Off with your head!

from Drake (Ft. Lil Wayne) – The Motto Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Say anything he doesn’t like and he’ll decapitate you, like Robespierre of France, who ordered the guillotine for thousands of his countrymen.

The line alludes to Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland where the Queen of Hearts is talking nonsense — here’s an excerpt,

“No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first — verdict afterwards.”

“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”

“Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple.

“I won’t!” said Alice.

“Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.
