I suppose DOOM is still exiled in England, like in Key to the Kuffs, relying on his British ‘cousin’ to help him out.

Of course a reference to DOOM’s passion for smoking weed, likening the smell of it to the smell of manure. (There’s an urban myth that cows are the biggest natural producers of ozone-eating methane.)

The lead single off of his album Graduation, and Kanye’s first genuine street anthem. Although it is a song that deals with the standard rap braggadocio of having a lot of money, it has some elements of lyrical genius as well, aptly described on the about section as the crown jewel of Graduation.

Lou’s heard about his girl’s promiscuity. The original lyrics, on the Velvet Underground version, were:

I’ve been told baby you’ve been bold
With Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to Thursday
To Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod

According to Wikipedia (otherwise unsourced), Lou Reed said about these lyrics:

Jesus. Best left forgotten. Obviously, I didn’t want to use real names yet. I probably wanted to make sure I wasn’t using a name that really meant something to me.

Reference to Chubb Rock’s classic Don’t Drink the Milk, and to the school lunch room. Metaphorically, a reference to the things that institutions try to teach you.

Don’t drink the milk, it’s spoiled
The blood and stuff in it make it stink it’s why it’s boiled
JJ DOOM, GMO

Hi dudethebagman. Your suggestion was probably downvoted because it is unclear what you mean by it. If you provide a piece of trivia that DOOM changed the lyrics in another version of this song, please provide a link to that version.
Also, if you haven’t already, please read the Contributor Guidelines, and try to be nice.

Can you find a source of this? This interview not necessarily contradicts, but makes this annotation a bit implausible.

Hahaha

A word from the moderator

I understand you guys want to make this an infinituple entendre, but at least try to keep it plausible!

Hahaha, ‘Produced by Ezra Pound’. Genius!

Remember this is rapgenius and not some musty old literature department. Also I’d suggest change your name to Masta_Mark. Keep it gangsta! (Just kidding. But I see no harm in a little profanity.)

Great history lesson. Now how does this tie in with the song?

Ok, but how does Weehawken, NJ tie into the song?
