I'm not in the zone, there's too much in the way
I weigh two bucks and if I had two slugs to spray
Like raa raa, Glenn Beck better
Shad is using the term “in the zone” in two ways. Both as a basketball term (you’ll hear more of these) meaning they are lacking on defense and as a way of saying that he is not enjoying success as a rapper.
While admitting his lack of success as a rapper, he still wants to change the world. And he hints that one way he might do this is taking shots (literal or figurative) at poisonous reactionaries like Glenn Beck, who in 2010 was the leading face of Tea Party conservatism. The “"raa raa!” sound his bullets make nods at Busta Rhymes in Scenario.
He says that Glenn Beck better duck (foie gras is made of duck liver), but he quickly walks back the threat. Bill O'Reilly, another Fox News television personality, dubs his show the “No Spin Zone” — this may be reflected in the “zone” referenced above.
