ARE YOU JOKING?
Man, i understand that's your opinion but come on.
"i am so high i could eat a star" ? o rly??
" S**t I Gotta Eat... Yeah, Even Though I Ate
It Ain't My Birthday But I Got My Name On the Cake" Wow, very clever, i mean look at this lyricism
"Tougher than Nigerian hair" ....Lies .....
"Tell the coppers hahahaha you can't catch 'em, you can't stop 'em
I go by them goon rules if you can't beat 'em then you pop 'em
You can't man 'em then you mop 'em,
You can't stand 'em then you drop 'em," Yeah, that's fire.
the thing about wayne is you cant really post his little 1 liners, even though it's what he lives on. if you are going to look at 1 line at a time, you have to, at the very least, look at how it was said. the way wayne puts words/lines together (his flow) is pretty good.
honestly, i agree with harlem heat 100 percent. wayne has great verses and terrible verses. you did a nice job of showing waynes problem...now look at this verse that actually makes sense.
Respect is in the heart.
So thats where i'ma start.
And a lot of heart patients don't make it.
but hey kid
cause you could get through anything if Magic made it.
And that was called recycling
are we reciting
something cause you just like it
so you say it just like it.
Some say its biting
but i say its enlightning
besides Dr. Kanye West is one of the brightest.
And Dr. Swizz can stitch your track up the tightest.
And Dr. Jeezy can fix you back up the nicest.
arthritis in my hand from writing.
But i'ma docter they don't understand my writing.
So i stop writing.
Now i'm like lightning.
And you ain't VINCE Young so don't clash with the Titan.
Fast and exciting.
My Passion is Frighting.
Now let me put some more Vocab in your I.V.
Here take this Vicodin
Like it and love it
and confidence has no budget so pay me no mind i don't walk like i talk it cause i'm running i don't do it cause i done it and i'm in the emergency on it...
God damn It, I lost another one...
i mean, you can find flaws in that verse too...he goes off topic a couple of times, he's boatsful, but hey, that's what wayne does. and like you like cam for putting in his harlem swag, the masses love (or hate) wayne for his cocky swag as well as his simple analogies and catchy (albeit extremely gay, and yes, this is from a wayne fan) singles.
the ability to relate to as many audiences you can is vastly overlooked when it comes to wayne, it's something he shines in.
as for who's version i liked better...i liked the beat...take that back, i liked the sample lol. wayne could have kept his verses, although i liked how he was laid back at first then got hype. another verse from cam, another instruction on how to sell coke. dont get me wrong, i loved cam. i waited a good 2 years for that purple haze album. diplomatic immunity vol 1 was a classic, at least at that time to me. come home with me was great, as well was confessions of fire. but harlem's right. cam's nuts. i think he likes the spotlight more than anything else, he honestly does remind me of starbury.
that skit on diplomatic immunity where they are askin "have you seen juelz, he buggin...he got his hair cut so it's half fade, have braids...walkin around dont call me legal no more"
that's honestly what i think of when i think of cam lol, no offense
also, props to mods for keeping this open
oh, and another thing, do you really wanna compare wayne and cam'ron on other people's beats...i mean, that's kinda where wayne honed his skill lol. he's got ton of tracks where he ripped other people's beats better than they did.
also, this isnt for you, but the carter 1 wasnt wayne's first album...it was his 4th solo album, and 7th album all around. not to mention the countless mixtapes
