Peace to everyone!

First of all, forgive me for my bad english - it's not my native language.
I try to translate song "Method Man".
This is difficult for me, y'know?

I ask you to help me to translate some moments in first verse, which I can't understand.

I hope on your help!!! ;)))

1) First, intro:

[I'll fuckin
I'll fuckin hang you by your fuckin dick
off a fuckin twelve sto-story building out this motherfucker]

- "twelve sto-story building" - what is it?

2) Then...

[Hey, you, get off my cloud] - why "cloud"?

3) And finally...

[I'm about to blow light me up] - what this mean in other words?

It's all for a while... :)

hey you get off my cloud
i think is a reference to a rolling stones song

12 story building is one with 12 floors

im about to explode, ignite me (metaphor prolly bout weed smoking)

"when I'm about to blow, light me up" is a play on words. For a bomb to explode or blow-up it has to be ignited or lit. At the same time, he is saying he wants you to light his joint (which is a marijuana cigarette incase you didn't know). So, basically, when he says he's about to blow, he means (I think) get pumped up or excited, he needs to be chill, so he's going to smoke some weed.

Oh yeah, that "get off my cloud" is a refference to a rolling stones song. If you didn't know, the rolling stones was a bad in the seventies that was very popular.

get off my cloud may be a reference 2 rollin stones but it also means
"get outta my heaven, don't fuckin bother me - cloud 9? or seventh heaven?"

Else questions... ;)

[Blow like snow when the cold wind's blowin
Zoom, I hit the mic like boom] - why "zoom"?

[Question what exactly is a panty raider] - "panty raider", what is it?

[Ill behaviour savior or major flavor
All of the above oh yeah plus I do so

When he says "Im about to blow light me up" it means he is about to smoke some weed ( In Staten we say "Blow some trees") and he needs a light to get started.

- why "zoom"?

[B]WELL I THINK HE USED ZOOM AS AN ANALOGY. HE SAYS THAT HE HITS THE MIC LIKE BOOM - I THINK HE MEANS LIKE A SONIC BOOM AND TO CREATE A SONIC BOOM YOU HAVE TO BE MOVING REALLY FAST SO HE USED THE WORD ZOOM.

[Question what exactly is a panty raider] - "panty raider", what is it?

A PANTY RAIDER IS SOMEONE WHO GETS A LOT OF FEMALE UNDERWEAR, MEANING HE GETS A LOT OF PUSSY( SORRY FOR BEING SO BLUNT). ALSO, PANTY RAIDING IS SOMETHING DONE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES BY THE GUYS WHO RUN UP IN THE GIRLS DORMS AND GO THROUGH THEIR DRESSERS TO FIND PANTIES.

[Ill behaviour savior or major flavor
All of the above oh yeah plus I do so
Also flam I'm the man call me super] - I understand all word, but do not understand in than sense...

NOT SURE ABOUT THIS PART

He's just basically bragging about himself. He says he has "ill behaviour" and he's the "saviour of major flavour". He also wants to be called super, and that might be because he calls himself the "super sperm" in that song.

I'm not sure if that helped you..

prof zooruka is basically a big fuckin cherryhead
cappa is not at all like ma$e (not that i would think that to be negative anyway) and he has an incredible track record for amazing, free association rhymes that are full of energy
some people dislike his flow, which is ok, but to me he has a classic flow and hes a legend of hip hop
and meth is more consistent?! lmao

brown_dogg! Thanks man! I think that I have understood.

[Make girls rumps like pump and Humpty Hump] - "Humpty Hump" it's Shock G from Digital Underground or not?
If this so that why Method speaks this?

I DON`T agree

cappa is not at all like ma$e (not that i would think that to be negative anyway) and he has an incredible track record for amazing, free association rhymes that are full of energy.

