By: 12.15.11


“Rap warlord, stay on point, like a scoreboard
Coming to get everything I worked for
Never been a church boy, but always knew God
Played the game hard never took nothing likely
Stumbled any nigga trying to fight me, I’m not the pushover type, see
I will come back with thunder and lightning
Played under rain storms, hard times I came from
It’s hot on your side?
Well nigga it’s the same sun
Hustle from the same bag, delivery be A-1
I ain’t never lost one since stolen crumb
Back on my Herc ish
Lion skin, long club, that’s what I’m working with
Stronger than you other kids, wide-eyed lens
Focused on my weight gain, Lou Ferrigno chisel man
Ain’t nothing really changed, I’m just cleaning up now
Tossing out you weaklings, c-c-coming for you haters
I hear everything you speaking
Raps like high school
That’s why I dropped out, I rather do home school
I’m better not around you, lames be the downfall
To a wise leader and a good friend
I step away before I let you niggas kill my legend
Ain’t a blood type to specimen like him
I must be…Hercules”

Stalley on “Hercules” from the mixtape, Lincoln Way Nights: Intelligent Trunk Music

The Greek/Roman god of tough guy things even had to get his weight up to spot Stalley’s verbal bench press this year. It has become commonplace—and convenient, and complacent if we’re looking to complete the “C” trifecta, for rappers to fatten up their bars with aimless quotes of how much weed they smoke or condoms wrappers they (allegedly) discard throughout the week. There was a time when those bars were reserved for braggadocio of the muscular variety and that time is here once again. Elevate the game. — TC
