slick rick, overall best ever...nas did the damn thing, my favorite story telling song is I gave you power

[code][Nas]
Damn! Look how muh-fu*kers use a n*gga
Just use me for whatever the fu*k they want
I don't get to say sh*t
Just grab me, just do what the fu*k they want
Sell me, throw me away
n*ggaz just don't give a fu*k about a n*gga like me right?
Like I'm a f... I'm a gun, sh*t
It's like I'm a motherfu*kin gun
I can't believe this sh*t....
Word up.. (word up..)

I seen some cold nights and bloody days
They grab and me bullets spray
They use me wrong so I sing this song 'til this day
My body is cold steel for real
I was made to k!ll, that's why they keep me concealed
Under car seats they sneak me in clubs
Been in the hands of mad thugs
They feed me when they load me with mad slugs
Seventeen precisely, one in my head
They call me Desert Eagle, semi-auto with lead
I'm seven inches four pounds, been through so many towns
Ohio to Little Rock to Canarsie, livin harshly
Beat up and battered, they pull me out
I watch as n*ggaz scattered, makin me k!ll
But what I feel it never mattered
When I'm empty I'm quiet, findin myself fiendin to be fired
A broken safety, n*ggaz place me in shelves
under beds, so I beg for my next owner to be a thoroughbred
Keep me full up with hollow heads

Chorus: Nas (repeat 2X)

How you like me now? I go blaow
It's that sh*t that moves crowds makin every ghetto foul
I might have took your first child
Scarred your life, crippled your style
I gave you power
I made you buck wild

[Nas]
Always I'm in some sh*t, my abdomen is the clip
The barrel is my d!ck, uncircumcised
Pull my skin back and c*ck me, I bust off when they unlock me
Results of what happens to n*ggaz shock me
I see n*ggaz 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 n*ggaz 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

Chorus

[Nas]
Yo, weeks went by and I'm surprised
Still stuck in the shelf with all the things that an outlaw hides
Besides me it's bullets, two vests and then a nine
There's a grenade in a box, and that tech that kept cryin
Cause he ain't been cleaned in a year, he's rusty as clear
He's bout to fall to pieces, cause of his murder career
Yo, I can hear somebody comin in, open the shelf
His eyes bubblin, he said, "It was on"
I felt his palm troubled him shakin
Somebody stomped him out, his dome was achin
He placed me on his waist, the moment I've been waitin
My creation was for blacks to k!ll blacks
It's gats like me that accidentally, go off, makin n*ggaz memories
But this time, it's done intentionally
He walked me outside, saw this cat
Cocked me back, said, "Remember me?"
He pulled the trigger but I held on, it felt wrong
Knowing n*ggaz is waiting in hell for 'im
He squeezed harder, I didn't budge, sick of the blood
Sick of the thugs, sick of wrath of the, next man's grudge
What the other kid did was pull out, no doubt
A newer me in better shape, before he lit out, he lead the chase
My owner fell to the floor, his wig split so fast
I didn't know he was hit, it's over with
Heard mad n*ggaz screamin, n*ggaz runnin, cops is comin
Now I'm happy, until I felt somebody else grab me
Damn![/code]

i hate when people say slick rick like they were actually pumping his music through their speakers all day, lol. ya'll only saying slick rick because it just seems like the "right thing to say". nobody could tell me one song aside from "lotty dotty" and "children's story". look, slick rick will always be remembered as one of the greatest storytelling rappers to do it. he was one of the pioneers, but nas took that and revolutionized the art of storytelling. please give me one slick rick song that's on par with "one love", "the message", "i gave you power", "shootouts", "suspect", "undying love", "rewind", "2nd childhood", "what goes around", "blaze a 50", "sekou story", "live now"......

and if you haven't listened to any of those songs then you have no say so whatsoever. nas is the best story telling rapper of all time, not just our time. and he pays homage to slick for doing it before him.

im DISGUSTED at how many votes there were for Nas. im fu*king new school and i know that Slick Rick is better than Nas. u people should be ashamed of yourselves
look slick rick is a legend and his songs are classics that i still bump but nas has done it for 14 years straight and he still puts out joints like death anniversary where the story of imagining he didn't exist and providing a story to go with it are unparellel...everyone love slick rick but calm down......

I disagree. They are different types of storytellers. Slick Rick always has humourous stories, whereas nas goes for more serious tales. I think it's a pretty good question, to say rick is much better than nas is wrong in my veiw, their pretty dam even. Also slick ricks stories are ALOT more simplistic than nas' stories, meaning ricky doesnt sound very intellectual when he spits his stories, not saying it's a bad thing, but it shows another difference in their story telling techniques.

not even gonna argue cuz i know if i do that a lot of nas stans are gonna be hitting that hate button. nas stans are the worst stans in the music business, so ima just say i disagree with you.
