That banana clip, straight from the rip
Banana clip on the gun!
“Banana clip” is a slang term for a high capacity ammunition magazine, the component of a firearm that feeds cartridges into the chamber. To efficiently fit more ammunition into a magazine (especially single-stacked magazines) the design often implements a certain degree of curvature, making it resemble a banana. Kendrick previously used this term on “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst” off his debut major label album good kid, m.A.A.d city.
“Straight from the rip” means that it is fresh out of the box. You also rip, or break/peel a banana before consuming it.
