The word “malice” means to desire to harm someone; ill will. Pusha once described his brother as the “meanest man he has ever met”.
Raw refers to cocaine. Push uses it as a homophone to describe the cocaine he was dealing before rapping & describes his current “raw” rapping style.
The songs premise works around Push & Malice figuratively ending lives. Flexing their wordplay, they create a warning to other rappers in the game. Essentially saying:
We might be dope dealers, but we can rap too
Unlike his brother Push, Malice does introduce himself at the beginning of his verse.
He uses gun lingo to create a metaphor for his rhymes. Lookin' something like this:
I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death
Underestimate Malice and you’ll have two bullets in your chest.
Chill out, Malice is swerving in a Rolls Royce (RR) with his girl
Gene runs with common criminals. A bond ensures the holder of funds (cash). If they’re dippin' and not paying their bonds, violence will follow!
Hennessy is a popular choice of congac, served with ice.
Wice is the singular version of “twice” and “thrice”. Malice implies these other MC’s only care about money.
