Got that Hooters mentality, I'm never callin' back
You will never get ta work, if you ain't comin' with a rack
Hustle Hard (Freestyle) by Chop 1

Rack is slang for titties, but in the rap world, rack is slang for thousands. 1 Rack = 1 G = $1,000.

Hooters is known for hiring busty waitresses and the ‘less fortunate’ (ones without a big rack) rarely get a call back.

So like Hooters, if you don’t got a rack (enough money), Chop ain’t talkin business.

Dough long, go from Palm to Palm: no holdin' hands Hustle Hard (Freestyle) by Chop 1

Chop spends the shitload of money he has on traveling — from Palm Beach to Palm Springs to the Palms Hotel.

Lot of palms, but he isn’t talking about holding hands (which would require using the palms of your hand).

I'm on my dime shit, you rock with nickel bags Hustle Hard (Freestyle) by Chop 1

Dimes are “tens” and nickels are “fives”. The girls Chop runs around with are twice as hot than yours.

In addition, there was a heavy metal guitarist by the name “Dimebag Darrell” (RIP) who is considered the greatest by many. A “nickelbag” would be half that — thus, “rock” with “nickelbags”.

Guess it's Fried-day: no Rebecca Black Hustle Hard (Freestyle) by Chop 1

“Fried” is another way of saying “high” — something that marijuana tends to do to you. This terminology has led a lot of weed smokers to call Friday, “Fried-Day” (pioneered by rapper Bizzy Bone, who did a song called “Fried-Day”).

The Rebecca Black reference should be obvious.

Chop will stomp ya spark out, we will bring them cars out
Bet it stop ya ballin' like that NFL lockout
Hustle Hard (Freestyle) by Chop 1

Chop can one-up any motherfucker trying to be ballin' by bringing the cars out.

The National Football League (NFL) has initiated a lockout due to a dispute over a change in the collective bargaining act (CBA). A lockout is like a strike, except the employer keeps people from working until conditions are met. If it isn’t resolved, there will be no football season.

So, in each case, there will be no ballin'.
