Tell me if it matters that I sing it wrong
Another DJ yells "Lick the balls"
Another Brooklyn kite delivered in his crooked paws

from El-P – Drones Over BKLYN Lyrics on Rap Genius


In these lines El-P could be showing his disdain for the aesthetic judgements of the music industry. Radio DJs expect to be pandered to in order have your music aired since they imagine they are your only hope of being noticed outside of the ghetto.

Lick the Balls” is the last song on Slick Rick’s debut album, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. In light of this, El-P could instead be talking about hip-hop artists relying on overplayed tribute-cum-clichė lines instead of being original.
