Default Ghostface on Rules

Does anybody else think it's strange that Ghostface says "no disrespect" when he says he'll shoot down terrorists that fly over the hood?

[Ghostface Killah]
Who the fuck knocked our buildings down?
Who the man behind the World Trade massacres, step up now
Where the four planes at huh is you insane bitch?
Fly that shit over my hood and get blown to bits!
NO DISRESPECT, that's where I rest my head
I understand you gotta rest yours too, nigga my people's dead
America, together we stand, divided we fall
Mr. Bush sit down, I'm in charge of the war!

Man agree I always hated Ghost verse, it was gay as fuck. To me it fucked the whole song up. Not so much the No Disrespect bit, but the verse in general. The WTC building are not ours (black people), never where. That was a weak ass album by Wu standards, I remember turning the volume down on Ghost's verse

stupid, when Ghost says "our buildings" i always took "our" to mean New Yorkers, i personally didnt realise that the 9/11 shit was just about black people, i thought it was about New York people in general.



as far as the "no disrespect" part, i took that like, "dont take it personally, anyone comes in here and fucks up my shit, i'm gonna come fuck up yours", maybe i'm wrong, but it at least answers the thread starters question.

I thought the "No disrespect" part was just because he actually mentioned Sept 11
So he is saying "No disrespect" to the people that died and the people who were affected by it in some way.

I hope thats what he means. Im not sure though.