YEP YEP.. what I meant is he makes things happen on a track.. when he guest spots ( mase is the king of this " commercially" cappa "underground") sorry he is like the mase of wu tang clan ( I never said it was a bad thing I think ma$e is ill.. who else had the skills to be so cool with a fine ass siniorita, like mariah on his lap on the "honey remix"!!!!, Shit was " TRUE PIMP " ... don`t look at that as negitive ... also mase like cappa had an o.g flow.. I would like them to do somthing together... anway

he has a classic flow and hes a legend of hip hop



100%



PEACE TO DONNA J BIRD

p.s dont think for a minute that ... I think Ma$e and cappa and in any way shape or form .. the same on the mic..... in skillz.

I like ma$e`s flow and his style, for his laid back approch to shit, especially ladies.. and i must respect his skillz in there own right, but cappa is like a renissance painter (or picasso or salivador dali and shit on the mic son...).. and he paints fables on tracks in the tradition original abstract way.


other rappers is still finger painting !!!

Look man I ain`t gonna sit here and blow smoke up cappa`s ass all day.. all Im going to say is your obviuosly a cappadonna fan.. so to get on here and diss method man is WACK... Calling me a cherry head.. I agreed because i felt i had to say SORRY... But nah F that... Cappadonna has had more help than anyone affiliate next to wu tang, so much so... that he`s considered the "unoffcial" 10th member, so much so... that he has a classic wu tang produced album " that most clan members don`t EVEN HAVE" not even DECK OR U-GOD.., so what, you dissin method man and talk up Cappa... you need to recgonise cappa is well respected in rap circles and by fans ( for real for real), but he ain`t better than method man in consistancy ( thats what i meant)... also like ma$e cappa got more shine and did half the work than most of the other m.c`s.. so thats why i sapt that shit.. not because i think it ... because i always bump cappa, and if you know anything about DOPE cappa, you would know, from my posts, that i listen to his music !!!! ( because we ride caps til we can`t take no more!!!) namsayin.

So to dis meth is wack because No meth equals No Wu tang = most likly no Cappa.. !!!

PEACE


WU MASTA KILLAH

AND

PEACE TO

Method Man said he was involved with several projects and wasn't focused on Tical 0 like he was the others, AND that was was encouraged to use other producers.

firstly I tried to back peddle... like "holding ya shit in" namsayin lol hahah,

Because this all got twisted.. I made those comments in anger NOT IN TRUTH.. thats why i made a million and one posts .. " honestly you should already no this"...


"You can`t just get on here and make throw away statments about people", like ... meth is overated... ( wether or not you actually believe this ! ) ....


Yo, you didn`t like when I called cap mase .... same deal... ( even though they do have many similarities)


Method man or cappadonna are far from overrated, and cappa is extremly far from being mase on the mic... so relax " take it with a grain of salt ".. Offcourse cappa is dope son... anybody who somebody all ready know this !!!

I WISH I NEVER GOT INTO THIS CONVERSATION NOW

o.k here it goes if you don`t understand and add on after this and realise the simple answer to all this is..../ Yes i said some shit, that i didn`t really mean who hasn`t tried to rectify it and fucked up ( the quick sand effect) but if you did nt understand here is the logic behind what i said peace.



what shit like..... cappa is like mase, cappa fell off after 97 (true, but so has everyother wu tang member except gza), and that he sounded like bzar from d12 and shit.....( come on man !! do you reall honestly think i believe that !!) I did say that so... I told you I was upset.., because you was saying " meth overated !!! and if you dis cappa you diss yourself ".. and I fired back saying// cappa ain`t all that ( yes IN CONSISTANCY.. Consistancy, being the key word) you remember !!! don`t front, I believe this, but remember ( this is just my opinion though.. "so don`t believe the HYPE !!!) ...


