You ain't seen no guts, don't get no guts
The closest thing to some pussy is your hand
Da Payback by Mia X

That’s “guts” in the slang, Ghostfacian sense, meaning exactly what Mia says it does in the second of the two lines

Ride that dick with a boot in my mouth?
You get the gat for the cat cause I wear your ass out
Da Payback by Mia X

Bounce artists were often asking women, for less-than-chivalrous reasons, to “put a boot in your mouth”. See a latter-day example by Silkk the Shocker and Master P here on their collaboration “We Don’t Dance We Bounce”:

We don’t dance, we bounce
Throw your hands in the air, and put that boot in your mouth

Ain't no nigga like a pussy-eating nigga
Cause a slurping motherfucker ain't shit
Da Payback by Mia X

This type of “Ain’t no…like a…/Cause a…ain’t shit” chant was likewise a staple of bounce music. A more gangsta example can be found here in PxMxWx’s 1993 “Splift Out”:

Ain’t no nigga like a drug-selling nigga
Cause a no-job nigga ain’t shit

"Biggity-bounce, baby, bounce"? Bitch, I ain't no ball
You get excited if I ride it, but your dick too small
Da Payback by Mia X

Mia is reacting with exasperation to the “bounce-biggity-bounce” chanting that gives bounce music its name. Hear an example in Lil Slim’s 1993 song “Bounce Slide Ride”

Now, "Suck a nigga dick for an outfit"?
And, "Suck a nigga dick for some K-Swiss"?
Well, eat a lady's pussy for a home-cooked meal
And blow the ass for a 40, bitch
Da Payback by Mia X

Mia responds to a bounce chant originally popularized by DJ Jimi on his cover of “Where They At”. The original version is generally regarded as the first bounce song, incidentally:

I said, bitch, stop talking that shit
And suck a nigga dick for an outfit

The chant (not heard on the original version) would make countless appearances for years in Southern rap even outside of bounce, including in Memphis pioneers 8Ball & MJG’s “Outfit”

I met this nigga, his name was Duke
The bitch tried to take me to the Rochambeau
I said, "Cheap motherfucker, better come again
And let's mosey on over to La Quinta Inn"
Da Payback by Mia X

These lines about N.O.’s Rochambeau Hotel are Mia’s rebuttal to a popular bounce chant of the time, an example of which is found on Juvenile’s 1991 song (produced by bounce pioneer DJ Jimi), “Bounce (for the Juvenile)”:

She asked me fast, what we gonna do
We gonna take a little walk to the Rochambeau

A licky-licky-licky-sucky-slurp it-licky-sucky
Licky-sucky slurp it, lick it, do it, nigga
Da Payback by Mia X

This chant is an answer to the meme bounce chant, likely originated by DJ Jimi on what is generally acknowledged as the first bounce song, 1992’s “Where They At”. His version, with the same cadence, went:

A do it baby, stick it baby, do it baby, stick it baby
Do it baby, stick it, stick it, baby, do it
