“Stutter” by Joe (ft. Mystikal)

You know how sometimes when a person is lying, they’ll get nervous and start stuttering? That is the anatomical quirk, if you will, that the title is meant to point us to. And the person who is committing this crime of morality, in the eyes of the vocalist, would be the addressee, his significant other.

Or as relayed, due to various clues he has come across, Joe suspects her of cheating. And upon confronting her, the addressee stuttering in response to rebutting these accusations is further proof that yes, she is in fact being unfaithful. And understandably, being under the impression that he’s being lied ‘to his face’ concerning such an already-upsetting matter as his girl bonking by another man, is making the vocalist even more angry.
