MC's are like sperm cells, a gang of us
Fighting to reach the egg, biting and lose a leg
Odds are like 1 to 10 million,

from GZA – 7 Pounds Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The mc’s are so numerous and they are all trying to reach the distant (and practically unachievable goal). GZA compares their numbers, desire and low chance of success to sperm. He does this because sperm are so numerous.

The average man has over 15 million sperm per milliliter according to the WHO in 2010.. Each man carries around 255 million sperm and one one can fertilize the egg.

Fun tip for all the lads reading this : “You know you can bring a sperm count to zero by taking hot baths every other day for a month,” Turek explained. “It’ll take you three months to recover. It’ll go to zero.”
