POS: Yo what's up man, my name is Pos. 
MASE: What's up, I'm Mase. Yo, shorty, what's your name? 
JEFF: Oh, my name? Jeff. You guys are walking? Now rappers ain't
supposed to walk. 
POS: Sorry little man, but you know... 
JEFF: Jeff. I told you, my name is Jeff. If you guys are rappers, 
where's your dukey gold chains? Y'all don't have no dukey gold chains. 
MASE: We don't wear gold chains, we'd rather spend our money on 
more important things like, women, necessities... 
DE LA SOUL: And video games! 
JEFF: Y'all are crazy. No chains, dag. Okay, where's your BMW? 
You're not supposed to walk. Where's your jeeps, your Maximas? 
DOVE: Maximas? Yo, Maxin' would break my flow. And with the cause of 
gas, Jeff man, I'd rather take the transit that's mass. 
JEFF: What you say? You are C-R-A-Z-E-E. Crazee. Don't you know you 
can't be def if you don't have no gold? Or a car, man? What's up? 
MASE: Who told you that? 
JEFF: Everybody who's def has gold, cars, money, girls, clothes... 
MASE: Wait a minute, wait a minute, shorty, you're buggin'. Do you like
Plug Tunin' and
JEFF: Yeah that song's def. 
POS: But we don't wear no gold chains, nor do we ride BMW's and 
Maxes or Jeeps, yet you still think our music is def, right? Wait a
minute. Did I say 'def'? 
JEFF: What? 
POS: Nothing, nothing. It's just that we don't deal with all that 
materialistic stuff, but we still got what it takes to please and 
supply our listeners, understand my man? 
JEFF: Where's your beepers? Why don't you have beepers? Everybody 
wears beepers. You have to have beepers to look down. 
MASE: AAAUUGHHH! Little man is brainwashed indeed! 
DOVE: Nah, nah. Beepers are the least of status situators, man. Plus 
I find them ugly as parking tickets. 
JEFF: You guys talk funny. 
POS: Well actually our verbal is kinetic, so when released flow A to 
Z is perfectly pitched in andvance in intricacy. 
JEFF: Yeah you homeboys are really bugged. 
POS: Wait a minute. Did he say... 
MASE: Bugged? 
JEFF: So no car, no beepers, no gold. That's weak man, that's weak. 
DOVE: Jesus, did he say 'weak?' Jesus, they never learn. 
POS: Foolish mind, have I, have I. 
MASE: Actin' like that lady! 
DE LA SOUL: That lady! 
POS: Peace, my brother...
