Video hard to watch like Medusa

from Kanye West (Ft. Common & Talib Kweli) – Get Em High Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In Greek Mythology, Medusa was in fact very beautiful at first, but then lots of shit happened and curses and sins and blahblachablhablah and she became ugly as hell. If you looked at her, you would turn to stone, a fact Common puns on in this line.

This may also be a play on the Versace fashion label’s “Medusa head” logo- Versace makes watches, “watch like Medusa”, get it?
