discovered language of Ebonics.

BeBe was snug in the crib
in the back bedroom, cuz that's how we live.
And Moms in her do-rag and me with my nine,
had just gotten busy cuz girlfriend is fine.
All of a sudden
a lowrider rolled by,
Bumpin' phat beats cuz the system's fly.
I bounced to the window at a quarter pas'
'Bout ready to pop a cap in somebody's ass!
yelled to my lady, Yo peep this!
She said, Stop frontin' & just mind yo' bidness.
I said, for

We weren't even buggin', no worries, no doubt.
Cuz bumpin' an thumpin' from around da way
Was Santa, 8 reindeer and a sleigh.
Da beats was

I said, "Yo red Dawg, you all that!"
He threw up a sign and yelled to his boyz,

He slid down the fire exscape smoove as a cat,
and busted the window wit' a b-ball bat.
I said, "Whassup,

To tap that booty waitin' at home.
And all I heard as he cruised outta sight,
