Yo, got the fake patois
KRS One did a fake patois
Miss Cleo got a fake patois
Even Jay-Z did a fake patois
Bad Brains had a fake patois
My man Snow had a fake patois
Even Jim Carrey fuck with the patois
So you know he come through with the fake patois

Patois, got the fake patois
You come through with the fake patois
Patois patois patois
Fake, fake patois

Right near my reach is the fire for the streets

All the sudden had a fake patois
Even Busta Rhymes kinda sound patois
Maybe just enjoy it, make it look patois
When he speak, he just speak, but to me patois

With the leaders of the new, but it's sure (??)

Here come the hotstepper with fire (?)
Yeah, winner play games
It's fake patois, winner take names
Don't want test me, make one take aim
Crunch like Nestle, snipe from the planes
Snipe like Wesley, punch like Hawaiian
Snipe from the planes, yeah we shoot while we flyin'

    General Commentseems a pretty simple meaning, it's just criticizing people not of Carribean descent for using Patois. DR have said they dislike Matisyahu, and he's a white jewish guy giving it the creole, so I think it's a racial thing, like I as a white guy wouldn't go around putting on a Zimbabwean accent, so why is patois a perfectly fine thing to bastardize?

    That's my view on it at least.
