Top five dead or alive thinking I fit the five
Many rappers include the usual “top five dead or alive” line sooner or later in a track. Usually, it’s to pay homage to those that they look up too. However, here Joey is saying that he fits in his top five, which means he himself is his favorite rapper.
In an interview Joey said in 2010 his favorite rapper was J. Cole. In 2011, his favorite rapper was Kendrick Lamar. Now in 2012, he says he is his own favorite rapper. His exact words were in fact:
I mean, like yo, literally things have just been happenin' right before my eyes. Like whatever I think, literally, it happens, it comes true. Like, you build your own reality type of thing. Anything that I’ve ever dreamed about is just happening right before my eyes, at such a young age. I always knew that would happen but I never thought it would be this serious.
This is the video where he talks about it. Head straight to 4:50 to get there quick..
Quick heads-up, they might be high.
