Me, I chop his head off from a rooftop
And race it downstairs just to see if I can catch his fade
Clever wordplay, Mr. Budden!
1) According to the Dictionary for Urbanites, “Catching a fade” means to catch a beatdown
2) A “Fade” is also a haircut in which the length of the hair either decreases or increases gradually
Joe, will cut the head off a wanna-be-beefing-clown-with-a-fade and then literally “catch it” (his head) in his hands
