    GZA

    Jose "Choco" Reynoso



    Took her off the showroom floor, no money down
    Near the Chrysler Building, the heart of Midtown
    Two hundred horsepower under the hood
    Junk in the trunk, that be far from damaged goods
    Designer frames, the windshield's stay tinted
    The most beautiful thing someone invented
    A Wrangler had a sticker on the bumper
    A sign in case tow trucks tried to dump her
    Rear view mirror, that of Serena Williams
    Staring with the crime and the look to kill 'em
    Brushless showers and the Brazilian wax
    Cash in the glove department, freeze from tax
    Low mileage, on the odometer
    A graduate, with more degrees than a thermometer
    Spark plugs for great conversation
    She would Focus on the finish line and destination
    Steering in the right direction, made sure
    I wore a seatbelt, and had airbags for protection
    In her tank, she love to stash my tool
    I kept it full, super unloaded fuel
    She had a room full of skirts and rims
    The old ones, used to swing off ropes, that often hung from limbs
    A temp at the Ford Modeling Agency
    Suburban area, where the Caucasians be
    Her great grandfather was a Cherokee Indian
    Exploring Navigator, traveling then begin
    Sharpening his arrows on Plymouth Rock, commanding chief
    Who weighs cattle, only selling the livestock
    King of the Frontier, rider of thoroughbreds
    He was just as sharp as a needle without thread
    Legend in truth, but known to run the herds
    His sons were Oldsmobiles who drink Thunderbird
    Land Cruisers sitting on fertile soil
    With equipment that ran off expensive oil
    Folks bragging, said a horse pulled the Volkswagen
    They love Mustang Sally and lolly gagging
    Fished in Lake Tahoe, cooking Barracuda's
    Hundred Impala's with the six shooters
    From a long range with the dog Rover
    It was something else to see him out and over
    Some got caught in the Crossfire, a bunch of rabbits
    Indicating these dudes should retire
    One was oddball, rocking a sunroof
    A gas guzzler, in his grill was one tooth
    A strong Accent and a beard like Lincoln
    Who hated the Golf course, but he love drinking
    Avenger, used to pick up chicks
    He had Magnums, that was laying tough but thick
    Wore a Blazer, and where he used to hide the ruger
    For encounters with the Jaguars and Cougars
    A veteran move and salute, sing the anthem
    In Accord with the plan, he was a Phantom
    He had a fat lady, they called Hummer
    And um, she needed bodywork for the whole summer
    She had a few friends, who used to stay in the pound
    Abandoned parking lots and junkyard down
    Regulars in rest areas and truck stops
    Cassette player, known to make the tape pop
    Gold diggers, who wanted cream like well's Fargo
    In Vegas, they circle around a Montecarlo
    You know the snakes with the fangs of Vipers
    Bloodsuckers, who will use the piss from hiking
    Met the Cavaliers at the Outback Steakhouse
    Chicken cutlet supreme, just for takeout
    One of them was forced to live in Astoria
    Cuz at the auction they had Crown Victoria
    Since then, her friends charged with battery
    Had her running off the sweets flattery
    She kept a loud muffler, couldn't trust her
    Police used to always pull over his duster
    A pothead, who some called the Firebird
    A foul mouth who could of used wiser words
    Her man used to hustle and ran the crack corner
    So insecure, he kept Low Jack on her
    Peeping with his visors low, high beaming
    Temper would accelerate, private eyes scheming
    He would check his console for rubber
    She would pass the inspection with flying colors
    She would turn left, if he said right
    On a cycle, he would often run a red light
    His voice Echoed if she Dodged a Convoy
    A previous owner, all he did was bone her
    Some drove her crazy, she was just a loner
    He had a leaking transmission fluid
    Said it was an accident, didn't mean to do it
    No insurance, but a grill to cage
    She sobbed uncontrollably and still stayed
    Another total Eclipse for the heart
    Like the freezing weather that never gave her a start
    Plus, he had a Sidekick in his garage
    And if he needed a Boost, she would give him a charge
    He was sentence for running an Escort service
    Escaped from prison but made a few nervous
    His baby mother and wife, the BMW
    Number one on her list, who he brought trouble to
    She done everything to regain her Liberty
    Tried to be Audi, but went into delivery
    Moved to Aspen, survived the Avalanche
    A different Element, inside a cattle ranch
    Far away when she changed the pattern

    The distance was light from Mercury to Saturn


















    Monumental song right here. To me the best track on the album. Gza's lyrics and delivery are mindblowing.

    I printed out the lyrics to this song and tried to flow with it on the instrumental track and wow.

    Gza is a supernova!

    My biggest problem is obviously the reused beat from Stay in Line, dope track otherwise

    One of the more boring tracks on the album. Gza sounded half asleep on this, and the beat didn't help.

    the lyrics are excellent and very clever, but he sounds so bored on this...and fuck him for using the same beat from 'stay in line', just slightly weaked (or same sample)

    If GZA is going to do stuff like this, he should just make a spoken word album and stop raping, because this is NOT rapping. I don't listen to music as a replacement to literature, I listen to music to be moved. This shit is like limestone.

    The lyrics are very cool and clever, yes. Its genuinely interesting to hear GZA's wordplay. And yet, about halfway through the song, the only image that comes to my mind is a swinging pendulum as GZA lulls me into hypnosis.

    Compare GZA on Guillotine (Swords), Ruckus, Clan in da Front, or Liquid Swords to this stuff. You're hearing a special MC with such focus and presence that he commands attention without even trying. I listen to Pro Tools and I hear a brilliant poet who's forgotten how to rap.

    3 stars.

    he really should stop raping before he gets caught.

    i read in interview when pro tools came out where genius said this was just an appetizer for his next album which will be his ultimate masterpiece, so let's see what happens.

    i think as a writer he's actually gotten stronger, hopefully he steps up his energy and delivery next time.
