And everybody tripping off 2012
And the extraterrestrial presence as well (Odd Future's aight)
But our future is not,
He also mentions Odd Future because they are a rebel group. His main focus on this verse is for standing on your feet and rebeling and doing what you believe in rather than being conformed to society. So he references Odd Future as a example of a group that’s fulfilling his vision in this verse which is going against societal norms.
These two lines in a pair mirror the duplicity of his message: whether you are going to stand against what’s going on or accept it and not stand for anything.
It adds to when he says “we gonna all get got” once Martial Law drops. This line is also a reference to what many believe to be a significant amount of extraterrestrial events occurring on earth.
