We’re starting something new on LALeakers.com called “QUOTABARZ”. I feel that a lot of new music is released every week and not all of it is fully digested, with a lot of hot “barz” going overlooked. On “QUOTABARZ” I’m devoted to giving you the most quotable “barz” of new music releases each week.
This week Kendrick Lamar blessed us with his highly-anticipated ‘DAMN.’ album. Aside from King Kendrick, it’s been a busy week filled with new releases from some of the hottest in the game like Nas and Dave East. Just yesterday we got new verses from Logic, Lil Wayne and The Game. Fuego.
Let’s get it started.
With a whole album loaded with hot verses and under 24 hours to fully digest the work, here’s some of the hottest “barz” that have stood out so far from K. Dot’s new album ‘DAMN.’.
“I was born like this, since one like this / Immaculate conception / I transform like this, perform like this / Was Yeshua’s new weapon.” – TRACK: “DNA.”
“I know how you work, I know just who you are / See, you’s a, you’s a, you’s a— / Bitch, your hormones prolly switch inside your DNA / Problem is, all that sucker shit inside your DNA / Daddy prolly snitched, heritage inside your DNA.” – TRACK: “DNA.”
“Last LP I tried to lift the black artists / But it’s a difference between black artists and wack artists” – TRACK: “ELEMENT.”
“I feel like debated on who the greatest can stop it / I am legend, I feel like all of y’all is peasants / I feel like all of y’all is desperate / I feel like all it take is a second to feel like / Mike Jordan whenever holdin’ a real mic” TRACK: FEEL.”
“Watch my soul speak, you let the meds talk, ayy / If I kill a n—a, it won’t be the alcohol, ayy / I’m the realest n—a after all, b-tch, be humble” – TRACK: “HUMBLE.”
“Within fourteen tracks, carried out over wax / Wonderin’ if I’m livin’ through fear or livin’ through rap” – TRACK: “FEAR.”
“Hard to kill, sober brought painkillers on any mission / Paranoia ready, Miami just to let Diddy listen”
“If I punch ’em they gon’ sue me they ain’t even worth the threat”
“Ambidextrous drive with my right, I can work the left / I ain’t learned shit in college in the streets I learned finesse”
“Hustling is an art, I’m just trying to be smart / Strung our bodies out in the park, Shaolin was my heart”
“My raps were like crystallized powder before crack / Raw, uncut, like what they sold in front of the store front”
“I took a pen, became a voice for the voiceless / My people walking in a zombie state / Life is short, even mines at stake”
“Walking with my Ghandi gun: I’m so at peace with it”
“Would say I’m pushing weight like a nigga who fixing to bench-press / But that shit older than Oprah, I told y’all I been fresh”
“Don’t play this for seven days and watch them say / Shit was all good just a week ago”
“Like FreeBandz sippin’ dirty Ima sip it all / That’s cuz my circle is the Future like a crystal ball.”
“From H to the E double hockey sticks, keep a chopper chop you if you try me bitch /Let’s see who next on my homi’ list, Carti like, “Rocky you bodied this” – A$AP ROCKY
“Cops want to ID us, hope they as fast as my Adidas” – A$AP ROCKY
“I don’t usually do this but the drink has got me moody / Got me thinking ’bout decisions man / I should’ve left with Juvey”
“Heard them boys gon’ write me off / I Hope they also writing they wills”
“She give me drunken face, she give me highest praise / And when I’m in LA, I’m smoking Kobe Bryant eighths”
“I watched my father whip the yay up like some mayonnaise / Mom’s would come home, they would argue he didn’t put away the plates”
“I ain’t here to pick and choose / I ain’t here to sing the blues / I’m just here to spread the clues / I’m just here to spread the news / Everybody know I do”
“I ain’t ashamed to be white / I ain’t ashamed to be Black / I ain’t ashamed of my beautiful Mexican wife as a matter of fact / I know you fucking with that”
“Momma don’t love me / Daddy don’t love me / Wonder why I drown in the bubbly / You could be anything you wanna be / Except the person you don’t wanna be”
“I’m just as white as that Mona Lisa / I’m just as black as my cousin Keisha / I’m biracial so bye Felicia”
“Petite felit, yeah my face is on / Can’t none of y’all face the don, Jay-Z on” (Jayceon) – THE GAME
“Murder the club, told tag / Balenciagas, killing niggas, .44 mag / The body bag crew, coming soon to a club near you” – THE GAME
I would say it was a solid week for hip-hop with all these new barz and releases. MY FAVORITE THIS WEEK IS: KENDRICK LAMAR – “FEAR.”
If you hear any “barz” I should get on from new releases next week be sure to tweet me @IAMBNYCE with the lines. For now I’m SHINE’N OFF!
