What you thought I was giving Common’s verse on “Stay Schemin” a hearse? I mean he did kill it, correct? He got Drizzy good, and most importantly he was straight up about it. No subliminal crap! That’s the ingredients for a good 1V1H, except for the fact that it’s a Drake diss. I’m not being a Drake stan either. Just ask yourself about how this beef started. Was it because of Serena Williams? Drake being soft? Or Common trying to sell albums? They’re all dumb reasons. That’s were Common loses his 1V1H points. Why is he dissing Drake?!
Last week I said that “Lord Knows” was the most jaw-dropping track on Take Care. Well, Kendrick’s “Buried Alive” is the deepest most thought provoking headache causing track on the album. Seriously, this is one of my favorite verses of the year. The flow, the lyrics, the topic, everything was on point. People like Kendrick keep poetry in Hip-Hop alive. I find it beautiful when a rapper can craft a verse with so much care, and attention to detail. Kendrick buried this verse alive with the ongoing analogies, and his interesting exploration of fame.
We’re finally here. Better late than never. Although “Lord Knows” isn’t my personal favorite from the album, it’s definitely the most jaw dropping track on Take Care. For the record, my favorites were “Practice”, “H.Y.F.R.”, and Kendrick’s verse on “Buried Alive”. My god, Kendrick had the best verse on the album! But I know you guys wanted to read about some Drizzy. So Drizzy you will get. I’m not downplaying “Lord Knows” though. Drake showed a lot of emotion, and “pwnded” the haters. So lets go, 1 Verse, 1 Hearse #12, Drizzy Drake, #OVOXO.
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.
Listening to Camp, I felt like Justin Bieber when he got the paternity lawsuit. Where did this come from? Then I said, “is that Donald Glover from Community? Damn, he can rap.” Gambino has everything too. The depth, wordplay, metaphors, similes, production, and hooks. Just picking a song to hearse was a task. In the end, “Fire Fly” was the hottest in my ears, since I felt that it embodied the entire album rather nice. Yes, summer is long gone, but let’s go on a short camping trip to Gambino’s commercial debut.
Hear ye, hear ye young morticians. This week Kang Tip and his royal potna known as Sk8brd P came through and executed “Here Ye, Hear Ye”. The Kang delivered a strong message to all opinionated peons doubting the hustle. Son who asked you? Although peons across the land shook in fright, the sword with the following words inscribed, “If wishes had wings, they’d all make it to heaven and we’d all be kings” wiped out the entire land. Ye hear me?
I’ve been meaning to throw this song in the Killer hearse since last week. But if you remember, I had to take that trip to Cole World. The verse carcass is really stinking up my computer too, so I have to get rid of it. Plus it’s perfect timing for those of you who take the bawse for granted. Rozay may not blow you away with lyrics or depth, but he’ll always make you grunt after listening. UGH. The Just Blaze produced “I Love My Bitches” is no exception. Don’t take Ross for granted, God forgives, Rozay won’t.
C’mon let’s go. Hurry up already. Where are we going you ask? Oh, I’m taking you to one of the most remote places on Cole World. We’re going to go visit “Daddy’s Little Girl”. She’s being held hostage by iTunes on the bonus tracks of Cole World: The Sideline Story. Trust me she’s worth the trip. Some say she’ll take it to the face without throwing up, and she’s some sort of Sade mixed with Shawty Lo. “Daddy’s Little Girl” showcases Cole’s social awareness and the rare ability to deliver a positive message. Hopefully when we un-cage her from this iTunes cage, people will see the beauty in her. Buckle up, it’s going to be a long drive.
