African American Vernacular English - Part 2

What it is y'all homies? How y'all been lately?

Been shufflin' up and down da streets and came up wif dis idea of postin' about AAVE in AAVE.
Y'all finna see what African American Vernacular English is fo' real. Ya might be thinkin' it hard, don't ya evah think so. I done been into AAVE studies since 2003 and I do appreciate da way peepz approach me to aks me questions on its grammatical features and lexicon.

So what'cha gon' do tomar? I ain't got nuttin' to do otha than hit da mall wit some of mah homeboys Jay and Jeff to chat 'bout our rap presentation at the Federal University of Minas Gerias.

Peep the figure above out. It's off da hook da way they represent da way Shenigua, whose name was chosen by some def'ly prejudice douche-bag, would pronounce da numbers.

Fa - Five
Fo - Four
Na - Nine

Gotta peel out y'all. Holla atcha boys and girls later on.
