7. "Slient treatment...." In response to Reply # 0
...I like that verse cause it seems like you get more of HIM, than just his skills. If that's not from a true-life experience, then my man's got a vivid imagination.......just something that I was thinking..........<P>****************************************<P>"To whom much is given, much is required" Phillipa Duke Schuyler MIddle School for the Gifted and Talented (Those who are down, know...)<P>"Nothing in life is permanent....not even life"<BR> --El Hajj Malik El Shabazz (Malcolm X)<P> <BR>OMAR--Medford,MA c/o East Flatbush, Brookyln.<P>And no, I'm not the Omar from MTV's wanna be a VJ contest...so please don't ask, Okayplayer? <BR>
silent treatment has to be overall one of the roots best songs and i also really dig what BT raps on it.......it's not like it's the most prolific, dope metaphor verse, it's just the art of storytellin' at it's best.......has to be one of his best.<P>willy<P>"nothing is new to me but i'm still learning" -talib kweli
I can't really choose his best verse, but my favorite verse from Tariq is his verse in Clones.....<P>I use the mic to slap you in the face, erase your taste/<BR>Disgrace your gate, put your title to waste.<BR>Dominant lyrical grace from a place called wild/<BR>Illadelph thou Pennsy, that's the residency....One of my favorites..., peace.. <P><BR>"You'll get shoved to the side cousin for talking all that thug shit/ <BR>I'll hit you with the Henessey bottle that you in love with".... <P>(This lyric quote brought to you by SkipGotSkills)..<P>Who the hell is Sinista 7 anyway...??????
i vote for "desperado"...the way that dude introduces each verse is marvelous...<BR>1st verse<BR>"in the glow of the moon over the meloncholy metro my poetry is seen like a U-FO"<BR>2nd verse<BR>"its the empehr-or/the univerese exlplohr-or/treat emcees like cities of sohdam and gahmora(sp)/leaving these niggas open like the box of pandora/while styles stay newer than the world order"... <P>k.e.n. thinks...<BR>"thinking is inevitable...learning is inate...too much<BR>of either with no direction and action is insane..."<BR>
How about verses? I like his verse on Distortion to Static and his verse on Ital:The Universal Side.<BR>"I got this "Ahh Child" style/up close and personal/the first I find to violate/ I shall retal/ iate with realism for their whole locale to relate/we on point like decimal<P>What!!!
