I'm too wild, trying to take it on back to '9-6
Illadelph halflife, all eyes have been nixed
Beats, rhymes and life and stakes is high shit
It was written in the scriptures, A-T-Liens exist
By Iron Man and Dr. Octagonecologist

from Asher Roth – Muddy Swim Trunks Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

While 1997 marked the beginning of the “Jiggy”/“Bling-bling” era of hip-hop, 1996 was a great year for classic rap albums. Asher references these classic albums here, including The Roots Illadelph Halflife, 2Pac’s All Eyez on Me, A Tribe Called Quest’s Beats, Rhymes and Life", De La Soul’s Stakes is High, Nas' It Was Written, Outkast’s ATLiens, Ghostface Killah’s “Ironman”, and Kool Keith aka Dr. Octagon’s Dr. Octagonecologist*

Asher wants to take his music back to the last GREAT year in hip-hop music

–“In the scriptures” COULD represent the Bone Thugs family album, Mo Thugs' Family Scriptures, released in 1996, but I doubt it (does anyone consider this a classic, or even remember it?)
