Hollring 'no I don't immediately ameliorate 'em
I meet 'em, greet 'em, read 'em, and rate 'em, see if I hate 'em
This verse is preceded by an interlude in which Aes is talking with another person, probably El-P, about some dudes that El-P knows that Aes doesn’t. Aesop says here that he doesn’t immediately hate or like these guys, but he’s willing to meet them, get to know them (read ‘em), and then determine if they’re cool guys (rate 'em, see if I hate 'em).
