This year, I ain’t prepared to take my next L
Last year, I got X but this year, I excel,
There´s a lot going on here…
Hes referring the the X he got from Diddy when Diddy dropped him. He got the X but this year he excels.
Not ready for his next L (loss) like he did last year. Play on words, X –> XL. From an Extra to Extra Large. XXL is also a hip-hop magazine, that didn’t mention him (X´d) in their freshman class.
He´s saying this year he´ll make the list, excel and in doing that oushine everybody else. Excel is also computer program, is he saying he as good at deciphering and calculating as the program? Excel is also a homophone of XL.
In one of the latest issues of XXL magazine, they did a story of the next up and coming rappers, called the Freshmen Class. Los was shafted and was not selected as one of the next big rappers. Even though he is better than the majority of the rappers chosen, he doesn’t want to focus energy hating on XXL, as he plans to just “excel” instead.
