Was the verse possibly referring to Michael Jackson, at least in part? His unknown sexuality and changing appearance were hot topics at the time of its recording.

G Rap doesn’t give blow (jobs). He only gives (knockout) blows to gay men who approach him in a sexual manner.

G Rap says that conflates HIV and AIDS and says they are as common as Tuberculosis (TB) — “in case you didn’t know.”

The guy was once big and masculine, but is now thin and feminine. He likes to take the female role in call-and-response chants at dance parties.

“Sugar walls” refer to the inner lining of the vagina. Gay men would likely prefer testicles (balls) to pussy. Go figure.

He’s gay. If you still haven’t gotten that, Kool G Rap spells it out one more time.

To give the impression of being a female (with breasts) — presumably to try to deceive straight men? But he also winks his eyes at guys who wear bras.

Wouldn’t a gay man prefer to use the men’s room?

Kool G Rap calls the guy “sugar,” as if to feminize him, but since he is already dressing like a woman, it’s doubtful that the gay cross-dresser would be humiliated by this. It’s also not as if he’s trying to keep things on the DL, so why G Rap coyly says, “I know why” is a bit of a mystery. Obviously. Everyone knows why. Dude is gay.

Perhaps Kool G Rap was a Nostradamus-like figure, seeing into hip-hop’s future.

"Created Hinduism, the first caste system, the origins of ..." (Ras Kass – Nature of the Threat) | pending

I’m describing what Ras is saying, not what I believe, and in either case, we are describing Western imperialism.

Wrong lyrics. It’s “believe in thievin.”

"Whenever frustrated, I'ma hijack Delta" (Nas – N.Y. State of Mind) | rejected

I don’t think Nas is saying he IS A “hijacked Delta,” I think he’s saying he IS GOING TO (“I’m a” — short for “I’m going to”) hijack a Delta airplane out of frustration.

"To make it funny I ain't vote for Bush; motherfucker P!" (Sean Price – Bully Rap) | rejected

George W. Bush did not run for president in 2008. He was term-limited.

I think DOOM may be talking about an erection here. “Soon as you give the green light, I’m delving in” — the album art shows a girl’s legs. And then the next bars are “Fuck masturbating, I’d rather wait than..” — > I think the Incredible Hulk turning back to Bill Bixby is like turning an erection back into a flacid penis. What do you think?

The lyrics are copied directly from the liner notes that came with the CD. It’s definitely “sanctified sex.”

Trill is the name of the sound made by rolling the tongue in the pronunciation of Spanish words or while singing, etc. It sounds like “trill.” This may not make it onomatopoeia, in the sense that Bun B was trying to use it, but I think that’s what he was going for.

"Throw in the towel, the devil is Colin Powell" (Boogie Down Productions – Build and Destroy) | accepted

Collin Powell was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George H.W. Bush in 1992, when this song was recorded.

"You talk about being African and being black / Colin Powe..." (Boogie Down Productions – Build and Destroy) | pending

Barack Obama also supported an attack on Libya.
