You say you want to rap, to this bitch you must commit
Then you're a slave to your grave, you won't get out, you cannot quit
To become a rapper you have to commit yourself 100% to the game. But once you in the game, there’s no way out you’re in it for life.
This echoes Scarface’s line, “she ain’t the one you want to play with”. The world of a rapper is a dichotomy in that the image is of a relaxed and easy existence but the nature of the game causes them to be tortured, unable to escape. You can not be a successful rapper without both these realities.
