Metaphor, and 1

from Joe Budden (Ft. Ab-Soul) – Cut From a Different Cloth Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Could be seen as “metaphor, plus another one”, meaning his songs contains a lot of metaphors, after one comes another one.

Also, in Greek, the prefix meta- is generally less esoteric than in English; Greek meta- is equivalent to the Latin words post- or ad-.

Therefore, after four (phor), comes 5. Ab-Soul could continue with his album line: Control System sold 5 500 copies in 3 days (or first week), maybe he pushed another one thousand right after.

Also an “And 1” in basketball is when you score and get fouled on the play, Soul refers to his extra metaphor as an “And 1”
