Don't forget the dash in my name, when you print it
It'll make me feel bleak like Jay's apprentice
He’d like for everyone spell his name “Ab-Soul” and not “Ab Soul” when they write/type it. If you don’t he’ll feel gloomy about it (bleak), like Jay-Z’s apprentice’s (Memphis Bleek) last name.
Finally, this is also a reference to Damon Dash, with him formerly being the primary producer for Roc-A-Fella Records, Ab-Soul could be saying don’t forget to mention who produces his music when you mention him. The reason why at the beginning of the song he says:
- ‘Ab-Soul & Aahyasis’ the producer of the song
- “Dont forget the dash (Damon Dash) in my name when you print it, it’ll make me feel bleak (Memphis Bleek) like Jay’s (Jay-Z (note the dash in both of their names)).
