These are lyrics straight from the pad
Kixxie breaks down the misconception of how people “act a color”, and the way black people are portrayed to act is merely the style of the streets, not an ethnicity.
Qwel’s saying hip-hop doesn’t care about your typical lyrics heard on the radio. Rappers always talk about how endowed they are, the crazy shit they do, and all the drugs they do.

El might be saying he keeps MC’s running when he starts ripping the mic.
Sample from “The Whistler and His Dog”
Art and Yacht Klub used to silence all the haters by cracking skulls but not anymore. They let them talk.
Double entendre. Ho’s let Art and his crew into their cribs and then they proceed to get up in them(have sex). And also saying “we’re in the rap game” or “up in this place”
While Artie is still new, his thoughts are equal to a veteran rapper
