Dynasty / Camp Lo – Luchini -

Science dropped by Martini & Jopparelli. Dec-22-2006


Almost everything was dope ten years ago. We were in the golden era and Hip Hop was terrific! Everybody was used to new groups with great talent. That was so normal. You could not even picture a different scenario. So have such a brilliant music was usual and taken for granted. But despite that, when Camp Lo blew up, i was like damn, they got unique sound, they got unique style, they got unique flow, they even dress like nobody else. You can hardly compare them with others groups. They definitely brought new flava in the air. So enjoy the  video, the lyrics and listen to the original sampled song. They are the most underrated rap group of the 90s as my man Joppa stated in his top 10.



Check the lyrics:

Intro:This is it (What?!)
Luchini pourin’ from the sky
Lets get rich (What?!)
The cheeky vines
The sugar dimes
Cant quit (What?!)
Now pop the cork and steam the vega
And get lit (What?! What?! What?!)

Verse One:

Introducin’ phantom of the dark
Walk through my heaven with levitation
From efficient
and these leathers showboatin with Rugars
Flash vines Belafonte vigga
Lets get for what it’s worth
As we confiscate your figgas

Cassanova brown levitatin jiggy in da shiggy’s
In la hotta Car 54 chasin diamond runners
Headin ice bound, where every chilla dime can get
Your Harlem buck strut freezin world hice Hollywood
Madame Butterfly let me in your house of pleasure
From the knuckle swat shadowboxin catchin black-eye blues

I play the deef (What?!)
Sensations at the Monte Barbie screamin (Cheeba!)
For fillin pleasures at my castles (Blow the smoke out!)
The boss of Vegas substitutes when the Dutch is gone
The Lo don’t stop give me shouts
Its the season sauters
Souflers for swervin no corners
We magnets to moolah
Livin wit Charlie’s Angels hornets
No smilin were slidin
That gets you caught up in the octa
Or deaded for movin
Its just like that as we proceed

Saturday night special better take it lightly Ja-Jiyah
A happy time quest to the coast of Key Largo wire-ah
The chain gang keep your ears out for our years
Sippin’ fountain root house of bamboo paradise

Chorus: repeat 2X

This is it (What?!)
Luchini pourin’ from the sky
Lets get rich (What?!)
The cheeky vines
The sugar dimes
Cant quit (What?!)
Now pop the cork and steam the vega
And get lit (What?!)
[1st time] This is it (What?!)
[2nd time] (What?! What?!)

Verse Two:

For these feral herds of seas of black cheese that I can’t missa
Silky Days, satin nights taken flights down
We sensation spanish flyin with the lady Scarface
Bottoms up sunshine.. Love Potion Number 9

And we headin from the magic city chessin this sweet
On your orifachiny in London
Relaxation in Bora Bora
Got notion to bring it… sing it
Love up in my function
Stonin… robbin
We hiestin merchandise and gunnin
Love it… leave it
But bless the war chief or his bison
Get it… got it
The Lo will forever be nicin

Yeah; the Sonny Cheeba he be sippin Armaretta
The Geechie Gracious he be sippin Armaretta
We float the tri-state drink in this satin vines
This Coolie High jack pack from the sugar shack
Then what we do after we sip the Armaretta
We start the Harlem River quiver
Dig it sweet daddy
Sharpen the crimson blade
High sierra seranade
Anatomy for seduction be this here

Enter the place with grace
Jersey Armaretta the burstin of clouds
It pours.. everything seems better
Or flats with love we move
Only in the mist
Its Lo its life
And we can’t get enough of this

Chorus: repeat 2X

This is it (What?!)
Luchini pourin’ from the sky
Lets get rich (What?!)
The cheeky vines; the sugar dimes
Cant quit (What?!)
Now pop the cork and steam the vega
And get lit (What?!)
[1st time] This is it (What?!)
[2nd time] This is it (What?!) (x2)


The Sonny Cheeba he be sippin Armaretta
The Geechy Gracious he be sippin Armaretta
The Joe King he be sippin Armaretta
The Chaquita Kid he be sippin Armaretta
We got high stakes for mine Kiwa Armaretta
And then my man Ill Will sip Armaretta
And then my man Cab in the tray sippin that
We slide through the Tri-State with the hi-hat
And then I float side-to-side in my Coolie High
And then I peep the sunset with this Spanish Fly
And then I float down south with the Boogie Flats
And then I slide up in-between a ziggy
And all of that gibs

    Yes! every word you wrote here is the truth!
    its funny their style was so original, being a non native speaker of english it took me about a decade to get what these two are talking ’bout

  2. joppa says:

    you’re right Jurij, their slang is over-complicated also for us, poor italian people!

    …”The boss of Vegas substitutes when the Dutch is gone” … if i do understand correctly this metaphor, this is pure lyrical wizardry. Great.

  5. hooker crusher says:
