Henny bottles everywhere, smelling like 'yac
Bagging crack, sitting in the kitchen, wearing my mask
Crack Spot Stories by Wu Block (Ft. Ghostface Killah, Jadakiss, Raekwon & Sheek Louch)

Ghost starts out by describing what the crack spot looks like.

There are empty Henny bottles everywhere, Henny is short for Hennesy which is a type of cognac, hence why it smells like “‘Yac”

In the kitchen is where crack dealers cook their crack before selling it. He wears a mask to disguise his face from the fiends and to protect himself from the chemicals.

He’s GhostFace because you don’t know what he looks like when you make a purchase.

Also, he wore a mask for a long time during his career and no one knew what he looked like.

Cause when you're too nice you're underground
That's funny cause Eminem gave me money for not dumbing down
Funkmaster Flex Freestyle by Slaughterhouse

In hip-hop today, there is a divide between “Mainstream” and “Underground” emcees.

A lot of times great emcees won’t be signed because they are too complex and won’t sell easily.

Eminem signed Slaughterhouse to his label Shady Records for a huge sum of money.

Some say it wouldn’t of happened had it not been for Royce Da 5'9’s personal history with Eminem.

I guess it doesn’t matter now though does it?

We flipping on niggas like we Super Dave The Chase Pt. II by A Tribe Called Quest

A reference to the stunt man Super Dave Osborne.

The tribe either flips rhymes, or flips out (loses their tempers) when emcees don’t stay in their lanes

Super Dave would do stunts, and they would often not end how he hoped. Stunt men do a lot of flipping

See the only thing that's badder is the '87 Mattingly
Scratch that, take it back, '011 Apathy
All I Think About by Apathy (Ft. Action Bronson)

Don Mattingly was an American baseball player, and the current Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, he played his 14 season career with the New York Yankees and was a 9 time all-star including the 1987 season which Apathy refers to in this line.

He says the only thing that’s badder (meaning no one has harder bars) which is a play on the word batter. Mattingly' had the nicknames “The Hitman” and “Donnie Baseball” which he earned; boasting a .307 career batting average.

Apathy chose the ‘87 season here because Mattingly hit homeruns in 8 consecutive games this season, which is tied for the all-time record.

the 011' Apathy could compete with Don because he planned on laying down hit, after hit, after hit.

I suppose its up to the indvidual hip hop listener to decide if he delivered

See, I never fit into they quotas Shades by Wale (Ft. Chrisette Michele)

Wale didn’t seem marketable to very many major labels, a quota in terms of the music business would just be a certain criteria needed in order to successfully hype/sell the artist.

He is all about the integrity of the art and wouldn’t compromise to sign a deal

He is now a part of MMG and contrary to what most people think, he believes he is sticking to his guns.

Some don’t like his content change, and some do
