We grind, these niggas asking for some promo Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

“Grind” has many different connotations here. First of all, to “grind” is to work hard. While Odd Future puts in work, hangers-on hope for some free promotion by associating with them, and generally people want to get popular without putting in the effort. This could be taken as a shot at BranDun Deshay’s whose verse Mike replaces on this song

Also, since this is a weed song, “grind” refers to grinding up weed to put into joints, blunts, bongs, etc.

In skateboarding (which is a large part of the OF universe) terms, “grinding” is sliding your board along an edge of some kind

And I got a girlfriend so I'm a keep lying until the verse end, FIN Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

Since BranDun has a girlfriend, the last lines about leaving with hoes was a lie. Or maybe the lying he’s doing is to his girlfriend, so that she won’t catch on to his philandering ways

Best stay away when the door closed Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

When a teenage boy’s door is closed, it’s usually best not to enter, since there is a good chance they are jerking it. To walk in on BranDun busting a nut to one of his own home videos would be extra disturbing

Chica-Go-Getter from Odd Future, used to ride solo
Cause I ain't really care what the rest say
Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

It’s not exactly clear why BranDun and Tyler had a falling out (Deshay is no longer an OF member), but it might have something to do with Deshay’s standoffish attitude towards others.

In a overweight mother-lover, my tracks is filled with blubber
That's fat, who needs another producer?
Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

Overweight connects to the high cholesterol mention in the last line. To be “in the mother fucker” means to have a noticeably presence. BranDun does this by making “fat” tracks (blubber = fat). His beats are good, so why reach out to other producers?

The shit-list said that I'm nutty such a cashew Session by Tyler The Creator (Ft. BranDun DeShay, Hodgy Beats & Mike G) 5

“Shit” as in “poo” often contains undigested nuts. To be “nutty” is to be crazy, and cashews are relatively big nuts, so Tyler is very crazy

He says “Shit-Lips” as in a reverse of Dr. Lipschitz, the child psychologist from Rugrats. He makes a few refernces to Dr. Lipschitz throughout the album. This also makes more since than nuts in poop, because he’s saying that his psychiatrist said that he’s crazy.
