    Default Lyrics you Misinterpret

    lol


    this one had me thinking that baby seals got extra sharp dangerous teeth or something so i rocked with it until i recently found out what was being said - and i laughed my fuckin nose off too -


    remember Raes verse on Shame Ona Nigga ?

    i thought that he said at the end of it, "Remember i got teeth like a Baby Seal"

    i swear i thought that's what he said - for years - i grew greys in my beard thinking that shit.

    then the internet got hot and every one was on it - pictures all over the got dam place then i saw this pic








    and was like "oh, that's why he said that shit, back in the days, niggas was snappin on his teeth in the steps and shit"


    i just found out like last year Sun said, "Remember i got deep like navy seal"

    When I was 12 and started listening to hip hop, nobody else in Australia was listening to it. And Afro-American slang wasn't cool and used all over the place like it is now. So I had no fucking idea what anything meant. I'll run through a few quick ones now but I could surely name so much ridiculous shit I used to misinterpret, or misunderstand.

    - In '8 Ball' by NWA when Eazy says "we make hardcore jams", I actually thought he was talking about jam that you eat. Like NWA makes hardcore strawberry jam.

    - When I got 'Cuban Linx' and they were talking about wallabies, I thought they meant the iconic Aussie mammals, and I was all like why the fuck do they keep talking about wallabies?

    Fuck. I've gotta go. I hope to return to this thread.

    I remember hearing jay-z saying he dreamed about 'licking off' his mama on d'evils. I thought he was a weirdo for a little while.

    Btw I actually used to think Raekwon said "I got deep like a baby seal". It's funny how you think somebody says a certain lyric one way and then without even hearing the song again you realise what they're actually say. I often do that with songs from my childhood that I haven't heard since then. I get them in my head and remember what I used to think the person was saying and then realise what they actually would have been saying.

    I used to write silly gangsta rap lyrics back when I was 12 or so, and I remember I used to use the word "wack" like it was positive. Like I'd say "my lyrics are wack" thinking that it meant they were good lolz.

    Man this thread is really making it evident how fucked my memory is. There is sooooo much stupid misinterpreted shit from my early hip hop days and it's just not coming to me.

    I used to think Gza said "striking niggas with amazing dicks" and then I couldn't figure out the last bit, when he says "striking niggas where the Mason Dixon line cross" in 'Guillotine'. How's a young Aussie supposed to know any better? lolz

    Fuck, hopefully some more stupid shit will come to me later.

    Reminds me of that story a few months back of that secretary who misheard the Fresh Prince lyrics on some guy's answerphone and caused all schools in the district to be locked down

    GURU - ex girl to the next girl:

    When I was with her no trust, just fights
    Just the he-say-she-say and the neighborhood highlights
    But I got my new girl or as I say my baby doll
    But I'm still gettin' crazy calls, my ex-girl's got balls


    Thought he found out his girl literally had balls (TRANNY) and then dumped her.

    when sons started saying "That's Dope", i thought they were saying "That's Dult" -

    i had in mind that it had something to do with being an adult or something

    It took me years to realise this wasn't a song by some women singing about Stena Line.
