Lyra**ist Lounge

Artist: Typical Cats
Album: Typical Cats
Song: Cliche

(qwel)
See Qwels way past math to drop techs on future prospects
Never got toys like Christmas in the projects
Your rock sets is play this dude braggin' you aint famous
Tighter than vacuums and gets looser than faggots anus
Doper emcees none existent like RuPaul's clit is
Cant tell if your dick or pussy like topless infants
Couldn't spit sick 'ish kid lickin' your cold sores
And leave you scared to drop shit like school stalls with no doors
Wonder how this f***er whispers thunder sounds
Your fly like crippled Ostrich's I scare heads underground
And break it down like midget B-boys screamin' mathematics
When style switches faster than faggots rockin' their thongs backwards
Ask if I'll kill your career with one verse
You couldn't beat me to death if I let you jump first
He's a pussy on the low don't f*** with Philippine cuisine
Deeper than Mexican philosophy and Chevy submarines
What's he mean I think he means your whack beat
In fact I'm harder to catch than hailin' taxis with black peeps
Get in your a** so fast shit scabs when the cops come
Guilty as charged blowin' minds like Shanno(?) with shotguns
Hold nuts like padded rooms whack raps cant plead insanity
Just cause I stand over you don't mean you understand me
Man please I'm way to f***ing dope to be this humble
And knock you out the frame like Christmas pictures with your drunk uncle
Like f*** Qwel and his whole team those irrelevant flows
I'm diggin' in the crates and these (?????) on telephone poles
Hope I might choke your as whack as you white jokes
The only cat to drop lines like Samoans on tight ropes
Motherf***ers can't even respond what can he say
Cause after the battle he's more like "yo I ain't wanna win anyway "
And Qwel ain't shit like I ain't lose he ain't even rappin' right
Damn right I'm an a**hole you pussies ain't even half as tight
To and fro fluid flow you know I'm splittin' speakers
Try pressin' promos on boomerangs them shits is cheaper

*Sample*
(scratch) Punch Lines (scratch) Now'n days it's the ways of the underground
If I don't stay on the rest(?) tell me who the hell will
When it really comes down to it two kids
*Sample*

Before braggin' how big my dick was this Bic-smudged note pad
Was dad to whip his a** and change his whole fad
Now its proud to be the loudest so what you damage mics
Battle cats claim to be deep just cause they seen Titanic twice
You can and might say something worthwhile you'd rather be wild
Huge dick liar's I'd rather teach with freestyles
Entertainment got played quick no thanks bitch dick
f*** my kids don't need your playground education content not sayin' shit
Master the art of momma jokes while flippin' used beats
Ill teach your kids about god they'll kill you when you sleep
Don't be role models be honest using loose leaf loosely
The same cats that's hatin' Puffy they be chasin' lucci
You wasn't preachin' beat before tellin' lies in the street
Keep it rough neck I'll flip subjects success mean getting sleep
Don't take it out on us cause the love wasn't there
Hip-Hop will show you love but the world doesn't care
About you big dick sick shit lunatic drug abuse kid
I've got some herb and words to give now lets make some music

AG Wire / Sugar Hill Gang To Release 2009 Album
« on: October 09, 2008, 12:03:11 AM »
October 6th, 2008 | Author: ------

As the grandfathers of Hip Hop, the veteran rappers have earned their respect and even talk politics

The Sugar Hill Gang has announced that they are planning to release an album early next year.

The legendary group and pioneers of rap paved the way for Hip Hop with their popular 15 minute hit, "Rapper's Delight." The 1979 single, recorded over Chic's "Good Times," launched Hip Hop into the commercial and cultural phenomenon that it is today.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the single, group members Big Bank Hank, Master Gee, and Wonder Mike plan to put out an album next year. They have even confirmed that they will be collaborating with the UK's own Dizzee Rascal.

The Sugar Hill Gang has not confirmed a date nor a title for their next album.

AG Wire / Sadat X Talks New Digital Album, Brand Nubian Reunion
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:57:56 PM »
October 7th, 2008 | Author: Danielle Harling

Well-known as one-third of the group Brand Nubian, New York rapper Sadat X is digitally releasing his fifth solo album, entitled Generation X, today.

