Listening to this Soul For Real remix posted in the 90s R&B thread. Got me thinking of those... "no he didn't.." times in hip hop."Girl, I'll get you off like Johnny Cockerin..."Let's hear some really bad metaphors spat by hip hop emcees.

    "I said, switching up speeds.....like bruce lee.....riding a fugee......in a movie..." -- Redman

    saying though. metaphors are rarely used in hip-hop. maybe aceyalone. but I'll be damned if I've heard a rap album without the use of similes.

    not a metaphor, per se, but this one is silly to me...

    BDK from i'll take you there;

    "But if you come with me, you're sure to see
    Ethiopians can eat in red lobster for free"

    And shockingly, this came from KRS-One.

    disconnected.

  • From some Ras Kass song:
    "My metaphors are meta-fives,
    My style go up in you raw dog, little boy, you get fucked like pedophiles."

    I really don't know why I remember that.

    Not a metaphor, but a weak ass lyric:

    "Put this in your CD-ROM, WWW.CAN-I-BUS?.COM"


  • FatbackFatback 6,748 Posts
    uh oh. moderhaters pulling me into a battle.

    don't make me channel some Native American rage.

    not really.


    i was listening to funkdoobiest or whatever they are called the other day. and those fuckers are nothing but one simile after another.

    worst metaphors? this lyric is just fresh.

  • Someone has to break out the Melachi:
    "I perform on that ass like an assembly".

    not to forget: "fresher than a virgin in a frigerator" just one rhyme later...

    There's a million rhymes like this though, most rap was built on saying tastless shit like that so we really shouldn't open that can of worms.

    thankfully they did all that name dropping and helped kids buy records.

    That actually wasn't a bad line.
    How that get included on the shit list?


  • -people say I'm good with metaphors but these are similes.

    author of the ignorant classic: "I feel Mexican/Hip hop is my garden."

    not a metaphor, but one of the worst boasts in rap history is LL's "sucker MCs really make me sick/i'm so bad i could suck my own dick."

    really, shit becomes boring after a while...

    hearing dude sayin "Im --- like a ---" 100 times a fuckin song wears mighty thin after a minute. but i cant front, i used to get so fucking high to their first album.
