deciphering (MF) DOOM lyrics

Recommended Posts

 

Sniper Elite off an EP from the late Dilla

 

To the head

The new June moon shootin on a blue lagoon

Shoot as DOOM zooms in on a platoon

Z-zing! Sniper Elite

Swipe em off his feet on this type of heat beat

Stranger on a solo misflow dolo

Paid. Played the position by the poles glow

Heard it on the TV promo

Swear it ain't me in the P.E. Logo

Remote control in his overcoat Polo Go for broke get the dough, float on the go-go

Hopes and praise out of phase with the... straight through the middle

Crews hate the new riddle, too... late too little

Operation Doomsday complete

On the Jump street dump the heat

 

Vil

One shot, one kill

Spotted him, got his off the top, done deal

Spill your guts, they say they said the Don dead good

You could ask the dread in your hood or John Ed Wood

The truth is in the verse not on the bottle bottom

Black devils is the worst, first you gotta spot em

Ain't never get stuck on their boats

And don't give a fuck if he gettin their votes

At most he may exchange pleasantries

Really don't go for the sex change energies

Or Ben 'n' Jerry's berries

Friends with make pretend fairies

Who take men's cherries

Just don't boycott his shit

The fake first amendment

Foils the plot, mischievous midget

 

 

making any bit of sense of this is boggling. DOOM may even refer to that in the song Crews hate the new riddle, too... late too little is he just off in another dimension via trees? if you aren't as well its too late too little?

Not that any of the suck up fan boys care, but MF fell way off after the KMD work, infact no, after his Doomsday work. 1999. Should have retired 10 years ago.

alot of that shit be crazy. my moms overheard some of his shit in the car takin her out to dinner. she mentioned he said a phrase she hasn't heard since her moms family from back in the 50's. im pretty sure all of the shit make sense. guys just on a different level of mc'in than what most of you knuckleheads is used to. if you aint never heard certain words/phrases of course that shit gonna sound retarted.

MFDoom definately has not fallen off, though his sound has changed alot since Doomsday, So i dont really see a grounds to knock it becuase you dont like the sound, you can't deny that his rhyme skills have gotten alot better, especially since KMD. Dont get me wrong, i love KMD and old Doom, but hes really got somthing going still..

"Hi I'm MF DOOM I have so much respect for my loyal fans that I'm actually gonna send an imposter out to perform in my shows. AND THEN make up a load of bullshit once they find out"

 

Guy must be laughing right now... and people still suck up to him like he's some kind of God.

 

 

Just the way i see it.

from J-Toth Ghostwhirl

 

what a messy fuss

it happens to the best of us

Love/hate to raise the heart rate up to your chest to bust

and leave you with just enough stress to cuss

ooh trouble, two’s a couple, three’s treacherous

and got you open like the high seas

hoping like deez for the squeeze on live G’s…jive turkeys

they lucky if they survive the depths of hell, it’s murky

jerky, come on work with me

see how she’s twerking the skirt with tits perky

a flirt with a smirk that could body you in one shot glance

and let ‘em rot, I’m like, “not a chance, hot pants!”

run feet, and keep from off front street

that sizzle like the blunt heat

with business that’s for under sheets

creep on secret missions, peep it

or else be in some deep shit, with more fishes to sleep with.

sniper elite makes perfect sense.

 

i can see how the lot of you all would get confused though, seeing as how 90% of the niggas that are way popular now lack the art of storytelling.

 

Doom is just telling a story.

The first part is about a botch hit the second is mf dooms alter ego hating on gay people. probably with some homosexual ubertones.

its just abstraction and the use of old phrases.

 

also;

 

 

Don't mind me, I wrote this rhyme lightly

Off a two or three Heines, and boy was they fine gee

One Black, One Spanish, One Chiney

It keeps the woody shiny year round like a pine tree

XXL: Let’s clear something else up. I heard a rumor that you’ve had people show up to shows as you with the mask on and everything, that obviously weren’t you. Is there truth to that?

 

DOOM: Show up as the character? I’m not the character. You’re talking to the writer right now. In that respect, think about it like this. If you write a screenplay, or a stage joint, some type of theater presentation, like Tyler Perry’s a perfect example. He writes the joints, but then he plays the character of Madea, the old lady and shit. If he decided to outsource that, and get another actor to play Madea, it’s still Madea, you know what I mean? I’m trying to snap niggas out of that getting too caught up in the person as opposed to the music. It’s sound. Go with what you hear, not what you see. So if somebody comes to the show expecting to see me, the writer, you might not. But you will hear the work. So if I feel the need to hire somebody to do the character, I will. I might hire Denzel [Washington] to do it and really get it rockin’. He costs a lot though probably [laughs].

