I put out a song today
It got both love and hate
I only put my heart into it
The Heaviest Cross by YC The Cynic 1

YC’s passion in life is his music, it’s his love and passion. But the music he put his heart into is always met with not only support, but hate as well. Hate can have a demeaning effect on us, and it makes us wonder if what we’re doing is really worth it. This is the case for YC, hate is brought ignorantly to him for his music, even though he puts everything he is into it.

My aim made it irrelevant to converse more
She smothered me like A1 sauce on the first pork
Ride'n by Oddisee (Ft. Uptown XO)

This wordplay helps to meat (HA! Get it?) and finish the metaphor in the previous lines.

Uptown was previously trying to get it in with an extremely fine woman he described as “hotter than a sirloin.” Faced with a woman that hot he was spitting his best game at her.

However, Uptown has such good skills with the ladies that he didn’t even need this, and when they were about to have sex, or “porked,” she was all over him like the A-1 Steak Sauce everyone loves to pour all over their food, especially pork chops.

She's hotter than a sirloin
I'm spitting game, trying to t-bone her
Ride'n by Oddisee (Ft. Uptown XO)

A sex metaphor about meat? YOU BET IT IS!

A sirloin is the best cut of steak you can get, so a women that’s even hotter than that must be attractive!

A T-bone is another quality cut of steak, but more importantly, it creates the metaphor using the word bone, which means that Uptown is looking to get it in with this fine lady!

Hope you answer my "how you been" with a "can't complain"
Any other response & I'll probably hop on a plane
Probably knock on your door, probably give you advice
End up spending the night & then fall in love with you twice
The Goings On by Oddisee (Ft. Ralph Real)

Oddisee still really cares for this ex-girl, and if he comes to find that she isn’t doing well, for whatever reason, his attraction and care for her will end up bringing him to her door. Where the relationship and all his feelings for her will return again.

Cause world wide like girth, the wise are in dirt Caved In by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Cee-Lo Green)

With each passing generation, the world seems to come rebellious and unruly, taboos to your grandparents were accepted by your parents generation, just as taboos to your parents were accepted by your generation. Rebellion is the norm.

Deacon sees this change in the world, and understands the negative impact it has and the dishonor of it. The leaders and wise men who committed their lives to and died for our freedoms have been dishonored by the rebellion in the world.

I’m a black sheep trying to be another’s white hart Perception is Everything by Detroit Leprechaun 26

Great animal metaphor.

A black sheep is a person that stands out, or is different from others around him somehow, while a white hart has long been associated with royalty and honor.

Detroit feels that he is a black sheep, he feels different from everyone else. But this does not deter him from trying to be viewed with a sense of honor that a white hart is seen with.

The white hart is also characterized throughout the mixtape as a hero and a savior. This line further enforces that sentient, as Detroit desires to be this hero despite his differences.

You know
I meant to call you the other day
I saw this girl that resembled you on the boulevard
She had that dress on you bought when we were in Monterey
But didn't do it justice, I guess she thought she could pull it off
The Goings On by Oddisee (Ft. Ralph Real)

Oddisee starts off his letter in a casual yet swooning fashion. Recalling good memories the two share of a trip together, and giving her complaints of how attractive she is. This approach shows his attraction to her, yet his caution of not coming on too strong. Oddisee’s got the lady skills!

OE is an abbreviation of the popular malt-liquor Olde English 800.

OG is not only an abbreviation for Original Gangsta, but it’s also the name of a popular marijuana strand.

So it seems that Supakali, the OG that he is, is chilling back with some OE and OG.

HE’S GETTIN' TURNT SON!
