Roving packs of elusive young become
Choke-lore writers over boosted drums
The “roving packs of elusive young” is referring to the type of people who become rappers.“Choke lore” is a play on the term “folk lore” to imply they’re shitty writers or you could interpret that as glorifying violence through story telling.
With “boosted drums” he’s referring to the sampling of drum breaks.
