People talked to Joey, but if Joey wasn’t listening, they were only talking to themselves.

or also stating the people that were speaking to him were a direct reflection of who he was, had the same past, lifestyle, and trying to do better things with life.

Add a suggestion

Even though the jail was literally cold, being stuck in a prison made Joey more sensitive (warmed his hearth).

He’s blaming his parents for his addictive personality. However, this is done intentionally.

In the beginning of the song, Joey says “Today I take all of the credit..”

He’s basically saying that he’s taking responsibility for his actions. Then he contradicts himself by blaming it on his parents genes.

The contradiction is done intentionally to depict his confusion. People who have ever suffered from depression will understand.

Pac getting shot at in Quad’s elevator, taught Joe that he shouldn’t doubt cowards because a coward might randomly shoot him one day. He’s also implying that the people who shot 2pac were cowards.

Joe is explaining that if he was going to risk someone that he’s been with for years and plans on dying with, for a one night stand, he would make make a decent effort in hiding it.

In other words, he wouldn’t make clumsy mistakes like forgetting to delete his phone call history or myspace messages. He would make an effort to hide these things.

Joe justifies his cheating by explaining that cheating will only do two things:

1) Show him that they’re not meant to be. (Because he feels the need to cheat).

Or

2) Help him appreciate his original girlfriend more. (Because when he cheated, he’ll realize that other girls can’t compare to the girl he is currently with, resulting in Joe appreciating his original girl more).

If you count Joey out (consider him a whack rapper) with one hand

Then you’re not counting your other hand too. You’re judging him without counting both hands. You’re judging him based on ONE POINT OF VIEW.

He didn’t inherit success, he went and got it himself. He “adopted” the crown, opposed to “inheriting” the crown. Fuck that shit. Joey worked hard for the crown!

"Pop won't have a man-to-man / Was gone half my life so / ..." (Joe Budden – All In My Head) | rejected

Joe tries to justify his fathers actions by saying that his dad probably didn’t feel it was his place to be a father. His dad didn’t feel obligated to be a father figure.

"If I’m out my mind, how can I be in-sanity" (Joe Budden – All In My Head) | rejected

When Joe is out of his mind, how can he be IN sanity? You can’t expect him to behave in a rational manner if you’re claiming that his brain is off.

"Cut from a different cloth and no one knows my thread count" (Joe Budden – Cut From a Different Cloth) | pending

When someone says they’re “cut from a different cloth” it means that they differ from the norm. Ab-Soul and Joey are different and no one knows the thread count of the cloth they’re cut from. Meaning no one understands them because they are different.

"Could fuck who I want now, should be my next tattoo / Pas..." (Joe Budden – What Y'all Want) | pending

When Joey says, “Could fuck who I want now”

He’s talking about his current girlfriend being bi-sexual. Because Kaylin (his current girlfriend) is bi-sexual, Joey can fuck other bitches with her.

Before Kaylin, Joey couldn’t fuck other bitches because Tahiry or Esther (EX GFS) would get pissed.

Joey’s mom tells him that he’s irresponsible — “normal people” go through many hardships and challenges as a result of being irresponsible. But luckily, Joey is able to mask his bad habit behind his talent. His talent allows him to be irresponsible without facing the difficulties that come with it.
