Artie captures niggas in frame like a Kodak camera.
Artie’s skill can’t be taught, he was born with it
Once people piece together his composition(thesis) they get burned from the hot fire he’s spitting.
Art and his crew constantly study rap like it’s a science. The constant practice makes them spit smarter lyrics.
Art likes to rhyme to reach new levels and split your mind with his lyricism.
People(cats) try to trace where their style comes from but while from Cali, they take inspiration from all over the nation. No coast matters to them. It’s all hip-hop.
The original hook to “Whirlwind Thru Cities” by Afu-Ra.
Sampled from Afu-Ra verses in “Mental Stamina” by Jeru Da Damaja
Artie defeats anyone(i.e. “dropping them”) as they step up to him whether they have a gun or not.
Clever wordplay with El saying he’s teaching your main chick how to give him head. They do it for so long, their knees are getting some training too
