Yep, tell me stories on the field, with that sun-stained brim
Blood under my chin, he taught me how to spit
Sunflower seeds back with me and my crew
Here, Macklemore moves on to the classic American story of a dad who teaches his son the ways of baseball.
Besides teaching him how to play the game, Macklemore’s dad revealed to him (and his friends) an entire baseball culture that prides itself on even the little things, such as as spitting sunflower seeds.
It could be wordplay on spitting seeds and spitting rhymes, that is, his dad gave him the emotional strength he needed to become a rapper.
