Ya'll do it for the light intertwined with lime
I do it cause on the mic ain't none of ya'll better
Top Dawg, y'all mice, taking all of ya'll cheddar
Am I right?
Fucking right, yeah
Wordplay with “limelight”. As he’s constantly stated, other rappers are only doing it for the fame and fortune but his mission is much greater.
