hop verses are like a collage of ideas, and punchlines. So when I heard Jay take an analogy for a full 16 bars, I couldn’t help but to do the LA Reid head bob. Jay’s metaphors where so on point throughout that I thought he was talking about Beyonce at times.

The chronological order in which Mr. Carter keeps his verse definitely makes it that much more killer. This man puts some thought behind his work. After saying his “I Do’s” Jay goes on to talk about his marriage with Hip-Hop. “But I walk down this aisle faithfully, cut that cake for me”, is one of my favorite lines from the verse. In a wedding the couple cuts the cake. In this sense Jay is talking about cake as in money, and Hip-Hop paying off. So he’s stayed faithful, and Hip-Hop has payed off. I love this guys metaphors. From that point on it’s the usual Jay with tons of internal rhyming in treasure, better, and worser. ah. Staying in chronological order, Jigga ends the verse by promising to stay with his love ’till death. Then, of course, Jay signed off with, “pull a hearse up, my verse up”.

So Jay-Z, I did just like you asked. I even had to get the Killer hearse towed out of Gambino’s Camp, because 50,000 freaks and geeks tipped it over. I also had to rent a forklift to load your verse into the back of the hearse. Yes, that thing was heavy, filled with tons of metaphors, and cake? To add to the trouble, a few dozen people are going to kill me, because I still haven’t taken care of some black hoodie, gold chain, Rolex, glove wearing rap stuff. Look what you’ve done Jay. You’re going to make someone around me catch a body like that. You know, give a guy a shout out.

    I like this guy’s blogs but he starting to sound a lot like some YM groupie with all these corny references to punchlines.


  8. sciz on November 24th, 2011 4:11 pm

    Jay ain’t talkin bout his love for hip hop, he’s talkin bout coke, listen a little better.


  9. VA on November 24th, 2011 6:33 pm

    JayZs verse was dope but 3000verse was better


  10. John Doe!!! on November 24th, 2011 7:57 pm

    jay was referring to his relationship with the crack game not hip hop.

    “I Jay-Z, take this unlawful lady to have and to hold
    Until the task force grow
    To hug her every corner til I get ash from the coal
    Or until I’ve amassed a fortune, too much cash for me to fold”

    This verse definitely deserves a hearse


  11. Shoti on November 25th, 2011 9:11 am

    Tyga once used this “1 verse 1 hearse” phrase in his verses.
