Meanwhile you treated all of us like other niggas
Now your world is in my palm, take cover niggas
While he was grinding hard and was gaining fans day by day and hour by hour, he was underestimated and underappreciated. Now, having made it big in just a few months, dropping a hit mixtape and now his debut album, the general rap population is fond of him and his popularity is still building to an unimaginable level.
There is a hidden allusion here. He says “your world is in my palm, take cover niggas”, and right after he does a gunshot sounds in the song, as if ASAP fired at them, saying “take cover”. But when firing, the gun would be in his palm, so he is implying that “these other niggas” only live for superficial things like guns, and he has one in his hand, and is using it against them. People flocking to superficial things, and to the fame he has is a theme in this song.
