  • Rappers repeating themselves

    Just wondering,but why do quite a few rappers repeat lines from an old track in a newer one,or even more than once on the same album?Bizarre used the "butterfly to the ground"line on Attack of the Weirdos and Blow My Buzz.I have also noticed Snoop Dogg,among others do this.I was listening to Doggystyle the other day and noticed quite a few lines which are either repeated on a different track in the album or repeated many years later on a different record(one line is said years later on the Dre 2001 album).And how many times has Snoop said"gangsta shit"in the exact same tone throughout his career?And Tupac uses an entire same verse in Changes and I wonder if Heaven has a Ghetto(is that the real name of it-dont have the album its on).Or did the producers just take that line directly out of IWIHHAG and mix the beat of Changes around it?


    Just curious but why do they do it?Is it just a quick solution when they cant think of anything?

    And let's start it like this son, rollin with this one
    And that one, pullin out gats for fun"

    i think they use it as a motto, u know, like saying the same shit in more songs like a trademark

    i also noticed that with 2Pac


    haha

      i think that extra verse may have been added to 'changes' after tupac died (as it was never released until greatest hits), but i could be wrong.

                If you listen well you'll also notice that Eminem likes to make references to Vanilla Ice... Can't tell you exactly which songs, let's just say it's definately been more than once or twice....

                  word, and if u listen to shady records music u will realize that the amout of background efects they use is alot more then any other rapper's do, especially now with tony yayo always singing over in the background

                      First of all, rappers repeating themselves is universal. I can't even mark the date it first started, but certainly by the time gangsta rap arrived it was common practice. Keep in mind that a lot of the 2Pac songs you guys mentioned are unreleased songs. He liked to record several versions of the same song, and put the one he liked on his album. So "I'm Gettin' Money" was a rejected version of "St8 Ballin'." Even so, he often repeated himself even on commercial as did most of the Death Row artists. But I never saw that as a weakness, just a Death Row trademark. Eminem does it too, although keep in mind that mostly what he does is he recycles shit from his freestyles. Kuniva's "Fight Music" verse contained lines from "Fuck Battlin," but remember that was an unreleased track. In fact, a lot of lines from the "Underground EP" have been recylced.

                      And don't even get me started on copying Snoop Dogg. For some reason, there's this rule that it's wrong to bite unless you're biting Snoop. Ja Rule, Jay Z, D12, Beanie Sigel, they've all used Snoop's lines like "Hey, it's not biting. It's Snoop!"
                      "The world is changing and there are new opportunities for those who are ready to join forces with those who are stronger and more experienced" -Lucky Luciano (1897-1962)

                        all of pac's music that has been released since he died is just un-released material so u can't count that against him as for as repeating himself, but all rappers do repeat themselves especially snoop i think he spells his name atleast 3 times a verse. peace

                          well if the verse was hot then chances are it will be hot again. maybe to also pay attribute to someone like tupac or something.

                            yeah, sometimes it's cool, like a trademark, xzibit does it every now and then, and he talks in the third person quite a bit..i guess a few rappers do.

                            but repeating it several times or using the same verse or something is whack. its like when they put a shit rhyme just cos they couldnt make another word rhyme with it.

                            and yeah, in general hip hop is repeating itself as well.
                            You'll read anything won't you?
