The sparks in the brain chamber he refers to are the firing of synapses, the wires, so to speak, or your brain which carry thoughts through your brain and to your body.

Position on wall: J 12
One of the most instantly recognizable rappers of all time and an integral part of the G funk movement in west coast, Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg, came into popularity by appearing on features for the already prominent producer Dr dre. He was well recieved right off the bat, and his debut album, Doggystyle, is still considered a classic to this day. His subject matter typically followed the standard formula of he day, violence, weed, and women, but snoops uniquely laid back flow and delivery set him apart, as did his canine motifs.

He has several cousins who are also in the rap game, including lil half dead, warren g, and the late Nate Dogg. A former crips gang member, snoop credits a change in heart and direction in his music and attitude to his grief at Nate Dogg’s death, saying,“I felt the call of rasta”. Subsequently, he released a full reggae album under a new moniker, snoop lion, and later a funk album under the name snoopzilla.

Nervous as he is about this encounter, and slightly taken aback by her use of foreign language, sage responds in English, but the more mundane language lacks the romantic connotations of the french, even though the wording was likely very similar.

So two things are happening here. She is proposing a toast, and they are lifting their glasses, at the bar, to toast to their last drink. She has made a proposition to him, whispered in french, a famously romantic language. Upon hearing this he was charmed, and aroused, and so his spirits were lifted as well, making this a subtle double entendre. The sexual tensions that have laced the whole of this song come to a head here.

Many people create false personas, complex masks to protect their fragile, true selves from the harsh world, and to keep people from seeing their flaws. The woman sage is rapping about has such a mask, but it is imperfect, and he can see that there is something a little off about her.

Satan, the ultimate deceiver, convinced eve to partake of the forbidden fruit while disguised as a serpent. This, among other things, has made serpents symbols of evil and deception throughout history. Benefit here uses this to imply dark secrets hidden behind the shining exterior of our political system.

Here benefit compares the political parties and associations with acting guilds, referring to the notorious corruption existing in very nearly every level of american government. With all the lying, false smiles, and fronting in politics, this is an apt comparison.
And here’s our leading man now…

"This place is a pagan prison" (K-Rino – Grand Deception) | pending

paganism was a belief system worshiping nature, and the god of nature, pan the faun, and was used as a by word for all unchristian worship after the rise of the church, demonized because of pan’s goatlike features, as the goat is associated with Satan in Christianity.

"And pay homage to pagan gods when we say the days of the ..." (K-Rino – Grand Deception) | accepted

He uses the term pagan as a blanket term both here and throughout the song for any god or divine figure outside of christ and the father, so when he refers to pagan gods in this line, the reference is to the norse gods listed, because to him they still qualify as pagan.

"No one knows the actual date, that's why sometimes you se..." (K-Rino – Grand Deception) | accepted

Actually,the use of x mas goes back far into hystory, with early versions of the term dated to 1100 bc. In greek, the first letter of christ it x. In addition, an x stylized to look like a fish by early christians as sort of a code. Buildings marked with fish were secret meeting places, the signfigance being that the greek spelling of the latin word for fish, icthys, is an acronym standing for jesus christ, god’s sun, savior.

"Pushin more weight than Nautilus" (E-40 – Sprinkle Me) | pending

I am pretty sure this line is pushin more weight than atlas, who was the titan charged with holding up the heavens for all eternity for his part in rebellion against the gods.

As a habitual womanizer, wayne finds it hard to adjust his behavior to suit his feelings for this woman, which are much stronger than usual for him.Hense I don’t really know how to handle this shit.

"So I thank him everyday for my achievements" (Lil Wayne – Love Me or Hate Me) | accepted

Lil wayne has numerous references to his faith throughout his music, including this song, as well as the songs Amen,No love, she will, and many others. The exact branch of christianity is from my research into him as a person. Knowledge if a person’s history and life can lend perspective to an annotation. I don’t see a problem here

I find it interesting as this line has been memetically attached to drake by people who mock him for his apparent sensitivity.

the song in the video in this youtube link is get down by Nas, not lil wayne.

Therefore, its a lot smarter for him, with his background and appearance, to market his raps to the trap focused mainstream, which is what he does.

"That twenty centuries of stony sleep / Were vexed to nigh..." (William Butler Yeats – The Second Coming) | accepted

Yeats was vehemently not a christian, so in my mind I do not believe he actually relates the second coming to christ, but instead places its birth in proximity to his as a way of inferring that it shall devour the newborn messiah, and in so doing assert itself as the true and natural binding ideal between man and the almighty, a position traditionally held by christ as the son of god and a human woman.
