That's what happens when you put too many words in a verse and no one can understand you

Kind of, I quite like it tho ! it gives it an "offbeat" tension / excitement 

I think maybe it was either intentional OR accidental and they liked it so left it

It's jarring to me, but only because she is referencing so much of Biggie's verse that I expect the same flow. 

I keep expecting

"A star's a star, da ha da ha
They never thought the swish god would take it this far
Now I'm in the limelight cause I rhyme tight,
Time to get paid, blow up like the world trade."

But it's such a sharp difference that it messes with me.

I mean.. Juicy is such an iconic song, Biggie is such an iconic artist and he has such a distinctive flow that you already have an expectation of where the verse is going to go. It goes so totally left field and then the music pauses and it just feels so out of place, you know? I've heard Juicy so many times I know how it's supposed to end, I expect a certain ending and my brain is wired to release endorphins when it reaches that satisfying conclusion that I expect - when it doesn't do that it just feels wrong.

the whole song is off beat imo (not shade) cause i feel like verses never hit when they're supposed to. not sure if anyone else feels the same

Know that you said it, I'm feeling it too!!!

In some parts, I feel like the beat is a few milliseconds later than it's suppose to be

And yet the rap and instrumental are still the best parts :tony:
