Grade A, A1,
2 Chainz continues his bragging, claiming to be the best of the best. Both “Grade A” and “A1” are terms generally used to describe things that are the best. Grade A steak is one of the best cuts of meat, with some A.1. Steak Sauce to go on it. (which could relate to the condiment references in the beginning of the verse).
What do steak sauce, mayonnaise and ketchup have in common? They’re good with everything! Just like 2 Chainz' backpack-rapping approach.
Maybe “grade A” refers to car’s classification, he’s got a grade A car, so he’s an A1 nigga, being A1 everything.
