Saying it's just rap and them lines ain't true
Q is talking about being real in the rap game, meaning everything you say and represent is consistent with what you do in reality. It’s almost an anomaly to see someone who is actually about the life they preach to their audience. So when ScHoolboy talks about his life as a Crip in California the rap game treats it like he is putting up a facade or a front assuming that it isn’t true.
HE IN FACT IS, A REAL MOTHERFUCKER.
Schoolboy is addressing rappers that are only hard when it’s convenient to be. MF’s hard until it’s time to actually be hard and then as he states, they retreat to their real ways, “saying its just rap, them lines ain’t true”
