They say I’m new
It’s nothing but some deja-vu
Mac is just saying he might be up and coming to the rap game, but essentially he’s just like all the old school legends. He backs this up because most of his rap style (especially his older stuff) is influenced by old school rappers including the features on this song, as well as A Tribe Called Quest. Thus, his rapping is more similar to the legends, as opposed to most mainstream rappers today.
