You know I'mma ball 'til they turn off the field lights

from Lil Wayne (Ft. Cory Gunz) – 6 Foot 7 Foot Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s the first one to arrive and the last one to leave. This is what he does: BALLIN!

This alludes to any athlete who trains longer/harder than the rest of the field. For instance, did you know that basketball great Larry Bird practiced countless hours a day, and frequently would shoot in the Boston Garden before or after games alone in the dark.

And since “field lights” are placed on baseball diamonds, this line refers back to the preceding “outfielder” punchline.


Little Known Fact: Larry Bird’s mustache had sonar capabilities like a bat
