Lauren Hill的一首歌

Lauryn Hill的一首歌,歌名是Everything Is Everything

我一直很欣賞這首歌

但限於英文程度,大概只能理解40%的歌詞

尤其是Rap部分雖然有很認真的去查單字

但還是覺得不能理解其中想表達的一些背後涵義

所以想請高手幫指點Rap這部分

Rap歌詞如下:

I philosophy

Possibly speak tongues

Beat drum, Abyssinian, street Baptist

Rap this in fine linen, from the beginning

My practice extending across the atlas

I begat this

Flipping in the ghetto on a dirty mattress

You can't match this rapper slash actress

More powerful than two Cleopatras

Bomb graffiti on the tomb of Nefertiti

MCs ain't ready to take it to the Serengeti

My rhymes is heavy like the mind of sister Betty (Betty Shabazz!)

L-Boogie spars with stars and constellations

Then came down for a little conversation

Adjacent to the king, fear no human being

Roll with cherubims to Nassau Coliseum

Now hear this mixture, where Hip Hop meets scripture

Develop a negative into a positive picture

希望有高手能"完整的"指點"背後的文化涵義"

感恩啊

    說清楚壹一點:

    MCs(知名饒舌手)還不敢將"它"引進賽倫蓋提

    它代表的是Lauren Hill的風格

    整首RAP的含意就是她很自大, 認為沒人比的過她
