Staying in the cut like a new incision
Being in the cut can refer to a place that is hard to find, or to a rapper being at the top of their game (Kid Cudi’s ‘Indicud’ album title supposedly refers to him being ‘In the cut’). A track can also be known as a ‘cut’.
These are not necessarily mutually exclusive: Kweli might be saying that he is at the top of his game on this track, which is a difficult place to reach. Of course, a cut normally refers to an incision.
