Combining gorilla with lion, ain't lying
You can’t define them,
Wrecord Out by Pro Era (Ft. CJ Fly, Joey BADA$$, Nyck Caution & Ritty) 8

Joey uses lion/lyin as a homophone.

Lions are referred to as “king of the jungle” and gorillas are the largest genus of primates and closely-evolved to humans. If Joey’s bars were gorilla + lion, imagine that…

This line was actually used in an older song, by a New York rap group The Lox’s “Recognize”

Through ninth grade, I ain’t go to high school
I went to school high

I think Joey Bada$$ used this line paying homage to “The Lox”. Seeing how he tends to do that with a lot of older New York rappers, MUCH RESPECT.

I'mma make my way to first class
Got to keep a blunt though, I always pass
School High by Pro Era (Ft. Dyemond Lewis, Joey BADA$$, Kirk Knight & Nyck Caution) 6

Some subtle “first class” wordplay — Joey will get high through his blunt, but he’ll be flying smooth in first class, as in flights

“First class” is also tied in with Joey saying he will pass, as in passing class in school

Word play with “blunt” and “pass” as in the phrase “pass the blunt”, a common command among a circle of smokers.

Also “pass” as in pass the class.

But I watched it open up my mind and my chakras School High by Pro Era (Ft. Dyemond Lewis, Joey BADA$$, Kirk Knight & Nyck Caution) 6

A very common theme amongst Joey and his Pro Era crew.

Chakras are energy centers in our bodies used to balance energies and tap into healing powers, and Joey’s were opened up by the loud from the previous line

Cause I'm a great debater and my principles are greater School High by Pro Era (Ft. Dyemond Lewis, Joey BADA$$, Kirk Knight & Nyck Caution) 6

Imagine where the Great Debaters would be without the support of Denzel Washington’s character?

Joey has all the talent, but the “system” doesn’t support him

Note the wordplay of principal/principles. Since Joey’s morals are so firm, he can argue to get himself out of trouble, hence, he is a “great debater.” This annoys his principal, who obviously would not like getting outsmarted by a delinquent student.

Yeah Joey is saying his principal is mad at bro because he can talk his way out of breaking rules. But if Joey is saying principal hes just saying the principal is mad cause Joey talks shit

Although Joey is a great debater, it doesn’t matter because his principle, the “grader” has the ultimate decision
