You are running through a mysterious dungeon, when you see a large room, which you enter.

Inside there is a man and a woman, one is a truth teller, and one a liar. However when they write they always tell the truth. Behind them are two chests, one contains the crown of rappers (good), and the other contains a poisonous snake (very, very bad).

The woman shouts at you "Trust me and use the chest on the right!"

The man has lost his voice. He starts making clicking sounds and turning the lights on and off, but you are looking very confused, so he just passes you a note, unfortunately it appears to be in hip-hop-script

The note:

Cipher note

Which chest should you open?

The Note is Morse Code (Hip Hop script) for

I
-
A
M
-
A
N
T
H
O
N
Y
-
R
A
Y
(Hip Hop)

Or

I am Anthony Ray (Hip Hop)

Which is a reference to

Sir-Mix-A-Lot

We know that this is true, as they both tell the truth when they write.

So from @Roger's answer:

I like big butts and I cannot lie

So

The man is the truth-teller and the lady is lying so

You should

Open the chest on the left

Thanks to @BeastlyGerbil, we know the message translates to:

I AM ANTHONY RAY (Sir-Mix-a-Lot)

Since we know this to be true, we also know two things about him.

He likes big butts, and he cannot lie.

Therefore,

He is the truth teller, and the woman is lying, so you should open the chest on the left.
