Cause who I'm talking bout y'all is hip-hop
Oh snap! If you go back and read the lyrics, if you replace “girl” with “rap” and “she” and “her” with “it” and “its”, everything falls into place. A real Keyser Soze moment!
My roommate Rassan was in the studio while I was recording the song. I can see him from the booth, he’s sitting there shaking his head, sipping, and frowning as I’m doing it. He thought I was talking to a woman. I got to the last line, ‘Who I’m talkin’ ’bout y’all? It’s hip-hop,’ and soon as I said it, he threw his hands up and was grabbing his head like, ‘Oh, shit! I can’t believe this!’
