The anti batty boy, big up is who I be

from A Tribe Called Quest – Oh My God Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Batty boy is a derogatory term for gay men used in the Caribbean (Phife has Trinidadian heritage).

Although censored in most versions of the song, the slur is left intact in some remixes. In the video Q-Tip makes a point of miming the words “batty boy” straight to camera.
