Aces high, my face is painless
This line puts a finer point on the title of the song. While some may have thought the song was a response to the classic Iron Maiden song of the same name, “aces high” refers to playing card games, wherein the ace card can be higher in value than kings or less in value than twos.
His “painless” face conveys that he wasn’t dealt a bad hand. Comparing life (and the rap game) to a card game is an admission that it’s part luck and part skill, and the stakes are always high. Naturally the rappers on this track are raking in the chips.
