  • Official theRGS - most slept on "deep" rap song thread -

    What's your favorite deep rap song out there? A song that makes you think, "damn." And nothing commercial, just put up the ones that are slept-on and what people don't talk about enough.

    1 song per person.

    I'll set it off with one of my favorite tracks, from Nas on his last album. 3rd set of verses were ill.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsG2QMHJ-pw
    "America"
    [Intro (Nas talking)]
    Yo, it's like waking up from a bad dream (Americaaa)
    just to figure out you wasn't dreaming in the first place (Nooo...)
    [Verse 1]
    If all I saw was gangsters
    Coming up as a youngster
    Pussy and money the only language I clung to
    Claim to, unrolled myself up to become one
    Ain't ya happy I chose rap? I'm amongst the
    Streets deceiving
    Can't believe my achievements
    Cultural strata
    Persona's that of a non-needer
    Because I don't need nada except for Prada beaver
    For cold winters, tattoos got my summer's sleeveless
    To my G's on the flee from the coppers (coppers)
    Stiff bodies on freeze in funeral parlors (parlors)
    From the slums I come up a phoenix
    Caked up, tryin' to take what I'm eating
    Came up a dismissive kid (kid)
    You lucky if you allowed to witness this
    Savvy mouth
    While hardly a man's man
    Who woulda knew the beach houses and wild parties
    Jezebel's and Stella McCartney's?
    For years, all that
    How could I not be dead?
    This old German
    Said I was a thug with a knotty head
    Looked at my Benz and called that a Nazi sled
    With a face like he wonder where I got my bread
    Probably all these stones he see
    From my shows overseas
    From crime to rhyme
    My story is I'm from the home of the thieves
    [Chorus 1]
    America (America), pay attention
    Wake up (America)
    This is not what you think it is
    America (America), pay attention
    Wake up (America)
    This is not what you think it is
    [Verse 2:]
    Blessed
    The lord is a G, he gotta be
    Who's the God of suckers and snitches?
    The economy
    Lipstick from Marilyn Monroe
    Blew a death kiss to Fidel Castro
    He'd want me to spit this
    Only the strong survive
    Nas bear witness
    The hypocrisy is all I can see
    White cop acquitted for murder
    Black cop cop a plea
    That type of shit make me stop and think
    We in chronic need of a second look of the law books
    And the whole race dichotomy
    Too many rappers, athletes, and actors
    But not enough *****s in NASA
    Who give you the latest dances, trends, and fashion?
    But when it comes to residuals, they look past us
    Woven into the fabric, they can't stand us
    Even in white tee's, blue jeans, and red bandannas
    [Chorus 2]
    America (America) pay attention
    Wake up (America)
    This is not what you think it is
    America (America)
    Pay attention (America)
    This is not what you think it is
    America (America)
    (This is not what you think it is)
    [Verse 3:]
    Assassinations
    Diplomatic relations
    Killed indigenous people
    Built a new nation
    Involuntary labor
    Took a knife split a woman naval
    Took her premature baby
    Let her man see you rape her
    If I could travel to the 1700's
    I'd push a wheelbarrow full of dynamite
    Through your covenant
    Love to sit in on the Senate
    And tell the whole government
    Y'all don't treat women fair
    She read about herself in the bible
    Believing she the reason sin is here
    You played her, with an apron
    Like, "Bring me my dinner, dear."
    She the ****** here
    Ain't we in the free world?
    Death penalty in Texas kill young boys and girls
    Barbarity, I'm in the double-R casualty
    Bugging how I made it out the hood, dazzle me
    How far we really from third world savagery
    When the empire fall, imagine how crazy that'll be

    [Chorus 3]
    America (America, America)
    America (America)
    (This is not what you think it is)
    America (America ohhh)
    This is not what you think it is
    America

                          One of my favorite political related songs...he keeps shit relatively simple, but it sums up things perfectly.
