Straight outta Jamaica, seen? Jamaica, Queens
Phife grew up in Jamaica, Queens, a neighborhood in New York. But he plays on the word Jamaica by using the Jamaican slang “seen” which is like the JA/Rasta equivalent of “you know what I’m saying”.
Phife is of Trinidadian heritage and uses a lot of Caribbean slang in his rhymes.
