But her brains being washed by an actor
And every real man that tries to approach
Come the closer he comes, he gets dissed like a roach
She Watch Channel Zero?! by Public Enemy

The actors on television paint unrealistic representations of the perfect man. Because of this, any man that tries to approach a woman that has been brainwashed by TV romances is bound to fail. We can’t live up to the fairytale romances we see everyday of our lives.

Chuck D. is referring to his girl spending all of her time watching daytime TV soap operas. Although “Casablanca” is a romance, it’s also a great movie. I seriously doubt Chuck D, regards this old classic — with its witty dialogue, powerful performances and lasting message of courage and sacrifice in the face of evil — as “garbage.”

The blunted mice in the trap Chum by Earl Sweatshirt

Odd Future recorded all their early music at DJ Syd tha Kyd’s house studio, which they lovingly nicknamed “The Trap.”

He’s referencing OF in the early days. Mice are small, not seen, & quiet. Back when they were still in The Trap they were mice to the music world. You rarely saw them & their music compared to others were silent because no one ever heard them.

Lastly, he creates an inverted set of logic with mice and traps. The trap is supposed to catch mice, rather the mice have the trap; defeating the purpose of the trap.

There’s a really complex wordplay here, because his delivery sounds like “the blood admires the track.” The two lines before that suggest that Tyler likes his brother and he likes how he raps.

It might be an allusion to John Steinbeck’s novel and film Of Mice And Men. This book was banned because of its vulgarity. As well it tells the story of two drifters, migrant workers. They have a sort of brotherly love but aren’t brothers and look out for each other. They all are mice in a trap because they have love bigger than them that they can kill with their hands and be killed by.

Of Mice and Men got its title from Robert Burns’s poem “To A Mouse,” written in Scots dialect.

The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft agley.

Translation: the best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry.

And weed was a thing that when I first tried
Was once a blue moon, to once a blue sky
... I Hope. by BittahProphet

His weed use went from once in a blue moon, which means rarely does it happen, to Once in a blue sky which is pretty damn common!

We are all human
Not less than
What Shall We Be Called by Poetri

For a large portion of American history, African Americans were considered 3/5 of a person in order to keep the power, especially voting power, in the hands of whites. This lead to a number of issues, most importantly being a lack of fair representation in the political system.

They pray to the money and prey on the green. Screen by Jason D. Morris 1

They are consumed by profit and worship it, however that worship of it leads to aggressive business practices. People do the best to strip each other of their money in order to get more for themselves.

GREED is one of the “Seven Deadly Sins.” I remember memorizing the list during the 1950s in the Baltimore Catechism.Some things never change, they just get re-named. Saw a book in a library in 2000 entitled: When the Addiction is Money.

In their hearts lighting fires, kindling naughty desires
Turning women into criers, treat them like they’re just for hires
A Machiavellian Muse by CHRZA 1

This man is only concerned with lust. He speaks sweet nothings to them in order to sway them but regards them as temporary flings. He breaks hearts in the process of his selfish quest for physical pleasure.

You know it well; these are the insignias of Olympia Poet is a Murderer by Jason D. Morris 2

For most of man’s existence we have been a subject under god. We know of the gods well enough to spot their presence in our lives and in our cultures, however because of this knowledge we are trying to replicate it. We are trying to become Gods in a sense and we know enough to realize we are doing it, but choose to ignore the fact we are.