On Generation X, fans of Sadat X can expect "grown man Hip Hop." And according to Sadat X the album is, "Something that people my age that still love Hip Hop could appreciate."

Released on Affluent Records, Generation X features production by Will Tell and includes the current single "Never".

As far as releasing his album digitally, Sadat X says, "I would like to see it stay simple but times change so I guess you gotta change with the times."

Although Generation X is being released digitally this month, physical copies of the album will be made available in stores in December.

For the eager Brand Nubian fans, a comeback from the trio is already in the works.

AG Wire / Fans Vote Eminem Best Rapper Alive
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:54:33 PM »
October 8th, 2008 | Author: Slava Kuperstein

Eminem has been voted the greatest rapper alive by fans and readers of VIBE Magazine and its website.

Although Em hasn't released a full solo album since 2004's Encore, his fan base has shown that it remains tremendously loyal.

Vibe broke the competition down tournament style, placing a slew of emcees into four brackets: the Notorious BIG bracket, the 2Pac bracket, the Pimp C bracket, and the Big Punisher bracket. The number one seeds in each bracket were, respectively, Jay-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne and Andre 3000.

After voting each week from July 21 to August 4, the final were decided. Eminem and Jay-Z made it to the final four, as expected. Somewhat unexpected was Game's defeat of Andre 3000 in order to make it to the semifinals, and Ludacris' defeat of Lil Wayne in order to claim the same spot.

Eminem, who had beaten Nas by a slim margin to claim a final four spot, and Jay-Z made short work of Ludacris and Game, respectively. The two legends faced off in votes, and after over 920,000 votes, Em beat out Hov, retaining 61 percent of the votes to Hov's 39 percent.

"Its obviously an honor to have won the fans' support by being voted the Best Rapper Alive, said Eminem to the fans on Vibe.com. I don't think that there is any one rapper that is simply the best though.  Everyone who was in consideration and many others are the best at certain things, and at what they do.  But since VIBE's offering the distinction, hell yeah I'll accept!"

AG Wire / Current top hip hop sellers
« on: October 08, 2008, 11:45:03 PM »
Current top-sellers (sellouts?) in hip hop

T.I.  shocks many, not only going gold within one week, but taking the number one spot by a sound margin. Paper Trail beat out #2 debut Jennifer Hudson by over 300,000 units, as Atlantic Records' flagship artist reminds fans that while he's not performing quite as strongly as Lil Wayne's first week on the charts, he's well beyond perceived competition Young Jeezy, The Game and Nas, in commercial viability.

Rank   Artist                Album               This Week   Est. Total
1   T.I.                 Paper Trail   568,383                569,361
3   Robin Thicke   Something Else   136,944                137,204
12   Young Jeezy   Recession   38,754                489,675
14   Lil Wayne                Tha Carter III   34,553                 2,523,278
18   The Game   LAX                28,105                476,020

Murs' presidential campaign did not lead the Los Angeles rapper to the top. However, Murray found his strongest debut in his career, cracking the Top 50. Murs For President entered the charts at #43, making the release Warner Brothers' best Hip Hop showing since Talib Kweli's Ear Drum The release just edged out DJ Khaled's We Global.
With less than a month on the charts, LL Cool J may soon be leaving the Top 100. The icon emcee's Exit 13 found its place at #88 this past week, at just under 75,000 units sold.

Rank   Artist       Album                        This Week         Est. Total

The obscenity-crusading attorney, who launched a campaign to ban 2 Live Crew's As Nasty as They Wanna Be in 1989, has been banished from the law profession in his home state.

The Florida Supreme Court this week revoked Jack Thompson's license to practice law, finding that he made numerous false statements in court, according to news reports.

Miami's 2 Live Crew were hardly alone in Thompson's long list of targets. The 57-year-old attorney, an evangelist, also went after shock-jock Howard Stern, pronography and the video game industry. He filed lawsuits against the maker of the Grand Theft Auto series, alleging that the video game "mentally molest[ed] minors for money," according to a report on Gamespot.com.

Fighting to block sales of rap music that Thompson thought to be obscene put him on the map.

