how does dre feel now?

i mean....like if phonte called me and was like "yo i was listening to your song and you said something about "i punish my little brother"....what did you mean by that?"

i'd tell him i want dissing, but then id get off the phone like "damn he thought i dissed them! were they about to dis me because of that?"

you know what im saying? i wonder if dre thinks the roots were all ready to fire back.

(i promise im not trying to start no shit)

biggie smalls speech impediment strikes again!!!

invisible bully like the roots!
lol

it wouldn't have been so confusing if he didn't mention freestyling in the next few lines... that was a bit of a bug out on first listen or so....

i haven't heard this new tounge twist yet, but it's funny how these things happen...

In response to Reply # 18


          

te ORIGINAL origin to the topic was the Craig Mack "Flavor in Your Ear" remix- where Biggie says "invisible bully like the gooch..."
which people took to say invisible bully like the Roots etc... then he mentions freestyling which furthur made people think he was referring to the roots/riw etc...
it was a pretty hot topic for a week or so before clarity arrived.. and this is pre-okayplayer, and not far enough into the world wide web world for word (for or against the theory) to spread...

my boy was telling me about this just yesterday as i played that record....and i thought it made sense, for all that "one more chance" spoofing in "what they do". but, then i thought the remix had come out b4 "what they do".....thanx for clearing out the confusion.
now enlighten me please...
...invisible like the "GOOCH"?

In response to Reply # 21


          

why do i suddenly feel like a very, very, old man....

the gooch!?!?!?

how can i explain this one... am i really that old?

the gooch man, you know... the walk on character that never walked on (unless it was on somebody's grill), the teacher in charlie brown (at least you heard the voice), an invisible ripple underwater that causes a tidal wave?

anyway, long ago, when child stars were still all the rage, when inter-racial adoption (and the "hil-ari-ous calamities" that ensued) were still considered prime time fodder... there was a show called "Different Strokes"...

pre-crack smokin todd bridges and pre-all sorts of bad made for tv movies (actually during sort of- counting "The Kid From Left Field", a guest appearance on "Buck Rogers" and the sort of play on interracial adoption (and the aforementioned "hil-ari-ous calamities" that ensued) "On the Right Track) Gary Coleman's greatest fear was the Gooch... some dude that was always whippin' somebody's a**, but never (as far as i know) getting any camera time...

hence, invisible bully like the gooch...

of course biggie also said- "Blow up like the World Trade Center"... but that's a different song...

But my family on my mother's side lives there. I heard it was nice. My uncle use to run the boats on the river (Speaking of which, you ain't live until you go on one of their speedboats with no lifejackets).

I wanna visit Guyana soon and hit the waterfalls...

i still remember the first time i heard that... i had the Flavor remix maxisingle tape- the one where if you flipped the reverse switch on your walkman (i was living large back then- my walkman had a rewind button, AND a reverse switch!) and it would allmost loop the track...
anyway, i was etting on the 18 bus when that lyric hit- i got yelled at by the bus driver cause i stopped in mid transpass swipe to rewind the tape and listen to it again...
i was half mad at biggie (for "dissing" the roots) and half semi-stoked that the group had made enough noise to warrant mention in a song of that (i hate to say caliber) level of noteriety...

outkasts new joint "land of a thousand drums" off of scooby soundtrack has a line that I thought said "roots and clones" i made a post about it thinking outkast was giving props to the roots for their song clones talking about some wack-ass mc's, some other heads thought it was a dis, now we all know the lyric in question did not say roots and clones it said fruits and clones or whatever so no big deal next question
