Hip hop metaphors [if you're bored]

i'm sure all of you hip hop fans know I Used To Love H.E.R. by Common, and how he used a woman as a metaphor for hip hop.

i just listened to Centaur by Buck 65, and it brought so much more depth to the track. I mean, at i first i heard it, and i thought this sucks. Then a friend told me, listen to it again, and think of the Centaur as hip hop

Slug did this by acting as if he dated a girl named Lucy Ford (Lucifer), and many of his tracks were 'love'/'hate' songs about her...

Sage Francis did this with Write, Rewrite, and Threewrite

Check these out if you're bored, and if you dig hip hop, otherwise, don't waste your time

here's a zip of these mp3's


Buck 65 - Centaur

Common - I Used To Love H.E.R.

Atmosphere - **** You Lucy

Atmosphere - Don't Ever ****ing Question That

Sage Francis - Rewrite

Sage Francis - Threewrite
