Ice cold but you know I burn cash like I had herpes
Not true, but I'm that dirty
What’s Cooler Than Being Cool? Ice Cold!
Building off the previous and playing on opposites of intense cold and hot.
To be “ice cold” (in the sense of frozen), means he has extreme self control/determination/confidence.
Burning (is the result of strong heat), when one has Herpes, their sexual organs having an unpleasant burning/itching sensation on their private parts. He runs through money like if he set it fire.
He extends the metaphor to explain his skills as a lyricist. “Dirty” pertains to the Herpes being a disgusting and nasty virus. Yet, it is also a slang word for how good someone is at something.
He doesn’t have an STD, but he sure is awesome at rapping.