When then-U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno and the Florida state prosecutor declined to prosecute Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell, owner of Luke Skyywalker Records, the label of 2 Live Crew, Thompson was able to get local officials to block sales of the album, as well as that of N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton.

In 1991, Thompson took on N.W.A.'s album Efil4zaggin and in 1992, pressured Time Warner against releasing Ice-T's album Cop Killer. Time Warner eventually succumbed and released Ice-T and his band Body Count from a contract.

General Discussion / Barack Obama bumps Kanye And Jay On The iPod
« on: October 01, 2008, 02:21:22 PM »
September 29th, 2008 | Author: Danielle Harling

Although some critics have blasted him for hit, Obama is still backing his appreciation of Hip Hop.

"I enjoy it, but these days I don't have the time to listen to it all the time," Obama shared with Sway. "I'm a little older than Hip Hop culture. I was there at the beginning, but I was already getting older...What I've appreciated, watching this Hip Hop generation, is to see how entrepreneurial they've been. In the past, musicians oftentimes were commodities.
They were just shuffled around. Obviously, they did well, but they didn't have the vision to say, 'I'm going to build a business. I'm going to build my own studio. I'm going to create my own production operations.' I think they're a lot more sophisticated than in the past, and that is a wonderful thing."

Some of the Hip-Hop artists in rotation on Senator Obama's iPod include Kanye West and Jay-Z.

Politics / Re: Mbeki Resignation?
« on: September 23, 2008, 02:10:47 PM »
People are dissatisfied with the government. And people are willing to put their faith/vote into any party that'll ensure that their basic requirements are met, and that their standards of living will be decent, whoever that may be.

If any of the other parties will sincerely offer a change of this sort we will vote for them. The colour of their leaders skin should not be an issue. We have this irrational fear that if we vote for the DA we'll be flung back into the era of apartheid....

BUT!!!! You should start thinking a bit deeper when an old lady in the train, who lived through the worst phases of apartheid says that she was happier back then than she is now.

So please do not vote according the people's skin colour, vote according to the sincerety of  their will to ensure a BETTER LIFE FOR ALL... for real.

General Discussion / Re: Meaning of black consciousness for today's youth
« on: September 17, 2008, 01:48:21 PM »
I agree with all the arguments criticising Black Consciousness as a movement but we still need to appreciate the vision/ideal that that makes it necessary, not as a finger to point and chide youth, but as a step to free ourselves from a mental prison that is an aftermath of our history.

I would encourage any 'new approach' but i'm sceptical about people who work within a system to change it.

"The problem with working in a system is that it's not you that eventually changes the system, it is the system that changes you" - Immortal Technique...

By acknowledging the advertising industry as the more formiddable force, we should not fall into the trap of accepting it as the only force.

The problem with accepting an unwanted system is that you eventually stop being critical and stop searching for alternatives, but constantly battle the challenges/a**ociated problems.

So we end up like a ship in a storm, we ride every wave and think about the immediate survival...which is of course necessary...
but we should never forget that the ultimate and intial goal was to reach a destination.

General Discussion / Meaning of black consciousness for today's youth
« on: September 15, 2008, 09:25:51 PM »
In a time where we see the youth of young suburbia (of all races) buying into the commercialisation of our revolutionary ideas, ideals and comrades...one has to ask the question, how do we fight against the processes that are making mere commodities of our spilt blood and fallen heroes.

In a time when it costs R100 to get your latest in Revolutionary gear...where you can purchase a t-shirt with your favourite revolutionary thinker. Che Guevara, Steve Biko, Malcom X, Chris Hani...are among the many choices in today's essential accessories...

So we need to ask ourselves whether there is a real place for us to still further our ideas of social-change in a society that has saturated itself with a pseudo-revolutionary infatuation that was described as Caco as "over the counter-culture"

Sadly this conversation is sparked by the memory of the one Steve Biko, who's untimely death we're reminded about this time of year.

Steve Biko who spoke of...

"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed."-Steven Bantu Biko , 1971

"Being black is not a matter of pigmentation - being black is a reflection of a mental attitude." - Steven Bantu Biko

So Tha Headwarmaz have been battling with the question... What is the role of black consciousness in South African youth today.
