If you've been paying attention, you may have noticed a very specific trend going on with freestyles over the last couple of weeks. A few rappers who had some of their biggest years in the early 00s -- Lloyd Banks, Fabolous, Papoose, etc. -- have been freestyling over beats from the 90s, or more often, the late 90s.
Tony Yayo has nailed this formula with his newest record, a remix of Big L's classic track, "Ebonics". As you well know, the original song was a lesson in lingo, and Yayo has updated it for us, going through terms such as IG, bando, and yes -- even trolls.
10 cars the fleet
10 bad broads on fleek
That mean 10 bad bitches in my condo suite
Get some roll up, that means cigars
Shwishas, dutches, or you can do the Backwoods
Actavis, that's the lean
The unit, that's the team
