, when he really hit star mode
The first few lines of this verse concern themselves with what Quasimoto, an alias of DOOM’s beat-maker in this musical duo, Madlib, would refrain from doing once he gained fame and notoriety.
“Star Mode” is a video game reference, considering Quas’s essentially digitized flow. Star Mode in guitar hero is when you hit the beat perfect, and in Mario Kart it gives you invincibility and a boost. In this case, (not) boosting loose phillies.
“Star mode” is also a metaphor for getting high — much alike Method Man’s “kiss the sky”-metaphor.
