Man, let your boy drown, they ain't save me, momma
In CG’s song I’m Alright on Culdesac, he ends by saying:
I ain’t slowing down I don’t care what you say
Fuck this health thing, Momma I’m alright
Here, Childish is saying to his momma to let him drown because he can’t be saved. He’s going to work till he’s done, maybe even dead, and if he makes a few “baby mama”’s having sex with chicks, then that’s okay, so long as he keeps rapping.
The silk pillow for his new weave is a delicate reminder that if he wakes up wrong it could all be fucked up, so he’s gotta get by and nobody can save him.
