It's Buddha to be sparked, it's consistent
The beast smells the el because it travels long distance
Cruising in his Chrysler, pursuing niggas in my cipher
“The beast” is referring to the 5-0, the pigs, the fuzz, the police. They smell the potent “Buddha” (otherwise known as cannabis) while cruising in their Chrysler police cars and then pursue.
