questions you are dying to ask but are too scared to b/c of music nerd cred?

What is the third line in the chorus of Anna by Ruff Sqwad? I've been listening to that tune quite a lot recently, they're saying something about a freestyle but I can't work it out and it's annoying me

Ta! I can understand a lot more of the lyrics in grime and dancehall songs than I used to be able to, but as a Scottish guy I still find it hard sometimes :confused:

When I first listened to the end of Jus A Rascal (before the voicemail) or D Double E's verse on Destruction VIP I couldn't understand a word they were saying
 
So when a track is too short for a twelve inch, why do they press it up on 12 and not 10"? It's not a common problem but when it happens you have to wonder why they wasted all that plastic and ended up with a more expensive product. Or is there a reason that anyone knows of.

My recollection is that 10" either costs the same or is more expensive than a 12". Plus I guess 12" is better for people who do actual proper mixing.

Also it is more an issue of how close the grooves are together. A proper disc cutter should spread the grooves across the vinyl for better sound.

You used to get these Congo Natty 12" which were half grooves and half run out which was stupid. The closer the grooves are together the lower the volume of the record.

its taught me a lot about identity this $
there've been many times i was tempted to start a corpsey sex thread, but decided against it. one time it was going to be 'turn corpsey into corp$ey', but then even corp$ey was disparaging and it all went out the window

This is fantastic:


but so much Afroswing, or whatever people are calling it, seems a bit underwhelming, lacking the massive hooks. Who else apart from J Hus is good?

It's somewhat counterintuitive but 10" presses are simply more expensive.
