If you follow fashion, you can follow my bars
If not, get your Hypebeast on, follow the blogs
S.L.U. by Clipse (Ft. Ab-Liva)

P mentions alot of high end brands in his raps. A hypebeast is someone who follows trends to the letter and can’t think for themselves — they wear whatever the blogs tell them to!

Don't get caught up in your feelings because
You just original fakes and I am the cause
S.L.U. by Clipse (Ft. Ab-Liva)

Double entendre!

  • Original Fake is a popular streetwear brand. Keeping with the theme of the verse

  • Push is saying other rappers are fakes of the original coke rapper (him).

I'm so consistent every verse
I prototype this coke flow
Y'all just my children
S.L.U. by Clipse (Ft. Ab-Liva)

When the slugs hits, I wonder will the pain last
See my life like a movie, inside my brain fast
I'm asking you, cause we used to rock the same ass
When I die, put me in mausoleum with the stained glass, the stained glass
When the slugs hits, I wonder will the pain last
See my life like a movie, inside my brain fast
I'm asking you, cause we used to rock the same ass
When I die, put me in mausoleum with the stained glass, the stained glass
Guns N' Roses by Clipse

Push ends the concept of the song. They both spit verses about guns, and now the “roses” come in.

A mausoleum is a building where the deceased are housed, often the same family or group of people will be buried together.
