I'mma pass your classes, I'mma learn your craft
I'mma fuck your daughters, I'mma burn your flag
COLE’S TAKING AMERICA DOWN. ARE YOU WITH HIM OR NOT? But for real, Cole’s not proud to be an American. We’re a screwed up society. He’s going to abide by the system to learn it and eventually destroy it from the inside. .
It also appears Cole is comparing America to the rap game in the sense that he’s deep in the rap game. Now that he’s “learned the craft,” he’s taking the risk of bringing it all down. It appears Born Sinner will revolutionize rap and society as we all know it. COLE WORLD…no snuggie…
When he’s talking about learning their craft, he is talking about politics, government, and businesses of America. He majored in communications and minored in business at St. John’s University. He is saying that he studied all their classes already, and he learned what they do in the government and politics. He also mentions talking about politics in his song Get Free Coleworld. He is gonna do everything from the inside out though.
“Learn your craft” can also mean to learn the “white-collar” type of jobs — jobs that inner-city kids (sort of like Cole was) aren’t prepared for in school.
For example,inner-city schools offer less “advanced” courses and rarely use the Critical Thinking sections in textbooks that are incredibly useful in college and post-grad education.
Instead, those kids (or basically any kid who isn’t in a rich situation/area/environment) are prepared for “blue collar” jobs.
In this verse, he’s flipping off the bad deal society gave him and taking over society.
