Flooded where they wasn't you see where the crowd turned? Speakers On Blast (Remix) by Skyzoo (Ft. Illmind, Lloyd Banks & Maino)

To continue on the drought analogy, he has such an abundance of drugs to sell that its “flooded” rather than in a drought

Told 'em that as long as I'm still up around the curve
None of 'em would ever remember what droughts were
Speakers On Blast (Remix) by Skyzoo (Ft. Illmind, Lloyd Banks & Maino)

As long as Sky is on the corner, the drugs will always be around

A drought in the drug game means there’s none of that particular drug available, atleast not any high quality stuff

When hes the supplier, there is no chance of this happening

When the drugs are low, and hard to come by

for the fiends having no access to drugs is equivalent to being here

with no water

The crowd pleaser emcees freeze then catch seizure
They praise the Lord of rap thesis, true believers

Black Thought wows the crowd with his lyrics and flow, any other rapper listening can’t handle how nice it is and begins seizuring

That's how a master degrades you Super Lyrical by Big Punisher (Ft. Black Thought) 2

all that pun was doing in the previous bars was shitting on who ever he was talking to. But he did it in an insane lyrically elegant manner.

How a master does it, as opposed to saying

ex. “Fuck you,
I’m going to cut you”

I could write it in the script and sell it
This kind of story many niggas don’t live to tell it
Moment for Life by Los

Los' life story is something that could be put into a hollywood script and sold to directors to make into a movie, it is that type of action packed, street life, rags to riches type of story

Similar to this on a much smaller scale

Also a possible drug reference. Drug dealers often have “Script-writers” (doctors who are willing to write prescriptions for fake symptoms) and sell it. Thus, many n*ggas don’t live to tell it as you would expect in the drug life. He’s saying there are just as few as of them who have survived the drug-deals game, as can tell such a story as he has.

But contrary to what haters would usually hope
When you talk about me now, tell them I used to be broke
Moment for Life by Los

There are haters who actually dislike an artist because they do not like the product(s) they release.

While there are others that just hate them for being successful, and doing something they can’t..

So those who hate Los want him to stay broke, but that is now a thing of the past and he has reached success (inking a deal with Bad Boy records)

he is making a reference to the movie New Jack city, where if you haven’t seen it yet, a crime lord ascends to power and becomes megalomaniacal while a maverick police detective vows to stop him.

That’d be the last mistake you ever made Remember the Titans by Joe Budden (Ft. Fabolous, Lloyd Banks & Royce Da 5'9")

You’d be dead

Linking to the previous line it is clear that pepper spray doesn’t affect budden. Probably should get some bear mace or tear gas.

Numb to my words now, maybe felt I was open
I cut so many people loose, do I need help with devotion
All In My Head by Joe Budden (Ft. Kobe & Royce Da 5'9")

He’s lied so many times about his lifestyle (drug use, family life) that he doesn’t even care when he lies, it doesn’t bother him, hes completely numb to it.

He’s lost so many people in his life solely through his own actions

He asks “Do I need help with devotion” as in does he need to find a way to stay true to people..

In the next line he says he asks that to his Lord and Savior, because no one else can answer that type of question (Although neither can his savior, through words anyways)

I’m plenty comfortable when danger’s around
And even more so when stranger's around
All In My Head by Joe Budden (Ft. Kobe & Royce Da 5'9")

Budden has been around danger his entire life growing up in the streets of Jersey, so he’s accustomed to it and it doesn’t bother him

He’s so comfortable with strangers because he considers most people strangers, no one truly understands him as he has stated many times through his lyrics
