Now me and Justin smoke sherm and been talking 'bout freeing perms
And purchasing weapons, naming them and aim 'em in One Direction
Shout outs to Tyler’s homie Swaggie..
Even though Tyler claims he doesn’t do drugs, he references recent events where Bieber came under fire for allegedly smoking weed with fellow artist Lil Twist. Bieber ended up apologizing for smoking pot in the third person on late night comedy show Saturday Night Live.
Tyler uses his next reference in crafty fashion, exaggerating Biebers “drug use” to grab a quick headline by creating a double entendre on “Freeing perm”:
Reference to the drug, which is commonly known as a relaxer. Hence being free
Further reference to the hairstyle perm which involves women intentionally curling their hair. This is ironic as the drug perm is actually used to straighten hair!
Note this may also be a reference to Tylers apparent “secret twitter account” — Freeperm
In addition he makes a nice quip about popular British boy band One Direction. Himself and Mr Bieber will be purchasing fire arms to (seemingly) kill the members of One Direction. Just last year Justin was photographed with a prop gun, which caused much outrage and panic among his fans.. As One Direction are Biebers direct competition this would seem likely, as well as naming guns — a practice common among gun owners.
