A quick description of what Inside The Lines will be before we get into it:
Our illustrator at OogeeWogee, Michael White, has a gift at bringing ideas and visions to life in a tangible way where we can see, on paper (or on screen), what was merely a thought a short time before. With that said, lyrics has a way of painting vivid pictures and images with mere spoken word and as critical listeners of the art, many of us tend to visualize these lyrics and can literally see what these rappers are saying. – Danny Chung
Inside The Lines is a series where we take some of rap’s most vivid lyrics and translate them into an illustrated visual. This is a place where we can see with our ears and listen with our eyes.

“Time for me to voice my opinion of not even pretendin she didn’t have me
Strung like a chicken, chase my tail like a doggie
She was kind of like a star, thinking I was like a fan
Dude, she looked good, down side: she had a man
He was a rooty-toot, a nincompoop
She told me soon your little birdie’s gonna fly the coop
She was a flake like corn, and I was born not to understand
By lettin her pass I had proved to be a better man”
