Why didn't you just post a link to the song if you just going to paste all the verses? Lol.
The following bars are some of my all time favorite in rap, however:
"Years back, I reminiscence and remember, sitting on wood benches
Gave me splinters, just a baby nigga, thankful
When them killers came through, guns out, moving
I thank the ones who said shorty go home, we about to be shooting"
"Genesis is deep, my features are that of a God
It's not a facade, it's a fact these rappers wanna be Nas
My Exodus doesn't exist, I'll never leave the streets, it's all in my mind
Even with sleep, I'm duckin nines in my dreams"
It's one thing to say that Buddens might do his homework and show up with some mean bars and make this thing actually interesting, but the fact that niggas in here saying Buddens will actually body Hollow to me is mindboggling. This nigga Hollow isn't just some random dude they pulled off the streets. He's one of the gods of battle rap, tested and proven many times over in the arena, under pressure, stress, anxiety, and with all eyes on him.
Budden's world of experience is in the studio. Battle rap is something Budden is trying out, but it's Hollow's life. This is what he does. It's his work, his profession, and he's spent an entire career perfecting his craft, and you want me to believe that an admittedly talented studio rapper can just waltz into the lion's den with one of the most respected, vicious battle rappers of all time and BODY HIM 3-0? Then, I must say, please tell me what that fine, gourmet crack is that you're smoking because I'd like a hit.
