I'm in it for power, if cowards try to stop me
They better off usin a fishin pole to reel in the Lock Ness

from Slaughterhouse – Microphone Lyrics on Rap Genius


Crooked I has in previous lines made references to becoming fly, recognized and educating others how hip-hop should truly be practiced. When he receives the power to influence others regardless of what poor rappers have to interject, they’re rendered useless, much like the meaning for reeling in the Loch Ness and being the dominant blob over rappers who think they are unmatched. Metaphorically could represent his dominance over the mic-cord (Fishing pole/Wires), that once he’s empowered from people’s hype, you can’t restrain his lyrical impact that he has control with over the epitomized dumbed down rappers (Those most likely to oppose him)
