But you can't spell war without an A-R
It is true, that without the -ar, War would simply be spelt “W”.
Of course there is more to the line in that “A-R” is the abbreviation for “assault rifle”, something most people use in war if they plan on winning (which Cyhi does)…
Additionally Cyhi introduces the next line with 15. The AR-15 is a automatic weapon used by the United States Military, similar to the M-16.
This may also be talking about when A&Rs try to change young artists into something they are not so as to make them more popular. Often resulting in a war between the artist and the label.
