When Rap Lyrics Get Censored, Even on the Explicit Version

Rakim on "My Melody" (1987)

Lyrics Censored: "I wouldn't have come to say my name and run the same weak [shit], putting blurs and slurs and words that don't fit in a rhyme."

Given the line immediately following "shit," this lyric was likely self-censored as a means of showing that Rakim found profane raps unnecessary.
