More of a callback to Protect Ya Neck in which ODB drops this lyric almost word for word.
First line is:
Uncle Tom house niggas do scare me
Second line is:
This is the language of the people ready to hear the truth
I Write The Songs is one of Manilow’s famous hits (although he didn’t write it).
I don’t think he’s talking about handbags. The lyric is:
Through the fully operational hand held toting hmm
The effect of a bullet to the head, following on from the last line gun POW to the dome. Of course he is referring to his rhymes rather than a literal gunshot. See also handheld trigger cuts and acapella spitting shell.
Interesting choice of dialogue. I think RZA intended this to be a comment on Hip Hop in general but ironically it’s exactly what happened to Wu-Tang Clan themselves.
