Trap raps, let 'em free, they always come back to me
The Internet told me that that’s called love
I’m on the Internet cause I’m an Internet thug
A “trap” is the area where drugs deals are carried out, and rappers such as T.I. have made reference to “trap music” (aka “trap raps”). The second part of the line is a play on the literal meaning of the word “trap,” from which he has “let em free.” But they always come back, harking up the cliché line from Gibran’s The Prophet:
If you love something, set it free
If it comes back, it was meant to be.
It’s possible Heems found this line on the internet, or he just used answers.com for advice on his relationship with raps. Either way, he’s an internet thug.
Heems is also explaining what it means to “get love” from the internet. Heems has a popular Tumblr page which gets lots of hits which means lots of love.
