Probably going to deserve a late pass here. Is this a shot at Jay? Stakes is high came out around the same time as Readinable Doubt I believe so it would have been early into Jays career so I don't know. Did Jay bite Pos or am I reaching here?
Here is the whole line:
Plug Wonder why back in the day who soaked his words in jigga So when I ran a phrase in June you didn't catch it til December

>I was born in the Boogie Down catscan
I think he is referring to the tight space generally thought of when you think of Bronx housing in the 60's and 70's. The catscan referencing over-crowding, tight living qtrs, etc.
>where my building fell down on the rats and
I am assuming his childhood building may have been condemned/demolished? Just a guess here.....
>people sorta super wanna trip to the penile (penile) >While I settle off the shores of the Long Isle
I think this is a reference to escaping the harsh life of the Bronx, and to a more suburban Long Island...sort of a "they got caught up and I made it out" kind of statement.
>My father's clean not mean my mind is clear when I transmit >I am the man ner of the family cuz the pants fit
I think this is another direct reference to his often declared non-use of weed and other substances. Not sure if your quote is exactly verbatim, but even still, i think its a loose way of saying "I don't smoke cuz I am responsibly heading a family."
>I want to let forensics prove, that I can mends >Groove wit the thread from needle outta hay, wanna say
Hahaha...this line is so dope. Just a clever battle line saying "let it be known i can flow in a variety of situations and pull a style out my ass that still crushes...." lol...i love this line
of course, i am probably half wrong....but seeing it written out, thats what I can gather....
