  • 1. 50 Cent “21 Questions” I just wanna chill and twist a lye Catch suns in my 7-45 You drive me crazy shorty I Need to see you and feel you next to me I provide everything you need and I Like your smile I don't wanna see you cry Got some questions that I got to ask and I Hope you can come up with the answers babe [Chorus] Girl, it’s easy to love me now would you love me if I was down and out? Would you still have love for me? Girl, it’s easy to love me now would you love me if I was down and out? Would you still have love for me girl? If I fell off tomorrow would you still love me? If I didn't smell so good would you still hug me? If I got locked up and sentenced to a quarter century, Could I count on you to be there to support me mentally? If I went back to a hoopty from a Benz, would you poof and disappear like some of my friends? If I was hit and I was hurt would you be by my side? If it was time to put in work would you be down to ride? I'd get out and peel a ***** cap and chill and drive I'm asking questions to find out how you feel inside If I ain't rap 'cause I flipped burgers at Burger King Would you be ashamed to tell your friends you feelin' me? In the bed if I used my tongue would you like that? If I wrote you a love letter would you write back? Now we can have a lil' drink you know a nightcap And we could go do what you like, I know you like that [Chorus] Now would you leave me if you're father found out I was thuggin'? Do you believe me when I tell you, you the one I'm loving? Are you mad 'cause I'm asking you 21 questions? Are you my soul mate? 'Cause if so, girl you a blessing Do you trust me enough, to tell me your dreams? I'm staring at ya' trying to figure how you got in them jeans If I was down would you say things to make me smile? I treat you how you want to be treated just teach me how If I was with some other chick and someone happened to see?
  • 2. And when you asked me about it I said it wasn't me Would you believe me? Or up and leave me? How deep is our bond if that's all it takes for you to be gone? We only humans girl we make mistakes, to make it up I do whatever it take I love you like a fat kid love cake You know my style I say anything to make you smile [Chorus] Could you love me in a Bentley? Could you love me on a bus? I'll ask 21 questions, and they all about us Could you love me in a Bentley? Could you love me on a bus? I'll ask 21 questions, and they all about us All he wants to do is just sit back and relax. Lye is slang for weed in New York where 50 comes from.To “stunt” is to show off; “catching stunts” involves a car, in this case a BMW 745. 50 plays on the car reference in the previous line by stating that the girl drives him crazy. A great hook from Nate the Don, it nicely summarizes the question that the song asks: if I weren’t rich and famous, would you still want to be with me? 50 knows that some of his so-called “friends” would dip out on him if he lost his money; he wants to know if this chick would be the same way. 50 needs his girl to be “down to ride” (willing to help) if he ever should need to “put in work” (sell “work”, i.e. drugs) 50 wants to know if his job would make her embarrassed to say that she’s taken.I find the “Burger King/feelin' me” rhyme a bit contrived, but charming fathers are typically over-protective of their daughters, especially if they don’t approve of their dating choices.50 wants to know if your love for him is strong enough to overcome objections from her father. To “thug” is to engage in criminal activities such as drug dealing and robbery He wishes to know if the woman truly loves him or if she’s just after him for his wealth. He wants her to ride with him regardless of his financial situation cause true love is not based on materialistic things
  • 3. Kanye west “Heartless” [Chorus] In the night, I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless... How could you be so heartless? Oh... How could you be so heartless? [Verse 1] How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo Just remember that you talkin' to me though You need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo I mean after all the things that we've been through I mean after all the things we got into Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain't told me Hey yo, I did some things but that's the old me And now you wanna get me back and you gon' show me So you walk around like you don't know me You got a new friend, while I got homies But in the end it's still so lonely [Chorus] In the night, I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless... How could you be so heartless? Oh... How could you be so heartless? [Verse 2] How could you be so Dr. Evil, you bringin' out a side of me that I dont know... I decided we weren't gon' speak so Why we up 3 A.M. on the phone Why does she be so mad at me fo' Homie I dont know, she's hot and cold I won't stop, won't mess my groove up 'Cause I already know how this thing go You run and tell your friends that you're leaving me They say that they don't see what you see in me You wait a couple months then you gon' see
  • 4. [Chorus] In the night, I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless... How could you be so heartless? Oh... How could you be so heartless? [Verse 3] Talkin', talkin', talkin', talk Baby let's just knock it off They don't know what we been through They don't know 'bout me and you So I got something new to see And you just gon' keep hatin' me And we just gon' be enemies I know you can't believe I could just leave it wrong And you can't make it right I'm gon' take off tonight Into the night.... [Chorus] In the night, I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless... How could you be so heartless? Oh... How could you be so heartless? In these first few lines, Kanye follows very subtly the entonation for the first couple of lines of Stevie Wonder’s “Part Time Lover”. Women can be cruel and cold like the winter sometimes He tells his girl when she’s shouting at him to remember who she’s talking to. Because he was the man she once loved. Being “heartless” means someone who is Devoid of compassion or feeling pitiless. Have no feelings for anyone, unkind, harsh, cruel or really just doesn’t care if they leave someone and break their heart You'll never find nobody better than me In the end, the heartless girl will figure out that Kanye coming into was the best thing that could have ever happened to her. Although Kanye uses a double negative here, it’s simply his dialect, and does not hint at any emotional confusion or contradicting feelings.
  • 5. Mr Hudson “Supernova” ft. Kanye west [Mr Hudson] Chorus: And I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova Before you make the biggest mistake of your life Just give me the chance to get it right Verse 1: They got it all They've got all the things I thought I wanted But I can't fall To fake anymore To live this facade and smile as the warm champagne pours Out on the lawn we'll pretend we're having tonnes of fun in this world where we don't belong Some bloke all alone Is she thinking of me Did she forget what we once had Chorus: And I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova Before you make the biggest mistake of your life Just give me the chance to get it right get it right [Kanye West] Verse 2: Oh they got it all you can see they got it all They got the cars the boat and the beautiful house by the shore And you know there's more But I can't take another minute of y'all He wants his kids and the dog He wants his breakfast in bed He's got his trust fund saved Not a worry in his head He's not you or me I wanna break up the scene and see you running back to me Chorus: Coz I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova Before you make the biggest mistake of your life
  • 6. Just give me a chance to get it right get it right Yeah I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova tonight Before you make the biggest mistake of your life Just give me a chance to get it right get it right [Mr Hudson] You've got it wrong if you say our love is gone You've got it wrong if you say our love is gone [Mr Hudson & Kanye West] You've got it wrong if you say our love is gone You've got it wrong if you say our love is gone [Mr Hudson] You've got it wrong if you say our love is gone (repeats in the background) [Kanye West] Yeah I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova Before you make the biggest mistake of your life Just give me a chance to get it right get it right [Mr Hudson & Kanye West] Yeah I feel like taking off Let me be your supernova tonight Before you make the biggest mistake of your life Just give me the chance to get it right get it right He says that he feels like taking off and says it like he is agitated and annoyed by what has happend and the he goes on to say “just give me the chance” he says this verse in pain and envy by saying “they’ve got it all”The relationship that Mr.Hudson is developing with the lady in question is driving him mad. Whatever he tries to doesn’t seem to work, so the only solution he has left is to leave the girl he loves to save himself from the torment
