He wants to be the best of all times, by any possible mean, so he asks for forgiveness if you found his used mean careless (garish). (Remember that he first came off by dissing pretty much everybody).
That’s if he’s addressing you the listener, this could also ask God for forgiveness on how his wish came off. (In this sense, questionning God’s listening before wishing is kind of brash).

There it is. Bush’s inspiration.
They claim to be killers whereas he “deprived them from their bodies”, play on the previously stated “making them nobody’s” line. Basically they got nothing to kill with, they’re already dead.
Also sets up for the upcoming hollow metaphor.
Serial killers like to mention how many bodies they have meaning how many people they’ve killed. Having “No Bodies” means you’re no killer (not done much in the rap game).
ratchet = a hand gun — derived from tool.
He turns them to nobody’s as soon as they get in a beef with him.
The correct line here is “I’d mention them but they nobodys” meaning that he’s not gonna say names because they’re not important
Pointing out those who claim not doing it for cash, claiming they’re doing it to be up that pot, part of that mixture, the podium.
Their gloves aren’t covering nothing big, they’ve got nothing to fist-fight (lyrical skill) with, rendering them worthless to beef with.
The same meaning goes with “gloves” interpreted as condoms, covering hollowness ; they got no manhood to step up with, worthless to kill.
“She” refers to the rap game as his wife (common saying among rappers). So he just lets it do its thing until some whack rapper comes out and decides that it’s time for Joe to fuck with him.
The pool reference goes with the previous drowning metaphor.
Might also be a reference to Joe Buddens famous pool parties
They seem to be fond of the body drowning metaphors at Slaughterhouse.
goons = hired hitmen (referring to his crew here). mag = magnum gun.
Alaos, mag = magazine
