In my socks rapping (socks)

from Hannibal Buress – Gibberish Rap Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A nod to the great sock hops of the 1950’s, integral in the development of the rock ‘n’ roll genre, which later went on to become punk and then the obscure no-wave/noise scene of the 1970’s. Not long after, noise and no-wave beats were put to rappers rapping raps (a tradition since the 1960’s) in New York City. The fresh, simple styles of no-wave and the razor-sharp wit of rap combined to form a pungent cocktail that the whole world imbibed, first spawning the great legacy we call rap and hip hop.

Here Hannibal is once again giving credit to his roots in the game, while demonstrating impeccable modesty.
