Afros and marijuana sticks, seeds in the ganja had it
Popping like the sample that I’m rhyming with
A continuation of the previous couplet: Jay-Z raps about having an afro and smoking marijuana with seeds. Seeds in marijuana are notorious for popping (like popcorn) when you smoke. Seeds in marijuana suck. The sample is popping because it’s supposedly playing off a dusty record (see ‘let the needle drop’ in the next line). .
