Good Day - 6/28/05
'Cuz nobody I know got killed in South Central LA. - Ice Cube

The phone conversation I had with Sam tonight, after the shooting yesterday, referenced this, one of my top three favorite rap lyics lines of all time. Because obviously any day where nobody you know gets killed in a specific area of Los Angeles is a good one.

SAM: How was your day?
PAUL: Good. Didn't see any more shootings.
SAM: Nobody you know got killed in South Central LA?
PAUL: Exactly. (then) Does Sepulveda and Santa Monica count as South Central?
SAM: I think it's more West LA. Southern West LA.
PAUL: And nobody got killed, really. The guy just kinda shot at their car.
SAM: And missed.
PAUL: I also didn't really know them. I only saw them for second.
SAM: So nobody you'd seen for a second had somebody shoot in the general direction of their car in southern West LA?
PAUL: Exactly. Today was a good day.

For future reference reference, my other two favorite rap lines of all time are as follows:

"Cuz your waist is small and your curves are kickin'. And I'm thinkin' 'bout stickin'." - Sir Mix-a-lot

"Stankin' ass bitches, who need to wash up - don't get mad when I don't wanna fuck. You need soap, and water. Soap, and water. Soap, and water. Soap and water. Water water water water water water water water water water water water water water water water." - DJ Assault (who pronounces each "s" in the previous verse with a lisp)
