Like, girl

Is easy to love me now?

You ain't talk to me before
Electronic Relaxtion by GoldLink

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.

And Aaliyah wouldn't miss her plane

Would this shit just be different or no Beyonce or Jay?
Electronic Relaxtion by GoldLink

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.

Goldlink wonders if Aaliyah’s life would have affected Beyonce’s musical career, or personal life (her marriage to Jay) for that matter.

I woke up in struggle for breath by Nas
He said sleep was the cousin of death, my God
At the Party by Macklemore

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”.

Respectfully Macklemore refers to Nas as “[his] God” (Nas modestly calls himself God’s Son):

I’m pretty sure he says “investment banking.” But my annotation should have included the fact that by paying for everything Lil' Dicky thinks the ex is making an investment in his girl. Since the song is published I can’t edit this… admin?

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