Headphone bleed, make this shit sound real

from Odd Future (Ft. Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean, Hodgy Beats, Jasper Dolphin, Left Brain, Mike G, Taco & Tyler The Creator) – Oldie Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Headphone bleed is a recording effect. When the beat bleeds from your phones and is picked up on the mic, it creates a low-fi sound in the music. Hearing effects like this make the music more realistic, as if it was made in someone’s room instead of million dollar studio. .

There is also the metaphorical idea that the music is alive (or real), and hence has the ability to bleed
