you guys are over looking, it the songs on SUPREME CLIENTELE, the majority of that album is abstract, ghost says he was just repeating what the beat said to him, and beats don't make sense, but once you do that it sounds nice over the track, so he was just fuckin with words. It's like one of those paintings you see that don't make no sense or is just a bunch of scribbles but real art niggas call it a masterpiece

Actually, Ghost has made it very clear in interviews and such that he has no idea what most of these lines mean, they just came to him at that time and he thought they sounded fly so he wrote them down. Anyone who tries to say Ghost is reaching a never-before-seen level of depth on this album is really reaching for an excuse for Ghost's nonsense lyrics, which are that and nothing more. Nonsense. They sound incredible, but much of this album can't be deciphered no matter how hard you try.


^^^ i agree with u man
nutmeg u have no idea what he is saying .
just a few lines thats it

sc was an abstract album
I catch certain bits and pieces
Like ravioli bags
Meaning a fat bags of weed probably 20s
