Just ask Marley, I know he heard
Ask him if he did it (W-w-word-word!)

from Cool C – Juice Crew Dis Lyrics on Rap Genius


The sample of Marley Marl saying “Word!” comes from Shan’s “Down By Law”. The implication here is that Marley was sleeping with his artist Roxanne Shante. This was a genuine rumour at the time — Shante had a child and the gossip was that Marley was the father.

Update: According to Biz Markie, Marley and Shante actually were an item back then.
