can you rhyme for nights, Magsj? :lol:

No! :|

There's a tune that says 'I've got rhymes for days', but I ain't Arc, but I love rap music, but just can't rhyme myself #-o so I'll just be a groupie instead :P

](*,) stop setting such limits on yourself, Magsj. You have a vocabulary in your brain. pick any word and make it ryhme. you can do this. then just sit and think put an image to it and feelings to it...and then just do it. I know that you can.

the lady is an english lass
with all together too much sass
of course she says she cannot rhyme
to me she's lazy, what a crime

now let's begin to do this right
unless you really want to fight
put down your tea and concentrate
and afterwards we'll celebrate

"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Has anyone recorded any of this? I'm not exactly a musician, but I enjoy making beats for this sort of stuff. Simple and quick:

A slow one for waterfall rhymes:

This is a philosophical rap in dutch that I did recently...

By the way, does anyone know what happened to Three Times Great?

on the street the fiends meet, scheming for a better way,
to get paid and re-up and re-fuck their lives,
along with the ghetto,
whose self induced pathological lies will be exposed like Geppetto,
with fallen metal when your minds struck in a mental,
loop loosely choosing rudely used wordy confusing new
learnings to get my message through to you stripling bitches
your mind is your own snitch and not long before you get pinched-
-you'll stop running from the siren and realize that the night is ignorance.
Hiding from yourself is destructive to your own wealth
And in doing so you fuck up shit for everyone else
so unless you buck up bitch and get on some self help
keep diluting before you end up on the toilet smelling like Elvis smelt taking his last shit.

My fishy rhymes spin dimes and split crimes with no signs, parallels with no lines, packaged and sent out only in Trord Fucks
Whatever makes you happy.

well thank ye'.

I find myself sitting down a fussing over an opening line for so long that i choose not to write anything entirely. It seems that when i just let things flow they take their own shape.

I like this one too, partly because it is easily read, partly because it has wit, and partly because it has real and relevant meaning.

(i find it hard to self glorify in raps, which accounts for 99% of mainstream lyrics)

My parables are terrible,

Like Babylon I leave your mind cut up and devoured by cannibals,

And as the cloth wipe their mouths begins the unbearable,

Hysterical laughter of the satanical clerical,

Preaching rapture to catch you, survival through lack of sin,

The revival ship's come in, while you rot in the pasture your pastor wins,

God enslaves you at a young age, your life taken,

Even when your used up you can't accept you'll die forsaken,

This shit only hastens complacence,

Like a maggoty corpse putting into your children the fear of the lord,

That bewildering loop wielding that classic and dogmatic righteous sword

From gore to whores the libelous bible uses and abuses disciples with lore

Which only confuses to induce a lewd mind state of core hatred for any aberration,

In those not working the spiritual plantation,

Your minds facing time in a cell, like covert terrorism blindly installing itself

Causing you to lose control of yourself and hate our freedoms

Like blaming demons screaming inside bleeding, internally wounded

Inflicted fools with desperation I deter terminally,

Ill thoughts is what I express while shutting you down permanently,

I'll have your ideals tested when it comes to chasing the festered scribblings of a desert

But you waste your life like children feeling pestered, refusing lessons like a jester

My conquest affects ya so self delude and reminisce or get artistic and cut your ear off to accept this

The difference between your ideas and mine is that when none care my ideas go nowhere and you're left on the street,

Hard up with no wares doing what rats dare bleeding for a new dope chair like Conan and Leno scheming for corporate welfare.
Whatever makes you happy.

Awesome thread! Can't believe I JUST discovered it.


Ima join this spittin circle just as long as we aren't jerks;
I only launch my pearls in oysters--I don't flaunt em like the Turks.
I aint no damn designer--I know blue, yellow and red:
Humpty Dumpty sees an asian rump, the native stump revs.

--Is that Satanic? Ought I try to find the break and slam it?
The Jinn en side is guiding me to find my Seoul and jam it.

Wonderer wrote:i decided to butcher this rap by revealing most of the metaphors, it will be funny



rap about philosophy isn't hard just watch you'll see

me tear apart your sloppy plea while constantly droppin heat
( droppin hot rhymes)

like freon, with neon signs illustrating your death
(freon is an agent used in refridgerators, which "drops" heat )

swiftly on the wings of evil created by man like meth
( evil is a concept created by man, like meth)

I'll defeat you like Set, every morning cause I'm Horus
(see egyptian mythology)

this ain't this chorus, you fucking whores my stores of weapons

allow me to wage psychological wars with tours ranging from knocking on doors
(propaganda campaigns)

to smashing in heads until blood flows out of your pores
(breaking skulls somehow relates to influencing their minds)

so sit back and accept the tyranny because spiritually your cryptically shifted by people like me
(PR specialists...)

out of sobriety into anxiety until society submits to my propriety where variety is an illusion
(industrialized individualism)

the confusion I'm using leaves you torn and abused when your lines sound like Schwarzenegger smoking crack before shooting

a movie about mocking T.V, while watchin Rambo 3, you see machine guns are fun buy you're lyrically done
(this line actually makes fun of all the gun references Carleas and Impious used :) )
you're a shit crumb on the ass of this rap, but don't run

like so many before you

give me a chance to extort you implore you to see reason

because I'm not feelin this weak ass shit that you're droppin

like constipated malnourished orphans your endorphins will be expended
(because constipated malnourished orphans take or drop weak shits)

when you're suspended in time due to the rhyme my crimes

absolved when there is no sign of my entry into your mind

or proof of mandatory suicide, from inside your twisted mentality

with excess brutality i infiltrate and manipulate reality to a negative totality

you're part of a franchise like wall mart slaves swatting sand flies

You see i need to extort the corporate greed to plant the seed

and have them breed, incessantly, incestuously

an army of aboriginal cannibals trained by Hannibal

designed to invade every capitol on this pathetic planet

I'll encase you in granite and listen to your cries

I'm sadistic like government lies screaming out lord why
(profiteering)

did you put my on this earth just to live a life of crime

for what short time we have it isn't worth it to flirt with spirituality

because with actuality god doesn't care, he isn't there

walking through the crowd like you're a king though your ass is bare
(reference to "the emperors new clothes")

we'll sit around laugh and stare at your prayer your quick to scare

But it's too late because you're in my lair of the true lord

and with my flaming sword i will dispatch your false gods your at odds

with survival so grab your bible this is no libel

because without a maniacal rival to keep you bitches in place, things are liable to go tribal
(fear used for control)

and if those that die will

go directly to Satan you better straighten

up your policy so don't throw rocks at me
(don't stone me to death)

just because i laugh in your face when you're confronted with a philosophy

that denounces god as an imaginary scape goat

a fake hoax who would trade his soul for a rain coat.

investing in heaven is the worst move since believing terrorists caused nine eleven.

no bid contract companies all of them in bed with corrupt politicians,

my ambitions and premonitions label me insane,

they say things are wrong with my brain demons unconstrained,

so quit the game now in shame while you're ahead with chest pains and shit stains

just abstain from any rap battle

cause I'm a prophetic Sheppard and you bitches are just cattle
(by that i mean you are ignorant to the numerous political metaphors)
