You can dead that, get a hearse, go
Don't need 48 you'll find a killer in the first floor
It was me boy, to commercials
He’s changing what commercial music can sound like, considering that a song generally has three verses, each containing 16 bars, totaling 48 bars in your typical radio hit. But Lupe doesn’t need 48 bars to find a killer track, he will kill it in the first 4(nearly homonymous with floor).
This creates a reference to the real life show about solving murders called “First 48” in which 48 is referring to hours (2 days).
In the next line he says “it was me boy, to commercial”. Lupe is saying that he is the killer, now it’s time for the show to go to the commercials.
