How I misinterpreted Rap lyrics: Ice Cube ""Check Yo Self"

For the longest time, unti last week, I thought Ice Cube said the following in the song "Check Yo Self":

You better check yo self before you wreck yo self
Cos I'm bad for your health, I come real stealth
Droppin bombs on ya moms, fuck Carl Lums
Doin foul crime, I'm that nigga wit'cha Alpine


Ok, I never knew who that "Carl Lums" guy was, maybe he was some California politician that wanted to pass legislation that seemed like an affront to the black community, who knows?? But I have been saying this gentleman's name in extreme confidence ever since the song first came out. That was until I saw what he actually said:

You better check yo self before you wreck yo self
Cos I'm bad for your health, I come real stealth
Droppin bombs on ya moms, fuck car alarms
Doin foul crime, I'm that nigga wit'cha Alpine


Ok, that makes since, especially since he mentioned a stereo system in the line following. Hey, to all the men named Carl Lums out there, I owe you a sincere apology.

HA!!! That's HILARIOUS! And you even ADMITTED IT, most folks wouldn't admit that!

There used to be a website for misunderstood lyrics, I think it was called kissthisguy.com

If that site's still around you should submit that lyrics mis-hear.

Hee.
