And back before I tried to cover up my slang

from B.o.B (Ft. Hayley Williams) – Airplanes Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

B.o.B. is from Atlanta, Georgia, and speaks/raps with a noticeable southern twang. Apparently he used to purposefully avoid using uniquely southern slang words to appeal to a wider audience, but stopped misrepresenting himself at some point

Curiously, this particular song doesn’t contain a single slang word
