He take his time, he counts it out, I weighs it up, that's real money Mercy by Kanye West (Ft. 2 Chainz, Big Sean & Pusha T) 4

Money isn’t the only thing Pusha uses a scale for. King Push has made so much money selling coke that he literally cannot count it all, so he weighs it, while his competition is small-time enough to count his money.

The ark building mad man from Hôtel-Dieu Exhibit B by Jay Electronica (Ft. Yasiin Bey)

Jay compares himself to Noah, a righteous fellow.

As said in Genesis 7:1,

And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Some of those unrighteous people probably though Noah was a fool. Goin' around, buildin' ships and shit, gathering the world’s animals in ancient Mesopatamia…

Jay once tweeted that he was born in New Orleans’s Hôtel-Dieu, now known as University Hospital.

I got thirty ounces in my shoe box Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

As Ross said on “John,”

Count the profits, you could bring ‘em in a Nike box.

Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

What’s beef?

Beef is when you need two gats to go to sleep!

He keeps the shotguns (shotties) on deck. His kitchen must be loud.

Let me tell you about the last beef
Ak-47 seven times seven feet
Gave that bitch a bloodbath
Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

The last person to get on Ross’s bad side got shot and might’ve been buried 49 (7 x 7) feet in the ground.

This person was literally bathing in their own blood. He should’ve stayed dirty…

Momma go to church and shit's so far from heavenly (Lord!) Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

Ms. Rozay is an avid churchgoer (she probably contributes to the collection plate, as well), but her life isn’t getting any better.

Notice the wordplay between “church” and “heavenly.” Ross’s word choice there is no accident.

Lord forgive me for my sin but I have to serve (Lord!)
Starin' out of a Benz is what I deserve
Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

Ross puns on “serve.” He both served his time in jail and served crack rocks to fiends.

Ross understands that drug pushing isn’t exactly a holy thing to do, but the Mercedes-Benz is calling his name.

Took me to Dade County for a short stay
It was somethin' small, but chickens was my forte
Deeper Than Rap (Lost Intro) by Rick Ross

After the police raided his parents' home, they arrested Ross and took him to Miami-Dade County Jail. It was for a relatively minor offense.

Ross was born to move chickens (cocaine rocks). Someone’s “forte” is a thing that they’re exceptionally good at.
