  3. 'We're taking everything you brought'

    If you're going to get pedantic about something at least do it right. I bet now the reply will be 'Oh I wrote brang as a joke, you just don't get the irony of me getting it wrong while trying to correct Jay-Z.' That would be a very unfunny joke though.

    Such an epic fail from NRSJSAS it's unreal.

  4. Are you kidding me? It's so obviously a joke that this only makes you look even worse than any hater on here, but thanks for reading my blog (which allegedly isn't funny) and getting me all these hits!

    See ya.

  5. I actually really like this blog, and was only messing around, calm down.
    I do understand how annoying it would be to get haters saying they don't like it when noone but themselves is forcing them to read it.
    A minor internet altercation which didn't end in both people insulting eachother for 10 hours, I'm worried as thats just not right.

  8. I think Vanilla Ice deserves verb-tense recognition for his use of "rangst."

  10. To the creators:
    I consider myself a moron, and would also like to start a pseudo-intellectual blog.

    What were the keys to your success?

    Should I (intentionally or otherwise) consistently misinterpret lyrics?

    Should I be incredulous at all times?

    Should my stupidity astound my readers?

    Thanks,

    Vexed in Virginia.

  12. Wow, Vexed. Way to try to back yourself up by posting another post anonymously. No one can see through that at all.

  13. If you're gonna make fun of Jay-Z, pick any one of his numerous, embarassing odes to Beyonce (e.g. Venus v Mars, '03 Bonnie and Clyde, She Got a Fat Ass, etc).

    Nas made it a hot line, Jay made this a hot song.

  14. Chris Macho seems pretty insecure ... guess i would be too if i was so unfunny

  15. Bad grammar aside. Why would you want to bring things to Jay-Z's house if he's just going to take them?

  16. Haters around here act like this blog is taking away from valuable time they could have spent waiting in the unemployment line.

  17. would you like a crowbar?
    just cos it may help you remove yourself from his dick.
    if you dont like this blog you are definitely unemployed, as nobody in a job or university could ever not like something that mr anon likes

  18. No one with a fucking LIFE would spend time bashing a website because THEY DIDN'T GET THE FUCKING PREMISE. Seriously - if you can't accept that these guys genuinely love rap, and that they're making fun of the English language, and the stupidity of overanalysing it and taking it too literally - please die. ASAP. Do not pass GO.

    As an English major and a rap fanatic, I don't love every entry, but I LMAO when these guys hit a vein. That's more than I can say for ANY of the negative-commenting cowards.

  20. I think it's pretty clear this blog is pointing out the absurdity of rap lyrics taken out of context. For many of these though, even the proper context cannot render them reasonable. It is certainly not an indictment of the English language (as the alleged English major suggested) but rather rap artists' clumsy/vulgar use of it.

    To Vexed: It would be a start. How can you not be incredulous when you read, "Dear Mr. Toilet, I'm the shit," or "All black Maybach, I'm sitting in the asshole,"? You could write a dissertation on the meaning of "Dear Mr. Toilet, I'm the shit" taking into account the body of the artist's work, his biography and the state of the genre at the time of his authorship. But it probably won't be funny. Actually, it might be hilarious. You should do it.

    Brung is a colloquialism that is often not used in formal writing. Those of you that pointed it out as a minor error are right but it hardly redeems Jay-Z's many contributions to this site especially its namesake.
