This why I had to write this man, for my niggas on the corner
Selling water to somebody's daughter, fluctuating prices man
Water is slang for PCP. Ab-Soul wrote this for those who are slinging drugs to make a living. Water is also something that is vital for living; perhaps he is suggesting that they’re selling to people need their substance like everyone needs water.
Could be viewed as a double meaning, possibly suggesting that with the amount of states affected by drought increasing greatly in the U.S. and overseas, one might soon see someone literally on the corner selling water illegally to people, fluctuating prices per gallon similar to gasoline.
This would be due to the drought laws currently in place where the government restricts the usage and collection of water during a drought.
