Rap BATTLE: VOTE FOR WEEK 3

1.) D&D’s June Bug

”Song Cry Pt. 2″

Verse One

Dear Tressa, you would always help me cook food
Even though I’d yell at you when I was in a bad mood
We was together since the towers fell down
I felt helpless watchin’ the smoke risin’ from the city that never dies
You took my hand, told me it’d be okay
That night in my bed, we had the best damn sex
You did anything for me, even clipped my fingernails
Rubbed my back as I coughed hard from chugging your homemade fruit punch.
You spotted a roach in my A.P.T. you went berserk so we hopped on our S.U.V.
And we drove to the CVS, bought a roach spray so we could be A-Okay
You washed my clothes, so I said “Thank you”
I never knew this lil phrase would put a big smile on you
This aint a love letter
Just want the whole world to learn from my mistakes I cheated on her
This is the 3rd summer that I’m gon spend without her
This is gon be the coldest summer that I’m gon spend without her, Dear Tressa.

Verse Two

Dear Hip-Hop, how could you be so kind to me?
At times you get ferocious but you never put your back to me
A Tribe Called Quest to the Roots and Big
Wu-Tang never left, taught me how to get “Cream”
”Simple” was the SHIT! But now it’s like “Life’s a Bitch”
So we get high, but that’s just a temporary thing
Hustle was permanent, just peep the dirt on my Timbs
Walked through the snow, puddles and gutter, slushes and stones, dirt or concrete
Then I thought I heard Big screamin’ “BABY BABYYY!!”
It wasn’t just a baby to me, the music is the baby for me
Just like a father determined to die for his baby
Even when Tressa wasn’t there, Hip-Hop was there for me
Just like a hustler determined to die for his stacks
I vowed at the stand that I’d die for this
So I want the whole world to know that I’ll die for this.
Tressa loved it too, but I’ve lived it dawg
Now my last name is Hop, just like yours dawg.

2.) Nathan Lyles

Verse One

If the whole World was listenin’ the mission then would be to be conditionin’ my brain to explain things against the men.The same men that contend, on a battle field and rattle steel at each other. Don’t care if it’s they brother.
My apologies to the World and to my family, cause both are living victim to the sins of humanity. Now, can it be…that the whole World is paying attention? I’m layin’ an inch &/ a half away from the answer. Placed in a cancer-ous situation.People recycle life, & keep it in rotation. Patience/ was a gift but this is it. The Earth/ is listening and so I tell her just how much she’s worth. Silence takes away my breath, but not because I’m mic-less.Rather though, because the whole World shall know she’s priceless. Write this right down & see the lies.And know that if the Whole world was listenin‘, she’d cry.

Verse Two

After hearing my apologies the World is gonna’ probably retaliate and make it so that we can feel the robbery
that is taking place every single night & day. But we are unprepared. Not gonna’ see it right away. The fruits of our labor have enslaved us and it made us lazy. Crazy, maybe this is really what it means/ to reap what you sow, & so we try to grow some green. Ain’t talkin’ bout the pastures, I’m talkin’ bout the cash just sit back & listen like the whole World is doing. We try to heat the kitchen, but the whole world ain’t going. If the whole World was listening then this is what it heard. Humans ain’t been doing what they said. Then what occurs
… is the worst ‘cause it’s Earth versus Man. So tell me what’s the plan we have to fight against a Planet?
… I thought so.
Lot’s a people gettin’ frantic!If the whole World WAS listening then I would panic!

3.) R.J.

What Would I Say?…

I think about it on my way back home, all alone, nobody else in the back seat
These windy city streets, I hear another voice speak
In my shy state of mind, it bring different characters
Personalities wit opinions that aint mines
So the conversation start, “Use ya heart when you start to rap
Soul on the paper so you aint takin it back later
Regardless if they hate ya, niggaz do cuz you aint talkin bout
24s, hoes, and you aint soundin like you from the South”
Mainstream, same things my father might mention
Its hard thinkin bout him wit hospital visions
Still aint get over his death yet
I think if Ima die the same on a death bed, then voice #2 says
“You might as well kill yaself, I gaurantee nobody help
Ya mama dont care…to her you wasnt never there
This rap shit, so called fans think you a fuckin lie
Remember how them people disappeared after ya daddy died”

