Eazy-E – Real Muthaphuckkin G’s – Lyrics

Intro

Compton, Compton, Compton
Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s
Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s
Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s
Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s

Verse 1 – Eazy-E

Hey yo, Doctor, here’s another proper track
And it’s phat, watch the sniper, time to pay the piper
And let that real shit provoke
See, you’s a wannabe ‘loc, and you’ll get smoked, and I hope
That your fans understand when you talk about sprayin’ me
The same records that you makin’ is payin’ me
Motherfuck Dre! Motherfuck Snoop! Motherfuck Death Row!
Yo, and here comes my left blow
‘Cause I’m the E-A-Z-Y-E and this is the season
To let the real motherfuckin’ G’s in
You’re like a kid, you found a pup, and now you’re dapper
But tell me, where the fuck you found an anorexic rapper?
Talkin’ ’bout who you gon’ squabble with and who you shoot
You’re only sixty pounds when you’re wet and wearin’ boots
(Damn, E, they tried to fade you on Dre Day)
But Dre Day only meant Eazy’s payday
All of a sudden Dr. Dre is the G Thang
But on his old album cover he was a she-thang
So, nigga please, nigga please
Don’t step to these muthaphuckkin’ real G’s

Chorus

Stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless
Yo, Dre! (What’s up?)
Boy, you should’ve known by now

Verse 2 – Dresta

Every day it’s a new rapper claimin’ to be dapper than the Dresta
Softer than a bitch but portray the role of gangsta
Ain’t broke a law in your life
Yet every time you rap you yap about the guns and knife
Just take a good look at the nigga and you’ll capture
The fact that the bastard is simply just an actor
Who mastered the bang and the slang and the mental
Of niggas in Compton, Watts, and South Central
Never ever once have you ran with the turf
But yet in every verse claim you used to do the dirt
But tell me, who’s a witness to your fuckin’ work?
So you never had no bid’ness, so save the drama, jerk!
Niggas straight kill me, knowin’ that they pranksters
This is goin’ out to you studio gangstas
See, I did dirt, put in work, and many niggas can vouch that
So since I got stripes, I got the right to rap about that
But niggas like you, I gotta hate ya
‘Cause I’m just tired of suburbia niggas
Talkin’ about they come from projects
Knowin’ you ain’t seen the parts of the streets, G
Wearin’ khakis and mob while you rhyme
Little fag tried to sag, but you’re floodin’ at the same time
And your set don’t accept ya; scared to kick it with your homies
‘Cause you know they don’t respect ya
So, nigga please, check nuts
Before you step to these muthaphuckkin’ real G’s

Verse 3 – B.G. Knocc Out

Well, it’s the Knocc Out, definition “Original baby gangsta”
Approach me like you hard, motherfucker, I’ma bank ya
Shank ya, with my fuckin’ shank, if I have to
Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg are fuckin’ actors
Pranksters, studio gangstas, busters
But this time you’re dealin’ with some real motherfuckers
G’s, nigga please, don’t try to step
‘Cause if you do, then a pealed cap is all that would be left
See, young niggas like me will break you off somethin’
Claimin’ my city — but Dre, you ain’t from Compton
Niggas like y’all is what I call wannabes
And ain’t shit compared to real muthaphuckkin’ G’s

Chorus

Stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless
Yo, Dre! (What’s up?)
Boy, you should’ve known by now

Verse 4 – Eazy-E

I never met a O.G. who never did shit wrong
You tried to diss the Eazy-E, so now, nigga, it’s on
You and your Doggy Dogg think that y’all hoggin’ shit
Both of you bitches can come and suck my Doggy dick
Beatin’ up a bitch don’t make you shit, but then again
Some niggas think it makes a man
Damn, it’s a trip how a nigga could switch so quick
From wearin’ lipstick to smokin’ on chronic at picnics
And now you think you’re bigger
But to me you ain’t nothin’ but a bitch-ass nigga
That ain’t worth a food stamp
And at Death Row, I hear you gettin’ treated like boot camp
Gotta follow your sergeant’s directions
Or get your ass pumped with the Smith & Wesson
Learn a lesson from the Eaze
Stay in your place and don’t step to real muthaphuckkin’ G’s

Chorus

Stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless
Yo, Dre! (What’s up?)
Boy, you should’ve known by now
Stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless
Yo, Dre! (What’s up?)
Boy, you should’ve known by now
Stop him in his tracks, show him that I am Ruthless
Yo, Dre! (What’s up?)
Boy, you should’ve known by now: Eazy Duz It

 

Eazy-E – Real Muthaphuckkin G’s – Lyrics analysis & meanings

Intro

Compton, Compton, Compton

Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s

At this point, after STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON and FUCK THA POLICE, we have already met a whole gallery of motherfuckers.

