Sleng Teng is the first fully computerized Jamaican riddim (rhythm). This is a reference to the popular Ninjaman track “Murder Dem” that he released in 1990.

He obviously admired this girl since he remember her very well although he met her in 1995, the year when the legendary hip-hop group released the song “Shook Ones” which was featured on their album The Infamous.

He often addresses his tough childhood in his songs. When he was child, he was constantly being abused by his stepfather and there were no angels to save him from being abused. The track “Mama Told Me” is dedicated strictly to that fact.

Children who get abused through their childhood, often grow up to be violent, hateful and angry too. But still, Chino hopes that surviving a tough childhood led him to a the crown today.

He prays that his death is not very painful for him and that he’ll just die silently. But he wishes that his funeral is loud — he wants to have a lot of people attending it (his friends) and that they will mourn and cry over him loudly — he wants to know that people love him.

Obviously Chino’s mother didn’t really care that much about him and he references it in a number of his songs. In “Mama Told Me”, he said that his mother didn’t want to save him from being abused by his stepfather — she allowed Chino’s hurt.

Mom he beatin' me bad, first escaped my lips
She said that I was a fuck up and I deserved this shit

And with all the shit that Chino went through, he shed a huge amount of tears. Since he probably couldn’t drown in the rain, he might just drown in his own tears.

R.A.’s father, John Andrew Thorburn, was a Vietnam veteran. He served in the United States Army and the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War and he got affected by Agent Orange. He died in 2010.

The song “Uncommon Valor” was featured on the 2006 Jedi Mind Tricks album Servants in Heaven, Kings in Hell and on R.A.’s compilation album Legendary Classics Vol. 1 from 2009. R.A. also recorded one more track that’s strictly dedicated to his father, “Legends Never Die (Daddy’s Halo)”, the title track from his 2013 LP.

This is a reference to the very similar line Agallah spits on R.A.’s track “Till My Heart Stops” that was featured on the 1997 Soundbombing CD.

I’m in the mansion sipping Dom with Wong from Hong Kong

“Wong from Hong Kong” possibly refers to the Hong Kong actor and movie director Anthony Wong, since we know that R.A. often makes movie references in his songs. Anyway, he’s sipping some of that Dom Perignon wine with that guy, which obviously makes everything around him float.

R.A. often expresses his love for fat women in his songs. Two nice examples would be:

It also might be that he loves women that are exactly 300 pounds heavy, since he also said in “Smithhaven Mall” that he made a 300 pound woman strip down to her drawers.

Given the fact that he loves overweight women, he obviously eats some huge ass — so big that he even compares it to a hawk. R.A. is all about that ass.

R.A. the Rugged Man often refers to himself as a caveman because of his uncivilized behavior — he’s even featured on a Demigodz track with the name “Captain Caveman”.

He’s also of German descent from his mother’s side — he has a track dedicated to German pussy and German references and terms in general.

The flick in question is the 1972 martial arts movie Way of the Dragon. There is a scene where the main character Tang Lung, played by Bruce Lee, and Colt, played by Chuck Norris fight each other. The fight ends with Chuck Norris being defeated by Bruce. However, what’s notable to R.A. is how hairy Chuck’s chest was during that fight against Bruce Lee.

And R.A. claims that he had even more chest hair than that some time ago. And that might be true…

"I get skinheads bowing to Mecca and praying to Islam" (R.A. The Rugged Man – Laugh, Clown, Laugh) | accepted

I think this might even be a referrence to Brother Ali, because RA got him on this album and Brother Ali is a skinhead and a Muslim at the same time. So it may mean that RA got Brother Ali, but he can’t afford more expensive artists like Dre, Swizz or Timbaland. This is just my opinion.
