This line can be taken 2 ways. It can be referring to Asher no longer being affiliated with a Major label, when asked about his relationship with Def Jam he stated

There is no relationship with Def Jam

He also stated he respects the label and what they’ve done/artists they’ve brought to the hip-hop world but he simply doesn’t affiliated with them anymore.

and

The line itself can allude to the idea to forgive and forget, don’t hold grudges or remind yourself of the past, keep moving forward and do what you want to do or what makes you happy.

Tying into the previous lines, after going the independent route Asher saw how tough the music business really was and seems to have even doubted himself and his ability to make it work. At the end of the day though he kept grinding and now he’s seeing the hard work paid off.

Q was my first competition on RG you could say, trying to climb XV leaderboards and clean up songs really helped me great deal as far as annotating and editing is concerned.

Continuing off the previous line with his use of the word minor, XV states here that even though he’s changed the game so to speak and he’s been mentioned and made songs with more major or well known rappers, he’s still the same old Vizzy.

Major/Minor are used to describe large or small amounts of something.

Peep this wordplay, XV is still considered an underground rapper to many because he’s not that well known, however check how he uses minor/miner as a homophone, a miner is someone who works a good bit of time underground literally to get coal and other minerals from the earth.

Hold up, things are gonna get rocky

Lets break down these references. XV feels like Rocky (Rocky Balboa) a fictional boxing figure that was always overcoming the odds to win in the end.

But next he says his wrist all rocky, cause he came up rocky, which is referring to the rocks (diamonds or jewels) in his necklace.

Not to sound like a total fan-boy but it’s dope as fuck to actually see a verified artist dropping knowledge on songs other than their own just like a normal user.

Just a thought, note both are bosses and both have ties to cocaine, a bump is often used to refer to cocaine.

"Rec League, I ain't paying to ball" (Childish Gambino – I. Crawl) | accepted

Sounds to me like he actually says “I ain’t payin to ball” which makes sense because rec-leagues are normally free, saying he’s “not payin” to ball out just means his cash flow is up and he can spend what he wants with no consequences.