…As I, light up a black
Wonder if these facts
Or fiction, or maybe Im, missin a factor
Or leavin out somethin that bring happiness afterwards
Got raped by two of my cousins at a younger age
Pissed on at a bathroom stall brought waterfalls to my face
But I figure if Im alive that should be good enough
A reason to stop believin in this depression
Voice #2 like “Thats just somethin you cant block”
Kinda shocked to find that voice #3 agrees
Then he proceeds, “Ya girl never loved you the way you lovin her
Dick wasnt big enough for strokes when you was fuckin her
Plus you know you live too far for you to check on her
You know that niggaz callin her, stalkin her, textin her”
To you, if people love me or not
Not that important of a subject…so fuck it

—————————-

4.) Trie

What would I say if I had the whole world listenin’

Verse One

I’d say fuck you muthafucka, past present and future
For causin’ me fatal wounds top surgeons cannot suture
For producin’ ghetto children top teachers cannot tutor
For hit and run daddies that are worthless and not suitors
Fuck you for ever existing at all
For being nothing but a place wherein Satan could fall
For my cousin ridin’ in fear in a piece of shit car with no rims
So he don’t draw no bad attention just to get killed for his Tims
Fuck you for your irony – I hate drugs and pollution
But I sell crack to get a car cuz it’s my only solution
If I don’t jack I won’t get far cuz I can’t live without food
Homeless at fifteen I made it do whut it do
My Mama don’t love me. Neither does God above me
You made me so cold hearted I flinch when my girl hug me
Fuck you for my fate and my inability to duck it
Cuz we all just black crabs in a bucket sayin’ fuck it

(Chorus x2)
I don’t give a fuck if you listen or not
I’ma scream fuck you with all that I got
I’ma keep hustlin’ so I stay alive
I’ma scream fuck you til the day that I die

Verse Two

Subject to verbal contusions and mental intrusions
I learn about wars won do to nuclear fusion
Constant confusion with no infusion of knowledge
A thousand ghetto monkeys wit typewriters tryna get into college
Look around and see just what you’ve produced
I say fuck your delusions as I chunk up the deuce
We can’t make it livin’ in you if we don’t try to get over
That’s why I understand Massa mo’ and mo’ as I get older
What the fuck I’ma do wit a kid!
What the fuck I’ma do wit a wife!
What the fuck I’ma do wit my life!
What the fuck am I doin’ tonight?
Sellin’ crack like what I’m doin’ is right
Fuck you world! Where you at? I’m pursuin’ a fight!
I got nothin’ to live for man I’m just doin’ my dirt
And when I die I hope my crew will put this dude on a shirt

—————————-

5.) MEGA MILZ

If The World Was Listening, What Would I say?

Verse One

Thank you for the opportunity, Ladies and Gentlemen
But I have things to bring to your attention that’s unsettlin’
In our hoods there’s the drug peddlin’ and street corner meddlin’
People dying without insurance and they can’t afford the medicine
We have to face these elements on a daily basis
Dodgin bullets and so called cops who are really crazy racists
Living conditions are poor and inadequate
Projects are rat infested and roach inhabited
Hopefully I can become an active advocate
To show the talents of the hood and establish it
But white folks think we thugged out savages
And all they look at are SAT score averages
But they forget that suburban schools are fully equipped and legit
While education in the hood is constipated – It ain’t shit
Conservatives are tryin to dash our great hopes
And they got the nerve to have hip hop as the scapegoat.

Verse Two

Hopefully the world is listening so don’t beg for my pardon
It seems that the heart of the world has hardened and it’s disheartenin’
There was da next Martin Luther King proclaiming to “keep the peace”
Until he realized, to survive he needed to keep a piece
In the Middle East, people gettin’ killed daily
Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, and Israelis
And it’s crazy- as the rich just cruise in their new Maserati
A child discovers da burned remains of his father’s body
Suicide bombings are everyday in Iraq – 30 bodies a pop
But we’ve become so numb, there’s not a single teardrop
It’s a shock that people fail to understand
Like AIDS and genocide is destroying the Motherland
And as we pollute and the ozone is gettin’ destroyed
People are worried about which players are takin’ steroids
And George W. Bush goes about HIS war like he errorless
It seems to me that HE’s the biggest terrorist.

