    word plays are just metaphors and similies for the most part. if you listen to hiphop you hear them all the time for the most part, of course depending on what you listen to. find a battle track, you'll hear shitloads of them...

    its just what it says...a play on words.

    for example the one coming to my mind at the moment is that a biggie line:

    "n*ggas is mad i get more butt than ashtrays"...lol i love that line...anwayssss...

    see the play on words? that's just a simple on...there is so much more you can go into. me myself..i've never been strong on them so i don't wanna go giving you too much random advice since its not one of my strong points. hoped this gave you a general idea tho.

    ^^That was a good example. And I agree, wordplay is alot of the time metaphors and similies. You should try some and see how it turns out. Post it back up here and see what people think of them.

    much love

You got good rhymes, I just told you a few days ago how well you were elevating did I not? Exactly. So start thinking positive and get that confidence in ya. Feel me?
