getting visual is a habit (i.e. habitual)

GZA always prides himself in making descriptive lyrics. Rhymes you can "see".

Getting visual's habitual means he always slings that imagistic style.

Good shit right there. Isn't the next line something like "walking on hot coals at rituals" Theres so many ways to interpret that. I always thought GZA had a very majestic way about him (especially in the old days) and on Beneath the Surface. His rhyming style is so unique and image provoking. OUT

Default Re: Getting visuals

the phrase "getting visuals" is often used to describe a moderate to heavy state of intoxication on a hallucinogenic substance like LSD or PCP...it is short for "getting visual hallucinations." I think GZA is trying to say that where he comes from, people are habitually intoxicated on hallucinogens. "Getting visuals" denotes a heightened state of intoxication becuase you don't just feel a buzz or sense that music sounds better, etc, but you actually see things that aren't there. Cf. the next line about splashing paint on a wall and seeing an image. As poster before said, more here than on most hip-hop albums.

Visuals can be reached through meditation as well.
