Referring to the line above.
Those who call a person “selfish” for the reasons above, are wrong. The Grouch is always looking to improve, care, and value himself.

People are going to judge regardless of what a person decides to do. People can often judge, and label a person as “selfish”; mainly because that person wants to see him or herself improve.

Tunji is driving fast and playing loud music (Biggie to be exact).
This can also be an inference to his emotions.

“driving fast” could imply his blood flowing rapidly throughout his body every time he was with this girl.

“bumping” can imply his heart beat speeding and bumping due to the adrenaline pump he has when he is with this girl.

"If it wasn't for mistakes, I probably wouldn't be here today" (Sage Francis – I Was Zero) | pending

This line could be interpret in various ways:

  1. An unplanned pregnancy: He was a “mistake”
  2. All the mistakes he made while growing up, somehow got him to where he is, and made him the person he is today.

I feel like slug is inferring how he wanted to be known. By stating that, “I’m only trying to scribble in the book, man”, Slug is pretty much looking to make his scribbles(story), be know by others. Now that his music is known, and he has a lot of fans/haters. Due to his success, some of his own fans might be bitter at him and ant for blowing up!

She got a boyfriend, who is a complete narcissist. He only cares for what he wants.

"Sometimes it can be so nice, right? / Sometimes she feel ..." (Atmosphere – Wild Wild Horses) | pending

Maybe it’s the story of the same girl in the first verse. She is in love with this guy, sometimes things are perfect between them, and when things go wrong, sometimes he’s there to guide her. Most of the times, all the emotions she’s feeling are one-sided.

"Everything is all I have to give you / And I'm afraid it ..." (Atmosphere – Wild Wild Horses) | accepted

He was going to give her all she wanted, but he was not the person she wanted.
