Earl’s not high or drunk on some fine wine. A cold 40 was his chosen method of intoxication. Notice the wordplay with fine/dutty (dirty).
The “dutty wine” is a famous Jamaican head dance:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg0qluaxpOo
He’s saying noon high, as in he’s drunk off a forty in the middle of the day, harassing police.
Odd Future got your bitches bobbing their heads to OF music that’s why their necks are swollen.
The first line contains a reference to object-oriented C programming, which uses classes and methods.
Earl is saying that even though he’s a young nigga, he dresses, coughs frequently, and is cheap and acts (pretty terribly, hence C-class method actor) just like an old man.
Earl speaking on being an old-ass young person:
Wordplay with nothing/nutting, coming/cumming.
Earl Sweatshirt is stunting, spending money, living large etc. without the help of his mother.
Likely a reference to Waka Flocka’s Flame’s strip club anthem, “No Hands”:
Look ma, no hands
Ties into the last one as a Canon is a brand of camera.
Earl has his cannon cocked and is ready to shoot.
The “shot” can also be interpreted as liquor. The “bop, bop” onomatopoeia represents the canon shots.
May be a reference to Canon Liquor, a deli in Glendale, CA.
Refers to Earl’s “bars” or lines in his verse.
Bars that are locked are those of a jail or prison. Earl’s punchlines (“bars”) hit the listener hard, as if they were fighting the cell’s inhabitant.
Earl depicts the contrast between his manner of speaking and his demeanor. He may be soft-spoken, but he’s quick to hit an annoying-ass fuck boy, even if he is a fan.
