To make em smile, now rake it into piles
And go buy ya self some style, prom night/cat walk
Prepared the suit for weeks, or effortless as a Parisian
Walking down the street, I ain't in it
The prom night and cat walk would both be events designed to show off fancy clothes. You can either be dedicated and use effort on mastering a suit, or be easy and smooth like a resident of Paris, France.
Lu himself reserves these elegant clothing pieces for special occasions rather than for everyday wear.
Also, when combined with the next line, a thinly veiled reference to the classic Flying Lotus beat, “Parisian Goldfish” off the Los Angeles record (tying in with previous allusions to LA)
