The Diddy Decoder

The Martha Stewart Show, September 2005

Some Diddy songs can seem like they are in a different language. So, we asked Diddy to decode some of his lyrics.

Diddy says: Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers?
Translation: Want to be living the good life? Calling the shots?

Diddy says: Brawlers, who be dippin' in the Benz with the spoilers?
Translation: Do you want to be driving a Mecedes-Benz with spoilers on the back?

Diddy says: On the low from the Jake in the Taurus.
Translation: Keeping a low profile to avoid drawing the attention of a police officer who is driving a lesser car.

Diddy says: Tryin' to get my hands on some Grants like Horace.
Translation: Trying to earn lots of money ("Grants" are $50 bills; "Horace" refers to Horace Grant, a basketball player for the Chicago Bulls in the early 1990s.)
