    Question Diggin the Lyrics: "Shame on a Nigga" - Part 1

    Peace to all fans of the Wu-Tang Clan!

    Excuse my mediocre English - it's not my native language.

    After a break of 10 years, I have returned to my favorite recording of my teenage years - Enter the Wu-Tang. I could not believe it at first but it sounded as raw and powerful as 10 years ago. That's the definition of classics!

    Anyway, I'd like to bother you a bit on this forum and ask you to help me to dig into the magnificent lyrics. I hardly understood anything when I listened to the tracks when I was a teenager, now I understand more but still - lots of gaps!

    I'll provide my understanding of one of my favorite tracks - "Shame on a Nigga" and ask you to correct me and/or explain what is beyond my understanding.

    Thank you! I hope it's perfectly on-topic here!

    First two verses of "Shame on a Nigga":

    Yeah, yo, aight
    Pass the meth! (meth must be a "cigarette of dope", right?)
    (nizzuh nzza punk nigguh, yeah!)
    Yeah, aight
    kick the raw style, yeah
    Fly that f**kin sack (what is "to fly a sack"?)

    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga (I don't get it: "to run game" = "to cheat"?)
    Wu buck wild with the trigger! ("Wu" must mean "the Wu-Tang Clan"; but what is "to buck with the trigger"?)
    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga
    Wu buck- I F**K yo' ass up! What?

    (HUT ONE, HUT TWO, HUT THREE, HUT!) ("hut" is just an exclamation - no real meaning?)

    [Verse One: Ol Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon the
    Chef]

    Ol' Dirty Bastard, live and uncut!
    Styles unbreakable, shatterproof ("styles" must mean "the style of rapping"?)
    To the young youth, ya wanna get gun? Shoot!
    BLAOW! How you like me now? Don't f**k the style
    Ruthless wild!
    Do ya wanna getcha teeth knocked the F**K out?
    Wanna get on it like that, well then shout! (cannot understand the meaning of this line)

    Yo RZA, yo razor!
    Hit me with the major (what does "major" mean? A major key in music or does it connect with the following word "damage", i.e. "hit me with the major damage"?)
    The damage, my Clan understand it be flavor (what would constitute a "flavor" here?)
    Gunnin, hummin comin atcha
    First I'm gonna getcha, once I gotcha, I gat-cha (a fantastic line! "to gat" must mean "to shoot with a kind of gun"?)
    You could never capture the Method Man's stature
    For rhyme and for rapture, got niggaz resigning, now master (my favorite lines!! I understand them in the following way: "no one can imitate Mr. Meth, because he rhymes too good and is too charming", right? I don't understand "niggaz resigning", thoug, resigning from what?)
    my style? Never! I put the f**king buck in the wild kid, ("to put the buck in the wild"?)
    I'm terror
    Razor sharp, I sever
    the head from the shoulders, I'm better
    than my compeda, you mean competitor, whadeva!
    Let's get together

    Do you mean my post is off-topic? If it is, I'll be trying to find another place for it. Weird, though...

    no its not off-topic, i'll try to answer some:

    Pass the meth! (meth must be a "cigarette of dope", right?)

    -yes the meth is dope with dust sprinkled on it, i never tried it, but that's what i assume it is

    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga (I don't get it: "to run game" = "to cheat"?)

    - Run game is like fronting on somebody in anyway pretty much. Cheating is definitely one of those ways.

    Wu buck wild with the trigger! ("Wu" must mean "the Wu-Tang Clan"; but what is "to buck with the trigger"?)

    -Buckwild is to be crazy... so here they are saying wu is crazy with the trigger

    (HUT ONE, HUT TWO, HUT THREE, HUT!) ("hut" is just an exclamation - no real meaning?)

    -This is the call that a quarterback makes before his center gives him the ball to start a play in American Football. So they are pretty much starting the track here, their verses

    Styles unbreakable, shatterproof ("styles" must mean "the style of rapping"?)

    - You got it, style of rapping.

    "huts" a term in football that most of the time starts a play, so the boyes must be sayin hut to start off the song or something.

    Peace to all fans of the Wu-Tang Clan!

    Excuse my mediocre English - it's not my native language.

    After a break of 10 years, I have returned to my favorite recording of my teenage years - Enter the Wu-Tang. I could not believe it at first but it sounded as raw and powerful as 10 years ago. That's the definition of classics! Word up

    First two verses of "Shame on a Nigga":

    (nizzuh nzza punk nigguh, yeah!)
    Yeah, aight
    kick the raw style, yeah
    Fly that f**kin sack (what is "to fly a sack"?)

    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga (I don't get it: "to run game" = "to cheat"?) - ill try to explain this in a way youll understand but it just means to fool or talk shit or try to trick
    Wu buck wild with the trigger! ("Wu" must mean "the Wu-Tang Clan"; but what is "to buck with the trigger"?) - if youre buck wild with the trigger it means youre gun-happy.
    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga
    Wu buck- I F**K yo' ass up! What?

    (HUT ONE, HUT TWO, HUT THREE, HUT!) ("hut" is just an exclamation - no real meaning?) - American football phrase

    [Verse One: Ol Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon the
    Chef]

    Ol' Dirty Bastard, live and uncut!
    Styles unbreakable, shatterproof ("styles" must mean "the style of rapping"?) -yea
    To the young youth, ya wanna get gun? Shoot!

