"Real Gs move in silence...  Reply with quote  

...like lasagna,”

Line of the year or phonetically incorrect? Let there be no gray area here. Choose a side!

Also I'm ashamed to admit I didn't catch this on my first couple of listens to this song, which is basically "A Millie" part2.

Quote:

Lil Wayne’s coronation as a trustworthy heroin brand aside, it’s the recently released Tha Carter IV preview single “6’7” that’s had most people slinging “dope” (apologies)—in particular the line “Real Gs move in silence like lasagna,” which is the sort of lyric that immediately leaps out not only for its clever wordplay, but for working the word “lasagna” into a hip-hop song. However, while people like rapper Joe Budden (“silly, but really dope”) to BET producer Carl Chery (“pretty dope”) have already sung its praises, it seems not everyone’s into it: It makes Questlove feel old, for example, while various hip-hop blogs and commenters have deemed it a “dope idea, poor execution”—chiefly because, as some have argued, the “G” in “lasagna” isn’t really silent.

So you're not feeling the line and/or the little discusion about it? I dunno I can dig the nerd factor at work here. This is bascially what the blogosphere (sorry for using that word) does I guess.

Lil Wayne has many lines of this variety. I feel bad for people who don't get him.

God damn. Are we really such uneducated and stupid motherfuckers that people are trying to argue that the g in lasagna is a silent g? Silent letters are really silent, that is, they don't contribute ANY sound to the word's pronunciation. The g in fucking lasagna does contribute to the pronunciation, creating the ny sound. Not only does wayne not get that, the av club post doesn't get it either. They start off ok, then backpedal and say this: "But still, that doesn’t mean Lil Wayne is wrong, as there’s clearly no “G” sound in the word’s pronunciation—so he should get off on a technicality here."

Actually, yes, yes you shitty fucking blog he is wrong, and there is a g sound in the fucking word, it just happens to not be the g sound you were looking for evidently.

I didn't even understand the line and was trying to figure out what lasagna was a reference too until I read the blurb and realized lil wayne was just dumb and really meant lasagna.

Seems sound for an avclub blurb. But seriously, since when are punchlines expected to be tautological and/or flawless in their logic? You hear the line, you chuckle or you don't, and round and round we go. Or, when you're chillin with the brosephs and someone breaks out the line you're that individual who says "Well actually pallies, the 'g' in lasagna'..."

Some of us choose the left hand path, some of us right out the crack vial to the golden gate.

I missed that lasagna line. Well, I did hear him say "lasagna" and was hoping it was going to be a Garfield reference. But I didn't hear "Garfield". A little disappointed.

I think it's hysterical that Garfield is a fat cat that eats lasagna. Of all of the foods for a cat to like, lasagna is by far the funniest. Jim Davis, my cap is doffed to you, sir.

I used to work with this guy that had a pet rat named Bandit. Bandit liked lasagna, but not regular lasagna, he liked Alaskan Lasagna. Alaskan lasagna is made with American cheese.
One day he came in with a t-shirt with a picture of Bandit eating Alaskan lasagna on it.

Wasn't he suppose to be Italian? Thus explaining his affinity for lasagna.

Well.. Cats like milk.. even though it gives most of 'em irritable bowels.
Ricotta, one of the main ingredients of lasagna, is basically boiled milk with acid thrown in..

And lasagna is also browned ground beef.. another thing cats crave (cats can't live without red meat or fish cuz they need creatine)..

So it's not really that far fetched..


Back when I was a kid, I fell asleep drunk once with two unwrapped uneaten tacos on the coffee table.. the next morning i woke up to a couple empty corn shells and wrappers,,




and i like the Weezy line...

I'm not feeling the line. I don't get it, but I don't get Lil' Wayne either.