—————————-

6.) Byrne

Verse One

If I had the chance to address the world as a whole
I’d tell everyone that I lived life to surpass my suggested role
I’m the tadpole that swallowed the shark whole
With a heart full of coal and a excessively bold soul
I chew on emcee’s and spit em’ out like Skoal
Addressing my enemies and doling out pain
My flow can show you the light like a church window pane
Forget fame id rather live life in the slow lane
With my hand on the wheel next to my girl as the sun hits our faces
I’m still alive in the CHI so I’m thanking God for his graces
Cause in most cases within my city
Kids die before they learn how to tie their shoe laces
I hope you are listening to me world
I hope you haven’t already tuned me out
Cause I’m not scared to deliver this verse while I scream and shout
You can’t avoid me world your gonna have to take the scenic route

Verse Two

If I had the chance to address the world as a whole
I’d get on a podium clutching a megaphone
Speaking with a strong and commanding tone
Confessing my sins catching my tears plastic bins
Confronting my demons masked in evil grins
Embracing God, my family, and my closest friends
And as the flame that is my life begins to dim
I realize that soon my soul will be at peace
No more struggling in these city streets
No more sluts, drug dealers, and police
As I lay on my back I’m approached by a priest
He opens his Bible and reads me my last rights
My mother and father tightly grasp my hand
Of the baby that they made that has grown to a man
So goodbye world and everything in it
Just remember as long you have life live it/

—————————-

7.) Desert Es

Verse One

I envite you to witness this young Phenom in action
watch these words paint vivid pictures of reaction
to growing up under the nigga umbrella over and over
Luck I doubt that
I really didnt know what I was in over
My head
buried my face in palms
read the great scriptures of faith
John, Revalations and Psalms
I can stand here and give you a bunch of hoopla to get attention
beat it over your head just like Jada
like the rest not to mention
I was birth with a gift never considered this a curse
Cause as much overtime I put into this Hip hop ya boy flow got worst
In the sense I refuse to be a gimmick
I wont sell out
You know how all these cats become D- Boys and profess they clout
Im one hundred percent of every word presented to the world
Young boy lost in societies grip for the more righteous fruitful whirl
This rolla is a coasta swerving thru all of lifes bends
So programmed to chase love, life and and forget my friends

Verse Two

Now that the first verse was erected on the whim I love to spit
you see alot has changed in this reinvented hip hop
alot more bullshit
a picture perfect concept never felt so pure in notion
To catch the worlds attention in the mist of all this commotion
One stack of college ruled paper
twenty two number 2 pencils later
Im still unknown to the world no matter what Ive written on paper
You see this is some deep souls searching millions of letters erased
but what I represent is a million miles far from false nor can it be replaced
Constructed word patterns overlap the clap
release the sickness this is more that rap
coceived under the sign of the Ram
I eighties baby plus one I know who I am
A direct descendent of middle eastern Pharohs and kings
Even the Gods and Princess hand cuffed in the bing
Theodosia lead em
Jahovah raised em outta the sand
Forseen before the birth of Yao Ming
E’s was birthed a man…………

—————————-

9.) P.H.I.L.T.H.Y.

If You Had The Whole World Listening, What Would You Say?

Verse One

I am the child with the blood of kings and queens
But the life you live is like what I’ve seen in dreams
You wouldn’t understand all the pain that this thing called life just seems to bring
To me
I have no father my mother was a rape victim
The man who did it well he had AIDS in him
So now my bloods like snakes venom
I need it but its killing me on the inside
But I’m not here for your pity party
Oh yeah ya’ll the people that pity hardly
Cuz my face you cant seem to handle
Cuz when its seen on the screen you just change the channel
Click and then you think its an unfortunate event that I’m an Orphan
I’m only 8 and I’m tryna keep my sanity
I thought we were put on this earth to be a family

