Two Words….

on May 8, 2009

 

Two words, United States, no love, no brakes
Low brow, high stakes, crack smoke, black folks
Big Macs, fat folks, ecstasy capsules
Presidential scandals, everybody MOVE
Two words, Mos Def, K West, hot shit
Calm down, get back, ghetto people, got this
Game ball, lock shit, dump off, cock shit
We won’t stop shit, everybody MOVE

I was just debating classic hip hop albums with a few friends last week after watching JD’s Living the Life vlog about hip hop heavyweights. I won’t get into that discussion because its deep,  its personal, and quite frankly I don’t think I’ll ever agree with most people. LOL. Anybody that  knows me knows how much I stan for Jay Z. He’s my favorite and that doesn’t make him the greatest– no, but he’s one of the best to ever do it. IN MY OPINION. So to me he’s a super heavy weight. But this blog isn’t about him…today, lol. One of my first blog posts was about Biggie and Pac and I kinda don’t want to revisit the topic since it isn’t about them today EITHER!

anyway, folks that commented on the youtube vid were throwing out Kanye as a heavyweight. I think he’s a better producer than lyricist, which is different than artist/entertainer TO ME. As an artist/entertainer he makes hot music…and according to JD’s criteria, one classic album makes you a heavyweight. College Dropout is that classic. I was telling my babe that Two Words was one of my favorite songs on the CD, if not the favorite. so today when I found the video I got excited…had to share. Props to Google Reader because I would have never even known about the site it was posted on if I hadn’t been “browsing for stuff”.

I now have a new site to follow Honey Soul Music.

check the vid: I love me some Mos Def….I truly think he’s one of the best out….and Freeway is crazy too! Well, he used to be.

 

Vodpod videos no longer available.

    OK, why didn’t I know there was a video to this song. This is my FAVORITE track off the CD. Mos sets it off for me.

    As far as ‘Ye is concerned, he’s a hot producer no doubt. I often find that his tightest lyrics are other other collabos (i.e., Jay’s “Run This Town).
