I promise, honest
Karma got me balling up my fist

from Earl Sweatshirt (Ft. Domo Genesis) – Knight Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is an allusion to the opening lines of “Hive,” a revisitation of those lines:

Promise Heron I’ll put my fist up
After I get my dick sucked

He reestablishes the promise: he really will raise his fist (consciously fight for the good in the world) until he “demolishes your clique” and whatever it stands for.