Verse Two

I know its apparent that I have no parents
But why must you act as if I’m transparent
Yes it’s the invisible children
And your neglect has partially killed them
Just because we cant afford the treatment
Doesn’t mean that we deserve this treatment
You’ve turned the volume down can you hear us speaking
were still alive can you hear us breathing
you can still do something way before it is time for the grieving
So please open your minds and hearts
Don’t pronounce us dead way before are lives can start
I just want a chance to make a change and learn
You got time what’s your choice it remains your turn
I ain’t choose this life but I’m a live it
Remember life is a right not a privelage

—————————-

9.) Trek

Yall wanna kno what I’ll say to tha world if they were listenin

I’ve always felt I was a mishap no way to escap dat
Feelin of no beginnin where I’m comin where I’m goin
Realize what I see now I know wats more important
Clock status every night to feed my children every mornin
Keep secrets from tha people that I wish I never kept
When I think about my father man I wish he never left
And it’s somethin on my chest that I feel I can’t forget
And it’s somethin on me heavy that I feel I’ll never lift
I’m a survivor, I’ve seen both tha battles and tha wars
Often times I’ve tried to win a gunfight wit a sword
Understand that my Lord got me set upon a course
And everytime I see tha strenght I can rely upon tha source
But I’m all about my hustle mane to overcome tha struggle mane
Profits stretchin pockets like I’m workin out of muscle mane
Ain’t worried bout no trouble mane always carry a couple mane
Fury in my heart and security round my buckle mane.

I think I got yall attention even more now but I ain’t finished stay tuned in…

I’ve always felt I was a menace to society
Can’t even walk around my city good without a nigga eyein me
Tryna keep myself controlled but niggaz steady tryin me
Tryna tell em’ bout my goals but dey act like dey blind to see
On tha block hustlin from sun down to sun up
Watchin for my P.O. slangin sacks outta foam cups
It’s a shame I can’t even leave tha house without my heat
Cuz I might be another brother murdered in these streets
But I’m a hustler I den seen dem hundreds and dem G’s
No teflon on my chest cuz ain’t no bullets after me
Gotta shake the evil spirits off before they capture me
People say dat Trek ain’t gon make it dats just blasphemy
But I’m gon pursue my dreams mane, it ain’t bout tha cream mane
I ain’t gotta pull no fronts cuz music is my thing mane
Don’t be about tha bling mane jus go and chase tha green mane
And i’m gon push it to tha top until i’m crowned tha king mane.

—————————-

10.) nEminem

if the whole world would listen what would i say?
Id say fuck the world, this contest is nonsense anyway
I listened to the world and look where it got me
Went to church, stayed in school but still work in the lobby
Bought a house with things then somebody robbed it
Told the wife id stop this so the second time I shot them,
And got thrown in the can as I don’t live in texas
Got sued for damages, the thief left in a lexus
I’m suspecting, this could be an inside job
Baby baby that’s just not a courtroom smile,
Meanwhile, in jail, I heard my wifes fucking the milkman
the cousin of the thief, this was a smooth as silk plan
for 5cents an hour, I burned my hand making license plates
dropped the soap in the shower, now my sorry ass is fightin rape
Waiting, 4 years, nothing to say cause I’m hating
I was an altar boy, now your listening to satan

Out now, and words are speaking more than actions
Afgans for bodyguards and a 44 I’m packing
MC’s I shoot for sport, the competitions lacking
Hacking the head off the wife, she’s in saran wrap wrapping
Buried in the desert, the fools will never find me
i got 11 atomic bombs, straight out of Nagasaki
A neighbourhood near u is where i’m gonna drop it
Sally and Johnny are frying,. now we’re all gonna vomit,
Backpackers, no clues, no flows, I’m retorting
All your dreams, laying with hoes, to much coke u been snorting
I don’t know what’s in ur pack, your going home, its so sad
Here’s an autographed grenade, for ray ray and his dad
And I don’t need an ad, but this mag isn’t bad,
better than the sellout source, I heard they moved to baghdad
See when u think the worlds listening, they never really listening
Let me stress I’m the best, and this is my new christening
Baby just maybe, this is not Eminem
Thin and crazy my name is Neminem
