Wale quit the team, and he admits that is was because he had a bad attitude — he found out he wasn’t starting, then he just quit.
‘Le sets the time frame for his next line, revealing that, when he found out he wasn’t playing, he didn’t have anytime to fix it because the season was about to start.

The lines which surround this one show that B.o.B. has done just that: he used to make some truly real songs, like “Generation Lost”, and now he just makes the typical bragging rap songs.
It’s ironic that Bobby Ray would mention this, because a lot of his new album are, honestly, just bragging songs.
This slight variation to the hook ends the song on a champion’s note, with Cyclone obtaining what he was fighting for throughout the whole song
When you are speaking to a foreigner, who speaks English as their second language, you sometimes has to speak slowly so that they can understand.

Cyclone beat his opponent as bad as Nas beat Jay-Z in the legendary diss song Ether which had a hook featuring a chant of “I…. will….. not….. lose”

Cyclone will make moves in rap so huge it will inspire a movie — Kinda like The Notorious B.I.G.
