Thoughts on Songs with Busta Rhymes
This makes me think of one, single thing. That Busta Rhymes could be the hip hop side of Black Sabbath, crazy as it sounds but true if you compare their content with his content. This is a hell of sampling though and matching of artists of irrelevant scenes! Thumbs up!
I think this "what we gon' do?Do it to death" is more like an existential question, what we're gonna do in our life, so response to this is to live it, to the extremes, till death comes. There is not any further hidden meaning in all this, so we shouldn't try to demystify life and waste our time . This is why common scenes of everyday life are described in the rest of the song.
