I can tolerate weird accents and off-beat flows, but not those boooring or straight up retarded lyrics. Like 'The Mask' which starts with a nice chorus but then....

[WYCLEF]
I used to work at Burger King. A king taking orders.
Punching my clock. Now I'm wanted by the manager.
Soupin me up sayin "Your a nice worker,"
"How would you like a quarter raise, move up the register"
"Large in charge, but cha gotta be my spy,
Come back and tell me who's baggin my fries,
Getting high on company time."
Hell no sirree, wrong M.C.
Why should I be a spy, when you spying me,
And you see whatcha thought ya saw but never seen.
Ya missed ya last move, Checkmate! Crown me King,
Hold my 22 pistol whipped him in his face.
Hired now I'm fired, sold bud now I'm wired,
Eyes pitch red but da beat bop my head
Hit the streets for relief, I bumped into the Feds,
I got kidnapped they took me to D.C.,
Have me working underground building missiles for World War III.


Dude goes from working at Burger King to pistolwhippin' his boss? Why was that necessary? Is it normal to have your gun at work? Is that what african american do? That's a bad image that black people don't deserve. And then those last three lines? WTF is wrong with Wyclef? I truly believe he's retarded. It's a shame, cuz this song is really dope otherwise..

i can't really blame wera being that he has the language and culture gap to deal with. but naw the verse is dope and its a metaphor.

pras verse was saved by "i guess i been listenin to too much biggies smalls"

his solo work...
The Carnival was beyond dope and in classic status.

Wa listening to Capital Punishment the other day and no doubt Bis wrote that. I def think Bis would of got on that if he could. Back then he was ready to jump on a track with all the big guns.

As for clef. That dude shouldnt get on any mic again after the madness he did on that Haiti track. WTF were the noises he was making.

You missed the entire point of that verse. You should really listen again.

The only reason the album "The Score" by The Fugees is seen as classic is because of

#1.) The BEATS
#2.) Lauryn Hill

Any time Wyclef Jean and Pras appear i feel like jacking off with sandpaper. They are nonsense and need to die for ruining such hot beats!!!!!!!! And whoever said "The Carnival" album was hot needs to go to the doctor and check his ears because it's fucking garbage.

the chorus of the mask IS a metaphor

I really really doubt Wyclef's verse is a metaphor. In this form, as a story, it's retarded.

It's actually a pretty good verse. I think you're just looking at it the wrong way. Yea it's a corny, but humorous story, yet it has a deeper meaning.

And his verse on "Ready or Not" is REALLY dope. Like seriously, if you haven't heard it then you should really look into it.

"Hell no sirree; wrong emcee; why should I be a spy when you're spying me?" is the dopest thing Wyclef spit in his entire career; it is like his "Dead in the middle of Little Italy..."
