I’m high, I split an O in half, now it’s a parenthesis

from Big Sean – I Do It Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He smoked half of the ounce of weed (that’s too much!) so now all he has left is one of these: )

Big Sean brings punctuation marks in here. A Parenthesis is a synonym for Brackets also known as the signs ‘’()‘’ so when Big Sean raps ‘'I split an O in half, now it’s a parenthesis’‘ he refers to the brackets that forms the letter O when put together like this ’‘()’‘ but becomes separated like this ’‘( )’‘ when he splits them in half which makes it a parenthesis/bracket.

Sean borrows this line from Pat Piff in his song, “You Already Know”. Pat is Sean’s good friend and also Detroit native.
