I don't wait, I marinate, variate erryday
Instead of sitting around being shook by the crazy shit he’s seen, Sean assesses the situation around him, soaks in the information (“marinate”) and adapts accordingly to deal with it (“variate”).
But there’s another spin, in here:
He doesn’t wait: even when Sean isn’t doing what he does and spitting, he’s learning more about his passion and gaining more experience.
He marinates: soaking up new ideas and styles, adding flavor to his always-improving game.
He variates: marinating enables him to variate his game, a new (but not too new — Sean’s still Sean) guy, every song. Except when the subject matter is ass. See the song of the same name and the G.O.O.D. hit, “Mercy”.
