It’s a bonfire, turn the lights out
I’m burnin’ everything you muthafuckas talk about
He not only does everything that you talk about, he makes it hot (hence the burning) and kills it.
A bonfire is a traditionally a celebration where people bring all the crap they don’t want and build a huge fire from it. He’s taking every bad thing the haters have told him over the years and is setting fire to that shit.
