So I went hard like Medusa starin at me
Medusa, a monster from Greek mythology, would cause onlookers to literally turn into stone when they gazed at her. In some versions of her story, she was hella fine. “Hard” is a three-fold reference. One is in reference to his penis, the 2nd is referring to putting a lot of effort into gaming this female (i.e. to go hard.) The third meaning is he was froze by the woman’s beauty.
