See what happen when niggas try to go toe to toe
This what happen when you let a blood bath overflow
Used to do lines, how could they wanna go blow for blow
I could overdose and still drag you niggas comatose
Joe has used very similar bars before on “Aftermath”:
Going “toe-to-toe” means competing directly against each other, whether it be through music or a fight. Joey has no problem with either considering he has dissed his fellow SH member in the past and gotten into a fight with Consequence.
A “bloodbath” is generally used to describe a grueling scene with immense amounts of gore, blood, and violence. Here Joe has put a little spin on it, using bath as in bathtub. Overflowing a bathtub of blood could be a bloodbath.
Used to do lines, half em didn’t wanna go blow for blow
Joe and other rappers compared lines, probably in the form of a rap battle or something to see who could write the best.
Doing lines of coke. Blow is slang for cocaine, so snorting cocaine could be referred to as doing lines, or blowing.
I could overdose and still drag, you niggas comatose
Another Double Entendre
It’s been no secret that Joe had many problems with drugs in his past and has even relapsed several times.
He is so accustomed to their effects, that even if he were to overdose, he could take another drag and be fine while you’re laying there unconscious.
After going blow for blow (drugs or punches, it doesn’t matter at this point), Joey will have to drag your dead body away.
