But I could switch up, something like blade dog
Snipes a nigga while I'm robin him. Slade dog

Meaning

Here, I layer the lyrics with pop culture references.

At surface, I’m likening my flow to a switch-blade. The very next line ties in the popular movie, Blade, by referencing the last name of the star actor, Wesley Snipes.

Then, I go on to use a play on words, while referencing the rivalry between teen super-hero, Robin, and his arch-nemesis, Slade.
