Intelligent flow but the fans be getting dumb Realest Living Remix by Cyclone

Cyclone draws a contradiction here:

Although Cyclone’s music includes intelligent, clever lines, his fans get dumb to them — “getting dumb” meaning going crazy, dancing, etc.

Okay-kay-kay, we mobbing like we the black KKK Terrorist Threats by Ab-Soul (Ft. Danny Brown & Jhene Aiko) 3

This line is a great contradiction:

The KKK is an organization which has a mob of white people with the intention of torturing and ostracizing essentially anyone who isn’t white. But the KKK didn’t only victimize anyone who wasn’t white. They attacked anyone who wasn’t a white protestant. This part of it could be like the gangs, taking out anyone who isn’t in the same one as you. Soul compares the size of his crew to that of the organization, which has a lot of members…

Don’t go forgetting about the OG west coaster Cube and his fascination with the KKK, oh and that mobbin' bit.

This could also be a commentary on black on black murder in the U.S. — like a black gang acting as “the black KKK”, killing other blacks

I will, I will climb the highest mountain
Before the flood comes
War Is My Love by Kendrick Lamar

To avoid a flood where everyone at the lower levels get wiped out, Kendrick is going to climb a mountain to reach a high altitude.

This is a metaphor for his career, really: he’s vying to reach a higher level than the average person so that things that harm the average man will not harm him.

“When the flood comes” may refer to when the music industry will wipe out a lot of rapper when they’ll think “rap is really dead”
