The first of these three lines is a response to friend and collaborator Dom Kennedy and his line in “Platinum Chanel:”

Don’t wear LeBrons to the club the shits ugly

Dom took a shot at LeBron James, a pro basketball player from their home state of Ohio. Accordingly, they respond by taking a shot at Kobe Bryant, who plays in Dom’s hometown of Los Angeles. Shoe preferences aside, Dom and Fly U are homies and share a common interest of getting money.
