The Mystery Language of Outkast- You May Die (Intro) from ATLiens
 

 
Now... This is hands down my favorite album of all time. Outkast at its best... No album has come close to this since I copped it the day it came out around 10 years ago (wow.. cant believe its been that long.)


Now having said all that.... There has always been a mystery about the intro this album= "You May Die".

I've googled it and it comes up with these lyrics:


"Navem nu cuando sol
Tutu nu vondo nos nu
Vita em no continous non
Nos nu ekta nos sepe ta amen"



This is implying its a mix of spanish and latin. Its not.


Now after listening to it closely... these are the lyrics I get:


"Nadanu vondo sol.
Tutunu vondos ????
Vita ?? ?????????
???????????????"


Just going by that first word.... its some kind of Sumerian/Babylonian language used thousands of years ago.

In Sumerian, nadanu= "Give (To Pay)". So I Know that is definetly the right word... After that, though, things get complicated.... There are no "v"'s in the Sumerian language, so it isnt vondo.

So right now i'm at a loss... but maybe someone who has better speakers then this sh*tty laptop can give it a listen and try to give me a better translation?



Heres the song:

I know its stupid to care about such a little thing, but its been a 10-year old mystery for me and I'd really like to uncover it. I'm sure someone else has wondered the same thing, also.
