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.
The song Blow your Mind was Reggie “Redman” Noble’s debut single off of his fist album “Whut? Thee Album”. The song included samples from James Brown, Parliament, Zapp, Gap Band and Sly & the Family Stone.
Ha, let me get busy with the funky fly stuff
Cause I cut your freakin’ eyes, fuck Bruce Willis because I die rough
It’s the Funkadelic Redman and I hit ya with the
Funkadelic level, the P-Funk, the devil
The spectacular, Blackula, bust holes like Dracula
Loaded of course, more Legend than Acura
I’m swift, I like big spliffs so I tisk tisk a tasket
Plus keep the Glock in my basket
I cough up a lung cause I freak it with the tongue
Cause I can ‘Wax on! Wax off!’ like Daniel-son
Do the yea yea, boogey say up jump the boogey
To the boogey to the boogey thanks to E cause he hooked me
So fuck what ya heard, word to herb, cause I mac-
A-frama-lama, plus I kick the grammar, straight from, New Jers’
It’s the renegade rap Redman, really who rip rhymes in rough mode
Yo, hold your breath while I explode!
Redman – Blow your mind
