Bake a cake, sweet
Jamaica trade in treats on the beach
That's That by MF DOOM

Jamaica trade = ganja
Treats = whichever dairy sweet you prefer (brownies, cake, etc.)
Eating cannabis food by the sea!

What you expect to get for free?
Shit from me, history
That's That by MF DOOM

If you don’t pay DOOM, you get nada

Also, possibly shit as in disrespect. And a history lesson.

This is also a reference to the line “Trees is free, please leave a key”… Guess he’s not planning on sharing his weed then.

When DOOM says “Shit from me, history”, he rightfully explains that the shit he says in his rhymes make history. A true legend.

Sing for things that's frail as a fingernail That's That by MF DOOM

He might be saying how rappers rap about topics that have no substance, or things that have no tangible value.

Possibly still on the topic of soldiers and how they sing or support things that are frail or weak, like the American system.

You're actors, coming at you with my flows Violin Freestyle by Kendrick Lamar

The actors line says most rappers that say they’re hard have an aura as hard as baby thighs. He’s revealing this fact through his rhymes

That's like two left shoes, you fools Violin Freestyle by Kendrick Lamar

This alludes to the previous line, saying their styles are distinct, like having two left feet.

Possibly alluding to this RZA song, but very unlikely since the RZA song is actually pretty good.

I'm so rude, my flow is so crude Violin Freestyle by Kendrick Lamar

He’s saying his flow is nasty/good, or he’s saying that his flow is literally crude, it IS an improvised freestyle in the middle of the street recorded with probably a cameraphone after all.

Yeah, I talk shit, I'm cocky with it
It's hard for you to admit it, but I'm one of the best in it
Chains by R.A. The Rugged Man (Ft. Killah Priest & Masta Killa)

He’s insanely cocky with his skill, as seen in the last line of this verse, where he claims to be one of the best in the game. He also does the same thing in many other songs of his, like “Laugh, Clown, Laugh” or “Tom Thum”.

Naming the best ever, I’m supposed to be listed

They say "Rugged, by now you should have at least blown"
It's funny, I'm mad famous for being unknown
Chains by R.A. The Rugged Man (Ft. Killah Priest & Masta Killa)

He’s been around for more than twenty years. Even Biggie said he was great, but circumstance is a terrible thing. However, he doesn’t even need that glamour and glitz shit. He chooses to stay underground and he’s famous for being what he is.

I watch mad rappers bite my shit and blow up
And make millions of what I created, that's tough luck
Lessons by R.A. The Rugged Man 1

RA wasn’t very successful in the industry, other mainstream rappers were able to use his ideas and make money of it while he never really blew. One of these rappers is, of course, Eminem.

These lines are similar to what he spits on the song “Make You Famous”:

You could jack the styles of underground rappers and claim you’ve created it
You could get cash and be massive
