There’s a personal anecdote that I could add but am not prepared to share with the world. Just ponder this line for now and maybe you’ll get it.

An issue with the film industry shoving the conspiracy theories and government cynicism down our throats is that we become so used to the concept of it that the idea of it actually occurring becomes laughable and too easily dismissed.

Selling drugs helps to perpetuate the incarceration system, giving the police a reason to arrest you, symbolized by shackles, an old-school version of handcuffs.

Handcuffs are rather round in shape where they go about your wrist and circumference is the perimeter of a circle. This is also a metaphor for the cyclical pattern of prisons.

This is paraphrasing the Kenny Rogers song “The Gambler”:

You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run

With just this excerpt, Oddisee expresses a need for knowing how to navigate through situations. It’s as if he’s gambling with his life everyday in the music business, so he has to know how to avoid dangers.

D'shon claims to be heavenly and angelic, walking like a God among men on Earth, making him supreme.

The messiah is supposed to be the savior of the human race. Some believe Jesus Christ was the messiah.

Notice D'shon’s use of the plural version of the word, adding to his implication of falsehood of these “prophets.” D'shon’s holiness shatters the myths of their teachings. He speaks the truth and defiles the lies.

Many of the houses of the Seven Kingdoms have Valyrian Steel swords that are passed down father-to-son. They are almost a second sigil of a house, a great symbol of pride. The sword of House Stark is Ice. It is an enormous greatsword. Valyrian Steel swords were made from a special smithing technique that has been forgotten over the ages. Such swords are lighter and sharper than any other.

When Tywin of House Lannister, a house without a Valyrian blade, has Ice melted down after Ned’s death, the sword has enough steel to create one-handed swords, showing its massive size, but also a transition of power.

YC is finally speaking from his inner-self, straightforward. This is a call for us to help him along the way, the anthem for the Gods Negus Krew. He recognizes the importance of understanding and human contact, that is is necessary in order to live, so he is willing to go to any length for it.

It’s interesting that this comes off almost like he is imprisoned within himself.

This outro seems to be a justification from one African-American to another of one of the greatest atrocities in history, the slave triangle trade, which brought Africans across the Atlantic to America.

When no longer taking this for its comical value, this shows looking on bright side of life, seeing a potential gain from such a great loss. Unfortunately, the man is wrong, for the kings and queens of Africa were selling the slaves, not boarding the ships, and the black body of America is certainly not united as a tribe, but full of violence.

perhaps you meant it sounds like the singular of that, not the plural

please don’t use so much space with quotes, just hyperlink it with a link to the line.

This youtube link doesn’t work anymore, but the formatting looks unusual so I’m just going to leave the link to a still-up video:

"I have a gun the size of a black hole" (System of a Down – Shame on a Nigga) | accepted

leave a statistic about the size of black holes and identify the literary device (hyperbole). Also, brush up your wording so that it comes off stronger. Maybe change the picture to Dirty Harry’s magnum or something to add to the effect, though your current picture works as well since it looks like a hole/barrel. Get rid of the .380 part.

We should probably adjust this for the recent de-mods
