Nevermind shootin’: they ain’t show me where the gym was
That’s why I do a lot on spite
So if you, look up to me you got ‘em at the wrong height
I mean, I’m not a role model, I’m a piece of shit
No Church in the Wild by Joe Budden

Like Charles Barkley, Joe is not a role model. Following up on the Basketball theme, Budden doesn’t want you to look up to him because he’s a bad example. He responds based on his instincts, doing “a lot on spite,” meaning that a lot of his actions and words are a direct result of hatred; he does a lot on spite because he’s bitter that no one was there to guide him (perhaps in his early years.) Despite this hatred, he won’t shoot at you, because no one showed him where the (metaphorical) gym was (a play on shooting basketballs versus guns, and also potential reference to Drake’s diss verse towards Common on Stay Schemin', in which Drake references Kobe Bryant’s wife’s settlement of $150 Million following their divorce.) Lots of rappers come from hardships growing up (where shooting may be deemed a solution to a dispute) and make bad decisions, which would make them bad role models. Budden is using himself as a paradigm, thus explaining that rappers should not be viewed as such.

Joe might also be saying that no one gave him any opportunity to come up, in other words they didn’t even show him the metaphorical gym, let alone let him “shoot” with them (a reference to the Drake line.) Lots of people have been sleeping on Joe (unaware of his talent) and many of those same people probably never game him a chance. Thus, he sometimes acts out of hatred, feeling like he has nothing to prove and he deserves greater recognition. Since he acts this way, he doesn’t want to be looked up to cause he knows many of his actions are wrong.

Budden may also be saying that he wouldn’t allow a woman get close enough to take what he has earned, as Vanessa Bryant did with Kobe.

Got a chrome piece under his couch, but since Joe’s hood, he’ll let you know what he’s about by putting a boot print in your face with his Foams.

Diddy has been making money since the years of Biggie, and at the same time he’s been spending it. “Long” is an adjective showing that he has a lot of money.

Sunday we layin' low at Halo, sippin Cris and we straight Welcome to Atlanta (Coast 2 Coast Remix) by Jermaine Dupri (Ft. Diddy, Ludacris, Murphy Lee & Snoop Dogg)

Halo is a nightclub in Smithtown, just outside of NYC. If Diddy wanted to lay low, it’s natural that he would head to a spot outside of the city.

Cris is short for Cristal, which is an expensive champagne that goes for about $250+ a bottle.

Tell Flex to run it back and drop a bomb on it Welcome to Atlanta (Coast 2 Coast Remix) by Jermaine Dupri (Ft. Diddy, Ludacris, Murphy Lee & Snoop Dogg)

New York DJ Funkmaster Flex is a legend in the city, known for bringing big names onto Hot 97 and premiering hits. Flex' signature DJ trick is his classic explosion sound-bite. Being from NY, Diddy is paying homage to a man who essentially “runs the city,” who’s been in the DJ'ing business since the late ‘80’s and is most certainly a New York, if not a hip hop legend.

Acronym for “You Only Live Once,” often used an an excuse for girls to act out. The name of a restaurant in Miami, Drake popularized the phrase with his track The Motto (which Meek is spitting over.) Drake and Rick Ross (Meek’s MMG affiliate) are said to be releasing a Y.O.L.O mixtape in the coming months.

Ross took an especial liking to the phrase, for on Lord Knows‘ interlude, Ross shouts out what Drake fans now know as The Motto.

^No he’s referring to shoes. You can get slip on shoes, but not dresses.

November 9th, 2013

I think hes talking about women’s dresses getting slipped off if you consider the context.
