    Re: Listening help

    Can you not understand any of it?! We expect learners to make their own attempt first so please post a transcript of the words you can understand, leaving spaces for the words you can't make out, and we'll try to help you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Of course I can. It sounds to me "what I drop down in a boosted chest ", but I can't give no meaning to it.

    It sounds to me like "Put the drunk/trunk down in a busted chest". Admittedly, that makes no sense at all but I don't listen to that kind of "music" at all so perhaps it makes sense to someone who does!

    By the way, every instance of the word "I" should have been capitalised in post #1, not just two of them.

    Well, that's the mobile keyboard with auto-correct in Italian instead of English.

    Then you'll have to override it.

    That's what I thought, though there's no /t/ at the end of chest, but chess makes even less sense.

    In the rapper's dialect, "chest" is pronounced like ​chess.
    I am not a teacher.
