The last two lines Ghostface says:
Gettin caught up in my world, Haagen-Dazs world
Backflip and then twirl, cave your whole world in


He's referring to the celebrity lifestyle as being like Haagen-Dagz ice cream. It is flavorful (the best ice cream ever!), but it is also cold. It can make your life chaotic.


BTW, cherry fudge truffle is my favorite HD. Check it out.


edit - I just noticed you said last two verses, not lines. Oh well, time for me to go to work. Marinate on what I wrote. Hopefully you will learn to understand Wu more.

His world (as a celebrity) can make you back flip, twirl, cave your world in. Ice cream was the analogy.

Couldn't tell if you were being funny, or if you really didn't understand.

It's Häagen-Dazs swirl

the verses themselves are not something you have to "get", it's just rap shit. But if there are specific things then ask.

Move the housing by the thousand, I watched out the Chrysler
Bombs strike ya like the mighty Thor, blast the door
Recite a page like a tidal wave, past the shore
Two pulls, I'm wild like mechanical bulls
Pack a full house, it's girls night out, pull a hairful
Heavenly laced, stimulation make you feel slow paced
I motivate and await my sober state

Ghos siad in an interview one time, when he rights it's means something at the time, but even he'll forget what the hell he's talking about.

Trying to decipher this shit is just ridiculous. Sometimes when people write they'll put down things only their family, crew, or cetain people they know will get.

That Deck verse seemed....different. Usually, his verses are more clear. It was still dope though.

Magnificent, heavenly. The God stay bent
Five Percent. Range whippin. Soul controller of the lynch

Ghost is magnificent and heavenly. He stays fucked up. He is a Five Percenter. I think Range whippin' is a reference to a Range rover (whip = vehicle) because you always hear Ghost and Rae talk about Jeeps, Landcrusiers, MPVs and the like. Soul controller of the lynch means he is the one responsible for 'murderin' the rhythm'.

For some reason, when I look at Coconut Jewels, I think of Donkey Kong. Remember that show? Where DK would always get the Crystal Coconut from K. Rool? .....no? Well, I doubt that's what he means, but it's what I think of.

Maybe he just means jewels the size of coconuts....thats seems a lot more likely.

^ i love that line 'soul controller of the lynch'
it's one of those lines that just pops out the first time you hear it and sticks with you.
in my opinion, this is one of ghost's best verses because it's a perfect example of his unique lyrical style.
