Cause kissin' people ass is so unlike you I Am a God by Kanye West

Kanye was never a kiss-ass, and didn’t brown nose to get to where he’s at. The people who surround Yeezus to make money off of him however, have no problem kissing his ass, which ties into the first line: They might make money like Kanye West, but they ain’t no Kanye West.

It’s important to point out here that while kissing ass is not worthy of a man like Ye, eating ass is perfectly acceptable. I mean, you just shouldn’t make out with your dessert.

I witness a bishop that'll wield his mystic sword
And slaughter every player who inhabits my chessboard
Checkmate by Apathy

These lines are probably referring either to a group mate of Ap who watches over him (He is part of many collectives) or rather a mentor who first showed Apathy exactly how one ‘slaughters’ MCs.

Note the adjective mystic — makes the man seem wise, and also could be referring to his rapping ability being almost supernatural in talent.

Smash knights with mics in militant mental fights, it seems to be Checkmate by Apathy

This is the first line in the song that shows that the whole chess subject is an extended metaphor for the way he conquers other MCs.

He shows this when he states that he smashes knights (MCs) with mics in mental fights. (Rap battles require a lot of quick thinking and logic)

What a shame from the pain cause we used to being slaves
Made a change from the whips, shackles and the chains
But nowadays man seem a little strange
Trade his soul for the whips and the chains, what a change!
Toast to the Gods by A$AP Rocky

Rocky openly questions why the cycle is repeating itself: blacks were once enslaved and had whips and chains and now, a century later rappers are once again enslaving themselves by selling their souls to labels just to get whips and chains again. Albeit now the whips are cars, and the chains are gold necklaces, they are still enslaved by them. A quite deep line from “Dat PrettyMotherFucker”

Example of such a rapper:

I'mma be that motherfucker 'till my breath stop
I guess for now call me step pop
Toast to the Gods by A$AP Rocky

In a interview ASAP Rocky said this is one of his favorite lines he’s done

Rocky has been known to call himself ‘That Pretty Motherfucker’ (referencing himself as such on multiple songs such as Peso where he calls himself such in the first line)

But here he means that he will literally be that mother fucker, having intercourse with all of your mothers, so until he dies, you might aswell call him your step dad because he’s doing what step-fathers do: sticking it to your mother.

(wouldnt mind him being my step-dad)
