Ready for hell, ready for war
Yeah, it's nice to be loved but I like being hated more
All the sudden magazines give me good reviews
It used to be my name only equaled bad news
All of a sudden I'm a genius, all of a sudden I'm bright
Like I just now became intelligent overnight

from R.A. The Rugged Man – Midnight Thud Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

And he means it. According to RA himself, rumors have accused him of rape, assault, scat play and animal cruelty. He is all about causing issues and everyone hates him, so if the mainstream start giving him good reviews and praising him, they will come off as kind of hypocrites, because R.A. has always been intelligent — looks can be deceiving. But he’s ready to fight against everything, so he has no problem with everyone hating him.
