hahaha i'm fucking dying @ this poll - <3 u ship

i think we might need to poll ever song on the young money album, such entertainment

anyway, i voted for this

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

total eclipse of the shart (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 6 January 2010 20:47 (twelve years ago) link

the worst example of this imo is drake in "forever"

swimmin in the money, come and find me - NEMO/ if i was in the club you know i'd ball - CHEMO

if i ever met drake i would wretch his torn acl for those two

total eclipse of the shart (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 6 January 2010 20:49 (twelve years ago) link

the way she hems and haws and fills the whole first bar of her verse with "okay i get it let me think i guess it's my turn" drives me insane xpost

call me mr. brimstone, i can melt your flesh off (some dude), Wednesday, 6 January 2010 20:50 (twelve years ago) link

even though i think Jae Millz in Young Money is kind of weird and depressing and he doesn't seem to have any idea what he's doing there, i kind of like that the NYC battle rapper is somehow the only guy on the song that doesn't drop some boneheaded wordplay

call me mr. brimstone, i can melt your flesh off (some dude), Wednesday, 6 January 2010 20:52 (twelve years ago) link

yeah i think they should kick him out for papoose

haha i'm listening to the Fall Out Boy song where Lil Wayne goes "dear gravity, you held me down" and wondering if maybe Pete Wentz is his full-time ghostwriter now

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

call all destroyer, Thursday, 7 January 2010 15:30 (twelve years ago) link

all i know at this point is that it's not the mr. flintstone line, which at least is an actual bad pun instead of an attempted bad pun that isn't even a pun.

just fyi i think the "grocery bag" line is referring to the fact that grocery bags "got" things, inside them

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.

i was actually kind of going "what? huh?" at this. i'm still not entirely convinced

thomp, Thursday, 7 January 2010 16:34 (twelve years ago) link

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

some dude, Thursday, 7 January 2010 16:42 (twelve years ago) link

im not really standing by the "grocery bags 'got' things" interpretation but its the only one that even approaches the world of meaning to me

max, Thursday, 7 January 2010 16:43 (twelve years ago) link

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.

ah ah oh ooh ooh oh ah ah ah ah ah oh ah ah aha ooh (HI DERE), Thursday, 7 January 2010 16:45 (twelve years ago) link

yeah, you're definitely right. still, the gulf between intent and execution has left us all pondering the mysterious synapses firing off in Gudda Gudda's brain.

one of my pet theories about the Gudda line was that it was "I got a ni**a: Grocery Bag," and Grocery Bag was actually the name of some 4th tier Young Money weed carrier who'd drop verses on Gudda Gudda mixtapes.
