The Week to Come: Boston wins Game 1 in LA. BEAT L-A!
Still wondering about Jay-Z’s triple entendre… but thats just me.
@ B. Payton
It was all in his opening line.
I don’t believe that’s a triple entendre, pretty sure it’s one word or phrase that can be taken three ways. Not one word or sylable used three ways.
“Owwww (hey)/hoes turn they neck like owwwww (owls)/I’m the man of the ow…(hour)”
I spy 3.
Shit like that is why American Gangster…
He rhymed Oww-Owl-Hour, making all sound like the same word w/ clearly different meanings
Well I guess TC got here 1st so, I’ll just go back to drawing up X’s O’s for Boston’s practice on Monday
Oh dear, it seems Jigga’s sunk to Lil B depths of lyricism with this one, because no matter how you twist it owl and hour are different words that only sound slightly alike if you completely mangle their pronounciation. A Double entendre would involve using a word or phrase has more than one meaning. So what Hov has managed to do here is sound like an illiterate bellend.
Jay’s a pseudo-monster of the triple-entendres
@ don king
Did you hear the song?
“I’mma make you see LA/UCLA like Ed O’Bannon” © Ras Kass
classic double-entendre by one of LA’s dopest lyricists
“Con Edison flow, I’m connected to a higher power
Bright lights will make your whole city light up
A trillion-watt light bulb, when I’m in the nightclub”
Yeah, I heard it – what he did wasn’t anything remotely comparable to a double (or triple) entendre. He said three different things (one of which isn’t even a word) which, if mispronounced sound similar.
I’m sure he could do a triple pun on the word ‘be’, since Bey is also his other half. For the record I’m a Jay stan, to me he’s the greatest ever, but he’s slipped up here, and being a grammatical pedant I’ll be swift to draw attention to this shortcoming.
Wordplay is wordplay and it’s always respected but that Jay line is weak.
LA All Day!
You see those jumpers Kobe was hitting at the end of the 4th, you like that Alvin Gentry
first chris then kanye….jay is a swagger jacker.
kanye is the first rapper i ever saw that would mispronounce words like that to make it rhyme…thats like kanyes style. his trademark.
^ lol, Alvin Gentry likey, A LOT. so much he was grinning on the sidelines
A lot of rappers have always done that, it’s nothing new really. The one comparison I completely agree with that got brought up lately is Drake and Kanye
This conversation went over my head with Jay-Z being brought up. Did I miss something in this post?
^ lol, anything goes in the TWTW wrap-up posts.
it started with comment #3 going forward
smh @ this “triple entendre” talk
*simulates retard by bending arm like chicken wing and tucking in into chest*
^see dat triple ‘entendre’ (huh, triple “metaphore”, i mean).
Hov didn’t do ish like this !!?
peace tho. Owwww
