View Full Version : MR.5ft destroys Buckshot, in my opinion

Right, Black Moon.

Consists of legendary BCC leader Buckshot and the lesser-known, lesser-heralded MC, less appreciated 5ft (aka 'General Feva').

Now I've been listening to their sophomore album War Zone alot recently, great album, and I've found that, after thorough analysis

Flipping Hell 5ft is better than Buckshot.

Buckshot may have the better voice, flow and business sense (plus the sucka don't get locked up for selling drugs) but all his bloody verses sound the same (at least around this album's time - '99).

For Buckshot it's more often than not simply a matter of:

'Buck [something something]
all you ducks [MCs] [something something]
what the f*ck'

it gets grating after a while.

In comparison, here's a nice 5ft verse:

Just be a little something (Uh-Huh)
For those who do not know me
Like I'm a 23 Chicago Bull
You can not hold me
It's as if, tryin to grab a n*gga that's smothered on fire
Hot every night, elevation be my sole desire
See my, will and determination is out of this atmosphere
For 25 years, I've sheaded the sweat, blood, plus the tears
Makin me get to a man that walk this Earth with no fear
Here come the 5, bringin the bomb introduction
With my team of construction, yes we allways bring destruction
To the enemy (enemy) enemy (enemy) ENEMY
Whether of not you're ready, I'm aimin at you steady
Takin you ignorant n*ggas strictly out of existence
For instance, you didn't listen, when I said I was not missin
I, have to much to achieve, better believe
I got more than a dutch hiddin up my sleeve
Why oh why, n*ggas always want to try
When they know deep in they heart they not ready to die
Allah, blessed me to have a daughter
Before I walked the path of war that's wetter than water

against some generic Buckshot verse:

Fire one, Buckshot, comin with a gun
Fire two, Buckshot, blast that too
Actin like you solid witcha plastic prue
Schemin on my n*gga L.U., who the hell are you
What? you think I'mma talk and flap
F*ck the chit-chat, man I should've of been put this in your back
You ain't have to act like that
But you did, now I'm bout to aim for ya wig
Word up my n*gga, see whatever they want, they get
Want me to flip? I flip
The rhymes I whip, hence back to Brooklyn in a flash
Thinkin about the weed and the stash, in the ash tray
Man I got ass on the way
Shit I got a call from Renee today
She got that bombay, I'm bout to put her on the block
where the drugs and the thugs stay
Pick up my money and send her on the way
You know what it's like
I f*ck around and smack the chicken in the breast
Chill, you can get wet by the Hennyville spill
Buckshot I still kill
.

Now, I'm not saying I don't like Buckshot, of course he still comes up with spectacular shit like
'Get on my skateboard and do a motherf*ckin' drive-by' :D

He's a pretty solid rapper, possesses a great flow, makes great albums, but like alot of the BCC dudes he's a tad overrated, and it's the beats that mainly keep him buoyant, despite his skills.

And 5ft deserves more shine.

Now if anyone actually reads this and gives a shite, please bless me with your input.

Fair enough, but to me it's seems like 5ft has more passion and is more entertaining, living in the shadow of a relative legend.

I think the same about Phife Dawg and Q-Tip, Phife is like a breath of fresh air after a while of Q-Tip nasal tones, no disrespect.

both Phife Dawg and 5ft are mad underrrated but at the same time they balence out their respective groups
