Yo, we take no shit, like ummm, stopped up commodes Wheelz of Steel by Outkast

A commode is a word often used interchangeably with “toilet”, so if it was backed up it would be able to take anymore shit in it. André compares this to how he and Big Boi take no “shit” (bad talk) from anyone around them.

That you distribute, we don't contribute, to your clandestine
Activity
Wheelz of Steel by Outkast

André points out the hypocrisy of the CIA and other intelligence organizations that try to crack down on drug dealers despite the fact that are perceived to have flooded the streets with drugs in order to cripple the black community. But André refuses to take part in these “clandestine”“ (secretive) practices because he knows better.
