We saw more baselines than Juno
Talking ‘bout the Baseline fetal heart rate identified by electric fetal monitors/cardiotocographs in pregnancy. Juno is the pregnant lead character in the movie of the same name which follows her teenage life as she carries her baby.
Base is slang for cocaine, and with RZA being born in Brooklyn, he probably saw his fair share of hustling.
Baseline also sounds the same as “bassline”, reffering to the low-pitched instrumental part of a song played by a rhythm instrument.
