On records for ten years, I can hardly believe it
Never thought I'd be perceived, as just some rapping school teacher

Although he has been in the game for so long, he’s still not perceived as a rap legend, but rather as a school teacher who raps. Reference to the line R.A. spat on his verse.

On a record with J-Live, I could hardly believe this
I never thought I’d be rapping on no record with school teachers
