In response 2 Heavy Drama, who asked 4 an english translation of my entry. Here it is.
700 Games of Hunger
700 weeks my son
So we must have started in 2007
Calculate, sniff my ass
This dog is a barking mathematician
Where are the balloons? The lanterns?
The vegan snacks and the cucumber?
Stbb is just very special
A forum filled with cruel hiphop bombs
I take you with me on my yellow wooden shoes
To the farm where they drop these fresh little beats
Boombap, hiphop, breakbeat, hiphouse, dubstep, grime, trap
Producers from Vienna, Stockholm, London
And of course Rotterdam! Who can do without?
Homestudio, basement, attic, susussudio
Choicestress, seven leaps, due to tinnitus everybody became deaf
Singers and rappers with adhered lungs
Disappointments and healed wounds
From the weekend til Wednesday, the ultimate second
Flipping, building, mixing, chopping
And then finally posting, and toast to yourself
Because the week is finished, mission accomplished
And then wait for early responders
Fingers crossed what they think of it
Who takes the win? Who will get beaten?
Saturday, the outcome, the victory lap
And then the whole circus starts all over again
701, figured out fresh rules
Make new styles that don’t yet exist
Chop cool samples, create a wonder
Til now I unfortunately just only won twice
To win my third I have to turn 90
What! That beat dope? My toes are arching (*1)
Again no points, scream damn!
Pouring out tears, rain barrels,
Broken relations, yellowed lawns
But no..., no reasons to become nasty
When doper tracks ate mine,
Stbb battles are games of hunger
Smelled blood, blood drawn
Good food will always make you stronger
Longer lasting, here to conquer
You look surprised, dazed, amazed
A little bit down, somewhat depressed
But if you live on big mac nine ponders
You must eat beetroots (*2), that’s more healthy,
Eat beetroot/little beats….
respect for the makers, and especially
Granny, the old flexible chopper
Joa, an mc with more then 9 mouths
Per.du, has found himself
Sam Wise the Martian has climbed Venus
Mozafuka, has been drinking too much gin
second glass or a whole bottle?
I hear Cascassette on the castanets
Detritus Tabu brings punk style thunder
5xvt flips within the second
Kool Dee Moe is a one man wonder
Buttaslick, always at the crimescene
And obvious no phoney sham
Am I also fan of Yoniden
(Til the end of the outro, the only dutch line is; "Sil’dante weet van wanten" *3)
*1; “tenen krommen”
literally translated as “toes arching”. It’s a dutch saying, meaning “disgust”. In english is “skin crawl”, often used.
*2; “bietjes eten”
Literally meaning, “eat beetroots”. It has the same prononciation as “beatjes”. Meaning, “eat little beats”. “je” at the end of a dutch word is a diminutive (huis/house – huisje/little house). In plural it is “jes”. So the meaning is; eat little beats or/and beatroots.
*3;”Sil’dante weet van wanten” means; Sil’dante knows what to do.
Peace to y'all & have a good 701!
