In the album Enter The 36 Chambers, there is a skit that Raekwon asks Mef, "Where's my Killah tape at?!" A little later in the skit, Ghostface comes through and talks about a guy who got "busted in his head two times."

My question is, Ghostface says something like "Word, i'm 'bout to get my coat to cypher, God." What the hell is a 'coat to cypher?'

Am i even saying it right?! What does he say?! It's driving me crazy!

i think he's saying "imma go get my CULTURE CYPHER"


supreme mathematics...

culture= 4
cypher= 0


but don't ask me about the connection between those numbers...

peace!

According to Chambermusik:

[G] Yo yo, God, word is bond, yo, Shymeek just go bust in his head
Two times God [word to mother]
Real life God, you know Shymeek from fuckin 212 [yeah yeah yea]
The nigga just got bust, niggas in the Black Land, god
Word is bond, came thru God from out of nowhere, God
Word is bond, I'm comin to get my coat to Cypher, god

Where did these numbers come from? culture= 4 & cypher= 0 ?? I thought it was coat to cypher.

Ghostface even says it in a song on his album Supreme Clientele. Something like "The kid grabbed two coat to cyphers..."

bang, i was right !!!


and to those who asked where those numbers come from...

from the supreme mathematics, it's a part of the 5%stuff

just like you got the supreme alphabet, every letter has a meaning, but here the numbers 0-9 represent something: knowledge, wisdom, understanding, ... (freedom, build, culture, born, cypher are a few other)

peace!

Lol, I used to think it was 'killer teeth'.

I was like, why the fuck does Rae want his goddamn teeth back so bad? And why the fuck did Meth have them??

I love that skit. "....is he dead?" "Is he...! The fuck you mean is he fuckin' dead!"

I always knew he was saying culture cypher. What you gotta realize is the Wu-Tang for the most part have speech impediments. Not half as bad as niggaz in the south do, but impediments all the same.

Not to mention New York accents.

it hard to say which killer tape rae got on mind john woo "killer" or gordon liu "master killer"...........

most of the album skits came form woo killer but not all + i remember rza talkin bout that masta killa movie. he said it was their est movie then and they always watch it when stoned ;]

so maybe its the master killer movie that method lost ;]

Sorry to bump this shit but I thought I'd mention something that was bothering me about this skit.

Love the skit, I actually thought the Killa tape was a Masta Killa mixtape but I guess I was wrong.

The thing that bothered me was that Rae was talking down to Meth like he was a little shit, I know he's the youngest but damn.

Also I think it's Meth that says "Is he dead"
Then Ghost starts talking shit to him.

I wish Meth just said
"Shut the fuck up, I'ma drop an album first, stop saying God so much bitch!!!"

its Rae asking for the tape right ?? his album is full of clips from The Killer right ?? aint The Killer Raes favourite flick or something ?? and if it wa the Master Killer flick, wouldn't he ask for the Master Killer tape ?? i reckon Rae was buggin out cos he wanted the video to take the samples from for his album.

i got a question that not really concern the subject.
When GZA says he study mathematics, is he talking about "real" mathematics or supreme mathematics?

if its GZA saying it, my guess is its likely to be both, supreme for spiritual guidance and real mathematics - Gza's a smart dude.

You guys are retarded. 40 cal guns? Nah b. It's definitely 40 oz's...

Ghost even says it again in "Apollo Kids"

"Two culture ciphers, one bag of wet
Heavy rain fucked my kicks up..."


Although urbandictionary.com has the second definition as...

2. culture cypher http://static.urbandictionary.com/thumbsup.gif (javascript:void(0)) 1 thumb up http://static.urbandictionary.com/thumbsdown.gif (javascript:void(0))
New York/ Wu-Tang slang for a cigarette.
Word is bond, I'm comin to get my Culture Cypher, god

Which would make sense considering the bag of wet part (which is dust for you ignorant cats). But that said, I don't think GFK would be 'comin to get his cigarette.'

Oh man, smh at all the ignorance being showed in this thread.

CULTURE CIPHER = IS A GUN, 40 GLOCC, 40 CAL WHATEVER, IT JUST MEANS GUN. Ask anyone from NY. IT DONT MEAN 40oz/CIGARETTES AND ALL THIS OTHER SHIT

Ghost was comin thru to get his guns, for revenge, protection, i dunno, but he was comin to get his guns.

to me he say CULTURE CYPHER i didn't know how to break it down but i always knew he was talking about gun analyses what his saying

some one he knows got kill he tells his brothas about it and went to get his gun "IM READY TO GET BUSSY" the other guy "SO WE OUT"

if it was 40oz this wouldn't make sense
somebody gets kill and he went to his brothas to drink 40oz? NO! he wants to get back at them so he went for back up and his tools
