If a pair of Jordan's came out, y'all figure that I got 'em D.E.E.P. by Outkast (Ft. Andre 3000 & Big Boi)

Style and status items are important in every culture, but basketball shoes (Air Jordans in particular) are especially important to the black community. Finding people wearing rags and $200 sneakers isn’t as uncommon as you might think. And reports of blacks killing other blacks for the new Jordans certainly don’t help kill the stereotype. Having said that, assuming that every single black person owns a pair of Air Jordans is highly sterotypical and inaccurate.

And if you gave me a basketball, I'll show you how to shoot it D.E.E.P. by Outkast (Ft. Andre 3000 & Big Boi)

Too many young black men believe that the only way to get out of the ghetto is by becoming a pro athlete, rapper, or a gangster. This is partially because the media constantly portrays basketball as a “black” sport, rap as a black genre, and gang violence as being associated with black men. The Notorious B.I.G. spoke on this in “Things Done Changed”:

If I wasn’t in the rap game
I’d probably have a key knee-deep in the crack game
Because the streets is a short stop
Either you’re slinging crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot"

Lil' Fame bring it live yo, that's what I strive fo'
I'mma settle this before you get to call 5-0
You wanna see me 4-5 blow?
Nigga put the phone down fo I dump 2 times 4
What you wan' cry fo?
No Mercy by Pharoahe Monch (Ft. M.O.P.)

A nice series of homoponic word play on the syllable “fo'”, or for/fore/four. Lil Fame plays on “for”, then “beFORE”, then FOUR-five (.45, a gun), then 2 x 4 = 8, another slang word for gun.

Possibly also meaning he’s dropping 8 bars

Fill em with so much lead I'll call
(M.O.P): BERGER AND ASSOCIATES
No Mercy by Pharoahe Monch (Ft. M.O.P.)

Possibly one of the greatest and least-understood puns of all time. Monch will fill them with lead — he will shoot them. Berger & Associates is a New York law firm located at 321 Broadway in New York, where Monch (and M.O.P.) are from.

According to their website,

“The law firm of Berger Attorney PC helps children with lead poisoning. Children with lead poisoning from lead paint or dust can have very serious problems including brain damage, learning disabilities, and behavior problems. If your child has lead poisoning, call us for a free consultation.”

Berger Attorney firm also practice worker’s compensation, sexual harassment, birth injuries, and injuries to children. Some real shady shit, as far as lawyering goes.

Monch will fill ‘em with so much lead that they call Berger and Associates to sue him for lead poisoning!
