A type of slang mostly used by your typical "thuged-out" niggas
Artist: Big L
Album: The Big Picture
Song: Ebonics


Yo, pay attention
And listen real closely how I break this slang shit down

Check it, my weed smoke is my lye
A ki of coke is a pie
When I'm lifted, I'm high
With new clothes on, I'm fly
Cars is whips and sneakers is kicks
Money is chips, movies is flicks
Also, cribs is homes, jacks is pay phones
Cocaine is nose candy, cigarettes is bones
A radio is a box, a razor blade is a ox
Fat diamonds is rocks and jakes is cop
And if you got rubbed, you got stuck
You got shot, you got bucked
And if you got double-crossed, you got fucked
Your bankroll is your poke, a choke hold is a yoke
A kite is a note, a con is a okey doke
And if you got punched that mean you got snuffed
To clean is to buff, a bull scare is a strong bluff
I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

Chorus: repeat (2X)

"Speak with criminal slang" -Nas
That's just the way that I talk, yo
"Vocabulary spills, I'm ill" -Nas

Yo, yo
A burglary is a jook, a woof's a crook
Mobb Deep already explained the meanin' of shook
If you caught a felony, you caught a F
If you got killed, you got left
If you got the dragon, you got bad breath
If you 730, that mean you crazy
Hit me on the hip means page me
Angel dust is sherm, if you got AIDS, you got the germ
If a chick gave you a disease, then you got burned
Max mean to relax, guns and pistols is gats
Condoms is hats, critters is cracks
The food you eat is your grub
A victim's a mark
A sweat box is a small club, your tick is your heart
Your apartment is your pad
Your old man is your dad
The studio is the lab and heated is mad
I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

Chorus (2X)

The iron horse is the train and champaign is bubbly
A deuce is a honey that's ugly
If your girl is fine, she's a dime
A suit is a fine, jewelry is shine
If you in love, that mean you blind
Genuine is real, a face card is a hundred dollar bill
A very hard, long stare is a grill
If you sneakin' to go see a girl, that mean you creepin'
Smilin' is cheesin', bleedin' is leakin'
Beggin is bummin, if you nuttin you comin
Takin' orders is sunnin', an ounce of coke is a onion
A hotel's a telly, a cell phone's a celly
Jealous is jelly, your food box is your belly
To guerrilla mean to use physical force
You took a L, you took a loss
To show off mean floss, uh
I know you like the way I'm freakin' it
I talk with slang and I'ma never stop speakin' it

Chorus (2X)

Yeah, yeah
One love to my big brother, Big Lee
Holdin' it down
Yeah, Flamboyant for life
Yeah yeah, Flamboyant for life

(n) ebony+phonics=ebonics (language of blacks)
how the majority of blacks tamper with english. its not an official language but very widely known. its a fun alternative to boring english. like any language, ebonics has rules to follow. if you do not know them, you will look stupid trying to talk it or be lost when someone speaking ebonics adresses you
Here are rules for changing words:
1) for a word that has an ending pronounced 'ore' as in 'or' or 'more', remove to 'r' or 're' and add an apostrophe
2) for words with endings that are pronounced 'er' as in 'killer', remove the 'er' and add 'a', 'uh', or 'ah'(which is pronounced 'uh')
for plural words, do the same exept 'ers' as in 'killers' is replaced by 'uz' (pronounced uh-z) or 'az'(pronounced 'uz')
3) for words that end in 'ool', such as 'cool' or 'fool', get rid of the 'l' and add an apostrophe instead

1) store > sto'
for > fo'
your/you're > yo'
2) nigger > nigga, nigguh, niggah
niggers > niggaz, nigguz
3) cool > coo'
fool > foo'
That was a short lesson in ebonics

A form of city slang, often used in the hood (ghetto neighborhood). It's just like any other language, you have to know how to speak it in order to understand it. Often people who understand ebonics, also understand the proper use of words. Just because they can understand ebonics, does not mean that they are unable to speak "properly".
Example 1:

Ebonics: "I done ate my grub, now I best be gettin' on"

Proper English: "I've eaten my food, so now I should leave"

Example 2:

Ebonics: "I finna kick it with mah homies up in mah crib"

Proper English" "I'm going to relax with my friends at my house"
