“Cause even when I slept in the gutter, I stared at the sky.”

Sorta correlating with the whole “work hard to get it” mantra of Nipsey’s music.

The theme of “Sunday”, like you mentioned earlier, is really simple.

It seems to be a confession, from where Earl discusses how weed made his dreams worse and more vivid, to where Frank discusses Chris Brown and their conflict.

The way Frank ties the Chris Brown incident to his past in high school, and the mistakes he made to date someone, or the resentment he received.

Those things pained these artists, and they’re laying that pain out on “Sunday”.

Based on the title and the song’s theme: Frank’s lyrics seem very fitting.

Contrasted with the next bar, Moosh is kinda hyped about his fame. He’s happy that instead of driving themselves, OCD get driven by the promoter. Moosh enjoys the perks of a good rap career.

I think it could be mean he’s surfing on his wave of success from Asleep In The Bread Aisle. For Asher it’s easy to just coast on that success, but he’s a real artist. Asher wants to find similar success from his freshman album. The fame and riches are cool, but not satisfying.

When you’re writing a verse, you have to take your time in the sessions and you’ll rap it the way you want, in one take recording.

Should be “Jumpin out the jam like Space Jam”. A play on words. A jam is a something bad, a bad situation. In the end of Space Jam, Michael Jordan’s team wins with a stellar and impossible shot.

Moosh spit that fire flame. He’s gonna murder all these rappers.

"Playin' a purple card at a moment of uncertainty" (Vic Mensa – Magic) | pending

I believe its playing the perfect card at the moment of uncertainty.

Reassuring himself, despite all of his issues, frustration musically creating, Kids These Days breaking up, whatever:

Vic Mensa’s asking himself, do you believe in magic? Or do you believe in the impossible happening?

The impossible being succeeding as a rapper on his own with no one else.

"I got L's on my record" (SZA – Child's Play) | rejected

Chance The Rapper might have been out in the field. That L could be a criminal offense.
