Brooks Robinson of the Baltimore Orioles (B'more) had a huge offensive season in 1964, finishing ahead of Mickey Mantle in the Most Valuable Player race.
The first two lines are a sample of 50 Cent’s “21 Questions”
In the “21 Questions” Nate Don asks next if she “would love [him] if he was down/ and out.”
Goldlink doesn’t ask her about that, but instead points out that in the past she didn’t even talk to him before he was a rapper.
There were always rumors that Jay-Z had feelings for Aaliyah. However she passed away in 2001 when her studio’s plane crashed shortly after take-off due to overcapacity.

He claims he doesn’t use a notebook to remember his lyrics, thus this allusion to the film The Notebook starring Ryan Gosling. Admit it, G, it’s a good movie.
Mack took one hit of the 90’s chronic and passed out immediately. When he came to Nas was right there explaining that “sleep is the cousin of death”.

I think he says ‘He must be bankin" not “He investment bankin”
