Best Verse Ever — Take It In Blood

April 23, 2008

For my inaguaral post here at MyBassRocks I thought I would introduce my weekly “Best Verse Ever” post. There is no order to these verses that I will be posting, although I do have a strong urge to make “best of” lists whenever possible so don’t count that out in the future. These will just be some of my favs. In honor of the new Nas track that dropped today, “Be A N-word Too” (yawn…), I thought I’d do a Nas verse. This one is off of his sophmore album It Was Written. It pretty much speaks for itself. Typical Nas style braggadocia (I mean who else was watching broadcast television from a car in 1997?) But the scenes he paints here are so vivid. I can still picture where I was when I first heard some of the lines. Here it is with the audio…

Yo; I never brag how real I keep it, cause it’s the best secret
I rock a vest, prestigious, Cuban link flooded Jesus
in a Lex watchin Kathie Lee and Regis
My actions are one with the seasons
A tech squeezin – executioner, winter time I rock a fur
Mega popular, center of attraction
Climaxin, my bitches they be laughin
They high from sniffin coke off a twenty-cent Andrew Jackson
City lights spark a New York night
Rossi and Martini sippin, Sergio Tachinni flippin mad pies
low price, I blow dice and throw em
Forty-five by my scrotum, manifest the “Do or Die” slogan
My niggaz roll in ten M3’s
Twenty Gods poppin wheelies on Kawasaki’s
Hip-Hop’s got me on some ol’, sprayin shots like a drumroll
Blankin out and never miscount the shells my gun hold
I don’t stunt, I regulate
Henny and Sprite, I seperate, watchin crab niggaz marinate
I’m all about techs and good jooks and sex
Israelite books, holdin government names from Ness
MC’s are crawlin out, every hole in the slum
You be aight like blood money in a pimp’s cum

My apologies for the grossness at the end of that verse…


Take it in Blood 2 (alternative verses)
