Great Moments in Lyricism...Pusha-T (Clipse)

The Clipse - The Funeral (2nd verse)


Though both brothers have lyrics for days, as Thomas posted in the comments, Pusha is head and shoulders above his brother. Picking a Pusha verse to post was no easy task. He has too many classic verses to count. I didn't want to post something from the official albums or the Got it 4 cheap tapes so I had to reach back. This track is the last track on their unrealeased debut, Exclusive Audio Footage. It may not be up there with his later mastrpieces, but it is still superior to 99 percent of the verses ever put to DAT.

Hold me high Gucci suit and tie
Let my casket reach the sky tell my girl dont cry
Just sing me a lullabye and let the white doves fly
Cuz I heard from a bird its only sleep when you die
Break me in unison outside is right thru the lens
My mother cried cuz she knew that I was only true to sin
Celebrate my passing with gun shots and systems blasting
Blown up posters of Terror held by children laughing
No matter how foul my burial open casket
Now simply so they can see my clusters and my diamonds smiling
Im sorry I failed only cuz the ones I left were so real
For me my doggs will lie, die, shoot, cry, or kill
First to Malice sorry that I left you half in a hole
But now you'll write for both of us I'll channel thoughts thru your soul
Emmanuelle remember this when you see my nemesis
Draw my picture on his chest and make his family reminisce
Revenge so sweet and I crush you with the heat
Your the first one I call when its time to put em to sleep
Now Pharrel grand dragon horns stabbing the skys
Turn Mag' em laser tag em couldnt sever all ties
My final request on the day im layed to rest
Take my body to the ocean and have a water front ves'
This will be my burial this eulogy will be in stereo
Blue Angels will draw my face in smoke during an aerial

I'm not sure why this never came out. When the "Funeral" dropped everybody I knew was waitin.

I'll have to get this off the hard drive tonight and give it another listen.
