Legendary lay-up. Jordan with the right-left switch
Hang time, Hand glide, Stir fried, Chanky-eyed, Shanghai

from Curren$y – Airborne Aquarium Lyrics on Rap Genius


This part of the song is a string of connections. the words words pr phrase connects to the previous and next.

“Legendary Lay-up” is to say that what he does is his leisure has garnered quite a reputation. But it also refers to Michael Jordan’s legendary lay up against the Lakers in the 1991 finals where he switched hands in mid-air.

“Hang time, hang glide” calls back to the MJ layup but also refers to the feeling of being “high” on marijuana.

“Stir-fried, Chinky eyed, Shanghai” is a vague allusion to feeling the effects of smoking weed. One internal effect is becoming hungry and an external effect is squinted eyes as a result of increased sensitivity to light.
