Until then, I play the piano
Luciano on the bass, Mariano on the block with the sage
Until I go broke I calmly play the piano leading a band of criminals selling crack and marijuana. My crime game is so good that Mafia members work for me.
Here, Ghostface ties his crime rap into the hook by using the piano as a metaphor for orchestrating crime.
“On the bass” has a double meaning. Bass is an instrument and base meaning freebase or crack cocaine. Sage is weed.
