I've got the "Biscuits" bug... Could anyone help me to understand its CHORUS correctly, please? What the whole song is about, actually? What do biscuits refer to? Apart from commonly known meaning (as a cookie,) I know a biscuit can also mean a sex-bomb (a very attractive girl) or piece of cake (something really easy.)

[Chorus: Ghostface Killah]
Yo, what up? Meet, these, O.G.'s, quote these and
Baller' shit, long biscuits
Fuck around, take all your shit
Call your bluff, y'all faggots don't want no beef
Grind your teeth, and just, roll with it, don't risk it
Fuck around, and be a statistic


PS: And what about INTRO? How to get it right, huh? Ghostface Killah says,
Yo... who the fuck brought me this chocolate shit, man?
I said a banana nutriment, man
Ya'll heard the fuck I said... I gave you.
I wrote it on the fuckin' paper, man
Ya'll muthafuckas always fuck around and forgettin' something and shit
Smart dumb niggaz and shit, runnin' around here and shit
Ya'll niggaz need to wisen up, man, yo..
Fuck that special ed, shit

OG = Original gangsta

beef = argument

grind your teeth = keep your mouth shut

be a statistic = another murder statistic


the intro refers to an assistant that brought him the wrong drink, ripping the people around him as idiots

You're appreciated, dawg! Nevertheless one thing is still a mystery for me--Call your bluff (cf. chorus)

bluff, = poker term used to describe someone who is pretending to be stronger than they are, they are either weak or have nothing

call your bluff = he made a strong move and ghost stepped up to the challenge, didn't fold under the pressure

One of the few tracks I really liked off that album.

Is it just me or did Tru Master flip the same sample he used for Fish?

Nah, I ain't no kid... Probably you're gonna get taken aback, but... I'm 26 now! I ain't no American (or even Canadian, as you are,) so believe me... sometimes it's really difficult for me to get a song the right way, nah'mean! I hail from Poland (Lublin, the largest city in Eastern Poland, is my home town.) I spent many many years in London (England) as well as the States... and even though I speak English (both British and American) fluently, this esoteric American hip-hop slang still amazes me and sometimes is all Greek to me! For real! You know what I'm saying, it ain't so easy for a Pole to be always up-to-date with it...

I bet you'd get into a state when you tried to translate a Polish hip-hop track, containing stacks of Polish hip-hop slang phrases! Got it? So it ain't like I don't understand anything, dawg! Just happens sometimes I don't dig some single words that seem to be crucial to get a song right! (E.g. ask a John Doe what "dead presidents" means, huh?)

Recapitulating, please forgive me my ignorance and inconvenience, but I think this forum is the right place to get some wisdom from ya'll... And hopefully we're even... However if I'm wrong and ya wanna diss me, I'll get out... so please lemme know if I'm some kinda "persona non grata" over hurr, a'ight? Holla @ me! Peace out for now! 1

You're right... I'm under the impression that True Master did use the same sample! Anyway, it ain't outta da question!

All good though, the two tracks still got a different vibe.

Exactly... it's all good! Both "Fish" and "Biscuits" are outstanding!

^^ I like Biscuits, but I personally wouldn't put it in the same class as Fish.

Gosh! You'll teach me English? Do I need it? What a sarcasm! Ya gotta be kiddin', mate! Can't I really speak English properly? Do you really think like that? Thus what shall I say about'chu, huh? As I guess, you yourself are not a native of any English-speaking country... so please don't consider yourself tha man! Nobody's perfect! As for your cutting taunts and the rest a your mockeries, I'ma pass 'em over in silence...

Not a problem, wera! But I had to put you in your place 'cause I wasn't sure you meant no harm! I was convinced you shoulda written "slang," but... we all make mistakes! Naaaaaaaah... I ain't too mad at'chu! It's hard to make me lose my temper! Peace...
