  • Nina Blackburn : So, guys, what's the deal with the hats?

    Ice Cold : That's what NWH is all about. We got a whole hat philosophy, you know what I'm saying? I mean, see, back in the days when there was slaves and stuff, they would work in the hot sun all day, you know, with the sun beating down them. Hatless. I mean, not even a babushka.

    Tone Def : Word. Heads totally exposed to the sun.

    Ice Cold : You know, so by the time they got back to the plantation from being in all the heat, they was too tired to rebel against their masters, right? So what we saying with Niggaz With Hats is, "Yo, we got some hats now, muh-fuckers."

    Tasty Taste : And we ain't too tired to bust a cap in yo ass.

  • Nina Blackburn : What, if any, is the difference between a ho and a bitch?

    Tone Def : A ho fucks EVERYBODY.

    Ice Cold : Right, but a bitch fucks everybody BUT YOU.

  • Ice Cold : Right, but see actually that shit was supposed to be NWH: "Fear of a Black Hat," then subtitled "Don't Shoot Until You See the Whites."

    Nina Blackburn : Of their eyes?

    Ice Cold : Whose eyes?

    Nina Blackburn : Don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes.

    Ice Cold : Nah, don't shoot until you see the whites, period. That's it, end of story.

  • Nina Blackburn : So, what's the deal with the hats?

    Ice Cold : Shit, the hats're what NWH is all about. See, back in the day when there were slaves and stuff, we was forced to work in the hot sun all day, hatless. I mean, not even a babushka.

    Tone Def : Word. Heads totally exposed to the sun.

    Ice Cold : So when the slaves got back from the fields, they was too tired to revolt against they masters. So what we're sayin' now is: Yo, we got some hats now, muh-fuckas.

    Tasty Taste : And we ain't too tired to bust a cap in yo' ass.

  • Nina Blackburn : They say it's the quiet ones that you have to watch out for.

    Tasty Taste : And, if you've noticed, I ain't said shit for a couple minutes now.

  • Guy Friesch : Take away the pornography; take away, you know, the, you know, women-bashing; take away the kill-whitey stuff. Take it all away, and you've got the kids next door, you really do.

    Nina Blackburn : Next door to you?

    Guy Friesch : Not me.

  • Nina Blackburn : Are all these weapons registered with the state?

    Tasty Taste : The state of siege, heh heh.

  • Tasty Taste : This is a bazooka, see? And you just pick this up like this. It's-it's-it's-it's kind of heavy. But I figured if I couldn't pick it up, I need to have it.

    Nina Blackburn : Why would you need a bazooka?

    Tasty Taste : Well, sometimes you gotta take out stuff like a bus or a building, or a *bunch* of muhfuckas.

    Nina Blackburn : Do you worry that you have a lot of enemies, more than the average guy?

    Tasty Taste : So what you tryin' to say? You tryin' to say that I'm, like, paranoid 'n stuff? Do I look like the kind of person that would be paranoid? I mean, when you rollin' with THIS, would *you* be paranoid?

  • Ice Cold : I'll show you my new book I'm working on. "FYM" by Ice.

    Nina Blackburn : "FYM?"

    Ice Cold : Yeah. "Fuck Ya'll Motherfuckers."

  • Nina Blackburn : Are you planning a follow-up to this book?

    Ice Cold : For certain, because I got a lot more to say. I think it's going to be called, "ASMD." "And Suck My Dick." I was going to call it "ASMBD," "And Suck My Black Dick." But I'm a cocoa-colored motherfucker so that wouldn't really work.

  • Nina Blackburn : So where are you guys from? Compton? The sewer?

    Tone Def : Nah, that shit is for punks.

    Ice Cold : Yeah, we don't like to say where we from.

    Nina Blackburn : I thought all rappers like telling people where they're from.

    Tone Def : That's like a muh-fucka saying he got a big dick and can fuck for hours.
