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

ebonics is the act of using almost every word your english teacher didnt want you to use. it uses the latest slang or "in correct grammer" of the weak. it is useually spoken in the ghetto and poorer parts of town. some people speak ebonics as a 3rd language or just as a joke (e.g. preppy high schoolers) some people use it as a joke and when they need to get their point across to certain groups of people(e.g. myself, the person who is getting their poin across) and some people use it as every day language, they also dont call it ebonics, they called it "talk"n at cha". ebonics also involves putting an "izle" or "isich" to some words. it also works by just adding a J or an X.

A language that is stigmatized and ridiculed by the intolerant society of America. It is complex, rule-governed and structured just as any other language... it is NOT slang and is not MADE UP by its speakers.

Certain aspects of Ebonics are shared by other languages around the globe, most specifically western African languages. The habitual "be" is a feature standard English does not have, establishing differences in the present tense like the "here and now" or "habitual."

ebonics is when you substitute every word with a slang word instead of just using the occasional slang word

you can make up yo own word for any other word an it's cool because no one will understand your language but you and if everyone did it then no one would understand anyone and we could all just walk around going "bleep bleep"..."bappity bappity bap"..."click click"..."ah-oooga"......"narf"...."zot"
"oogity-boogity-boo"..."gazzizza"!!!
"wibbiddy wibbiddy wap"..."freun-laven"..."fweep-fweep"..."whinny whinny whinny".."wapata wapata"..."weeeeee"

Just thought I should point out (though I find it unusual that you wouldn't know this, considering your "doctorate in languages") that "aks" was actually the original pronunciation of what is now accepted as "ask".

The word "ask" originally came from the word "acsian". By the time people settled North America in the 1400's though, the word had been shortened to "aks". Like with many words (especially those combining the "s" and "c" sounds) metathesis occured, and some people began to pronounce the word as "ask".

Because of animosity between the North and the South, the North started consistently pronouncing it as "ask" and put pressure on the public school system to have it taught that way as well. "Aks" became stigmatized as the "souther/uneducated" pronunciation, though at this point had yet to be associated with African Americans.

Ultimately, under pressure fromthe North, all public schools(PS) adopted that pronunciation. Because african americans were not allowed access to PS at that time, they continued to learn that it was pronounced as "ask".

It's less a matter of "ebonics" as it is your lack of historical knowledge. Get educated love :)
In reference to the use of "aks" as an example of the controversial term "ebonics", AKS and ASK were for a long time both accepted ways to pronounce what is now most widely accepted as "Ask"

Ebonics- are simply english words that have different meanings, and used most of the time in a different context, from what the "norm" would consider to be it's definition.
For example: Crib- this term usually will describe a bed for a baby. On the other hand the ebonical term would have the definition as being- a house, a home, or wherever you live.

Another example would be a popular word: Boo
Boo is known in the dictionary as a word used to express dissatisfaction or contempt, especially at a speaker or performer. However Boo in ebonics can mean a good friend, or a girlfriend. It is used a term of endearment.

All the other stuff you all are writing about is simply called ignorance and is not associated with ebonics in my book.
