This line has so much more to say about Joe’s mental state and re-occuring themes of his past and how he cant escape him. He makes the same reference multiple times in songs such as “In My Sleep” where he references “getting chased, couldn’t tell by who, then the hallway turned into a cliff” [..]. Joey here talks about getting chased, which is used as a base metaphor for his past and not being able to escape it.

Here Joe mentions his state of mental disarray where he can’t even enjoy the mainstream success that he is enjoying with slaughterhouse (See this interview) because of his past and his visions of prison and how his addictions and depression have left a permanent scar on his life..

This is easily one of the most under-rated bars and I could go on for hours explaining this, i’m sure you all get the hint. This is pure art, one of the finer pieces of Joe Buddens work.

All it takes is the smallest nigga in your camp to get eternal
Half a match book will transform to an inferno
Words of a Chameleon by Joe Budden

This has the same message as the line above about ol' boy Juwan Howard. Even though Juwan played a small part, he still was on the team that won it all. Being in good company can earn your greatness.

I am a lion, no, a lion king
I'm fly, no, I'm flier with my giant wings
We Back Soon by Lil Wayne

Wayne’s greater than what you give him credit for. He’s not small like a fly, but a giant in the rap game that stays fly.
