Well he gets some props from me for his references to Strange Fruit and On the Waterfront. Setting aside whether or not you appreciate his music, as a lyricist he is extremely talented. Sick, as my son would say.

Here are the lyrics to that song you posted, I'm having trouble finding the talented part. I'm really looking bloomer.... Maybe it's just me...... peace

I just wanna clear my mind now
It's been racin' since the summertime
And I'm holdin' down the summer now
And all I want is what I can't buy now
Cause I ain't got the money on me right now
And I told you to wait
Yeah I told you to wait
So I'm a need a little more time now
Cause I ain't got the money on me right now
And I thought you could wait
Yeah, I thought you could wait
These bitches surroundin' me
All want somethin' out me
Then they talk about me
Would be lost without me
We could've been somebody
Thought you'd be different 'bout it
Now I know you naughty
So let's get on with it

You could've been somebody
'Stead you had to tell somebody
Let's take it back to the first party
When you tried your first molly
And came out of your body
And came out of your body
Running naked down the lobby
And you was screamin' that you love me
Before the limelight tore ya
Before the limelight stole ya
Remember we were so young
When I would hold you
Before the glory
I know there ain't wrong with me

Something strange is happening

You could've been somethin'
We could've, we could've been somebody
Or was it all our first party
When we tried our first molly
And came out of our body
And came out of our body

Before they call lawyers
Before you tried to destroy us
How you gon' lie to the lawyers?
It's like I don't even know ya
I gotta bring it back to the 'Nolia

@#$%& them other niggas cause I'm down with my niggas
@#$%& them other niggas cause I'm down with my niggas
@#$%& them other niggas cause I'm down with my niggas
I ride with my niggas, I'll die for my...

To all my second string bitches, trying to get a baby
Trying to get a baby, now you talkin' crazy
I don't give a damn if you used to talk to Jay-Z
He ain't with you, he with Beyonce, you need to stop actin' lazy
She Instagram herself like "Bad bitch alert"
He Instagram his watch like "Mad rich alert"
He only wanna see that ass in reverse
Two thousand dollar bag with no cash in your purse
Now you sittin' courtside, wifey on the other side
Gotta keep 'em separated, I call that apartheid
Then she said she impregnated, that's the night your heart died
Then you gotta go and tell your girl and report that
Main reason cause your pastor said you can't abort that
Now your driver say that new Benz you can't afford that
All that cocaine on the table you can't snort that
That going to that owing money that the court got
On and on that alimony, uh, yeah-yeah, she got you homie
'Til death but do your part, unholy matrimony

Heck NL, what are you comparing it to...Stray Cat Blues or @#$%&? I don't pretend to get hip hop and rap, but I do know that the lyrics can't be separated from the beat, the rhythmic chant. Of course it looks kinda ridiculous on a page, it's not meant to be experienced that way.

Okay, I'm taking a peace out from this thread. cool smiley

I especially like how he rhymes afford that with abort that and snort that.

Classic!

what in god's name is a boognish? oh, I guess that's what google is for:

boognish
1.) Demon God who has shown himself thrice to the prophet brothers Deaner and Gener. Resides somewhere outside the orbital buffer. Tradition has it that this entity holds a sceptor in each hand: that of wealth and that of power.
2.) slang term for nooglet.
Big Fat @#$%&.......Feeling Like A Big Fat @#$%&

Maybe the full performance makes more sense : New Slaves + Blood On The Leaves







Another great live performance by Kanye West :

Ha...excellent post. You can isolate the lyrics of more than a dozen Stones songs and have a laugh or a sneer.

That line was nicked from a 1930's blues song so you can't give Mick all the credit for the, uh, inspiration.

No worries bloomer, you are totally right about the lyrics can't generally be separated and analyzed too closely, as true for rock as it is for rap and R & B. Unless you're Bob Dylan, the poetry usually doesn't work on it's own.

I guess I was just questioning the "as a lyricist he is extremely talented" part, trying to understand where it came from. peace

Sorry latebloomer...I was just making an obscure Rolling Stones lyrical reference to 'tie it all together' so to speak, so not actually 'offended' by anything!

Maybe 'mock-offended'?! Too early for wine, but I'm pounding back the coffee this morning! smileys with beer

Hilarious but probably more common than Rockman thinks. My Mom had a Grizzly with cubs visit her orchard a few years back with similar funny results, they stayed till closing time (3 days) and ruined alot of apple trees. Fish and Game wouldn't remove the bears "lady, just keep your dogs inside and enjoy the show" but she probably didn't mention the contributing to the delinquency of minors aspect of the event. drinking smiley peace

I'm not a fan of Sam Smith BUT the song " Stay With Me" does not sound like Petty's song at all. Tom Petty made enough money in his day, let the guy alone!
I HATE Kanye West. The guy is such a media pig. And obnoxious, arrogant and a total BORE!
I had to toss my 2 cents in. Other than that, I enjoyed the Grammy Awards a lot this year.
