I ain't tryna kiss up, suck up, feed gas
I ain't like them nigga you sucking your teeth at,
Wale shows all the sides he’s not . He creates a double entendre of guy personalities trying to spit at girls with these phrases:
- They could refer to that guy who’s just a kiss-ass (Kissing up, sucking up, feeding gas) to his girl to where she bites her lip at him to get more sucking up and feeding her ego
- Or they could refer to the opposite: a guy that fucks his girl a lot (kiss up, suck up, feed gas in a different sense)
In Nigeria, the country of Wale’s Ancestry. Sucking your teeth at someone or making the “tschewwww” sound is a common form of derision. When someone makes that sound at you, it means that you are nothing and are not worth their time. In some ways sucking your teeth at someone is similar to giving someone the middle finger to show that you do not like the person.
