Turnt up to be turnt down
It’s what the kush for, let's get burnt down

from Freddie Gibbs (Ft. YB) – Paper Lyrics on Rap Genius


We leave the past and see Gibbs– now reflecting over some good weed. A true thug burns down to forget the struggles of his past.

“Turnt up to get turnt down” has a couple meanings. The most obvious is amazing fadedness, but given the last few verses, it also probably means the ecstatic highs and lows of gangster life. “Turnt up” is the excitement of success. “turnt down” is the crash of getting caught.
