    Default GZA on Dashing (Reasons)

    Back when I use to smoke trees I use to listen to music and get lost in it.

    I remember getting high as shit once and listening to this song and I found a deep meaning in GZA's verse.

    Check my theory....

    They couldn't get me, watch me move swiftly
    Broke the unmarked fifty with this cabby who was a gypsy
    He stayed tipsy, said he loved his bills crispy
    Drivin' the streets he kept heat on the night, shifty - He was in a taxi driven by a gypsy and he began telling him a story.

    Quickly, who ring bells like it's twelve on Sunday?
    While the stage catch shells from forceful gunplay
    Mere fact that the track was a fierce counterattack
    All those who couldn't multiply were sent back - At this point I visioned the scene from Malcolm X when he was gunned down on stage many people said the NOI was behind the hit and after his death a lot of followers gave up NOI, or were "sent back".

    No tanks, low rank, soldiers hittin' the heart
    Tainted the heart of an empire, was torn apart
    Brought to a halt from a front full assault - I thought about Roman paganism dying to Christianity and also Christianity waring with Islam during the crusades

    The chemist left the lab with undetermined results
    They saw the swordsman sift electrical volts
    The audience threw nuts with loose screws and bolts
    The archives automatically changed ya stiff vibes
    It was layin' in the zip drive from chest five - Here I think he was talking about Jesus and his miricles and how science can't determine truth always. The archives (scripture) changed from the Old Testament to the New... yet the New Testament is a reflection of the old... it was layin in the zip drive from chest 5 (Torah = first five books of the BIBLE)

    What do ya'll think?

    I think your reading into it too much, but an interesting read non the less.


    BIG L Rest In Peace

    nice view indeed...


    but I don't think the meaning goes that deep...

    peace!
    Shaolin shadowboxin' and the wu-tang swordstyle...
    If what you say is true...
    The shaolin and the wu-tang could be dangerous!
    En garde, I'll let you try my wu-tang style...
