R.A.W. Honorable Mention 2-20-2009: Brian

February 20, 2009 · 0 comments

Today we have another Honorable Mention for Rap Appreciation Week:  Brian, of multiple comment fame.  If anything, this is really more of a “Best in Show” than anything else.  Brian’s the only one who sent in more than one submission, and I can’t let that go unnoticed.

So here’s to you, Brian:  you’re famous again.

And to you, dear readers, for making Rap Appreciation Week such a success.  Here’s the link for the YouTube video you can “watch” as you read Brian’s post:

I Gave You Power
by NAS
from It Was Written

Always I’m in some shit, my abdomen is the clip
The barrel is my dick, uncircumcised
Pull my skin back and cock me, I bust off when they unlock me
Results of what happens to niggaz shock me
I see niggaz bleedin runnin from me in fear, stunningly tears
fall down the eyes of these so-called tough guys, for years
I’ve been used in robberies, givin niggaz heart to follow me
Placin peoples in graves, funerals made cause I was sprayed
I was laid in a shelf, with a grenade
Met a wrecked-up tech with numbers on his chest that say
Five-two-oh-nine-three-eight-five and zero
Had a serial defaced, hopin one day, police would place
where he came from, a name or some sort of person to claim him
Tired of murderin, made him wanna be a plain gun
But yo I had some other plans, like the next time the beef is on
I make myself jam right in my owner’s hand

I like this song because I think it’s very creative how NAS tells an entire story about himself being a gun.  It makes me feel like I could sit down and write about anything.
