Tone Loc has a song titled “Cheeba Cheeba” which this song samples. There is also plenty of coughing in the Tone Loc version, much like you’d experience if you were sick.

"Still at it, scrub J's with a toothbrush" (Drake – Worst Behavior) | rejected

This may also be a reference to Paid in Full in which there is a scene where Mekhi Pfiffer makes his little brother Sonny clean his shoes and tells him he needs to get a toothbrush to clean the soles.

"Singing folk songs, but not no Kumbaya my Lord" (Devin The Dude – What a Job) | accepted

Folk songs usually represent a certain aspect of a culture or the culture as a whole. Andres folk songs are representations of hip-hop.

"I might not be the sharpest with a Sharpie" (Ugly Heroes – Hero's Theme) | accepted

This has nothing to do with writing rhymes. It’s a graffiti reference.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that he’s saying Slangin O’s in the second verse.

"My liquid money's a hypnotist to your Mrs" (Meek Mill – Maybach Curtains) | pending

I appreciate that Nas uses proper grammar and punctuation.

"A White Russian shoulda get my blood pumpin'" (Asher Roth – Gotta Get up) | pending

This is also a reference to the music video. In it Asher pays homage to The Big Lebowski, in which the main character The Dude’s favorite drink was a White Russian.

It’s actually a mix of vodka, Kahlua or any other coffee liqueur, and heavy cream.

He’s saying how quickly men can turn into bitches.

"Money in the floor case they kick in the door / Saran wra..." (Curren$y – Sixty-Seven Turbo Jet) | accepted

He’s keeping money in the floor just in the police come to raid his house. And if they bring in K9 units, all his wares are wrapped up, hidden in the wall panels.

“I know you’re used to the mids” not midst.

Mids, as in not great, not por quality marijuana.

This needs to be broken down into several different explanations;

  1. “Now it’s pseudo-pitiful, plus punks be ‘fessin
    Sellin records, talk about what they dressed in”

It seems that most rap is filled with nothing but Emcee’s talking about their designer clothes.

  1. “Im sayin that’s a part of it (wht) but not the start of it.
    The livest show used to be in your apartment kid”

While fancy clothes, and big chains are obviously part of the hip-hop lifestyle, it’s not the largest piece of the puzzle. It’s all about the music.

It used to be that you didn’t have to rap in front of a stadium to feel justified in your passion. You just had to spit in front of your friends and neighborhood (in your apartment).

  1. “Hip-hop! Started out in the dark”

A reference to Jay-z’s opening line on Ludacris ft. Nas and Jay-z, another song about doing hip-hop for the love of hip-hop

  1. “Now it’s mainly focused to where the fly cars is parked
    But it’s still in my, still in my heart”

To some people, hip-hop is all about who has the nicest Maybach. But to some, it’s still about the love of the music.
