Acting like you've never seen a tooth that's carat-capped

from Earl Sweatshirt (Ft. Vince Staples) – Burgundy Lyrics on Rap Genius



It’s stupid for people to doubt Earl’s abilities, as if they’ve never seen a skilled rapper before. He’s probably talking to hip-hop fans who have criticized his style, or critics that have denounced the content of his lyrics, etc. If his tooth is “carat-capped”, then he’s spitting gold, diamond, etc. meaning that he got skills. Essentially he is saying, “You act like you’ve never seen someone with talent live up to their potential before”.
