Hold up, my plan is forming, alright, casing this building
Watch these rappers that rappin' walk in and leave out with millions
Macklemore is talking about the music industry today where it appears that a rapper gets signed by a major label and he instantaneously gets millions of dollars. He accomplishes this imagery by using a metaphor which compares himself to a thief casing, or keeping watch over, a building he plans to rob. He see’s other thieves (rappers) accomplishing this and it gives him confidence in his plan.
