Dropped out of nowhere, Iller than Most is Del the Funkee Homosapien’s first solo release since 2012’s Root Stimulation. If the idea of that one guy from Deltron 3030 / Clint Eastwood spitting ridiculous fun (over what I can only describe as “mechanical” beats) interests you in the least, check it out.

Tryna make it to the top so I can let my dogs know it exist Higher by Big Sean

Big Sean’s trying to make it out the gutter and reach legendary status, so all those who he runs can know that there is hope out there.
Also, it is said that Dogs can’t look up, he’s saying he is making it there so his “Dogs.” know it exist even though they can’t see it. It’s wordplay.

‘Cause when you come from the bottom man it’s so hard to just get a glimpse
So hard to get a glimpse, so while I’m here I might take a pic
And show ‘em that it’s more to the world than tryna make a living
Like changing it then looking back and saying that we did it
Higher by Big Sean

In the ghetto, people have to work day to day in order to simply break even, and as such, their aspirations are limited. They aren’t thinking about things like “changing the world” as much as they are being able to pay their own bills. Being rich exists only as a far off fantasy. And so Sean, finally rich, wants to show that there is more than the daily grind.

I invented swag, Lean by Odd Future (Ft. Domo Genesis & Hodgy Beats)

A reference to Jay-Z’s line in “Otis.” (Also, Domo supposedly began his rap career going by the name “Yung Swag,” of all the dumb-ass names…)

Had this been you having this lavish
Habitual happiness at me you wouldn’t look backwards
You would have sex on condominium roof decks
The Don by Nas (Ft. Mazy) 1

If you had said lavish life, and was rich enough to buy habitual happiness, you probably wouldn’t think twice about fuckin on top of a condo
