Conservatives don’t understand slang linguistics
The burbs talking like the hood will change with quickness

from Nas (Ft. Mary J. Blige) – Reach Out Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas went after a conservative who “don’t understand slang linguistics” in 2007 when he lashed out at Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly had criticized Virginia Tech for allowing Nas to perform at the school after a deadly shooting incident there. Nas' response to MTV laid it on the line:

“He’s a racist,” Nas said. “Everybody has a marketing plan; his marketing plan is racism.”

[O'Reilly] doesn’t understand the younger generation. He deals with the past. The people he represents are Republican, older, a generation that has nothing to do with the reality of what’s happening now with my generation. … He’s not really on my radar. People like him are supposed to be taught and people like me are supposed to let n—-as like him know. I don’t take him serious. His sh— is all about getting ratings or whatever. I wouldn’t honor anything Bill O'Reilly has to say. It just shows you what bloodsuckers do: They abuse something like the Virginia Tech [tragedy] for show ratings. You can’t talk to a person like that
