"Crack" meets Selling Chickens in Liguria by Henry Herbert La Thangue (1906)

Lyric: "N***a want a verse from me, it's gon' cost a chicken."

Henry Herbert La Thangue was a rural landscape painter and a member of the Newlyn School in England. We think it's fair to say that he wouldn't understand this lyric...or rap in general since he died in 1929.
