Burning purple would normally refer to smoking purple coloured marijuana. May be also be a nod towards Sadistik’s upcoming project “Ultraviolet”.

stressed on a murder spree

is most likely connected to the following lines

It’s self-inflicted, don’t get it twisted

as this is not the first time Sadistik has talked about “killing” himself, or rather, parts of himself. This is most likely a metaphor for going through big changes as a person, “killing” your old self.

And while I missed the pieces of myself that has been killed by my own hands
I celebrate the ones that I have created since
I have reinvented myself more times than I care to count and each one is a little less beautiful than the last which leads me to here, the now

Score: 91.75
The 20 year old Norwegian Ståle Sandbech won silver, after qualifying first in his heat. After landing an extremely clean last run, including a frontside 1440 and backside triple cork 1440 back-to-back, he ended up at a well deserved second place.

Watch his run below:

He also rocked a pretty interesting hair style during the medal ceremony:

One of the creepiest ways the last verse of this song could’ve ended. A “subliminal” threat from the narrator, saying that if this girl isn’t willing to become his girlfriend, then he’ll make sure nobody else will…

When Brother Ali converted to Islam, he decided to take on the name “Ali” (he was born Jason Newman). It was one of the names suggested to him and he chose the name because of Muhammad Ali. This song is dedicated to him:

There were a few names that were being suggested, and [Ali] was one of them. And I chose that name because of him – because of who he is. I think that anybody can transcend what they do, and become bigger than just their location, when they’re willing to sacrifice and really make it about something bigger than just themselves. A lot of people are great just for greatness’ sake, or just for their own self-aggrandizement, but when you can connect it and make it bigger, and make it beneficial to other people, or to a bigger idea or principle, then that’s when you become truly great – that’s when you become a hero. That’s when you make that transition from being successful to being great. And there are people that are great without being successful. They’re not necessarily the same thing.

This can be a reference to either:

  • The Black Panther party, a black revolutionary socialist movement that was active throughout the US, primarily during the 60s. They were highly involved in the “Black Power” movement, and coined the term “Power to the People”. They were also considered “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country” by J. Edgar Hoover.

  • Black Panther, the first black superhero to appear in mainstream American comics.
    In the comics, “The Black Panther” is a title given to the chief of the Panther Tribe from the nation of Wakanda. Black Panther earned his title by defeating champions from different tribes.

Ali thus compares himself to a revolutionary group and/or a revolutionary hero and leader, who has defeated his opponents (other rappers) and gained a big name and status.

Ali uses either/both of these references to explain how he relates to African American culture, even more so than his genetic relatives.

On top of this he is a dope rapper who spits hot rhymes.

Ali’s wife never really wanted him, just somebody to support her financially and emotionally. He then goes on to explaining that he was only in it because he wanted someone to love him, so their relationship was mostly built on egoism.

Ali has expressed this earlier on the track “Walking Away”:

I admit that I was weak in the beginnin'
I wanted someone to need me instead of a friendship
I didn’t think I deserved a true partner
So I transferred the arrangement I had with my mama

"Yall get mad whenever someone else mentions me / Ironic, ..." (Joe Budden – Pain Won't Stop) | pending

He is comparing his fans to his ex. His fans tends to be “hipsters” and wants to feel unique and therefore gets irritated if someone else knows him.

"And then I got a whole market of fans / With no clue what..." (Joe Budden – Pain Won't Stop) | pending

And if you did it’d be about more than a marketing plan

Joe got lots of hate for Pump It Up and people claimed that he’d sold out. He is saying that if you knew him and still were to target him it’d be for his personality, not the fact that he is “selling out”.

"And I refuse to let past bruises cover the light / It ain..." (Eyedea & Abilities – Smile) | accepted

I believe the line “It ain’t all good, but it’s all good enough so I know I’m alright” originated from Eyedea and Ablities (“Sixth Sense” back then) unreleased track titled “It ain’t all good” or “Be alright”.
