‘Piru this Piru that’

No this is not a diss to those whom are in a gang, let alone the Bloods since the title of this article is ‘Piru this Piru that’. Yet it comes a time when certain words, slangs, or what have you take away from the content of an artist’s song or verse. Example, take a record that seems to have no profanity on it. Then all of a certain, the artist says ‘sh@%’. Now before you remember any other line from that song, ‘sh@%’ is what’s going to stand out. This leads me to Lil Wayne’s verse on ‘Strange Clouds’, which is a joint lifted from Atlanta, GA rapper B.O.B. (Grand Hustle) upcoming sophomore studio album. I was riding with Weezy for a minute, yet was thrown off when he stated yelling out ‘PIRU, GANGSTAS, OUTLAWZ’..

Am I dissing Weezy or the bloods? No. This is about music and the power that it has to keep, lose, or shift your listeners attention. There are plenty great artist that either throw up their set or claim what they are banging in their songs (Snoop Dogg, Daz, Kurupt, Game) to name a few. Yet with seasoned artist like Snoop, Daz & Kurupt (Tha Dogg Pound), they understand the elements of musical format. Therefore when they claim Tha Dogg Pound, 20 Crip, etc., it doesn’t throw off their audience or listeners. In actually, for a hot second, it makes you feel like you’re crippin. That’s the power that music has.
