Shad K don't have chains, big as the Appalachians

from Shad – Yaa I Get It Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning
  1. Shad doesn’t consider himself a gangster, so he doesn’t wear chains around his neck that are large like the Appalachian mountain chain.

  2. He could also be admitting he doesn’t have an extensive fan base and marketing like more popular rappers, and isn’t in “chain” stores.

  3. Shad may hate the phrase ‘Canadian rap sensation’ because he feels it chains him to a particular region. His style of music, he thinks, is international

  4. The Appalachians are a mountain range which separate Canada and the USA. Shad isn’t gonna be held down with the geographical chains as the “Canadian rap sensation” and not be able to take on fame in the US (or all over the world).