Yet Eazy in general tends to want to innovate, so here is the magic word again, with the exact spelling you need when you don’t intend to teach Moral Philosophy at Stanford: muthaphuckkin. It ‘s like motherfucker, with three extra faults, so that you really understand that your spelling rules, your English language that you are so proud of, and even your mother, all that the author fucks it. In Shakespeare’s day things were not so clear.

And so this time the motherfucker creature is a G. What’s that?

Greek? Gay? G-dot, Gravity? Good? Game?

Naaahhh… G is a secret code name that means gangsta. Only real G’s understand, and you’re not a G.

All this is a form of self-description, since here, apparently the real muthaphuckkin G’s have a language of their own, which you do not understand, which excludes you as your language excluded them. In fact, the author makes you live his experience of a dominated language speaker, so you can know what it is. If you do not understand, you’re probably American or English.

Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s

Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s

Ahh, real muthaphuckkin G’s

 

Verse 1 – Eazy-E

Hey yo, Doctor, here’s another proper track

Hey yo, Doctordirect address, but not to us as often, but to someone else, someone we know, an old friend: the Doctor, aka Dr. Dre, the ex-colleague of Eazy-E in NWA. To sum up their mess:

  • In 1986, Eazy-E and Jerry Heller found Ruthless records, hip-hop label.
  • In 1986, Eazy-E invites Dr Dre to found N.W.A. with him and a 3rd rapper named Arabian prince. Then Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella join them and Arabian Prince leaves the band.
  • In 1988, they release the LP Straight outta Compton.
  • In 1989, Ice Cube leaves the band after contract and money conflicts
  • In 1991, four-member NWA (Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren, DJ Yella) released a second album, on which is a brief interlude (“skit”) entitled MESSAGE TO BA, where NWA violently attacks Ice Cube.
  • Ice Cube responds the same year and attacks all his ex-colleagues in a diss-song, a slanderous and defamatory song, NO VASELINE.
  • NWA then responds on his album Niggaz4Life by attacking Ice Cube again.
  • In 1992, Dr Dre leaves the band N.W.A. and the label Ruthless records, to start his own label, Death row, and revives the war on his first album, The Chronic, on which he attacks Eazy-E in his diss-song, FUCK WITH DRE DAY  (AND EVERYBODY’S CELEBRATIN’).
  • In 1993, Eazy-E fights back with this REAL MUTHAFUCKKIN’ G’S diss-song against Dre.
  • The conflict will only go away with the death of Eazy-E in 1995, and this series of defamatory songs will continue in a series of songs of reconciliation.

One more track: yes, Dre could have thought that without him, Eazy would not continue making music, but Eazy went off alone, and as a revenge he swung his new track in the face of his former producer. It’s hostile, it’s rebellious, it’s aggressive and sly, it’s Eazy all spit.

And it’s phat, watch the sniper

Phat rather than fat, it’s like a parody of spelling, like painting gold on a garbage can to make it look like… like… like it’s painted gold, fool! It’s phantasy, not phantastic but not phamiliar, it makes phun of this bullshit spelling, and Authorities that go with it, which the author contests.

Watch the sniper: After the explosion of NWA, Ice Cube and Dre having left the group, Eazy-E made a solo career, like a sniper.

Pay the piper: this piper comes from THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN, an old German tale in which a musician, poorly treated by the inhabitants of a village, returns the year after to avenge himself, seduces all the children with the charming music of his pipe, to lead them to a cave, lock them in and let them die in it. This reference identifies Eazy with the Piper: if we do not pay him, he will come back to kill the youth with his music:)

This Piper has been evoked countless times in rap lyrics… Like… does this remind you of something?

“Best believe somebody’s paying the pied piper”.

Guessed it? It’s Eminem in LOSE YOURSELF.

And let that real shit provoke

We do not know 100% what this real shit is, it can be this rap, or this singer, who makes fun of his own image, or this Doctor that can be provoked to make fun of him too.

See, you’ve got a wannabe ‘loc, and you’ll get smoked, and I hope

So he challenges him the status of leader – that Dre actually had in NWA as a producer and DJ and singer.

A loc is a boss in the slang of the Crips gang.

That your fans understand when you talk about sprayin ‘me

The same records that you makin’ is payin’ me

Eazy very deliberately attacks Dre’s reputation with his fans, and ironizes that he still gets royalties from him, acting as if it were a form of theft (but unfortunately for Eazy, this argument is bogus, abusive).

Motherfuck Dre! Motherfuck Snoop! Motherfuck Death Row!

This is a very clear verse, insult to Dre, his new rap partner Snoop Dogg, and their Death Row label.

Yo, and here comes my left blow

This verse emphasizes the fact that the previous one was a punchline, a striking and particularly aggressive verse.

‘Cause I’m the EAZY-E and this is the season

cause: well, well, it’s always the same author so always the same logic of cause-without-cause. It’s like that because it’s like that (and because Eazy likes to believe he’s always the strongest, and that strength does not need reason).

To let the real motherfuckin’ G’s in
