MM rap cypher

Recommended Posts

Asalaamu Alaikum everyone,

 

A rap cypher is a continuous poem by multiple MC's/poets dropping their bars around a specific topic. Theres no real hard and fast rules except you have to stay on topic, but the poem will naturally evolve as different MC's/poets post up their bars.

 

The topic I'm going to start with is 'How Islam makes you feel'

 

It's amazing how I was a fetus and it was written,

but we grew up and we slowly fell into sinning,

the dunyah got in to us and we had street dreams,

we had our hustlers code that was the thiefs theme,

truth be told that was just an NY state of mind,

I had to reflect on my life so I had to take a halftime,

I saw that my life was burning out like Ether,

and I heard the message through a street preacher,

he was holding one mic saying 'only praise one God',

he said to me don't fair no one theres only one lord,

I pray for forgivness I think I'm gonna be alright,

hate me now but me and deen are still gonne be tight,

and I feel like I'm better than Ive ever been,

coz I'm sticking as hard as I can to my deen.

 

 

That's a quick sample inshallah, I'm sure many other pepole will post many better things inshallah!

 

Wa alaikum salaam

They ask if we're created by intelligent design-

I believe I was designed intelligently by the divine-

Who created mankind, who created the pen and made it write from the beginning of time-

Revealing the verses of worship, we're created as servants,

remain subservient for the ultimate purpose-

Slaves to His service, submit willingly, avoiding His curses-

Suffer the scorching furnace penetrating the surface of your epidermis-

I Studied the holy verses given to us in the Quran-

Knowledge passed on like a baton, to learn everything comes from Allah-

So I stay strong and constantly fight against the evils of shaytan-

Not an easy task where I'm from, a place where we fight for crumbs-

Where the rule of thumb is not to succumb to the streets and become obsolete-

Where we're stuck on the corner like our feet is buried deep in the concrete-

Learning of Allah is the basis, where the escape is-

Allah made the world spacious as a mercy from His many graces-

Made us his favorite creation because Allah is the most gracious-

read he said, i looked at him and copied him in verbatim

letter for letter till i knew them by grapes, gun and knife

i graduated at a young age, same time i learnt my abcs n sync

started from the back and made my way to fil

building blocks were set in soil and sealed

i wanted to run like mcmanaman or through the covers like anwar

down the years i would laugh at stan and become sensitised to war

the streets would change name but name dropping would define your sole

i knocked down the blocks myself, i was the hammer, the pliers and the stool

the journey goes on through the tunnels, the punctures and the point of no returns

i cleansed myself with water till it became habitually daily

my hands used to press for the flame, i watched it let it burn

live the wildlife, see the bees share from the nectar

the cocoons become butterflys and leave the roads to tar

some return to get closure on the scars

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh snappppppppppppppppppppppppppp!!! Both are awesome!!!! So cooooooooooool!!! :wow:

 

Are you going to drop something or are you going to be a tourist?

 

 

Ever since I started Loving Allah there's no sad tomorrow,

steadily trying to become closer to Him and unlearn sorrow,

weary of my watch because theres no time left to borrow,

I look at my life and know there's no other road to follow,

but change and its implications is such a bitter pill to swallow,

especially since I have to admit I had the arrogance of Pharaoh,

but the change was so refreshing like receiving new bone marrow,

I praise God for getting me out because the escape was so narrow,

less like the great escape and more like captain Jack Sparrow,

I'm not trying to run I'm trying to go like a brand new Camaro,

So I'm trying to stack ajar and less worried about stacking dinero.

Nice....I guess it's my turn..

 

 

Before I was a student of knowledge I was a student of carnage-

The dunya I paid homage cause the shaytan kept me in bondage-

what'll it take to open our eyes and realize what his whispers sound like?-

Ive killed him hundreds of times but in my heart he won't die-

For as long we keep the dunya in mind he'll find ways to stay alive-

They say the devil's greatest trick is making us believe he doesn't exist-

But even he believes Allah is infinite, we simply live in ignorance-

Ignorant in Allah's power to forgive, ignorant at how He allows us to live-

The reason we even exist is because Allah simply said "Be" and it is-

Knowledge is widespread yet made thin like a piece of paper-

Fools who wait for a human savior, doubt the true Essence of the Creator-

ohhhh snapppppp again! Deep!

 

Are you going to drop something or are you going to be a tourist?

 

I have a lot to say, just can't make it rhyme. Maybe I'll write a book instead. -_-

So for now it's just window shopping. :whistle:

... And now I talk about the influence of the number one hater

 

Lifes so fruitless without Islam

I feel so useless with little or no Iman

I'm no big shot, I'm no Barry Bonds

But yet I'm hitting balls out the park being pitched by Shaytan

 

What a clear enemy you are to me

I don't know how much more I can despise thee

Swaying me off track because you wanna ride with me?! Oh Please!

You're just a jealous arrogant hater wanting to see me bleed

 

So I continue the cypher, writing these ryhmes

not to use the typer for the sake of writing a few lines

but to continue to understand I should rather spend time to please the One Divine

and to not be so weak so as to follow the whisperings of the accursed one,

The path of Islam will inshAllah leave me in the company of those who have won

this test of life, so when Shaytan throws me a curve ball, the opposite direction I shall run.

^^Niiiiice mc MC!!

 

K, my turn

 

coolside all up in my face askin if I'm a tourist

acting like I'm on trial and he's the jurist

well I got news for you coolside

my rap could win over by a landslide

ha, i'm trippin, these words seem like I just smoked weed

if I said them out loud, could make your ears bleed

halfway across the world I just made him grimace

made him wonder watagwan what the heck is this

while I'm at it, I might as well confess

Google helped me rhyme up this whole mess

so what if I'm not a good rap teller

I write one book and be a bestseller.

 

Over and out. B)

i seen you at the corner of my eye

you been watching me since before i opened the door

a blank look, a puzzled saw,

you jump up or should i

door closed, i can feel the stare

i can see you there, eyes wide shut

let me open up the window, get some air

two set of footsteps, one set of prints

x ray vision, still dont get the hint

interference fainting away, numbing serenity

^^ lol

 

This is kinda cliche and sucks so I'm putting in a spoiler. I had fun writing it nonetheless. :dance:

 

 

 

I call it 'Good Girls Finish Last' [lol]

 

Back in h.s., trying to be good, hijab paving the way

Boy takes one look and runs away

Crush on a boy, seeking attention

But he wouldn't look twice, my name wasn't mentioned

Fast forward to college, oh look at her, she's changed

Same boy now wants to know my name

Trying to play that love game

The only price to pay is going to hell in chains

Now I ask me, why does he really like me?

Is it me on the inside, or what his eyes can see?

I conclude finally, if he can't see my inner qualities,

Then he sure as heck don't deserve to see anymore of me.
