Thread: "Method Man"

  1. #1

    Default "Method Man"

    Peace to everyone!

    First of all, forgive me for my bad english - it's not my native language.
    I try to translate song "Method Man".
    This is difficult for me, y'know?

    I ask you to help me to translate some moments in first verse, which I can't understand.

    I hope on your help!!! ))

    1) First, intro:

    [I'll fuckin
    I'll fuckin hang you by your fuckin dick
    off a fuckin twelve sto-story building out this motherfucker]

    - "twelve sto-story building" - what is it?

    2) Then...

    [Hey, you, get off my cloud] - why "cloud"?

    3) And finally...

    [I'm about to blow light me up] - what this mean in other words?

    It's all for a while...

    "when I'm about to blow, light me up" is a play on words. For a bomb to explode or blow-up it has to be ignited or lit. At the same time, he is saying he wants you to light his joint (which is a marijuana cigarette incase you didn't know). So, basically, when he says he's about to blow, he means (I think) get pumped up or excited, he needs to be chill, so he's going to smoke some weed.

    Oh yeah, that "get off my cloud" is a refference to a rolling stones song. If you didn't know, the rolling stones was a bad in the seventies that was very popular.

    When he says "Im about to blow light me up" it means he is about to smoke some weed ( In Staten we say "Blow some trees") and he needs a light to get started.

    WELL I THINK HE USED ZOOM AS AN ANALOGY. HE SAYS THAT HE HITS THE MIC LIKE BOOM - I THINK HE MEANS LIKE A SONIC BOOM AND TO CREATE A SONIC BOOM YOU HAVE TO BE MOVING REALLY FAST SO HE USED THE WORD ZOOM.

    [Question what exactly is a panty raider] - "panty raider", what is it?

    A PANTY RAIDER IS SOMEONE WHO GETS A LOT OF FEMALE UNDERWEAR, MEANING HE GETS A LOT OF PUSSY( SORRY FOR BEING SO BLUNT). ALSO, PANTY RAIDING IS SOMETHING DONE ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES BY THE GUYS WHO RUN UP IN THE GIRLS DORMS AND GO THROUGH THEIR DRESSERS TO FIND PANTIES.

    [Ill behaviour savior or major flavor
    All of the above oh yeah plus I do so
    Also flam I'm the man call me super] - I understand all word, but do not understand in than sense...

    NOT SURE ABOUT THIS PART
    Hope this helps
