Whether is it animal, vegetable, or mineral
It's a miracle how he get so lyrical
And proceed to move the crowd like a old Negro spiritual

from MF DOOM – Beef Rapp Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The ultimate “lyrical spiritual miracle” rhyme—-a famous cliché of lyrical “underground” rap. Using the same three rhyming words, DOOM puts the rest to shame.

DOOM doesn’t care who or what when he attacks. Everybody can get it. And everybody gets it.

“Animal vegetable mineral” is a reference to twenty questions — it is the traditional first question asked.
