They say signs of the end is near
further interpretation of this line: I think since this was the first track on the mix-tape it was an opening line to the theme of the mix-tape. Everyone was talking about the end of the world in 2012 so Pro Era named it Peep the APROcalypse; as if what ever happens their still rapping and rep-pin the east coast through it. So Commons line fits the theme perfectly. “They say signs of the end is near” A nice starting verse
In addition, Common released an album called Like Water For Chocolate. Perhaps they took the track title from there, but the original idiom means to be angry, whereas they seem rather at peace here. A slightly darker, obviously not intentional, meaning; Capital STEEZ took his own life a few days after this tape was released. His end was near.
