(Naw man, mad people was frontin’
Aw man, made something from nothing)
This is a repeated lyric from “New God Flow.” It simulates dialogue between a successful hip hop artists and his critics. It is deliberately cliché, making both the accusation (“Cars, money, girls and the clothes. Awww, man you sold your soul”) and the defense (“Naaw man, mad people was frontin. Aww man, made something from nothing”) seem ridiculous.
G.O.O.D. Music is making light of criticism of the upper-middle class background of some of their members and their reputation as artistic and lacking in “street cred” by using over-exaggerated, outmoded street talk (e.g. “mad people was frontin'”).
