And ups to shut

from Earl Sweatshirt – Earl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

As it’s unclear whether this line is “ups to shut” or “ups to chuck”, you can take it one of three ways.

  1. After Earl forcefucks a girl, he threatens her, telling her he’ll kill her if she tells anybody — thus, “shut up”.

  2. Earl’s popping pills — more specifically “upper/ups”; stimulants that would make raping that much easier.

  3. Earl’s done too much of something (probably alcohol) and is vomiting his guts out, or is “upchucking”.
