And if you can't respect that, your whole perspective is wack
This is a direct quote from “December 4th” by Jay-Z from The Black Album. This acts as a nice transition from the intro to the first verse.
If you cant repsect the fact he isn’t in a gang and doesnt get in trouble, then your whole view (perspective) on rap isnt really a good perspective and he thinks that representing his siblings is more important. (Also a quote from Jay-Z, which is carried on into the first verse)
