I'm cut from a different sleeve, Cole World 'til our wrists are freeze

from J. Cole (Ft. Jay Z) – Mr Nice Watch Lyrics on Rap Genius


Cole purposely mis-speaks in order to keep up the rhyme scheme — he’s cut from a “different sleeve” instead of a different cloth, and his wrists are “freeze” instead of “frozen”. This line is appropriate, coming as it does on a song with a guy who has been talking about frozen wrists since at least 1997.

Also a homophone since it sounds like “til I’m Mr. Freeze”, meaning ‘til he’s got so much ice he might as well be like this guy (surrounded by ice).
