Reference to the 8th amendment. The U.S. is restricted to such cruelness, but not us Pakistanis.

Exactly what happens when you do not take time to resolve minor concerns and upsetting points.. you eventually let it build up until you explode!

Interestingly, an exacerbation is also used to describe asthma attacks that asthmatic patients experience often when they go through flare ups. Adil is gasping for air, which symbolizes fighting for his life.

Juxtaposing thoughts since in the next line, he is looking to escape life with death.

  • Walls = restrains. He is no longer going to stay in a room/cage. He is coming out.

  • Ceiling = limits. Sky is the limit for him now. No more ceiling to keep him down.

  • Carpet = comfort zone. He is now facing the bare floor, the roughness, the harsh truth. He needs a more stable career!

These metaphors resemble how he is breaking free of categories. He seems to be in a room similar to a basement. This is reflective of underground music; theme notable throughout the song.

Forget discipline. He is breaking all rules, such as sticking to a specific genre or content for his lyrics, just to get his career going. No more baby steps for him.

  1. He is in need of money. He wants to become famous. He wants his career to take off. He will do whatever it takes.

  2. He is quite hungry. He needs money to feed himself. He will take whatever he needs to satisfy his hunger.

He is waiting for his hard work to pay off; his music career to take off.

He isn’t mainstream. He isn’t on your radio. He is pretty lowkey.

Wordplay on the famous band Nickleback.

Having a nickle to your name = he is poor.
Cripple swag = no money to flash and live the luxury life with style.

"Talking 'bout you be repping that Third, I wanna see all ..." (Beyoncé – Drunk In Love) | accepted

And so people know… Third Ward isn’t your typical white fenced neighborhood. Sometimes people go there by accident and never make it out alive.

"She gon' get some dick tonight / Meet me at the W, and no..." (ScHoolboy Q – Collard Greens) | accepted

More wordplay!

The “W” could also represent a girl’s butt. The curvature of the buttocks draw out butt cheeks. This is essential because of the line that follows immediately, referring to anal sex. “No it’s not the Westside,” makes sense in this context as well.

"I'm delirious" (Eminem – Love Game) | accepted

your*

This isn’t the first time Eminem has somewhat “masked” Beyoncé’s name in a song. In his song “No Apologies” you can barely make out her name in “Cause I got jelly, like Beyonce’s potbelly”

"Don't nobody knows how she feels" (Outlandish – Aicha) | accepted

This is also a reflecting statement based on the fact that this “Aicha” they speak of is wearing a head-scarf. Not only that, she is actually in hijab, an Islamic style wardrobe for females. This is emphasized in the video since it is the main theme of the song. No one knows how she feels because they cannot relate and/or because she is hiding underneath her baggy Islamic outfit. Just like her body is hidden, so her are emotions and thoughts.

"And if the crotch fits, wear it/" (Tonedeff – Disappointed) | accepted

This is derived from a common saying “If the shoe fits, wear it” … often sometimes shortened with “If the shoe fits.” The common saying means if a statement made can pertain to you or describe you to its entirety, then admit it and accept it. Often this saying is used when a statement is rudely made.

Also refer to his earlier lines in this song when Em obviously insults Waka Flocka Flames “You fags think it’s all a game ‘til I walk a flock of flames” yet Waka doesn’t even realize it.

““How? He said, he asked people if you think it’s a game,” said Waka. “‘I’mma go hard as Waka Flocka Flame and flame you.’ He’s basically giving me a compliment. I appreciate it. You know what I’m saying? For a legend to look at you like you going hard. ‘Keep going,’ that’s basically what he said. ‘You going hard. I respect everything you doing. Keep going.’ I ain’t look at it as no beef. I know Eminem wouldn’t diss me…I played it and I’m like he clearly gave me a shout out. It’s just people don’t wanna see your rise.””

"Bitch I've never been this ready, a veteran already" (Anilyst – No Mercy) | accepted

He is stating that he is ready/prepared for whatever is coming next. He is just beginning to get exposed to the public through his music/songs/skills but in the same sense, he is already seen as a vet at the rap game. Legendary, all because of the fast pace fan base/admirers.
