German term or phrase: bekomm doch den track von dir oder?
bekomm doch den track von dir oder?
curt
English translation:I will get that track of you? or: Will I still get that track of you?
Explanation:
By 'track' is meant a particular piece of music, and I suppose it is originaly an english term, but nowadays it is frequently used in german instead of 'Stück'or'Lied', as slang, and by young people.
I ommited the translation of 'oder',since its meaning here is: am I,or am I not getting that track of you?
(which would also be a way of translating that phrase), but the issue of 'oder', this question, is implied through the question mark.

I will get the track from you, won't I?


Explanation:
track (especially with the small t) is not a German noun, but maybe you understand the relevance of it. Whatever it is the asker is concerned that he will get it off you, but unsure if he will...

Explanation:
It should be: I'll get the track FROM you...

'track of you' means the track with you (you singing or similar) on it
