The year's clear your image and snooped up
it’s supposed to be “the year it’s clear your, image is looped-up”
the line continues common’s broken flow theme throughout the song with “hot garbage of/the year” (this is a joke in itself— tons of new rappers get hyped but flash and fizzle in a minute. they’re not really hot MCs, common calls em the ‘hot garbage of the year’).
on top of it their image is “looped-up,” like repetitive, derivative hip-hop is, so it’s a musical reference.
and last but not least, these MCs are clearly confused about their place in the game (they’re “looped-up” as in loopy).
