Took the G out your waffle, all you got left is your ego
Eggo Waffles minus a ‘g’ = Ego
But it gets better. Think about this line as a food=money concept. Gambino is boasting that his verses are so hot people will buy his shit over yours, taking the ‘G’ out your “waffle” (all those 0s from your paycheck), leaving you with no money and a bruised ego.
This might also be wordplay about “gangster” rappers and their lack of substance. If you take the “G” (gangster) out of the waffle (babbling meaningless talk), then all they have about is ego.
Just on a further note. Waffle is also a term for speaking without really saying shit– no substance to what these guys are saying.
Behind all the talking and without the ‘g’, these rappers don’t have shit.
