- "Stop snitching" obviously comes from Freemasonry.
- "Grip" was a word from the 90's meaning a lot of money
- The rap group De La Soul has referred to Long Island, NY as "Strong Island."
- "Dame" was another word from the 90's, meaning a "bitch." It probably comes from "Chevaliers de l'Ordre de Notre-Dame de Sion." Isis has been called "The Black Madonna" and "Notre-Dame de Lumiere."
- The word "hood" refers not to hooded sweatshirts, but to the Gnostic Christians who inspired Freemasonry. The word "hood" was also a nickname for the Rothschilds, who snuck around in hoods. "Robbin' hoods" were bankers who robbed people of their money. During a Masonic initiation, the candidate is "hood-winked"
- Raising of the pant leg and opening the shirt or jacket to bare a "breast" comes from Masonic initiation rituals. For the 1st degree, it's the left side, and for the 2nd degree, it's the right side. During the 80's and 90's people would also wear overalls or a sweatshirt with a bare "breast." In the early 90's women also wore tight button-down shirts so that their breasts were bare from the side.
- "B" comes from the bee, which is an Ancient Egyptian symbol and a symbol used in Freemasonry.
- "G" comes from the Freemasonic concept of "generativity." That is why black music has so much sex in it.
- "Fat" (phat) in German is "dick."
- The "God" in Freemasonry is the male erection. Cultures many 1000's of years ago noticed that it produces "life." Freemasonry exists to pass on these "ancient secrets."
- The "Earth" has always been used in Freemasonry to symbolize the female half of the reproductive process. Gold and oil (semen) are "the immortal part of man which bring warmth to the Earth and set her streams running free."
- The phrase "to bone" comes from the Hebrew word "boneh" which means "builder." It is also a Hebrew colloquialism meaning a woman who accepts the child of her husband's mistress.
- "Son" comes from Hiram Abiff, the "widow's son."
- "To build" in hip-hop culture means to nurture a new relationship.
- "Snakes" and "biters" probably refer to the Oroborous.
- A "style" is a tool in Freemasonry given to a candidate during an initiation ritual.
- Using one system of encoding used in hip-hop as well as prison culture, "style" was often changed into "steeze." The word "cheese" can also be code for "chisel" (a tool of a mason). This introduces another system of encoding, where the word "#" is changed into "shizzle."
- "Fly" probably refers to either the phoenix or Isis, who is sometimes depicted with wings.
- "Props" are used during Masonic rituals.
- The "pound" is actually the Masonic "Five Points of Fellowship."
- The East Coast/West Coast and East Side/West Side rivalries have their roots in Freemasonic lore, which describes a rivalry between the knights of the east and the knights of the west. The double-headed eagle represents rule over both sides.
- Hip-hop culture and Masonic "temples" originate in the north-east.
- "To break north" then obviously means to break ground for a new temple.
- New York is a hub for York Rite Freemasons.
- Rapper Wyclef has referred to New Jersey as "New Jerusalem."
- "Duke" probably comes from the Duke of York.
- A "master of ceremonies" is present at every Masonic lodge.
- "Sword" refers to Tyler's Sword, which guards the Book of Constitutions. This is part of a Masonic initiation.
- The phrase "It's on" probably comes from "Jah-Bul-On."
- "To fall back" and "pull up" obviously come from the initiation rite of a Master Mason.
- The phrase "I can't and I won't" comes from the same initiation rite.

Please Tell me you are kidding. The people who started hip hop didnt know anything about Freemasons. It was a pass time in the 'Hood' aka neighborhood. The lengths some will go to connect Freemasonry with everything, just sad.
