Something sinister to it,
Earl’s music often has a dark, evil feel to it.
This hook is in reference to his life and struggle, which had something sinister to it, as seen from his verses.
Given the final verse talking about his frustration with the press and the industry, this could easily refer to his feelings toward the rap game as a whole. There’s something sinister to it and he is wary.
