I can’t edit song titles, wish I could though.

Hey Lily, thanks for contributing to the site! RapGenius editor Xionc here. To address your two comments:
1) When we find that a YouTube link is out of service or broken, we will replace them. The best way to get our attention is to post comments just like this one, so thanks!
2) There is a way to just have a discussion without Rap IQ(™) being involved. It just means I don’t have to do anything. So, as per your request, I will not accept or reject your comments; therefore, they will remain here until the end of time. Or until another editor does it.
As for the “triple entendre” note, I would agree with you. I think the line is a double entendre (he walks with a swagger, he pays tribute to Big Daddy Kane), but I can see where people can infer a triple (he is generous with his coke stash).
However, there is a legitimate triple a few lines below, when he says “I'ma bring you some Nets”. Brooklyn is established firmly in the song as both the geographical location and a girl. So the triple goes 1) He’s bringing the New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn, 2) He’s bringing his girl some sexy fishnet stockings, and 3) He’s bringing her accessories which make it easier to trap the youth.
Wikipedia should be able to police itself when it comes to their content; we try to! If they want to give us credit for the wrong thing, hey, it’s a free online encyclopedia; we’re just a lowly lyrics exegesis site scraping by…
In short, I really appreciate your comments and hope that you stick around the site!
Yes, it should; I do not have the administrative privileges to do so. If I did, I would change this, the name of “Doo Wop” and a few others.
Ah, I get it, like when Jay said something along the lines of “If skills moved records, truthfully, I’d be Talib Kweli” or something like that. Skills as currency.
“Queens get the money” sounds an awful lot like “C.R.E.A.M. get the money” from a certain New York rap nonet.
I’d say almost certainly not; I doubt Lu gets gussied up before he hits the studio, then asks an artform for its phone number. Although with His Royal Trickiness™, I don’t put it past him
Perhaps talking about his 22-inch pythons (biceps) ala Hulk Hogan, who lives in Miami nowadays? Just a thought.
Triple C’s is slang for an ingredient in cough syrup which causes you to “robo trip”. I have no idea what the fuck that means.
Also, for people too drunk or stuck in their Slick Rick ways.
Also, it’s a double negative, which you wouldn’t use if you were trying to sound smart (isn’t nothing)
