Do you ever cringe when you hear a rapper misuse a word? Yeah me too. So to keep myself from kicking an old lady in the shin, I’ve started a new blog series in which I will release all my anger, and define those misused words, and bring illogical lyrics into the light. Long story short, this will be a place to expose stupid lyrics. Every so often a new edition of Deaf•initions will hit your eyes. Enjoy the first edition below. Please don’t stab your ears.
Drake – The Motto (Ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga)
Spanish girls love me like I’m Aventura
Surprise! Spain is a country in Europe. Therefore people from that country are….Spanish. I doubt any significant amount of Spanish girls love Aventura anyways. Certainly not enough to make a comparison like the one above. You can’t identify people based on the language they speak. You can’t blame Drake too much though, everyone is doing this and it makes me want to stomp a baby everytime I hear someone use “Spanish” incorrectly. Spanish girls are from Spain! A Dominican girl is NOT Spanish. She’s Dominican! Damn.
Dr. Dre – Aint Nuthin’ But A G Thang (Ft. Snoop Dogg)
Never let me slip ’cause If I slip, then I’m slippin’
Man I can just see your face right now. After reading the deaf•inition above. Your fingers are just itching to write something about Drake. But let me catch your fall there player. Everybody slips, even the greats like Dre. If he slips, then he’s slippin’. Duh? You know I tried to put my 1 Verse, 1 Hearse mentality on this, but I can’t see how, why, where, or when anyone would ever hit rewind on this line. If you slip, then you’re slippin’? Wow. Yea and if you stall, then you’re stalling, and if you delay, then you’re delaying. If you slack, then you’re slackin’. Detox Dre. Detox. Read your lyrics out loud too.
Lil Wayne – Yes (Ft. Pharrell)
Weezy F. and the F is for phenomenal
Tune hate to break it to ya, but phenomenal starts with the letter P. Yea, sorry. Farrell should’ve told you man. I know.
Childish Gambino – Hold You Down
The same reason Will Smith always opposite Latino girls
Latina girls Gambino. Feminine suffix. Latina. Ah but other than this lazy mistake, Camp was an outstanding album. Especially that “Fire Fly” track.
Every other Lil Wayne song before Rickers
Weezy Fuckin’ Baby
This is why rappers need to read their lines out loud. WEEZY fuckin’ BABY? Weezy FUCKIN’ Baby!
Rick Ross – Yella Diamonds
Go cash a check just like a dolphin, nigga
Everytime I go to the bank, there’s always a bunch of damn dolphins everywhere, UGH. Damn dolphins always stealing the bank pens, with their phones ringin’, probably talking to the Mexicans. Then there’s the young dolphin kids jumping on the chairs, screaming, throwing tantrums, and spilling juice all over the damn floor. I am always fortunate enough to step on the juice too. Then I have to deal with sticky shoes all day. I hate those damn dolphins cashing their checks at my bank. I’d rather stand in line next to the dolphin football players Ross probably tried to allude to, but miserably failed, nigga. Read your raps out loud, nigga. You just said dolphins have the ability to cash checks, nigga. Oh man, I think I’m Rick Ross. William Roberts. Hallelujah.
Notorious B.I.G. – What’s Beef
Hope they know my nigga Gutter fuckin’ kidnap kids, Fuck ‘em in the ass, throw ‘em over the bridge
Woah woah woah. Woah…Woah. I’ve never understood this line, and probably never will. Calling the whole scenario a metaphor is too much of a stretch if you ask me. Thank God 2012 doesn’t know what beef is.
Also, the definition of classic is something that stands the test of time, and is still relevant years after. For example, Jay’s Reasonable Doubt. People right now call something classic even before it officially hits store shelves. Chill it with that, you’re killin’ me. Most of y’all will probably delete that classic album off your iTunes as soon as the new Lil Wayne record comes out.
If you have any suggestions for the next installment of deaf•initions, drop me a tweet @QuezKHH or write on the KillerHipHop facebook wall, and hopefully it makes the next installment. You could always drop a suggestion in the comments, but it’s better if you tweet me or drop a comment on our facebook wall, trust me. Now rappers, Quez is now on the hunt for illogical, misused words in your lyrics. Stay on your toes, ballet for me, hah.
