Breitling is an expensive watch maker. Many of their models feature shiny, diamond cut bezels.

His music hits as hard as a punch from Bernard Hopkins. (This is also a reference back to his previous line.)

The 2-3 zone is sometimes used in basketball when a defense doesn’t match up well with their opponent or struggles trying to guard them man-to-man. Los is basically saying that your team can’t handle him.

Can also be taken as “She don’t want a cut” which follows the previous line questioning his girl’s motives. She doesn’t want his money, she just wants to get to know him.

"Or watch that .40 throw bullets, Brett Favre" (Los – B.o.B. Freestyle) | pending

I think it’s also a reference to Favre’s age. He was 40 years old and still playing in the NFL when Zero Gravity came out.

I’ve always heard it as “Your seats IN close” and thought he was saying that they try as hard as they can to reach their goals, sitting in the front row in class, but they still can’t match him.

Toward the end of the Corey Gunz verse I’m hearing it as:

Your seats “in” close like they tryna do the most
To reach they goals but you just ain’t us

"Eating on an Adderall, wash it down with alcohol" (Danny Brown – Adderall Admiral) | pending

“RapGenius.com was built on Adderall”

hahaha

"About my chips chump, I'm a chipmunk like Alvin" (CyHi The Prynce – A Thousand Poundz) | pending

He’s also saying that he’s always thinking ahead and and he stays prepared, like a chipmunk hoarding nuts.

"Snap back flow, adjust to me being over your head" (Los – Moment for Life) | rejected

And obviously a hat stays over your head too lol…

I think “put my life behind bars” is also another way of saying he put music (bars) before everything else in his life, and that’s how he mastered his lyrical skills.

But I wouldn’t be surprised if this is another triple entendre as most of the lines are in this song because I do think the whole “18th bar” thing is a little too much to be a coincidence. Can’t forget these are the lost symbols we’re talking about, and they speak in cryptic code…

A “6” could represent many different things for Jay-Z, but I think he’s actually referring to Maybach 62s here because he’s alluded to the fact that he’s owned three of them (which has also been suggested in some of his other lyrics).
