Nonsense Rap Lyrics
I guess it's official: now there's a blog for everything. Snacks and shit is blog dedicated to making fun of ridiculous rap lyrics, inspired by the Jay-Z song "Hey Papi," which includes the ridiculous line "no room service / just snacks and shit." The blog's proprietors explain:
This blog is about rap and hip-hop lyrics that are absolutely absurd, ludicrous, nonsensical, ridiculous, basic, basically stupid, basically bad, basically basic, or preposterous. We also take some lines and examine them literally. In the words of one of our critics, we are "willfully obtuse". Call it what you want. Hopefully we don't get capped. You have to understand that we really do love rap and all of these artists that we kid about.
In any case, here are a few of our favorite examples.
Yung Joc: "Hundred dollar bill, that's a C-note. You got ten of 'em, then that's a G-note."
(Nope. That's 10 C-notes.)
Kanye West: "I live by two words, "F**k you, pay me".
(That's four words.)
E 40: "I'ma be the first hustler that set up shop on Jupiter."
The bloggers write: Nobody is going to do business with you on Jupiter.

Young Jeezy: "They know I got that broccoli, so I keep that glock on me."
("Broccoli" is slang for one's stash. Yes this makes sense, but as a rhyme it's undeniably silly.)
Pharrell Williams: "Make your chest look just like some pizza."
The bloggers quip: So, you're going to shoot me and I'm going to have holes in my chest and those holes are going to look like pepperoni... ?
This is kind of... a stretch.

Nas: "I never sleep, 'cause sleep is the cousin of death."
(This is poetic, but absolutely untrue.)
