So I just sweep the street and tell the sheep to go to sleep
I just freak the beat and move your sneakers when I speak
Because she doesn’t believe that mainstream fame won’t reach her, she’s content on staying underground.
There is word play here on “sheep”:
– Counting “sheep” to go to “sleep”, as one does when they have insomnia.
– Mainstream hip hop audiences who are like “sheep” in that they follow the shepherding of the music industry in their herd-instinct. Which makes them essentially ‘asleep’, unconscious listeners.
Nitty goes crazy on the beat and she expects you to dance or at least move when she speaks.
