Chino XL has a huge effect on the hip hop game today, is one of the best in it and there’s nothing to be discussed about it. This is a play on the literal and figurative meaning of the phrase “fall through the cracks”.

  • To fall through the cracks means to get lost or be forgotten in a system. In this case, Chino doesn’t want to get lost or be forgotten in the hip hop game because he has an enormous effect on it.
  • When a dog pees on a sidewalk, its urine literally falls through the cracks that are on the sidewalk.

"4 shirts," (Rap Genius – RGS2 Rules/Regulations) | pending

A Kendrick one would be awesome… Also, why isn’t this one on the list?

"Prizes" (Rap Genius – RGS2 Rules/Regulations) | accepted

What do I win if I finish second, have the most points and the most transcriptions throughout the season? Do I still win only one prize and if yes, which one do I win? :P

Everything about the song is dope af, not only the beat…

"I get skinheads bowing to Mecca and praying to Islam" (R.A. The Rugged Man – Laugh, Clown, Laugh) | accepted

I think this might even be a referrence to Brother Ali, because RA got him on this album and Brother Ali is a skinhead and a Muslim at the same time. So it may mean that RA got Brother Ali, but he can’t afford more expensive artists like Dre, Swizz or Timbaland. This is just my opinion.
