In Jodeci Freestyle, J. Cole made a mistake by saying:
I’m artistic, y'all are autistic, retarded
Even though Cole was the one who said it, Drake still feels responsible for the pairing of the words; offending a whole community.
Many might insist that Travis is no longer representing his own interests, but that he is a slave to someone else’s. Scott admits this and says that Jesus is his slave master.
Travis starts to talk to himself. The suicidal thoughts are taking over his mind.
In the last line he named 2 gods (Joseph, Allah) and then Mary who birthed Jesus. He calls himself the “kid of a disciple” which could mean he is calling himself a god.
“Black Ace” is referring to Ace Of Spades champagne.
Poured up heavily by rappers most notably, Jay-Z. The Black version is the most expensive!
Gymnasts do flips among other things in their sport. Rockie is flipping his money. In other words, making double what he spent.
When the candles are lit, you already know what’s about to happen
And candles help repel the smell of the trees Rockie is burning.
Rappers will try to hit up Rockie for some of his bars. But his lines are way too ill to share. “Bar” is the term for a line in rap.
A reference to the Black Card made by Visa. A card with no limit.
The rich own them for that reason, imagine all the balling out that one can do with no limit!
A melancholy, dark line on the low. Jigga admits that he has been put down by hate.
Even Jay-Z is a human being. Maybe there’s hope for the world yet!
Could be a reference to God, saying there’s been points in his life where he’s been on his knees to pray after being put through tough times.
