"I'm an animal/Half man, half mammal." - Jay-Z
Song: "Already Home" (2009)
Album: The Blueprint 3
First off, Jigga establishes that he is not a man but an animal. But then, he claims he is in fact, half of a man. And then he asserts that he's a half mammal which means he could be either a human being or a variety of animals that are categorized as mammals. What we're trying to say here is that we are confused.
Too much. Guy's still poetic (and can still pull out multisyllabic rhyme schemes, clever wordplay, and double entrendres/metaphors) and his two most recent mixtapes have been good (Georgetown Press was an interesting concept & Barry Sanders is loaded with sports punchlines) but Wale used to be on some real thoughtprovoking level
Hopefully The Album About Nothing is a nice 16 track album that proves to the casuals that Wale isn't just the guy who makes love songs.

"And I'll be damned if I co-sign a old snitch/That was gangbanging when Jaws was a goldfish." - Lloyd Banks
Song: "Ain't No Click" (2004)
Album: The Hunger For More
A goldfish is a goldfish and a shark is a shark. A goldfish cannot grow up and become a shark. Just like a turtle can't grow up and become a king cobra and Lloyd Banks can't grow up and become a relevant rapper again.
