  • The skies of New York are gray much of the time, due to the heavy population and the pollution and the pollution that sprouts from it.This shade reminds Rae of the heroin he pushes, which varies from brownish, to gray, to white.

  • It might be a stretch, but Rae could also be referring to a Gray Heron bird. Bird being slang for drugs, which have the same color.

Night time rolling with snakes

The dude Rae is talking about was at a rap show shining, showing off his wealth. It was used to be called flossing back in the days.

Last thing you want to do is be in the wrong place shining. Like out of town or a neighborhood not your own. the stick up kids is watching you.

The only thing that U-God has his mind on is the ability to get money, weapons and drugs. The “brothers from the no-lands” portion refers to the pasts of his crew. It doesn’t matter where they come from, as they don’t care or remember.

every time you see some Italians in the movies theres always a bunch of em somewhere in the movie with the top button open and some gold chain on.

John Gottis organization was based on Staten Island, and theres also a large Italian population there, so Raekwon has most likely seen this first hand

"Now I'm black Jesus turn water to wine / And all I had to..." (Rick Ross – The Devil Is A Lie) | pending

The Scripture Jay Z references is found in the Gospel of John chapter 2. In it, when the wine runs out at the wedding in Cana, Jesus changes the water to wine, and saves the host of the wedding celebration the embarrassment of running out of wine. (Perhaps the host was a close relative.) so Jesus performed this miracle before the beginning of His earthly ministry, sort of as a preview to the ability of the power of the Father lying within Him. I say all that to say this: Jay Z likens his experience selling dope to the power Jesus had. Jay Z used his ability in hustling to change his circumstances. Jesus used his ability and power over nature to change those circumstances. And because of Jay Zs success as a hustler, he has as we all know too well, proclaimed and established himself the epitome of a hustler, providing the willing a blueprint they could attempt to follow. Jay Z considers this in itself a miracle. As a Christian, likening oneself to Jesus' equal in power and authority is blasphemous, I do however recognize the artisitc genius in these lines.

Kendrick is that dude! It’s a renassiance of real lyricism!

You need to add Fetti to this list. Originated in the Bay Area used heavily by virtually all Bay Area artists, Mack 10. Fetti is short for confetti

"I hear the souls of the fallen soldiers / Calling for Jeh..." (Sunz of Man – Israeli News) | pending

Triple Entendre! 1st) the Biblical story found in Exodus was that YHWH was weeding out the faithless from the children of Israel as they wandered in the wilderness. He released the snakes (cobras maybe) and Moses stuck out his staff and one of the snakes bit into it. Whosoever that was bitten by the snakes, then looked upon the snake that sunk its teeth into Moses' staff would live. Those that didnt died.

The third meaning is KIng Cobra is a brand of cheap, nasty malt liquor.
It’s sold in hoods everywhere. I drank that stuff for a whole summer and I felt my teeth trying to fall out!

Yo, I don’t have knowledge on this just a comment.

Jay shoulda stayed off this track.

Tryin to ride young dudes fame.

"Like Russian cut VVS's" (Ghostface Killah – Box in Hand) | accepted

VVS is one of the highest grades for a diamond. If a man is selling you a VVS, 1). It’s gonna cost you, 2)it is virtually flawless. Even cuts, all proportionate, no flecks of carbon, colorless.l

"What's today's mathematics" (AZ – The Essence) | accepted

The mathematics refers to the corresponding number in the Supreme numerology. For instance, I would be like, what’s the math? And based on the day, you would be obligated to recite the lesson (knowledge for the day).

A friend of mine grew up 5% and said if you didn’t get the Mathematics right word for word, the older “gods would whip that tail pretty good”.

"Punk faggot niggas stealing my light" (Ghostface Killah – Apollo Kids) | accepted

Not to correct but elaborate. Wu-Tang Clan especially Rae Ghost and RZA have always tried to call the mainstreams attention away from Bad Boy Mase Puff. That’s what The Biters skit, ODB crashing the Grammys, the skit on Wu Tang Forever was all about. In the mid nineties it was all about “east vs. west” but it wasn’t east and west it was Tupac vs. Biggie. And everybody was writing off Wu Tang as if they didn’t exist. Big did some joints that kept the east on the radio but New York hip hop was far from dead.

"Swing the John McEnroe, rap rock'n'roll" (Ghostface Killah – Nutmeg) | accepted

Tennis rackets sort of resemble microphones. McEnroe was considered one of the greatest of his time. As is Ghost.
