I eat red meat cuz tofu don't move me First Things First by Blu (Ft. Blu)

He’s talking about how some people believe in Islam. They wear Kufis, a west African hat, and don’t eat red meat because they can’t consume blood.

He’s also saying that he’s not like all these people getting caught up in various fads and trends. He just does his own thing and what he likes, not what people tell him he should like.

Wise
Guy's, try to imply
Like I should optimize on lies and cries
I find it harder now to author nouns and sounds
Til We Die by Blu

People tell him that he should dumb down his lyrics and talk about mainstream rap subjects (lies and cries), making it harder for him to write/produce

The last line is actually “I find it harder now to author nouns than sounds,” noting the fact that he’s been spending more time producing than rapping with releases like Open(theInstrumentalLP) and Sene & Blu’s A Day Late & A Dollar Short

Fuck You Lucy by Atmosphere

Slug has previously acknowledged his allegorical use of women in his raps, which we see in songs like The Woman With the Tattooed Hands.

In this song, it is not much different. However, where other female characters have represented abstract ideas and problems, Lucy is a fictional woman who Slug used as a medium to discuss problems with numerous ex-girlfriends, without having to drop any real names.

Slug would later say:

When I look back on it, 10 years later, I’m like ‘Man, by no means were any of those women in my life really so bad that they deserved to be demonized.

Of course, this was long after his Lucy Ford EP’s..which, coincidentally, sounds a lot like Lucifer..