I said he was like mase because mase could drop ill verses with puff but on the solo he fell over ( Then i said the one difference was that, cappa has a "classic album".. under his belt, "do you even no what that means" >??? ( a classic.... not a decent album ....not dope, no a CLASSIC....) but the principal, to what im saying was that cappa, is the mase of wu tang clan on some " I AIN`T DROPPED ONE SINGLE// AND MADE THIS MONEY BACK" see, cappa for the ffirst few years, ate of the guest spots he was sprayin ( like mase ... or o.k like loxs ( d.block) that type of rapper... ( THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT !!! ) , just "cappadonna" managed to get one classic album where others such as: kissa and mase, both haven`t... ( styles p is better solo) .. also what else is amazing !!!! is that cappa did that whole guest spot peice for "WU TANG CLAN" not some wack troop " who wont live in the barracks" WU TANG CLAN ( doesn`t that say it all) and to top that off... he did the guest spot with the unorthodox flow, and still managed an album ( the other used commercial gimicks ( to a degree) gangsta tales ..sex money murder.. raps and still don`t got that classic title).


Loook man that word don`t get thrown around alot by me or others and this whole board ( if you noticed) all seem to AGREE that the PILLAGE is a CLASSIC.. ( oh dear... I wounder why ?????).. It must be because cappa can`t rap ... hahah lmao seriously have you been on this site long ???

oh ... if you don`t believe me post a " IS THE PILLAGE A CLASSIC" thread and watch all the killah beez swarm.

Oh yeah and if you are super paranoid about what I said... Then you can include, that i said Cappa has tendancy to take his rhyme slang to far ( true he does, (POST 97 ONLY) and this is the reason he fell off.. see on ice cream and maria the listener could relate!!! to what cappa was spitting.. but after 97 he fell off and lost that connection with the fans (Fans related to cappa more than o.g members even !!!)..... also that whole Cab shit... didn`t really help !!!.


The real problem to why none of you are making real cream is because your all splintered... It`s hard to follow each members progress... that why I think the only way Wu is gonna survive is to just do clan albums only.

WU TANG CLAN ( doesn`t that say it all) and to top that off... he did the guest spot with the unorthodox flow,



The only other rappers with similar flows have all failed..
to make albums and 95% of other rappers wouldn`t dare go anywhere near it.. It`s like the way wyclef raps on that shakira song thats abstarct.. he almost falls off to in that track.. but manages to pull it out at the end..., but SEE HOW HARD IT IS ... WYCLEF ONLY COULD SPIT A FEW EFFECTIVE LINES .. NOT BAD BUT SEE WHEN HE SWITCHS TO FROM HUMPTY HUMP TO WHY THE C.I.A WANNA ROCK ME !!! SOUNDS LABOURED.. CAPPA DOES THAT SHIT SILKY SMOOTH... THROWIN DARTS/ MARTIAL ARTS.. LET ME SHINE SON OF SONG TOOK TO LONG.. BACK THROWNING DARTS WITHOUT REMORSE/ DART HOLCAUST.. SLANG BOSS/ REMAIN TOP HIP HOP/ DROP TO YA NEES FOR THESE/ BIG C.D`S/ YOU HEARD IT THROUGH THR GRAVEVINE/ KILLAH BEES!!!!

Rza ( post 97, wack rza i.m.o)

p.sun

ol dirty

holocaust


while they are by no means wack.. it`s just not easy to rap abstractly on the mic for a song let alone for an entire album ... and Cappadonna did that on the PILLAGE and thats why I said it`s the only true wu tang solo worthy of official wu tang solo calssic status ( plus he held that down solo : not many guest spots) Not easy not easy to do at all many have tried but none of it worked " MAYBE THATS WHY HE THAT DON CAPPA TYPE DUDE" Capp corleone


so see cappa is dope ..

Dam kid I had to do alot of explaining for your ass ( no homo) namsayin./

zoom is the sound things make when they go fast

painty raider is a song method man made before wu tang, which was a local hit and people in staten called him panty raider after it..

''the whole damn isle is calling me - P A N T Y R A I D E R''

hes saying hes the man, so call him super - like super man
