Understand Rap: Explanations Of Confusing Rap Lyrics

10 Oct

This came through in the mail today and caught my interest. Similar to Jay-Z’s upcoming book, Decoded,Understand Rap provides explanations to some of the game’s most iconic quotables. The book drops today and is also available on Amazon. Peep an excerpt below.

Lyric: “I was strapped wit’ gats when you were cuddled wit’ cabbage patch.”
Lyric From Song “Forgot About Dre”
On Album 2001
By Artist Dr. Dre
Explanation: When you were still a child and had no concerns other than playing with dolls in the comfort and safety of your home, I was carrying guns around in my dangerous neighborhood.

Lyric “I ain’t pass the bar, but I know a little bit”
Lyric From Song “99 Problems”
On Album The Black Album
By Artist Jay-Z
Explanation: Although I haven’t educated myself concerning the matters necessary to complete the examination lawyers take to be able to practice law, I have enough knowledge to be a very successful rapper and entrepreneur and to have sustained a level of wealth greater than many lawyers.
