Rhyme like Ricky Hatton
Another boxer reference, this time to British-born Ricky Hatton
It’s worth noting that Mayweather beat Ricky Hatton in the ring prior to this song being released, so GZA is saying that 50 hangs around people who are stronger than him. GZA also explained that the meaning of the song name “Paper Plates” was that paper plates are disposable. So 50 hangs out Floyd Mayweather Jr., a prominent and indispensable boxer, to mask his own weakness and capacity to be disposed of.
