Hear that music, pump it louder
I’ve been chilling here for hours
Only left to order sour
Kush and eat and take a shower
God Complex by YC The Cynic 1

YC seems to be describing the process of creating his music. He spends hours on end devoted to his craft, testing the music for the best possible sound, ensuring what he puts out is of the best quality.

During this process YC only breaks from his craft to perform necessities to life, and to buy some weed to smoke. However, this devotion shows in the extreme quality of the music he releases.

I be swaggin my shit hotter than Top Ramen even Whip It by Casey Veggies

Top Ramen is a brand of quick to make Chinese noodles, the noodles are normally made in boiling water, making them very hot. Casey, however, has become even hotter than these noodles.

This line could also show Casey’s progression as a rapper, in 2011, two years before Casey released Life Changes, Casey rapped this on his song Hear Me Screamin':

Workin' hard tryin' to make it to the top rhymin'
Refrigerator empty had to eat the Top Ramen

This shows how much Casey has progressed as an artist in a short amount of time, he went from being forced to eat Top Ramen, to being above it and rapping about it as a commodity.

Shout out to my brothers not related by blood
Some people think I made it, if it's true it's because
I had a team when shit got real, and I doubted my dreams
They'd remind me it ain't as hard as it seems
Be There by Oddisee

Along with his biological brothers, Oddisee also feels a very close bond to his friends as well. He accredits much of what he’s accomplished in his life and career to them. His friends were supportive of him, and kept him motivated no matter how hard the road seemed, just as Oddisee did with his brothers.

When talking about bonds this as strong as the tie gets
What ever you choose in this life, I'm behind it
Be There by Oddisee

Of all the bonds between people in life, rarely can one be found that is as strong as the bond brothers share. Not only do we share half of the same DNA, but spending your whole life along their sides creates nearly inseparable bonds.

This bond is one that Oddisee has with his brothers, and it transcends all things in life. Nothing his siblings ever do could ever weaken this bond, for Oddisee supports whatever decisions his brothers may make in their lives.

Different mothers never made us siblings divided Be There by Oddisee

Although his brothers were born to different women than him, Oddisee feels no less of a connection to them for this. The fact that they came from a different mother created no difference or conflict between them, as Oddisee and his brothers grew up with the bond that only brothers can know.

You’re my brother, from another mother.

And I’m eager to rush to the people to bust on the beats in the club
But the meetings they come by the dozen, with none of em seeming to budge
Demon by Tonedeff

Tonedeff, being a musician who truly loves what he does, desires nothing more than to go out and perform his music for all to hear. However, he is constantly bogged down with the business part of arranging concerts and tours, meetings with promotional agents, and all the stresses that come with running your own label.

The business aspects of music are distracting Tonedeff from the music itself, a consequence that is greatly affecting him.

Call me genius, my genius without collegiate education Know it Alls by YC The Cynic

College is a place that people attend to further their opportunities in the working force, but most importantly, college is a place where one’s education and intelligence increases dramatically.

However, YC is a genius, who unlike nearly seventy percent of his home state’s high school graduates, never attended college or a university. But this has had no affect on his ability to create music well, or made his intricate and intellectual verses less impressive. His brilliance is natural.

YC additionally speaks on not attending college in his song The Heaviest Cross:

Moms had 3 kids to raise
And still went and got her masters
2 jobs so the rent was paid. And I quit school tryna be a rapper

Stand atop the mountain peaks and sing God Complex by YC The Cynic 1

YC makes further allusions to Christianity, mountains are the highest points on earth, and directly touch the Heavens where God resides. Being on top of a mountain can be seen as the closest to God that you can be. Singing from the mountains is within close distance to Him, so that it may be heard.

Additionally, numerous events in the Bible take place on mountains, and have been viewed as some of the holiest sites in the world.

Have the pope when I have spoken
Sing
God Complex by YC The Cynic 1

YC continues describing himself with God-like qualities. The Pope is the leader of the Catholic church, who uses the word of God to direct and lead the worldwide church, conveying God’s teachings and messages.

YC is treated the same way by the Pope, continuing his comparisons found throughout this verse.

It could be said that YC is the most high.
