Things changed when I hassled back, so

from Earl Sweatshirt (Ft. Tyler The Creator) – Couch Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Once Earl fought back (literally and with his “smart mouth and quick wit”) against the teasing of his friends and peers, they gained respect for him (or at least stopped teasing him)

On his Formspring, Earl talks about the other members of OF picking on him when he first met them. The intro to this album, “Thisniggaugly” is kind of a reenactment.
