4. “Literally unimpressed/with who y’all pick to be the best/so if I’m choosing where to aim it’ll be his head/to kill whoever’s nice––now chivalry is dead.” –Joe Budden
Breakdown: Mr. Budden already isn’t in line with whom hip-hop’s consensus has deemed the cream of the MC crop. Hypothetically speaking, he tells that an effort to exterminate the anointed would incline him to attempt a headshot. Hip-hop refers to the highly skilled lyricist as “nice.” Niceness is a characteristic imbued in the act of chivalry. If the “nice” MC is shot in the head (lyrically speaking) than chivalry will be deceased.
