OH!
Now we've faced ten thousand haters
Mad, cos I got these pet Alligators
(What else?)
Exotic birds
(What else?)
Big cats
(What else?)
A lot of words, sick raps
Pet Alligators by Flash Bang Grenada (Ft. Busdriver & Nocando)

The last time we heard from Busdriver and Nocando they had 10 Haters, and an album named for such. That number has now jumped from 10, to 10,000 haters, a thousand times more!

This hate is coming from the awesome things Flash Bang owns and are able to do, such as their awesome exotic pets:

As well as their exemplary rapping ability. Those that hate on them are simply jealous of what they’ve got and what they can do.

Repeat the pattern till my heart of gold
Is stained and cracked
Decreased in value
If I pawned it whole
Would I make it back?
I Wish I Was Dead by Kno (Ft. Tonedeff)

Tonedeff has been through many trials and tragedy in his life. These toils have slowly taken a grip on him and each one has left his heart damaged and scarred to such a point that Tonedeff feels his heart and life feel worthless now. He’s began to wonder if he gave his heart away if it would stop this pain and help return normalcy to his life.

There’s pitfalls in my socks, so I walk with caution
Somebody halt the auction! Cause my soul’s on sale, and I thought I lost it

But I ain't Nipsey, I can't Hussle in the West
Cause the South is in my chest, and I don't wanna fly it's nest
Spread your wings by Kno (Ft. Deacon the Villain)

The idea and task of gaining world-wide recognition and acclaim, or even nation-wide for that matter, is a very large and daunting task. But, even if Deacon could do this, he wouldn’t be able to, because the South is where he’s from and a part of who he is. He can’t just go west like Los Angeles based napper Nippsey Hussle, because he would never belong there like he belongs in the South.

Make those that you dine with and reside with
The same lives that you will pine for in silence
Death Is Silent by Kno

Death can never be determined, who it takes and when it takes them can never be predicted or determined. Who it takes and what those taken mean to you bears no impact upon death.

Death is instant, someone who you are close to and care for could be taken away in an instant. Leaving you alone with only feelings of desire and remorse over their passing.

Death is spineless
It will find men that you confide in
And confine them to asylum
Death Is Silent by Kno

Death is a truly destructive force. The impacts of losing someone can be tragic beyond all imagination. Death has the full ability to take those you care about and look to and draw comfort from, and cast them into such despair that they will be forever changed.

Stuck in a plot of stuck on bail Being God by YC The Cynic 1

While this line pertains to the previous lines about prophets, another context can be taken for this line.

Literal slavery existed in America up until the 1860s, before this time and the ratification of The 13th Amendment, millions of African Americans were forced to work on plots of farmland for their masters that owned them.

However, this amendment said nothing of prisoners and slavery would continue to take place up until the 1940s, those in prison were given to free citizens, where they were forced to work for the master they were given, basically recreating slavery. Making the great struggle for the abolishment of slavery nearly worthless.

This unethical imprisonment was also spoken about by YC on the Chaundon song Prosperity:

Land of the free home of the slaves the paradox

Take your pick of any prophet
Where are they now? dead or in jail
Stuck in a box or stuck in a cell
Being God by YC The Cynic 1

Throughout history, those who have tried to bring forth new wisdom or bring new ideas or ways have thought have been met with outrage and resistance. This is because change is often seen as a danger to the conformity that society and the world loves so much.

Take a look at several different “prophets” from throughout history, and the fates of these revolutionary minds:

  • Martin Luther, separated from Catholicism, was originally sought for death for these views.

  • Mahatma Gandhi lead India in it’s fight to remove British rule, assassinated for his movement.

  • Malcolm X, a human rights and religious equality activist, assassinated for his movement and views.

  • Nelson Mandela, leader of the movement to achieve racial equality in South Africa, and was imprisoned for nearly thirty years for his movement.

  • Martin Luther King Jr., leader of the American Civil Rights Movement for racial equality, who was imprisoned several times for his movement and eventually assassinated for it.

The world fears change, and those who seek to change the world are depicted as villains by those who fear this change. Which has resulted in many of these men ending up behind bars, or under soil.

Shit, got bills due, got pipe leaks, got mildew
Gotta keep up being that real dude
You abandoned that but I still do it
Know it Alls by YC The Cynic

In Hip-Hop, so much is put into bragging about one’s wealth, possessions, and etcetera. When in reality, these rappers live lives that are no different than YC’s, who struggles with money and day to day issues like many of us do.

However, YC is unashamed of his situation, and while other rappers stray away from the truth and try to mask it, YC feels no need to put on a false front.
