Kittens soft but in they songs be trapping hard as Jeezy, I don't believe it
Vince here is criticizing faux rappers who claim to be gangsters as if they were living the life real gangster rappers do like Young Jeezy, but actually they are just as soft as kittens.
A lot of rappers like to front on songs like they are thugs, these kind of rappers are known as “studio gangsters.” People who claim to have done they things they talk about in their music but in reality they haven’t.
Also a reference to the 2009 song “Hard” by Rihanna featuring Young Jeezy… get it?