    Ruthless wild!
    Do ya wanna getcha teeth knocked the F**K out?
    Wanna get on it like that, well then shout! (cannot understand the meaning of this line) - hes just sayin if you wanna get into a fight with the ODB, all you have to do is call him and hell be there

    Yo RZA, yo razor!
    Hit me with the major (what does "major" mean? A major key in music or does it connect with the following word "damage", i.e. "hit me with the major damage"?) - he means a major chord/key from the keyboard, hes says it to RZA because RZA makes all the music
    The damage, my Clan understand it be flavor (what would constitute a "flavor" here?) - saying how good RZA beats are
    Gunnin, hummin comin atcha
    First I'm gonna getcha, once I gotcha, I gat-cha (a fantastic line! "to gat" must mean "to shoot with a kind of gun"?)

I understand them in the following way: "no one can imitate Mr. Meth, because he rhymes too good and is too charming", right? I don't understand "niggaz resigning", thoug, resigning from what?) - resigning- giving up because hes too good
    my style? Never! I put the f**king buck in the wild kid, ("to put the buck in the wild"?) - alrite were back on this buck wild phrase again you dont get. Basically to let you know where "buckwild" comes from, it s used when a cowboy rides a bull/horse and it throws them off the horse, thats called "bucking", its looks crazy, so thats where buckwild comes from

    Yeah, yo, aight
    Pass the meth! (meth must be a "cigarette of dope", right?)

    i always thought Meth was weed "methical", so pass the weed

    Fly that f**kin sack (what is "to fly a sack"?)

    fly that sack - send that sack off weed over here, i wanna roll a blunt

    Shame on a nigga who try to run game on a nigga (I don't get it: "to run game" = "to cheat"?)

    run game - to lie, to bullshit you, like when u tryna talk to a girl, u run game on her to get the pussy right ?? so to run game on a n**ga is to bullshit him to get something u want.

    Wu buck wild with the trigger! ("Wu" must mean "the Wu-Tang Clan"; but what is "to buck with the trigger"?)

    wu is crazy with the guns, take the line before & add on, if u run game on wu, wu gonna shoot u, or it could mean wu go crazy when they holdin a gun, everybody gettin shot

    (HUT ONE, HUT TWO, HUT THREE, HUT!) ("hut" is just an exclamation - no real meaning?)

    hut hut is an american football reference, to start the play off, so dirty usin it to start the song off.....

    Ol' Dirty Bastard, live and uncut!
    Styles unbreakable, shatterproof ("styles" must mean "the style of rapping"?)
    To the young youth, ya wanna get gun? Shoot!
    BLAOW! How you like me now? Don't f**k the style
    Ruthless wild!
    Do ya wanna getcha teeth knocked the F**K out?
    Wanna get on it like that, well then shout! (cannot understand the meaning of this line)

    u want beef ?? if u really want beef, let me know (gimme a shout) we can do this, but you'll get ya teeth knocked out, you'll get fucked up

    Yo RZA, yo razor!
    Hit me with the major (what does "major" mean? A major key in music or does it connect with the following word "damage", i.e. "hit me with the major damage"?)
    The damage, my Clan understand it be flavor (what would constitute a "flavor" here?)

    "yo rza, yo razor, hit me with the major - damage....." either, yo rza, pass me that big gun thats gonna do some major damage or it could be, hit me with that heavy beat thats gonna fuck ya head up (just like "shame on a n**ga")

    "my clan understand it be flavor", think "my flow got mad flavor", meanin the shit is dope, its the best, it feels good all in ya mouth just to say the name or the lyrics

    Gunnin, hummin comin atcha
    First I'm gonna getcha, once I gotcha, I gat-cha (a fantastic line! "to gat" must mean "to shoot with a kind of gun"?)

    i'm comin to get u, once i've got u, ure a deadman, cos i'm gonna shoot u

    You could never capture the Method Man's stature
    For rhyme and for rapture, got niggaz resigning, now master (my favorite lines!! I understand them in the following way: "no one can imitate Mr. Meth, because he rhymes too good and is too charming", right? I don't understand "niggaz resigning", thoug, resigning from what?)

    "u could never capture the method man stature for rhyme & for rapture..", no matter what u do how, hard u try, you'll never be as good as method man or wu.

    "got n**gaz resigning..." meth is so good, he got other mc's quitting the rap game

    my style? Never! I put the f**king buck in the wild kid, ("to put the buck in the wild"?)

    "now master, my style never..." u master meths style ?? not gonna happen...ever

    "i put the fuckin buck in the wild kid..i'm terror..", saying the way that he acts if other mc's bite his style is the whole reason for the term "buck wild", he'll go off crazy at u, he IS terror, he dont just bring terror - extremely hardcore

    I'm terror
    Razor sharp, I sever
    the head from the shoulders, I'm better
    than my compeda, you mean competitor, whadeva!

    fuck around with meth or wu, you'll get ya head cut off, either literally, or in the battle sense, "cuttin heads", cuttin heads is a battle, a contest, meanin if u try to battle, ya gonna lose

    Let's get together

    lets beef it out, physically or lyrically, lets get together & do this


    i'm probably way off on some of this, but this is the way that i understood the verses, peace.
