"Check out my beaver, baby blue glock in the safe
Seems Darthy and the God and get ski roll weight
We hold a belt son, that's my word
Spot a rapper run him down, throw him out in the third, yo check it
I think like the man behind a register
Evergreen smokin estates, rhyme and power made me treasurer
With third down, six to go, flash his strobe lights
I'm open, RZA hit me off lovely and I love him
With root beer thoughts, here's a tennis court for your birthday
The Babyface of rap, politic with Sade
Avengin eagle crooks, rock the W in Spiegel books
Anheiser Busch kings came through, and stopped your whole jooks
Spitfire Kangols, watch Tony train a gang of hoes
Painful like hearin the news, like when your man go
Ends blow, windy at times watch the room sheisty girl
Love to sit out this song, now watch your water break"

I love Ghostface...but sometimes I just can't follow a verse with him.
Can someone break down what he is saying on It'z Yourz?
Especially~

Spiegel is a clothing catalog.

it doesn't really make full sense unless you're ghost, its just a collection of abstract thoughts that sounds dope on record, having said that, its basically just colorful braggadocio

Avengin eagle crooks, rock the W in Spiegel books
(they're vengeful crooks on some literary shit)
Anheiser Busch kings came through, and stopped your whole jooks
(they are drunken but still shut down your operations)
Spitfire Kangols, watch Tony train a gang of hoes
(his headwear is fly, and hes screwed a lotta chicks)
Painful like hearin the news, like when your man go
(its painful for the chicks, like hearing that a friend died)
Ends blow, windy at times watch the room sheisty girl
(Tony had a good time but is suspicious of the girl)
Love the shit out this song, now watch her water break
(the song impressed her so much tat she went into labor?)

that last line is a little tricky

It's called stream of consciousness, both Ghostface and U God use the literary device in their verses to varying effects.

Yo thanks Dominus...
Strange though as I feel I understand U-God nearly all the time!!!
But Ghostface baffles me for real...
Must be something to do with his voice?

PEACE

I always thought he said "check out my viva" viva is Spanish for life

Its not just "abstract thoughts" or "stream of conciousness", people use that too much. He's just making cultural references. hes rapping about whats around him and his enviroment, about things that make up our lives but most people ignore. He's an observationist. Its like when seinfeld makes you laugh with talking about just regular thigns we all do on a daily. But he's not just doing that, its his flow that brings it all together. Read off that verse without knowing the song its impossible to know how fly that sounds when he says it. It doesnt even sound like a rap verse, it hardly rhymes even. It also has a meaning. It had a personal meaning when he wrote it. It may not have a meaning now.

he broke it down in an interview one time
"my rhymes is like ziti strawberry kiwi"
favorite food and drink flavor. alot of his rhymes have personal meaning.

i thought the "w in speigel books" was about the wu wear clothing line and dreams of having it blow to the point of being in speigel"


"watch her water break" she got so wet that it was like her water broke.

actually it is "stream of conciousness" but starks is just sick with his.

def my fav wu member, it was rae until ironman dropped, i been rollin with starks ever since.

really, he's been holdin the whole team down for about 8 yrs now. i mean who else been consistantly making quality records in the 21st century?
