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.
I guess that was her first hit, at least the one that brought her to the top in many countries and she totally deserves it! I give her my whole appreciation for the way she's presenting -and representing- the women through her songs, like completely independent, proud and strong, complete badasses at times - when needed.
There is something really nostalgic, sad and lonely about this song, like she's going through a hard period in her life and the sound of the rain on her window is dragging her deeper into it. Driving on the open road, being close to the sea always eases the soul.
Another great song by RZA, referring to what he's speaking of in the intro - love. Simple lyrics but true, great collaboration with Xavier Naidoo and a chilling tempo that fits both voices. All together gives me this warm feeling in my heart while praising the beauty of love.
