Got me breathing with dragons
I spit hot fire!
Breathing with dragons means that he’s equal to a fierce monster and spits fire like the mythical beast. You’ve made him angry and in response, he’s burning up rappers.
I’ve always interpreted the first two lines as Kendrick stating that now he is making it to the big leagues and battling alongside the best MC’s (breathing with dragons).
The next line ‘crack the egg in your basket’ means he will murder not only the rappers (dragons) but their offspring as well, and calling a dragons nest/roost a basket is very offensive and derogatory to such a mighty beast :)
And also a question: the description says this is a constant on barbershop playlists, but considering he alludes to hair dressers being homosexuals, is that really true?
