Even my rabid 2Pac Stanboy m8 thinks Brenda's Got A Baby is corny, but I've got a soft spot for the song, meself. Forget The Rose That Grew From Concrete, Brenda's Got A Baby is the manure that Slick Rick's All Alone (No One To Be With) grew from.
I need to see another boring sausage-fest Rap video of lads mean-muggin' in a parking lot like Jaws needs a raincoat. Square rappers & your social circles take note - the realest shit Lupe Fiasco ever wrote was "anything look good with a titty next to it, and the titty got a face that's pretty next to it."
Top 5 Rap songs I need to drop ASAP: Ya Boy Big Choo's Hustlas remix, Ezale's Hotel Motel, Eatem & Johnny Hustle's Stamina, and Duke Deuce's Just Say That and Lock Em In The Trunk remake.
Sum shit that bugs me out: a Little Shawn B-side called Check It Out Y'all was the spark which ignited 2Pac's beef with Biggie because that's the song 2Pac was supposed to record a guest verse for the night he was robbed and shot at Quad Studios in 1994. Probably woulda sounded good on that shit too because 2Pac & Easy Mo Bee production was the proverbial Good Combination™.
Sux that it took Traxamillion dying for me to remember how good the original Slapp Addict version of Too $hort's Shittin' On 'Em is. Peak disrespectful $hort over one of Traxamillion's dumbest knocks, it makes a far better Burn Rubber sequel than the actual Burn Rubber Part 2.
The realest shit Homeboy Sandman ever wrote is either "the city is a multitude of alleys where I've peed" from Unraveling or "I love taking a leak between waking and sleep" from Monument. Rap music is a diuretic - yeah I said it!!
