Man, I go crazy on the beat -- I go Nimrod

from Lil Wayne – Run This Town Lyrics on Rap Genius


Nimrod — Noah’s great-grandson in the Bible — was a great king, credited by the Yahwist with the creation of the Tower of Babel and generalized “rebellion against G-d”

Building a huge tower is a crazy thing to do, so to “go Nimrod” is to go crazy (the Tower is credited with fracturing human language, which gives added rap meaning)
