Lulls lukewarm lullabies in your left ear
Competing with "Set it Off," in the right

from Outkast – SpottieOttieDopaliscious Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

André describes the dichotomy that exists in a young man surrounded by alluring women and other brash young men at a party. On one hand, he wants to succumb to the “lullabies” this fine young girl is whispering into his ear and slip out the back door with her. But on the other, he wants to get into the fray with his peers and “set it off”, throwing elbows and acting unruly.

This could also be a reference to the song “Set it Off” by Strafe, whose hook says “set it off on the left y'all, set it off on the right”:
