She came to UK screaming "CATS!" all day
Bled blue since she used to watch Tayshaun play
South California by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Tunji)

Tayshaun Prince is a NBA player who has played for the Detroit Pistons as well as the Memphis Grizzlies. Tayshaun also played college basketball for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, where basketball is insanely popular.

The Cunninlynguists are also based from Lexington, so this girl getting together with Natti couldn’t be a better fit!

Ha, Yup
Im aware it’s four in the morning
But I just wanna tell you im drunk and im kinda horny
Drunk Dial by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Grieves & Murs)

While Natti ended up in prison for his actions while being out. Grieves is letting the booze get to him in other ways.

Many men call their exes while drunk, especially to try to get with them. Grieves is no exception to this tendency, as he calls an old flame to spill out his heart.

It's four o-clock on a Sunday morning
Who the hell is calling my phone?
Waking me up I'm stretching and yawning
If you had any sense you'd leave me alone
Drunk Dial by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Grieves & Murs)

The verses Natti, Grieves, and Murs deliver in this song are based around phone calls during and after a wild night partying. Natti’s call is from prison, while Grieves and Murs paint the infamous drunk dial to the listeners.

The hook depicts those who get these calls, it’s early in the morning when those who aren’t out partying are asleep and ill prepared for the crazy tales from these men’s nights.

You know that crackle give the best high
Give me a needle, a cartridge, a partridge, some tree, 45s and a 33, let it be
The Format by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Masta Ace & Mr. S.O.S.)

Crack Cocaine is a drug that is most commonly taken into the body by injecting it through a needle into the veins.

Deacon uses the words crack and needle to continue into a description of vinyl players and how they work, and how they can truly be addictive..

  • Crack refers to the slight popping and cracking noises record emit when they’re played.

  • A needle isn’t only used to inject things, but they’re also one of the primary parts of a record player, along with cartridges the needle is attached to.

Vinyls are seeing a time where their popularity is re-surging, and it’s truly an addictive hobby, as addictive as Crack Cocaine.

April 1st, 2014

The lyric is “crackle” not “crack will”, so in keeping with the concept of the song Deacon is lamenting how the vinyl crackle sound is the true format and the “best high”

The needle refers to the record needle

The drug reference here is ‘some tree’ meaning marijuana.

45 & 33 are record player speeds. Vinyl record sizes of 12" and 10" records spin at different speeds on the record player. 33 1/3 rpm and 45 rpm.

Even though Natti country as a bear-skin rug South California by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Tunji)

There isn’t anything more country than a bear-skin rug. However Natti is JUST AS country as one of these rugs. Even so, this has no deterrence to him about being with this California girl.

So what up?
Can you free me ‘fore my prints get back?
And they run em through the system and realize that I'm black
Drunk Dial by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Grieves & Murs)

This is where the famous, however mythical, “one phone call” Natti gets from prison begins.

He takes a shot at law enforcement, and how he fears since he’s black he’ll be arrested on charges of that. So he stresses the caller on the other end to hurry up with his bail pay.

With all these nice drinks, compliments of Dennis
Whoever the fuck that is
"Dennis is this!"
Two middle fingers up
"Dennis is this!"
Dennis tab maxed out on titties and fifths
Whoever the fuck Dennis, is Dennis is pissed!
Cus I don’t think that dude we was drinking with was Dennis at all, fam!
Drunk Dial by Cunninlynguists (Ft. Grieves & Murs)

We finally get some insight on what has happened to Natti during his wild night.

It seems to have started out perfectly, Natti had found himself with a man named Dennis, and they were having a great time. Dennis was covering all of his drinks, and paying for some fine strippers. They drank to such an extent that Dennis’s tab became maxed out. They were partying!

Unfortunately, this is where things went bad…

It seems that whoever Natti was drinking and having a good time with wasn’t Dennis, instead, it turned out to be a man who was just using Dennis’s tab to party for free. Which was only bound to end badly for the mystery man and Natti.
