I'm a teacher on sabbatical, what's that; it doesn't matter
A professor is allowed to take a year off (usually every seventh) to travel and study. Doesn’t matter if you know what it means, it just sounds cool. Rapper Cam'ron, whose beat was used for this song, utters a similar line on “Get Down”, followed by “What’s that?” after it, thus serving as the inspiration for Kool’s line.
