El-P the third gunner on the grassy knoll

from Company Flow – 8 Steps to Perfection Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It is believed by many that there were multiple gunners in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. A common theory is that there was another gunner besides convicted Lee Harvey Oswald that shot from the grassy knoll of the Dealey Plaza. However El-P is saying he’s an additional gunner people don’t even know about. This is all a metaphor for saying people don’t know about Company Flow and that he’s coming from nowhere and taking down the established regime of hip hop (JFK within the metaphor).
