I keep her running back and forth...SOCCER TEAM!!! (Lil Wayne)

really anything lil wayne has rapped in the past year applies, but sheesh - minaj is really fucking bad at this too of course - the bedrock/stevie wonder lines are bad but so commonplace that they don't even scan

i basically thought i'd misheard all of these at first - SADLY NOT - even as a minaj stan i have to say her verse here is terrible (and yet one of the better ones) and the "ok, let me think about it" first line pisses me off as much as it does shipz

i make bad puns irl all the time but i feel sufficiently embarrassed about it and my wife usually rolls her eyes. puns are like promiscuity or junk food, it's just not right to enjoy them without feeling at least a little but of shame.

apparently the full line in the explicit version is "I got her, nigga...grocery bag." this doesn't really clear anything up, though.

The best I can come up with that is an incredibly clumsy riff on the slang term "bag", although what "grocery" is supposed to add is a total mystery to me unless Gudda Gudda is an ILX lurker and that is a reference to his grocery groin.

so apparently there's been a net rumor for years that Drake is Weezy's ghostwriter. Granted, I don't know anybody who would want to take credit for that circa 2011, but it's funny how many so-called underground hip-hop heads act like The Carter 3 was Wayne's first commercial success.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 8 November 2012 03:27 (1 year ago) Permalink

The hashtag seems to her a distant cousin of the refrain: a phrase that relates in different, complex ways — direct or tangential, ironic or nonsensical — to the lines it follows. It also has something in common with parentheses, explaining or qualifying whatever phrase it interrupts. And where it captures the author’s mood or aspect, it resembles the epithet, the “white-armed Nausicaas” and “wine-dark seas” that populate the “Odyssey.”
