Like Greeks with his falafel, Italian with his to-mato pasta
What roti is to a rasta

from Nas (Ft. Busta Rhymes) – Fried Chicken Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pasta and roti are foods culturally linked to Italy and the Caribbean respectively. Nas gets his geography wrong with falafel which is considered a national dish in countries like Lebanon, Egypt, and Israel, but not Greece. Maybe he’s confusing Turks with Greeks.

Note that these foods are all relatively healthy compared to fried chicken.
