Ebonics

Ebonics is a semi-offensive term used to describe the accent and unique terminology of urban African Americans.

Ebonics is also a 1998 single by ibs. The lyrics of the song are entirely made up of slang explainations:

Check it, my weed smoke is my lye A ki of coke is a pie When Im lifted, Im high With new clothes on, Im 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 Im freakin it I talk with slang and ima never stop speakin it
