Bought a bag of izm from the smoke shop
Walking towards the car, here come the damn cops
Now I'm station bound for the Thai sticks
I bought it for my man, I don't believe this shit

Meaning

Phife bought some illegalness for a friend and got caught by the cops.
If he hadn’t bought it in the first place…there would have been no problems!