Call him back when you need some more yak, horseshach

Doing 80 down the Van Wyck on horseback

Ya' man sick but he wreck tracks, puto

Get back too bro', exactamundo

Viktor the director flip a script like Rob Reiner

The way a lotta dudes rhyme their name should be "knob shiner"

For a buck, they'd likely dance the Jig or do the Hucklebuck

To Vik it's no big deal, they're just a buncha knuckle-fucks

"who got the most whips, gats, & cash,

if you ax the villain, he say who gives a rat's ass"

 

"yup, you know it, growing up too fast,

showing up to class wif' my wet in a flask,

he ax the teacher if he leave will he pass,

girl is home alone, he tryin to get the..."

 

"halt, who goes there,

it's me, v, the mc who's nasty as nose hair"

 

"uh oh, it's where a clock I think I'm sober,

how bout we think this over over a can of king cobra"

 

"the people say he's the nicest,

he only wants to be left alone to his own devices"

Gooey gum drops, who he got his style from?

 

His pops, you gotta give the bum some props

Ask ya sister, her beat box is more thicker

Doom, that nigga detox with malt liquor

 

Villain for hire, admire the sound

Make sure The Price Is Right before he come on down!

Rappers be on some, "You you you!"

 

Forgot who they talking too, too much pork stew

They need to not come out with nothing new

Blew the whole shit up on some, "What this button do?"

 

- "Change the Beat" off MF Doom is Viktor Vaughn, Vaudeville Villain

A modern day marvel but terrible, better horrible

When he grab the mic, son he crushed up all his metacarpals

He said he ain't mean it, totally by accident

After the show, he didn't follow where y'all taxi went

Will this be available on wax? Ask Max Mill

They on the opposition to his ass wack tax bill

But will it pass the senate? Slum lord tenant

And super like 1-A, have a fun stay

One day, he plan to put in a runway

With enough land for his own projects and gun play

Section 8 penthouse, maid look like Faye Dunaway

Alotta y'all assed out like gay runaways

It's how they say "semi-risque"

All day everyday, give out Emmy's the quick way

Have the average mc say, "Gimme a sick day!"

They really ain't got shit to say like Timmy McVeigh

Get a hunch, a real rag tag bunch

In school, he kept a doo rag in his bag lunch

Just to eat heads on some breakdance shit and spit

 

He ripped this skit in sanscript

If the pants fit, sport 'em but rock 'em low

Your man like Rollo on the slow, can't knock it though

It's like the same hustle bro, two knuckles glow

Tucked in Le Tigre, just let the name buckle show

 

Good googly moogly, see that loogie?

Yeah, but keep it on the D.L. Hughley

You don't watch her, he might Houser like Doogie

Just to cut her loosie like *swoosh* Mitsurugi

Gooey gum drops, who he got his style from?

 

His pops, you gotta give the bum some props

Ask ya sister, her beat box is more thicker

Doom, that nigga detox with malt liquor

 

Villain for hire, admire the sound

Make sure The Price Is Right before he come on down!

Rappers be on some, "You you you!"

 

Forgot who they talking too, too much pork stew

They need to not come out with nothing new

Blew the whole shit up on some, "What this button do?"

Doom cheat the game like walk-thru

Run 'em, son 'em like Mr. Rourke do Tattoo

The way alotta clowns get down is unnatural

This flow flip like oranges, apples

Rhymes like limes to a Lemonade Snapple

Leave her at the chapel, don't eat Scrapple

First thing they notice when they come to is they bling is gone

Then they start remembering the Klingon with the rings on

In came the Villain with their own gear like, "Hi, there"

Y'all play the rear, this whole year MY year

Metal face beard like Brillo pad

Y'all know his steelo so don't feel so bad

Seed call him, "Ol' dad," the one the ol' hoe had

Knew he was a winner since a swimmer in the gonads

Okay pal, pay him like Paypal

So we could be A-OK not OK Corral

I think today I'll make the ladies say, "Ow"

And maybe fuck around take a bow, now

 

Who made his first mill and still carry razor blades

Used to be straight A's and still made the grade

Retarded ass, how he get cash so fast

Year after last, left back in the retarded class

Shoulda went to Boces

Watch him all closely, who he think he supposed to be

Villain who always win, at least he stay consistent

Find out where that bitch went, get a room pitch a tent

 

Yo yo, Max, yo change the beat yo

You got another one ... nah yo

"Few can do it even fewer can sell it

Take it from the dude who wears mask like a 'tarded helmet

He plots shows like robberies

In and out

One, two, three, nobodies pleased

Run the cash and you won't get a wet sweatshirt

The mic is the shooty nobody move nobody get hurt

Bring heat like the boy I'm going to war

Came in the door, and everybody on the floor

A whole string of jobs like we are on tour

Everynight on the score coming to your corner store"

 

-One Beer
