Dating game handsome boy lyrics
Grand Wizard Theodore: Hip hop is universal now it all depends upon on what you do.
DJ Jazzy Jeff: Hip hop is like what you would call the bastard child of a lot of different forms of music.
The thing about Handsome Boy is that it's not just about being funny, but it's a commentary on hip-hop, on people taking on drug dealer names. To me, it's a cultural satire of sorts." An article published by The Guardian reads "It was something of a logistical headache.
Before they could even start work, label closures shunted them from Tommy Boy to Elektra to Atlantic. Based on different coasts - Nakamura lives in San Francisco, Huston in suburban Long Island - they crisscrossed America to exploit windows in their collaborators' schedules." White People included a sequel to the hit "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This)" from 1999's So…How's Your Girl?
Grand Wizard Theodore: Just trying to take it to another level.
DJ Jazzy Jeff: That's what keeps the music new and keeps it fresh.
Grand Wizard Theodore: I just feel good that like, like a lot of rock bands are like recognizing the culture.
DJ Jazzy Jeff: Rock helped influence hip hop, hip hop helped influence the world. Listen Yo / it's like a triple-staged darkness / listen and drift Every muscle in your skin starts to shake and shift You can hate the gift / but my phrases daze your clique Spray your face when I spit / I mean it You're just too conceited / repeatin' and repeatin' You're a thugged-out gangsta pimp 'til you believe it It seems like there's too much Pac / we don't need it I'm cool on your heat / you can keep it It's not a big secret / this is a game you can't win You're singin' the same thing, but we're bringin' the answer Just / close your eyes and pretend again That your skin isn't as thin as the skin you're in (bitch) Gimme a second just to spell it out So / nobody can twist what I'm talkin' about I don't / have to fake anything I feel Because / we both know every word is real So / gimme a second just to spell it out So / nobody can twist what I'm talkin' about I don't / have to fake anything I feel Because / we both know every word is real Right about now / the funk soul brother Right about now / the funk soul brother (Handsome Boys) Right about now / the funk soul brother Right about now / the funk soul brother I got the skills of titanium / straight to the cranium Try to play me and we can go to war like Iranians A deep cat / I speak rap / as long as the beat phat My shit'll be off the meat rack Lord Finesse / don't harass the guards With the four-bars / they'll piss on, like, half your squad So they're savage / I ain't gettin' bashed I don't harass if you niggas playin' Russian Roulette with automatics See / on the street, I'm top of the rank Three words / when I get the dice, stop the bank Bet against me / you'll get your cash Leavin' my street team all for nothin' but ass-whoopin's Hard-hitters / (Handsome Boys) / the large niggas The type that sports chicks on the arm like John Ritter The bomb, nigga / been stabbin' the third Better play Jehovah Witness / just spread the word / (spread the word) The sky opens wide / to swallow me again Once I am inside / I'm lost and can't pretend These pictures in my mind / are not a part of me These memories hold me tight / 'til I can hardly breathe (Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe) (Breathe) / I can hardly breathe (Breathe, breathe, breathe, breath) (Breathe) / I can hardly stop the memories Nothing I can say or do will take away what I've been through What you were is what I've come to be Nothing you can say to me will take away these memories What you were is what I've come to be Ahh... But making that choice is kind of like, 'Well, do we take the Rolls Royce or the Bentley today.' The only question we asked ourselves in the studio was, 'Would I want to get dressed to this song? ' And if it's good, it's like making love with mirrors on the ceiling.You can't beat it." About the track with Linkin Park, Nakamura said, "We've been fortunate enough to work with both the people who originated a lot of stuff in hip-hop and some of the guys who have perfected it.About the nature of the project, Nakamura says, "I think music in general is pretty humorless.People can sing about being in love, being in lust, happy, sad, angry -- so why isn't it OK to sing about being silly?
