But the strangest things can happen from rapping
When niggas get wrapped up in image and acting
When rappers become famous, they get caught up in it, and begin to think their shit don’t stink.
Likely thinly veilded criticism of Ice Cube, who left music behind to do “Boyz n the Hood” and the “Friday” movies
Another possible explanation: Rappers tell stories when they rhyme. Those stories aren’t always entirely true, though. A lot of rappers get so far into their acts and stories that they end up believing them and, as the next two lines suggest, get a rude wake-up call
