He said borrow my jewels and bar the fools

cause I can't feel the field @#$$% chains
 though I covered mine, so I covered mine in bling
then I bumped into a bum and covered mine in shame
then I bumped into a hun and uncovered mine again
diamonds been underminded mayne, they give a !@**! with no mac another kinda game
see money talks in another kinda slang



I remember when I was 14 listening to this, thinking it was just a cool song, then this summer I bumped this on the bus, and played those lines over and over, and understood what he meant. My goodness, his lyricism is unmatched.

when they was all back of a @#$%@ like monachello
when the underworld had to be smarter than donatello
no honour amongst fellows
it's harder than sittin with a blind man and tryin to describe yellow
got me feelin like killer joe, my life the album
know the classics by heart and exactly how the filler go
repeat it on my way to the liquor store

Nasty

This part from Failure always has me


_ is scared of heights
This is saran wrap and aluminum foil
Some potpourri a little machine oil
I stack my paper and throw off my six?
This is top flo', better look out below
Pennys from heaven is the same as a semi from the sect
And I reign supreme
Turn your umbrellas upside down
Did you even catch the change in theme?



He goes form talking about throwing off the scent of drugs, to cents dropping from the top floor ( his top flow in rhyming
) (also why he mentioned heights in the 1st bar) ... The myth of dropping penny's from the top of the Empire State Building


I reign (rain because of the penny's falling) turn your umbrellas upside down to catch the penny's / cents (sense of his bars) ... Did you catch the theme?
