You and me in the butane, supe a lame and he puffs up
Little dragons of fad rap
Butane is considered a “parrafin gas,” from the Latin term parum affinis, meaning “little affinity.” El-P has little love for the “Little dragons of fad rap,” hyped-up rappers that get attention for style over substance.
Butane, a highly flammable chemical, is a recurrent symbol in El-P’s music; it is the title of the El-P-produced Killer Mike track, “Butane.”
More money, more power, more butane
Burn the motherfucker down, down
