Who gon' spit that Ramo on the train tracks
A reference to the film Beat Street
A sick play on words. The Graffiti artist name the was fighting with Ramo on the train tracks was “Spit”. His name was Spit because he would deface other Graffiti artist work by writing his name over it, as if he was spitting on it. Kinda like what Jay is doing to the so called Hip Hop community with this track! Ramo caught Spit defacing his work (or even someone else’s work) and the art form meant so much to him he was willing to die to defend it. Clip Here
So when Jay says “Who gon' spit that Ramo on the train tracks” he’s saying who going to spit that real hip-hop that people (Ramo) were willing to die for before… who but him?
Spit=Rhyme, Spit=The Character Spit
Track=Song, Track=Train Tracks
