1. Willie D "I'm Goin Out Lika Soldier"
2. Willie D "Read These Nikes"
3. Bushwick Bill "Size Ain't Shit"
4. Geto Boys "Assassins"
Geto Boys will fuck you up like a goddamn accident!! Easily the most creative shit in rap history. (Fuck all that dorked out astrological break down nag champa shit you heard.) Not making any fucking sense does not make you creative. Speaking on a rap song about smacking a bitch in her mouth like a dude, killing kids, and Freddy Krueger is. It got your attention right? It made you listen to the fucking midget wearing a chucky doll like a rope chain. And yet, this is the shit that I find so corny about the worlds relationship with the Geto Boys.
People who consider themselves a fucking intellectual never want to acknowledge shit that doesn’t sound like it came from a damn manual. You hear a song like “Mind Of A Lunatic”, don’t get it, and write that group off like fucking a fat bitch. Trying to act like the shit ain’t real doesn’t work though. Boiling it down to just violent lyrics, and ignorance can only work on half of them half of the time. “Nyquil that sickness”.
Theres something I have always respected about a dude that has a point of view (no matter how much I agree/disagree), that is still “inclined to physically whip your ass”. Enter, William Dennis a.k.a O.G. Willie D
. The truth. A dude that don’t give a fuck about a goddamn bystander, and songs like “Fuck Rodney King”, “Go Back 2 School” “Do It Like A G.O.”, among others, are a testament to that state of mind under which he lives. When those songs are nestled between songs like “Assassins”, and “Read These Nikes” like TP balls in the crack of your grammas fat ass, it says something bigger to me. Actually, if you really listen to “Goin’ Out Like A Soldier”, Willies 2nd solo effort, the entire record is a social statement.
It’s a statement that has found its way into the gutter of our musical times. “Fuck being rich, fuck your flashy coats, watches, clean hair cuts, groupies and bullshit. Fuck the money you made off of this shit. You are fake, and you cant beat me!!” Even though Geto Boys, and their contemporaries spoke to some degree about these same things, it was never a theme. It was never used to define them. It was usually used as a dis really, like, “I’m a old lady cutting motherfucker, and I look nice as you. PLUS I rap, and if you don’t like how I rap, fuck you, your girl probably wants to fuck.” It was cooler to be on the bottom, as long as you did your thing and the people around you knew what was up, then it was to be all over the T.V. set wearing a big bow tie, hammer footing around with a bunch of back up dancers. Even if Big Bow Tie was making more money, getting more airplay, and reaching more people. Self respect was #1.
We don’t know shit about self respect in music right now. I know its coming back around, everything does. I just hope it’s soon. I’m sick of seeing 14 year old kids wearing Iron Maiden t-shirts who have no idea what Iron Maiden is. I’m also sick of having conversations with 18 year old white kids about rap, who say that 2Pac is the godfather and that Fabolous is the Pac of our time. People are really confused then a motherfucker, and we all know who we need to shake them till they wake up crying; Willie Motherfucking D
. I want to see Willie D back on T.V, practically screaming his verses with complete abandon. Threatening your mama, and teaching you important lessons like “Friends ain’t shit when you’re getting you ass kicked.” Which is true than a motherfucker. We need somebody to fear. And not like some homo, Marilyn Manson fear. Some being scared your kid is gonna lock themselves up in their room, fuck that. I mean some real fucking fear. Some, “I’m scared my kid is gonna join a gang” shit. Fear of a mutiny on this bullshit. Kids coming together and kicking you down off of your soap box. Listen to Bushwick's verse on "Talking Loud & Saying Nothing"
. The reason groups like GBs, Public Enemy, Ice T, N.W.A and coutless others of the time, were being persecuted? The reason those crackers started putting "Parental Advisory" stickers on your records? They were scared.
Get out the way or get T-Rolled bitch. From another nigga insane kicking ass extremely.
