cuz Big L said so...

 

Artist: Big L

Album: The Big Picture

Song: Ebonics

Typed by: shinyo@geocities.com

 

Yo, pay attention

And listen real closely how I break this slang shit down

 

Check it, my weed smoke is my lye

A ki of coke is a pie

When I'm lifted, I'm high

With new clothes on, I'm fly

Cars is whips and sneakers is kicks

Money is chips, movies is flicks

Also, cribs is homes, jacks is pay phones

Cocaine is nose candy, cigarettes is bones

A radio is a box, a razor blade is a ox

Fat diamonds is rocks and jakes is cop

And if you got rubbed, you got stuck

You got shot, you got bucked

And if you got double-crossed, you got fucked

Your bankroll is your poke, a choke hold is a yoke

A kite is a note, a con is a okey doke

And if you got punched that mean you got snuffed

To clean is to buff, a bull scare is a strong bluff

I know you like the way I'm freakin' it

I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

 

Chorus: repeat (2X)

 

"Speak with criminal slang" -Nas

That's just the way that I talk, yo

"Vocabulary spills, I'm ill" -Nas

 

Yo, yo

A burglary is a jook, a woof's a crook

Mobb Deep already explained the meanin' of shook

If you caught a felony, you caught a F

If you got killed, you got left

If you got the dragon, you got bad breath

If you 730, that mean you crazy

Hit me on the hip means page me

Angel dust is sherm, if you got AIDS, you got the germ

If a chick gave you a disease, then you got burned

Max mean to relax, guns and pistols is gats

Condoms is hats, critters is cracks

The food you eat is your grub

A victim's a mark

A sweat box is a small club, your tick is your heart

Your apartment is your pad

Your old man is your dad

The studio is the lab and heated is mad

I know you like the way I'm freakin' it

I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

 

Chorus (2X)

 

The iron horse is the train and champaign is bubbly

A deuce is a honey that's ugly

If your girl is fine, she's a dime

A suit is a fine, jewelry is shine

If you in love, that mean you blind

Genuine is real, a face card is a hundred dollar bill

A very hard, long stare is a grill

If you sneakin' to go see a girl, that mean you creepin'

Smilin' is cheesin', bleedin' is leakin'

Beggin is bummin, if you nuttin you comin

Takin' orders is sunnin', an ounce of coke is a onion

A hotel's a telly, a cell phone's a celly

Jealous is jelly, your food box is your belly

To guerrilla mean to use physical force

You took a L, you took a loss

To show off mean floss, uh

I know you like the way I'm freakin' it

I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

 

Chorus (2X)

 

Yeah, yeah

One love to my big brother, Big Lee

Holdin' it down

Yeah, Flamboyant for life

Yeah yeah, Flamboyant for life

yeah but what i want to know is how they got that expression

did something crazy go down at 7:30 or at a place called 730

 

"139 and Lennox is the danger zone" =139th street and lennox is a bad part of town

 

so why 730
