I’m not trying to diss – sometimes the most awkward, failed rhymes stick in your head for a long time BECAUSE they’re annoying.
On the other hand, sometimes really "technical, lyrical" rappers can fit 20 rhymes in 2 bars and you have forgotten all 20 in 5 seconds later – because you’re too busy trying to concentrate on his NEXT 2 bars.
Anyway, on with the show:
1 – Me never eat from the tree with the apple/
I’d rather have a Snapple.
I live in the sun/
But you shrivel up like a raiSUN.
Bobby Seale said, “Please make it rough, bro.”/
When god give the word, me herd like the buffalo.
– – ENEMY
For some reason ENEMY has most of the boner lines from the whole LETHAL INJECTION album!
Also he makes the drug, “Crack, uh…” rhyme with the ethnic group “cracker.”
And makes Mohammad rhyme with vomit. . . .
2 – Everywhere I go, I se several/
Brothers with she-deverils.
– CAVE BITCH
3 – (you act like ) Mr. Big/
But in reality, you’re shorter than a midge
–TRUE TO THE GAME
Seriously, Cube? Big and Midge???
4 – Yo turn him over with a spatula/
Now we got Kentucky Fried Cracker/
– WWRONG NIGGA TO FUCK WITH
5 – Just because you got a badge/
You think Ice Cube is gonna wave the white .. . .flad-ge.
– AINT NEVER GONNA GET IT
6 – Mr. Law had to hit me in the jaw/
Because I called them faggots/
With guns and badg-ets????
– WHO GOT THE CAMERA
It seems like anything involving the police is enough to make Ice Cube pull a rhyme boner.
7 – Get my gun and Put an end to the devil/
So get a fuckin’ shovel!
–HORNY LIL DEVIL
8 – He makes superhero rhyme with Ferrigno.
When I bring the noise/
From here to Illinois/
Motherfuckers love it when I do what it do-esss
– JACK IN THE BOX
It might be considered poor sportsmanship to pick on recent-era Cube, but fuck it. This was such a "Wha? Huh?" moment.
9 – Ice Cube coming at you at a crazy pitch /
And the statue of liberty ain’t nothing but a lazy bitch/
She won’t spread her crack for the black/
And yet you’ll call it racial/
If we try to rape the hoe/
– – THE PREDATOR
This was a trifecta: a rhyme that didn’t work, hating on Whitey, plus making gang-rape a metaphor for liberation. He just tripled his offense-productivity.
10 – we like to roam/
Through yo’ muthafuckin’ home/
like a comb/
and find the money that’s gone/
– ASK ABOUT ME
This is like what? OK, you’re doing a home invasion, like in CAN’T TRUST ‘EM or AMERIKKKA’S MOST WANTED. But. . . roam through your home like a comb? Not WITH a comb (fine-toothed or otherwise) but LIKE a comb? LIke how combs normally roam through homes, in packs or singly? Huh? And find the money that’s gone? What? Did the brush already jack it?
BONUS: this one isn’t good or bad, it’s just baffling:
