I'm trying to chillax but I had to do it, dev
I'm at the funeral like "I had to do it, rev!"

from Lil Wayne (Ft. Lil B) – Grove Street Party Lyrics on Rap Genius


Referring back to the kill everyone at the funeral except the preacher line. He tries to justify his murder to the reverend.

Good luck with that Wayne

If you want to hang out at the Grove Street party have to do some dev shit to be considered gangsta enough to hang with them.

One take on the term “dev” is that is a word related to a shortened form of “devil.”

  1. dev
    Dev — a term that has come to mean devilish, naughty, wicked, troublesome, cheeky or subversive.

Instead of chillaxing weezy is frantically confessing to the reverend as mentioned above.

The use of dev and rev also alludes to the duality of good and evil, God[rev] and Satan[dev].
