But anyway, this for my niggas
Uncles, 23 hours sending me pictures
I want you to know that I'm so determined to blow
That you hear the music I wrote, hope it get you off Death Row
This song is for his friend and family that are in prison. He want them to know he is determined to be successful. He wants his music to provide inspiration for them to get out of jail.
23 hours is a reference to high level security for inmates in prison. The most dangerous inmates are locked in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, with only one hour for recreation.
Furthermore, ‘hope it get you off Death Row’ is a double entendre, referring to Death Row records. He hopes that his music is accepted by people who only seem to listen to albums released by Death Row. He wants his music to represent them as well as albums like “The Chronic”, “Doggystyle”, and “All Eyez On Me”.
